Emmett growled lowly and placed me on the ground, pushing me behind him as he got in Jake's face, "Now look at what you've done you mongrel! Do you wanna explain to him and make him run away again?"
"Again? What the hell are you talking about bloodsucker?" Jake sneered, looking annoyed but still curious. Aw jeez, I didn't want to reapeat my life story. I still had little nightmares every other night, I didn't need to have them for a week straight! "Would someone just please tell me what the heck is going on here?" I demanded, stomping my foot on the ground and crossing my arms. I'm sure it looked funny, me, a little five year old kid, glaring up at these two huge teenagers firmly as if I were their parent.
Emmett shot Jake another glare and then put a hand on my shoulder, gently nudging me to the house, "C'mon sport, lets call a family meeting and then we'll explain." he sighed reluctantly, sneering at my new found friend as we neared the house. I could see the rest of the family gathering in the living room through the large glass windows, Alice and Jasper sitting on the couch, Mommy and Carlisle standing next to them and Rose waiting for Emmett by the door.
"Hold on leech, I'm not letting him stay with you alone, I'm coming too!" Jake sneered, right on mine and Emmett's heals. Emmett growled and I could feel him tensing as he took my hand and walked faster while I tried my best to keep up with him. I blinked and suddenly I was in Rose's arms, "Get your disgusting stench away from him you mangey mutt!" she hissed, actually hissed! Just like those three vampires I met in the woods... NonononononononoNO! The Cullens were good, I had to remember that, they had golden eyes so they must drink animal blood, just like in Carlisle's story!
I froze as Jake started to shake with rage, and I mean shake. "Jacob, DON'T!" I heard Carlisle yell from the front door. D-don't what? I huddled closer to Rose automatically. Hey, at least I knew what she was and what she ate, but I had no idea what Jake's story was! And I really didn't want to in all honesty.
There was a loud ripping sound as Jake growled and jumped forward, forming into something I'd never thought possible. One minute my new friend was standing before me. Now he had been replaced with a big reddish-brown wolf that stood taller than Emmett, growling menacingly.
I'm asleep. I'm asleep. I'm asleep. I'm asleep. I'm asleep. This wasn't real. I'm asleep.
Carlisle was suddenly standing between us and the wolf, "Jacob, please, you're frightening Edward. Please phase back, and you're certainly welcome to join us and explain to Edward about all of this." he said calmly, unphased by the fact that he was standing in front of a big werewolf. The wolf huffed and glanced at my terrified face for along moment before trudging into the nearby trees. I followed him with my eyes, never lifting my head from under Rosalie's chin. A few seconds later Jake came back out in a pair of denim shorts and Nike sneakers.
"Lets get this over with." he grunted.
"So... you're vampires... and the guys from the reservation are werewolves?" I repeated. Carlisle nodded, "Exactly. I'm sorry we didn't tell you sooner Edward, but we wanted to make sure that you knew that we were trust worthy first."
"Are you scared sweetheart?" Emse asked softly, puting a hesitant hand on my head. I shrugged, "Honestly... I don't know what I feel." I said softly. This was all so confusing. Should I be scared? Sad? Angry? Jasper sighed and put his hand on his head, "Think you could make up your mind sport? All these emotion changes are driving me crazy." I blinked, "Huh?"
"Most of us have special powers," Alice said, "I can see the future, Jasper can feel and manipulate emotions, and Emmett is stronger than any of us." I nodded slowly. So much to learn. "And... you guys feed off of animals right?" I asked.
Emmett nodded, "Thats right."
I looked at Jake, "What about you? Is everyone on the reservation a werewolf?"
"No. Just me and the guys you met at the house, except for Emily." Jacob said.
"But when you guys saved me from the bad vampires it was still kind of light out, but you were already wolves." I pointed out. Jacob chuckled, "We don't change on the night of a full moon. We can change when ever we want to pretty much. But just make sure that you stay clear of us when we get mad." he warned, giving me a dead serious look. I gulped and nodded.
"Can I please go to bed now? I'm real tired." I said. It was true, I really was tired. This was a long day for me.
Carlisle nodded, "Go on and get ready for bed. I'll be up in a minute." I hopped off the couch and went upstairs to my room, pulling my pajam out. All I wanted to do was crawl under the covers and pass out. And thats exactly what I did.
I woke up to the mouth watering smell of chocolate chip pancakes and bacon. I blinked my eyes open and sat up, looking around. It was foggy out, so thick I could barely see the trees only a few feet away from my window. I got out of bed and went downstairs to the kitchen, my stomach rumbling loudly. Jasper, Emmett, and Esme all looked at me cautiously as I walked in, like they expected me to scream and run fo rthe hills. I rolled my eyes, "I'm not scared of you."
Short chapter I know, and so so sorry for taking so long. Btw got a new really cute fick up, its a Twilight Coraline crossover story, and I think you'll really like it. Plus I need some ideas for what kind of magical wonders the other mother could do for edward. So, if you think of anything then let me knnow please!
