24. The Fire

As I awoke I could see the rain sliding down my window and the tapping coming from the roof. It looked very cold and dreary outside. I turned over on my side to see Jake lying, snoring his head off, yet he was still so cute. I leaned over and kissed him on the cheek. I sat up in bed and looked at the clock, it was 2:00pm. I guess I slept in so late due to the fact I got up so early the day before. I quickly changed out of my pyjamas and into some clothes. I walked over to the mirror and poured water over my face to ensure I was completely awake before I putting a towel to my face. When I was all done I opened my door very quietly so that I wouldn't wake Jake, and the same with closing it. I walked downstairs to find everyone in a very happy mood, almost everyone anyway.

"Good morning, sleepy head or should I say good afternoon," dad said sweetly.

"Yeah well I don't care because I had the best sleep ever," I said smiling.

"I'm sure," Emmett said smirking.

I narrowed my eyes as I gave him a piercing look whilst my dad whacked him round the head.

"Ow, what was that for?" Emmett shouted.

"You should know," dad said.

If looks could kill Emmet would be dead, well least to say, three times over. I looked around the room and noticed a few people were missing.

"Where is everyone?" I asked curiously.

"Oh well your mum, Alice and Rosalie are shopping in Paris," dad explained.

"What Paris, why didn't any of you wake me?" I demanded.

"Because they left at about 9:00am and you didn't take getting up early so well yesterday," dad said. 

"Yeah that was playing a game that I new I would win anyway, but this is shopping, in Paris!" I said.

"I'll be sure to keep that in mind next time," dad said sarcastically reading the paper.

"Sure you will," I said rolling my eyes.

I went into the kitchen were grandma was making a chicken dinner for Jake.

"Do you want any help?" I asked kindly.

"No thank you everything is set, we just have to wait for the chicken," she said.

"Oh ok," I said smiling.

Jake came down the stairs and into the kitchen.

"What smell's so good?" He asked curiously, kissing me on the cheek, sleepiness still in his voice.

"I'm making a chicken dinner for you, for later," grandma explained.

"Oh, thanks," he said greatfully.

"But in the mean time, here is your breakfast," she said handing him a plate full of food that smelled even worse than yesterday.

"Thanks Esme, you know sometimes I think you spoil me," he said grinning.

Grandma smiled at him.

"You think," Jasper said.

"Jasper," she warned.

"Don't listen to him Jacob, you just tuck into that," she said.

"Yes ma'am," he said eating his food.

A few minutes later the front door opened and mum, Alice and Rosalie walked in, their hands full with shopping bags.

"How was your shopping trip girls?" Grandpa asked entering the kitchen.

"It was ok, I guess," mum said.

"Ok," Rosalie and Alice screamed.

"It was fabulous, we went around like a hundred shops," Alice beamed.

"I'm glad you liked it," grandma said going over to them.

"Nessie, you have to come see what we brought you back," Alice said grinning.

Then I suddenly took interest in what they were saying, I jumped out of my seat and strode over to them.

"It's in this bag, or this, maybe it's this one," Alice said looking through the bags at top speed.

"Here it is," she said holding up a lovely white dress that sat above the knee, it had silver sequins over the top of it.

"It's beautiful," I said admiring it.

"That's not all, here are the shoes," Rosalie said holding up a pair of silver sandals.

"They are lovely, thank you," I said hugging them both.

"I thought you might say that," mum said smiling.

"FIRE!!" Jake shouted still chewing his breakfast.

I spun round and looked over, all I could see were the flames coming from the oven, the chicken was on fire.

"Oh no!" Grandma said running over to it.

She opened the oven, greyy smokes came billowing out, she lifted the tray with the chicken on and sat it on the counter.. It was still on fire. I ran over to try and help but once I got closer to it the flames became bigger.

"OW!" I cried holding my hands out infront of me, protecting my face.

Everyone gasped, I slowly removed my hands from my face, the fire was out. I grabbed a towel and tried to waft the smoke away. I was stunned to see the chicken was frozen.

"What just happened?" I asked confused looking at my hands then back to the chicken.

"You, you froze the fire," dad said stunned.

"But, but how?" I asked.

"You just keep coming out with new gifts, don't you?" Grandpa said smiling.

"The gift to do what exactly?" I asked, confusion sweeping across my face.

"To freeze things, I guess," he said.

"Cool," Emmett grinned.

"How many gifts do you have?" Alice asked bewildered.

"Ok that has to be it, I can't have more than two gifts. That's insane," I said.

"Anything is possible," dad said opening a window to let the smoke out.

I was still stunned that I had another gift and so was everyone else.

"I don't suppose.... no probably not," Rasalie said.

"What?" I asked curiously.

"Well I was wondering if you could freeze things, then does that mean you can unfreeze things aswell," she explained.

"I'm not sure," I said wondering.

"Only one way to find out," Rosalie said picking up the tray that held the chicken.

She carried it outside, it was still raining but not as heavily as it was earlier. Everyone came out to see what she was up to.

