Chapter 1: The Invitation
Bella sighed as she sat in the classroom of her new school since she had moved to Forks to live with her dad since her mom and step dad moved to Jacksonville, Florida. She pushed a strand of hair behind her ear when an envelope was tossed in front of her on her desk. She looked around to see where it was coming from and saw a few girls in the back waving. She opened the envelope to see that it was an invitation.
Celebrate the New Year at Jessica Stanley's House
Friday, January 9, at 6:45 PM-3:00 AM
Bella bit her lower lip, she didn't want to be rude to these girls, she was so new to this school. She looked over her shoulder and nodded. The girls smiled and continued with their chit-chat.
During the party that night, Bella was able to convince Charlie to let her go out, promising to be back before midnight. She walked around the place when she bumped into Jessica. "Hi! Bella right?" she asked.
"Yeah, that's me," she replied.
"I'm Jessica and this is Angela, welcome to Forks," Jessica told her.
"Thanks," Bella answered.
The girls walked away and someone stood by her. "So, where did you move from?" A velvety voice asked. Bella looked up and the person standing next to her took her breath away. He smiled at her. "Edward Cullen," he informed.
"Bella Swan," she answered.
"Edward!" A voice giggled.
Edward rolled his eyes slightly, ignoring the call. "Looks like your girlfriend is calling," Bella commented.
"She's not my girlfriend, trust me that won't be the first "Edward" you'll hear tonight," he answered.
"Ah am I standing next to the most popular guy in school or something?" She quipped.
"Unwanted popularity," he replied.
She gave him a quizzical look. "Father's a doctor, a very successful doctor at that, think on that one," he said with a small grin. Bella laughed slightly.
"Edward!" Another voice called.
"Okay now that one I do have to answer, that would be my sister," he informed.
"Okay," she answered.
"Welcome to Forks," he told her before walking away.
She nodded and watched him walk away.
Later that night, Bella was now waiting for it to be midnight so she can go home. "Hey, you look thirsty," a guy commented. Bella looked up at him.
"Uh…a bit," she answered.
He handed her a cup. "Here, this should make you feel better," he told her.
"Um…thanks," she answered.
She started to take a drink of the soda in a cup, the guy was standing really close.
Later that night, Edward was talking with his sister, Alice, when he suddenly saw the new girl he had just met stumbling around the party. "What's wrong with her?" A kid asked. He saw James walk over to her, whispering something to her.
"James, what the hell did you do?" He asked.
"Gave her something to relax," James replied with a grin.
"I don't feel well," Bella groaned.
Edward shoved James backwards and picked Bella up. "Come on, I'm taking you home," he told her.
Edward got her outside. "Edward, I'm going to be sick," she groaned. Edward moved her to the side and set her down. She bent forward and threw up.
"Is anyone at home, Bella?" He asked.
"M--My dad's in bed," she replied, holding her stomach.
"Where's your jacket?" He asked.
"My truck," she replied.
Edward walked over and grabbed her jacket from the back of the truck. He placed it over her shoulders and lifted her up again. He put her in his car and drove her home, leaving a pissed of James behind.
He pulled up to Bella's house and carried her inside. "I'm sorry about your car," she told him.
"Don't worry about the car," he answered.
He climbed the stairs quietly so he wouldn't wake her dad. He carefully laid her down on her bed, placing a wastebasket by her bed and left the room.
