<span style='font-family: "Times,";' georgia,="" serif;"="">Knowing I’m quite close to entering the reservation, I slow down. Running along the houses in full speed won’t be very smart. Not that they’d see me, but the wolves can smell me nonetheless.
I reappear and at a human pace, I make my way to the beach, which is close enough. I can almost smell the salt in the air. During the walk I’m wondering where he wants to talk about. Maybe he wants our friendship to become better which will be difficult – there is so much taking a lot of my time lately and the care of my boys is something I can’t step away from. Not that I want to.
Or does he know what I am? I remember the night he saw me after I hunted. If Jacob knows, he’ll just have to think about it and Edward will go lunatic.
I quicken my step, too curious and a little scared for what he might want to know.
Upon stepping in the sand, I already spot Jake sitting on the tree we’d sat on over a year ago. How time moves so fast is beyond me. I smile and start jogging toward him.
When I’m near, he turns around, probably having heard me in some way.

“Hey Jake!”
He smiles at me and stands up to hug me,” Hey little mind reader!”
I roll my eyes as his warm body lets me go, ”How are you doing?” I ask sitting down on the tree. Jake does the same thing and sighs.
“things can be better, but other than that I’m fine. You? You’ve been busy lately huh? We barely talk.”
Ah, so it is the friendship thing, “Everything is…quite hectic, yes. I don’t even have time to relax.”

“so no nightly walks in the woods then?”
I chuckle and shake my head, ”No, like I said, I barely have time. All things are happening so fast and close to one another. And I have to keep up or I’ll lose control over things. I hate that.”
Jake shrugs,” I know the feeling…not having control over certain things.”

“What’s bothering you Jake? You seem…down,” I ask, feeling a little guilty for not having spoken with him for a long time.
“It’s the imprinting thing. I don’t understand why I still haven’t imprinted with Bella,” he says, his voice sad and frustrated. I’m frowning.
“What’s imprinting actually?”
Jacob grabs a small shell from out of the sand and throws in into the water, ”it’s a wolf thing. Basically it’s like finding your soulmate, but different. it can be everyone – a lover, someone to protect or being a brother to someone…But mostly it’s love.”
I listen carefully, intrigued by the story.
“How does it work? I mean, how do you imprint?” I ask curiously for information about the wolves. They’ve always been kind of interesting, even though I don’t really like them most of the time.

“it can just happen, just by looking into someone’s eyes. And then you feel like everything has shifted in your life. Like gravity brings your centre to someone special. Your entire focus is her. You want to anything and everything to keep her safe, sound and happy,” he explains, looking straight forward over the sea, picturing Bella in his mind and how much he loves her. His feelings are pure and sincere and I can tell he would indeed anything and everything for my sister. it makes me smile,” You’re in love with Bella, so how come you never imprinted? Or maybe you did and you didn’t notice?” I try, maybe able to help him out of his somber thoughts. Unfortunately though, he shakes his head, ”No, you most definitely would feel it shift. It’s a very intense thing.”
“But if you’ve never imprinted how would you know all this? How can you know it’s intense and different?”
Jacob taps his temple and grins wryly, ”I’m a mind reader too remember? when I’m in wolf form, I’m able to hear the whole pack. I’ve seen how it went with Sam, Emily and Leah…”

I frown deeply again, ”Three?”
Jake chuckles softly, ”Look, you know who Leah Clearwater is right?”
I think about that for a minute, ”Yeah…she’d Harry’s daughter I suppose? I never met her though.”
Jacob nods, “Indeed, she and her younger brother Seth recently became like us. it was really weird since normally females don’t become one of the shape shifters.”

I nod slowly, taking in the information.
“Anyway, so Sam and Leah were a couple. They truly loved each other and all that,” he says indicating with his hands as he talks, ”But when Sam became a wolf, he soon enough imprinted with Emily.”
I wince,” that must’ve been awful for Leah…Sam couldn’t stop it?”
Jacob shakes his head sadly, ”No, that’s what I mentioned earlier – you can’t control it. it’s in your genes as they tell you whom you’ll imprint with. Since Leah became a wolf, we can all hear how miserable she feels about it. it’s…sickening sometimes. It makes everyone feel bad, as if the emotions project,” He shudders with his eyes closed.

“I’m afraid I won’t imprint with Bella because it hasn’t happened yet,” he moves on, looking at me,” I don’t want to hurt her like Sam did unintentionally with Leah. I can’t bear it.”
I place my hand on his shoulder as he palms his face with his big hands. Slowly I comfort him in the most friendly way, ”It’ll be fine Jake. I honestly believe that. Bella loves you dearly and she’s changed a lot since she met you. In a good way. And just like it became right for Edward and me, it will work out for you both as well. I’m sure.”
Jacob’s hands fall away and his eyes are wide as he looks at me, ”You and Edward?”
I cringe hitting my head. Shit, I forgot he doesn’t know. Well, he obviously does now…

“Yeah,…Edward and I kind of...mated, which is a vampire thing. Bella just found out about that. “
Jacob pulls a strange face, ”Well, now I understand the foul smell. Now you’re the one hanging out with the bloodsuckers,” he jokes which makes me punch his arm.
“it’ll be fine Jake. Maybe it just needs time? or maybe you’re not ready for imprinting yet, who knows?”
Jake smiles a little, ”You’re probably right, thank you.”
“For what?” I ask, confused.
“For talking to me. But tell me though….if Cullen is your boyfriend, how in the world did he let you get here?”

My face reddens and I look down, ”Eh…well he didn’t. I just went quickly so Alice wouldn’t see me decide. I’ll probably be dead when I get home…” I cringe at the very thought of facing Edward later today.
