Bound to You

The Cullen's have left Forks after Bella's eighteenth birthday because Edward wanted to protect her. They left her in harm's way, where Victoria found her all alone. Victoria left her for dead, but Victoria actually turned Isabella Swan into a blood-thirsty vampire. Since she hasn't been seen in years, everyone assumes she is dead, but when Jake sees Bella, he imprints and nearly loses himself. What will happen between the vampire and the werewolf, especially since Bella can't remember Jake?

"Does your family know what's going on?"

Kate rolled her eyes at the mention of her family. "Yeah… Tanya's not the happiest. It's a good thing that Tanya and your angry wolf pack aren't in the same room. It wouldn't be pretty."

"Sam, we should do it," Emily said as she spoke up finally and she smiled over at Kate. "Does the offer still stand of us living here?"

"Yeah, why not? You three seem like you'll be good to my Bella, especially you," Kate said as she looked into my direction.

"He's especially nice to Bella because he imprinted on her," Paul snickered as he walked into the kitchen.


It took everything in me to not shift and beat the living shit out of that bastard. Seriously? He imprinted on my sister and he had the nerve to ruin how I was going to tell Bella? I just got her back in my life and that fucker was seriously trying to push her out of my life. Who the hell did Paul think he was? If it wasn't for me, he never would have met my darling sister.

"You mother –"

"Jacob," Sam said as he placed a hand on my shoulder to calm me down so I wouldn't shift, and he glanced to Paul with a glare. "You – outside, now! We're going to have a long… talk."

"Sam, she deserves to know. I mean, she's been back for a while, and –"

He had to be kidding, right? He was seriously trying to play the innocent card in all of this? I really didn't want Bella to find out like this; I couldn't even look at her right now. God, this was so embarrassing, and I could hear Paul snickering the whole time he walked outside, while Sam lectured him.

"Imprinting… what's that?" Bella asked with curiosity in her eyes as she looked to me.

The guys took off running when I gave them a glare. Emily followed the guys out after she gave my arm a squeeze, and I was so grateful to have her in my life. Whenever Sam was busy, she was there, and right now, I wish she was here. I then looked at Kate, hoping she would leave. Although, this was still her home, so she really didn't have to.

"I am going to go finish packing," Kate said as she kissed Bella's cheek. "Listen to him, Bella. He's a good man."

I smiled at the words that I pretended I didn't hear as I watched her leave the kitchen. How was it even possible that I could feel this nervous? Yeah, I had imprinted on Bella, but Paul had literally fucked up everything. I was going to make him pay for telling Bella what I had done.

"So, are you going to tell me?" Bella asked as she stood in front of me when I took a seat on a stool.

"Tell you what, Bells?" I asked, trying to stall the question once again, and I found my palms getting all sweaty.

"You're so silly, Jake. Exactly what is imprinting, anyway?" Bella asked me as she moved to stand in front of me to make sure I didn't leave.

I wasn't even sure how to tell her this because for all I know, she might run away from me when she realized what I had done. The last thing I wanted to do was to frighten my imprint. Bella had always meant something to me before I transformed, but ever since I imprinted, the way I felt for her was something completely different.

"I don't know," I hesitated as I looked down at the ground. "It's kind of complicated."

"Jacob, have you met me?" she laughed as she moved her right hand into my hair, pushing it back away from my face, and she shook her head. "I'm a vampire. Our relationship is complicated…"

"It's more complicated," I grumbled as I slid my hand up into my hair where her hand was; I pulled it to my heart, biting my lip out of nervousness. "I should have told you when I first saw you, but I didn't want to scare you, Bella. I mean, you have been through hell and back. The fact that you can't see your parents and the reality of us being bound for life is –"

I stopped talking when I realized that I blurted out those words. Damnit… this was definitely not how I wanted to tell her, and I frowned. I wished that I could turn back time or do something. I was like putty right now. Geez, I just couldn't stop myself it seemed the more I thought about it.

"Wait, what did you just say?" Bella asked as her eyes went wide. "When you say bound for life, do you mean like –"

"Soul mates, Bella. It's much stronger," I finished for her as I took a deep breath and I looked down. "But it's way stronger."

"But… vampires and werewolves don't –"

"I know, I know, Bella, but they also reek to one another. Although, you smell so good I can dive in," I groaned as I bit my tongue from saying anything else to her. "Don't I smell awful to you?"

