Hiya Everyone! I know this has been done before but I love making my own twists on things that other people have done. This first chapter is really just the backstory, just to get you into it and see what reaction I get. Basically whats happening is Edward never came back in New Moon, and Bella didn't jump. Instead of crying, Bella joined a band called the Midnight Rebels, an all genre cover band. She is the drummer of the group, and well on her way to becoming famous. But what happens when someone she recognises is in the crowd one night? Read on to find out!

Disclaimer: I wish Iowned Twilight, however my name is not printed on the front cover of millions of books, so therefore I am not the owner. That also goes for all the songs I used/mentioned.

BELLA POV

I sat there drumming my fingers against the table I was sat at. Without even realising it, I was drumming the rhythm to "Me Vs The World" by Halo Friendlies(AN: This song was stuck in my head so it's in there ;-) highly recommended) and I was humming along to the tune. We were sceduled to be at the venue by 6pm tonight, and I was meeting up with Rose and Toni later on to get ready. We have a band called the Midnight Rebels, and with Toni on guitar, me on drums and Rose singing with whatever pitch seemed fit for the song we were covering, we were actually quite decent. Of course there's gotta be some people who absolutely hate you to hell on earth and scream "Fuck off!" when you're on stage, but it's all in the joys of being a touring band. To be honest the only reason I joined was cos I was trying to get my mind off stuff and I was sat in a bar and saw these two people giving it their best shot at a cover of "I Love Rock'n'Roll" by Joan Jett without a drummer and I felt sorry for them. They were only getting small change and the crowd was rapidly decreasing. Of course, I had never told Edward about my musical ability. He would just make me do crappy classical music along to his , I got up, went over to them and introduced myself.

-Flashback-

"Hey, my name's Bella, and it seems like you're in need of a drummer" I said to the singer. She looked about 19.

"Hey yeah we probably do, you wanna give it a go?" She smiled at me when I nodded. I loved playing, even if it was only for a bit and for a band I didn't even know. I got up on stage and sat behind the kit, and started to play a steady drum beat in time to the song. At this point, the crowds started to turn back when they heard something new, and they started to watch us play. I kept the rhythm going and eventually the girl started to sing. It was one of those rough sounds that you would think would sound terrible, but actually worked and made me think Joan Jett was on the stage with us.

I saw him dancing there by the record machine

I knew he must have been about 17

The beat was going strong, playing my favourite song

And I could tell it wouldn't be long till he was with me

Yeah with me

And I could tell it wouldn't be long till he was with me

Yeah with me

Singin' I love rock and roll

So put another dime in the jukebox baby

I love rock and roll

So come on take some time and dance with me

We had only just finished the first verse and chorus, but already we were making quite a big crowd. They whooped and cheered us on and I could practically feel the adrenaline course through my veins. I laughed a warm bubbly laugh and kept the beat up, even louder this time.

He smiled so I got up and asked for his name

But that don't matter he said cos it's all the same

I said can I take ya home, where we can be alone

And next we're moving on and he was with me

Yeah me

And next we're moving on and he was with me

Yeah me

Singin' I love rock and roll

So put another dime in the jukebox baby

I love rock and roll

So come on take some time and dance with me

I said can I take ya home where we can be alone

Next we're moving on and he was with me

Yeah me

And we'll be moving on and singing that same old song

Yeah with me

Singin' I love rock and roll

So put another dime in the jukebox baby

I love rock and roll

So come on take some time and dance with me

As we finished the song, the whole place was cheering and screaming at us. I finished my drumming with a crash on the symbols, erupting more clapping. The singer turned back to me.

"That was so cool! Meet me at the bar in 10 mins I wanna talk to you about something." I nodded and smiled back at her, too out of breath to say anything. After the 10 minutes were up, I was sat back down at the bar grabbing a drink whilst the singer was ordering her own drink and some crisps for us. Once she had been served, she came and sat down next to me.

