Sam and I hoped in the backseat of the car next to Jared. As we were pulling out of the driveway, I noticed something.

“Where’s Jacob?” I asked, breaking the silence.

Jared shifted awkwardly in the seat next to me and Paul cleared his throat. “He said he would meet us there,” Embry answered for them.

“Is that all?” Sam asked.

Paul shook his head.

“Well?” I probed.

“He said,” Jared began next to me. “That he didn’t think he could last the whole ride with you two in a car with him.”

“Oh,” was all I could say.

“It’s all right, Bella.” Sam pulled me closer to his side. “He’ll be fine. You shouldn’t worry about Jake too much. He’s a big boy; he can take care of himself.”

I smiled nodded and said, “You’re right.” I still felt totally guilty, though. I mean, Jacob was my best friend, and I still wanted him to be. But, I guess that we can only be friends if I don’t have a boyfriend at the time. I know that he likes me and all, but I just… UGH!

“What’d you say?” Sam asked.

“Did I say something?” I asked, perplexed.

“Yeah, you said something about how you cannot be friends with a boyfriend. Something like that.”

“Did I really say all of that out loud?” Sam chuckled and shook his head.

When we pulled into one of the parking spaces at the laser tag place, Paul locked the doors in the car and turned around to face Sam and me.

“Okay,” he began, “here’s the rules. Just because you two are going out, it does not mean that you can work together and gang up on us. And, Jake is all ready really upset, so please just don’t start kissing.”

“I shall try to resist all temptations,” Sam said, raising his right had to salute Paul.

“Sounds fair enough,” I agreed.

Paul unlocked the doors and we all pilled out of the car. I started following them in, but Sam pulled me back quickly and threw me into his embrace. He tilted my head up and kissed my long and hard.

“Sorry,” he whispered against my lips. “I had to get more in before we walked in. I probably couldn’t last too long now without kissing you.”

Sam grabbed my hand and started pulling me towards the laser tag building. “Oh,” he said as if just remembering. “If I shoot you in there, please do not take it personally.”

“I think I’ll be the one shooting you,” I shot back, and then ran into the building with him behind.

I stopped once inside, because Jacob was standing there. “Hey, Jake,” I got out. “How are you?”

Jacob grunted in response. Well, I thought to myself, this is going to just be so much fun!

“Ha ha Sam! I shot you!” I was enjoying myself far more than I had thought imaginable.

“I’ll get you—Ah! Hey, Embry that is so not fair!” I saw the silhouette of Sam run in the opposite direction.

An eerie quietness took over and I backed up to the wall, trying to catch my breath. We had been in here for God knows how long. In the middle of our first game, I had remembered that Charlie did not know where I was, so I had to stop the game and call him. He seemed very happy with the fact that I was hanging out with the gang.

I gave up on this game without telling anyone. I slid down the wall so I was sitting.

“Bella,” Jacob’s husky voice said next to me.

I jumped. “Gee, Jake! You could have told me you were here! Don’t sneak up on me like that! You know how I am!”

“Sorry,” he whispered sadly.

“It’s all right, just do not do it again, please. I could have a heart attack next time.”

Jake laughed softly. “I just wanted to do something. Y’know, just really quickly while no one else is here.”

“Jake…” I trailed off as his lips hit mine. It took me a second to comprehend what was going on, but when I did I pushed away from him.

“Jake! Please,” I said, and then ran out the door and out of the building. I was hoping that I was running in the general direction of Charlie’s house, but there was no way of knowing for sure.

I didn’t want to stop, in case they came looking for me. I just kept running, not really caring when my legs started getting sore.

I soon found myself in some woods and started slowing down just a little to see if there was a path anywhere that I could follow. Of course, there was none. Just my luck, I thought.

I wandered aimlessly through the forest, and I kept looking for the path that would hopefully show up eventually.

That’s when I heard the cracking of the sticks behind me. I spun around quickly, but there was no one there. My heart rate started increasing and my breath became shallower.

“H-Hello?” I yelled through the trees.

There was no answer, but some one was around somewhere. For some reason I could sense it.

“Hello? Is anyone there?” I yelled more confidently through the forest.

There was no answer, but more cracks of sticks, closer this time. My heart felt like it was pumping too fast for its own good.

There was some rustling of leaves, and that’s when the thing popped out and ran over to me!

"Bella!" the girl squealed wrapping her tiny arms around me.

"Alice?" I aske, i felt like fainting.

"Bella! We're back!"

And that's when i did faint!
