Never done that before

A/N:: This is my first Twilight Fanfic and I know my cousin (he hates everything Twilight with a passion) will probably disown me for daring to write a fanfic about it lol. It revolves around a Jacob x OC pairing. I always liked Jacob's character and just wanted to do a story with him. This is starting off T but will end up M. You've been warned. I hope you like it

{Takes place after New Moon. Victoria hasn't been found yet and Edward wants to make sure she has been dealt with before he will turn Bella (because it would leave Charlie vulnerable) and has convinced Bella to attend college in the meanwhile.}

Twilight and all it's characters belong to Stephenie Meyer, I wouldn't be living in a cramped apartment if they were mine. The OC is all mine.

"Jacob, when are you going to fix your car, bro? I'm tired of being your chauffeur," Quil wondered, to which Embry nodded in agreement. He had been called a few times for a ride this past week also.

"If you haven't noticed, I've been a little busy lately." Jacob had a lot on his plate recently. He was attended college part time, patrolling the woods at night, trying to fulfill his duties as second in command of the pack and trying to spend time with his best friend, who he was not-so-secretly in love with, plus now with his car breaking down, he had to take a part-time job to afford to repair it.

"Well if you spend less time trying to win over Vampire girl, you'll have a little more time to spend on your car, not to mention your family."

"Shut it, Quil," Jacob rounded on him.

"Don't be like that, Jake." Embry tried defending Quil but at the same time not piss off Jacob. "He just means that, we never get to hang out with you anymore. We only see you during patrols or if we're driving you somewhere and you haven't been to Emily's in a while. You spend all your free time hanging with her."

Jacob said nothing. He knew they were right, he had been neglecting his friends… his brothers. He just didn't know how to fix it without completely losing what little time he had with Bella. He was now on his way to Peninsula College in Port Angeles to meet Bella so they can hang out, just the two of them.

"I know I'm gonna sound like a major asshole," Quil continued, "but, she chose him. She will always choose him. I like Bella, I do. She's like family but I hate how she acts sometimes. I hate that she gives you just enough false hope to keep you around just because she's too selfish to live without you." They had arrived at Jacob's destination and without a word to his two friends, he exited the minivan, slamming the door behind him.

"Tell Bella we said hi," Embry called out as he climbed into the passenger seat Jacob had just vacated. Jacob knew he meant it sincerely but he just waved his hand behind him without turning around as he heard the vehicle drive off. He made his way to the courtyard and sat on the low stone wall he always uses when waiting for her. He reached up to his hair and pulled the band that was holding it into a ponytail out and ran his hand through his hair, rubbing his scalp a little along the way to relive some of his stress.

After a few minutes, he felt someone walk up to him.

"Jacob Black?" The soft voice asked. He looked up too quickly, forgetting it was one of those rare sunny days, and was temporarily blinded by the sun.

"Who's askin'?" he said as he lowered his head, bringing his hand up to rub his eyes.

"I'm Moon Star an-," she began.

"Moon Star?" He asked with disbelief as he tried to blink his eyes repeatedly, willing his vision to return. He heard her sigh before she answered.

"Actually it's Ruby Joy Moon Star." He tried to hold it in but a bark of laughter escaped his lips. "What? I had big time hippies for parents. It was between that and Mary Jane. I'm glad they picked what they did, can you imagine began named after a drug? It's not like anyone would name their kid Heroin so why Mary Jane?" she babbled. "Sorry, I talk too much sometimes. Anyway, I'm a friend of Bella's. She asked me to give this to you."

He reached for what she had blindly, his retinas having not fully recovered, and felt a sheet of folded paper. He unfolded it as the black red spots slowly faded from his sight and began to read it.


I know we had plans today but it's the first sunny day in such a long while.

I called Billy and he said he wasn't even sure you'd be home today so I left this note with a friend.

Edward suggested we go to our spot and relax maybe have a picnic for me and I really wanted to go.

I hope you understand. I'm so sorry to make you drive all the way up here for nothing.

I love you.

