You live in Cali and your parents want you to move to La Push, Washington. You of course... don't want to go and leave you BFF Savanna and 1st real Boyfriend, Chris. I'm starting this where you are packing up your last box of stuff for you to move..........

I was packing the last box of stuff in my room. The faded red walls and odd light spots caused from the posters i used to have up on my walls bringing tears to my eyes. I forced them back and taped up the final box moving it out into the hall. As i was setting it down i heard my mom call me from downstairs:
"Jackie! Chris is here!" I bolted down the stairs out the front door and into Chris's unsuspecting arms as soon as i heard his name. He hugged me close and shut the door behind me so that we were alone on my front porch. We held onto each other for who knows how long before he finally spoke up.
"I love you." He whispered in my ear. I pressed myself closer to him and let a few tears fall.
"I love you too Chris." I told him, my voice cracking. He pulled back to look at me and wiped the tears off my cheek.
"Don't cry Jackie." He pleaded with me. I shook my head and stretched up on my toes to kiss him. He slowly wrapped his arms around my waist and I wrapped mine around his neck. Our kiss lasting a good 5 minutes and when i pull away i hugged him again.
"Bye Chris." I whispered. He pulled away whispered 'bye' and then walked back to his car and drove away and as soon as he was out of my line of sight i stepped back inside, shut the door, leaned back against it, slid to the floor, wrapped my arms around my legs and then buried my face in my knees and sobbed my little heart out.
About an hour or so later my dad came over to me, picked me up and took me into the living room where he sat down with me in his lap on the couch.
"Jackie, baby, come ‘on, we're only moving a couple states away, you guys can still see each other all the time. It'll be all right." He told me, trying to comfort me. i jumped up and out of his hold on me
"NO IT'S NOT OK! I love HIM DAD, I honestly LOVE HIM ! ! !" I yelled at him. I was tempted to tell him i was pregnant but i wasn't... we hadn't even done 'it' yet. I was still crying but now I was pissed too! He tried to say something but i cut him off.
"I don’t want to leave yet!" I yelled at him before sinking down to the floor once again. He just walked out of the room and let me cry myself out. It took a few hours but it DID finally happen, and then we packed all of our stuff in the two moving vans we rented except for essentials for the next two days, then they drove off. And 2 days later we got on a plane and headed to La Push, Washington........
It had been a month since I had gotten there but i was settling in now... I was at the beach when i saw someone familiar... Jacob Black.... I purposefully steered clear of him by moving my stuff to the other side of the beach but he stalked me.... I was about to turn around and go home but he stepped in front of me and started talking to me(btw u have already met)
"Hey Jacklyn," He said smiling. I rolled my eyes.
"Hi Jacob."
"How are you?"
"Fine... you?"
"Well, I'm doing better now." He said, smiling even bigger. I scoffed.
"And why is that?"
"Because you're talking to me."
"And that is such an amazing thing that it just made your day!" I said sarcastically.
"Actually yes... it did make my day."
"Yeah, uh-huh, sure it did...."
"It did, you can think whatever you want to but it really did make my day."
"Good for you." I said rudely.
"Ok, cut the s**t Jackie. I know you know I like you and I know that you don’t like me but you could still be nice." He told me frustrated. I stood there frozen... "Jackie what's wrong?" i shook my head to clear it and looked up at him.
"No, I didn’t know that you liked me... and you're wrong... I DO like you." I told him, blushing and looking down.... He grabbed my chin - gently - and tilted my head back up.
"I'm glad to hear that." He whispered before he bent his head down and touched his lips to mine. He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me closer to him and I wrapped my arms around his neck. After a few minutes i jumped up and wrapped my legs around his waist. He held me tighter and i felt one of his hands tangle in my hair. He traced my bottom lip with his tongue but i smirked pulling away. He looked up at me and smiled and i smiled back.
"I love you." He whispered.
"What was that? I didn’t hear you?" I toyed with him.
"I said i love you." He said, barely louder than before.
"Still can’t hear you." I said, egging him on.
"I said i love you!" He practically yelled. I smiled and leaned my forehead against his.
"I love you too." I said softly, sliding down and standing up on my own. He looked down at me and i smiled up at him. I stretched up on my toes as if to kiss him but when he bent his head down to kiss me back i turned my head and he kissed my cheek. Then he pulled me into a hug.
