A/N: Well like I said, here is the new story. I hope you all will give it a chance. For me? Flutters eyelashes… Enjoy and don't forget to review…
Summary: Bella starts off brand new when she moves to New York City for school. As luck would have it, and as a surprise to Bella, the only rooms left in the dorms are Co-Ed (I have no idea if that's even allowed but we're gonna pretend that it is). Her roommate is Edward Cullen. A friendship is created almost immediately. But what happens when the two fall for each other but don't realize it? Will it take the help of Bella's new best friends to see that the man she loves feels the same? Who knew something so wonderful could happen All Because of a Reese's?

"Wednesday comes in the middle of the week, middle of the week, middle of the week. Wednesday comes in the middle of the week, cuz Wednesday's right in the middle. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, they have gone away. They have gone away. They have gone away. Then comes Thursday, Friday, and soon it's Saturday but Wednesday's right in the middle. It's such a funny riddle. Why is Wednesday in the middle? In the middle, in the middle of the week!"
I heard my father's off-pitch voice ringing through the hotel room. I grunted loudly and threw a pillow in the direction of the annoying sound. I flipped over in my bed and tried to go back to sleep.
"Come on now Bells! It's Wednesday! Do you know what that means?" he yelled.
"It's the middle of the week?" I answered cheekily. My father chuckled.
"Oh, you're a witty one. And yes, it is the middle of the week, but that's not quite the answer I was looking for." I groaned and pulled myself out of bed. I sulked out to the small kitchen that had been included in the small suite we had reserved. I stood in front of Charlie, my dad, with my hands on my hips.
"What do you want?"
"Guess who starts school today?" he asked. My eyes widened in shock. Great Jehosephat! I did! I glanced nervously at the clock and realized I still had three hours to get ready. Part of me thanked Charlie for getting me up so early, but another part of me cursed him for waking me up with such an obnoxious song. I groaned again and walked back to my bedroom. I dug through my suitcase and tried to find a suitable outfit for the day. I decided on a black tank top and white hoodie and skinny jeans with a great pair of black ballet flats. I grabbed my toiletries and ran to the bathroom. After a quick but refreshing shower, I ran out of the bathroom and got ready as fast as I could. I dried my hair and straightened it so my dark brown flowed halfway down my back. I put on the little make up I had which consisted of foundation and mascara and ran out of the bathroom. I grabbed a cereal bar, grabbed my purse and keys and headed out.
"Bye Dad!" I yelled. I heard him say something in response. I contemplated going to give him a hug. I had been slightly cheeky to him and this was his last day in New York. A taxi would be arriving to pick him up while I was at school. I just decided to call him once my day was over. I hurried down the stairs and into my King's Ranch truck. I loved having it here with me. My dad drove it up with him. Something about it made me feel less home sick. I'd already packed all of my belongings in the back of it so that I could move into my dorm once I got there.
I drove safely to the campus. I needed to get my key for my dorm so I headed for the dorm office. I only had to wait in line for about five minutes before I got to the counter.
"Name please?" asked the attendant.
"Isabella Swan," I answered simply. He looked up at me and I realized he was only a couple years older than I was. He gave me a smirk and winked. I found out his name was Tyler. He flirted shamelessly with me before I interrupted him. "Umm, can I have my key please?"
"Sure sweet thing," He winked again while he looked up my room assignment and then frowned.
"Oh," he mumbled. "Well here you go. You'll be in Room 213. Follow the signs. You'll find it." He slipped me a key as well as a piece of paper. I looked at the key. Room 213. I swallowed hard and went back out to my truck. I unfolded the piece of paper and saw a phone number. I laughed slightly and threw the paper to the other seat. I drove over to the dorm building. I found a parking spot close to the door. I grabbed my small duffel bag of necessities to bring up with me. I'd come back down for the rest of my stuff later. As I entered the building I looked around for the signs Tyler had told me about. I gave up quickly and just headed to the elevators. I hit the call button and waited.
The door opened. I shuffled in and quickly pressed the 2.
"Hold the door!" I heard someone yell. I hit the "Hold Door" button and waited. "Thanks so much," a musical voice mumbled. I looked up and almost fell over. I stared into the greenest eyes I had ever seen.
"Whoa," I breathed. I internally hit myself. I hoped my elevator buddy hadn't heard me, but his chuckle told me differently. I stupidly let my eyes wander. His messy bronze hair laid in orderly disarray on the top of his perfectly angled face. I knew I was staring but I couldn't help it. He had the face of an angel in on of Michelangelo's paintings. My eyes went down to look at his body. It was pretty defined. His wiry muscles were showing through his shirt. I blinked a couple of times, making sure what I was looking at was real. It was. I heard the man chuckle again. It brought me out of my daze. I coughed. "Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to--"
"It's alright." He stuck his hand out. "I'm Edward Cullen."
"I'm Bella Swan." I took his hand. I couldn't help but notice he had a very nice hand.
"Nice to meet you Bella Swan," he said lowly.
