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
Chapter 28: When Alice says yes
I was standing in front of the mirror at the end of my closet looking at myself. Antony sat on the couch.
“Are you sure this isn’t too much?” I asked him.
“Nicole! This is supposed to be a costume party, obviously you can’t just turn up there casually,” he sighed.
I took a look at myself again! I was wearing skin tight black leather like pants and a sleeveless black top of the same material. I had never worn so much make-up in my life before…my face was heavily done and my eyes were surrounded by black, and my lips were colored blood red.
Blood red. I thought!
“You look great sweet heart,” Antony said placing his hands on my shoulders.
“I just think I m overdone!” I groaned.
“Look, I spoke to Alice, she specifically explained what kind of a party this is going to be,” he smiled.
“I don’t know where she gets all those ideas…why can’t we just hang out! What’s the need to get dressed up in such a weird way?” I huffed.
“It’s going to be fun!” Antony smiled.
“You aren’t dressed up like me!” I rolled my eyes.
“I m being a sorcerer!” he exclaimed.
“Right…just normally abnormal clothing and a few fake tattoos are nothing compared to how made up I look!” I grumbled.
“Just deal with it…you look perfect, now let me get ready, we’ll leave,” he said and went of the room.
I wore my shoes and put on my cloak which was like superman’s but yeah, this too was black but only on one side. The other side was red in color. I thought about Alice’s party again…we were all just hanging out and Alice had screamed. Everyone had looked at her in alarm except Edward, he had just groaned. Alice was beaming and she sprang up like a perfect ballerina and announced that she was going to plan a “Fancy dress party” and everyone was invited.
At first I hadn’t know what I should dress up as, but then it finally hit! I wanted to be a Vampire…! Dark, dangerous to hell, and killer; well that was the idea but now I regretted it. Maybe I should have chosen something simpler.
“You aren’t going to project out of the mirror, stop staring at it and come-on! We are late,” Antony said peeking in.
I turned and looked at him, “well, well, well, look who has cleaned up,” I laughed.
“Er…how do I look?” he asked.
“Amazing!” I assured him. He was dressed up in a satin t-shirt with a waist coat kinda thing and some loose hanging trousers. They looked modern and ancient at the same time! A tattoo matching his eye color started from the eye lid and went down till the neck.
“Okay Miss Vampire Princess, let’s go?” he smiled holding his hand for me.
“Mr. Sorcerer,” I nodded and we walked down laughing.
The night wasn’t the usual dark, the stars in the sky were seen and there was a faint moonlight. The drive to the Cullen’s place seemed kinda long and I just got nervous. When I had asked Seth about the number of people going to be there he just told me that everyone was invited. Which meant the Cullens’ and Seth’s La Push friends.
“I hope this is the right creek,” Antony said taking a turn.
“Its right,” I told him knowing better.
“Whoa!” Tony gasped.
I looked up from my cell and imitated his gasp. The whole place was amazing! Twinkling lights hung from the trees and it gave the woods a bright set up.
“This is so…” I didn’t have any words. I had just come here last night! The trees were free of all the decorations but now! Wow! How had Alice managed to do this?!
“I know,” Antony agreed. The lights covered the rest of the way until the house came into our view. It was brightly lit too, and I could hear the music playing. Antony parked the car along the corner and got down. Suddenly losing all the nervousness and gaining calm I got down from the car and walked through the open door. Though the outside of the house had been brightly lit the inside had been dimmed. A disco ball hung in the middle and there were lots of balloons and I could hardly see my feet.
“Finally!” Alice jumped in front of us before I could search for people I knew.
She hugged me quickly and reached to give Antony a peck on his cheek. Jasper stood behind her with a beaming smile.
“Sorry for being late…my fault,” I smiled sheepishly thinking about how worried I had been. Everything seemed fin here! Alice looked beautiful! She was dressed as an angel. Her white sparkly dress shone and her wings glittered. Her spiky hair and her radiant smile just added to her beauty! I blushed remembering the dark creature I had chosen to be. A Vampire…just so cliché.
“You look great Alice!” I told her.
“Thanks, and so do you…vampire!” she winked. I blushed again…I hadn’t even put the plastic fangs thinking that would be too much!
She started speaking to Antony as we walking asking his about his costume, I studied Jasper. He was dressed up in a soldier’s uniform looking every bit of a soldier.
“So how come you chose a Vampire?” he asked.
“It just felt perfect,” my eyes widened at my answer. I hadn’t thought this but right now it felt the most perfect.
He just gave me the extremely amused look and smiled. we reached the others, after greeting them I studied their costumes. Carlisle and Esme were dressed just as themselves, and Emmett was dressed up in a bear’s costume. Oh my god! He is the hugest bear I had ever seen.
“Liking it?” he winked.
“Very,” I giggled.
“I bet you aren’t scary!” he boomed and lifted me off the ground.
I squealed holding onto his ‘fur’ “Put me down Emmett!” I ordered.
“If I don’t?!” he wiggled his eye brows. Gosh! Such a kid.
“If you don’t…” I was at a loss to say anything.
“Ha! Cant do anything, I bet,” he laughed.
“I will suck your blood if you don’t,” I said with pretended fierceness.
Everyone was just silent for a while and then started laughing.
“Now you are going to put me down or not?” I asked feeling tired.
“Alright…” he rolled his eyes and dropped me.
“You are such a kid!” I exclaimed.
“And you are such a grandma,” he retorted.
“Yeah right,” I rolled my eyes and looked at others. Rosalie was looking extremely beautiful wearing deep cut long red gown and her hair was half held up and half down, she had put on a tiara. Okay…she was a princess.
