(A/N): I would like to apologize for not updating sooner! So I'm really REALLY REALLY REALLY SORRY!

I dedicate this chapter to TheMasaltoff, Baby- emo, Lozza, and EdwardsBella16. Thank you so much for reviewing!

Oh, and I thank all of you for being so patient with my slow updating (so please don't hate me lol)! ENJOY =D

This morning I woke up and Jacob wasn't next to me. Oh well, maybe he just got up earlier.

I stretched and got up to make the bed. I went over to my suitcase, picked out a pair of jeans w/ a cute V-neck shirt and headed to the bathroom to get changed. There I brushed my hair, deciding to put it in a ponytail; of course I had to do my…business (if ya know what I mean. Lol), brushed my hair and teeth.

When I finished washing my face, it started to smell…weird.

Is that smoke?!

I ran out of the bathroom and into the kitchen, where the smell was coming from. There I found the culprit:

JACOB.

LOSER was standing over the toaster, staring at the burning pieces of bread inside.

Marching in his direction, I unplugged the device and slapped his arm; hoping that it hurt. "What is your problem? Can't you see that the toast was burning? Gosh! And you're standing right next to it too." – bumping my hip into his- "Move over, I'm making breakfast!"

"Ok, ok, I'm sorry," he held out his hands defensively.

I brushed past him and threw away the destroyed pieces of bread. "Good morning Billy! What would you like for breakfast?"

Billy, who sitting in the living room looking at me and Jacob with such amusement, said, "Whatever your making is fine Emi." He smiled then turned to Jacob. "Son, if you end up burning down my damn house trying to make food, I'm going to make sure you rebuild it no matter how hard it may be." He turned his attention back to the TV.

Jacob shook his head and sat the table watching me cook.

I ended up making pancakes and we all held somewhat of a conversation. Karin called me a little after telling me she was gonna pick me up but didn't know where. So I gave her the address and she said she would come get me after she got Alexis.

Fifteen minutes later, we heard a car pull up and honk. I grabbed my purse and asked Jacob again if he wanted to go but he said "No, it's ok. Guy stuff remember?" I rolled my eyes, told Billy where I was going, and ran out the house into the car.

As soon as we arrived in Port Angeles we hit the mall.

"Ok so where do ya'll wanna go first?" Karin asked as we came in through the food court.

"It don't matter," I replied.

"Hey, Victoria's Secret has this SUPER SALE going on. All lingerie is like 2 for $15," Alexis added.

"We likey," Karin and I mocked.

When we entered Victoria's Secret, there was a group of guys standing in the corner of the store. Kind of cute actually. Of course, they just HAD to acknowledge our appearance. Not that I mind but really, they have no lives. I mean really, only a complete IDIOT would go to a store like this and drool over girls they won't/can't/never have.

Well anyways yeah, we noticed them watching us. But we came here to shop and that's what we're gonna do. Damn it!

"OMG I totally love this purple one," Karin held up a very lacey set that had designed hearts intricated in the fabric.

"That would look totally good on you," Me and Alexis agreed.

"Hey Emi, you should try these ones on," Alexis threw two sets at me. One of them was blue that had little winking wolf cartoons and the other was black w/ graffiti all over it saying 'Kiss me' and 'Peace' and 'Love', etc., in bright neon colors.

"Sure I will," I laughed. "Here, try this on," I threw a lacey light green set with daisies all over at her.

"Fine," Alexis smirked.

"Well, fitting room time," Karin announced. We each went into our own stall. Those guys we saw earlier we're watching us as we walked by. I ignored them and carried on with my business.

Once in the stall, I got undressed and tried on the set with the wolves on it. And let me say…it is GORGEOUS. It totally accentuates my curves in every place. AND…the wolves are so CUTE.

"Hey guys get out here," Karin called.

I came out the same time Alexis did to find Karin checking her body with the purple lace on. We busted out laughing.

"Oh whatever! You know it looks good," she rolled her eyes at us.

"No it does. It's just the fact that you called us out to see," Alexis replied.

"But hey, I think we all look nice," I looked in the mirror. We looked at each other's outfit and commented on them some more. But in the end we decided to get them since they were on sale.

"I'm liking the sound of that," I heard a voice. We turned around to find the group of guys staring at us. They are SO freaky.

I put on my most innocent smile and walked up, still in lingerie, to the guy who I assumed spoke since he was punching fists with some of his friends. "Is there something I can help you with?"

"Take that off and we'll all be okay," he smirked. His friends laughed.

"O ok, how about this?" I fake laughed and kneed him in his crotch. He hunched over in pain.

That was followed by the sound of a slap on one of his other friend's faces for grabbing Karin's butt.

Actually… make that two; well that was more of a punch. He just touched Alexis.

The people in the store erupted in a chorus of "OOOOOOOO'S." We all went back into our stalls, changed back to our regular clothes, paid for the stuff, and left.

