Chapter 1: Getting Crazy

Paul POV

Geez. What's so freaking awesome about this Bella girl? To me, she just seems like some stupid bitch.

Shut the fuck up Paul! You don't even know her! Jacob snarled at me in his head.

Well it's goddamn fucking true! Look, if she's as smart as you say she is, she shouldn't still be stuck over some pansy ass vampire who just left her. Plus, she keeps breaking your heart over and over again and you don't even do shit about it!

Look, what do you want me to do? I already pushed her away like you guys wanted to. Besides, even if I was allowed to be near her she still needs time to heal. You don't get over first loves as easy as you may think! He charged at me.

Stop it! You boys are being ridiculous. Sam ordered. As much as I didn't want to stop, I did anyways. Stupid alpha orders… Paul, seriously man, you need to learn when to shut your mouth. Phase back and don't talk to Jake until you can bite your tongue back.

Fine. I huffed.

I ran away from the pack and phased back. I put on my shorts then I ended up running back to my house. As I made my way there, I smelled a faint tinge of blood. I heard something sharp scratching against human flesh. My eyes widened and ran immediately to the origin of the smell. As I got closer, I saw a young brunette, pale and fragile, holding a knife against her wrist. She was about to cut her vein when I yelled.

"NO!" the knife dropped from her hand and she started to sob. I was about to go comfort her when a man in dreadlocks suddenly walked up to her. No, it wasn't a man. It was a vampire. I couldn't care at the moment, I phased into a wolf immediately, my shorts ripping up to pieces.

"Well, well, well what do we have here?" he surrounded the girl and menacingly caressed her cheek. I visibly saw her flinch.

"Laurent," her voice was shaky, but I could tell she was trying to be confident. She knows the bloodsucker?

"I see you remember me. You know you should be lucky that I was the one who found you here today. Victoria has more vicious plans in store for you," he breathed out, his voice dripping with venom.

"T-they won't let you get away with this," the girl stuttered.

"Is that so?" he asked. The brunette's eyes were tightly shut. The leech was about to bite her neck when I ran at him at full speed. I could tell that he smelled my scent as he was beginning to stagger back. "Impossible," he whispered.

Eat dirt mother fucker. I thought as I chased him.

Paul, Paul! Where are you? Sam asked frantically.

Beating a tanned vampire's ass. I replied excitedly.

We'll be there in 2. He added.

I continued to chase the bloodsucker. I pounced on him, but he grabbed my shoulder and threw me against a tree. I felt my shoulder dislocate and I couldn't help the whimper that escaped my muzzle. I tried to get up, but the pain on my shoulder was too intense.

Take it easy Paul. We're here already. We've got it. Jared said.

Beat his fucking bitchy ass for me. I demanded. I mentally saw Jared nod at my request.

I closed my eyes as I waited for my bones to connect again. Suddenly, I heard the sound of light footsteps on the ground. My ears perked up and my eyes opened, as I tried to look at who was approaching. It was the brunette again. What the hell was up with this girl? She was just about to be killed and here she goes again, as if she WANTS to be found and killed.

"There you are!" she shouted and she ran to me. She lightly put her hand on my dislocated shoulder and I whimpered at the pain. "Does it hurt here?" she asked. I nodded. "I'm sorry," she whispered. I looked up at her through my wolf eyes and looked at her in wonder. Sorry? What the hell is she sorry for? For about to be getting killed? That was not her fault. Seeing the wonder in my eyes, she answered my unasked question.

"I shouldn't have tried to kill myself in the first place, so then Laurent wouldn't have been able to smell my scent and you wouldn't have gotten hurt," she explained, "I always hurt everyone around me." She began breaking down in sobs again and she buried her head in my fur. I nuzzled my wolf head into her neck to give her comfort. She responded by wrapping her arms around my neck as she cried even more.

"Thank you," she whispered. "Wow, I'm talking to a wolf," she muttered to herself. I couldn't help but laugh at her, but it ended up sounding like a chain of disconcerted barks. "You're cute you know?" she mused. I couldn't help but grin at her statement. My tongue lolled off my mouth as I tried to give her my best wolfy grin. She started to play with my fur, with her fingers all tangled inside of them. A loud rumble went through my chest. Mother fucker, did I just fucking purr?

A small giggle escaped her lips, and… I wanted more of it. Her giggle sounded like pure music to my ears and I just wanted to hear more of it. To have more of her. Whoa, whoa, whoa. What the hell happened to Paul Meraz? The playboy and unsensitive guy?

What the fuck Paul? I heard Embry laugh inside my head.

One word Embry, and I'll kill you. I threatened. What happened to the leech? Did you kill it?

Yes, Paul we did. Jared answered.

How are we supposed to get you out of there? Sam asked. Holy mother of shit! Is that Bella Swan?

Who are you talking about? I asked confused.

That girl with you. That's Bella Swan. Oh god, please don't tell me that she was the girl who was trying to kill herself? He groaned to himself.

This. This girl is Bella Swan? Well, shoot me. I've been acting so nice to her and I'm supposed to loathe her. Jesus, I need her off of me now. I demanded.

