Hi guys, sorry for not updating for quite a bit. I started school and everything is just hectic, I am going to try and update more frequently. Here's Chap 13. Thanks to those of you who have reviewed, it encourages me to write :-D.


Chapter 13- Jacob's Heartbeat

When Jacob and I arrived at my house I told Charlie that I was going to do my homework and then go to sleep right after that. The truth was that I didn't have homework and I wasn't planning on sleeping early either. Jacob was waiting for me in my room. I felt content that he was spending the night because it made me feel safer.

I walked into the room and Jacob was in his usual spot on the floor next to my bed. I lay down on my bed and looked down at him. He was smiling the smile that made my heart beat faster and my cheeks blush.

"What are you thinking about?" He asked.

"You." I said it before I could stop myself.

"Really?" He looked a bit surprised.

"Yes. You're always there for me and I can't thank you enough."

"You don't need to. I do it because I love you."

That statement used to make me feel uncomfortable, but every time he says it now I feel hope.

It was silent for a few minutes. Jacob looked thoughtful.

"What are you thinking about?" I asked.

"Well…wouldn't it be safer if you transferred schools. You can come to the one on reservation." He said, without meeting my gaze.

It would be nice to be around Jacob and the pack a lot more, but there were only two and a half months for graduation. I already had everything ready, I just needed to pass the finals and I was done.

"Jake, I don't want to be the new kid again. Plus graduation in few months." I explained.

"Fine." He looked worried again.

"Jake. These vampires…" I took a deep breath. "…they aren't going to harm me." I hope.

"How do you know?" He raised an eyebrow.

"You see, they have golden eyes meaning that they only drink animal blood not human blood."


I knew there was something else that was bothering him.

"Jake, what's really wrong?"

He looked at me with anxious eyes. "What if the Cullens come back."

He was thinking the same thing I was earlier today. I knew that they weren't coming back because Edward said it himself, I'm not good for him. And if he truly loved me then he wouldn't have left me in a broken state.

"They won't." I said.

He smiled and didn't say anything about that subject anymore. Right then I heard Charlie's footsteps outside the door. I mentioned Jacob to be quiet.

"Bells, I'm going to sleep. Are you done with your homework?"

"Um.." Jacob's fingers were on my neck trying to tickle me. "Yeah, I'm done." I tried to hold back the laughter.

"Okay, goodnight."

"Night, dad." Those two words took a lot of strength to say with out giggling.

I heard his footsteps grow fainter and then his door close.

"Are you trying to get us caught." I whispered.

"You should've seen your face, Bella." Jacob laughed.

I laughed along with him and then I put on a serious look.

"What?" He said, wide eyed.

"I wonder if werewolves are ticklish." I smirked.

I launched my hands to him and started to tickle his ribs. He started laughing, but not too loud.

"Bells…I'm extremely…ticklish." He laughed.

I didn't stop, but in a swift movement he pulled my arms towards him. I closed my eyes thinking that I was going to land on the wooden floor, but instead I felt something warm and soft under my hands. When I opened my eyes, Jacob's face was centimeters away from mine. He was smiling. Then I realized that I was actually laying on top of him. I tried to move but his arms wrapped around me. My heart started beating out of control and I felt like if I had butterflies in my stomach.

He was staring at me intently and so was I. I couldn't move my gaze away from him, there was something that was keeping me there.

He brought his hand up to my face a brushed my hair behind my ear and then gently pulled me closer to him. I could feel his hot breath on my lips, but what was also amazing was that I could feel his heart beating frantically under my hand, that was on his chest. He was nervous, too. Without thinking about anything else our lips touched, it sent a million sparks through my body. It was something that I had never experienced. His lips were warm, soft and inviting. His arms tightened around my waist, while mine wrapped around his neck. I pushed myself closer to him, trying to deepen the kiss. It was magical, they way I felt at that moment.

Our lips moved in synchronization and I didn't want it to stop, but then he pulled away slightly. I had forgotten that I needed to breath and by the time our lips parted I was gasping for air. A smile spread across his face and I couldn't help but to smile back.

I felt overjoyed, I always imagined that kissing Jacob would remind me of the times with Edward, but I was wrong. Jacob's kiss was different it was gentle yet I felt free. With Edward I always had to be careful, but with Jake it was a different story.

Jacob interrupted my thoughts. "Bella."

I put my finger on his lips, I was happy with what just happened.

