"It's just snowing a little."
"A little is too much for you to go out in shorts and skirts. You can't keep wearing the same clothes."
Jillian groaned, "I won't go out then." She countered
Paul growled, "No. I won't let you stay cooped up in the house all winter."
"I don't even like the cold. I'd rather stay inside anyways."
Sam laughed, "We don't like the cold either but we don't want to take you on dates to the couch."
"Yeah. I haven't had my date with you yet. I was thinking about taking you out to the movies soon…" Embry added in grinning
She was so frustrated. They wanted to take her to get winter clothes but she didn't want to take their charity. She didn't need them to take care of her, she was looking for a job and as soon as she found one and got paid she would buy her own clothes.
Paul tried to hug her but she shrugged off his affection feeling too frustrated, "Winter clothes can wait until after I get paid from whatever job I find."
Jared groaned, "Just let us get you something warm to wear and then you can pay us back if you really want to."
She thought about it trying to see if they were pulling a fast one on her, "Can I pay you back?" she whispered
Jared nodded and gave her a warm smile, "You need warmer clothes right now. It can't wait."
"We don't want you getting sick," Sam told her his voice full of concern
"Fine, but I get to pay you back for everything as soon as I have the money to do so."
Paul grinned, "Agreed. Now, who do you want to take with you?"
"Yeah. Who do you want to pick out all your girly things with?" Jared prodded, "I would love to pick out your panties."
"Or maybe none at all." Embry laughed
Her face went red, "You are such a perv, Embry."
"Just wait babycakes." He wiggled his eyebrows and gave her a flirty smile
"Wait for what?" Paul howled, "Your tiny dick…"
"Sam, can you take me? They're being weird."
Sam laughed and nodded, "Alright sweetheart, let's go."
Jillian stuck her tongue out at the others and they laughed harder.
"Wrong choice Jilly. If anyone of us is weird or freaky its Sam." Jared teased
Paul winked, "We should know. We spend every day inside his head."
"You should have heard him last night." Emery chuckled, "He was imagining you with pigtails…"
Sam growled and the others began to laugh louder than before, "Shut it. Paul go patrol, Jared clean up the house and Embry go visit your mom before she calls the cops."
The grumbled and gave her a peck on the cheek on their way out.
"Jillian, I'm taking you out tonight make sure to wear something warm," Embry told her before squeezing her tight and jogging off into the woods.
Sam gave her a goofy grin and took her hand, "Let's go shopping babe."
She nodded and let him lead her out of the house, "Where are we going?"
"We're leaving the area because of the leaches but first we'll stop at Luxe's to get you a good heavy jacket and some boots. After that, we're leaving Forks. I don't like to spend too much time up there because of those leaches."
A shiver of fear ran down her spine as she thought of the beautiful men and women living Forks, "Alright let's go, and on the way, you can tell me about the pigtails."
His eyes went wide and a light blush peppered his cheeks.
They hopped in his truck and made their way off the reservation. When they reached the treaty line Sam gripped the wheel tighter and chattered away trying to distract her and himself.
He groaned, "It was nothing. They were just being assholes."
A giggle escaped, "Really, because you looked a little embarrassed."
"Ughh. Yeah, I kinda had a naughty fantasy of you dressed up as a schoolgirl with the pigtails. It was nothing. You should hear what Embry and Paul are thinking. They're the real pervs." He accused
She let go and laughed, "I used to wear pigtails when I was in middle school, I mean I can definitely wear it again sometime." She teased
"We wouldn't leave the house babe. So be careful."
"I'm counting on it." her eyes glimmered mischievously
She watched as a blush spread over his cheeks again, "Come on let's get you a jacket and then head out."
He walked around the car and helped her down before hooking his arm with hers and leading her inside.
She didn't want to admit it but it was very cold, goosebumps raised as soon as the blowing wind hit her and she was shivering almost instantly. She huddled closer to Sam and basked in the warmth his body gave off.
"Cold?" he asked with a raised brow
"Nope. I think it's very warm actually."
He snorted and pulled them along faster.
Jillian was relieved when she entered the warm store. Sam pulled them off into the direction of the jackets and boots and started just pulling things off the rack before finally handing her one very large very poofy jacket.
"Try this on,"
"Sam, I'm not going to be out in a blizzard."
He shrugged, "Better safe than sorry. Try it on."
She did as she was told and the jacket was actually very warm and comfortable when she zipped it up, "How do I look?" she cocked her hip and did a little spin
"Beautiful as always." He told her kissing her forehead, "Now boots."
They spent a long time trying to find her a good pair of boots because Sam had no idea what he was doing and left her to fend for herself.
