I wanted to write the other side of the story, aside from the vampires. So I decided to write some werewolf romance and I really like Sam and Emily, so that's what the first chapter is about. It's part of their story, with a little bit of Leah in it too. I hope you'll like it!
Disclaimer: I don't own anything, it's all Stephenie Meyer's. I may use some sentences from New Moon and Eclipse where she explains imprinting.
Sam: The reason
It had been over a month since I had first changed into a… werewolf. Even when I just thought the word it almost made me throw up in disgust. I had changed into a monster. And I didn't even mind that much that I was feeling miserable now, but the fact that I was hurting Leah too was almost unbearable. We had been a in love with each other for so long and I loved her with my whole heart. There had to be a way to work this out – to stop hurting her –, but I couldn't explain to her what had happened to me, what I'd become, it was against the rules… And I was afraid that even if I could explain it to her, she wouldn't want me anymore. Who would want to stay with a monster?
I was on my way to Leah right now, she wanted me to meet Emily Young, a cousin or something like that who came to visit her. I didn't really care, but if it made Leah happy... It was one of the few things I could do for her right now. And she was coping very well under the circumstances; I knew she loved me too, otherwise she would've broken up with me a long time ago. I knew she had been worried sick during the time I was missing; especially because I couldn't give a proper explanation for my sudden departure after I had finally calmed down enough to change back to my human form.
I sighed when I drove into Leah's street and parked my car in front of her house. I walked toward the front door and tried to keep up a human pace; I still had to get used to the strength and speed I had now – actually the strength and the speed were the only things I liked about my new life.
Leah opened the door before I had even ringed the bell and the huge smile on her face made me happy too. It was the first smile I'd seen on her face since our last night together before I had changed for the first time, so maybe Emilie Young's visit was a good thing, now Leah could at least get her mind off of our problems for a couple of days.
She took my hand and I pulled her into my arms as soon as we were inside. I kissed her – carefully, I had to make sure I didn't hurt her now – and kept my arm around her waist while we walked to the living room.
was the first time I saw her. She had the most beautiful face I'd
ever seen and shiny, black hair that reached all the way down to her
waist. Her dark, almond-shaped eyes were curious, her smile was sweet
But the most important thing was that gravity shifted; it's the only way to try to explain what it felt like. The earth didn't hold me in place anymore, it was her.
'Sam, this is Emily. Emily, I'd like you to meet Sam, my boyfriend.' Leah said.
That shook me out of my awed gaze toward Emily. It seemed like an entire century had passed while… it – I didn't know what happened or how to call it – happened, but in reality it had only been a couple of seconds since I had kissed Leah in the hallway. It had been seconds ago I'd been willing to fight for my relationship with Leah and now… it's not like I didn't care, it just wasn't the most important thing anymore because it had nothing to do with Emily and Emily was my whole world now. I had absolutely no idea why and how and what the hell just happened, but for some strange reason this didn't freak me out. It was quite the opposite, actually; I felt relaxed, peaceful, like I had finally found my place on this earth and my reason to live.
'It's very nice to finally meet you, Sam. I've heard so much about you.' she spoke, her voice sounded like a melody in my ears. Oh my god, I couldn't believe myself. Had I really just thought that? What had happened to me?!
'I-it's nice to meet you too.' I managed to choke out.
She was so beautiful, I couldn't help but stare at her. Her dark eyes stared back at me, confused and a little afraid maybe – she obviously had no idea what was wrong with me.
'Sam?' Leah asked. 'Are you alright?'
Then it finally dawned on me. Leah. I had promised her everything – a house at the beach, a wonderful honeymoon, marriage, children, everything she wanted. And now – in one second – my whole existence had changed, it circled around one person now. I did love Leah very, very much and I still wanted all those things with her, but I loved Emily more. There was no way to describe what I felt for Emily, no way to explain all the feelings that raged through my body. I had never felt so protective about a human being, but now… I knew I would protect Emily from everything, I wouldn't let anyone hurt her. A little voice in the back of my mind wondered how it was possible my whole life could change by only seeing one person, not even by talking to her, but just by seeing her.
'I-I have to go.' I mumbled.
No matter how much pain it would cause me to be away from Emily, I had to do it. For Leah, for the other girl I loved. The love I felt for Leah was nothing compared to my adoration and devotion for Emily, but it was strong enough to still want Leah to be happy.
So I just stormed through the door, feeling disgusted with myself for betraying Leah at the same time I was floating with the pure, irrational love I had just felt for Emily.
Please review me, I'd like to know what you think about my first werewolf romance :)! Next: Emily POV.
