A/N1: Severely AU and Slashified...and the characters could very well be considered OOC due to the drastic change in circumstances! Don't like? PLEASE DON'T READ! ALSO! Every single pairing EXCEPT for Carlisle/Esme is uncanon.
IMPORTANT!!!! This is written for my good friend yenny2206, requested as a Christmas Gift by hogwartsvixxen. I hope you two are happy with this :)
A/N: In this universe they are siblings
. You'll know who I'm talking about when you read it.IMPORTANT A/N: This was supposed to be a ten chaptered Jakeward story, and yet its gone passed that an transformed into something else. It's now a CovenxPack story. I just wanted you all to know that.
A/N2: I'm using Alice's height from the novels
, not the height of the actress who portrays her.
Emmett folded his arms over his chest and leaned against a tree, just eyeing the somber, large dark silver colored wolf angrily pacing the forest floor. Tension and anger vibrated from that fur, which was standing on end down his spine in a way that Emmett found ridiculously feline. Had Paul not already been on edge the vampire probably would have called him a cat or something, but he figured that if Alice had gotten hurt he wouldn't have wanted someone messing with him, so he tried putting himself in Paul's paws and refrained from speaking. According to Jacob and Bella supposedly him just being there in the vicinity should be helping the wolf calm down, and if that meant that all he had to do was stay there and make sure Paul didn't do something stupid then Emmett wasn't going to complain. Much. Or at least not right now at least. Jacob would hear an earful later on though.
Thinking of Jacob made Emmett annoyed, because thinking of Jacob made Emmett immediately think of Edward, and then of their relationship, and how creepy yet positive it seemed to be. Sure, the whole mental communication thing gave him the heebiejeebies and he had to shiver sometimes just watching them grinning besottedly at each other for hours in utter silence...but still...Emmett had never seen his brother the way he was with the wolf. Edward wasn't moody and brooding and damn annoying anymore with his philosophies of their being cursed and soulless and other depressing things. Whenever Emmett saw Edward the guy was either tagging along with Jacob and grinning mischievously...or talking about Jacob while grinning mischievously.
And then there was the other wolf x vampire relationship going on right beneath Emmett's very nose.
Rosalie was a bitch. She was an utter ice queen. He loved her, of course, she was his sister and they argued a lot but he loved her and would die for her if it came to that...but she was a bitch, and he was the first to say so. And then there was Bella, cute, quirky, incredibly patient and tolerant Bella. Somehow, despite their utter differences, Rosalie and Bella were annoyingly perfect together. Being with Bella had helped Rosalie a lot, Emmett could tell. After the horrible things that men had done to her it was probably better that she'd ended up being Imprinted on by a girl...and the fact that they were both biologically female and thus would never have been able to physically have children even if they had been human...well...Emmett could see that that had helped Rosalie get over her last little issues with being a vampire.
Being with Jacob and Bella had done marvels for Edward and Rosalie, who had probably been the two most unhappy of the Cullen clan...and that just made Emmett miserable sometimes.
His gaze went to Paul, the large wolf continuing to pace back and forth.
Of course some cute little werewolf couldn't have imprinted on him.
Bella was adorable...and Jacob was really cute too.
And both were manageable in Emmett's mind.
Yet Paul was a completely different story.
He was annoying and bothersome and not cute at all!
Maybe, if Paul hadn't been so tall and muscular and arrogant and mouthy and...and...and...so him...maybe Emmett wouldn't be having such a hard problem with this.
The vampire narrowed his eyes.
It was as he'd always known.
This was all Paul's fault!
Emmett pouted, eyeing the wolf. "You're not cute at all."
Paul froze for a second, before the wolf sent him an annoyed look that obviously said: 'Yeah, well, neither are you!'
Emmett took no offense from that because, yeah, he really wasn't. "Do you have fleas?"
Paul stopped once more and turned to fully face Emmett, sending him a dirty look as he shook his head.
"Do you wash with flea/tick shampoo while as a human to make sure that as a wolf you don't pick any while out or with the pack?" Emmett was truly curious, not caring how insulting this might sound, and anyway, Paul looked so annoyed with him he seemed to have forgotten his previous frustrated worry. "What if one of you has fleas? Will the others catch them?"
Paul snorted, shaking his head once more as he collapsed into a sitting position ungracefully.
"What about scent marking?" Emmett raised an eyebrow. "Do you guys go around spraying your homes territorially?"
Paul let out a series of sounds that could probably pass for a wolf's equivalent of laughter.
It was kinda funny to hear.
Suddenly though Paul rose, his hair standing on edge once more. He growled, barring teeth as he rushed towards Emmett, and before the surprised vampire could defend himself the wolf passed him, stopping in front of him, keeping his back to him. Growls and snarls escaped Paul's mouth, his stance defensive and offensive all at once, his gaze on something Emmett couldn't see.
