Chapter 30

I stared to walk back home when I heard someone running up behind me.

I turned in time to see Ruthie before she ran into me at full speed.

I caught her in my arms and she handed me another note.

"I'm not mad at you."

I smiled as she looked up at me. She wrapped her arms around my neck and pulled my head down to her level.

Our lips met and the world span. Kissing Ruthie was like flying. Nothing else mattered.

She pulled away, gasping for air from sprinting to catch up with me. Her face flooded with colour and she bit her bottom lip.

She grabbed my hand and led me back to her house.

"You caught him then?" Paul asked as we arrived.

She nodded and pulled me upstairs and into the study, where I had left all my school stuff when I ran out of the house yesterday.

Ruthie sat me in one of the chairs and started to write something.

I sat down next to her, looked over he shoulder and complained about the length of the note she had written. She laughed and handed me the paper.

"I really like you Embry, and I don't care that you're a wolf. Just please, be honest with me."

I smiled and pulled her into my lap. I was content with fiddling with her hair and the fact that I had managed to make her laugh without her panicking.
