Chapters 5 -7 by Katlyn
Chapter 5- Imprint
Chapter 6- Switzerland
Chapter 7- Unhappy Ending
Bella and Jacob are still together in La Push. Jacob tells Bella that Quil has become a werewolf. Jacob says that most of the guys like being part of the Pack while Jacob and Sam are the bitter ones. Jacob explained that Sam was the first so he was alone when he first changed and that it was difficult for him. Sam and Leah Clearwater were together at the time and Bella had a hard time grasping that knowledge because Sam and Emily were perfect together. Leah and Sam fought a lot because he couldn’t tell her what was going on. And when Sam met Emily (Leah’s second cousin) he imprinted on her. Imprinting is very rare but it does happen. These two would be intertwined together forever, like absolute soul mates. So Sam was bitter about the Cullens for making him a wolf and breaking Leah’s heart. Jacob also told Bella that Sam caused the scars on Emily. He was devastated, but it strengthened their love. Bella asked if anyone else imprinted and Jacob confirmed that Jared did as well. Bella remembered to ask Jacob what he was thinking that disturbed Edward the other day. Jacob told her that he was thinking about how she looked when Edward was gone. She told him not to do it again, he shrugged it off. Bella ended their reunion because she had to go to Angela’s house to do graduation announcements.
On the way to Angela’s house, Bella sees a silver Volvo in her rearview mirror. She continues driving to Angela’s house knowing that Edward will not make a scene there. He drives by the house and she does not look at him. Angela and Bella address invites together making small talk. Angela asks if something is wrong with Bella. Bella explains about Edward and Jacob, and Angela tells Bella that Edward is probably jealous. Bella heads home and delays going into her room. When she finally does, Edward is there waiting. He is seething mad and tells Bella that he almost broke the treaty to go and get her. She fights back and tells him she is Switzerland (neutral) and will not be in the middle of the mythical creature feud. Edward tells Bella he is leaving to make up for his missed hunting trip. Bella calls Jacob and tells him she is coming over this weekend. After Bella leaves work on Thursday night, she is picked up by Alice and told that she is being kidnapped until Edward returns. She calls Jacob and cancels her plans. She then calls Edward and leaves a message saying how much trouble he will be in when he returns. Bella goes upstairs to Edwards room and sees a large bed dominating the room. She goes to the couch and tries to fall asleep. Rosalie appears in the doorway asking to speak with her.

“Did it happen to you?” I finally asked, still looking away. “This love-at-first-sight-thing?” “No,” he answered briskly. “Sam and Jared are the only ones.” “Hmm,” I said, trying to sound only politely interested. I was relieved, and I tried to explain this reaction to myself. I decided I was just glad he didn’t claim there was some mystical, wolfy connection between the two of us.
“Did you seriously just stamp your foot? I thought girls only did that on TV.”
“I am a neutral country. I am Switzerland. I refuse to be affected by territorial disputes between mythical creatures. Jacob is family. You are … well, not exactly the love of my life, because I expect to love you for much longer than that. The love of my existence. I don’t care who’s a werewolf and who’s a vampire. If Angela turns out to be a witch, she can join the party too.”
“Stupid bloodsucker,” he finally muttered. “I thought he was leaving. Can’t you have a life when he’s gone? Or does he lock you in a coffin?”
“…A year later she had a son, a beautiful boy with dimples and curly black hair. It was the first time I’d ever felt truly jealous of anyone else in my entire life.”
“…He loves you more than you know. It terrifies him to be away from you.”
I caught sight of Alice, frozen at the edge of the cafeteria, her eyes sparking with fury, he lip curled back over her teeth. I shot her one pleading glance.