Don't be such an ass Paul. The girl just tried to kill herself. Give your jerkface a break and continue comforting her like that. We'll be there to get you. Sam said.

Get here fast.

I looked at Bella again. Her face glowed with so much happiness as she continued to play with my fur. Fuck me, how can I hate her when she's just so goddamn cute? No fucker, keep your balls intact. This girl is an enemy. She doesn't deserve anything.

I felt the presence of my pack members. I tried getting Bella off of me by pushing her off with my muzzle. "Are these your brothers?" she asked. I heard Embry snort. I nodded and her eyes lit up with understanding. "Well, I hope they make you better. Thank you again," she gave my wolf cheek a little peck before she got off of me.

You feeling better Paul? Sam asked.

Yeah I'm good. My shoulder seemed to have relocated the right way. I answered.

A thought then popped into my head.

Please don't tell me that Jake is here. I pleaded.

Don't worry about it. I sent him home right after you. Sam assured.

What do we do about her? I asked.

Is my hearing okay? Did Paul just seriously sound like he CARES for someone? What has the world come to? Jared joked.

I swear to god Jared, if you don't shut up I'll kill you too. I threatened.

Okay, so who wants to help Bella get back home?

No one answered. We were all standing in a straight line when everyone else took a step back. I realized that I was standing on my four paws alone.

Great Paul! Thanks for volunteering! Embry exclaimed.

Aw fuck no! You assholes, I did not volunteer! I shouted at them.

Sorry Paul, but I guess you're going to have to follow her. Sam said.

No. I said firmly.

Paul. I'm ordering you to follow her and bring her back home. He commanded.

What an asshole you are Sam. I grunted.

Hypocrite. Embry muttered. I could tell that everyone was trying to hold back their laughs.

Fine damn it. I grumbled.

I stalked off away from them and started following Bella's scent. I immediately picked up on her scent and found her seconds later. As assumed, she was walking around, surely not knowing which way to go. I walked over to her and nudged her back. She gasped then turned around to face me. "Oh it's you!" she exclaimed. I could hear the relief in her voice. Forgetting that I was still a wolf, I asked her if she was lost, but it came out as a bark.

She seemed to have understood me because she answered. "I know, I know. I'm lost okay? If you hadn't noticed, I do have the worst sense of direction," she laughed lightly. I nudged my muzzle towards the direction of her house and gestured for her to follow me. "Are you trying to lead me somewhere?" she asked. I nodded my head and her eyes lit up with excitement. "You can understand me, can't you?" I nodded my head once again. She smiled and began following me as I slowly walked, trying to match her pace.

"My name's Bella, what's yours?" she suddenly asked. Geez. This girl has no sense of self preservation. "Okay….. would you like me to guess?" I gave her a bark of approval. "Is it Andrew? Max? Milo? Fido?" she asked. I shook my head at all of them. "Princess?" I growled at that a bit. "Chill out, I was just kidding," she grinned. I rolled my eyes. "Did you just roll your eyes at me?" she asked in amusement. I nodded. "This is so cool!" she exclaimed.

We continued to walk further until we finally reached her house. I nudged her again and pointed at her house. "We're here," she stated. Duh. Good, at least I still haven't lost my sarcastic self. "Thank you again," she said with grateful tone. She started walking into her house and just as I was about to walk away, she turned back around. "Hey," she said softly. I gave her questioning eyes. "Can I call you wolfy?" she asked with a light smile. I was hesitant about it but nodded my head anyways. "Bye wolfy! Hope that I can see you again soon!" she waved goodbye then completely walked into her house.

See? That wasn't so bad. Sam chuckled.

Don't make me hesitate to kill you Sam. I growled.

You wouldn't be able to anyways. I could feel his smirk.

I think that she's turned you into a softy Paul. Embry teased.

What the hell did I tell you Embry? Shut the hell up! I growled.

Take a break Paul. Seriously, just go home already. Sam said.


I ran back to my house and phased back. I grabbed a pair of boxers and plopped myself on my bead. I fell with a loud "Hmmph." It felt so good to finally be on a bed. I've been so tired this past week. Patrol has been going to overdrive because some red-headed leech just won't leave us the fuck alone. God, bloodsuckers are so infuriating.

I closed my eyes and let myself relax. My mind kept drifting back to Bella, but I'd always catch myself in time before I thought something that I shouldn't have. I don't know what it is about her, but I just can't pull myself away. What the hell happened? A couple of hours ago, I was bitching about what a stupid bitch she is and now I can't stop thinking about her. I didn't imprint on her, that I was sure about, but I just can't shake this feeling.

God, I'm turning into a pussy. I need to stop thinking about her like that. You hate her Paul. Don't let her get to your head. Paul #1 said. Shut up stupid! You know that you feel something for her. You shouldn't fight it. Paul #2 defended.

Sheesh, now I'm talking to myself? I'm getting crazy.

There you have it! I have finally put up the revision for Best Friends, or not.

Also, I am so sorry! I know I promised to have it up no later than June 7th but my internet was down yesterday and there was no other way for me to get on a computer. I know I messed up but I hope that the story was worth waiting for.

Please tell me what you guys think about it. I seriously need feedback so...
