Once we had moved into the new house, the feel of the room and the air felt cozy, as if we had lived in the house for all our lives. The room that Edward and I had occupied had been perfect for us, the bed, which was really unnecessary for us, was king sized, with a midnight blue comforter that puffed out from the mattress, making the bed bubble-like.
"Bella," Edward purred into my ear, as I was looking up at the ceiling, laying down in the bed. The mattress was Posturpedic, so it formed into a mold for my body.
"Yes?" I asked, looking over at him. The light from the window lit up the room. It was cloudy today, which brought us all luck. It was interesting, though, since it was the beginning of September.
"There is no need to be nervous." He said, rubbing his thumb over the bump on my nose.
"Edward, it's college. How can you not be nervous?"
"Well, you know, I've been there a few times," he smirked.
"Well, the first time usually really makes a person nervous." I said, getting underneath the covers. I glanced at clock on my cell phone: 5:37 A.M.
"Bella, darling, please. I know you're nervous, but everything will be okay. Please trust me." Edward lifted the covered from my head and kissed me softly.
"I'm sorry," I lifted myself up, leaning against the headboard, " It's just…other than my nerves, I feel somewhat useless. I'm taking two online classes, Independent Writing and European History, and also Astronomy, at one of the science department buildings. Those are all very different classes, and nothing can help with my future career. How am I going to make any money?"
Edward sighed, taking my hands in his.
"Bella, Bella, Bella," His stare bore into mine, "Listen, you don't need to do anything to earn us money. We already have the ability to keep ourselves supported, and just because you don't have a certain field you aren't sure about, it doesn't mean that you are a failure. The differences in the choices of your classes will expand your knowledge, and who knows? Maybe you will find your calling during your time here in Dartmouth."
I said nothing else to him. I just leaned forward and placed my lips on his, thanking him silently. "Thank you."
I had to make sure that I was in the small auditorium in the Library at 7 o'clock in the morning to talk about the online classes, and get everyone enrolled and all our information corrected. Each class would include certain assignments that we would receive and we would have a time period to finish it in and send it to the teacher. I had Independent Writing first at 7 in the morning every day, followed by European History at nine thirty. Last class of the day would be Astronomy which would be at eleven, and then my day was over. I enjoyed having all my classes in the morning, so I could be free the afternoon and night.
I decided to get myself out of bed, god knows Alice and Rosalie already have things in mind for me to do to get ready before college.
"Bella! Get your butt into my room!" I heard the pixie-like vampire call. I sighed and walked down the hallway to the other side of the house, where her room was located.
"Hey guys, what's up?" I asked them as I jumped down on Alice's bed.
"Nothing, just go take a shower and put this outfit on." I looked over at her closet, and there hanging from the rack was a midnight blue blouse, along with a pair of dark wash jeans and Steve Madden boots.
"Mam, yes, Mam," I saluted to her, holding in my giggles, as I ran to the bathroom. After the quick, relaxing shower, I wrapped the fluffy white towel around my body, and got out of the tub, finding the clothes for today hanging from the hook on the door. I wipe my body, cleaning my eyes and watering my face, making sure no soap was left on me. I changed into the clothes, as I looked into the full-length mirror on the wall. The girl looking back at me was sophisticated, smart, beautiful. I twirled around, looking at my body once again.
"Bella, you look gorgeous! Now come on out, we have to finish your hair and make-up before we have to get to the school at six thirty!" Rose said through the door.
I went back out, Rosalie and Alice working on my hair and make-up. Everything was simple, though. My hair fell down in long banana curls, while they applied light eye shadow, liner, and lip gloss.
Edward was standing at the door, leaning against the frame. He was staring at me, a small smirk drawn on his face.
"What?" I asked, getting up and walking over to him. I wrapped my arms around his neck, our foreheads touching each others.
"Nothing, you just look extremely sexy." If I was human, I would have been blushing beet red at the moment.
"Thank you," I whispered, holding onto him dearly.
"Come on you two lovebirds, let's get going!" Emmett yelled, jumping down each flight of stairs in the main staircase.
"Emmett! Be careful!" Esme warned him, her head poking out of the kitchen.
"Sorry Esme…" He muttered like a little boy.
After the small dispute, all the Cullen kids went into the garage, Edward and I in the Volvo, While Emmett, Rose, Jasper, and Alice took Emmett's Jeep for today. We wanted our privacy, since it was my first time going to college. As we drove through the older-looking buildings in Massachusetts, I looked through the window, gaining all the sight-seeing and knowledge that I had missed, since I had never been to the East Coast.
"Why are you so quiet?" Edward asked after a few moments of silence.
I sighed once more, "Nothing, Edward. It's just…now that I think about it, I wish that Charlie and Renee were here to, you know, send me off on my first day. I know that the last time I saw them was at the wedding, but sometimes I really miss them."
"It's okay to miss them. Sometimes I wish that nothing had happened all those years ago; that my parents hadn't caught the stupid Spanish Influenza. But I also think that it should have happened, because I wouldn't be here with you."
I grabbed his hand in mine, my thumb running over his knuckles softly. His hand felt warm in mine, something that was different feeling since when I was human. Being a vampire wasn't all that bad.
