Imprinting. The Truth comes out. Chapter 1
I could feel the wind gliding through my hair effortlessly as I glided from tree to tree in search of a prey to eat. I came across a herd of Deer and took down the biggest buck I saw. I thought Jacob was right behind me, but he must have found his own food. I pressed my lips to the deer's neck and begin to drink. I smelled the familiar woodsy smell that I knew and loved. I turned my head to pounce on him in surprise.
"Ready to meet your..." I trailed off finding myself face to face with a unfamiliar wolf. This one was a normal one, but was unseemingly large for its breed. His teeth were exposed and bearing at me. I was not feeling afraid..I didn't think. Just caught off gard. I growled back at him, Then was cut short by the sounds of multiple growls. I stood to find myself completely surrounded by a pack of wolves. There had to be at least 15 of them! I begin to feel a little nervous. I was 7 years old. I looked the age of 18. But I have never found myself in a real fight. I could feel my knees starting to turn to run. I was searching in my mind to find the right words to yell for help. I opened my mind as wide as I could and called for my dad, "Dad, if you are anywhere near, please, help me.I am really scared"
At that moment, on of the large wolves lunged at me. I fought back as much as I could, but then the weight of the entire pack began to weigh itself on me. Their large paws had almost no effect on me, but my clothes were another story. I screamed for help, wondering where my Jacob was, who had never left my side in my entire life. I felt this relief of the weight from my body, opened my eyes to more intense growling. The entire pack turned from me and pursued this new intruder. It was a larger wolf that I knew and loved, it was Jacob. I watched in Horror as he growled at me to stay back. Final after killing 3 of the wolves they retreated and howled deeper into the woods. Jacob layed there on the damp forest ground bleeding. I tried to hard to retrieve my mind from what I had just watched to the need to be at Jacob's side. I regained composer and rushed over to his side. "Jake, can you hear me? Are you hurt bad? " A low groan came from him
I sighed relief "Oh Jacob, thank goodness your okay!" I threw myself on him and hugged him as hard as I could. I couldn't understand this new feeling that was coming over me. I loved Jacob, he was my best friend. But why did it bother me like this to see him like this?
"Ouch Nessie, careful. "
" Awe Jacob I am sorry, I don't know what I was thinking, I am just so glad that you are ok."
"Nessie?" I heard a familiar deep voice come from the distance. I knew that voice well enough.
"Over here dad"
"Ness is everything okay? Are you hurt? Are you injured in any way?" Obviously looking over my shredded clothes.
"No dad I am fine, but Jacob.." Feeling the tears coming, I didn't know why they were coming so strong. "Jacob he is hurt, he saved me from the Wolves, but they hurt him, I don't know how bad though."
"It's okay Nessie We will get him home and have Carlisle look at him"
Dad picked Jacob up effortlessly and we ran back to the house. Carlisle was waiting and took Jacob up to his office, which was now more like a personal hospital room. I started to follow but felt a hand pull on my arm. I turned around and found my dad pulling me back.
"Let's talk Nessie, I need you to tell me what happened"
I tried to find the words to describe what happened and what I had saw. I felt the sobs starting to build, I felt my mother come and sit by me and put her arms around me.
"It's okay sweetie, perhaps you can show us."
I nodded and put my hands on both their arms, showing them with my gift what had happened. I felt the arms around me tighten.
"Oh Renesmee, I am so sorry, I hope that you are okay?" My mother said while stroking my hair
I put my head down on her shoulder, And began to release the tears that had been building for a while. "Oh mom, what's wrong with me? I felt so scared."
"Honey that's normal, it was a scary thing for you."
"No mom, I am talking about Jacob. I have never felt this fear in my life."
"What do you mean sweetie, what fear are you feeling?" She kissed my tears away.
"I felt so terrified for him, I was so afraid that I was loose him, never see him again, that this could be our last moment together. I feel empty inside, like I had come so close to loosing Jacob and now that has left an empty feeling inside me. I don't understand where these new feelings are coming from. I don't understand, Jacob is my best friend, but now..."
I felt my dad's body tense next to me. I looked up at my parents, they were staring at eachother. I knew that my mom was lowing her shield so that my dad and her could exchange words without me hearing. "WHAT?" I asked impatiently. "What are you two thinking? What are you talking about?"
"Sorry honey," my dad said, "We just knew this day would come, just didn't know when, and how soon."
"I don't understand, what do you mean? You knew I would what?"
They exchanged glances then my mom continued, "We knew that your feelings about Jacob would change someday. We knew that you would begin to see him...in a different way."
"I don't understand whats going on." I stood up and started to pace up and down the floor. My dad came and put his arm around my shoulder.
"Honey, has Jacob ever told you how he feels about you? Has he ever mentioned anything about feelings changing?"
"Have you ever heard of imprinting?"
"Yeah a little, Jacob talked a little bit about it at La Push, about some of the other boys and how they fell madly in love with a girl, then did something like imprinting, that made them both fall madly in love with eachother, and they knew...."
It was all coming together now, I now realized what was going on. Why I was suddenly getting these feelings. I ran up the stairs and into my Grandpa's office, where Jacob was laying on the table with just shorts on. He had bandages all over his body, he looked so helpless. I found my self gazing over his huge chest, the way the muscles defined his arms and chest. The feeling came over me to want to touch him, and run my hands over him and..
