Ok, well, I'm just seeing if anyone will like this. It was just something that kept bugging me and I had to write it. So read on!
Love is my curse.
Summary: Bella and Edward have been best friends since they were born; as their parents were good friends, so were their children. Now in their junior year of high school, Edward and Bella are still good friends, but Bella is the popular girl that all the guys want, and Edward well Edward isn't very popular himself, but still the most good looking guy in the school, but he just doesn't flaunt himself, so in result… no one notices. They may still be friends, but have slowly grown apart since 8th grade. Edward loves Bella, but she only sees him as a friend. How will these two get together? Will they ever be together?
Chapter 1 meeting my loves first love
How come so many say when you love someone they always love you back, when in reality, you can love someone without them knowing, or them loving you back? Well, I love someone, and she doesn't love me back. I know this because, unlike all the summers before freshman year, we would see each other every day, or at least every week or 2. This past summer, I would only see her every other month when she didn't have her boyfriend to go out with, and call me over for a "play date," is what she calls it.
Who is it that I love so much you ask? The one and only Isabella Marie Swan, aka Bella, the most popular, drop dead gorgeous girl in Scottsdale, Arizona. But to me, she's the most beautiful girl in the history of beautiful girls, and forever will be, even after she dies – hopefully of old age and not some tragic reason.
Today was the first day of junior year in high school, and I would finally be able to see Bella again. The last time I've spoken to her was two weeks ago when we were telling each other our schedules when we got them. The last time I've seen her, was two month ago, when her boyfriend was out of state for a few days and she grew bored and came to me.
At this moment I had arrived at the school. I was the first one there in anticipation of seeing Bella after so long; after too long.
I stayed in the car and put on some music, waiting for the lot to fill. Suddenly I heard a rapping on my window. I jumped slightly, not realizing that the parking lot had filled. I looked over to the window and found an angry Rosalie and Jasper, and a hysterical Emmett.
Rosalie and Jasper are my siblings (who I forgot to drive to school, which was probably the reason they were angry….) and Emmett is one of my best friends, and Rosalie's boyfriend. Jasper and Rosalie are twins, but skipped a grade, so they're in their junior year too. They're also adopted, just like I was. But they got to keep their last name the same, so only if you knew us, would you know we lived together.
I quickly rolled down the window. "Yes?" I asked innocently. Emmett laughed harder, and Jasper and Rosalie both glared at him. Mostly Rosalie, though.
"You idiot! How can you forget us?! We had to call mom because your phone was off when we tried to call you! You know our car is broken!" Rosalie yelled at me. I got out of the car quickly.
"Well it's not my fault that you decided to disobey our parents and stay out past 11:00 and crash the car that you and Jasper both use because you were trying to put your make up back on so that no one would notice you were at Emmett's making out." I shot back at her. At this point Emmett stopped laughing, and Rosalie looked down.
"You did what?" Jasper asked her, visibly much more angry then before.
"Well, I kind of - I just - well you see…." By then I left them to their bickering, Emmett trailing behind me, not wanting to be involved with that conversation either.
"Hey dude, where's Bella? You two usually come to school together, don't you?" Emmett asked catching up to me.
"We used to, until she got a boyfriend over the break. He moved here over the summer. He lives right across from Bella's house. I have no idea where she is. I've barely spoken to her at all this summer." I said through gritted teeth. Emmett knows how I feel for Bella, and he always supported me about it 100 percent.
"Aw, man, I'm sorry. If it's any consolation, I always thought you two were meant for each other!" He said, trying to cheer me up.
"Yeah, thanks Emmett." I replied glumly. I really didn't want to talk about it.
"So what's his name? Have you ever met the guy?" He pried on, oblivious to my neglect to the subject.
"Cloud Retts. I've never seen him in my life, I've only heard about him because whenever I saw Bella, he was all she would talk about. I know everything about him from his shoe size to his favorite brand of chocolate now!"
"Hey look! There's Bella!" Emmett said, pointing to a car that Bella stood by. She was wearing a jean mini skirt and a black spaghetti strap with a purple elf design on it. Only a second after I looked a guy came out of the car. He had longish black hair and tan skin, well tan compared to Bella at least. The car was a Black Lamborghini Murcielago. (pic. in pro.)
He walked over to Bella, wrapped his arms around her and putting his hands in her back pockets, while she locked her arms around his neck and he gave her a long sweet kiss. Watching this, my heart sank deep and I could feel my face lose color. How I wished to be in his place and be the one giving Bella that long sweet kiss that she seemed to enjoy so much.
"Man, I am so sorry! That has got to sting!" Emmett apologized yet again for no reason.
"Don't worry about it; it's not your fault." I said looking down.
When they pulled apart he spoke quickly to her and went to the trunk. While he did that Emmett had decided to get Bella's attention, along with everyone else's because of his booming voice. "Bella! Hey, Bella, over here!" He yelled out, waving both his arms over his head.
She looked over our way and her eyes lit up, which seemed impossible because of how bright they were already. Her smile that looked like it couldn't get any bigger grew wider.
I shot Emmett a glare, and walked over to Bella and her boyfriend.
"Hey Edward, Emmett! I've missed you guys!" She waved us over to her.
When we reached her, she engulfed us both in a long hug. "You can't believe how much I've missed you both! It was unbearable! Well, at least until Cloud came; after that, everything passed by in a blissful blur." A "blissful blur?" Time never passed by in a "blissful blur" when we hung out together…and this was the longest summer of my life. "Edward, when was the last time I met up with you? A week ago, two, three, a month?"
I faked a cough. "Two month; actually…."
She gasped, "Edward, I am so sorry! It's just, I've been so caught up, that – I don't know, I'm just sorry! But I IMed you a few weeks ago right? We were exchanging schedules. Or was that with Cloud…?" That last comment she said was more to herself then to me, but I still answered it.
"It was probably me, you would have gone through that with Cloud in person, and I'm sure." I said without much feeling. She didn't notice my gloom though.
"Oh, right, of course!" She smiled.
"Hey Bells, who are they?" Cloud asked walking up to us with a skateboard in his hand.
"Oh, well this is my friend Edward, and that's my other friend Emmett!" She introduced us. We nodded our heads with no enthusiasm at all to meet him. I noticed when she said "friend" instead of "bff" towards me like she always says when she introduces me to someone new. Always. "Guys, this is Cloud, my boyfriend."
"Hey, what's up Edward? I've heard so much about you, man." Not as much as I heard about you I'm sure.
"Same here, nice to finally meet the famous Cloud Retts," I gave him a small smile.
"Bella!" I heard Alice's high pitched voice come from behind us.
Alice. She's Bella's best friend and Jasper's girlfriend. She's a freshman.
"Hey Bella!" She said excitedly as she reached us. She gasped when she saw Cloud. "Oh! My! God! Is that him?!" She whispered in her ear. I was close enough to hear what she said, and so was Cloud. He smiled shyly and is face heated up a bit.
"Hi, I'm Cloud. You must be Alice," He took out his hand to shake it, but Alice went in and hugged him instead, completely ignoring his hand. Typical Alice.
"Finally Bella has a boyfriend! I mean, I always thought her first boyfriend was going to be E-," Just then the bell rang, drowning the last thing she said.
"The bell, we better go. See you later guys!" And with that, Bella rushed off hand in hand with her boyfriend.