Eventually, she found a pair that wasn't too big but would still keep her toes warm.
"Alright. We can go now," she told him holding her jacket and boots
Sam was staring off toward the front of the store frozen stiff, "We need to hurry. Now."
He pulled her along and stood tall and on guard as they were checked out by an elderly little lady. Sam threw the money on the counter and then practically dragged her from the store and out to the truck.
She was concerned and a little nervous now, "What's going on Sam?"
"Just hurry. Get in the truck."
He raced around to the other side and hopped in but his eyes were locked on the front of the store as a growl ripped its way from his throat.
Jillian tried to follow his gaze and landed on two pale men standing at the door, they gave him a small smile and waved, "Let's go Sam."
He nodded and took off out of the parking lot.
"Were those… were those vampires?" she asked in a whisper
He nodded, "Two of the Cullens. I was hoping not to run into them. Now my wolf feels so on edge."
"They're gone now, let's just go home."
He shook his head, "No. We'll finish our shopping and then head home. Embry has somewhere he wants to take you and you need warmer clothes."
"Alright, but only if you think it's a good idea."
"We will be fine. We're leaving Forks and we'll get you new clothes before we head home."
They rode in silence for the remainder of the ride and stopped at three stores to gather better winter clothes. Sam also took the liberty of buying her new panties and bras because he wanted to see her in them despite her protests.
They drove back to the reservation laughing and feeling more relaxed after their time together. They talked about work and how Sam wanted to open a garage with Paul and Embry but they were waiting for someone first.
"Who are you waiting for?"
"Billy's son? Why?"
"He's supposed to be the packs alpha. It's in his blood. When he shifts he will take over and lead the pack."
"Wait. How old is Jacob?"
"He's just a kid. Is he ready for all that responsibility?"
Sam laughed, "We grow up quick."
"What do you mean?"
"Well, we grow up really fast right before we shift for the first time. Like we do all the growing up we have left to do over a week or so and then just explode into our wolves."
"Grow up all at once…"
He laughed now and held her hand as he drove, "How old do you think I am?"
She squinted at him and guessed, "Thirty?"
"Nope, I'm actually twenty."
Her jaw dropped, "You look so much older. So mature."
"I may seem older because I was the first one to shift. I've been on my own a long time because of it and it was stressful…"
She squeezed his hand, "You won't be alone again." she turned in her seat quickly and gave Sam a horrified look, "How old is Paul?"
Sam was smirking now, he found her panic absolutely amusing.
Jillian took a deep breath, "Oh, god. How old is Embry?"
"Oh god. How much younger?"
He didn't answer.
He gave her a little smile, "He's seventeen."
She slapped his arm, "He's younger than I am?" she felt panicked, "I'm going to jail. I'm attracted to a minor." Her head fell into her hand
Sam's booming laugh filled the cabin of the truck and she looked up to glare at him.
"Babe. Embry is grown enough to pass for a twenty-five-year-old man."
She pointed to her head, "Not up here he isn't. He's a minor. I can't touch a minor. I can't date a minor…." She groaned again her head starting to hurt
Sam rubbed her back, "Jilly. Talk to him and see where he's at. I can promise you that he isn't a kid and it's not wrong that you're attracted to him."
She frowned but nodded, "I'll talk to him… What about Jacob?"
"He's seventeen too."
"No what about Jacob taking over the pack…"
He shrugged, "That's up to Jacob. He could make me the second or he could just take over and leave me a member at a lower rank."
"Does that bother you?"
"No. It would actually be nice."
They pulled in front of the house and saw Paul standing stiff.
Sam jumped out of the truck and made his way over to the passenger door before replying, "What is it, Paul?"
"The leaches want to see us. Tonight."
He nodded and grabbed her bags from the bed of the truck, "When?"
"Alright, Embry will stay with Jillian and you and Jared will come with me."
Paul nodded before giving her a smile and swinging her up in a tight bear hug, "Missed you, babe."
She hugged him back, "I missed you too." She turned to look back at Sam, "What's happening?"
"We're meeting with the leaches tonight. You'll stay with Embry. He'll protect you while we're away."
Her heartbeat a mile a minute, "Will everything be okay?"
Paul smirked, "They can't take us. We'll kick their asses into the grave."
Sam nodded and lead the way into the house. The house Jared was supposed to clean, but didn't.
There was a loud thump coming from the kitchen and they found Jared eating a large sandwich and a large mess he made because of it.
"God damn it, Jared."
