I've had a bored day…so heres chapter 15!
By the way, I'm sorry that this story wasn't going anywhere but now I know for SURE.
Preview: "Tell me what the hell is going on."
Jacob looked surprised. "Okay, Bella. Before you freak out, let's move to the couch. It may take awhile to explain."
Not responding I headed down the hall way. Jacob walked in front of me to lead the way. He took a sharp turn and walk right into the living room.
Jacob took a deep breath before he started. "You and Paul have a connection that is rare in the pack…in all of La Push. It first started with Awenasa. Awenasa was a young girl from an island who had come to visit her aunt who was dying from an infection in her heart. They say it was fate, but the Alpha of the wolf pack at the time, Akecheta. Akechta was helping her aunt into her bed when Awenasa walked in. Akecheta imprinted on her from the very first sight of her.
Soon after Akechta married Awenasa, an unexpected Cold One appeared. With Awenasa missing her imprinter, it caused an ache in her chest. The ache was so hard it caused Awenasa fall down in pain. Akechta, in his wolf form, had felt this very pain and ran home immediately. Akechta means My Fighter and Awenasa means My Home. This imprint couple is called the Protector. You and Paul are the only couple to ever experience this…but did you feel the ache in your chest?"
"I did." My voice was horse from the emotions that were rushing through my body. "It was like a bad heart burn."
Jacob nodded. "You need to avoid that ache, Bella. Not just for Paul. But for the sake of the Protector."
"I'll try, Jake…I'll truly try." I said honestly, shaking my head.
Paul screamed again.
I shook off the need to go see him. "You never told me what happened."
Jacob sighed. "Vampire. Paul didn't have his head in the game, that's all it took."
I was grateful he didn't go into detail. "Do you think its safe to go back there?"
"I'm sure their done adjusting his bones. Go ahead." He stood up and walked to the back door.
"Oh, Jacob?" I called. He turned around. "Thank you." Jacob nodded and went outside.
Remembering where Jacob took me from, I walked back to the room. The house was filled with pictures of a man and a woman and their parents. Plants were scattered around the house to give it a comforting feeling.
I knocked on the door. "Come in." I heard a voice say.
I walked in to see Paul was still the same way as when I left, as well as the guys around him. "Bella," I looked at the man who pulled me out of the way when Paul was hurting. "I'm Sam Uley. This is Jared, Embry and Quil." I nodded at them as they said hi. "I'll just leave you two to talk. Come on guys," Sam motioned them to come with him.
The door shut and I was met with silence. Paul hadn't said anything ever since his scream. I moved to sit down to the chair across the room when I heard him sigh. "I was thinking about you, you know." He said, looking at the ceiling.
"You shouldn't have." I spoke with a grim tone. He shouldn't think about me when he was fighting the Cold Ones…whatever they were.
"How can I, Bella?" He asked, frustrated. "How can I when your voice is constantly in my head nagging me? When it's showing me what I can't have? When all I can think about is that you're safe? That you haven't tried to throw yourself off the cliffs? Please tell me, Bella, because I'm dying to know." He huffed
"And it's not just because I imprinted on you, so don't even go there. Because without the imprint, Bella…I would have fallen in love with you anyways. You treat me like everybody else, you put up with my jokes and anger problems…you make me feel like I was before all this shit happened." Paul paused. "It just hurts so damn much when you yell at me because I know I deserve it…it's just…I'm not use to it. I just don't get why you don't love me."
I was beyond shocked. "Paul," I hesitated. "I-I don't know what to say…I mean, I know that you love me...but it's just..I'm afraid to love" I whispered. "It has nothing to do with you or my hatred of imprinting…it's the fact that I won't be as great as Jessica, I'll get on your nerves and make you scream but Paul, I do love you. I love your smile, your eyes, how your dimple on your left cheek come out when you laugh to hard, when you scream at me and somehow you still make me laugh then. I do love you, Paul." I looked down, embarrassed that I had just let out my deepest secrets.
"Swan, get over here." He said with a slight smile.
I walk over to him, he patted the bed for me to join him, and so I lay down with Paul in the bed. It was super hot but as long as he was here. I didn't care.
He tilted my head up so I looked right into his eyes. "I love you, Bella." With that I felt his lips on mine again. Kissing Paul would never get old, even when I'm 97 years old, I would kiss him gratefully. I made sure I didn't hit him with my cast as I tangled my hands in his hair.
He pulled back and started kissing my neck, "I love you, Paul."
He pulled back again and looked into my eyes. "Say it again." He smiled a 100 watt smile.
"I love Paul Meraz." I giggled.
"Again." He said and bent down to kiss me again.
"Paul!" I slapped his shoulder that wasn't wrapped.
"I'm never goanna get tired of hearing that." He stated. "Even if your foot is hitting my leg."
"Oh crap! Sorry," I said while moving my foot.
He laughed and kissed me again but I pulled back before he could meet my lips. "Paul," I paused. "What's the Cold Ones?"
