End of Part 37
I turned and began looking for some of the clothes that Esme and Rose had bought for me. I found a pair of pants, shirt, jacket and under clothes set out on the dresser. I turned to smile at her as I pulled the clothes on.
She stood up, letting the sheet drop to the floor. She grinned, knowing that she was making this very difficult for me. I smiled at her as she walked into the closet and began pulling clothes on.
"Emmett love, will you hand me the steamer trunk?" She asked from the closet.
I walked over, grabbing one of the steamer trunks that were lined against the wall. I opened her closet to see her standing there in a very small nightgown, a twinkle in her eyes.
"This is unfair...you realize that right?" I said as I wrapped my arms around her.
"I know, but I was wondering...should I pack this?" She asked.
"Mean Rose...very mean.!" I said as I pulled back to look at her.
"Yes you should pack that and any others you were wondering about packing." I said as I turned to go pack my things.
I heard her sigh as she changed again, this time into a light green dress and heels. I was finished packing my one small bag of clothes when she came out of the closet, pulling a very full steamer trunk behind her.
"Ok every thing's packed...let's go." Rosalie said as she came over and grabbed my hand in hers.
As we walked out of the room, I turned back and laughed at the ruined bed. I wonder how many more we were going to break in our time together. She must have been thinking the same thing because she started laughing when I did.
It still amazes me that we do not need to sleep...ever. I've been a vampire for a few weeks now and it still amazes me, and today I found another plus to that.
We had been driving for 6 days straight, taking turns driving the cars. We all took turns riding with everyone, and in that time I had bonded with everyone on a new level.
I found that Esme was truly a mother figure, someone that cared for each member of the family. She was the sweetest person I had ever met, yet at the same time I knew that if anyone ever threatened a member of the family that she would be more protective then a mother bear.
Carlisle had a very rough beginning, being attacked by a rogue vampire in a time where people hunted down vampires and witches and killed them in public. He fought what he was for a long time before he realized that he could survive off of animals. He became a doctor later, and found that being a vampire helped him find things that were wrong with people. I respected him more then most people I have ever met.
Edward was dying when Carlisle found him, and saved him. Edward was a funny guy, he said that he tried to keep out of everyone thoughts..but couldn't block us completely no matter how hard he tried. I knew that we would be close, I could trust him with anything and we would have each others backs.
Finally there was Rosalie...Rose as she preferred. She had told me her story before, but chose to leave out how she was brought to the Cullens to be a match for Edward.
I laughed so hard at the idea of them together that Carlisle had to pull the car over because my laughter was making it hard to keep the car on the road...using the excuse of hunting when others asked why we stopped. I tried to pull myself together but every time I saw Edward I would start laughing...and he knew why. He occasionally threw things at me, trying to stop the laughter but that just made me laugh harder.
A few days later we crossed into Alaska, and I was surprised to see that everyone was right. Every inch was covered with snow, it was cold..well I didn't think it was cold but everyone made me wear a jacket using some excuse about 'having to blend in.'
I wore the stupid jacket, but found that the fur around the collar rubbed..so when no one was watching I pulled the fur off and buried it in a snowbank. The jacket looked much more manly without a furry collar framing my face.
Later that afternoon...well evening we turned off the main road onto a driveway. It was surrounded on each side by towering pine trees that looked like they had been here since the beginning of time. Edward nodded as he drove behind the other car. "They most likely have been, Tanya doesn't like to ruin nature just so they can be comfortable." He said as he explained.
I suddenly got very nervous. I had become a member of this 'family,' and honestly thought of everyone as my family. Would these people be considered cousins, aunts and uncles? I wondered if I should call Tanya Auntie Tanya the first time I met her or if that would offend her?
Edward pulled to the side of the road, laughs moving his entire body so that the seat was bouncing. I knew that he was listening again..not that I cared.
"Oh do it please Emmett!! I will pay you to do it!!" He said as he turned and smiled at me.
"Will she be mad? I mean she doesn't know I know..let alone that you added to the group." I said, as my nerves began to bother me again.
"I'm sure Carlisle, Rosalie and Esme have arrived by now..and knowing Carlisle he had told them everything. Tanya won't mind, she might even be interested in you so you might want to watch out for her....OR you could let her flirt and watch how Rose reacts." He said as he started laughing again.
I started laughing, the idea of Rosalie having anything to be jealous of didn't make sense to me. I mean she is...I couldn't find a word to describe how gorgeous and breath taking she was. I smiled thinking again about breaking a bed back at the old house.
Edward started the car again, a shiver rippling through his entire body. "Oh God...Please never think about that again." He begged.
I started laughing so hard that he was bouncing on the seat, I now knew what his weakness truly was..my impure thoughts about his 'sister.' I would have to remember that for future use.
