Friendly Desires: A Different Imprint Story
A beautiful and rich girl moves to La Push, but what happens when Seth Clearwater imprints on her? Love right away? Or not?
A huge wolf stood in front of me, his fur was sandy colored. I felt a sudden pull towards it.
I wanted to reach out and touch it.
I went closer, close enough that we stood at normal human distance, adrenaline pulsed through me.
I moved my hand through the soft fur and stared into the light brown eyes, suddenly too intelligent for a beast.
I was lost, I felt elated.
Chapter 1: Talk time.
I sat staring out of the window from my room of our New York apartment, the view was simply beautiful, though it was busy and happening I found some peace looking down on the moving city. The apartment where I stayed was huge, dad was an advertising executive, he had his own company which took up products and advertise them in various ways. This was a rich business and dad of course made millions of money in this way, most of the time they hired actors to do a particular add, I had their autographs. It was a traveling job; dad had to travel all around the world, and it was kinda good for both of us. For him because it was his business and he loved doing it and for me because I got to meet actors and also travel around the world with him during vacation. Speaking of vacation, wonder where we will be going this time, my exams were almost over, I had one more left, tomorrow it will all be over and I will turn into a sophomore from a freshman. I sighed; we also had to stay in school after the exams, as my school was taking up an environment program so the principal wanted to enlighten us on saving our environment. I was very much enthusiastic about it; I badly wanted to save our environment. And later our group would be going to party, the same usual stuff. I sighed again.
“There’s lots of sighing going on huh?” I heard a voice, it was Antony of course.
Antony, well he is my care-taker, actually more than that and almost everything, he has been with me and dad since I was 5. We used to stay in Italy when he joined us. Dad had been to Italy to do a particular project, there he met mom, yeah my mom’s an Italian, and they immediately fell in love and got married. They decided to stay in Italy for a while, and then I was born. Everything had been going well till I was 3 or 4 and then the usual bickering turned into huge fights, they didn’t want me to be subjected to their fights so they hired a ‘nanny’ for me. Not just a usual nanny, dad wanted some one really capable who could take care of me in every way, so he contacted an American agency and they sent Antony to us. I m glad dad didn’t want a usual nannies, Antony is the best! Then things became worse and they, that is my mom and dad had to separate, it was harsh for me, I loved my mom and wanted her to be with me, but no she left us, she didn’t even care for my feelings. Since then Antony is with us. He is always with me; dad usually has to go away for business trips but Antony never. He is my best friend, cook, body guard, and my family. I love him.
“Yeah, it’s the last day of school.” I said looking at him.
“You didn’t study for the exam right?” he teased me.
“Antony, its Art tomorrow, and you know I m pro at that,” I laughed.
“Ah! Be modest!” he teased again.
“By the way, don’t you know you should knock before entering someone’s room?” I teased him back.
“I keep forgetting ma’am,” he said with a sarcastic smile.
“Manner’s are very important mister!” I pretended to scold him.
“Yeah sure, dinner’s ready come-on.” He laughed and went out.
“Okay,” I said and went over to my washroom and washed my face with cold water. I changed into sweatpants and a tank top and went over to the dining table.
I went over and sat on my chair, and Antony joined me.
“Where’s dad?” I asked while serving myself dinner.
“It seems he will be late tonight, Miss Wills left a message.” He replied.
“Oh, okay.” I said. Miss Wills was dad’s secretary. She had been with dad for ten years.
“Yummy noodles,” I commented.
“Thanks, I m good at everything you see.” He said.
“Now look who is not being modest!” I raised my eye brows.
“Okay, okay.” He said and then we continued to have dinner in silence.
After finishing the dinner, I put my plate in the sink.
“Good night Tony,” I said and yawned.
“Yeah night’,” he replied with a smile.
I went over to my room and cuddled up in my bed, I checked my cell. I hadn’t got any messages or calls so I set an alarm and closed my eyes thinking about next day. Soon, I fell asleep.
My shift had just ended.
