I ran. I just ran. I didn’t know what had happened to me and I didn’t really want to. All I wanted was to be me again. I didn’t know if minutes or hours had past. I just ran as fast as I could as far as I could. I wasn’t tired. I would of preferred it if I was though. Then I would feel more normal. Tears ran freely down my used-to-be-human face. Soon uncontrollable sobbing broke out and I stopped for the first time in hours, or maybe even days. I really had lost track of time. I collapsed slowly to the floor and just lay there, thinking. Could I ever go to school again? See my friends, my family? Those thoughts faltered for a minute in my mind as I tried to think of a way to return to my normal self. I was in the forest now. Deep in the forest, where no one would find me. That was good. No one could see me like this.

Don’t panic. Jacob’s voice ran clearly through my mind. Well that’s just great. Now I’m hearing voices. Amber, just calm down. I didn’t listen to the voice. I got up and started running again, trying to get away from the bodiless voice of my brother. After about a hour, the voice finally stopped, and so did I. I looked around. I was by some sort of lake. I ran up to it, just realising how thirsty I was. I looked in to the clear blue water and nearly jumped a mile. I thought whatever I had turned in to would resemble me even slightly, but no. A large wolf was staring back. A large lone wolf that had tears running down its fur. I closed my eyes and opened them after a minute, hoping that it was some kind of dream. It wasn’t. The same wolf stared right back at me. I desperately hoped that I was really in a coma, or knocked out or something and was imagining things. I hoped. It didn’t happen. This was happening to me right now. I was the wolf in the reflection, I had somehow transformed in to this creature. And I hated it. I hated being this... thing, this oversized wolf. I closed my eyes again and imagined my friends and family in my mind. I could see their faces clearly, almost crystal clear. I breathed in the scent around them. And then they spotted me. Some of them stumbled back, some of them screamed. I stepped forward, trying to show that it was still me. But they thought I was about to attack and they ran. All of them just ran. Jacob, Leah, Seth, Quil... Edward, Alice. They all ran. I tried to call for them but no voice came out, just a snarl. I opened my eyes suddenly and gasped. Talk about a day -mare. I suddenly felt determination fill my body. If I could change in to a wolf, I could change back. I stood up shakily, not completely trusting my legs yet.

Amber? Come back. We can help you. I jumped as the voice of Embry rang in my head.

How? It felt a bit stupid, speaking to myself. But maybe it really was them. Unlikely, but after what I’d been through today, nothing could surprise me. I started running back, hoping against hope that it really was Jake and Embry talking to me.

I eventually arrived at the edge of the forest which looked on to my street. I didn’t want to go any further in case I scared some one.

Um... I thought uncomfortably. I’m at the edge of the forest. I yelped as two other wolves came towards me. They were a lot bigger than me. I was the size of a normal wolf-human thing, but they looked more like bears than wolves. I growled unconsciously.

It’s alright, Amber. It’s me. Spoke the larger one in my mind.

Jacob? I asked cautiously. Why can we hear each others thoughts? What’s happened to me? Why am I a flipping wolf?!

Calm down! Thought the other one, who I found out was Embry.

About an ten minutes I was calm enough to be able to change back. They told me to change in the woods because of the clothes issue. I could see that getting annoying. So, with different clothes in my... uh, paw, I headed in to the woods. I relaxed as much as I could and imagined myself turning human again. When I opened my eyes sighed in relief. I was normal again! I quickly changed in to my clothes and headed back to the place where I had met the two huge wolves. They were human again too. I looked up at them.

“Explain.”