"So, you're name's Bella, right?" She asked.

"Yeah" I replied once I had swallowed my drink.

"Cool, my name's Rose, and the lad who plays guitar, his name is Toni. You're a sick drummer, where did you learn?" She asked me.

"Well, I don't know really. My mum said that I was always hitting things and making music when I was little, so I guess it just came from that. I took lessons for about a year before mum realised that I was doing much better on my own so she stopped paying for it and her and my dad got me my first kit when I was 9." I replied, lost in memories. My kit was still at Renee's house, of course it had upgraded since I was 9.

"Awesome, I've always been a singer, and I started doing shows when I was young, like 13. I met Toni at a band camp when I was 17 , and we made a band. We've been looking for a drummer for 2 years, but I think we just found what we've been looking for." She smiled at me. I must have looked like an idiot with my wide eyes and open mouth, but I was actually shocked. When I performed at school, the teachers just thought I couldn't get the timing right and they thought my clumsiness would just make me hit the wrong drums. But my clumsy side disappeared when I played, and I could hit with the right time and speed so it created the perfect sound. Not to brag, but I was pretty sick.

"So, is that a yes?" Rose looked at me for a second like I was crazy.

"OMG! Yes! I've always wanted to be in a band but everyone thinks I can't play properly. Thanks so much!" She just smiled at me. She yelled for Toni to get his ass over here and have a drink with us. Long story short, we all couldn't walk straight afterwards.

- Flashback end-

"Bella! C'mon we've got to get ready we're on in an hour!" Rose yelled at me. She was practically my best friend, along with Toni, of course. I have been in the band for 3 years now, and it's my 21st birthday in a couple of weeks. Rose is a year older than me, and Toni is the same age as me, but a few months older. We all had a super tight bond and when I introduced Jake to them they were all really happy that

"Alright I'll be there in a sec!" I yelled back. I was just texting Jake, because he promised that he would be at the show tonight. We hadn't seen each other in a couple of months, cos I had been touring near Denver, Colorado,and Jake stayed behind to look after Billy. Usually Jake came with me on tour, a bit of moral support, and we had got so much closer since Dickward had left, as Jacob calls him. I walked down to where Rose and Toni were grabbing some pizza before we went on, and of course they were already dressed up.

"Girl, what the fuck have you been doing for the past hour?! I ain't gonna let you have any pizza till you do your make up." I laughed at her. Rose was a lot like Alice in a fashion sense, except she was actually considerate when it came to my clothing. I did some dark smokey eye shadow and put on some blood red lipstick, and added a bit of mascara for good measure. I shrugged on my black leather jacket with gold studs and zips, and then grabbed a pizza slice out of the box and carefully bit into it so I didn't smudge my makeup. The director person came into backstage and called us up, so we could get ready. The three of us went out and onto the stage, where we started setting up. A small crowd was already forming, but I couldn't see Jake yet. We were all ready and Rose stepped up to the mic.

"Hey Everyone, we're the Midnight Rebels, and we've got some music for ya!" With that, Toni strummed his first chord and we were off. I kept on time and occasionally added in the extra smash to the symbols to liven it up a bit. The crowd was going wild with cheers and clapping, and even some singing along if they knew the song. I looked over the crowd and finally spotted Jake right in the middle shouting and cheering looking right at me. I twirled my drum stick and smiled at him. But as I looked across the crowd, a section of people stood out to me. I kept looking as I had a talent that I didn't have to keep my eyes down so I could look around. They were all exceptionally beautiful, and all wore designer clothing that would make anyone stand out in a crowd. I was sure I had seen them before, but as I got to the chorus of the song, it suddenly hit me. Oh shit.

And as if like magic, Edward turned his face towards me, and the same look of shock covered his face as it did mine.

Okay! First chapter done. Hopefully I'll get some good reviews and I will try get the next chapter up soon if people are interested. But for now, see ya!
