Hello everyone! Welcome to my new story! Now, just as a disclaimer, I do not own twilight or any of the original Twilight characters. Now, go ahead and read! I hope you enjoy it and make sure to leave a review!

"Alice!" I whined to one of my best friends. "Are you kidding me? You told me you could come!" I paced my room, yelling into my phone.

The annoying but completely lovable pixie let out a sigh. "I know, and I'm sorry." She truly did sound sorry but I couldn't help but groan.

I had a plan, and this plan was not going as planned. A little over a month ago, I had discovered that a specific band was coming to Edmonton. A band that I had listened to during all of my years up until now. Foreigner. Yes, Foreigner was coming to Edmonton, Alberta. The city I had moved to right after I graduated.

You might be thinking, how old are you? Fourty? No, I am the ripe age of eighteen. Yes, eighteen. I moved here just five months ago to attend the U of A for English. Boring, right? Yeah, well I want to be an author and my writing is trash, so . . .

Within the first week of classes, I had run into my, now, two best friends, Rosalie and Alice. Rosalie and Alice both have classes together, studying fashion, so they had already met and decided to go out for some coffee on campus. On that little coffee expedition, they ran into me. So now, here we are, three best friends five months into our first year of University.

Okay, back to my plan that isn't going as planned. I immediately called up Alice and Rosalie and told them the news. Alice replied with a very loud and high pitched "yes" and Rosalie frowned.

"When is it?" She had asked me with a gloomy tone. I furrowed my brows and tilted my head to the side, perplexed as to why she was reacting this way. She had mentioned before that she liked this particular band as well when we were listening to one of their CDs in the car.

"January tenth, why?"

She let out a sigh, "I'm going to visit my family. See, they live so far away and I never really get to see them anymore so when I go back their for the holiday's, I plan on staying right up until school starts again, which is the thirteenth." She played around with her hands and bit her lip slightly. "I'm so sorry."

I walked up to her and placed a hand on her shoulder. "It's fine. Alice and I will buy you a shirt or something." She pulled me into a tight hug and whispered a thank you.

But now, here I am, nearly five months later, on the phone with Alice after she told me that couldn't make it to the concert because she is feeling under the weather.

"What if you . . ." She paused.

"What if I . . .?" I pressed.

"What if you just take the extra ticket, go walk around town before the concert, and maybe, just maybe, you'll run into someone to invite?" She said it all quite fast and took a deep breath afterwards, knowing how I would react to that statement, she prepared herself for my wrath.

"That's ridiculous, Alice." My voice went up an octave. "You can't honestly believe that I would try something like that."

"Bella, you haven't gone on a date since Mike." Alice replied, sounding slightly annoyed.

I threw the hand that was not holding the phone in the air. "How do you know? I didn't even meet you till, like, two months after our break up."

She let out yet another sigh. "Would you really go on a date so soon after a break up? No. So that is how I know. Now, Bella, you need to get yourself out there! You're eighteen!"

"But Alice-" She cut me off, how rude.

"No buts!" And the line went dead. She hung up. I groaned and tossed my phone onto my bed. Great, now I had to go to a concert alone and I wasted money on an extra ticket. And such short notice, with the concert being tonight.

I sat on my couch for a long moment, thinking about what Alice had said. Maybe I should. Maybe I should put myself out there more. No, I don't need to. I'm only eighteen and I don't need a boyfriend right now. It's not like I haven't had one before so I can check that off my bucket list.

Mike and I began dating the beginning of the second semester of our senior year in highschool and broke up at the end of the school year due to some complicated matters. Well, not complicated, it is quite straightforward. But, whatever.

Since then, I haven't gone out on any dates. You might be thinking, why would you turn guys down? Well, I haven't actually been asked out since our break up and I have just been so busy with school that I couldn't even find the time to go out to a bar. I'm in Canada. I can drink at eighteen. Calm down.

