A/N: I wanted to thank everybody who has left a review, favorited me, my story, or added to alerts. Thank you for your patience. I've been busy working on a different story for another fandom. Must go where the muse wants. I promise though that I will always finish a story, it may take me a while to update sometimes, but I never leave a story unfinished. That being said, happy reading, hope ya'll enjoy this update.
When we finally returned to the res and Sam's house, we found Sam waiting on the porch. He reeked of sex and Leah to us wolves. I looked at him and Sam gave me a nod to the unspoken question, his imprint with Emily would be broken, I could tell it wasn't because he was here instead of with Leah still. After we unloaded the food and helped to put it away, I took Ruth back to my place.
We walked in to find Charlie and my old man watching a game and drinking beer, typical behavior for the two. I sat down on one end of the couch and pulled Ruth onto my lap; she curled up against my chest and rested her head on my shoulder. I loved holding her close, I couldn't understand how Embry had been able to keep his imprint on Bella hidden for so long, how he had been able to not go crazy because he couldn't touch her and hold her like this. I sighed in contentment.
"You have a good day?" Dad asked while the game was on break.
"It was shopping pops … what do you think?"
"I'll take that as a no." Charlie laughed.
"Hey dad, you still get emails every time the pack credit card is used right?" I asked quietly remembering the reaction Emily had.
"Yeah why?" Dad asked.
"Do you actually pay attention to what was purchased?" I asked.
"No … I usually just copy down the amounts so I can keep track of the expensive. Why? What's on your mind son?" Dad asked clicking the TV off.
Charlie leaned forward waiting my answer, he had gone cop mode. "I think Emily has been using it for things other than pack expenses."
"What makes you say that Jake?" Charlie asked.
"Quil imprinted on the cashier at the store and she wrote her number on the back of the receipt. Emily was giving him a hard time about needed the receipt because she had to keep track of the expenses. When I told her that you got an email every time the card was used, she blanched, her heart rate increased and she started sweating. She's hiding something. She's been using pack money, tribal money for personal reasons I just know it. I just don't know what. Her and Sam's furniture is shitty, they both drive beat up pieces of crap, she dresses like an old lady so she ain't been buying clothes. I don't know what she could be spending it on or how much she's spent." I explained.
Dad sat quietly in his chair, a serious look on his face. "Old man go get my laptop from my bedroom will you."
Charlie groaned as he got to his feet and went into dad's room. He came back quickly and handed the computer to my old man. I watched as dad quickly pulled up the credit card account and looked over the expenses.
"Hmmm… It looks like she's been getting money out of the ATM, twenty here, fifty there, an hundred, two hundred… the amounts have gone up every time as had the frequency. It appears she has been doing this for months. It started out as maybe twenty dollars in a month period, now she is taking out almost three hundred dollars every couple of days. What in the world is she using that much money on? She's not on drugs is she? You wolves would be able to tell that." Dad asked looking up at me.
"No she isn't on drugs, she's not drinking, or anything like that. She never goes anywhere without one of us or Sam … at least I thought she didn't. If she is making that many trips to the ATM, she is doing it on her own." I explained.
"Does she ever come home smelling different or of smelling like another man?" Charlie asked.
"No, she usually comes home smelling like muffins. Course she always smells like muffins. She is never gone long … she is always at the house whenever any of us drop by and we drop by numerous times throughout the day. She does seem to spend a lot of time on the computer when she isn't cooking." I said.
"Do you think she's been getting on porn sites old man?" Dad asked grinning.
Charlie laughed. "I'll tell you what. If she is getting that much cash out, she might be putting it into her bank account. I'll go down to the bank and see if they'll let me look at her account. I should be able to tell if she is putting the money in there and if she is what she has been spending it on if she is spending it. She might just be padding her account."
"Will they let you do that without a warrant Charlie?" I asked.
"Technically? No … it's illegal but this is Forks we are talking about and I'm the chief of police. If I say I need to see an account they let me see it whether I have a warrant or not. Granted anything I find without a warrant can't be used in court but this wouldn't be going to court would it?" Charlie explained.
"No … you get what evidence you can Charlie and Emily will be brought before the tribal council. If she is found guilty she will have to pay back the money and will most likely be banished from the res. She's not Quileute so really she doesn't belong here anyway; she's only here because of Sam." Dad said.
"What would happen to Sam if Emily was kicked out?" Charlie asked.
"Nothing … he is in the process of breaking his imprint on her. We will hold the council meeting until after he has done that, assuming you find evidence against her." Dad explained.
"I'll go by there first thing tomorrow." Charlie stated.
Ruth's soft snores reached my ear. "I better be getting her home. I'll be back late, I've got patrol tonight." I said standing up with Ruth in my arms.
"Later Jake." Charlie called out as he went towards the kitchen to get more beer.
"Behave." Dad said with a wink towards me.
I just grinned as I stepped out of my house. I carried my girl the few blocks to her house. After explaining to her mother why I was carrying her, she let me in and showed me to Ruth's room. I laid her down and kissed her forehead before slipping out of her room and then the house. I walked into the woods and stripped before phasing to take my patrol. I was hit with images of Sam and Leah together.
"Jesus Leah … can't you put a cap on that shit. I don't want to see it." I whined.
"Shut up pup … pay attention you might learn something. Your imprint will thank you." Leah sassed.
I couldn't help the wolfish smile that appeared. That hadn't been Leah's normal bitchiness but the playfulness that I had heard so much about but had never actually seen. "Wow you finally getting some has mellowed you out."
"Fuck off Black." Leah grumbled before phasing out and leaving me to my thoughts.
I ran my patrol and then returned to Ruth's house. I curled up in the woods outside her house, her window visible to my wolf eyes. I just felt the need to be close to her. I laid my head on my large paws and drifted off to sleep.
