The Cullen wedding is my own private hell.  Seth begged and nagged until I gave in -- anything for my baby boy.  He seems to be comfortable with the undead guests, but they give me the serious creeps.  I had nightmares as a child after hearing the legends and walking home from a tribal bonfire, and here we are -- hobnobbing with them.  Even Esme, who’s never been anything but nice to me -- she brushed against my arm and I almost jumped out of my skin.  You’d have thought her touch was hot -- or electric -- rather than stony cold and dead.

I’m here for Charlie too.  He wanted Harry and me to share this special day, but the Great Spirit had other ideas for my Harry.  I look around at the glamorous monsters, and I feel both underdressed and overweight.

There must be a few other humans around here.  When Seth and I find our table...ahh, yes.  There’s Billy, Charlie, and a couple of Bella’s school friends.  I wonder why Charlie’s not seated with the bride’s family.  Renee and her new husband are there.  If I know Charlie, he’d probably prefer to take a back seat.  Sit with the riffraff.  Fine with me.  We can talk fishing.

“Hey, Sue.”  He has a nice smile.  “You feeling like the redheaded stepchild?”  How does he know that?

“Yes.  Is it that obvious?”  He takes the seat next to me.  

“Takes one to know one,” he grins.  “Would you like to dance?”

“With you?” I ask stupidly.

He laughs easily.  “Yes.  With me.  I’ll try not to stomp on your feet.”

I smile, relieved.  Maybe the day won’t be a colossal mistake after all.  Seth grins happily as I get up and give Charlie my hand.  That kid doesn’t miss a trick.  

“Catch any big Pacific halibut lately?” Charlie asks as he holds me loosely in his arms.  Turns out he’s an excellent dancer.  I am not, but you can’t tell because he’s a strong leader.    

I laugh and nod.  “Not as big as that one last year, but my freezer’s ready for winter.”  We have a friendly rivalry, and his halibut is in the lead by a few ounces.  “Seth shot a big buck last week, so between that and the fish we’re set.  I was thinking of taking a ride up to Mt. Washington to fish for cutthroat salmon.”

“No way!  I’ve always wanted to do that!  Do you take a charter?”

I smile up at him.  “Harry and I used to go and rent a boat.  I was thinking next weekend…”  I trail off, just short of inviting him to come along.  Would it be presumptuous?

Charlie shakes his head, his hold on me tightening just a notch.  “Do you think I could go with you?  I mean…”  He turns an adorable shade of rose.  

I smile, squeezing his hand lightly.  “Of course.  It won’t be much fun alone.”

He grins and echoes my invitation.  “Of course.”

Got forced to read the books, never saw the movie. But I like that you brought up a story about two side characters so to speak. And that it wasn't romance heavy. Awesome job!
