A/N: The end is here!
"Are you crazy?" Leah screamed.
"I think it's a good idea." Seth spoke up.
"See? Seth agrees." Jacob said.
"Because he's best friends' with one of them." She said as she glared at him. "He's already brainwashed like you. Did you guys forget that they're our mortal enemies?"
"The Cullens aren't our enemies." Jacob said sternly.
"Fine, maybe not them, but that doesn't mean that we have to team up. We're supposed to protect our land from their kind."
"We're on their land because we have nowhere else to go. If anything we're lucky that they even let us stay."
"This is our home now. We have to protect it just like we did La Push." Seth said.
"Are they going to be able to follow you? They don't have the pack mentality like we do." Leah argued. "What if we just end up being their guard dogs? Can we really trust them?"
"Can they trust us?" Jacob asked.
"We have to trust each other." Seth said.
"They're willing to try it. Why can't you?" Jacob asked.
"Because it sounds absurd, but whatever." She said as she crossed her arms over her chest. "I'm out numbered anyways."
"You're not going to regret it." Jacob said.
"I hope not." She said.
"Aw, don't say that." Seth said as he hugged her. "It's all going to be okay."
"Why can't you be more optimistic?" Jacob sighed.
"Because I'm going to be the one who laughs at you when it all blows up in your face." She pouted.
"Always seeing the glass half empty." Jacob shook his head as he laughed. "Come on let's go."
"Where?" Seth asked.
"Alice said to bring you back to the house when you agreed."
"When I agreed." Leah said. "I thought she couldn't see us?"
"She can't, but she just knew." Jacob said shrugging his shoulders.
"She better have not done anything weird." Leah muttered and followed behind Jacob.
Seth was already in front of them.
"You have to try to get along with them, okay?"
"I can't promise anything."
"You have to understand that this isn't easy for me. This whole thing hasn't been easy for me, okay? I'm angry all the fucking time and I don't know why. All I ever want to do is phase and rip the closest thing to me into shreds. I hate everything and everyone. Sometimes the best thing I can do is stay quiet and try to be invisible."
"Why didn't you tell me any of this earlier?" Jacob asked.
"Because everybody already felt sorry enough for me. I'm tired of the pity."
"I promise to help you through this, okay? I know what you're going through. You didn't really have any time to adjust did you?"
"No. One minute I was a wolf and then I was training to fight." She said.
"I'm going to show you to love being a wolf."
"Being away from Sam is already helping me enough."
"Trust me nothing compares to loving your wolf. It's amazing. It's like being one with the earth. It's like imprinting." Jacob said.
"You make it sound so amazing."
"It is. Why do you think that Seth is always so happy? He fucking loves it." Jacob laughed.
Leah laughed as she looked at her brother. He had already reached Alice. She felt slightly jealous of him. He had no worries at all. He just went with the flow. It seemed nice. She wanted to be like that one day, but she found it hard. How could she unlearn how to be herself? She'd always been calculating and strategical.
"Jasper is in his study." Alice said.
"Cool. I'll be over there." Seth said and sprinted towards the Cullens' home.
"I thought you wanted us all here." Jacob said confused.
"You two will do." She smiled.
"So, what are we doing?" Leah asked.
Jacob and Leah simply followed behind her confused. Alice occasionally glanced behind her giving them a big smile. Leah was sort of creeped out by it and Jacob was already used to it. Once they saw where she had lead them they both stopped.
It was a small cottage house. It screamed 'home' to them. They looked at each other in disbelief.
"Welcome to your new home." Alice said.
"Wait, what?" Jacob said.
"You'll obviously stay with Edward, but we figured Leah and Seth needed their own place. Otherwise, the house would be too crowded."
"Wow." Leah simply said.
"It's all yours."
"This is too much." Jacob said. "How? Why?"
"It came with the property. We decided to fix it up for you guys."
"Thank you." Jacob said and elbowed Leah.
"Ugh. Yeah. Thank you." She said.
"You're welcome." Alice squealed. "Now. Go check it out!"
"It your place." Jacob said and nudged Leah forward.