The bushes moved behind Emmett and a sleeker gray wolf with black spots appeared.
Emmett's eyes widened as he realized that he'd been so close to a natural enemy, and hadn't even noticed!
If Paul hadn't sensed his ex-packmate and...
Emmett pushed away from the tree, watching.
Paul snarled and snapped his fangs, obviously warning the other wolf away from Emmett.
As if Emmett couldn't protect himself should the need come.
Golden eyes narrowed in annoyance.
He so wasn't cute!
The other wolf didn't answer the aggression in Paul, though he kept himself defensive in case Paul should attack. He looked frustrated, anxious, and growled before suddenly there was a flash of heat and instead of the wolf stood the boy, naked as the day he was born. "I can't understand you!"
Paul tensed before the rush of heat momentarily blurred him as well, and then he stood naked and glaring at the other boy. "Go away, Embry."
Embry's gaze slid to Emmett but returned to Paul when the other wolf snarled at him. "I'm not..." he took in a deep breath. "There's vampires in these woods..."
"I know." Paul glared. "Leah's all torn up thanks to one."
Utter shock covered Embry's face. "What?"
"How could the pack not know this? That she was in danger?" Paul snarled at the younger boy.
Embry ran his hand through his hair in agitation. "Our mind-speak, it's giving out on us. Ever since Sam severed his connection with you for...you know..." his gaze went to Emmett again for a second before returning to Paul. "Ever since then things have been going downhill. The pack's suffering, Paul, something's wrong."
Paul frowned darkly.
"Is Leah okay?" Embry asked, taking one step towards the older boy.
"Yeah." Paul nodded, hands on his hips. "Dr. Cullen patched her up, and her wolf healing will take care of the rest."
Embry nodded, took in a deep breath, and then cleared his throat. "Thank him for us."
Paul sent a look behind him at Emmett, as if telling him to relay that message.
Rolling his eyes at the vampire, Paul turned his gaze back on the other wolf. "Why are you here, Embry?"
The younger wolf cleared his throat once more, lowering his gaze. "You really meant it when you said you...Imprinted...on a lee-vampire?" He cleared his throat harsher, blushing slightly and rubbing his head sheepishly, nervously. "It's really possible?"
"Unfortunately." Paul mumbled, folding his arms over his chest.
Emmett snorted. "You're not exactly my first choice either, fleabag."
"I told you." Paul glared, turning towards him. "I do not have fleas!"
"Says you." Emmett scoffed, disbelieving.
"I'm this close-!" Paul growled, taking a menacing step towards Emmett.
The vampire didn't back down, taking a menacing step towards Paul. "To what?"
And then Paul smirked. "To making you check me for fleas yourself."
Not having expected that, Emmett frowned at him, a little unhinged by the fight that wasn't. "I'm a vampire, not a monkey. I don't go checking others for lice and fleas."
"You could." Paul declared with that annoying smirk of his. "I'll even let you rub my belly if you're lucky."
Emmett's mouth fell open in shock at the blatant come on and he had no comeback, just shocked.
Embry looked between them, obviously disturbed by their exchange, reminding Emmett a little too much of how he himself appeared whenever he watched Edward and Jacob or Rosalie and Bella. That annoyed him. Deeply.
"I attacked Sam today." Embry finally spoke. "Twice."
Paul's eyes widened and he turned towards Embry. "What?"
"I was protecting a leech." Embry made a face.
Paul's eyes widened. "It's happened to you already?"
"Already?" Embry's gaze shot up, wide. "You're saying you knew it was going to happen to me?"
"Alice saw it." Emmett finally addressed the younger wolf. "The whole pack are gonna Imprint on 'leeches'." He reached down and picked up some pine needles and threw them in the air as if they were confetti. "Mazel tov."
Embry didn't react to the taunt with annoyance, instead horror, going pale. "So that vampire...?" He staggered back to lean against a tree. "Fuck." He ran a shaky hand over his hair. "It was a male!"
"Welcome to my world." Paul snorted.
"I don't like guys!" Embry exclaimed, seeming close to losing it.
"Preaching to the choir." Paul murmured darkly.
"But I have his scent deep in my nostrils." Embry shook his head. "I was following it when I came across you two." He made a face. "I've never been much of a tracker, you know that Paul, but I know if I follow this scent I can find him."
"He's probably a tracker, it's probably his gift." Emmett declared, the younger wolf's attention on him once more. "Apparently once a wolf Imprints on a vampire, he becomes the 'leech' by leeching off some of the vampire's special ability. Ed can read minds, so Jacob can read Ed's, and Rosalie is graceful, so Bella isn't a klutz anymore." He motioned with his head towards Paul. "And mutt over there is stronger now because that's my thing. Strength. So your vampire must be a tracker, which is why you can track him."
