So this is the second chapter of my story. I'd just like to dedicate this chapter to AnnaMollyPR and Cookiere4 for being my first reviewers. Thanks so much guys!
English: Twilight is not mine.
Filipino: Hindi sa akin ang Twilight.
I noticed Sam staring at me as I walked to the edge of the cliff. Now I know it seems ridiculous, but I've had the biggest crush on Sam since I was like, 5 or something. When I was still in middle school, I used to attach his last name to mine whenever I would answer a test. I know, desperate right? I thought I actually had a chance with him, when he met Emily. Now don't get me wrong, I love Em, heck, I love her more than I love Seth, but it still hurt when Sam chose her over me. So when I saw him staring at me, I immediately jumped to conclusions.
He's staring at me. Does he like me or something?
No! Stupid Leah! He's in love with EMILY, you know, your second cousin?
Then why is he staring at me?
He's tired from the journey, or he misses Emily, you two DO look alike.
We're the same person dummy.
After that slightly disturbing conversation with myself, I started to take off my shirt. I heard a gasp come from behind me, but when I looked back, I saw Sam talking with Jared. Even though he seemed agitated, I couldn't help but notice how flawless he still was.
His black hair fell over his eyes, and though it was supposed to look messy, it wasn't, it was perfect. He developed his muscles since I last saw him. He also grew taller, well, taller is a bit of an understatement, he was freaking gigantic! I didn't fail to notice that he was shirtless, and that he had this delicious six-pack I wanted to run my hands on.
Before I could stop my ogle-fest, he turned his head and smiled at me. His smile left me absolutely breathless. He started walking forward, all the while holding my gaze. He finally dropped down his eyes and stood up straighter, which made me think of him as a sort-of leader.
"Everybody ready to jump?" Jacob then spoke,
"No shit Sherlock. How about we make this interesting?" he had an evil smile on his face. Oh no, that means,
"A BET!!!!!" Jacob's "homies" said in unison. We all sighed and waited to hear what the bet was.
"Okay, here's the bet," said Jacob, "whoever jumps the highest and with the best tricks wins 10 bucks from all of us" huh, seemed easy enough. Everyone agreed and we decided to have Paul and Sam as our impartial judges. We fell into line with Jacob in front.
Jacob ran forward and jumped up, we all watched him soar down and do a back flip before hitting the water. I gotta say, that was impressive. Embry was next, doing the same thing but he had a higher jump, which Jacob didn't fail to notice and he sulked at the back, getting his wallet. Quil looked a bit intimidated by Embry's jumped so he went for tricks instead of height. Quil's jump was about the same height as Jacob's, but unlike the first two, he did a 360° turn, which got very disgruntled sounding noises from them. Jared's jump was a little bland, and I am being nice. He looked like he was diving, and nothing more. Seth quit after Jacob's jump so now it was my turn. I took a deep breath and ran forward, my jump was high enough, but it was really my tricks that rocked. I bunched up into a little ball and started making 1….2…..3 turns in the air before finally sailing down gracefully into the water.
When I went back up to the cliff, I had a smirk on my face and stuck my hand out. Jacob, Embry, Quil, Seth, Jared, Paul and Sam unwillingly gave me 10 dollars each. I had a triumphant smile on my face and started counting my money but then Embry HAD to ask.
"Why'd Leah get the money? I could've done that." I turned toward him and replied,
"Oh yeah? I wanna see you do it." He paled considerably and gave in with a sigh.
"I wish you weren't right all the time Leah." I smirked and said,
"It comes with being a girl." I notice the time and called out to Seth,
"Hey! I'm gonna go visit Emily before dinner. Is it okay if you hitch a ride?" Seth smiled, I swear that kid is always smiling, and said
"Sure Lee, tell Em hi for me." I nodded and got on my 2010 Harley Davidson CVO Soft tail Convertible and sped off.
I was exhausted from the trip.
I would've loved to go to the cliffs, but since we left right after school, I needed to unwind for a bit. I went into Rebecca Black's room, where Billy said I could rest until Leah or Aunt Sue picked me up. I sighed, thinking about, well Sam, of course, and Leah. I see how they interact with each other and ,although it pains me to say this, they look perfect for each other. Even though lots of my friends say Sam and I look good together, they have never met Leah. Leah was the pure incarnation of beauty. Even though she told me I was just as beautiful, if not more, I can't help but think of the scar on my back. It was an s- shaped thing on my back which stretched from my left hip to my right. Sam left it there by accident when he shifted once. He says he's so ashamed of himself, but I always say it's okay.
*Sigh* Sam. I remember the talk we had on imprinting a few nights ago…..
"Oh, and there's this other thing too." Sam looked so nervous, like I was going to hit him or something after he told me.
"Tell me." I wanted Sam to know he could tell me anything. I smiled at him and he smiled back for a moment before taking a deep breath.
"Well you see, Jared, one of my pack mates, imprinted on a girl named Kim Connweller." I remember looking confused then remembering what one of my friends told me.
"Hey, doesn't imprint mean you pee on something or someone?" my nose wrinkling in disgust. I wouldn't want any guy, even Sam, to pee on me.
He chuckled and quickly banished the thought.
"Of course not Em. Imprinting is like, well, finding your soul mate. It's like love at first sight, but deeper." I remember laughing at that and Sam frowned at me. I suddenly sobered up and said,
"Oh, you were serious." He merely nodded his head. A thought came to me and I asked,
"Did you imprint on me Sam?" he sighed, as if he knew I was going to ask. He looked at me, sadness in his eyes, and his answer shook my world.
That one little word, a word that only consists of 2 letters, made me more afraid than anything in my entire life.
I hope he doesn't imprint on this trip.
How wrong is Emily! :) Anyway, please, review. :)
