Well, just as I promised! It's here!
"Don't be afraid. Please." He murmured. I couldn't believe what I had just seen. This kind of stuff just wasn't real, or so i thought. I wasn't afraid of him. "I am afraid though....of the consequences." I whispered. "Me too." he said.
We were both in danger, but I didn't care. I needed him, and he needed me.
"Hey,honey!" My mom greeted me as I got out of the cab in front of her small home. Her new husband, Pete, was standing behind her. I didn't like him and he didn't like me so it was fine.
My name is Anna. I'm 17 years old. My parents split when I was 10, and I went to live with my dad in New York. He died a little over 6 months ago. I lived in So Ho with my aunt, but apparently my "rebellion" was too much for her to handle. So I came to live with my mom in La Push, just outside of Washington.
"Hey, Pete." I said, trying to be polite.
"Hi, Anna." He grumbled. I stifled a laugh. My mom brought me upstairs to my room. I unpacked my stuff and sat by the window. "Dad, I need you here with me. Why did you have to leave me. It's all my fault. You asked me if I wanted to come to get dinner with you. If I said yes, then I wouldn't feel so guilty." I said out-loud. Tears streamed down my face.
"Ahem." I heard from behind me. It was Pete. "What?" I asked. "We have guests for dinner, if you wanna come downstairs." He muttered. "I'll be right there."
"WHAT?!" I snapped.
"It's not your fault.....about your dad."
That totally caught me off guard. "Thanks."
I went downstairs and saw my mom talking to a man in a wheelchair. I recognized him as Billy Black. He used to baby-sit me, Seth, and his son Jacob all the time. "And there she is! Wow, Anna! How you have grown!" he said.
"Nice to see you again, Billy."
"Anna?!" I turned around to see a HUGE guy coming at me.
"Aha, hey Jake!" He picked me up.
"Oh sorry. Hey, Mel, did you tell her?" He asked my mom.
"No, not yet." She replied.
The doorbell rang. "Speaking of...." Jacob said as he walked to the door. I grabbed a can of soda from the cooler and sat at the counter. Jacob came in with an extremely good looking guy around our age. Our eyes met for a split second. He walked over to me.
"Well, hey there cutie." He said.
"Oh, please." I rolled my eyes.
"I feel like we have some kind of connection. Like as soon as I walked into the room.....i had this feeling."
"Are you sure it wasn't just coming from your pants?"
"Ouch. Good one. The name's Seth....Seth Clearwater," I stiffened, "and you are?"
I decided to have fun with this one.
"Well, I think you are so cute, Seth."
"Oh, thanks!" he said flattered.
"And you certainly have grown into a mighty fine guy."
"oh well y'kn- wait what?"
"The name's Anna....Anna Perota." I said mocking him.
His grip on my hand tightened. He stared straight at me. "Nice to see that you really haven't changed, at all in the past 7 years." I snapped. I could hear Jake laughing behind us. I looked at him. Him and my mom were enjoying this so much. I turned back around and smirked.
