Hi this is my first fan fic so please be nice, but some constructive crit is welcome. Anyho, on with the story.
I am Bella Swan, Isabella Swan, but I prefer Bella. I lived in Florida with my mother most of my life, Emmett my older brother lived with us for a while but moved with in our dad Charlie who lives in Forks.
I didn't like living with Mom on my own, Phil was a little over bearing at times and there was no one to watch out for me, I have hardly any friends, well non to be truthful, I had Emmett's friends to talk to but they only put up with me because of my brother.
So that is why I am on this plane to Forks, the most wet town I know, the darkest and green town. I didn't hate Forks I disliked it very much, I like sun and warmth not cold and wet.
I arrived at the air port a little later then scheduled but that was normal when flying anywhere, I watched as the bags moved around on the conveyor belt for collection, finding mine I grabbed the handle and tugged, of course I fell landing on my ass, like all ways, some people giggled others smirked and made comments again like always.
Getting up and brushing my cloths down I took the handle on my bag and walked off down to the gates to meet my up family, ignoring the comments that I was used to getting from my 'clumsiness'.
Hearing a booming laugh over all the commotion of the holidaymakers I smiled, I loved my brother, he is always there for me, watching out for me and being the best brother anyone could possibly ask for.
"Bella... over here!" he shouted making some people turn as the large airport turned silent.
"God Emmett, can you yell any louder." I shouted back as I walked to his running form. Charlie stood chuckling at us as he usually did, but there stood next to him was the Goddess herself, Emmett's girl friend, Rosalie. She was the most stunning girl I have ever seen, her blond hair pulled into an elegant bun and her bright umber eyes stood out from her dark lashes, I'd seen pictures but nothing could prepare me for the shock of seeing her with my own two eyes. I instantly felt self concious, me being what five foot two inches, brunette and chocolate eyes, my pale skin. Nope not one thing about me could compare to the beauty that stood smiling at me.
"How's my little sis?" Emmett boomed as he wrapped his large arms around my body and lifted me up squeezing me tightly to his vast chest.
"Can't... breathe... Em..." I said struggling to breathe against his tight hold. Chuckling he loosened his arm and flung me over his shoulder and grabbed my back, walking back to Charlie and Rose I smiled grimly at the people starring at me, I could guess how strange this looked, a small fragile looking girl gets thrown over a beefy man who cannot be quiet when he talks, I would most likely be laughing my ass of it it wasn't me that was the one they were thinking about.
"Hay Bella hunny." Charlie said with an obvious smile on his face even if I couldn't see him.
"Hay dad, Em you can put me down now."
"Are you kidding I saw you fall before when you were getting your bag, we are not going to hospital before we even get home." he chuckled tightening his grip on me, I had no chance of escape and if I tried I knew it would just end up with me injuring myself once more so I knew better.
"Hay Bella, Em has told me so much about you, and I can't wait for us to go out with Alice to the mall and stuff." Rose said walking behind Emmett to talk to me.
"Alice?" I asked, not having a clue who she was.
"My brother, Jasper's girl friend, she can't wait to meet you." she smiled, I feel I may get to like her, if I could just stop feeling self concious around her.
"Oh." I said leaning on my hand with my elbow on Emmett's large shoulder.
"You start school tomorrow, Bella." Charlie said from behind me as he lead the way to the car, the fine misty rain hit the skin on my neck and face, and here's were it starts, hardly any sun, oh the joy.
"Right." I said noticing the sad and glum my voice held.
"It's not that bad bells, me and Rose are there, I'm sure you'll make lots of friend's." Emmett said knowing I didn't communicate like most teenagers my age.
"Yeah, and your kinda the only new person that we have received at the school other then Em, so everyone will want to know you." Rose said pating my shoulder trying to comfort me but I knew that, it was the attention I didn't want. If they didn't make a fuss over the new person I would be fine, it's the attention of being new that, as all accident prone people know, you don't want attention at all.
"Yeah and i'll be taking you to lessons so that you don't kill your self on the move, just think of the headlines, 'chief Swan's daughter killed in hallway after falling leaving her class room.' that would be so funny!" Emmett cried trying not to laugh but failing miserably
"Thanks Emmett, your the loveliest brother ever."
"Emmett that is so not funny, say sorry Now!" Rose said hitting him hard in the arm and pulling a angry face that I thought was pretty scary, remind me not to get her upset, I thought not wanting to see what it's like on the receiving end of it.
I felt Emmett shiver before making a very funny, child like apology, then swinging me down off the perch on his shoulder he sat me in the back seat of Charlie's police cruiser.
The way home was full of reminiscing and funny stories of my, hem, 'accidents' and Emmett's pranks on Phil, which to my amusement had made Charlie tell him off with a wide grin planted across his face, he knew he loved Em to annoy our step father.
