Ficlet | By early evening clouds had returned to Folks, pressing down greyness over its residents and those in the forest beyond the town. Edward had spent the rest of the day running. He still wouldn’t feed, but instead ran on empty in the hope that wearing himself down would switch off the images of Jacob Black, whose memory now seemed to live inside him. His clothes were torn and soiled, and only after several falls in the woods did he return to the house. He sensed Jacob’s presence right away. When he’d reached the doorstep Jacob left his cover of trees, looking around him with caution. “You needn’t worry,” Edward said, “no one’s home.” Jacob looked worn too, like he were being stretched in all directions. But that didn’t seem to dim his angered mood, merely agitate it. “Please, come in,” Edward said as kindly as he could, “I’ve something to say.” Although Jacob didn’t reply, he followed Edward into the house, staring him down with his best imitation of disinterest. Shame prevented Edward from eye contact, his body swaying slightly with exhaustion and under the weight of the words he needed so completely to express correctly. But Jacob began before Edward could. “Look,” he said, his voice broken and choked by emotion, which he cussed himself for, “you don’t need to say it,” turning his focus outside the house, “I get it, you don’t feel the same. And you needn’t worry about me telling Bella, I’m humiliated enough, so if that’s what you had to say, don’t bother I’ll just g—” “Stop,” Edward said, unsure how much longer he would be able to stay on his feet, but forcing himself to look at Jacob, and hating himself for his continued knack for hurting him. “You don’t understand Jacob.” “Then make me understand, tell me how that kiss in the truck was a mistake, pity. Tell me my best memory is your greatest regret.” “How about that it’s mine too? You say that I don’t care, and yet I could not imagine it possible for me to care more for someone. For anyone.” “What are you saying?” “I don’t have the strength to lie anymore, so this is the truth: the furthest reaches of love that a creature like me is capable of, you surpass it all.” Finding it difficult to remain standing, and not wanting to stumble in front of him, Edward said, “Please forgive me, and do whatever you think is right,” and left for his room. As he reached the stairs, the sound of steps followed him and although he had no pulse, he felt as if that sound might just be what his heart needed to skip into beat.

Notes | Finally beginning to be honest with each other — baby steps, of course — Edward has always tried to push aside his emotions and his needs for the needs of family, but just as it had been with Bella, what he feels for Jacob is just too strong, and it’s time he let him know. This entry was cross-posted to jakeward, twilight_slash, rpattz_taycob, twi_cwc and twilightmanips, which is why it is not friends locked.

Loved this! Love where this is going!!!

Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying the journey so far.

yeeyz XD I love it ^w^
Finally Edward gives into his emotions ;) Can't wait to see what happens next :P
chewableprose on October 24th, 2010 01:15 pm (UTC)
Thanks a lot. Indeed, Edward's taken the first step toward acceptance. Lots more to come, thanks for tuning in.

Gorgeous, gorgeous artwork!
chewableprose on October 24th, 2010 02:07 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much, lots more on the way.
wirrrn on October 24th, 2010 03:10 pm (UTC)

Awwww! Awesome. Looking forward to the next part/manip...
chewableprose on October 24th, 2010 11:21 pm (UTC)
Thanks :oD. the next part will be up soon.

Very Nice, love the atmosphere of it and how Jacob is all "look at me in the eyes" while Edward is at the same time all kind of "shameful"in front of Jacob and exhausted from pretending.

You can feel a real link between them in that one, Edward -for once- shows emotions and to me it appears it's actually the one you show someone you trust/love.

Great one, I think it's my favourite of you so fare because of your obivous dedicated work on it and also for the atmosphere you've been able to create there.

Can't wait to see the next one ;-)
chewableprose on October 24th, 2010 11:26 pm (UTC)
Wow, thanks Tom for the detailed feedback. I'm thrilled you like it so much, it makes it the time I put in so worthwhile. I'm starting to create the manips I had in mind when I began, so it's a good feeling, and I'm glad they seem to be working. Everything you read from the manip (from Jacob's determination to Edward's exhaustion was spot on what I was trying to convey). Here's hoping I'll create others that you like even more ;o). The next one will be up real soon :o).
tomboytoy on October 25th, 2010 07:57 am (UTC)
Woohooo!! Do I get points for a good analysis of the manip? ;-p

And you're welcome about the feedback. I always like to receive a detailed one so it's only fair I try to do the same ;-)
chewableprose on October 25th, 2010 10:53 am (UTC)
Hehe, you certainly do, major brownie points.
tomboytoy on October 25th, 2010 04:52 pm (UTC)
Woohoo!! \o/
This means that now I have a golden star for cookies and brownie points.
I really hope those wi'll be homemade :-p
chewableprose on October 28th, 2010 03:43 pm (UTC)
Of course they'll be homemade ;o).
starry_nights88 on October 24th, 2010 05:23 pm (UTC)
Jacob looks huge compared to Edward...it's kinda funny, but I liked the way the summary worked out. I can't wait to see how the story and manips progress further.
chewableprose on October 24th, 2010 11:28 pm (UTC)
Hehe, indeed, Jake certainly is a big boy (and I just love him for it, all that bulkiness). Glad you liked the summary and the direction in which the story is headed.
starry_nights88 on October 25th, 2010 01:58 am (UTC)
The manip turned out really well. Ripped shirt and everything, that was a nice touch. Makes all the difference~
chewableprose on October 25th, 2010 03:12 am (UTC)
So true, it's all about the little things. Thanks for noticing.
starry_nights88 on October 25th, 2010 03:35 am (UTC)
No problem. :)
madigirl210 on October 24th, 2010 10:33 pm (UTC)
Love it! So much emotion from both, just from the way they stand. Can't wait to see where the manips and story goes.
chewableprose on October 24th, 2010 11:32 pm (UTC)
Thanks heaps, this manip relies so much on emotion and body language to generate meaning, and I'm thrilled that came across. More soon.
olol123 on November 1st, 2010 06:00 pm (UTC)
I like that
chewableprose on November 1st, 2010 09:24 pm (UTC)
Thanks :)
marki_fungi on January 13th, 2013 03:22 am (UTC)
Very nice.

I like how this story is coming alone and as you say: "Baby steps." I like how you've set up this manip and you've managed to make Edward come across perfect, not to mention Jake's posture screams his desire to get the truth from Edwards.

Looking forwards to more.
chewableprose on January 13th, 2013 09:19 am (UTC)
Thank you. Their body language is so rich that I wanted to take advantage of that :).
