Teardrops On My Guitar

Chapter 1

Bella's POV

"Mommy! Mommy! How did you and daddy meet?" asked Riley, my daughter.

"I'll tell you tomorrow Riles. Go to sleep now babay." I kissed her forehead.

I went downstairs and sat on the couch.

I smiled remembering the first day I met him.

Flashback

It was my first day of kindergarten, and I had just moved to Forks. My teacher's name was Ms. Smith. We had free time. I was sitting on a table playing with play- dough when this mean guy grabbed it out of my hand.

"Hey! Give it Back!" I yelled.

"I don't want to!"

"Mike, be nice to her and give her the play-dough." A little boy with hair that looked like a penny and green eyes said.

Mike gave the play-dough back to me and ran away.

"Thank you." I told the pretty boy.

"You are welcome! My name is Edward, what's your name?"

"Bella."

"You are pretty Bella. You want to be my new best friend?" He asked.

"Yes!" I grinned.

"Okay, you want to meet my sister?" He asked.

"Okay."

He grabbed my hand and led me over to a short girl with short black hair and green eyes.

"Alice, this is my new best friend Bella. Bella this is my sister. Her name is Alice." He said.

Alice jumped up and hugged me.

"Hi Bella!" She said.

"Hi Alice." I said, the girl was a pixie.

I smiled, I already made two new friends.

"Do you have a brother?" She asked.

"Yes. His name is Emmett. He is sick today." I said.

"Let's go play Bella!" Edward said, we all went and built block towers.

Then it was time to go home, my mommy was standing with Edward's mommy. She told me that Edward lived right next to our house. I was very happy.

I went over to their house to play after school. Emmett came too, everyone thought he was funny. Rosalie and Jasper came too, they were my other neighbours and were in Grade 1.

I liked all of them. They were very nice.

GRADE 5

"Edward!!" I yelled running over to him.

"What's wrong Bells?" He asked.

"Mike is trying to kiss me." I told him.

"Where is he?" Emmett said, we were all in the same grade now. Alice, Edward and I skipped Grade 2.

"Over there." I said, Emmett and Jasper left to talk to Mike.

Edward wanted to go to but I wouldn't let him.

I saw Emmett and Jasper yelling at Mike. The he looked scared and ran way.

We all walked home together. Emmett, Rosalie, Jasper and Alice were in the same class and had a lot of homework. Edward and I were in the same class, and didn't have any homework.

So they went to Alice's house to do homework and we went to my house. We just sat around and did nothing.

"Edward, who do you want your first kiss to be with?" I asked as I read my mom's magazine that I found. Edward looked up from his Xbox game.

"You of course", he stated simply, turning back to his game. I got up from the loveseat and went to sit next to him pausing the game.

"Bella what are you doing?!" Edward exclaimed.

"Kiss me" I said.

Edward froze. I heard him gulp.

"What?"he said nervously turning to look at me.

"You heard me, Kiss me." I gave him my famous pout and he looked away.

"Why?We are too young Bells." He said blushing. I smiled.

"No we are not, everyone does it and I want to see what the fuss is about, please..." I batted my eyelashes, I am sure I was blushing just as much as Edward was.

"I really don't know."

"Oh pretty please. I want you to be my first kiss. What if someone kisses me without me agreeing?" I pushed.

"Bella." He said.

"Come on Edward, aren't you curious?" I asked.

"Well, yeah kinda." He said.

"Then do it". Edward leant forward, defeated and pressed his lips to mine. I felt this shock go through me. I didn't know what it meant.

He pulled away, I didn't tell him about the shock, he probably didn't feel it.

"Well, that was…interesting." He said looking the other way, and I could see him smiling.

I smiled too.

Grade 8

"Edward!" Lauren screeched. We were sitting in homeroom and I sat beside Edward, and Lauren, well she was madly in love with him.

Edward looked the same, but different. He had the same bronze hair, but it was very messy yet perfect. His eyes were the same, still the green I loved. He got a lot taller. He was probably about 5 feet 7 inches. He was about 5 inches taller than me, but we still had to grow.

"Edward, you want to go to the dance with me?" Lauren asked attempting to sound sexy, but sounding…slutty?

"No thank you Lauren. I am going to the dance with someone else." He said.

I don't know why but I felt this pain course through me. My heart hurt like someone was pulling at it. I don't know why I felt that way. It was Edward, he was my best friend for goodness sakes. But I couldn't help but feel jealous, who was he going with? He was probably going to spend all his time with her.

That's when I realized I liked him. A lot. I guess I always have.

"Who are you going with?" Lauren asked, breaking me from my thoughts.

"Umm…Bella! I am going with Bella!" He stammered.

I gave him a questioning look.

Lauren glared at me and walked away.

