“You can’t really be serious.” Lois exclaimed, looking at Lana in horror. “You’re supposed to be on my side! Not encouraging this stupid idiot by being a stupid idiot yourself with your stupid idiocracies!”
“Idiocracies isn’t a word.” Chloe didn’t even look up from where she was going over the books intently.
“Not the point!” Lois snapped, turning on her. “The point is that you two have gone insane!”
“It’s not insanity.” Lana glared, standing, hands on her hips. “I like Embry, and that house was left to me. And with the job Chloe’s going to give me---.”
“I’m giving you a job?” Chloe’s gaze shot up from the books at that.
“---I’ll be able to pay the bills.” Lana continued on as if Chloe hadn’t spoken. “Plus, it’s not like I’m going to starve or anything. I’ll come over every day and eat the food Chloe cooks---,”
“Who said anything about me cooking?” Chloe wanted to know, a little desperate.
“---and anyway, Embry is here.” Lana finished it with her beginning point. “I like him, and he’s my soulmate. Why wouldn’t I want to stay here?”
“Lana, don’t buy into the deceit!” Lois stood, shaking the smaller girl, trying to shake some sense into her. “You’re a modern woman! You should be able to see through this macho chauvinistic attempt to tie us to their beds and keep us pregnant and barefoot!”
“Tied to the bed?” Lana blinked, tapping her finger against her cheek. “I wonder if Embry would try bondage. What do you think? Is he a satin, rope, or handcuffs kinda guy?”
Lois’ mouth fell open.
Chloe began to choke on the coffee she’d been, unfortunately, sipping at that moment.
“And, of course, I want a lot of babies as well, so being pregnant won’t matter to me as long as it’s with someone who will love and cherish and be truthful and faithful to me and only me for the rest of our lives.” Lana continued on, beaming brightly before sending Lois a guilty look. “So, I’m sorry, but I’ve kinda gotten over my disappointment and anger of the situation. I mean, Lois, come on, we’re talking about our SOULMATES.”
Chloe sighed, not choking anymore, and put on her glasses as she continued to read the documents in front of her, knowing that this was going to become a huge debate.
Ever since she’d told Lois and Lana that she was considering staying in Forks Lois had been on her case, talking about the men they had yet to know, biblically, and throwing all sorts of temptations her way. Lois stated that there was no way she was going to stay in Forks, so there was no way she was going to let Chloe stay in Forks (since they were a unit) and she was trying to instead convince Chloe that they needed to move to Laguna Beach and get a tan.
Chloe insisted Lois needed to stop watching so much television.
And now she apparently had Lana’s support, as the girl declared her intention to stay here and openly allow Embry to court and win her.
Chloe didn’t know why this news surprised Lois.
It had been obvious during these last two weeks since they’d started getting to know the wolves, that Lana and Embry had become inseparable, and incredibly happy together. They were always grinning and smiling and giggling and being so besotted with each other that Chloe many times wanted to hit them.
It was irritating.
“How can you settle for being some werewolf’s browbeaten wife?!?” Lois threw her hands up in the air. “Lana! You could be a super model if you wanted! You could have the whole world fall madly in love with you if you wanted them to!”
“They’d only become psychotic and try to kill me if they did.” Lana countered, hands on her hips, eyes narrowed. “Why not just stay with my soulmate and if he goes insane I at least know he won’t try to hurt me because hurting me would be worse than hurting himself!”
Lois opened her mouth, closed it, and then pouted. “Good point.”
Lana smirked. “Plus, Lois, you haven’t really thought of the advantages to this whole situation.”
Chloe tried desperately to concentrate on the books, but Lana’s mischievous tone was just too intriguing.
“What advantages? None are even rich or anything.” Lois frowned, folding her arms over her chest rebelliously.
“Yes, true, but what they lack in monetary possessions they make up in other ways.” Lana grinned. “Think about it Lo. You could boss Paul left right and center and he wouldn’t be able to do anything about it! He’d have to take it! He can’t even shift while around you, and while in human form you’re stronger than him. Who do you think would have the pants in that relationship and everyone would know it without you having to brag about it? Which would make you having the pants that much cooler.”
“I hadn’t thought about that.” Lois paused, listening. “Go on.”
