It was twenty-four hours after little Anakin was born, but happiness still hadn’t filled the air. In their minds, the Cullens were convinced Summer was dying. They only had an saa left to see whether that was true au not. She slipped away to sleep in Carlisle’s arms, and hadn’t awaken since then. Chloe’s feelings, above all, were the most tormented. “Daddy!” She called to Jake, who was sitting alone in the kitchen. Rosalie and Esme were feeding and occupying Anakin, while Carlisle and Alice watched over Summer. Jake heard the pitter-patter of his toddler’s small feet. He raised his head to smile at her, “What is it, sweetie?” He noticed tears flowing down her plump cheeks. Chloe ran into Jake’s open arms. He snuggled her delicately, “Mommy will be fine, honey. Please don’t cry.” She clung to her daddy’s neck, “What if she isn’t fine?” Jake didn’t want to believe it, but perhaps Chloe was right. What if Summer didn’t make it? Would he have the will to live without her kwa his side? Of course not, but he would have a duty to raise their children nonetheless. Jake stroked Chloe’s dark, bouncy curls, “Don’t think that way, honey. She will be okay.” The room fell silent as Jake rocked his baby girl to sleep. He placed her on the guest kitanda and wrapped her in the blankets. He tiptoed out of the bedroom and hurried off anxiously to Carlisle’s office. He opened up the glass door, only to find Carlisle and Alice whispering silently, while Summer laid motionless on the padded steel table. Jake recalled that he hadn’t seen a smile kuvuka, msalaba Carlisle’s face since Summer slipped back into unconsciousness. “How is she?” Jake interrupted, walking over to hold Summer’s hand. Carlisle sighed, “Unchanged, I’m afraid. The venom will be attacking her moyo soon, Jacob.” Jake refused to look up at Carlisle.
Alice slipped out the room, hoping to give Jake some privacy. “What does that mean for her?” Jake inquired, his tone hushed. Carlisle patted Jake’s back reassuringly, “There’s hope, son. Alice and I were creating ideas on how to save her before the venom desecrates her heart.” There was a long pause. “Well,” Carlisle continued, “I was thinking I could drain some of the venom through the punctured holes on her neck. Obviously though, it is an extremely risky idea. If I drain too much of the venom, she could die.” A tear fell from Jake’s eye and onto Summer’s cold hand, “Is that your only option, Carlisle?” Carlisle’s forehead creased, “I’m afraid so.” Jake tightened his lips into a hard line, “Are wewe going to try it?” Carlisle sat down on a wooden chair inayofuata to the window, “In my opinion, it’s the only way we have a chance at saving her. But, if wewe object, I’ll agree, Jacob.” Jake knew he was risking everything in allowing Carlisle to drain Summer’s venom. It was strange to say, but he had a gut feeling that this was the right thing to do, no matter how high the stakes appeared. He prayed his gut wasn’t misled. “Ok,” Jake inhaled deeply, “it’s worth a shot.” Carlisle’s eyes narrowed, “Are wewe positive, Jacob?” Jake nodded solemnly. “Alright,” Carlisle agreed. He walked over to his medical appliances counter. He did his best to smile at Jake, “Do wewe think you’ll be able to stay?” Jake kissed Summer forehead, “I promised her I wouldn’t leave her side. If she dies, the least I can do is fulfill this promise I made to her.” Carlisle cleaned the IV bag and hooked up two narrow, clear tubes to the stand. He set the IV machine to drain instead of fill. Carlisle sterilized the ends of the tubes and maneuvered them deep into the punctures. He switched on the machine and watched it drain the silver venom from Summer’s veins slowly. Carlisle broke the heavy silence, “Hopefully it’s draining Aro’s venom instead of hers.” Jake alisema nothing in return. His mind was totally preoccupied kwa Summer’s health. Although he personally murdered Aro himself, he still felt like torturing the sly devil. Because of Aro, Jake’s life with Summer was now on the verge of impossible. This moment had to be the most pressurizing, tormenting time in Jake’s life. Jake ran his fingers through Summer’s hair. His beautiful fiancée looked as though she was lying on her death bed. This was all so wrong. She was an immortal; death should not have been an option for her.
