New Beginnings

Chapter Text


I am so sick of people taking Sam and Emily's side. I'm in Forks with my brother Seth and I just got off the phone with my mom. She heard about when I said no to Emily about being her maid of honor and is trying to make me. I told her no too so now she's calling Sam so he can issue an alpha command. Yea, that's not going to work either you see, I plan on leaving and never coming back and in order to truly free myself, I have to leave this pack since it seems to love causing me more pain. I mean, I left the pack a while ago. I just want to make it official. Which brings me to why I'm here with my brother Seth. I want to leave on my own, but Rose and Em refused to let me and I wouldn't be able to forgive myself if I leave them or Seth behind without asking first. We are currently sitting in some diner with burgers and fries.

"So Seth, you know I love you right?" Seth looks at me suspiciously.

"Yea, what does that have to do with anything?" Seth asks narrowing his eyes.

"Look I'm just going to be honest. I hate it here. Sam left me for Emily, dad died, mom prefers Emily to me, I'm the only female shifter and everyone takes Sam and Emily's side and calls me a bitter bitch, so I've decided to leave and I want to know if you want to come with me." I look at him and he's silent for a while, then he looks me in the eye,

"Yea. I'm glad you asked. You know I was wondering when you were going to decide enough is enough. So where are we going?"  I'm surprised. I thought he was going to try to make me stay. I smile my old Leah smile that only he and the Cullens see nowadays.

"We're going to Stiles's house. He said we could live with him until Rose and Em find a house for us. He also knows about the supernatural so we don't have to lie to him. The best part, no patrols." Seth looks amazed. We finish eating and get back in Edward's Volvo. The Cullens have been very helpful throughout all of this. Is it weird I feel more at home with them than I do my own pack? I don't think so. I remember when Rosalie first found me during a little "confrontation" with the pack. It was two months ago. School was finishing up and I had just finished studying.


I was running patrols when Paul attacked me. I shifted to my human form and threw him into a tree. I turned my back to him with the intention of finishing my patrols when he tackled me and turned me over so I was facing him.

"I got her! I got her!" He screamed grinding down on me as I struggle to throw him off. Then Sam, Embry, and Jacob came running to where we were. When they arrived they were wearing matching smirks and their hard-ons could be seen through the cutoffs. They pull off the cutoffs and stalk towards me. I finally throw Paul off and he hits a tree. I shift and get into a fighting stance. They all shift too and attack at once and I sprint in the other direction. I'm close to the treaty line when I feel the weight of the Alpha command telling me to stop and shift back. They were getting closer, I could hear their paws. As if by some miracle, I sense a Cullen and use my nails to cut my skin and watched the blood drip down. I could hear the pack and vamps getting closer. The vampires arrive first, then Sam and the others burst through the clearing. Rosalie crosses the treaty line and grabs me just as Sam was rushing to me. She goes back to her side and hands me to Emmett. Emmett rushes off towards the Cullen residence as Rosalie stays behind doing who knows what. I finally pass out as I no longer can sense the pack near me. When I wake up, the stench off leeches is all around me. I recognize the place as the Cullens' home. I look around me and notice I'm in someone's bed. I'm confused as to why and how I got here until the memories all start coming back. I sigh in relief just as Rosalie opens the door to the room I'm staying in and walks in with a tray of food. She sets the food down on me and I look at her.

"Thank you." She raises an eyebrow at me.

"It's just food." She responds. I smile at her.

"Not for the food... well the food too, but I was talking about saving me." Realization crosses her face before she smiles at me and tells to shut up and eat. I dive right into the burger and french fries. I finish within 5 minutes and Rosalie takes the tray downstairs and when she returns Emmett is with her. They look at each other before finally looking at me.

"We want you to become part of our family. Seth can join too." Emmett says.

"Can I get a few minutes to think about it?" They smile at me telling me to take my time and exit the room. I go over everything about being in the pack in my head. Sam and Emily's betrayal, Mom siding with them, turning into the first she-wolf, Dad's death, being bitter and angry, the pack turning their backs on me except Seth, and finally the near rape incident. Next, I go over the Cullens. Not being nice to them and they still stayed with me, going shopping with Alice once, picking on Edward and Bella, training with Jasper, Esme and Carlisle filling the role of my parents, and finally, Rosalie and Emmett always watching from afar to make sure I was okay and saving me today. They will even let Seth join. I think I have my answer. I slowly slide out of bed and head downstairs. It seems that Rosalie, Emmett and I are the only ones here. Rosalie and Emmett are sitting on the couch watching some show on t.v when I walk in. They turn and smile at me motioning for me to sit between them.

"Did you make a decision yet?" Emmett asks.

"Yea. I want to join your family along with Seth." They smile even brighter than before.

"Great. Is there anything else?" Rosalie asks. I think about my cousin Stiles and how I planned to see him.

"I have a cousin in Beacon Hills. His name is Stiles and I wanted to rekindle our relationship since we hardly spoke since I became a wolf." They get these determined looks on their beautiful faces. (Where the hell did that come from?) 

"We will help you reconnect with him. Give us three days to hunt him down, and we can even move out there." They say and I can't stop the smile that spreads across my face and I hug them.

"Thank you," I whisper to them.


Since then, Seth and I have had conversations with Stiles every day. I have been waiting for this day for forever. I pull into the Cullen's driveway and walk inside. Rose and Em are waiting for us at the door. We give them hugs and go upstairs to bring all of our packed stuff and put it in Emmett's jeep. We get our last boxes in and go back inside to say goodbye to the family. We give our hugs then we get in the jeep and drive to the reservation to break the news to everyone else. We, of course, aren't telling them where we're going, but we are telling them we're leaving. When we arrive the pack, imprints and Elders are all outside waiting for us.
