Esme's smile grew and she chuckled slightly with Jayden's question. Though most of the houses they had lived in had already been constructed they always had some modifications to make to suit their lifestyle and the size of their family.
"We all have many titles under our belts," Esme answered with a kind smile. The many years they had all been alive they had each picked up some different qualities and job titles, exploring different careers. "If you want anything fixed up or changed, don't be afraid to ask. We'd be willing to help with anything."
Following closely behind Jayden Esme admired the next room. The large windows let in a lot of the warm sun, making the room feel bright and open. Esme personally liked this aspect. In her own home there were plenty of large, open windows along the back wall of her home. But she knew her likes were not the same likes of Jayden.
"Whatever you prefer," she replied, "I'm sure we could fine a more covered area with lots of trees around here. Or we could even have some landscaping done."

Though Jayden had never known her own mother, her very birth having killed the woman, she knew Esme was an amazingly loving maternal spirit and the Cullens were very lucky ‘children’. Searching for a house with the woman was a comfortable and comforting experience one she was glad she had Esme to share and explore it with.
The help the whole family offered made Jayden feel extremely lucky, her father truly had made friends with an amazing family. “Thank you Esme, you and your family have done so much already. I couldn’t ask for more.” she said smiling and feeling truly blessed no matter how much she often felt cursed.
As they moved from room to room the house seem to check some boxes in what she wanted, but not all. Although it would be her first home Jayden wanted something that felt like home for then just a house. The large windows made it bright and welcoming, but Jayden worried what privacy it offered at the same time.
“I would like something more private for time when I’m not feeling my most human.” She smiled at the joke she made knowing that some days she truly felt the half and half of her physical and DNA make up. “Perhaps before I choose I should see them all, you went to so much work to find them it’d be a shame not to see them. And it is actually fun.” She smiled hoping that Esme thought so too.
"Anytime hun," Esme replied softly, "It's our pleasure." Everything she was doing for Jayden was natural for Esme's kind and gentle heart. It didn't take any effort on her part, she loved caring and be maternal to everyone.
Esme let Jayden lead them through each room. Listening to anything Jayden had to say about the house; her likes and dislikes. She knew choosing a house to turn into a home was no easy feat and may take longer than just one day, but she was willing to do whatever it took. She wanted Jayden to feel comfortable and loving of the place she lived in.
Smiling warmly Esme nodded at the girl. "Alright, I'm sure we can find you a home with more privacy," she answered. With a slight chuckle she continued, "You act like you've put me out a great deal, but you haven't. Going through the area's available homes was really nothing. And yes, it is fun, isn't it?"
Walking toward the front door she gestured for her to follow. "We can go through the flyers in the car, figure out where you'd like to go next."

Her voice was so soft and her manner so motherly that it made Jayden yearn for something she had never had, she found herself missing someone she’d never met. As Esme again reiterated the ease of what she and her family were doing and the help they were offering Jayden again felt a surge of humility and gracious thanks that she knew could never be voiced or repaid.
Moving through the rooms silently Jayden tried to take it all in for comparison later to the other places they were bound to see, though she was sure see wanted somewhere more private. The house was impressive and homely, but it didn’t call to her or wrap her in the comfort she was sure a home was supposed too. The Cullen’s home was amazingly welcoming, but Jayden knew she could never call that large place home while she was still alone.
Her laugh was so light and musical, a trait common to their kind, but Esme made it sound even more magical. Joining with her laugh Jayden nodded, “I’m still not too used to been open or the surroundings been open. I’m sure its something that will grow easier over time.” She smiled. “As for the house hunting, yes I think this will be enjoyable.”
Following Esme out of the door Jayden nodded to her idea. “I’m sure in the varied area of Forks we can find something.” Moving back to the car she slipped back into her seat and reach for the flyers each one showing a grand house already appearing like the ideal home. One caught her eye, a small double fronted house surrounded by trees and perfectly shaded. “I think this one could be a high possibility.” She said turning the page to Esme with a smile.
