“Jacob Black?” I asked, the name falling from my mouth before I even thought of it.
One of the wolves straightened from his predatory crouch. He looked at me with familiar eyes. The other wolves didn’t relax from their positions, but looked at me with recognition.
The large black one shook his head, and ran into the woods to resume his human form. The others stayed, glaring at us with their large eyes.
“What’s going on?” Felix muttered.
“The black one wants to talk to us. He’s the leader of the pack,” I hissed back. Jane looked at me raised eyes.
“You act like you know them all,” she commented.
“I did when I was human,” I admitted. She nodded absently, thinking about any other ways I could be useful in this situation.
“I want you to talk to them for us, since you already knew them,” she finally said in a hard voice that made me immediately nod my head in respect.
Sam Uley walked back over. I now could recognize him as the man that found me right after he left me.
“What are you doing here?” he asked in a hard voice.
“We’re looking for someone. Maybe you’ve come across her?” I asked in a light, polite tone. When it came down to it, they had more right to be here than we did. We would have to tread lightly.
“It would depend on who you’re looking for,” Sam replied in a calm voice, though his arms were shaking. He was obviously having trouble staying in his human form. I tried to calm him down by speaking calmly, and not bringing up my human past.
“We’re looking for a female vampire with red hair. Her name is Victoria. She broke the law, and we have to take her,” I informed him in a monotone voice. Beside me, Jane looked more intently at all of them to see if they were going to lie. I could tell she really wanted to use her talents on them.
“We have seen her wandering the woods here. She went to your old house many times. We assumed she was looking for you,” Sam said in the irritating tranquil voice. It was so fake and forced that it annoyed me half to death—metaphorically.
“Does she have any fresh trails around here that we could follow? Or any place that she goes through repeatedly?” Jane asked, her voice intense and impatient. She clearly was starting to get on the edge as much as I was.
He shook his head. “She always uses new paths and trails every time she comes through here. She seems to have a gift for staying under wraps.”
I wrinkled my nose. This was getting us nowhere. “Well, maybe we can work together to bring her down. We will be in the area until she is no longer a threat to anyone. We expect you to allow us to travel in this area,” I told them in a stony voice, just like Heidi had taught me.
Now Sam looked outraged. He began to shake violently. “You can’t expect us to do anything for you. This is our territory!”
I raised my eyes. “May I remind you that I was born in Forks as well? Or that I have lived here too? I have every right to come back to my home and try to protect it.”
“Just no killing humans in this area. Or we will get rid of you,” he had slipped into a plural, reminding us of the rest of the pack.
I looked at Jane to respond. I couldn’t call any shots here, since I didn’t hunt humans.
She glared at the tall man in obvious loathing, but nodded. “Fine. While we are here, we will commit to Bella’s diet.” She didn’t sound excited at all. More like she was agreeing to do something tortuous and disgusting.
He looked at me. “What is your diet?”
I looked him right in the eyes. “The same as the vampires you struck a treaty with. I’ve never killed a human, and I intend to keep it that way.”
Sam now looked at me with as much respect as he could for one of my kind. “Isn’t it difficult for someone as young as you to commit to that?”
I nodded seriously. “Yes, especially when all those around me follow the other way of living among our kind.”
“Fine then. Just don’t do anything that will make us hunt you down,” he warned, before slipping back into the trees with the other wolves.
The russet one stayed back for a moment, looking at me with sad eyes. I knew that he was disheartened by the fact that I was now dead.
I smiled at him softly, and whispered “See you later Jacob.” I said it with the same feeling I had last time I spoke it to him. Honestly and truthfully.
With a bob of his head, he also disappeared into the trees.