"I have something to tell you Jackie."
"It'll have to wait till tomorrow... I have to go." I saw his hurt expression and kissed him quickly. I put my hand on his cheek. "I'll see you tomorrow... I promise." I told him before grabbing my stuff and running to my car. I got in and drove home where nobody was home so i went up to my room. And sat down on my bed thinking about what had just happened.... i had just fallen in love.... woah!!! That's a lot to take in in one day... my head was full and spinning so i went to take a shower. When i got out i had a towel wrapped around myself when i heard someone knock on my bedroom window (it was dark out already) i walked over to it and saw a figure huddled against the window sill. I was scared but then i heard my name being hissed....
"Jackie... open the window!" Hissed a familiar voice.
I opened the window and Jacob came in. then shut the window after he was in. he noticed what i was wearing and then took a double take.
"Should i...come back later...?" i shook my head.
"Maybe another time you can come back later... just let me get dressed... stay here." I told him, grabbing a bra, underwear and a really really long shirt and short shorts and taking them to the bathroom with me. I straightened my hair and then threw on what i had grabbed. I pulled the shirt up in a hair tie behind my back and then put on light makeup and went back to my room. Jacob was lying on my bed and sat down on the edge and then layed down next to him. He rolled on top of me and kissed me.
"Well hi there." I said smiling when he broke off. He laughed and kissed me again. I rolled so that i was lying on top of him so that i could breathe and then we made out for a while. He eventually started reaching for my shirt. I let him take it off and then he rolled over again so that he was on me and kissed my neck. He pulled back and looked at me... "Do you want to go farther or not?" I frowned.
"No. Not now." I said softly. He smiled at me, murmured ‘ok’ and then brought his mouth back to mine. We stayed like that for a while then when I broke off for air and he moved down to kiss my neck. A couple hours later we stopped kissing and I laid my head down on his chest and fell asleep around two in the morning.

When i woke up in the morning Jake's arms were still around me and he was still asleep. I leaned over and kissed him lightly and he woke up.
"Good morning! "I chirped, getting out of bed and going over to my closet. He watched me get dressed and then grabbed his shirt off the floor. I sat down next to him and he pulled me into his lap and kissed me... then that soon turned into a make out session. About 30 minutes later I heard a knock at my door.
"Yeah?" i called, breathless.
"Can I come in?" It was my little sister Lyla.... I paused.
"Uh, yeah, sure Ly..." She walked in and saw me in Jake's lap and smiled at him.
"Who is this?" She asked.
"This is my boyfriend... Jacob." I told her. She jumped up on my bed and rammed into him and hugged him. He hugged her lightly and smiled at her.
"Hi... what's your name?" He asked.
"Lyla!" She said, smiling. He smiled too.
"That's a cute name." He told her.
"Your name is cute too." She told him, smiling yet again. I laughed and he mumbled thanks and then I sent Lyla out of my room.
"Little sister?" He asked. I nodded and leaned my head against his shoulder. He wrapped an arm around me and kissed the top of my head.
"I love you." He said quietly.
"I love you too." I whispered. We sat there like that for a few minutes and then I decided that he needed to meet my parents.
"Come downstairs with me."
"Ok Why?"
"You need to meet my parents."
"Jackie, no I’ll come back later, really I can’t meet you parents looking like this."
"Promise you'll come?"
"Yes, of course, I’ll get to see you." I smiled and blushed.
"'Kay, be here around 4:30ish." I said. He nodded, kissed me softly and then jumped out my window and ran off. I went downstairs and started making breakfast because i wanted my parents to be in the best mood possible today. I made eggs and toast and when they finally crawled out of bed and came downstairs they were extremely happy to see breakfast set out on the table for them. I wasn’t hungry so I put the eggs away, cleaned up, and left to go back up to my room. I saw my phone on the edge of my desk and went over and grabbed it. I had a text from Jacob
Hey Jackie :)
Lol, hey Jake. Whats up?
No really I just wanted to talk to you
But were texting, not talking
Yeah, I noticed = |
Hahaha Lol well come over.
I can’t
Yes you can.
No I really can’t, my dad grounded me.
Can you still come over later?????
Yeah, of course i can.....
How? Ur grounded....
