2. Chapter 2: "Makatah"

Rating 0/5   Word Count 1554   Review this Chapter

We went straight to the kitchen. Alice slumped to her favorite chair and looked at me. She mouthed the words “Call him”, pointing to the phone. I reached for the phone and dialed the number to the Clearwaters. Seth is the only remaining werewolf who’s still fond of me since Jacob’s flight.
“Hello?” an enthusiastic voice came out from the receiver.
“Hi, Seth”
“Bella! How are you? It’s been a while… How’s Charlie? Edward?”
“They’re in great shape, Seth. Uh mm… any news about Jacob?”

Every now and then, I always want to know what Jacob’s been doing, where he was, how he was. I don’t know why but I feel a deep depression whenever I think about Jacob. As if I am also very very heartbroken.
I want to sulk too but I don’t know why. So I tried to stop thinking about Jacob and contented myself on asking Seth. Seth is the only person to whom I could confirm things about Jacob.

“Still sulking in the Northern Canada” Seth said grimly. “He’s been in his wolf form for a week now”

I was quiet for a moment. Surely, Jacob is in pain. I felt stupid and useless for being here having bridal showers while he’s there enduring pain. I want to give him company but I always remember that I am actually the reason while he’s in there in the first place.

“Anything I can do?” I asked for the nth time already this week.
“No Bella. Billy insisted in letting him be. He’s dealing a great thing. It’s hard to oppose the nature you know” said Seth in a matter-of-fact tone.

I was about to ask him what he means about Jacob ‘opposing the nature’ when I caught Alice’s eyes. She looked impatient already and I suddenly remembered why I called.

“Seth, listen, can you do me a favor? Can you contact Sam Uley for me? I want to meet him in the border right now. Alice is with me” Better warn him earlier than surprise him that I’ll bring Alice along. I don’t want to deal with another “Paul tantrums” today. Not now.

“Oh…sure Bella. Wait, I’ll be in my wolf form first then I’ll call you for confirmation. Okay?”
“Okay then”
“Later. It won’t take long” he finally hang up.

I went to sit next to Alice and let my curiosity and nervousness deal with her. “Why do we have to talk to Sam, Alice?” I demanded

She’s nibbling a piece of beef jerky Charlie gave her yesterday. She pointed at my wolf charm without a word. I looked at the bracelet at once. “Seriously, Alice I am getting mad. Nothing of this makes sense.”

I feel really stupid now alright. Every minute, I feel as if I am not grasping anything that can explain all of this. And she’s not helping at all. She faced me apologetically and stopped nibbling and said, “I don’t know either Bella. I have a hunch though. That bracelet of yours is something. I can feel that it has something to do with you becoming a super vampire thingy.”

“What can a brace-“ I was cut off by the phone. I picked it up eagerly.

“Hey Seth!”
“Sam says he’ll meet you in the border, only if you’re alone.” Seth spoke as if he just went in to a debate and lost.
“Oh,” I gave Alice an omg-there-is-a-minor-problem look, and went on, “okay then what time?”
“Oh right now Bella” he said.

I was driving Alice’s yellow Porsche. She was not surprised when I told her about Sam’s condition, but she insisted that I use her car so that she can have revenge by letting Sam sniff all the vampire scent that’s in it. Surely, Sam will go berserk. I told her that I don’t even know why I should meet him but she said that that won’t be a problem. I sometimes suspect that Alice might be bluffing about not seeing the wolves in her future visions, considering how accurate her “hunches” are.

I finally arrived at the borderline and saw a figure waiting at the center. Sam broadened again. He looked more handsome than before but his grim features still make him less seductive.
I sighed and went to meet him.

“Hi” I finally said waving at him. I feel awkward with him, knowing that he hated me after all the mess I did. He saw my bracelet and his eyes widened in shock.
“Who gave you that!” he spat.

I was surprised by his reaction. I quickly tried to hide what he’s pointing at but he swiftly held my hand back very hard but gently. He eyed the wolf figurine in it and asked again, “Who gave you this?!”

“J-Jacob” I finally blurted. He eyed me very curiously and finally he let go of my hand. He turned his back to me, “He gave you his Makatah?! He’s really an IDIOT!!!” he bellowed

“His Makatah?” I held the bracelet to my eyes. The handcrafted Wolf figurine still amazes me. I held it defensively, scared that Sam might stole it from me.

“Yeah, a Makatah. Werewolves only give that to their special someone. Their imprinted one. How can Jacob gave his to you?”

I was shocked. Imprinted ones? What does that mean? Jacob imprinted on me?
“But Jacob didn’t imprint on me” I said, my knees wanted to shake.

“yeah, I know that. Surely I’ll be the one to know that of course!” he said, his voice gave away his irritation. “But that’s not the point. Imprinted or not, once a werewolf gave that to a person, that werewolf marks that person as his half-self. A part of him. That is why it is only given to those whom the werewolves imprinted on because they knew that they’ll be together till the end.” He paused. He eyed me and saw that I was speechless and confused so he went on, “A part of him Bella. Do you understand? You are like him now. You can do what he can do. You feel what he feels. You’re as if his werewolf counterpart but the thing is you don’t change into a monster”

“B-but I don’t feel-“ And then realization struck me. So THAT explains everything. The reason why I feel depressed whenever I think about Jacob. I am not the one depressed … He is!

Sam took a step toward me and I backed away immediately. I am scared of him, really.
“Don’t be afraid” he said. “I will not do you any harm nor will I take that bracelet back. I can’t do anything about it now. He already wholeheartedly gave that to you. I just wish you take good care of it…I…I beg you” This is the first time I heard Sam begged. I always sense majesty in his voice, but now..

“Of course I will!” I said. He seemed convinced. “Bella, you are the closest thing to Jacob right now. You are a part of him. You can feel him. You can comfort him even in the distance, just think about him being with you and he’ll feel you there.”

I stood there for a moment. I felt my eyes starting to build up tears. Is that how Jacob love me? To entrust this thing on me? To entrust his feelings to me? I don’t deserve this…..

“You don’t have to love him. I am not asking you that. I knew how great your love is for that bloodsucker, but at least take good care of Jacob as your friend. Really, what was he thinking giving you THAT….”

I wanted to cry right now, Of course, I am being a crybaby again. I am shocked from the things I learned from today. A different Vampire, and now a Wolf counterpart…

“Wait, Sam…” I said before I could stop myself, “Does that mean I am a werewolf now?”

Sam laughed, “No of course not, Bella! You don’t have Werewolf blood. What you have is Werewolf abilities. The same Jacob have. It is mirrored in you permanently. It is now magically imprinted on your blood. You will have that forever as if you were born with it. You are a part of him remember? But you are not him.”

I eyed the bracelet for moment, thinking about Jacob. I LOVE him but I love Edward more. I can’t live without Edward but it would be unfair to him if I love Jacob too. I should change this love into
A friendly one before I could mess thing again…….

“So how did it go?” Alice asked me as soon as we got back to my room.
I took a deep breath before I spoke, “He told me that Jacob gave his Makatah to me” I touched the bracelet again.

“Makatah?” She asked, confused. Then I told her everything that Sam told me in the Borderline.
“I told you!” She seemed enlightened now from a problem that was bothering her for a long time, “That bracelet is something, no wonder you are powerful, Bella! You have wolf abilities now and it can expand to a thousand times once you-” she stopped, gasping. She closed her eyes and I know what was happening right away.

“What do you-“ but before I could ask, she opened her eyes in horror…

“Jane.” She looked at me, ”They’re coming with Caius”
