Chapter Two

 

 

Finally, after a few minutes, he reached us. I looked up into his eyes, and saw a longing there that mirrored mine. Keith was handsome, with his dark eyes so intent upon my face and a half smile of peaceful happiness. He looked at me for a moment, and then spoke, letting his body relax.

“Hi, I’m Keith. We really need to talk.” He said it gently, as if not to scare me.

“Um… Okay,” the agreement came before I though about what it was for. Jacob spoke next.

“Hey Keith, the meeting is in an hour. I’ll see you there.”

Keith nodded without taking his eyes off me. “Should we walk? Or do you want to find a place to sit?”

“oh, uh… I guess we could walk?” The statement came out as a question. I just wanted him to be comfortable, never mind what I wanted.

He started walking again, stepping surprisingly lightly for his size. I felt warmer beside him. And what was more, the pain I had been feeling for my parent’s death was eased with him there. I didn’t understand everything going on, but I knew he and I shared a connection. Something about him pulled me towards him, so that I almost gravitated towards him. I was completely comfortable with this stranger.

“I have a lot to tell you, and a lot of it will be hard to believe.”

“I don’t know, I mean, I have been through a lot of pretty unbelievable things. I mean with my parents and…” I stopped, realizing I had already told him some thing about my life that was incredibly hard for me to go through.

“Well, this is a lot harder. First, I want you to tell me some thing.”

“Anything,” Again I was embarrassed about my willingness to talk.

He stopped and looked down at me. I turned so I was facing him again.

“Do you feel like we are connected? Like some force outside of our control wants us to be together?”

I felt my eyes go wide with shock. My mouth popped open, as I realized he was talking about the feeling I had that I needed to be with him.

“Are you okay?” He asked anxiously, as if he was afraid I would faint.

“Yeah,” I shook my head to clear it. “Yeah, I’m fine. Yes, I do have that feeling, but how did you know?” I looked at him with confusion evident on my face.

“Its hard to explain, but why don’t we go sit down so I can.”

Not wanting to waste time finding a dry place, I sat on the sand. He laughed at my excitement.

“Okay,” He said, getting to the ground himself. “I am going to tell you a story.”

He proceeded to tell me about a myth of our people. How we were descended from wolves.

“… And part of them lives on in some of the boys here in La Push. We have the wolf in us too…” He trailed off watching me carefully. I understood what he had said, but I didn’t get the connection.

“I… I don’t get what you mean exactly.”

“Well, the wolf that lives inside us is there for a reason. Feel my skin.”

He took my hand and laid it on his muscular chest, and I could feel his beating heart beneath it. Heat emanated off of his body. He was burning with a fever.

“Oh my Gosh,” I yelled. “Keith, we have to get you to a hospital!” I looked at him alarmed, but he merely smiled.

“The fever is only part of who I am.” His smile turned sheepish and he watched me closely. “Think, think about the ‘Mythical’ creatures you know of. I am one of them.”

“… Do you mean to tell me… do you mean… you’re a… a… werewolf?” I asked confused. He nodded.

“When I want to, I can change my figure into a wolf.” I was still shocked. “Are you scared?” He asked quietly.

“No…” And it was the truth. I knew it was, and suddenly, excitement flooded me. He smiled at my smile, and watched me carefully as I asked my question. “Can I see it? The werewolf part of you I mean?” He bit his lip.

“Okay, but you have to stay sitting so if you pass out, you won’t fall.” I nodded in response.

He got up and ran into the woods. A minute later, a large brown wolf came trotting out of the trees.

“Keith?” I asked when it approached me. It’s mouth stretched open into what was undeniably a grin. I started to laugh at the goofy, animated look it gave him.

I stood up, and he looked at me anxiously. “Can you explain something to me?” He nodded and ran with amazing grace back towards the woods. A minute later, he was back at my side.

“I still don’t understand. How are we connected?”

He proceeded to tell me of imprinting, and then, a howl filled the air.

“Is that one of the pack?” I asked.

He looked towards the sound and nodded. “We are supposed to have a meeting. Do you want to meet the rest of the pack? I am supposed to bring you so you can.”

“Absolutely, where is it?” I asked

“On the cliff, just there,” He said, pointing out to a cliff hanging out over the ocean.

“Oh… that will take forever to get there.” I said, disappointed at my lack of speed.

“Well… we could walk… or do you want to ride on my back?” He looked at me enthusiastically.

“That depends. How badly do you need to get there?” We laughed together, and he took a step forward and wrapped his arms around me. It was warm in his heated embrace, but I only drew comfort from it.

“Before we go, I need to let my uncle know I will be there.” He grinned.

“Jake already told him.” And with that, to my slight disappointment, he ran off into the woods.

Cautiously I climbed on his back. My fingers curled into his fur. I leaned forward and whispered into his ear. “I trust you.”

And with that, he bounded forward.