"Same to you Edward Cullen," I laughed. I heard the elevator ding. "Oh, this is my floor."
"What a coincidence," Edward said.
"What is?" I asked dumbly.
"This is my floor too." I just looked at him. I nodded my head and started to walk away.
"Well," I started, "I guess I'll see you around." He nodded his head in agreement and we went our separate ways. I wandered aimlessly trying to find my room. You would think that the rooms would be in numerical order, but that would only make too much sense. I ran into a couple of people much to their annoyance. I continued to look around for my room. Instead I was met by a huge sign. "CO-ED DORMS". I gasped. This wasn't happening. Boys and girls? My mind swirled with the horrible possibilities. There was a chance I'd be sharing a room with a guy. I walked around some more before I finally found my room. A huge 213 was on the red door (A/N: Imagine the hallways in the dorms in She's The Man). I took out my key and gulped as I opened the door. I was scared to see who my roommate was. I silently prayed for a girl. I pushed the door open and for the second time that day I gasped.
I was staring into those green eyes again. "You?" I asked.
"Me? Uh, yeah…I guess so," Edward said. I fumbled with my key. My roommate wasn't only a male, but it was the male I had been ogling at only twenty minutes before. I felt a familiar blush creep up my face. I heard Edward chuckle. "You were serious when you said we'd see each other." I looked up.
"Yeah," I said, gaining some composure. "So you're my roommate."
"It would appear so."
"Oh great Jehosephat," I mumbled.
"What was that?"
"Oh nothing," I said. Edward let it drop. I looked around the room. What I saw took away all stereotypes I had about school dorms. It looked a lot like my hotel suite, only bigger. We had a small kitchen, a full bathroom, a small living room, and to my dismay, only one bedroom with two queen beds. I dropped my duffel bag and walked around, trying to familiarize myself with my new abode. I walked to the bedroom and sank onto the uncovered bed. I let everything sink in. I heard Edward walk in. He sank onto his own bed. I looked up at him. "So am I your first female roommate?" I asked.
"To be honest, you're my first roommate ever."
"How did you get so lucky?" He laughed.
"I'm not sure. Though I'm sure I won't mind my roommate this year." I blushed again. Something told me I was going to get along with him. Perhaps I'd just met my first friend. It didn't hurt that he was beautiful. I looked at him for another moment before speaking again.
"Well, roomie, tell me something random about yourself."
"Like what?" he wondered.
"Like anything." His brows furrowed and he looked like he was concentrating really hard. "Don't have an aneurysm. It's ok if you can't think of anything." He looked at me and gave me the "Oh please, don't give me that" look. He kept thinking. It seemed like forever before he actually spoke again.
"I secretly wish I could read minds," he admitted. I giggled. "Don't laugh," he said, pretending to be offended. "Tell me something random about you."
"I love peanut butter and chocolate. But sadly it's been almost two months since I allowed myself to eat one. I'd do anything for a Reese's." I answered almost immediately. Edward just stared at me. "What?" I asked. He got up silently and walked out to the kitchen. I started to blush again. I silently cursed myself for saying way too much. As I gave myself a talking to, Edward walked back in. He was holding an orange wrapper. It was all too familiar.
"Like this?" he questioned, holding up a Reese's. My eyes went wide.
"I will love you forever if you let me have that," I said suddenly, surprising myself. Edward chuckled.
"Is that a promise?" he teased. I thought for a moment. I started to really crave that peanut butter. Something told me that Edward would continue to tease me if I didn't answer. I thought for another second before I answered.
"Sure, whatever. I promise. Can I please have the peanut butter now?" I almost begged. If I hadn't wanted it so bad, I would've been embarrassed by how desperate I was acting. He grinned a crooked grin and threw me the Reese's. "Mmm, thank you roomie!" I said. Edward walked back over to his bed and looked at me.
"I can tell that we're going to be friends," he said quietly. I glanced up at him. He still had that grin on his face. I smiled.
"I think so too," I answered. I hadn't really anticipated making a friend on my first day, but I was glad I did. Something told me that Edward and I were going to great friends. I looked around our room. It reminded me about all the stuff I had in my truck. "Dang," I muttered.
"What is it?" Edward asked.
"Ah, nothing. I just forgot about all my stuff in the back of my truck. I need to bring it up here." I started to get up from the bed and walk towards the door. Edward was on my tail.
"I'll help," he offered.
"You don't have to. You already gave me a Reese's. And for that I'm eternally grateful," I joked. I saw him wink at me. He continued to follow me.
"Well, I'm going to help you anyway…friend," he said. I stopped walking and turned to face him.
"Friend," I repeated. He grinned goofily. "I can tell this is the beginning of a great friendship," I said. Edward's grin turned into a full out smile. I laughed. If I'd known this was how my day was going to go, I'd have welcomed my father's obnoxious song. I started to hum "The Wednesday Song" as me and my new friend sauntered down the stairs. This was going to be a great Wednesday.
