Chapter 1

"Did you tell them you didn't want to do it?" My best friend Lilly practically yelled.

"Well, no, but I mean, common this is a good thing," I was trying to compromise with her, "And on top of that, do you realize how good it will look on my college applications?"

"But I'll be alone!," She started to whine, the students walking past us were watching the scene. Lilly tended to whine a lot, especially when she didn't get her way, and it would be very annoying when she would make a scene infront of everyone. This was in fact our second day of school at Forks High and my teachers all agreed that I should be moved up a year, which was not a problem with me, but mostly for Lilly. This was the first year that both Lilly and I had the same exact schedule, and we were excited to be with each other all day, "Are you going to do it?"

I looked at her in disbelief, "Yes."

She rolled her eyes and walked away from me. I watched her for a few seconds, hoping she was just joking around with me and would turn back around, but she didn't, she swiftly turned the corner, and was out of sight. I looked at my schedule to see where my first period class was, which was room number 107. I looked at the closet class room and realized that it was only room number 22. I know there aren't a total of one hundred and seven classrooms in forks High; in fact I doubt there are a total of thirty.

"Excuse me," I stopped a student, "Do you know here room 107 is?"

"Oh yah, it's down this hall to your left, I think it's the room in the middle."

I thanked the student and started to walk down the hallway, I picked my phone from my pocket and carefully slid it open, I was excited about my new cell phone, probably more excited then any other teenager who receiver a new phone, finally in my whole existence my mother bought me a good looking phone, and I was not about to do anything to break it. I read the time with was 7:29pm.

Before I could even slide my phone back into my pocket the late bell rang. I felt my stomach turn; I was late for my second, well technically first day of being a senior. I took a left at the end of the hall and looked at the room numbers. I counted them off in my head, trying to calm myself. Then my eyes landed on the number 107. I took a deep breath and opened the door. I could feel everyone in the classroom's eyeslooked at me, and I looked directly to the teacher, not wanting to seem afraid.

"Yes?" She asked me, probably a little flustered that I came in while she was taking attendance.

I handed her my schedule, she looked over it and then smiled.

"Well congratulations, Natalie, not many students can say they skipped their junior year."

I smiled, but only looked her way, not even daring to glance at the students.

"Well take a seat anywhere," My new teacher said pointing to some of the empty seats. She gave me back my schedule, and I made my way through the rows of seats towards the back of the classroom, where an empty seat awaited me. The rest of class was long and boring, as were my other three classes. Finally though, lunch rolled around, and I was anxious to see how Lilly was acting.

I walked into the small cafeteria and looked around for Lilly; I spotted her standing in line with some other juniors I hadn't had a chance to meet. I walked to the line, but didn't bother trying to stand next to her, so instead I stood at the end and awaited my turn.

Finally after receiving my lunch, I looked around the cafeteria trying to spot my friend, it didn't take two long since our cafeteria was the size of a chicken coop. I took a deep breath as I walked to her table. I was thinking in my head what I should do. Should I ask her if it was alright to sit with her? But why would I need her approval? Or should I just sit down at the table and act as if nothing went wrong? I wasn't to scared about her not wanting to talk to me, she would have to eventually, since I am her ride home.

"Hey Lilly," I decided to say as I sat down at the table

She looked at me and gave me a faint smile as I sat down at the table.

"Hi," She muttered, but went back to talking with her friends. I ate lunch in silence easdropping at her and her friends conversations. Though Lilly's conversations with her friends was not the only thing that caught my attention. In the corner of my eye, I could see a boy, with semi long blonde locks staring at me
