"Not really but I think it'll be good for the two of you. All you need to do is tell Bella how much you truly mean to her, Jacob, and everything will work out."

I gave her a ridiculed look on my face. "How are you so good at this? Do you have that much experience in this?"

When she looked at me, she looked nervous. "It's all right, but I guess you could say that."

I nodded my head and I decided not to pry since she wanted to keep her relationship quiet and under wraps.

"Thank you very much, Emily."

LPOV

Breaking the kiss, I let out a shaky breath, and I frowned just the slightest bit because I didn't want it to end. I really needed to stop getting angry at Sam, but it was so hard because he had broken my heart more than anyone could ever imagine. He didn't even know what I felt. Ah, hell, of course he did. As I looked over at him, I saw that small smile on his face when he pushed my hair from my face to behind my ear. Before I knew it, he lifted me up into his arms where he began to walk us down the path of the woods.

"Sam, what are you doing?"

"Taking you somewhere warm, Lee-Lee. Would you prefer to walk instead?"

I shook my head that I did prefer for him to carry me. Honestly, with as strong as he was, I knew I wasn't too heavy, and for the first time ever, I felt safe in his arms. I loved being here and it was because of Sam. I had to stop pushing him away, but I guess it had to be because of the fact that he had broken my heart right before he turned into a wolf.

"I'm very glad you're not pushing me away, Lee-Lee," Sam told me with a grin as he walked down the path of the woods. "I really hate arguing and fighting with you. Then again, I guess that's just how we roll, isn't it?"

I laughed at his words as I looked over at him with a bright smile, shocked to how I didn't mind it so much that I was here, in his arms. I felt so safe and secure being in his strong arms. Being with Sam felt so right and just so perfect that I never ever wanted to leave out of his grasp and he knew it. I was pretty sure that he did anyway.

Before I knew it, we were standing in front of his arms when he set me down, and I lifted my gaze to look up at him, the dress clinging to my body from the rain pouring down here.

"I hope this is okay?" he asked carefully as he looked over at me with a sheepish smile on his handsome face. "I mean, since it's raining… and it's closer, I just thought that –"

I pressed my finger against his lips and I shook my head. "It's fine, Sam. Thank you."

"Are you sure that it is? I mean, I didn't really ask you," Sam chuckled as he pulled my body against his hard one.

"It's fine. You're worrying too much, Sam."

"I can't help it," he chuckled once again as he stepped away where I pouted.

As he unlocked the door, he grabbed my hand, tugging me inside of his house. I hadn't really been back in his house in the longest time. Being Jacob's beta, it was way easier, but I had a feeling that I would prefer being here the more I looked around. It still looked at the same and I sighed to how at home I felt. It was so strange too. For the first time ever, I wasn't pushing Sam away, and honestly, I really didn't want to.

EMIPOV

It was so strange what I was feeling. For the last couple of days, I couldn't stop thinking about him, and that was nerve-wrecking. He was younger than me. I was a woman, being about twenty-five, and he, Embry Call, was all I could ever think about. It was frustrating as hell too because sure, he was legal, but damn.

I had just made some cupcakes that were in the oven when there was a knock at the door. I grumbled, wiping the flour off onto my apron and I walked to the front door. When I opened it, I gasped when I saw him.

He was just wearing shorts and a lopsided smile on his face.

"Uh… Embry, what are you doing here?"

Embry looked at me with a grin as he stepped forward, towering over at least six feet. Goodness!

"I was just out for a run when I smelled something. You… You cook?"

I looked down at his feet, which were bare, and I bit my lip. Damn, he even had big feet, and I was shocked to the dirty thoughts that entered my mind. Had it really been so long that I had sex that I was wildly guessing that Embry was quite endowed? I rolled my eyes to the thought and then I looked at him where he was grinning like a schoolboy.

"I just put some chocolate cupcakes in the oven and –"

"Are you going to share?" he gasped as the aroma filled my nostrils and I stared at him where I bit my lip.

"I could share but –"

"Aw, Emily," he grinned as he stepped a little closer, pushing my chin up to look at me. "I haven't eaten much and Leah's always bragging about how good your cupcakes and your chicken is to everyone! Please?"

