I did my best at trying to ignore the mindless gossip and chatter echoing throughout the lunchroom. The stupid humans will never learn when to shut their fucking mouths. I nearly cringed as I heard the annoying squeaky noise coming from Lauren Mallory's mouth. Lauren was the head bitch of La Push High. I had no clue why she was even attending a Quileute school, she was 100 percent white. Her fellow posse members cackled along to some lame joke she made about some girl. I swear if those girls don't fucking shut their mouths I'll show who's fucking laughing now.
"Like, oh my gosh, did you see that new Swan girl. Like I totally have never seen anyone more uglier than her. Did I mention those horrible jeans she was wearing earlier? Ugh! That girl has like zero fashion sense!" One of the Lauren clones, Jessica Stanley, exclaimed.
Ah, Chief Swan's daughter. It was no secret among the Council that Charlie was a Quileute descendant. He got it from his father. Too bad the gene had skipped his generation so he never got to phase. He's a fucking lucky bastard if you ask me. Being a wolf had its perks, but sometimes it could be a fucking pain.
The whole room went quiet and my werewolf senses picked up the sound of the door opening swiftly. My back stiffened as the scent of jasmine and strawberries assaulted my nose. The scent was mouthwatering.
Embry gave a low whistle, "Looks like the new girl is a hottie."
I turned around in my seat and what I saw made my mouth water even more. She was absolutely beautiful and irresistibly sexy. Her mahogany hair, which shined a dark shade of red when the light hit it, ended just a few inches past her waist. Her skin was lightly tanned, a perfect mix of cream and chocolate. It was mesmerizing just looking at it. She was wearing a simple pair of tight fitting jeans and a tank top which seemed to make her delicious curves more visible. She was definitely hot.
Her head craned around the room, probably looking for someone, but then her wide and innocent chocolate brown eyes met my own and everything around me didn't seem to matter anymore. My love for my family, the pack, it didn't matter anymore. All of my ties had been cut off right then and there like that weak balloon string you buy at the dollar store. Instead I felt strong steal cables latch onto this one girl before my eyes, like she was the only one able to anchor me to the ground. She was all that mattered, now and forever.
A smile curved its way on those gorgeous, plump lips of hers. I felt like running over, grabbing her in my arms and kissing her for hours, never wanting to let go.
I hissed as something came in contact with the back of my head. I spun around and glared at Embry who had a smug look on his face. Jared was full out laughing and Jacob was trying his hardest not to join in.
"What!" I growled
"Dude, did you just imprint on the Chief's daughter?" Embry asked incredulously.
That did it. Jacob burst out laughing and all eyes were suddenly on us. I gave the onlookers a death glare and they went back to what they were doing before, acting as if nothing had happened. Pathetic humans.
I could still feel her eyes on me and I tried to resist the urge to turn around, but fate had to be a bitch and told my body otherwise. I turned to see that Bella had taken seat next to Angela and Ben, the school's nerdiest couple. Again I question why they came here. They were just as white as Lauren and Jessica, maybe even more.
I gave her one of my trademark smirks and my insides jumped with joy when I could pick up the sound of her heart beating erratically in her chest. I was happy knowing I was the one who caused it.
"I'll be right back." I excused myself and walked over to her table. I could the eyes of my fellow pack members on me and I didn't have to be a mind reader to know that they were shocked.
"Hey Paul, wanna come to my house tonight? I'm having a party and I want you to come." Lauren tried her best at flirting with me as I passed by her table.
Yeah right, I knew there was no party. It was just some scheme to get me in her bed.
"Never gonna happen and never will." I brushed her off and continued on my journey towards my imprint. She looked up as if sensing my presence and her breath hitched in her throat. Glad to know I had that effect on her.
"I believe we've never been formally introduced. I'm Paul." I said and stuck out my hand, trying my best to be polite. Angela and Ben just looked creeped out; staring at me as though I was some totally different person.
"Bella." Her small, delicate hand touched mine and it felt like thousands of bolts were being shot through my system, but damn did it feel good. And apparently Bella thought so too since she shivered from the touch.
Down boy. It's nto time for that yet.
"What a beautiful name." I commented
"Thanks." She looked down at the floor as she blushed. My cock twitched as I imagined how far that blush went.
"Not a problem. Hey, I was wondering if you would like to hang out sometime." I blurted out without thinking.
"Um...I don't know, I mean I hardly even know you. I'll have to get back to on that later." She said
"Okay, I guess I'll see you later." I said and turned to walk away.
"Bye." She whispered under her breath, obviously I wasn't meant to hear it but I managed to catch it.
I sat back down next to the guys.
Did I just get rejected?
"Dude, you are so fucking whipped." Embry laughed at his own lame tease.