That night I didn't sleep well the rain on the window woke me up every time I actually fell off to sleep, My room was exactly how it was when I was younger and how I had left it, luckily I never went through the pink phase, it was yellow and bright, if the sun would come out for more then one minuet. It was a good size room lots of room, the rest of my junk was sent last week bits at a time, it all still lay in their boxes waiting to be sorted and placed into their right places.
Although the house looked small it was quiet spacious inside and had a good sized lounge and kitchen on the ground floor. The stairs were a good size to, and sturdy. I would be able to grab the handrail and not have the fear it might break under my weight.
My alarm finally went off and I got out of bed and ran to the shower before anyone else could steel it. After washing and trying to relax my muscles I dressed in my usual baggy genes and shirt. Pulling my new rain coat out of my cupboard and bag from one of the many boxes I made my way to the stairs.
I looked down and began to slowly descend, gripping the banister and wall for dear life. 'how was I going to do this in school.'
"Bella!" boomed Emmett's voice making me jump violently and slip of the step, I closed my eyes waiting for the impact to come, my heart banging loudly in my head making my body pulse.
The impact never came, instead large arms wound round me and pulled me up in to his chest. Then I realised that the pounding I herd wasn't me it must have been Em, but how did he get to me that fast, I was at the top and he was at the bottom. Must have taken them three at at a time.
"Never do that again." he said in an angry tone, I hated it when he was angry at me for nothing it got me into the whole defence mode and I hated to argue with him.
"I had to walk down stairs on my own at home when you left, I think I can walk by myself."
"Since I went I was worried sick thinking about you and stairs." he said dropping me on the wooden chair in the kitchen, rose placed a plate under my nose and smiled at me.
"Morning." How the... how long has she been here, wait did she even go home. I thought trying to stop my eyes from narrowing. "Eat up." she turned and kissed Emmett quickly on the lips and walked out into the lounge, "Hay I'll see you bot in school I have to pick up Jasper or he's going to turn me to a pile of ashes."
with that the front door opened and shut. Well here goes the first day of the rest of my life, till I can afford to move.
"Come on eat so we're not late." he said taking his car keys off the peg hanging next to the fridge.
Eating quickly I pulled my bag on my shoulder and grabbed my jacket, following Emmett out of the house I looked to the drive. I stopped dead and gapped like a fish.
"What the hell is that monstrosity." was all I said as I looked at a large Wrangler Jeep, the wheels almost bigger then me.
"That is my baby, me and Rose produced it, Bernie." he said with a misty smile that was like he was looking at the beast of a vehicle with awe.
"Bernadett... but rose said no ' I am not getting into a car that is called after a girl'" he made me laugh at his Rosalie impression, it wasn't very good. "so Bernie is so its a uni... bit of both."
I just looked at him as he said the last part, "what am I related to." I muttered making my way to the passenger side of the Jeep. Emmett opened the door and before I could attempt to get in he lifted me easily with one arm and sat me in the seat.
The rain had stopped but the sky was still an angry grey threatening to erupt at any moment. We pulled into the small looking school's parking lot, students were walking to the building in small groups, some looked up as the saw the overly large Jeep pull into the end space whilst others walked on as if they hadn't seen anything.
I opened the door forgetting the long drop, slipping out of the seat I braced myself for the hard ground that would no doubt hurt.
Again it never came, I opened my eyes to look into the most amazing amber eyes, small freckles of deep blue lighting spots in them. I had never seen anything like them before, wait, Rosalie, she had the same eye colour. Swinging me up and round he smiled, the blond hair the same shade as Rosalie and the same pale skin.
"Nice save Jaz." Emmett called out. I looked to the blond boy as he hi fived my brother.
"Bella, this is my twin brother, Jasper" Rose said smiling, I felt my cheeks burn as I said hi to him, my face was no doubt red as a tomato by now.
"It's nice to meet you Bella, Emmett doesn't stop talking about you." he said, all of a sudden I didn't feel embarrassed or anything other then happiness and joy. 'Wow that was weird', I thought.
"Come on Bells we need to pick up you schedule up from the office, we'll see you later, bye babe." kissing Rose he pulled me to the building that looked like the office, I waved to the twins. Emmett kept his arm around my waist, just like he had when we lived together at home. Tightening his grip and lifting me slightly of the ground as we neared the steps to the building.
"Good morning Mrs Cope, my sister Bella here needs her schedule."
"Oh hello Isabella..." said the grandmotherly woman said to me.
"Bella." I said correcting her to the name I preferred.
"Bella... well here there is a map, but from the looks of it your brother will show you around," she smiled at Em sweetly and then at me. "Let me know if you need anything."
"Thanks Mrs C."
