Quil's Point.Of.View.

Today Me, Claire, Jacob, and Embry were going to the movie theatre to watch Marley & Me. Sure me and the guys wanted to watch a different movie, but Claire wanted to watch Marley & Me so that was that. She invited them so she gets to pick... is what she said. And for me, i can't deny her anything, so Marley & Me it is.

"At what time does the movie start?" Embry asked, flipping through the channels of my t.v.

"7:45" I answered, grabbing a towel from the dryer in the laundary room and heading into the bathroom to take a shower.

"I'm taking a shower i'll be out in ten minutes" I called out to Embry and Jacob.

I had just gotten back from patrol. Neither Jacob nor Embry had patrol tonight so they were both ready to go. It was bearly 6:30 so I had plenty of time to get ready and pick up Claire from Sam and Emily's, considering that they only live down the street from me. Claire was spending the rest of her summer down here in La Push. She had three weeks left to go. She had already been here for a week. Claire now lives with her parent in Heights View about four hours away. They moved to Heights View eight months ago. They say that they really like it there, so I guess that they won't be moving back. I visit Claire every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday from the time that she gets out of school: 2:36 to dinner time: 6:30. That's the schedule that her parents gave me. And i'm ok with it.. for now.

So anyways, I showered, lotioned up, put on deodorant got dressed in skinny jeans, not too skinny ofcourse, a red fitted t-shirt and red and white vans. I put a little bit of gel on my hair and pulled it back into a ponytail, sprayed some cologne on and was ready in 30 minutes.

"Alright, let's go" I said as i walked into the livingroom.

Embry turned the t.v. off and he and Jacob got up and walked outside to my truck. I turned the lights off, grabbed my keys and locked the door. I unlocked the truck and got in, Jake sat in the passenger seat and Embry got in the back, but not without fighting about who gets to sit in the front first. I drove us to Sam and Emily's and we all got out. It was now 7:08, so we still had a little time to spare.

As soon as i took a step into the livingroom i heard Claire yell "Quil!" excitedly as she ran over to me and jumped into my arms.

"Claire!" I yelled mimicking her and spinning her in a hug. I set her down and tickled her.

"Stop" She said laughing. I stopped.

"Did you miss me?" I asked.

I didn't get to see her yesterday because Emily had taken her out of town on a shopping trip and by the time that they got back I had to go on patrol.

"Yeah" She said.

"I missed you too" I said.

She smiled and said hi to Jake and Embry. Next Sam and Emily came downstairs. Everybody said their hey's and we talked for about fifteen minutes and then said our goodbye's.

I helped Claire into her car seat and then we headed for the movie theatre.

When we got there we paid for our tickets, bought some popcorn, soda, and candy and we all headed for the theatre room.

After the movie. We were all walking to the car.

"That was so sad" Jacob said pretending to cry.

"Aww please don't cry uncle Jacob" Claire said genuinely caring.

Me and Embry laughed.

"But Marley died" Jacob cried.

"No, it was just a movie, he didn't really die" Claire said.

"I know but it was just so sad" Jake said.

"Please don't cry uncle Jake" Claire said about ready to cry aswell.

"Ok" Jacob said wiping fake tears and sniffling.

We got to the car and climbed in.

"Where to next?" I asked.

"Let's go to Mcdonalds" Embry suggested from the back.

"Yeah!" Claire yelled excitedly. I chuckled.

"Mcdonalds it is" I said.

We got there and ordered and picked a booth to sit at.

"So, how's Nessie?" I asked Jake.

"She's good, growing up fast, literally" He chuckled.

I laughed.

"How old does she look now?" Embry asked.

"She looks about ten or eleven" Jacob answered.

"Wow" I said. "I haven't seen her in a while"

"Yeah, me niether, how come you stopped bringing her around?" Embry asked.

"I brought her over to Sam, and Emily's just yesterday, you guys were out on patrol" Jacob said.

"Oh" Me and Embry laughed.

"How come Nessie didn't come today, Uncle Jake?" Claire asked.

"Because Alice toke her shopping" Jacob answered.

"Oh yeah, bra shopping" Embry laughed and Jake blushed a litlle.

"Real mature" Jacob said.

"What's bra shopping?" Claire asked. I blushed, Embry and Jake laughed.

"Order 282" I heard our order number being called.

"I'll get it" I said getting up and bringing our food over.

Phew! I was saved from one embarrassing moment, i wonder how many more are to come.
