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 32: Hurdles in Love
Going to find a way out of this pain…with or without you.
Heather was staying over at my place till I was here, right now both of were lying on my bed staring at the ceiling.
“Daniel hasn’t called yet,” I told her.
“I wonder what’s holding him up,” said Heather.
“Hmm…maybe he is bored of me,” I groaned and hid my face in the pillow.
“Shut up Nicole!” she exclaimed.
“Then why isn’t he calling? I texted him twice already…” I rambled on.
“Relax! He will…” she didn’t sound confident herself.
“I m an idiot…a total idiot,” I continued.
“If you aren’t going to say anything productive then you can keep quiet,” said Heather sounding annoyed.
“I m sorry,” I mumbled.
“I m going to kick his-” she was interrupted by a sudden burst of music, my ring tone.
“Is it him?!” she asked.
“Yes!” I beamed.
“Don’t pick up!” she grabbed the phone from my arms.
“What?! Are you mental?! We have been waiting,” I whined. I so badly wanted to talk to Daniel…I missed him.
“Let him wait for a while!” both of us were now sitting on the bed.
“But I want to talk to him! He is my boyfriend!” I retorted.
“And I m your best friend, so you better listen.” She snapped.
“I don’t know why…why I always listen to you,” I pouted as my cell finally stopped ringing.
“I bet he won’t call me again…” I huffed.
“Oh he will…I know Dan,” she rolled her eyes.
“You better be right,” I said eyeing my cell contemplating the chances of grabbing it from Heather and calling Dan.
“Not gonna work princess,” she chuckled, and I threw a pillow at her.
“Best friends are supposed to help!” I grumbled.
“And I m helping idiot,” she rolled her eyes again and chucked me the phone, it started ringing again.
“Now pick up, on the speaker!” she whispered.
“Hello?” I said.
“Umm…hey! I thought you were asleep,” his voice sounded like heaven.
“Yeah, I was almost,” I said rather stiffly. Heather gave me a thumb’s up. But my irritation at Daniel wasn’t just a pretence…it was real!
“Oh, lucky you didn’t then,” he sounded nervous.
“Right…” I mumbled feeling sad. He wasn’t even apologising.
“I m sorry Nicole,” he whispered as if he had read my mind.
“Why?” I asked smiling a bit.
“For being the world’s biggest jerk and not calling you right away, I was really busy! Please forgive me,” he explained.
“Of-OW!” I screamed, Heather had just pinched me and was mouthing a huge ‘NO’
“What?” Daniel asked distracted.
“Nothing…” I muttered trying to understand Heather.
“So you forgive me?” he asked sweetly.
‘Don’t give in so EASILY!’ Heather had frantically written on a sheet of paper.
“Oh! Well, that depends,” I said biting my lip. Heather hugged herself in satisfaction.
“How about I pick you up tomorrow? And we spend our time together?” he asked.
“Hmm…maybe we can do that,” I agreed.
“I will make it up to you, I promise,” he vouched.
“Alright,” I said trying to sound indifferent.
“So, how are you? I miss you,” he asked.
“I m okay,” I told him.
“Don’t you miss me?” he sounded sad.
Before answering I grabbed my cell and switched off the speaker mode, Heather pouted but didn’t say anything.
“I did infact,” I added softly walking toward the window.
“I wish we were together now,” he sighed.
“Me too,” I agreed.
“We’ll meet tomorrow; I will show you around campus! It is so amazing here, and I will introduce you to my roomies and yeah…I will make sure you have fun,” he was so excited that I laughed.
“You are so amazing!” I giggled.
“No you are,” he said softly.
“Um…thanks,” I blushed.
“It’s late now, you get some sleep beautiful, I will see you tomorrow, okay?” he asked.
“Absolutely, alright then, sweet dreams,” I yawned.
“I Love you…” he added shyly but with intensity.
“I love you too,” I whispered blushing heavily.
And then we hung up. Feeling light headed I went to the bed. Heather rolled her eyes for the third time, “I seriously can’t imagine what he says that makes you blush so very much!” she giggled.
“It’s obvious isn’t it?!” I asked surprised. Heather and I were kind of expert in determining what went on between couples and etc.
“No! Because he is my Brother!” she grumbled.
