The Hide-A-Way

It had been a few months since Nessie has decided to leave her family and Alec behind. This time she didn’t go very far she stayed close just one place none of them could get her. She was with Jake on the reservation. This was the safest she has felt in a long time. She wasn’t able to make the ultimatum that Aro had given her. She couldn’t break Alec’s heart and make him return to the Volturi. Everything that happened made her feel horrible but there was nothing she could do. Being on the reservation was hard at first with Sam and a few other wolves not liking her but after the first month they seemed to change and things got a little easier.

“Nessie I just got another call from your mother.” Jake was entering the living room. Nessie was in there reading a book. She put the book down and turned her attention to Jake.

“I know it is hard for you to keep this from them but it is for the best. I know the Volturi will come back soon and when they do they have to be able to say they don’t know where I am and to be able to show it.” She had thought it all out. Aro would return soon and when he did everyone would have to be able to show him that they didn’t know where she was.

“Your mom would be able to keep that from him. No one’s power works on her.” He was right but if she let her know then they would all soon find out.

“I can’t Jake I have to keep this a secret. I am sorry this puts you in a hard spot.” Jake had been best friends with her mother and they never kept something from each other. Nessie always thought that telling the truth about how she felt about Alec would set her free and she would be able to be happy. Aro made sure to take that away from her. Jake moved over to her.

“Renesme Cullen you should know by now that I stand by you through it all. I have always chosen you over your family and it won’t stop now.” He sat down and gave her a hug.

“Jake I do know but I know how you were close to my mom before everything I have ever heard.” She knew that Alec had stayed around. He was still living with her family. She just wished there was a way to tell him that she does care for him. Cutting off ties was hard but it was what was done to keep him safe.

“Jake have you been over to the house lately?”

“No I haven’t been there in weeks. I should go over in the next few weeks or they might start to catch on.” They came up with a plan that he would go over every so often to visit her family. This way they hopefully wouldn’t catch on that he wasn’t worried like the rest of them. Hearing that he hadn’t gone yet made her think of something that she knew would be risky.

“Would you be willing to drop a note off? I just want to let Alec and everyone know I am fine but I can’t bring it or they will catch me.” She saw the look in Jake’s eyes. He knew she was asking him a lot but he could also never say no to her.

“I can try. But if the note smells like me I am sure it will give them an idea where you are.” She didn’t think about that. With her dad being able to read his mind she couldn’t put him into much of a situation.

“You won’t drop it in the house. Drop it outside a door. I will put it in a bag that won’t catch your smell then all you have to do is when you go to leave is turn the bag upside down and it will fall out.” She thought she was genius that she figured this out.

“Fine we can try it.” He walked out of the house and out towards the woods. She knew he was going for a run. Before he would change his mind she went back to her room and started writing a letter.

Before she knew it she heard the door open and close. She looked at the clock and it had been two hours since Jake left. She had been writing the whole time. She had three ages and each page was for someone different. She heard the footsteps getting closer to her room. She turned her head and saw Jake has they stopped in front of the door.

“I just finished the last letter.” Nessie stood up and grab her body spray and sprayed the pages so there could be no scent of Jake on any of the pages. She didn’t want to risk anything. She then grabbed the plastic bag from her desk and folded the pages and put them into the bag. She sprayed around the inside of the bag to make sure that nothing would tip her parents off. Nessie turned and handed the bag to Jake.

“If this is what you want.” Nessie just nodded. Jake took the bag and headed back out the door. She followed him out the door and saw he got on his motorcycle and took off down the road towards where she lived. She watched him get smaller and smaller. It was all up to him now to make sure that nothing went wrong. Nessie was still trying to figure out how for the last few months Jake had kept her father from finding out where she was but he had managed to figure it out.

Nessie went back into the house and went back to the couch. Her book was still sitting on the cushion. She picked up her book and started to read where she had left off. It was one of the only things she had left to do. She didn’t go too far out on the reservation only because she was afraid what one of the wolves might do. There were days that it did get lonely but she just put on a smile and got through it. She knew that waiting for Jake to get back was going to be torcher.
