This is my first story and i hope you enjoy it:
(Half human half vampire, the struggles of Renesme Carlie Cullen the daughter of Bella and Edward from the Twilight saga.
Bella and Jacob have had a story and Stephanie Meyer's started one from Edwards point of view aswell; so I thought I'd give Nessie a story too.)
My first day at school is going to be awful.
"Please don't make me go mum" I said touching my mother's cheek. She just sighed and said
"It's the law, you have to go to school and besides you need a proper education."
I love my mum she's wonderful and so breathtakingly beautiful, and so is my dad- they're like the most perfect couple I've ever seen-well besides from the rest of my family that is.
It was then when I saw it; the school. It was full of children. I froze. My mum took my hand and dragged me along- it didn't matter how much I tried to break free from her hands- it was impossible. It was stupid of me to try in the first place.
I looked at my dad with tears in my eyes, making him see all of my thoughts and fears.
"I know you don't want to go Nessie but it'll be ok, I promise, and me and Bella will be nearby."
It's not fair I thought to myself; forgetting that my dad knew what I was thinking anyway.
"It'll be fine, wont it Alice?"
"I cant see anything going wrong yet".
I looked back at Alice with a tear in my eye. "Are you sure?"
She paused, looked again and then replied "The only thing you've decided is that you're not going, and don't throw a tantrum to try and get sent home it's childish" she laughed and so did dad.
Alice can see the future but only when the decisions been made, it's her gift: my dad can read minds, my mum's like some sort of shield against 'mental harm', Jasper can read and influence emotions and I can show people how I feel and what I'm thinking by simply touching their cheek.
"Ok so lets make sure you know all the rules before you go in" my dad said staring into my eyes with a serious expression on his face.
"No. one: Avoid direct contact with everyone especially their faces- you'll frighten them and you'll blow our cover" he said while mum and Alice nodded their heads in agreement with worried eyes.
"No. two: Do not tell anyone that you're only half human, that we're vampires or that you're in love with a werewolf".
Shape-shifter I corrected him in my thoughts, not wanting to embarrass him. He smiled and then continued the list of rules.
"No. three: You're ten years old. Don't let anyone know your real age because you look a lot older" he said and then my mum interrupted.
"If the teachers ask why you're only just coming to school now just tell them you were being taught at home, Sorry Edward, carry on" she motioned with her hand for him to proceed. He opened his mouth and then Alice began to speak "She knows the rules Edward, you and Bella have been drumming them into her head for weeks and besides she needs to go in now". Just as she stopped speaking the school bell went and all of the kids lined up and waited to be filed into the building.
Mum and dad hugged and kissed me but mum wouldn't let me go.
Ow! I cant breathe, make her stop I thought and then my dad cleared his throat.
"Bella, you're hurting her" he said, not meaning to be rude.
"Oh im sorry Renesme" she started to say and then Alice took hold of my shoulders and kissed me on the head "Go in now or you'll be late" she whispered to me.
I smiled and started to walk in, I glanced behind me wanting to run back and then I heard a familiar voice.
He was panting, almost out of breath "S-s-sorry im late" he stuttered "I didn't get much sleep last night…" he began. Then he saw me, ran towards me and scooped me up in his arms spinning me around and gave me a great big hug and a long lingering kiss on the top of my head.
I touched his cheek to show him how happy I was to see him; a big beaming smile spread across his face.
"Renesme!" my mum shouted, I looked at them all at the gate and they all appeared to be rather annoyed. Jake put me down gently and ruffled my hair "Give'em hell kid" he winked and then walked back to where my family stood.
"She's late now!" Alice hissed. Jacob shrugged his shoulders and I laughed.
Then my mum looked at dad and sighed "We'd better take her in and speak to the receptionist".
I started to walk away towards the school; because as much as I didn't want to be here, I also didn't want the embarrassment of my parents having to walk me all the way in. I felt a sudden gust of wind and then they were both walking beside me with their hands on my shoulders.
