Chapter 1:

That's it I'm going to his house I don't care if I have to wait for him all day I'm going to find out why Jake is ignoring me and not answering my calls. I jumped in my sturdy old truck and pushed it to its limit, a riveting 50 miles per hour as I crossed over into the woods just outside La Push.

Wait? Is that someone walking? Who is that?

"Quil? What are you doing on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere." When he looked at me the bleak, empty look on his face scared me even more then it surprised me seeing him on the side of the road.

"Oh. Hey Bella," He said in a dull voice

"Hi Qui... A-Are you okay?"

He just stared at me, "Fine."

"Could I give you a ride somewhere?"

"Yeah. Sure, I guess," he mumbled.

"My house is just inside town. Its behind the store."

"Have you seen Jacob at all today?" I honestly did not mean to ask , but the question burst from my lips before I could stop it.

I looked at him hopefully, waiting for his answer. He was quiet for a long moment.

"From a distance," he said finally.

"A distance?"

"I tried to follow them – He was with Embry," His voice was quiet, hard to hear over the sound of the engine I leaned closer in anticipation, "I know they saw me, but they just turned and went into the woods. The weren't alone though. Sam and his little cult were with them."

I've been walking through the woods for an hour yelling for them. I just found the road when you pulled up."

"So Sam did get him then," I said gritting my teeth making my words distorted. Yeah it was the teeth not the fact that I had a lump the size of a golf ball in my throat and tears in my eyes.

Quil glanced at me, "You know about that?"

"Yeah Jake told me... before."

"Before..." He looked pained.

"He never leaves Sam's side. He's just as bad as the others now."

"What do you think it is? Drugs or something?"

"I really don't see Jacob or Embry getting into anything like that... but what do I know?What else could it be? And why aren't the elders worried?" He shook his head the fear showing in his eyes, "Jake didn't want to join them. I don't understand what could change him," He looked at me haunted," I don't want to be next."

"Well, Are your parents any help?"

"Yeah right my grandpa's on the council with Jacob's old man. As far as they are concerned Samuel Uley is the best thing that's ever happened here."

I didn't know what to say. I could barely think. It was all to much to take in. We were in La Push now and I could see the towns only store up ahead.

"I'll get out now. My house is right over there."He said pointing to a rickety old house up ahead. I coasted to the side of the road and came to a stop.

"I'm going to wait for Jacob," I stated staring straight ahead.

"Good luck," He shuffled down the road his shoulders slumped. Defeated is the word that came to mind as I pulled away.

Quil's face haunted me all the way to the Black's house.
