Tardiness is unacceptable!
You know I am probably the clumsiest dancer you will ever meet. I mean hey I can do a perfect triple-pirouette into a grand jete but walking across a flat surface is a whole different story.
I go to Dartmouth University with my two best friends Alice Brandon and Rosalie Hale. We have been best friends since preschool when Rosalie came up to me and asked me if I wanted to finger paint with her and Alice. Their boyfriends are Emmett McCarthy and Jasper Hale. Jasper is Rosalie's twin and is going out with Alice. They are the perfect couple. They always seem so in tune with each other and Jasper is the only one who can calm Alice down.
Alice is like a little hyper pixie with short black hair and an addiction to shopping. I mean that girl is always shopping, and I hate shopping. But she makes me go with her anyway, and insists on dressing me up like her own personal Barbie doll. Jasper is usually the one to save me from Alice's torture because she only listens to him.
Rosalie is going out with Emmett. There are only two words to describe Emmett and that is big bear. I mean he is huge! A lot of people are scared of him at first because of his size but once you get to know him, he is just a big goof ball who makes fun of me for falling down.
Rosalie is gorgeous. If you just looked at her you would think she is a model with her long shiny blond hair and tan legs. But what everyone doesn't know at first look is that Rosalie is obsessed with fixing cars. She absolutely loves to work on them and make them go faster. We all have a weak spot for driving fast.
And sadly I am with no one. Yeah and I know being single is said to be good and I really don't mind. But when I look at Alice's and Rosalie's relationships I just can't help and want that to.
Anyway, Emmett and Jasper are both on the football team, and Alice and Rosalie are on the dance team with me, and speaking of dance if I don't hurry I am going to be late for practice. Again. I know I am the captain and everything but I get sidetracked very easily.
I sprint across the quad nearly escaping falling twice but I finally make it to the locker room to see the girls changing. I see Alice and Rosalie in the middle lockers as they look up to see who has entered. Once they see me Rosalie rolls her eyes and continues pulling on her dark brown dance pants. Alice shacks her head at me while I walk toward them.
"Oh don't look at me like that Alice. I made it here in time," I say while looking at my perky pixy like friend.
"Oh Bella, you know what Mrs. T. said, tardiness is unexcitable, I will not allow my girls to be undisciplined, " she says while doing a hilarious impression of our Coach yelling at us.
We all burst out laughing and Rosalie says "Bella I think we are going to have to put like five alarms on your phone because that will be the only way you get here on time." I roll my eyes at her and start pulling on my black and pink dance shorts that say dancer on the butt. I then put on a hot pink sports bra and a black top with pink writing that says "When in doubt rond de jambe!" (This is a little joke with my dance company) I then proceed to put my long brown hair in a high ponytail.
"Come on Bella, your going to make us all late if we don't get into the gym in like 30 secs," Alice says.
"Ok, ok, let's go," and then we sprint of the locker room in hopes of not being late.
Practice was brutal. Not only did Lauren and Jessica forget the combination, but they also insisted on talking on their phones, which Mrs.T had to see, and makes us all do 100 push ups on top of the 3 hours of dancing we just did. My legs feel like jell-o, but in a good way.
I am just furious at those two for not getting the routine down. I mean Mrs. T gave the one of the most important parts of the dance in hopes of them concentrating on it, but no they are to busy to learn the routine. Well I would be to if I was fucking like every guy on the football team. There is only one word to describe Jessica and Lauren, and that is sluts. I don't even know how they made it on the team. But Mrs. T was so upset because we are performing this routine at the homecoming game this Friday. Alice said she had a feeling that she was going to give the part to us, but I don't know how she knows this. But Alice is usually right about these things.
I am walking back to my dorm room, which is all on the way on the other side of campus. It is so cold out right now and I am still in my dance clothes. CRAP! I just tripped over a crack in the sidewalk and am falling toward the floor. I close my eyes and brace myself for what is to come but it doesn't. I open my eyes and see two strong, tan arms encircled around my waist. I look up into a piercing set of green eyes. I feel like in that moment he can see my soul. My every wish, hope, and dream was now somehow his. He lifts me gently to my feet and to soon does he let go of me.
"Are you ok," he asks in a soft, velvet voice.
"Yyyeah" I stutter. I can't take my eyes of his and I feel like I can't breath. Wait I'm not breathing. Take a breath you idiot! I take in a sharp, jagged breath, and he chuckles.
"You should watch were you step, you could really have hurt yourself," he says with a look of concern in those gorgeous green eyes.
"Iii wiiil. Thanks for catching me," I say as I pick up my pink and black dance bag, trying desperately to shield my blushing face with my hair.
"No problem, well I have to get to football practice. See you around Bella!"
"Kkk, bye Edward," I say as I watch his retreating form. CRAP! OMG, that was Edward Freaking Cullen. I can't believe I stuttered. I am the captain of the freaking dance team. Why can't I ever say anything right in front of him? Oh yeah because he is Edward FREAKING Cullen. The captain of the football team, who happens to be the star quarter back for Dartmouth University and is a cross between an Abercrombie model and a Greek god! Oh god for once I whish I would not act like a total loser in front of him.
My side begins to vibrate and I take out my phone to see I have a new text from Alice. It says,
"OMG! You will never guess what Emmett told Rosalie about. It has something to do with you and…
-So what is the text about and does it have to something to do with a green eye cutie? This is my first fanfiction so review and tell me what you think!
