Alright, I know I haven't updated in like a year…literally. Almost a year. I'll have an explanation at the bottom of the page! But thanks for sticking with me.
Summary of what's happened previously: Brady's imprint was in a little accident and was sent to the hospital-but she's fine now. Paul and Alex went to dinner with Paul's sister and Mom to meet Becky's boyfriend and brother. Alex was offered a position at the high school, she and Paul are planning to take a trip to Alaska for New Years. Dane and Les just forgave Paul and Alex for keeping the secret!

Chapter 26-Working On A Schedule
"We're here!" Paul called into Emily's house as he pushed open the door.
"Oh my God!" Quil shouted in mock excitement. "They're here! They're…Oh. It's just you," he finished with a smirk as Paul narrowed his eyes.
"Come on Paul," I said, grabbing his hand and pulling him towards the kitchen as he began his advance on Quil. "Hey Seth," I said as we walked in, leaning over and giving him a kiss on the cheek as I walked by. "How's it going Emily? Need any help with the cooking?" I asked as Paul sat down on the stool beside Seth.
"No, Kim already beat you to it," she said with a grin.
"Kim's here?" I asked, looking around. "Where is she?" I asked when I couldn't find her.
"She went out to grab something from her car," Sam said as he walked through the screen door, instantly wrapping her arms around Emily. "Jared just ran to catch up to her before she came inside-they might be out there for a while," he added with a smirk.
"Wow. I really didn't need to know that," Seth said, wrinkling his nose.
"Yeah Sam, he really didn't," Jared said as he and Kim walked into the kitchen. Sam just grinned and shrugged easily.
"Kendra!" Claire yelled from the living room just as we heard the door open.
"Wonder who's here," Kim muttered to me sarcastically as I laughed and Seth and Emily walked out of the kitchen.
"Has he told her yet?" Paul asked Sam curiously.
Sam shook his head. "Nope. Last time I patrolled with him he had no idea how he was going to do it. I offered to tell her for him but he wants to do it himself," Sam told us quietly.
"She'll probably like it better if he tells her," Kim said as I nodded along with her. Jared and Paul immediately looked alarmed.
"Wait, did you want me to tell you myself?" Jared asked Kim with wide eyes as Paul stared at me with his mouth hanging open.
"Well it probably would've been a bit easier," Kim admitted with a shrug. "I didn't really know Sam that well at the time so…Yeah, it definitely would've been easier if you told me," she said as Jared frowned.
"Alex?" Paul asked, pouting at me.
"Well…Yeah," I admitted reluctantly. "I probably would've believed you a bit quicker."
"Alex," Paul began seriously, taking my hand in his. "I…am a werewolf," he said dramatically looking away in 'shame.' I just rolled my eyes and laughed.
"You are such a dork," I said. "Now go in the living room and let me know when Les and Dane get here," I said, shooting him a smile. He grinned, giving me a kiss on the cheek before leaving the room with Jared behind him.
"Idiots," Kim said as we both laughed. "Hey Alex, can I talk to you about something?" Kim asked quietly once our laughter died down.
"Of course. What's going on?" I asked intently, leaning toward her.
She let out a quiet sigh. "So lately I've been thinking that Jared and I…Well I think we're ready to start…expanding the family if you know what I mean," she told me.
I let out a sigh of relief. "Oh thank God," I muttered to myself. "Come in the guest room with me," I told her before we silently slipped out of the kitchen. We quickly walked down the hallway and shut the guest room door behind us. "I've actually been thinking the same thing about Paul and I," I told her.
She let out a sigh of relief. "Finally; someone I can talk to about this ," she said thankfully. "Have you and Paul talked about it?" she asked curiously.
I shook my head. "Not really. I mean, we kind of talk about having kids but not really. What about you and Jared?" I asked.
"Same with us. I just don't know if he's ready yet. I mean, I think he's ready but I don't know if he thinks that," she told me.
"Yeah, I know what you mean. I've been thinking that I wanted it to be a surprise when it finally happens but now I'm not so sure," I admitted.
"Me too," Kim said with a frown. "I mean, I don't even think he notices that I'm…working on a schedule, you know?" she said, rolling her eyes as I laughed.
I let out a sigh. "They are so oblivious sometimes," I said, rolling my eyes again.
We both abruptly cut off our laughter as the door opened and Paul stuck his head in. "Dane and Les just pulled in the driveway," he told me easily.
"Okay, we're coming," I told him, shooting him a smile. He grinned back before shutting the door and making his way back down the hallway. I let out a sigh of relief. "That scared the shit out of me," I told, laughing shakily as she let out a snort.
"Maybe we should talk about this when we're not having a pack dinner," she said as we stood up and headed down the hallway.
I snorted. "You're probably right about that one," I said with a grin just as the door opened.
"Knock, knock," Les said as she, Dane, and Cassie walked in.
I quickly walked over and hugged each of them, turning to Kendra where she tucked snuggly under Embry's arm. "Kendra, this is my brother Dane, his wife Les, and their daughter Cassie," I told her. "Guys, this is Kendra. Embry's girlfriend," I said with grin, as a huge smile grew on Les' face.
"Nice to meet you-never thought I'd see the day where I met someone who could put up with Embry," Les said, walking over to give Kendra a hug.
"Eh, it's a work in progress," Kendra told her easily as Embry let out a huff and Dane shook her hand, Les shooting me an approving nod.
