Chapter 3- School Seth Tries to Make a Move and Uncle Seth has some Good News.
Everything was very new to me. It always had been. It was difficult looking like a teenager, yet having the experience of a four year old. I was forced to grow up quickly in order to preserve our secret. I do not know what I would do had it not been for Jacob by my side.
High school has to be the most difficult part of human life. One minute you are on top and the next you are belly up with everyone tearing at your flesh like wolves. Dramatic, maybe, but it was how I saw it. Some people though were kind to me. One boy in particular didn't seem to want to leave me alone. He followed me like a little puppy dog. I had met him on my first day. Seth was his name, but he was nothing like that Seth I knew from home. Not completely anyway. I don't think he was as pure, but I couldn't be sure. I could not read minds.
It was lunch time when I finally asked him what he wanted. His answer? A shrug.
"You look lonely," he replied. "You don't have any friends besides your foster brother."
The way he said ‘foster brother' I knew he didn't put much stock in Jacob's friendship. I could have been angry at the implication, but Jacob wasn't doing much to contradict the back story my father had set out for him. In fact he had detention for the next two weeks.
I shrugged in response. "I do not need any friends."
"You really do," he replied, sitting down at my table. I saw Jake come in and sit down at the table next to us, eyeing Seth.
I just shrugged again and took a bite of the pizza I was eating. Human food wasn't my favorite. I could taste it, but it was just so dry that I didn't enjoy it. Unless it was ice cream. I really liked ice cream.
"Don't you like it?"
I looked up at Seth with a frown. "What?"
"The pizza. You looked like you didn't like it."
I shrugged. "It is not my favorite."
I bit my lip, drawing a bit of blood. "I like...steak," I said finally. It was sort of true. Steak was bloody right? I smiled a bit and looked back down at my food.
"I like steak too," he said quickly, obviously happy to have found something in common with me, however ridiculous it was.
Jacob snorted into his hamburger, shoving half of it into his mouth. "Your manners are disgusting," I told him.
He just glared at Seth who had turned to look at him. Seth turned back around, looking like he was about to loose whatever food he had consumed that day. "So..." he said. "How do you like your steak?"
On the way home that day, Jack mocked me softly. I growled at him, promising that the next time we went hunting I would bite him on accident instead of whatever it was that I was hunting.
When he pulled the car over her suddenly frowned and then grinned at me. I narrowed my eye, before I too smelt what he had. I beamed and scrambled out of the car, Jacob close behind me.
We both cam through the door at the same time and everyone jumped to their feet in surprise.
"I win," I told Jacob.
He smirked at me and shook his head. "Seth," he greeted.
My uncle Seth grinned. "Jake!" He hugged him, must to Jake's pretend chagrin. "How's everything?"
He greeted me next with a loud Nessie and a large hug. He picked me up off my feet and I could not help but laugh. "Hey, uncle Seth."
"You're so...big," he replied.
He turned to Jake. "I have so much to tell you!"
"What?" Jacob asked, taking a seat next to uncle Emmett. I squeezed between them, elbowing them a bit to make room for myself.
"Well...you know Leah's getting married. You have to come Jake."
Jacob shook his head. "I-"
"Leah wants you to walk her down the aisle."
Silence and I grinned. "That's wonderful!" my mother and I said at the same time. She smiled at me.
"Dad's dead and...you're the one who helped her move on. She wants you to. She asked me to ask. You know Leah, she wouldn't want to do it herself and risk sounding all sappy."
"You can't say no," I told him.
He made a face, but nodded. "She wouldn't let me anyway," he said. "I'll be there."
"I'll find you a tux," Alice said cheerfully.
"You all can come too. Everyone that Leah is inviting knows your secret and Mark's family doesn't know a thing."
"Charlie?" Momma asked.
Uncle Seth nodded and momma looked pleased.
"When's the wedding?" Aunt Alice asked.
The look she gave him could have killed someone. "A week? That's not enough time to plan everyone's outfits."
Everyone groaned. I didn't understand it. I liked it when Aunt Alice got clothes for me and helped me look nice.
"Think that in fifty years," daddy said.
Aunt Alice didn't say anything, she was already gone.
"Thanks, Seth," Jacob said sarcastically.
"Sorry." He turned to me with a grin. "So, now that you're a big high school girl, you gunna bring a date."
"Yep," Jacob said. "She's bringing Seth from school."
I growled and elbowed him hard in the stomach just as daddy said, "Who's Seth?"
"A regular Mike Newton," I muttered, remembering momma's stories about the boy who would not give up in perusing her,
Uncle Emmett laughed, but daddy gave him such a mean look that he went quiet.
"He's harmless," Jacob put in.
Daddy snorted and Emmett laughed again. "You can't put her in school and not expect guys to hit on her."
"Jacob," he said, glaring at my friend. "Is supposed to detour those things."
"He didn't detour Mike," Momma said thoughtfully.
Daddy scowled and Jacob chuckled a bit. "I wasn't a were-a shape shifter back then. It's pretty pathetic now."
Uncle Seth laughed. "So, he's not coming Nessie."
"Renesmee, language," momma warned, glaring at Jacob.
"I don't cuss in front of her," Jacob protested. It was a lie. He did it all the time.
Daddy chuckled at my thought, before glaring at Jacob again. "Be more...fierce."
"Grrr," Jacob said, baring his teeth in a caricature of a snarl.
"That's good," Seth said, wryly.
