A Freaky Imprint

Summary:
Jacob loses. Bella chooses Edward and runs away with the rest of the Cullens to whatever secluded, cloudy town they choose to move to. And they leave Jacob in La Push, trying as hard as he can to get over her. But then he realizes he's out of peanut butter. And so it all begins. The whole pack imprints on one girl. A girl who happens to be a vampire. Marie is running from something, and chooses Forks of all places to make her 'normal' life as a supermarket employee. But that idea is destroyed when the weird wolf guys come in and screws everything up. The pack is on the verge of falling apart over Marie. Only Sam seems to realize that she's not right at all. Can he possibly stop them from killing each other over something they are created to destroy? I'm sorry, I can't help but make it crack-ficish. Rated 'T' for language.

Chapter 12:

With Opened Eyes

Brian’s POV

When we had walked home together the night before, everything had seemed normal. It had been no different from any other night!

We had ended our shift at midnight without any more interruptions from the weird family, and stopped by the local fast food joint and grabbed some fries like we always did, and I had eaten both mine and Marie’s like usual. Jeff’s brother, Greg even hit on Marie as usual. And, as usual, she turned him down.

We had walked to the house that we lived at together with my mother, and we had talked till four in the morning on the back porch until it started raining so heavily that we had decided to call it a night.

The next day seemed normal enough, too. Marie and I had left at 11:55 to start out our Sunday 12:21 shift. We had some left over pizza for breakfast (well, I ate it anyway, while Marie sat and talked with me) and then started off in our crappy car. It had broken down, which was far from strange, half way to work and we tinkered with it for fifteen minutes before Marie successfully hotwired it and got to work only thirteen minutes late, where Carl, our boss, had lectured us for seven minutes before we started working.

She seemed completely fine as we restocked the magazines. She had laughed, made a few jokes, and acted as if everything was okay.

I was working at the register when the pretty black-haired girl came in and everything changed. I watched her go straight to Marie, where they had a very quiet, yet emotional looking conversation, where Marie started shaking. I started to go over there and tell the girl to go away, when she had done something that cause Marie to run so inhumanly, it made me doubt whatever I had ever thought about the girl I loved.

She was trembling, and I had never seen that on Marie. It made me frightened. But what stopped me was the way she looked at the black-haired girl. She was beautiful, completely and totally gorgeous, but her expression was as inhuman as it could get. It had caused be, her best friend, to take a step back and start shaking at the knees.

And then she ran. If that’s what you could call it. It sure didn’t look like any running I’d seen anyone do before. She was so incredibly fast, you could barely see her. It took her a full 5 seconds to disappear outside, but it seemed to be in slow-motion to me. I had known her so well, and suddenly she changed. I had seen her scared and frightening, then inhuman.

I trudged home, feeling empty, helpless, scared, and heartbroken. What I had seen Marie do was worse than any rejection she could have ever delivered. Yet I still wanted to see her. And that was very, very stupid. Marie had lied to me for two years. She wasn’t even human.

And even though she was a liar and God knows what, I still loved her.