"So you know all about-"
"-Hey Les, Dane," Paul cut in before anyone could do anything other than widen their eyes at Dane's almost-slip. "Can you come in the kitchen a second? Emily wanted to show you something," he told them after a slight pause as color flooded back into Embry's face. He almost looked like he was going to be sick.
"Oh right. Good thinking Paul, I forgot about that," Emily said as she lead the two of them into the kitchen. "This will only take a second," she said as they disappeared.
I met Paul's eyes and exhaled in relief. "Thank you," I whispered to him quietly, leaning against his side.
"I didn't even think to remind them not to say anything before they left the house this morning," he told me, shaking his head.
I shook my head as I watched Embry suddenly pull Kendra through the kitchen and out the back door, sitting down on the steps to the back porch as everyone in the house leaned over where they were sitting to look at them curiously.
"Hey guys, what's going on?" Leah asked as she and Tony walked through the door, closely followed by Vi and Collin.
Quil's jaw suddenly dropped and he shot off the couch. "He's telling her!" he whisper-yelled to us as everyone jumped up from their places and ran into the kitchen, peeking at the couple from behind curtains while Seth and Quil poked their heads out by the sliding glass door.
"What are they saying? I can't hear anything!" Vi whispered loudly from the other side of the kitchen.
"Embry, just tell me. You're probably working yourself up over nothing," Leah whispered as I looked at her in confusion before realizing she was telling us what Kendra was saying.
"Maybe I am," Quil said, apparently speaking for Embry. "Our tribe, we have these legends about where our people come from. And it's said that we descend from wolves.
"Wolves?" Leah said as Kendra turned her head to stare at Embry who apparently refused to look at her.
"Yeah," Tony said. "And the wolves, they protected our people from these things called Cold Ones," Tony said as Embry nodded his head.
"What are those?" Seth said as Kendra tilted her head.
"Who cares what they are! Ask about the wolves!" Quil whispered loudly, as if he was trying to get Kendra to hear him.
"They're like vampires but a little bit different," Paul said quietly, shooting me a grin as I glance at him. "So, it's said that the descendants of the original wolves turn into wolves too to keep protecting La Push. Currently, there are ten wolves in La Push, most of them are actually inside the house behind us right now but one of them…is right here," Paul said as Embry's head dropped slightly, as if he was ashamed.
We watched silently as Kendra and Embry sat there for a minute, not saying anything.
"I know it sounds crazy," Sam began whispering suddenly, as I silently thanked the heavens that Embry started talking again. The anticipation was getting a little too thick in this kitchen. "But I would never lie to you Kendra. I really am a wolf-I'm gray actually, when I turn. And Sam, he's our alpha but so is Jake. It's really a long story and I'll explain it all to you-"
Sam abruptly cut himself off as Paul and the rest of the boys and Leah jumped in surprise. "What? What's happening?" Emily asked frantically as Kendra suddenly turned to Embry and started touching his chest and his face, her face looking completely panicked.
"Oh my God Embry. I almost hit you," Leah said, her own confusion saturating her voice as I furrowed my eyebrows. What? "Are you okay? I didn't actually touch you did I? Oh my God, Embry, I am so sorry. You just jumped out of nowhere-and thank God Dale put new brakes on the truck. I could've killed you. Oh my God, I'm so sorry," Leah continued as Sam all of a sudden started snorting with quiet laughter. We all looked at him and he just waved a hand at us, silently saying he would tell us about it later.
"You're not scared? Or…or mad?" Collin said quietly as Embry reached out and touched Kendra's face.
"Mad?" Quil said. "Why would I be mad? I almost hit you. I practically ran you over," Quil said, letting out a quiet snort himself. "And scared? Embry are you insane?"
"Yes," Seth cut in before Emily smacked the back of his head and Quil continued.
"You wouldn't hurt me and it's not like all this is your fault," Collin said. "Seriously though, the truck didn't hit you?"
"No, no I'm fine," Sam said as Embry spoke. "You're okay with it," he said as Embry stood up and pulled Kendra out into the yard, picking her up and spinning her around as I saw the rapid flashing of Emily's camera out of the corner of my eye.
"Okay, I am not saying that," Leah said in slight disgust as I watched Embry and Kendra continue talking to each other, guessing it was a little more lovey-dovey than anyone wanted to repeat.
"Just sum it up for us," I told them.
"He told her about imprinting," Seth told us.
"And Kendra wants Embry," Quil said, turning to all of us and wriggling his eyebrows. He let out a quiet wolf whistle before Claire smacked the back of his head.
"Shh!" she hissed as we watched Kendra cut Embry's ramble off by kissing him.
"They're taking too long," Quil decided, pulling open the screen door as several protests were heard from us girls. "Okay, I'm sorry to interrupt this love fest, but I couldn't help but over hear…you hit Embry with your truck?"
Alright, I hoped you all liked that-I know it's short but I'm trying to make it so that the next chapter in all the La Push series stories is going to be the Christmas chapter.
I know it's been a really long time but this past year we found out that my sister has cancer. So…yeah, it's been really stressful and I also do a ton of sports and after school activities.
It's summer now so hopefully I'll be able to occasionally write something while I'm stuck at my Dad's house. So I'm going to try and finish what I've started even though I don't really like Twilight anymore. No offense to anyone, I just was in love with the series freshman year but now I'm a senior so…it's been a while.
Please review! I know I'm a bit rusty with these stories but hopefully it's alright even though it's short. Also, there might some new stories or chapters on my profile since I've updated…Not exactly sure. But check it out! See if there's something you like on there! Seth imprint chap. 1 is up if I haven't mentioned it.
