The October air cut through Bella's sweatshirt as she snuggled up to Jacob. They were leaning against Bella's truck outside of Moe's Diner, watching as Mia packed up the last of her things in preparation for her move. Mia strolled out the front door, large cardboard box in hand, before heaving it into the trunk of her already packed car. After slamming the trunk shut she leaned back and stretched her arms over her head. "Well, that's the last of it." Her slumped forward, she was obviously exhausted.
"I can't believe tonight's your last night on the west coast," Bella said for what felt like the twelfth time that day.
"It seems like just yesterday you were butting into other people's relationships by hatching up plans and scheming." Jacob's tone was playful and he gave Mia a small smile, which she barely returned.
"Yeah well, you two just couldn't handle my genius." She glanced over her shoulder at Embry. In town for the weekend, he was leaning up against his car and watching her with a thoughtful expression. Mia had announced last weekend that she was selling the diner and moving across the country, to Virginia Beach to be exact. "My family and I went there every summer before I moved up here when I was fifteen. I liked the beach atmosphere, the nice sea breeze, the warm sand under your feet- Oh don't give me that look Black, it makes me feel like I'm in a Disney movie okay?" Mia had said, leaning against the counter after fixing them all drinks. Embry had stiffened. "Well then, I hope you enjoy high taxes, tourists, and those annoying ass seagulls." He had stood up and walked out of the diner without another word.
Needless to say, the past few days had been tense.
Mia cleared her throat and looked back over at Jacob and Bella. "You guys don't have to stay here you know, watching my dumbass brother sign the ownership papers is really not a big deal."
"Naw," Jacob said, wrapping an arm around Bella's shoulder. He seemed oddly perky, considering the uptight atmosphere. "We'll stay. It's not like we have anything better to do."
"Yeah," Bella agreed, moving to rest her head on Jacob's shoulder. "It's not like I have a job to go to anymore."
Mia gave her a sheepish grin. "Sorry about that. Maybe Seb will let you stay?" she offered.
Bella shook her head. "It won't be the same," she said quietly.
Mia shrugged with one shoulder before looking back at Embry again. They both looked each other in the eye for a moment before turning their heads away. Everyone stood there for a beat before Mia gave an infuriated huff and whirled around to face Embry, hands on her hips.
"Quit acting like such a fucking douchebag motherfucking asshole, angry, selfish—I…I…You just…ARGH! I asked you to come with me, and you're the one who said no. So don't look at me like I'm the one who's doing something wrong here, okay?" And with that she turned on her heel and stormed into the diner.
Embry continued to lean against his car, his expression unreadable. He turned and looked into the window of the passenger's side for a moment, as if he was contemplating opening the door. Finally he turned around and followed Mia into the diner.
"Oh how I would love to be a fly on the wall for whatever conversation they're about to have," Jacob said.
"I know, but I just hate seeing them like this. I really wish—Jacob Black, why are you laughing?"
Jacob backed away from her, towards Embry's car. He was biting his lip to keep himself from grinning and there was a mischievous glint to his eye. "Because Embry Call is such a little shit. He's spent this whole past hour just letting her hate him, when all the while he's…Oh come here and see for yourself." He grabbed her hand and towed her over to the passenger's side of Embry's beat up car. "Look into the window, on what's sitting in the car seat."
Bella obeyed, cupping her hands and peering through the window. "There's a plane ticket and what looks like transfer acceptance papers to the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University." Bella snapped up straight and turned to Jacob, her eyes wide with disbelief. "I didn't think Embry was that smart."
Jacob snorted. "He's book smart, just not street smart." He nudged her playfully with his elbow. "But you get it though? He's following her?" He drew back, surprised when Bella didn't immediately react. "I thought you'd be really excited to hear this."
Bella shook her head quickly. "Oh no! I am! It's just my mind is still reeling over the fact that Embry Call got into Virginia Tech—"
"Hey, it shocked me too," came Mia's pleased drawl from behind them. Bella turned around and grinned at her and Embry, who were standing behind them hand in hand. Mia looked amused, if slightly exasperated. Embry just looked pleased with himself.
The sound of crunching gravel made them all turn and watch as a beat up Toyota pulled into the parking lot. After parking the car Sebastian popped out of the driver's seat, an excited grin stretched across his face.