After a few more minutes of contemplation, I made my decision. I would go out for something to eat before the concert, nothing more! Then I would go to the concert and if I didn't meet anyone before then, then oh well. Concerts can be fun on your own, right?

"Thank you." I grabbed the to go cup full of coffee, slightly diluted with cream, and walked out of the coffee shop, making my way to the park down the street. Benches lined the large patch of grass as well as some trees. It wasn't too cold out that day, it was actually quite nice for the winter.

It was around zero degrees celcius with about an inch of snow covering the ground. The sun peeked through the clouds slightly so with any luck, the snow would be gone by the end of the day. Because of the weather, I dressed in a long sleeved shirt with a thick wool sweater and a toque with some normal dark blue jeans and plain black boots. I also let my mid length dark brown hair flow. I didn't bother to put it back because one, I was wearing a toque, and two, it helped keep my ears and neck warm.

I sat down on a bench and took a sip of the deliciously warm coffee. To get into the mood for the concert, I decided to put in my earbuds and listen to some of Foreigner's music. I crossed my legs and hit play on my phone. The song "Cold As Ice" began to play and I couldn't help but smile at the irony of the song title. Usually every other day was cold as ice but today was quite the opposite.

You're as cold as ice

You're willing to sacrifice our love

You never take advice

Someday you'll pay the price, I know

I moved the leg that was stacked on top of the other back and forth to the beat of the music and took another sip of my coffee.

I've seen it before

It happens all the time

You're closing the door

You leave the world behind

A woman, out for a jog, was walking her large dog. An elderly couple held hands as they walked in the opposite direction. When they were close to colliding, the woman moved out of the way, kindly. They nodded to each other in hello and continued their separate ways.

You're digging for gold

Yet throwing away

A fortune in feelings

But someday you'll pay

You're as cold as ice

You're willing to sacrifice our love

You want paradise

But someday, you'll pay the price, I know

I've seen it before

It happens all the time

You're closing the door

You leave the world behind

You're digging for gold

Yet throwing away

A fortune in feelings

But someday you'll pay

A slight breeze arrived and made a chill run down my spine, making me take a gulp of coffee. I let my eyes wander, taking in the things that were happening around me. I guess you could say I was people watching but that sounds a little creepy, I was more so just gazing.

Cold

As

Ice

And that's when I saw him.

You know that you are

Cold

As

Ice

His bronze hair peeked out through the bottom of his toque, it was just long enough that you could see the edges of it.

As cold as ice to me

Cold

As

Ice

He had the most beautiful face I had ever seen. He was tall too, much taller than me. At least six feet tall compared to myself which is just over five foot four. His skin was quite pale, very similar to mine. It seemed to glow in the sunlight. He wore a long dark grey coat that was buttoned all the way to the top, his hinds shoved into his pockets.

You're as cold as ice

Cold as ice, I know

Yes I know

He wasn't alone. He walked with two other men. Both around the same height. One looked quite a lot like him but he wore no toque so I could see his full head of blonde hair that was in the form of loose curls. The other had a band wrapped around his head to cover his ears. He was different from the other two yet looked much the same face wise. He was much larger, a lot more muscular while the other two seemed tones but were more lanky, and his hair was almost black with very small ringlets. It was cut very short though.

You're as cold as ice

Cold as ice, I know

Oh yes I know

I couldn't take my eyes off of them, well, him. They were all very attractive but there was something about the bronze haired boy that caught my attention and held it.

You're as cold as ice

Cold as ice, I know

Oh yes I know

The song came to a close as soon as they disappeared behind the trees. I sat just far away enough from the sidewalk that I couldn't see fully down the street, so I was no longer able to see them.

It's probably better off that way. There is now way someone so handsome, so gorgeous, would want to go out with me. So there I was, alone in the park, with no way of contacting that boy to even get to know his name.

I closed my eyes as the next song began. "Hot Blooded". That's a good one.
