Title: Unholy Alliances
Sequel to: Read: Meteor Shower
Pairings: Edward/Jacob
Fandom: Smallville/Twilight
Rating: T
Disclaimer: Don't own anything mentioned
Summary: Jacob's a metahuman, and a completely oblivious one at that---at least when it comes to the fact that he's in love with his vampiric best friend Edward Cullen---or the fact that Edward is in love with him too. When Jacob's cousin Lana is sent to live with him after the disaster the meteor shower left in Smallville, she and the others try to get him to realize Ed's feelings for him, or die trying.


“Okay, so Lana’s idea is to use jealousy against the boys.” Alice announced the night before, smiling brightly. “First we have to decide who we want jealous, Jake or Ed. Who would be more likely to snap and do something?”

“Edward.” The answer was quick and unanimous.

“Exactly.” Alice nodded as if she’d asked a dumb question to begin with. “So this means we need to find someone to use to get Edward jealous.”

“What about Tyler Crowley?” Lana asked. “I mean, he’s already making Edward jealous.”

“No, that won’t work.” Alice shook his head. “That guy is only doing that because he wants Edward and can’t have him, and Edward knows that, so while Tyler hanging all on Jacob does bother Edward it isn’t enough.”

“Who else could we use?” Billy wanted to know, before blinking. “What about Bella?”

Alice shook her head. “She might really fall in love with Jacob, and we don’t want to hurt her.”

“But maybe we could explain the situation to her?” Emmett asked.

“No.” Alice shook her head. “Bella won’t do. We need someone else. Bella’s no competition for Edward.”

“Who could be competition for Edward?” Esme asked, truly confused.

Alice’s eyes suddenly went blank, as if for a moment she wasn’t there with them anymore.

Lana’s eyes narrowed as she noticed how everyone tensed and sent looks at her, as if worried that she was seeing this.

That did it.

What were the Cullens hiding?

And then Alice was grinning. “Okay, we don’t have to worry about that, Jake’s going to give us the perfect candidate all on his own. All we have to do now is to use it to our advantage and make Edward as insecure and jealous as possible.”

Lana frowned.

How did Alice know that Jacob would have someone like him who was worthy competition for Edward?

But she didn’t voice her questions, remembering how it was one of the things that’d ruined her relationship and friendship with Clark in the first place---begging for the truth and accusing him of secrets.

This time she was going to be silent and get all the facts before speaking up.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jacob skipped school the next day.

He knew it was wrong, he knew that he was going to be in a lot of trouble with both his family and Edward when he returned, but he didn’t really care. He’d gotten up at the crack of dawn to find that he was floating above his bed---and came crashing down as soon as he realized it.

There were more important things than school.

Thank God Edward had already left to go to his place and change before school. Jacob didn’t want questions, he needed answers. When he had the answers he’d tell Edward, until then he---he needed to do research.

He drove on his motorcycle to Port Angeles and found the first Internet Café he could and went inside, goggling ‘meteor freak’ and ‘Smallville’, and came upon something called the Web Of Weird by Chloe Sullivan.

He recognized the name.

It was Lana’s friend, the blonde one with the wicked sense of humor.

Jacob read the articles published in the Torch, (Lana’s old school’s newspaper) and he felt his heart sink when he read about all of the meteor freaks Chloe had investigated. All of them had either gone insane and been sent to some institution called Belle Reeve because they’d tried killing everyone, or they’d been killed as people tried to stop them from killing people.

Meteor freaks are monsters…murderers.

Jacob’s heart skipped a beat as he leaned back in horror.

Was this what he was going to go through as well?

Was he suddenly going to wake up insane and then try to kill all those he loved?

No. NO! I can’t!

Looking through the contact information, Jacob found an email address and quickly clicked on it. He began composing a letter to Chloe letting her know who he was and what was happening to him and asking her for her help. He didn’t want to be evil, he didn’t want to hurt anyone.

He needed help.

Pressing ‘Send’, Jacob took in a deep breath and continued to read Chloe’s stories, realizing that Clark Kent, the guy Lana had had that short relationship with, was featured in a lot of them.

