A Bridge Too Hard to Cross

By MissGrey

Romance

Worrying over NOTHING

Leah's POV

"Leah are you sure you're gonna be ok?" My younger brother Seth asked me for maybe the millionth time that morning. I sighed impatiently.

"Seth, for the last time and I do mean last, I am fine, go hang out with Jacob and the other guys" I told him, sheesh he was even more of a mom then our own.

"Fine, but you promise your gonna call me if you need something right?' he asked, I nodded I'd rather do that then have to listen to him all night long. He smiled, and left the house.

Finally some quite.

The only reason Seth was acting like this because I suddenly got sick a couple nights ago. It wasn't anything too bad just a lot of throwing up and feeling sick. Some of the guys were even joking about me being pregnant. We all laughed it was probably something I ate or something along those lines; even as a werewolf, you can never escape getting an upset stomach. Trust me, been there with Seth and hope to never again see what I saw.

I lay down on the couch watching some T.V, some dumb moneymaking show. Deal or No Deal was the name. If I ever were offered $15 000 I would take it without question. Nevertheless, these people need to fill up thirty minutes worth of gay shit so yeah.

The smile faded away from my face as I felt the slick acid climb up my throat. I knew what was coming and ran to the bathroom at top speed. I reached the toilet just in time as it overflowed from my mouth in the porcelain toilet. My god this was wrose then before. I mean this was just crazy now, this must have been the thrid time today and it was only 1:00 p.m. When I was sure I was done for for now I got up.

I started with washing my face of the sweat that now clung onto my tanned skin. This was odd. Nothing to freak out over though. I mean it's not like this hasn't happened to me before. Trust me it had to be Jacob's cooking I mean not only am I surpirsed he didn't burn the kicthen down but that I was dead yet from eating his food.

I was worrying over nothing. This would all pass over soon enough and I could return back to bossing everyone else around just like usual, and have not a care in the world when they ran home crying. Nothing was wrong with I kept telling myself.

Right?

Jacob's POV

I finally caught sight of Seth walking towards my house. About time was all I could say.

Running up to him, I just had to ask the poor kid what was up.

"So Seth, how's Leah doing?" I asked, while we walked over to my house where Embry and Quil were waiting.

He sighed shaking his head." Not much better, in fact worse" He replied, I felt sorry for Leah. Yes, I just said I felt sorry for Leah the Bitch Clearwater. This wasn't normal.

"I thought that werewolves couldn't get sick," Embry said, cocking a brow. His comment made me think.

"Seth you sure she's ok?" I asked, this time with worry leaking into what I had said. I exchanged odd glances with Quila and Embry, something was up. Leah being Leah wouldn't tell us so we're just gonna have to wait for her to tell us what the hell is wrong with her.

"Maybe she found her first gray hair?" Quil suggested jokenly we all laughed at this, we all knew no one would want to be around when that day came.

"Seth man are you sure, cause we could chill at your place and annoy the truth of your sister" I said, that would for our enjoyment only.

"Yeah you would like that wouldn't you?" Seth asked punching me in the arm. I faked to be extremly hurt by his fist. Yeah we were probably just fussing about something that really was nothing to worry about. I mean the old bitchy Leah would be abck up in a day or two and be yelling at us until our ears bleed.

Leah's POV

"Really Em, I'm fine" I said over the phone to my cousin.

"Leah come on just try it for me please?" She asked, in a voice I couldn't refuse.

"Em...please don't make me take those, it's just going to be a big waste of my time and yours, the time you should be spending relaxing sicne your pregnant" I told her. Yes she was pregnant, we all found out right after her and Sam's honeymoon,but did that stop her from going all worry-wart over me? No.

"Just come over to my house then, I'm alone and it's so lonely here all by myself" She begged me. I rolled my eyes, she was famliy and like they say Blood is thicker then water.

"Fine I'll be there in ten to twenty minutes, but I'm using one of those things ok" I told her and she said yes. Pulling on a sweater I left for Emliy and Sam's house.

I was fine and there was no need to check some stupid thing to tell me I wasn't.

Jennifer Kane Martin: I am a high school teacher, and the dialogue and inner thoughts are PERFECT. However, the lack of capitalization, punctuation, and the typos are distracting. Don't let these get in the way of a potentially good story.
