Huge, angry dogs chased me; I ran through
the thick forest with unnatural speed and leapt over a flowing
stream without any hesitation. My long golden curls whipped in
the wind behind me, and my pale skin was flecked with light from
the sun, it looked like diamonds. The horrible animals were
growing ever closer, I could smell their blood, sweet, hot, I
inhaled the scent, something inside me burned and as if someone
had flicked a switch, I abruptly came to a halt.
swiftly turned around to find three large dogs, all in different
shades of brown; they quickly surrounded me and bared their
too, bared my razor sharp teeth, fangs, some would call
feral hiss caught me off guard momentarily. Was that me? I
sounded nothing like the deep, rumbling sounds of these dogs; it
must have been me…
father said it was rude to hiss at my family, he said it usually
happens if I feel threatened, and in this case, I definitely felt
threatened, but no longer scared, I readied myself to
"Renesmee, NO!" My aunts familiar voice
called to me, I craned my neck around to see my aunt Alice, and
Uncle Emmet rushing toward me at full speed. I also noticed
another wolf-like dog at their side. It was Jacob. My
Jacob. His face was determined.
The beasts growled louder and in a blur,
Alice was at my side
Emmet and Jacob rushed past just as one dog
took their first lunge at me, Jacob caught it by the throat and
shook him with all his strength, I heard a piercing yelp, and a
thud, Jake dropped the animal to the ground, he was dead.
The two remaining dogs were still trying their luck with Emmet,
they were circling him. Jacob came up behind one and let out a
The fight continued until only one dog was
left. His eyes were clouded with panic as he made an attempt to
escape, running in the opposite direction; Jacob began to give
chase, wanting him dead, no doubt
"Jacob, let him go, he's not worth it" Emmet
Jake let a frustrated sigh escape him but
obediently padded back towards us,
But then disappeared through the
"Nessie!" Aunt Alice began
"You could have been seriously hurt! What
were you doing out her alone?!"
looked at her and tried to find an excuse "I was…I needed some
fresh air" I said,
It wasn't that far from the truth.
"Wait, you should know what I was
going to do!"
was kind of occupied, I was following Carlisle and Esme, they're
still not back" Alice sighed
"You okay ness?" Uncle Emmet
"Im fine…where's Jacob??"
"He's over there" Alice pointed to a big
tree "he's just phasing"
if he heard his name, Jacob came out from behind the tree in
human form; he wore only denim cut-offs. I couldn't help but
stare at his bare chest for a moment, tan skin and a nice
six-pack, I mentally scolded myself for thinking these things
about him and forced my eyes up to his face, and he didn't look
"Nessie...you should be more careful, you
could have been hurt, or seen!" he said,
glanced down at my hand, it still sparkled, I also noticed my
nails, the black polish was chipped I'll fix that later I
thought, and shoved my hand in the pocket of my hoodie. "I only
wanted some time to myself…" I whispered
"Renesmee, aren't you listening? The forest is dangerous for your
kind, especially when you're so young!" Jacob said, he sounded so
much like my parents, despite him only being sixteen, like
"Yes dad!" I said sarcastically "I
know it was stupid, im sorry, okay? Im sorry!" I
shrugged Alice's hand off my shoulder and ran the last few metres
home to our cottage.
"Nessie, you missed lunch, are you okay?"
mum asked as I came in the door, she was sitting on the lounge
with my dad
"Yes, Im fine…" I said, but tears were
welling in my eyes
"You don't look okay" she said, dad looked
up from the ball game on TV
"Renesmee, really, what happened?" he asked,
he knew me so well
"It's nothing dad, im fine, but im going to bed now" I quickly
walked to my bedroom and shut the door just as the tears started
flowing. I didn't like fighting with Jacob, he was my best