"Well, no, but –"

"Face it, Bella. We're supposed to be together."

I frowned when she let go of my hands and she took a step back.

"Imprints don't choose the girl. We were supposed to be together, Bella. It wasn't my choice. I know you're still trying to find yourself, but –"

Before I had a chance, she was out the door, and I panicked. When I ran out the door, she was gone, and I shook my head when the pack and Emily turned to look at me. I could have caught Bella if I wanted to, but I thought that maybe I should give her some space. It was the least that I could do, right?

"I knew she wouldn't be able to handle it!" Paul snickered.

"Paul –"

I growled low in my throat and Sam grabbed Emily as I was way too close to her. Every portion of my body ached as I felt my bones contract when I lunged at Paul, causing his own body to shift into that form of a wolf. We fought and we fought hard. I gave everything I had to offer. I didn't even notice Embry and Leah leave, either.


Arg! How could this happen? From what Jacob told me, we were mates, but vampires and werewolves didn't mesh well. Although, he was right from the things he did tell me. Jacob didn't smell bad. In actuality, he smelled divine; like pine, leather, and the freshest water that anyone could smell. Oh God… why did my heart hurt? It didn't hurt like this before. I leaned against a tress as I slid down the length of it, placing my hand there. It didn't make sense because I didn't have a beating heart.

"Bella, are you all right?"

I lifted my head to see two members from Sam's pack. I think their names were Embry and Leah if I was right, and they were together. Had they imprinted on each other too?

"Does it look like I am?" I frowned as I rubbed the sore spot where the pain lingered in my chest.

"Hurts, doesn't it?" Leah asked as she sat down on the grass. "I hate to break it to you, but your feeling is only going to get worse the more you push Jacob away."

"Wait, what?"

Embry sighed. "When I imprinted on Leah, it was hell. Everyone thought that she wouldn't be able to be happy. When I imprinted on her, it was hell."

"Hey, now –"

"What?" Embry shook his head. "I'm telling her the truth. You were not receptive to the idea of us being together and it didn't help that Sam hated that I imprinted on you. Anyways, the more she pulled away, the more pain the both of us felt, and it was no merry-go-round, especially when we patrolled. Leah almost died when she couldn't shift one night because of the pain."

My eyes widen in surprise. "Are you telling me the worse it gets, one of us could get hurt?"

Leah nodded her head. "Yes. We're not trying to pressure you, but Jake's been – well, how do I say this?"

"He's been annoying for not telling you and it's getting harder for him to shift, especially since there are no vampires around. With you pushing him away, it could be suicide for him," Embry sighed as he shook his head. "And he's fighting Paul right now."

I frowned as I instantly stood up. "Why?"

"Bella, it was Jake's right to tell you he imprinted on you, but Paul did it because he can't stand vampires," Leah explained to me as she looked away. "Bella, I fear that if they keep on fighting, Jacob might hurt Paul, or vice versa."


I was heartbroken, and my chest felt so tight that I thought my heart was going to jump out of my chest. I was so stupid to even attempt to fight Paul after Bella, but I wasn't thinking at the time. Even with Paul and his anger, it was the dumbest decision I had ever made.


I turned my furry face towards her angelic voice when Paul bit into my shoulder, making me cry out in pain, and my body went still as I fell down to the ground.

"Damnit, Paul!"

The last thing I heard was Paul's heavy growl when Sam ordered for him to follow him. I watched Sam come towards me when Bella stopped him, placing her hand up, and she shook her head.

"Let me."

My shoulder was killing me as I finally shifted to my human form, laying there in a crumbled ball in the soft grass. I wasn't ashamed of my body at all. I knew that if Bella was human, she'd be blushing, and for the first time ever, I missed her blushing cheeks.


I'm here, Jacob," she whispered as she placed her hand in mine where she helped me up to my feet. "How about I tend your wounds inside?"

"All right, but don't eat me," I joked in her direction as the rest of the pack watched her help me inside, admiring her vampire strength to help me steady with my burning and aching shoulder.

"I wouldn't dare," she winked at me as she shut the door behind us, shutting everyone out to give us some time. "I'm sorry."

Bella raised an eyebrow as she led me up the stairs to the bathroom. "For what?"

"Imprinting on you, Bella?" I sighed as I inhaled a deep breath and I frowned. "I never meant to ruin your life, but it was something I had no control over."
