It was before dinner one very stormy night, when I received a very frantic phone call from Collin.
"Hold on." I told him. "Slow down. I can't understand a word that you're saying right now. Run that by me again."
Collin took a deep breath and began again. "Jacob just called me. Seth imprinted."
My eyes went wide. "Seth did what now?" Could it really be true? Could he have finally got the thing he wanted most, the thing he deserved more than anyone?
"He imprinted!" Collin yelled with glee. "He can go back to being his old happy self again. This is great! Best new is the world!"
"Who is she?" I asked. This was so exciting. "What's she like? When do I get to meet her?"
"Her name's Erin Morgan." Collin began. "She's lived in Forks for only a year. She's from Astoria, Oregon. She's an artist, she's nice, and she's got absolutely no friends."
"Well, we'll soon fix that." I said, grinning my face off. "So, when do I get to meet her." I knew I had already asked that, but it was never answered. Collin was just too excited for his best friend.
"No idea." he replied. "Look though, I gotta go out on patrol sadly enough. I'll talk to you later, okay?"
"Okay." I said, a tiny bit sad that he had to go. Well, maybe more than a tiny bit. "Tell Seth I said congratulations."
"I will." he promised. "Night."
"Good night." I said, hanging up the phone. I sat it down and then began to dance around my room with glee.
"Yes!" I shouted, jumping up and down. "Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!"
Faith ran into my room. "What?" she asked, staring at me. "What? What's going on? What happened?"
I ran over to her, picked her up, and spun her around. "Seth imprinted!" I cheered.
"Yes!" Faith shouted. "This is the best news ever!"
I put Faith back on the ground and we just jumped around. We were both so excited and giddy.
"What's all the ruckus?" Dad asked, poking his head into my room suddenly.
Faith and I immediately stopped jumping up and down and simultaneously said, "Nothing."
Dad frowned. "Uh huh… Well, come on. It's dinner time." He left us, heading straight for the kitchen.
"What's her name?" Faith asked me, picking up the phone so she could place it back on the charger later.
"Erin Morgan." I answered. "But, come on. We better eat."
We hadn't even made it halfway through dinner when the phone rang. Mom got up to get it and returned moments later.
"Seth Clearwater for you dear." she said, handing me the phone.
I took it and answered. "Hello."
"Hey, Scout." Seth said. He sounded super happy. "I know Collin already told you, but I had to talk to you myself."
I chuckled. "I'm really happy."
"She's just amazing." he gushed. "I think you guys will be great friends."
"I hope so." I said. "Have you told her yet?"
"No, but I will tomorrow. I'll let you get back to dinner though. I'll talk to you later, all right?"
"Okay, bye." I hung up the phone and set it down on the table.
"Well, what was that all about?" Dad asked me.
"Oh, nothing." I answered.
Mat frowned. "You and Collin and Seth and them always act so weird."
"Yeah." Mal agreed. "You're always whispering and they always go running off somewhere."
"Don't say it's a teenager thing." Mat said. "I'm thirteen. I don't do any of that weird stuff."
"Ugh." I groaned. "What business is it of yours?"
"It's strange." Mal said.
"Okay, okay." Mom said. "That is enough. Mal, Mat, leave Scout alone. She's right. What she and her friends do is none of your concern."
"That's right." Dad agreed.
"But, speaking of Scout's friends, we've all been invited to Karen's wedding next week." Mom announced. "Scout, you're allowed to bring Collin if you like."
Karen's wedding? Oh no. I'd have to see Harm. This would not end well at all. Especially if I brought Collin. I didn't see any way out of it though,
"Okay." I said, faking a smile. "I'll tell him later."
I ate the rest of my dinner, feeling queasy. This was going to be oodles and oodles of fun. Not.