‘Night guys,’ I thought and phased back to human form. I wore my clothes in swift moment and headed to my house, I was damn tired. Nothing was going on in La Push or the Cullens’ territory; it had been a year since the fight against the Volturi had taken place for Nessie. To keep the college charade the Cullens had left for New Hampshire after one month, and Jacob had left with them. Though he joined us in wolf form it was never the same, he had made Leah his beta. And now they were returning at last! Their college year had ended, to meet Charlie and us.
I entered my house, it was dark. Probably mom and Leah were already in bed. I grabbed my self a snack and headed to my room. I went and lay on my bed. I didn’t feel sleepy any more! Come-on, I should! I m damn tired, I need to sleep. I just kept tossing and turning, I got irritated and got of the bed, climbed through the window and sat on the roof staring at the moon. I felt very lonely, everyone had an imprint and they were damn happy, everyone but Leah and I. A year had passed and I had seen many new girls in school but I never imprinted on them, Leah had gotten past her self, being a beta and away from Sam and his mind had made her better. Better not back to her old self. I had started to question myself, were Leah and I genetic end? Was that the reason we hadn’t imprinted? Ugh! The guys had also asked me to start dating some one and there were many girls who wanted me, being a wolf had made me handsome and wanted. But I didn’t want anyone except ‘her’. Then I sat staring at the moon blankly, not wanting to allow negative thought rule over me. Minutes passed…
I yawned once and then twice and then thrice.
“Time to go to bed Seth,” I said to myself and headed back inside.
As soon my head hit the bed, my eyes closed and I was drawn into deep sleep. That night, I dreamed of ‘her’. I had never seen her before. She was more than beautiful, her eyes were dark brown, her brown hair was long and shiny and her lips were shaped into a smile. She came over to me and moved her hand across my face, my breathing increased. Her soft lips touched my cheek, I moved my hand to hold her, but suddenly I was all alone. She had vanished my sight, reach and touch. Everything went blank and the dream changed into nothingness.
Chapter 1: Talktime
wow... i'm new to this...
but i really like seth.. so i think i'm gonna like this......
They really need to break up!!
Oh my god! It has been months since I updated and I m really very very sorry for this! I didn’t mean to make you wait for this long, I was going through a major writer’s block and what with my studies and exams it just doubled up! so very sorry again! please forgive me, and hope you like it.
Okay, I doubt many of you will remember the previous chapter, so let me just refresh you guys, Nicole is in NYC and had been on a date with Daniel and things end on a bitter note.
Chapter 35: Its time I returned.
Who says I don’t feel anything for you? I do, it’s just that I haven’t realised it yet.
I will. Not now. Soon.
I couldn’t believe him! Ugh! How could he act that way! I wanted to punch him right now, throw things at him! Hurt him!
I stormed into my home banging the main door. Dad and Antony looked up startled from TV. I glared at them, “What happened?” both of them asked.
Tears were threatening to over power me, “nothing,” I choked and stumbled to my room. I knew they would follow me; I managed to reach to the bed and started crying. Okay, this was stupid! I didn’t even know why I was crying! Yeah, I was angry and I did cry then but now it totally felt irrational. Stupid…stupid…stupid I told myself but I just couldn’t stop.
“Honey, what happened?” Dad asked.
“Did he hurt you?” Antony said in a much sterner tone, Dad sat by my side with his arm around me and Antony was kneeling; I looked at Antony through my tear filled blurry eyes. I started crying more. Infact I was sobbing. Both of them continued to ask me what happened again and again. I had never acted like this before; yes, I did cry. I did throw lot of tantrums but this was different. Tony handed me a glass of water and a tissue. I blew my nose and drank some water feeling a little comforted. I put my arms around Dad and hugged him tighter. But my sobbing had subdued.
“Nicole, sweetheart?” Antony murmured softly.
“Yeah?” my voice was miffed.
“Did…did Daniel hurt you?” he asked hesitantly.
Did he hurt me? Not in a physical manner, but his words did. And the way he just drove off was so mean! Jerk!
“N-no,” I stuttered.
“What happened darling?” Dad sighed. I knew I was worrying both of them, right now I hated boys! Ugh! They only men I could trust and was sure wouldn’t hurt me were my Dad and my Tony.
“I-I hate him,” I mumbled.
“Daniel?” Dad asked.