Errr this is so embarrassing! I can do this myself, I wish they'd at least let go of me. Then dad removed his hand and held the door open for mum and I.
"Hello, sorry it's my daughters first day and she's a bit late and she's not sure where she's supposed to go" she said, trying hard to cover up the fact that her voice sounded like she was singing, when she spoke to the receptionist.
The receptionist was shocked at the very sight of us. She was quite plump and her hair cut was all wrong; she could use a make over from Alice. I looked at my dad and he was trying not to laugh at what I was thinking but he couldn't help the smile that crept across his face. Then he whispered, low enough so that only I could hear, "Behave yourself".
"Oh erm, you must be the Cullens. So this is Renesme" she said peering over the rims of her thick glasses " and you must be Mr and Mrs Cullen" my mum nodded shyly. I'd have thought that after all this time she'd be used to being called Mrs Cullen by now.
"Yes that's right, but call me Bella" she said.
"Edward" he said raising his hand to shake hers, she shivered at the touch of his icy skin.
I stared out the door at Jacob wishing he'd save me from my inevitable doom. I just knew something was going to go wrong. Then the receptionist, Jill, because even though I was lost in my own thoughts I could still hear them talking, smiled at me. "Come along now, your class room's this way".
Then she began to walk down the long corridor, I glanced over my shoulder only to see that my parents had already gone.
Before I knew it she was opening the door to a class room. My class room. I gulped hard and stepped in to the room.
It was so loud, all the screaming, laughing and all of them running around- these kids were like animals and believe me that's something considering my whole family are vampires and even they don't scare me!
I pressed myself against the wall wishing that I could just disappear while Jill silenced them and they all went to sit in their assigned seats. Then she looked back to me "Your teacher's not here yet take a seat and I'll go find someone to take the register" she smiled at me and then walked out the door.
I was all alone with these humans! They were all staring at me, there was only one seat left so I edged my way towards it trying not to brush by any of them or have eye contact. I sat down. Then I watched the clock above the white board. You can do this, you can do this! I kept saying to myself then someone tapped my shoulder. I jumped out of my chair and spun around to see who it was. They all looked terrified. I guessed that the girl behind my seat, who was shaking and still had her hand suspended in the air, had been the one that tapped my shoulder.
"Erm, sorry." she said shrinking in her chair "I didn't me to scare you, I just wanted to know your name" she looked up at me hopefully and then twiddled her hair with her little finger nervously.
"It's ok" I started "I just wasn't expecting it that's all" I paused "my name's Renesme, what's yours?" I asked as I sat back down.
"I'm Rachel, erm I like your name it's nice" she smiled politely. I should at least try and make an effort at conversation.
"My mum came up with it because her real mum's called Renee but her mother in law's called Esme so she just merged it together and came up with Renesme, but you can call me Nessie if you like" I said. Then I realised that some of the words I used were probably a bit advanced for her age. She smiled and nodded sheepishly.
The teacher walked in ending the awkward silence, and I gave a sigh of relief. She began calling out the students names. I wasn't paying attention, I stared out the window and imagined that me and Jacob were playing outside.
"Renesme?" she said and then I snapped back to reality but I still couldn't speak.
"Renesme Cullen?" she said while she scanned the class room for a face she didn't recognise. I ducked and then her voice took on a tone which I knew meant that she was now getting impatient.
"Renesme Carlie Cullen can you please raise your hand" she sighed and then Rachel kicked my chair. My hand flew up automatically. She looked at me and then ticked me off.
"You can put your hand down now" she said. The class giggled and I blushed and tried to sink into my chair.
"Silence! It's Renesme's first day and you should make her feel welcome" she half smiled at me.
Then I looked around the class and to my horror everyone had turned round to look at me. I felt like I was being interrogated by their eyes, like they knew what I was. I just wanted the ground to open up and swallow me...
Let me know what you think please :)
