I've been best friends with Edward since we were in grade 9. Alice, his sister, became my first friend at my new high school, Forks High. We had a few classes together and she invited me to sit at her family's table with her. I was, and continue to be, a shy person so I hesitated before realizing it was better than being a loner and sitting by myself. Plus, she gave me this adorable puppy-eyed look that almost broke my heart and there was no way to turn her down. That day, at lunch, I met the boy that changed my life. Edward Cullen. Even then, he was by far the hottest boy at our high school. Coppery-golden dishevelled hair, beautiful green eyes that could dazzle anyone and a crooked smile that made a girl's knees weak. You might be wondering if I pursued him, but, unfortunately, the answer to that would be a sad No. He happens to be a couple of years older so that may have added to the challenge. Besides, he only saw me as a friend, at most, his little sister. There was no way such an angel could like plain old me. Dull brown eyes, long boring brown hair, so clumsy I could trip over air...I took some dance classes in grade 10 which helped with my clumsiness but I still hate wearing heels because they make it easier to go back to my old habits. Due to my realisation that I had slim-to-none chances of attracting Edward Cullen's attention and getting him to see me for a potential girlfriend instead of his little sister, I decided it was better to tuck away my real feelings for him and play safe by building a friendship. That way, I would at least have Edward in my life, not the best choice but a realistic one I had to learn to live with. It was hard the first few times trying to not give myself away, especially considering the fact that I'm an awful liar. That was until I became a good enough actress and one of his best friends. He's intelligent and can see through anything, but, fortunately or unfortunately (depending on how you look at it), cannot see through my act. I must be really good to be able to fool him into thinking I can never see him as more than a friend. Since he's older he is more experienced, too. He's had a lot of girlfriends, all of them with model-like looks, which comes as no surprise considering how gorgeous he is. That, unfortunately, also led to his last relationship with Tanya, a Russian beauty, who broke his heart. He loved her and how was he repaid? He caught her cheating on him with a boy on the high school's football team, Jacob Black. Yesterday, while we were driving around, spending time with each other and looking for a place we could have dinner at, he promised he would never fall in love. I don't think he understands that not every girl has the same goal of cheating on her loving boyfriend. Plus, what kind of person cheats on someone who is so beautiful, inside and out? But, hey, you know what they say: people don't know what they have until they lose it. If I ever got the chance to be his girlfriend, I would treasure him and be proud that he is mine. The fact is that none of the girlfriends he had ever known him as well as I do. I realize that he is not like any other guy. His room is immaculate, and he is more organized than any other boy I met. I know his favourite colour is green and that it matches the colour of his eyes. I could describe his eyes forever, because they are so beautiful, they portray his soul, with the thousand of different specks of green, and they happen to be the same as his dad's. I could tell you all his favourite songs, that he loves to argue, that he's born on the 17th and that he is one of the kindest people ever. He takes his good looks from his parents and so do his sisters, it seems. His sisters both know I have a crush on him, that being an understatement, but they are sworn to secrecy. I imagine his parents may know since nothing goes unnoticed in their family. They all encourage me to tell him how I feel because all of them are sure he likes me back. Alice, the little she-devil, keeps trying to set us up. Next week is prom and I wonder how that will go considering I have to go through a whole day of shopping and another of Barbie-me. Alice and Rose promised they were going to do my hair and make-up and that prom would be the day Edward will realize we were meant to be. As if! I mean, logically speaking, why would prom be the day the light bulb turns on? If he really liked me or even noticed me, wouldn't he tell me or ask me out sooner? That would make sense, wouldn't it? However, Alice is always right. I can't explain it, she has this gut-feeling and the times she is serious about something, it always goes the way she explains it would. It's crazy; my best friend is a pixie who can see the future...How ironic is that? I guess the only thing I can do now is wait and hope for the best. Only time will tell...
Next chapter is prom. So, what do you think will happen? Reviews are welcome!