“Yes! Ugh!” I moved back and put my legs up on the bed.
“What did he do?” Antony asked, his eyes were darkened and I knew he was contemplating the thought of hurting him.
“We fought,” I admitted.
“Um, why?” he asked.
“I don’t want to talk about it,” I told them; I was lying of course, I wanted to scream about everything that had happened! But I was afraid they would find it silly.
“Sweetheart, you come back home and start crying so badly that it hurts, I m sure I want to know what exactly happened no matter how silly it is,” Dad squeezed my hand. Sometimes it felt like they could read my mind.
“You won’t laugh?” I asked them.
“Laugh? I don’t think either of us are anywhere near that emotion right now,” he replied looking at Tony and then at me. I smiled a little.
“Alright, so we were at that party, Daniel’s friends place. It was fun at first; Daniel was excited about introducing me to a new friend of his, Amy. Well, she came and he forgot about me!” my lower lip was trembling. I hugged myself closer and wiped the tears that escaped.
“Forgot?” Tony asked. “Did he leave you alone somewhere?”
“No, nothing like that happened. It was more like ‘Amy’s here! Let’s give her more attention! Who cares about Nicole right?’ that sort of thing. They started talking; they went on talking and went on and on and on! They spoke about how they met, what they did, where they hung out and god knows what! I was starting to feel left out and very irritated! I could see you know, she is in love with Daniel and Daniel…I don’t know, he was being so distant toward me when he was talking to her. So, later I got a call from Seth; I was so happy so I excused myself and went to speak to him, then Daniel came and told me we were leaving. We dropped Amy off at her place, and then he got me here, in the car he started telling me how I was rude to Amy and that he felt sure that she was hurt and all that crap! God! It made me angrier! He was the one acting like an idiot! You don’t know how awkward it was sitting there just watching them talk. I told him how I was feeling so he said he was just making sure she was feeling comfortable, he didn’t even care whether I was comfortable or not.” I grumbled. Both Dad and Tony were looking at me with surprise evident on their face.
“And then he dragged Seth into our fight! Poor Seth! He told me Seth was crazy about me, revolved around me or something, as if! Seth and I are just friends and Daniel just doesn’t get it! God! I hate him! After I got down from the car, he just zoomed ahead! That was so mean,” I clenched my fists.
“Oh honey,” Dad hugged me again.
“Daddy, I don’t want to be here,” I sniffed.
“What do you mean?” he asked surprised.
“I want to go back to La Push,” I said.
“You will hon, few more days,” he patted my back.
“No! I want to leave now!” I told him stubbornly.
“Nicole, you just came here,” he sighed.
“I know and I m sorry, but we can spend time together when you come there, I can’t stay here now. I m so angry and I m going to feel angry for the rest of the time! And I just want to get away from Daniel…so badly!” I confessed. Okay, maybe I was being dramatic and stubborn but I didn’t care. I just wanted to go back, go to La Push where I could just hang out be goofy with Seth and Leah, visit the Cullens and maybe hang with Emily and tease Paul. I was starting to miss them and right now I was feeling so fuzzled and most of all just stupid! I had come here to have some fun with my boyfriend but things had gone worse on the first day we met itself!
Ugh! I was so angry! I should have thrown stuff around; that would have helped.
“Are you sure?” Dad asked softly.
“Where’s Antony?” I asked realising he wasn’t in my room.
“He’s probably making something to make you feel better,” he replied.
“I’m sorry Daddy, I don’t want to hurt you,” I told him.
“I know, I just miss you a lot,” he sighed.
“I miss you too…I wish we lived together again,” I sighed.
“Maybe you should sleep on it, wake up tomorrow…work things out?” he suggested.
“No…I m too angry,” I told him.
He chuckled once, “alright, I will book the tickets, you can leave tomorrow,” he said.
“I m sorry,” I repeated.
“It’s alright, I know you well enough; I’ll visit you soon,” he promised.
“Thank you Daddy, I love you,” I smiled.
“I love you too,” he patted my head. “Talk to him whenever your ready, okay?” he added.
“Yeah okay,” I nodded.
“I m always here for you,” he smiled; it was a tired and sad smile.
“I know, forever,” I smiled.