"Thank you." I said in a more plight tone then my brother. Who once again lifted me off the floor and seated into one of his arms, with that he walked out into the coolness outside, a dreary sounding moan went off, the bell I thought.
"That's the first bell, you have five minuets to get to first class only, so yeah lets see, English... right this way."
For the first three lessons Emmett met me out side each class room and wrapped his arm around me lifting me when I almost tripped over something on the floors or the stairs, Trig was my next lesson, 'oh the joy', I thought sighing in dread, I hated trig so much, I was in advanced class as well to make it worse.
As Em put me down I walked in and handed my teacher the note I was to get signed.
"Ah so this is the sister of Mr Swan." he smiled at me, "You are in advanced trig, its a shame your brother didn't have much knowledge."
"Hay I'm stood right here." Emmett almost screamed.
"You may go Mr Swan she is safely in class now." at this my face burned as the whole class was watching and having it known to everyone that my brother was seeing me to my classes, I was rather embarrassed.
"Right, Bell's don't leave with out me, it's dinner next." he said with a look like if you leave I will hunt you down and glue you to my side for the rest of the day.
"Right." I muttered quietly, and turned to find an empty seat. I could feel the eyes of every class member on me and my face burned deeper.
"Hi, I'm Mike." Said a tall blond boy who sat to my right at the back of the class, he had the whole I'm a pretty boy thing going on.
"Bella." I said with a small smile trying to be plight.
"So Emmett is your brother?"
"Wow, I mean that guy's huge and your so..." he was unable to finish that sentence as the teacher called for him to listen and leave the new girl alone, this made my already red cheeks flame.
"Hi I'm Jessica," know this girl had more common sence to whisper then speak normally.
"Your in my Spanish and Gov class." she said with a smile.
"Oh," what was I meant to say oh sorry I didn't notice you.
"If you want I could give you the scoop on everything here... oh wait your Emmett's sister," this seemed to make her sad, but why? "he'll help you."
"Em has a one track mind so, he's not much help at times." I said, why oh why was I to nice for my own good, I hated to see people up set.
"Oh great I'll introduce you to everyone later." she stopped as the teacher turned his head and started to speak to the class, she just gave me a smile like a Cheshire cat and shrugged her shoulder's. Oh I could see where this was going, she was going to use me as a way to get popular. Or I could be wrong and she really does want to be friends, we shall see.
As class drew to and end I packed my stuff and stood to go when I felt a hand on my arm. I turned and looked at a girl around my own height.
"I'm Angela, err I was wondering if you needed any help in any of your classes I'd be happy to help you I'm in most of your classes and I know how hard it is to get settled when you move." she smiled shyly, she seemed so sweet and innocent.
"Thanks I may need your help I didn't understand a single thing." I smiled.
"Sure well I'll see you around." she said smiling wider and waved.
"Want to sit with me for lunch." Came the boys voice who said his name was mike. My smile faded and I was about to reply when.
"Bella," Emmett burst through the door with Rosalie, she smiled at me then her eyes narrowed as they reached the boy named Mike.
"Hi Em." I said so glad for his over protectiveness and wanting to take me everywhere.
"Come on I have to introduce you to a few people." he wrapped his arm around me and began to pull me from the class.
"How about another time Mike?" I asked hoping I got his name right.
"Yeah sure." that was when Emmett picked me like a foot ball, my back flat against his chest with his arms wrapped around me and under my knees, Rosalie had my bag and was walking fast next to Emmett, both had glum faces on when I looked up. What's happened my brother wasn't one to be in this mood, unless, something bad must have happened to him.
I would find out later.
We entered the almost packed cafeteria, lucky for me I was in Emmett's arms as I saw all the rip hazards that were calling out for me to trip over them.
"Make way fragile package coming through!" he shouted as people moved out of his way.
"Emmett!" I yelled back slapping his arm making him laugh. We came to atop by a table and I was place back on my own feet.
"Oh."I herd before being pulled in to a tight hug by someone small.
"Alice careful I don't want her to break my dad would kill me." Em said as I looked down, and I thought I was small.
Alice was at least two or three inches smaller them me, her short dark hair was spiked into a cut pixie cut. She was pale like Rose, Jasper and even Emmett seemed to have lost his tan. I only just noticed that.
"Hi Bella I'm Alice, it's so good to finally meet you, Rose we have a new shopping partner." she said jumping up and down on the spot, then all of a sudden she whipped herhead around to me again with a stern look in her face, "you do like shopping don't you?"
"Err, sure?" I said more as a question then an answer.
"Alice stop over powering her, not everyone is a crazed shop-a-holic as you are." came a velvety voice, I turned to it and stopped dead, 'Oh my goodness gracious me.' was all I could think.
