Fog formed on the window Bella had her forehead leaned against while she stared out the window of her bedroom taking in all that was Forks. Not exactly ugly but far from what she liked that was for sure. The cold made everything sheen with clear blue, you could see it in the air almost. It wasn't thick like heat but the very opposite, thin and clingy. It hung on the tall fir trees around the yard in the form of crystallized dew on the early morning and the grass below it. It stuck to the house and chilled the bones of cars all down the street to the point almost all of them refused to start unless they were properly heated and had their windshields scrapped. Cold was the reason Bella couldn't wear shorts and a tank top to the first day of school but instead was forced into wearing these hip hugging jeans and long sleeve shirt with a checkered scarf and a blan grey hoodie. She missed Arizona.
Sighing she pulled herself off the windowsill to go on an all out shoe-hunt for her boots Rene had bought for her as a parting gift for when she got to Forks. Upon arrival Bella had cast them somewhere in the depths of this messy room out of sheer protest for not wanting to be here but now she thoroughly regretted it as she needed them. Growing frustrated with herself for being careless she glanced at the clock, seeing that she only had 10 minutes before she had to leave for school. Where had she put the damn things? Oh wait. Dropping to her knees Bella crawled halfway under her bed and began throwing things out from under all over her floor until her fingers tips brushed against the box that held her boots. Smiling with satisfaction she pulled the box out with her and hastily removed the lid to pull the black knee high boots out.
"Um Bella," She heard Charlie's voice behind her causing her to pause halfway through lacing up the first boot, "what are you doing?"
An amused smirk graced Bella's features when she saw that all the clothes she had thrown out from under her bed had ended up on Charlie's head and shoulders. He must have been standing there the whole time. Still smiling she finished lacing up the first boot and slipped on the other.
"Nothing sorry Dad. I was only looking for something and I forgot I shoved everything from Arizona under my bed," Finished now with her boots she stood and grabbed her messenger bag off her bed, slipping it on over her shoulder enjoying the familiar weight of it being there, "But I must say, you wear my clothes nicely."
Charlie sloughed his daughters clothes from him with a scoff and a raised eyebrow, "Ready for school?" Bella nodded which in turn made Charlie nod, "Be safe. Learn lots. Don't do drugs.
Bella rolled her eyes at Charlie's choice of words rather than a goodbye but smiled politely anyway before passing him to go downstairs where she grabbed her lunch out of the fridge and her keys off the hook. Charlie gave her a wave from the top of the stairs which she returned then shut the wooden door behind her. The brisk early morning air of Forks greeted Bella nicely with a shiver as its cold snaked its way through her pathetic excuse of winters clothes. Already shivering and cranky from the weather Bella got into her step side Chevy, a welcoming gift from Charlie, and shut the door behind her with much force due to its old beat up condition. It roared to life after only a couple tries at turning it over but that didn't bother her much because to be completely honest she loved the truck. It was old and weathered and it clearly didn't want to be here just as much as she did. Smiling she cranked the heat up on high and sat there a few minutes waiting for the cab to fill with heat before she backed out of the driveway and began her journey to every teens worst nightmare. High school.
Frowning she glared at her radio while she had been trying to search for good stations with one hand. All her old radio would pick up was an oldies station, a country blues station, and an Opera channel. Finally she gave up and plugged her converter into the cassette player at a stop light. Once she located her ipod she plugged it in and began searching through her mass amounts of music until she found something that matched her mood then she came across some Dev she forgot she had put on here. Shrugging she hit play and turned it up before going back to waiting for the light to turn green. Out of the corner of her eye she noticed a silver Volvo pull up on the left side of her truck and a red drop top Mercedes on her right. It seemed odd and out of place to Bella to see such expensive looking cars here in this god forsaken town so she made sure to get a good look at both of them.
The Volvo on her left led her to assume that it was occupying only two seeing as there was a driver (Of course) even though she could see him and a man riding shotgun, no one in the back. He turned to look at Bella after she had spent some time studying his features. Curly golden blonde hair fell softly over his pale forehead to rest on his brow above his soft amber eyes. Under Bella's stare he smiled smally and nodded his head like a gentleman which flustered her and brought her back to reality. That being she was staring at a stranger. How rude of her. So how does she fix it? By staring at the strangers in the other car.
