I gasped as I saw Jacob, who had parked his truck besides my baby truck (compared to his) and he looked so damn good. He was wearing a muscle shirt that showed off those glorious abs, a pair of running pants, and he too had a mp3 player in his hand.
"Oh! Hi, Jacob," I said, my voice sounding a little higher than normal, and I bit my lip from embarrassment.
"Are you ready to get going?"
I was literally going to die. Yeah, she was wearing a pair of windbreaker pants and matching jacket, but she left the jacket open to that tight shirt that hugged at her breasts. Fuck. I definitely didn't need to get excited, especially since we had to teach class in a few hours. As we began to run, those luscious breasts of hers began to bounce, and I looked away.
This was a damn sin to be running with Bella Swan but she looked good. I was being a complete pervert and I had to get myself together. I had never acted like this and it worried me. Geez! If Rosalie or Alice could see me now, they would just laugh at the way that I was looking at Bella. It wasn't my fault that Bella wore what she was wearing or the fact that my eyes couldn't tear themselves away from her body.
I still couldn't believe that Edward had cheated on her and it hadn't just been one time, either. I didn't understand why any guy would even do that. It made no sense. I was curious about why he had, especially with Tanya Denali. It really didn't make any sense why he would be with that blond when he had Bella.
I groaned at Bella's loud voice and stopped running, lowering the volume of the jazz music that was ringing in the earphones and soothed me each and every morning.
I saw her smile as she looked at me. My eyes were all wide with confusion. God, how was it that even when she smiled, she could make my heart speed up against my chest.
Pound. Pound. Pound.
I needed to get a grip and quickly, especially to the skeptical look that she was giving me. I didn't need to act like a fool and I didn't know what it was about her that made me feel so lost and out of control.
"Were you listening to anything I said?"
I felt my cheeks redden and I shook my head with a grin. "No. I'm sorry, but with the way you look in that shirt and those pants-"
"Oh my God!" she groaned in disgust as she glared at me.
"My God too," I winked at her as I laughed softly, running a hand into my hair and giving her a grin. "I'm being serious, Bella. You are really beautiful. I'm trying my hardest to not be a perv-"
I looked at her with a raised eyebrow. Was I really that bad?
"Hey now," I grumbled as I looked at her. "I am really trying here, Bella. You deserve to be respected by a man and I am trying to do just that."
Hmph. Jacob Black was very strange. Guys only wanted to screw me or screw me over to get closer to Rosalie. My last boyfriend only dated me because he wanted to date her. The guy had been a complete douche and it made me wonder if I could ever date the right guy.
I knew what I had with Edward was just high school love. I wanted something more – something stronger. I wanted to see fireworks when I kissed a guy. With Edward, it had been pure and innocent love. Yeah, he was the love of my life when high school was over, but I knew it wasn't. I was eighteen when I graduated Forks High and I had never experienced the love that I saw with Emmett and Rosalie.
"Um, yeah, I guess so," I shrugged my shoulders as I looked at Jacob, beginning to walk down the sidewalk even though I knew we had to go home soon to get ready.
I wasn't used to guys being friendly to me like he was being, especially Jacob Black. He was the total package of a jock in high school – the hot girlfriend, the body, the friends, and most of all, the captain of the football and basketball teams. He would make rude remarks but I swore I saw several flickers of his soft eyes looking at me. Every single time, I would feel my cheeks flush in embarrassment, and Edward would ask what was wrong. I would just say that I was cold or how lucky I was to be with him.
"You guess so?" he smirked as he looked over at me, and he gave me a nudge with his hip against mine.
I swore if my cheeks weren't pink from the cold air, they were now. What was it about Jacob that made me so nervous, along with the palms of my hands feeling sweaty? Geez, I was a fucking mess, and I blamed it for Jacob and that body of his.
"Fine… I deserve to be happy. Is that the answer you were looking for?"
When I saw him smile at me, nodding his head as well, I sighed and took off running to finish my run. I needed to go home. Jacob Black was driving me insane and it infuriated me.
. . . . .
Ten hours later, I was standing on Alice's doorstep, ringing the bell desperately until Alice or Jasper opened the door. I was a mess, and any one of my friends or my family would notice it. The entire day I couldn't even form a sentence around Jacob without becoming a nervous wreck. When I would try to say something, I would only manage to stutter my words, causing Jacob to smile.
