"Sam, I understand that we have a responsibility here. I just can't stop thinking about her. She needs help. I hate to say it but even if the Cullen's would be here for her I would feel somewhat at ease. She's all alone. We just released a new vampire out into the world. That is not the protector's way!" A thin shiver crept down my spine as I attempted to talk some sense into Sam.

"You do have a point, Jake. Perhaps we should send out a hunting party for Bella and leave the newer of the pack here to protect our land. Bella is our responsibility. Besides, I don't think that the younger ones could handle being around Bella. But how do WE protect a vampire from being what she is meant to be?"

I relaxed a little as I knew that Sam had finally given in. Bella needed us, that was certain. As for how we're gonna reach her in time, that is another question. And to think the unthinkable, what if we find Bella, but it is too late? How will Sam react? What will he do?

"Thank you, Sam. I appreciate this. I can't shake this feeling that Bella is in trouble. This is probably the hardest time of her life and she is all alone."

Sam looked at me, shaking his head. "Jake, you have made a very valid point. She is our responsibility and not only should we protect her but we should also make sure that she makes the right choices."

That was the climatic moment. I could no longer stay calm.

"Sam we will not hurt her! She didn't choose this life. It isn't her fault that we were late," I hollered at Sam. How dare he insinuate that we stop her in such a way?

"Jake, I am not saying that we kill her. I am merely suggesting that she is like a child and we are like parents, protecting her and helping her to make the right decisions. She needs guidance. Jake, CALM DOWN! It was you who's brought this my attention. She may not even appreciate choosing the Cullen way. She may despise them so much that she will reject all that they are; including their vegetarian ways." Sam's eyes pierced my skin and his tone was very authoritarian.

"I'm sorry Sam. I understand that she's our responsibility. I am simply stating that I cannot, will not harm Bella if it has to come to that. Instead of standing around arguing, let's go find her." I couldn't spend anymore time contemplating Bella's fate.

"As you wish, Jake. Just keep in mind that Bella will be different when we see her. Be prepared. She will not be the same quiet and fragile Bella. And she will be making attempts to break out of those barriers."

I took in Sam's words of wisdoms as I packed a bag of extra clothes. He was right as was I. Bella needed our assistance but she wasn't some person who always needed to be rescued. She may not appreciate my empty assumption that I can just rush in and rescue her. Perhaps if I join her in her lonely mission she'll be more willing to accept my companionship.

I met Sam by the edge of the town as we morphed into a more suitable form for tracking Bella. I found Sam in my mind and told him the coordinates of where I could sense Bella had gone. Her scent was off somehow, musked by a sticky sweet vampire odor. I could track her. This sent a wave of relief through me and I focused more on finding her. There was a journey ahead of us.