"Damn Leah," I muttered under my breath as I stepped aside. "Come in, but you better not track any dirty over the carpet or I'll kill you."

Embry huffed as he walked inside. "Yeah… right."

SPOV

Oh damn. Damnit all to hell. Leah looked so good in my shirt and a pair of my old boxers that didn't fit me anywhere as her panties and bra were drying, while her dress was hanging in the closet to air dry. I never knew that I could be so pleased to seeing Leah like that, but I really was. She looked so sexy just standing there at the stove, stirring the pot. She had decided to make us some soup since we had been dripping wet when we came inside.

"Wow," I whispered with a huge smile on my face as I stared over at her.

Leah laughed as she shook her head when she looked over at me and her eyes twinkled. "I take it that you like what you see, Sam."

"How can I not like what I see, Leah? You're in one of my shirts, looking sexy as hell," I growled low in my throat as I slipped behind her, sliding my arms around her waist. "You look amazing."

Leah giggled as she tilted her head to the side and she looked at me. "So… Quil just called me and he's saying that Embry… well, he imprinted, Sam."

My eyes widen and then I remembered what Jacob had told me the other day. "It's your cousin, right? He imprinted on Emily, didn't he?"

"Yeah," Leah said with a raised eyebrow as she simmered the heat on the pot. "I didn't tell you that, though. How did you know that?"

I chuckled as I looked over at her with a shake of my head. "Jacob called me the other day after she showed up at his place to help him cook dinner for Bella. It's about time, though. That boy has been chasing every girl with long legs and breasts for so long."

When I heard her beautiful laugh, I grinned as I stroked her shoulder, and I stepped beside her, just watching her. I could stand here and just watch her in the kitchen. From what Leah had told me, Emily had taught Leah how to cook, and I was very thankful for that. Although, it didn't bother me if Leah could cook or not because that's not why I loved her. No, it was far much more than her cooking habits. Although, that was the benefit factor the more I thought about it.

"So, I want to try to take you out again, Leah."

When I saw her frown, I knew what she was thinking, and I grabbed her arm.

"I'm sorry about earlier, Sam. I am just so afraid. I know we imprinted on each other but –"

"No, baby, it's going to last this time. There would be no reason to not be without you. You're what holds me to this ground. I imprinted on you and you're my sole reason for wanting to exist," I explained as I turned her towards me after she turned the burner off to the stove. "You know I'm right."

"I know that… but it's just hard. You really are special towards me," she whispered as she blinked the tears away and she looked up into my eyes. "I think you're one of a kind and mine, Sam. I like that this imprint happened. If it didn't, I would probably be so stubborn, trying to run away from you."

I grasped her hands, smiling at her, and I leaned down, kissing her fingertips. I loved Leah and I intended to show her just how much she meant to me. There was no rush, though. Leah was my world and I know as quiet as it was now, it was still going to be a bumpy ride.

"So, maybe I can take you on another picnic, but maybe tonight I can cook for you?" I suggested towards her as she looked over at me with a raised eyebrow.

"Y-You can cook?" she teased. "You do have a fire extinguisher, right?"

"Hey!"

Leah laughed as she rested her body against mine and I knew without a doubt that things were going to be good. I had to admit that I was pretty much the luckiest guy ever. I had been fighting to have Leah back in my life, but she would always turn me down over and over again. This was a pretty good time for me.

As I watched her tend to our soup, I left the kitchen to go to the living room, turning the television on, and I smiled. The thought of Leah moving in here sounded really good. Even though I didn't want to rush things, it just seemed like she would be spending more time with me here than her own place. I grinned at the thought of having her here with me every, single day.

"What's got you smiling?"

I turned my head to see her standing behind me. "Nothin'… well, you."

"Oh my God! Why? Why are you even thinking about me for?"

I laughed as I shook my head. It was definitely going to be interesting and I stared over at her like she was absolutely crazy.

"Are you serious? I mean…Leah, you are beautiful in more ways than one."

When I saw the light pink of her cheeks, I grinned, and I pulled her close to me, dipping my head down for another kiss. After a few moments of my tongue teasing hers and nibbling at her bottom lip, I finally pulled away.

"So, can I eat now? I'm starving, Leah…"
