I hope you guys enjoy this chapter! Sorry if I have been a tad slow in updating but I'll make this chapter extra-long.

The rest of the day flew by up until English. Unfortunately, Lauren was in this lesson and she turned to me and dug her claw-like nails into my arm.

"Hey, don't think I didn't see you flirting around with my Edward. He's my boy so don't do it again."

"For your info, we weren't flirting and I don't see your name written on his forehead. We had just finished the game that you and your followers decided to ditch because you had just done your make-up. How pathetic!" I stormed away from her but she grabbed me.

By this time everyone had started to watch us and I could see Edward smirking in the corner.

"Isabella Swan, don't make me angry. Bitch!" She spat at me. I'd teach her a lesson. I saw two sluttish looking girls crowd around Lauren.

"Yeah, don't make her angry or else." One of her slut friends shouted.

"Jess, if I need a parrot I'll go and buy one! Just let me handle this." Janice and Jessica walked away together and went back to ogling at Edward.

"Bitch? That's very original." I said sarcastically. "I'd rather be a bitch than a slut-wannabe who prances around thinking she owns the school when she can't even keep a guy out of her pants for two seconds!" I heard a lot of the boys whistling and some of the girls cheering and so I just grinned and looked Lauren up and down before turning around to find a seat.

"Me a slut? No one talks to me like that and gets a way with it! Swan this is so not over." I ignored her and continued looking for a spare seat. I was stopped by the teacher.

"You sure put her in her place. That girl thinks she owns the place. Don't do it again, though." He whispered that into my ear before giving me a wink. I nodded at him and gave him a small smile.

"Lauren please go and sit down. The shows over people. So your the new girl Isabella Swan. I'm Mr Gibson. Please introduce yourself to the class." he said in a louder voice.

"Okay. Well my name is Isabella as you already know but I prefer Bella. I'm originally from Forks but I moved here because my father, Charlie, got a new job."

"That's good. We could learn a few tips from Is-sorry I mean Bella like how she didn't over stress her use of words." He beamed at me and pointed to a seat next to…Edward.

Ugh. I walked to my seat and tried to copy down notes but Edward refused to leave me alone. Luckily, I was saved when Mr Gibson announced he had something to say.

"I have contacted the Drama department and they think that this year our focus should be on Pride and Prejudice and since I'm a great fan of Jane Austen I have been given the chance to select who will be in this years performance. I'll choose the main characters will be: Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy now but I will put all the people chosen alongside their character up on a bulletin board tomorrow." He concluded and began to hand out a sheet of paper.

"Boys read the first paragraph and the girls read the second paragraph. After everyone has read aloud I will decide who is best to play each role. Angela, you go first and then Ben sitting beside you and so on and so on until everyone has had a turn."

She began: " 'Indeed you are mistaken. I have no such injuries to resent, It is not of p-peculiar, but of general evils, which I am now complaining. Our importance, our respectability in the world, must be affected by the wild volatility, the assurance and disdain of all restraint which mark Lydia's character. Excuse me -- for I must speak plainly. If you, my dear father, will not take the trouble of checking her exuberant spirits, and of teaching her that her present pursuits are not to be the business of her life, she will soon be beyond the reach of am-en-d-ment. In this danger Kitty is to also comprehended. She will follow wherever Lydia leads. -- Vain, ignorant, idle, and absolutely uncontrolled! Oh! my dear father, can you suppose it possible that they will not be censured and despised wherever they are known, and that their sisters will not be often involved in the disgrace?'' She read the passage with fluency and I though she did well. It went on this way until it was Lauren's turn.

She read: " 'Indeed you are mistaken. I- I have no such injuries to resent, It is not of p-peculiar, but of general evils, which I am now complaining. Our importance, our res-pect-ab-il-ity in the world, must be affected by the wild volatility, the assurance and disdain of all restraint which mark Lydia's character. Excuse me -- for I must speak plainly. If you, my dear father, will not take the trouble of checking her exuberant spirits, and of teaching her that her present pursuits are not to be the business of her life, she will soon be beyond the reach of am-en-d-ment. In this danger Kitty is to also comp-re-hen-ded. She will follow wherever Lydia leads. -- Vain, ignorant, idle, and absolutely uncontrolled! Oh! my dear father, can you suppose it possible that they will not be censured and despised wherever they are known, and that their sisters will not be often um involved in the disgrace?'' She stuttered at the end and I stifled a laugh. It was Edward's turn next.

He read: " 'I cannot give you credit for any philosophy of the kind. Your retrospections must be so totally void of reproach, that the contentment arising from them is not of philosophy, but, what is much better, of innocence. As a child I was taught what was right, but I was not taught to correct my temper. I was given good principles, but left to follow them in pride and conceit. Unfortunately an only son (for many years an only child), I was spoilt by my parents, who, though good themselves (my father, particularly, all that was benevolent and amiable), allowed, encouraged, almost taught me to be selfish and overbearing; to care for none beyond my own family circle; to think meanly of all the rest of the world; to wish at least to think meanly of their sense and worth compared with my own. Such I was, from eight to eight and twenty; and such I might still have been but for you, dearest, loveliest Elizabeth! What do I not owe you! You taught me a lesson, hard indeed at first, but most advantageous. By you, I was properly humbled. I came to you without a doubt of my reception. You showed me how insufficient were all my pretensions to please a woman worthy of being pleased." His velvet voice captured every word perfectly and I knew he was going to make a great Mr Darcy. Everyone clapped and I couldn't help clapping too. It was now my turn.

I began: "'Indeed you are mistaken. I have no such injuries to resent, It is not of p-peculiar, but of general evils, which I am now complaining.

I took a deep breath and I was shocked when I heard claps coming from most of my classmates. I blushed and lowered my head slightly. Did, I really do that well?

Everyone had finished reading.

"Well done everyone especially Edward and Bella because you two are our Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. As for the rest of you, I will put the results up on a bulletin board. You are now dismissed."

We got up and cleared out of the room. I was still in shock and I bumped into something hard. Oh, it was Edward.

"So, it looks like you're my Elizabeth." He grinned that dazzling smile of his at me and it was a while before I was able to respond.

"And you're my Mr Darcy then." I giggled and was about to walk off before he grabbed my arm.

"Hey. Don't forget our meeting. Meet me at the gym in fifteen minutes."

"Sure." I said confidently before we split up.

I sat on a bench and waited for a while. I was five minutes late. Damn! He'd probably think I was having second thoughts. I sprinted towards the gym and went inside. He was there waiting for me. He had changed his clothes.

He was dressed in plain jeans and his cotton shirt showed the outline of his abs. I kept on walking towards him confidently because I was going to make him pay for his comment he had made in Gym this morning.

"You're finally here. I thought you had changed your mind or something." His words angered me even more but I decided to play it cool.

"Eddie. I wouldn't miss this for the world." I flashed my best smile at him and for a moment I could swear he looked flustered.

"Sure. Sure. Well, I was thinking. Since my team won the basketball game I should get to test you on something. Maybe we could have a little contest?" Hmm…

"What kind of contest?" I was suddenly curious. His grin got wider and if it was on anyone else the sight would be painful but on him it looked adorable.

"We could test each other on different things five times and the person who wins the most times gets $50 from their opponent and also a chance to dare him or her. So, are you up for it?" I was so going to kick his butt.

"Sure! Be prepared to lose." I had a strong urge to stick my tongue out at him but I overcame that desire.

"Oh, I could say the same about you."

"Whatever! So what's the challenge today then?"

Dun, dun, dun…

Write to me and tell me what you think the challenge should be. Next chapter here I come…
