We heard from carry that it was safe we go back home so we did. Me,Naomi, nick and Walter headed home. Walter was officially staying with us until he turned 18 . Just two years. When we got back home and got situated something was off. I didn't know what it was but I knew something was wrong. Walter went to the room downstairs and began unpacking, nick sat on the couch in the living room and Naomi was by me. " Naomi, do you feel that?" I asked her. " my son is broken " she mumbled . "What?"
The only son Naomi has is our son... last time I checked, he wasn't broken. " what are you talking about baby?" I asked
Naomi looked at me and came out of her trance and touched my face. " Nicolas is broken. " she repeated again and then I heard a thud coming from the living room. Naomi pulled me into the bedroom and Nicolas was on the floor breathing coarsely as if he was in pain. "Nick!" I yelled and ran to him. Naomi looked at him and stared. " nick, baby. " she said picking him up in her arms. I looked closely at him and scars and bruises came visable and disappeared within seconds. It kept doing that and it made me worry for him. Nick was out of it. He was awake but he was off guard. I guess his pain was that deep. The bruises that showed her crucial and brutal. " mommy" he said as he was trying to catch his breath. Naomi looked at him and hugged him tightly. As he hugged back and soon Walter came upstairs. "What's going on?" He asked. He walked closer and realized nick was fading in and out with bruises. " nick Is hurt." I told Walter. Walter looked at Nicolas and then me and Naomi. " Dawn and James took majority of his vampire powers.... he won't recover unless he has full use of them." Walter explained. Naomi held nick in her arms and craddled him as he went to sleep. Luckily nick didn't understand what he was yet. He'll find out later that he's a vampire with full blown powers that have now been taken from him. " yeah okay, so when can he get his powers back?" I asked. Walter shrugged and bit his lip. "He can only get them back from the very person that holds them in their hand." He explained. Naomi scoffed and carried nick upstairs to his bedroom. " hopeless ..." she mumbled as if she was mad. I took a deep breath and followed her up. I mean I didn't really understand her anger but it was my job as the man of the house to comfort her. We got upstairs and she laid nick into bed and quietly closed His door behind herself. I was right behind her and she turned around. " Ahh!" She gasped in shock and moved around me. " Naomi are you okay?" I asked and she scoffed. "Yes Jacob. I'm thrilled" she rolled her eyes in a sarcastic way. She walked into our bedroom and I followed closing the door behind me. "Naomi come here" I grabbed her arm and pulled her to face me. " what ?" She asked. " what's wrong? "
She pulled away from me and sat on the bed. "Naomi," I began. " not now... I just want to be alone. " Naomi slouched and got under the blankets just staring at the wall. I looked at her and sighed. "Naomi come on." I pleaded. " please just leave. " she sighed and put a pillow over her head. I shook my head and ignored her request. She's going to talk to me, one way or another. I got under the covers with her and cuddled her from behind. "Your going to tell me what's wrong. I'm not leaving until you do."
Naomi sighed and I removed the pillow from over her head. " My son didn't ask for any of this." She said. "No.... no he didn't." I looked at her and kissed her back. "I hate having to see those bruises on his face, knowing he doesn't have power to overcome them. "
I felt Naomi's pain. She went threw hell and back giving birth to my son and nearly died in the process And for what? Him to go walking around with cuts and bruises? To have his powers taken at age 6. He has so much life ahead of him and 2 idiots of greed took it from him. " its okay Naomi. " I told her. She shook her head. "Jacob do you always have to look at the brightside? " she scoffed and got up. I chuckled. "Yes, it can get better" Naomi rolled her eyes. "Wake up ... just wake up! " she raised her voice a little. " Dawn and James are walking around happier then ever while my son is suffering from the beatings they gave him, he doesn't have power to get rid of the pain, and I'm pretty damn sure their not going to hand them over out of the kindness of their heart. "
I slowly got up and looked at her. She was beyond hurt so I just wanted to comfort her. I tried holding her in my arms and she pushed me away and left the room.
I watched her as she left and scoffed. Then I went to check on nick.
