Chapter 15: The Gloves come off (back to Nessie’s P.O.V.)
I woke up gasping for air. What a strange dream, I was with Jacob and the strange girl that is in the pictures that Sienna draws. She was with Seth the four of us were in the forest when all of a sudden the guys phased and threw us on to their backs and fled in terror, something evil was descending on us, I curled down onto Jacob as low as I could and held onto his balahibo so that I wouldn’t fall. My hands brushed his face and he shuddered. I couldn’t tell if it was due to his own fear or to the fear that I had projected to him through my thoughts as I touched his face. It came down upon us faster and faster no matter how rapid our pace was. Finally I felt hands gripping me and pulling me away, Jacob phased back and was fully clothed. He screamed, “Renesmee!” as he fell onto his knees with a look of pure horror etched deeply in his handsome face. And that was when I woke up. I sat there gasping for air; it had all been so vivid. I ran a hand trough my sweaty hair and then grabbed my phone. I dialed a familiar number, and waited nervously as it rang. “Hello?” he mumbled sleepily.” Jake?” I asked anxiously. “What’s wrong?” He asked now fully awake. “Are you alright?” I asked him. “Yea I’m fine he asked curiously “why wouldn’t I be?” I breathed a sigh of relief, “it’s – nothing” I stammered. “Nessie,” he sinabi severely. “Ok, I just had this horrible dream that something happened to us in the woods.” I told him the details of my dream. “Someone or something took me away from you..” I sinabi timidly, realizing how foolish I must sound. He relaxed a little when he realized that I wasn’t in any imminent danger. “Ness I’m fine and you are fine it was just a creepy dream. You have had a rough week I am sure it as caught up with you mentally. uy how about I come over and we go and hunt together and then we can do something fun.” I smiled; he was hell-bent on making sure I was eating normally. “Sure” I told him. “I will see you in a bit” he said, “I pag-ibig you princess.” I smiled into my phone, “love you too” I murmured. After I hung up I decided to take a paliguan I know it’s ridiculous since I was about to go and hunt but I felt so sweaty and disgusting from my nightmares. I took a fast paliguan and slipped myself into a pair of jeans and a tee shirt. I ran a brush through my damp hair and went towards my parents' room looking for them. My mother was in the little courtyard outside of her bedroom. She looked beautiful; her diamond skin shimmered in the sun as she worked on the bulaklak that were left adorning her and my father’s outdoor sanctuary. “Morning mom, I sinabi as I kissed her glittering cheek. “Morning sweetie, how did you sleep?” “Um alright “I sinabi looking down. I couldn’t lie to my mother she knew me better than anyone. She noticed the circles under my eyes and looked at me gravely, you didn’t sleep well enough though, did you,” she voiced that madami as a statement than a question. “Um I just had a bad dream that’s all,” I looked away quickly hoping she would drop it. She looked at me again as if trying to dissect my thoughts but then she looked back to her work. My mother wasn’t one to go overboard on questioning, I was always thankful for that ibingiay the fact that to my father I was an open book, perhaps that was why my mother didn’t tanong me so much she had no need since my father would tell her everything anyway. “So what are you doing today?” She asked casually. “Well Jake is coming over and we are going hunting,” “Good, you need to.” “So what is going on with you and Jake?” She asked with a grin. “Mom I am so in pag-ibig with him, he is perfect. I want to marry him someday, he’s the one.” My mother smiled at me and hugged me, “I am so happy for both of you” her eyes seemed to go to a different place, “Jacob is a great guy Nessie, I am happy for him that he finally has you he really deserves to be happy, I guess I just have some reservations because I am not ready for you to be a grown up. I couldn’t pick a better guy for you though. He loves you with every piece he has to give. I would even dare to say he loves you as much as me and daddy do, but if your father heard that I would be in trouble” she chuckled to herself. I smiled at her, “thanks mom, I have never been so happy.” She kissed my cheek and said, “then I am blissfully happy for you, the way you describe it, reminds me of how it felt when I first met your father and I couldn’t talk to anyone about it I’m so glad you can come to me. Enjoy every moment with