Head Over Heels

Maya was one of those normal girls just waiting to be noticed. A wallflower of sorts. When the day came that a guy finally noticed her, she jumped to the opportunity of having a friend for once. But what she doesn't know is that she has to face the biggest decision of her life- something that could actually mean just that. What will happen when she finds out that she is being used by Emmett to play the biggest games in her life?


5. Learning

Lesson learned: never run from a vampire. It just doesn't work.
I got perhaps 3 ft out of the house before Emmett caught up and grabbed me in a bear hug. Smiling, he carried me kicking and screaming upside down into the house, where Nessie collapsed in a hopeless pile of giggles on the floor. He set me in a stool at the breakfast bar and then sat down next to me, chuckling. "Why'd she run?" Jacob asked Edward. "We can't afford any fearful on this team. She could turn traitor and get us all killed."
"'She' is right here, wolf. Don't act like I'm not in front of you, even if you do hate me. It's revolting," I replied rather sassily. "I would never turn traitor. I would rather die."
An awkward and uneasy silence followed. Finally, Carlisle spoke up,"Child, don't say things like that. It won't come to dying..." Another silence followed as his words trailed off. This time, Emmett was the one to break he silence. "Maya, we've gotta get you home before your mom sends Mr. Swan out in a search party for you. Edward, could you drive please?"
In the car, Edward's Volvo, we drove at a much slower speed than on the way to. Emmett and Edward took turns explaining the plan. I was to go to Italy over Presidents' Day weekend, when we had an additional two days off for conferences. Carlisle would invite me on a "camping trip" to get my mother out of the way. Emmett, Alice, Bella, and I would search around because of trails leading to some fancy named city there. If we found anything at all, we were supposed to call the others immediately, and a wolf girl named Leah plus Edward and Jasper would find us. Hey would launch into a capture attempt, when Leah's scent would supposedly distract "others" from me yet draw Rosalie over, and we would take her to safety while the others made a distraction. I didn't like the plan much, it was a little too iffy, but it would have to work. I prayed that it would.