He wondered if this was a coincidence.

Jacob was surprised when his Messenger said that Chloe_Sullivan was asking to be his friend, and he approved of it, watching in surprise as a window came up and Chloe began to type to him. Apparently she’d been checking her email at school and had found his email.

CS says:

Hey Jacob, I read your letter. Please, try calm down.

JB says:

I’m sorry for bothering you, but I found myself floating above my bed this morning, and last night I went through an emotional moment and everything in the restaurant I was in just floated before crashing down. I don’t want to hurt anyone. I don’t want to!

CS says:

Just because you’re a meteor freak doesn’t mean you’re going to be evil and kill anyone, Jacob.

JB says:

According to all your files I will!

CS says:

^sighs^ The reason why I stopped writing those pieces was because I found out that there are actually meteor freaks who are not evil out there and I was only damaging them by writing all those things about them. Look, the powers the meteors give you try to take control, and the power is seductive. But you already are proving that you aren’t going to use them against anyone. You only manifested last night and you’re searching for help. All the meteor freaks I’ve written about never looked for help and they used their powers for their own advancement.

JB says:

What can I do?

CS says:

Is there anywhere close by that you can go to where there’s total solitude? Where we can meet and talk in person?

Jacob paused, surprised.

JB says:

You’re in Washington?

CS says:

No, but I have my ways. So. Do you know of any place?

Jacob took in a deep breath, hesitating, before typing.

JB says:

Yes.

He typed out the directions to the hidden meadow in the forest behind his home, the place only he and Edward knew about, and wondered why he felt like he was betraying his best friend by doing so.

CS says:

How long till you can get there?

JB says:

Half hour.

CS says:

We’ll see you there.

And then she logged off.

She’ll see me there? And who is she coming with?

Shaking his head, wondering if he’d done the right thing, Jacob got up and went to the counter, paying for the time he’d used the computer.

He needed to get back to Forks immediately.

No time for regrets or second thoughts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“What do you mean he wasn’t home when you woke up?” Edward asked Lana with a dark frown.

He’d gone up to them the moment the truck had driven into the parking lot, and his mood had gone sour the moment he realized that the only two people getting out of the vehicle were Lana and Bella.

“I mean that he wasn’t home when I woke up.” Lana replied, not at all intimidated. “Billy and I didn’t hear him leave, but his motorcycle wasn’t below so he must have had somewhere he had to go and forgot to tell us. I picked up Bella.”

Edward didn’t care about any detail that didn’t have Jacob in it. “He couldn’t have something he had to do, he didn’t say anything to me about it last night.”

“And he usually tells you everything?” Bella asked.

“Yes. And I tell him everything too.” Edward nodded absentmindedly. “He wouldn’t have left me out on purpose.”

“Maybe he forgot to tell you.” Lana offered.

“Or it came up last minute.” Bella nodded.

It wasn’t helping Edward calm down.

Nothing good ever happened last minute.

And he doubted that Jacob had forgotten to tell him anything. Anyway, he would have been able to read the plans in Jacob’s thoughts had it been otherwise, even if it was slowly getting more and more difficult to get a clear reading on those thoughts the last two weeks.

Lana suddenly grinned. “Maybe he got a call and decided to go meet someone. Someone important. Someone he’d get up early to see.”

Edward frowned, not liking the sound of that. “Like a girl?”

“Maybe.” Lana paused, looking pensive. “That’s actually a good question. What if it’s a guy? I got the impression it might be a guy.”

Edward’s eyes narrowed as he glared at the tiny brunette. “What impression? Has Jacob said anything to you about a guy?”

Suddenly Lana’s eyes widened and she shook her head. “No.”

But her voice was squeaking, and she was definitely nervous now.

And even though he couldn’t read her thoughts Edward knew she had to be hiding something from him.

Jacob had talked to Lana about some guy, or about someone, and she’d gotten the impression that it was a guy.

guy Jacob had gotten up at an ungodly hour to meet.

And Jacob hated mornings.

So that meant that this guy was important to Jacob.

