What I've Been Waiting For:


It was Monday morning and it was also my first day at Forks High School and nothing interesting had happened until after lunch. I tripped over my own two feet (it wouldn't be the first time) and saw the poster that was now in front of me. It read:

Forks High School Talent Show

This Friday

See Eric Yorkie for details

Jessica looked toward me and asked me,"Are you going to enter?"

I answered, "Yes."

She immediately asked, "What will you be doing?"

I replied, "I think I'm gonna sing."

"That's cool. I didn't know you sang."

"Yeah." I replied.

We departed as I walked into my sixth hour biology classroom. The teacher smiled at me as I walked in and said: "Oh. You must be Isabella. You can take a seat next to Mr. Cullen over there."

I smiled at him and shyly corrected him. "Bella," I said, "I like to be called Bella." All he did was nod like he could care less.

I slowly made my way over to the boy, and I took some time to carefully examine him. He had very pale skin, a boyish face, tussled bronze hair, and dark circles under his eyes. He seemed to be staring at me with a confused but yet disgusted face. I couldn't understand his disgust, I had taken a shower this morning. As I sat down I took a minute to smell my hair. Ahh, it smelled like strawberries, just like this morning. So what was with him?

I started zoning out as the teacher started talking. We had already gone over all of this in Phoenix, so there was nothing new for me. I started thinking about what song to sing. I was lost in thought for the rest of the hour except for the times that I was stealing glances at the strange guy sitting next to me. Every time I looked, he seemed to also be staring at me. I didn't get it! What was wrong with me? I kept asking myself this, but every time I kept reassuring myself by saying, Just remember, he was looking at you too. It didn't help too much, and when the bell rang, he was already gone.


When she walked into the classroom the scent of her blood just hit me. I was so tempted to attack her, but what good would that do me? All it would do would be exposing my family and killing her. Without even knowing her, I already felt there was something special about her.

I tried to get into her mind, but I couldn't. Everything was blank. I couldn't hear! As she sat down, I scooted away, the scent was way too strong. It was so hard to stay away, but I managed yet I couldn't take my eyes off her. She was just so beautiful and I think she's what I've been waiting for.
