Seth was apologizing frantically for scaring me. The others had frozen. It looked like they felt bad for Seth and were anxious to see my reaction. “Sorry” I muttered. I really was sorry. I wasn’t going to change , but I was sorry. A part of me wanted to reach out my arms and let him झूला, स्विंग me, but I didn’t.
Leah came for the last fifteen मिनटों या so. Talking with her was nice. She at least understood the dangers of vampires. I gradually learned that she and Sam had been in प्यार before Sam had imprinted. I felt bad for her and the story helped me understand her better.
On the drive back to the vampire’s abode, Jacob and Seth were deciding when they wanted to come over the अगला day. At the house, they decided with Carlisle to come around noon. That night, I realized that I had a knack for walking into rooms unnoticed. Alice even mentioned that visions of me didn’t appear quite as readily as they did with others. Carlisle thought a moment “A reflection of her werewolf capabilities perhaps?” Edward offered another perspective” She makes a lot of विभाजित करें, विभक्त करें सेकंड decisions. और than anyone I’ve ever encountered.
The अगला mourning, we started experimenting. It was a bit fun. The Cullens wanted to see what I could do. When Bella, Edward and Renesmee were in the room, I could penetrate Bella’s shield and read her thoughts while I was mostly immune to Edward. A few weeks later, when my ribs were healed, we tried things with wolves. The final सूची was :
1. Alice can see my future when I’m phased, but she sees a human where there’s really a wolf
2. I can read some of the भेड़िया thoughts and they can read most of mine (the connection only occurs at a short distance)
3. Jacob works on me like Sam
4. I’m slower and weaker than the others, but too fast and strong for a human
Seth was vehemently opposed to my phasing just to experiment due to the pain it would cause, but it was easy enough to convince him that pain now could save worse pain later. It was better to know what was happening to me now, in a सुरक्षित environment, then later when there was real danger. Every time I winced, Seth seemed angry with Jacob. Rather than get angry back, Jacob always seemed repentant. I had no cracked ribs या serious damage.
I could tell hat the भेड़िया were hiding something. This hardly surprised me. दिया their mission in life, I would be surprised if they did want to share everything. I tried desperately not to see the secret, picturing a "she knows to much" scenario. Not the ideal situation to be in when giant mutant भेड़िया are involved.
I overheard Edward talking to Carlilse when I walked past Carlisle's study unnoticed I tried to pass quickly, but I caught "She still doesn't trust us या the wolves. She always expects the worst." Carlisle was calm "Can आप blame her? She's surrounded द्वारा incredible strength. Also I'm not convinced that her past has been full of people worth trusting" Edward sighed "I know. I just wish I didn't have to be around when she pictures us hurting her." Carlisle was sympathetic. "Ask Bella if She wouldn't mind projecting. Its unreasonable to ask her to do it all the time, but if she could give आप a break from time to time it might not bother आप as much." I had unconscionably stopped trying to to hurry and started trying to hear. "These visions...?" Carlisle asked. The mind reader sighed. "They vary but its always similar: vampire and werewolf strength against her. It's sickening." I walked away.
