Chapter 1

I sat at my table, eating breakfast and daydreaming away when I looked at my clock.

Aw, dang it. I was late. It was already 6:15. My coffee shop, Twilight Corner, opens at 6. I put my black worn out boots on and trudged downstairs. There was already a bunch of people out there!

I founded Twilight Corner last year, when I turned 20. It was kind of a book shop and a coffee shop in one. It was one big room and one side was the coffee shop and the other side had shelves with books stacked on them. Then around the door was tables so people could eat and read. My only rule was not get food on or in the books! Which happened often…

"What were you doing?" Jacob Black joked once I finally got the door unlocked and open.

"Yea, Bella! I nearly froze my butt and lips off, would you like to warm them up?" Mike Newton asked.

"One more word Mike and your out!" A voice hissed behind him, James. "Bella!" James exclaimed and came over to kiss me. "I missed you." he said.

"I missed you too. Even though it was only one night." I said and moved to around the corner.

James beat me. Every single night. I met James at a club, where he saved me from that vile Mike Newton from trying to touch me and bring me home with him. I liked him, a lot and the first couple of months he showered me with gifts and love but then some guy looked at me in that way and James beat me senseless. We've been together for 9 months.

"The usual?" I asked Cole.

"Yes and Bella?" he asked.

"Hm?" I said, turning to the coffee machine and getting it ready for his coffee.

"Your doing alright, I mean your good?" he asked, looking at the long bruise I had running along the inside of my arm as I handed him his coffee.

"I'm fine." I said, almost snapped but I didn't want to be rude.

"That's good." he said, though he didn't look convinced, and he paid me. I watched him go to the health section for the books, grab one, and sit down at his usual table.

"Ahem." James said coming behind me and putting his arms around my waist.

"Yes?" I asked.

"Do you like Cole?"

I snorted. "Let me check…no." I said and laughed. I had to be happy with him in public. People were already thinking things…


I slipped out of his arms. "Are you going to help me today?" I asked.

"I always help, Bella." he said and rolled his eyes.

The stove beeped and I took out the rolls.

"Hello." a voice said at that same moment. I whirled around and there was a Greek God standing there. I could see his abs through his t-shirt.

"Uh..hi." I stuttered and his smiled. His bronze hair was messy and I wanted to run my hand through it.

He stuck out his hand, "I'm Edward."

I grabbed it and a shock of electricity went through my body, "Bella, I own this small coffee shop."

"And I'm James, her boyfriend," James said, coming up behind.

"James." Edward nodded.

"What would you like?" I asked.

"I heard you have the best hot chocolate in New York." Edward said.

I laughed, " I have heard that too."

"Okay, I'll take a cup. I'm not much of a coffee drinker."

"One cup it is." I said getting his hot chocolate together. When I handed him his cup our fingers brushed and the electricity shocked me again.

It was finally five and I locked up.

"Bella." James snarled.

"Please, James, don't." I said, scared. James came up to me and gripped my arms and started shacking me.

"STOP!" I cried out and he shook me harder.

"Are you cheating on me?" he growled.

"NO! Who would I cheat on you with?"

"Cole." He slapped my face. "Jacob." Another slap. "Edward." Two slaps.

"NO!" I screeched.

He grabbed my hair and pulled. I screamed out in agony. His hand moved from my hair to grip my jaw. He kissed me roughly and smacked my head against the table next to us.

I blacked out.

When I came too I was in bed and James was next to me. It was Sunday so I had the day off. I got up but James suddenly grabbed me and pulled me to him.

"Oh, God, Bella. I'm so sorry, I was drunk and…and… I don't know what came over me…" he stopped and immediately kissed me. I kissed him back, I loved James, I had to accept him for who he was.

Well I hope you liked it and PLEASE review!
