During this time, Kimi and Jacob got to know each other more but Jacob never revealed that he is a werewolf.

JACOB BLACK:

Sniff sniff. Ughh, what’s that smell? This dreadful smell brought back …memories. I shot up out of bed, shirtless lurching towards the doorway. I could recognize that foul smell anywhere. It was a leech. Here.

There were two smells, one that was familiar and the other unknown. I contemplated briefly whether I should change into a wolf or go in my human form. After a few minutes of thought, I decided to go as a human. It would be easier to communicate that way and either way, it would only take me a second to change.

I made my way quickly out the door, adrenaline pumping in my veins, sending spasms of shock, and anxiety into my heart. I knew that he was here. But the other scent… the one with him? Could it be….?

I couldn’t let these thoughts cloud my judgment. If…if…they posed any threat…I would have to…take care of it.

I ran through the forest, the scent burning my nose. When I made it through into the middle of the forest, I was greeted by two shadowy silhouettes. Him. He was leaning against a tree, arms crossed, his face contorted into an expressionless mask.

But it was the second figure, smaller and paler that shocked me through. I staggered back, the emotional pain almost unbearable. I turned my face, unable to look, unable to see….what she…what my Bella, had become.

My body started to quiver uncontrollably, my form threatening to break and catch itself into the creature that I was, fully capable of destruction. I couldn’t though…I would be a threat. Kimi. Just the thought of her was enough to calm me. I would never, ever hurt her.

I took in a ragged breath, calm enough to finally look up. I caught the leech’s eyes. He smirked in my direction. I clenched my teeth. He was doing it again, I knew it. He was in my head.

“Jake,” Bella uttered her stance indifferent, her voice more velvety than ever. I didn’t think it was possible…but she had grown even more beautiful…for a leech.

Edward pushed off from the tree, gliding over to where Bella stood, glancing peculiarly to my right.

“What are you doing here?!” I spoke through my clenched teeth.

“Calm down. We’re here to warn you about your pack back in La Push… they’re in trouble.”

“Trouble? What kind of trouble?” I was taken back by this. “Tell me what happened!” I demanded.

Bella made herself more visible, but she seemed distracted, glancing in the same direction that Edward was. “Nothing yet… But it will.” Her voice was a higher tone of pitch, that of a soprano.

“What’s going to happen?” I yelled.

“The Coven,” Edward spoke. “They are coming after the wolves.”

“What? Why? How? What did you bloodsuckers do?”

We did nothing,” Bella grimaced.

“Tanya’s Coven, in Alaska has their reasons for revenge towards the pack. The pack took out Laurent, and Irina, one of the Alaskan vampires, happened to be very close with him,” Edward broke in.

“When are they planning to attack?” I asked.

“A week at the most,” Edward answered, glancing again towards my right.

My face hardened as I pondered this new piece of information.

Snap.

I whipped my face around to where I heard the sound, on my right side.

“It appears we have a visitor,” Edward said slyly, smirking at me.

Bella just looked confused and very tense.

Kimi stepped out from behind the tree, looking rather ashamed.

KIMI WHITE

I was lying awake, staring at the ceiling, trying to count how many glow stars had accumulated there over the years, when I heard a faint noise coming from the living room.

I jumped up quickly and walked over to my door, pressing my ear against the cold wood, my whole body arched forward.

The gentle sound of the door closing startled me, as quiet though that it was. I decided to go check out what it was, my fingers closing around the wolf charm that hung from my neck.

When I made my way to the front door of my house I saw Jacob sprinting towards the forest.

Hmm…you know, curiosity killed the cat.Oh well.

With that, I ran after him and when we finally crossed into the woods, I tried to make my footsteps fall lighter, trying not to make him aware that I was there.

After a while, he stopped still as though recognizing something. He looked pained.

I turned my head, curious to see what he was looking at, and my breath caught in my throat.

I gazed at the two figures standing there. They were the most beautiful people I have ever saw in my life. The guy was just…too beautiful for mere words. The way his bronze fell over his eyes, his topaz eyes, was just irresistible. His eyes were such a gorgeous shade, so much more intriguing than Jacob’s black ones. Stop it.

The guy looked up and glanced briefly in my direction, smirking at Jacob. The timing of this movement, though small…made it seem as though, he knew…what I was thinking.

My gaze moved over to the girl, who was also glancing in my direction every once in a while. She looked like a…angel. She looked as though she belonged in one of those fashion magazines, her long dark brown hair trailed long, moving gently in the wind. Her eyes…were red, almost bloodshot. They must be contacts. I don’t know why she chose that shade though.

I tried to adjust my step, so I can hear better, when my I stepped on a twig.

Snap.

Uh-oh.

Jacob turned his head to look quickly in my direction.

“It appears we have a visitor,” Edward said slyly, smirking at Jacob.

I stepped out slowly, wishing solely for two things in this world. One for a giant hole to open up in the ground. Two, for that hole to be a black hole which sucks me into a whole new dimension.

“Who’s there?” Jacob yelled.

I had no choice but to let them see my presence. I made my way near Jacob’s side. Jacob looked stunned.