"Nessie!" Jacob said happily but softly
"Hey you, How are you feeling?" I looked up at Grandpa who gave me a hopeful smile.
"Eh...I feel great. Just some broken bones that will heal faster then you can run"
There was a long pause as Jake and I stared into eachothers eyes. I heard my grandpa clear his throat and excuse himself from the room. I stepped closer to Jacob I put my hand on top of one of the wrapped up wounds. I couldn't understand what was going on inside me, I looked up at Jacob who was staring at me adoringly. Did he know what I was feeling right now? Did he also know this day would come? I suddenly felt really embarrassed.
"Uh...I got to go, sorry."
I turned and ran for my room. I closed the door and sat on my bed. I knew my dad would be reading my thoughts, so I tried really hard to distract myself. But there was something that was pulling me back towards where Jake was. I had to see him. I suddenly felt a need to be next to him all the time. What does this mean? What does this change?
I sat there in my room for hours not leaving my bed, I wrapped my arms around my knees and pulled them to my chest. I had been trying to sort through my feelings, but couldn't seem to get them anywhere. Was I allowed to feel this way about Jacob? Could I allow myself to feel this way? What would change? MAN EVERYTHING WOULD CHANGE. THIS SUCKS! I heard a soft knock on my door and my dad came in. "hey honey, mind if we talk?"
"sure dad, I guess."
He sat on my bed and opened his arms for me to come and snuggle in. I sighed and gave in, I snuggled in really close to my dad, sometimes it felt like, no matter how old I would get, I would always been his little girl, and he was always going to be my daddy.
"Honey I know that this is hard for you. I have been listening for the past 2 hours downstairs, I know this is not easy. But you can get through this. I felt the same in a way when I met your mother."
" Tell me daddy about that, I love hearing about when you and mom met."
"Honey the first time I saw your mother was in a crowded lunch room. It was her first day of school, because she had just transfered from Pheonix. I sat down at the lunch table with your aunts and uncles, and there she was, staring my way. I couldn't believe how beautiful she was, everything about her was beckoning me. She was definately not like any of the other girls that I had seen in my 108 years of existance to that point. I knew that I would never be the same. The first time that we walked together in our meadow was one of the best days of my life. Your mother knew about me, she had figureed out what I was. And it shocked me that she was ok with it. I was ready to fall deeply in love with her. Ready to let myself be happy for the first time in over 100 years. But still I held back, and was cautious. Your mother on the other hand, was not afraid, she knew it was what she wanted and needed, and went into the relationship without looking back. I guess you could say she inspired me to do the same."
"So you were also unsure about loving her?"
"Oh yes, I was afraid that I would not be able to control myself around her. But you are living proof that I could and did." He stroked my hair. I laid my head down on his shoulder and wrapped my arms around his waist.
"Dad, I don't know what I am suppose to do. This is going to change everything. I don't think that I can live without Jacob in my life. I KNOW that I can't. But what are we suppose to do now?" Where do we go from here."
"Honey I know that I put off that I don't like Jacob all that well. But I truely do love him like a brother and a son. He saved your mother numerous times, and has been a perfect friend to us and especcially to you. I will be happy with what ever you decide. But know this. You can love anyone. But you will truely only ever fall in love with someone once."
He leaned down and kissed my forehead. "Get some sleep honey."
"Okay, I love you dad, give mom a kiss for me."
I laid there in my bed wide awake. What did my dad mean when he said "you can only be in love with someone once" ? Was I in love with Jacob? Or did I just love him? I decided to go find out. I krept up from my bed, out of my room, down the hall to jacob's room. He had moved in with us, it just made sense since he was already here 24 hours a day. I opened the door to find Jacob sleeping soundly on his huge bed. I slid in next to him, which is something we did quite often. Ever since I was a baby, Jacob and I would always sleep together. The warmth that was penetrating from his skin felt amazing. I curled up next to him and breathed his scent in deeply. I felt electric current run through my veins. I looked up to find Jacob staring at me. "You okay Nessie? What's wrong?"
"Nothing, I just missed you, and wanted to be near you." He smiled and wrapped his arms around me and pulled me in close. I breathed deeply calming myself down, I felt his lips against my forehead. "Sleep well Nessie, I love you forever."
I usual said it back, but meaning it only as friends. I became a little thing with us, but now could I truely say it? Did I mean it in that way? Did he mean it in that way? I closed my eyes and fell deeply asleep. I was awoken to cracking. I looked around trying to figure out where it was coming from. CRACK! I stared at Jacob, it was him, what was cracking? I realized that it was just his bones resetting and healing. I looked up at Jacob, who was sleeping soundly. A little too soundly, was he snoring? I giggled softly, and look at his face, with a jolt, a love overcame me. I could feel it from the tip of my head, down to the very bottom of my toes. I felt warm and nervous, excited, sick, awed. I looked at his lips, oh his lips! They were slightly parted and full. I started to lean in closer..closer...closer...Oh gosh! What was I doing? I jumped up as fast as I could and ran for it. I ran and ran and ran.
