Chapter 6
Serena's point of view

Paul didn't ask about what happened and I was thankful for that. When we arrived at Sam and Emily's I cursed at who was here, Jake. I slide off Paul's back and Jake growls at Paul. I roll my eyes at him and walk into the house without talking or looking at him. Paul follows me and so does Jake.

"Serena please talk to me!" Jake begs when we get inside.

"Jake why do you want to talk to me now, what about this past week?" I ask glaring at him with tear filled eyes.

"I, I," he stutters.

"You don't, you just didn't want me to talk to Daniel," I say.

"That's not true," he defends.

"Then what?" I ask and he remains quiet.

"Jake you hurt me and I've been miserable for so long, you're happy with Bella so just leave me alone, I want happiness and I see now that you won't make me happy," I say and he looks hurt. I feel hurt too but he's hurt me too much and it needs to stop, now.

"Serena," he says looking into my eyes.

"No Jake, I want you to leave me alone, forever, I never want to talk to you or see you anymore," I say and he frowns. It hurts to say these words but it has to be done.

"Goodbye Jacob," I say and go upstairs to my room and start crying again.


Jake's point of view

Hearing those words from Serena hurt, they really did. Seeing her with that guy at the beach made me mad, really mad. I wanted to rip him to shreds and burn the pieces. He made my imprint smile, that's my job.

"Goodbye Jacob," she says and hurries upstairs to her room. I hear her door close and then she starts crying. My heart drops and breaks at the sound of her crying. My eyes glisten with tears and I run out of the house and phase. She doesn't want me, but isn't that what I wanted? I like Bella, not Serena. Bella is pretty, smart, fun, strong and awesome, but Serena is beautiful, smart, funny, fun, sweet, strong, brave, and everything I want in a girl. But she doesn't want me anymore, and that's okay I have Bella now. That's what I want, Bella.


Paul's point of view

Seeing Serena hurting killed me. She's my friend and like a sister to me and I never want her hurting.

"What should we do?" Embry asks after Jake storms out of the house.

"I don't know, I have patrol," I say.

"I wish Emily was here now, she went grocery shopping again," Quil says.

"Well you should give her some space, ask Emily when she gets back," I say and they nod. I head outside and phase. I hope Serena will be okay.

"What happened to her?!" Sam commands and I show him what happened.

"What happened at the beach?" he asks.

"I don't know, I wasn't with her then," I say.

"I really think Serena's done with him," he says.

"I think so too; what are we going to do, they're soul mates?" I ask.

"I don't know, I'll talk with the elders later," he says and I nod.

"Where's Jake, he phased when he ran out of the house?" I ask.

"He phased back and went to Bella's," he says and I growl.

"Don't worry Paul he has to realize that Bella's not the one," he says and I nod and start patrolling.


Rain's point of view

I was at home watching TV when my cell phone rang.

"Hello?" I ask into the phone.

"We need you asap!" Embry says and I become worried.

"What's wrong?" I ask.

"It's Serena," he says.

"I'm on my way," I say and hang up. I put my shoes on and grab my bag quickly and then head out to my car. I speed down the roads and break the speed limit. What's wrong with her now? I thought she was getting better? Is she even more sick? Is she in a coma? I hope she's okay!

When I arrive I jump out of the car and rush inside. I find Quil and Embry at the kitchen table with frowns.

"What's wrong?" I ask and they look to me.

"Jake," they growl and I scowl. They tell me about what happened and I decide I need to whole story so I walk upstairs.

"Serena, it's Rain can I come in?" I ask knocking on her door. I hear sniffling and crying. The door opens and I come face to face with my broken-hearted best friend. Her eyes and face are red and her eyes look puffy.

"Oh Serena!" I say and pull her into a hug. She starts crying and I sooth her. I shut the door and we sit together on the bed.

"Can you tell me the whole story?" I ask and she nods her head. When she tells me the story my own heart breaks for her. Gosh she's only 15 and these few months have been hell for her! I'm surprised that her heart can still work and keep her alive.

"Jake's a jerk, why did I even like him in the first place?" she cries.

"Oh sweetie, it's okay, a lot of guys are jerks," I say hugging her again.

"But he's my soul mate," she says.

"I know, he just needs to see that," I say.

"Maybe you two are just supposed to be friends now and in the future more than that," I suggest.

"Maybe," she sniffles.

"Hey everything is going to be okay, trust me, you have me and the pack and your mom," I say and she nods.

"I just hurt," she says sobbing into her pillow.

"I know it does, but it'll get better, I promise," I say rubbing her back.

"Promise?" she asks.

"Promise," I say. She ends up falling asleep and I leave her to go back downstairs. Emily's back now and talking with Embry and Quil.

"Is she okay now?" Emily asks.

"I think so, she fell asleep," I say and she nods. I sit in Embry's lap and sigh.

"What's wrong?" he asks.

"I just wish I could do more for her, she's dealt with so much these few months," I say.

"I know what you mean," he says and pulls me into his chest.
