Title: Of Imprinting And Such
Sequel to: Claiming the Wolf
Pairing: Jacob/Edward, Jacob/James
Warnings: SLASH and other unconventional pairings, AU
Summary: Six months later. When Sam tells Edward something in secret the vampire leaves Forks to find out for himself if it is true, and Jacob is left behind confused and with only Bella as company. Why did Edward really leave? What's going on with the pack? And one of the best questions yet...why is James back? What does this all have to do with Jacob's imprinting Edward?
Note:Whenever I get around to writing the sequel, it’ll be an Jake/Ed and James/Seth (with a little James/Jake at the beginning). Just wanted you all to know.
Warning: SMEX. If you’re too young to be reading this----well, how sneaky of you! Lol.
Edward never would have believed it if he hadn’t seen it. He’d expected things between his family and Jacob’s pack to be tense at best, and they had been, but a week had seemed to be enough to cool things down to the point where Rosalie and Alice were playing against Victoria and Leah in dominoes, both sides extremely competitive and refusing to lose. Emmet was cheering his wife, while Bella and Jasper watched television together, Bella’s head leaning against his shoulder, face bright red yet contented.
From their smells Edward could tell that nothing had happened between Bella, Jasper and Alice, but they were getting closer, and it was only a matter of time in his opinion.
Carlisle and Esme were sitting on the loveseat, watching the movie with Bella and Jasper, sending them knowing smiles every once in a while.
James had kept in contact, saying that Laurent and his group had been moving a lot and he and Seth were tracking them. The sisters left behind were worried and upset, which was probably why they were throwing themselves so much into the competition with the Cullen females.
Edward knew that neither Victoria nor Leah were quite sure whether they liked the Cullens or not, but they were at least giving them a chance, and that was important.
And his family was also trying to be as nice and welcoming as possible. Esme had already won over the two females completely with her sweetness and caring attitude, and both had a grudging respect for Rosalie’s bitchy bluntness, but the others they still hadn’t decided on.
Sighing, Edward left the living room and went up the stairs towards his bedroom, feeling the connection that had lessened yet never faded during his absence. He opened the door and found Jacob lying down on the floor, eyes closed, listening to music on his I-pod and shaking his head to the rhythm.
For a moment the vampire just leaned in the doorway, observing him silently. He knew that he’d put a huge strain on their relationship by leaving and staying away for so long, and he knew that things would be different by the time he returned, especially with what he’d found out. Still, he couldn’t help but feel the insecurity rise in his throat. Jacob was still his boyfriend, had still decided for him despite the fact that they weren’t Imprinted, but nothing hadhappened between them more than a few kisses since Edward had returned and it had him nervous.
Before he’d left they hadn’t been able to keep their hands, or mouths, off of each other, and now that he’d come back, every time he’d tried initiating something Jacob would just lessen the intensity of the touches, of the kisses, and they’d end up only holding each other.
And Edward wanted to know why.
It was times like these in which he wished that he could still read Jacob’s mind. That way he could know what he was doing wrong and get it right.
“What are you brooding about this time?” Jake’s amused voice surprised him out of his thoughts.
Edward blinked, and if he could blush he would have. “I’m not brooding.”
“Sure.” Chuckling, Jacob leaned up on his elbow, smirk in place. “Tell that to someone who doesn’t know you.”
“Do you?” The question was out before Edward could stop himself.
“Do I what?” Jake asked, smile slipping slightly.
“Know me.” The vampire went to sit on the ground next to his boyfriend, eyes trained on the ground before them. “And do I still know you?”
Turning off his I-pod, Jake pulled off the remaining earphone and sat up as well, eyeing him in silence.
“I went away for six months.” Sighing, Edward forced himself to look at Jake. “We’ve both changed during this time, I mean, you have your own pack now, and I’m proud of all you’ve accomplished and of the man you’re becoming---.”
“But.” Jake spoke the word, anticipating it.
“But,” Edward continued, gaze sliding to the ground once more. “I’m not exactly sure where I fit in anymore.”
There was a moment’s silence, and then there was heat to his right, Edward looking up in surprise to realize that Jacob had moved without his noticing, so close to him, touching his hair in near reverence.
“Jake?” Golden eyes widened in surprise as Jacob’s fingers trailed out of his hair and down his cold cheek, the contrast of the heat causing shivers to race up and down his spine.
