Chapter 8:1

Carlisle's POV

Today is the day of the funeral. Jake is in pieces, Nessie is right by her side and Bella and Edward are by Nessie. They don't really want her to be near him at the moment because he managed to kill his dad. And they are scared of her getting killed by him as well. They really have trusted him in the past but now they have less and less trust in him since his dad's death. They think that it was all his fault and Nessie had nothing to do with it. Even though she has told them time and time again that it was her fault not his.

The time has been set; the funeral will take at 9:00 am so around about now. I looked up to see everyone coming in to the church. Billy is being cremated; we have brought a single white rose for everyone so they can put it on the coffin. Jake liked this idea and he Okayed it.

Jake didn't really have much to do with the funeral. He likes to keep back and just do things that everyone else does. I have been trying to think of a world without my Esme, I can never do it because every time I do it just disappears; like there will never be a world without her. Maybe the reason it goes is because there will never be a world without her. The funeral is about to start. Everything went quiet and I looked around to see who had come.

There was Sam, Quil, Jacob-of cause-, Embry, all the rest of the pack; of cause there was myself, Esme, Emmett, Rosalie, Jasper, Alice ,Bella ,Edward and Nessie sitting right next to her Jacob. Nearly everyone had turned up old friends of Billy's, old relatives and a lot of others. It was impossible to think of all the names of his family and friends. The vicar just asked if anyone would like to say any words. I stood up first and went to the front of all the people and gave my speech.

"Billy was and still is a good friend of mine; we never used to get along but for a few years now we have managed to live in peace." I took an unneeded breath and looked at Jacob. "He was a brilliant dad, a good brother and most of all a good friend; he loved everyone like they were his son." Another unneeded breath. "He was an amazing person and could work wonders, thank you for coming to Billy Black's funeral." I nodded once and sat back in my seat.

Jacob was the next to stand up and walk to the front with Nessie at his side.

"Thank you Carlisle for those kind words. I don't think I ever really deserved a dad like Billy; he always put others before himself. No one could convince him otherwise, for the past few years he has treated the Cullen family with the most respect I have ever seen." He took a slow and steady breath. "He would love to be here right now and see how many friends and family he had; he always felt like he never had anyone there since my mom died." He started to cry so Nessie stepped up and finished it off. "Jacob always loved his dad but didn't show it he wishes now that he could have had the chance to show Billy just how much he did love him. Thank you all, as Carlisle said for coming today and proving just how many people loved and adored him." He nodded and smiled at us all. I noticed as soon as she took her seat that her little boy was there as well.

As soon as every one else had left I went to talk to Jacob. He looked so upset I think he needs to know if he ever needs to talk to just come to me.

"Jacob, you know you're like a son to me and if you ever need to talk just come to the house okay?" Jacob nodded.

", oh sorry I mean Carlisle; thank you for the kind words in the church and thank you for the offer." He nodded and we hugged. I went back to my Esme and wouldn't let go even if I couldn't hug her I held her hand never letting her out of my sight.

Chapter 8:2

Nessie's POV

Its 16 years later now and we are all happy. Jake and I had 2 more babies a girl called Ebony, she is about 14 and our other baby boy James and he is only 2 years old. Jake is okay now, about his dad-Billy-and our little boy Tony has grown up and Angel and him have gotten married and had a baby girl called Jessica. She is cute but not cuter then Tony was when he was a baby.

Tony and Angel have moved into a house of their own and are happy with their baby girl Jessica. Since the baby is more Werewolf than Vampire she started turning into a wolf at the age of only 4. She is one of the best werewolves I have ever seen, she is even better than Jake.

Ebony is at school and gets on well with everyone, her vampire power is being able to make people talk to her and not be afraid to. James's power is to make people see what he is thinking like me, but he can also block it and I can't. I find it strange not being able to see what it is he is thinking. Hmmmm, now I know what it was like being my dad I guess.

We are happy and living without anything going wrong. We all love someone-apart from all the kids-and no one will take that away from us.

Or am I wrong?...

When you walk away
You don't hear me say please
Oh baby, don't go
Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
It's hard to let it go

You're giving me too many things
Lately you're all I need
You smiled at me and said,

Don't get me wrong I love you
But does that mean I have to meet your father?
When we are older you'll understand
What I meant when I said "No,
I don't think life is quite that simple"

When you walk away
You don't hear me say please
Oh baby, don't go
Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
It's hard to let it go

The daily things
that keep us all busy
all confusing me that's when u came to me and said,

Wish i could prove I love you
but does that mean I have to walk on water?
When we are older you'll understand
It's enough when I say so,
And maybe something's are that simple

When you walk away
You don't hear me say please
Oh baby, don't go
Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
It's hard to let it go

Hold me
Whatever lies beyond this morning
Is a little later on
Regardless of warnings the future doesn't scare me at all
Nothing's like before
