After what seemed to be a long wait, we left for La Push Hospital, two miles up the road. Seth climbed in first, with a little shove from me, as he was still asleep, Jacob climbed in after me. Once we were in the ambulance, i rested my head on Jacobs’s shoulder, while he wrapped his arm around me, keeping me close but also warm. I kept my eye on Seth because i could see him dozing quietly in the corner, but then he would jerk his head up trying to stay awake.

I thought about where we were going, the Hospital, it rather felt weird since i never really go to Hospital, well, not since Dad died anyway. Sam always told us;

“If you have a bloody knee or a cut elbow; you come to me, not the hospital. We don’t want to expose our secret.”

He always did say that, but i wondered what would happen if we... oh i do not know... had a heart attack! Would Mr-Fix-It know what to do then?

After all my thoughts and sarcastic comment session in my head, i felt Jacobs’s had slither out from behind me; i opened my eyes (I hadn’t realised i was sleeping!)

“Hey beautiful, are you ready to go, we are here.” Jacob said to me, whilst trying to shake Seth awake.

“Really? Ok. Here let me get him.” I moved over next to Seth and Jacob. I sat in front of Seth,

“Seth, Dad is back!” i whispered quickly and quietly, his eyes shot open and he was looking around the Ambulance in search of Dad. I smile deviously, but catch a glimpse of Jacobs disapproving stare.

“LEEAH! He is not! How could you say that?” Seth whined in my ear, but i kept looking at Jacob.

“Leah, why did you do that? You could have said something like, ‘Seth there is a fire! Get up!’ “Jacob said. Not like, he did it to Bex or Rach.

“Ah, but Jacob, i did do that and this is the result!” i said pointing at a once again nearly sleeping Seth.

“Fair point!” he finally agreed.

In the hospital...

Jacob walked into the building, straight up to the reception desk. Seth and i walked in behind but not with much speed due to Seth being half-unconscious.

“Hello, my name is Jacob Black and these are my girlfriend, Leah Clearwater and her brother Seth Clearwater. We were sent here since we have just been in a burning house. I was told to see Doctor. Cole. Family doctor.” The nurse smiled at Seth and me when Jacob introduced us. She continuously clicked her mouse in search of Dr. Cole. Once she found him she looked at Jacob and said in a very small, girly voice,

“He is in Room 14, down the hall and to your left, i will buzz him so he knows you are coming. What was your name sorry?”

“Jacob Black, some of Billy Black. He knows my father well.” He said.

“Thank you, down the hall and to your left.”

Jacob took lead and walked as directed, i felt a strange feeling of guilt swirl in my stomach. Why? I had no clue.

We arrived at a plain, white door with a square window with NO. 14 printed in the standard font. Jacob knocked, we heard a faint ‘come in’ as we opened the door. A doctor sat at his desk, looking at a file on his desk that he had laid down upon the arrival of us.

“Ah, Jacob, my boy. What are you doing here? What have you been up to? Come in and take a seat, the three of you.” As he said this in a clear. Well-spoken English voice, he caught a sight of Seth and raised his left eyebrow. Re asking his last question, silently in his head.

“Well, Mike. My girlfriend, her brother and I were caught in a fire at their house. We were sent to see you and get a ‘check-up’ if you know what i mean.” The doctor kept nodding his head in understanding.

“Ok, so who is going first?” he asked looking across our faces.

“Leah? Do you want to go first?” Jacob asked me, i just shrugged and nodded.

“Ok, Jake if you go out with...”


“Ok, Seth and i will have a run over Leah.”

As Jacob and Seth exited the door, i mounted the big leather chair. The doctor came over with a thermometer and stuck it in my mouth before i could object or think of an excuse to why i couldn’t let him see my temperature. I could see he was muttering something under his breath. However, he then walked out the room and heard him asking Jacob a question: “Is she a... too?”

Jacob responds with, “Oh, yeah sorry.”

The doctor enters back into the room and writes many things on a piece of paper attached to a clipboard. He asks me a series of questions, and then confirms that i am fine; in my state.

It took him the same amount of time for him to do Seth and then Jacob. I sat in Jacobs’s seat outside and watched all the people pass through the hospital. Once we were finished, we said good-bye and thank you to the doctor but then caught a taxi back to our house dreading what we might find.

At The Clearwater House...

As i got out the taxi, i looked up at the house. Nothing had changed on the outside! It looked fine. I suddenly felt a huge weight taken off my shoulders, i turned to help Jacob and Seth out the taxi (their height was a disadvantage, when coming out of taxis) they both looked up at the house and gasped. I think they were expecting what i was.

“Let’s go inside. See the real damage.” Jacob said. As we walked inside, we saw the dark burn marks crawling up the side of the hall wall. However, the living room was untouched, and the kitchen was exactly how i left it last night. How Strange.

I went upstairs to see that hell broke loose. The hall was mostly black; you could see a few spots of the original colour. My jaw fell open, i had not realised until Jacob came up behind me and closed it for me. He wrapped his arms around my waist and kissed my cheeks.

“Don’t worry Leah. Do you know what started it?” he asked me.

I shook my head, i did not. Did he?

“Do you know?” i asked, turning in his arms and wrapping mine around his neck.

“No i don’t, sorry.” He apologised.

“Come here.” I pull his head to mine and gave him a kiss. He pulled me tighter into him.

“What was that for?” he asked once we broke apart.

“Because, i love you and a thank you for everything you have done in the past morning.” I said smiling.

“Well, i love you more and it was only getting you and Seth a doctor.” He said

“Well, thank you.” I said resting my head on his chest and swaying us slightly, i could feel him kiss my hair then smile into it.