“You’re an idiot.” Jake chuckled softly, cupping Edward’s cheek.
He could see the fear and insecurity in the vampire’s eyes, and he felt for having some part in putting those emotions there, but Jake just smiled, leaning closer and rubbing his cheek against Edward’s in a pure, soothing, canine move.
“The Original Wolf ended up liking someone else.” Edward whispered, closing his eyes, voice vulnerable.
“I’m not the Original Wolf.” Jacob responded softly, voice gruffer than usual, as his lips trained on that cold skin, beginning to nip his way down the stony jaw towards the long, elegant neck.
Edward whimpered at the sensation, subconsciously craning his neck to grant his partner better access. He leaned in closer, moving without thought between Jake’s thighs as the wolf pulled him closer.
“I only want you.” Jake bit down harder on the curve of Edward’s neck, grinning savagely when the vampire sucked in a rapid breath, his scent growing rapidly musky with arousal, and his fingers clenched at Jake’s shoulders.
His vamp always appreciated a little pain mixed in with his pleasure.
“They ended up dead.” Edward whispered, revealing more and more the doubts and insecurities he’d been hiding deep within him since his return from Romania. “The Original Vampire couldn’t take not being the only one in her love’s heart.”
“We don’t have any problem then.” Jacob announced, beginning to slowly unbutton Edward’s shirt. “You don’t have to share my heart with anyone.” Pulling away from his vampire’s skin, the wolf waited until Edward opened his golden eyes again before meeting that lusty, yet concerned gaze. “I’m not going to make the same mistakes she did.”
Edward looked away.
Jacob reached for his partner’s chin and forced him to look at him. “I love you.” He said forcefully, trying to get the point across clearly. “I know you’re full of defects and I love every one of them, even if your brooding is completelyinsane sometimes.”
Edward looked like he didn’t know whether to smile or frown at that.
“I mightn’t have Imprinted on you, but I chose you, of my own free will, and in the end, Ed, that’s worth so much more than any imprinting.” He leaned forward and rested his forehead against that cold one. “I’m not saying I don’t know what the other wolf went through. While you were gone I have felt attraction for someone else, but I didn’t do anything. I preferred to play dumb because if I had to face it I’d hurt someone I cared a lot about and I didn’t want to do that.”
Ed was still, pulling away so he could look in Jacob’s face.
“Because even if we didn’t Imprint and even if I am capable of being attracted to other people, I still love you.” Jacob felt somewhat embarrassed at those words, but he needed to say this, needed Edward to understand. “The reason why I’d never leave you or be with anyone else is because I love you, I choose you, and no destiny or anything is ever going to change that.”
Edward lowered his gaze, and he went paler than usual---which Jacob had discovered some months into dating happened whenever Edward blushed. Unlike humans, who went red, Edward went paler, and it made the wolf smirk to realize that he had his vamp blushing.
“So you’re not going to ask me to accept some sort of threesome?” Edward finally asked, gaze still lowered.
He’s just too cute.
Grinning, Jake shook his head. “One threesome in the family is enough, at least in my books.”
Edward grinned, raising his golden gaze. “So I’m not the only one noticing how close Alice, Bella and Jasper have been getting since we all returned?”
“Who hasn’t?” Jacob wanted to know. “At least, when they finally hook up, people will stop whispering about us. Your family will finally have someone else to tease.”
Edward chuckled. “And I’d just gotten used to it.”
Observing his boyfriend for a moment, Jake smiled and wrapped his arms around the slenderer male, drawing him close again as he took in a deep whiff of that scent that was purely Edward. “I missed you, goddammit.” He whispered, pressing his nose to the skin of Edward’s neck and taking in a whiff, his wolf smugly pleased that his scent was once more covering the vampire possessively. “Don’t ever leave me again.”
And then Edward seemed to break.
His lips found Jacob’s furiously, needy.
And unlike all the times in which he’d pulled away to allow them time to get more used to each other again before getting physical, Jacob kissed back with the same amount of ferocity, digging his fingers into Ed’s hair tightly as he kept him captive, taking the kiss deeper.
“Jake,” Edward whispered as in one move he’d straddled the wolf’s lap, pressing down on his jutting hard-on, causing them both to moan at the contact.
Hands trailing heavily down the side of Edward’s body, Jacob’s fingers closed over his partner’s hips, pushing him down harder as he began to slowly thrust upwards against him, twin hisses of pleasure escaping their lips mid-kiss.