Your best friend,


"Crap." This is just great, he thought, I harass my friends into driving me all the way up here and she's off with the leech. "How am I supposed to get home now?" he mumbled to himself. He didn't have money for a cab and he couldn't call Embry or Quil (We don't have cell phones, he thought), which meant he would have to walk until he got to a secluded area, change into a wolf and run home.

"I can give you a ride if you want." He just shook his head as he stared at the letter.

"Nah. I'm not nearby. I'm near Forks."

"Me too."

"I'm in La Push."

"I don't mind giving you a lift." He thought it over. It was a nice offer and he figured he might as well take it. He was too tired to run, even in wolf form.

"That'd be nice." He crumbled the letter up as he stood up and finally looked at her.

In that moment the world drifted away and he came undone. He felt every connection he ever made in his life break like string being easily cut and they tied him instead to the young women in front of him, becoming thicker, stronger and more concrete than anything he had ever experienced in his life.

He stared at the young woman. She contained the body of a grown woman, curvaceous and ample in all the right places, but there was something childlike, pure, about her. Maybe it was the way her wide full lips curved up at the end as if she found the humor in everything. Maybe it was the red carnation tucked haphazardly in her loose unruly thick jet black hair that cascaded down to her hips. Maybe it was the playful glint in her unnaturally bright sea green eyes, which Jacob was almost positive had to be the result of contacts, for he'd never seen that particular shade on anyone before.

The letter fell from his hand as his gravitational pull shifted. The earth no longer tied him to the place where he stood. It was she who held him there now.


"Wow. Aren't you a tall, big, fine drink of water?" She smiled, looking up at him. After a while of silence she spoke again. "Umm. Dude?" She stared at him, her brow creased, as she tried to figure out why he was just looking at her with his mouth slightly open. "Dude? Hello?" She waved her hand in front of his face but he seemed to be mesmerized by her. "I mean, I know I'm hot and all but you don't have to stare." She laughed nervously but he just continued to stare. "You know that was a joke. I was kidding about being hot." No response. "Okay. You're kind of making me a little self-conscience," she said as she patted her hair down and adjusted the book bag on her shoulder.

That seemed to snap him out of it. "Sorry," he mumbled as he shook his head a little. "Sorry."

"It's fine." She gave him a confused look but decided to let it go. "You still want that ride?"

He nodded.

She nodded back and then told him to follow her as she walked to the parking lot. He followed obediently, almost in a daze. He wasn't sure what to do. He was beyond one thousand percent sure he had just imprinted but what should he do about it? There was no imprinting manual, no steps to take. He wasn't sure what his next move should be.

"This is me." She nodded to a black Ford Explorer as she dug her key out of her bag and pressed the unlocking mechanism on the alarm. She threw her bag into the backseat just as he sat in the passenger seat. She looked over at him as she started the car and let out a laugh. He looked like he was about to swallow his knees, his massive frame was doubled over in the seat. "I'm sorry. I haven't had anyone so big in my car before, it's usually just my grandma and she's like four feet eleven on a good day. There's some buttons on the side that should move the seat back and higher."

After he adjusted his seat to a more comfortable position and fastened his seatbelt, she pulled out of the spot and started the drive to Forks. He looked out the window and thought what his next move should be. 'Hey I'm a werewolf and you're my soul mate for life' doesn't seem the way to go. He was at a complete loss and staring at her was not helping. Noticing her long lashes that seemed to curl back and barely skim her eyelids, how her tongue snaked out to moisten her lips while she softly sang along to the radio and how her light olive skin blushed when she noticed him looking at her only seemed to cloud his mind further.

Ruby seemed to sense his need for quiet, his need to think so she rolled her window down, because it had suddenly gotten very warm in the car, and tried to enjoy the nice weather as she drove. If her grandfather was alive he would've smacked her upside her head for offering to drive a strange man home, and such a big, strong looking man at that. She knew he was a freshman in college but he looked to be around twenty-five or twenty-six, not eighteen. He was taller than her by more than a foot and looked like he could pick her up and snap her in half like she was a twig… not that she couldn't protect herself, she had her ways.

