Bella excused herself from rest of the family and dragged Jacob 由 the arm to the back of the house. Edward was following them at the heels. “Jake, what are 你 thinking?!” Bella raged, “You can’t imprint on her!” Jacob’s eyebrows furrowed, “What the heck do 你 mean, Bella? What, 你 think I can control this 或者 something? Sorry to disappoint you, but I can’t.” Edward put his arm around Bella, “Calm down, love.” She shook her head at him in disbelief, “Calm down? Summer’s situation was bad enough already! Now she has a ton 更多 to deal with!” Jacob narrowed his eyes at Bella, “What situation?” he 说 through his teeth, “Is someone threatening her?” He clenched his fists. Bella rolled her eyes; he’d only imprinted on Summer two 分钟 以前 and he was already becoming overprotective. Edward glared at Jacob, “Summer is part of the Volturi, Jacob, but she follows Carlisle’s way of feeding. She is married to one of the elders, Aro. She had the child, Chloe, with him three years ago, but he was manipulating his position over Chloe’s life, subjecting her to remain with the Volturi without choice. Summer left Volterra three years 以前 because of Aro, and she has been running from him since.” Jacob’s fury abruptly changed to sorrow, “She’s…she’s married?” He stared down at his feet mutely. Bella’s 心 pitied Jacob. It wouldn’t be easy for him to stay away from Summer, though he would need to for his and Summer’s protection. Jake, on the other hand, wasn’t upset about Aro. Instead, he was determined to win over Summer’s 心 for himself, despite possible dangers. He glanced eye to eye at Edward and Bella, “Does she 爱情 him?” “Yes, she does, Jacob.” Edward muttered. Bella reached for Jacob’s hand, “Jake, romance can’t blossom between 你 and Summer. Aro is her mate, like it 或者 not. I know this isn’t easy for you, but if anything romantic pops up between 你 and her, Aro will have both of 你 killed.” Jacob sneered, “He’d kill his own wife? Some husband he is.” Bella squeezed his hand, “Jake, look at me,” she looked desperately into his sparkling eyes, “this is bound to be some mistake. There’s obvious another—“ Jacob pulled away, “A mistake?! These things don’t happen 由 accident, Bella. She’s obviously been lying to 你 all because 你 so strongly believe in your ‘vampire mating’ nonsense. She belongs with me, not that poor excuse of a gentleman, and if Summer wants me instead, you’d better believe I’ll be 由 her side until death.” “Fine,” Edward shrugged, “if 你 want to get her killed, go ahead, though Carlisle will probably object.” “Does she know?” Jacob questioned. Bella cocked her head to the side, “Know what?” He sighed, “Know what imprinting is and that it just happened to her.” Edward eyed him, “No, but she may know now. She has the ability to read minds, among other things, 由 using a shield, so she might have done that already.” Jacob smiled proudly, “Wow, she’s gorgeous and proficient, exactly my kind of girl.” He belted out a laugh and walked back into the house. Bella rested her head on Edward’s chest. He rocked her back and forth gently, “We won’t let anything happen to Summer 或者 Jacob, Bella. Mark my word on it.” She remained silent. She knew Jake better than anyone else in the world, and she knew how stubborn he was. The only good thing in this situation was the fact that Jake finally loved her as a friend and nothing more. But he’s head over heels for Summer, and he’d make it sure it stayed that way for him alone.
There was chaos going on in everyone’s mind, except Summer’s. From what she gathered through other people’s thoughts, Jacob instinctively fell for her, like 爱情 at first sight. She was, however, fairly alarmed that he imprinted on her, considering she really belonged to Aro. Chloe was too contented to notice what just happened between Jacob and her mother, which greatly relieved Summer. She didn’t think it best to mix a three 年 old into a 爱情 三角形, 三角 so early in life. Alice was secretly searching the future, frustrated that she couldn’t see what would happen between Summer and Jacob. Not being able to see shape-shifting 狼人 annoyed her to the extremes. Thankfully, Jasper willingly listened to her complaints so she could let off her steam and concentrate. She tried her best to manipulate her power, but there was no foreseeable way to see visions with 狼人 in them. Alice growled, which wasn’t very typical of her. Jasper pulled her into a gentle embrace, “Come now, love, she’ll be okay. As her adoptive family, we have a right and reason to protect her, and Carlisle will see to it that she’s safe.” She hid her face in Jasper’s chest, “I hope so…” Jacob walked into the room and leaned against the wall. He was happy that his brothers were busy. Carlisle was talking with Sam about things in general, including Jacob imprinting on Summer and whether it could be undone 或者 not. Quil, as usual, was chatting about sports with a guy who truly cared; in this case, it was Emmett. Rosalie, Esme, and Summer were cooing over lovable, smiling Chloe, but Jacob only focused on Summer. Although she wasn’t facing him, something about her grabbed his 心 violently.
