1; The Beginning

"Bella? Bella? Bella?!" said my best friend, Alice, in Spanish today.

"God, What's wrong with you? You've had this dreamy look on your face all class. Were you even paying attention?"

I looked at her and said "Sorry just thinking 'bout Rosalie's party this Friday. I'm so excited."

Alice, Rosalie, Edward, Jasper, Emmett, and Me had been best friends forever, well since we were babies.

Alice, Rosalie, and Me all liked one of the boys.

I liked Edward and we had been going out since the beginning of 10th grade, but I had like him since like 7th grade. Edward was Alice's twin sister.

Rosalie liked Emmett, and I'm pretty sure Emmett like Rosalie, but they were too stubborn to admit there feelings for each other, maybe the party on Friday will get them drunk and they will finally admit it.

Well anyway that leaves Alice and Jasper.

Alice was practically in love with Jasper but for some reason Jasper didn't like her, even though he acted like he did and I'm pretty sure he does. He always talks about her and stares at her.

It's kind of creepy.

Rosalie and Jasper were brother and sister too.

Rosalie and Jasper were holding a graduation party this Friday (tomorrow, 2 weeks before graduation might I add,) and I was so excited and I had a great feeling about it.

The final bell rang and Rosalie, Alice, and Me got ready to go home. We all lived right next to each other.

We walked out of our class and went to go meet up with Edward, Jasper, and Emmett.

As soon as I saw Edward I ran into his arms, rapped mine around his neck, and kissed him.

We walked hand in hand watching as Rosalie and Emmett flirted and Alice talked to Jasper.

As soon as I saw the way Jasper looked at her I turned to Edward and said, "Why doesn't he just admit he likes her?"

Edward looked at me and said "Maybe he's just afraid. I mean graduation's coming up and we're all going separate ways. I guess he just doesn't want to get hurt if Alice leaves."

I thought over that for a minute, and finally responded "I guess that makes sense. But... promise me one thing"


"Promise me that we wont ever be separated. That just because we are going to different colleges and studying different things and moving on to our futures we will never be apart. Promise me that, that wont in any way tear us apart.

He looked at me with a look that said he was hurt I would think of that "I promise. I don't think I would ever have the strength to leave you, ever"

I smiled and leant into to him. We were almost home. Rosalie and Jasper lived in the first house on the street. Alice and Edward lived in the house next to them. I lived next to Alice and Edward, and Emmett lived across the street.

When we got to our street we all said 'Bye' and went our separate ways. Edward usually came over after school but his mom said he couldn't today. I was a little upset but I got over it because he was coming over later.

When I got home I wasn't surprised to not see my dad there, he usually traveled for weeks on end. I was cool with it and not just because I got to stay out as late as I wanted, go anywhere I wanted, and allowed to have people over, and tonight Edward was coming over to 'work on homework'. We would probably just end up eating pizza and watching a movie, and midway through we will start making out.

I went into the kitchen and got a drink, then sat down at the table and tried to finish my homework before Edward got here. I got done my biology and pre-calc homework before he got here, which is quite an accomplishment seeing as I didn't pay attention all day at school.

I heard him knock on the door and got up to go greet him.

I opened the door and there was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen – Edward.

He had messy bronze hair that was so perfect, I wanted to run my fingers through it, with green eyes that I thought could see right to my soul and that crooked smile I loved so much.

He stepped in the doorframe and wrapped his arms around me. "I missed you," he whispered in my ear.

He honestly has no idea what he does to my balance skills because I was positive that if he weren't holding me I would be on the floor right now.

I smiled and said "Well that's weird. I missed you too. Even though I have spent almost all day with you."

He laughed then said "True. But we can't do this in school. Well we could if wanted detention."

Then he put his lips so close to mine, but I new he was teasing me and that he wasn't going to move them any closer, so I closed the distance between us.

I traced my tongue over his bottom lip begging for entrance, which he gladly accepted.

Soon after that we broke apart, and if you ask me way to quickly.

We ordered a pizza and watched 'Twilight', not that we watched it.

At 9:00 he had to go so we got off the couch and we went to the door. When we got there we just stood there and looked into each others eyes. He moved closer and wrapped his arms around my waist. Not a second later my arms were a around his neck pulling him closer.

As soon as I could reach him I pulled his lips against mine. We stayed like that, my lips moving against his, until we were both in a desperate need for air.

Then he kissed me one more time and left.

As he was leaving he said "love you"

I replied "I love you too."

I locked the door and got ready for bed. I got in the shower, and quickly brushed and blow-dried my hair when I got out. I dressed in my shorts and cami then got into bed.

I thought about the weeks to come and everything that was gonna change. In august I was moving away from Forks, Washington to Florida for college, where as Rosalie, Emmett, Alice, and Jasper were all staying here and going to community college.

I didn't know where Edward was going, but I had a feeling it wasn't that close to Florida. Edward wanted to be a doctor, just like his father. I didn't want him to leave me, but I knew that I had to let him go. I couldn't have him ruining his future for me. No matter what.

I can't wait till tomorrow! Rosalie's and Jaspers party is gonna be awesome!
