The next morning I woke up late, and when I skipped down the steps Charlie told me that Jacob had called a few times and that Sam had called, too. I nodded and guaranteed Charlie that I would indeed call both of them after I had eaten breakfast.

Once I had finished my oatmeal, I picked up the phone and decided on calling Sam first. I would at least have an excuse if Jacob wanted to do anything today.

Sam picked up on the first ring. "Hello?" he said anxiously into the phone.

"Hey, Sam," I said. "Charlie told me that you called. So, what's up?"

"How late do you sleep in? It's almost eleven. You need to get up earlier," he scolded playfully.

"I could not sleep last night. It's not my fault; Charlie had too many people coming over and calling to make sure I was okay. Maybe, I should tell people where I am going next time," I added thoughtfully.

"Uh, yeah!" he said. "So, I thought today we could hang out."

"Sure, what do you want to do? I'm free all day, so I'm up for whatever."

"Want to go see a movie?" he asked after a moments thought.

"Yeah, let's do that. Do you know what's out?"

"They have that knew chick flick out, if you want to go see that."

"Eww, no way! That movie sounds so stupid! There is that one new horror movie out. Want to see that?"

"Well, yes I would, but do you?"

"Of course, why wouldn't I?"

"I don't know, it just doesn't seem like the type of movie that you would want to see. I'm not saying that I don't want to go, because I really do. Forget it, let's go!"

"All right, I think I heard that they had a showing at two. If that works for you, of course."

"Yep, I'll pick you up at 1:30, okay?"

"All right, see you then!" I squealed when I hung up the phone, and then remembered to call Jacob. I eventually dialed his number what with all my shaking from excitement.

"Hello?" a tired voice said from the other end.

"Hey sleepy head, wake up. You call and then you go back to sleep. What a disappointment." I said sarcastically.

"Bella?" he asked, sounding slightly angry.

"Who else, Jake?" I said, trying to match his tone, but failing horribly. There was a long awkward silence, in which I thought I had said something wrong. Then Jacob spoke.

"When were you going to tell me anything?" he growled.

"Like what, Jake? I tell you everything," I said feeling slightly hurt.

"Not what happened last night!" he accused.

"When would I have gotten around to telling you?" He grumbled an agreement. "I just got lost, so I don't know what the big deal would be."

"Isabella Swan, you did not just get lost! Do you not remember what I told you about werewolves?"

"I remember everything that you told me about you guys."

"Tell me."

"Okay," I said trying to recall everything that he had told me. "Well, when you get angry or upset you start shaking. That can lead to turning into the werewolf form. Uh, when you change into a werewolf you can hear the thoughts of the others. What am I supposed to be looking for, Jacob?"

"You all ready found it. We can hear the thoughts of the others," he repeated. "Can you think of anything that you wouldn't want to hearing from the other werewolves?"

I thought for a few moments, and then said, "Not that I can think of. Why? What did you hear?"

"I heard about you and Sam, last night." I could hear his body shaking through the telephone.

"Jake, calm down. Don't work yourself up, just take a deep breath." I waited until I heard him take a slow shaky breath in till I continued. "What happened between Sam and me is none of your business, Jacob Black. I don't remember when you became my parent."

"Bella," he howled, and I could still hear him shaking. "He imprinted on you!" I felt my jaw drop slightly as he said those words.

"What do you mean? Are you serious?" There was no answer to my questions, and I could not hear Jacob any longer on the other end. I gasped when I realized that he must've turned into a wolf while we were talking! My breathing started thinning out, and I could feel all the blood draining from my face.

I walked into the living room to tell Charlie. "I'm going over to Jake's, Dad. He sounded upset. I'll be back before 1:30 because I'm going to see a movie with Sam."

Charlie did not seem surprised about going to Jacob's house, but he did seem shocked about me going to the movies with Sam. "You're going to the movies with Sam Uley?" he asked cautiously.

"Dad, I just said that," I replied irritated.

"Why don't you ask Jake to go, too?"

"Dad," I moaned not wanting to explain to him. "I'm going on a date with Sam. It would be too awkward if Jacob was there. He'd be, like, the third wheel or something."

"Oh," Charlie said in awe. "I guess you're right. Well, you can go head up to Jake's. See you when you get back. Goodbye, Bella."

"'Bye," I said, slightly annoyed.

