Like A Mom

Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs (who owns the Mercy Thompson and everything with it.)

So each chapter will be a one shot. If I have any that would be more than one I hope to have that as just a different story and not part of this one. I know I am bad with grammar so you don't need to tell me. I'm writing this because I enjoy the books so much and like to write.

This is a really short one that is Jesse's take on Mercy plus Mercy and Adam.

Jesse's POV

I sat on the couch in the living room and could hear my dad and Mercy laughing in the kitchen. They were making dinner and from what it sounded like they were throwing food at each other and not cooking it. I gave a smile. Never had mom and dad done anything like that. In fact if I really tried to think back I don't think they were anything like Mercy and dad. Dad smiles more and is really happy. Not just the happy that comes from take care of mom but true happiness.

'Mercy did that for him.' I thought to myself. I always thought that Mercy was cool, she is the only one who would do something even though she knew dad would get mad. I can talk her. Not just the kind I do with my mom but the real girl talk. I can talk to her about boys, school, wolves and even just random stuff. We eat like cookie dough and brownies.

'I can never do that stuff with mom' I thought to myself, my mood turning sour.

Mercy does a lot of stuff for me. She picks me up from school, she drives me to my friends, and she cover for me when I want to go see my boyfriend.

'Really the more I think of it….Mercy is like a mom. She does mom things. Things that even my own mom doesn't do.'

Smiling I got up and went into the kitchen to see how everything was going.

I took out my phone and took a picture before they could move.

"What did you do?" I said walking in and looking around with wide eyes. Mercy had flower in her hair and on her face. It stood out against her darker skin. Dad had a raw piece of meat sticking out of his mouth. He turned to look at me and took the meat out of his mouth.

"Well-" Mercy started before I interrupted her "Wait! I don't want to know!" I took one more look around the very dirty kitchen. Flour was everywhere and there were chunks of meat all around the kitchen.

"Sending to Gabriel…and a few other people." I said as I looked at my phone and smiled.

Dad looked around the room and smiles. He looked at Mercy and then at me. "Maybe we should just order in tonight."

"Pizza!" Mercy and I yelled at the same time.

That night after the kitchen was clean and the pizza was gone I stopped in front of dad and Mercy. They sat on the couch and were watching some odd show.

I held out a present to Mercy. She looked at it and then at me.

I smiled a little and said in a voice I didn't mean to sound so small.

"Well, you act like one, you do stuff like one and care about me. So…Happy Mother's day Mercy."

I hope everyone liked this one. Also I hope you like the way it ended. Personally, I feel that Mercy and Jesse have a better "mother/daughter" relationship then Jesse has with her own mom. Please review and let me know what you thought. I'm sorry if you didn't like it. I really do love theses book and writing. Even though my writing skills are not the best. Leave a review and let me know what you think please.

Until next time-
