People Who Made Me Smile – Mc Alice Bones Salvatore :D

I updated pretty fast.

I'm alone. It's surreal. I didn't think this was going to happen.

Bella's POV

2 weeks later

Beep! Beep! Beep!

6:00 a.m.

I never thought I'd be so happy for a Monday morning. I actually have something to do. It's only school, but it still beats nothing. I didn't have school since we were making sure I was settled in. Alice had been over for the weekend. Since she left, I had done nothing but walk aimlessly around my apartment basically. I didn't go out or dress up. Sweats were my new addiction. Everyone is so jealous of my life. Not. I didn't know what to do. I have 2 contacts in my phone: Alice and Brian. I was a loser.

Beep! Beep! Beep! My alarm clock interrupted my thoughts. 6:05 a.m.

I quickly ran to take a shower. I decided I should at least look presentable for my new tutor or teacher. Whatever you call it. I put on some dark skinny jeans, a short sleeved floral blouse, and some brown flats. I just let my hair go into its natural waves. I started the coffee maker, and I grabbed a muffin. I heard the coffee maker go off as soon as I finished eating. I quickly brushed my teeth just as I heard the buzzer go off. I walked over to let her in the building. I heard a knock about a minute later.

"Hi, I'm Bella," I said when I opened the door.

"Hello, I'm Mrs. Perry, but please call me Lindsey," She smiled.

"Would you like a cup of coffee?" I asked.

"Sure,"

I brought two coffee mugs over and sat down with her at the table.

"Thanks," She smiled.

Promptly at noon she left.

4 Days Later

After Lindsey left, I finished up the assignments she had given me. I was way ahead of all the kids at Forks High School. I could graduate way before them. I decided to go to the local library and set up a membership. I grabbed my purse and my keys. I hit floor 1 in the elevator. I drove over to the library and set up my account. The workers there were all older ladies and were very sweet. I also set up a membership at the local fitness center.

I was looking for my phone because it had buzzed as I headed towards the elevator. I ran smack into Brian.

"Oh my gosh. I'm so sorry. Are you okay?" I frowned.

"No worries," He smiled.

I had a moment where you would have seen a light bulb appear above my head.

"What's up?" I asked, wondering why he was here.

"Just had to pay the lawn guy," He laughed.

"What are you up to tonight?" I asked.

"Nothing much," He gave me a questioning look.

"Well, I don't really know anyone around here, and I'm pretty bored. I was wondering if you'd like to come over for dinner." I smiled.

Please say yes. Please. I need to get my mind of Edward.

"Sure, sounds great," He grinned.

"Come on over at seven," I smiled.

I hit the elevator button.

"By the way, nice ride," He winked.

"Thank-you," I smiled.

I leaned against the door when I got in and squealed.

Total Alice moment.

I remembered my phone had buzzed, so I got it out.

Hey girl

I can't come until tomorrow. Sorry for the change of plans. Anything new? ;)

Xoxo

Alice

I quickly responded.

I completely forgot you were supposed to come today. I can't believe it's Friday already. Haha. Well, Brian's coming over for dinner. I'm going to make something good See ya tomorrow!

Xoxo

Bella

I got out my mom's recipe book. I decided to make tangy ranch chicken. I miss my parents so much.

You go girl ;) Edward keeps asking if I've had any visions about you. I've got something to tell him now! Haha.

Alice

The mention of his name pained me. I miss him, but I need to be strong.

What should I wear?

Bella

I vacuumed and wiped the table off. It wasn't really dirty, but it gave me something to do.

A dress and heels.

Alice

Way to narrow it down. I laughed.

I deserved this. I've been depressed and down for almost a month. Edward hadn't tried to contact me or anything. Maybe it was time to move on. I know I still love him, but I can't be this down forever.

I decided on a simple black dress and red heels. I put some mascara on and some lip gloss. I decided to just wear a few red bracelets.

It was almost six. I put some rolls in the oven, made a salad, and started the chicken. I picked up my school books and put them on my desk. About a half hour later, all of the food was ready. I set the table up. I quickly checked my email to see if Edward had tried to contact me.

Hello Bella, you have 0 unread messages!

Right again. Face it Bella, he's over you.

I heard a knock at the door. I quickly logged out.

Oh yeah, he doesn't have to wait to be buzzed up.

I opened the door.

He looked nice. I smiled.

"Well hello," He said looking me up and down.

I giggled.

"You look beautiful," He smiled.

"Thank-you," I grinned.

Bella, be cool. Don't rush things. Your heart is still healing.

I gave him a tour around the apartment and we sat down to eat.

We discussed life. I had really missed being able to talk to Edward. I really didn't have anyone to talk to. Alice and I had to be careful about speaking, so I rarely got to speak with her during the week. He was 20, and taking classes at the local college. He was going to be a lawyer. We both had just gotten out of serious relationships and were afraid to get hurt again.

It was only 8:30 when we finished eating. He helped me clean-up.

"That was delicious," He grinned.

"Thank-you," I smiled.

"Want to watch a movie?" I asked hoping he wanted to stay longer.

"Sure," He laughed.

I decided to let him choose and he chose What Happens In Vegas.

So he's into romantic comedies.

I really liked having someone there. I had been so lonely the past few weeks.

We ended up talking the whole movie. We never ran out of things to talk about. I put on some music.

"Want to dance?" He grinned.

"Sure," I smiled.

Maybe we were both rebounds for each other, but I didn't care. I needed someone in my life I could talk to. I deserved that much, right?

It was dark outside by now. We were dancing and laughing. I glanced at the clock. 12:02 a.m.

"I better get home," Brian said.

"Yeah, I need to get sleep," I laughed and followed him to the door.

"Goodnight, Bella," Brian kissed me on the cheek.

"Goodnight, Brian," I said shutting the door after him.

I quickly got ready for bed and climbed in. I was pretty tired.

Review Don't worry, Edward will be back. Eventually. Next chapter, I will have a little of Edward's POV. Next chapter is coming soon.