It’d been so long…
With a single, fluid movement Jacob stood, pulled Edward up with him, and deposited the vampire roughly on the bed Edward had bought soon after going out officially with him. Jake then turned his back on his boyfriend, canine-sharp eyes scanning the room for the blood red material he was in need of.
“Jake?” Edward’s voice was husky and confused, eager yet trying not to push too far.
When he found the scarf Bella had given him to chase away the chill of Forks, Jacob wound the material in his hands and tested its strength before smirking and turning back to a now curious Edward. “Break this, and we stop.” With that semi threat, Jacob crawled onto the bed towards Edward.
Golden eyes widened in shock as the vampire realized what Jacob was planning on doing with that scarf, but he meekly allowed the wolf to tie his wrists together a little too tightly and then push Edward down, tying the rest of the scarf to the headboards.
Both of them knew that with Edward’s vampiric strength he could easily break free of the scarf-handcuffs, could break the headboard, but Jacob had given an order, and Edward felt his arousal deepening at the feeling of vulnerability as his hands were tied above him.
He and Jacob knew that he wasn’t going to free himself.
Leaning over his body, Jake grinned evilly in a way that caused Edward’s dick to throb painfully before bringing his lips down to the vampire’s cold ones. Edward leaned upwards as much as he could in that position, opening his mouth to his boyfriend’s invasion, gasping for breath when Jacob finally pulled away and began to lick his way down the chiseled jaw and long, elegant neck.
“Jake…” Edward groaned as Jacob’s tongue glided over his collarbones teasingly, tasting his skin.
Jake murmured appreciatively against the cold, diamond-like skin as he slowly made his way down Edward’s body. His mouth explored every inch of the body that he’d been denied for so many months, going deliberately slow, taking great pleasure from Edward’s agonized whimpers as his lower region twitched desperately for the attention his upper body was receiving.
“Impatient little leech.” Jake chuckled huskily as he ran his tongue up the bride of a rib before lowering it down Edward’s stomach to tease his naval.
“Jacob!” Edward groaned, giving a thrust upwards, trying to get some friction to his now agonizingly painful hard-on, and yet Jake was position in a way that all Edward thrust against was air. “Fuck Jake! Do something already!” He pulled at his arms.
Jacob noticed this and paused from where he’d been nibbling at the skin right below that perfect little naval. “You break that scarf and I leave you just as you are.”
“But you need this just as much as I do!” Edward had never come so close to whining before in his life.
The wolf began to pull away, as if to prove his point.
“All right!” Edward snapped, realizing he wasn’t going to win this. “You goddamned--!” But the rest of his sentence faded into a loud moan as Jake bent, slid his hands under the vampire and lifted his hips, engulfing his cock in his mouth. “Fuck!”
Jake chuckled deeply around the cock, causing it to pulsate like crazy and it was all Edward could do to control himself and not tear the whole headboard apart (much less the scarf). There was no way he’d be able to survive it if Jake stopped in the middle of this.
Closing his eyes tightly, Edward whimpered as Jake’s tongue slid up from the base of his cock to the tip, his tongue doing a teasing little dance on the mushroom-head before engulfing him once more. The wolf continued to torture him with the pleasure that was enough to bring him to the brink of ecstasy yet was purposely not enough to give him the little shove needed.
“Jacob…” Edward’s voice was breathy and needy, his cock throbbing viciously in that hot, wicked mouth.
As an answer, the wolf hummed deeply, adding to the vibrations, chuckling when Edward threw back his head and cursed darkly at the sensation.
The message was obvious.
And Edward was far too gone to care about dignity. “Please! Jacob! Please!”
He could have sworn Jacob smirked around his cock before making his movements faster, squeezing his lips tighter against the pulsating cock, and right as Edward was whimpering because it was still not enough, Jacob’s fingernails bit painfully into his asscheeks, the jolt of the pain causing Edward to throw his head back and holler with agonized pleasure as his hips rocketed upwards in his climax.
The world blurred slightly around the edges and he momentarily only heard static as he continued to cum violently into Jacob’s mouth.
Somehow, he must have blacked out for a second, because the next thing Edward remembered was opening golden eyes to the feel of fingers in his ass and a hand around his cock, pumping him hard again in what seemed like an impossible feat.
A gasp escaped his lips as Jacob’s slicked fingers stroked that place within him that set him crazy, and he thrust into the wolf’s hand with a moan.