Edward clenched his fists, not noticing that his eyes had gone from gold to black in seconds, or the fact that Lana had noticed, her eyes widening. “I’m going to look for him.” He turned his back on the girls and walked away, telling himself to calm down, that this wasn’t what it was looking like.

Plus, if it was a guy he didn’t have anything to worry about.

Jacob wasn’t gay, or bisexual

…was he?

Edward froze, eyes widening.

What if the reason why Jacob was so intent on talking about relationships lately was because he had someone he was interested in and he’d been trying to work up to the courage so he could tell Edward?

Edward felt dizzy.

And murderous.

His eyes narrowed.

He wasn’t going to allow this.

He couldn’t.

With that he stalked to his shiny silver Volvo, determined.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clark looked around the little meadow and thought it looked nice. It was peaceful, something he’d been missing since he’d had to move to the hustle and bustle of Metropolis. Chloe was enjoying the change, but Clark? Clark liked the countryside much better than the city life.

He was nervous about this meeting but understood why Chloe and he needed to be here.

Ever since Chloe had figured out his secret he’d had a burden lifted from his shoulders, so he knew how important it was for someone to be able to confide in someone who understood and supported you. Plus, he knew Jacob, and while they hadn’t really had long conversations or anything he knew that the kid was a good one.

Kid. Right. He’s your same age.

Plus, he was Lana’s cousin, and while Clark had realized that he and Lana were never going to be anything, he would always have a special place in his heart for the pretty brunette, and would do all he could to help Jacob for her.

Chloe’s phone rang and she looked down at the screen, smiling. “It’s Scott.”

Clark grinned teasingly at his best friend.

They’d made friends with a young man a couple of grades above theirs named Scott Summers, and Chloe and the forever shades-wearing guy were completely into each other.

“Probably wondering why I’m not on campus.” Chloe smiled brighter biting on her bottom lip to stifle a giggle before answering it. “Hey Scott. No, I’m fine. Clark and I had to leave. Meteor business.”

Scott was a mutant, the reason why he was constantly having headaches and had to wear shades was because he shot laser beams out of his eyes. Clark and Chloe had found out his secret soon after Scott started flirting with Chloe, and instead of her being freaked out as the older boy had obviously thought she would be, Chloe had thought it hot.

Pun intended.

“Yeah, I’ll call you and let you know how it goes when it’s over.” Chloe was smiling silly and blushing. “I’m fine. Clark is with me so if he goes rogue I’ll be okay.” She sighed happily. “Okay, see you then.”

Clark bit his tongue to keep from laughing at Chloe.

“Shut up.” She grumbled, knowing this.

Clark laughed.

And then he went stiff as he heard Jacob coming. “He’s here.”

Chloe went business-mode immediately and they both turned as the bushes parted and Jacob Black emerged, looking shocked that they were here.

“How did you guys make it here before me?” Jacob asked as he came closer towards them, a little wary.

“We have our ways.” Chloe smiled, going to Jacob and shaking his hand. “It’s nice to see you again Jacob, you remember Clark, right?”

“Yeah.” Jacob nodded, shaking Clark’s hand as well, cautiously. “So, what do we do now?”

“Does anyone know about this?” Chloe asked before clarifying. “Your meteor power? Our meeting?”

Jacob shook his head.

“Good, it’s better to keep both secret.” The blonde smiled. “Well, you said you could make things float, right? Is it TK or the manipulations of the molecules in things, or manipulating air?”

Jacob blinked. “Uh. I don’t know?”

Chloe tilted her head to the right. “Well, why don’t you show us and we’ll try figure out what exactly your meteor power is?”

Jacob hesitated for a moment before nodding. He looked around them before going to a rock. Taking in a deep breath he pointed his hands to the rock and---nothing happened.

Chloe watched on curiously.

Jacob blinked and did it again.

Nothing happened.

Clark felt a little sorry for the boy as a blush of embarrassment colored his cheeks.

This was actually quite common when a power first manifested itself---the inability to control it. Clark knew that well himself.

Jacob tried again.

Nothing.

“Stupid rock!” Jacob growled, throwing his hands down in fury…

…and then he shot up into the air as if propelled by a thousand rockets.

