Chapter 9


Paul has been great the last few weeks. I could see how easy it would be to love him. For starters he is gorgeous and incredibly sexy. Once he broke down his walls and we started to talk I realized he wasnt the macho bad boy he always tried to be. He lost his parents when he was a teenager and has been living on his own since then. He didnt like being a wolf when he first phased, but now that he realizes he is helping people and has me as an imprint he likes it much better.

About that. I find it almost impossible to be mad at him. The pull is so strong that even coming here every other day wasnt good enough anymore. We meet everyday either at his house or he comes over to mine. My dad is not crazy about him, but he knows how important it is for him to be part of my life. Paul has even started to get along with Jake better. He has taken me on picnics, out for dinner and brings me flowers whenever he comes to my house, which is every other day. I hate to admit it, but I really think I am starting to fall in love with him. I just dont want him to know that yet. He is very patient and tells me everyday how much he loves me, I just am not ready to cave.

A few weeks have passed and we had a moment that nearly knocked my socks off. We went to a bonfire to celebrate Embry imprinting on Sabrina's sister. All the couples started dancing and Paul asked me to dance. I thought he was crazy at first with how clumsy I am, but he said I had nothing t worry about and he wouldn't let me fall. We started dancing and at first it was a little awkward, but as we got more comfortable we started moving closer to each other. Soon enough I was in his arms and he was singing to me as we danced. Cross My Heart by George Strait was playing and I swear in that moment that song was made for us.

Our love is unconditional, I knew it from the start. I see it in your eyes. You can feel it from my heart. From here on after lets stay the way we are right now. And share all the love and laughter that a lifetime will alllow. I cross my heart and promise to give all I've got to give to make all your dreams come true. In all the world you'll never find a love thats true as mine.

It was there and then that I knew I could no longer hide how I felt from Paul. It was like this moment was made for us to confess our love to each other. Without warning he leaned down towards my face and kissed me. It was better than any kiss Jake and I had shared. He grazed my lips with his at first and then deepened it licking my lips begging for entrance. After fighting it for a little while I finally gave in and he slipped his tongue into my mouth. He tasted like heaven. I felt a jolt from the tip of my head to the bottom of my feet. I swear I think the DJ on the radio knew what we were thinking. The next song was perfect.

Baby fall into my kiss. It should just happen like this. Trust it so much that there's no else around but us. This moment that says its so right, cause thats all we have in this life. Drink up this love baby give it all we've got tonight.

I couldn't hold it in anymore.

"Paul...I tried so hard to fight this. It was the last thing I thought I wanted, but now that it has happened I don't know how I didnt realize how natural this is between us. I love you Paul Lahote"