"Bella, whoa, what's wrong?" Alice asked concerned, pulling the door open. She quickly shut it when I was inside of her and Jasper's place. "You look horrible. Here – let me make some tea."
"Alice, I… I think I'm falling for Jacob or developing feelings for him," I paused as I held up my hand to continue, a frown coming across my face. "I couldn't do anything around him without acting like a fool. I tried talking to him but I stuttered. I fucking stuttered! What the hell is the matter with me?"
Alice beamed as she turned on the kettle for tea and led me to the stools at the counter. "Bella, take a deep breath. This is good news! Do you know if he likes you too?"
I frowned, shrugging my shoulders. "I don't know. He would smile at me when I would try to talk to him. I mean, I am losing my mind. I couldn't even form a coherent sentence without mumbling to myself. Even when I was crushing on Edward, I was never like this. What's wrong with me?"
Alice just smiled at me as she poured the contents of the kettle into two cups she snagged out of the cabinet over our head. "Bella, you're opening your heart to the hottest teacher at Forks High School."
I could not wipe the grin from my face as I walked into my apartment. I had never felt this way for any girl before. Even when I was dating Rosalie in my junior and senior year in high school, I was never ever over the moon about dating her. Rosalie was classified as the hottest girl but I didn't think so. We got together because I was captain and quarterback of the football team and she was the captain of the cheerleaders. It was typical that the captain of the football and cheerleading teams got together. Rosalie was really nice to me too.
"Bella was way prettier, though," I found myself saying as I opened the refrigerator to see what I could eat. "She's always been beautiful, and yet, I was a complete ass because of her damn boyfriend."
I blamed Edward for the way that I treated her because Embry, Quil, and Jared actually liked her. Edward and I… could not stand each other and it was because of the fact that Edward was stringing Bella along. At least, that's what it looked like. For all I know, Bella could have known.
"Hey Jake, are you home?"
As I heard the knocking and Emmett's voice, I raised an eyebrow at Bella's brother being here. I sighed as I shut the refrigerator and I strode over to the front door, pulling it open. Emmett wasn't the only one there, either. Jasper, Rosalie, Alice, and Bella, who was hiding behind Rosalie, were there. What was going on? I didn't do something wrong, did I?
This was way too weird. I had never hung out with them. The only person I did hang out with was Rosalie but that was because we were dating. It was actually like I had friends besides Embry, Quil, Jared, and Sam. And they were nice people too, the more that I realized it.
"What are you guys doing here?"
Alice looked past my shoulder, making a disgusted face. "Ew, your place is a mess. When was the last time you cleaned up? Do you even do laundry?"
I smirked at Bella's angelic voice and I nodded. "Yes ma'am, I do. I've been busy with the school year. You know… getting my syllabus selected, along with the football season that's starting up next week."
"It can't be that hard," Alice grumbled as she moved past me, and I raised my eyebrow at her strength.
"I'm sorry, man," Jasper said with a shake of his head as he walked behind Alice, grabbing her hand and sighing. "Alice, you can't just walk into someone's home like you own it."
"Jake doesn't mind, do you, Jacob?"
"See, he doesn't mind!" Alice exclaimed with a huge smile on her face, as she shook her head.
"Alice, you're a pain in the ass," Bella exclaimed, adverting eye contact with me and shaking her head. "You can't just walk in here. This is Jacob's place. You don'tevenknow him like that."
"Anyways," Alice said, rolling her eyes as she looked over at me when everyone else walked inside. She crossed her arms over her chest. "We were in the mood for bowling and Bella came up with the idea of inviting you along. You'll come, right?"
I felt my heart leap at the thought of Bella inviting me and I turned to look at her, noticing her cheeks looking a bit pink. Oh damn, she was even more gorgeous with blushing cheeks.
"You want me to come?"
Bella nodded her head. "Y-Yes, I would."
I beamed with excitement. "When did you guys want to go?"
"Would now be an inconvenience?" Rosalie asked as she held Emmett's hand, leaning onto him.
"If you guys don't mind letting me shower and change?"
"No, go right ahead, Jacob," Alice beamed as she pushed me in the direction of the hallway and I glared at her. "We will be here waiting."
"Fine," I grumbled as I walked away after grabbing a pair of jeans from the couch, earning a disgusted look from Alice's face. "I'll be back soon."
