Finally the plane landed in Seattle. The first thing I had to do was hunt, it had been almost two weeks since I had last hunted. I headed toward the mountains.

* * * * * * * * * * * *

After I was done hunting, I went to my house. I had not been there in six months. I had to change and clean up.

As I walked into the house, I looked around. It was exactly the same. Esme had insisted on leaving to furniture behind. She said that it went with the house and would look silly anywhere else. I walked through all of the rooms, feeling the familiarity of the house. I felt safe here. For some reason, this house was more than just another house, it was a home. It was the only place that we had lived that felt like that for me. I could guess what caused those feelings. I gave a sigh and finally headed upstairs to take a shower.

I was still really anxious after I had cleaned up. I went to my room and put on a CD that calmed my nerves. It was Friday. I checked the clock and it said it was 2:47 pm. I couldn’t just sit here, I had to see Bella.

I left my house and ran to the school. While I was still in the forest, I saw her truck in the parking lot. It was sixth hour, so she would be in English.

Still under the cover of the forest, I crept to the building used for English classes. I looked around to make sure I was alone, and climbed up to the window.

There she was, sitting in the same seat as the beginning of the year. The seat next to her, where I used to sit, was empty. No one had filled the space. I could guess why.

Bella looked even more fragile than she had before. Her face looked sad and her eyes were filled with agony. She didn’t seem to be paying attention to the teacher, and shoulders were slumped over.

What had I done to her? She looked like she was in so much pain. Her skin was paler than its usual pale. I was the worst creature in the world. She was in much pain as I had been, maybe more.

Now, my whole reason for leaving seemed pointless. All I accomplished was putting me, and someone I loved in pain.

While I was internally kicking myself for doing something so stupid, my phone rang. Everyone looked up to the window, but I had already ducked into the shelter of the forest.

“Damn it!” I said as I answered my phone, “What?” I asked, my voice sharp.

“Hey, what’s up with you?” The familiar voice asked.

Emmett. Alice had told them. She was never one for secrets.

“Nothing, I was just doing something and you interrupted me,” I said, frustrated.

“Oh, like spying on Bella?” he asked, “Alice saw you doing that.”

“And I nearly got caught when you called,” I growled at him.

“Settle down, why are you so angry? You should be happy,” he said.

“Why the hell do you care?”

“I care because you broke the heart of the one girl who really truly loved you. I knew that you would regret it. So stop being so self-centered and fix your mistake!”

“That’s easier said than done, Emmett!” I was fuming now. I felt my eyes get darker, even though I had just hunted.

“Get over yourself! And if you don’t fix this, there will be hell to pay!” Then, the line went dead. Emmett was always very protective of Bella, but this wasn’t any of his business.

I snapped the phone shut, and just as I did, sixth hour was over. Everyone was headed to the parking lot, so I ran back through the forest to my house.
