28. Exploring

"Morning Nessie," Emmett shouted right in my face.

I screamed, rolling off the bed before falling onto the floor face first.

"We heard yelling," grandpa said rushing into the room, "Nessie are you ok?" 

"No, that thing over there made me jump, and fall out off bed," I snapped, whilst grandpa helped me up.

"Emmett, what have we told you about doing these things?" Grandpa asked, not really wanting an answer.

"Hey, you said wake her up, I was just following orders, sorry," he said rolling his eyes.

"Why was there an order to wake me up?" I said looking up at grandpa curiously.

"Breakfast is ready and we thought you might want to have some," grandpa explained.

"Oh, well thanks but no thanks, I think I'll pass on breakfast," I replied as gratefully as I could.

"Ok, Emmett give Nessie some privacy, this is her room," grandpa stated.

"Tell me something I don't know," he said raising his eyebrows.

He walked over to the door, before closing it he stuck his tongue out at me. I started shaking my head in fury, but then I relaxed, I'm not going to give Emmett the satisfaction that he wants. I made my bed before changing into a comfortable outfit. I then decided to venture downstairs to the front room where I found everyone. I looked around the room, it was similar to the one back in Forks with it's pale walls and furniture.

"Morning, sleep well?" Dad asked.

"Yeah I did, no help from Emmett though," I said smirking.

"I was following orders, give me a break," Emmett cried crossing his arms across his chest.

"Yeah, yeah," I said teasing him before sitting down next to Jake.

"You sure you don't want breakfast Ness?" Jake offered while eating his own breakfast.

"I'm absolutely positive," I said looking at the vile goo on his plate.

"Ok, more for me then," he said grinning.

"It's a boy," Alice shouted, before grandpa went to check Rosalie to find out the gender of the baby.

"We're going to have a boy?" Rosalie asked looking up at Emmett.

"Yes, there will be more boys in the house," Emmett beamed, "we need more testosterone."

We all rolled our eyes.

"Congratulations," we all shouted.

"Ok we need to go shopping, I know this perfect place just around the corner," Alice squealed excitedly.

"Great, by the way, Emmett's coming with us instead of Bella," Rosalie said winking at mum.

"What," Emmett and mum squealed.

"Yeah, I mean Bella needs some time off from shopping and you never come so your coming and that's final," Rosalie stated, looking up at Emmett.

"Thanks Rose," mum said grinning.

"Fine, but we're only shopping for the baby not for you too because I am not going just so you can look at handbags all day," Emmett said looking over at Alice then back to Rosalie.

"Actually it was jewellery today we went shopping for handbags last week Emmett," Alice corrected him.

"Ok, well we should go now before the shopping centre gets packed," Rosalie said running for the door.

"Wait a minute," grandma said looking over at grandpa.

We all looked at them.

"I am going to the local hospital to see if there are any jobs available, and Esme has a meeting with the principal of Manhattan High School today," grandpa announced.

"What, school already, come on," Emmett moaned.

"Emmett, it is important that we get you all into school as soon as possible, we don't want to raise any suspicions now do we?"  grandma asked as we all looked down at the floor, "well then it's settled." 

"Fine, we're going now," Alice said grabbing Rosalie's hand who was grabbed Emmett's.

"Bye," I said just before the door slammed.

"I think I'm going to go explore for a bit, want to come?" Jake said looking at me.

"Sure," I said smiling, taking his hand in mine.

"Bye Nessie, bye Jake," mum shouted, calling after us.

As we walked out the door, the wind blew right into our faces. It was a lot windier out here than it was back in Forks because we had our very own beach that was right outside the house. When we got out of sight of the beach there were a lot of buildings that were huge, it would hurt your neck if you looked up for a certain length of time. We visited the Empire State Building and took lots of pictures, the scenery was incredible. Then we went to the Liberty Island to climb the Statue of Liberty. As we were walking up the stairs, people were panting for breath and honestly looked like they were about to collapse. Jake and I of course were fine but we had to fake it.

"Why does this thing have to be so high up, I wish we would have taken the elevator," Jake cried, acting like he was tired.

"I know this isn't normal," I said playing along.

"Got that right," a woman said from behind us.

We chuckled under our breath and continued to climb the stairs, when we finally reached the top it began to get dark and all of the lights coming from buildings were lit all over Manhattan. It was beautiful. Jake put his arms around my waist as we looked at the view.

"I'm glad we moved here," he said smiling.

"Yeah, me to," I said pulling him closer.

I reached up to him and his lips met mine, I put my arms around his shoulders and we stood there for god only knows how long. It was very romantic and our move to Manhattan was sealed with that kiss.

"We better go, before we get 100 calls and texts from everyone," I said realizing the how late it was.

"Yeah," he said leading us back down the staircase.

We were the last two people there so we ran down the stairs and were at the bottom in no time. Then we got the boat back to the city and made our way back to the house. I opened the door to find everyone sitting down sulking.

"What's wrong?" I said knowing I wouldn't like what was coming next.

"We're going to school tomorrow, tomorrow," Emmett said flipping out.

"What why so soon?" I asked.

"Because the principal said it would be best to get you all started as soon as possible and I said why not tomorrow, so you are all starting tomorrow," grandma said.

"Well I guess I'm excited, I mean it is my first time in a public school," I said flopping down onto the couch.

"Yeah, well, this is my hundredth, think about how I feel," Emmett said, as if he were going to cry.

"Exactly how is this going to work, I mean your not going to say you adopted 8 teenagers, are you?" Jake asked looking at grandma and grandpa.

"Well no, this is how we are going to do it. Emmet and Rosalie you will both say you are eighteen. Jasper, Alice, Edward and Bella you will all say you are seventeen and all of you will be our adopted children. Nessie you will say you are sixteen and that you are Edward's cousin who has moved in with us along with your boyfriend Jacob who is also sixteen," grandpa explained.

"Me, pass for sixteen?" Jake laughed.

"You are tall for your age," grandma said.

"Ok then I guess I am sixteen," Jake said grinning.

"I need to go and look for what I am going to wear," Alice said running up the stairs.

"I'm off to bed, night," I said.

"Night," everyone called after me as Jake and I started up the stairs.

When we got to our room I changed into a pair of cute, powder blue pyjamas and opened the window a bit to air the room out. I walked into my bathroom and brushed my teeth after Jake. After I was done I put my toothbrush back into the cabinet and turned to face Jake.

"How do I look?" He said showing his teeth while grinning.

"Perfect," I said honestly.

He smiled and then narrowed his eyes.

"What?" I said suspiciously narrowing my eyes to mirror him.

He lifted me up over his shoulders and spun me around before sitting me on the bed and tickling me.

"Jake stop," I cried, tears of laughter pouring out of my eyes.

When he finally stopped he hung over me, staring into my eyes before leaning in to kiss me. He closed his eyes and that's when I grabbed him and started tickling him ten times worse than he tickled me.

"Nessie," he said laughing. "Ok, you win, you win."

I stopped.

"I always do," I teased.

I leaned in and kissed him on the lips, his lips moving with mine. We both climbed into bed and fell asleep in one anothers arms.
