AN: Here is my new all-human story. This chapter is now revised and all of my dates are now more in line. Bella is a bit different and so are some the other characters. You'll see why…. Any who….
Here we go!
P.S. Review good or bad!
Diclaimer: I do not own Twilight.
Rainy forks. Same old thing. On top of it being rainy Forks, it's a Monday. Not just any old Monday but the first day of school. My dad, Charlie, was rushing about the house trying to find his keys. See what these ugly Mondays do to people? They make them forget important things and make people go a little whack.
Jeez Charlie! Don't you remember anything? Your keys are right on the table.
"Your keys have been on the table the whole time."
"Oh. Thanks Bella."
"Your welcome. Are you alright?"
"Uh...yeah Bella…Uh… just… work."
"Sure Charlie. Is something wrong?"
"Charlie something is wrong because you would never be nervous about anything at work."
"Fine. There's this woman that is coming in to apply for co-chief. She was my ex-girlfriend. And she is very nice and smart… and… pretty."
Charlie said that very low. I'm thinking he didn't want me to hear the pretty comment. But like I'm going to pretend I didn't hear that.
" Charlie, why don't you just ask her on a date? It has been a while since you have done anything besides fishing or your job. I think it would be a good experience for you."
"I don't know Bella…"
"Well Alice is coming over today and she's staying the week. Remember? I will have her help you out."
"Ok Bella, I guess no one can say no to Alice."
"Yup! That's true!"
Alice is my best friend. She looks like a pixie or a fairy. She's really quite beautiful. She has very pale skin, just like me. Her hair is cut short and is jet black and spiky. He eyes are very pretty, like autumn leaves. Her personality is very… crazy. She loves to shop and is super happy and energetic. Too energetic for a girl her size. She's tiny! I on the other hand am nothing like that. I am a klutz and have brown eyes and hair. Nothing special.
We have known each other since the 5th grade when she moved here. Her dad died when she was 2 and her mom had to look after her. The opposite of me. My mother died in 1st grade and now my dad, Charlie, has to take care of me. We just clicked when we met. Now her mom is the mom I needed and my dad is the dad she needed. Funny how things work out.
" Bye Bella."
I'm guessing most of you don't know much about me. I'll start with the basics. My name is Isabella Swan, but I'd much rather be called Bella. I'm 17 and in my last year of high school. I live in Forks, Washington with my dad, Charlie, my "sister" Alice, and our "mom" Mary. Alice and her mom don't really live with us but they each have their room and are over all the time, as are we. I live in a decent sized home on 555 Twilight Lane.
Charlie works as a chief in the police department here, in Forks, and in La Push. That's how he gets a ton more money than he used to, back when we lived in the little yellow house I was raised in. With that extra money, Charlie was also able to get me a car for my sweet 16. It's a really cute blue little Volkswagen beetle. I absolutely love it. Of course Alice is always one notch up. Her mom does clothing designing. Figures. That's were Alice get her shopping addiction from. She got a pink Audi. Surprisingly, it doesn't look as bad as it sounds.
My school, Forks High, is only 4 blocks from my house. Just goes to show you how small this town is.
I looked at the clock. Crap. It was already 7:50. Alice would be here in ten minutes. I wasn't even close to being ready. I still had to get dressed, comb my hair and put my make up on. Great. I told you. This is what Mondays do to people. I didn't even know what to wear. Alice had bought me a ton of things over summer but she wasn't here right now to help me out with my outfit. I got everything done and waited for Alice. Hopefully she could work out the dilemma. As if on cue Alice came bursting into my room.
" Ok, Good! I knew you wouldn't know what to wear so I came over I little early to help you get an outfit picked out!"
She let out a squeal of delight. Leave it to Alice to make any day better. She picked out a blue halter-top and a pair of denim Capri's. It wasn't half bad.
Alice decided that she would drive to school. It being "her special day". I really could care less. Right when we walked past the office I could see all our friends. Angela was there with her long time boyfriend Ben. Jasper was waiting for Alice as usual. Jasper was Alice's 2-year boyfriend. They were the cutest couple. You could just see the love in their eyes when they walked by each other. Rosalie was Jaspers' twin. Alice and I became really good friends with her. She sure was a handful, but Rose was one of the best people I have ever met. We all walked to get our class papers to see what classes we got. I had 3 classes with Alice and 2 classes with Rosalie. Angela was in my English class but Jasper wasn't in any of my classes. With our luck, Me, Rosalie and Alice got P.E. together. That will definitely be an interesting class.
" Yeah! I got classes with you and Rose!! I'm so happy!"
Alice started to jump up and down. Her jumping apparently was contagious because Rose and me started to jump with her as well. Jasper just sat there looking at us and laughing. Couldn't girls be happy?
Some girls walked past us whispering and giggling. Rose gave Alice and me a look.
"I wonder what that's all about." Rose said
Alice already walking toward the group of girls. Probably going to ask them what the commotion was about.
