I just didn't think the whole imprint thing was a big deal. Frankly, from Sam's point of view, he knew that it was going to either happen to him or me. The thought of imprinting on a girl scared the shit out of me because it practically told me who I was going to wind up with for the rest of my life.
With the way that Sam was acting, I wasn't sure if any girl was ever going to reach Sam. He had been dating Leah Clearwater for a while, but he had pushed her away when he didn't return. But he didn't know where she was because I had promised Leah I wouldn't tell him. Leah and Sam had dated in high school, but Sam broke up with Leah the day before his transformation actually happened.
When Bella came to me when it had been raining, we got into a heated argument, and then, it happened. She thought I was being rude because I couldn't take my eyes off of her and then I did the unthinkable. I pushed Bella away. I was going to apologize a few days later, but I found out from Charlie that he sent Bella to live with her mother.
I looked at Leah as she sat on the large boulder in the meadow in Forks. She was finally back from Jacksonville after Bella had been back for days. I had become worried about her. I couldn't help it; she was still part of the Quileute family, even if she didn't want to be. I just wanted to stay in La Push instead of looking around for Leah when I had my own issues to deal with.
"Leah, where have you been?" I asked in an angry tone, shaking my head in disbelief. I sat down on the boulder right next to her. "I've been worried thinking that something happened."
"Sorry… I've just been running. I didn't mean to worry you, Jake."
"Uh huh… all right," I said as I stared at her, noticing that something was different about her. I raised an eyebrow at her. "Is there something I should know?"
Leah frowned as she looked down. "Jake, I'm literally fucked."
I raised an eyebrow. "And exactly how are you fucked, Leah? You look horrible. What the hell happened?"
"Jake, I imprinted on the worst person imaginable."
"Aw, Leah, it can't be that bad," I said, trying to give her hope when I hadn't believed in the imprint concept for years. "Who did you imprint on?"
My eyes widened as I looked at her in horror, but then I chuckled.
"Jake, this is not something to laugh about. We broke up. It's not suppose to be 'Sam and Leah' anymore. That love story is done and over with," she sighed as she looked over at me before looking down at the ground again. "And he won't leave me alone. He's been stalking me and I swear… I'm going to hit him if he comes close."
"Hey, he just might like it," I teased, earning a growl from her, and I shrugged. "Hey, it could be worse like the smitten Jared or even Embry. Hell, it could have been me."
Leah smirked. "We both know it couldn't have been you, Jake. Besides, you imprinted on Bella. Speaking of her, when are you going to see her? She's been back for two weeks."
I sighed. "I know, Leah, but the last time, we got in a heated argument. I am not sure if she would even want to see me after that."
Leah shrugged. "I know, but you're best friends. I mean, she's the girl for you, and for some reason, I can see the two of you being the perfect imprint couple."
I rolled my eyes. "Whatever. Maybe I'll see her later today or tomorrow."
"You better, or I'll bring her to you. Jake, she deserves to know… everything. I got the easy way out, but you have to explain to her about werewolves. She has no idea what you are. Although, when she finds out, I don't think she'll be frightened that you are one," Leah said with a wink, smiling. "After all, she did date a bloodsucker."
I sighed as I bit down on my bottom lip. I had been back after graduating high school and I moved back in with Charlie, who was dating Sue Clearwater. I was still in shock because the last time I mentioned him dating, he just rolled his eyes, so it was nice to see him happy. His face lit up when he would see Sue. Charlie was happy – really happy and it just made me smile.
I turned my head when I walked in the kitchen and I looked over at my father, who had a little smile on his face. I had never seen him so happy before I moved to Jacksonville, but he was now. I enjoyed how happy my dad was and I wanted nothing more than for him to have it for as long as possible. Renee had it with Phil, and Charlie deserved it just as well.
"Yeah, what's up, Dad?"
He smiled at me. "Do you think you can make extra food tonight? Leah's back in town from what I hear. Billy's coming too and you'll never believe who's coming with him?"
Just seeing my father smile made me smile just as well. "Who's coming with Billy tonight, Dad?"
My gaze froze. No, this couldn't be happening. I wanted Jake as far away from me since last time. Jake had been so cruel to me and I honestly couldn't see myself forgiving him. No, he had been so cold towards me, and he had said the rudest things.
"Why?" I blurted out as I shook my head in disbelief. "I mean, why is he coming?"
Charlie looked at me and sighed. "C'mon, Bella, it's been two years since you two have seen one another."
I shrugged my shoulders. "It doesn't matter. I will make enough lasagna for seven people. Don't you worry about it, Dad. I will be on my best behavior."
"Thank you, Bella. Well, I've got to head to work. I will be back in a couple of hours, Bella. If anyone comes early, please be nice."