“Alright, get some rest, I will see you tomorrow,” he kissed my forehead and left.
I will always be your little girl daddy, I thought. Sighing and feeling much calmer than I had before I headed to my closet and changed into a cotton shirt and my night pants. After cleaning myself up in the bathroom I headed to my room. Antony was seated on the couch, two mugs in front of him. Smiling I joined him taking my mug. Chocolate chipped and whipped creamed shake. My favourite.
“In love with me?” he grinned as I hungrily took a sip licking of the cream.
“Ooh yes!” I giggled licking the cream of my lips.
“So you sure you want to leave?” he asked.
“Yeah, I’m.” I told him.
“You know what?” he asked.
“What?” I asked.
“I m starting to wish you were boyfriend-less,” he sighed dramatically.
I poked him playfully.
“Don’t you want to sort things out? I mean you don’t have to run away from this,” he spoke seriously.
“I m not running away, and of course I will sort it out. I just need some time, and I m too angry to be level headed. And you of all people should know that,” I rolled my eyes.
“I do,” he smiled.
“M I being stupid Tony?” I asked after a while.
“What do you mean?” he replied.
“I mean…was Daniel right?” I didn’t look at him.
“What Daniel did was certainly wrong; no one should treat his girl in that manner. Obviously you were jealous! Happens to everyone,” he smiled.
“What if he breaks up with me or something? Even though all this happened and I hate him at the moment, I do like him,” I confessed.
He just started at me not answering.
“What?” I finally asked.
“Nicole, you’re growing up honey, it’s not easy to find true love right away, and you’ll have your hits and misses. As far as Daniel is concerned, both of you are wrong and right at different places, if its meant to be, then you will work things out perfectly.” Antony was so awesome! I bet my mother couldn’t have given a better advice.
“And if it doesn’t?” I asked him, scared.
“Then there’s someone else for you,” he smiled.
“Wow. Sometimes I think you have a female inside you,” I giggled trying to lighten up.
“Excuse me?” he raised his eye brow.
“Okay, that came out bad,” I laughed.
“It certainly did,” he grinned.
“Why isn’t there a guy like you?” I wondered.
“That’s because no one can as perfect as I m,” he winked.
“Yeah yeah, don’t flatter yourself, I didn’t really mean that,” I joked.
“Of course you did, come-on!” he grinned.
“You’re an idiot!” I shook my head still smiling.
“Says who?” he growled playfully.
I laughed; I bet no one in this world would care about me so much as Dad and Antony. They were my safe harbour. And I was sure, if things between Daniel and I did end badly, I would be hurt. But I had two people who loved me and would take care of me no matter what.
“I love you Tony, so much,” I told him.
“Love you too princess,” he smile and reached out to hug me. “Just tell me if you want me to break his bones,” he added mockingly.
“Sure, I will.” I giggled like a nine year old. Yes, they were my safe harbour. People whom I could trust to love and support me forever.
The next morning I woke up and everything that happened yesterday ran through my mind. I lay staring at the ceiling. Thinking. Did I really want to leave NY and go back to La Push? For some weird reason I did. It felt…um…right. I know, weird. But the was a feeling, I knew I had to go there…I just have to. And staying here wasn’t making things happy anyway. I was miserable here! And I could come back whenever I wanted to, right? Yeah.
Sighing I got down from the bed and headed to the kitchen putting on my robe.
“Morning guys,” I greeted Dad and Antony.
“Good morning,” both of them replied. I got myself some cereal.
“So, still leaving?” dad asked.
“Yep,” I nodded.
“Just checking,” he smiled trying to make a joke out of it.
“Well you know me,” I grinned. Sort of.
Throughout the breakfast we made small talk and after eating I headed back to my room to pack and get ready. I checked my cell, I had 10 missed calls and 8 messages. I realised none of them were from Daniel. Well that strengthened my resolve to leave without speaking to him!
But I did have to speak to my best friend. Oh Heather! Dating your best friend’s brother did have few complications. Sighing I dialled her number.
“Nicole! What’s the matter with you?!” he screaming voice greeted me.
At once my defences were up, was she actually supporting him without listening to my side of story?
“Gosh! What is the matter with you?” I asked her.