"Just shut your fucking mouth or do you want me to fucking do it myself?" I snapped
"Damn bro, I didn't mean it that way. Just chill." Embry said calmly.
"Fuck off." I mumbled
"Looks like somebody just loves using the F word." Jared teased in a sing-song voice.
"Shut up." I said
"Make me." He shot back.
That's it. I shot to my feet, tremors racked through my body as my vision turned red. My hands slammed down onto the table as I took in deep breaths, trying to calm myself down.
"Paul, what the hell! Everyone's looking, God are you trying to expose us or something. Chill out man." Jake said in a hushed tone.
I could feel my imprint's fear and that managed to get me calmed down a little. I inhaled and exhaled deeply and finally sat down. My control still needed some improvement, but I couldn't help it. I was barely even two months into this new life.
"Was it just me or did Paul like look so totally hot." Jessica said with an annoying giggle. Her friends soon followed and Lauren stared at me with lust filled eyes.
"I've always wanted a bad boy to myself, especially hot muscular ones." She said dramatically and winked when I cast a look her way. I mentally barfed at how fucking desperate she was.
Luckily fate decided to be nice and the bell rang, signaling for us to head over to 5th period. I grabbed my bag and trudged over to Trigonometry. I entered the class and sat down in my usual seat. I sat alone since most of my classmates were either afraid of me or drooled over me during the whole lesson. I opened up my textbook and waited patiently for the teacher to arrive.
The door opened and shut closed, the breeze sending a mixture of jasmine and strawberry my way. I inhaled the beautiful scent as I recognized it to be my imprint's. The chair beside scrapped against the linoleum floor and two jean clad legs came into view. My eyes traveled up her thighs to her tiny waist all the way up to her gorgeous eyes.
"So, is it later now?" I asked
"No." She snapped and I laughed.
"What's so funny?" She asked
"Nothing, nothing." I shook my head as I continued to chuckle at the look on her face. She looked like an angry little kitten.
"You know, I was gonna thank you for finding myself so humorous, but I don't think I will." She said
"Ouch, that one kinda hurt." I said teasingly and placed my hand over my heart.
"Well, too bad." She said and turned to face the board as the teacher, Mr. Robston, entered the room.
During the entire period I acted as if I didn't know anything and would occasionally ask Bella a question. She would reply sweetly but after the thirtieth time she was really starting to get pissed and I loved every minute of it.
Finally the bell rung and the class dispersed to their next classrooms.
"So, what class do you have next?' I asked her as we walked out into the busy and crowded hallway. I could see every single face thanks to my shocking height of 6'5 and it wasn't very hard keeping up with her. I shoved a couple of freshman that got in my way.
She took out her schedule, "Government with Suarez. Room 225."
I grinned, "Well what a coincidence. That's my next class, too."
She groaned, "Great, I have to put up with you for a whole hour, again."
"Don't hate, appreciate. That's my motto." I said
"Wanna know what my motto is? Fuck off or I'll kick you so hard in the balls you won't be able to have babies in the future." She said
She was the one who was going to have my babies. It was a true fact, unless she chooses to reject the imprint, leaving me lonely for the rest of my never-ending life.
"Who said I didn't have babies already?" I lifted up my right brow. It took me months to actually master it.
She gasped and I burst out laughing, "I was kidding."
"Shit, don't ever scare the crap out of me like that again!" She exclaimed and punched my arm.
It wouldn't have hurt if it were some other human doing it, but her being my imprint it kinda stung a little. I discreetly rubbed my shoulder, hoping she wouldn't notice. Thank God she hadn't.
"Are you daydreaming again?" Bella's voice managed to snap me out of my thoughts.
"Yeah, I guess I am. So, is later now?" I asked
Hopefully she'll finally say yes.
"Paul, I can't go out with you." She said
"But why?" I asked as we came to a stop in the parking lot. It was officially the end of school and almost everyone was already gone.
"Because I'm kinda already seeing someone right now." She admitted nervously.
Those words hurt me more than anything ever could. Even death couldn't compare to the amount of pain my heart felt. She was already taken. My imprint already had a fucking boyfriend!
"Oh." I said lamely.
"I'm sorry." She apologized
"Don't worry about it. It's just I really like you. You're different from other girls. You're special." I gave her a smile and her heart started to beat double-time.
"Thanks." Her face flushed and a small smile danced on the corner of her lips.
"No problem." I said
Just then a silver Volvo raced into the parking lot and came to a stop about two feet from me. Gay car, nice driver.
The door opened up and I was instantly hit with the smell of bleach and something way too sweet. It burned my nose badly. A pale guy with some carrot-colored hair stepped out and I immediately stiffened. It was a bloodsucker.
"Bella, love." He greeted my imprint, took her face between his pasty white hands and kissed her roughly on the lips. I could practically see the bruises forming.
