I don't own anything related to or taken directly from Twilight. I wish!
Chapter 1: Moving into School
Alright! I thought to myself. You can do this! Just take a deep breath. Inhale, exhale. Nope. Still nervous!
Our car pulls up to a large brick building that looks older than it should. My dad looks at me and gives me a reassuring smile before heading out of the car. I take another deep breath and step out as well.
My freshman year of college. Wow! I can't believe I am here. A year ago, I was accepted into the school I had always dreamed of going to and now here I was…moving into the same dorm I had always imagined staying in. While I was so excited, I was also incredibly nervous.
All of my friends went to different schools together. I feel like the lone wolf (haha! I so didn't mean to do that) around here. All the other students moving in seem to know everyone that passes their car. I just grab my bags out of my dad's trunk and look at the ground while I walk up to the entrance.
"Name?" A perky blonde asks me when I enter the building.
"Swan, Isabella Swan." I mumble and my cheeks instantly turn a dark shade of red. This was one of my most embarrassing quirks. I guess it is because it tells everyone how shy and insecure I am, something I would much rather keep to myself.
"Ah yes. Here is your key and your room is two floors up and to the left. I hope you have a great year here Isabella!" She smiles sincerely at me and I smile politely back at her.
"Alright kiddo, lead the way." My dad waves his hand in front of him to allow me to take the lead. I walk over to the elevators and press the number for the third floor. Other kids and their parents have crammed into the elevator with us and it starts to become uncomfortable quickly. Thankfully the ride is short.
Charlie and I push our way out of the elevator and head out into the hallway. We make a left and after about 10 other doors we are standing in front of a door with the names 'Isabella' and 'Angela' on it. I guess this it. I put the key in the lock and when the door is unlocked, I slowly turn the knob.
When I enter the room I do a quick to see if my roommate is there yet. Nope. I exhale loudly and continue into the room. It is an average sized room with white walls and maroon carpet. There are two twin beds and two large desks. Each girl has her own three-drawer dresser and closet. I quickly claim my bed and desk and drop my stuff on top of them.
"Yeah..ummm..so.. I guess.. I guess I will leave you to it then Bells." Charlie mumbles while rubbing the back of his neck with his hand.
"Oh, ok. Thanks for coming up with me Charlie!" I run over and give him an awkward hug.
"No problem Bella." He pulls me away and looks into my eyes. "Have fun kid. Not too much fun, but have fun!" He crushes me back to his chest and then walks out the door. I walk over to my window and wave to him as he pulls away.
Great! All alone now! I decide to start unpacking my stuff and that seems to occupy my time for a little while until I hear the door being unlocked. My heart races as I stare at the knob.
A few seconds later, a pair of little boys come running into the room followed by a tall girl with long black hair and glasses. She is followed by two other people who are holding each other close. I can only assume that these are her parents.
"Davie, Jamie, stop running around right now!" Her parents yell in unison.
"Umm. Hi. I am Isabella. You can call me Bella." I say timidly.
"Hi Bella, I am Angela. Sorry about my little brothers." She looks down and blushes a little. Somehow I think that we will become good friends. At least I hope so.
"Hey! I didn't know we shared a bathroom! Hi guys! Oh my goodness! Isn't this just so awesome! I am Alice! I live well, I live a bathroom away." She giggles and holds out her hand. I look at it for a minute and then shakily reach out my hand to shake hers.
"Hi Alice. I am Isabella, you can call me Bella." I say with my head down.
"Hi Bella! You are really pretty! I bet we will be best friends!" She predicts. I of course blush a bright red. I swear, I could give Rudolph a run for his money.
"I'm Angela." She whispers from her spot next to me and shakes Alice's hand.
"Well I will leave you two to get your stuff sorted out. See you guys later!" She shouts over her shoulder as she heads back to her room through the shared bathroom.
Angela and I look at each other and shrug before she turns back to her family and I return to sorting through my things. This is going to be one interesting year with that girl living next door. I am sure of it.
"Ugh! I can't believe you talked me into staying at this stupid dorm Jasper!" I groan to my best friend who is sitting in the driver's seat. We have just pulled up to the old looking brick building we stayed at for our freshman year and Jasper insisted on staying there again for our sophomore year.
"Come on! We will be staying with all the hot freshman girls! Gives you a better chance of scoring with one of them since they haven't heard about your reputation yet." He playfully punches me in the arm.
We both step out of the car and grab a couple boxes from the trunk before heading inside.
"Name?" A peppy blonde asks as we enter the front door.
I set my boxes down and she just stares at me with wide-gawking eyes. Silly freshman girl. She was kind of cute..What am I saying.. this girl was hot!
"That's funny. I was just going to ask you the same thing. How about you answer first and then I will tell you mine." I wink at her.
"Tanya. My name is Tanya."
"Well Tanya, it's nice to meet you. I am Edward, Edward Cullen." I stare into her eyes for a while before Jasper clears his throat. We both look at him.
"Can we have our key..Tanya?" He asks obviously annoyed with my flirting. I suppress a chuckle while Tanya clumsily looks at her list and hands us our keys.
"Thank you Tanya. I will see you around I am sure." I whisper into her ear. She starts to wobble as I walk away with a smirk on my face.
"I guess this could be fun." I say to Jasper once we are on the elevator.
"Oh yeah. So much fun.." He replies sarcastically.
We unlock the door to our old room and each of reclaim our old bed/desk/dresser/closet and throw our stuff on top of them. We will get around to unpacking eventually.
"Dude, do you think we have the same suitemates as last year?" Jasper asks as we are scarfing down the pizza we ordered a few minutes ago.
"Oh god! I hope not! That Mike is such a sleazy dork! He follows me around like a little puppy trying to copy my moves with girls."
Jasper nearly chokes on his pizza with laughter.
"You have moves?"
"Yeah! Of course I do! How do you think I have such a high success rate?"
"Oh yeah, you are a real babe magnet alright!" He replies sarcastically.
"What girl could resist this?" I say as I wave my hands over my body.
"I have no idea.." Jasper chuckles. "What about Mike's roommate? That drunken idiot! He is always throwing up in the bathroom from all the parties he goes to!"
"Hey guys!" Mike and Ben say together as they stand in our doorway to the bathroom.
"Hey!" Jasper and I reply with fake smiles plastered across our face.
What a great year this will be!