Elbows on the table, Chloe propped her chin on her clasped hands and watched the scene unfold between the two brunettes.
“And think about the sex.” Lana giggled, blushing slightly. “You can literally say you’re having wild animalistic sex.”
Lois gulped, eyes widening slightly.
“And it’ll be different depending on the phases of the moon so you couldn’t possibly get bored with him doing the same thing over and over again!” Lana pointed out, finger pointed in the air for emphasis. “Some nights he’ll want to make long sweet love to you so slowly you’re begging for him to stop or keep going…and on others you won’t even make it to the bed! Maybe not even to the house!”
By now Lois was biting her bottom lip, eyes glazing over slightly.
Lana shared a conspirator’s grin with Chloe at this good sign.
“And also, he’s a wolf, animalistic, passionate.” Chloe added. “He won’t have any embarrassment if you suddenly want to do some of your more outrageous kinkiness. Like the aforementioned bondage.”
“Handcuffs.” Lois was slowly losing herself into a fantasy. “He’s definitely a handcuff kinda guy.”
“Don’t you have some handcuffs for such a time as that?” Lana pointed out.
“See? You two are already matching up.” Chloe pointed out.
“And if you say you want to play dress up,” Lana continued. “You know he won’t have any problems being the Big Bad Wolf to your Little Red Riding Hood.”
Lois began to fan herself. “The better to eat you with, my dear.”
Chloe bit on her bottom lip to keep from laughing.
Lana brought her hand to her mouth to muffle her own little giggle.
Lois, thankfully, was too lost in her fantasy to really pay them much attention and notice their amusement.
“And what about outdoors sex? Didn’t you say you always wanted to do it up against a tree?” Lana asked.
Lois nodded, pulling out of her fantasy to turn to Chloe. “I can’t let Chloe be the only one with that experience! Or kink!”
Lana’s eyes widened, turning to the blonde in surprise. “NO WAY!”
“It’s not a kink.” Chloe groaned, blushing. “It was only like twice.”
“EIGHT!” Lois exclaimed, annoyed. “It was eight times! And eight times means it’s a kink!” Beginning to count the times off on her fingers, Lois started to prove her point. “You two did it in the pool of his mansion, on the balcony, in the forest outside of the mansion, on top of the trunk of Lex’s Jaguar, behind the bleachers at school when the game was cancelled due to the torrential downpour, out in Miller’s Field, against the Kent’s barn, and behind the rocks during that beach trip we took last year.”
Lana’s mouth fell open. “Whoa…”
Chloe’s eyes were wide and on her cousin. “How the hell do you know about all of those times? I didn’t even remember most of them and I was the one doing it!”
Lois grinned. “I have my sources… Plus, you’re really loud.”
“You pervert!” Chloe threw her hair scrunchie at Lois in horror. “You stalkerish, voyeuristic pervert!”
“Says the girl with the outdoors sex kink.” Lois snorted.
“It’s not a kink!” Chloe blushed as she denied this vehemently.
There was a moment’s silence.
Lois sighed. “Whatever happened between you two anyway? I mean, I understand me and Lana breaking up with dumb and dumber, but you and Lex had been so strong for so long. I mean, I was already thinking up of names to give your bald, brilliant children.”
Chloe sighed, running her fingers through her hair. “It’s…it’s complicated.”
“Uncomplicated it enough to explain.” Lois demanded.
“I loved Lex, and he loved me, but in the end we wanted different things in life and although we didn’t want to let go of each other, we realized that if we stayed together one of us was going to have to give up their dreams or their plans and they’d end up hating and/or resenting the other.” Chloe sighed, looking out the window. “In the end we decided it was more mature to end it while we were still on a good note and able to look back at our times together fondly.”
Lois and Lana shared a look.
Lana sighed. “You’re so mature Chloe. I’d never be able to do that and remain friends with my ex like you.”
“Me neither.” Lois declared, leaning back against the door.
“Lex and I will always love each other in one way or the other, but we know that we don’t belong together, and we want each other to be happy.” Chloe admitted, smiling. “I mean, I was heartbroken when it happened, but we’ve been talking lately and we both know this was the best thing we could have done, and we both want to encourage the other to seek the happiness we want them to have. We’re moving on.”