As I nodded my head, I watched Charlie walk out the door. Then I began taking out the ingredients I needed to make my homemade pasta. I still couldn't believe this was happening to me. I just wanted to run away and to never return, but I was actually happy to be home. Yeah, sure, Jake and me had a heated fight last time we saw each other, but no… I was not going to run away anytime soon.
I watched Jacob come back to the reservation twenty minutes ago, but Leah wasn't with him and it annoyed me to no end. Leah had been looking for Jacob the other day, and when I saw Leah for the first time since I had become a wolf and imprinted. It was a feeling that I didn't want to let go, and when she found out what I had done, she was like a bat out of hell.
I then remembered how pissed off and sexy Leah had looked. I smirked as I recollected how she looked at me too.
"What the fuck did you do?" she growled as she glared at me with obvious anger in her eyes. "You did something, and don't you dare try to deny it. I know you, Sam…"
"Leah, it's noth-"
"Don't you even say it's nothing because it is!" Leah groaned as she placed her hands on her hips, tapping her foot repeatedly against the ground. Then she sighed. "Just tell me, Sam. I promise I won't get mad."
I looked at her with a skeptical look on my face. "Well, the thing is, I kind of imprinted on you, Leah."
Oh man, she was pissed the fuck off, and I raked my hand through my hair nervously, trying to not get nervous and scared. Before I knew it, Leah slapped me across my face.
"Leah," I groaned as I rubbed my sore cheek from her slap. "You and I both know I didn't do it intentionally. I would never do something that cruel to you. I'm not like that."
Oh yeah, she didn't believe me, and she stormed off. I couldn't help but follow her. Apparently, she didn't even know about the whole imprinting thing all that well. Jacob hadn't really explained it to her because of the fact that he was trying to protect Bella, even though the red-headed vampire wasn't around anymore.
"Yeah and I am going to Bella's, who's apparently cooking for all of us – Leah, Seth –"
I listened while Jacob talked to Embry about the dinner that Charlie had invited him and Billy and Jacob to. I knew there was no way that I was going to get invited. Although, I could go ahead and talk to Sue since she liked me. Surely, she wouldn't mind me coming, right? I just needed to talk to Leah, but at this rate, Leah was only going to keep on pushing me away. All I knew was Leah was the girl for me. One way or another, Leah would fall for me.
I looked at my cousin, Emily, frowning a little bit. I had invited her over because I was so confused about my feelings for Sam. He had broken my heart when we were in high school. And now, we were supposed to be together because of the imprint? I didn't mean to, but I had noticed that I kept on staring at Sam when I was sure he wasn't staring at me.
"Leah," Emily said sympathetically as she placed her hand on my shoulder. "It sounds like he's sorry for dumping you. I mean, guys can be really slow when it comes to girls."
"Emily, I don't think he knows what he is doing. I mean, when he disappeared for weeks, it was tragic for everyone when no one knew where he was. I mean, sure – we broke up the day before his transformation, but still. I just don't know what he expects from me," I sighed as I crossed my arms over my chest and I looked over at my cousin with a sigh.
"All I can say is there's no harm in giving him a chance. From what I remember, Leah, you still love him, don't you?"
"Well, yeah, but-"
Emily shook her head as she pushed some hair away from my face. "No buts. There must be a reason for Sam wanting another shot with you, Leah. Hey… why don't you invite him to the dinner tonight?"
I grumbled, crossing my arms over my chest. "I don't think that's the smartest idea you've come up with… like ever, Emily. Why the hell would I invite him?"
"Because if not, Sam will probably persuade your mother in letting you go," Emily laughed as she looked at me with a twinkle in her eyes. "We both know that your mother still has a soft spot for the two of you getting back together."
Oh God, Emily was right. My mother still bragged about Sam and there was nothing that would change her mind too. Damn, I had to invite Sam. I really didn't want to talk to him, though.
"Fine," I mumbled as I got to my feet. I fixed the strings on my khaki shorts, tying them together, and I looked at her. "Let me go find this boy…"
"Leah, Sam's not a boy anymore. He hasn't been a boy in years. Sam is a man – a man that looks like a sinful God."
I laughed at her words. Of course he didn't look like a boy anymore. None of the guys in the pack did. Geez, what have I gotten myself into?
- It's like she's the only one for you.
- So, he would move heaven and earth for her.
- When we're together, it doesn't hurt anymore.
- It's a connection that we can't lose.
- With every move you take, you're all I want.
- You are what matters in the world to me.
- I'd move heaven and earth just to be with you.
- When you're gone, you're all I think about.
- And so, you're the reason I exist.
- It's the motion of your heartbeat that keeps me together.
- When you're in pain, I can feel it.
