New story for a challenge, it lookes interesting. So I'm giving it a try. Tell me what you think DISCLAIMER I OWN NOTHING STEPHENIE MEYER DOES!
I was eight when my world came crashing down. Apparently I was oblivious. So I was eight but I could've been more observant, payed more attention. I should have. I didn't though so here I am. In my own personal hell or you could call it Forks, WA. Such a great place it was. No one needs sunshine and really why be odd with brown tree trunks. No, everything is supposed to be green. Sorry for the rant, I should probably continue telling you about this amazing place and why I'm here.
My parents had decided to get divorced. They said it was for the better. Today I can kind of understand this. It's like one of those times when you have to look back on it to catch the smaller details. Those smaller details are usually the impostant ones. Looking back I can see the fights they tried to hide. My mom went to Phoenix and my dad stayed in Forks. At this point in the story you're probably wondering why I'm here. Why didn't I just go and live with my mom? Well, I did. I tried that for two years. It didn't work out well. Let's just leave it at that.
So at the age of ten, I came back to Forks. There are three reasons why I've stayed here. One, it's better than living with my mom. Two, I love my dad and I would miss him. My last reason for staying here, the Cullens. They have been my best friends since I moved back.
It was the first day of fifth grade. I moved back here in the summer that way I could start school with everyone else. I went to my homeroom and one girl waved and told me to sit by her. I laugh at that now. I should have known from that moment that she would always be like that.
"Hi, I'm Alice." She said smiling.
"Hi, I'm Bella." I said.
"You're new here." She didn't ask, just stated it.
"How did you know." I asked looking at her confused.
"I pay attention. I didn't recognize you." She said. She was still smiling.
"Wow." I simply couldn't think of anything else to say.
"It's a small school, not like Phoenix." She said and when she did my mouth dropped.
"How did you know?" I asked her.
"Just guessed?" she sounded like she was asking. She had a lot of those guesses. Her intuition was amazing even to this day.
"Would you like to sit with me at lunch?" she asked as it got closer to lunchtime.
"Uh I guess." I said. I was always a little shy. I was also surprised. I seemed to be making a friend.
"Good." She said. Then the bell rang and it was lunchtime.
That day I met the rest of her family. They were all nice. She had two biological brothers and two adopted siblings. Edward was ten and her twin. They looked nothing alike. So we were all ten. Emmett was eleven and in sixth grade. Along with her two adopted siblings. Jasper and Rosalie were twins as well. They too were eleven.
We quickly became fast friends. As close as I was to Alice and the rest of them, I was closest to Edward. We had similar tastes in everything. Alice would always tell me I should have been his twin instead. We were prety much inseperable. Trust me our parents tried. I never wanted to leave his house and he never wanted to leave mine. My dad would have to drag me out of there when he wanted me home. It was the same way with Edward. So I guess it was a good thing we lived right next to each other.
I shared everything with Edward. When we were older I told him why I left my mom's. He listened to me and comforted me when I started to cry. No matter what my problem was he was always there. I could and still can count on him for anything.
Edward, Alice, and I were now juniors. Making Emmett, Jasper, and Rosalie seniors. Right around our freshmen year everyone paired off. Jasper and Alice, Rosalie and Emmett were now couples. It wasn't odd to us. They weren't really siblings. Others in our school weren't so accepting. They didn't let that stop them or bother them. Carlisle and Esme understood. They were so cool.
I should get back to the present now. We were now in lunch, ironic that I thought about all of this in lunch. Alice was sitting by Jasper, as usual. Then it was Rosalie on Alice's other side, followed by Emmett, Edward, and last was me. The couples were being all couple-y.
"You know it's times like this when I really wish I had a family like yours." I said to Edward.
"Really? Why is that?" he asked.
"Because, they get adopted and end up finding the 'love of their life'." I say and by now he knows I'm mocking them.
"Or you could be like me and be the odd duck out." He said smiling.
"You're mocking us again aren't you?" Alice turned and looked at me.
"Me? Never!" I say in mock outrage.
"Go ahead mock all you want. Trust me when I say in a few months this will be you." she says.
"Not again Alice." I groan.
"It's just a guess no need to get so upset." She says in an innocent tone.
"Yes, just like all the other 'guesses'." I say. As I mentioned earlier, all of her guesses came true.
"I can't help it. I'm a good guesser." She gives me a wide smile.
"Fine. Whatever you say Alice. If in a few months that's me, you can mock me non stop and take me shopping with no complaints." I said to her. The smile she had on her face would scare little children.
"Bella you know better than to bet against Alice." Emmett said while laughing.
"I know but that is so wrong. I could never be like that. Edward shall we show them what they look like to outsiders?" I asked turning to Edward.
"We shall." He said smiling back at me.
"Action!" Emmett yelled. Everyone else started to laugh.
"Oh I couldn't live without you. I love you so much." I said in a mock girly voice.
"I would be nothing without you. My life would cease to exist if you weren't here." he replied back with a smile on his face.
"Now we make goo goo eyes at each other until someone yells and gets our attention." I say and start staring at Edward. He is laughing but staring right back.
"And cut!" Emmett yells. Edward and I countinue to stare at each other, just to prove a point.
"Alright we get it." Rosalie says.
"Come on guys. We're not that bad." Jasper adds in.
"Enough!" Alice yells.
"I'm sorry were you saying something? I was to busy looking at the love of my life." I continue to mock. I can't help it. It's a disease I swear.
"I didn't hear anything." Edward loves to mock just as much as I do.
"I'm going to let this go for two reasons." Alice says.
"And why is that?" I ask still laughing.
"Right to mock and shopping with no complaint." She is now smiling smugly. I am so going to prove her wrong.
"We'll see. When I win, I don't want to be dragged shopping for two months. That includes no Bella barbie." I say smirking.
"Fine, if you win. Witnesses, you have all heard this?" she asks looking around the table. Everyone nods.
"I have a feeling you shouldn't have done that." Edward whispers in my ear.
"I'll be fine." I whisper to him.
"Whatever you say." He whispered back. I'm going to win this bet. There is no way I can lose.
