Chapter 7


I raised my arms up and stretched as a yawn escaped my dry mouth.

"Did you have a nice nap, my love?" Edward asked gently near my ear before giving it a gentle kiss.

I shivered from the light graze of his cold lips and smiled up at him while nodding my head. I placed my head on his chest and traced a random pattern on his shirt. I was happy that a dream didn't occur during my nap. Sleep talking was something I hated, especially near Edward. He would always ask me about my dream, sometimes it wasn't something I would like to share.

The silence was comfortable. Edward was paying with my hair, he knew that always relaxed me. I sighed happily and snuggled closer to him. I felt him tense up and I frowned. He stopped playing with my hair.

"Bella?" He asked, getting my attention.

I looked up at him and stroked his cheek, trying to get him to relax. I had a feeling what he was about to say wasn't good.

"Where were you going with…Jacob that caused you to forget about me and our plans?"

My heart sunk. Edward was too calm, which told me he was angry.

"We were going to the beach. I'm so sorry Edward it just escaped my mind." I replied with guilt.

I grabbed his hand and squeezed it, trying to coax him to forgive me. I reached to kiss his cheek but he pulled away. I felt really hurt that he would refuse me.

"I want you to stay away from him Bella. Do you understand how much it pains me to enter your room and smell him all over, especially on your bed and on you?" He snarled out.

I casted my eyes down and played with my fingers. I don't like hurting Edward, or anyone, but Jacob is someone who I just can't cancel out my life. It's rare for Edward to use such a tone with me. I would much rather hear his extra calm voice than this. I looked up at him and his face was turned away from me, but I could feel his pain and anger. I wanted to cry, this was not how I expected our day to turn out. I quickly got off the bed and headed for the bathroom. I would hate for him to see me cry and feel sorry for me, after all it's my fault.

Suddenly I felt something grab my arm. I knew it was Edward but his speed scares me sometimes. I kept my eyes low so he wouldn't see the tears that threatened to fall.

"Bella, look at me please." Edward begged as he tried to lift my chin up but I refused. I knew if I looked at him my tears would escape and my attempt at keeping them inside would fail entirely.

"I'm so sorry Edward It was never my plan to hurt you. Jake just came and I... I guess it just escaped my mind but I promise it won't happen again and I will make-"

I gasped as he pressed his lips to mine, I was shocked and definitely not expecting it. I closed my eyes and relaxed into the kiss. I was surround by his wonderful aroma. I moaned softly and pressed myself against him. I wanted more but knowing Edward I knew the moment wouldn't last long. I deepened the kiss and was surprised that he allowed it. His hands griped my thighs and pushed me up to his midsection. I wrapped my legs around him, afraid I would fall if I didn't. Something was wrong with Edward, never has he been so bold with me. I was enjoying it but I knew something was up. He backed up and lowered us to the bed. I moaned deeply as his body molded into mine. I ran my hands up his chest and tightened my legs around him. He growled and broke the kiss. It was then I realized how much air I needed. I slowly opened my eyes and looked at Edward. He looked at me with guarded eyes, it was hard to tell what he was feeling. Did he not feel the pleasure I did? He tried getting up but I tightened my legs around him. If he really wanted to he would have no problem getting loose but he took the hint and stayed still.

"Edward what was that?" I asked, still trying to recover from his assault.

"You were rambling and I wanted you to stop." He said with a smirk.

I laughed and shook my head. He sniffed around my body and I froze. What the hell? I blushed deeply thinking that I smelt bad.

"This is what I want to smell whenever I see you. I want to smell us entangled, not some filthy dog."

I was angry but I tried not to let it show, Jacob was not some filthy dog. I unwrapped my legs from him and forced a smile, I didn't want another fight.

"Are you hungry?" He asked kissing up my neck. I shivered from the chill, not from pleasure. I was not in the mood for anymore kissing.

"Yeah I'm starving, let's get dressed and go down to the lunch room."