“Why are you here?” he demanded.

“I—I’m really sorry Jacob,” was all I could say.

“Why did you follow me?” he was still yelling.

“Jacob, I’m sorry… I just—I don’t know…I’m really sorry,” I cried.

The pale man spoke, “so Jacob, why don’t you introduce us to your new friend?”

Jacob looked very hesitant to speak. Why wasn’t he telling them?

“This is—uhh—Kimi,” he finally muttered.

“Nice to meet you Kimi,” the man smiled. I was amazed even more at his beauty. How does Jacob know him? He extended his hand outward for me to shake it, I was touched, but Jacob blocked my hand away. “Now, Jacob, that’s not very nice,” he said. Now I was really confused.

Jacob retorted, “Leave her alone. You have no business with her.”

Jacob turned to me. “Kimi, please go home, you really shouldn’t be here.”

His words struck me. What was going on? “Why can’t I be here with you?” I demanded.

“Kimi, it’s not safe,” he said gazing at the two pale people.

Not safe? These people didn’t even look much older than us. And Jake looked as though he was capable of taking them on, if they posed us any danger.

“So…dog, you haven’t told her yet?”

Dog??? These people really need to work on their slang.

Jacob just glared at him balefully, as though warning him.

“What is going on?” the beautiful girl finally said something, her eyes narrowed dangerously.

The boy looked at Jacob a while longer before turning to me.

“I’m Edward and this is my wife, Bella,” the gorgeous boy crooned, his velvety voice gliding on every syllable.

Jacob cringed beside me.

Wow. This was Bella? She was…beautiful. This was who Jacob was telling me about. I couldn’t believe this. So she was married…Jake never told me that. She barely looked eighteen, why would she be married?

Edward was still looking at me, smiling knowingly.

There was something about him that was unsettling.

Bella was looking at Jacob, her face masked.

“What haven’t you told me?” I finally asked Jacob.

“Kimi, I’ll explain everything. But please, now is not the time. Go back home.” He answered.

Bella shot her husband a look.

“I-I’m losing control, Edward,” she muttered.

Edward stopped smiling.

Jake turned quickly to me whispering fiercely, “We have to go. NOW!”

BELLA SWAN

We were waiting for Jacob to show up, to deliver our warning.

I didn’t know how I would feel when I saw my ex. best friend, but I made a firm decision not to let Edward know. I couldn’t hurt him.

After I was turned into a vampire, Edward and I made our way up north, so that I would not be putting anyone else in danger. To stay away from human blood…was very…difficult.

When Jacob showed up…I was happy, of course…but the way he smelled…was disgusting.

But there was another smell, that of a human, that was oh…so…luscious.

Throughout the conversation, I tried to maintain my composure. But every part of me was screaming to follow the smell and feed.

I don’t know why Edward wasn’t saying anything. He had to know that there was someone hidden there.

Finally, the person slipped up, and everyone, including Jacob was made aware of her presence.

The person stepped out from behind a tree, and I was surprised to see a young girl.

The way Jacob was acting toward her and looking at her made it obvious. This girl…was definitely someone close to him.

Edward was acting strange as well, his words seemingly taunting, as though he knew something…which, he probably did.

The smell became stronger as she came our way. I tried, oh I really did to resist. But there was a slight wind and it wafted her scent in my direction, teasing me…taunting me.

“I-I’m losing control, Edward,” I spoke. I closed my mouth and stopped breathing, hoping that it would help. But it was too late. Her scent was… irresistible.

Edward finally stopped smiling, understanding.

Jacob understood as well, and he immediately turned to Kimi, the girl, saying “We have to go. NOW!”

JACOB BLACK

Oh no. Oh no, oh no, oh no. Bella and Kimi. Kimi and Bella. Bella about to tear and feed off my Kimi.

I had to get her out of here. Now.

I grabbed Kimi and turned around trying to rush her out of there before Bella fully lost control. In my haste to get her out of there, to take her somewhere safe, she tripped and used her hands to brace herself against the sharp rocks that were on the ground.

I caught her before she fell and quickly pulled her back upright. She held up her hands and I saw that she had scraped them against the jagged rocks, and there were traces of blood appearing where the slight wound was.

Bella lost control. Edward was at her side in an instant trying to restrain her. But she was a newborn and much stronger than he was. He was trying not to hurt her in the restraining process and I knew that he could not keep her away much longer.

I felt my instincts taking over. My body trembled violently, the convulsions getting stronger and stronger as my body fell apart and then caught itself in the form so familiar to me.

I didn’t have time to look at Kimi, to see her reaction. All I cared about at this moment was to get her out of there alive. And for that, I was willing to do whatever it took.

I was just in time. Bella had just escaped Edward’s grip and was lunging for Kimi, her sharp teeth gleaming.

I charged at her, keeping her at a distance while her jaws snapped shut trying to get past me. I didn’t want to hurt her but I wouldn’t let her get close to my Kimi.

Edward was there behind her again, restraining her.

“Go! Take her away!” Edward hissed, his eyes flashing.