him, my darling.” She stood up and went back to her flowers, “so what else are you doing today,” she inquired. “I think that we might do something with Seth and Sienna.” My mother looked up, “that reminds me, did you tell her anything about Jake and the guys at La Push?” She asked. “No I swear I didn’t, I’m not sure what made her dream about me with a wolf, I is odd.” My mother looked at me curiously, “I is odd…” she concurred. “So what is going on with Seth and Sienna?” she asked me. I smiled broadly, “it seems that our little Seth has finally imprinted.” I practically squealed. My mother smiled,” that’s wonderful, he is such a good kid, and I felt so badly for him. That just leaves Leah, huh?” I nodded. “Poor Leah, she will find someone.” my mom sinabi to herself. There had been a lot of animosity between Leah and my mother in the past but that was resolved now, especially since her mother had been dating my Grandpa Charlie for so long now. “Aw don’t worry Bells Leah can take care of herself.” Jake sinabi with a grin as my mother and I both turned around in surprise. “How long were you standing there for?” My mother asked sharply, she was not one to express emotion easily and she was nervous that Jake had witnessed one of the few moments that she had let down her guard. He walked over to us. He looked amazing, he wore a leather dyaket over a tight white tee sando and dark washed jeans. He put his burly arms around me and kissed my forehead. “Long enough to know that someone sort of has a thing for me” he teased as he ruffled my hair. I smacked him, “don’t ruin it for yourself” I muttered with mock aggravation. He laughed, and then he looked into my mother’s eyes. “Thank you” he sinabi “you were right you know I do pag-ibig her as much as you and Edward do. I would do anything for her, I promise you that.” My mother looked back at him “just don’t hurt her…” she trailed off Nawawala in some forgotten memory. “Never” he promised seriously. “Ok guys I sinabi I’m still here…” they both snapped out of their moment and looked at me with smiles as they cracked up. “You are kind of dressed up for hunting Jake” my mom pointed out. “I know I thought I would take Nessie somewhere fun after.” “Where are we going?” I demanded. “I’m not sure yet” he admitted. We all laughed again as I kissed my mother on her cheek. “Bye mom” I said. “Be careful” she called as Jake took my hand and we ran off together. When we got outside he led me into the woods. He looked down and pulled me to him and he kissed me sweetly. “So you want to marry me, huh?” he questioned. “Yes I do, “I told him. I placed my hands on his face and shared the fantasies that I had dreamt up of us walking down the aisle and chasing our beautiful dark haired babies. He smiled at me and kissed me again this time with even madami passion. “Your father won’t appreciate any of that you know” he teased. “He’ll get over it” I reassured him. He took my hand and led me through the woods it was a crisp September morning. My paborito time of the year. “I will marry you someday he promised, “When the time is right and your parents feel you are ready.” “That might not be for a long time,” I pointed out the blatantly obvious fact that my father would not be in rush to marry me off. “I don’t care he vowed, “I will wait for you as long as it takes.” I kissed him and then he pulled away and told me to wait while he phased. “And then,” he joked “we race!” I rolled my eyes at him as he disappeared among the shadows. A few minutos went sa pamamagitan ng and then I heard a low guttural growl and then nothing. I started to run pasulong to make sure that he was alright but he ran out of the bushes in his pants, carrying his sando and coat. The look on his face was fierce and terrifying. “What is wrong?” I asked in a panic-stricken voice. “It’s Seth” he spat the words out. “He told Sienna everything.” “What?” I asked in disbelief. “When you say everything do you mean…” “Yes. He sinabi angrily “She knows everything about you and your family, she will keep the secret and is not afraid, although she should be.” I looked up at Jake with tears in my eyes,” Jake she is in grave danger. If the Volturi find out…” I couldn’t even finish my thought as I forced my eyes shut and placed my hand on my forehead. “I know” he sinabi coldly. “Seth didn’t know. He is coming here now with Sienna so we can regroup and decide what to do.” He took my hand and led me to my grandparent’s house so that we could face the music. Tears streamed down my cheeks as I feared for my best friend’s life.