“Still…” I pressed on, it wouldn’t be hard right?
“Yeah right, I almost died of shock when I saw him eating your face back in La Push,” she said teasingly.
“Alright, enough jokes at my expense!” I muttered feeling embarrassed.
“Right, your expression was priceless, if I hadn’t been angry I would have laughed crazily,” she giggled.
“Go to sleep Heather,” I smiled thinking of the time that seemed so long ago. I still remembered what had happened that night before in the woods. I bet Heather would have fainted if she had seen me and Daniel then.
“Shall I ask you something?!” she asked sounding hesitant.
“Um, sure,” I looked at her.
“Is-he-a-good-kisser?” she asked.
“He is a…” I felt my face go hot.
“Please be decent,” she begged mockingly.
“He is simply amazing and extremely passionate,” I giggled watching her scrunch her nose.
“Whoa…I would have loved all the dirty facts…but it’s so awkward!” her expression was hilarious.
I laughed for few seconds and then added, “I want him…now!”
“Control your hormones, and just close your eyes.” She giggled.
“Wow…that helps me so much,” I said sarcastically.
“What are you doing?” I asked narrowing my eyes as she placed a line of pillows between us.
“I don’t want to be kissed by you that would be pretty scary, I prefer to kiss Kevin only,” she said as if it was self explanatory with a mischievous glint in her eyes.
“You are so unbelievable!” I couldn’t help but laughing.
“Yeah I know, it’s in family,” she shrugged playing still.
“What?” I asked confused.
“You see, Daniel is ‘amazing’ and I m ‘unbelievable’ according to you, so it has to be-”
“Just go and sleep Heather…I don’t want to break anything on that pretty head of yours,” I giggled.
“Right, good point,” she nodded and pulled up the sheets.
“Good night,” I smiled at her.
“Hmm…nighty night,” she yawned.
Switching of the bed lamp I closed my eyes too smiling to myself.
Thirty hours forty eight minutes had passed since I saw Nicole, feeling miserable I lay on the couch at the Cullen’s place.
As usual their home was surrounded by people, I didn’t want to be around people now and would have gladly stayed locked up in my room if Leah hadn’t kicked me out saying she and Adam wanted some time alone. But I knew the real reason was just to get me run some where for a while. I hadn’t eaten anything or even slept much. I wouldn’t have but Edward literally shoved the food down my throat but that was in the morning.
“Its mopey time…just mopey time…mope around because its mooooopppeeeeeyyyy tiiiime!” Emmett sang in high pitch from the other end of the room.
Something about me was amusing Emmett extremely; when he saw me glaring at him, he winked. I let out a low growl.
“Emmett,” Edward cautioned.
“You know what?! I should really leave, I m just ruining the atmosphere,” I got up. Jasper had tried to get me out of this despair but it was just impossible when all I could think was about Nicole.
“It’s not like that, we all know how Emmett is Seth,” Carlisle assured me with a fatherly smile.
“Yeah I know, but I just want to be…alone,” I mumbled.
“Hey Seth, maybe this will interest you!” Jasper called, he was sitting on the couch with a laptop and Alice beside him.
I doubted whatever he wanted to show was interesting. I wanted to walk away but he was looking at me expectantly, sighing I walked up to him.
“What is it?” I asked in a dead voice.
“It’s about Nicole,” he started.
“What? Is she okay?” I sat down and peered at the laptop.
“Yes, yes she is fine, I can see her future very clearly, but that’s not what we want to show,” Alice was practically jumping.
“Then?” I questioned.
“Nicole is my descendant!” Jasper beamed.
Everyone surrounded us now with surprise on their faces, everyone except Edward of course, he merely played with a strand of Bella’s hair.
“What do you mean?” I asked confused.
“Listen, the first day she came here she told us she is Nicole Whitlock, and hearing that surname obviously piqued up my interest, I wanted to see if we were related and I was exactly right!” Jasper explained.
“Okay,” I mumbled.
“Yeah, I had a little brother who was very much younger than me, almost ten years difference between us, that’s how the Whitlock family continued, so later his grandson, moved to the north and after decades William Whitlock was born and then Nicole, his daughter...” he sighed.
“Wow, my imprint is related to Vampires, just wow!” I muttered sarcastically.