"I didn't know how to decorate it, but I tried my best. If you don't like anything feel free to get rid of it… Or you know what, let's consult." Alice said and pulled Leah forward.
"I'll leave you guys to it." Jacob said.
The girls were already inside and Jacob couldn't help chuckling. He knew that Alice would win over Leah soon enough. He could actually see this working out.
By the time he was back at the house, Carlisle was waiting for him.
"Jacob, I was just looking for you." He said.
"I guess we need to talk."
"Let's go into my office."
Carlisle closed the door behind him as he took a seat. Carlisle joined him.
"First off, I want you to know that I respect you. I know that I'm young… To be honest, I'm freaking out. I don't know what I'm doing. I was planning on giving you some speech about me being grown, but who am I kidding. I obviously don't know what I am doing."
"Jacob, it's okay. I understand everything. I'm glad that you're being honest with me. I don't ever want you to pretend with me."
"But I'm supposed to be an alpha… I don't know what I am doing. Maybe, I should force Sam to take Leah and Seth back." Jacob sighed as he ran his hand through his hair.
"You're just a kid, Jacob. I don't expect you to just become a leader out of nowhere. It will take time. I will grow with you and help you through this. You're not in this alone."
"I'm afraid of letting you… All of you down."
"Don't think so negatively." Carlisle said and placed a hand on his knee. "We'll make this work. But first, let's be a family."
"We don't have to worry about anything right now. When danger comes knocking at our door then we will visit the subject, but as of right now let's be a family. Me and Esme adore you guys."
"What do you mean?" Jacob asked confused.
"You're practically like a son to us and we have already welcomed Seth and Leah. I don't want this to become a business relationship."
"That's so kind of you… I don't know what to say."
"You don't have to say anything." Carlisle said.
"God, you're doing so much for us. I don't think I could ever repay you." Jacob whispered almost ashamed as he looked away.
"Jacob, just accept it as a gift from us. You don't repay gifts. We want this as much as you do."
"Thank you." Jacob said and embraced Carlisle in a hug.
"I did want to talk about something else."
"What are your plans for your future?" He asked.
"Uh, I haven't thought about that in a long time. I've never seen beyond my duties as a wolf." Jacob said honestly as he shrugged his shoulders.
"I would really like you to consider continuing with your studies. The others will soon enough start college and we have at least another good five years before the locals start questioning our age. Would you consider enrolling?"
"I don't have that kind of money…"
"Of course we would pay for it."
"That's too much." Jacob said almost angered as he stood up. "I really appreciate it, but I can't take more from you guys."
"Like I said, we want to do this. We want what is best for all of you."
"You must not have much to do with your money if you are just throwing it away."
"No, Jacob, we are investing. We are investing in your future."
"Why?" Jacob asked.
"Because we want to." Carlisle said with a smile as he placed his hand on his shoulder. "Think about it. The same goes to Leah and Seth."
"I could never thank you enough."
"It's not needed." Carlisle said and gave him a quick hug. "Glad we had this talk. I have a night shift at the hospital."
"I should get going then." Jacob said. "I'll make sure to let Leah and Seth know."
Jacob took his leave then and walked to Edward's room. He was in shock as he collapsed on the bed. He had too much to think about. Things he hadn't dared think about before. He had always assumed he wouldn't have much of a career, but now it was offered to him. He wanted to take it and run with it, but he wondered what he should study. His first thought was opening his own mechanic shop, but he could do much more. Maybe he could try something new, something he didn't think he could do.
'I could be a teacher… A doctor, A lawyer, A dentist, A writer, An archeologist… The possibilities are endless… What do I want to be?' Jacob thought as he constantly rubbed his face.
He began to think about Leah and Seth. This would be amazing for them. Leah had dropped out of college. She didn't really have much of a choice. She had come down for her father's funeral. Jacob hadn't been there, but Sam had explained what happened. Leah was overcome by grief that it activated her wolf gene. So, it was no surprise that she didn't go back to school. Everything else had followed after that.