They were already looking at her, or rather, at her truck with detest. The blond driving looking at its blotchy paint job with a wrinkled nose before shaking her head and going back to glare at the stop light ahead, impatiently tapping her perfect nails on the expensive looking steering wheel. In the back seat a massive looking man with buzz cut brown hair was bobbing his head to an unheard beat, probably something playing in their car. Unless Bella had her music turned up to loud. Panicking she hastily turned it down to the point it was nearly off and sure enough he stopped bobbing his head. Frowning he looked at like he was a little hurt she had killed the music. A light blush crept to her cheeks and she offered him an apologetic smile. Now that her music was down she could hear a twinkling laugh that immediately stole her attention. Her eyes rested on the little woman riding shotgun who was looking back at Bella with the most marvelous smile. Her brown hair was splayed out in all sorts of directions in a way that just made you want to run your fingers through it and her tawny eyes sparkled with amusement. The girl tilted her head towards the guy in the back and smirked in Bella's direction. At first Bella didn't understand then it clicked. She wanted her to turn her music back up so the guy in the back could keep listening. Bella eyed them both before she shrugged and turned it back up, now on a completely different song but with Dev you can't go wrong; there will always be bass in it to bob your head to. This seemed to earn her points cause the big guy in the back grinned happily and the girl in the front nodded laughing whereas the driver just shook her head some more.
Above the three cars the light turned green and before Bella had even began pressing on the accelerator both cars had sped off at what had to be an illegal speed. Well that was embarrassing, Bella thought to herself as she putted along. Lucky for her all them seemed to be way to old to go to high school so there was no way she going to see them again. Almost laughing at the thought of what she would do if they were there she took a left into the school parking lot only to see guess who?
Parking as far away from their cars as possible she killed the engine and stared out the window for what seemed like forever. Oh this was going to be painfully awkward. Okay at this point she had two choices, the first being can own up to being wrong about them not going here and walk right past them chin up or two she can hide in her truck with her head down until they go into the building. Be brave or be a total coward? She glanced in her review mirror at them getting out of their separate cars to meet in the middle and strike up a conversation. Oh great. Of course they knew each other. Definitely be a coward. Before she crawled down under her dashboard and sat with the peddles she froze. This is a new start in a new town right? In Arizona she was shy quiet Bella, clumsy trip over her own feet so stay out of her way Bella. Is that really how she wanted to be here? Setting her jaw she shook her head at her own thoughts. Silently she unplugged her ipod and grabbed her bag before opening the door and stepping out into the freezing cold air. Shivering she slung her bag over her shoulder and put in her headphones, jamming her keys in her jeans pocket and stuffing her lunch in her messenger bag then slammed the door shut.
Walking up to the school building she spied on the group of students who had been at that stop light with her. She was going to lie, they were all very attractive in their own light. Each in nice fashionable clothes and they all seemed to have this air about them. Unapproachable and dangerously inviting at the same time. The shortest one there seemed to that pixie like girl with a nice smile and the biggest one clearly that bear of a man who was holding hands with the super model blonde who hated her truck. She clearly saw the driver of the Volvo now though. A tall lean man with rustic hair spiked in all different kinds of directions like he had spent all night in bed working on it to get it like that. She suppressed a laugh at the sight of it. He was cute just not her type. She liked the looks of that little pixie more. The closer she approached they started to look at her. Probably jealous of her stupid boots she had lost and found. To that thought she couldn't control her laugh that she let out.
Great job Bella, now you look like a lunatic laughing at nothing. Top rate kid. Oh why not? She already did anyway. She certainly got a round of puzzled looks from the group for that but she focused mainly on the goofy grin the bear-man gave her and the little pixies smirk. Feeling she had already made a fool of herself she decided, why the hell not go all the way? She gave them a nice, obvious look at me wave before gracefully tripping on the first step of the flight of stairs the led into the school building. Smooth Bella. Were they laughing? She strained her hearing to check. Yup that was definitely laughing. With a sigh she picked herself off the step along with her ipod which had come out of her pocket and ears when she had fallen and checked her bag to see if anything came out. The flap was open but she didn't see anything laying on the steps where she had fallen so she assumed she hadn't dropped anything.
"Here. I think you dropped this." Bella turned around to see her blue notebook in the hands of a smiling brunette offering it to her. Nodding Bella took it from her hands and shoved it back in her bag, silently promising to Bella proof it later in case this happened again.
"Thanks." The girl nodded, glancing at the group over there still laughing.
"I'm Angela by the way. You must be new here. The Chief's daughter is my guess?"
Bella sighed. Of course. Little town, loud mouths; it never fails. "That would be me. Bella Swan. The klutz so you had better watch out or I might accidentally take you out." Bella didn't mean to come across so rude but their laughing was unnerving. She looked over at them and glared long enough to be sure they could see her glare. It seemed to make Angela nervous.
"Look we don't mess with them okay? I thought I would let you know since your new here Bella. I'm only saying this so you know." The look on the girls face was so serious Bella couldn't help but believe her when she said it, "Anyway it was nice meeting you. I'm off to class. Good luck with school today. Maybe we'll have some classes together?"
