That If By Chance It Be Shaken
Looking at her out of the corner of his eye he watched as a smile slowly spread across her face. Her hand was out the window moving up and down as the wind blew through her finger tips, the other firmly planted on the wheel as her long strands of brown hair were wiping around. It was unseasonably warm for April and she couldn't wait to get out and explore the rez. Not wanting to miss the possibility of being alone with her, Jacob had quickly agreed when Billy asked them to run to the store for him. Back at the little red house less than ten minutes ago they were arguing over who was going to drive. When she won the second of three rounds of rock, paper, scissors, he grumbled and made his way around to the passenger side.
As he gave her directions to the market in Forks, he let his hand rest on her upper thigh, it wasn't long before her head turned toward his and they locked eyes. A smile split across her face and she winked at him. Turning back to the road he could see her brows pinch together and with a little more force than last time, she twirled a loose hair around her finger and shoved the lock behind her ears. He smiled thinking of the conversation they had when they were walking to the truck. He told her they didn't need the top off, but she insisted, it was after all one of the very rare sunny days in La Push. So for the next twenty minutes he unbolted the back top half of the 72 FJ 40 Land Cruiser telling her all the while that it was too windy; trying to make his case once again of why he should drive.
When he looked at her again the hairs that she twirled in her fingers and stuck behind her ear were about to come free, reaching his arm out he caught them. Leaning over in his seat, he made a quick small braid out of the hairs and tucked it behind her ear. When the pads of his fingers brushed the shell of her ear he felt her shutter and heard her heart skip a beat before it slowed almost back to its normal pace.
Leaning over just enough so he wouldn't have to yell, he began to tell her how happy that he was that she was here with him, and how thankful he was for her moving back to his home with him. Jake couldn't help but add that he couldn't wait to get her back to his room so they could finish what they had started when Billy had called out to them. As he slowly ran down the list of his desires and all the new things that he planned on doing to her he saw her eyes grow wide and he smiled, but when her heart began beating faster than it should have and he saw her shoulders lock, he looked up just in time to see the one thing that would send his world crashing down around him. Before he could even grab the wheel, his body was thrown forward and with a snapping of a bone his head hit metal and everything disappeared.
There are moments in life, when the heart is so full of emotion That if by chance it be shaken, or into its depths like a pebble Drops some careless word, it overflows, and its secret, Spilt on the ground like water, can never be gathered together.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
