A/N: So I wrote this to see how well I do with a song fic. I've wanted to do a Blackwater fic for a while and this song seemed to fit. A little explanation before you continue: This is an Indian song. Original lyrics are in the regular font while the English translation is in bold. The girl who is singing this is singing about how the love of her life is going to be married and how she will be happy at the wedding. But once he and his wife leave, she will become sad when she thinks of them and wish that she could have had that happiness. It's very confusing, but I gave it my best shot. Links for the song and Leah's red dress can be found on my profile page. This chapter is all from Leah's POV and the second chapter that I can hopefully post some time this weekend will be completely Blackwater. Leah might be a tad OOC in this chapter, but I deemed it necessary. I'll stop my ramble now and I hope you enjoy the story.

Disclaimer: I do not own the character or the song, because if I owned Twilight Jacob and Leah would be together.


Raja ki aayegi baaraat

Prince Charming's wedding procession will arrive

Raja ki aayegi baaraat

Prince Charming's wedding procession will arrive

Rangeeli hogi raat

The night will be festive/colorful

Magan main naachoongi

I will dance joyously

Ho, magan main naachoongi

Oh, I will dance joyously


Leah knew there was only so much she could handle without a drink. She had been up since 3 in the morning to prepare for Sam and Emily's wedding and she was nearing her breaking point. For the last couple of months, the main thing that everyone has told her to do was to behave on Emily's big day. Her mother, Seth, Embry, Quil, Rachel, Rebecca, Kim, Paul...hell, even the leeches told her yesterday to be good today.

Leah kept a smile on her face while walking down the aisle with Paul, Sam's best man and played the part of a maid of honor that was happy for the bride. She smiled as they kissed for the first time as husband and wife and was on her best behavior. But during the reception, she saw the two of them dancing to "Someday My Prince Will Come" and Leah couldn't take it anymore.

She discreetly made her way to the open bar and asked Collin (the current pack member on bartending duty) to give her a shot of vodka and to just keep them coming. Leah glanced away before she had to see the pitying glance Collin would give her. Her mind drifted to a day when she had been watching Snow White and when that song had come on, she had imagined Prince Sam Uley coming to save her from her dreary life. Leah heard a pop of a champagne bottle that brought her back to reality. Leah grabbed her shot glass and drank.

From her spot at the bar, Leah was able to see all of the happy couples dancing. Emily had wanted a colorful wedding so she had all her bridesmaids dressed in colors of the rainbow. Leah was in a strapless red dress that came above her knees and showed more cleavage than she would have liked, but Leah had to admit that she had never looked more like a woman than she had today.

The other bridesmaids also had dresses with a similar cut, but in different colors. Rachel was in yellow, Rebecca was in green, Kim was in purple, and little Claire was in a sky blue dress. They had made a rainbow at the altar. Just like Emily wanted, Leah thought sarcastically. All of the bridesmaids (except for Leah) and Emily were dancing to a fast song with their imprints, each in their own little worlds.

Raja ke maathe tilak lagega

A tikka powder will be applied to the groom's forehead

(Rani ke maang sindoor) x.2

(Sindoor will be put in the parting of the bride's hair) x.2

Main bhi apne mann ki aasha

I will also fulfill

(Poori karoongi zaroor) x.2

(My heart's desire) x.2

Mehndi se peele honge haath

With henna, my hands will be colorful

Saheliyon ke saath

With my girlfriends

Magan main naachoongi

I will dance joyously

Ho, magan main naachoongi

Oh, I will dance joyously

Leah grabbed her thirteenth shot and drank. She felt the buzz that she had been looking for as soon as she put the glass down. Leah turned back to the dance floor just in time to see all of the guys leaving their imprints on the dance floor, dancing to a song from one of the latest boybands.

Emily found her in the crowd and beckoned her to come over and dance. Leah smiled and got up from her barstool. She went over to join the little group and pretended that the last 5 years never happened and that she was at her high school dance with her friends, dancing the night away. With her friends beside her, her body moving to the beat, and happiness radiating from every person in the room, Leah let herself enjoy tonight.


Rani ke sang raja doli sajaake

Adorning his carriage with his queen

Chale jaayenge pardes

The king will take her away to a foreign land

Haan, rani ke sang raja doli sajaake

Yes, adorning his carriage with his queen

Chale jaayenge pardes

The king will take her away to a foreign land

Jab jab unki yaad aayegi

Whenever her memories will come to me

(Dil pe lagegi thes) x.2

(My heart will yearn with pain) x.2

Nainon mein hogi barsaat

There will be rainfall of tears in my eyes

Andheri hogi raat

The night will be dark

Akeli main naachoongi

I will dance all alone

Haai, akeli main naachoongi

Oh, I will dance all alone


There was only one time during the wedding that Leah had cried. No it was not tears of sorrow for losing her beloved Sam (note the sarcasm). People honestly need to open their eyes and figure out that she is no longer in love with him. That ship sailed the second he imprinted on Emily, possibly even before then. Anybody who thought otherwise needed to get their own lives instead of gossiping about the lives of others. Untrue gossip at that.

But before the supernatural came into our lives. Before my father died. Before Sam had ever stepped into the picture, Emily and I were friends. Sisters in all but blood, but I trusted her more than I had ever trusted anyone else. When Sam had imprinted on Em and had turned into a bitchy version of myself, everyone had assumed that the reason I had become that way was because I still loved Sam and was angry with Emily for it. Anyone who knew me, knew that their is nothing that can break the bond between two people who are as close as sisters. Anyone who cared to remember, knew that I was one of the first people at her bedside when she had been mauled by Sam. That Leah had been overjoyed when Emily asked her to be the maid of honor. The only people who cared to know anything about this were her father, her mother, Emily, Seth, and her Alpha, Jake.

When Emily was leaving for her honeymoon, Leah had cried when her cousin, best friend and sister had hugged her. All she had wanted for Emily was happiness, who deserved it more than any other person for having gone through an awful childhood with abusive parents. Leah kissed Emily on the cheek and wished her all the happiness and joy in the world. She whispered, "Love you, Em," before passing her off to the next person. Emily just had enough time to whisper back, "Love you, Le," before finishing her goodbyes. Emily and Sam went into the car with Jake who would be driving them to the airport.

Leah went back to the backyard where the wedding was held after everyone had left. It would all be decided, but for now everything was still in its place. Making sure that no one could see her, she went up to the altar and pretended that she was the blushing bride and not the maid of honor. After a minute she stepped down and went to the middle of the makeshift dance floor. Leah closed her eyes and twirled around in a circle to music that no one but her could hear. When she got dizzy, she fell to her knees and cried. Leah cried for her father, for Emily, for Jake, for the loss of a normal life, and for happy endings that could never come true. Leah cried that her prince charming would never come.