“I’d forgotten what a little bitch in heat you are when I touch here.” Jacob chuckled smugly, pressing against thatspot, causing Edward to moan wantonly.
“Jacob please!” And yet he was now begging for something completely different.
Smirking in understanding, the wolf pulled out his slick fingers and moved closer, positioning himself between Edward’s thighs, at his entrance, before sliding his cock deep within with one sure thrust.
Fuck, Jacob thought, closing his eyes for a moment at the cold that encircled his burning cock, seeming to swallow him whole greedily. The muscles clenched tightly around him deliberately and the wolf hissed as his cock throbbed appreciatively.
“I can’t…won’t be…long…tonight.” Jake warned, eyes still closed. It’d been so long since he’d been with his vampire, and he was already at his peak with just being inside of him.
“Just fuck me already, Jake.” Edward sounded both pleased and desperate.
And so he did.
Opening his eyes, Jake watched as he thrust into Edward, curving slightly to hit that place every time. The vampire beneath him moaned and struggled with his binds but it was a token gesture because they both knew he could easily break them. Jacob knew that Edward still despised himself sometimes for what he was---for how powerful he was, how inhuman, and as the wolf had guessed, being tied up and at Jacob’s ‘mercy’ was turning the bronze-haired boy on.
“Ed…” Jacob whispered, feeling himself near. His thrusts grew quicker and he leaned forwards, wrapping his large, calloused fingers around Edward’s erection and beginning to pump him in time to the thrusts.
“Jacob!” Edward cried out at the double stimulation.
They continued to chant each other’s names until the wolf buried himself deeply within his lover with a moan of ecstasy as Edward climaxed as well, both lost to the pleasure that’d been denied them for so long.
“Mine.” Jacob, still lost in the climax, growled. “I chose you.” And with that his wolf surged forwards and the first time since Edward had provoked him into fucking him all those months ago, Jacob leaned over the vampire while still cumming and bit down hard on his shoulder.
Jacob’s teeth punctured the diamond skin easily and blood gushed into his mouth as Edward whimpered in pain and pleasure, the sensation triggering another climax, pushing both over the edge in a new way.
And then it was over.
Sudden exhaustion came over Jake, and he only managed to pull his teeth from that once perfect skin and run his tongue over the bloody marks, feeling Edward tremble slightly at the sensation and offer up more of his shoulder.
Chuckling softly to himself, Jacob pulled out of his boyfriend and collapsed on the side of the bed next to him, barely able to keep his eyes open.
Edward, seeming just as sluggish for some odd reason, turned towards him and laid his head upon the beating of Jacob’s heart and rested his arm around the wolf’s waist, snuggling in. “I love you.” He whispered.
“I love you too.” Jacob answered in a yawn.
He fell asleep before he could realize that for the first time since he’d been sired, Edward fell asleep as well.
Neither noticed the golden glow to Edward’s bite mark, or the entwining, intricate cord of golden light that appeared from it and enwrapped both vampire and wolf, binding them together in a way they wouldn’t even begin to suspect until much later.
No, neither were even awake to realize that changes were happening within them, and that they’d completed one step towards Jacob’s destiny.
Closing the small gap to the door, Leah and Victoria turned to each other, eyes wide. They hadn’t been able to see the golden light, but what they had seen had left them breathless, and more than a little speechless.
“Wow.” Leah finally spoke, hand over her heart. “That…was…wow.”
“I know, right?” Victoria whispered back as they hurried away from Edward’s room. They’d gone up to get the boyfriends to not only interrupt their time alone, but because they wanted to play Ludo and needed two other players----but when they’d peeked in on what was going on inside the room, well, they’d gone stiff as boards and all thought had left them.
“That was actually hot. I thought,” Leah shook her head in wonder. “I thought I’d be disgusted but, whoa.”
Victoria grinned her agreement.
The girls continued to walk back in silence, Ludo completely forgotten, the world of smex finally opened to their minds.
Leah then turned to Victoria before descending the stairs. “We gotta do that again.”
Victoria grinned. “I thought that was a given. And if we’re caught peeking in, we can say that we were practicing our stealth!”
Sharing a conspirator’s smile, the vampiress and the werewolf descended together side by side, and now that their minds were opened to the male/male appeal, they couldn’t help but wonder what exactly was going on in their brothers’ little mission.
