When I got back, there was a note stuck to the fridge.
Everyone has gone hunting. Be back later. BEHAVE! Wolf pack nearby. Any visions, call for help. We don't want this house blown up too. See you soon! Love Alice, Jasper, Embry, Alec, Bella, Nessie, and Esme (the rest say hi!).
I laughed. Well, at least I could get some stuff for Demon's house. But first, my secret. I had to deal with it soon because if I didn't, I'd chicken out. No! I had to tell them, when they came back! Right. I would. Definitely. It was the right thing to do. I just had absolutely no idea how they'd handle it. But if I didn't tell them, eventually one of them would work it out, they're no thick. Right, think about Demon. It's raining out there. He'll be getting wet. I gathered up some stuff, including a tarpaulin, which I figured I could use to cover him. He was a big dog. Maybe...no. he couldn't be.
"Hey Cady" I jumped.
"I thought everyone had gone!"
"No. Rafe and I stayed behind. We don't have to hunt, except on full moons remember?"
"Yes, and you are not hunting on the full moon because there would be a significant decrease in citizens. Where's Gabriel and Natasha?"
"They...went to the beach. I think they're thinking of leaving. They lasted for years in the wild on their own but now...I think they're..."
"No way! I mean, she's so quiet and Gabriel's kind of strong minded"
"They are the perfect match for each other. Like Holly and I" he kissed her.
"Ewww...animal love. Keep that up and Jasper will have you neutered!"
"He's not my dad!" Holly said, "He's yours!"
"Like that'll stop me. Now, I've got to get rid of this stuff" I gestured to the pile of stuff I'd gathered.
"What's that for?"
"Well, we'll help you carry it"
"No! I need...air. And peace"
"Fine" they turned and left me alone. I took the stuff out to Demon's hiding place and set it up nicely.
"There you go boy. A nice little house until I can find a reason for you to become part of my family for real. Now settle down" among the items was an old mixing bowl that had been bent over and had the word FIDO scratched into the side. I had to ask Alice about that. But later. I had to go home, so I could talk to everyone when they got in.
Three hours later, the family finally arrived back. For some reason, Alec and Embry weren't with them.
"Hey guys? I need to talk to you. Where's Alec and Embry?"
"They started getting competitive so they decided, the first one to get a mountain lion won"
"But Embry doesn't eat mountain lion"
"No, but he can still kill one"
"Right. Well, can you guys sit down? I have to tell you something quite important"
"You're leaving?" asked Rosalie, sounding excited.
Everyone laughed and I scowled at her.
"No. you're going to have to put up with me for a bit longer. Anyway...guys...I'm..."