Everyone stared at me with shock on their faces, only Jacob had kept a calm expression but had raised his eyebrows as well.
“Look dude, it’s not our fault that she isn’t attracted to you!” Emmett grinned.
“Excuse me?!” I stood up growling.
“Calm down Seth!” Jacob ordered.
“Whoa whoa…relax kid! I was just playing around,” Emmett chuckled.
“Yeah, whatever,” I moved to head out.
“Still, it is true you know?” he continued in his teasing tone.
“What is true?” I asked not wanting to hear that I wasn’t Nicole’s.
“You need to do something! All you do is wait, then you might as well wait forever, you need to show her who’s the real man! Kiss her if you have to…! Force her down and then she is going to melt under you,” he advised with the same smile.
“Enough Emmett, don’t give him wrong ideas, he is doing the right thing now, and if he throws himself at her she isn’t going to fall for him!” Bella contradicted.
“And this is coming from you? I don’t remember you being-” Emmett was cut short by Edward’s growl.
“Okay! All I m saying is Seth needs to initiate it! So far he has been waiting for her, nothing really has happened, so maybe if he kisses her or does something like that she is going to think about it and obviously want him,” Emmett shrugged.
“It isn’t always about kissing and making up Em,” Esme said motherly.
Unable to hear any more comments of what I should be doing I headed out deep into the woods in my human form itself. I didn’t have the strength to shift into the animal part in me.
I just walked…kept walking, if I had been just a normal human I would have been exhausted by now, but I was a werewolf with incredible strength. Moreover if I hadn’t been a wolf I wouldn’t have imprinted and met Nicole…do I want that?! At this point it seemed like a good possibility. Then I wouldn’t have to deal with this pain.
It was past midnight and the moon shone brightly, I realised I was in the backyard of my house. Sighing I walked in, maybe I should sleep for sometime, but how could I when all I saw after closing my eyes was Nicole. God! I didn’t know if anyone had ever had a hard time as I have!
“Seth!” Leah and Adam looked embarrassed and sat on the edges of the couch both had those goofy looks on their faces.
“Hey,” I mumbled; my mind racing ahead-if Nicole and I had been together than maybe…maybe we would have been kissing on the couch, she would have looked beautiful blushing after breaking apart. I almost smiled. Almost.
“Come-on eat something,” Leah started heading to the kitchen.
“No, I m not hungry,” I told her.
“You have to eat!” she glared at me.
“Eat a little Seth,” said Adam unable to hide the pity in his eyes.
“No-” I was too dead to even talk let alone argue.
“Just listen to me! Stop being so dead! She is going to come around sometime, you haven’t lost her…she hasn’t rejected you! Stop moping around!” she shouted.
I stood there shocked…staring at her, “I didn’t see you cheerful after Sam left you,” I regretted this as soon as I said it.
Her eyes turned steel and her posture went rigid, Adam looked uncomfortable.
“Sam has got nothing to do with it!” she exclaimed finally.
“Right, you wanted him bad didn’t you? Tried to cut yourself up, at least I m not doing that,” I snapped. What was wrong with me?!
“Seth…I don’t think that’s the best conversation to have,” Adam said in a cool voice with a hand on Leah’s shoulder. Her eyes were burning with anger, and she was trembling too.
“Sam wasn’t my imprint,” she stated.
“But Nicole is mine…” I retorted. Honestly this conversation was making no sense, why had I brought up Sam?! He wasn’t even in the picture…and Leah was completely right. That was what making me angry!
Suddenly Leah was by my side; her eyes just had kindness and comfort.
“I m sorry, I don’t know why, I think I m losing it,” I broke down.
Adam left us giving an excuse of meeting the Cullens’ giving Leah and me some alone time.
“I know…I wish I could make it alright,” she hugged me.
I held on to her and let the tears fall. “Why is it happening to me Lee? Everyone had it so easy…their imprint could feel the connection.”
“She’s a real catch I guess,” she replied.
“Ha,” I laughed without humour.
“We can talk over dinner,” she led me to the kitchen.
I sat down feeling hungry, Leah put grilled sandwiches and chicken in front of me, I dove in.
“I thought I was the family chef…not you,” I tried to joke.
“Things change lil bro,” she smiled.
“Yeah…” I nodded vaguely.