"What was that about?" I asked.

"I didn't want to go to the dance with her." He shuddered. "And you are the first person I thought of when she asked who it was. I hope you don't mind." He said, somewhat embarrassed.

I was the first person he thought of, did that mean he likes me? He probably just said me because I am his best friend. Nothing more. I could never be more...

"It's okay Edward. Does this mean I actually have to go to the dance? I can't even dance." I groaned.

"We don't have to go, we can go to the movies or something?" He sounded nervous.

Was he asking me on a date? Probably not. He was so perfect, and I was plain. How could someone like him like me? He probably thinks of me as a sister.

"Okay, we can watch a movie."

Grade 11

Grade 11, Forks High School. I have known Edward forever. I am still best friends with Edward but I am in love with him. I really love him. And I am hopeless. Edward is the hottest guy in the school. Every girl wants him.

But he says no to all of them and when I ask why he says he just doesn't like them. I guess he is waiting for his perfect girl. I wish I could be her. But I can't. Edward, is well gorgeous. He has messy bronze hair, piercing green eyes, he is 6 feet tall and stunning.

Then there is me, absolutely plain. I have brown hair, brown eyes, an average body and I am the normal 5 foot 7 inches.

Life sucks. My heart breaks every time I see him talking to another girl, knowing that someone like them would be in his life soon, and how I wished it could be me.

"BELLA!" I turned around to see Edward running towards me, he had a big grin on his face. I was early today. There was no one at the school.

"What's up Cullen?" I asked.

"I need to talk to you." He said pulling me towards the benches outside the school. He literally ran there. We sat under our tree. We always sat there. It was our special place.

"What happened Edward?" I asked, laughing.

"I am in love." He said.

I knew this day was going to come, one day or another. But still my heart ripped into a million pieces.

I faked a smile, so he won't see, that it hurt me.

"Who is it?" I asked trying to sound happy.

"I can't tell you. But I will give you a clue every period and you get to guess." He said.

He looked so happy. I felt like crying, why do I love him? Why do I need him? He is in love with someone else...

"Okay." I said.

"Your first clue." He said when the warning bell rang. We got up and went off to first period.

"Okay."

"She is the most beautiful creature to walk this earth. She always looks beautiful, no matter what she does, or what she wears." He said grinning.

Beautiful, then someone who looked like Alice and Rose. Alice looked like Edward now, with their eyes an all. But her hair was black and straight. She really did look like a pixie. She told me she loved Jasper in grade 9 and they have been insperable since then.

Rosalie, well she looks like a model. She has long shiny blond hair, blue eyes, and a killer body. The type you would see in a fashion magazine. Everyone loves her. She was going out with my big doofus of a brother. He has had a crush on her since the first day he saw her.

And apparently she did too, so they have been dating since grade 9 and are in love.

"Bella?" Edward asked.

"Yes." I said

"Where are you lost?" He asked.

"No where. Just thinking. Let's go to class." I said.

We went to class and I couldn't concentrate, there was a pain in my chest. Who did he love? It was probably Jessica or Lauren. All the boys lusted after them. They both liked Edward too.

The bell rang. And Edward walked me to my next class. We had every class together. Today I wish we didn't. Its really hard to keep up the happy act.

"Clue two- She is really smart, she reads a lot! And loves music." He said.

Well that rules out Lauren, she is not smart, doesn't read and listen to 'bubble gum songs'.

"Edward can't you just tell me?" I asked. So I can go home and cry my eyes out, and wish I was her.

"Nope." He said.

I groaned. We had Spanish, and the teacher was absent, and we had a subsitute.

I started to write a song, I wrote many but most of them were just stupid. It helped me vent my feelings.

The rest of the day passed dreadfully slow, I wanted to cry. I wanted to just dissapear.

Edward gave me a lot of clues. I am really confused.

Clue three: He has known her for as long as he can remember.

Clue four: She has the deepest most beautiful eyes and he gets lost in them all the time.

That one hurt a lot, he really did love her. I went to the washroom and cried my eyes out but it didn't help. When he asked if I had been crying I told him soap had gotten into my eyes,

Clue 5: She plays an instrument.

Clue 6: I know her very well, I have known her for longer than he has. But he knows her better even better than she knows himself.

That one stumped me. He hardly talks to any girl, except Rosalie, Alice and me. Maybe I never noticed. Because I don't want to notice.

Clue 7:She is stubborn, and he always looses against her.

Clue 8: She makes him lose all thoughts just when she looks at him.

Just like he does to me.

So those were the clues and I couldn't think who it was. I finished my song though.

I went to the music room and got my guitar and started playing my song. It was exactly how I was feeling. I started playing, and crying silent tears.

I hope you guys like it. Reviews make me write faster. And check out my vampire story which is not complete.