She couldn't help it she laughed, "I got it Sam." She walked over to Jared and pinched his arm, "Finish your sandwich and then you are going to help me clean this up."
"Jes, ma'am," he told her through a mouthful of food
"Alright Sam, you go prepare for the meeting tonight and I'll make Jared clean up with me."
He nodded, "Don't let him sidetrack you. He'll definitely try."
"Don't worry about me. Worry about him."
Jared scarfed down his food and then Jillian made him clean.
"Do we really have to do this?" he groaned
"Yeah, we do, because you have been practically living here and you always leave everything a mess. So hop to it."
Jillian made him clean for hours. They started with the kitchen where he groaned and complained and moved slower than a snail but eventually he got that he wasn't getting out of it.
Three hours later the house was clean and Jared was complaining that his nose was itching, "It's the bleach we were using. It's too strong for my sensitive nose."
She plopped down on his lap, "Oh you poor poor baby."
Without warning, he turned her to straddle his lap and kissed her roughly, "You and your cleaning hurt me." He whined pitifully
She kissed the tip of his nose, "Aww. How can I help make up for it?"
"Well I know one way you can help make up for it." he slipped his hand up her hip and under her shirt where he ran his hand up her back to unclip her bra.
"Not here Jared. Anyone could walk in."
His husky voice sent shivers through her body, "The only people that will come through that door are Sam, Paul, and Embry."
He kissed down her neck and nibbled on her chest. He slipped her shirt over her head and pulled back to admire her beautiful curves, "God you are fucking beautiful."
She cupped her breasts, "Are you just gonna stare?"
He took her challenge and started to touch her and massage her. Loving her body as much as he could. He rolled her left nipple between his fingers and suckled on the right. He moved with a sure grace that turned her on further.
She ground against the hardness in his pants and worked for her own pleasure as he lavished attention on her body.
She was so close to cumming when he slipped a hand under her long skirt and tweaked her clit just right and sent her screaming over the edge of her orgasm.
He placed sweet kisses all along her jaw before freeing himself from his shorts and lining up with her entrance. She moaned and pushed down until his cock was seated inside her.
He stretched her so good she was grinding uncontrollably against him working for her second orgasm as he pumped in and out of her body.
"God, you are so fucking tight, Jilly."
She kissed him and rode him harder grinding her hips against his pelvis as he kissed and suckled on her nipples.
When his movements became erratic, she moved faster and let one of her hands drop between their bodies to rub her clit until she came apart screaming as he gripped her hips hard enough to leave marks and came inside her warm body.
"You're always so amazing."
He gave her a goofy grin, "I know." He pulled from her body and hugged her close, "We should clean up before they all come home."
He didn't answer just scooped her up and ran with her to the shower, he warmed it up and they spent an hour in the shower goofing around. The water was running cold when there was a loud knock at the door.
"Jared?" Embry called out
"Yeah?" he yelled back as Jillian tried her best to stifle a giggle
"Sam needs us for the meeting. He says to get out and make sure Jilly dries off before you meet him in the yard."
She burst out laughing and Jared glared
"What about me?"
"Who cares, you won't get sick, she will."
He grumbled but agreed and turned the water off.
"You heard the man. Gotta dry you off before I leave." He had an evil grin as he held the towel up, with eyebrows raised
He rushed her and hugged her with the towel between them. He ran it up and down her sides tickling her as he went.
"Jared! Stop. I can't breathe!" she wheezed but he wouldn't let up until she was dry.
When they walked out wrapped in towels Paul and Embry were waiting for them with smiles.
"Come on Jared, we're late."
He groaned, "I can't put on shorts?"
"Fuck that. Sam is already on edge." He pulled Jared out of the house the towel dropping as soon as the door closed
Embry let his eyes rest on Jillian still standing in her towel, "Is that all you're wearing to our date? You might get cold."
She sighed, "Listen, Embry, I don't know if we should go on a date.."
He frowned, "Why?"
"You're young. I don't want to take advantage of you. Or make things weird."
He looked confused, "Take advantage of me? How?"
She gripped her towel tighter, "You're only seventeen… I'm nineteen and I don't want to take advantage of you. You're a minor."
Embry burst out laughing and pulled her into a bear hug, "That's cute. You couldn't take advantage of me if you tried babe."
"You're still a minor."
He leaned down to whisper in her ear, "The age of consent in Washington is sixteen."
A blush seemed to cover her head to toe.
"Still got a problem with our date?"
She shook her head.
"Are you gonna change?"
She nodded and ran off to the bedroom before he could snatch her up in a hug again. Locking the door she let out the breathe she had been holding.
"Don't take too long!" he laughed.