“I have been calling and calling and calling and I so badly wanted to talk to you idiot!” she was still yelling.
“Oh yeah? Don’t idiot me!” what was wrong with us?! We never fought. Ever.
“I needed to talk to you!” she exclaimed.
“Talk what? Tell it was my fault?” I was about to cry again.
“No! No! Of course not!” she sounded confused.
“Um, yeah?” I asked.
“D-uh!” I knew she was rolling her eyes. Okay, I had been a little dramatic! But seriously, not my fault; this boyfriend drama was getting me.
“Sorry Heather, I’m just feeling so messed up right now,” I sighed.
“What happened?” she asked.
“Ugh! It’s so irritating!” I huffed.
“Daniel wont tell me anything either, he just came back home. He was fuming! He’s locked himself up in his room since last night,” she told me.
“Oh,” he was at Heather’s place? But shouldn’t he be in his campus? Cuddling up with Amy?
“I know something happened! Was he a jerk to you?” she asked angrily.
“Um…uh,” he was her brother after all.
“Nicole Whitlock! You and I have been best friends since I don’t even remember! And trust me; you don’t want to mess with me now! I don’t care if he’s my brother, I want you to tell me everything!” she stated. Okay, I got the point.
“Can you come here?” I asked her.
“Yeah alright,” she agreed. I didn’t want to speak to her on the phone. Not really when I especially had to tell her that I was leaving.
“Okay, see you,” I hung up.
I hadn’t really unpacked much, so I stuffed everything that I needed, packet extra stuff. I wanted to come here for shopping, never mind I’ll do it some other time. Sighing again, I went up to the bathroom and took a long shower. Drying myself I dressed up in skinny jeans and a white t-shirt. With light make up and leather boots I was ready.
Dad told me the flight was at 11.45 am so we’ll have to leave by 10.30 to reach the air port early. It was still 8 and Heather would be here any moment. Just on the cue the door bell rang, I opened the door.
Speak of the devil and the devil shall appear. Heather.
“Hi,” I smiled tightly.
She hugged me, I hugged back feeling comforted.
We went to my room, “So, what really happened?” she asked.
And I told her everything. Starting from how wonderful the day had been, so sweet and fun until Amy arrived in the picture. Her eyes widened in surprise.
“…yeah, so that’s pretty much what happened! I really can’t believe that he dragged Seth into it!” I ended.
“And I really can’t believe that he did that,” she still was shocked.
“So much for having a great week,” I mumbled.
“Yeah, I know…I m so sorry Nicole,” she squeezed my palm.
“I m so angry! And he hasn’t even called, not once! I’m really irritated!” I fumed.
“I know, I would have been too if Kevin had acted that way with me, and trust me I’m as angry as you are at Daniel!” she said.
I giggled. That’s why we were best friends.
“Thanks,” I smiled.
“Always,” she nodded.
“So, you really think Amy is in love with him?” she asked.
“Yeah, you should have seen her,” I frowned.
“Aw honey, I’m sorry,” she frowned too.
“I can’t do anything, its bound to happen, and I doubt Daniel even knows,” I muttered.
“Well, yeah maybe! But we can’t be sure of that,” she shrugged.
“You think he’ll break up with me?” I whispered.
“He would be an idiot then,” she scowled.
“You didn’t answer,” I pointed out.
“I don’t know, I mean this is your first fight right? So I don’t think so, not if he has hots for her,” she smiled a little.
“I hate this,” I threw my pillow on the floor.
“Yeah, hopefully he’s going to call or he’ll be here, so don’t worry much,” she tried to comfort me.
I immediately started feeling guilty. I wanted to be with Heather but I just couldn’t stay.
“Um, Heather?” I bit my lip nervously.
“What?” her eyes narrowed suspiciously.
“I-uh-I,” my lip was going to bleed soon.
“You aren’t staying here, are you?” she stated calmly.
My eyes widened, I nodded.
“That’s so you, you know?” she sighed.
“I m not running away,” I whispered trying to make her understand.
“I know! You aren’t, you just need some time to cool that hot head of yours,” she smiled.
“I m sorry,” I apologised.