We finally arrived at Dartmouth, my nerves kicking in. There were tons of boys and girls walking around the campus, tons of brick buildings and houses covering the land. There were some people who looked incredibly intelligent, and dressed the part too, while there was a clique of all blonde, skinny, cheerleaders. I wasn't sure where I would fit in, but as long as I had my family, I was all good.
"You ready, Bella?" Edward leaned over and kissed me reassuringly.
I nodded, getting out of the car, and grabbing my bag in the process. The six of us gathered into a circle in front of the courtyard, just to chat with each other for a bit before we all went our separate ways.
"I'm going to miss you," I told Edward, as we hugged each other before we had to leave.
"I'll miss you too. I love you so much, and just remember, you'll do great. We will meet right here in a few hours, okay love?" He looked into my eyes, kissing me once again.
"Okay, I love you too…" I waved to him as he walked towards the science department, since he was studying once again to earn another doctor's degree.
I slowly looked over all the buildings around the campus, hoping that I would find the library soon. I didn't want to be late on my first day of class. I absent mindedly walked over to the group of footballer boys and nudged the bulkiest one on the shoulder.
"Yeah?" He turned around, looking down at me. He was probably around Edward's height.
"Hello, um, can you point me to the library please?" I asked shyly. The guy smirked, looking amusingly at me.
"You're new here, right?" I nodded softly, "Well, why don't we exchange cell numbers. You can call me up, and we can get together for a good time."
One of his friends whistled very loudly, but the one I was talking to turned back and slapped him on the arm.
"Uh, no thank you. I have a boyfriend." I told him back, looking disgusted.
"Well, you know where to find a REAL man." The guy winked and turned back around. I was frustrated; he didn't even tell me where the library was! I looked at my watch once again: 6:39 A.M.
I had twenty one minutes to get to the library. I don't think that would have been a problem at all. As I walked down the area of the campus, I noticed that there were sororities everywhere. Everyone was different though, it was like everyone was split into different cliques.
I looked at each person individually, but I also noticed that everyone had technology - phones, ipods, PDAS, you name it. I felt very alienated at the moment, since there was no one with me.
After ten minutes, I finally found the library, happiness flowing through me. I walked through the two big doors, making my way to the small auditorium that was located on the other side of the building. Stacks after stacks of books were in this library, my mouth agape from the amazing sight.
"I should come here more often." I muttered to myself under my breath.
When I reached the auditorium, there were about 3 other girls sitting there, getting along with each other, sharing some laughs. I quietly walked over to the row in front of them, sliding into the seat.
"Hello! What's your name?" The girl with the brightly orange colored hair asked.
"Bella, and yours?"
"Well, I'm Samantha, and this over here is Rachel," She pointed to the blonde sitting next to her, "And this is Dinky."
"Very nice to meet you, all of you." I smiled, as I chatted with them a bit more about the campus. Over the remaining time there was to get to class, a few more students came through the doors, a total of about fifteen students in the entire class.
An older woman, probably in her late fifties, or early sixties, came into the auditorium wearing a normal dress and glasses, carrying a pile of papers.
"Hello everyone," She announced, "I am Mrs. Jones, and I am the coordinator of the Online English classes. I just called this small get together to learn about the students in the class, and to just go through a run-down, and the syllabus."
Over the course of the hour, we all introduced ourselves to one another, saying a few things about ourselves. It was really interesting, actually, even though it was something that was normally done in middle school. She handed out the rough syllabus for the entire semester, showing the overall projects and papers that would be needed to be finished over a certain amount of time. I was impressed, and knew that I would be capable of passing this class. Once it was nine o'clock, the class was dismissed, but I didn't move, since European History was supposed to be meeting her as well for its' first class.
Once it was nine thirty, the other students and the teacher came up to the auditorium, his name Mr. McKinley, just like the long-time-ago president. He was very blunt and everything, going over the major topics we would be going over, and all the types of assignments that we would be learning. History had been one of my good subjects in school, so I believed that I would be able to do good in this class.
I remembered my way through the street in which all the sororities were located, so I walked back up the way I came, and went towards the direction Edward had gone, since I was going to be going to Astronomy, which was in the Science Department.
I found the room, and was amazed to see a huge lecture hall, filled with hundreds of students. I had no place to sit, until I saw Rosalie get up and wave at me. Behind her, a few jocks looked down at stared at her ass. She turned and flipped them off, before taking a seat down another row.
"Rose! What are you doing here?" I asked her, since she hadn't told me she would be in this class.
"Surprise! I am officially enrolled in Astronomy." She said, placing her bag down and seating in the open seat in front of her, as I did the same.
Mr. Hiltunen, our teacher, basically went over the same concepts that the other teachers' went over, and gave us our first packet for notes. He thought that if he gave us rare packets of notes, it would give us a break from taking notes ourselves all the time.
As the final minute ticked and finished its path around the clock, I felt relieved that the day had been over. I was actually feeling good about college. I would be able to try my best, and get a lot of work done if I worked hard.
"So how was your first day of college?" Edward asked, as he twirled me around in his arms.
"It was perfect." I smiled, kissing his lips softly.
He chuckled against my lips. "As perfect as me?"
I giggled, holding him close. "Nothing is as perfect as you."
