My lovely readers! Chapter 17 is FINALLY HERE! I worked really hard on this lol so I hope you like it. There's some Paul POV in here and I tried, I really true for a lemon but I'm a huge clockblock so it's like lemonade. But still. Anyway thanks for all your support. So finally here is chapter 17! Oh and for pack mind stuff I've just started putting who says what because in past chapters people were getting confused as to who is talking. I don't really like it this way and I don't know I in going to keep doing it but I figured I'd try it out.

Chapter 17

Paul POV

Where is he? I just want to find this son of a bitch and go home.

Sam: I know Paul. I think we all want to find him so Bella can come home. Although I don't think she'll be happy about this.

Paul: I don't give a shit. That filthy bloodsucker is either going to turn or eat the both of them and I'm not going to let that happen. End of story.

Sam: listen, I know you hate this, I know it's hurting you, but you can't act so irrationally. That's how mistakes get made and people get hurt.

Paul: I'm sorry.

God I needed her. When I got her text I couldn't keep my promise to her. I didn't think, just phased and started running as fast as I could. I needed to get to her. I needed her to be ok. Here with me. In Forks. Safe. In my arms.

Bella POV

"How are we going to do it? I've already tried once and... we all know how that ended." Emily spoke morosely as we tried to make a plan.

Are you okay?

I jumped at my phone to answer it. I knew it was Paul. Before I got to it, Emily snatched it from my reach.

"We need them." she had a stern look on her face.

I shook my head.

'No. I said no. It's final. End of discussion.'

She rolled her eyes mumbling something about how its the best attack method. I didn't care. If any one of the pack got hurt or killed, I'd never forgive myself. And I'd never forgive her.

'Shut up. I'm not risking a member of the pack.'

"What if we put close ones on the line too? I've got some old vamp friends who could help us. And so does Alex. Them combined with your pack... we'd be nearly unstoppable. Then you and your mom could stay human, I'd be set free of him, and everyone leaves happy."

I got up and went to my room for the night. I had to think about it.

Phil came into my room later that night.

"I know you're not crazy about the idea of a step dad. I know you're less crazy about me being a vampire. But your mom is in love with me and I love her. She's going to be one of us."

I nodded my head.

'What does that have to do with me? I'm sure you make my mother happy but that doesn't mean I should have been taken away from my friends and family for this. I want to go home to my own fiancé. I don't want to be one of you, I want to stay human, at home, with my pack.'

"Oh." his eyebrows knitted together.


"I guess I didn't think about it like that. You wouldn't be mad if your mom was one of us?"

'No. I'd come visit once she's under control but I don't want to be one of you.'

"What about your pack back home? They won't try to attack me? And your mom?"

'I can guarantee that you won't have any problems with them if you just let me go home. But my werewolf is a little on the impulsive side and if I know him, he's on his way here to take me home and probably looking for a fight as we speak. With the rest of the pack. So you have two options. Let me go home to my family back in la push. Or have la push come to you and have a fight.'

He got a very frightened look in his eye. He must have seen what my pack is capable of.

"Let me talk to Renee and I'll arrange for your flight back home. Tonight."

I ran to Emily's room

'Plan's off. Phil is letting me go home!'

"I'm so very happy for you!" she pulled me into a big hug and helped me pack my bag.

I grabbed my phone and texted Paul.

I'm coming home tonight. You see? I told you I could handle this. I love you and I'll see you soon.
- Bella

Fuck I love you so much. Do you want me to pick you up at the airport?

If you can lol I know you're probably on patrol tonight.
- Bella

Yeah but I can have someone cover for me until I get back
- Paul

Ok I'll let you know when I'm at the airport. I love you and I'll see you soon
- Bella

Emily came into my room. "Be careful. Here's my number if you ever need anything. Please keep in touch. The wedding will be soon and I'd love for you to be there and your mom will too. And if love to get to know you before the wedding."

I nodded and continued to pack my bag. Emily helped me get it to the car and drove me to the airport.

At the airport. It's a 4hr flight. So I'll be landing in Port Angeles at about 11pm. Terminal A. Gate 14.

I'll be there

I have to turn my phone off now but I'll text you when I land. I love you

I love you too

Paul POV

I phased back in to let Sam know.

Paul: Bella is flying in tonight. I'd really like to pick her up from the airport Sam. But to do that, I'd have to leave for Port Angeles at like 9:30.

Sam: sure if you can find someone to cover for you.

Paul: thank you do much Sam

I phased out at ran to Sam's house. I knew some of the younger boys who have been dying for patrol duty would be there. I spotted Collin right away.

"Collin. Can I talk to you outside real quick?" he looked terrified. Poor kid probably thought I would try and kill him. God knows I would have tried to the other night if Sam wasn't there.

