**Vampires and Wolves- Happy Holidays**
I glanced over at the place where the bloodsucker was. He was still facing the other direction. I didn't know why, but this seriously frustrated me. I wanted to see his face. Why did I want to see his face? Nine years after Breaking Dawn, the werewolf pack has gotten much bigger. When one werewolf girl, Harley, imprints on a vampire, everything begins to fall apart.
1. Leech Party
Rating 4/5 Word Count 1228 Review this Chapter
I didn’t wasn’t to go to this party because of a werewolf named Jake. We used to be really close, but then he imprinted on a girl named Alicia and left me. Jake was going to be there with Alicia, and I didn’t want to face them. Leah wasn’t looking forward to the party for the same kind of reasons. She and Sam used to be together too. Then he imprinted on Emily and left her. Neither of us were very happy about losing our boyfriends.
I stood up and walked out of my room. I walked straight out the door toward the spot where Alice Cullen was supposed to pick me up. There she was, sitting in her yellow Porsche 911 Turbo. “Hey, Alice,” I said darkly. She grinned. “There’s been a breakthrough,” she said. “I can see your future! Anyone’s future. Half-breeds, werewolves, anyone!” I shot her a fake smile. She breathed out. “Well,” she said. “This is going to be awkward.” I laughed. “Oh, come on, Alice, you aren’t that bad.” She grinned. “Well, Harley,” she said. “If you’re out of the awkward position, we’ll go.” I smiled and got in the car. “I’m okay with bloodsuckers,” I explained. “It’s the party. Leah and I would rather not go.” Alice was driving quickly down the highway toward the leech cave. I frowned. “Go slower,” I said sternly. She growled. “We’re here.” She swung around a corner onto a dirt road. At the end was a white house. “So this is the leech cave,” I said. “It’s big.” She smiled. “The others are already here.”
I got out of the car and ran to the open door. “Hey,” I said when Seth appeared at the door. He smiled. “Have an eggnog and come meet the new bloodsucker,” he said, handing me a glass of eggnog. He grabbed my hand and led me into the main room. The new bloodsucker was facing the opposite wall. I couldn’t see him. I tried to look around, to see his face, but I still couldn’t see his face. I shrugged and walked over to where my best friends, Nellie, Allison, and Lily were. “Hey,” I said, but my thoughts were still on the other bloodsucker. Who was he? And why was I so obsessed on finding out who he was? I frowned. I was confused. I wanted to get out of here, but at the same time I didn’t. I glanced over at the place where the bloodsucker was. He was still facing the other direction. I didn’t know why, but this seriously frustrated me. I wanted to see his face. Why did I want to see his face?
I walked over to where he was. “I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I really want to see you,” I said. “And I-” Then he turned around. He was so beautiful. His eyes were a bright ocean blue. Vampires didn’t have blue eyes! Did I really say vampire? I didn’t care. All I could think about was him. “Blue,” I said to myself. Sam choked on his eggnog. Embry laughed so hard his came out his nose. Jake dropped his glass and it shattered on the coffee table. All of a sudden, it all came to me. I suddenly realized that I had imprinted.
I tried not to think about him. But no matter how hard I tried, it always came back to him. I hate leeches. I told myself. My heart was telling me something else. You love him. I gave up. What I had said alarmed me. Blue? I had all the romantic things to say and I said blue? “What?” he asked. His voice was like music. “Nothing,” I said. “Just your eyes.” I frowned and walked over to where my best friends were. They knew what had happened. “Wow,” Nellie said. “Guess you’re over Jake.” Jake? Oh, yeah, him. Who cares? Edward laughed. “Very impressive thoughts,” he said sarcastically. I rolled my eyes. “Whatever, leech.” All of a sudden, leech, parasite, and bloodsucker didn’t seem like they fit the Cullens. There was one word that really came to mind when I saw them (and I will deny this): beautiful.
Edward burst out laughing. “To think I’d hear that in the thoughts of a dog!” I spun around. “Sorry, Harley,” he said. “I just never thought I’d ever hear you think that.” I grinned. I was smiling? At a vampire? Did I say vampire again? “Hey, Harley,” Nellie said. “When are you gonna tell him?” I shook my head. “Ben? Not me. Alice is gonna do it.” She frowned. “You mean the psychic leech?” I nodded. “Yeah. Alice will do anything for me. She’s very… hospitable.” Allison laughed. “I believe you, but I’d never trust a bloodsucker,” she said. “I hate those parasites.” Nellie punched her in the arm. “Harley just imprinted on one of your hated parasites, and if you don’t stop talking about them she’ll punch you in the face.” I smiled. “Naw,” I said. “I’m in love with a leech. My problem.”
Nellie grinned. “Now that sounds like Harley,” she said. “I thought you’d given up on us, like Bella.” Bella looked at us. She frowned. “I’m a leech now,” she said flatly. “Would you rather me be dead?” Allison opened her mouth to speak, but Nellie punched her again. “Allison will not say what she’s thinking right now,” Nellie said. Edward shook his head. “Okay, dog, stop thinking what you’re thinking,” he said. “It’s giving me a headache.” Allison glared at him. “Allison,” Edward said. “Stop.” She frowned and looked at the floor. I looked over at Ben. He didn’t know what had happened; he didn’t know he’d found a true soul mate. He probably had a girl of his own… I frowned. “Harley,” Edward said. “Her name is Tia. But Ben’s about to find out what Tia really likes about him, and it’s only his power.”
Tia? Tia?! Tia?!?!?!?! I knew it! But… Edward did say she didn’t like him for who he was… How dare she hurt him like that?! Edward patted my back. “Calm down, Harley,” he said. “It isn’t the end of the world.” I shivered. He was cold. “So is Ben. You’ll get used to it.” Get used to what? Ben’s cold granite body? I frowned. “This isn’t right,” I mumbled. “Life isn’t right,” Edward said back. “If it was, we wouldn’t be here.”
