Hey guys, this is my first fanfiction, so be easy on me. I would also like to give credit to my best friend, Jennifer, who helped me in writing this fanfiction. Her account name is JenniferElizabeth. :D
"Edward, come on, we're going to be late for school!" a voice pierced through my peaceful slumber.
"Ugh..." I said as I opened my useless eyes to the eternal darkness that I have always known.
"Why didn't you wake me earlier then, Alice?" I grumbled through my sleep-induced grogginess.
"I've been trying to for the past 15 minutes, but you're a really heavy sleeper. Now, come on, I laid your clothes out already on the end of your bed. You're wearing a black sweater, relaxed jeans, and some tennis shoes," Alice was as chipper as she could possibly be, a complete opposite for my morning grumpiness.
"You're too good to me, Alice," I sarcastically praised her.
"I know, now, come on, that new girl's supposed to be there today. We've all got something to look forward to," she chirped.
"Why am I supposed to care that there is a new addition to the purgatory that is Forks High?"
"Because I was talking to Chief Swan yesterday and he said she is really nice, smart, and pretty, but she's kind of shy. Now, come on, LET'S GO!" Alice's voice was nearly trembling with ridiculous excitement.
"Fine, fine, I'm coming" I said as I groped the ground next to my bed, searching for my cane. Where did I put that stupid thing?
"Here you go. Now, be downstairs in 10 minutes or you're walking!" Alice threatened.
I rose from my bed, using my cane, and made my way to my bathroom, careful not to trip on anything.
After I finished getting ready, Alice drove to her boyfriend Jasper's house to pick him up so he too could be dragged off to hell with us.
"Hey, Eddie, you ready for school? I can't wait to meet Isabella Swan!" exclaimed Jasper. Damn, what is so special about this girl?
"I'm so pumped too, Jasper! I bet we'll be best friends! But first, we need to get to school on time," Alice trilled as she floored the gas pedal.
We arrived at the school with only seconds to spare until the second bell rang so I had to run as fast as a blind man can when it happened. I collided with a person and fell right on my back, my books scattering in the process.
"I am so sorry, I'm such a klutz," said the one I collided into. I didn't know who this girl was, but she had the most beautiful voice I had ever heard.
"Uhh…no, it's okay, this kind of stuff happens to me all the time."
Could she really be so unobservant that she didn't notice? Surely not, I mean, I'm holding my cane, I'm sure she's noticed. She just wanted to make me feel better about the situation by letting me think that I've convinced her I can usually fend for myself. Either way, I had to make sure she understood.
"Oh, no!" The girl's lilting voice burst into my thoughts. "I'm going to be late for class! I'm sorry, but I've got to get to English."
"Wait, hang on, who are you?" My inquiry was answered by nothing but silence. All I heard was the closing of the door to the English department.
I sighed. Well, this would give me something to think about in Calculus.
Oh my god, it's my first day at Forks High and I'm already going to get my first tardy, definitely not a good first impression. So, here I am running to what I presume is the English department. That's when it happened. I ran around a corner only to run into one of the most handsome guys I have ever seen! Of course, it has to happen when I'm late, AND now he's going to think I'm a complete klutz! Which I am, but still, he doesn't have to know it!
"I am so sorry, I'm such a klutz," I apologized awkwardly to the most gorgeous man I had ever seen.
"Uhh…no, it's okay, this kind of stuff happens to me all the time." That confused me, how could a guy this handsome also be a klutz? Besides, I'm the one who ran into HIM. But on the other hand, the way he said it gave me a feeling that he meant something completely different.
"Really?" How could he be a klutz? He held himself so gracefully. But, as I said this, he gave me the most perplexed look I have ever seen as if to say: Did you really just ask that? That's when I noticed what time it was, I only had two more minutes to get to English before I was late.
"Oh, no! I'm going to be late for class! I'm sorry, but I've got to get to English." I yelled over my shoulder as I ran off to class. I supposed the identity of this mystery handsome guy would just have to wait. I hoped English would go by fast.
Once I ran into English, I was greeted by my new English teacher, Mr. Mason.
"Why, hello, you must be the new student, Isabella Swan?" He asked, but didn't wait for me to answer. "Perhaps next time, you can try to be on time? But since it's your first day, I suppose I'll let it slide. Please sit next to the window, by Alice Cullen, and she can show you where to get your textbook and explain the part of the curriculum we are on. I hope your day will be better than your morning has been."
"Yes, sir," I answered dejectedly. Could my first day get any worse? I walked over to the seat that he had indicated and saw who I was sitting next to. Alice Cullen was a short, willowy figure with a short haircut who had the grace of a dancer that was evident even as she was sitting. She had such an ethereal beauty that she threw all the surrounding students into the darkness, and she did it without doing anything. All I could think of was how gorgeous she was, like the guy I had run into outside the school. If there were any more people like them at this school, I'd soon be developing a complex. I really hoped she would be nice.
"Hey, my name is Alice Cullen. You must be Isabella!" squeaked that over-ecstatic pixie. Oh, wow, no one should be that perky in the morning. Her energy was almost palpable. It spilled over as she bounced in her seat, waiting for me to respond.
Oh, wait, I needed to respond…"Umm…yes. But I really do prefer Bella…"
"Oh, Bella! That's even prettier!" She babbled enthusiastically. "Here's your book! Where are you sitting at lunch?"
"Oh, I hadn't really planned to sit anywhere." I replied slowly. It was really hard to not catch her energy sitting by her.
"Great! That's means you can sit with us!" She exclaimed.
"Us?" I inquired curiously. Hopefully no one else that's as perky as her.
"My boyfriend, Jasper Hale; his sister, Rosalie Hale; her boyfriend, Emmett McCarthy; and my twin brother, Edward Cullen," She explained. "It'll be fun!"
Well, I certainly wasn't going to refuse a place to sit at lunch. Besides, maybe they'd know who the mystery guy I ran into in the parking lot was.
"Sure, that sounds pretty good," I replied.
I wonder what those other people will be like…
Hey guys, me again. Well, I think this chapter turned out pretty good, what do you think? I'm currently in the process of writing chapter 2, but that won't take long. If you have any ideas on events that should happen later on, message me and I might use them and give credit to you, of course! Cause honestly, I don't have a great imagination, lol.
