I woke up slowly, blinking at the sun that filtered through the trees. Christ, I hadn't meant to sleep the entire night here. The grass around me was covered in dew and I knew when I stood up I'd be soaking wet. Plus, there was a tree root digging right into my back that I;d somehow not noticed the night before.
I was ridiculously thirsty and had a bit of a headache, but nothing too bad. I silently thanked myself for not completely overdoing it the night before. I lay still, slowly sifting through the memories of the previous night, going through everything that had happened and trying to get it all straight in my head. There was a weird combination of elation and fear welling up inside of me.
Elation, because I knew whatever happened, Leah was there, and we'd get through whatever we had to together. Fear...well, maybe not fear, exactly. More like nervousness.; I really, really didn't want to face Bella and the Cullens. The thought of looking Bella in the face and telling her that I didn't want her anymore made me cringe. Not because it wasn't true, but I had been in love with her for the better part of two years. The last thing I wanted to do was to hurt her.
But Leah...Leah took precedence. She had to, she was my imprint. And as much as I didn't want to hurt Bella, I wanted Leah so, so much more.I turned my head to watch her, still curled up on my chest. I couldn't tell whether or not she was asleep.
