Music Appreciation

Chapter 1: Alice.

Seattle. Rainy, cold Seattle. I'd lived in Pheonix, Arizona my entire life but after my mom, Renee, got remarried to Phil, I decided to go live with Charlie, my dad, in Forks during my junior year in high school. Now here I was at Washington University two years later. I wasn't regretting my decision to stay in Washington, but I definitley wasn't jumping for joy. However, most of my friends were going to be here which made it bearable.

I walked down the hallway, slowly, looking for my dorm. When I got to my door, I hesitated before walking in. I could here music playing and knew my roommate would be in there. I was a little wary of meeting new people. I sighed, knowing I'd have to face her sooner or later, and opened the door. When I walked in, I saw a girl with short pixie-like hair rushing around organizing her side of the room. When I shut the door, she turned around at the noise and smiled at me.

"Hi there! My name is Alice Cullen. You must be Bella. It's really nice to meet you," she said, walking up to me and kissing me on the cheek.

"Umm..Yeah. It's nice to meet you, too, Alice," I replied, smiling back at her hesitantly. She seemed nice enough, if not a little energetic. She nodded and turned back around and continued unpacking and organizing her half of the room. I took that as my cue and I turned around too and started to unpack. Alice was playing a CD of classical music that I didn't recognize.

"Hey Alice,"

"Yeah?" She answered humming one of the songs.

"What CD is this?"

"My brother plays the piano and I asked him to make me a CD of some of the songs that he's written and songs that he likes to play." She answered, shrugging. "Do you not like it? I can change it if you'd like."

"No. It's just...wow," I said. "He's amazing."

She laughed musically. "I'll tell him you think so."

After about 10 minutes, I heard the music shut off and looked up.

"I'm gonna go out for dinner with my family. I'll be back later." she answered my silent question.

"Ok, no problem. See ya later!" I replied.

I finished unpacking in silence. Once I was done I decided to check my e-mail. Renee had, of course, sent me an e-mail wondering if I was settled in and how I was liking it. I hit the reply button and wrote:


I just got done unpacking. My roommate seems really nice. I think I'm going to call Jessica and ask her if she wants to have dinner tonight. I'll e-mail you again tomorrow.

I love you,


After I sent the e-mail, I picked up the phone. Jess answered after two rings.


"Hey Jess! You wanna go out for some pizza tonight? I just finished unpacking and I'm starving. Not to mention bored out of my mind."

"Definitely! I'll call Angela, Mike, and Ben and see if they want to go, too."

"Ok cool. I'll meet you there around 8," I said. "Bye Jess!"