I gave him a quick chaste kiss on his lips. "Goodnight." Then wrapped my arms around him and so did he.

Even though I came upon three vampires today, this was one of the best days ever because of Jacob's kiss.

My head was on his chest as I drifted off to sleep, listening to Jacob's heartbeat.

I woke to a warm, but cloudy day. I sighed in happiness, from thoughts of last night. Jacob and I kissed for the first time. I didn't know what it meant, but I didn't worry about it.

I stretched my legs and arms. Something was weird, I was lying on top of something soft and bouncy, with covers over me. As I opened my eyes and sat up straight, I realized that I was on my bed… alone. If I remember perfectly, I slept on the floor with Jacob. I looked around my room and he wasn't there, he didn't even leave a note like last time.

What if he left because of the kiss, no that couldn't be it. Maybe I talked during my sleep and said something wrong. I was starting to get nervous, but decided to get ready and then call him to see if there was something wrong.

I stood up and looked at my clock, it read: 6:30. Good, it was still early enough to get ready, call Jacob and go to school.

After I showered and dress I went to my room to get my book bag, that's when I heard voices coming from downstairs. That's strange, it's too early for visitors.

I made my way down, the voices getting louder. It was Charlie and Jacob. He was here. My heart raced with happiness that he didn't leave me.

Wait, if Jacob was here then did Charlie know that he spent the night with me. Oh no, that's bad, really, really bad. I know that we didn't do anything wrong, but Charlie wouldn't like the idea of me being alone with a guy in my room all night.

"Hey, Bells. You okay?" Charlie said, coming of the kitchen with Jacob trailing behind him. Thank goodness, he was wearing a shirt.

"Uh, yeah." I looked over at Jake. He smiled.

Charlie didn't look mad, maybe Jacob didn't tell him.

"Well, I'm heading off to work. See you kids later." Charlie walked out of the front door, worry free.

"Do you know how dangerous that is!" I was mad that Jake would endanger, what ever we have, with Charlie. I walked over, pointing my finger at him. He looked a little scared and backed away from me, stopping when his back hit the wall.

"Bells, what's wrong?" He asked.

"Charlie could have found out that you slept here."

He lowered my pointing finger, but still held my hand.

"And what if he did?" He smirked.

"What if he did!" I repeated. "He would kill you!" I knew Charlie wouldn't literally kill him, but he would prohibit me from seeing him.

Jacob had a playful look in his eyes. He suddenly moved quickly, the next thing I knew I was pinned to the wall with Jacob right in front of me. His closeness made me blush, even though I tried to suppress it. He moved closer, I could feel his lips gracing the side of my face.

"We haven't done anything wrong…yet." He said in a husky voice.

My body gave an involuntary shudder at the word, yet. I forgot that I was mad at him, all I could feel were his lips trailing down to my neck. My heart beat out of control and I was breathing faster.

"Calm down, Bells. Your heart is going to blow out of your chest." He brought his face back up and smiled, kindly.

I did as he told me, taking deep breaths to control myself.

"You shouldn't be doing that." I said.

"What? This." Jacob said, demonstrating me what he had just done a minute ago.

Before he repeated that again I pushed him and walked towards the door. "No. Scaring me." I smiled because I knew that it was a lie. What he just did, now, created a unexpected sensation inside of me. I never felt this with Edward. It was new and I didn't know what to do with it.

I walked out and saw a Jacob's Rabbit parked in front.

"I thought you stayed here all night."

"No, I went home, changed and drove here. That's what I was going to explain when you attacked me." He had an innocent look in his face.

"Oh, sorry." I smiled. "Wait. Why did you leave?"

"Well, you know Bells, I'm still human. I needed to shower and change clothes." He said, as a matter of fact.

"So Charlie doesn't know anything?"

"No." He laughed.

"It's not funny." I smiled.

We walked to his car and drove to school.

"Why are you taking me to school?"

"No reason." He said, without meeting my gaze.

I didn't push it, I knew what this was about, he wanted to see the new vampires. I just hoped that he didn't make a scene in front of everyone.

When we got there Jacob opened my door. He was looking around, searching for them.

"Jake, everything is going to be okay." I put my hand on his chest.

"I know, just be careful." Although his eyes looked worried, he smiled.

"I will. See you after school."

He nodded in agreement.

As I walked towards my first class I could feel someone walking behind me. I turned to see who it was, Nathan.

"Hi Isabella." He greeted.

Hope you liked it. Please review :-D.
