A/N: I would like to say sorry because I was supposed to post a chapter every day this week but I computer came down with what I like to call herpes (a virus) and I just got it back up so I'm really sorry. Ah this is my Christmas story. If you guys want more chapters I'll write more later on if I get ten reviews asking for it.
A couple of things I like to say before you get to the story.
1) Sam, Embry, and Bella are siblings and they know they are. They all have the same parents. So no parent drama at all.
2) Bella is the youngest. She's 16. Leah 23. Sam 24. Embry 19. Jacob 18. Quil 18. (Anyone else I'll tell you about later.)
3) Bella is 5'4". Leah is 6'3". Embry is 6'7". Sam is 6'9". Jacob is 6'6". Quil 6'6". (This is important later on so just keep this in mind.)
4) The Uleys are the ones that carry the Alpha bloodline. Not the Blacks!
5) The Cullens (Carlisle, Esme, Jasper, Alice, Rosalie, and Emmett) are actually really cool with the wolves so there is barely any tension between them. But that doesn't mean there won't be any problem with any vampires.
Now that I'm done with that I would like to say Happy Holidays and stay safe!
Why does the world think that it's funny to fuck with me? First Sam, my ex-fiancé, breaks up with me to get with my cousin Emily. Then a week before Thanksgiving my father dies from a heart attack while he was on a hunting trip. And to top everything off I turned into a wolf two weeks before Christmas.
So for the last week I've been learning to deal with my temper and trying to turn on and off the mind link that I now share with a group of hormonal boys. Both of which is not working out at all.
Right now I was laying in my bed trying to avoid my mother who's forcing us to go to Sam and Emily's Christmas party. She thinks that it's a good idea to make sure the pack stays close netted. I personally think that I she just wants me to forgive Sam and become the happy family that she was so used to seeing.
A knock brought me out of my thoughts. "Leah," Seth said from the other side of the door.
"What," I mumbled knowing that he would hear me.
"Mom said put on your clothes and be down in five."
I rolled my eyes before getting up. "I'll be down in a few."
I got up quickly and put on a pair a black slacks and a green and red button up blouse. After I slipped on my flats I walked down the stairs slowly.
"Leah hurry up! I would like to get there before my cake gets cold," my mother chimed.
I walked into the living room with a small smile on my face. "Mom your cakes aren't going to get cold."
"You don't know that!" I withheld the urge to roll my eyes at her childishness. "Oh and Leah please act like you want to be there."
"Isabella," Renee my mother called from the living room. "Hurry up!"
"I'm putting my ears on," I called down.
"Do you need help?"
My mother insisted that we go to my older bother Sam's party in costumes. My mother was going as Misses Claus and I was going as a elf.. At the time that my mother suggested this I wasn't really thinking about what I would have to wear in the costume besides ears. I forgot who my mother was. As of right now I was wearing a red and green dress that stopped three and a half inches above my knees, three inch knee-high heels, and a snowflake necklace that was dangling above my breast. I don't know how I ended up agreeing to this but it was must too late to back out of it right now.
My mother walked into the room quickly. "Okay lets put your ears on and your hat so we can leave," my mother said as she placed the first ear on.
"Is this all necessary," I asked tilting my head to the side so she could have better access to my ear.
"Isabella Uley, you know that us Uley don't do anything half assed." I sighed softly as she went back to putting my ears on. "All right." She place my hat on carefully avoiding my ears. "All done. Now lets go before all of the boys eat up the food."
"Sam when is Isabella getting her," Jacob said impatiently.
I rolled my eyes. "Why does it matter? Your not allowed to date my little sister."
"But why not?"
"Because I said so."
"What if I imprint on her?"
"Then that's a whole different subject."
"So you wouldn't mind?"
"Oh I never said that," I said patting Jacob on his back. "I just don't know what I would do to you yet if you imprinted on my sister."
"You know it can't be controlled."
"And I know that you better hope that it doesn't happen or your going to be very tired."
Jacob sighed heavily as he went into the living room. For the last week he had been pissing everyone off with the Bella is my soul mate bullshit. I for one wouldn't care one bit if he did imprint on her but because he was constantly saying it I would make him suffer if he did.
I grabbed the ham out of the oven and place it on the counter. "How did you know I was going to ask you to take it out," Emily asked as she wrapped her arms around me.
"I could smell that it was almost done," I answered giving her a full blown smile.
"Do you think Leah is going to come?"
I withheld a sigh as I looked at the woman who stole my heart from Leah with a single look. "Sue is going to force her to come but don't expect her to be all happy-go-lucky about it."
"I just feel bad."
"Don't." I placed a kiss on top of her head. "What is done is done. There is no reason at all to feel bad about anything that happened. One day Leah is going to forgive us."
The kitchen door open to reveal Sue, Seth, and Leah holding three different cakes. A smile spread across my face when I noticed that for the first time in a very long time Leah was smiling. Maybe she's going to forgive-.
"What are you staring at Sam," Leah huffed.
"I'm just glad that you guys made it here alright," I answered turning away.
"We only live two blocks away."
"Hey Sam what did you get Bella," Jacob asked as he stuffed his face with different sweets.
