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 enjoy!!
“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 out.
“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 this house.
“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!!!
