I loved hanging out with Billy. In many ways he and Jacob were the same. They both thought taking their girlfriends to the फिल्में was a good taking-it-steady kind of date. Billy had the same eyes and laugh Jacob had.
But there was one thing different. Billy was going to let me have this child, the child Jacob wants to be rid of. I couldn't help but feel angry with him about this. Wasn't having the child a mother's choice? The father wasn't going to carry a boulder on their stomach. And they definately won't be giving birth to a screaming infant. The rest of the family shouldn't have the choice, either, unless the child was making the mother lose her health. I must admit, though, I'm glad Rosalie defended my mom, या I'd have never've been born.
Billy was दिखा रहा है me pictures taken during Jacob's childhood. The heavy चित्र album was on my lap right now, and I savored every picture before turning the page.
"That was Jacob at three months. He hasn't changed a bit," Billy told me, pointing to a toothless Jacob grinning as somebody took the picture facing a woman's back. Jacob was in the woman's arms. I could see a bit of drool come out of the side of his mouth.
"Ew! Billy!" I laughed. He laughed with me.
"Oh, here's when we entered Disneyland in California, and here's when we had to leave," Billy explained the अगला two photos.
The caption said, "Jacob, Five Yrs. Old"
The first picture was a wide eyed Jacob fresh into kindergarten. He was staring at Mickey माउस with adoring eyes.
I had to laugh at the अगला one. The woman was carrying Jacob football style, while the five साल old was screaming, throwing a fit. The woman had a tired grin on her face. I saw she had the same smile Jacob had.
Billy didn't need to explain the अगला three photos. It was in the middle of Disneyland. Jacob was laughing as he exited a ride. It looked like Billy and Jacob was on the Matterhorn together, while the woman took a picture. In the picture was a laughing Billy and a terrified Jacob. The last was Billy, Jacob, and the woman trying to get the sword out of the stone. All three were laughing.
I looked up to find Billy gone, and Jacob in his place. Jacob had a wide smile spread across his face.
"He showed आप the pictures, didn't he?" Jacob asked.
I leaned over to किस him apologetically. Jacob held me tight until the baby kicked at him.
"Help! I need to breathe!" Jacob joked.
"No, it's और along the lines of, 'I'm gonna throw up.'" I laughed.
Jacob placed his warm hand on my belly. I placed mine on his. We both felt a small kick. Jacob smiled.
"What're we gonna name it?" he asked.
"I was thinking something along the lines of Karrie if it's a girl," I thought aloud.
"Okay, and how about Mike if the little terror turns out to be a boy?" Jacob asked.
"Because a boy was being a terror when I met him. He had a crush on your mom."
"Okay, how about... Jeffery?"
"Hmm... That's a great name."
We both laughed. Then we heard footsteps. The pack entered the room. Seth was the first to talk.
"Jacob, man, congrats!" he crowed.
Leah came over to the other side of the बिस्तर and hugged me.
"Wow, Renesmee, a mother. आप better believe I'm happy for you."
"Without a doubt," I कहा in her ear.
Paul soon entered with a blonde girl, whom I recognized as Nala, a girl in my physical ed. class in school.
"Wow, Nessie, I guess आप can skip school for a while, huh?" Nala said.
I laughed. Then I tried to get up. Jacob held me down.
"You can't be moving around," he said. "That'll drain your energy. Remember yesterday?"
"Yeah," I कहा reluctantly.
"Okay, everybody out. The lady needs her rest," Quil said, pushing Embry out the door. The pack left the room. I soon fell asleep in Jacob's arms. Who can survive without a Jacob to cuddle with?
