"I've never seen Jacob so out of control," Quil chuckled.
"I'm not out of control!" I growled, glaring at Quil, my dark eyes turning back to the door when I heard it open.
"Hey, Bella, where are you?"
That angelic voice was finally here and I could smell her beautiful scent of vanilla and flowers.
"I'm in the kitchen, Tanya!"
And then, she walked into the kitchen, noticing me. "Ew, what's he doing here?"
For the first time in my life, I was speechless.
"Oh my God… Jacob's quiet as a mouse," Leah smirked as she nudged Embry in the side. "That's never happened. It is about damn time."I
Ignoring Leah was the only thing that I could do right now. All I could see was the beautiful, blond vampire and it pained me so badly that I had to grip the edge of my seat with both my hands. Not touching her or kissing her like no tomorrow, it was the worse feeling I've ever been subjected to. It didn't help that everyone – Bella, my pack, and the Cullens were watching us.
"Tanya, be nice to him," I heard Bella say as she motioned for the Cullens to leave the kitchen. I barely noticed when Embry, Quil, and Leah followed them out.
Before I knew it, it was just Tanya and me in the kitchen, and I stared at her with wide eyes. Oh shit, we were alone, and I wanted to do all those things that I had fantasized about. I never had thought that vampires were beautiful – not even Bella, but Tanya definitely took the cake. How was it possible that she even smelled delectable to me, as well?
"Why are you here?" she seethed, her eyes glaring into mine, and she stepped backward as I moved towards her, leaving only a few inches between us. "Oh. My. God. You are totally stalking me, aren't you?"
I had to laugh at her accusation. If she only knew! I looked into those beautiful eyes. "No… trust me, you would know if I was stalking you. I'm Jacob, Bella's best friend."
She frowned. "But you're a werewolf. You could easily hurt her. You and your pack of mutts could do that. I can't let any of you hurt –"
"Hey, now, wait a minute," I internally growled as I looked at her, keeping my fists clenched in my hands. "I'm not all bad and neither is my pack."
Tanya's eyes widened. "You're the Alpha?"
I smirked at her surprise when she learned that I was the Alpha. "Why do you look so surprised, Tanya?"
Oh fuck. What the hell was happening? When he said my name, it sounded so erotic, and I bit my lip to suppress the moan that was threatening to leave my lips. What was it about him that drew me to him? Kate and Garrett had told me to stay away from him, but for some godforsaken reason, I didn't want to. Vampires and werewolves were supposed to hate each other. It was a known fact. But what I was feeling for him? It didn't feel like hate.
"I – um, nothin'. I just didn't think that you were the Alpha," I managed to squeak out, pushing my blond hair behind my ear as I looked over at him. "What are you even doing here?"
"Well, Bella invited me."
"Hm, you're very interesting, Jacob."
"Are you going to run from me again, Tanya?"
I looked at him and gave him a small smirk. "Maybe, Jacob. I just might run to see if you can actually find me."
He was a werewolf – the fucking Alpha, and here we were flirting with one another. I knew all about the werewolves and that's when I realized something. The way that he was acting and staring at me – it all made sense now. Jacob had imprinted on me.
"Did you… imprint on me?" I blurted out as I looked at his face.
I watched him as a sigh left his lips. "Y-Yes, I did. Does it bother you that I did?"
As I looked out the kitchen, my eyes drifted back to his face, and I bit down on my bottom lip. "I don't know. I honestly do not know what I am feeling."
I was literally glowing. I never ever expected that Landon would have feelings for me. This was something that I had only ever dreamed about. Yet, here we were, sitting in the woods on a blanket, eating the most romantic meal. I had learned that Landon had cooked this delicious meal himself.
"Landon, this is just so amazing," I told him as I let him feed me a bite of the saucy pasta from his fork, moaning as it washed down my throat. "You're the greatest boyfriend ever."
He was so cute when he blushed and I casually slid my hand across his cheek. "Well, I try, Nessie," he murmured.
"I am still in shock. Did you really buy me all of these things or did Alice?"
"No, I did," Landon said with a smile as he took a bite from my fork, as I returned the favor. "I want to be the guy you deserve and who doesn't mind buying you things that you're too afraid of buying."
"Afraid? I was not afraid."
Landon scoffed as he looked over at me. "Oh, don't even start. You didn't buy that dress because you were so scared of wearing it, thinking it wouldn't look great on you. To be honest, Ness, you look amazing in the dress, and I hope that you know that."
"That was one time, Landon, and –"
Landon laughed as he looked over at me with a sparkle in his eyes. "Do you really want me to list all the things you've been afraid of, pretty girl?"
I sighed in happiness with him calling me that. 'Pretty girl' was my new nickname since our last move. I was thinking of calling him 'Boyfriend' but that seemed like so Brooke and Lucas from One Tree Hill. Although, Landon was a lot like Lucas with his writing skills, and I was like Brooke with her fashion sense. I had the most perfect boyfriend that I could ever ask for. I was so very lucky.
"It would definitely be nice," I teased him with a grin as I then shook my head. "But not now, since all I want to do is to enjoy our first date as a couple."
