POV: Bella, Edward (I may use other POV in other chapters but for now, just E&B)
Fantastic. It was sunny out again. You'd think that in the wettest town in the United States wouldn't be sunny for three days straight. I didn't care that I had to miss school, I mean, I'd been though my junior year of high school countless times, and I knew all the information like the back of my hand. I actually probably new the subjects better than the teachers that taught them did.
The only reason I didn't enjoy these sunny days was mostly due to the fact that my parents, Carlisle and Esme, made my brothers and sisters and I stay in the house or just go hunting. I hated staying in, but my parents said that if I were to leave the house, I had to stay on the property, that is, unless I was hunting.
They came up with that rule last summer when my brothers, Emmett and Jasper, were playing football in the yard on an unusually sunny day. Emmett decided to be a show off, and threw the football with all his strength over the trees that shielded our house, and all the way to the highway. Jasper had refused to retrieve the ball and stomped back in the house. Emmett decided that he didn't want to lose his good football, and ran to the highway to fetch the ball.
My sister Alice, who has the power to see into the future, saw Emmett basically jumping out in front of a human driving a car without even thinking and sparkling right in front of a human.
I know…what a jackass.
Luckily, Alice had seen this before he had even gotten to the ball so she raced out of the house at vampire speed, and stopped him before he exposed us all. Thank god.
The incident resulted in all of us not being allowed to leave the property during the Sunny days unless we hunted. For a while, Esme wouldn't even allow us to go outside without another family member, but Carlisle had quickly put an end to that rule. Again, thank god.
I sat on the leather couch in my room looking outside the window, resenting Emmett, when I heard Alice's voice downstairs in the kitchen as clear as if she were sitting next to me.
"Oh!" she said in her high alto voice, she seemed a little excited.
"Did you have a vision, Alice?" Jasper asked, sounding bored. Alice was always having visions; it was no surprise to him, or any of us for that matter, that she had one.
"Yes!" she said softly. "We will be able to go back to school tomorrow."
I sighed and stood up from the couch and flew down the stairs and into the kitchen. Alice and Jasper barely looked up at me when I entered the room.
"Good. I'm sick of being stuck in this house for hours on end," I said sitting down in a chair at the kitchen table we rarely used. Vampires didn't have to eat; we just had to have props in case a human came over.
Alice danced over to me with a smile on her face. She had to be the happiest vampire I had ever seen, I almost couldn't help but smile at her, almost.
"We have a new student at school as well," she said as if it was the most exciting news.
She had a fascination with humans for some reason. Of course, she avoided them like the rest of us to protect our family, but she loved watching them. Seeing them do all their little human things. I think it had to do with the fact that she couldn't remember life before she had been turned into a vampire. At times, I envied her for not being able to remember. She didn't have to deal with the pain of memories.
I could remember my parents, Charlie and Renee Swan, before they died. Carlisle and Esme weren't my actual parents; Carlisle had been the one to find me as a newborn vampire and made into what I was and raised me to not be a monster and drink human blood but to survive off of animal blood. I was the last to be added to our family. We eventually became a coven of seven: Carlisle, Esme, Rosalie, Emmett, Jasper, Alice, and me. Once Esme had been changed, she became Carlisle's wife, and eventually became a mother figure to me. Rosalie was changed after Esme, and became my sister and a second mother figure to me. She found Emmett while she was hunting; he had been attacked by a bear and was close to dead but she brought him back to Carlisle and had him changed. Emmett and Rose fell in love. Alice and Jasper found us, they were lovers too, and joined the family and the vegetarian lifestyle. I came next, completing our coven.
I loved them all dearly like my family but I always felt like a 3rd wheel to everyone since I didn't have anyone to love but I would never leave them. I couldn't loose my family again.
I shuddered thinking back to Charlie and Renee; I tried to repress my blurry human memories as best as I could for my own sanity. Most of the time I was successful.
"Are you okay, Bella?" Alice asked me, pulling me away from my thoughts. I was thankful for it.
"Yeah, I'm fine," I replied remembering she was telling me about a new student which I could care less about, but Alice seemed so excited and like she wanted to talk to me about this student. I decided to be nice and ask her more about it.
"So, a new student? What's this one like?" I asked trying to sound interested. I guess I failed since Alice rolled her eyes at me.
"I know you don't care about humans, but I find them fascinating!" Alice said. She was annoyed with my act of caring.
"Sorry, Alice, but humans don't intrigue me as much as they do you, but you can tell me. I can pretend to like them as much as you do," I said to her with a small smile.
