Chapter 2: Hunting

Going hunting with Jake is always so much fun; we always mess around and see who can get the better catch, just like we would when I was younger. I was walking beside him while he was in his wolf form. I was daydreaming and not paying attention to any smells or sounds of the animals around me. When I looked around for Jacob, he wasn’t there.

“Now where did he go?” I muttered to myself. I knew he was hiding to see if I could find him.

Wolves don’t smell horrible to me like they do to my family, but it is a very distinctive smell for me. I took in a deep breath and took in his scent. “Hmm…I smell… wolf!” I cried out playing his game. I turned around and a big horse sized wolf jumped at me and started licking my face. “Ugh Jake! That’s so gross!” I cried. I tried to push him off me, since I was only half vampire I wasn’t as strong as him, I could hear his barking laugh as he got off me.

I stood up and brushed myself off, “Let’s go find some food.” I said running at vampire speed. Jake was stronger than me but he wasn’t nowhere near as fast, I definitely get my speed from my dad.

I stopped quickly and took in another deep breath, this time searching for something far more different than wolf. I was hunting. Deer, not far north of me, there was about 6 of them, Jake was beside me now and I know he smelled what I did. I gave him a satisfied look.

“I’ll beat ya!” I yelled as I ran laughing, I could hear him behind me, but I could smell the deer ahead of me and suddenly I was on the hunt. Forgetting my surroundings I could feel my mouth turn into a snare as I took down the biggest deer with ease, I sunk my teeth into the animal feeling the blood ooze into my mouth.

Jake had about 4 deer and I had 2, he always had the bigger appetite. I got up from what was remaining of my meal and looked at Jake, he was already done waiting for me to finish.

“Jake will you phase back, I want to talk to you.” Jake gave me a quizzical look and shrugged his shoulders. I turned around knowing that he would be naked when he phased, just the thought of it made my cheeks flush. Just another thing I had inherited from my Mom. My mom was convinced I was so much like my dad, but honestly, it was just my speed, musical abilities, and looks. In reality, I was my mom reincarnated. Needless to say, Emmett was ecstatic.

I heard Jake phase and I gave him a few more seconds to put his shorts on before I turned around.

“Ok, what did you want to talk about?” I barely heard him, he looked so good without a shirt, he had beautiful dark skin, and his abs were so defined. I could feel my cheeks burn again as I realized I was staring.

“There’s that blush I love so much.” He said coming towards me with a smile on his face. He took my face in his burning hands and pulled my face towards his and kissed me. It wasn’t a hurried kiss, it was gentle and loving and I could have melted in his arms right there, but I was on a mission I wanted to know what my dad and Jake were talking about when they were in grandpa’s office.

Regretfully I pulled away, but not before I put my forehead on his chest and whispered, “I love you.”

“I love you too Ness .” He said stroking my hair. I closed my eyes and enjoyed this private moment we rarely had together. Jake pulled away from me this time. “So you wanted to talk to me.”

“Yeah, I did. I want to know what you and dad were talking about, no lies. I don’t believe a word dad told me this morning.” I said looking at him sternly in the eye.

“ Ness it’s really nothing.” He said as he started to walk back towards the house. Its times like these when I wished I inherited my dad’s mind reading ability rather than his speed.

“Come on Jake, tell me.” I begged.

He looked at the ground as he walked, “Like I said, it’s nothing, now I have something I want to ask you.” He smiled. I knew he was trying to change the subject, but his smile made me forget everything. “Would you mind going with me to the Port Angeles fair?”

“Yeah, I’ll go; you know I just have to run it by mom and dad first.”

“Yeah, I know.” He said, and then he started looking at me with a mischievous glint in his eyes.

“Jake. What are you thinking?” I asked him backing away from him as he was creeping closer and closer to me. Then, two things happened in a quick succession, I heard a bird screech right next to me and I turned my head to look, then all of a sudden I was on Jake’s shoulder and he was running home. “Jake! Jake put me down!” I screamed, he knew I hated when he carried me. “Jacob Black I mean it!” I shouted as I pounded on his back with my fists.

He finally got home and put me down then started running away from me. I easily caught him, of course, and tackled him to the ground lying on top of him. He quickly gave me a passionate kiss, and everything else was forgotten.
