Hidng in the jungle.

I've had worse ideas, I guess.

Damp. Muddy. Gross.

"Jake, I'm cold." Nessie shivers.

"I'm cold too." I take off my jacket and wrap her inside. "We only have to stay here for a few more days. Then we'll go back to Forks."

"Forks?" Her face lights up. "You mean we're going home?"

I smile at her enthusiasm. "Yes. We're going home."

"Will Mum be there?"

"I don't know. But if she is. She's waiting for you."

"Thank you." She snuggles deeper into my thick jacket. "I can't wait to see them. I know they're there. They have to be."

"I hope so."

She falls asleep in the next ten minutes. It starts to get hotter, if that's possible, but I can feel it. How she can be cold I have no idea. It's way too hot. I begin to pant. Like I would if I was in wolf form. But I'm not. I don't think panting works in human form. Damn, but it was worth a try.

I look down at Nessie. She's so beautiful. And she's only a child. My angel child. My gift. She wasn't just an accident, she was my destiny. I thank Bella, and I thank Edward, for having such an amazingly brave, strong, gorgeous child, whom I love so much.

It's almost impossible to describe love. Don't you think. Don't you just think it fills you, and it's so strong it hurts. Doesn't your heart feels like it's about to explode from your chest. Please tell me you feel privalidged that they are breathing the same air as you, you feel as if you don't deserve them, you want to protect them when they're afraid and comfort them when they're sad. You must stay up all night worrying about them when they're sick or crying.

If not, then you don't love them.

But... I will give Nessie the world. My world. My life.

The End
