Three Sides; Renee/Charlie, Esme/Carlisle, Billy; G
Renee sat, Charlie on one side, Phil on the other. The bridal march had just ended and she had watched Charlie walking their daughter down the aisle, tears down his cheeks. She felt him clasp her hand and she squeezed gently, starting to cry herself. Weddings were always a goodbye, but standing with her hand in Charlie’s, she felt they had missed any hello with their daughter. And something told her it was too late. Charlie squeezed back and she wondered if he was feeling the same.

Esme and Carlisle’s smiles were genuine, but tense. They were thrilled to see Alice’s lovely planning coming to life and to see Bella walking down the aisle. They had never seen Edward so happy. But behind the pageantry was the threat of a Cullen losing control, the Volturi making a surprise visit, being exposed. But they held each other close and sent encouragement and love through their touch. They could only hope for the best. And keep smiling.

Billy sat, stone as the cold ones he glared at. He did not try to hide his disdain for this ceremony. Jake was foremost on his mind and Billy could almost feel the pang in his heart that had sent his son running. Billy mourned for that life unrealized. And he mourned for Charlie, losing his daughter most definitely. And he hated the cold ones for interrupting that life. His bones ached to protect those he loved. But he sat, stone in his wheelchair, the heat of hate flushing his cheeks.

I always wished we could see more of how Billy is taking all of this, being so close to Charlie and yet knowing everything he does. Thanks for this! I love hearing more about Billy.

awwwww all three parts are so good. I especially love the Billy section, but what's great about this is how balanced it is.
