“W-werewolves.” Shock didn’t begin to explain how I felt right now. “I’m not a…I can’t be a…”

“You are, we all are.” He waved a large russet hand towards the others. “We didn’t want this either but we must do our duty in protecting our land.”

“Protecting it from what?” My teeth were clenched tight, body stiff preparing for the impact of their answer for I had a feeling I knew what the answer was.

“We protect the reservation from bloodsuckers, making sure they don’t try to take a snap at one of our friends or family.”

“Terra wouldn’t do that!” my fingers were shaking now.

“Calm down, you can’t get angry or you’ll change into your werewolf form.” I didn’t like that fact, now I would have to be even more careful with my anger or I would suffer what I apparently was.

“But Terra wouldn’t kill anyone. She told me herself that she wouldn’t, that she would feed off of animals instead like the Cullen’s.” One of Sam’s eyebrows lifted up in astonishment to my words.

“Even though she may be like the Cullen’s she still is dangerous. We can’t allow her in La Push, it’s against the treaty.”

“What treaty?” this was another complication I hadn’t thought of.

“The treaty that disallows vampires on the reservation and doesn’t allow us to harm them, if they don’t harm anyone first. So far the Cullen’s have been good to the treaty but this Terra could be different even if you say she is like them. If she were to try anything we have the right to kill her but even if she doesn’t she’s not allowed on our land.” so that’s why they did this to me, to keep us apart, to keep me away from Terra. Betrayed pretty much summed up all I was feeling right now. They deliberately provoked me to change into one of them and then they pull me away from my only friend. They couldn’t do this to me, I won’t let them. Standing up off the couch I had been laying on I strode over to the door. As my hand lifted for the handle Sam spoke up again, “Stop Quil,” his voice was demanding but that was one order I wouldn’t follow.

“Make me,” acid filled my tone and I stepped through the open door to the outside world. Someone had followed me out and oddly I could tell by his scent that it was Jacob. One of his large hands landed on my left shoulder stopping me in my tracks.

“Stop Quil,” he repeated Sam’s command. This time I didn’t respond, I just pulled away and kept walking. “Quil you can’t hang out with her, it’s too dangerous.” I snapped around to glare at him.

“Since when do you care if I’m in danger?” I said eyebrows raised in question.

“I care if that leech sucks you dry and I were to loose one of my friends.” this took me aback.

“Friends? Since when are we friends? Ever since you joined with Sam you’ve treated me like dirt.”

“I’m sorry Quil,” his eyes were on the ground and his voice was sorrowed, “ I couldn’t have told you about the pack, it’s against the treaty. Especially after Bella found out about us the guys have been ragging on me about it and I couldn’t slip up again. I wanted to be your friend but at the time I couldn’t.”

“You could have turned your back on them.” I said in a fierce but quiet voice.

“I couldn’t Quil, and now you can’t either.”

“Oh yeah, watch me.” I turned on my heal and stormed off. As each of my feet continually exceeded the other my breathes grew longer; calming myself down. My gut was leading towards Terra and her comforting purple eyes, but my reasonable side was telling me to avoid her, especially with what I now was; a monster.