“Where are Edward and Bella and Renesmee?” I asked.
“Em…they are outside with the rest of them,” Alice sang and pulled me outside.
Okay! I could see more people now. Edward smiled when I waved at him. Leaving Antony with Jasper and Emmett’s crazy talk I walked over to him. He was dressed up in ancient Shakespearean style. He was wearing pants but. It would have been funny if he hadn’t.
“Who are you?” I asked controlling my laughter.
“I m Romeo,” he sighed.
“Wow…nice! Where’s your Juliet?” I asked, his eyes lit up at once.
“Bella’s over there with Jacob,” he pointed. I looked on the other side. We went over to them, Bella was in no way dressed up as Juliet. In fact she was a dark green fluffy dress with a pointed hat. Her nails were colored black and she had an ancient necklace on.
“She’s a witch,” Edward prompted me.
“Yeah…hey guys,” I greeted them. Renesmee was dressed up in a pink and white simple frock and she carried a basket with flowers. And Jacob looked like a towering giant next to her.
“Hey Nessie, who are you dressed up as?” I asked.
“I m Snow White, and Jacob is my dwarf,” she giggled apparently aware of the standing joke. A 7 feet tall dwarf? Funny…extremely.
I started laughing.
“Hey come-on! I look hot,” Jacob protested.
“Yeah…a hot dwarf, right,” Edward teased.
Okay, so far it was just us. I couldn’t find the rest.
“Where are the others?” I asked.
“They will be here soon…any time” Jacob answered.
“Hmm…okay,” I nodded.
I hung around with them until I started feeling bored, almost half an hour had passed and Seth hadn’t arrived. I texted him ‘where are you? You’re late!’ I waited for his immediate reply but didn’t get any.
Sighing I went and sat on the couch, after few minutes there was moment outside. I looked up hopeful. All of them arrived in a line, first Sam entered with a awkward smile followed by Emily. They were greeted formally by the Cullens and led out in the backyard. They were all dressed in various costumes but I didn’t bother to look around.
“Looking for Seth?” Embry asked me.
“Em, yeah where’s he?” I asked.
“He’s a little late,” he smiled.
“Oh…” like I didn’t know that.
“He’ll be around, come-on!” he said, and I followed him.
Leah and Adam arrived after a while, Leah was looking radiantly happy and Adam looked a very different man. Both of were dressed in earthly colors and told me that they were the Jungle king and queen.
“Where’s Seth?” I asked.
“He’ll be here,” she just nodded.
“Okay,” I didn’t hide my disappointment. There was secrecy in the air; it felt like everyone knew where Seth was except me. And I hated it! Feeling Adam and Leah wanted some alone time I hung out with Antony, Emmett and Jasper. I wanted to feel happy but I just couldn’t…I was irritated rather. I guess they tried to make me have a conversation but my monosyllables weren’t of much use.
Antony knew what was wrong but he didn’t tell anything. I just continued fumbling with my cell phone when Emmett said in a high voice.
“Look whose finally here!” he said.
I at once looked up, it was Seth. He was hardly wearing anything! I mean, he hadn’t put on a shirt showing his chest and abs; and wore low three fourth jeans with shoes. I couldn’t take my eyes off him, he looked so handsome! I wanted to be with him!
Catching my eye he smiled and waved, I just nodded and looked away. I had waited for him so long! And he didn’t even the decency to reply to my texts!
“Hey Emmett, Jasper, Antony,” he greeted the others. I didn’t look at him.
“Hey Nicole,” his voice changed when he spoke my name. Even though the night was cool I was feeling warm. I felt sure I was blushing crazily. Maybe because I was angry.
“Hi,” I said shortly without looking at him and stared at my phone.
“I thought you were looking around for him everywhere and just when he comes-” Emmett was indeed enjoying this.
“Shut up, I wasn’t,” I scowled.
“Nicole…” Antony said softly.
“I-I have to go,” I said and walked off and Antony sighed.
Okay…this was me being difficult. Antony was so used to my mood swings. For a moment I would be okay but then one little irritating thing would set the anger on and I would get irritated by everything. Feeling too suffocated I walked out of the house and outside through the front door. I didn’t want to be irritated in front of others.
“What happened?” Seth asked. Obviously he had followed.
“Nothing,” I answered not looking at him still. I didn’t want to get distracted.
“Then why did you walk off?” he asked.
None of your business I wanted to tell him but I just couldn’t.
“Because I wanted to,” I said stubbornly.
“I m sorry,” his said cutely.
Surprised I turned to him, “why?” I asked suspiciously.
“For being late, I know I promised to be here on time,” his eyes bore into mine.
“Doesn’t matter anyway,” I shrugged refusing to feel anything apart from upset.
“How do I make it up?” he asked.
“You don’t have to do anything, it doesn’t matter!” I sighed in frustration.
He just stared at me.
“What?” I asked feeling self conscious.
“You look beautiful,” he breathed.
I blushed immediately.
“Yeah…whatever,” I mumbled.
“No you really do,” he smiled sweetly.
“Don’t you know? Flattery gets you no where,” I smiled just a bit. Okay, I had no reason to be angry but I was. But I couldn’t be rude to Seth…he was just so sweet.
“It’s not flattery when it’s truth,” he smiled crookedly.
“Yeah yeah…” I sighed; I knew he was flirting a little.
“What are you dressed or undressed as?” I teased.
“I m a…” he didn’t say anything but I knew he wasn’t at loss for words.
“What?” I asked.
“Come-on, I gotta show you something,” he said nervously.
He took my hand and led me into the woods.
