A Dark Moon

So here I stand. In the arms of my mortal enemy. But I can't seem to move away. I hear my brother scream for me to leave, to run. Yet as he tilts his head towards me, I can't seem to want to move. And as his lips touch mine, I feel complete. Luna, adopted daughter of Edward and Bella Cullen, faces the battle inside herself which Bella had to when she was human.

I laid there thinking. Nothing made sense anymore, nothing. I love Seth, I truly do, but was it fair to put my family through all of this? I was hurting myself in not pursuing my relationship with Seth, but my family means so much more. I just want Seth and my family to be happy, as well. Jasper understood me. At least I knew I had one person on my side. I needed to see who else was with me, who else would stick by me.

I finally stood up. I stretched out, an old human habit of mine that I had yet to break. I took in a deep breath and started to run. I quickly ran towards our house, determined to find out where I stood. I opened the door and quietly, walked up the stairs.

First stop, my mother. I sighed as I knocked on the door, "Come in, Luna," her sweet little voice sang. I opened the door and smiled faintly. She smiled back at me and then looked back to her painting, waiting for me to begin.

"Mom, do you think it’s wrong that I love Seth?" I asked, nervously.

As soon as I asked that, she dropped her paintbrush on the floor, splattering paint on the floor. She didn’t bother to get it back, she simply looked at me. She wrinkled her face before smiling at me, "Luna if you love him, who am I to stand in your way?" she asked. I grinned and ran to her. She opener her arms as she enveloped me into a hug.

“I love you,” I said, nuzzled in her hair.

She chuckled, “I love you too, darling.”

I kissed her on the cheek as I ran back out. Two down, seven to go, I thought.

I already had in mind who I was going to ask next. Esme. She was the sweetest and most friendly member of the Cullen family and I already knew her answer, even before I asked her. I walked out to her garden. Esme was bent over, watering a few of her rosebushes. I cleared my throat, "Hi Esme.”

Esme looked up at me, “Hello, Luna, dear,” she asked in the sweet tone of her’s.

I looked at the floor, “Esme, do you think it’s right that I love Seth Clearwater?”

She just smiled up at me. "Of course it’s right, sweetie! If you love him, then you love him. There’s nothing you can do, dear, you simply can't fight love." I laughed a little.

"Thanks Esme, that was very nice," I said and Esme kissed me on both cheeks.

“It doesn’t matter what anyone says, Luna. All that matters is what you feel.” I nodded my head and continued onto the rest of my family.

The rest of my family all gave me their opinions and each of them accepted mine. When I told Emmett, he seemed excited, talking about werewolf wars. Rosalie laughed at me and told me that I was like my mother. Alice didn’t say much, she just told me to follow my heart and Jasper, well, he told me to go ahead. Carlisle, being Carlisle, said the same things that Esme told me, though he warned me it might case a stir.

Now only two remained, Dad and Kalel. I was scared helpless of asking them because I knew they would have problems understanding me.

I knocked on Kalel's door, but didn’t bother to wait for an answer. I walked in and sat on his bed. I never had boundaries when it came to him, he was my brother, after all. When he saw me, he huffed and turned away form me. I pursed my lips, "How mad are you?"

He rolled his eyes, "Luna how stupid can you be?" he asked, not even bothering to answer my question.

I bit back a snarl. I absolutely hated him when he acted protective. I retaliated, "Well, I don’t think falling in love is reason enough to call someone stupid." Upon hearing this, he got and looked me straight in the eyes as he snarled at me.

"Love?” he laughed sarcastically, “You love him?!" he seethed. I winced at his disgusted tone, "You can't love a dog, Luna, you just can’t and I won't allow it. You aren’t in love with him. Al you want to do is rebel against all of us. That’s all it is, nothing more."

I sighed, sometimes he was so thickheaded! I looked at him, "Kalel, I don’t think I need your permission to love him, or anybody else for that matter. I just want you to accept my decisions. Mom, Esme, Carlisle, Rose, Emmett, Jasper, and Alice accepted it! Why can’t you? "

He looked at me, “I’ll accept it when Dad does as well. Other than that, don’t look at me., I don’t want to see you right now.”

I stared at him in disbelief. I took off running. I flew down the stairs and out the door.

I kept running until I came to the boundary line. I paced it, praying a wolf would come soon to tell Seth I was here.

I was so caught up in my thoughts that I didn’t notice Sam Uley standing in front of me. He smiled at me cautiously and leaned forward, "You don’t smell to me either. That is odd,” I looked at him then at the boundary line and then back at him. He nodded, "You can come through, but only you. I won’t let any other leeches pass."

I nodded and stepped over the line, then I took off running to find Seth. I had no idea what to do now. I figured that I would find out that when I was forced to choose.
