===================================================

 

“Okay, so what the hell are you doing here at this time of the night? It’s dangerous to walk in the woods at night.” Jacob chided, frowning. 
I shrugged, hugging my chest, hoping he wouldn’t notice the shredded sleeve of my shirt. 
“I couldn’t sleep. And I know you guys patrol during the nights, so what’s the deal?” I simply stated, starting to feel cold when the rain had stopped and the wind blew stronger, freezing my skin. 
“That might be true, but still – it’s dangerous. And by the way – Why aren’t you wearing a coat? You’re soaked through the bone Mells, do you want to get sick or something?” he was wincing, acting like he could tell me what to do. 
“So what Jake? Like I said; I couldn’t sleep so I got out for a run. And now, if you don’t mind, I’m heading back home for coffee.” I said snarky, seeing him frown and grimace more. 
“Fine, do whatever you want but I’m telling you – When you get yourself killed during those rare walks in the woods, don’t cry out on me.” he said, raising his hand as if doing nothing wrong. I needed to prevent myself from barking out a laugh – As if!

“Whatever Jake, I’m out of here. Say hi to Bella from me.” with that I turned around, walking at a human pace to the river. I sensed Jacob still behind me, but when I heard his thoughts change to a higher universe, I knew he’d shifted back to his other form. 
I hid behind a tree until his thoughts were out of my hearing range, before I took three steps back and leapt over the river again. 
With my new boost of power, I ran back to the main road, following the trail back to Charlie’s house alongside the asphalt. 



I crossed the night lit street walked to the back of the house and gingerly and as soundlessly as possible climbed in through the open window. Once in my room, without any caused harm, I closed the window since Edward wouldn’t be there tonight anyway. Which meant a restless sleep for me. 
I turned on my bedside lamp and kicked of my dirty sneakers before stuffing them in the far back of my closet. I undressed further until I was only wearing my bra and panties and gathered a large towel along with freshly washed pajamas.

I rubbed the exhaustion from my sleepy eyes. It was an indication than I still was more mortal than we all expected. The recent ‘power-up’ I had in the woods was not yet enough to keep me awake for a whole lifetime. 
So the vampire-hybrid-human-mommy needed sleep. 

But first I needed a warm, hot shower to wash away the bitter rain and the left over dirt and bloodstains from my body. Washing away the smell of blood and that from the mountain lion was even more important. I was sure that if Edward found out about that part of my nature without freaking the fuck out, he’d cage me up and guard me all day. 

Stepping beneath the warm shower spray I sighed in content as I relished in the feeling of the warm water cascading down my body, soothing the muscles, like soft fingertips tracing swirling patters. It was soothing, reassuring and making me get back to normal again. to leave behind that aggressive, predatory side of me and focus on my sons instead. 
I smiled dreamily as I lathered shampoo in my wet hair. 

It felt like yesterday that I gave birth to the lovely twin. And yet it looked like it had been years ago. 

The last time I’d seen Raven, was last weekend when Edward and I paid my family in Seattle our weekly visit. I hated it that I had to keep my boys as a secret, but it was purely for their own safety and that of my siblings. 
But even though the little boy was only just over eleven months old, he was already running around and being taught to play baseball. Adam did new tests that weekend and noted Raven was equalizing a toddler of three years old. 
Blaze on the other hand, was a little slower, luckily walking by this time, but still wobbly. His vocabulary was quite good, but he just repeated everything his older brother said. From the tests it appeared Blaze was a little over two years old. Edward and I were surprised by that, the age difference in bodily developments. 
Adam called Carlisle to discuss it and concluded, that it must be the hour difference between their birth that made the age disparity. 
The audible, relieved sigh that left me then was followed by a light squeeze in my hand from Edward. 

I rinsed off my body from the soapy liquids, sniffling up the scents of bananas and coconut. That smell never bored me. 

I dried off, looking into the mirror by accident. My gaze quickly darted away when I saw the scars.
