This day, February 21st, marks my FB group's 8th year, and so to celebrate it, I've decided to start posting this new little drabble of mine!
Title: Through Your Eyes
Summary: Freaky Friday with a Twilight Twist. New Moon AU.
As much as Bella and Edward love each other, they can't possibly understand what the other's life is Bella's 18th birthday, instead of a paper cut, a switch is about to make Forks even weirder.
How will Bella cope with suddenly being a 104-year-old mind-reading vampire in love with her singer? And how will Edward cope with being a human in love with a vampire?

Edward decided to change the subject. "So, if you won't let me get you the Audi, isn't there anything that you'd like for your birthday?"
The words left Bella in a whisper. "You know what I want."
A deep frown carved creases into his marble forehead. He obviously wished he'd stuck to the subject of Rosalie.
It felt like they'd had that argument a lot that day.
"Not tonight, Bella. Please."
She fought the urge to pull the truck over, but she allowed her thoughts to flow unhindered from her mouth. "Fine. Then which night?"
Edward blinked. He hadn't expected her to counter his argument. "I didn't—"
"You didn't mean 'not tonight' you meant 'not ever.'" Bella had only given Edward attitude about the subject a handful of times, and she hated arguing with him, but the combination of it being her birthday and that nobody had listened to her about celebrating it, she was fast approaching her limit of his constant dodging.
They pulled up to the house; bright lights shining from every window on the first two floors. A long line of Japanese lanterns hung from the porch eaves, reflecting a soft radiance on the huge cedars surrounding the house. Big bowls of pink roses lined the wide stairs up to the front doors.
Bella held in a moan and finally turned to look at Edward. "I will play nice tonight for your family's sake, but you have to accept that we need to have this conversation. You can't avoid it forever and hope it goes away."
If he was stunned by her brashness, he didn't show it as he went around to open her door and offered her his hand to help her out of the car. In fact, he showed little emotion as he pulled her up the stairs and opened the front door.
Welcome, folks, to this new story of mine and my Twilight interpretation of Freaky Friday as well as the "walk a mile in someone else's shoes" saying!
Updates will be posted as they're finished!
