[PoV of Sam]

I know now that I’ve loved her all this time. I know that love is stronger than an imprint because I can hardly feel Emily with me. She is always there, but she’s hiding just as my love for Leah used to. But what’s the use? She’s gone. Forever.

“I love you Leah… Forever and always.” I know it’s true. I’ve always loved her, my Lee-Lee. And I always will, even when I’m gone. She died thinking that I didn’t want her, that I thought Emily was the one for me. But it was always Leah.

“Ness. Run. If I start catch up, I don’t know what I’ll do. Just run. Find Jacob, tell him to keep you safe.”

I know I won’t chase her: I can’t kill her. I just don’t want her to be around when I join Leah. I don’t want her to try and stop me, to tell me that it’s okay. I don’t want her to show me Leah’s life and all her memories. I don’t want to remember all the reasons that I should stay here.

I want to be with Leah, I now know that I’m strong enough. It might be too late for the life she’s been dreaming of. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve me to follow through. It’s taken years to get to this point. It’s taken years for me to finally realise that she’s the only one that I could ever truly commit to. I’m not backing out now.

“I love you. I’ve loved you since the very first time I set my eyes on you Lee-Lee. What you and I share, it’s so much more than just an imprint… It’s love. It’s what holds the world together and makes each day a magical event. I love you and I promise that that will never change. Forever and always I’ll be here for you.”

I can feel the air on my face, I can smell all the wonders of the forest, I can hear the smallest of movements. I hold Leah in my arms and know that although we are worlds apart in a matter of minutes we will join to become one with the earth. We will be together in everything around us, we will be forever and always united.

Nothing can separate us now. Nothing can hold us apart.

[PoV of Jacob]

I don’t know how I got through the night but sitting here hearing footsteps I know belong to Nessie, running towards me… It wipes away everything else.

When we’re apart it feels like something is missing. Now I have everything in my reach. The footsteps stop, she’s standing in front of me, I can tell. Her smell wafts into my nose and the sound of her beating heart is music to my ears.

“I know you have no reason to take me back and I completely understand if you don’t. I’ve made the biggest mistake I ever could. I’ve dragged my best friend to her deathbed and caused immense pain to those that love her. And yet in the moments after she died all I could think of was you. All I could think of whilst she lay in the arms of her loved one was how much I wish I could be held like she was. How much I would love to be loved unconditionally, regardless of all my flaws. I don’t care if it’s an imprint that has you loving me, it doesn’t make it any less real. When you tell me you love me, you aren’t lying and I know that now. I thought of Sam and Emily and defined what an imprint was off that. Then I looked at Sam and Leah and I know that if Leah weren’t a werewolf Sam would have imprinted on her. It’s just that she can’t have children, so he imprinted on the nearest thing to her because nature didn’t know what else to do. He’s been living with second best ever since he set his eyes on Emily because nature couldn’t understand the concept of him and Leah.

“Now I want to be the best for you, I want to be the one you wake up to every day for the rest of your life. I want to be the girl you point to when you’re talking about the love of your life. I want to be the girl. End of story. Only it’s not quite the end of the story.”

She bent down on one knee, “Jacob Black, I want to be with you until my dying day. I don’t want to spend a single second from now till then without you by my side. I know I haven’t got a ring, and I know I’m not the one that should be doing this… But some people wait their entire lives to find someone who is right for them, sure, I found him very early in my life, but why should I wait? There is no one else on earth that is quite like you.”

She held her breath and I could hear her heartbeat racing at an unbelievable rate. I smiled and my heart soared: nothing else mattered. Nothing else but the most beautiful, kind, caring girl in front of me. Nothing else but the girl I would have waited centuries for. “And they lived happily ever after.”

He face was stern, “This is nothing even remotely like a fairy tale. But I love you and that will never change.”

Far off there was the sound of a wailing wolf. Part of me wondered which of my brothers it was but part of me didn’t care. I would find out later. Right now it was her and me. – Scrap that, it would always be her and me.
