EW have just released a new still of Bella and Renesmee! :D
And hmm... it looks like Bella is giving her daughter the locket she bought to mark Christmas!
Need a reminder of what I'm talking about?
Check out the quote from the book below the picture!
~*~Just before Christmas~*~
“Welcome home,” he said, as if this was just any normal day. As if there weren’t twelve other vampires in the room involved in various pursuits, and a dozen more scattered around somewhere. “Did you have a good time with Charlie today?”
“Yes. Sorry I was gone so long. I stepped out to do a little Christmas shopping for Renesmee. I know it won’t be much of an event, but . . .” I shrugged.
Edward’s lips turned down. He quit playing and spun around on the bench so that his whole body was facing me. He put one hand on my waist and pulled me closer.
“I hadn’t thought much about it. If you want to make an event of it—”
“No,” I interrupted him. I flinched internally at the idea of trying to fake more enthusiasm than the bare minimum. “I just didn’t want to let it pass without giving her something.”
“Do I get to see?”
“If you want. It’s only a little thing.”
Renesmee was completely unconscious, snoring delicately against my neck. I envied her. It would have been nice to escape reality, even for just a few hours.
Carefully, I fished the little velvet jewelry bag from my clutch without opening the purse enough for Edward to see the cash I was still carrying.
“It caught my eye from the window of an antique store while I was driving by.”
I shook the little golden locket into his palm. It was round with a slender vine border carved around the outside edge of the circle.
Edward popped the tiny catch and looked inside. There was space for a small picture and, on the opposite side, an inscription in French.“Do you know what this says?” he asked in a different tone, more subdued than before.“The shopkeeper told me it said something along the lines of ‘more than my own life.’ Is that right?”“Yes, he had it right.”~*~Just before the confrontation with the Volturi ~*~I watched from a distance, waiting by the tent for Renesmee to wake.When she did, I helped her dress in the clothes I’d carefully picked out two days before. Clothes that looked frilly and feminine but that were actually sturdy enough to not show any wear—even if a person wore them while riding a giant werewolf through a couple of states.Over her jacket I put on the black leather backpack with the documents, the money, the clue, and my love notes for her and Jacob, Charlie and Renée.She was strong enough that it was no burden to her. Her eyes were huge as she read the agony on my face. But she had guessed enough not to ask me what I was doing.“I love you,” I told her. “More than anything.”“I love you, too, Momma,” she answered. She touched the locket at her neck, which now held a tiny photo of her, Edward, and me. “We’ll always be together.”“In our hearts we’ll always be together,” I corrected in a whisper as quiet as a breath. “But when the time comes today, you have to leave me.”Her eyes widened, and she touched her hand to my cheek. The silent no was louder than if she’d shouted it.I fought to swallow; my throat felt swollen. “Will you do it for me? Please?”She pressed her fingers harder to my face. Why?“I can’t tell you,” I whispered. “But you’ll understand soon. I promise.”
