(A/N: This is the last chapter and I figured it would be fun to end it with some short and sweet, cute, fluff! Enjoy!)
"There now, steady love
So few come and don't go
Will you won't you
Be the one I always know
When I'm losing control
The city spins around
You're the only one
Who knows you slow it down"-The Fray, Look after You
Leah and I don't say anything, feeling that the silence is enough. She is curled up in my arms, and my head rests on hers, when Seth knocks on the door.
"Go away, Seth," Leah mumbles.
"The rest of the pack is here," Seth says. "They want to make sure you're all right."
"I'm fine," Leah says, sounding irritated.
"C'mon, Leah," Seth says, bursting into the room. His face turns bright red when he sees me.
"Oh," he says quietly. "I didn't know you were still here, Jake. Sorry."
"It's fine, Seth," I assure him. "But I don't think Leah's really up for company right now. Could you tell the pack to come back later?"
"Sure, I guess," Seth shrugs as he walks out of the room.
"Thank you," Leah says quietly.
I stroke her hair and reply, "No problem. That'll be thirty bucks, thank you very much."
Leah grins up at me. "How about I pay you back in a different way?" she asks, tackling me as her mouth finds mine.
"Fine with me," I agree, kissing her neck.
After a few minutes of kissing as quietly as possible (Hey, we can't exactly kick Seth out of his house) Leah is curled back in my arms, feeling to me more like a newborn kitten and less like a giant wolf.
"I never thought I would love you, Leah Clearwater," I admit.
"Well, Jacob Black, I never thought I would love you."
"Remind me to thank Paul for that dare he gave you yesterday," I say.
"Speaking of thanking people, you never thanked me for saving your life."
"Technically," Leah points out, "You didn't save my life. Carlisle saved my life."
"Yeah, but I was the one who got Carlisle to come save you. And you're forgetting all the blood I donated to save you."
"Fine. Thank you for saving my life, Jake."
"I was thinking more along the lines of a different kind of thank you," I say, grinning at her and gently tracing her lips with my fingers.
Leah returns the grin and says, "Let me go kick Seth out of the house first."
She climbs out of the bed and goes to find Seth.
From Leah's room, I hear a conversation that goes something like this:
"But Leah…this is my house, too, you know."
"I don't care. Out."
"Ok, fine, Leah, you don't have to be so grumpy about it."
I try to hide a laugh that comes out as a snort. 'Grumpy' isn't the word I would pick to describe Leah.
I hear the front door slam as Seth leaves the house, and then Leah comes back into the room.
"Now," she whispers. "Where were we?"
"I think we were about here," I say, pulling her closer to me and kissing her.
The kiss is like our first one, but without the pack watching us.
This kiss is like our first one, the one that changed our lives forever.
(A/N: Thank you to all my reviewers, who are totally awesome. I never expected to get so many reviews for this, especially because now that I look at earlier chapters, it's so OOC it makes me cringe to read it. As for this chapter, I could say what happens next, but this fic is rated T, and I really can't write that kind of stuff very well. Also, I'm not sure I like the last couple of sentences. What do you guys think? Thanks so much again for all your fabulous reviews. I hope you will continue to read and review more of my stories.)
