Thank you for all of the reviews! I am eternally grateful to all of my readers! I am updating this story before my others because I can see everyone is worried about what Jake's secret.
For those who have read my stories before, when have I ever written a story where Jake and Bella don't end up together? Never! No matter what you read, please don't lose hope in this story.
Is everyone ready for Jake's secret to be revealed? Well, here it comes!
I slammed my fist softly against the door of Bella's bedroom.
"Bells, come on! Let me in!" I could hear her crying on the other side of the door. I hated that I had done that to her, but I had to make this easier on her. A pregnancy was not something that would make this easier on her.
I hated myself for what I was doing to Bella and Angela. They both deserved better, but I was a selfish piece of shit. I hated myself more every minute, but I couldn't give up either of them. I loved both of them to death. It would be impossible to get rid of Angela. She was my imprint. I imprinted on her when I saw her for the first time outside of the Cullen's, for the graduation party.
The instant it happened, I hated myself. I was tearing these girls apart and It was all my fault.
Why did I have to go to that graduation party? If I hadn't, Angela and Ben would still be happy, Bella and I would be perfectly happy with our baby on the way... Everything would be perfect.
"Jake, go away and leave me alone!" I sighed and saw a piece of her shirt under the door. I reached over and rubbed the material, sighing.
"Baby, I'm sorry. Please, just let me in." I knew Bella. I knew she was stubborn about the baby. She would keep it no matter what I said. "I'm just... I'm an ass, honey. Please, open the door." I heard her sigh and then she got up, opening the door. She had tears streamed down her face.
I was an ass.
"Baby, please, let me in. Let's talk about this before either of us does anything stupid." She sighed and gave in, opening it to let me in. I walked in and pulled her into my arms. Her arms stayed limp at her side as she looked into my eyes with heartbreak in them.
"I'm not aborting my pregnancy, Jake. If you want nothing to do with me or the babies because of whatever is your problem is, then that is fine by me, but I won't throw away this miracle because you suddenly don't feel right about me having your babies." That finally hit me. Why was she saying that word?
"Did you say 'babies'?" She nodded and tried to looked away, but I could see she couldn't.
"Yeah, triplets." She crossed her arms and finally looked away.
I couldn't believe that she thought this had to do with her actually carrying our babies. This had nothing to do with our babies. If I had to be truthful, it was all because of my imprint. It had nothing to do with anything else. I just wanted it to be as easy as possible for her when she finally found out about the imprint.
I planned to tell her, but not yet. I wasn't ready to be without her just yet.
"You think they are a miracle?" I couldn't believe this. She was really into us starting a family together.
"Of course, they are. They wouldn't exist if the pharmaceutical company hadn't made that mix up. They are miracles. They were meant to be." Wow! I really wanted to do a happy dance from this. "I just don't understand why you can't see this." She had tears fall down her face as she looked down at my chest, sniffling. "You said you wanted us to have a family and suddenly you don't anymore. Is it me? Is it that you don't want a baby with me?" I wrapped my arm around her waist and lead her to the bed, both of us sitting at the foot. I placed a chaste kiss on her forehead and pulled her into my arms while she cried.
"No, honey. That is not it at all. I am happy that you are pregnant." She looked up at me with shock and instantly stopped her crying.
"You are?" I smiled down at her and reached over, rubbing my hand across her stomach.
"Of course, I am." I studied her face and she was literally glowing. She was so beautiful. "Honey, I just wanted us to dscuss our options. A baby alonne is a lot for a couple to take in. It changes everything. Three is an entirely different story. It's going to be very hard to take care of them. We are both very young and we would barely make ends meat with three babies. Do you understand me, Bells?" She sighed and nodded.
"Yes, I do, but I'm not getting rid of them, Jake. I... I already love them even though I don't know them."I just smiled at her as she clasped her hand over mine.
"I know you do, baby. You realize this will be very hard on you? Your first pregnancy being triplets?" She nodded and smiled at me.
"They will be worth it, Jake. I know they will." I lightly chuckled and couldn't help the huge grin spread across my face.