His scream was heard throughout the mountain.

Clark’s eyes widened in shock.

“Clark! Do something!” Chloe screamed.

Clark was already on it.

Watching as Jacob stopped shooting upwards and started falling he took a great leap, grabbed the boy in his arms, and then they landed down with a crash that made the whole mountain tremble and dust fly, and birds fly from their perches on the trees.

And when the dust settled Clark was standing in a little hole, holding Jacob bridal-style, Jacob’s arms around his neck, looking up at him in shock and trembling slightly from fear.

“Are you okay?” Chloe rushed to them.

“Y-yes?” Jacob squeaked, eyes on Clark. “You’re a meteor freak too?”

Clark thought for a moment before nodding. “Something like that.”

Oh.” Jacob squeaked again, not moving, looking like he was about to faint. “Thank you.”

Clark chuckled. “No problem.”

“Well, if it makes you feel any better, I think I know what your power is.” Chloe announced, drawing their attention back to her. “You don’t have telekinesis. You control the air around things, and around yourself, enabling you to do a lot of stuff, like lift heavy things into the air---like lifting yourself into the air.” She grinned. “I think, with enough practice, you might even be able to fly.”

Jacob’s eyes widened. “Fly?”

“I know, cool right?” Chloe was bubbling, and then her watch beeped. “We have to get back, but we’ll be here tonight if you’re free.”

“I’m free.” Jacob nodded.

“Good.” She smiled. “I might brings my, uh, a friend a long. He’s a mutant as well, so he’ll help.”

“Great.” Jacob smiled shakily.

Chloe suddenly grinned. “Clark, you can let go of him now.”

Clark smirked. “I don’t know, he’s still trembling.”

Jacob made a face. “Stop laughing at me. I just jettisoned into the air like a rocket, I have a reason for my legs becoming jelly.”

“He’s right.” Clark responded.

Chloe just giggled.

Jacob sighed and motioned for Clark to put him down, and even though he swayed a little his legs were now strong enough to keep him standing upright. “See you guys around 8?”

“Perfect timing.” Chloe agreed. “See you!”

Clark nodded to Jacob, grabbed Chloe, and then superspeeded away.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They had just disappeared into thin air.

Shaking his head, Jacob turned and began his shaky walk down the unmarked path he knew through the mountain down to his house at the base. By the time he’d gotten down there he was so deep in his thoughts. He relieved the moment of soaring through the air, and while it was terrifying at the moment (he was almost sure he screamed like a little girl) there was also a rush of pleasure that had his cheeks blushing.

“Where were you?”

Jacob stumbled, looking up, surprised to see Edward there glaring at him, sanding by his car. “Ed.”

Edward looked troubled and angry as he came towards Jacob.

Jacob immediately tried to blank his mind. He wanted to tell Edward, but this wasn’t just his secret, it was Chloe’s and Clark’s as well, and they had wanted it to stay secret so he had to keep it from his best friend. Even if he didn’t want to.

“You skipped school.” Edward sniffed him before going still. “Were you meeting with someone? Did something happen?”

For a split second the thought of Clark catching him as he fell flashed through Jacob’s mind, but he pushed it away, looking to his right. “No.”

God, he hated lying to Edward!

He didn’t notice Edward’s face both showing hurt and anger because the moment he looked back at his friend the vampire was emotionless.

“Come on.” Edward growled, grabbing Jacob and towing him back to the car. “You shouldn’t miss school like this. You only go to schoolonce you know.”

“Unless you’re a vampire.” Jacob chuckled, but Edward didn’t laugh or let go of him.

Of course, Jacob had no way of realizing that Edward could smell Clark all over him, that he’d seen a flash of Jacob in Clark’s arms looking up into his face, or that the vampire was doing his best to not give into bloodlust and hunt down the person who’d had Jacob against him so close and tight that he smelt only of him.

Or that the reason why he was holding him was to try and remove the other person’s scent from Jacob and once more place his ownscent there instead.

Yes, Jacob didn’t know this, so he didn’t understand Edward’s somber mood the rest of the day.
