Paul's Point of View
I didn't like this, not one bit. There was no way I was going to let this little, punk, step in, and take what belongs to me. Bella, she was mine, and by the end of the day, I'd make sure that dirty leech knew that.
Of course Bella didn't really approve of my actions, but she didn't understand, how I truly felt about even the slightest chance of losing her. I couldn't even force the thought out of me.
"Paul, would you relax dude," Jared muttered flopping down beside me with a hot dog in both hands.
I threw him a dark look, before turning my attention back to the blistering fire that sat, burning brightly in front of me.
"You know, you don't have anything to worry about, Bella imprinted on you, and you imprinted on her, nothing is going to come in between you two," Seth chirped in with a rather annoyed expression.
Hopefully, I would come into terms with this soon, so I could stop freaking out every time that leeches eyes land on my Bella. It didn't matter, he could look all he wanted, it wouldn't change anything between us… Would it?
Pain stabbed at me heart at the thought of this.
Gritting my teeth, I pushed all of this out of my head, right in time for Bella, and Amber to walk back from their discussion in the woods. Jacob followed closely behind, looking like a lost puppy.
"Welcome back ladies," Quil smirked with a wink at them.
I growled lowly, shooting him a dirty look, turning to see Jacob doing the same.
"Watch it, or I'll have you baby-sit the newbies for tomorrow afternoon," Bella said with a calm smile, walking over to me.
Without hesitation I pulled her into my lap, and locked my arms around her, holding her in place, feeling much better knowing she was back in my arms.
Quil pouted at that, and stuck his tongue out at me before taking a jog back to where the tiny table was set up, with all the hot dogs, and beer.
My eyes darted over to where Xavier slide into view, taking a seat on the other side of the fire, keeping his eyes firmly towards the ground, staying silent. The shadows of the flames danced across his skin like wild, and I narrowed my eyes as I saw his eyes slowly slide up to glance at Bella.
"What are you looking at," I stated with a clenched jaw, not at all willing to take this shit from this jerk.
"Paul, let's be cool," Sam suggested.
I ignored him, not even turning in his direction.
Bella looked up at me with wide eyes, looking so adorable, and innocent. Her dark brown eyes seemed to search mine for a long time before they went flying towards Xavier. Her delicate eye brows lifted as she glanced between the two of us.
"The fire, if that's alright with you," Xavier spoke in a calmness that didn't match his dark look towards me.
"Bullshit, I'm not stupid, I saw you," I rattled, my arms beginning to quiver from around Bella.
"Paul, this isn't the time or the place dude, chill," Jared spoke to me quickly.
Slowly I took in a breath, trying to calm myself fast before it got to bad, and I would have to get away from Bella to phase. The last thing I wanted to do was be apart from Bella for more then a few minutes, let alone however long it would take for me to calm down to turn back.
Xavier said nothing, all I noticed were his hands clenching into fists.
Hit me, I dare you to actually take a swing at me. I swear, he wouldn't live to see tomorrow.
"He was looking at Bella," Amber stated nonchalantly.
Muffles of quiet laughter, and snickers bounced around the circle.
Bella's eyes widened a bit, looking towards me nervously, before looking back at Xavier with doubtful eyes.
Xavier turned to glare at Amber, his lips moving super fast for a moment, whispering something to her that I couldn't hear.
She just smiled, not at all looking afraid, even though he looked like he was about to strangle her.
"I know, who the hell do you think you are, trying to tell me any different," I said in a low threatening voice.
Xavier now locked his gaze on me, his dark orbs piercing into mine, and at the same time, this only filled me with more anger.
"I think, I have the liberty to look at whatever, or whom ever, I wish," He stated, and again his eyes had wondered back to Bella.
The urge to hide her from sight burned at me, making the trembling in my arms to turn more rapid.
"Paul, it's alright," Bella spoke quietly to me, her hand going out to stroke my face.
Just at her touch alone I felt the rest of my fury drain out of me almost instantly.
I sighed loudly in defeat, and clutched her closer to me, kissing the top of her head.
That leech was lucky Bella had been here to stop me. I wasn't afraid to get up and beat the living hell out of him. I was actually ready to. I felt it clawing inside me. I knew it was going to happen eventually.
He was going to get to close, he was going to push me just a pinch to far, and I was going to snap. And it wasn't going to be pretty.
Amber's Point of View
As much as I loved seeing my brother crack under pressure, or squirm with embarrassment, but I didn't like how much this actually was hurting him. Emotionally,
At least the person I love… I only met once, to my knowledge; isn't in any relationships, and even better, I had no rivals for his affection.
But Xavier… it was pretty obvious that he thought was feeling something for Bella, you could see it in his eyes. There is a life there, that hadn't been there before. It was like; he was truly living, when he looked into her eyes. It made me feel as though this was a step in the right direction.
It didn't happen often that Xavier took an interest in anything. It could actually be fun to watch him actually attempt to act like a human.
Bella was a nice girl to, she wasn't a slut, or loud and annoying, and she didn't look like the kind that would take shit getting pulled on her. This was the type of girl I could get along with.
There was just one problem, well… there was three.
One, even if Bella and Xavier did get serious for each other, Xavier wouldn't get into a relationship with her, knowing he was half vampire, he wouldn't want to risk her safety. Two, if they did hook up, this would completely create chaos for the whole pack. For all of us, we would have to sit around, and listen to all this heart break, and sadness. And three, Paul. There was no way Paul would let my brother be happy with Bella, ever. I knew this myself. He had imprinted on Bella. There was no way you could break an imprint. And she had imprinted on him as well. They would forever be bonded. Paul isn't going to go anywhere.
So what did that leave me with?
Prepare yourselves La Push pack, you won't know what's gonna hit you.
