A/N: Hey guys! I know that I have a lot of different stories going on. I have them all written down in my journal, I just have to type them up. (Can you believe that they're almost finished?) This came to me in band when Mr. Manuel (my band teacher) was testing the trumpets. So, I hope you like it, it's not that long though!
My mom and I were riding down the crowded street to the Phoenix Airport. As she drove, I was looking out the window and saying my goodbye to the sun. My mom, her husband Phil and I were all moving up to Washington. Phil and my mom were moving to Seattle because Phil had landed a position as the shortstop on the Seattle Mariners team. I was going to move in with my dad in a little town called Forks, just a couple hours away from Seattle.
My mom and I loaded up onto the plane. My mom was asleep during the whole flight. I stayed up and watched Bob the Builder with the four year old in front of me.
When we got off the plane I turned to my mom and hugged her tight. This was the last time I would see her for a couple of months. That was the longest time I've been away from her. But I couldn't believe that I was actually moving in with Charlie.
She hugged me back and once again tried to convince me to stay with her. "Are you sure that you want to do this Sweetie? You could get a free ticket for the baseball game!"
She had almost got me with this last week. But I convinced her that I could watch the game just perfectly in Forks with Charlie. She let me go and looked me in the eye.
"If you want to leave, just call me ok Bella?" she said. I nodded. I picked up my suit case (which had was all of the Washington clothing) and my duffel bag (which had all of my volleyball and cheerleading stuff in it).
"I love you Mom!" I said, turning to walk away. "Tell Phil I love him too and good luck!" I started walking and found my flight to the airport in Port Angeles.
The flight to Port Angeles wasn't nearly as exciting. It didn't have Bob the Builder. I slept through most of it; dreaming of what my life in Forks would be like.
The plane slowly began it's decent and landed. When I got off the plane the first thing I saw was my dad, Billy (who was surprisingly in a wheelchair. Note to self: ask Dad why Billy is in one later) and Billy's son Jacob.
I walked up to them; it took them a moment to recognize me. Charlie hadn't seen me since the previous summer when we went to California for two weeks and Billy and Jacob hadn't seen me since I was 14.
Charlie finally got over it and came up to me and gave me a hug. "It's great to have you here Bells." He said. "Here, let me grab that." He said, picking up my duffel bag.
"Careful! That has my volleyball stuff in it!" I said, not wanting to hurt my volleyball equipment at all.
"Sorry. I'll try to be more careful." He said, sarcastically. Wow, I thought it was only my mom that gave me my sarcasticness.
He headed towards the exit of the airport. I followed him with Jacob and Billy following me.
It was a one-hour ride to Forks from Port Angeles. The ride was basically filled with my chatter about how my cheerleading squad was chosen number one in the nation.
The three of the men didn't really seem to care. They were more interested in how the football team did in the nation. They got like number 5… I couldn't remember. It didn't matter anyway.
"Hey Bella?" Charlie said, a slight giddy sound in his voice.
"Yah Dad?" I answered.
"I've got a surprise for you when we get home." He said.
Oh great, a surprise. I absolutely hated surprises. They always seemed to turn out horribly wrong.
"Really?" I asked, my uncertainty showing up in my voice.
"No, I'm sure that you'll like it." Billy said from the back of Cruiser. Did I mention that Charlie's a cop? That's why it's taking our normally 1 hour drive even a half an hour longer.
We finally got to Charlie's place, my- home; and I saw my surprise. It was a truck. Not just any truck, it was Billy's old one. He was giving it to me as a welcoming present and because Billy couldn't drive it anymore.
I gave my thanks, walked upstairs to my room, and collapsed onto my bed. I had to start my new school the next day and I wasn't exactly looking forward to it.
School was great, except for that I just had a special knack for getting people's attention.
Oh well. I thought. I'll just let everything go where it may and hope that it'll turn out ok.
After that, I fell right asleep, into a night of dreams, nightmares, and images of the future.