I'll sneak out.
No, I don’t want you getting in trouble....
I won’t, i can tell my dad i need to go to the store or something, or just sneak out my window.
U sure???
Yah, totally. Don’t worry babe... I’ll be there.
K... ily
ily too... see you later
See ya... bye
~End of text convo~
I wondered how he was going to get out of his house because I surely wouldn’t be able to sneak out. But then again he had told me some time ago that his dad was in a wheelchair so I guess he wouldn’t be able to chase after him.... oh well. I wasn’t going to worry about it, I was going to go tell my parents who they were going to be meeting later. I hoped they didn’t get mad at me.... they didn’t really approve of dating, although they let me before with Chris and all, but that is a long story. And they DEFINITLY wouldn’t approve of me making out with my boyfriend, of one day, in my bed while they were asleep.... Well they would never know.... so I didn’t have to worry about it. I waited an hour until it was 1o'clock and then went downstairs into the living room and sat down in the chair across from them.
"Mom, dad, I have a new boyfriend. And he is coming over today around 4:30 to meet you. And I really really really like him... I think I love him(I do I just don’t want them to freak) and I want you guys to like him too. He’s a great guy and he’s loving and he cares about me and I want you to accept him and see how wonderful he is." I rushed out. They sat in silence for a minute.
"Well, if he is as polite and loving and caring as you say he is then you can date him. But if not I will put the kibosh on your relationship. Do you hear that?" My dad told me. I nodded.
"Alright then, go get changed and get ready." My mom said, turning back to the TV show they had been watching. I escaped the living room without a smile but the second I rounded the corner I had a smile stretching from ear to ear. I went up to Lyla's room and went in, she was playing with some plastic toys on the floor.
"Jackie!" She yelled and ran up to me and hugged me.
"Hey Ly, um, listen, about who you met this morning.... Jacob?"
"What about him sissy?"
"Well, i need you to pretend you didn’t meet him, and that you didn’t see us kissing.... can you do that?"
"Yes, i can, but why do i need to?"
"Because i will get in very big trouble if you don’t. And I won’t be able to go out and buy your birthday present." I told her, her b-day was in 3 weeks and I was getting her some 'really cool' new Barbie thing. She was quiet for a minute.
"Okay, I didn’t meet him yet, and I didn’t see you guys kissing either!" She said happily. I hugged her, mumbled thank you and then went into my room to get something to wear. I grabbed my strapless black tube-top and some really skinny skinny jeans and a bra with clear straps and went to the bathroom to change. I put everything on, straightened my hair even more, put on light makeup - mascara, eyeliner, lip-gloss and light coppery shiny eye shadow - and then went back to my room, grabbed my knee-high converse (black) and knee-high socks, put them on then grabbed a light black Aeropastale jacket and polled it on over my tube-top. I looked at myself in my full length mirror behind my door. It would work, i thought to myself. I went downstairs and waited for an hour outside before I finally saw Jacob driving down the street. He parked at the curb by my house, got out and walked over to me. He stood in front of me, pulled me into a hug, and when he let go he bent his head down and pressed his lips against mine. We stood there like that for a few minutes before i pulled away.
"Well that's an interesting way of saying hello..." I said softly. He laughed.
"Yeah, I guess, but I only have a couple of hours -- I have someone covering for me and they can only be at my house for like... 3 hours... so..."
"Alright, that's fine. Let’s go." I told him, taking his hand and dragging him to the front door. "You stay here I will go inside, wait 10 seconds then ring the doorbell." I told him before slipping inside. I went into the living room and sat down beside my mom and then a few seconds later Jake rang the doorbell.
"I'll get it" My mom said getting up and going to the door. I slowly got up and followed her and she was inviting him in. I smiled when I saw him and he smiled right back. I walked to his side and he put his arm around me and kissed the top of my head. My dad came down the stairs then and shook Jake's hand. The rest of night went extremely well and when Jake said he had to leave I walked him out to his car. And waited until I saw my parents move to the living room where they wouldn’t be able to see us. I turned toward Jake and sighed.
"Well that went well. "He said casually.
"Yeah, my parents love you." I said dumbfounded. He laughed and kissed me lightly causing me to come out of my trance. I shook my head a little and leaned into him.
"So, your parents are going to let you date me right?"