She looked at me for a moment; she was a small vampire with delicate features and short spiky hair. Too me, she looked like a pixie, but I knew her better and knew that she could be anything but an adorable fairy. Her lips curled up in a slight smile, she had decided to talk about this human. I almost rolled my eyes, almost, but I knew better than to anger Alice, like I said, she was no adorable fairy. She could be the devil.
"Well, he started a few days ago, he moved here from Chicago," she said, considering what else she should say that would hold my attention.
I almost groaned, fantastic, like we didn't have enough hormonal teenage boys in Fork's, Washington. They would always drool over Alice, Rose, and I because of our 'Beauty'. We were only so beautiful to attract our prey. At least Alice and Rose were beautiful, I never considered myself that way.
"He's very good looking, at least in my opinion," Alice began. "All the girls are trying to get his attention but he doesn't seem to notice them."
"Well, maybe he's gay," I said with a shrug. Alice laughed.
Moments later, Rosalie and Emmett emerged in the kitchen and sat down at the table with Alice and me. Jasper remained at the counter, he was reading a magazine about cars but looked up to nod at Emmett. I rolled my eyes; it was a human habit that the boys had picked up. I hated it. It was such a stupid way to acknowledge someone. They knew that it annoyed me, and decided it would be fun to do this whenever I was in the room. They often exaggerated the movement.
"Come on, Bella! You know you wish you could be as gangster as Jasper and I," Emmett said chuckling. I ignored him. Rose and Alice did as well.
"So what this I hear about a new student?" Rose asked. She enjoyed attention, we all knew that. She was probably plotting to wear an extremely revealing outfit to have the new guy drool over. She was, after all, the most beautiful vampire in existence. It seemed today I would be doing a lot of eye rolling.
Over the next ten minutes we listened to Alice blabber on about this new guy, whom I learned was named Edward Masen. She kept mentioning the fact that he was from Chicago, and that she would love to go shopping there. I held back a wince. I knew that now that Alice had the idea of shopping in her head, there was no stopping a shopping trip to Chicago now. Oh, how I loathed shopping.
"What grade is he in?" Jasper asked, Alice had not yet answered that question.
"He's a junior," she replied. " But he's really smart, so he's taking some senior classes."
"Will Em and I have classes with him?" Rose asked, She and Emmett were posing as seniors for the millionth time it seemed.
Alice nodded, "We all will."
I looked over at Emmett who was smirking. He was probably plotting a joke on the new kid. I could almost see his plans running through his mind.
My mom said Forks rained all the time, yet for three days straight, not a drop from the sky. I was starting to think my mother was lying to me about it, but sure enough my fourth day of school, it was raining cats and dogs.
I frowned at the sky as I ate my breakfast with my father. I didn't have much in common with my dad. He was a very serious man and we didn't really talk much. The only thing we did have in common were our name, Edward, since I had been named after him and our compassion to do what we loved. In his case, it was running the business he own; a medical company. I, on the other hand, was always into science and a deep thinker. He was straight to the point.
This morning was like any other morning, my father and I avoiding eye contact so we didn't have to make conversation, and my mother running around the kitchen looking for her keys; she was a nurse at the hospital and she was starting today.
By the time I was finished with my cereal, my mom had located her keys on top of the refrigerator of all places, and was kissing my father and me on the cheek.
"I hope you have a great first day, Elizabeth. I know it will be great," my father said, giving my mother a reassuring smile.
"Thanks, Ed," she said before waving to us both and disappearing out into the monsoon outside.
My father left shortly after, just mumbling a goodbye and leaving.
I had twenty-five minutes before I had to leave for school, and I was going to take advantage of that time and love every minute of being warm and dry before suffering through being drenched the rest of the day.
I flopped down onto the couch and turned on the TV. The only thing on that was remotely interesting was the news. I wasn't one to watch much of the news; it was too depressing, but it was ten times better than watching Spongebob Squarepants. I shuddered at just thinking at the sound of his voice. It was like nails on a chalkboard.
The news turned into the local forecast that almost made me throw a fit. It showed thirteen days of rain. That was almost two weeks without sun. I hoped to god that the weather women was wrong before I looked at the clock above the TV and saw it was time to go to school.
I sighed as I got up and threw on a jacket – I would need it today. I opened the door and looked out into the streams of water that were falling from the sky and frowned. This was going to be a great day, I thought to myself as I locked the door and made a run to my silver Volvo parked at the curb. I jumped in the drivers seat, put the key in the ignition and drove off.
