Tess heard a tap on her window. She was half asleep, dreaming she was anywhere but here.
It was such a blow to hear from Embry about Jacob and his forever love to Bella. God, she'd just been reading her journals. She felt like burning them now. It was a struggle. She was glad she hadn't fallen completely for Jacob...because...because..
She wanted to say something horrible to him like...
I might like you better if you were just a wolf.
That wasn't completely true. Was it?
"I want you to come away with me." He begged.
"What? Are you crazy?" One of them had to be. Tess was so tempted. "Why?"
"Why?" He laughed as she let him in. "I'm like the chiwawa of the bunch."
"No, you're not." Tess shook her head, no.
"I don't have near the power they do." He sat down on her bed then. "All I ever wanted was to be in my own band, somewhere far from here. Where the only screams you heard were from fans wanting to hear me more. Wanting my songs. Me. Just me." He sounded so down about it.
"I'm sure you can still have a band." Tess told him. "Right here."
"Not here. It we were together. We could make it. I know we could. Together." He looked at her so innocently then.
Tess smiled, wishing they could truly have their own world.
He held her hand then. She looked back at her bedroom door thinking Jacob might bust in. Any moment and find them together.
