Ashley. She was all I could think about and I fully understood the meaning of imprint. Paul still looked pretty mad but he was going to have to get over himself! I tried to walk as close to Ashley as possible without her getting freaked out. She was glancing about nervously, probably still scared by Jacob who was busy being a wolf. I decided to take a chance and I put a hand on her shoulder. I say it was a chance because, if I scared her away, she'd never ever come back and I would be devastated. When my warm skin touched her shoulder, she flinched and looked at me anxiously.

"Sorry" I muttered, moving away.

"It's ok. Your skin's very warm," she whispered.

"Wolf thing" I smiled. She smiled timidly back at me and I felt my heart beat faster. A breeze whistled past and she shivered.

I looked at her and said," If you want?" she nodded, looking kind of nervous and reluctant. I put an arm around her shoulder.

"Seth! Pick up girls on your own time!" shouted Leah. Ashley jumped, startled at the loud outburst. I patted her shoulder comfortingly.

"Leah, be quiet" I gave her a meaningful look and while she raised her eyebrows, she didn't comment. I smiled grimly, realizing something. Technically, it meant Ashley's sister was safe. Because Ashley was my imprint and I was hurt if she was, she'd be hurt if her sister was which meant, in order to keep me and her sane we had to keep Willow alive. But even I had to admit, she was mouthy. We reached the spot where we'd parked Sam and Jared's car.

"Jared, you take Paul, Jacob, Collin and Bella. I'll take Ashley, Seth, Leah and Brady"

"I am not leaving her alone," said Bella.

"She'll be fine Bella. Seth will look after her," muttered Jacob who had emerged from the bushes, in human form and dressed.

"No Jacob"

"Okay, I'll take Jacob, Bella, Ashley and Seth. Jared, you can take Paul, Collin, Brady and Leah. Embry and Quil, I'm afraid you're going to have to travel rough" they smiled, knowing that they'd get there first and have first dibs on Emily's food. We piled into Sam's car. I knew exactly why he didn't want either me or Ashley in with Paul. Paul was bound to bad mouth Ashley and her family and if I was there, I'd get protective. If she was there, she'd get annoyed and so would Paul. If he got annoyed and tried to attack her, either when I was there or when I wasn't, I would kill him. Or at least try. I felt so different. I didn't like fighting yet I was ready to kill for her! This imprint had changed me so much already! We drove quite quickly to Emily's and Ashley looked taken aback when she saw the pretty little house.

"Not what you expected?" I asked, winking at her. She shook her head and climbed out of the hot car. Emily opened the door and smiled.

"Hey Bella. Sam, Seth, you two had better hurry up. Quil and Embry arrived about two seconds ago yet they've already demolished half the food I made!"

"Where's my sister?" Ashley asked, her voice shaking with fear.

"Oh...Hello. You must be Willow's sister? Which one?"

"Ashley" Both Ashley and I said at the same time.

"Well, she's in the spare room. Her face was quite badly hurt so she's all bandaged up"

"Can she leave?" Ashley asked, clearly deciding that Emily was not dangerous.

"No. not yet, she really should have gone to hospital" said Emily.

"Good. If she knows what I'm going to do, she will want to come and then she will die," said Ashley, sounding incredibly brave. I could tell she wanted her sisters beside her for whatever she had to do.

The other car arrived and Paul said, "Aren't we getting rid of you yet? I hear we have to put up with your sister for a bit longer but still. You are such a skinny little weed; I can't actually see why vampires would want to snack on you"

"YOU ARSEHOLE!" shouted Ashley. The little girl was shaking with rage.

"WHAT DID YOU CALL ME?!" Paul yelled back. He shook and phased. The grey wolf leapt at Ashley. I jumped in front.
