"I was standing by the back corner of the truck, struggling to fight back the sudden wave of emotion the snow chains had brought on, when I heard an odd sound.
"It was a high-pitched screech, and it was becoming painfully loud. I looked up startled.
"I saw several things simultaneously. Nothing was moving in slow motion, the way it does in the movies. Instead, the adrenaline rush seemed to make my brain work much faster, and I was able to absorb in the clear detail several things at once.
"Edward Cullen was standing four cars down from me, staring at me in horror. His face stood out from a sea of faces, all frozen in the same mask of shock. But of more immediate importance was the dark blue van that was skidding, tires locked and squealing against the brakes, spinning wildly across the ice of the parking lot. It was going to hit the back corner of my truck, and I was standing between them. I didn't even have time to close my eyes.
"Just before I heard the shattering crunch of the van folding around the truck bed, something hit me, hard, but not from the direction I was expecting. My head cracked against the icy blacktop, and I felt something solid and cold pinning me to the ground…." (Excerpt from Twilight)
I woke up a bit groggy and disoriented; the van incident took a bit more out of me then I thought but I had to go to school. I didn't want to give Edward the satisfaction of proving him right.
I went downstairs and surprisingly met with Charlie.
"Hey Bells," he greeted me.
"Hey dad," I replied. He said something else but I didn't catch it, "Sorry, what did you say?"
"I asked if you thought you need me to drive you to school." He repeated.
"No, I'm fine, dad," I assured him. He eyed me warily but grunted and left for work.
The day passed without too much trouble. Edward and I made a few comments, but he was saying something about 'not being friends'. It was extremely odd the whole day as I seemed to involuntarily tune people out. I would have to keep asking what people said.
I came home and started on dinner, musing over what Edward said and my seemingly short attention span.
Suddenly Charlie was behind me, looking appreciatively at the food. I jumped and he started laughing and talking, but hard as I could I couldn't catch what he was saying.
A look of horror crossed my face as I ran up to my room grabbing my CD player. I put in the noisiest CD and played it full blast. Cautiously I put it to my ear.
Tears started streaming down my cheeks. I was deaf…