"I think that I can do that."
Today had been a long day. Jacob was making his moves on that bloodsucker. I knew I couldn't think of her that way since Jacob had let me know in no uncertain terms that he wouldn't tolerate that, especially after I had referred to her like that when I first found out. Embry and Quil had went back to La Push and I told them that I would see them much later.
My thoughts went back to my imprinting. I was still pissed the fuck off at what I had done. Emily was royally pissed off with me but it wasn't my fault. I was told that I would never be able to imprint but I had. I had imprinted on the worst possible person – Sam, my ex-boyfriend. I thought back to that moment. I had been going for a walk through the reservation when I saw him. All hell broke loose when it happened too.
"How could you do this to me, Leah?" Emily sobbed as she glanced in between myself, then Sam, before settling her attention on me. "I was so happy with him and then –"
"You're acting like I did this on purpose, Emily. If anyone should be pissed, it should be me! You took Sam away from me after we dated for almost two years."
"Me?" Emily breathed out as she held her chest like she was hurting. "Sam was already gone and you were already having problems from what I heard…"
I growled low in my throat as Emily started to move too closely to my face. "Emily, you stupid bitch. You don't know what you're talking about!"
"Oh, but I do. You were the needy girlfriend. What Sam wanted was a woman – not some girl."
"Emily, what are you doing?" Sam asked as he stepped in between Emily and me. "This isn't you, and you know it. I am sorry for hurting you but you know that I never stopped loving Leah."
When I heard those words, I had taken off running.
So many thoughts were running through my head and I had to admit that I had never been so flustered. My thoughts were everywhere as I walked down the path from Bella's home into the woods. I had run from the imprint because it wasn't supposed to even happen. I had been told that I wouldn't ever imprint but I had. God, was I even barren or was I able to have children like I had always wanted?
I stopped in my tracks when I heard that voice and I turned my head to the side, looking at him. There he was – Sam Uley, and he looked so fuckin' perfect!
I had been running for hours, maybe days. I couldn't really remember how long as I had taken off when I found out that Jacob, Embry, Quil, and Leah went to go see Bella. I had heard this from Paul, who was angry that they were in contact with the bloodsuckers. I was so confused. Because of what happened with Leah, I felt such a strong feel for her. I had imprinted on her at the same moment she had on me. God, things were a mess, and all I wanted to do was to make things better and right for her.
"Sam, you need to go home."
"No, Leah. I am not going home, especially without you," I told her as I reached out to grab her hands, but she pulled back. "Oh, now you don't want me, now that you've imprinted?"
Oh fuck, why the hell did I say that?
"Excuse me, Sam?" Leah growled angrily as she stared at me with wide eyes, crossing her arms over her chest. "You, of all people, know I didn't mean it. I didn't want to imprint on you. If I had a choice, I really wouldn't have done it. Emily and you were –"
"Miserable, Leah. There was no joy in our engagement," I explained to her as I leaned back against an oak tree, taking a look around us. "She was always angry but it wasn't her fault. You were always on my mind. Even though I imprinted, it wasn't what I feel for you."
"Sam, what do you expect? It's not like we can pick up where we left off. That relationship is done and over with and you know it," Leah sighed as she blinked the tears away, causing me to move forward, cupping her face in my hands.
"I love you, Leah, and I will do anything to get you back."
Everyone was gone. Nessie went to go find Landon for his surprise date. Angela and Ben went with my family since they were part of the family. I think they went back to the house or to stroll around Seattle since it was big enough. I think Rosalie and Emmett went somewhere to have sex from the looks that Rosalie had been giving him. Although, that was something that I didn't want to think about – too late.
"Do you need help?" I asked Bella as I saw her in the kitchen, putting the food into containers, and I just couldn't stop my eyes from roving over her body.
When I saw that smile on her face, my face lit up like a lonely star in the sky. I moved to the counter, helping her put away the food. Just being around her, it was so hard to not do anything. It made me realize that I couldn't live without Bella. Even after I left her all those years ago, I hadn't dated or been intimate with another girl. She was the only one for me. Bella was my special star and I loved her.
Before I realized what I was doing, my face was into her neck, inhaling the sweet scent I had smelled that day in the forest – strawberries and freesia. Oh fuck, this was so bad, but the next thing I knew, I was wrapping my arms around her waist, pulling her close. I then pulled my face away from her neck and I looked down at her.
"Edward, what are you doing?" she asked me as she looked into my eyes.
"Just one night, Bella – please! Can you just give me one night?" I asked her with my pleading eyes, sliding my hands over her hips, pulling her body against mine. "You're so beautiful right now."
I smirked at her one word response. "But you're always beautiful and sexy. Will you let me, Isabella Swan? I want to make love to you."
Bella slid her hands along my arms and she licked her lips. "I want you too, Edward."
As my lips crashed against hers, I couldn't help but wonder what we were getting ourselves into. At this moment, I didn't care, and I backed us out of the kitchen, continuing to kiss her, while she led the way to her bedroom up the stairs.
