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 37: True Believer
Its one of those rare time when you show your real self
And when you do…and are not accepted
His lips were hard and soft at the same time against mine. The more he pressed them on mine, the more I wanted him to continue. His hands held my waist and his fingers continued massaging it as they travelled along my back. For a wild moment, my mind registered nothing but the fact that Seth Clearwater was kissing me as if his life depended on it…and I was kissing him back.
And I was kissing him back!
I tried to push him off, but instead of stopping, Seth just kissed me harder…in quite an animalistic manner. Though it thrilled a part of me, I was irritated. I wasn’t used to pressure and force…and frankly, it scared me. He pushed be further against the cold stone as if I wasn’t squashed already and continued kissing. His arms had left my back, and now his fingers were encircled around the top of my arms.
I was starting to feel claustrophobic. Fear ran through me as I struggled to push his humongous body of mine. There was no competition of course, he was huge and strong. The kiss no more thrilled me…and I just wanted it to get over. And for that, I had to wait for him to feel the need to get some air.
I felt tears starting to form in my eyes, and I badly needed to breathe.
And then all of a sudden, Seth stopped. He pressed his lips on mine gently once more, just a peck and then he moved back. His fingers loosened around my arms, he was breathless.
“Wow,” he whispered.
The feeling of helplessness left me and anger burned throughout my body. I felt the tears sting my eyes and I was breathing heavily too. At first, Seth had look completely wowed but now he looked worried.
“Are you-are you okay?” he asked hesitantly.
Okay? He was asking me if I was okay. That did it.
“How dare you?! How dare you touch me?” I screamed at him. His eyes just widened in surprise. What exactly was he expecting me to do? Scream in joy?! Hug him and ask him to kiss me further?!
Feeling disgusted, I pushed him and moved away. I didn’t want to be anywhere close to him. He stood up with me looking at me pleadingly.
“Why did you do that? How could you?!” I shouted more.
“Nicole-” he tried to hold my hand.
I shrugged it away. “Don’t you dare touch me!”
“Look, let me explain,” he said sounding desperate.
“Explain what?” I glared at him. “You think you can explain? I was trying to pushing you off and all you did was force me! Literally force me! Who does that Seth?”
“I-I didn’t realise,” he was hardly audible.
“Yeah right,” I snorted.
“Why are you angry?”
“Are you trying to joke?” I choked. “Are you really asking that?!”
“You’re not supposed to be,” he mumbled in a dazed fashion.
“You’re crazy!” I exclaimed and started to walk away. I couldn’t stand and argue with him, he sounded mental! And the look on his face…
“Don’t go,” he pleaded and pulled me back to him.
“Let me go Seth,” I ordered.
“No!” he replied, defiantly.
“Let me go now,” I repeated.
He let go of my arm, just as I was about to leave, “I love you!” he blurted out.
“W-what?” I mumbled, horrified.
“I love you…and you are supposed to love me too…you have to!”
“Oh my god! You’re crazy!” I cried. I could hear Daniel’s voice in my head, he had been right. Seth didn’t want to me just as his friend. He wanted something entirely more. And from the way he was talking, it definitely looked like he had gone to extremes.
“I’m not!” he shouted. His voice held such authority that I was frozen just the way as I stood.
“I’m not crazy! I just love you…and you are my imprint. You are supposed to love me back. You are supposed to feel what I feel for you! You’re my soul mate, I want to love you…take care of you…protect you! And I just want you to stop ignoring me. I know you feel something for me, just show it. Love me back…” his voice which had started strong softened toward the end. He stood closer to me than before, both his palms cupping my cheeks.
I watched him in daze. Everything he had just said was simply shocking. And so scary. What did he mean by supposed to love him back? Was he going to force her? And what was an imprint?
Feeling that he had reached his limits and not wanting to push him further, I forced myself to speak in a softer tone. “Seth…I do love you, but not in the way you want me to…I think of you just as a friend, and I don’t know what I did to-”
“Oh, don’t give me that!” he looked at me bitterly.
“But that’s the truth!” I defended myself.
“No…that’s not the truth,” he laughed.
“Are you going to tell me how I should feel?” I questioned him coldly.
“I’m just telling you what you really feel,” he said shaking his head.
“Oh yeah? You want to know what I really feel?” I started feeling all hot and bothered again.
He just stared at me intensely, the cute boy in him long gone.
“I’m feeling scared of you! I think you are a freaking creep! I think you need some help…and I do not most certainly love you!” there, I said it.
His face just hardened, and he started pulling me to the west. Toward the woods.
“What the hell are you doing Seth? Just let me go!” I had absolutely no idea what was going on in his mind…the hard look on him was even worse than the mental one.
“Shut up! You need to see the truth!” he simply replied.
“Let me go! Please!” I continued trying to rip his arm away as he dragged me into the woods.
We entered the woods, he dragged me further within till we were in between thick pack of trees. He let go of me with almost a push, I realised that his finger marks are been formed distinctly on my skin. Both of us were looking at it. “I’m sorry,” he whispered stroking my cheek.