"This is just too much information to digest." Embry whispered to himself, before turning to look at Paul with narrowed eyes. "How much stronger?"
"I can take him," Paul declared pompously towards Emmett. "While human."
"Oh, you're dreaming mutt!" Emmett snapped, annoyed. "You can't take me! Human or wolf!"
"I had you pinned down bloodsucker." Paul sneered. "And I can do it again."
"You distracted me with blood!" Emmett growled, taking another menacing step towards Paul. "That doesn't count."
"You broke my nose." Paul reminded him. "You distracted yourself with blood."
Embry continued looking between them, looking quite horrified. He shook his head and turned as a flash of heat blurred him long enough for fur to sprout as his body shifted, the wolf on all fours as it raced away, leaving Paul and Embry behind without even a goodbye.
"Ungrateful pup." Paul scoffed, turning back towards where Embry had been, shaking his head.
"You done sulking?" Emmett wanted to know, eyebrow raised. "Can we get back to where the others are now?"
Paul turned towards him, eyebrow raised. "I could so take you in human form." And then with a blur of heat he was a wolf once more, tapping his foot impatiently on the ground.
Emmett snorted. "You wish."
The wolf scoffed before taking the lead, leading them back towards the Cullen's home.
Alice slipped into the room and stayed by the door for a moment, just eyeing the injured, sleeping girl. She hesitated for a moment before berating herself and going forwards, sitting down on the edge of the bed and staring down at her. She knew from her visions that this girl was her future, and that that future would be a very happy one...but right now Leah Clearwater wasn't the Leah Clearwater in her visions...and Alice was trying to remind herself that this was the first time they'd actually met. Lines tended to blur once one could see the future, sometimes she forgot she was the only one who saw how things could be, and thus without that insider knowledge sometimes what she did made her seem weird to others. Leah wasn't going to be easy, it was going to take a while to get to those visions, and Alice knew it was going to be a rocky road.
She sighed, gazing down at that sleeping face. "Hello." She reached downwards and gently brushed away a dark lock of hair out of Leah's face. "My name's Alice."
Leah didn't react, still resting and heavily medicated.
"It would really be nice if you didn't hate me when you woke up." She confided before using the same hand she'd brushed away Leah's hair with to pull a strand of her own hair behind her ear. "But that's probably asking too much, isn't it?" The pixie-ish vampire made a face. "Not everyone's lucky enough to get Imprinted on by wolves who weren't taught to kill our kind the second they turned."
She kinda hated Edward and Rosalie right now for how easy they had it Imprinter-wise. Rosalie especially had it incredibly easy considering that she had Bella wrapped around her little finger and she knew it.
Alice's gaze softened as she tore her mind from resentful ponderings and took this opportunity to just really look at her Imprinter. She probably wouldn't have the opportunity to do so this freely without Leah finding out, so she took her time. Quickly she came to the conclusion that Leah was exceptionally pretty, and yet it wasn't in a in-your-face sort of way. Her jaw was too prominent and the slant of her eyes a little too harsh to be beautiful, but they added to her exotic appeal. Her hair was short, looking as if it'd been cut by herself in a fit of rage or something of the like, jagged and natural. From having dragged the wolf here Alice knew that Leah's body was lean muscle, her copper skin feverish against Alice's own pallid cool.
Alice hadn't noticed her eyelashes before though.
She did now.
Leah had eyelashes like feather dusters...
Alice chuckled at the sound of that now that she thought of it, shaking her head.
She liked Leah's eyelashes.
Another thing Alice noticed was that Leah was a lot taller than her. She figured Leah had to be around 5'10", while Alice herself was 4'10"...which had made dragging the near unconscious wolf uncomfortable...
Alice tilted her head to the side and smiled, gazing down at Leah.
Things were starting towards the future she saw, and although not all of the players had appeared and some mightn't arrive for a while...the first pieces were already in motion on the chessboard.
It was going to be interesting to see how everything played out.
They listened as Paul and Emmett shared what they'd learnt from the meeting with Embry Call, and Jacob frowned as he realized that things in the Rez were slowly imploding. The pack was the most important thing to wolves, as was the unity of the pack and their ability to communicate mentally, to be connected...and if the Rez pack was losing that it heralded that something was terribly wrong there. He wondered if the Imprinting on vampires had anything to do with the disturbance but doubted it because out of the four members who made up his own pack, his father was the only one who had yet to Imprint on a leech, and they were fine...even better than ever considering that Paul was stronger and Bella was swift and stealthier. So why was it that while his father's pack was growing stronger-Sam Uley's was disintegrating?
"So this Call boy has Imprinted as well, on one of the nomad vampires out there." Charlie frowned, obviously frustrated and yet trying to deal, trying to finally accept the fact that werewolves were Imprinting on their mortal enemies.
