“What are you doing here?” he asked, his dark eyes burning into mine.
I looked at his jaw, halfway expecting to see a mark from Charlie, but there was none. I guess I should have known better. Apparently werewolves didn’t bruise. Silly me.
“I…..I don’t know,” I admitted. “I was tired of waiting?”
His mouth opened slightly like he was going to say something, but it was hard to tell. We stood in the Cullen driveway, the rain pouring down on us in the darkness. I was shivering and cold and miserable but for the first time in days, I actually felt something.
I walked up to him, almost timidly. He stood still, his b body rigid but his eyes soft. When I was inches in front of him, he tentatively pulled me into his arms. We embraced in the chilly light rain, no sound but the raindrops hitting the driveway and Sue’s car.
I pulled away, looking up at him. I lost myself for a second in the deep, dark chocolate color that were his eyes, their warmth touching me. Just that one look made everything worth it.
“You shouldn't be here, Regan,” he muttered, brushing my damp hair away from my eyes. I shook my head and laughed bitterly.
“Say it so you sound convinced.”
“Are you….are you mad at me?”
His shoulders slumped slightly, his exasperated breath coming out in a white puff of air. He ran his hand through his spiky black hair, his face tense and he stepped away from me. I leaned back against Sue’s car, biting my lip as I watched his body seize with a stressful shudder.
“You know I’m not. This isn’t your fault. A fuck up this size….could only be mine,” he muttered.
“So….so if it’s your fuck up why do I have to be punished too? Seth…I…I can’t be without you. I feel like I….like I died or something. You can’t be with me like that and…and love me like that and then take it all away. You can’t do that Seth, it…it’s not fair.”
“Life isn’t fair, Regan,” he spat, clenching his jaw. He glanced back up at the house, his face still somber and brooding. I felt my heart clench up in my chest. He couldn’t do this to me - not this way.
