The drive to Forks is long and tedious. At least I don't have to worry about stopping for food or for the restroom like the rest of the drivers on the highway. I'm heading back to be with my family. For the last four years I have been spending time with our "cousins" in Denali, Alaska. My family is made up of three mated couples: Carlisle and Esme, Rosalie and Emmett, and Alice and Jasper. I have always been the odd man out. When I decided to leave for a little while, I did so selfishly. I couldn't stand to be around all of that love and devotion when I have no one that I can share those things with. Sometimes being able to read people's minds isn't as glamorous as everyone thinks, in fact, most of the time it isn't. I have lived for over 100 years without my mate. I know she is out there somewhere, but as I head back to Forks, Washington to act out life as a high school senior I'm not sure I will ever find her.
