Sorry werewolf fans everywhere, I feel the pain too.
We were running deep into the woods today. I heard the heart beat of some deer off to the side of the forest maybe 100 meters away. But I was after a smell that told me that something delicious was close. It smelled like what a human would drool over. And to a human it would be like not eating for a week and smelling a steak with potatoes and gravy only feet away. When it was inches away I tripped and the smell of rotting meat and dead flesh filled my nose. I looked down and saw a rotting corps on the forest floor. A scream left my lips.
I closed the car door and walked to the crime scene.
"Seventeen to twenty, male. That's all we know now." Cam said.
"It looks like canine bite marks on the left humerus and right femur. Who found the body?" I looked up from the remains.
"They, they say they were hiking and they found the body." Cam pointed to a couple that looked no older than seventeen but they both wore wedding rings. Me and Booth walked over to them.
"I'm FBI agent Seeley Booth and this is my partner Temperance Brennan. We'd like to ask you some questions."
"Of course. Um, we really have to go home to check on our daughter. Can we continue there? It's not far at all." The woman asked. She had topaz eyes as well as her husband. They both were very pale and she had tousled brown hair and the man had messy bronze hair, but they looked more like siblings than a married couple.
"Of course we can. Which way did you come from?" I said.
"Wait Bones, we can't hike all the way there." Booth whispered. "And there are huge bears here!"
"They said they didn't live far and Cam can take care of it from here." I started to follow the couple and then Booth started to come from behind stumbling on the roots and loose dirt. We walked for a quick few minutes and then Booth started to catch up with me.
"Are you sure about this?" He panted.
"Yes, if they are in familiar surroundings and have checked on their daughter than they will be more comfortable talking about what they saw.
"You have got to stop hanging out with Sweets." He stopped and looked amazed as we started to slow down. We were approaching a majestic white house with nearly every wall made of glass. Clouds started to form in the sky as we walked closer to the house. When I looked down from the sky to the couple they seemed to untense. We entered the house and the woman walked into the living room and picked up a small toddler, about one year old.
"Sorry, um, I'm Bella and this is my husband Edward." She said as she sat down.
"See mom, I told you I could take care of Renesmee." A girl walked in and sat next to Bella and took the baby. She started playing with the small girl that was laughing her heart out. "This is my oldest daughter, Paige. And Renesmee is my youngest." I was puzzled by this, they looked no older than eighteen and they had a daughter that seemed only years younger than them.
"I'm adopted, it confuses people a lot." Paige said.
Then a woman maybe in her mid twenty's came out of the kitchen and placed a plate of peanut brittle on the table and looked at us.
"Who are they?" she looked at Bella and Edward.
"Their with the FBI there was a murder in the woods." Her eyes went wide with shock. And then Edward shook his head as if they had some silent language.
"What happened?" she asked.
"That's what we're trying to find out." Booth said as we took a seat on the opposite side of the living room.
"She's our mother, it confuses people. Our family arrangement." Edward said like he read my mind. "Esme and Carlisle are my adoptive parents. And my siblings Emmett and Rosalie, Jasper and Alice are up stairs." Paige got up and handed the baby to her mother.
"I have to go practice for try outs tomorrow." She had a slight blush to her cheeks.
"Honey, let her have some privacy." Bella said as she grabbed a bottle.
"Have you seen or heard anything out of the ordinary lately?" Booth asked.
"Nothings normal here." Paige said as she pocked her head down from the stair case.
"We heard some fighting, like bears or wolves, in the back yard the other day, but that's it." Esme said.
"Well, call me if you remember anything else." Booth handed them a card and we walked back outside and started to the crime scene.
"Their hiding something, I can just tell."
"I think the daughter knows something."
"The baby?" Booth looked very confused.
"No, the teenager, She was hiding something. Maybe she knows who the victim is."
"I don't know, she seems too…"
"Her father was very protective of her; Bella had to tell him to let her have some privacy. She may be hiding something and the mother knows."
After I heard the FBI people leave I started to walk down stairs to go hunting. Suddenly a burst of happiness, love, and lust came from Paige's room. I felt like I traveled back to San Francisco in the 60's. I slowly walked over to the door and listened.
That rebel moon is shining'
Those stars burn like diamonds
Hell bent on chasing' down that crazy side
I'll follow you where you're leading
To the first sweet taste of freedom
You got me running' baby,
Wild at heart
"Paige?" I knocked on the door. The music stopped and she opened the door.
"Yeah?" she was out of breath and looked like she did after her first try outs last year for cheerleading.
"Nothing, I thought I felt something."
"There's no earthquake, uncle Jasper." She grabbed my forearm like she was trying to help me stay standing up.
