DISCLAIMER- I do not own anything related to Twilight.
This IS a spin-off from Alpha's Imprint. You must read chapters 1-6 of that story to understand this. It's an alternate future based on if Seth's imprint was a full soulmate imprint instead of a familial/protector imprint.
I didn't want to be home while Leah and Mom argued again about her going to an out-of-state university, so I decided to head over to Sam's hoping I could just hang out there until the pack meeting. I could hear two voices and I knew it was Sam and Bella talking about something as I came up to his house eating my chips.
I was glad Bella was here on the reservation. There was just something that made me feel so incredibly relieved about it. Even the thought of her being with the Cullens made chills run through my veins and definitely not in a good way.
I walked through the doorway and saw Sam on the couch with Bella beside him but kept my focus on Sam while I asked him if I could chill until the meeting.
"You know you're always welcome here." Sam replied. I smiled appreciatively and looked over at Bella.
The moment my eyes met hers, the entire world fell away. Everything but her. I felt my whole existence tie itself to her with the strongest of bonds as I watched glimpses of what I could only imagine was our future play out in front of my eyes. Everything of mine was hers. Every part of myself. I'd do anything she asked, be anything she wanted.
"Whoa," I spoke after a what felt like forever. "That was a rush."
After I snapped out of my daze, my attention sharply turned to Sam in fear. He was watching me like a hawk and I gulped with nervousness.
I just imprinted… on my alpha's imprint.
"Sam, what just happened?" I heard Bella ask him worriedly. Sam looked at her before looking back at me.
"Show me." Sam ordered, standing up immediately and walking outside. I followed without question, but I was nervous. Like crazy, insane, I'm going to die nervous.
When we got far enough away from the house, we both phased. I was super extremely excited to hear that no one else was phased in but Sam. I needed this to be a private conversation.
"Show me exactly what happened." Sam said into the pack mind.
I took a deep breath and focused on everything that had just occurred. I closed my eyes and whimpered, waiting for some type of bad reaction.
It was the strangest thing. My wolf could feel Sam's imprint on Bella. He was still my alpha, but he was my imprint's other imprint. Now that sounded weird to even think about.
The pack mind was silent and that was creeping me out even more than the reaction I had been waiting for. Anger, outrage, something of the sort. Instead I only heard two words.
"Phase out." Sam ordered.
I did as he said. I phased out and pulled my shorts back on, even more terrified now because we were both human. Maybe I should say something?
"It couldn't have been helped." Sam cut me off. I looked at him with curiosity. "You have no control over who you imprint on. I didn't, Jared didn't, Paul didn't. The spirits work in some pretty strange and crazy ways. I don't know why it took so long for me to imprint on Bella, and I don't know why you have now too. There must be a good explanation for things."
"What kind of explanation?" I questioned him quietly, extremely curious what reason there could possibly be.
"Maybe Bella needs us both for different reasons. I truly don't know, Seth. Your imprint is the exact same as mine." Sam told me, rubbing his hand down his face as we stood there.
"You're not going to, I don't know, kill me, are you?" I asked him worriedly as I grimaced, waiting for his response.
"What? No, Seth. I'm not going to kill you. I'm shocked and worried what Bella's going to think, but I'm not angry with you. Like I said, you had no control over it. An imprint is a gift from the spirits, our other half." He replied making me let out a breath of relief.
"But Bella's already with you. Not to mention, I'm only 16. I don't know how this is going to work. Please tell me you have some sort of idea?" I nearly begged him. I worried about how she was going to react, what she'd want from me.
"I don't know either. You already know you'd be anything she wants you to be, just like I do. Yes, she chose to be with me in a romantic way. Your imprint is the same as mine, Seth. There's no difference. Everything is up to Bella so there's a chance she might want the same from you." Sam's words shocked me.
I hadn't considered that she may actually choose what he suggested rather than ask me to be a friend or brother. Now that I actually let myself think about it, I knew that was what I wanted, but like Sam said, everything would be up to her. I knew that she was it for me no matter what she requested of me, but I would be anything she wanted and live happily knowing that she was happy.
"Come on, we need to go tell her. I can feel her worry." Sam said, snapping me out of my daze. I could feel it too. I swallowed nervously and nodded to him, following him back inside.
I hesitated as I walked over the threshold. Bella was standing there waiting for us. Sam walked over to her and she looked between him and me with worry.
"Seth." Sam motioned his head for me to come over. I breathed deeply and walked over to my new imprint and her other imprint.
I wanted so desperately to reach out and touch her, like my wolf needed that reassurance or maybe it was comfort, knowing that she was physically there with me. I kept my short distance though. I didn't want to make this any worse than it was already going to be. She looked up at me with those beautiful brown doe eyes and I felt myself reliving the imprint all over again.
"Did you—did you imprint on me?" She asked, coming right out of the gates with it.
"Um – yes?" I responded hesitantly with a 'please don't hate me' face. Her eyes widened and she looked over at Sam.
"Sam?" She questioned. He nodded in response.
"Um, wow, okay, so, uh, what happens next?" She asked the both of us. I looked to Sam to answer.
"Whatever happens next is completely your decision Bella. You don't even have to figure it out right now." Sam explained to her.
"So Seth's imprint is—"
"Exactly the same as mine. A full imprint." Sam completed for her.
Her expression was completely unreadable as I looked between her and Sam. She'd reached out and grabbed his arm in what looked like a subconscious motion. They were already so close…
"I'm just going to, uh, leave the two of you to talk about things." I cleared my throat as I turned to walk back out the door. I didn't even make it one step before I felt a small hand grasp mine.
I looked back at Bella. "You're staying." It wasn't a question. It was a command. One I was more than happy to oblige.
A/N- Like I said, this is a spin-off alternative to Alpha's imprint. This will be a Sam/Bella/Seth story (no slash). It will tentatively follow the same timeline as alpha's imprint with different outcomes due to different circumstances. I've never attempted anything like this so bear with me while I figure it out. I couldn't let this opportunity pass up. I've wanted to do a Sam/Bella/Seth story for a while and with WeasleyTwins07 encouragement, I chose to go this route with it.