"Probably, why?"
"Well, because I wanted to see if you wanted to go to the beach tomorrow."
"We don’t need to be dating to go to the beach."
"But if it's a date we do." He said smiling. I smiled.
"Well if they say no then I’ll go to the beach anyways." He deliberated for a minute.
"'Kay. See ya...."
"Later... if you can."
"I'll try, but if not tomorrow."
"Ok, text me later, even if you can come."
"I will. I love you. Bye." He said before getting into his car and driving away. I waited until I couldn’t see his car anymore and then went back inside and sat down in the living room.
"You can't date him." my dad said. I was shocked!
"Wait... what?"
"You can't date him."
"Because you're too good for h-"
"No! I am not too good for him, he is too good for me, and if you can’t deal with that then tough, because I love him! And I am going to date him whether you say I can or not!!"
"Jackie," My mom cautioned.
"No!! I LOVE HIM ! ! ! With ALL of my heart. And he loves me too! And from now on you guys can’t have a say in my love life. Because if I love someone I can’t just shut that off and I am GOING to go after them!!" I yelled, starting to cry. And when my dad tried to say something I muttered 'save it' and went up to my room and sobbed into my pillow.
I cried for who knows how long when I heard my phone vibrate. I grabbed it off the bedside table. I looked at the screen -- it was a text... from Jake.
Hey :D
Whats wrong?
.... They said no...
Oh... so where do we stand on this?
Wait, u think im just going to LET them control my love life?
Idk... are you?
Yeah... c( =
sigh I miss u
Come over
Thank you!!... Lol ily
ily too see you soon. Bye
~End of text convo~
I layed there on my bed staring at the ceiling for about 20 or 30 minutes before I heard a tap on my window. I went over to my window, opened it, and Jake came in. I collapsed into his arms and he held me tightly against him until I heard a sound on the stairs that sounded like my parents coming up the stairs. I quickly ran over to my door and locked it then went back to Jake's arms. I heard the knock at my door, and my parents calling my name but I didn’t care. I put a heavy sweatshirt on and then grabbed my phone and snuck out the window. Jake jumped off the roof before me and I sat down swinging my legs.
• “Jump! I’ll catch you!” He whisper-yelled. I closed my eyes and shoved myself off the roof. A few seconds later I landed in warm strong arms. He kissed my forehead then set me down and we walked to the beach. We walked up to the top of a cliff, sat down and stared up at the sky and looked at it for a while and then a short time after that we layed back and stared up at the starry sky. And before I knew it I was falling asleep in my boyfriend’s arms.
When I woke up me and Jake were still on the cliff and Jake still had his arms around me. But he wasn’t asleep, and he was looking out across the ocean. I rolled over so that I was lying on his stomach and he looked up at me.
“Well good morning.” He said. I smiled.
“Morning!” I chirped as I leaned forward to kiss him. We layed there kissing for a few minutes and when I pulled away I smiled at him and then jumped up and walked to the edge of the cliff. He got up and followed me and stood behind me and wrapped his arms around me I leaned my head back and he kissed my forehead.
“I love you.” He said.
“I love you too.” I told him. We stood there until I heard my phone ring. I pulled it out of my pocket and looked at the screen. Home. Oh god… I was dead….
“Hello?” I answered.
‘Where the hell are you Jacklyn??’ It was my dad.
“Relax dad. I’m safe, I’m fine nobody hurt me. I’ll be home in a little while.” I said, trying to calm him down.
‘No, you will be home in 20 minutes or you’re grounded.’ He said. I sighed.
“I really didn’t want to have to do this but if you make me come home now… I’ll run away.” I told him calmly.
‘Oh really? And just where would you go?’
‘Oh, I’d go live with my boyfriend, get knocked up… actually that doesn’t sound like a bad idea….’ I said, trailing off trying to get him mad at me.
‘Fine, come home whenever!’ He snapped before hanging up.
“Hey.” He said smiling. I smiled back.
“Hey.” I said. We stayed on the cliff for a while longer and then we went to my house again. He dropped me off at the end of the street, kissed me goodbye and then I walked towards my house. My parents yelled at me for sneaking out. Then I told them I had been with Jacob and they – well my dad – turned red and yelled more. My mom just looked at me all sympathetic like. When my dad finished yelling, he glared at my mom, went upstairs banged some things around and then came back down with his suitcases full.
