A/N: Happy Birthday, Venti_Turtl! Hope you’re having a kick-ass day.

Thanks to SorceressCirce for beta’ing.

As ever, I do not own Twilight – it owns me.


“Relax, babe.” I squeeze his thigh, hoping he’ll calm down. He’s nervous about tonight, about meeting my parents.

Edward scowls briefly at me before resuming his fidgeting.

Scooting closer, I put my hand on his jaw, pulling him so I can kiss his cheek and whisper, “Sweetheart, you have nothing to worry about. They’re going to love you. Promise.”

A quiet snort.

A roll of his eyes and a silent: Easy for you to say.

Resting my forehead against his cheek, I sigh.

“Jazz, please… just don’t leave me alone with them, okay?”

I grin. “Not for a second, darlin’.”