My whole form started to shake as I watched the leech make out with my imprint. And the worst part was that she was actually kissing him back. She didn't show any signs of disgust, she looked like she was enjoying it. After what seemed like long torturous hours they finally pulled away and my Bella looked absolutely breathless. Carrot Head gave me a satisfied grin that made me growl. Bella gave me a strange look.
"Paul, are you okay?" She asked in a concerned voice.
"No." I said through clenched teeth as I tried to regain control.
"Leave him alone Bella, he probably just has some mental issues." Carrot Head whispered into her ear even though I could hear every word.
That just pissed me off even more. Bella immediately noticed it.
"Paul, are you sure you're okay. Why are you shaking?" She asked me softly.
"Don't, love." Carrot Head roughly grabbed her shoulder and pulled her back away from me as she tried to take a step forward.
I hissed at she winced in pain.
"Let her go." I spat at him.
"Make me." He challenged
"You stupid son of a bitch!" I shouted and I was just on the brink of phasing when Bella broke free from Carrot Head's grasp and practically tackled me in a hug. Her tiny arms wrapped around my waist and her cheek pressed up against my chest, right where my heart was. Once my skin came in contact with hers my shaking stopped.
My arms wrapped themselves around her clipped waist and I pulled her closer to me, marveling at the warmth of her skin. It was a little bit hotter than I had expected it to be. Carrot head gave me a warning growl but I just fucking ignored him.
But then Bella pulled back and looked me in the eye. Then she did something that shocked both me and Carrot Head.
She kissed me. Right on the lips. I reacted in a split second and tightened my arms that were around her. Her fingers curled into my dark hair and I growled against her lips as she gently pulled on the strands. But as soon as it had started the sooner it was done. I felt Bella pull back and opened my eyes to see that she wore an embarrassed expression on her face.
"Isabella." Carrot Head spat and her face drained of all color. She looked like a ghost.
Acting on pure instinct I push my imprint behind me and faced the filthy leech. The expression he wore was dark and might've scared a human, but to me it was nothing.
"Hand her over to me." He demanded
"Not a chance." I responded
"Isabella!" I felt Bella flinch against my back and she pressed herself harder against my body, "Get. Over. Here. Now!"
"She doesn't want to go. How can you not see that you stupid leech!" I screamed at the top of my lungs as my body began to shake again. My imprint whimpered against my back.
"This has nothing to do with you, pup." He sneered.
Don't listen to him. Don't listen to him. I chanted over and over in my head.
I practically jumped out of my skin as I felt a small hand press on my shoulder. I turned my head to see Bella, her eyes red-rimmed.
'You have to let me go.' She mouthed. I shook my head so fast that I was starting to get a headache.
"Never." I vowed
She nodded her head and I turned back to the leech.
"She isn't going anywhere with you," I spun around and whispered into my Bella's ear, "Get in my car. It's the black truck over there." I pointed towards it. She quickly obeyed and shut the door behind her.
"How dare you!" He exploded, not literally, and I bet if he were human his face would be beat red from anger.
I just ignored him and ran over to my car at werewolf speed. I slammed shut the door, but before I pulled away I rolled down the window.
"By the way, you just broke the treaty you dirty bloodsucker! I'm letting you go with a warning! Cross over again and you're dead meat!"
I pulled out of the parking lot and raced down the road towards Sam and Emily's house. The Council needed to know about this.
"Paul, what's going on? What are you talking about? What is the treaty? I'm really confused right now; can you just please tell me what's happening?" My imprint poured out millions of questions.
She has a right to know, she's your imprint. I thought
"Bella, do you know about the Cold Ones or vampires as you humans like to call them?" I asked her. She stiffened as I spoke and that got me very suspicious.
"Bella, do you know any vampires at all?" I asked
"No." She lied
"Don't lie to me Bella." I said and pulled over to the shoulder of the street.
"I'm not." She said and crossed her arms over her chest.
"Bella, you can just drop the attitude. Now tell me, and I'm not going to repeat myself again. Do you know if your boyfriend is a vampire?" I asked while looking her in the eye.
She sighed, "Yes, but you can't tell anyone I told you this! No one is supposed to know!"
I chuckled, "Bella, it's alright. I already knew what. In fact I know that his whole family are vampires."
Her eyes widened, "How did you know? They said I'm the only one who knew."
"I knew about them before you ever did, Bella," I said, "Don't worry, I'll explain everything soon. Once we find Sam."
"You promise?" She asked
This is a new story that I co-wrote with my cousin. Unfortunetely she's not allowed to have an account, so I posted her story up on my account. She, well we, hope you like it and would love to hear your response on the plot line. She hopes you'll review 'cause she's been working on this story for about two weeks.
