Chapter 1: Out of His Element

It all started with a simple suggestion from his therapist

"Orin, I think you need to get away from here for awhile."

Orin was taken aback

"What do you mean?"

"You need to think about how you treat Audrey and what you can do to improve your end of the relationship. You need to get away from Skid Row."

"What? My relationship with Audrey is fine."

"Clearly it isn't Orin. You don't treat her like any self-respecting man should treat a woman no matter how much you try to deny it."

Orin sighed. Mr. Richards was right. He needed a reality check. He didn't treat Audrey with very much respect. She was on the verge of leaving him for someone else. Who that someone else was he wasn't so sure.

"Where do you suggest I go sir?"

Mr. Richards handed him a brochure that said Northern Washington Wellness Facitily.

" Washington, sir?"

"Yes, it's a nice resort right on the ocean. I think going thee would do you a world of good."

Orin hadn't done much traveling in his 23 years. More less traveling to the west coast of the USA.

"When should I book my flight sir?
"It's already paid for. You leave in three days."

"How long will I be there?"

"Two weeks."

And this is where we begin our story.

Orin had been at the rehab facility for 48 hours. He was not very used to being out of the city. He was in the most remote area of northern Washington State. There didn't seem to be civilization around for miles.

'I already hate it here. I want to be back on Skid Row.' He thought to himself. He hadn't really done much since he arrived in Washington. He decided to take advantage of the sunny day and take a walk on the beach.

He had been walking along for a good fifteen minutes lost in his thoughts when a boy a little bit younger than him walked up behind him.

"Hey, are you new around here?"

Orin shook his head. "No. I'm from out of town actually, I'm just here for vacation."

"Where are you staying?"

He pointed behind him where the rehab facility was not far in the distance.

"What are you in rehab for?"

"Just trying to get myself figured out. I'm have relationship troubles back home."

The stranger nodded. "I'm Jacob Black. I live over there." He pointed a few miles ahead to a log cabin that was just down a wooded path.

"Nice to meet you Jacob, I'm Orin."

The two boys shook hands.

"So what's your lady friend's name?" asked Jacob.

"Audrey."

"What's she like?"

"She's tall blonde, really pretty. I never really take the time to realize how beautiful she actually is and tell her."

"Why is that?"

"Because all I do is beat up on her. It's a vicious cycle. I drink. We get into a fight . I beat her up."

"Do you love her?"

"That's what I'm here for. Trying to figure out if I love as much as I possibly can."

"What's the issue then?"

"Using my words instead of my actions."

"Do you have any lady friends?"

"Yeah. Her name is Bella. Bella Swan."

"What's she like?"

"Tall. Beautiful. Dark brown hair. I've been friends with her since we were seven. I think I'm starting to fall her though."

"Why can't you tell her you like her?"

"It's not that easy."

"Why not?"

"It's kind of hard to explain."

Orin looked at Jacob and noticed he looked rather uncomfortable. He decided not to push him for anymore details.

"Wanna come over my house for lunch?" Jacob asked.

Orin smiled at his new friend. "Sure."

"I'll race ya."

"Okay."

And off they went toward the clearing. Orin was happy to made a new friend in such an unfamiliar place.