There was almost not traffic on my way to school; one of the only perks of Forks. I made it to school twenty minutes before the bell was supposed to ring. The parking lot was hardly full, so I got a fantastic spot up front. I turned off my car and threw my keys in my pocket and looked around. I frowned as I saw Jessica Stanley approaching my car. She had been basically throwing herself at me the last three days, and she just couldn't get the picture that I wasn't interested in her. She was incredibly vapid and shallow and had hardly any intelligence in her at all. She was definantly not my type.
She tapped my window and I forced a smile as I opened my door. This day just keeps getting worse.
"Hello Jessica," I said as politely as I could.
"Hey Edward! Care to walk me to class?" she asked flirtatiously moving closer to me.
Oh shit. I thought to myself and tried to keep a smile on my face.
"Uh, sure," I responded pulling up my hood. It wasn't raining as hard as it had been when I woke up, but it was still enough to want me to cover myself. It never rained this much in Chicago.
Jessica smiled at me. She looked as if she had just won a new car. I rolled my eyes when she wasn't looking and began walking with her on the sidewalk. She started talking, and I began ignoring and looking at my shoes when I heard a car screeching behind us. I spun around at the noise and saw a sleek BMW flying through the parking lot, almost hitting two freshmen and pulling into a spot up front.
"Ugh, there back," Jessica muttered in an irritated tone. I glanced at her and she was staring at the black car with disgust then looked back over at the car myself where I saw an extremely beautiful blonde hair girl climb out of drivers seat. She pulled out an umbrella, popping it open and holding it above her head. A few moments later, an extremely tall, muscular, dark haired guy climbed out. The blonde girl walked over to him and shielded him from the rain with the umbrella.
"Who are they?" I asked, glancing over at Jessica who was still scowling at the blonde girl before turning her attention to me.
"That blonde girl," she said softly. "That's Rosalie Hale. That guy with her, his name is Emmett Cullen."
I almost laughed at how Jessica said their names with disgust as I turned back to the very good-looking couple by the black car. I noticed the back doors of the car opening and a tall blonde man stepped out and held his hand out for a small girl with short spiky black hair. She grabbed his hand and stepped out holding an umbrella like Rosalie, opened it and held it above the blonde guy and her heads and closed the door.
Without me needing to ask, Jessica said, "That's Jasper Hale, Rosalie's twin brother. That girl holding his hand is Alice Cullen. They all live together. Isn't that weird? I mean the ones that are dating aren't related, but Carlisle and Esme Cullen adopted them all. Anyway, lets go."
I looked back over at the Cullen-Hale family and noticed someone else climbing out of the back seat of the car.
"Wait, who is that?" I asked as a beautiful dark haired girl came into view.
Jessica glanced over and rolled her eyes, "That's Bella Cullen, she's not related to any of them she was just adopted by Carlisle and Esme. She's a bitch; you don't want to cross paths with her. Can we go now? I don't want to be late because we were staring at a bunch of freaks."
I sighed and looked one more time at the strange family. They were now making their way toward us to get to class, I assumed. Jessica tugged on the sleeve of my shirt.
"Come on!" She whined, tugging harder on my shirtsleeve.
"Alright, alright, let's get to class," I mutter, shrugging away from Jessica's hand and heading off to class.
We arrived at school with only minutes to spare, and right when we parked I heard the annoying voice of Jessica Stanley taking about my family with an unfamiliar male voice.
Rosalie was already out of the car; I knew she heard her because she shot me a smirk. She knew how much I despised Jessica.
Jasper sensed my hatred and used his gift of manipulating emotions on me to calm me down. I glared at him before he climbed out of the car. For once I just wanted to give in to my hatred for Jessica and do her in. Of course, I knew I couldn't do that to my family.
I climbed out of the car and tried not to look at Jessica. I knew if I saw her face I would want to attack her so instead I examined my shoes. I groaned. Alice had made me wear heels. That only made me more frustrated.
"Bella, come on," Rosalie said softly. She, Emmett, Jasper, and Alice had already started walking toward the building.
"I'm coming," I replied. I noticed Jessica pulling on the unfamiliar guys arm while looking at me with pure fear and hate. I produced the biggest death glare I could and flashed it at her as she and the guy began walking into the building.
Lunch couldn't come soon enough. Every class I didn't have any of my family members in was a bore and I only had one class with Alice altogether and she was my best friend. I may have to stop in the office after lunch and see if Mrs. Cope, the secretary, could change that.
I left my English class happily as I noticed Alice and Jasper waiting outside my room.
"Hello Bella. Have you had a good day so far?" Alice asked a big smile on her face. She was holding hands with Jasper who looked like he was in a great deal of pain. He was the newest to join the vegetarian lifestyle so it was still difficult for him to be around so many people.
