16. Secrets

I felt the heat radiating from Jake's body on mine as I woke up, he still had his arms around me. A smile came to my face as I remebered last night. I snuggled closer to him. I reached up and kissed his cheek as he opened his eyes, those beautiful brown eyes.

"Good morning, sunshine," I said smiling.

"Good morning," he said with a cheeky grin.

I reached up to kiss him, he held my head forward. I put my hand at the back of his hair, then there was a knock at the door.

"Nessie?" Alice shouted.

I jumped up straight away, I couldn't let her see me like this or Jacob for that matter. I wrapped the sheet around my naked body, before hurrying to get my pyjamas on but they were ripped. I found other pyjamas and stuck them on, struggling.

"Just a minute," I said getting my bottoms on.

I threw Jake's top over to him.

"Quick put it on," I whispered.

He put the top on and I went over to the bedroom door and opened it.

"Hey sorry if I woke you, but I really need to borrow some hair straighteners," Alice said looking around the room.

"Oh, ok there in the bathroom ,beside the mirror," I said.

Alice went into the bathroom and walked back out with my straighteners in her hands.

"Thanks, I promise I'll bring them back when I'm done. It's just that Emmett thought it would be so funny to hide them from me, but beauty cannot wait that long." Alice said fuming, whilst Jake chuckled.

"Yeah, sure take all the time you need," I said reassuring her.

"Ok, see you guys later." Alice said closing the door behind her.

I went over to make sure she was gone, she was. I slid down onto the floor.

"Phew," I said with relief flying threw me.

Jake started laughing and I joined in, even though we almost got caught it was pretty funny.

"Uh oh, no......... wait a minute," I said realizing.

"What?" Jake asked.

"You can't think of last night, at all, when dad is around. I mean I can stop him from reading my thoughts but you can't," I said panicking.

"Well I don't know I might occasionally...............slip," he said.

"No, you can't slip just think of anything but me, ok?" I said.

"Fine," he said looking at the floor.

"Good, well now I'm actually going to get changed," I said smiling at him.

"Yeah, me too," Jake said, getting up from the bed.

We didn't need to get changed in separate rooms now, there was nothing to be embarrassed about. When we were ready, Jacob took my hand as we headed downstairs. When we were at the bottom of the staircase, I could see Emmett looking at us suspiciously but I just ignored him. Alice came marching into the room.

"Emmett I used Nessie's straighteners but you have had your fun now so you better give me my straighteners back!" Alice screamed.

"Well my fun isn't over just yet, I think I could do this for at least a couple of more days," Emmett said grinning.

"He hid them under the seat of his car," dad announced coming into the living room.

"Thanks Edward!" Alice said as she was running out the door to the garage.

Emmett snarled at my dad who was smiling.

"What did you go and tell her that for!" Emmett shouted.

"Two reasons. One is that she would have been squealing all day long and taking the house apart, two, I just love to see the look on your face when you have been beaten." Dad smirked.

Mum laughed and came over to me and Jake.

"Hey sweetie, did you have a good sleep?" She asked wondering.

"Um.... yeah I had a really good sleep," I said smiling at Jake, then the floor.

"That's good to hear," mum said.

"Jacob your breakfast is ready," grandma shouted softly.

"Oh good, I'm starving," Jake said kissing my cheek before going into the kitchen.

I walked over and sat down next to Emmett on the couch. I caught him out of the corner of my eye, he was watching me.

"What?" I asked.

"Oh nothing, I just think you and I need to have a little chat," he said grinning.

"About?" I asked confused.

Alice came in dancing and singing, "I got my straighteners back, I got my straighteners back" she kissed dad on the cheek and stuck her tongue out at Emmett, then went dancing outside to Jasper, I assumed.

"Just follow me," Emmett said smirking.

He got up and went outside, I followed him wondering were this was going, whatever it was I figured I wouldn't like it. Emmett was in the garage leaning on his car, I walked over to him.

"Nessie, is there something you want to tell your uncle Emmett?" He asked nodding.

I looked side to side, "no, not at all," I said smiling not liking were this was going.

"Are you sure??" He asked again.

"Positive," I said in a happy voice.

"Nessie, I know about last night," he said in a soft tone.

I looked confused and shaking my head as if I didn't know what he was talking about.

"Come on Nessie, you know what I'm talking about," he said grinning.

"But, how could you possibly know?" I asked curiously.

"Are you serious, how could I have not known? The sexual tension coming from you both was unbelievable," he said raising his eyebrows.

"Please don't tell dad. He'll kill me, probably Jake first, but he will get around to it," I said begging.

"Don't worry kiddo, secrets safe with me," he said promising.

"What's in it for you?" I asked suspiciously.

"Other than seeing the look on Edwards face, nothing," he said laughing.

"Thank you," I said hugging him.

"You can't think of it either, or tell anybody else, not even Rosalie," I told him.

"I won't, but you do know he'll find out sooner or later," he said.

"Yeah, I prefer later," I said smiling.

"Ok then," he said laughing.

We walked back into the house.

"We're have you two been?" Dad asked wondering.

"Just running, I so beat Emmett," I said smirking.

"Yeah she really did," Emmett said playing along by putting on a sour face.

"Good girl," dad said smiling at me.

"Dad, where's Jake?" I asked.

"Oh, he's just went to see how Billy is, he won't be long," dad said.

"Oh, ok," I said.

I went to the kitchen where mum and Alice were sitting down at the table, I joined them.

"Hey, what are you both doing?" I asked bored.

"Nothing I'm just trying to help Alice figure out a way to get Emmett back," Mum said smiling.

"Oh," I said.

"Yeah, nobody hides my stuff without getting away with it," Alice fumed.

"Right, well I'm just going to go play my piano," I said getting up out of my seat.

I walked out of the kitchen and into the dining room were my piano was. I sat down and played it for a while, After that I thought I should tell Emmett about what Alice was planning. I didn't want to but he was keeping my secret so I had to tell him. I walked over to him and touched his cheek. When I let him know I took my hand away.

"Thanks," he said.

"Yeah, well I just thought you should know," I said looking at the floor.

I got up and walked upstairs to my room, it was a bit messy looking so I cleaned it, I was tidying the bathroom when I felt someone put there arms around me. It was Jake.

"Hey," he said kissing me.

I pulled away.

"Emmett knows," I said.

"What, how?" He asked shocked.

"He said he could sense the sexual tension coming from us," I said looking down.

"But its ok. He promised he wouldn't tell anyone, especially dad," I said reassuring him.

"Why would he not tell anyone?" Jake asked confused.

"Well he said that dad wouldn't be happy but his face would be priceless when he does find out," I explained.

"Yeah it will, when he kills me!" Jake said.

"I won't let him, I promise," I said.

"He needs to know, Nessie," Jake said.

"Well I won't be telling him, no way," I said.

"Me neither," Jacob said raising his eyebrows.

"Then I guess he will just find out when he is meant to find out," I said.

"Ok," he agreed.

I reached up to kiss him then got changed into my pyjamas, It was getting late so we went to bed. Jake held me in his arms again, I was so comfortable and it felt just right. I felt the warmth of his breath on me and soon fell asleep.
