Walking down the street of my former hometown seemed so foreign. Everything looked the same but yet it didn't feel the same to me. My hand gripped the handle of the ice cream parlor and I started to pull it toward me when I heard one familiar voice.
"Oh my God!" cried out Cass as she ran up and hugged me. I let go of the handle and gave her a proper hug. "I can't believe it! You're here after so long!" she bubbled happily. She let go and guided me inside the ice cream parlor.
Cass settled into her high chair at the window table with her huge Vanilla Blood Delight sundae before her. One of Hollister's many Twilight related products. Yep. I took a sip of my Lemony Lime Acid Smoothie as she began chatting.
"So how was your school year?" she began as she played with her silver spoon. I shrugged it off since nothing really happened. Well, except for the fact that I met Jasper and his eccentric family and Jacob sidled into my life. Cass fiddled with her tote bag strap and began rummaging through it. I raised my eyebrows slightly since she typically wasn't this distracted. Maybe all the hype around this town's trends had gotten to her. After 2 minutes, she sat up with Eclipse in her right hand.
"I've already read this Lara," she slowly began as she held up the book for me to see. I nodded, having no idea where this was going. Cass flipped to the last few chapters and mused out loud.
"It's funny because as I was re-reading it," she noted, "I saw...your name in this book. I know, that seems hokey but you fit right into the book. Nothing happened between you and Bella but so much did between Jasper and Jacob. But it was relatively minor, like you were just a classmate and friend." She paused and studied my expression for any reaction.
"Isn't that just weird?"
I smiled slowly as I replied, "No kidding Cass. My life is already weird."
