PLEASE READ:

- There is NO Bella Swan in this story! I hate her character so she does not exist here.
Therefore the plot from the books did not happen!

- Obviously I tweaked things around to fit with my own plot.

Adore You - [Seth Clearwater]

[01] – dreams

Growing up I knew exactly what my family and friends were. Just like I knew they could shift into wolf forms, I also knew about the vampires that roamed the earth.

How could I not know?

When I was eight years old a nomad vampire passing through La Push claimed I was his singer. Of course I didn't really know much at that age, it was all things of fairy tales in my eyes. So when the nomad took me- I was scared of the red eyes and the huge wolves that tore what I believed was a man apart.

I was told the legends were true soon after. I said I understood but let's face it- I didn't make that actual connection until much later.

I've been told that about 6 months after mom had given birth to me there was a bonfire held in my honor. Here the Quileute Pack and the elders would officially meet me to welcome me into the family. Mom and dad stood proudly with me snuggled in their arms as people came up with blessings.

As pack members came up one by one I watched with avid curiosity. When the last two stepped up one of them froze, eyes wide as he stared at me like I was the light at the end of a dark tunnel.

Jacob once told me that dad came close to phasing for the first time in a couple of years. Obviously he was not very pleased with someone imprinting on his recently born daughter.

By the time I was four years old, I was beyond attached to him. Mom thought it was cute. Dad- well he still hadn't forgiven my imprint over the fact my first word was his name and not a variation of "dad."

At nine years old, he was like an older brother. He was always there by my side and I always wanted him there. Mom says that it will always be like that.

When I was thirteen, everything started to change. I did not hang out with him as much but his presence was always there. But it was starting to feel awkward for me. Instead I found a new friendship in Gabriel Cameron, who was Jared and Kim's son. It worked out since Gabriel was only a couple months older than me.

Gabe and I entered high school at the same time as best friends. There was no drama between us or with the other students, which was great. It was a pleasant freshmen year filled with friends and schoolwork.

The second year started off the same way. However, I had started to think about my imprint situation. Often I wondered how Claire managed her own relationship with Quil when she was my age. The whole thing was stressful for me, especially since no one would outright confirm or deny that yes I was his imprint. I knew though.

At the same time he was driving me up the wall. He was overprotective and I couldn't really have male friends outside of the pack. His decisions concerning me also sometime overruled dads at times.

The summer before junior year of high school, I finally got the courage to approach him about what our relationship could become in the future. I had hope that someday we could have what my parents did. However, it was hard to be hopeful when I saw a girl and him kissing outside a coffee shop. The present in my hand dropped and I walked away ignoring his cries. I spent the rest of the night numb and cuddled up to my best friend until my parents forced me back home.

They all made me talk to him.

He offered explanations and apologies.

I never brought up the reason I had gone looking for him to begin with.
I shrugged it off pretending everything was alright but it was never the same after that.

I wasn't the same after that. Everyone was being extra nice and careful around me, especially him.

I grew irritated with my surroundings and dreamed of leaving to another state that offered new adventures.
But why did it have to be dream?

Junior year, I started planning and preparing. I changed drastically in every way, both physically and mentally. One day I left for school and came back with my hair cut short to a sleek bob and a lighter shade of brown. I pulled myself to the top of the class and threw myself into extracurricular activities. As I gradually changed, I pulled away from the pack, except for Gabriel who became my rock. At the pace I was going everyone was worried and confused.

Summer, a couple weeks before senior year started Gabriel came down with a fever. The next time I saw him he was way taller than me, his skin was warmer than usual and he wasn't the same scrawny boy. When transformed he was a beautiful gray wolf, sadly I realized that I could no longer reveal my plan to him.
I would not risk having him find out.

As the year progressed I stopped avoiding everyone. When I wasn't busy with school of clubs I was at home with my parents. If I wasn't with them every now and then I would spend time with him, cataloging his smiles in my mind for when my plan worked.