"Yeah maybe." Bella smiled at the girl even though she didn't feel like smiling. Her ego was bruised sorely from the fall and Angela's words had left her daunted. Her feet took her up the steps while her mind took her somewhere completely different. Angela had said they didn't mess with them; she had spoke it like they were a family of serial killers prone to going on a killing rampage if they got an F on their report card. There was no way they could be terrifying creatures no one spoke to right? Had Bella just made a huge mistake waving to them? Would they zero her out later and kill her in front of the whole school to send a message? Dear god.
No way, she thought as she entered the office to get her schedule from the office lady, she was fore sure over reacting. They were people like the rest of them. Just really pretty people with really expensive cars and a close knit group people were terrified of. Yeah that was it. They were just at the top of the social pyramid at the this school and their status intimidated others of a lower standard. That was all.
Bella repeated this to herself on her way to her first period English IV which most people would consider a high English class to start out in but in Arizona she had taken a lot of advanced English classes already so technically this class was something she had already learned. This school just didn't offer any college level classes so she settled for this. Studding her classes for a second she pocked the paper and entered the classroom. It already was nearly full which didn't bother Bella. What bothered her was how the room quieted when she entered and how everyone's eyes were on her. Even when she got some things from the teacher, a nice professional woman who could only be in her late 30's, before she was finally forced to pick a seat beside someone. Bella's chocolate brown eyes searched the room. There were a few eager boys pushing their buddies out of the chairs next to them so there would be room for her. There was no way she was sitting next to them. A couple girls put their purses on the seat next to them clearly making it known they didn't want her there. That's fine, Bella huffed internally, she didn't want to sit next to that kind of girl anyway. Just about when Bella had given hope and was about to sit by a blond guy giving her pleading puppy dog eyes she heard someone clear their throat from the back of the room. Dread washed over Bella when she saw who it was.
"You can sit here." She said sweetly with that gorgeous smile of hers. God save me, Bella whispered silently as she took her seat beside the pixie who may or may not be a serial killer.
"I'm Alice." The pixie offered tilting her head smiling sweetly. This close to her Bella noticed how magnificent the girl smelled. It was intoxicating and definitely strong if she could smell it without even being in her personal space.
"And I'm the girl who tripped and you all laughed at." Bella gave Alice the cold shoulder as she dug into her bag, which was a WWII medic bag she had bought at some side-of-the-road store with her friends a while back in Arizona, to pull out her thick blue notebook she had dropped this morning and a gel pen.
"I'm really sorry they laughed at you," The hurt in Alice's voice made Bella take the time to look at her, Alice's were pleading and sad as they searched for Bella's, "if it makes you feel better I punched them in the stomach for it. Except Rose, I just glared at her. But I promise that's just as bad. She got my point. And you definitely shut up Jasper when you glared. Nice touch by the way." By the end Alice was smiling again. It was infectious Bella found out when she realized she was smiling too.
"Yeah I'm kind of scary watch out for me." Bella turned her attention from Alice to flip open her notebook to a clean page and uncap her pen.
"Oh really? Is this your 'Ye be warned for I shall smite thee' thing?" Alice laughed at her own joke which Bella didn't mind, her laugh was pleasant.
"No its more of me warning you that I play rough. So don't mess with the big kids." Glancing over at Alice with a devilish smile Bella saw that Alice too was smiling somewhat mischievously.
"Well I'll have you know so do I and we are the biggest kids. So you had best watch out," Alice paused chuckling to herself as if she had some inside joke that she shared only with herself, "We bite."
"Mhmm. I'll keep it in mind. I was warned to stay away from you I'll have you know."
"Well I don't know why. I happen to an absolutely wonderful person to be around. Look at this smile? Can you deny this smile?" This time it was Bella who laughed.
"Charming. Your arrogance is charming." The smaller girl nudged Bella playfully to signal her pouting.
"I'll have you know I am not arrogant, I'm blatantly honest. There's a difference."
"Oh well in that case please excuse me." Alice shrugged as if it didn't bother her resulting in them laughing together. Watching Alice's lithe shake with laugher Bella smiled softly; Alice was really cute. Alice noticed Bella had stopped laughed and was just watching her which made Alice give Bella a stunning grin. For a moment Bella couldn't seem to place herself in the classroom atmosphere they were in fac tin instead she found herself breathless and completely smitten with the little beauty before her. The bell to start class brought Bella back to class with a jerk. Her elbow hit the corner of their table hard and she barely suppressed the curse words that wanted to vent through her lips.
That was the second time Bella had done something stupid today looking at Alice. If she kept this up she was going to kill herself by the end of the day.
That's it for now, chapter one is complete. So if you like this let me know so I can update chapter doz. Because I have a few plans for this story. If you can't tell already? it's a little different form the original. And it will keep being different. Lots of love! Me.
