Dawn’s Point View

The wind rushed out of me and I didn’t know what to say. What do you say to a person who just admitted that they were going to kill your father? What could I possibly say? My mind was swarming with a mixture of anger and grief and honestly, reassurance. My dad did something horrible I know that but does he deserve to die because of what he did? I know if it were different, if it wasn’t my father, I know that it would be different. Everything would be different.

“They’ll be here soon Dawn. Sooner then you know it, so if you have anything you need to do…you should do it now.” Leah’s face ran through my mind over and over again like a broken record. I didn’t want to leave her like that because I know how it feels to be her and I don’t want her to feel that way anymore.

“Can I borrow your car?” I asked Jacob. He thought for a minute and started to say no.

“I don’t know man have you ever driven a car?” I smiled.

“Does a Lamborghini count?” I watched his eyes pop out of their sockets and grabbed his keys.

“I’ll be back soon Jake. Don’t tell anyone where I’ve gone either.” He looked up at me confused.

“But where are you going?” He asked.

“You know where.” I left him in the living room holding his gut, laughing. He had to know where I was going.

The rabbit was hardly a Lamborghini, actually it wasn’t even close. I wasn’t sure where I was going but I knew that somewhere in La Push there would be a house and inside that house would be Leah and I was going to tell her that she when I first saw her at the airport, she made my day. I parked in front of an old house not that much bigger then Jacob’s, I could here her arguing with her brother but she was crying at the same time. I listened to her quite sniffling at her hushed sobs, and wondered how it felt to cry.

“No Seth we can’t! I can’t!”

“But Le-aah!”

“No I’m not going back there and neither are you! Not at least until he leaves.” She slammed the door and Seth was left pouting on the couch.

The little one story house was not hard to sneak into. My feet lightly touched the ground in the hallway and I knocked gently on Leah’s door.

“No Seth I already told you!” She swung the door open and was paralyzed in shock. “Dawn?” She whispered before grabbing my shirt and pulling me inside. “What the hell are you doing here? They’ll smell you here and they’ll come for you!” I smiled and shrugged.

“So what?” Her mouth dropped to the floor.

“So what?! Dawn you said…you said you didn’t want to use your powers on them yet you come here knowing that they’ll find you and want to fight you!”

“Why are you so scared of them Leah? What have they done for you other then make your life a living hell? I know what it’s like Leah, it’s not hard to see that you’re heartbroken and you need someone to fix you up! Don’t be so coy about it! It’s just making me harder to be next to you…” Her eyes bore into mine like hot rays from the sun.

"How do you know that? You can read minds to or something?" She raised one eyebrow but her embarrassment was as clear as day.

"I don't have to read your mind to know your upset and I don't have to read your mind to know you like me. Please don’t make this any harder then it already is." I pulled her close to me, chest to chest with my hands on the small of her back.

"You’re the one who's making it hard. You’re so different. How do I know I can trust you?" She whispered into my ear.

"How do we know anything these days? Nothing’s for certain but there’s so much to learn... especially from our mistakes." She laughed and laid her head against my chest.

"You have a heartbeat." She whispered sending chills down my spine.

"So do you."

"But yours, it's so slow. Like a dying heart."

"That's odd because I couldn't feel more alive right now." She looked up at me, all onyx eyes and red skin. Her skin was on fire but so was mine. "They’re coming soon." I said.

"Your mother and father?" She asked.

"And more." She looked worried. But I kissed her on her forehead feeling my lips burn.

"What do we do? Will there be war?"

"Not as long as I can help it but until then I just want to wait here with you." She pulled back but I had to keep at least one hand on her waist. Just the thought of not touching her made me crazy.

"I hate vampires." She said, smirking.

"But I love werewolves." She giggled and it was the first time I ever hear her laugh. "You have a beautiful smile. Don't ever make it go away..." I leaned in and pressed my lips to hers. The fire, the passion, the loss of time! It all swirled together endlessly; we were losing ourselves in each others arms. Holding on to what little we had left in the world, just us for now.

That night I held Leah in my arms, she felt so soft compared to a vampire’s hard marble body, like holding boiling hot water. I felt her skin burn under my palm, I felt the smooth lines of her lips, kissed them with mine. I heard her quiet breathing and wistful sighs and thought never have I seen something or someone so stunning in my short but well varied life. We talked for hours, never stopping to rest, I felt like I had limited time with her-there in our peaceful state and I searched for some kind of hesitation in her eyes but found nothing. The wind was cool coming through her window and I imagined my mother liked it very much here. The familiar scents of wood, pine and moist soil spread through the room in an elegant concoction of beauty. The most beautiful thing was lying in my arms.

“My mother told me something about imprinting, something your kind does, do you think…you imprinted on me?” I asked carefully. Leah pulled away from me and I sat up in her bed.

“I can’t do that Dawn. I… I’m not right.” I looked at her confused but she was facing away from me. She felt embarrassed and sad and lonely.

“What do you mean? Only the men can do it? What do you mean you’re not right? You’re perfect to me.” She shrugged her shoulders.

“It’s been discussed a lot around here, why I can’t produce. They say you imprint to make stronger, better wolves but how can I imprint when I can’t make any wolves? I think that’s why I turned in the first place…because I’ll never bear children and I’m of know use to the other’s.” I pulled her closer not sure what to say. But now I knew what Jacob was talking about when he said that Leah couldn’t have kids.

“I don’t care.” I whispered in her ears. She faced me and kissed me again.

“Have you ever been in love Dawn?” I nodded no. She touched my face, tracing my jaw with her finger tips.

“Have you?” I asked closing my eyes.

“Once before, but the beginning wasn’t like this. I don’t remember it feeling this good. You know, I like not being able to imprint, it makes me appreciate what I find because I found it. I don’t want to be forced to love someone, even if it is fate.”

“What was his name?” I had never felt jealousy before, never needed to but suddenly I could feel fire running through my veins.

“I doesn’t matter anymore.”

“He hurt you didn’t he?” I said kissing the hollow of her neck.

“Only as much as someone could possibly hurt you. But like I said it doesn’t matter anymore as long as I have you.” A loud thudding noise interrupted our conversation and me and Leah jumped in surprise.

“Leah!! It’s Seth! The Cullen’s have arrived and we’re supposed to meet them in an hour! Hurry!!” My mind went blank and Leah grew cold and rigid in my arms. This was it, this was the end.