Spring time approached and my acceptance letter to Washington State came in- everyone was proud. In my room underneath a floorboard I gazed at the many acceptance letters that I hid from the others, one of these would determine where I would live for the next four years.

Soon after came graduation day. My parents and the pack were ecstatic as I walked across the stage graduating with the highest honors, Gabriel not too far behind me. The fond eyes, the bright smile, and the loving hug he gave me made me falter- the guilt was creeping up.

Little by little time passed and everything was ready. But the hardest parts were coming up.

On the last week of July a couple of days before it was time, there was a bonfire.

There were people everywhere; shifters and imprints, family and friends.

At the moment one of the elders' voice rang strong and true as he recited our tribe legends.

Everyone was gathered around the fire silently listening, some looking solemn and nodding along with pride. Others I could see tightening their hold on their mates looking at them lovingly- it only served to make me guilty.

At my side, he sat patiently, a wistful expression on his handsome face. It made me cringe with shame that I had this plan where I would follow my dreams but I would be leaving him behind. Despite everything he was always there waiting to catch me… I just didn't want to be caught, yet.

My gaze floated to the burning fire watching it crackle. With a small sigh I shuffled off the log and sat in front of him, startling him. My eyes fluttering shut blocking out the flames, I leaned my body back against his chest letting myself be consumed by the warmth. I could feel him staring at me before relaxing, his arms enveloped me and resting his chin on my head he inhaled contently. I let myself fall into the warmth and I reached up to hold his hand and drifted off to sleep.

I woke up the next morning in my bed completely wrapped around him basking in the warmth of his skin. We both laid there silently and awake, just taking it in. Within my line of sight I noticed something lying against his chest, startling me.

My fingers trembled as they touched the cool surface of the silver dog tags hanging on a chain. The same copy of the dog tags that lay under my own shirt burned against my chest.

"You kept them?" I murmured in disbelief.

"I've kept everything you have ever given me," he whispered as he played with my short hair.

Saying nothing I traced the engraved names on the metal and let myself drift to sleep.

When I woke up hours later he was gone and in his place I found a medium sized plush polar bear, like the ones he used to give me as a child.

Smiling sadly I got ready to spend the day with my parents.

I stood in my somewhat empty room with a small smile, beside me lay the last of my suitcases at my feet. On my bed I placed my true acceptance letter along with two envelops- one for my parents and one for my imprint.

"You ready to go?" Gabriel asked placing a comforting arm around me.

"Yeah," I replied softly grabbing the plush polar bear as we walked out of my parents' house and to the car.

Hours later we stood hugging each other for a long while, just enjoying this moment while we could.

"I'm going to miss you so much," he muttered. "We haven't ever been away from each other…"

"I know Gabe. It's going to hard functioning without you," I joked. Kissing him on the cheek I untangled myself picking up my bag and headed through the checkpoint.

Just as I was leaving to find my area I heard him calling my name. It was heartbreaking, the sadness and the desperation was clear but I couldn't let myself turn around to see him one last time.

Tightening my grip on the plush bear I continued walking without backwards glance.

If I saw him- I knew that I would not go.

After all I, Nicole Uley, am irrevocably in love with Seth Clearwater.

"Adore You" – Miley Cyrus

Baby, baby, yeah, are you listening?
Wondering where you've been all my life
I just started living
Oh, baby, are you listening?

When you say you love me
Know I love you more
And when you say you need me
Know I need you more
Boy, I adore you, I adore you

Baby, can you hear me?
When I'm crying out for you
I'm scared oh, so scared
But when you're near me
I feel like I'm standing with an army
Of men armed with weapons, hey, oh

When you say you love me
Know I love you more
And when you say you need me
Know I need you more
Boy, I adore you, I adore you

I love lying next to you
I could do this for eternity
You and me - we're meant to be
In holy matrimony
God knew exactly what he was doing
When he led me to you

When you say you love me
Know I love you more (I love you more)
And when you say you need me
Know I need you more
Boy, I adore you, I adore you

When you say you love me
Know I love you more
And when you say you need me
Know I need you more
Boy, I adore you, I adore you