“Look, its going to be fine…I just know it…you don’t have to be so tensed, she’ll come around,” she shrugged.
“Right,” I smiled.
After eating, I felt a little better but there was still pain in me. I went up to my room, catching my reflection in the mirror I froze in shock. Barely had a day passed and I looked like hell. More like a zombie than a wolf. I probably smelled too, at least I should be presentable when she comes back. I decided to take a shower. The hot water calmed me in a way. I headed out of the bathroom wrapped in towel thinking about the first time Nicole was in my room. She had acted so funny. I laughed. Putting on my khaki cut offs I lay on the bed waiting for sleep to come.
An hour passed…still I was wide awake, staring at the ceiling, thinking of what Emmett had told me. I had to take control, make Nicole realise. I had to show her…be too forward.
“Ugh!” I threw the pillow. This was getting me no where; I wanted to get out of the house. Maybe I should go and get drunk, then I won’t be able to think for a while. Putting on a sweatshirt I headed down.
“Leah?” I called.
“She’s sleeping,” Adam’s voice startled me.
“Oh…right, its night,” I mumbled.
“Shouldn’t you be too?” he asked.
“Umm…not able to sleep,” I shrugged.
“Okay,” he nodded understandingly.
“I m just going to head out for a while, take Leah’s truck, I will see in the morning,” I told him and headed out before he could investigate more. I was still a few months away from turning eighteen…so it was best if no adults knew about my adventure. Not that they would mind much…but still.
All this while I had been around people who gave me understanding, pitied, sad, kind looks; I just wanted to be surrounded by strangers who knew nothing about my pain!
Driving at the highest limit I drove out of La Push in minutes and then out of Forks. I stopped only when I reached Port Angeles, being a small town there wasn’t much bubbling activity in the night. Finding the exact place that I needed, a small bar where they wouldn’t ask for my id. I looked old enough anyway. Though it was dark and empty outside the bar was filled with people of all ages. I managed to get a seat on the end of the counter and ordered my drink.
It took a long time for a werewolf to get drunk. Drink after drink I was still alert and counting. Finally after the thirtieth drink I started feeling a little drowsy.
“Wow…I have never seen anyone gulp down so many glasses,” I heard a low pitched voice next to me. She was drunk to but not too much. Blinking I studied her, she had short blonde hair coloured with orange streaks, she wore a low neck top and short skirt. Her right ear was pierced from the top till the end and she wore many bracelets.
“Obviously we haven’t met,” I told her.
“Yes,” she smiled.
I continued with my drinks and asked the bartender to get her one.
“So what has driven you so drunken?” she asked after a while.
“Everyone has problems,” I told her.
“I see…a girl?” she asked.
“Umm…yes,” I slurred.
“Nothing drives a guy crazy more,” she nodded in space.
“Right…mine is driving me quite very crazy,” I admitted.
After a couple more drinks, we sat much closer and I found myself telling this stranger all about Nicole and my relationship omitting the super natural part. Even when I was drunk I wasn’t an idiot to spill the secrets, more over it was the alpha order that was holding me back.
She seemed to listen with complete attention, after I finished talking she said, “All you need is to have some fun now, forget everything….for a while at least.” She moved her fingers through my hair. I watched her blinking slowly. Finally alcohol had ruled over me.
“I don’t know what to do,” I muttered.
“Just don’t think much,” she leaned in, now holding my face with both of her hands.
“Hmm…” she smelled like mint, I didn’t like it much but it was a numbing sensation.
Her lips touched mine, she moved her lips along mine waiting for me to respond. Closing my eyes I reacted to her, pulling her closer and let our lips do all the work. It felt weird, it felt different, as if I was put into a different body and was trying to make it work.
“Maybe we should take this some where private,” she whispered in my ear. “I know just the place.”
I got down and let her lead me by my arm; we reached narrow stairs in the opposite corner of the door. We went up, drowsily and stumbling. My senses were dulled…I felt normal, just like all the other humans.
“We are here, it’s my room.” She led us in a tiny bedroom with the bed taking the attention. Locking the door she turned to me. I didn’t have much time to look around because she jumped on me and we started kissing again. my last coherent thought before our lips touched again was-all I want to do is just feel her body moulded with mine.