"Yeah." Paul nodded, wearing the clothes he'd discarded before taking off into the forest. "Embry actually attacked his alpha over this vampire, and all the wolves in here can understand when I say that that is a big deal."
Bella and Charlie nodded.
"Not only that, but Embry's real quiet and reserved, so that makes him attacking Sam twice all the more outstanding." Paul declared.
"He also said he could track the vampire, had the scent in his nose." Emmett declared. "The vampire's probably a tracker."
"Things are getting messy." Charlie made a face. "Why aren't the Rez doing something about this?"
"They're all in fucking denial, that's why." Paul glared resentfully. "They'll probably just keep banishing each wolf to Imprint one by one instead of facing what's obviously going on and actually trying to deal with it."
I don't think we have enough room in my house if the Rez pack gets banished.
Jacob made a face.Well, if push comes to shove you can move into my room here and the newcomers can have your room.
Edward decided all on his own from where he was leaning against the wall on the other side of the room.
Jacob snorted and turned his attention to the vampire. You wish
.I'm counting on it, you mean.
Edward countered with a smirk.
Unable to keep his own smirk at bay, the wolf shook his head. Edward, we're on the edge of a catastrophe. Get your mind out of the gutters.My mind was never in the gutters.
Golden eyes rolled in amusement. I think it would do us some good to spend some time together in a house in which Paul Lahote doesn't live.
Jacob grinned teasingly. Your mind is in the gutters.I assure you, I have the purest intentions.
Edward was quick to assure him. You also are somewhat tense because of being in the same house where your father is, and it's understandable. I think it'd be good for us if we could have a moment to ourselves.This place is hardly going to give us that moment.
Jacob reminded him with a raised eyebrow. Unless you've forgotten, your family are vampires who can listen in on us just as easily as my father...and I don't put it passed Emmett to pul a 'Paul' and enter your room just to annoy you.
Edward had to nod his agreement to that last piece. Which is why I think we should take that hunting trip I was talking about...except just us.
Jacob paused, eyeing the vampire standing behind his father. Hunting trip.Hunting trip.
Edward agreed. Don't tell me you've forgotten already?
Jacob glared at him. Of course I haven't forgotten. But you seem to have forgotten that I told you I wasn't sure about that. I mean, I know I've shifted in front of you and the wolf didn't want to tear out your throat...but you're talking about hunting together. The chase. Adrenaline. The kill... It might trigger something that's been dormant up until now.
"We need to deal with this rogue vampire business." Rosalie declared from where she was leaning back against Bella, whose arms were around her waist. "We don't need more dead campers drawings unwanted attention."
"We can't kill them." Jasper frowned. "One of them is Embry's Imprintee, remember that."
"Then we figure out who he is, chain him up somewhere, and do away with his buddies." Rosalie decided.
"We should try speaking to them first before we try anything else." Carlisle gave Rosalie a patient look. "Violence should never be our first choice."
"When in doubt, knock 'em out." Bella mumbled. "We can figure out where we go from there when we have them...restrained...where they can't hurt others."
"I have to agree with Barbie and Kenya." Paul declared. "We can't have those vamps nibbling on innocents. I can't. The wolf in me won't let me."This weekend, just you and me. We can go to my favorite place. Its a couple of hours away but it's secluded and has an ample selection of game we could hunt.
Edward was not giving up on this.
And Jacob was slowly being tempted by the thought of actually being alone with Edward.
He'd never been alone with Edward without someone with extra perceptive abilities around...
Now that he thought about it, he was really getting tempted to accept and just go.
All these weeks of Paul's constant cock-blocking were probably messing with Jacob's ability to think without his body dictating to his mind what was a good idea...
But now that he had the opportunity being waved in front of him...he really wanted it.
Jacob gulped, knowing what would probably happen once he and Edward were truly alone, and while he was still somewhat nervous about that his hormones were truly the ones dictating his actions right now.
"I don't recognize this number." Charlie mumbled, gazing at his phone as it rung before answering it. "Sheriff Black Swan speaking." His eyes widened and then narrowed. "How did you get this number? ... ah, Billy..." He cleared his throat. "So, to what do I owe this phone call Uley?"
Paul looked up, eyes wide, obviously shocked that his old Alpha was calling his current one.Say yes.
Edward urged with a tilt of his lips.
Jacob licked his lips and gulped before finally coming to a decision and nodded. Yes.
"...A meeting..." Charlie paused, gaze going to Carlisle, who nodded. "Carlisle, Alice and I will be there. ... Because Alice is the one who knows the most about this. ... Yes, well, I expected you to bring your Beta so that goes without saying."Great!
Edward grinned brightly at Jacob, though his own nervousness was transmitted despite his obvious excitement.
While Charlie and Sam made plans to meet, Jacob and Edward were making plans of their own...and both were going to be vital to the future.