“I-I…” I wanted to threaten him, but I couldn’t form words.
“Don’t be scared sweetheart…don’t be,” he smiled gently.
Why shouldn’t I be worried? He had dragged me into the forest by force…and had established to me a few minutes earlier that he had completely lost his mind!
“I’m going to show you something…please don’t freak out, okay?” he stared into my eyes. I just continued to blink. I should have shouted or even tried to run away, I had felt confident and told him some truths before hadn’t I? But now, just few minutes after, I couldn’t. I was just numb.
Sighing, he started to remove his clothing. My eyes widened in horror, was he going to…? I couldn’t even complete the question in my mind. But I started trembling. He had kissed me before hadn’t he? But just a kiss was nothing compared to what he probably wanted to do now.
Self-defence…Antony had taught me. I was well prepared. I could fight him and run. Yes…yes, I could.
If only my body responded.
“Don’t freak out,” he repeated, the authority in his tone once more clear. Tossing his shirt on the ground, nodding to me, he went behind the trees.
I was confused now, what was going on?
A few moments passed, and just through the area where Seth had entered, now came out a gigantic wolf. I gasped and stumbled back, my foot slipped and I sat down on the floor, my back against the tree. My palms held the partially exterior roots of the tree so hard that it hurt. I was sure I had scraped both my palms.
The wolf started walking toward me slowly. It stopped when it was just a foot away from me. I wanted to make no noise and pretend I was deadwood, but at the moment I moved my foot and gasped again. But the wolf seemed extremely trained, he didn’t move a bit. He continued to look at me straight ahead when I started to feel the familiarity.
I had come across him before…he was my friendly wolf. Smiling slowly, I stood up carefully.
The one foot distance between us was closed by me, he bent his head down and I started to stroke him. He was absolutely a beauty. Just in his presence, the frozen state of my body seemed to be subsiding, and I was calming down.
“How have you been?” I crooned at him, he just nuzzled my neck. I let out a giggle. I would have gone on petting this monster but Seth’s t-shirt caught my sight.
Moving a little away from the wolf, biting my lip I called, “Seth?”
I didn’t get any replied, just the wolf let out a playful huff. Feeling curious, I walked slowly to the creek of the trees where Seth had disappeared from her eyes. But there was no one there except…his jeans lying on the floor.
Where was he? Had he run away? Why would he run away naked? Well, he did sound psychotic didn’t he?
My wolf seemed to want my attention again; he was poking me with his nose. I turned back to him, his tongue rolled out and he was barring his teeth at me. Barring? No…was he grinning? Did animals laugh? Oh! Was I going crazy too? But he must be, the softness in his eyes definitely didn’t go with a threatening look.
I stared into his eyes; there was something so familiar about them. I had always thought that. Suddenly as if pieces of a puzzle clicked together, I realised whose eyes were similar to my wolf’s. Or rather, whose eyes were exactly the same.
“Seth,” I mumbled.
I looked at his clothes on the ground and back at the wolf. Every time I had come across this wolf, Seth had been around. Always. The first time was when I had been attacked by the other wolves, he had saved me and later I had woken up at hiss place. The second time, I had seen him in the woods close to Cullens’, Seth had been with me, but he hadn’t seen it.
And the third time…was now.
Was it even possible? Seth couldn’t…he wasn’t…? No! It was simply ridiculous…as if such thing even existed in this world. I was just going crazy. The whole scene with Seth had disturbed my mind. I needed some time away from him…I needed some time normal. This wolf…he was just an animal! Nothing more…nothing less. Yes, I had never seen such huge wolves in my life but maybe it was the speciality of the wolves in this region.
Yeah…I should go.
But where is Seth? No, I shouldn’t worry about him! Or even think of him. I should be glad that he just wasn’t around and get away from here. Run back…tell Antony everything and clear things up with Daniel.
I wanted to stroke the earnest beast in front of me once more before I left, but I couldn’t. Instead, I just muttered a lame but thoroughly inaudible, “I have to go.” As if he would understand.
My feet felt numb as I stepped away, I looked back at my-the wolf, he too had turned and was leaving. Sighing and feeling as confused as ever I tried to pick my pace and walk away faster.
“Nicole!” Seth called me.
No…no…oh god no! I didn’t want to see him, but I stopped and turned back.
“Hey,” he waved.
“I-I should go,” I mumbled.
“Did you figure out?” he asked quietly, ignoring me previous comment.
“I should go,” I repeated, not meeting his eyes.
Deep breaths…calm yourself…I chanted to myself.
“Nicole, look at me please?”
I didn’t look up yet, I didn’t want my stupid sudden realisation to be true! I didn’t want to meet his eyes…I didn’t want to freak out!
He placed his hot hand under my chin and lifted my head to meet his eyes. Immediately in response to his touch I trembled and muttered briskly, “don’t touch me.”
“You figured it out, didn’t you?”
It was my turn to stay silent…I had freaked out enough. If I would stay quiet, I wouldn’t shout. I wouldn’t hyperventilate.
“The wolf you saw…” no, please don’t say it. Please don’t. “…it’s me. I’m the wolf. A werewolf.”
