Monday First Day of School:
Today was the day that I dreaded since the summer, the first day back to school. Normal teenagers-unlike myself of course- would have been excited to return to school to reunite with their friends but, I tried to put it off as much as possible. I even tried to stay up, thinking that the longer I stayed up the longer it would take for the next day to come but, the only outcome of that experiment was huge dark marks under my eyes. So here I am, looking in the mirror to make sure I looked presentable. I wore an oversized shirt that fell off one of my shoulders exposing my white tank underneath it, paired with dark wash skinnies and black ballet flats. Here goes nothing.
When I get to school I found myself squeezing through crowds of people, mostly the incoming freshmen. Looking down at my schedule I see that I have Biology first and. . . I'm already two minutes late. Great. What felt like forever, I finally approach my first class. I walk into the class and all eyes stare at me, including the teacher who was in the middle of his "be prepared to work" lecture. I scanned the class for an available seat but, the only seat left is next to the braniac Edward Cullen, up in the front of the classroom. As I make my way over to the seat next to him he doesn't look to pleased that I'm his partner for this class. Well the feeling is mutual, my friend.
"As I was saying, we're going to be doing a lot of lab work which will require you and your partner to both contribute to these assignments. If one person doesn't help out, it will effect the both of you." Mr. Banner said. In the middle of his speech I started to doze off. I felt someone nudge my shoulder, waking me up from my sleep. I turned to my right to see Edward glaring at me. He opened his notebook and ripped a piece of paper out, scribbling furiously. He slides the piece of paper my way. I looked at the paper in front of me questionably but, reached over to grab the paper opening it. It read:
Since it's obvious that your my partner for the rest of the year, I must say that I'm not failing this class because of you. I'm also not doing all of the work myself, so you need to get your act together and pay attention. This class is over in 2 minutes and you haven't copied a single word from the board.
I look up at the board and was surprised at how much notes were on the board. I couldn't copy all of this down in two minutes. It was the first day and first class of the day and I was already starting off on the wrong foot.
Edward sighed and slid his notebook to me. "You can borrow my notes but give it back during lunch" He said seriously. I nodded and started copying down the notes from his notebook.
I was pissed that Angela, my best friend since kindergarten, wasn't in the same lunch period as me. It was bad enough we didn't even have classes together. She had lunch fourth period, which is still in the morning so I didn't even know why that was even an option for a lunch period. After I got off the cafeteria line with a ham sandwich and water bottle on my tray, I walked outside the lunch room to the few tables that were located outdoors. I didn't see anyone that I would actually socialize with so, I sat down at the nearest empty table and started eating my lunch.
"Um. Can I sit here?" someone asked. I glanced up to see a girl around my age, with a short stylish bob starring at me with a tray in her hands. I just nod my head and she sits down across from me smiling widely.
"I'm Alice," she said politely.
"Bella," I stated lamely, I took a bite of my sandwich. I wasn't use to starting conversations. It felt weird, for me at least. I didn't know what to say so I just stayed quiet eating my lunch.
"I'm surprised it's so nice out today," Alice said, obviously trying to start a conversation with me.
"Yeah" I replied taking a sip of my water.
The whole lunch period we both sat silently smiling at each other occasionally when our eyes would meet. The bell rang and we both got up grabbing our lunch trays.
"Talk to you later, Bella," Alice smiled walking away.
I was making my way over to the trash can when I hear someone call my name. I turned around to find Edward in front of me.
"I told you to return my notebook at lunch," He said adjusting his backpack straps. Oh, I had forgot about that. I was trying to figure out a way to hold my tray and dig in my bag at the same time. "Here, let me help you with that," He grabs my tray and he walks over to the garbage to throw away my food. I took that opportunity to dig through my bag to get his navy blue notebook. "Here you go," I said, handing him his notebook. "Thanks" I added not wanting to seem ungrateful. His lips curved up slightly revealing a crooked smile. I don't know why but I blushed. Edward smiling like that made him look, I don't know. . . sexy? He raised his eyebrows at my reaction shoving his hands in his jean pockets.
"I'll see you later" He said, back away slowly. I nodded my head mumbling a "yeah". I turned around quickly and started speed walking to my next class. I looked back in the direction where Edward was going to find him starring at me also. We both looked away quickly. What the hell is going on here?
Finally the first day of school was over. I walked outside to the sun shining in my face. The cool wind blowing my hair in different directions. It felt nice and I smiled to myself. I looked around the parking lot searching for my dingy red pick up truck, that piece of crap got my dad around when he was a teenager and he passed it down to me. I admit I love that car and it amazes me at how long this car survived. I dig into my bag and get my keys out. I let my eyes roam around the environment stopping on a certain bronze haired boy. When our eyes met he smiles that smile I was beginning to adore. I waved shyly before hurrying up to my red pick up truck and driving off .
