He did that smirk that makes my heart flutter in a weird way I had never experiencedwith anybody but him. I ,of course, knew that he had imprinted on me and we would betogether one day...if I wanted. Just recently had I started getting romantic feelings of him,Dreaming of him, and watching his muscles under his beautiful russet skin twitch whenhe moved his arm. I had no idea how to express what I was feeling. Being perfectlyhonest
had no idea what I was feeling or what it meant. Whatever it was, Jacob didn'tseem ready for it. He hadn't even took notice."Ness?" He asked stepping closer with a concerned look on his face causing me to snapout of it. I looked up to him and he carried on "Are you ready to go?"
We pulled up to Billy's house, having to park in the front yard there were so many carsthere. Jacob got out and was opening my door before I could even move. He offered mehis hand and I smiled happily taking it. This was normal for us, we hugged, we heldhands, we even occasionally sleep in the same bed even though it was rare now that I wasolder and it made my family uncomfortable. I really didn't feel like doing this, I just wantto be with my Jacob. This makes him happy so I can't complain.We entered the house and a "hey" errupted from everybody. I felt an arm wraparound my neck that I instantly recognized as Leah Clearwater, I let go of Jake's hand tohug her back. It took a few years to make Leah like me but ever since then she consideredme her best friend even though we didn't hang out by ourselves or talk that often. She hadconfided in me about her depressions when she hadn't to anybody else. She let me gowith a small smile. Jacob and I locked hands again for me to only be pulled away byanother arm around my waist this time."Ness!" Seth exclaimed hugging me tightly to him. I tugged on my hand that Jake washolding but he didn't seem notice so I hugged Seth one-armed. The hug lasted for quiet awhile before somebody cleared their throat and he released me. Jacob changed fromholding my hand to wrapping his arm around me. I looked up at him confused and hegave me a friendly smile. Hey, I'm not complaining.He pulled me into the living room which was less crowded and thar is where wefound Billy, Quil, Paul and Embry. I was careful to avoid Paul's eyes. No matter what Idid I couldn't get him to like me. Opposite to his wife and Jacob's sister Rachel wholoved me. Beside Quil was ten year old Claire who came flying towards me as soon asshe layed eyes on me. I knelt down and hugged her gently. "Nene come sit with me anduncle Quil!" She said tugging at my hand. I pulled away from Jacob to go sit besideQuil's feet to play with her and Jacob sat in the recliner beside his dad's wheelchair.
