I stay with the pack until training. I ride on Embry's back to the clearing. He leans down, I swing my right leg over, and slide down his left side.
"Don't get hurt, please?" I say. I scratch behind his ears, and walk over to Bella.
"They don't trust us enough to be in their human forms," Edward says.
"You're damn right they don't," I say as I walk over. I hear Paul laugh his wolfy chuckle. I shoot him a warning look over my shoulder.
"They came, that's all that matters," Carlisle says. I sit down at the base of a tree about 50 yards away from where the Cullen's are. "Will you translate?"
"Welcome, Jasper has experience with newborns. He'll teach us how to defeat them," Carlisle says. Paul looks bored already.
"God, Paul! Wake up!" I say.
"They want to know how the newborns differ from us," Edward says, reading Sam's mind.
"They're a great deal stronger than us, because their own human blood lingers in their tissues. Our kind is never more physically powerful than in our first several months," Carlisle explains.
"Carlisle's right, that's why they are 'created.' A newborn army doesn't need thousands like a human army. But no human army can stand against them," Jasper says, "Now the two most important things to remember are to first: never let them get their arms around you, they can crush you instantly, and second, never go for the obvious kill, they'll be expecting that, and you. Will. Lose."
Embry trots over to me. I get up and move. He lays down, and I set down next to him, and lean on him like a pillow.
"This is boring me to death," I say as
Quil and Seth curl up on either side of me, and Paul sits on me, "Paul! Get off! You are crushing me!" He must have been holding his weight up, because he wasn't as heavy as I expected.
"I agree," Bella says as she walks up to us.
"I woke up a bit just now, I had a fat wolf sit on me!" I say. Paul growls. "You don't scare me Paul." I hear all the wolves chuckle, even Sam.
"How can you tell them apart? They all look similar," Bella says.
"It's easy! That's Paul, Embry, Seth, Quil, you already know Jake, Sam, Leah, and Jared," I point to them all as I say their name.
"Remind me how we're related please?" she says as she slumps down and leans on Quil.
"My mom was Charlie's sister," I say.
"I didn't mean literally!" she says.
"To damn bad. Cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it," I say with a smile.
"Ha ha ha, so funny," she says with sarcasm.
"I know right? I should be a comedian!" I say. Embrys laugh vibrates through his whole being, and mine. I close my eyes, and let sleep take over me.