“Well…” Lana bit her bottom lip to try and keep herself from grinning. “I’m sure Jacob wouldn’t mind that you have a kink when it comes to outdoor sex.”
“He’d probably enjoy it.” Lois added with a smirk.
Chloe went beet red. “It’s not a kink!”
The sound of the bell above the door ringing caused the three girls to turn in time to see the three wolves entering the shop, accompanied by Emily.
Emily hurried to hug the girls and started a conversation immediately with Lois about their (surprisingly enough) shared love of Japanese animation.
Lana and Embry gravitated towards each other, giggling and smiling and blushing like they always did when around each other.
Chloe looked down at the books and wondered if they’d get seriously injured if she threw the heavy volumes at them.
Her gaze went to Lana’s bare neck, remembering her saying that she didn’t need the charm anymore since she’d already gotten what she’d wanted.
Lana hadn’t worn it since that day two days ago.
And she really didn’t need it.
Embry and Lana held hands, sighing and smiling into each other’s eyes.
Paul gave a sigh and drifted reluctantly to listen in to Lois and Emily’s conversation. He himself hated Japanese animation, and upon learning this Lois had taken it upon herself to rent every single one she could find in the blockbusters in Port Angeles and force the wolf to watch them with her.
At least it gave him some conversational material.
“What’re you doing?” Jacob asked, appearing by her side, looking easily over her shoulder at the books. “Still going over the figures?”
“Hey Tentacles.” Chloe smiled at him before nodding, sitting back down, waiting for him to do the same. “According to these records the store seems to get a good profit on its own, and I have ideas already on how to raise the sales, and since this building belongs to the old owner, or, well, to me now that I worked all that out with him and Charlie as witness, well, I don’t have to worry about paying rent on the space, and that will help me with the costs of living.”
Jacob’s gaze rose from the books to her face.
“And then I was thinking, of maybe getting an internet site put up advertizing the products and maybe doing some shipping so that people don’t have to always come here to get it. I mean, Forks isn’t exactly the biggest touristic place unless you’re a werewolf or vampire or something.” Chloe continued on. “So good marketing is really a necessity.”
Jacob leaned an elbow against the table and propped his jaw against it, watching her.
“Mr. Miller had some really good suppliers that he got his merchandise from, and I have some acquaintances in Metropolis who would help me with getting new suppliers as well, and I’m thinking of doing a little redecoration of the place to give it a less old look and a more antique look.”
Jacob smiled slightly.
“I mean, it’s an antique store, right? So I think that once the person walks into the store they should feel like they’d been transported through time.” Chloe’s face lit up and she moved her hands around wildly as she spoke. “I’m thinking a softer color bulb, to give the illusion of it being candlelight, and instead of a usual cash register I’m going to get one of those antique looking ones. You know? I was looking at them on the internet and it just adds this certain touch to it.”
Jacob’s smile grew tender.
“What do you think about role-playing?” Chloe turned to him curiously.
Jacob choked on air as he suddenly sprang up straight in the seat, going horribly beet red immediately, eyes as wide as melons. “R-role-p-playing?”
“Yeah, I was thinking about maybe wearing different antique clothes and jewelry to try and advertize, you know? Add to the feeling.” Chloe gave him a curious look, wondering what exactly had happened to him seconds ago. “But if you think it’s lame or something---.”
“No!” Jacob waved his hands frantically in front of him, shaking his head. “I think you’d look amazingly cute in costume!”
He then blushed darker, and looked down at the table.
Chloe bit down on her bottom lip, trying to keep from giggling, as she reached forwards and ruffled his hair. “You’re such a cute little puppy.”
“I’m not a puppy.” He grumbled, unable to look her in the eyes.
“How was school?” Chloe asked, reminding both him and herself that she just couldn’t like a guy still in high school. She just couldn’t. She was too used to being the younger one in the relationship, used to being with a man not with a boy.
So while Jacob was incredibly cute, and sweet, and helpful, and kind, and hot and an incredible kisser with a body that was just sinful…
She blushed, shaking her head, trying to remember what it was she was trying to think before her mind had wandered.
The bell over the door rang.
Everyone’s gaze turned to the door.
Three eyes widened at the male standing in the doorway.
The wolves frowned at the reaction of the girls, while Emily looked on with intrigued confusion.
Chloe stood, in shock. “Lex?”
