I stood at the end of the cliff looking down on the waters below, as they thrashed within the deep depths, the blackness looked so inviting. Tonight was probably not the best night but i couldn’t hold this anger and frustration in any longer. I put my hands out in front of me and closed my eyes, while i leant forward. The thrill i felt as the air pushed against me as i dropped was exhilarating. I hit the water neatly and floated beneath it all. It felt as if every thought about my life was washed away, it all went silent as i kept my eyes tightly closed. The only thought that kept reoccurring behind my closed lids was the face of the princess, asleep on the top of that cliff. I suddenly felt a pull on my arm, she was still asleep but if she weren’t, how would she know where to find me?

I opened my eyes to see a slightly fuzzy man, tugging harshly on my arm, pulling me in a direction he was set in. I went reluctantly with him in his direction. As i saw above the water was getting lighter and lighter until i broke the surface. I heaved an enormous gasp letting splats of water but mostly air flood into my strained lungs. I could feel the burn as it all went down. I was being pulled sideways to the beach, once we reached the beach, a thunderous crash let out above me; rain began to fall down heavily. Leah! I raised and started to run for the cliffs until i felt a heavy object land on top of me and knock me to the ground, i fell with a humph.

“What the hell are you playing at Black?” spoke the object as it climbed off me.

“What?” was all i could think of other than Leah.

“Don’t you ever pull a stupid stunt like that again!” they spoke again. Once I really listened to them, i noticed the voice had to belong to Embry.

“Embry? What? Why? Where?” i could not get one sentence out, i had too many conjuring up in my head,

“I saw you jump, you looked desperate to fall!” he explained while we walked up to the top of the hill.

“No! I am with Leah... Leah!” i suddenly remembered her asleep on the top of the cliff.

“Hold on! Leah is in there too!” Embry asked. I shook my head but continued to run.

“She is... at the top... of the...cliff, asleep...” i managed to say. He understood and we both ran against the rain beating in the opposite direction. We reached the cliff top to see Leah still asleep. I dived to her; i covered her face with my body and sheltered her from the rain. I lifted her limp sleeping body from the ground and ran with Embry on my heels.

Once i ran to my house that was closer to the cliffs than Sam’s was. I burst in the door, went straight to my bedroom, and laid the sleeping Leah on my bed. Embry pulled the covers over her and walked back out the room. He went and got a towel and another blanket for Leah. He passed me the towel and wrapped Leah in the blanket. I pulled on dry shorts and handed Embry a pair too. We went through to the living room. I fell backwards onto the sofa, i didn’t turn the T.V. on; i just sat there, replaying this afternoon over and over, like a broken film. I leant forward and put my head in my hands; i couldn’t believe i just risked the love of my life. Embry sat down next to me, and patted me on the back.

“Dude? What are you thinking? What is going on in that head of yours?” he asked me but was not looking at me instead, he was looking at the floor.

“Embry. Everything has gone wrong. I was meant to be happy with my imprint for the rest of my life. I have now figured out that i actually don’t love her anymore, i love the girl lying in my bed next door.” I spilled the can; i didn’t want to hide anything away from anyone anymore. I was going to be completely honest with Embry.

“You love... Leah?” he asked incredulously, he looked at me for the first time since we sat in the living room. “So, your imprint should have been Leah?”

“That would have made everything so much bloody easier. I have liked her since i was just an innocent child that thought she was the world and more.” I didn’t raise my head to see his expression. I hadn’t realised until i heard her voice from the doorway that she had woken.

“You... love...me?” she asked completely shocked. Embry had gone silent. I quickly jolted up from my seat and walked towards her.