“Well, you wouldn’t have hung out with me much any way,” she joked.
“No, I really m sorry,” I told her honestly.
“That’s alright Nicole, we can meet some other time,” she smiled.
“Thanks Heather,” I hugged her.
“I m going to spank Daniel,” she growled.
“That would be cool,” I laughed.
“I know,” she grinned. “So, are you telling him your leaving?” she asked.
“No, I don’t think I should. I doubt he’s even interested in talking to me right now, he too was angry,” I said.
“Oh, okay,” she nodded. “I’ll tell him later?”
“Yeah, do that.” I smiled.
Soon it was time for us to leave; Dad told Heather he would drop her home later so she came with us to the air port. The atmosphere in the car was sad but we were trying our best to deal with it.
“Bye! I m going to miss you so so so much!” I hugged Heather.
“Me too,” she hugged back with equal warmth.
“Bye Daddy, see you soon. I love you,” I hugged dad.
“Love you too princess,” his voice was emotional. My eyes pricked. I was going to miss him a lot.
“I m sorry,” I told him again.
“No, you don’t have to be. I understand. And I’ll see you very soon!” he patted my back.
“Okay,” I kissed him on the cheek.
“Take care honey, and um, call me when you get there,” his eyes were suddenly twinkling.
“Ohkay?” I nodded. I knew something was up; dad always had that twinkle every time he wanted to make me happy.
“What have you done old man?” I giggled.
“Just call when you get there,” he grinned. “And I m not old yet Miss!” his chuckled.
“Yeah you aren’t…alright, bye!” I kissed him again. Antony said his goodbyes and we left.
“So, what has Dad done?” I asked Tony.
“How will I know?” Antony said innocently. Too innocently.
“Tony!” I punched him playfully.
“I don’t know!” he laughed and put his arm around me.
“I hate you,” I told him.
“Love you too,” he said cheekily.
“Yeah, whatever.” I rolled my eyes.
The plane ride wasn’t very long and being comfortable in our first class seats was just another plus. Antony asked me if I told Daniel that I was leaving and I said no, he didn’t say anything and we spoke about everything other than that. At Seattle I put on my pullover and was soon anxious to reach La Push.
We got down at Port Angeles; a taxi was waiting for us. I realised I had missed the damp misty climate a lot. After few hours we reached Forks and from there La Push was just a fifteen minute drive.
Welcome to La Push. When I read the words from the green plate.
“Home sweet home!” Antony sang.
“Yeah…home sweet home,” I said quietly.
For the first time, it felt like home. Yeah. I was home.
I had been feeling miserable! The whole time I was away from her. But last night I had spoke to her, and that had sort of lifted my heart. Alright, I couldn’t see her but I spoke to her at least! And she had actually sounded happy to hear my voice. Infact she was more than happy. I could make out. She was my imprint after all. It ached my heart to know that she was at a party with him but knowing that things were strained between them I rejoiced. I know that was selfish and mean but if it meant getting my imprint back than I would be selfish and mean for the rest of my existence.
I went back to the Cullens place to apologise for my bad behaviour; now that I had spoken to Nicole I was feeling better. It was just amazing how this girl controlled my whole life. Edward was happy to see me happy; I played with Jake and Nessie for a while until I waited for Emmett to come back from hunting. When he did I lost no time in apologising.
“Hey, I m sorry for being so…different,” I frowned.
“Chill! I didn’t take it seriously, and it was quite fun watching you mope around,” he chuckled and patted my back.
“Nothing upsets you right?” I laughed just glad that Emmett was such a great guy.
“Nope, nothing at all!” he grinned his cheeky grin.
“Thanks man,” I told him.
“Please do mope around but,” he added.
“Love to humour you,” I rolled my eyes.
“Alright, go play with Edward, I need to please my lady!” he winked and left me open mouthed.
“Uh, okay bye,” I replied unsurely but smiling.
“Oh, by the way, do think about kissing her,” he called back.
“Just go Emmett!” I chuckled feeling better.
I still missed Nicole but I was in a better place. Esme offered me to stay here and I gladly accepted thinking of Adam and Leah back home doing god knows what. And I didn’t really want to know. I crashed in Edward’s old room.