“Oh my god!” I breathed out, even though I had been suspicious about it, and a part of me had known it, I didn’t want it to be true.
“I know it’s crazy…but don’t freak, it’s nothing,” he went on calmly.
“Are you mad?! That is not nothing! That is even crazier! That is abnormal!” Okay, I was definitely hyperventilating.
“No, listen its fine! I’m human, it just-”
“No, you are not!” I contradicted shaking my head several times.
“Nicole, just understand please?”
“How can I? You are a monster!” I exclaimed in horror. “Stay away from me!” I shouted and started running away.
I just ran in the opposite direction, hoping that we weren’t that deep in and that I wouldn’t get lost. Luckily, it was just a straight walk and I was out within moments. Even though I had reached the beach, I didn’t slow down. I didn’t want Seth to be anywhere close to me. I simply ran the whole time thinking about the fact that he was the wolf…a werewolf.
As soon as I reached the parking complex, I realised that I was here in my own car. Thank god! I wouldn’t have to walk back. Once I got in the car, it was hard to get it started; my hands were trembling at a very fast rate.
“Calm down!” I ordered myself, rather hysterically. It took me a while to get the keys in the ignition, what with me staring at the windows expecting Seth to be standing there! But with a couple more calming breaths, I finally started the car. Once I got out of the parking lot, driving got easier. My house was quite close by; I would be there very soon. I didn’t have to worry. I would be back with Antony, and if anything went wrong he would protect me. He always did.
As I drove away back to home, the scene that I had just witnessed started feeling weirder and much more impossible. I couldn’t believe what had happened…and for Seth to turn into a---I couldn’t even think it to myself.
And how dare he tell me such sick things?! I was supposed to love him? He seriously had lost his frikking mind! And his nerve to kiss me! But oh, how I wished that I was angry at him only because of kissing me and nothing else.
I finally arrived home, without even bothering to park my brand new car in the garage I ran up to the door. I opened it with fumbling hands, and as soon as I was in I bolted it.
I remained there with my back to the door panting. I wanted to run up to Antony and tell him everything that I saw and I had originally thought that I was going to do that but suddenly I was unsure of that. Would he even believe me?! But that exactly wasn’t the reason why I didn’t want to tell him…maybe I was just scared…I didn’t know.
“Nicole?” I heard his distinct tone coming from the kitchen.
“Y-yeah, it’s me!” I managed to say.
“You’re back? So soon? Come-in here then,” he called out.
“I’m going up!” I shouted and without waiting for his reply, I ran up the steps to my room still feeling wobbly.
I hadn’t been there in my room for more than five minutes when Antony walked in, his eyes widened as he looked at me.
“What happened to you?” he asked.
For the first time since the whole fiasco I wondered how I looked. Probably a mess since I had fallen in the woods, ran real fast and mostly because of the panic etched on my face.
“Nothing,” I whispered.
“Nicole…” he spoke my name with authority.
“What?” as I continued into his earnest worried face, tears started forming.
“Darling…what happened? Tell me, I’ll try and help you…” he said holding me.
“Antony,” I cried hugging him back. I had no idea how to deal with these things, and crying was probably the best solution.
“Shush…” he patted my back.
“Seth kissed me,” I mumbled.
“Was he that horrible that you’re crying?” I felt his chest rumbled as he laughed.
“Shut up,” I scolded.
“Okay, was he that good then?” he asked, joking still.
“No!” I said automatically. But he was good…he was…
“Then?” he continued.
“Tony, he’s a were-”
“Nicole, behind me!” Antony’s playful voice immediately changed into a harder one.
“What?” I questioned when he himself pushed me behind him.
“Antony! What are you-” I started irritated, and stopped as soon as I saw them.
There were three men and a woman in my room. And the craziest thing was there weren’t there few moments before. They were dressed in casual sturdy jeans and shirts, and were barefoot. I stood transfixed staring at them. Their faces were devoid of any expression, they were just extremely pale and hard. But the scariest thing about them was their eyes.
Each and everyone’s were red.
A/N: Well? What do you think of it? I know you hate me at the moment for writing Nicole to be so mean to Seth! But hey, I didn’t want it to happen either. Its just that when I started writing, the words just formed on their own…and the scene which I had originally planned in my head *that definitely didn’t involve Nicole getting so heated up* was no where close to as what I ended up writing. So basically…it is not my fault. I can’t do anything if Nicole is like that right? And I’m going to defend her too…come on, she has lived the whole of her life in NYC! And not used to these superstitions…and how else would she react when a guy who just force kissed her turns in a werewolf…right? Uh…
And Seth…I do want to say that he hasn’t had the best relationship with his imprint yet…and yeah…so he can tend to go a little crazy. And maybe he shouldn’t have taken Emmett’s advice.
Now, there ends the Nicole/Seth sequence. What do you think of the ending?
Okay, write away!
Please do review…
Love it, keep me posted!!!!!!
WHAT?!!!!!?!?!?!?!?! Why are their non vegetarian vampires in her room?
Omg! Team Damon LOL <3vamplvr27<3
