CHAPTER 28: WHAT HAPPENED…
(Jacob Black’s Point Of View)
When I woke up the next morning, Renesmee was sleeping on her side, still fast asleep. The sun was shining in my room and I was sure that was what woke me up. I sighed and looked over at my wife. She was still in the same position that she was in last night, her stomach a mountain under the blankets. I went to stroke her hair, but my hand stopped in mid air.
I didn’t want to risk waking her up. She needed her rest and she needed to get calm again. After our shock yesterday, I knew that she needed time to start thinking of us and our new family.
But that did not mean that I wasn’t upset by what she did yesterday before going to bed.
Did Renesmee really regret marrying me? Did she really regret getting pregnant?
No, I told myself, she was upset. She doesn’t know how to say her thoughts and feelings.
But that still didn’t mean that I didn’t feel hurt by her reaction.
I sighed and slowly and silently got off the bed. I made sure that Renesmee was still sleeping peacefully before I silently left the room. I shut the door behind me and went to the kitchen. I went straight to the fridge and realized that when I opened it that everything was always spoiled. I sighed and looked at the clock. It was almost noon.
I went into the garage and I got the garbage can and I just started to put in every content in the fridge. It was all gone. I would somehow have to go shopping. I couldn’t leave Renesmee here alone though.
I sighed. When the entire fridge was cleared, I started to take the full garbage bag back into the garage when I looked at the sink and saw that there was still dishwater in it and there was clean plates and other things on the drying holders. I felt my stomach drop. Of course Irina caught them by surprise. Of course that they were in the middle of something.
I sighed and let go of the garbage bag and sunk against the cupboard and sat on the ground. I pulled my legs to my chest and I put my eyes into them and sobbed.
This shouldn’t have happened. I should’ve got Irina way before this. More than half of our large family was going to die if they weren’t dead already. Sam was going to loose Emily and their kids would probably remember nothing of their mother. Shauna Leigh, Fred, and Haylynn were innocent in this they were here in their own free will. Jarred might not ever see Kim again. Seth and Leah might loose their final parent. Not t mention that Quil and Claire are going to be crushed if their kids don’t come home alive.
If it wasn’t for Renesmee then my entire family would be gone. It was hard enough on me when my mom died. I couldn’t go through that pain again. I couldn’t loose another person. I couldn’t loose my sisters. There was no way that I could loose my father. My dad was my hero.
Suddenly, warm arms wrapped around me. I was so out of it that I didn’t even notice anyone coming. I looked up to see Renesmee kneeling before me, trying to completely hug me, but her stomach got in the way. She had a worried expression on her face and she then leaned forward and put her forehead to mine.
“I should’ve been here. I should’ve protected them.” I whimpered.
“Jake, there must’ve been a lot with her. You wouldn’t be able to do anything. You might have died.” she told me.
The tears kept coming and both of us were silent for a long time, but she let me hide my face in her shoulder and she held me like that for a long time.
