Takes place the day Bella escapes Alice to La Push while Edward is away hunting.
What if Jacob hadn't been able to control himself around Bella? Wouls she be yet again endangering herself, as her vampire family believes, or will she prove that werewolves are harmless around the people they care about? And what will the consequences be for poor Bella?
T just in case.
This idea came to me whilst re-reading New Moon. I really like this idea, so I'll be spending most of my spare time updating on here!

Shit, shit, shit, shit, shit!
I quickly fought to regain control over my body. It was too easy, the smell of Bella’s blood flowing freely from her body brought me to my senses. Once human, I began to panic. She was dying. I had killed her.
What should I do? I couldn’t get Billy over here. He couldn’t get his wheelchair over the ground, and this would probably make him have a stroke. None of the pack had phased when I was a wolf, and I wasn’t going to admit this to them. Especially to Sam. So the pack was out. But what could I do? I sure as hell wasn’t a doctor. And there wasn’t any chance I could carry her anywhere. No way I was calling Charlie with this, he would probably throw my butt into a jail cell…
I didn’t have any other option.
I couldn’t believe that I had to stoop to this. But she was dying… I would never live through this…
Everything had been going great. Until the dog showed up. Just thinking about that lycanthrope had me gnashing my teeth, something that happened very rarely. I was dreading the boys coming home, Edward was going to kill me. Maybe Jasper will be home first, that way he can temper Edwards’ anger; I didn’t really feel like losing any limbs today…
Thinking of Jasper was like an instant muscle relaxant for me. My breathing became more even as I calmed down, and my mind began to slow to what can be considered a crawl to vampires. I love how he effects me.
But then the phone for the house began to ring. Odd, normally I knew before hand if someone was going to call. I sprinted to the phone. This could be interesting.
“Who is this? Alice, right? I think you’re Alice, you sound like the small leech.”
“Jacob Black?” Why was he calling? And how did he get our number? Did Bella not bring a cell with her again? I would have to fix that problem one of these days.
“Alice, I know there’s a treaty. But you need to get to my garage as soon as possible! Please, trust me on this. You need to get here now!”
The phone line went dead.
My body took over before I was able to decide whether I should indeed trust this wolf. Bella trusted him, but this could easily be a trap that the pack laid out for me. Steal Bella, then lure her vampire family across the border to protect her. This was madness, and possibly suicide.
I stopped once I within 5 miles of the border to weigh my options. I could go, see what the dog wants, and persuade Bella to come back home with me. I could call the boys, but then Edward may actually kill Jacob, and I didn’t think that Bella would be too happy about a war starting over her friends stupidity.
I sped towards the border. Clearly, this was a better decision. It wasn’t hard to find my way, all I had to do was follow Bella’s scent mixed with that atrocious stink that belonged to that wolf. Unfortunately, my scent was easy to follow as well. It wasn’t long before two of the oversized wolves were blocking my way.
They stepped warily into my path. It was clear, though, that they had no intention of me going any further. I allowed myself one furious snarl; they wouldn’t keep me away from Bella, she was friend, my sister, and whatever was going on was going to stop. Now.
One of the pack members stepped out of the trees, in human form. He stayed a ways behind the other wolves, presumably to stay out of the action if it came to that. I assumed it was Sam, he had a certain aura about him; he could easily stand out as a leader.
He didn’t bother to raise his voice when he addressed me, he knew I would be able to hear him clearly from a distance. “Why have you come onto our land? The treaty your clan created does not allow you to cross our border. You will not be allowed to leave alive.”
I couldn’t stand this, how could I have allowed myself to come here, completely blinded to anything that may happen? But I couldn’t leave now, not without a fight. And Bella was here, maybe in danger, and definitely being used by the pack.
“One of your dogs, Jacob, called me to his home. Obviously you’ve used Bella to get me here. So help me, if you have done something to her…”
Sam looked surprised, he obviously had no idea what I was talking about.
“Jacob? But why would he call you?”
I took advantage of his momentary confusion, and launched myself over the waiting wolves. I knew they wouldn’t be far behind me, but I was faster. There was an inexplicable feeling of dread steeling over my system. Something was wrong if Jacob hadn’t told his pack that I was coming, and I knew Sam wasn’t lying about being oblivious. I just needed to get to the dogs’ house before his friends did. It was my only chance.
For some reason, I could hear no sign of the pack giving chase. This made no sense to me, surly they would want to keep a close eye on me while I was on their land, right? Perhaps they thought I should find this out on my own, and let Jacob explain everything to them later. I wasn’t delusional enough to believe that they would still let me leave without a struggle, or something along those lines. But I needed to make certain that Bella was ok.
But apparently Bella’s luck had, once again, run out. As I got within sight of Jacobs make-shift garage, all of my hopes for her were dashed. The scent of her freshly spilt blood assailed my senses, and made me jolt to a stop.
Oh, god no.
