this starts off in eclipse with jake's point of view, but it's different from real story. this is just my version.
a lot of things change for the residents of LaPush and Bella Swan. desire, confusion, and murder weave new paths for each of their lives. secrets reveal themselves and rupture the skin. new passions come to light. can imprinting make love easier?... can true love conquer imprinting?
Jacob Black Forever Chapter 1: Sunrise
i woke up this morning to find my legs stretched over the end of my bed. dang. i had grown again. i sat up and yawned, and stretched and flexed my arms. i felt like a freak. my muscles bulged. i looked in the mirror and decided that maybe they weren't so bad. i put some gray sweat pants over my legs and went to the kitchen for breakfast. dad was already there. i opened the fridge and drank the milk right from the carton.
Billy cleared his throat and folded his arms across his chest. "you're not dressed for school, yet?"
"i'm not going," i winked at him. i took another swig of milk from the carton.
"why not son?" he asked. i thought the answer was obvious.
"dad. look at me. i'm a freak of nature. you think kids at school aren't gonna notice these physical changes and make fun of them?"
"you shouldn't care what they think. you are something special. you have been chosen by nature to be the next alpha in our family tree. if i had gotten that chance, i wouldn't be complaining about it like you are," dad said.
i poured him a glass of milk and set it on the table. then i rolled him under it and made him something for breakfast.
"aren't you going to school today?" he asked. it wasn't a question. more like if you don't say yes then don't bother coming home this afternoon.
"maybe," i said. i put a pop tart in the toaster. i enjoyed testing his patience to an extent. but i always know where my limits are with dad. i looked out the window and the sun's ray beamed down like a lazer.
"you are not a freak. you are special," dad said.
"sure," i responded, still staring out the window. the sun never hurt my eyes when i look directly at it. it's like i'm the same species as the star. we could be one. we could take each other's place in nature. i whipped my head. then i felt my hair and realized the long black locks i use to sport were gone. i always seem to forget that. i rubbed the back of my head. my hair now was short and glossy. if i grew it back out, i would be one hairy wolf.
i put the pop tart on a plate and slid it to dad.
"thanks," he said. "now go put on a shirt and go to school."
i walked back to my room and looked around. what a mess, i shook my head. almost every piece of clothing i owned was either ripped or shredded. i siffed through the piles looking for something halfway decent to throw on. i put on a white shirt. then i took off the sweat pants, they didn't go with the shirt. but they did if i wanted to look like a homeless guy. i slipped on some blue jeans and then stuck my feet into some sneakers. i grabbed my backpack and banged my forehead walking out of the doorway. i said bye to dad and this time i ducked my head as i walked through the doorway of the front of the house. it felt like summer to me, but it was October. i got into my truck and drove to school. i was low on gas but i could make it there and back without running out. i decided to get some gas anyway before i returned home.
the school parking lot was scarce of cars. and i felt guilty for being one of the few kids that had a vehicle. i parked and walked up the steps just as the bell rang for first period. i caught Mrs. Nenette blushing at my physique. i couldn't help but smile, but i worried about giving her the wrong impression. like i said, i couldn't help but smile.
"good morning, Mrs. Nenette," i said.
"good morning, Jacob," she said.
i was the tallest kid walking through these halls. girls smirked at me and flirted. guys looked at me and wondered. maybe they wondered how i get so buff. maybe they wanna ask but are too 'macho' to ask. oh well. it's not like there's an answer i can give them. because there is none that i can share. they will just have to wonder. i walked into Mrs. Ono's class before ducking my head. she smiled and said hello. the thick round lenses of her glasses got jammed into her high set cheekbones as she smiled. i said hello and took my seat. i put my back pack on the floor.
Jacob Black Forever Chapter 2 Rain or Shine
i took out my notebook. i didn't have to take notes. my memory is that great. as i opened my notebook, a note fell out. oh yeah, i thought to myself. a note from Bella that she sent to the house weeks ago. i was so mad i stashed it somewhere and didn't read it. i started unfolding it when i looked up because i noticed Maggie Kioa was staring at me. really.. staring at me. her elbow on her desk, her head turned at me instead of Mrs. Ono. i shook my head and chuckled. maybe i chuckled too loudly.
"Mr. Black," Mrs. Ono called me out.