"I suppose." I said softly looking around at the people avoiding us at all costs. It was only natural for them to do so but it still made me chuckle a bit.
"Shall we go to lunch then?" Alice asked looking from me to Jasper.
I smiled and nodded and we headed for the cafeteria. On the way we passed Emmett and Rosalie who were waiting by a drinking fountain for us.
"We have been waiting forever! I'm starving!" Emmett joked, we had to pretend to eat to keep up the charade of being humans. If we did eat anything, we would just have to barf it up later...it was quite annoying.
Rose playfully punched Emmett in the shoulder then took their places in front of Jasper and Alice as we made our way to the cafeteria. For some reason we were like a pack, Rose and Emmett always in the front, Jasper and Alice in the middle, and little old me in the back. I didn't mind at all; I hated being the center of attention and Rose and Em loved it, so it only made sense that they would lead the way. We walked straight into the lunch line, grabbing random bits of food. Oh goodie! It's macaroni and cheese day! I thought to myself sarcastically as i picked up a cup of pudding and a side of french fries. Disgusting.
We paid for our food and emerged from the lunch line. I watched as Rose and Emmett danced across the cafeteria. They were so graceful. Even Emmett and he was huge. I knew i was graceful, it was all part of being a vampire, but I never thought i could be as beautiful as Rose or Alice when they walked like super models across the cafeteria, but i followed them, and so did the eyes of my fellow students.
I could hear them talking, some spoke of Rosalie and how sexy she was in the mini skirt. Others, mostly the girls, talked about Edward Masen, the new student that Alice had told me about. Are they already that obsessed? I wondered as I took my seat next to Alice and surveyed the room. I was now actually curious about this Edward and wanted to see what all the girls in the school were going on about.
"I had class with that new guy 2nd hour." Rosalie announced looking at her nails. She looked bored.
"I have gym with him 6th hour!" Alice squealed. She was much too excited for her own good. I rolled my eyes.
"It's just a male human. Stop acting like that Alice. It sounds like you have a crush on him. I don't think Jasper would approve." I teased. Jasper was too tense to notice I had even mentioned him.
"Like I said to you before, I find them fascinating so shut your pretty face," She started, "Have you seen him yet?"
I rolled my eyes, "You're the psychic remember?" I said.
"I know you haven't but if you want to see him look three tables over, he's next to Jessica." Alice said crossing her arms, she was annoyed with me.
I sighed and turned my head to where I knew Jessica Stanley sat and eyed her army of freaks while trying to be discrete. I noticed Jessica's normal hoes sitting around her looking...hoe-ish. Lauren Mallory was staring at her food and glancing up at someone across the table and next to Jessica. He had untidy bronze colored hair that he kept running his hands through. He looked absolutely petrified and seemed to want to get up and leave; which i didn't blame him for. So this was Edward Masen. Even I couldn't say he wasn't handsome. He was probably one of the most beautiful humans I had every laid eyes upon. He had perfect hair, perfect green eyes....Get a grip, Bella, he's a puny human. At that very moment, Edward turned his head and looked me dead in the eyes. Of course, I immediately turned my head so fast that he probably didn't even know i had been looking at him.
"So what did you think?" Alice asked looking at me with excitement, she was almost bouncing in her seat. I didn't know why she cared so much about what i thought of this Edward.
"What's it matter? He's just a classmate?" I said as I pretend to eat a spoonful of pudding; it smelled terrible.
"Why the hell do you have to be so moody, Bell? Were you turned when you were PMSing or something?" Emmett asked. It pissed me off, naturally, and i kicked Emmett in the shin under the table. It was like concrete hitting concrete and my kick unfortunately left Emmett unscathed. Damn. Emmett chuckled.
"Nice try." Emmett said smirking. Jasper chuckled next to Alice and I shot him a glare and he immediately shut up.
Suddenly, Alice went rigid, we all stared at her, we knew she was having a vision. When she came out of her 'little trip to the future' as Emmett liked to call her visions, she turned to me and gaped. Shit. This vision was about me.
"What did you see, Alice?" I asked slowly. She was looking at me strangely. I didn't like it.
A/N- -looks around innocent.- im such a bitch for leaving you all hanging but who knows you might not like my story. please comment and let me know what you think.
i hope you like bitchy/angry Bella. Edwards character hasn't really been developed but i think that since they swapped places and Bella has been alone for so long she would be different as would Edward. so yeah. i hope you like it. i will try to switch around POV to the other characters like Alice and Jasper, Rose and Emmett but it will mostly be E/B.
Reviews make me explain Alice's vision in the next chapter.
