The Ring Chapter 5
I am completely lost in Emmett as he kisses me. I lay there in his arms, absolutely lost in his beautiful golden eyes. We lay like that for who knows how long before, way too soon, Emmett attempts to untangle me from him. I pout and stick out my bottom lip, not letting up on my grip. He bellows his deep laugh and eventually just picks me up with him. “They are going to be wondering where we went babe,” he says as he starts walking. I huff in reply but smile as he starts absentmindedly playing with my ring. Then he starts running vampire speed back to the house with me in is arms. I giggle as a rest my head on his shoulder, protecting my face from stray branches. In a matter of minutes we are back at the house. He opens the door and I look around and the entire family is there. And they are all wearing matching expressions, expressions of fear, and then relief. Emmett sets me down and soon everyone is standing around us. “Oh thank God!” Esme says in relief as she wraps Emmett and I in a hug. Jasper looks at me with a smile, “Everyone was wondering where you guys went! I wasn’t sure if my sister or my brother would both make it back,” he says with a wink. “Not true Jasper, they would never hurt each other. Physically I mean,” Carlisle said. I looked at Edward he smiled and said, “I really was worried Rose.” I smile back. “Well now that we’re back and you guys all know we’re safe, I’m going to whisk away my girl and take her up to my room,” Emmett says scooping me into his arms. I giggle as we go up the stairs. I hear Esme say to Carlisle, “Well they seemed to work things out,” And then Emmett gently shut the door. I take a seat in the middle of our bed and just stare at the ring. It’s not very big… or flashy… or like anything I’d usually like. Well he was upset when he got this probably so I can see why he wouldn’t really give it much thought… oh well. I felt two familiar arms wrap around me and I leaned back into Emmett with a content sigh. It felt so nice to have everything back to the way it was… except for the ring. But hopefully he’ll get me a new one soon. Maybe he just had this one lying around as a spare temporary one. I shrugged my shoulders. I spent the rest of the night in Emmett’s arms as he whispered sweet nothings into me ear.
(Authors Note: By the way Emmett did NOT tell Rose it was his mother’s ring… yet. So don’t think she’s a cold hearted ungrateful b!tch, she just doesn’t know!)
Emmett and I walk downstairs hand in hand. Everyone else is already downstairs. “Good morning,” Esme says brightly. “Good morning mom,” I reply. Alice appears before me, “hey let’s hang out today Rosalie!” she says exuberantly. I laugh at how excited she gets over the little things. “Okay, is it even worth debating?” I jokingly tell her. “Nope,” she says putting emphasis on the “p”, “We need some sister bonding time, and there’s no denying it Rose!” She says. “Alright, alright. Where to?” I say in mock defeat. “How about the beach? I mean it’s cloudy but kind of warm. Which is a rarity in Forks! Plus I already got us new swimsuits!” She said jumping up and down. “Okay okay okay Alice! Calm down,” I say, laughing. Emmett pulls me closer to him and kisses my temple. “Have fun babe,” he says as Alice pulls me upstairs and hands me the swim suit. I put it on and put on a cover up. “Let’s go Rose,” Alice says impatiently as I put my hair up, letting a few curls cascade around my face. “Okay I’m ready now!” I say as we walk out into the garage. We get in my M3 and put the top down. We make our way to the beach (obviously not the Quileutte one) and lay out towels and things. We lay for a while and then go take a dip in the water. While she’s not looking I splash her and she lets out a high pitched shriek. I throw my head back and laugh and she takes that time to get her revenge on me and splashes me back. We continue our game for a little while longer. Eventually we decide it’s time to head back, I was starting to miss Emmett and she Jasper. We loaded up the car and made our way back home. We pulled into the garage and Emmett and Jasper were there waiting for us. We jumped out of the car and ran to our boys. I jumped up on Emmett and wrapped my legs around his waist and threw my hands around his neck. He laughed and twirled me around before setting me back on my feet. He then grabbed my small, delicate hands in his strong hands and went to place a kiss on my hand when he stopped suddenly. He looks up at me and say, “Rosalie! Where’s your ring?” I look down and gasp. It’s not there!
