I know I haven't updated in literally forever but I my laptop got a horrible virus while my cousin was using it. She just had to open an unmarked email she got. All my documents were lost. But the damage is now fixed since I sent my laptop off to a specialist—which my cousin did pay for.


Figuring out things in my life was first on the agenda today. I had a few down already. I had accepted that I was a werewolf, which was still the weirdest out them all. Now I had to deal with my feelings. Of course my thoughts were to put it off until tomorrow, but then it would be the same excuse the next day.

I wasn't exactly sure of my feelings for Jacob. He was so sweet and he loved me. What more did I need? But, that was the problem. I had no idea what I needed.

Grudgingly, I headed down the steps and into the kitchen. It was a cool day and the air was blowing through the open window. I went to wash the dishes when something caught my eye. I glanced up and stared through the glass to the woods. There was an off figure standing at the edge. I dropped everything and pushed myself up on my toes to see better. Whatever this thing was, it was dark and I couldn't see any features on their face. I could tell it was definitely a person from the human like figure.

Against my better judgment, I half ran to the door and looked around the corner of the house. I kept my hand on the door just in case I needed to run back in. It wasn't exactly fear that I was feeling, more like anxiety. It felt like something was going to happen. Something bad.

Then it hit me. Hit me like a well of bricks. I knew this shady figure. I suddenly flashed back to the woods when it was there, watching me, the same as it was doing now. A vampire? But what did it want with me? I was not about to find out.

I didn't know what to do. I was alone and new at the whole werewolf thing. If it was stronger than me, I could easily be hurt or even killed.

Don't stand there! Do something!

Closing my door behind me, I started to walk in the other direction away from the house. I figured that I would test it first. If it followed me then I knew I had to get out of there. There was a bad smell in the air, a sickening one that smelled of icy sweetness almost. Yes, most definitely a vampire. There was no question in my mind now. I watched as it took more steps towards me as I backed away into the street. There was a big amount of space between us but I wasn't about to have it closed. This thing was after me.

For a second I thought about standing my ground and going for it but that was too dangerous. I didn't know my abilities. Underestimating a vampire was a bad decision.

I turned around and disappeared into the woods. I took off in the direction of La Push knowing that I could easily run into one of the others. I couldn't tell if I was even going in the right direction, though. The trees were passing by so fast that they were barely seen. It was all a mess of green and brown. I wasn't sure how I was doing it but I somehow managed to dodge the obstacles that were in my way.

Vampires were too damn fast. I was expecting that any second it would lunge at me and take me down to the ground. It would easily tear me to shreds.

"Bella!" I heard someone call in the distance.

I looked around but saw no one there. My concentration went back to the vampire. I hadn't realized it but in all the confusion I had stopped dead in my tracks. There was an awful growl that came from the thing behind me, a deep but aggressive sound that could frighten anyone. The vampire was a guy. He looked like he was about college age, studious, and a face that was beautiful like all vampires had. There was no mistaken what he was. The pale skin was three times lighter than mine and his eyes were pitch black. That only meant one thing—thirst.

"Bella," the boy spoke my name. The voice was He had curiosity within the features of his face. His eyebrows furrowed as he cocked his head to the side.

Ohmygosh, it knows me...

A few seconds went by and then the vampires head quickly jerked up. His eyes went big with anger. He smiled at me, an oddly wicked smile.


I involuntarily gasped at the sound of a familiar voice. Quickly, I snapped my head back to where the vampire stood. It was nothing but empty space.

I decided then that I wasn't going to worry the others. No one needed to get hurt. I would tell Jacob later.

"Embry!" I half screamed as Paul, Jacob, and Jared appeared behind him.

"Whoa, Bella, no need to scream my name like that. You know, unless…" He wiggled his eyebrows at me with a smile.

"Shut up," Jacob warned.

"Ew, don't be gross." I folded my arms across my chest, my cheeks started to get hot with embarrassment. "Am I always going to be your target of sexual jokes?"

"Well there are only about three things we think about: sex, vampires, and food," Paul jumped in. The way he looked at me made me feel uncomfortable. It was like all Paul had to do was give you a sideways look and then you automatically feel like you're standing in a crowd of people and you're completely naked. Not a good feeling.

"Oh, I'm sure only you think that way," I said with a sly smile. "And besides, I think you should only concentrate on the vampires and food. I've been in your mind Paul, I know you're still a virgin."

"Burn!" Embry sneered, shoving Paul in the shoulder. The other guys laughed.

"Which brings me to me next question. What about you?"

"What about me?" I spat.

Out of the corner of my eye I saw Jacob tense up next to Embry. "Shut up, Paul. Leave her alone."

"Well this just got awkward." Jared turned to Paul. "And a little creepy."

I stood there and watched as Paul and Jared got into an argument. It was really boring watching them fight. I didn't know how they did it. One moment they would be in eachother's faces, about to rip their throughts out, and the next they would be best friends.

"I have to tell you something," I nudged Jacob.

He turned his attention to me. "What is it? Did something happen? Are you okay?"

"Please don't get all twenty questions on me," I begged Jacob with a slight smile. "It's nothing to be deeply worried about."

Jacob's face went a paler color. "It's a vampire, isn't it?"

Reviews make me very happy =)
