The cool ear-piece rest against my right ear and I heard it ring only once and stopped signaling someone picked up. “Hello,” it was Terra, her beautiful now melancholy voice echoing through the phone. “Hello,” I hadn’t realized that I was just sitting there instead of answering her call.

“Yeah, Terra it’s me.” I said rushed hoping she hadn’t hung up already.

“Quil where have you been? I went to the woods and you weren’t there and you weren’t at your house either. I’ve been worried that someone had just snatched you up or something.” I didn’t want to admit that that was mostly true.

“Sorry, I’ve just been…out for…how long have I been gone Terra?” I had guessed it was about a day but I wasn’t sure of the date everything had happened on anymore.

“Two days,” her held clear concern, “is everything alright?”

“Yeah.” I wanted that to sound confident but my voice cracked a little giving me away.

“Quil you don’t sound alright.” she let out a sigh that barely made any sound, “I’m coming over Quil?”

“Why?” I wanted to be with her but I knew that I had no control over my other half. If there was an off chance I got angry with her it would be too late.

“Why,” she sounded confused at my response, “Quil I’m worried but if you don’t want me to come I suppose I’ll just leave.” it was all a whisper but I was a little puzzled; ’leave’ was she already here? I was silent for a long moment not sure what to say and if I should or shouldn’t allow Terra to be near me. “I guess I’ll just go. Bye Quil.” her dismissive voice made me panic for it sounded like a final goodbye, one where she left for good.

“Wait Terra,” I said but only to hear a mechanical voice telling me to hang up and dial again. Stupid, stupid, STUPID. You idiot you let her slip right through your fingers. This is all your fault! Anger filled me and I threw the phone against the wall, shattering it making the plastic fly everywhere. Pushing myself off the bed I breathed deeply trying to somewhat gain control over my emotions. My feet banged hard along the stairs while I burst down them, edging for the door. I wouldn’t loose Terra I told myself over and over, even though I knew that this was all my fault.

Stopping by the forests edge I let my sense of smell take over me, taking in all the scents wafting me way. A tangy, bittersweet scent hit me hard from deep within the confines of the trees and I took off in the direction. My legs were moving quick, and agilely through the pines and undergrowth as I weaved through them. Bending my torso forward I felt a strong tare down my spine and two large paws were pounding along the earth where my hands once were.

Suddenly there were voices all talking to each other some saying my name; I told them to shut up and they did in recognition. But soon enough they began speaking to me directly, asking me where I was, some yelling at me for leaving. My head threw back in pain as I begged them to go away, for them all to silence and leave me alone. I stopped in mid-sprint and began to bang my large head into one of the near by trees but the voices remained, never quieting but increasing in volume. Why don’t you just leave me alone!

Because we are trying to talk some sense into you.” it was Sam, who some how was clearly speaking to me inside my thoughts.

“How can I hear you?” I felt like an idiot for talking to myself, even in my own thoughts.

“Because we can communicate through thoughts while in our wolf forms. You would know that if you stayed and let us explain everything.”

“Why should I trust you? It’s only because of you that I’m like this!”

“We understand that you might be mad but we need you to understand that with or without us you would still have changed, that this is what we all are for the rest of our lives; a pack, a family.”

“None of you are my family!” I tuned out the rest of their reasoning’s as I could but there was always a hum in the back of my mind as I continued to follow Terra’s fading scent. I found myself crossing through the clearing and heading toward the beach. Except for the orange colored sky the scene before me gave me an enormous feeling of déjà vu. There by the waters edge stood Terra, back to me, like the first time we met. Her mahogany hair blew lightly sending her addicting aroma all around me. Stepping towards her I let out a small bark which was meant to be her name.

Her small figure turned slowly towards me, now concerned topaz eyes bore deep into my furry appearance. “Oh,…Quil.” was all that passed through her lips in recognition to what I had become. Whimpering a little a stepped forward and she did the same and motioned for me to go back into the cover of the tree’s. Once back in the maze of the woods she came close and put a cool hand on the side of my face, feeling the texture of my dark coat. “I don’t see you for a few days and look what you do to yourself.” a coy smile was set on her face. I grunted in response and she let out a small laugh but it faded quickly. “I’m sorry I didn’t tell you Quil. I knew all along this would happen, and the other day I lied about not knowing your destiny and I’m sorry for that too. I wanted so bad to believe it wouldn’t happen, that there might be some way we could be together like Edward and Bella.” I gave her a confused look as I could not bombard her with questions like I wanted too. I could tell Terra had a lot to say, and that this was going to be a long night.