"None of your business," Sam answered as he pulled Emily into his lap.
"You guys are just going to have to wait until everyone get here to see," Emily chimed in.
"I want to open mines," Embry mumbled crossing his arms.
"For you to be related to Sam you whine a lot," I chuckled softly.
"What's that supposed to mean?"
"Well besides the fact that you're a nineteen year old boy, Uleys don't whine," I explained.
Emily let out a small chuckle. Remembering what my mother said I gave Emily an amused smirk. "No, Sam is the only one of the Uleys that doesn't whine."
"You met Isabella too," Jacob asked pouting.
Of course she met the youngest of the Uleys. Bella had moved here to live with her mother after her scholarship to her boarding school was dropped. Sam and Emily were the ones that picked her up from the airport because Renee was setting something up for Bella.
"I am going to be her future sister-in-law after all."
"Jake if you start making advances to my little sister I'm going to kick your ass," Embry said smiling the whole time.
"Why are both of you threatening me," Jacob asked puffing his chest out.
"Because dude that's what older bothers do when their sister is involved."
"Think about how you threatened me when I imprinted on Rachel," Paul said as he nuzzled Rachel's neck. "it's a brother thing."
Before Jacob could say anything the doorbell rung. Embry got up and answered it quickly. "Embry," the most beautiful voice I ever heard said.
"Bella why did you ring the doorbell," he asked chuckling. "It's open."
"We need help with the gifts," Renee shout.
"Here I come mom."
When Embry came to the door I was taken back by how tall he had grown. Last week he was two inches taller then me and now he was a good foot taller. But I guess I shouldn't be surprise because dad was almost seven feet.
Sam came out with a big smirk on his face. "Is there any more," he asked examining my out fit.
I held up the last two presents in my hand. "Embry took the rest in all ready."
"Yeah he wanted to show off how strong he got."
I chuckled. "Some way to show that."
Mom walked up and hugged Sam tightly. "My boys need to come see me more often," she said mocking anger.
"We will mom," I heard Embry shout.
"Let's get you two in before you guys get cold," Sam said taking the two gifts that I had showed him.
As I walked into the house I was welcomed by the smell of ham and hot cocoa. I walked into the living room and stopped when my eyes met the softest brown eyes that I had ever seen. I felt my heart tugging towards the woman as I stared deep into her eyes.
Jacob stood up and prepared himself for the moment that he been waiting for his whole life for. But as soon as his smile disappeared I knew that his dreams were crushed.
I smirked. "What's wrong Jake," I whispered so low that only the wolves could here me. "She's not the one?"
"Fuck you Leah," He growled.
I looked over my shoulder to meet the milk chocolate eyes of the youngest Uley. As soon as my eyes connected she was the only thing that I wanted and needed. I would do whatever she wanted me to as long as it made her happy. I had imprinted on my ex-fiancé's little sister.
A blush creeped onto her face as she looked down at her feet. "Bella come on in here and meet the pack," Embry said giving her a full blown smile.
I looked at Sam who was smiling at me. "Treat her well," he mouthed out.
"You have nothing to worry about," I mouthed back.
"The pack," Bella asked confused.
"Yeah we're werewolves," Embry said shrugging.
Bella tilted her head back and let out the most amazing laugh that I have ever heard. "You guys have to be kidding me," Bella finally said.
"We're not," Sam said giving her a small smile.
"Samuel, maybe you should show her," Renee suggested.
"I'll do it," I said not thinking.
"No need at all for any of you guys to do that. It's like twenty degrees out there and I believe you guys," Bella said shaking her head.
"It's fine really," I insisted. "We wolves run a cool hundred and ten."
"It's fine." She smiled as she checked me out. "You must be Leah."
I couldn't help but smile. She knew my name. "Um yeah."
Her smile grew. "Sam told me about you."
I never been more thankful for Sam in my whole life that I was right now. "Okay let's open gifts," Jared said handing out Sam's gifts.
Jared gave me a rectangle box with a blue bow on top of it. I looked over at Sam confused. He gave me a wink and then turned to Emily.
I opened the box to find a pure silver bracelet. I picked it up slowly and examined it. "Do you need help putting it on," Bella asked as she took the bracelet from hand.
After I closed the clasps on the bracelet I handed her a small her a bag.
"You shouldn't have," She chuckled.
"My mother was getting everyone gifts and I wanted to help pick some out. So I picked yours, Sam's, Embry, Emily's, and Paul's out." Leah looked into the bag and pulled out the silver wolf charm. "I remember Sam saying that your favorite animal are wolves so when I seen it I knew that I had to get it for you."
I clasped the charm onto the bracelet and let it dangle. "I'm glad that you like it."
"Hey guys you know what they same about mistletoe," my mother said from behind us. I looked over my shoulder and she was dangling a mistletoe above our heads.
At that moment I knew that I was red as a tomato. I looked as Leah who had a playful grin on her face. "We can't break tradition," Leah said softly.
She leaned towards me capturing my lips with in seconds. And at that moment it was like I knew that for the rest of my life she was going to be the most important part of it. Maybe moving here was the best thing that I could ever do...
