Edward Cullen Discovers the Joys of English high school, but not just any high school- My high school (Evil fan girl laugh)
All Music used in the story can be listened to here:
She lay only a meter from me her knees curled against her chest. Her eyes were shut peacefully her black eyelashes contrasting against her pale skin. Her face was blotchy from crying and yet she was still the most beautiful creature I had ever seen.
She gripped in one hand a small black heart shaped stone she held it against her heart beating strong and warm in her chest. She was in my arms in an instant but not so that she would wake up. I carried her bridal style through the wreckage and she uttered four words in her sleep.
"Edward...I love you"
Only for our words – but they were the only ones in the world that had ever meant anything
"I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye
I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe that your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires"
It was strange, very strange... that this miss-match of temporary building and old crumbling ones could be in fact called a school. Let not mention the foul brook running through the middle of it in which I had already seen a rat the size of a cat.
Then there was this horrible uniform with the bottle green blazer, green, magenta and grey horizontally stripped tie, grey v-neck jumper, grey trousers and finally the white shirt. I felt like a complete idiot as did my siblings Rose's mind was full of complaints over the horrible attire.
We walked into the school awkwardly and scanned the parking lot which was also the football pitch. The concrete was full of holes, puddles and cracks and on this cold day most of the student population was tripping and falling on the ice that covered it.
I couldn't ignore the 'voices' in my head and the looks the girls were giving me. Obviously this place hadn't seen anything like us before. The student body was very varied with kids of every nationality and personality. One in particular caught my eye; a girl wearing a large grey coat and a bright pink bag as well as a bright pink head band that kept her dark blond hair out of the way. I could not see her face as she was walking with her back to me.
The Cullen family spilt up when we crossed the bridge to the side of the brook which appeared to be the art, science, P.E and technology departments. Some of us went to tech some of us to art and science. I had found myself following the Pink Girl to my form room.
She entered the science department to small corridor which had four rooms coming of it. I heard her sigh. Now that I was close I tried to read her mind but I got nothing, zero, and zip. She still had her back to me as she walked to the end of the small corridor where there was located a radiator and dropped her heavy bag to the floor. She rolled her shoulder blades now that they were free of their burden. She unzipped the large coat and placed in on top of the radiator then removed her grey gloves and places her delicatehands on the radiator.
Then finally she turned staring at the floor taking in the warmth of the radiator. Then her green /blue eyes shot up as if she could hear me breathing from where she was standing. Her eyes were immediately drawn to me. She looked at me shocked her large eyes becoming wider.
She was not pretty in the way you expect instead she had a different kind of beauty. Large eyes rimmed with long black lashes. Her short dark blonde hair that came just past her chin. Her rosy cheeks from the cold and ruby red lips. Her nose was not straight she had one small bump on it as if it had been broken. Her skin was almost as pale as mine. I could say nothing of her figure as the large blazer covered her leaving her looking like a stick. Her heart sang in her chest I wondered if she was frightened of me already.
We stood staring at each other completely alone in the small corridor I wondered who would be the first to release the tension. Then a loud cackling erupted from behind me and her eyes moved to the cackling person. I saw it the messages been sent through the girls eyes to the person behind and yet still there was silence I could not read this persons mind either.
"Rae?" questioned the voice behind me no longer laughing.
'Rae' motioned her eyes towards me in what I guess was supposed to be a subtle movement. Then I saw the other girl tall ,brunette, blue eyes wide as they looked at me. Are all the teenage girls in this school deranged? Our form tutor arrived a tall man with a large build and a shaved head. He was sarcastic but good at heart. The rest of form arrived most of them wondering about my presence and why three – yes three now another reddish brunette had arrived with an Asian girl who seemed to be unaffected by my presence – were overly excited.
They didn't talk as if they knew I would hear them if they did. Rae seemed to have good hearing herself. The first brunette was called Lou, the second Scarlet; the Asian girl was referred to as Kaira . I found those blue/green eye on me calculating and curious. Then she looked at the other girls and nodded.
She jumped of the stool and away from the lab table. I heard the tapping of her small heals as she crossed the room to stand about a half a metre away from me.
"My name is Rae Whitewings" she said holding out her hand to me.
Her scent was amazing but strangely didn't create any thirst in me, she smelt like ginger, sandalwood, and something else.
"Edward Cullen" I said taking her hand.
She did not flinch at my touch but instead her heart raced and a jolt of electricity ran between us. A smile spread across her face her eyes darted behind me.
Edward... turns out we're in here together thought Jasper behind me I let go of Rae's hand.
The girl appears to be tremendously happy but also full of self loathing Jasper added.
I like her thought Alice skipping past us toward the girls friends. Jasper hung back a little before following her.
"Jasper and Alice" Rae muttered under her breath.
"Pardon?" how could she know their names already.
"Nothing" she said annoyed then she turned away from me and back to her friends.
"To the toilets" she declared.
And off they went after asking the form tutor who rolled his eyes like he was asked the same question every morning. At least I had found some form of amusement in the school these 'Silent' girls.
