An Interactive Twilight Experience.
Hey, am Embry Call, am 27, I love mechanics, myths and legends. I really don’t know much from my family other than Liseli my mom, and that her parents died a few years ago. For many years in the past, not knowing who my father was caused discord between me and her. Everytime I brought the subject up would cause an argument between the two of us.
The two people in my life that helped me stay happy would be my best friends, Jacob and Quil. Don’t try to make fun of my name or Quil’s or we will tag team and get it right back at you though.
When I was 16, I started feeling different than most kids my age. One night, I was having an argument with mom about my father, and as always she eluded my questions, changing the subject. That is when I felt it…the anger building up inside me like it never has before. Knowing something was wrong with me, I just headed out without saying anything and ran as far as I could. Then it came… just as I hit the forest to get to my fav spot to cool down: the first phase… scared me so bad… took me a few hours to calm down enough with sam, jared and paul’s help to be able to phase back. For a long time, I knew I had to keep it from mom to protect her. That is, until a few months ago…
I was searching for something mom wanted me to get in the basement when I came up on a picture of a man with my mother. Somehow, I instantly knew who the man on this picture was, and stormed back up to demand what this was. That is when she finally confessed that I was half brother with Sam Uley, and my father was Joshua Uley. That’s the one time I lost control of my temper, and the time she found out about me, confirming what she suspected for so long without telling me. I went away to college living with a friend without really making peace with her.
A good while after I came back, I ended up meeting my father for the first time in my life... I still can't understand why he came back only to take off so suddenly after finally agreeing to spend some time getting to know us.
I'm sorry I'm not here today as planned to meet you but with all we've discussed last night, I feel like I need some more time to process all I found out. I was very happy to see that even with all I put you both through, you have grown into two…Continue

We tend to take for granted the presence of the people we love around us. A good example: when we are kids, we don’t hesitate to tell our parents how much we love them. The older we get, the less we tend to tell them how much we care about them, especially in our teenage years. If someone gets bullied or harassed by his or her peers as a kid, that person may tend to close on themselves more. When I got my friend’s call about her father heading to the ER and being hospitalised, remembering…Continue

Christmas time is once again on our doorstep and once again, as crazy driven as ever. People rushing to the stores to get gifts for everyone they care about. Never really having had a lot of money in the family, it helped me stay more in touch with the traditional side of Christmas. Being surrounded by family and friends, in my case as well, with mom being from another tribe, it gave me insight into two different tribe's traditions on this time of year. Every year, mom and I decorate the…Continue

One of my favorite summer activities around the reservation would be without a doubt going cliff jumping with my brothers. I know our moms always cringe at the sound of us mentioning going there but there’s nothing we can do about it. Before all the changes in my life, we used to jump only from the smaller cliff, and never by ourselves but since then, that cliff isn’t much of a challenge anymore. I remember when Jared, Paul and Sam took me to the high cliff four years ago after I joined…Continue