For the first time I fell asleep without worrying. But as usual, that last coherent thought was of Nicole…my Nicole.
The next morning I woken up by Alice’s exuberance.
“God! You sleep like a log!” she was practically jumping on the bed.
“Alice! Go away,” I groaned and rolled to the other side.
“No! I m not leaving Seth Clearwater! Wake up! It’s long past noon!” she was such an angry pixie.
“Long past noon?” I questioned sitting up in shock. I had slept for that long?
“Yes! Its ten past three! Wake up already!” she punched my shoulder.
“Ow! That hurt,” I muttered.
“Oops! Sorry,” she grinned not sounding sorry at all.
“You know, you can go back to wherever you came from, and I will go back to sleep,” I mumbled and fell back on the bed, I hadn’t slept much in a long while and this seemed like a good way of catching up.
“No you aren’t! Just get up! Don’t you want to be ready for her?” he groaned.
“No Alice, I don’t want to…whoa…wait, ready for whom?” I asked confused.
“Who do you think?” she smirked.
“Nicole?” I asked my heart beat increasing.
She gave me a look which confirmed that it was Nicole.
“Are you serious?” I asked excited.
“D-uh!” she laughed. But how was that possible? Nicole told me she would be back in a week, but not even three days had passed yet.
“But…how…wait, how do you know?” I asked Alice for more information.
“I don’t know why but I saw her return,” she answered.
“But you cannot see her?” I pointed out.
“God Seth! I m doing you a favour, you should be happy! And please stop with the twenty questions and don’t waste our time!” her eyes flashed.
“Oh, okay,” I was scared now.
“Get up now!” she squealed.
“Okay okay!” I nodded and hurried of the bed.
She handed me a towel and laid a t-shirt and jeans on the bed. That’s all? For that she wanted me to hurry?
As if reading my mind she said, “these are your before clothes, take a proper bath and wear those and come down, Esme has made you lunch…then I will dress you up,” she beamed at the end.
Dress me up? I gulped. All I had to do is just wear clothes and set my hair that’s all.
“Go!” she pushed me into the bathroom.
“Oh, Alice?” I called as she was about to leave.
“What now?” she asked her hands on her hip.
“Is she really back?” I asked sounding hopeful.
“She is going to be,” she smiled kindly.
“Okay,” I nodded.
As I got into the shower my heart leaping with joy the whole time! I couldn’t stop grinning like an idiot! I washed my body cleanly sniffing myself not wanting to smell like a dog. I had been such a mess these past couple of days.
Grinning all the way I went down, I was greeted by everyone apart from Carlisle. Leah and Adam also seemed to have joined us here.
“Looking good Seth,” Edward patted my back.
“I m so happy!” I laughed. Everyone chuckled. Esme had laid enough food on the table and I ate everything I could.
Alice watched me like a hawk glancing at her wrist watch every few seconds making me nervous. Jasper soon joined her and calm spread through me. Alice began to mumble how I was wasting time by eating but Edward came to my stomach’s rescue and after that Alice didn’t say much.
After eating Alice dragged me to her room, Jasper followed us probably to keep both of us calm. As she couldn’t see me I had to actually wear the outfits she thought or rather she knew were the best.
“Alice!” I whined. I could already hear people laughing below.
“No complaining! Don’t you want Nicole to go crazy over you,” she scolded.
“I can wear anything, they are good enough!” I complained.
“Seth, we are doing this my way. So stop acting like Bella and do as I say!” she growled. I started to wonder how Jasper handled her.
“Exactly! I m not a girl! I m a guy!” I cried.
“Thanks for the gender distinction! Now go wear this!” Ignoring my attempts she handed me clothes.
“Just because no one is ready to be your dummy you’re dragging me into this,” I grumbled but nevertheless I headed to change.
“Just listen to her Seth,” Jasper chuckled.
“Yeah I know you do,” I muttered.
“Thanks Jazz!” Alice beamed at him.
I tried on my first set of clothes, and then the second, and then the third…and it went on. Finally Alice showed mercy on me or rather found the right clothes.
“Alice? How is this different than others? We could have just picked anything first hand!” I told her as I looked at myself in the mirror. I was dressed in white cargo knee length pants and a black v neck t-shirt.
