During her trip to the beach, Bella meets Jacob Black, the youngest son of Charlie’s friend, Billy Black.  While she is talking to Jacob, Lauren interjects that it is too bad any of the Cullens couldn’t come on their trip; one of the boys from the reservation answers that the Cullens do not come to La Push and offers no other explanation.

Jacob explains to her that an old Quileute legend describes a group of beings known as the cold ones.  One pack of cold ones came to the tribe during the time of Jacob’s great-grandfather, and made an agreement with the Quileutes to stay off the Quileute land if the Quileutes did not rat them out to the pale faces.  This particular pack that made the truce claimed that they did not hunt humans, but drank from animals instead; however, the Quileutes still did not trust them absolutely.  He then says that the Cullen family is supposed to be that same group of cold ones that met with his ancestors all those years ago.  He shrugs the story off as a local legend and nothing more, but Bella seems to see some truth in it.  She promises not to say anything to anyone, because Jacob could get in trouble for sharing the story.  He also says that the Quileutes still do not like the Cullens and will not go to the hospital now that Carlisle works there.