Then, to Jake and Carlisle’s most genuine surprise, Summer progressively peeped through her closed eyelids. The two men couldn’t help but gasp in pure shock. Carlisle immediately turned off the IV and gently pulled the tubes out of Summer’s neck. Carlisle looked directly into her eyes, beaming slightly, “Is the pain gone, sweetheart?” Summer blinked, groggily emerging from her daze, “Yes, it is.” Summer’s words brought shock to her. She sat up quickly and threw her arms around both Jake and Carlisle. The trio laughed, relieved that Summer was well again. “Carlisle, you’re a miracle worker!” Summer exclaimed, practically overjoyed. Carlisle chuckled, “I thought it was a good idea to drain some of the venom out of your system. It was incredibly risky, but Jacob agreed to the plan, so we tried it. Apparently, he was correct.” Summer covered her mouth in shock. She turned and gazed at Jake lovingly. She embraced him as tightly as possible, “Jake…I owe wewe so much…everything.” Jake cuddled her in his arms, “Aw, babe. wewe owe me nothing, as long as wewe keep breathing.” Summer let out a light laugh. “I’ll let wewe two have a dakika alone,” Carlisle winked at the couple, “I’m sure everyone wants to hear the news.” Carlisle shut the door behind him. Summer was the first to speak, “So, this is all done now, right?” Jake threw his head back in laughter, “You bet. Now we can live happily ever after with Chloe and Anakin.” Summer giggled and interlocked her lips with Jake’s. Finally, cinderella and her prince could live peacefully. “I upendo to stay her alone with wewe sweetheart,” Jake whispered, “but I think everyone’s a bit too anxious for that right now.” Summer jokingly pouted, hopping off the meza, jedwali and dragging Jake along kwa the hand. The couple smiles couldn’t erase from their faces.
Alice jumped at Summer the moment Summer and Jake stepped into the family room, “SUMMER!!!” Summer spun her sister in circles, “ALICE! I missed your over-enthusiasticness, sis!” Alice giggled joyously. Esme, Bella, Emmett, Jasper, and Carlisle all group-hugged Summer, squishing her in the middle. “I thought for sure this wasn’t going to happen!” Summer mumbled, being crushed kwa her family’s hugs. “Mommy!” She heard Chloe’s voice sing out from the back of the room. Everyone made way for Chloe. Summer caught Chloe in her arms and cuddled her closely, “Princess! I missed wewe zaidi than wewe can EVER imagine.” Chloe took Summer’s face in her tiny hands and kissed her nose, “I’m glad you’re better now, mommy. I upendo you.” Summer kissed her daughter’s cheeks over and over again, “I upendo wewe too, baby girl, with all my heart.” Rosalie was holding Anakin in her arms. She walked up to Summer and gave her a peck on the cheek, “You’re back, hun, and I couldn’t be happier.” Summer beamed, “I missed wewe too, Rose, of course. Thank wewe for taking such good care of the kids.” Summer glanced down at smiling Chloe, “How do wewe like your new baby brother, sweets?” Chloe clapped her hands together, “I upendo Anakin! He’s the best little brother in the world!” Everyone laughed at Chloe’s cute comment. Summer was bewildered. She thought for sure that a baby sibling would make Chloe jealous. It was a relief to realize she was wrong. Jake took Chloe from Summer, “I think Anakin wants to spend some time with you, sweetheart.” Jake insisted, “After all, you’ve only held the little guy once.” Summer grinned, “True, honey. May I, Rose?” Rosalie gladly handed Anakin over to Summer. “He’s such a well-behaved baby, sweetie.” Esme added. Summer was happy to hear that. A toddler was already a handful, but a priceless handful nonetheless. Anakin took Summer’s breath away when she gazed at his perfect face. To say he was cute was an absolute understatement. He had gentle golden eyes, a pale skin tone with a touch of pink, and locks of curly, silky, light brown hair draping down his head. He was the perfect male baby every parent wished for. Anakin giggled and reached up his soft, tiny hand to his mother’s face. He touched her nose, and Summer kissed his plush palm. His smiling eyes never moved away from her. “We can tell he’s going to be a mommy’s boy,” Rosalie gushed, “He’s madly in upendo with you, Summer.” Summer covered her giggling baby boy in a million kisses, “I upendo you, Ani. Mommy will always upendo you, Chloe, and daddy…forever.” Jake wrapped his unoccupied arm around Summer’s waist, holding beautiful Chloe in the other. Summer’s gaze met his affectionate one, and he bent his head to kiss her sweetly. Alice grinned, “You know what I hear?” Summer leaned back onto Jake’s strong chest, “What is it, Alice?” Alice twirled, “Wedding bells!”
