A/N: New Moon. Jacob POV.

Emergency Beta Service: Rags

"I don't know what Bella's thinking," I babble, sitting beside Mom's grave. "She was ready to kiss me, and then . . ." I tug at my hair, screaming. I want to rage, destroy something. Destroy him.

Unable to keep the wolf within, I run, phasing before I hit the forest.

Bella should be with me.

My paws pound the wet earth, my mind stirring with memories.

She's in my room doing homework, eyes narrowed in concentration.

Her hand in my hair as I drift to sleep.

Her eyes pierce mine. She's leaning in.

I can't give up. I won't.

A/N: Special thanks to any of my girls who preread for me. You're all the bomb. Thanks to Emergency Beta Service. They are quick and awesome and know their stuff. Thanks to Twilight Twenty-Five for giving me awesome prompts and sending me a quick, do-able challenge. Writing exactly 100 words was difficult but quite a lesson in succint-ness. Which I needed. So yay! Thanks to all of you who read and reviewed and tweeted me regarding my drabbles. It's been fun. See you soon on the blog or with a new story. Overpass should be your way shortly-possibly within the month. Purely
