It was three hours and forty-five minutes from rainy Forks to Seattle, which was way too much time to think.

Whenever I think too much, it always wanders back to him… but it did give me a chance to plan what I was going to do.

I decided that I’ll try to get a flight to Denali, and when I arrive there, I can check all the very remote locations I can find.

I knew I didn’t have to go into the towns around there or anything because, being vampires, they wouldn’t want to live somewhere in the open.

As I pulled into the Seattle-Tacoma airport, it was about eight o’clock in the morning. I parked my truck towards the back of the parking lot and walked into the main building.

The woman at the ticket desk greeted me as I walked unsurely up to her.

“Can I help you Miss?” she asked nicely.

“Um, yeah, I need to get to Denali, Alaska. Do you have any flights to there?” I asked hopefully.

“Hold on a moment, please,” she said as she typed it into her computer. “Well, it seems we don’t have a flight to Denali. However, there is a flight that goes to Denali from Bellingham International Airport at 10:30am. To get there driving, it takes about an hour and a half. I‘m sorry that we don‘t have a flight here, but would you like me to book the flight at BLI for you? If you start now, you can make it there in plenty of time,” she finished.

“Um, yeah, I guess that’ll be alright. Do I pay here or there?” I asked.

“Here is fine. What class do you want to fly in?” she asked.

“Coach is fine,” I answered quickly.

“Alright, your ticket costs 120 dollars,” she said looking away from the computer.

I handed her the money and asked if I got the ticket at BLI and she said yes, so I muttered a quick thanks and went out to my truck.

? POV

I smelled her as I was walking through the airport. I’d rarely ever met someone that smells so good. She obviously wasn’t aware of my presence.

I’m not sure, but I think she is my target. Who else could it be? I thought silently. I had been told she would be in this area, but I didn’t think she’d be at the airport of all places.

I heard the woman at the ticket desk tell the girl that she’d have to catch a flight at BLI. The girl looked slightly upset, but got a ticket for that flight. She started walking out to the parking lot.

I started trailing her outside. I was almost positive that this was the girl, but I had to make sure, or I’d be in trouble.

Plus, I thought to myself, I could have some fun trailing her. I laughed and started running a little behind her old truck, keeping to the trees on the side of the road.

Bella POV

I left the Sea-Tac airport an hour ago, and I was half an hour from the Bellingham airport. It had been a boring ride.

Especially with no radio, I thought to myself.

I remembered when I tore it out, perfectly. I’d been so mad. I’d done it because he had gotten it for me and he had just left at that time. I sighed and stared at the road ahead of me.

Suddenly, I thought I saw a dark flash move in the forest ahead of me, on the side of the road. I watched the spot until I passed it, and I knew it was probably nothing.

However, my tired mind got the best of me and I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was being watched after that. However, I didn’t see the mysterious flash again.
******

I pulled into the parking lot of the airport, grabbed my bag and went inside. I got my ticket and sat down in the waiting room outside of the terminal where my plane was docked.

Great, I thought to myself. I have about a half hour until my plane takes off, and I have absolutely nothing to do. I sighed quietly.

I was staring mindlessly around looking for something to do, when a very handsome man with dark eyes and black hair, sat down a little ways away from me. He smiled at me and I saw that there was something familiar about him, but I couldn’t place it. I didn’t think I knew him, but the familiarity stayed the more I thought about it…

At that moment, as if trying to interrupt my thoughts, the overhead speaker came on and announced my flight was boarding, so I let my previous thoughts about the man drift away as I began thinking about what I would do when I finally found the Denali clan.
