My Dad and I are going to visit Charlie Swann today. His daughter just came into town, so we figured we'd stop by. Bella and I used to play together all the time when we were little, whenever she visited Charlie.
She was clumsy and scared when ever we'd go on 'adventures' I'd like to call them. Going in her backyard, which is mostly woods and climbing huge boulders and trees. She'd always sort of whimper and I'd just laugh and say 'C'mon, Bella, It'll be fun'. I miss those days, she never visits Charlie anymore. But, Today's different, because I've phased now. I'm a werewolf, I can't get mad at her.. I just can't... Whatever she says, I can't... I'll hurt her...
I gaze at the small white house, It seems to of changed since the last time I visited. I got out of the truck slowly, slamming the car door a bit too loudly. Let's hope Billy, my dad, doesn't get too mad.
"Nice to see you again, Jacob, Billy." Charlie said in his deep, gruffy voice.
"You too, Charlie." Billy said with much enthusiasim.
We shook hands with Charlie, then all looked as Bella came walking out of the house.
It hit me like a truck. It felt like a course of electricity was flying through me. Gravity was moving, my heart was racing like I was falling off a 50 story building. My eyes felt like I was seeing the sun for the first time. I was amazed and stunned. But, This was all happening inside of me. No one else could tell this was happening, it wasn't happening to them. I blinked, and everything but the forcefull gravity of my heart and emotions, my feelings were changing. I loved this girl in front of me. I loved her like no one else would. She was my everything, the earth, sun, sky, air, and light. Pure in everyway. I had to use all of my strength to not rush twords her and hug her and kiss her. To make her happy, and give her everything she wanted. I had no idea what just happened. I did like Bella, I always had, but this force and electricity had never knocked through me before. And, now, I realized everything. I saw HER, for the first time. Like a blind man seeing his son for this first time. I almost burst into tears. Then reality came back to me.
"You're joking. Oh my god. This is just perfect." Bella squealed. My heart melted at the sound of her voice. I had to try my best to not fall on the floor, start crying and screaming 'I love you, Bella'.
"I totally rebuilt the engine." I said calmly, It sounded normal enough. I tried to glance at her eyes but they were always looking at something. A stab of sadness prodded me at my side. I started to walk around the front of the car. Before I could get around the first side... Bella hits me with the door of the truck. I didn't mean to make a sound, it didn't hurt but she quickly said
I got into the truck and started looking around. My eyes fell on her again. Her chestnut hair, long and wavy, paled skin and rings and bracelet on her hands.
"You gotta double pump the clutch, but other than that, you're set." I said, a smile in my voice and on my face.
"And that's this one?" She questioned hitting a knob.
"Yup, right there."
She blinked hard then looked straight into my eyes and asked
"You never mentioned your name... I'm Bella, Have we met before?"
My eyes grew wide with amazment, confusion, happiness, and joy. I'd forgotten what she said for a minuet. Her eyes were a deep brown, layers and layers of different shades and depth. I suddenly felt very nervous and blurted out
"I--I--I'm-- I'm Jacob..." I STUTTERED? Oh this is not going to go well. I mentally kicked myself.
Then she smiled. So real, happy, and calm. I felt my eyes turn sort of glassy, but I didn't turn away.
"So, Do you wann'a ride to school together?"
"I--I go to school on reservation...But, maybe I could switch..." I thought about that for a second. What if Billy came unglued or something? Ehh.. I didn't care now. If I could be with Bella, I think I'd be more than okay.
I watched her intently, memorizing her over and over. To me she was flawless, an angel sent from heaven. Her cheeks started to blush pink, but she giggled a little then said quietly
"I don't want to cause you and your Dad any trouble. You don't have to."
"No.. I'll ask, if you're still cool with riding together." I smiled hugely. Wow, today is going GREAT. It felt like my whole body was vibrating. She smiled back at me, then I remembered Sam, and the others. Man, they're going to FREAK. I laughed like a maniac inside my head. Then I tried to make up a reasonable exscuse. Hmm..
" Could you excuse me for a little while... I need to go... somewhere... Uhh... Bye.. Oh hey! Call me!" I folded a piece of paper and wrote my number on it at the speed of light. I finished making it into an airplane as I got out of the truck. I threw it to her arm, gently then waved and winked. I felt courage boom out of me. I ran into the woods and phased running as fast as I could to the pack. I felt like dacing, or flying, or maybe even falling.
I'd imprinted on Bella Swann. The girl of my dreams. Finally.