"What are you doing?" I asked.

"Try and unfreeze this," she said.

"Ok, I'll try," I agreed walking closer to the chicken that had frozen flames coming from it.

I held my hands up, closing my eyes and concentrated on what made me freeze it in the first place. I was thinking of how scared I was that the flames had almost touched my skin. My hands had the tingly feeling as it had before, so that meant it was working. I opened my eyes and could see that the ice was melting and the flames were breaking through. Then I stopped and the fire continued, but the rain put it out seconds later.

"Now that's cool," Emmett said.

"That's what I thought," Rosalie said smiling.

"Come on everyone inside," grandma shouted.

We all trudged back into the house, Rosalie was stopd grinning.

"You all know what this means, don't you?" She said smiling.

We all stood there confused.

"If Nessie can unfreeze things then that must mean she is able to unfreeze us, we could be humans," she said smiling.

"What? Is that possible Carlisle?" Alice asked.

"Yes but........." he began.

"Well then unfreeze us Nessie," Rosalie said.

"Rosalie you don't understand, if I even attempted that, I would probably die trying and even if I was successful.........." I trailed off.

"Nessie is right, it would kill her," grandpa said backing me up.

"Well then scratch that thought because my daughter is not risking her life so you can start one Rosalie," dad said protectively.

"Wait a second, you want me to unfreeze you so you can have a child?" I asked softly.

"Yes," she said softly.

I turned around and started thinking of possibilities and then it came to me.

"I have an idea, it might not work but your willing to hear any possibilities right?" I asked Rosalie who was in Emmett's arms.

"Yes, of course," she said sounding almost as if she were in tears.

"What if, what if I just unfroze your womb, I mean couldn't that work?" I asked.

"Even if it did work, we would be talking about an immortal child here," grandpa tried to explain.

"But with my human side the child would be like me, half human and half  vampire, would it not?" I asked.

"Is that true Carlilse?" Rosalie asked.

"It sounds correct, yes," he stated.

Rosalie's face lit up.

"Do it Nessie," she said giving me the go ahead.

"Ok," I said taking a deep breath.

I held my hands out and touched were her womb would be, I felt my hands going tingly again and I could see that it was working so I pulled my hands away gently when it was done.

"Did it work?" Rosalie asked hopefully.

"Do you feel any different?" Grandpa asked her.

"I'm not sure," she said.

"Well there is only one way to find out," I said smiling.

Confusion spread across her face.

"The bathroom," I explained.

"Oh, right," she said getting up.

We waited for five minutes until she finally came back downstairs.

"Well?" Mum asked.

"It worked," she said running into Emmett's arms.

He swung her around for ages before putting her down, they just stood there smiling at each other.

"Congratulations," grandma said.

"Rosalie," mum said.

"Yeah?" Rosalie replied.

"You do realise that you can't have a child by just  simply standing there," she said raising her eyebrows.

"Right," Rosalie said running upstairs grabbing Emmett's hand on the way.

We all laughed as they exited the room.

Jake wrapped his arms around my waist and kissed my neck. Dad came over to us.

"I'm so proud of you Nessie, you don't know how happy you have made them," dad said kissing my forehead.

"Yeah, well they deserve it," I said before hearing a big bang come from upstairs.

"Here we go," Alice said.

"As long as my house is in one piece I'll be happy," grandma said.

I chuckled softly.

"Since the chicken is no more for dinner, how does a salad sound Jacob?" Grandma asked.

"A salad sounds perfect Esme," he said smiling.

"Good," she said heading for the kitchen, Jake following her.

It was just then thinking about how happy I had made Rosalie, I thought about Alice and Jasper and how they might want the same.

"Nessie, before you ask us we're not ready. We need a bit of time to think about it," she explained.

"Sure take all the time you need, I was just wondering," I said smiling.

"Ok, well thanks anyway," she said hugging me.

Once grandma was done making Jake's dinner she served it and he started eating. I wondered now that if Rosalie did have a child would that make everyone think about moving, I really didn't know. It's times like this when I wish I could read people's minds. Jake finished his salad.

"That was lovely, thanks Esme," he said smiling, showing his bright, white teeth.

"I'm glad you liked it," she said reaching for the plate.

"It's ok I'll get the dishes, go put your feet up," Jake said thoughtfully.

"Thank you," she said heading for the front room.

"I'm going to bed," I said getting up.

"Good luck trying to get any sleep," Alice said chuckling.

"Don't you worry I'll get sleep alright," I said walking up the stairs.

"Night," mum said, calling after me.

When I got to my room, I was still able to hear the noise coming from Rosalie and Emmett's room.

"If you both don't mind I'd like to go to sleep," I yelled.

"Ok, sorry," Rosalie shouted back.

I heard laughter drift up the stairs. I got changed into my pyjamas and laid down in my bed with the covers over me. So much drama for one short day, so you can see why I was so tired. I fell asleep as soon as my head touched the pillow.
