Live and Love

Chapter 1: Library

Disclaimer: I do not own Twilight, the talented Stephenie Meyer does!

A/N: Yay my first fanfic! Bella is 16, Alice is young for her year and is 15, and Rosalie is 17 (old for her year). Edward is 16, Jasper is 16 and Emmett is 18. All in year 10. Emmett, Alice and Edward are related (Esme and Carlisle are their parents and they're all Vampires) and Rosalie and Jasper are brother and sister (human and so is Bella).

B/POV

"Bella, can I have a word with you?" oh man what does my dad want now it's nearly 10pm and I want to sleep. I slowly made my way down the stairs trying not to trip over, god knows I have enough bruises tripping over my own two feet let alone the bloody stairs.

Charlie, my dad was leaning over the kitchen bench. Crap, I know that look, it happens every time Charlie asks me to do something and feels guilty, it makes me feel guilty that he has to seem so…. cautious with me.

"Yes dad" I quickly asked hoping he didn't notice the un-natural silence.

"Bella the guys from work are going to come over to watch the footy tomorrow, do you mind going out for the day? Just until, around 4?"

"Dad you know that's fine with me all you have to ask." Trying to get out of this and go to bed as quickly as possible. Charlie let out a relieved sigh. You would think he was being sentenced to jail every time he asked me to do something for him, but ever since my mum left us when I was 5 he was scared of me thinking that he would leave me too.

Flashback

"Mummy please don't go!." I screamed over my crying as she was walking to the door. I ran for her, but Charlie held me tight whispering something I couldn't make out.

Mum just took one last look at us and left, out the door, out of our lives.

End Flashback

"Bella please be careful tomorrow" beginning another one of his lectures, I guess it's understandable considering he's a cop and knows exactly what's going on in town.

"Here take 20, love you Bella" he said passing me a twenty dollar note. I said my thanks and stumbled back up the stairs and into my room. I could tell Charlie loved my mum and she broke his heart when she left. I don't think I could ever forgive her for doing that to him, to the both of us, leaving Charlie to raise me alone. I fell asleep to the thought that I would never do that to my family.

I woke up the next morning wondering where I would go. I picked up the phone and rang Rosalie, my best friend. Damn she had a family reunion thing going on today, hanging up the phone as I remembered. I would have to go into town by myself, I would just spend most of the time in the library so hopefully my day would go quickly.

I got dressed, said my goodbye to Charlie and headed to town. I passed a lot of people from school seeing as Forks was a tiny town, thanking god it wasn't raining like usual or else today was going to be tough.

My phone went off and I picked up to a hysterical Rosalie.

"OMG Bella" she shouted into the phone talking 20miles/hr.

"The hottest guy moved in next door his name is Emmett,18 and is going to be new at our school, he has a sister Alice, OMG you will absolutely LOVE her and he also has a brother, he is so your type!" Wow I have never heard Rosalie talk like this she must really be excited.

"Cool Rosalie so how's the family reunion going?"

"Bella did you hear anything I said, how can you take this calmly and the reunions fine, same as usual Uncle Bill and his so-not-funny jokes and Grandma Tess and her over-strong-perfume" good at least she's calming down, I thought as I entered the library.

"Got to go Rose I'm at the library." getting ready for the criticism she normally throws at me when she realizes I'm at the library, I was bracing myself and surprisingly it didn't come.

"Fine Bella but you will know what I'm talking about when you meet them, oh yeah you won't be, seeing as you'll be at the "library"" stretching out the word library as much as possible. There it is, the library jokes…..AGAIN.

"Bye Rose" I sat down with my favourite book 'Wuthering Heights" and prepared myself for a long day.
