Here it is! A collaboration LilyAlice and I have came up with! Right now it's undecided where what she writes will be posted, but if you want to find out what happens next in Edward's or Bella's POV, here is the place to be. So I hope you enjoy it, and reveiw! Tell us waht you think, especailly since I didn't think I did a quite so hot job at Edward's POV.
Disclaimer: We do not own the Twilight characters, but we do own the ideas for the crazy things we are going to put them through.
"Edward Anthony Mason Cullen, hurry up before you make us late for the first day of school!" I heard Alice yelling, banging on my door rather loudly with what seemed to be most of her might. I was sure my poor door wasn't going to be able to take much more of her beating, so I rolled over on my bed and almost resisted the urge to let out a moan. It wasn't like I had been sleeping, but I was only halfway though my favorite classical CD.
"If you don't stop, you're going to be buying me a new door," I said, getting up off the bed, and hitting the off button on my giant stereo system.
"Oh, shopping!" I heard Alice say before scurrying on down the hall to aggravate some other poor victim.
At least she was looking forward to our first day of school this year. I didn't quite understand why. It wasn't like she—or any of the rest of us for that matter—were really going to learn anything at this school. I had already done my junior year at high school more times that I could count, and she was the same. I would only get to go through the year as the same old smart boy who kept to himself on all occasions, and wanted no human contact. The year would be like all the others. It wasn't like the whole entirecourse of the rest of my being was about to be changed by one simple day at school.
"Edward, get your tail downstairs! Carlisle has to give his whole 'don't do anything stupid to the humans speech'," Emmett thought, racing past my room. That was just like him to be too lazy to actually say something when he could just think it. It was his fault we had to hear the same speech year after year anyway. He had decided that it would be fun to scare some girl who was running around telling everyone she was a vampire whenshe really wasn't. Let's just say it all went downhill from there.
I quickly changed and headed out the door, being careful of my door behind me. Yeah, it definitely wasn't going to take many more of Alice's beatings… When I got downstairs, Carlisle was already finishing with his never changing speech.
"And remember, do not, under any circumstances, no matter now mad you get, pick up a desk and throw it," he finished. Emmett chuckled at this comment, while Rosalie glared at him. That had been him too. As a matter of fact, he was the cause of almost everything Carlisle always mentioned in his speech.
"Lucky. You got to miss it," Emmett said, looking at me.
"Well, if it wasn't for you, we wouldn't get the same speech every year," I said, heading towards our giant garage. We soon filed into our cars. Jasper and Alice sat in the backseat of my Volvo while Emmett and Rosalie rode in his jeep. We were at the school in mere minutes due to our fast driving.
"So how are you going to make life interesting this year without breaking one of Carlisle new rules?" Rosalie asked Emmett as we all piled out of the two cars.
"I think…. I think…. I think I'll make a bet with Edward!" he answered after a moment's hesitation.
"What do you mean by that?" I asked, giving him an inquisitive look.
"Exactly what I said. I bet you won't join the school activity of my choice," Emmett said. I was certainly up to the challenge. Anything to make this year a little more interesting. Little did I know this challenge was going to cause a more pain than I first realized.
"Try me," I said, daring my adoptive brother to go on.
"You have to try out for the first production the school's drama club puts on! And then make the cast!" Emmett said matter of factly.
"Fine, bet accepted, but if I win, you have to stop sending me disguising pictures and thoughts of Rosalie on purpose for the rest of the school year," I said. It sounded like a piece of cake anyway. I had always had an interest in the theater, and this bet could only be a learning experience.
"And if you don't make it, I get to do it as much and as often as I want for the rest of the school year. Deal?" Emmett asked, extending his hand toward me.
"Deal," I answered, shaking his hand. Just then, the first bell rang to motion us to our homeroom classes.
The beginning of the day went by at a boring, slow pace as usual. Nothing out of the ordinary happened, and I could tell that this was just going to be a regular, uninteresting year at school. Maybe Emmett's play would prove to be a little bit of an entertainment bringer, but probably not. I would just have to wait and see.
I picked up my books off the floor beside me, and left for the lunchroom as the bell rang to dismiss us for lunch. I went through the awkward formality of getting my food and drink, and then went to join my adoptive family at our usual table at the back corner of the large lunchroom.
When I got there, everyone was already seated but Emmett. We all sat there in silence, starring about different points and places on the lunchroom wall. We didn't eat, yet neither did we talk to each other. This was how we went through lunch every day until Emmett got there. Some days, even then he had trouble getting us to communicate with each other.
"Hey guys! Guess what Edward! I found out what you're gonna have to be in," Emmett said, sitting down next to Rosalie.
I was about to respond, when suddenly, something hit me. It was the smell of human blood… Not the usual smell, but a stronger, sweeter, most unbearable smell. I quickly scanned the room, searching for the source of this blood. I had to have them… I had to have them quickly, whoever they were.
It took me mere seconds to locate the source. She was skinny, almost scrawny looking, with ivory skin. She wouldn't be that big of a challenge. I felt as my eyes turned black from the blood lust away from their normal, ochre color. I would drink her blood if it was the last thing I did.
"Edward! Hey, Earth to Edward!" I heard Emmett said, throwing an apple against my head, breaking me out of my train of thought.
"Right, sorry," I said, taking my eyes off her as she sat down. She still hadn't noticed me, which would only make my job easier. As soon as I could get Emmett to move, I would pounce on her in front of the whole lunchroom. That would just leave a cafeteria full of people for me to get rid of afterwards…. Too bad for them.…
So what did you think? Reveiw, and Bella's POV on this first chapter should be up soon under the title "Real Life Romeo and Juliet." It will either be posted under my screenname or LilyAlice, so be on the look out on both!
And if anyone is wondering, I was staying in character with Edward here at the end when Edward entered the lunchroom. I would highly recommend for anyone who hasn't to go read the first chapter of Midnight Sun on Stephenie Meyer's website.