Jacob was glad that Leah now had the opportunity to live her life. He felt the same about Seth. He was barely finishing his first year of high school, but he knew that Seth was a smart kid. Despite the newborn battle his grades never faltered and never once asked for the special treatment like the others did. Jacob was even guilty of that. He took advantage and took a test to graduate high school instead of actually attending.
'Could I go back to school? I don't even remember what if felt to be a normal teen… How could I possibly be a college student?'
"Jake, what are you thinking about so intently?" Edward asked as he sat down next to him.
"Just read my mind."
"I would rather you told me."
"Life… I'm thinking about life and it's giving me a headache." Jacob sighed as he sat up.
"Carlisle talked to you didn't he?" He asked.
"I know it's a lot to take in. I agree with him. He sees your potential. I also wouldn't like to see you waste away your life…"
"You want to make a good man out of me?" Jacob joked.
"You're already a good man."
"Weeks ago I was just a kid. What changed?"
"I must confuse you… I'm sorry. It's just that sometimes I forget that you're just a kid. You're seventeen. You shouldn't be dealing with all this… Like you said yourself, but you handle it the best way you can. That makes you a man. The way you act differentiates you from a kid to a man."
"But becoming a man comes responsibility… Is it too childish of me to say that I don't want to grow up? I don't want to think about my future. I don't know what I want to be… The only thing that makes sense right now is you. You're my future."
"Then what do you want to do?" Edward asked.
"Can I just take a break? Give me at least a year and then ask me again, yes?"
"Alright, but in one condition."
"What condition?" Jacob asked skeptically.
"You travel with me."
"Everywhere." Edward said and took his hand in his. "I want to show you the world and I don't care if it takes more than a year."
"Are you serious?"
"Very." Edward said.
Jacob let out a small laugh and then launched himself on Edward. He crawled on top of him and rested his head on his chest. He felt Edward's chest vibrate as he laughed.
"I'm completely spoiled." Jacob said and sat up straddling Edward's lap. "I fucking love you."
Edward reached up and pulled him down. Jacob was surprised by the kiss, but gladly accepted it.
"I love you, too." Edward whispered against his lips.
Jacob froze and stared at Edward in disbelief. He wanted to pinch himself, but he knew this was real life… this was his life. He smiled the biggest smile and covered his face in embarrassment.
"I'm so happy that it hurts." Jacob said.
Edward pulled down his hands and kissed his tears. Jacob let out a small laugh before meeting his lips. They kissed as if they've never kissed before. Jacob desperately wanted to connect in this very moment. He felt it within him and let his hunger take over. Edward slipped his hands under his shirt and racked them along his back. Jacob groaned and slipped his own hands under Edward's shirt caressing his chiseled chest. Before Jacob knew it they were both without shirts hungrily eating at each other. Their erections painfully trapped within their pants.
Without breaking their heated kisses they pulled apart enough to unbuckle their pants. Jacob fell back as Edward climbed on top of him. Jacob helped Edward slip of their pants along with their underwear. They were naked and in much need of friction. They both hummed as their bodies collided. Jacob could hardly breath as he let Edward keep assaulting his mouth. His lips felt swollen and it slightly stung, but in an amazing way. When Jacob couldn't take it anymore he pulled away to breath heavily. Edward sucked on his neck trailing his cold kisses down. Jacob was dazed in passion as Edward kissed every inch of his body.
He finally reached where Jacob hoped he was going. There was no foreplay he simply took him into his mouth. Jacob let out a strangling moan at the sudden coldness around him. Edward ran his hands along Jacob's thighs and up his abs. He continuously racked his fingers making Jacob squirm. He began to pump himself into Edward's mouth. Edward let him for a bit, but then quickly gripped Jacob by his hips and pinned him to the bed. Jacob pulled up anyways and Edward used extra strength. Jacob hissed at the pressure, but in a good way. It was then that Jacob realized he liked things a little painful.
He was drowning in pleasure and Edward kept him still. Soon enough he was pushing him over the edge. Not knowing what to do himself Jacob locked his fingers in Edward's hair as he gave him an extra push. He came instantly.
