Hey Guys thank you for all the reviews and I'm sorry it has taken me so long to update but I've had a bit of writers block and I have just finished my final exams so i'm finally graduating!
I re-read this story and chapter 4 was bothering me with basicly being the same so i combined it with chapter three.
As always this story is betad by Arabella Whitlock and it wouldn't be as good as it is without her.
I had been running for about 2 hours when I smelt them, Seth and Leah with other wolves. I let loose a piercing howl before phasing back and throwing on the dress that Serena lent me. I was glad that I had sent Serena to take Amelia straight back to Forks, I wouldn't have ever forgiven myself if something bad had happened them here, my bond with them had grown strong fast and I would do anything to keep them safe. Shaking my head I walked out of the forest to see six tall and tanned good looking men with Seth and Leah.
"Bella, where have you been?" was the first thing they asked as they bolted towards me, leaving those men behind.
"I've been at the Quinault reservation. I found another pack and by the looks of it so did you" I said, hugging them. I needed to feel them close to me, to make sure they were alright.
"Really?" they asked. I think that they hadn't really thought that there would be other tribes that also had guardians that phased when they were at the Quileute reservation.
"Yeah and Leah you'll be glad to find out that we aren't the only female shifters. In fact we have another member to our small pack. Her name's Serena and she has a daughter Amelia, and guess what I found out" I said with a small smile.
"What?" Leah asked
"You will be able to have children, Leah. It's not impossible like the elders said and you aren't a freak for being the only female in your tribe. The Quileute's just have more males so that is why there haven't been any other girls until you. The Cullen's being near caused the biggest pack in tribal history. When there weren't enough males in your age group you phased then younger people started phasing like Collin and Brady" I told her what I found out. I knew that one of Leah's biggest fears was that she would never be able to have children.
I could see she wanted to believe this but she didn't want to get her hopes up, after all the elders, her parents and the pack had always told her that she would never be able to have children since her cycle stopped.
"Really Leah, you can have children. You are not a freak for being the only female in your tribe, think of it as an honour. We're warriors and there aren't many of us so we should be proud of what we are. We aren't flukes and we sure as hell aren't freaks. Think about it, if it was impossible to carry a child, mine would have died when I first phased too" I told her.
"Thank you" Leah said as she pulled me into a hug. After a moment she pulled away and led me back to the house where the men were still standing.
"Bella this is Derrick the alpha, Travis, Kurt, Caleb, Randal and Conner…my imprint" Leah said. I was shocked, Leah had imprinted. I was both happy and sad. I was happy that Leah had finally found her soul mate and she deserved it. She had been hurt so much, yet I was a little sad because I didn't have my mate here with me. I could feel the hole in my chest, throbbing from being so far away from Paul, yet he was happy.
"I'm glad for you, Leah. Fate must have chosen him well. You're his and he is yours. I know that you were hurt and believe me I know what that feels like, this is your chance to get happiness and you deserve it" I said to Leah as I pulled her into a hug. I could feel a small tear escape from the corner of my eye and I moved my head closer to her hair so it would mix to her hair and dry so she wouldn't see it.
Leah pulled away from me after a couple of moments. "So where are we going to go next?" She suddenly asked from me. I was shocked, I expected Leah would want to stay here with her imprint's pack.
"You still want to come?" I asked her my eyes wide.
"Of course! We're in this together. You, Seth, this Serena girl, Conner and me. We aren't just going to abandon you, so where are we headed, Bella? "
This was the thing I was dreading most of telling her, she was going to be pissed.
"We're headed back to Forks" I said, waiting for her reaction.
She was shocked. Her eyes were bulging out of her sockets and her mouth was hanging wide open. It would have been hilarious if the situation wasn't so serious.
"Why the fuck are we headed back to that hell hole?" She replied with a deadly quiet voice. I suddenly thought back to what happened to make me decide to return to Forks.
While Serena and I were packing her things, we were talking about my baby. "So have you had an appointment with an OB/GYN yet?" Serena asked, folding one of Amelia's dresses.
"No…when I found out about Rachel being pregnant and when Paul said what he did, I ran out and phased, I hadn't stopped running until I collapsed here" I said, feeling guilty that I hadn't been taking proper care of my baby.
"Do you ever plan on telling this Paul guy about the baby?" I flinched as soon as I heard what she asked.
"I was going to, until he said what he did. He said to Rachel that he would not want it!" I said, freaking out slightly.
"But what if he didn't mean it?" Serena asked gently, taking a step towards me.
"I can't confront him Serena, I'm not that strong and I won't be able to handle it if he doesn't want him" I said rubbing my still flat stomach, fighting back the tears.
"What about this, we find your friends Leah and Seth then head back to Forks, you need to see an OB/GYN to check on your baby and get your things from your father's place. WE can sort out what to do about Paul when we get there." Serena suggested.
"Where can we stay though?" I asked quietly. I didn't want the pack to find out if we were back, even if it was just for a couple of days. Jake, Jared, Brady, Colin and maybe even Sam would probably try to get me to stay if they found out I was pregnant and I especially wouldn't be able to live there in peace, knowing that my baby wasn't wanted.
"You said that your father still owns his old house and it's still fully furnished, because he hoped that you would move back to Forks" Serena said after a moment of silence.
"Fine but we make no deals."
End of Flash Back
"Well I have to have a doctor's appointments-" I began
"But we can have that done anywhere" Leah interrupted me.
"If you will let me finish, I still need to get my stuff from Charlie's and so do you and Seth, I'm guessing you only grabbed a duffle bag with clothes" I said.
"We can buy more Bella. We don't have anywhere to stay and we can't stay with Charlie and my mum, the pack will find out and that can't happen" Leah said as a last attempt, I could hear her voice weakening.
"Lee-Lee we are staying at my dad's old place. We won't be there long, just a couple of days then we're gone, ok" I asked looking straight to her eyes.
"Fine, but if anything happens we are out of there, no matter what" Leah finally said.
"OK" I said smiling.
An hour later we were putting the last of things into Conner's car and on our way to Forks
Ok I have a pop quiz for you guys to anwser
1) What do you think will happen in Forks? will the pack find out about them being back?
2) If the pack does find out that they are back do you think that they will hear the baby and find out?
3) Should Paul run into Bella while at Forks?
3) Where do you think they are going to go after they leave Forks?
Please review and tell me what you think
