Wolf's Cry

Chapter 3: Don't Forget We've Got Unfinished Business


Jacob's POV

There was a sudden and abrupt knock on my tiny window of my bedroom. I knew it couldn't be anyone from the pack because they would have just walked into the house regardless of the time. So I clumsily got over of my small bed and lumbered over to the window. I peered out the window and yelped in surprise.

There standing directly in front of me looking as cute as ever was Nikki. She had an impish look on her face and had proped her elbow on my window sill with her head on her hand. She smiled at me and waved. I waved back dumbstruck at what she was doing here at this time of night or even how she got her. Not that I was complaining of course.

'Open the window.' she mouthed tapping on the glass with her long nails. I nodded and opened the window wide.

"Hey! Did you know you're a really hard sleeper? I was out there for like an hour." she grinned.

"Ho-How..wha-..wh-..." I stutter trying to sort through my jumbled mind. She laughed beautifully.

"I'll answer your questions, once you figure them out that it, but can I come in. It's like freezing out here." she said smiling at me helplessly. Oh God, I didn't even notice that it was probably 10 degrees outside.

"Oh. Yeah. Sorry. Come in. Here I'll help you." I smiled lifting her their the window easily. She blushed and hugged herself closer to me.

"I guess it's true what they say about werewolves being extremely warm." she beamed, laughing nervously. I smiled down at her and sat down on the floor with my back up against the wall. Nikki curled up in my lap and snuggled into my chest.

"You're really that cold?" I said wrapping my arms around her.

"I guess you could say that." she mumbled into my chest.

I laughed and we sat in silence for a while just listening to each other breath. It was nice. I liked being around Nikki. It was calming and refreshing. She was so unexpected. So wonderful. So funny. So...perfect. I smiled at the thought.

"So are still wondering why the hell I'm here?" she asked quietly.

"A little, but if you don't want to tell me that's fine." I said, content with just holding her here.

"Well, really it's not that interesting. I just..I don't know, couldn't sleep. All I wanted to do is talk with you. So being the impulsive person I am I walked down here and sat by your window for an hour trying to wake you up." she laughed.

I chuckled and moved a piece of her hair out of her eyes. She smiled at me and gave me a little wink before laying her head back on my chest.

"You do know there is such a thing as a telephone." I laughed.

"Well that was too practical." she argued. I rolled my eyes and continued on to my next question.

"How did you know where I live though? Not that I'm complaining or anything." I said.

"Well. I guess you could say I figured it out through Sam." she concluded.

"Sorry if I seem like a stalker though." she said holding up her small hand in defence.

I smiled and kissed the top of her hand lacing her fingers in mine.

"It's perfectly fine." I laughed.

"Good." she said happily.

"So what fun things are there to do in La Push at...4 in the morning?" she asked checking her phone for the time.

"Well there not that much actually. But if you want we can go for a walk some where." I offered.

"Sure! But first do you have a coat or something so I don't freeze to death." she laughed.

" I'm sure I do somewhere. Wait here OK? And don't make a noise my dad might wake up and I don't feel like having to explain why I have a gorgeous girl in my room." I smiled.

"OK. But when you get back I'd like you to tell me where this 'gorgeous girl' is." she said with fake anger. I laughed and rolled my eyes at her.

I quickly headed into our cluttered hall closet and rummaged threw it until I found an my old winter parka that I had before I changed. I quietly headed into my room closed the door. I looked around the room for Nikki but she was no where to be seen.

"Nikki?" I whispered.

"Yup!" I heard her squeak in the direction of my closet.

"What are you doing in there?" I laughed, putting my coat around her shoulders. She smiled at my gratefully and slipped into it. It was huge on her but I couldn't help thinking how adorable she looked in it.

"I wanted to see what you clothes looked like. Plus if your dad came in all I'd have to do is run in here." she smiled happily.

"Come on let's go. Before you make up anymore crazy theories." I said rolling my eyes at her.

"It wasn't crazy." she grumbled with this tempting little pout on her lips.

I grabbed her hand and we quickly and quietly slid out of my room and out the front door.

"So," I said after we go out of my house. " Have you ever rode a motorcycle?"

"No..? Why?" She asked suspiciously. I smiled wolfishly at her and pulled her towards the garage.

I lead her out to the garage and grinned when I saw her expression of my bike.

"Did you build this?" she asked.

"Yup." I smiled proudly. "You wanna take it out for a spin?" I asked.

"Yeah!" she yelled excitedly.

I laughed and handed her a helmet and put mine on as well. I kicked it on and the bike roared to life.

"You tell me not to be loud." Nikki muttered in my ear. I laughed and winked at her.

"Hold on tight." I said.

The bike roared out of the garage and we were speeding along the quiet streets of La Push. I showed her all the site and the best places to cliff dive. I showed her where my best friends and I would hang out sometimes. I also showed her where the rest of the pack lived as long as she promised not to stalk them to. She grinned and agreed saying that I was the only one she wanted to stalk. I drove her around Forks too, showing her the high school and all the local things. When we finally got back to my house it was around 7 in the morning and I could tell Nikki was tired.

"I should probably take you home. You look beat." I said sadly brushing the back of my hand across her face.

"I guess." she sighed.

She gave me directions to her house and all too soon we were at her small two story yellow house.

"So..umm..I'll see you tomorrow?" I asked her hopefully.

"Yeah," she grinned. "Just call." she smiled.

We stood there awkwardly for a moment just staring at each other, waiting for someone to make the first move.

"So, bye. I guess." I finally said looking at her.

"Yeah. Bye." she said.

I turned to leave and then all the sudden Nikki call my name.

"Ye-mmff" I mumbled as her lips pressed against mine quickly.

As soon as it started it stopped at Nikki was walking up to her house. I stood there trying to figure out what the hell just happened.

"Later Jakey!" she giggled, climbing up the side her house on the ivy that grew there.

"Goodbye Nikki!" I laughed, getting on my bike and speeding off.

Tomorrow I was determined to settle the score between Nikki and I. I grinned at the thought as I silently slipped into my house.


I don't own. :D