Jacob was barely recovering when he sat up pushing Edward back. He kissed his lips softly and nibbling on his bottom lip. While Edward was hard, Jacob liked to be soft. He placed kisses along his neck as he gave him playful bites. He captured Edward's earlobe and he began to squirm. Jacob made a note to remember that. He continued down encircling his nipples with his tongue. He sucked gently and then hard until they were puckered. Edward sat back as Jacob reached his stomach. He squirmed once again as Jacob kissed his sides.
Jacob held a smile as he reached his destination. He placed a kiss on the tip. He looked up to see that Edward had his bottom lip in his mouth. He was torturing him, but Jacob loved it. Edward opened his eyes confused as to why Jacob had stopped. But once Jacob had his attention he began. Jacob realized that he liked to be watched, too.
He ran his tongue along the length before taking it into his mouth. Edward let out breathy moans as he looked at Jacob work his mouth. He watched as his head bobbed up and down. Jacob enjoyed the feel of his eyes on him as he worked faster. He used his hand to help bring Edward to release. He hollowed his cheeks as he intensified the pressure. Edward released his lip as he groaned. Jacob flicked his wrist a couple more times and Edward was cumming.
Jacob joined Edward as he rested his head on his shoulder. Edward pulled him for a kiss and smiled at him.
"I think… I'm really happy, too." Edward said.
"Good." Jacob said and got up. "Let's take a shower."
"Hell yeah." Jacob said as he pulled Edward off the bed.
The warm water fell on them as they lathered each other after another round. Jacob turned around allowing Edward to wash his hair. He rested completely against him as Edward tugged at his hair lightly.
"You like that?" Edward asked.
"It feels good." Jacob sighed.
"Okay, let's get out of here."
"I don't want to." Jacob whined.
"You've had a long day. You're tired." Edward said as he turned him around allowing the water to rinse the shampoo off.
Jacob let Edward finish as he got out the shower. He was already dry and had a towel wrapped around him when Edward stepped out.
"What's your opinion on sex?" Jacob asked suddenly.
"What do you mean?" Edward asked amused as he dried himself.
"Well, do you want to have sex? I mean… I do. I just want to know where we're at with that."
"I've thought about it, but…"
"Is it because I'm a guy?"
"Trust me. That's not an issue anymore." Edward said and wrapped his arms around him. "I just feel that sex is something important. I just don't want it to happen simply because we're horny."
"I'm ready to have sex. It's something I've been thinking about lately."
"I know." Edward laughed as he placed a kiss on his cheek. "What I mean is that it's important to me. Back in my day you saved that for your significant other."
"Yeah… I know it sounds stupid especially after all we've done, but sex is different."
"I get it." Jacob said as they walked back into the room. "So, is that something you want?"
"Sex or marriage?"
"Both I guess." Jacob said as he sat down.
"Don't take me wrong…"
"I know. Don't worry." Jacob said with a smile. "I know you love me and I can wait."
"You sure?" Edward asked surprised.
"Yup, but you bet I'm going to try once in a while. So, you better tie that chastity belt good or I might break it." Jacob joked.
"You're going to be the death of me."
"I hope not."
"I love you." Edward said.
"I'll never get tired of hearing that."
"I hope not." Edward said.
They laughed as they kissed. They fell back on the bed and their towels came undone. They were ready for round three.
"I can get used to this." Jacob said.
"You better." Edward laughed. "You're not getting anything more until we have rings on our hands."
A/N: OMG! I actually ended a story! I'm so excited and I'm looking forward to your feedback.
It's been four years in the making! Though one year doesn't count. For 2014 I only updated once. Sorry you guys had to wait so long. Finally, it has come to an end. Yay! For a happily ever after ending, right? Hope you guys feel the same way.
Anyways, I am planning on doing a little spin off. Yup, two characters are going to get their own story where Edward and Jacob will pop up once in a while. Keep and eye out for that. Meanwhile, guess on who those characters are :P
Well, I want to thank those who stuck around until the end. I would have lacked the motivation to continue otherwise. I can't believe this story got a nomination! And people actually voted. None of this would have been possible without you guys.
