Chapter 11 Snap shot >> Too Close for Comfort
This is some dialogue between Jacob and Rosalie at the
dinner party. I didn't think it fit with the rhythm of the
chapter but I thought it would be fun to post anyways and a few
readers have asked that I post this, so here it is!! Hope you
"Sweetheart what is going on?" Aunt Rose asked then her eyes
flitted to Jacob "What did you do to her you vermin"
"Aunt Rose!" I said sternly
"You know what blondie I…"
"What Jake another blonde Joke? How original you mutt" she spat
"Oh and mutt is the first time I've heard that one…right?" Jacob
dropped my hand that he'd been holding.
"Can you guys please stop" I ordered. "Not in front my Grandpa at
least" I looked over to my grandpa Charlie he wasn't paying us
any attention; he'd grown use to the fact that any family events
where Jacob and Aunt Rosalie were a fight would surely ensue.
"Jake you promised" I hissed
"Hey Rose…I have a new one" Jacob ignored my plea. Aunt Rose
sighed as she folded her arms across her chest -not making eye
contact with anyone.
"How do you make a blonde laugh on a Wednesday?" Jacob continued.
I think I was more annoyed with the bottomless pit of blond jokes
Jacob had stored in his mind than Aunt Rosalie was at this point.
I swear he had to have a book of blonde jokes hidden somewhere in
"Come on Rose… guess"
Aunt Rosalie glared at him making the saying 'if looks could
kill' that much more literal.
"Tell her a joke on a Monday" he concluded
Aunt Rose and I both glowered at Jacob. Grandpa Charlie had a
smirk on his face.
Uncle Emmett laughed, and tried to play it off as a cough which
made me giggle slightly. Aunt Rose turned quickly towards him;
her eyes provoking fear to the furthest extent. Then her eyes
were locked on mine.
"I'm laughing at Uncle Em" I defended
Jacob had a mischievous smirk on his face. I would kill him after
everyone left. I looked at him and mouthed "Your dead"
His smile grew wider as he mouthed back "No…your aunt is" he
chuckled and said "get it…?" a loud.
"I can hear you" Aunt Rose spat out vehemently
"And I can …smell…you" Jacob countered.
"You want to talk about smells? Do you really want to go down
that road you mangy…"
"Stop it!" I yelled at the top of my lungs. The whole room was
quiet and still.
"Ah…Nessie's right guys let her tell us her news" Grandpa Charlie
intervened, his face finally lifting from his -now-empty plate.
"Thank you, Grandpa" I exhaled.
Jacob looked at me apologetically, I rolled my eyes.
Aunt Rose sighed before she spoke "I'm sorry Nessie…please go on"
I sighed before I continued.
"Ok, everyone Jacob and I love each other…a lot. You all know
that by now"
The chapter continues in its normal format after this. It
was just a little something, I hope you enjoyed…Will be working
on Chapter 20 starting Tuesday!!!
