As I pulled into Jacob's driveway I smiled as I watched him emerge from the garage with a huge smile.
As I cut the engine Jacob opened my door, and had me in his arms in seconds.
"Bella, were have you been?" He asked sounding overjoyed that I was here. I laughed at that, surprising myself when I did so, I haven't even smiled in months.
"I just thought we could hang out if that's ok with you, I mean if you're not busy." I said with a hopeful smile.
Jacob beamed as he let me go.
"Of course!" He said eagerly.
I grinned, I knew I could depend on Jake, I had to get to Edward some way, he would understand. I slowly walked him to the back of my truck, and moved the tarp out of the way so he could see the bikes.
He looked at the bikes then at me with a raised brow.
"Thanks for the scrap metal." He chuckled as he looked over the bikes.
"I was hoping you could help me fix them up enough to ride." I said trying not to sound despite. He slowly nodded as he looked at me.
"Alright, let's get fixing then." He said easily.
I looked at him shocked, but thrilled.
"Really, thanks jake!" I said giving him another hug, which he welcome instantly.
"Hey Jake!" Two male voices said causing me to quickly let go of Jake, and in the direction of the voices. Two tall, dark-skinned boys came running over, pausing right in front of us; huffing, and puffing.
The one was slender, and almost as tall as Jacob. His black hair was chin-length, and parted down the middle, one side tucked behind his ear, while the other side hung free.
The shorter boy was more burly. His white T-shirt stained over his well-developed chest, and he seemed gleefully conscious of that fact. His hair was so short it was almost a buzz, but was still as dark as the other boy's hair.
The thin boy stopped short as he saw me, and glanced swiftly between Jacob, and I. The brawny boy kept his eyes on me, a slow smile spreading across his face.
"What's up guys?" Jacob asked looking nonchalantly as he turned to face them. "Hey Jake," The short when said without looking away from me. I smiled in response, he grin was so impish. When I did he winked at me.
"Quil, Embry—this is my friend Bella." Jacob said looking between both of the boys with a look I didn't recognize.
The brawny one put his hand out to me with a slick smile. I took it trying not to laugh at his grin.
"Nice to meet you, I'm Quil Ateara." He announced grandly before releasing my hand. "Nice to meet Quil." I said with a smile.
"Hey, Bella. I'm Embry, Embry Call—you probably already figured that out though." Embry smiled a shy smile and waved with one hand, which he then shoved back into his jeans pocket.
"Nice to meet you to." I said, then glanced back to Jacob.
"So what did you guys want exactly?" Jake asked looking curiously at both of them.
They both glanced at each other before Quil spoke up.
"Sam invited us all to a little party on First beach, and we were wondering if you wanted to go to." Embry said with a shrug.
I watched as Jacob froze, and a slight frown came to his face.
"Why would you want to go to one of his parties?" He asked lowly, and I could tell Jacob wasn't happy about this.
"It's no big deal Jake it's just you know his parties are the best, and we've never been invited, Sam might not be as bad as we think." Quil said looking hopeful.
Jacob sighed, and looked down at his feet as he leaned against my truck in deep thought.
"Bella can come to." Quil offered wagging his brows at me. I bit my lip to hold back a laugh at that. Jacob looked up at the both of them in annoyance.
"Alright fine, we'll go." He said, but them looked at me. "Unless you don't want to go Bella."
"Sounds like fun to me, I could use a good party at the moment." I shrugged.
Quil, and Embry hi-fived each other with excitement.
"Then come on let's get down there before the party starts without us." Quil said eagerly, and they both began to walk away.
Jacob and I followed after them, Jacob grumbling the whole way there, I wonder why Jacob is so against going to Sam's parties, or pretty much want nothing to do with him.
Too late to ask him now, because as soon as we made it to the beach the music turned all the way up, and people began to dance. I was shocked at what I saw.
A whole group of guys, all shirtless, only was wearing pants, and all sporting the same tattoo. Quil, Embry, Jacob, and I were the only ones not really fitting in here, especially me with my pale skin.
There was three huge tables full of food of all kinds, there was a big ring of firewood set up in the shape of a teepee, and a few foldable chairs sitting around it. A big stereo was setting out on one of the table, playing 'Put it down on me' from '50 Cent'.
I watched amused as Quil, and Embry jumped right into dancing with the rest of the guy, and I glanced over to Jacob looking at the table of food.
"Wanna grab a snack?" I asked loud enough for him to hear me over the music. Jacob eagerly nodded with a grin, and pulled me over to the table. After watching Jake eat three hotdogs in almost one bite I could tell that the other guys we're slowing down.
Sam walked over to us, with another guy by his side.
"Hello Jacob, Bella, hope you're having a good time." He said with a nice smile, and we both nodded, Jacob more reluctantly then me.
"I'd like you to meet Jared." Sam said pointing to the kid beside him.
Jared smiled at us both with a big smile. "Nice to meet you." He said, you could tell just by the look of him he was the joker of all of the guys.
"Paul is around here somewhere as well." Sam said looking around, and just like that a boy came stomping over with a raised brow as he glanced at Jacob, then looked at Sam.
"Someone say my name?" He asked, and I took this moment to look him over. He was beautiful, absolutely perfect. His dark brown hair was short, soft-looking, and his piercing eyes were so dark it was almost black. He was well-built, and had this tough look to him that was intimidating, and attractive.
My insides began to tangle together as I watched him, frozen were I stood, I didn't understand what was happening, but I couldn't fight it, I couldn't even move.
"Yes, Paul this is Bella." Sam said pointing over to where Jacob and I was standing, with an easy smile.
Paul turned his dark eyes to mine, and just like that they locked to mine, and I could feel myself floating. Heat rushing through me quickly, taking my breath away, and leaving me in awe as the pain that had been in my chest for months vanished. The absence of pain was the first thing I could think of, but as I stared back into Paul's eyes I felt my heart swell with emotions I thought I would never feel again.
"Fuck." Paul stormed, and backed away slowly from us when his eyes finally slid from mine.
"What is it Paul?" Sam asked looking concerned, Jared sharing the look with confusion. Paul grumbled something lowly to them that I couldn't hear, and I watched as they both laughed.
"It's not fucking funny, what the hell am I going to do, I want out of this." Paul snarled as he glared at the both of them.
"Afraid that's not possible." Sam said with a smile, and then he glanced to me looking amused.
"Bella come on over here." Sam said waving his hand to me eagerly. Paul shook his head violently, and backed away more.
I did what Sam said confused, and half afraid of what Paul would do once I got to close to him, would he explode or something?
Sam gently took my hand, keeping a look at Paul with a smug smile, and I strange feeling came over me, like I wanted to just rip my hand away, and run away.
Paul's eyes snapped to Sam's like razors, looking furious as he hissed something out at Sam, I still couldn't hear.
Sam let my hand go laughing with Jared again, and Paul looked away in annoyance, and anger.
"Come on Bella, let's dance." Jared suggested, and just like that they both pulled me to where the music was still blasting. Jacob followed behind shocked, and a little irrigated.
We all began to dance together, and I had to admit it was a lot of fun, I really let go, and was having a good time. Paul kept his eyes on me the whole time, looking somewhat protective, and never danced to far from me.
Something told me that something happened when Paul was looking at me, and I was going to find out.