" We should go follow Alice. I actually want to know. Maybe it's some hot guy!"
Jasper chuckled and I gave him a playful glare.
"What Jasper? I'm just asking. A girl can wonder."
I smiled only causing him to chuckle more. Alice was now talking animated with the group of girls. What ever it was Alice was interested.
Rose and I got super lucky. Apparently there wasn't one, but two hot guys! They were brothers too! Rosalie and started to squeal too.
" Alice! Rose! We have to go over there and see what they look like! Come on!"
"You two can go. I've got all I need right here. But please do tell me what they look like!"
"Sure thing Alice!"
Rose and I headed over to the now dissolving group of people around the new kids at school. Oh. My. Gosh. They were both gorgeous! Rosalie had her eyes on the big one with huge rippling muscles. I on the other hand had me eye on the one with the disheveled auburn hair. He had the most wonderful green eyes. They were shining like emeralds.
Great. My moment was ruined. Rosalie put her eyes back into her head and said her good byes to me. I was off to my Science class. One of the few classes I didn't have with Rosalie or Alice.
I had the worst science teacher in the school. Mr. Hessen. He had a history of getting angry and doing stupid things to his students. Just my luck.
On my way in I stepped on a plastic bottle and it sent me flying into the air. I put my hands in front of my face, preparing to hit the floor. But when a pair of arms caught me by my waist, I was a bit surprised.
"Are you alright?" a velvet voice asked.
"Um… err yeah I think I'm ok. No brain damage. Thanks a lot for basically saving my life."
"No problem. My pleasure."
He winked at me! It was the really handsome one I was drooling over earlier! He was in my worst class with me and he was my lab partner! This day couldn't get any better.
We sat down and I had to text Alice and Rosalie. They wouldn't believe this.
To: Alice , Rosalie
Girls! I have some amazing news. Guess what? That really cute boy that is new 2 the school is in my science class! He's also my lab partner and saved me from falling!
It took me a while to send the text. When I looked up the guy was staring at me.
" My name's Edward by the way."
" Oh, my name's… Bella"
Great way to show how smart you are. I forgot my name.
"Nice to meet you Bella."
"Thanks, It's nice to meet you too."
My phone buzzed.
1 new message from Alice
Great! How lucky. You should flirt w/ him! Maybe he likes you!
Who does she think I am? I can't just flirt with people. Not consciously at least.
You know I cant just do that! I wont do that either. I'll just end up making a fool of myself.
He was looking at me again when I finished. I wonder if he was watching what I had been texting. That would be so embarrassing.
My buzzed again, saving me from his gaze.
1 new message from Rosalie
Do you know his name? His brother is named Emmett. What a hunk!
Mr. Hessen came around and gave us all a basket of materials for the lab we were about to do. Hopefully this didn't involve any talking to the man of my dreams.
"Class! Please sit down! Now I want all of you to assemble the podium for the test tubes. Instructions are in the basket. Please work with you partner."
Edward rotated in his seat to face me.
" So, shall we begin our assignment?"
He was so dazzling that it took me a while to snap out of my trance and answer him.
"Yeah sure. Do you know were the instructions are?"
"Yes, I have them right here."
" Okay. Then lets start with the first step. Or would you like to build it?"
"That would probably be best, since you have already shown me that you can almost kill yourself by stepping of a water bottle."
"Ummm… yeah it probably would be."
I had forgotten to text Rosalie back so I decided I would take that time now that Edward was in the bathroom.
Yes. His name is Edward. Is Emmett in one of your classes?
My phone buzzed a second later. Alice and Rosalie had replyed.
1 new message from: Alice
Oh come on Bella! It would be fun for you. Aren't you the one that wants ur dad 2 go on a date? Flirt with him and maybe he will ask you out, then we could all go on a date when Charlie leaves!
1 new message from: Rosalie
Yeah Emmett is in the class I am in right now. We've been flirting with each other the whole time. He's so perfect!
Maye I should flirt with Edward. It doesn't sound that bad. A double or triple date wouldn't be that bad either. I guess I can try. Maybe tomorrow, because I barely know him.
Edward walked back into the room and sat down. We were the first ones to finish the podium and we were then able to start with the test tubes.
"Do you have anything to do on Saturday?"
Oh gosh. Did he just ask me out? What do I say? How do I respond? Help!
" I don't know… I have to… check my calender."
"Okay. When you do know then call me."
He slipped me note with his number on it. Saturday was in 4 days! How was I going to get Charlie on a date so soon? Should I just stay away from him? No, he'd think I was crazy. Ugh! It's a good thing Alice is staying the week. Speaking of Alice, I have to tell Alice and Rose!
So? Whatcha think? I know that I might seem a little too fast, but my mind just went a little crazy there.
Read and Review!
I hope everyone liked it and was interested. See how that characters are different?
Please review, don't want this story to end up like A Fate.