"I need a favor from you, kid."

"What?" Still so scared. Fuck. He isn't going to do this for me.

"I'm on duty till 12 but Bella is flying in tonight at 11 and to be there on time to get her I'd have to leave at 9:30."

"Ok..." he looked less scared I tried to give him a comforting smile.

"Do you think that maybe you could cover for me?"

His face lit up. "Yes yes yes!" Pup was so excited.

"Thanks, kid." I patted him on the back. "I'll come get you at the right time."

"Thank you so much for the opportunity, Paul."

I turned back to the house "No prob pup." I looked at him. "Just don't fuck it up." I phased back in and secured the la push permitter.

Bella POV

It was almost time to see him. The flight was almost over. And I was literally twenty minutes away from Paul. I couldn't help the big smile spreading across my face.

The woman next to me asked "Are you flying to see your boyfriend?" I turned to her and nodded my head. "Is he handsome? What is he like? Where are you from? Where is he from?"

I had a pen in my pocket and looked for paper. I used one of the sky mall catalogs to write on.

Yes, he's very handsome. He's amazing, we recently just got engaged and I had to go to Arizona to see my mother. I've missed him so much. I'm from Forks, Washington. He's from La Push, it's about twenty minutes away from me.

"Honey, why do you write on papers instead of talking to me?"

I'm actually mute and I wasn't sure if you knew sign language.

"Oh. Well, are you excited to see him?"

Yes I'm very excited.

"How long were you away?"

Three days.

"Ah to be young and in love again. How old are you..."

Oh my name is Bella. And I'm 17, almost 18. I turn eighteen in two and a half weeks. He's 18.

"I wish the both of you very many happinesses!"

We then got out of our seats, grabbed our carry ons, and got off the plane.

I couldn't hide the defeat on my face when I stepped out into the airport and didn't see him.


I looked around frantically. Where the hell was he? I huffed and searched some more. My phone vibrated in my pocket.

Turn around

I looked and there he was standing there at the other side of the terminal with that million watt smile of his. I froze up, remembering this moment forever. He started to come closer. I ran for him. I had missed him so much.

He scooped me up and spun me around before he kissed me so hard I thought my lips would fall off. "I love you so much. God, I missed you." I nodded and leaned up to kiss him again. He gave me a smile, kissed me one more time, and led me out to his truck.

I got in and couldn't help my self. I threw myself at him. I needed to be close to him. He couldn't help himself either. He grabbed me by my middle and pulled me on top of him. God, I loved kissing him. His soft warm lips would be the end of me.

I don't know how long we were like that but his phone rang so I had to detach from him. He held me there on top of him still. I went for his neck because, in all honesty, I didn't want to stop. Ever. He sucked in a hard breath and answered the phone.

"Hello?" I heard mumbles on the other side. Paul tried, he really tried so hard to keep his breathing even. I bit down a little on his neck and he threw his head back trying not to make a sound and hissed out a big breath. His grip around my hip tightened a little and he pulled me closer.

He spoke in short clipped sentences. He gripped my middle and rocked his hips against mine. His hand slipped to my thigh. He hung up up the phone. He growled and flipped us over so that he was on top. "You can't tease me like that." he growled at me. He went straight for my neck, licking and kissing and sucking. I sucked in a deep breath. He bit down and I rocked my hips against his. He growled. He captured my lips with his again.

He came to a sudden stop. His body tensed up. He stopped responding to me. I looked up at him in wanting. "We have to stop." I shook my head no and tried to kiss him again. He pushed me away and lifted himself off of me. He just hovered there. "No Bella. I'm not gonna let you lose your virginity in my truck. End of discussion."

He slid over to the driver's seat and I rolled my eyes. It didn't really matter where or when as long as it was with him.

It was a 40 minute drive. And it took me everything I had not to just launch myself at him again. He was tense too. His knuckled were clenched so tight around the steering wheel that they were almost white. I turned on the radio to ease the mood in the truck.

By the time we got home, I had fallen asleep. I woke up in bed. Alone. There was I note on the nightstand.

On patrol. Be home soon. I love you. I'm sorry about tonight. I'll make it up to you. Soon.
- Love Paul.

I sighed and fluffed a pillow. He'd better make it up to me...

So? What did you think? Review please? I love reviews, they let me know what I'm doing right or what I'm doing wrong.

I wrote this on my iPod, so I think it seemed a lot longer than it actually was when i updated. And I'm sorry for any grammar things. You guys know how it is with autocorrect. It's pretty much hit or miss with that shit. So anyway, I hope y'all like it. Love you guys. I'll try to update soon!

For the starving kittens in Boston... you know what to do. Love you!