I growled a warning at Seth for wasting my time. My patrol was over and yet he kept trying to stall me with pointless questions and dragged on conversations. It's obvious he was trying hard to hide something because he made sure to keep his mind occupied with thousands of questions for me to answer. At first I didn't mind his questions, even though most of them I didn't know the answer too. I thought the childish act would stop but to my surprise, he kept it coming.

"What's the matter with you, huh?" I asked though our mind link.

He caught up to me and nudged my shoulder. I didn't spare him a glance. I loved Seth but he's acting fishy and I desperately wanted to know why. I tried my hardest not to lash my building anger out on him. Seth's gentle heart would not take it well.

"Nothing is wrong Jake. Slowdown will ya?" Seth pleaded.

"Our patrol is over, why do you keep trying to stop me? I'm starving and I need rest." I growled out.

I made a quick turn and tackled him. I made sure not to cause him any pain. He whimpered beneath me and tried to get loose but I kept my grip firm.

"I'm not dumb, tell me what's going on," I demanded

"Paul and Embry said to keep you out as long as possible! I don't know why, I swear," He said.

I looked deep into his eyes and searched his mind. Our staring contest lasted for a while before he submitted and looked away. I was happy he told the truth but what worried me is what they were planning. I licked his face in apology and quickly got off him.

"I don't know what they're planning but I'm sure it's not anything bad." He said, trying to comfort me.

I grunted in reply and braced myself for the worst. Paul in the mix? Most likely something would turn out wrong.

I wasted no more time in getting home, only stopping to phase and slip on a pair of shorts and flip flops. Seth was accompanying me because he was anxious to figure out what was going on.

"Do you hear that?" Seth asked with a raised brow.

I paused and tried to figure out what it was. It was a few seconds before high pitched giggles reached my ears. I threw Seth a "What the fuck?" look and slowly made my way towards my garage where the sound came from. Besides a few of my pack brothers, the rest of the scents were unfamiliar and heavily clouded with perfume.

"Paul, you better not have turned my garage into your little play area." I growled out as I approached them.

I wasn't surprised at what I saw, but why in my house? I went up to Embry and smacked the back of his head.

"Paul what is this?" I asked.

I grabbed the bag and chips from his lap and ignored his growls.

"Girls, these are my brothers Jake and Seth," Paul introduced.

I nodded my head politely but there eyes were glued to my chest. I rolled my eyes and smirked. I decided to tease them a little with a little flex of my chest muscles. The two girls snapped their heads up. They looked like sisters. The one which I assumed was oldest had a weird smile on her face. I wasn't sure if she was trying to be sexy or what. The younger girl was shyer and had a blush on her face. She waved at me and I nodded my head.

"They were looking for some fun so I invited them over. You down?" Paul asked.

I glared at him and shook my head.

"Nah I'm pretty tiered, maybe Seth can join you guys."

Seth looked down and rubbed the back of his head.

"Oh come on Jake. Your little Bella is out having fun so why can't you?" Paul asked.

I threw the bag of chips at him and glared. So what if she was out having fun, what does that have to do with me? My mood turned sour when I realized who exactly she was having fun with.

The oldest grabbed my hand and pulled me down to sit next to her.

"I can show you a good time," She whispered in my ear.

The alcohol on her breath was faint but noticeable. I wasn't interested in having their version of a fun. I moved her wandering hand from my leg and turned my face before her red painted lips could touch it. I looked around for Seth for help but he had his own problem. The girl who I mistaken as shy was sitting on his lap and having her own fun. Poor Seth looked uncomfortable as hell. He caught my eye and I shrugged, I had my own situation.

"What's wrong?" She asked.

Everything was wrong. I didn't even know her name yet she was begging for a quick hit.

"Loosen up man, what are you so afraid of? Look at little Seth." Paul said.

I turned my head and grinned. Seth was rubbing her shoulders and looking like he wanted to be anywhere but here. Oh what the hell? What was stopping me? I knew the answer but I didn't want to admit it. The persistent girl made another move towards me. That time I didn't stop her.