“Tell Lyla I love her and I’ll send letters.” He said before walking out the door and getting in his old beat-up truck and driving away. I stared after him in shock. ‘Had my dad really just walked out on us?’ I asked myself. I knew the answer, he had. There wasn’t any getting around it anymore, but I didn’t really care. He was never much of a dad to me anyways, and he hated my boyfriend. My mom didn’t seem too upset about it either. So her husband had left, he wasn’t a very nice person. I think she was with him in the first place because of how he was in bed. Because she certainly wasn’t with him for his personality. She turned to me and looked at me but I was smiling. I ducked my head and ran up to my room. Then after I had calmed down I went into Lyla's room. She turned towards the door when I opened it.
"Hey Ly." I said softly. I sat down on the floor next to her.
"Hi Jackie!" She said happily. I picked up one of her toys and played with it in my hands while trying to figure out how to word what I was about to say.
"Listen, Lyla, daddy, left. And I know this is probably hard for you to understand but... he's not coming back. He told me to tell you that he loves you and that he will write you a letter soon." I told her. And I felt bad because when I said 'he's not coming back' she dropped her toy and started tearing up. By now she was crying so I pulled her into my arms and held her tight. I cried too, but not because I was going to miss my dad. No I would never miss him. But I was crying because I hated seeing Lyla like this. She deserved better. And I made it a promise to myself that her life beyond this day would be better. I would make sure of it. I sat on the floor with Lyla until she fell asleep from crying. I stood up with her in my arms and took her to her bed. I was about to leave when she grabbed my hand and mumbled 'stay'. So I climbed into her bed behind her, pulled her close, and went to sleep.

~~Next Morning~~

I woke up in Lyla's bed alone. Which was odd. I got up and went into my room and saw a note on my bed. I walked over to it, picked it up, and didn’t recognize the hand writing. So I read it. It was from Jacob, and it said:
I came over really late last night and you weren't in here. I assumed you were somewhere in the house but I didn’t want to go search for you in case of waking someone up. So I wrote you this and then left. And I only wrote it because I left your window open and I wanted to let you know it was me. Text me or call me later,
Love you like CrAzY,
I put it in one of my desk drawers and then got dressed picking out an outfit acceptable for today. ( link: ) Then after I had put it all on I went downstairs. My mom was making breakfast and Lyla was outside in the yard sitting on our lawn swing looking down. And I would swear that for half a second I saw her cheek glistening. (Btw Jackie has her bellybutton pierced ) I walked over to my mom and her eyes widened when she saw me.
"What's with all the black?" She asked. I shrugged.
"Thought it was appropriate." I said, looking out at Lyla again. My mom sighed.
"She's having a hard time accepting the fact that he's gone." She said. I nodded slightly. My mom looked down and then saw my stomach.
"You still have this?" She asked me, pointing to the bellybutton ring. It was black but they had given it to me the night I got I pierced. I nodded.
"Dad picked it out with me." I told her. She nodded, went back to cooking then I grabbed my phone off the counter and went outside and sat down next to Lyla on the swing. She didn’t even look up when I sat down. Just stared at the ground. I tapped her shoulder and she looked at me. Her eyes were red and puffy and her face was still wet. I wiped her tears away and had her look up at me.
"Lyla, don’t be sad about this. You’ll still be in touch with him, and you can probably still see him. Because if mom wont drive you to meet up with him I will. But it's not your fault. I can promise you that." She nodded but then put her head back down. I wrapped an arm around her and pulled her into my lap. She nestled up against me and hid her face in my neck and cried some more. I just held onto her not knowing what else to say. Then my phone vibrated. I pulled it out and it was Jake, calling me. I opened my phone and pressed it against my ear.
"Hello?" I whispered.
"Jackie? What's wrong?" He asked.
"Um, I’ll tell you later."
"Ok, is there anything I can do to help." I looked down at Lyla.
"Actually there is. Can you take me and my sister to the park?"
"Um, sure, you wanna go now?"
"If you can?"
"Sure, I’ll be there in about 20 minutes."
"Alright. Thank you Jake."
"No problem. I love you."
"I love you too. bye." Then he hung up.