"Very funny. Are you trying out for cheerleading this year?"
"Yeah, I have the perfect routine planed out." She closed the door and one of her favorite songs by P!nk get the party started. I walked down stairs and saw Edward looking like, well, me.
"What's stuck up your butt that's got you so concerned?"
"Paige, Bella won't let me check on her." He turned his gaze to Bella and Nessie.
"She deserves it."
"She's I trouble that little girl." Alice said as she walked out of the kitchen. "The FBI are going to take her in because she knows something, I can't tell because my vision was cut short."
"Wait, you men a werewolf?"
I kissed him and felt like I was flying. I'd never thought of kissing him but I fell in love with him, I think. Aunt Rosalie said that lust last three months but love lasts forever. Does this mean that it's lust or love?
"Paige, what's the matter?" he asked.
"Just thinking. I love you, Paul."
I stopped it short incase dad was listening in. I grabbed my picture of us at the beach. We were so happy before he found out and left. I thought we kept it so secret and he never thought about the times we'd gone out. I got up and put on my cheerleading uniform and ran down stairs.
"Mom, can you drive me to the school for tryouts?"
"Sure." She handed Nessie to dad and grabbed her keys. I strapped into the car and turned on the radio.
"Are you ready for this year?" she started the car and we were off.
"I hope so." I held on to my locket. He got it for me on my birthday. That's when Paul found out. He got so mad, I used to think it was hot when he got mad but he was scaring me. He was there and saved me. That was three weeks ago and then they found a skeleton in the woods. But it couldn't be him, could it?
"Honey, she's a teenage girl and it might be something that she's not supposed to be doing that she's not telling her parents." Angela pulled up the 3D picture of the victim. He was quit handsome.
"His name is Paul. I sent it to the Quileute reservation and one of his friends identified him."
"Does he have any enemies?"
"Three weeks ago he got into a pretty heated fight with his friend Jacob Black because he found out his friend, Jacob, was going out with his girlfriend."
"Who was that?" Booth asked. Angela pulled up a picture. She had long brown hair and emerald green eyes. Her nose was slightly turned up, her lips were thin and pink.
"Paige Cullen, thirteen, the girlfriend that two boys, way too old for her, were fighting over."
"That's her, the girl that I think knows something."
"We should bring her in, she could tell us what happened that made two best friends turn on each other."
"Well, in most species the male thinks of the female as power and other males are a threat do it's just in their DNA."
"More than we can comprehend." Angela said.
"I was reading their legends and there's one that says that their descendents of wolves. That could make them more instinctive."
~*later that day*~
Booth knocked on the door.
"FBI, open up." No one came to the door. Then a shriek came from up stairs. "Crap." Both grabbed his gun and knocked down the door. We walked up the stairs and music started to play.
"Yeah." We walked to the room that the music was coming from. Booth opened the door.
"Jacob, are you sure they don't know you're here?"
"Yeah, I was careful not to drop any hints." He pulled off his leather jacket. I started kissing him. He pulled me over to the bed. I wrapped my arms around his neck and he started to kiss my neck. I let out a small shriek when he pulled my shirt off and started kissing in between my beasts. His warm lips moved lower and lower. Then he moved back to my neck and then I pulled his shirt off. I heard shuffling outside the door and then agent Booth and Dr. Brennan came bursting through the door.
"Oh!" I let out a shriek.
"Get dressed, we need you to come down to answer some questions about how you're ex boyfriend ended up dead in the woods. You're coming to." He looked at Jacob. Crap.
After we got dressed we walked out and agent Booth and Dr. Brennan took us down to the station. I looked out the window.
I was reading a book in the garden and heard something behind me. I stood up and dropped my book.
"Sorry, did I scare you?" Jacob walked out of the bushes.
"No, you just surprised me." I knelt down to pick up the book. So did Jacob. As I was about to grab the book our hands met. I gasped. His hand was so warm. I picked up the book and stood up.
"Do you want to go out some time?"
"I'm seeing someone."
"Oh yeah, Paul." He looked down.
"It's getting dark," I looked up at the dark sky that was dotted with stars. Then I looked at him and felt a pang of sadness when I saw his eyes. He was like a lost puppy, he had those irresistible eyes. I felt like I was being pulled into his aura of light that mom said he always had. "I-I should get inside." I started to walk on path home and then I felt the earth move from under me. Then his arm shot out and caught me. My face was inches from his. I felt his warm breath I was so close. I placed my hand on his cheek and he lifted me closer to him. I closed my eyes and then I felt his warm lips on mine. It lasted seconds too little. Paul never kissed me like that. Jacob kissed me like I was something more than an imprint, more than someone that was arranged to be married when I turn eighteen just because I was born for some werewolf.
