I never thought that I'd forgive him. Not in a thousand years. I always knew that I would have bitterness in my heart for the man that broke me. He ripped me apart. That's something you can't forgive someone for, ever. I promised myself that I would hate him, and every person that did that to someone. That's exactly what I did.

I'd seen this hurt people too many times. But each time, in the end, they would end up happy. I'd seen Jacob get torn by Bella, while she ran off with that bloodsucker. She hadn't seen or heard what it did to him every time he heard her name. That was the worst part. But he got love and I'm the only one that can be bitter.

I shivered, remembering, and then changed. The howl ripped through the sky as I changed into a wolf. It was like nothing I had ever felt. I was the fastest. But for some reason this was something I couldn't outrun. I was frozen and I could never have children. And that sucked.

Shut up, Leah. There are worse things that could happen. Embry thought.

Yeah, because you would know. I snarled back at him.

Don't be so bitter, Leah. Quil interceded.

I let out a bloodcurdling snarl. Ugh, I hated being the only girl in the pack. Every other girl that I ever saw was a human, bloodsucker, or some sort of freaky hybrid. The hybrid was definitely the weirdest, just the thought of someone that had blood in them, drinking blood. It always made me shiver.

I'm gonna go to La Push later this afternoon to see Claire. Quil thought. The love oozed out of the way he said her name.


Ooo, touchy, are we Leah? Embry scoffed.

That was it. I turned and wheeled toward the sound of the rest of the pack. I was fuming pissed. I was not in the mood to be scoffed at. Let alone by Embry.

I reached the pack in seconds and snarled at Embry. But then I realized that we were all standing in front of the crypt. I still didn't care. I howled and my hackles stood straight up as I bared my teeth, ready to take a chunk out of Embry's head.

Suddenly, all of the vampires stood outside of the house. Looking surprisingly startled but my frightening expression.

Calm down, Leah. Seth thought.

Ha, bring it on. I can take a girl.

Another snarl came out and I took another menacing step forward.

"Calm down, Leah. I don't know what you're saying, Embry, but shut up." Jacob said.

He was standing in front of a frightened Nessie. Edward and Bella were on the porch and the doctor and mom-ish one were looking at me in a weird way. The lead bloodsucker took a step forward and held out his hands.

I snapped at him, causing him to take a step back.

Your so obnoxious, Leah. You think you're the only one in the world that's in pain? Look around, It's everywhere. I understand that it hurts. Embry said.

You don't understand anything! You think you're funny? Telling me to suck it up and just endure it? You don't think I've tried that? It's the hardest thing ever! I have tried my hardest.

Obviously not hard enough.

Then I took a leap at Embry and the next thing I knew, a russet wolf was holding me to the ground. I snapped and tried to get free.

Go change and come back here. Jacob erupted.

And at that, I turned and went to where I kept my extra clothes. I slipped into shorts and a gray tank top and ran back to the crypt.

"What?" I said. The Cullen's were still there watching. I didn't really care what the vampires did.

"You can never attack one of your brothers. Do you understand me?" Jacob said.

"Whatever." I said looking away. I felt a tear well up in my eye, embarrassing.

Then Jacobs's voice got all soft. "I know you're in pain, Leah. I know you're lonely. But you can't result to murdering Embry. That won't solve anything. Is there anything I can do?"

"No, nothing can help me. I hate everyone. You know who's fault it is. You know why. There really isn't anything that would ever make this better." My voice cracked at the end.

I looked back at Jacob. His face was angry, then he took in my expression and he turned sad. I looked around at the Cullen's and the same mask of pity was portrayed on all of their faces. I caught a glimpse of my reflection in a window. I had a pretty face, but it was twisted in pain.

Then I turned. I left with what little dignity I had, and ran.
