From the moment that Renesmee was born, my wolfish instincts made it unbearable for me to leave her side for any length of time. I always knew that there would never be any other options for myself, that this stunning little girl (I still say “little”, even though her younger soul would forever reside in the body of a 17 year old) would be my only love for the rest of eternity. I also accepted the fact that there were no other couples like us in existence, and while that fact made the both of us a little uneasy, I knew the strength of our erratic love could overcome any obstacle thrown our way.

“Jake, are you okay?” For a moment I had forgotten that Nessie lay beside me, her head resting on my chest and her homework sprawled over the floor beside us.

“Sure I am. It must just be this Alaskan air finally getting to me, or maybe it’s just this new house,” I replied, gesturing to the room at large. It had only been a month since Bella, Edward, Renesmee and I had made the move from Washington to Denali, and the four of us had enrolled in high school together.

I caught Edward’s gaze from across the room. Despite the fact that he knew my every thought, I was confident he wouldn’t dare express his judgment on the matter while Nessie was present. However much he detestedthe relationship I held with his only child, he considered himself too noble to openly oppose our bond.

Nessie turned over and put a hand to my cheek. I love you radiated from her every thought and mental images of our most cherished moments occupied my mind.

“I love you too, Nessie, never doubt that,” I vowed, sitting up to kiss her gingerly on the lips. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed Bella as she strolled over to the sofa beside where we lay, determined to play the responsible parent role.

I sighed and turned to look at her. “You know, Bella, when you were 17 you and Edward were allowed to be perfectly open about your relationship, and no one ever got in your way,” I spat at her, obvious aggravation seething in my words.

She laughed at this. “Oh yes, because a teenage werewolf striving to eliminate the love of my life does not fall into the category of ‘getting in my way.’”

I hated when she made a good point. “That was different,” I grumbled, determined not to see the similarity. “Anyway, do you think you and Edward could lay off a little? The omnipresent attitude is really starting to annoy.”

“Sorry, no can do Jake,” she laughed.

I growled. “Come on Jake, let’s go hunting,” Nessie suggested, sensing an argument arising.

It had been awhile since I had last phased, so the thought of my animal facade taking over seemed comforting, not to mention a chance to finally be alone with Renesmee. I pulled off my black T-shirt and, hand in hand with Nessie, moved toward the back door.

“Not too late you two,” came Bella’s voice from the sofa where she still sat.

At the site of the unfamiliar woods behind our cottage, my previous annoyance ceased with the thought of transforming and exploring this new territory. Nessie must have felt my eagerness, for she looked once at me and smirked, then ran off toward the trees.

I was not far behind her. The reassuring feeling of four legs soon overtook me, and I was soon running beside her, the euphoria of the quick speed engulfing me once more. I could hear as well as her the herd of deer grazing in a nearby meadow, and an exchange of silent nods informed me that this was the object of our hunt.

Overtaking the animals was not at all difficult. Within seconds, Nessie was draining all life from her prey, while I distractedly ate my rather larger catch.

When she was finished with her kill, Nessie came over and stroked my fur, and for awhile the two of us were at peace, side by side. But that silence was eventually broken.

“Jake, can you please phase back?” she asked in her high soprano voice. “I really need to talk to you.” Reluctant as I might be to return to my human form, I could not deny a single request of hers. So I saunteredtoward the nearest batch of trees, untied my cut off jeans from the leather cord around my ankle, and phased back to my human form.

“Okay, let’s talk,” I said, as I returned to her side. She immediately shifted her position to look me straight in the eyes.

“You have been preoccupied lately. What’s on your mind?”

I sighed. “You can tell me you know,” she whispered, looking at me with upmost concern in her eyes.

“I’ve just been thinking about us,” I confessed. “Everything is just so unpredictable, it makes me nervous.”

Nessie chuckled. “Is that all?” she teased.

“I’m serious, Ness. I feel as though this whole imprinting thing has left you with no choices, and that I’m-”

She cut me off by putting a finger to my lips. “Jake, you know that I am okay with all of it. The whole imprinting ordeal is completely inconsequential. I can’t envision being with anyone else, regardless of any wolfish enchantment that makes you mine. So will you please stop concerning yourself with matters that are irrevocable?”

I smiled down at her “You always know exactly what to say, Ness.”

“It’s a talent of mine,” she laughed. “Come on, we better get back to the house before my Dad has a complete meltdown.”

And, pulling me to my feet with uncommon strength, we ambled back toward the house, her hand nestled in mine, with the feeling of upmost permanenceto her hold.
