Stephenie Meyer owns everything Twilight :)

Prologue:

I didn't want to do it. I couldn't do it to him, but at that point I had no other choice. His eyes plead with me as the life slowly left them, his face contorted in pain. I didn't want to give in but I couldn't let him slip away. The pain in my throat increased-becoming unbearable-and I felt the venom readying itself. Bringing my lips to his, I kissed him slowly before moving to his throat. I took a deep breath and as I felt the fire in my throat rage, I took the plunge.

Your Hope Blew Away with the Wind

Bella's POV:

The talk of the town, he was. For weeks now I've heard non-stop chatter about Edward Masen. Finally the day came and his arrival was greeted by questionable thoughts (ranging from curious to rather naughty) of almost the entire female population. Trust me, if I could blush I would. There were some pretty racy fantasies going on. I tried to block out most of them, but in truth a few of them were quite amusing.

I didn't see what all the fuss was about. Sure, he was a good-looking guy, but he didn't seem too spectacular.

As he entered the lunchroom with Mike Newton, I noticed that Lauren Mallory cleared a place for him in record time-next to her. I laughed, remembering her fantasies as some of the more 'amusing' ones.

What is it? I heard a voice in my head. I looked over at Alice who was looking at me. I glanced over to where Edward and Lauren sat. She started laughing lightly.

Did you know that she plans of doing something that involves the supply closet that would be considered assault? But don't worry, before she gets too far the janitor will walk in and save him.

I raised my eyebrows in response. So that's it-I was wondering why she was thinking about 'mops getting in the way'. Then I heard Mike's thoughts.

He's already honing in on the Cullens, huh? How should I break it to him that he won't be getting very far there?

I looked over and sure enough, Edward was staring over at us. Noticing me, he quickly looked away-a move which I'm sure he thought was subtle. I got why he would be looking over at us, though. The five of us pretty much stood out against the rest of the student population.

Emmett, with his muscled arm wrapped around the intimidatingly gorgeous Rosalie, looked pretty menacing. Jasper and Alice were staring off into different directions, but he held her hand like a vice. They weren't as 'on-display' as Emmett and Rose, but no one could doubt that they were one of the most intensely beautiful couples in the last century or so. That left me. Everyone sees my behaviour as anti-social but trust me-it's best if I don't take an interest in anyone.

Edward, stop looking over at them when I'm right here. Lauren was flipping her hair to gain attention. Then I heard Mike, out loud this time.

"The Cullens? Yeah, they're all like, together. Well not Bella but-"

"Which one is Bella?" Edward asked.

"Brown hair. They're all adopted by Doctor Cullen and his wife. They've been with them since they were young. Technically, Alice, Bella and Emmett are siblings and related to Esme, who I think is their aunt or something. She adopted them when they were eight. Rosalie and Jasper, the twins, were adopted later.

"Bella?" Emmett said. "What the new guy's reaction?" I chuckled before trying to hear Edward's thoughts. Unsettling thing was, I couldn't. I wasn't able to read his mind at all.

"I don't know…" I became annoyed. Not only did I have to listen to everyone's fantasies of him but I couldn't hear his thoughts.

Alice and Jasper got up and walked out of the room after throwing out their trays of uneaten food. The next moment, a gust of wind blew through and I was glad that Jasper got away in time. Being the newest to our 'lifestyle', I don't think he could've handled it. And then it hit me.

The sweetest smell I had ever known. Me throat burned like not other and it took my all not to jump across the room at that very moment. I knew the source of the blood calling out to me immediately-Edward Masen. I felt like I couldn't control myself, it was the strongest, sweetest blood that I had smelled in my entire existence.

I examined him from across the room. I could tempt him easily; it wouldn't even take any effort. And he was so easily breakable…I hoped that Alice wouldn't foresee anything, because that was it-my plan was set.


Edward's POV:

The lunchroom was crowded and noisy. I followed Mike to the table he and his friends sat at and I was greeted by Lauren.

Great.

"You can sit here if you want." Not wanting to be rude, I faked a smile and sat down next to her.

"So how are you liking it here?" A girl named Jessica asked me. I assumed that she was Mike's girlfriend by the way that he put his arm around her.

"It's pretty good."

"Is it really different from Arizona?" Lauren smiled, trying flirt. In my head, I rolled my eyes-obviously.

"Yeah, a bit. But I'll get used to it." I looked around the room and that's when I saw them. The guys were intimidating and the girls were gorgeous. They didn't talk or even eat; they just stared off in different directions.

The blonde girl looked like she could be on a centrefold and her boyfriend looked like he could rip me to pieces if he heard that. The little black haired girl looked to be in an intense handholding situation with the tall blonde guy beside her. The last girl, the brown haired girl, appeared to be on her own. She nearly took my breath away she was so beautiful. Just then, she looked over at me. I looked away, embarrassed that she caught me staring.

"Who are they?" I asked Mike, dropping my voice. He knew who I was talking about immediately and explained who they were. As the little one walked out with her boyfriend, I saw that there was no way she couldn't be a dancer. I finally realized why I couldn't seem to look away-their appearance. It wasn't just that they were all immensely good looking, but all five of them had the same pale skin and the same dark shadows under their golden coloured eyes.

"I wouldn't waste your time on Bella if I were you." Mike said once Jessica left. "She may be beautiful, but she won't give you the time of day." I sensed some bitterness coming from Mike and wondered if he had asked out Bella before Jessica. Judging by the look on his face as he turned around to gawk at Bella, he never got over her.

"Anyways," he said, clearing his throat. "I have to get going. But I'll see you later?"

"Yeah, talk to you later." As Mike got up, I noticed that Bella was staring at me again, this time with a hungry look in her eye and a seductive half smile playing across her lips. It sent a shiver through my spine. I wouldn't mind being pursued by Bella at all. I wondered which guy would. I mean, Rosalie was hot, but it was like Bella knew she was beautiful but didn't flaunt it. Plus, she had the whole mysterious thing that only made her appeal grow stronger.

I cursed the bell when it rang, forcing me to tear my eyes from Bella's. Lauren walked with me to my biology classroom, clenching her fists and taking a deep breath as she stared longingly at the supply closet door when we passed it. I didn't even want to know what she was thinking about.

"I have to get to Trig right now, but I'll talk to you later?" she asked hopefully.

"Yeah, um thanks…Lauren." I smiled politely before walking into the room. Upon doing so, I was floored. There-at the table with the only available seat-was Bella Cullen. I didn't even thing of anything else as Mr. Banner signed my slip and pointed me to the open seat.

Sitting down, I noticed that her eyes were no longer golden, but nearly black. What distracted me was that the hungry look was back. She turned to me and flashed me a dazzling smile. I'm sure I looked stupid just sitting there blinking, but I couldn't help it. She looked beautiful, alluring-and dangerous. In the smoothest, silkiest voice I've ever heard, she spoke.

"You must me Edward Masen. I'm Bella Cullen."

All right, new story! I think I'm going to have some fun writing this one-it was time for the vampires to take place.