Mia's expression however, turned grim, and Bella saw Embry move a little bit closer to her, as if to provide support. Sebastian bounded up to them, his smile fading when he caught his twin's wary gaze. "Oh come on, you know I'm going to take care of it!"
Mia twisted the toe of her shoe into the dirt and sighed. "Yeah I know you will. But if I hear one bad thing from mom I'll leave my lovely new beach life just to fly out here and kick your ass into next Sunday, got that?"
Sebastian nodded enthusiastically, his grin returning. "Oh how the tables have turned," he said with mock vexation.
Mia gave him a half smile before punching him playfully in the shoulder and waving for him to follow her inside. "The papers you need to sign are on the counter, and I still need to show you how to properly grill a steak, since you still fucking destroy yours to this day."
"That's not true," Sebastian snapped indignantly. The twins began to argue as they continued into the diner, Embry behind them, their voices fading as the front door shut behind them with a click.
Jacob turned and strolled back over to Bella's truck and hopped into the bed, gesturing for Bella to follow him. After he helped her up, they both laid down and curled up close to each other in order to keep warm. The sun was setting and the sky blazed with pink and gold shaded clouds.
"So now we have friends in Virginia, who would have thought," Jacob said, amusement coloring his tone. Bella looped her arm over his waist and pressed the side of her cheek into his chest. "You know, it would be nice to visit them, and then I'll have an excuse to swing by Florida on the way back and visit Renee. I haven't seen her in forever."
"I wouldn't mind going to Florida. I've never really been out of the north west, to be honest," Jacob mused, his breath warm against her neck.
Bella lifted her head up so that she could look at his face. "And on our way back from Florida, we might as well swing into New Orleans."
"Or we could stay in Florida and go to Disney World."
Bella rolled her eyes. "Geez Jake—"
"Oh whatever, I never got to go as a kid. I need to make up for lost time."
Bella shook her head, but she was smiling. "Sure thing then."
Grinning, Jacob began to run his fingers through her hair, smoothing out the tangles the wind had caused. "It doesn't really matter though," he said, leaning forward and placing butterfly kisses on the top of her head.
"Nope. As long as I'm with you I'm pretty content."
"Well in that case," Bella pushed herself up and rolled on top of Jacob, straddling his waist. "Let's just stay right here."
Jacob's happy smile stretched to his eyes. "You know what Bells, I love that idea."
A/N: And thus ends Unimpressed. First of all, thank you SO MUCH to everyone who consistently reviewed and provided encouragement with each chapter. I mean it when I say that you guys brighten my day, I really do. The last couple of chapters for this fic were more difficult for me to write due to loss of interest, but you guys reminded me why I needed to finish this story and I thank you so much for that. I don't like not finishing what I start, so I'm happy to say I completed this fic.
One thing I do want to address, this story was never written with the intention of being super serious or well thought out. Unimpressed is the result of me goofing around with the Twilight characters on Microsoft Word. I'm serious. I wanted to write something fun, that could make you laugh, since Jacob and Bella fanfiction is usually crowded with angst stories that are serious business. I wanted to do something light hearted. I've had a few people point out here and there that this story was unrealistic or OOC at times…well, like I said, I never wrote it with the intention of it being extremely in-character or realistic. That was never my purpose with this story. Unimpressed is supposed to make you laugh, pure and simple. I can only hope it managed to achieve that.
Phew! That was long winded! ANYWAY. I'm going to go ahead and answer some questions so you guys don't have to ask them.
Will there be a sequel?
Are you going to write Mia/Embry spinoffs?
Probably not. Since I saw such an outpouring of love for this little ship, I'd be curious to see what you guys, the readers, could come up with involving them.
Will you write more Jacob/Bella stories?
I'll write more one-shots and drabbles, but I can't see myself writing another multi-chapter fic for them. But never say never…
What's up next for you, fic writing wise?
Some J/B one-shots are up my sleeve, like I said, but my next big project is going to be writing stories for Avatar: The Last Airbender (Zuko/Katara, before anyone asks). I broke down last week and wrote a one-shot for them. It's up on my account here in case any of you wanted to read it.
AND THAT'S ALL FOLKS!
I seriously love you guys!