“Stop arguing Seth!” Alice rolled her eyes. “You should be thanking me,” she grumbled.
“Thank you Alice,” I chastised.
“Your welcome!” she beamed at once and dragged me to a chair.
“Now m going to set your hair!” she sang.
“I m seriously doubting whether you realise I m not a girl,” I teased her.
“Its not just girls that need dressing up! If I wouldn’t have dealt with you would have just grabbed something off the rack!” she complained.
“Alright Miss Perfectionist!” I grinned at her. I did want to look good though and I knew I could trust Alice.
In seconds she was done, and I looked at myself, I was looking…decent. Okay who was I kidding? I was actually looking quite handsome.
“Thanks Alice,” I hugged her smiling genuinely.
“See! Now that’s the reaction I was waiting for!” she beamed.
“Hey, I thought you liked my hugs only,” Jasper came in from behind us.
“I do…but occasionally you know,” she winked. He laughed and looked at her admiringly.
“Now I know why your hair is long, it’s longer than Alice’s,” I teased Jasper.
“Right, run down Seth or you’ll be left hairless,” he joked.
“Wait!” Alice screamed.
“What?” I asked.
“You have to call Nicole!” she handed me my cell.
“What? I thought-” I looked confused.
“Well you thought all wrong,” she cut me.
“You are so pushy!” I told her.
“Just call Seth, don’t you want to be with her,” she rolled her eyes.
“Okay,” I sighed and dialled her number.
“Hey,” a doleful voice greeted me.
“Hi,” I breathed. “Uh-,” I gave Alice a what-do-I-say?! Look.
“What’s up?” she asked.
“Nothing actually,” I was so tactless.
“One second, hold on,” she said. ‘Coming Antony!’ I heard her.
“Seth, I will call you soon okay?” she asked.
“Yeah sure,” I replied. She hung up.
“You are so-” Alice began.
“I know tactless,” I sighed.
“Hey, don’t worry, there’s still a possibility of her future disappearing,” she smiled.
We went down, I could see Emmett and Renesmee teamed up against Jacob, and they were mock fighting. Edward and Bella were cuddled up on the love seat, Rosalie was watching some movie and Esme was going through some books, Alice joined her so I assumed some fashion stuff.
“Hey! Don’t feel so shady, she’ll call,” Jasper said.
“Yeah, thanks,” I told him.
Just then she called, Jasper gave me a knowing look and joined Rosalie.
“Hi,” I greeted cheerful.
“Oh my god Seth!” she screamed, talk about transformation. I grinned.
“You’re so happy to talk to me?” I chuckled sitting on the stairs.
“No!” she giggled.
“Ouch,” I joked.
“I mean I’m! But that’s not the reason, you wont believe it!” she babbled.
“What is it Nicole?” I asked.
“Guess!” she exclaimed.
“Um…I don’t know tell me,” I was more than excited that she was back in La Push but she didn’t know that I knew that yet and I don’t think she was excited for that.
“Okay, I’ll give you a hint…it’s a gift,” she played.
“Uh…I really don’t know,” I said.
“Okay chuck! I’ll only tell you…Dad and Antony got me a car!” she squealed.
“Wow, that’s great! Congrats,” I smiled.
“Yep! Thanks, I m so so so so excited! I can’t believe its mine! Oh gosh!” she exclaimed.
“Which is it?” I asked.
“It’s a Porsche,” she announced.
“Whoa! That’s awesome!” The Cullens weren’t the only once who had flashy stuff.
“I know! Do you want to see?” she asked.
“Yeah sure,” I told her.
“Well, come-on over then!” she said.
“What? You’re here?” I pretended but the happiness in my voice was real.
“D-uh! Come soon!” she laughed.
“Okay dokie, I will see you soon,” I told her.
“Yeah okay…bye!” she sang.
“Bye,” I chuckled and hung up.
Well, now I was definitely hanging out with her.
“Here, take my car,” Edward threw me his car’s key.
“Thanks man,” I told him grinning widely.
“Sure, have fun!” he smiled back.
Time to turn on my charm. I was going to win her…no matter what.
