Here is chapter two! I really hope you guys enjoy it! :)
Disclaimer: I only own the girl, Holly, and the story line. :)
Rosalie watched as her daughter walked around her new room, her toddler legs carrying her everywhere they could, letting her touch all the new things and Rosalie knew her daughter would love her room. Her face filled with excitement at all the things she'd never encountered before, a smile permanent on her little face and a giggle every now and then filled Rosalie's heart with delight.
Rosalie didn't notice Emmett standing in the doorway at first, he'd been there for a while, watching the small girl run around looking and laughing and Emmett couldn't help but smile. This little girl was quite a child, so bright and positive in a world filled with disappointments.
She'd learn as she got older though, Emmett thought, one way or another, she'd learn. We all do in the end.
"Isn't she beautiful?" Rosalie's voice brought Emmett back to reality.
Emmett shrugged and walked away, leaving Rosalie with the girl alone once again. Rosalie just didn't understand, how could he ever simply not care about that girl? Rosalie followed him into their room and sat beside him on their bed.
"Em, what's wrong?" Rosalie asked him, her voice wavering ever so slightly.
"It's nothing." Was his reply, short and bittersweet.
"Then why can't you just be happy for us? You wanted a daughter just as much as I did and now we have one and you do this?" Rosalie's voice was rising quickly and Emmett knew he'd have to explain himself.
"It isn't that I'm not happy we have a daughter, I am but – " He stopped.
"But what, Emmett?" Rose prompted him.
"You know what's going to happen. She's human Rose; don't you know how dangerous this is going to be for her?"
"Of course I do, but I know that we're both strong enough to keep from hurting her."
"Maybe we are but what about Jasper or Bella or even Renesmee?"
"No one is going to hurt her Emmett. We'll figure it out, it may not be easy but it will be okay, we can do this."
"Rose, I don't want you to get attached. She's going to get older and she's going to leave, and one day she's going to die and it's going to hurt you. I know it is. I cannot let that happen to you."
Rosalie stared at him for a moment before she finally shook her head.
"Em, I know you don't want me to get hurt but I want a daughter. Yes, some day she's going to keave and she's going to have her own family and someday, she'll die. I know, it's happened before and yes, it'll hurt but I need her Emmett. I can't just keep going on. I want a daughter, I want a family, and she's a part of my family and yours too."
Emmett looked at her and then away towards the hall, he stared for a few minutes and Rosalie waited and finally, Emmett turned back around to face Rosalie.
"What's her name?" He asked quietly.
"Holly, short for Holland, Elaine."
And that's it! :) I really hope you enjoyed this chapter! Three will be up tomorrow, I'm trying to put a chapter up every day until it's finished. :) Anyway, review! :D
