Chapter 12 What the heck happened to Logan? -
When I woke up Logan was gone.Everyone was gone.Except for Renesme.She was laying on the couch,her head on my lap and her thumb in her mouth.She was asleep.I looked around for any sign of any life - Well.Any being's around.No one.It was deserted.Wasn't Seth here when I fell asleep? Why'd they leave Renesme with me? I looked down at her.She was so silent.Not a worry in the world.I sighed.Thinking that might change in a minute.I carefuly stood up,laying her head on the couch where my lap had been.
She stiffened and fussed alittle but stayed asleep.I walked over to the stairs."Hello.." I muttered.It was so quiet,I had the urge to keep my voice down.As if it were a library and not the home of a vampire family.
No answer.I sighed and glanced at Renesme.I couldn't go search and just leave her here.I pulled out the cell phone Bella always stuck me with and dialed Seth's number.
I got his answering machine.
"D-Crap.." I muttered."Seth answer your dang phone.."
I left a message telling him to call me back and went back to the couch.I picked up Renesme gently and went outside.She slept in my arms.I walked around to Bella's cottage and knocked.After knocking I noticed the white paper taped to the window.I yanked it off and read it.In Edward's hand writing there was the words :
Went hunting.Be back later.
- Mr. and Mrs. Cullen.
I wrinkled my nose.Hm.Well that answers one question.Next question.Where the hell are Seth and Logan? Seth always answers his phone.Well.Scratch that.He usually answers his phone.Unless Leah's holding him hostage or he's gotten himself in trouble.Sigh.
I crumbled the noteinto a ball with my fist and threw it to the ground.Don't the Cullen's usually leave someone home when they go hunting? I wasn't sure.
"Jacob.." Renesme murmured in her sleep.I looked at her and blinked.I smiled.
"Shhh.. Sleep.." I whispered and looked around.I started for the Clearwater's house.It had to be an emergancy if I was summoning Leah.
When I got there.I knocked on the door.Leah answered."What do you want Jacob?" She growled and glared at me.
I ignored her sour mood."Is Seth here?"
"He isn't answering his phone.Do you know where he is?"
She sighed."No.I don't know where my brother is at the momment.Please leave a message after the beep.BEEP." She shut the door in my face.I rolled my eyes.God she's annoying.
"I heard that you idiot!" She yelled through the door.
"Good!" I laughed and sighed.It wasn't worth fighting Leah.One of us would just end up with a broken nose.
I started walking toward Billy's house.While paying attention to my thoughts for any sign of Seth.Quil was with Clarie.Even though I couldn't read Paul's thoughts I was pretty sure he was with Rachel.My pain in the neck sister.Whenever I pick on him,he runs crying to Rachel.. Big baby.
I walked up and opened the door.Billy was sitting in his wheelchair by the couch watching a football game.Renesme woke up and mummbled when I walked in the door.She saw Billy and smiled."Billy!" She giggled.
I chuckled and walked her over to him.I sat her in his lap."Seen Seth at all today,Dad?" I glanced at my bedroom door where I could hear Paul talking.I grumbled."Paul's here?"
Billy sighed and nodded."Yes.So is your sister,but no.I have not seen Seth Clearwater.Why? Is something wrong?"
I grumbled and glared at the bedroom door."Paul don't eat my father out of house and home! Got it?"
"Shut up,Jacob!" Both Rachel and Paul yelled back at the same time.
I growled and looked at Billy."I'm not sure,honestly.I'm still looking for him."
Renesme stared contently at the telivision.Leaning on Billy.Ignoring us both.I chuckled."Lucky her.." I murmured.
Billy stared off into space thinking.He sighed."Alright.Contact me if you find him." He looked up at me then glanced at Renesme."I'll watch her."
"You sure?" I blinked.Surprised he was willing since he couldn't stand.
He nodded."I've got Paul and Rachel to help me.I'll be fine." He smiled.
I sighed."Ya.. Rachel.. Paul.. That's really reassuring." I muttered.
Billy laughed."I won't let them hurt her.I promise."
I looked at the bedroom door."If either of you idiots lay a finger on the child I'll beat the crap out of you!" I yelled.They both busted out laughing.I rolled my eyes and walked out.Slamming the door behind me.My phone in my pocket rang.
"Jacob? What's wrong?" It was Seth.
"Seth you idiot! Where are you?"
"Out on patrol."
"What? It's in the middle of the day.We always go at night."
"I know but we forgot last night so.."
I grumbled."Seth Clearwater don't go out on patrol alone again! Got it?"
I chuckled." 'Yes Sir' my butt.. Hey,do you know what happened to Logan?"
"Nope.Why? He's gone?"
Oh no.I wonder if any of the Cullen's have any idea where he is."Yeah he's gone!" I sighed."If you hear anything about him,call me back.."
"Okey-Dokey." He hung up.
I walked back inside."I found Seth.One down,seven more to go."
