“You feelin' blue now

I think you bit off more

than you could chew

And now it's time to make a choice

And all I wanna hear is your...

So follow the leader down

And swallow your pride and drown

When there's no place left to go

Maybe that's when you will know”

The paper fell open, the elegant scrawls across the page open to the worlds prying eyes. My own eyes were squeezed closed, not wanting to see my fathers face. I knew what I would see; the sheer anger in his tone told me that.

“Bella Marie Black. I am going to assume that you would rather not be apart of this family.” I looked up into my fathers eyes. There was a cold indifference there that hurt more then the rage in his tone. Jake sat there confused.

“Jake, I want you to go get Sam and the rest of the pack.” Jake opened his mouth to protest. “Don’t argue with me, boy.”

Jake silently got up and left the room. His footsteps were leaving silent echoes within the kitchen as the door was slammed behind him. Billy picked up the paper, reading it before he crushed it within his worn fist. His hands were balled so tightly that his knuckles were turning white under his russet skin.

“I told you not to see this leach. I told you to ignore them. They are the reason you’re brother is a werewolf, and the reason you are scarred!” Billy’s tone rose in pitch as he continued. “You know how this family works, you know about this tribe and the pack, and yet you still go behind my back to see some boy and spend the night with him.”

“Dad, uh... I… I think I might love him.” Tears were starting to rise in my eyes. My body was drained of all emotions except despair and hopelessness.

“You love him. You are 17 god damn it. You don’t know what love is. And what is this spending the night with him. What did you do with that leach? Are you not only a traitor to your people but a harlot to monsters?”

The tears I was holding back broke loose. I just stared at my father. “You don’t understand.” I cried as I ran out of the room.

I hit open the door and jumped of the porch. I tripped on the gravel, scraping my palms with red marks; blood was dripping out of my knee and down my leg. I ignored the pain and just picked myself up. I kept running even though the sky was dark and I couldn’t see anything besides that which the moon light illuminated. I ran into the woods, letting the twigs cut my skin as I ran though. I tripped over rocks until my legs were covered in bruises, but I didn’t stop. I finally gave up; my breath came in hallow gasps as I fell to the forest floor. I kept crying trying to feel something. I didn’t want my father to be right. Was I really betraying my family and my people? Was I going against Jake, my brother, and my new friend Emily and the rest of the pack just because I happened to love Edward?

I buried my head in my hands. My shoulders heaved with strangled sobs as tears ran down my cheeks, mixing with the blood and cuts. I screamed out in frustration and agony, challenging the rain to fall so that I could say nothing could make my day worse.

Alice’s POV

Jasper was sitting in the chair in the corner of our room. He was scoffing the latest civil war history book. My southern gentleman was not at all happy with the way Northerners depicted him and his fellow soldiers.

I had finished painting my nails a new pink color called absolutely no regrets. The polish was dry and I was sitting by myself on the bed. I had better plans for Jasper then reading a boring old book. I got up and gave a big dramatic sigh. I sauntered over to where he sat, running my hand up his arm and leaning my head on his shoulder.

“Jazzy, do you really have to read that right now? I have a better game for us to play.”

Jasper looked up from his book; he had obviously felt the love and need that I was giving off right now. The predatorial smirk of his that I loved started to claim his features. Jasper tossed the book aside before pulling me into his lap and kissing me deeply. I shifted myself so that I was straddling him, my hands against his chest as he pulled me recklessly close.

Being with Jasper was one of those things that made my life worth living. I couldn’t imagine my world without him. I was starting to feel his hands wander up the hem of my shirt when I felt the black pull coming over me. Jasper felt the sudden shift in my emotion also. He hurriedly rushed me to the bed and laid me down before I was consumed by the vision.

Bella was crying, her skin was bloody and bruised. She seemed lost and even scared, but the fear was not of being lost.

We both heard the feral growl from down the hall. Edward had obviously seen my vision also and was going to go after her. I sprang off my bed and rang into the hall just as Edward had his hand on the door, yanking it open.

“Edward, you can’t go to her. She is on la push territory. You will be breaking the treaty.”

“Damn the fucking treaty, Alice.”

My eyes turned black, I was not someone you wanted to anger.

Rosalie heard us in the next room and decided to add her two cents to the pot.

“I hope you know the danger you are putting this family in, a war with a pack of werewolves.”

“Don’t worry, Rose. My actions won’t harm you.”

Edward gave me one last glare before running out of the house to Bella and most likely his death.

The squeals of the Volvo ripping out of the driveway disturbed the quiet night. I cursed under my breath and ran down the hall, yelling for Carlisle.

JAKE’S POV

I had given up on listening to my dad. I was barely outside on the porch when I heard him yelling at her. I had known she was still seeing Edward. My sister if she was one thing, she was stubborn. I couldn’t believe he called her a harlot. My new hearing abilities, let me hear everything that was going on inside. I heard her when she started crying and run out onto the porch.

I sighed; I knew that Billy was more upset that she was sneaking around with a guy, rather then the guy being a vampire. I knew my dad, better then he knew himself sometimes. Billy hadn’t been able to keep Bella when Renee left; he couldn’t protect her then, so he was trying to protect her now. I would have laughed if the situation wasn’t so dire.

I didn’t bother looking for the pack. I morphed quickly. Luckily Embry was the only other one in my head. He was more understanding then Sam would have been.

Embry watched as I quickly replayed the last 10 minutes of my life in my head.

Shit Embry thought, I’m glad that I don’t have siblingsI’m going to go and look for her, if I know Bella she is in the woods someplaceRight, I’ll run over and join you

Embry was over at our house in last time then was possible driving, together we followed Bella’s scent into the woods, searching for her. We both noticed the bloody rocks on the way.

She is too klutzy for her own good I thought.

At least it makes the trail easier Embry replied try to help me from worrying.

We were almost to Bella. Her trail was starting to smell fresher. That’s when we smelled the sickly sweet stench.

There was a vampire on La Push Territory.
