Even In Death Chapter 21

Chapter 21 – We Can Live Forever
When doubt returns
May it be
That faith shall permeate our scars

When we're seduced
Then may it be
That we not deviate our cause

All sinners, a future
All saints, a past
Beginning, the ending
Return to ash

Now that we're dead, my dear
We can be together
Now that we're dead, my dear
We can live forever
“Now That We’re Dead” by Metallica

Carlisle and I got out of the car just as Charlie’s patience ran out, and he met us at the door. This was the first time I’d get to hear his thoughts, and I found that his mind was not exactly muddled but not truly clear either. He eyed me from head to toe. He noted some changes, but he rationalized some of them with the knowledge that it had been several months since he’d last set eyes on me. As Carlisle and I stepped closer, the one thing that stood out was my eyes, but he pushed it away as being an “unobservant old man.”
“Hey, Charlie,” I said with a smile.
“It’s so good to see you, kiddo,” he greeted, his mustache twitching into a smile. “Dr. Cullen, always a pleasure.”
“Call me Carlisle, please.”
“C’mon in,” Charlie said, standing aside to let us walk through the door. “Edward, son… You know where to go with that beer. Jake’s already stashed his in there.”

Even In Death Chapter 20 & Pics

Chapter 20 – We’ll Carry On
Though the sea will be strong
I know we'll carry on
Cos if there's somebody calling me on
She's the one
If there's somebody calling me on
She's the one

When you get to where you wanna go
And you know the things you wanna know
You're smiling
“She’s the One” by Robbie Williams

I sat down on some rocks by the small lake, waiting for the others to finish their hunt. The water was still, the mountain in the distance loomed over its surroundings, and there wasn’t a sound of civilization to be heard. No planes, no cars, no noise. Nothing. Just a slight breeze that stirred the tall grasses around me and a few small creatures off in the distance.
However, it was the sight above that was breathtaking. Without street lights and car headlights and buildings to get in the way, to dull it all, every star in the sky glowed brightly overhead. It was truly magnificent. I wasn’t sure if it was my enhanced sight or if the stars just were better over Alaska, but I took them all in.
He picked a nice spot.
I smiled over my shoulder at Esme, who was taking in the view like I had. “I thought you’d be used to it,” I said softly.
Her smile was warm and sweet as she shook her head slowly. “No. No, that’s something I never want to get used to,” she stated, sitting down next to me and gesturing to the sky. “Once that no longer holds an awe-inspiring beauty, then I’m way too distracted. It’s time to reassess myself, reorganize my priorities.”
Smiling, I nodded.
“This is stunning every time I see it. It makes me see just how small I am in the great big picture.”
