All Twilight characters belong to SM. She owns it all. Do I really have to state that at the beginning of every chapter? How about we just agree that it stands for the entire story, okay?


Summary: Post Breaking Dawn. When Rebecca Black writes a letter from her home in Hawaii to her twin Rachel in La Push reporting strange symptoms, the pack knows it's more fantastic than pragnancy or the common cold. The Cullens join in to help with the situation.


The Letter 2008 [Prologue]
March 15, 2008

Dearest Rachel,

ALOHA! How're things in La Push? Are you settling in okay now that you're done with college? I'm sure that everything seems smaller now that we are grown up. Is it too lonely without mom? I know I should come for a visit, but tickets are so expensive to fly up there from Hawaii. I guess that Jacob will be in his senior year this year, won't he? I'll bet he's grown since I moved here. I had heard about how it was between Bella Swan and him, and was hoping for the best, but it didn't happen, did it? I sure miss all of you! I need photos!

How is Leah doing? It must be hard for her with Sam going off with Emily. I was sure surprised that it wasn't Leah that got the proposal. Who can tell how things will go? YOU can tell, that's who. I want it ALL, in detail.

The house is coming along nicely. We painted the front room white, but the curtains and pillows are bright colors. The wicker furniture will do until we can afford something more substantial. The cushions have a bold print. I like it. We can only do a little at a time, but it is good to have the room that everybody sees done. The bathroom is next, but must wait until later this year. We're satisfied with the plumbing, but the walls need some patching up and painting. Should I do it in neon pink and green? Well, maybe we'll do it in the spring when we get our next income tax refund.

What is this I hear about you and Paul hanging around together? I sure didn't think you would go for him. I figured that you'd probably find someone at college. I only remember him as being a hot-head. What are his intentions? What are your intentions? Do you love him? It's pretty incredible to be in love, and to find the one you want to spend all your life with.

Speaking of the all-of-your-life-guy, I mean all-of-my-life-guy; Mala is so good to me. We do a lot of things together. I work in the shop with him now. I sell the swim suits, the beach clothes, the shells, the wet suits, snorkels, fins, and all of that stuff in the storefront. I take orders for surfboards, but I call Mala up front for the details. He makes the surfboards in the back workroom. We hit the waves quickly during lunchtime, and then it's back to the shop. It's like we can't get enough of each other sometimes. The beach here is so different than ours at First Beach, all sunny and bright. I'm not sure which one I like better.

By the way, don't worry about the things you hear in the newspaper. Two tourists were found dead early in the morning last week, and another is missing as of this morning, but our shop is near the sheriff's office and we're safe. We always walk home together.

Mala is obsessive about me and my safety. It's beginning to bug me. I got in his face about it yesterday. Funny thing was that I was only a little annoyed, but then I suddenly started seeing red, and my fists and arms began to tremble. I guess that I had spent too much time out in the sun, because I'm running a temp, too. It's up over 101, but I don't feel sick or anything. I'm sure that it'll be gone by the weekend. I guess that I'm not done growing, either. I'll bet that I'm finally taller than you now. I've grown an inch this month. Dad won't be able to call me "Little One", and you can't call me "Shorty" any more! Oh, yeah, I might be pregnant, I'm a little late, but don't tell dad yet.

Well, there's not much more to write about. Write soon!


Your Better Half
