Chapter 11-Welcome to the Pack
The sound of the birds woke me up, I could hear them flying up above, flapping their wings and cooing their song.
I sluggishly opened up my eyes, and realized I wasn't home. I shot up with a start and fell out of the bed, landing hard on the wooden floor.
"Ow." I complained and dusted myself off. Something felt off and weird as I was brushing my skin. It was hot.
I placed my palm on my forehead; I was burning up. But I wasn’t feeling ill or anything of that sort, I felt perfectly healthy. I stood there pondering about that, I had forgotten about my worries of not recognizing the place I was.
It was then, I was still pondering about my body temperature, that someone walked into the room. I heard their feet brush against the wood and I turned around in a flash holding up my fists ready to fight.
I put them back down slowly when I noticed the person in front of me meant no harm. It was a woman, looking to be about forty years old, she has dark, long black hair. She looked very friendly and motherly, reminding me of Esme. One thing of her caught my eye the most, it was the scars on the right side of her face, they stretched down from her hairline to her chin. I looked away not trying to be impolite.
"Hello Anthony." She murmured softly after she noticed my arms were securely at my side.
I was taken aback, "how do you know my name?" I asked.
"Everyone here does." She said simply.
I looked at her questioningly, unable to move my lips.
She smiled warmly, "I’m Emily Ulley."
"Er...hello." I said stupidly.
She giggled and looked at me for a long while and for a second I saw her eyes water. She blinked rapidly, clearing her eyes. "I’m sorry." She apologized, "but you look so much like your father."
That caught my attention, "you knew my father?"
"Like a brother." She said thoughtfully.
I smiled at that, knowing anyone that knew my father like that couldn’t be harmful in anyway.
She sniffled, "follow me, Anthony, everyone is in the kitchen." She said, I felt scared, what did she mean by ‘everyone’? She sensed my worry, "I have food made." She added. "You must be hungry."
And to prove her statement right, my stomach growled loudly enough for both of us to hear. I chuckled embarrassed.
She just smiled and nodded her head, a signal for me to follow her.
I walked after her, into a narrow hallway lined with pictures on every side. I took in each picture, seeing a very large gathering of what looked like a picnic, a picture of humongous wolves and three humans beside it. I stopped in the middle of the hallway, looking at a picture that made me gasp and stop to look at it.
Emily noticed the picture that I was looking at and smiled thoughtfully at me.
I took in every aspect of the picture, the campfire out in the beach, the logs around it with people sitting on it, two of those people I knew: my mother and father. My mother had her head resting on my father’s shoulder, smiling brightly along with my father. My father. I sighed softly. He looked happy to be next to my mother, his smile was the biggest of all of the people. They looked so young, they all did, even Emily was in the picture. Someone else I recognized was there, Seth, John’s father.
"That picture was taken when your mother was nineteen your father was sixteen." Emily said.
"Who are all of these people here?" I asked.
"One of the first werewolves here at la Push and me." She said with a curious look at me.
One word stuck out on me, "werewolves?" I repeated it out loud. I looked at Emily as if she were crazy.
She just giggled turned around, back down the hallway to the kitchen.
I followed behind.
The closer I got to the end of the hallway the more I could hear laughter and chatting, I felt even more nervous with every step.
I walked in to the small kitchen where many people were chatting and eating happily. Everyone stopped what they were doing to stare at me, many were surprised looks, and others were inviting smiles.
"He looks so much like Jake." One of the older looking one’s said.
"He’s got Bells’ eye’s though." Another one, an older woman, said.
I stood in confusion, mostly because most of them knew my parents, and because I didn’t have my mother’s eyes. Hers were gold. Mine were brown.
"Um, hi." I said with a nervous chuckle.
"Oh I think we’ve scared him." One of them, the girl, said. "Don’t worry Anthony, they won’t bite...mostly." She said glaring at someone I knew, Seth. "I’m Leah," she introduced herself. "You must already know my brother Seth and his son John." She said pointing at them. I did know them but...what were they doing here?
What was I doing here? What the hell happened?
"That’s Emily’s husband, Sam," Leah continued, "Jared, Quil, Paul, Embry, Brady, Collin, and the kids. I’m not naming them all there’s too many, you’ll get to know them anyway." She said.
"You hungry, Anthony?" Seth said pointing at a plate of food Emily had placed on the table.
"Dylan, move." Sam said to, who seemed to be his son.
The boy named Dylan got up and moved over to the couch in front of the TV. I seemed to recognize Dylan, but I wasn’t too certain.
Sam told me to sit down on the empty chair, I listened and sat with the other three boys in the table.
"Hey, I’m Tyler, Embry’s son." One of the boys said.
"Harry." The other said.
"And I’m Kyle."
"Welcome to the pack." Paul said to me.
"The pack?" I asked, my mouth full of food. I gulped.
"We’ll explain to you later. Eat now. Training later." Jared said.
I stared at all of them confused.
