I had always imagined what it would be like to imprint, but could never really conjure up the feelings needed for it. I remember everyone telling me that it somehow felt like some random chick could make me feel whole or whatever. They described it as feeling like everything in your life was a bunch of thin flammable thread that was breaking and burning while your eyes stared straight into hers. Once all those strings were gone you had room for one steel wire to hold you down to a world without gravity. She was the steel wire. I thought it was lame. I was almost twenty and alone with no steel wire to hold me to the ground, just a bunch of flammable pieces waiting to come loose and let me fly away to the great unknown. That is until my mom dragged me to New York for a weekend. I tried to pay attention while my mother went on and on about how amazing New York was but I couldn't. I was homesick, Annoyed, and craving some of Emily's food. How could something so loud and busy be amazing? It really made no sense. New York was manufactured to be pretty. Forks was naturally pretty and would stay that way. "Seth, Hello" my mother called. "Look honey I know this isn't the ideal trip bu-" "ideal? Really? That's the word your gonna use for this trip? Mom ive almost been hit with a taxi twice, been cursed out for being to tall and our hotel sucks! Can we please got home?" I was whining but who cared. "No, we cannot Seth. I intend to enjoy myself here and you should do the same. Maybe something life changing could happen". Yea right, the only life changing that could happen would be if I imprinted. But that was not gonna happen. What were the chances of it anyway? Like one in a gazillion? Probably, Later that same day we (my mother) wanted to go to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. I objected but who cared right. "Oh Seth look at these" My mother pointed to a bunch of pinkish brown roses. " Aren't these amazing! Emily would die for these!" Great just what I needed another reminder of the time im losing here."Seth can you take a picture please honey?" Of course I said yes but with attitude. When had I become this bitter? I mean really, when? I was twenty and almost out of college. 5 years ago I would have jumped at the opportunity to come to the big apple. See the sights,and explore things that just weren't on my little reservation. Things had changed though, I knew that. Jacob one of my many brothers had married Nessie. Sam and Emily were celebrating their 3rd anniversary. Paul had gotten married and so had everyone else except Quil whose imprint was only 7 years old. Everyone had moved on. Even the Cullen's who could 't age had done the impossible. My sister Leah had even fallen in love with a guy whose name I never really cared to remember. My mom tried to get me back to planet earth but who said I wanted to be there anyway? I preferred planet Seth. Well, until I went to Prospect Park. My mother and I grabbed a bench a couple yards away from some clearing when a mother and her two children passed me by. Her daughter was the one who had caught my attention. "Seth you should really try to enjoy the heat out here while he has it. I talked to Billy and he said that it was going storm the day after we get back." I looked straight ahead tuning my mother out. The mother I saw was African-American or Spanish because she was a yellowish color and her kids were at least two shades darker then she was when I saw them. The older child was a girl about twelve or thirteen whose hair was at her shoulders. She wore brown combat boots, a skirt that went to the knee and a blouse under a vest. Thats not why she got my attention. The reason I kept staring like I saw an angel is because at the very moment I was about to turn away she looked at me and my life felt whole. Both our bodies were frozen with shock. My mind however was on another emotion. Insane, Everlasting love that filled my entire body with bliss. Everything was true wasn't it? The whole steel wire thing wasn't a lie at all. As we looked at each other I could see my entire future in her eyes knowing she saw the same. I saw love and compassion and forgiveness. Everything felt so right it was almost wrong. I had to look away but couldn't. Cause when I tried to look away, all I kept seeing was little strings flying away and one string,one steel wire to be precise was rapping around me and pulling me closer and closer to the earth were I knew she'd be waiting for me. Suddenly a name popped into my head "Kayla" it said. I walked towards her the same way she was walking toward me. I looked at her the way you look at the sun when you've been locked away for twenty years in a cell. She was beautiful I would give her that. As I looked at her I could tell her hair was just black waves. Her body didn't seem to shy either. For a thirteen year old she was curvy. "Hey im se-" Her mother cut me short. "Um excuse me but you're talking to a minor. My minor to be exact. Next time I see you i'm calling the cops.""You don't even know me!" I was in her face by then. "I know what you are though pervert!" She was yelling in my face. I wish someone would've told her to back off because I was about ready to claw her face off. Her and her two kids, one of which I was in love with, were leaving when Kayla mouthed the words " goodbye Seth" in my direction. "So what am I supposed to now? I like her. No screw that I love her!" I was on the phone with Sam and Jacob."Okay Seth you love her I get that but you can't go on some psychotic bend looking for her.""The hell I can't!" Sam and I were going back and forth when Jacob made a fairly good point. " Seth you don't have to track her down with the wolf sense way." "What do you mean?" "I mean don't go all wolf on her just yet. Try and find her the normal way once you do that let SOME animal senses take over.""So how do I find her?""Try something simple like face-book." "Facebook? You're kidding me right! Okay fine ill try it." I hung up the phone and got right to work. Finding her was easy. Her profile picture was probably taken that same day. As I was scrolling down I realized me and her had a lot more in common than I may have realized. Same music, actors, tv shows, and movies. Although this situation would usually freak me out had I not imprinted (that was gonna take some time to get used to) I was pretty pleased we had so much in common that way when I found her we wouldn't have to talk about the weather. I found her address. Somewhere in Queens it said. Oh crap! I had forgotten all about my mom. What was I supposed to tell her? She knew about the incident in Prospect Park but how was I supposed to explain leaving to go to Queens? She was gonna have a fit. But what did it matter to me? I had just found the person im supposed to spend my life with. I couldn't take her with me that was for sure. I would have to make her stay at the hotel. I traveled to Queens and found Kayla in a deli on the corner form where I assumed she lived." Hi" is all I could say. "Hi" she said back. Her voice was shockingly smooth like she could sing every word if she wanted to. " Your that guy from the park right? Well, of course you are. I can't forget a face that beautiful" She had no hesitation in her words." Well, yea that was me. I'm Seth, Seth Clearwater" "Look im sorry about Sherry she's a little over protective," " You call your mom Sherry?" "Yup," " Well theres a reason I came here" "Really what?" " Well ive sort of um imprinted on you." "Imprint? Is that like some technical term for like peeing or something" She was laughing at me like I was the funniest man on earth? I loved the way it sounded. "No um see," how in gods name was I gonna explain this to a thirteen year old? "No imprinting is when you find you soul mate but you see im different.""Different how?" Her deep brown eyes looked at me in amazement and wonder. I grabbed her hand and led her out the store and into a service lane."Usually when you find your soul-mate you guess. I know because im a shapeshifter." I looked at her waiting for her to run screaming but she didn't. Instead she grabbed my face, I almost melted. Our faces where inches apart when she said "I believe you ." Finally I felt like I could do anything and she would be right there with me. I didn't know what would happen after I left or if I would be able to see her again but I did know she was mine and I could keep her forever one way or the other.