Not one thing was out of place in her; even her laugh, let alone her voice, was enough to knock him unconscious. Everyone seemed so preoccupied, causing Jacob wonder if he could have a moment alone with Summer. Well hey, why not? Her grip on him was too strong to ignore at the moment. He walked behind the 长椅, 沙发 Summer was sitting on, his 心 racing at the speed of light, “Shoot, now? Can’t this thing shut up for a minute?” It embarrassed him to know she could hear his 心 pounding, but to Summer, it was cute. He cleared his throat quietly and hung his arms over back of the chair, trying his best to look relaxed. “Hey, Summer.” Summer’s luminous golden eyes met Jacob’s, igniting a spark within him. “Hi, Jake.” Her harmonious soprano voice pierced his 心 like an arrow. He kept telling himself he needed to focus, “I was wondering whether you’d like to take a walk with me, get to know each other a little better.” Everyone was about to reject the idea, but Summer nodded enthusiastically, “I would 爱情 to!” Her eagerness made Jacob beam all the more, “Great! Let’s get going then, shall we?” He held out his large, temperate hand to her, “You can bring the little sweetheart sitting in your lap if 你 want.”Chloe laughed hysterically when he tickled her. Chloe’s acceptance of Jacob meant a lot to him. “Actually, I think she wants to stay here with Rosalie and Esme. She’s a bit worn out.” “That’s fine.” Rosalie snickered at Jacob as she took Chloe from Summer, “You had best watch yourself, dog, 或者 else you’re going to have quite a few 吸血鬼 to answer to, counting my family and I.” “Do I look like I want to hurt her?” Rosalie ignored him. Summer tenderly took his hand in hers and the couple headed out the front door. Jacob led her southward through the hushed forest. Astonishing to him, Summer didn’t care to let go of his hand. He was the first to kindle the conversation, “So, I’m guessing here, but I take it 你 know what werewolf imprinting is?” She chuckled, “You know me so well already? I’m impressed.” He smiled down at her lovingly, “Well, Bella kinda blew up at me earlier for it, although I have no control over my imprinting. It’s all inborn.” Summer looked at him sympathetically, “Jake, don’t worry about me disapproving. I understand that 你 have no control over who 你 imprint on. But I must admit that the situation is all so…unnatural.” “Ha, you’ve got that right, sweetheart.” He glanced down at petite Summer to see if she disliked him calling her little nicknames like that. Her perfect disposition remained blissful and jovial, something that also shocked Jacob. “I hear you’re married to one of the Volturi’s elders. How’s that working out for you?” Summer became hesitant. What was she supposed to say? She didn’t 爱情 Aro? That would be a lie, and she didn’t want to abuse Jake’s sudden trust. He noticed she was uncomfortable, “We don’t have to talk about that topic if 你 don’t want to, honey.” She looked up at him with wide eyes, “Oh no, I’m fine,” she tried to laugh, “I’m just thinking of an appropriate answer.” Jacob’s 心 sighed, ready to weep, “You still 爱情 him?” “Well, um, I think I do.” Jake stopped walking. Summer turned to face him, concerned, “Jake, 你 okay?” His expression was undoubtedly pained, “Summer, I think you’re lying to yourself way too much.”
Her eyebrows creased, “How?” He stared at her straight in the eyes, “He’s hurt 你 and your daughter, and you’re quite convinced that when 你 meet him again, he’ll kill you. If he honestly loved you, Summer, he would do anything to get 你 back, firstly 由 changing his ways, but apparently he hasn’t. 你 want him to respect your daughter, as well as others, but he doesn’t and frankly he may never reach that point. 你 deserve someone who will listen to you, respect your wishes without argument, 爱情 你 and Chloe with all he has in him, and honor 你 as the 皇后乐队 of his life.” Summer’s jaw hung open. Did Jake seriously say all of that to her? This imprinting thing was much 更多 powerful than she suspected. Jake’s words made her think, though, about whether Aro was actually in possession of her heart, 或者 was he playing tricks with her mind. She gasped aloud; maybe Aro married her only to keep her linked to the Volturi. He was in 爱情 with her abilities, not her true self. She didn’t want to jump to conclusions, but it certainly seemed probable. Jacob ran his fingers down her cheek. She was adorable, especially when she blushed like that. He brushed back her curls and lifted her chin to face him, “No matter if 你 choose him over me 或者 not, I’ll always find a way to be 由 your side wherever 你 are. You’ll always captivate my heart, and I’ll forever be your protector, Summer. He and no one else will be able to hurt 你 unless they kill me first.” His words were firm, ardent, and virtually unbreakable. A warm tear flowed down her beautiful face. Jacob moved closer towards her, wiping away the tear with his thumb. “You know, 天使 aren’t supposed to cry.” She gave a slight laugh. He didn’t, 更多 like couldn’t, take his eyes off Summer, his love. “Come here, you.” He pulled her into an embrace 由 her small waist. She rested her head on his warm, strong chest. He was so inviting, and she was having a hard time resisting him. Jake was very contented; it felt so right to be holding Summer closely and tightly. Summer’s eyes met with Jake’s again, but this time, with much 更多 passion. Jake gave up trying to withhold what he wanted to do the most. Slowly, he bent his head and neared Summer’s face. She stood onto her tip-toes and finally, their lips intertwined. Prince Charming met his Cinderella, and the world turned upside down as their hearts interlocked for eternity in that precious moment. Time stood still for the couple. Summer ran her fingers down Jake’s back. His hands 魔发奇缘 in her shimmering hair. His lips traced across her jaw and lips. They didn’t stop, it was utterly impossible. But she had to wonder, what would Aro think of this when he read her thoughts? She and Jake would surely be killed now.