Anyway, it wasn't like he was a complete stranger. She knew of him through Bella. Bella had always spoken so well of her dear friend Jacob. A gentle giant, she had called him and he had that vibe about him. Ruby knew just by looking at him that he was a nice guy and she had felt a little sorry for him. Being in love with someone who doesn't love you back must suck. Bella had explained her little problem to Ruby as best as she could but Ruby knew she was leaving some key components out, just like she knew there was something up with her boyfriend, Edward. He wasn't normal, but who was she to say anything, she had weird down to a science.

Once she was in Forks, she turned to Jacob only to find him staring at her again. "Where do you live?" she asked while she was stopped at a red light.

He gave her quick directions to his house and then they drove in silence once again. She could feel his eyes on her and it was starting to get to her. She could feel her body temperature rise under his stare. Maybe he wasn't as in love with Bella as she thought, she thought to herself, because he is seriously checking me out. She fidgeted in her seat and tugged at her peasant skirt desperately trying to remember if she shaved her legs that day.

The fact that he was gorgeous was not helping at all. His deep russet skin was beautiful and when she first saw him she had an uncontrollable urge to run her fingers through his long black locks, pull him to her and kiss the daylights out of him. An urge she never felt before in her life, not even by half.

He began to panic when he saw his house and he still had not come up with his next step. He couldn't believe he couldn't get his brain to concentrate; all he wanted to do was look at her.

"Wow. Nice house." He looked at her, then at his house and then at her again. It wasn't a dump, but she had said that as if she had just laid eyes on The White House. She smiled at his facial expression. "It's red," she said, as if that explained it. "I love all things red, my name is Ruby after all." She turned her attention back to the house. "My grandmother's house is white with blue shutters. She won't let me paint them red instead." Jacob was about to say something but she had pouted because of her lack of red shutters and all thoughts escaped him as he looked at her lips.

He was staring again and she felt the need to gently prod him in the right direction. "So, umm, you're home." He got the hint and jumped out of the car as if his seat had just caught fire, causing him to stumble slightly. She bit her lip to stifle the giggle that wanted to come out. "Well, bye I guess." She smiled at him before driving away.

Jacob wanted to smack himself as he watched her SUV turn a corner. Stupid, stupid, stupid, he called himself as he walked to his house. He didn't ask where she lived, or what her phone number was or anything. He just sat there staring at her. Man, she must think I'm some sort of psycho . Just as he reached his front porch, he heard the sound of a car pulling up.

"Hey, Jacob." He turned quickly, because it was her voice, she had come back. "What's your deal?" she asked as she leaned out her window. "You stare at me the whole drive up her, checking me out, and you don't even ask me for my phone number?" She shook her head, and he thought he had blown it with her for sure but he saw that she was smiling. "You didn't even ask me out. So I was thinking as I was driving away, that maybe I have to make the first move. So… want to go out tonight, like a date?"

She nearly passed out when he smiled at her, it seemed to take up his whole face and transform him. He looked years younger when he smiled. He nodded.

"Ok. Great. I'll be back around six-thirty, seven?" Again he nodded, the smile still firmly in place. "See you then." She turned to start to drive but then thought of something, "Oh and you do know I expect you to actually speak tonight right? I mean I dig the strong silent type but I kind of like to have a conversation too." He nodded at her yet again and she laughed, thinking he was cute as she drove away.

Thank goodness the girl came back and asked him out, he was so afraid it might be days before he was able to get in touch with Bella to find out about Ruby. He only had to wait until six-thirty, that was five hours from now. Five hours. Only five hours to figure out what he should tell her about this whole imprinting business… not to mention the whole 'I'm a werewolf' thing. Man, he needed help. Big time help.

"Sam," he yelled before he turned and jogged to the alpha's house.

Ok, I paraphrased Stephenie Meyer when it came to the whole Imprinting business because well, I haven't imprinted yet and I don't think I ever will so I don't know what it's like ;)

I have already written a few chapters (and I have other stories I'm working on) so I'm hoping I can update about once a week, give or take a few days. This is going to be a long one (by my standards at least) so I hope you can hang in until the end.
