I got bored so i wrote an AU from my poll, so yeah hear it is...



I walked down the hallway with Edward by my side.

I laughed when Lauren came out and stepped on his toe. Edward yelped and I immediately regretted making fun.

"Are you all right?" I asked him. My voice was full of worry even though all she did was step on his toe.

"I'm fine." He said weakly. His eyes were watery and he was about to cry. That was what I loved about Edward—he was sensitive.

Edward was not crying from the physical pain, but the emotional pain.

Edward was probably the biggest nerd in school. I wasn't a nerd. I thought I was, but I wasn't. I was just average. Guys asked me out about once a week. Not that much.

Mike Newton was probably my biggest admirer. He asked me out often and followed me around like a dog.

We walked home that day, because Edward's sisters and ditched us…again.

Edward had two sisters. Their names were Rosalie and Alice. I wasn't very close with Alice, but I guess you could call us friends. Rosalie, well, didn't really like me. The more appropriate phrase would be—She hopes I die a painful death soon and never hang out with her brother or sister again. That's more like it.

When I got to my house we played football as we always did after school.

Edward was amazing at football. He beat me every time and I was pretty good my self.

"You should try out." I told him after we were done playing and sweating threw our clothes.

Edward shrugged but before he had time to answer I heard a booming voice coming from inside our house, "Bella!" It was Emmet.

Emmet was my big brother. He was captain of the basketball team and was on the baseball team also.

Emmet was really popular and got all the ladies. Yet, he never abandoned me. Every day at lunch he would ask if I wanted to sit with him and his posse. I would accept often and decline often and Emmet always asked if Edward wanted to sit down to .

"Got to go." I said as I grabbed my backpack.

Edward nodded and started to walk away.

I ran into the house to see what Emmet wanted.

"What is it?" I asked curiously.

"I asked Rosalie out today and she said yes!" He screamed in the girlish of voices.

I sighed and pretended to be happy. I was happy for him though. I just wasn't happy about this.

Emmet had had a crush on Rosalie for years. She never gave him the time of day, until this year.

Emmet was best friends with Jasper and he seemed to like him, and until now, I thought Emmet had good taste in people. I was proven wrong. He had asked out Rosalie. She was most popular girl in school, and definitely the meanest.

Emmet seemed to see my unhappy expression and reached out and put my face in his hands and said, "I know how you fell about her Bells, but she really is great when you get to know her."

"Well Emmet which side of her have you gotten to know? Her personality or her butt." I snapped.

Emmet stepped back with a hurt expression on his face and I realized what I had just done.

"Emmet…I…" I tried to think of some way to apologize but nothing came and before I had a chance to come up with anything Emmet stormed upstairs and I heard his bedroom door slam.

"Shot!" I yelled and kicked the wall closest to me.

Tears started to roll down my cheeks and soon I was sobbing.

Charlie was out of town and so it was just me alone, which I was thankful for.

I sobbed for hours when I felt a hand on my shoulder. I looked up to see Emmet there, with a small smile on his face. His face was tear stained also.

I smiled back at him and he took me in a bear hug, as always. "I am so sorry." I sobbed into his chest.

"It's okay little sis." He voice was light and he was back to his normal self.

"I am going to bed." I told him. He nodded and I ran up the stairs and into my bedroom.

I plopped down on the bed and I was asleep before my head even hit the pillow.

EPOV (Edward)

I walked home deep in thought and almost got hit by a car.

It was actually Jasper—Bella's brother—who almost hit me.

Bella's brother Jasper was quiet and barely ever said anything. I had no idea if I liked him or not, because I had never talked to him.

I remembered what Bella told me. To try out for the football team and I was seriously considering it.

I walked the house and there stood Alice. I glared at her and she looked down at her shoes then back at me with pleading eyes.

"I tried to stop her." She told me. I just nodded and stormed upstairs to my room. I lied down for hours, never closing my eyes.

I decided just before I went into a deep sleep that I was going to try out for football.


I drove to school with Emmet and Jasper. They were quiet the whole way. Today was football tryouts and Jasper had to concentrate.

Jasper was trying out, and to tell you the truth, I had never seen him play.

I had no idea if he was good or horrible.

Edward wasn't at the spot where we always met for first period and I was a little worried, until during my walk to English Edward ran up, panting like a dog.

I looked away from him. I had quite a temper and even the littlest thing set it off.

But, always met there, ever since the second day of freshman year. I don't know how but we always ended up in the same first period class.

"I am so sorry." He pleaded for an apology. "Please forgive me." He was on his knees now with his hand raised in the air with his palms pressed together as if to pray.

When I turned and saw this I couldn't help but laugh. I sighed and nodded my head.

He smiled and got up and we headed to English.


On our way to lunch next to me Edward suddenly stopped in the empty hallway.

"Bella," He turned to me and I turned to him. "I have to tell you something."

I waited for him to say whatever he was going to say and after a couple minutes he said, "Bella, after school I am trying out for the football team. "

I gasped and then smiled, "That's great." I told him truthfully.

I turned and started walking again and he did the same.


The next day I was worried about if Edward made the team.

He wasn't at out meeting place and this time he never came to first period at all.

I sat next to Lauren that day and she was saying to Jessica, "I never noticed how hot Edward was."

I was confused. There was no way on earth she was talking about Edward Cullen—my Edward.

"What do you mean?" I asked her.

"Duh!" She scoffed, "You haven't heard?"

I shook my head.

"Edward is now the quarterback of the football team. I though you were his best friend. Shouldn't you know?" She pursed her lips and turned back to Jessica.


Edward didn't walk with me to my classes like he had done every other day and I was starting to get worried when I saw him at lunch.

He was sitting at the jock table with Emmet and Jasper. Jasper made the team also and was apparently very good.

I ran over to the table and tapped Edward on the shoulder, but when he turned around I didn't see Edward Cullen at all, but a whole new person.

"What do you want nerd?" Edward scoffed. Everyone laughed except Alice and my two brothers.

I was shocked and pain crossed my expression and tears started falling down my checks. For a moment I thought I saw regret in Edward's eyes, but it was gone in a flash. It was probably an allusion anyway. You mind can play tricks on you sometimes and show you what you want to see.

I ran out of the lunchroom and sobbed on a bench, skipping 5th period.

I remembered Lauren's words: I thought you were his best friend.

So did I.