When I saw Jacob's house, I had sudden feelings of regret. I felt like I should just go back home and wait for 1:30. But, I saw Jacob in the front yard and knew that he had seen me. There was no turning back now.

"Hey, Jake," I said awkwardly as I got out of my Truck. Jacob grumbled a hello. I cleared my throat. "I came by to se how you were doing. How're you, Jake?" He looked up at me and gave me a glare that was so burning I had to run my face away.

"How do you think I feel?" he asked, sounding completely angry. "I've been trying forever to imprint on you, and now you get imprinted on by one of my best friends."

I could see where his anger was coming from. I mean, I knew he liked me, but I had no idea that he liked me so much that he had been trying to imprint on me. "Can I ask you something?"

"As long as it will not make me angrier."

"Never mind," I said.

"Bella, just ask it, please," he moaned impatiently.

"I was just wondering," I began. "When exactly did Sam imprint on me?"

He took a deep, shaky breath and spoke very carefully. "The first time he saw you when he was a werewolf, but you were with that bloodsucker at that time, so he didn't want to say anything. He's too nice in my opinion. You know that if I had imprinted on you I would have fought for you."

"You do that anyways, Jake," I pointed out with a smile.

"I know, but it would be so much worse if I had in fact imprinted on you." He smiled, but I frowned. "What Bella? That's only the truth!" he added defensively. I raised an eyebrow wondering how he can go from being extremely mad to being in a fine mood.

"Are you all right?" I asked, with real concern. "You seem a bit off. I mean, you were severely mad when I got here, and now you seem fine. Something is totally up. I mean, man are you weird!"

"Bella, Bella, Bella," he said.

"What?" I asked a little annoyed.

"I'm just glad that you're not hurt. You know, most people would be freaked out about being imprinted on by Sam. You're not." Jacob smile slightly.

"Well, I'm not most girls, am I?" He shook his head, shaking with laughter. "Anyway, I should probably get back home," I said after reaching over to look at Jacob's watch.

"Oh, why?"

"Well, y'know. I sort of have a date today with Sam today," I said, suddenly feeling shy.

"Oh really? May I ask what you guys were going to do?"

"Is there any reason that you would like to know?" I asked, giving him a knowing look. "And you said were, we are in fact going somewhere today."

"Bella," he started, obviously knowing what the look meant. "I'm not going to go stalk you two while you are on a date. I was just trying to be friendly."

"Sorry, but I never know with you." I took hold of his wrist once again and glanced at the watch again. "Look Jacob, I really have to go, he's picking me up."

"Why don't you give him a call and tell him to pick you up here?"

"Sorry, but I told Charlie that I would be home before the date," I said as I climbed into my truck. I turned on the car and starting to press down the peddle.

"Wait!" I heard Jacob yell. I stopped and waited till he was at my window. "You never told me what you and Sam were going to do today."

"We're just going to see a movie," I sighed.

"Is it that knew chick flick?" Jacob said distastefully.

I thought for a second before replying. "Yes," I said curtly, and then pressed down on the peddle and drove away.

I got home in record time, and I ran in the house and up to my room to change. I had to idea what to where. I never officially had a first date with Edward, and it did not really matter what I wore with him.

I decided on a medium length denim skirt and the blue blouse that Edward had so many times complimented. I do not really know why I choose the blouse; I just hoped that it would make me feel more comfortable in a sense.

When I got down the stairs Sam was there and talking to Charlie. It brought me back to the night Edward had come to talk to Charlie about taking me on a first date.

I cleared my throat as I stepped around the corner into the living room.

"Bells!" Charlie burst out when he saw me. "Don't worry," he said when he saw my guarded expression. "I got all the Dad/Boyfriend talk out of the way before you came down." I nodded slowly, but my expression stayed the same. I walked up to Charlie and threw my arms around him, giving him a small kiss on his cheek.

"See you later, Dad," I said, breaking into a smile.

"Talk to you later, Charlie," Sam said as he guided me out the front door.

"'Bye kids," Charlie said from right behind us. I saw that Sam had brought his red 2007 Honda Ridgeline.

"Nice car you got there, Sam. Don't go too fast," Charlie said like the normal father he was. "Don't stay out too late. Remember, you both have school tomorrow. Have fun!"

"We will," Sam said as he opened the passenger side of his truck to help me in. He got in and gave me a charming look and backed out slowly.