I got a pretty sundress from Charlotte Russe, Japanese Cherry Blossom perfume from Bath & Body Works (A/N: my absolute fave), and a really cute yellow bikini from Forever 21. I even bought Billy a thank you present and got the guys some nice shirts.

After walking around for 3 hours, we went to the food court.

"Wow, I've walked so much my feet are gonna fall off," Karin said as she plopped down in a chair as did me and Alexis.

"I hear you Twin," I told her.

"Ya'll are funny," Alexis played with the straw in her coke.

"Well sorry we're not as athletic as you," Karin stuck her tongue out. Alexis returned the gesture and I rolled my eyes laughing.

"I still can't believe that happened to us in Victoria's Secret," Alexis laughed.

"Oh my God, I know. Ya'll shoulda seen his face when you guys smacked him," I giggled.

"Oh yeah? Well at least we didn't knee him in the crotch," Karin eyed me specifically with a smile. "I don't think he'll be making any babies in the near future."

"Awww who cares? It's not like he uses them anyways. Besides, dumbshit deserved it," I replied nonchalantly.

"True," they said in unison.

I took a bite of my pizza and sipped some of my coke; Mostly focusing on the noise in the mall. So many things were going through my mind.

"Are you sure you're doing ok?" Alexis brought me out of my stance.

"What? Oh…yeah. Why wouldn't I be?"

"Well because of your mom. I know how much you loved her. It's ok to be upset."

I felt a knot in my throat as tears threatened to spill from my eyes. "I know," my voice betrayed me.

They both stood up and hugged me.

"Hey it's ok. Don't worry bout it. Whatever happens you know you always got us," Karin gave me a smile and hugged me tight. So did Alexis.

"Thanks," I said with a smile. Times like these, I'm really glad their my friends.

"So… how's it going at the Black's house? Well… mostly between you and Jacob," Alexis smirked, obviously trying to lighten the mood.

I rolled my eyes. "Alexis there is nothing going on between me and Jacob and…things are going good."

"So how long are you staying there?" Karin asked.

"Till Tuesday. When I went to my house to pick up some stuff my aunt called saying she's gonna finish school over here. So she's gonna be moving in with me on Tuesday."

"That was fast. I wonder how Jacob took the news," Alexis smiled.

"HA HA, very funny. Actually, he took the news very well. Quil, Embry, and Jacob know her so she's like an aunt to them too. He understood," satisfied with my answer.

"O-K-AY," she sing-songed.

"So what's up in your lives?" I asked.

"Eh… same old same old," Alexis sighed.

"Me too. I need some excitement in my life," Karin said; stuffing a burrito in her mouth. Alexis rolled her eyes and continued eating her sushi.

We ended up staying at the mall a few more hours and then we headed home. Karin dropped me off first.

"Thanks for today. I needed it," I said hugging them goodbye.

"Don't mention it," Alexis replied.

"Yeah! See ya at school tomorrow," Karin called out as she drove away.

I knocked on the door. When it opened it revealed a very tired Jacob. "I was waiting till you got home so you wouldn't get locked out. Where'd you go? MILAN?" He smiled as he gestured to the bags in my hand.

"Oh whatever. Thanks for waiting," I stuck my tongue out at him. He shook his head and went back to the couch.

After taking a quick shower, I helped Billy to his room and helped him get in bed. He thanked me before falling asleep again. Jacob was still on the couch.

"So… what'd you get?" he asked.

"Oh… just some stuff," I smiled as I sat next to him. Thinking about how I got him something.

"Uh huh… well I'm gonna go check it out," he said slowly as he jumped up and ran to the room.

"Hey," I ran after him.

By the time I got to his room he had a bag in his hand. "What's this and WHAT are you using it for?" He blushed as he held up the blue lingerie set with winking wolves.

"Uh… none of your business… um…. Gimme that," I snatched it from his hand and put it back in the bag and stashed it in the suitcase.

I hit him in the arm. "Ow," he chuckled.

"Go to sleep," I pushed him on the bed.

"Ok ok," he scooted over and patted the spot next to him. "Come and join me?"

"Sure, sure Black," I giggled and got in next to him. He put his arm around my waist as I put my hand lazily on his chest.

"Hey Em," he whispered.

"What?" I looked up at him.

"I really got to see you dressed in nothing but that one day," he smirked.

"Perv," I rolled my eyes and turned the other way around.

"Come on. I was just kidding," he pleaded.

"GO. TO. SLEEP," I slowly annunciated.

In return, he put his arm around my waist again. I could hear his steady breathing and with that I feel asleep.

(A/N): Ok so I know it's like REALLY late for this but I can't believe Michael Jackson died. So in his honor im going to have some chapters named after some of his songs and one complete chapter will be all about his death. But that won't be until like the 30's chapter.