"yes, ma' am?" i bobbed my head.
"pay attention," she simply said. and then she smiled. some of the guys in the classroom coughed and said some stuff under their breaths. they were just jealous of me. Maggie was still staring. her straight black bangs covered her eyelids.
three periods later, i headed for the cafeteria, patting my stomach. i got in line and waited like everyone else. i saw Jared and Quil on the other side. the crowded side. they saw me and waved. just then everyone, but me, jumped at the burst of thunder outside. and then the rain poured down heavily.
i sat with Jared and Quil. this was Quil's last year at high school. but he did skip a grade. brainiac..
Jared leaned in, his elbows on the table like he was going to tell a secret.
"pack meeting, today. right after we get out of our last classes," Jared said.
"what's up?" i asked, chewing on a tuna sandwich.
"Paul told me to tell you guys that Sam said we need to patrol the Swan's house," Jared said. "we need to decide who's going and at what times."
"geez, Sam," i threw my sandwich down on my trey.
"what's the problem?" Quil asked.
"i don't want to see Bella," i said.
"no one is asking you to," Jared said. "Bella and Charlie don't even have to know we're there."
Jacob Black Forever Chapter 3 Dark Rain
i chewed slowly. as thoughts of the last time i saw Bella crept into my mind, her vampire boyfriend hovering her, protecting her. i cringed. after i darted away from them, i couldn't help but feeling like i had given up. and her destiny, as she had chosen, was now death. my clouded vision had sharpened and Jared was staring at my hand.
"ugh, Jake?" he said. i looked at my hand and saw that i had squeezed my tuna sandwich to death. i shook off the mess and wiped my hands with a napkin. i sighed, already agitated.
"you must feel like crap, man," Jared sympathized. "you lost her to a bloodsucker, but you still gotta protect her."
"yeah, thanks for rubbin it in," i griped. "here. why don't you take this butter knife and stab me in the eye while you're at it." i slid the knife across the table to Jared.
"be cool, man. i was just trying to help. atleast you're not the wolf on the receiver end when you're moaning and crying over Bella Swan," Jared said. i narrowed my eyes at him. but he was right. if i had to listen to my thoughts every time i phased, i would smother me in my sleep. maybe that's what i need, for someone to put me out of my misery.
"you gotta get over it, man," Quil said. "she's not the only girl in the world." Quil looked off and smiled at a girl that was looking at him.
after lunch i bumped into Maggie when i was dumping my tray. suddenly what Quil said about Bella not being the only girl in the world trilled in my ear. i saw Maggie sort of differently now. she was pretty. but she'd be a rebound. i think. and i didn't want to deal with hurting her, especially not in the same way as bella hurt me. Maggie and i could be together. but i just don't see that lasting like it should. so why waste her time.
"hey," she said.
"hey." i dumped my tray as she looked up trying to see into my eyes. i took hers and dumped it for her.
"hey, Jake!" Quil called. i looked up. "come on, man."
Maggie grabbed my arm, meekly, as if she wanted to say something, but the words just wouldn't come out. i could have waited, but Quil's impatience was bordering on my own.
"sorry, Maggie. i gotta go," i said. i removed her hand, politely and then i went and caught up with Quil. whenever we had a pack meeting, we would usually skip school. i say usually, because Sam nor our parents agrees we should skip school just for a meeting. but our priorities are a little different from theirs. Sam said to come right after our last classes. since when do we ever follow his rules. we only have to obey him when we're wolves. i take every advantage of the freedom i have as human because when i'm a wolf, all that freedom is gone. it's my own fault. i could be the alpha in command and tell Sam to step down, but i guess i'm too chicken to actually lead. funny that. i'm afraid of my own destiny.
the moment we stepped outside of the school, the downpour poured on us like buckets and buckets of water being tossed on our heads. Jared, me and Quil jumped into my truck and i drove out to the spot where we meet. i parked in the empty parking lot. we walked into the heavy forest. the sky was fading to dark gray. it was hard to keep my eyes open because of the rain. Sam rushed out, saw us, and sighed.
"boys, since when does school end before 3?" he said, his face was hard and his expression said he was extremely annoyed right now. Paul sat on a tree stump. he snickered at us. "lets wait for the others..." Sam's voice, same bass level as the thunder that beat like a drum, trailed off.
