After a minute or two, Jacob pulled away. He looked at me with those chocolate brown eyes
that I adored, and he smiled. Not any of his other types of smiles. Like the "I told you
so" smile, and the "You're amusing me" smile, and the oh-so original "I really hate what's
going on but I'm going to smile like nothing's even wrong" smile. He smiled my
smile. The smile where he grinned from ear to ear, and where he was smiling for no other
reason other then he was completely happy.
"So, that was pretty intense." he said, ruffling his hair and sitting down on the nearby
I sat down next to him and lightly punched him in his muscular arm. "Intense?" I asked.
He dramatically rubbed his arm, as if I inflicted pain. "Well, it was." He put his arm
around me and pulled me closer to him.
I sighed. "What am I supposed to do now?"
"What do you mean?" He looked down at me.
"You know what I mean. How can I tell Edward?" Tears filled my eyes.
"Oh god." Jacob's face became panicked.
"Oh god, what?" I asked, jumping up off the rock.
"You don't think Edward will go insane and try to-" I cut him off.
"He wouldn't do that! He said if I ever chose you he'd let it be. Even though it would
kill him inside." I said, biting my lip.
"Where is he? Right now?" Jacob stood up.
"At his house I think." I said..
"Go inside. I'll call Embry and Paul to watch you." he said, pushing me lightly in the
direction of his house.
"Jake," I said. "You don't need to worry. I think if I calmly talk to Edward there won't
be an issue."
"Yeah right. I wouldn't trust that bloodsucker alone with you for even a minute." he spat
on the ground.
"Jake! I know him way better then you do. He would never hurt me. He doesn't even have it
in him to even hurt a fly." I said.
"I don't care. We need to take precaution. For all we know, all those Cullens might be
seeking revenge. Doesn't the spiky haired one see futures? Doesn't she know you didn't
choose Edward by now?" he grabbed me and started pulling me towards the house.
"She can't see anything the wolves are involved in, Jake." I said as I was pushed inside.
He picked up the old black phone that was on the counter in the kitchen and began dialing
"Jake, stop it." I said trying to grab the phone out of his hand.
He picked me up and set me down on the chair next to him. "Stay." he commanded.
I sighed. There was no winning with him. "You're just creating a new problem! Put the
phone down, don't tell anyone to watch me I'm not a four year old. And I'll go over to the
Cullen's tonight and tell him." I bit the inside of my cheek. That was going to be so hard
"You honestly think I'd ever let you do that?" he chuckled sarcastically.
"You can stay outside." I said.
He considered the idea. "The outside of the room or the house?"
"The room." I said.
"Deal." he said.
