Oooh niice! Well I'm just gonna say Jo came back haha
I snuck back to the bonfire, wearing a warm sweater and night-black skinny jeans.
Paul walked behind me, silently without even trying I might add. I sneakily sat next to Sunny & Ty with Paul by my side.
I could see Sam sticking close to Sunny, watching Sunny so intently he didn't even seem to see the rest of the world.
I settled in to listen to the Elders recount the legends that I'd heard once... when I had come here with my parents, a faraway summer from my childhood...
I shook my head as if to clear it and heard the Elders speak three whispered words. "The Cold Ones," they said.
There was a visible stiffening among the guys and then they relaxed as the girls moved closer. My eyes slid to Sunny who was sitting cuddled up against Tyler...
Sam looked heartbroken... and surprisingly, so did Sunny! Hmm... A smile broke out on my face and I quickly stifled it.
Maybe things would turn out well after all. As the legends came to an end, I could see a few smiles and only two grimaces.
Seth was still grieving over Mae. She was due to return from Chicago any day now and I was anxious to see what decision she'd made.
I would, of course, support her no matter what. I began to see shadows dancing by the fire. Too close, in fact.
Much too close to be a true shadow... They seemed to writhe and cringe from the light and then move slowly towards the forest.
I blinked and the sand, water and open sky were all gone. I was frightened for a moment before I felt Paul's warm arms around me, slipping me under my covers and planting a kiss on my forehead before walking towards the window.
I pretended to stay asleep and watched him as he carefully scanned the forest beyond the glass.
I groaned a little and turned onto my side, peeking out of one eye.
Paul turned and came back to the bed, sitting at my side and brushing his fingers through my hair until all I could see was the darkness behind my eyelids and the shadows that couldn't be shadows.
Meh, I dunno where to go from here
Since we've covered the bonfire and the wolf legends (and now that Sunny's in the know!) we can move to the Christmas party where maybe we'll resolve all out imprint issues?? Come back Mae!