I looked towards Kimi, afraid to reach out to her in case I hurt her.

The leech read my mind. “Kimi, get on his back!” he commanded.

“What?!” Kimi asked bewildered.

“Get on his back!” he repeated.

I kneeled down in front her and she crawled on top of my back.

As I ran quickly into the other direction, I heard Edward shout out, his voice fading, “Get him clothes!”

I paused to nod emphatically. She just looked at me, her eyes as wide as I’ve ever seen them.

I ran far away, giving Edward enough time to take Bella away. Kimi had her arms around my neck, clinging on.

After a while, I spun around, taking Kimi back to the part of the forest where her house was.

I didn’t know how I was supposed to explain this to her. This and the fact that when I changed back into my human form, I would be naked…

I kneeled down and she climbed off, trembling slightly.

I trotted over behind a tree and changed back.

“J-Jacob?” she called nervously.

I took a deep breath before answering, “We’ll talk, I promise. But, I…need clothes first.”

“I’m kind of scared to leave her right now,” she mumbled.

“I can see you from here; I promise nothing will happen to you. But I really…do need clothes. Please,” I pleaded.

She thought for a bit and then raced to her house, the door slamming behind her.

For a moment, I thought that she wouldn’t come back, but I trusted Kimi not to leave me like this. After abut a few minutes of scrambling around, I heard quiet footsteps leaving from her house. She came racing back to meet me. She brought me cargo pants and a white t-shirt.

“Throw them to me,” I called out.

She threw them at me and turned around immediately. I hurried to put the clothes on.

“You know… I’m not that bad looking when I’m completely naked,” I said, trying to lighten the mood.

“That’s not something you decide for yourself,” she replied.

I knew Kimi was still in a shock after what she just encountered. I came out from behind the tree, walking towards Kimi’s direction.

She stiffened quickly and took about a half step backwards. Although she only moved back a little, it still hurt me.

“Can you please explain to me what the hell is going on?” she asked, trying to keep her voice steady.

“Maybe you should sit down first,” I suggested, gesturing towards a small log.

She looked at my hand and then at the log and then went to sit down. She rested her hand under her chin and gazed up at me expectantly.

I took a deep breathe and thought about where I should start. I decided to start from the beginning, always a good place to start, and so I explained to her about the stories that my ancestors had passed down.

“I never really believed in them. But my father did. I always thought that he was a superstitious old coot. But then…my world changed forever,” I mumbled, looking down sadly.

“About two years ago, a family, the Cullens moved into Forks, a town near La Push. They were the vampires in the stories that I just told you. When they first came to town many years ago, my ancestor Ephraim Black made a treaty with Carlisle, the head of the coven. The agreement was that they would neither feed nor change any of the humans in our town.

“They never stayed in one place too long, for you see, they don’t age. But the Cullens finally came back about two years ago. And because of that…we started to change. We discovered that we could turn into wolves, protectors as we liked to call ourselves. We have tremendous strength, speed and agility in our wolf forms. We can heal incredibly fast, and we can all hear each other’s thoughts,” I paused to take a breath.

“Wow, wow, wow. I thought that vampires couldn’t come out during the day. Don’t they sleep in coffins? Forget that, I didn’t even know they existed!” Kimi interrupted.

“Hollywood tends to change the facts a little,” I told her grimly. “Besides, you saw for yourself, those two people back there were outside and it was daylight.”

“Those two people were vampires? So then…Bella was a vampire? I don’t understand. If werewolves and vampires are such natural enemies, then how did you fall in love with a vampire?” She asked.

“Bella wasn’t always a vampire. Edward, the boy who was with her, was though. And they fell in love and as you saw, got married. She wanted to be changed, to be with him forever. So he changed her. Into the lifeless, cold stone that she is now,” I told Kimi through clenched teeth.

“But…I thought you said that these vampires are different and that they don’t feed on humans,” Kimi put in.

“It comes easier for older leeches. But Bella, she was just recently changed. The bloodlust is much harder for her. It can make them loose total control, go crazy,” I told her.

“So, she was…trying to feed on me?!” Kimi asked incredulously.

“It’s something she can’t control. She’s not a monster. She wasn’t…a monster,” I said, quickly coming to Bella’s defense.

“She tried to put her fangs in my neck. If that doesn’t qualify as a monster, then I don’t know what does!” she screamed, scrambling up to her feet.

“So then what do you think of me? I’ve torn apart a leech before. I’m just as capable of destruction as she is. So you think I’m a monster too?” I asked her, pissed off and hurt at the same time.

“I-I didn’t mean it like that. You don’t go around drinking people’s blood.” She answered.

“So you’re saying that you’re not scared of me?” I asked, afraid to believe.

She walked over to where I was standing, and she clasped both her hands around mine.

“Jake…you saved my life. Why would I be scared of you? It doesn’t matter to me that you can run around as an overgrown wolf. You are still my Jacob. And I will always love you!” she told me, her eyes filled with emotion.

“I love you too. More than words can ever freaking express. You are my soul, my other half. Hope I’m not scaring you?” I answered back.
