I sniffed the air tentatively. It smelled like half-leech and leech all mixed together, new scents that I did not know. They were close. Nahuel and Renesmee were standing side by side, and his arms were protectively around her and the bundle she held. Jacob in wolf form stood in front of them with Edward and Bella, ready to attack at a moments notice. Esme and Carlisle were at the head of our group, the plan was to try and talk calmly, before any battle need be fought. Emmett, Rosalie, Alice and Jasper stood at their sides, bodies poised and frozen like statues ready to protect their parents if need be. Our pack was scattered around the field, the field that was always used for battles or expected battles. Tonight was no different.

Leah, go home, I'd feel safer if you were there
, Jacob's voice said in my head worriedly.
No can do, this is where I'm meant to be, I replied and I knew Jacob was upset with my answer but there was no way I could leave him and Seth to battle without me. They both meant the world to me, the other members of our pack too. I would never leave them, my family. A group of figures walked towards us and we tensed with anticipation.

The time had come and this time we all knew that a battle was inevitable.
