Chapter 3: The Calm Before the Storm

Seth and I sat on the beach, watching the sunset. Jake and Nessie had returned to the house earlier that afternoon, but I’d wanted to stay with Seth.

“The sunset is lovely tonight,” I whispered.

“Yeah,” Seth admitted. “It’s better than any movie at the Port Angeles Cinema that I want to see right now. Besides.” He added; I saw him turn to gaze at me, “I like the heroine in this story. The one who’s sitting with me on the beach.”

I blushed. “Really?” I asked, feeling giggles on the corner of my throat. Seth nodded.

I stood up, and stuck my bare foot into the ocean, letting the water wash around it. He also set his foot onto the wet sand, just as another swell made it’s way onto the beach. I shivered with pleasure as it made contact with my skin; I saw his shiver, to, and he smiled at me when I caught his eye.

“Race you!” I called, dashing into the swells. I heard his laughter as he sprinted after me. We raced down the beach, water tickling our feet as we dashed through the sand and waves. We laughed as we tumbled onto the shore again, laughing, before we gazed back at the setting sun again.

I was enclosed in his arms, the two of us lying on the beach, watching the sunset again

I could’ve stayed like that all evening, but I had some questions I needed to ask.

“What is it with that Sean person?” I asked, “What does he want with the Cullens?”

Seth stared out at the horizon for a moment before answering. “It’s not what he wants, it’s what he has,” Seth muttered. “Something that Sean thinks can help us, but Edward and Jake think will only hurt us.”

I turned to face him. “What is it?”

“A gift,” Seth replied. “It’s… difficult to explain.”

“I think I can hang on,” I said. “Remember, I live with vampires, and my boyfriend can turn into a giant wolf at will.”

Seth chuckled. “That’s right.” He admitted. “He sure can.”

I waited, holding my breath as Seth began to speak. “Sean’s talent is a new concept to Edward,” Seth began. “To put it simply, though,” He paused, turning to me.

“Are you sure you want to hear this?” he asked. I nodded.

“Sean,” Seth began again. He paused, took a deep breath, and cleared his throat. “Sean has a knack for getting into trouble.”

I laughed. “Really?” I asked between gales of laughter. “I was under the impression that anyone can cause a bit of trouble!”

“Not like that,” Seth replied, even though a slight smile lit up his features. “I mean that’s his gift. Like Edward’s mind-reading, Alice’s physic abilities, Jasper’s emotional climate controlling, and Bella’s shield.” He paused, staring at me. “I’m scared for all of us because of this revelation.”

“I admit, it does kind of scare me, too.” I muttered, no longer laughing. “The way I see it, this may be our last chance.”

“Last chance at what?” Seth asked. “Our last chance of being together in a peaceful atmosphere.” I said. “I like to think of this as a calm before the storm.”

“Let’s hope that storm is a long way off.” Seth replied, and I laughed.

As the last rays of the sunset warmed my skin, I glanced at his smiling face, glad to be with him on what would probably be our last golden day of peace.