"I know they will, too, Bells. I don't feel riht leaving you alone while you are pregnant, honey." She smiled up at me, a hint of pride shining in her eyes.
"Then, don't leave me alone." I rolled my eyes and hugged her closer to me.
"Honey, I have to patrol. I should leave soon. If you are going to stay here tonight, at least have Virginia or Emily stay with you... Or ask Jessica to come over? Please?" There was a hint of sadness in her eyes as she looked down at her lap.
"I would call Angela, but she is continuing to blow me off. I miss her. She spends all of her damn time with her boyfriend in La Push." Oh, shit!
"What boyfriend?" She looked to me confused.
"Jess talked to Ben and he said she dumped him for some guy in La Push. I thought you would know who it was." I knew I had to make a quick lie.
"Yeah... I just completely blanked. I wasn't sure they were dating, but now I know they are." She nodded and seemed to buy it.
"I miss her." I needed to keep the subject off of my imprint or my wolf just might cause me to clam up and distance from the one the man wanted more than anyone in the world.
"So, do you want to tell the news to the pack now or later?" She smiled up at me with the change of subject and nodded happily. I was so glad I could still make her smile like that.
"Now would be a good time. Either way they are going to see it in your head later." I just rolled my eyes. I had gotten pretty good at hiding my thoughts to the point that the only pack member that knew about my imprint was Sam. After I imprinted, I took my place as Alpha, which I had regretted to inform Bella of, so I ordered Sam not to think of it at all.
"Sure, sure. Come on, baby." She nodded and I grabbed her hand, heping her stand up. I carefully lead her down the stairs, making sure that she did not slip or strain herself. I knew I was being overprotective, but I wanted nothing to happen to the babies.
We got to the kitchen where everyone was still munching on the cake. I whistled and all of their heads snapped in my direction.
"Everyone, we have an announcement to make." I knew she had told the girls, but the guys had to have no clue about what we were going to say. "Bella's pregnant." A loud howl erupted through the room and the look on Paul's face was both heart-breaking and made me growl lightly at him.
No one knew it, but me. Paul was jealous that I got Bella pregnant and not him. That's right. You heard me. Paul Lahote wanted to impregnate my girlfriend because not only did he have a crush on her. No, ladies and gentlemen, he had IMPRINTED on my girlfriend.
It made me angry every time I saw Paul. It didn't happen the first time he saw her or the second or the third or even for a long time after that. It happened the same night that I imprinted on Angela.
I catch myself thinking that maybe he supposed to save her after the news of my imprint finally is given to her. We live in a small community. News has known to travel fast about that stuff. Bella deserved the truth, but I was too much of a coward to lose her like that.
It was bound to happen one day, but I refused to let it be today.
"Congradulations, Jake and Bella!" Jared jumped up and twirled Bella around in a hug, causing her to shriek.
I lightly growled and he put her down, putting his hands up. "Geez, Jake!" Bella lightly smacked my chest and then hugged me. I chuckled and hugged her back, kissing her forehead.
"Bella, tell them the other part." Virginia looked to Bella and I was confused. What other part?
Bella took a deep breath and spoke the word slowly, "Triplets." Everyone let out a laugh and Bella shined her undeniable smile. I was glad that her pregnancy made her so happy.
"I hate to break up this moment, but we have patrol, Jake." Paul stood up and started for the door. I groaned and gently kissed her lips.
"I'll see you tomorrow, baby." She nodded and kissed me back.
"I can't wait." I gave her my signature smile and lightly pecked her forehead before heading towards the door throwing an 'I love you' over my shoulder.
The only person better at shielding their thoughts than me would be Paul. He somehow could force a shield around his mind which could be felt through the pack mind. Only once in a blue moon would something slip.
Maybe it had something to do with his imprint to my Bells? Her leech couldn't read her thoughts. Maybe that was it?
I know its short and sloppy, but I thought you readers deserved something for being so kind and gentle. Please, leave me lots of reviews. Thanks.
