As You Walked Into My Life
Disclaimer: I do not own Twilight, as you all know, but me and Kate now have lots of Twilight merchandise from Hot Topic! My brother just brought it back from America! Yay!
Rivenhall Boarding School was one of the most elite co-ed boarding schools in the country. Only the richest, brightest and most beautiful people got in. So, what was I doing here? I was poor and average-looking, sure I was smart, and I had tried my best to get in here…but still.
It wasn't like I thought it would be, I thought that everyone would be so much friendlier. Who was I kidding? I knew that they wouldn't want to be friends with me, I was only here on scholarship. I had only gotten in because I had won a country-wide competition. I had to know everything in every subject.
Miraculously, I had won, and received a scholarship to Rivenhall. I had only just arrived, and already I felt like crying. My father, Charlie, had driven me here and I had said my goodbyes. I was going to really miss him, he was the only family I had, other than my sister Renesmee. My mother died when I was 5, and I didn't remember her much.
Nessie doesn't remember her at all, and it's been really hard on her. She was going to be attending a lower-costing boarding school nearby. My father wanted to keep us as close to each other as possible. To do so he had to spend all of his savings on Nessie's school fees. It was going to be harder for him now.
I was now walking along the path that led to my dorm building. I was going to be living with two other girls in my dorm room. Apparently their names were Rosalie Hale, and Alice Cullen. They were probably like the rest of them, snobby rich kids, who hated me because my clothes didn't have the expensive labels.
I sighed, as I ascended the stairs that would lead to my room. I was on the 4th floor, which was also the top floor. It took me forever to get there, even though I only had a suitcase and a small bag. Why had they put so many stairs in? Or why hadn't they just put an elevator in?
When I eventually reached my room, I heard girls chatting loudly in there, informing me that my roommates were already here. I carefully opened the door, trying not to make too much noise and disturb them.
As soon as I walked into the room, a small pixie-like girl came running over to me. She enclosed me in a tight hug, while an absolutely gorgeous blonde girl tried to pull her off me.
"I am so sorry about Alice," the blonde said, after successfully pulling the pixie-like girl off me. She extended her hand to shake mine. "You must be our roommate, Isabella Swan. I'm Rosalie Hale and this is Alice Cullen."
"It's Bella," I managed to stutter out. "It's very nice to meet you."
I looked around the room, it was huge for a dorm room. There were 3 single beds, with a small table next to each one. There were two doors, one opened to a massive walk in closet and the other one led to a bathroom.
"So Bella, where are you from?" Rosalie asked politely.
"I'm from a little town called Forks, it's in Washington," I replied.
"That is so cool, I've always wanted to live in a small town. Though I probably wouldn't be able to survive not having a shopping mall for miles," Alice babbled.
"Alice is a shopaholic," Rosalie explained, rolling her eyes. "Anyway, which bed would you like? We just got here a few minutes before you, and we thought that you'd like to pick first anyway."
"I don't mind, you two can pick first," I said, completely surprised that they were being nice to me. They were the type of girls that wear Prada and Gucci, and look down on anyone who doesn't.
"Okay then, Alice what bed do you want?" Rosalie said, turning to Alice.
"Ummmmm, I'll take that one!" Alice replied, excitedly jumping up and down. She had pointed to the bed that was closest to the closet.
"I guess I'll take that one then," Rosalie said pointing to one of the beds next to Alice's. I picked up my bags and walked over to my bed. I unzipped my bag, and began to unpack.
"So Bella, who's bringing up the rest of your clothes?" Alice asked curiously.
"Oh, um, these are all of my clothes," I replied. I could feel my cheeks turn red instantly. When I turned around, I saw that Alice had a shocked look on her face.
"We have to go shopping as soon as possible!" Alice exclaimed. I looked around the room, to see that their bags weren't here.
"Where are your bags?" I asked confused. The closet was empty, except for the many coat hangers.
"Oh, our brothers are bringing them up, they should be here in...3...2...1...," Alice explained. Just then a bronze haired boy came crashing through the door. He was carrying 3 large suitcases, and seemed to be exhausted from walking up the stairs with them.
"Alice, how many clothes do you need? You do realise that you only have one closet between you, Rosalie and your other roommate," the boy said, placing the bags down.
He obviously hadn't seen me standing there yet. After putting down the bags he stretched his arms, making his shirt ride up to reveal his abs. He turned and looked around the room, running his hand through his hair. I was now gawking at him, completely dazzled by his god-like beauty.
When he noticed me standing there, we both completely froze. I stared into his sparkling emerald green eyes and I seemed to be caught in a trance, I couldn't look away.
AN:Hey everybody I know that this is basically the exact same chapter as before, but I decided to change a few small things in it, so sorry if that's a nuisance at all. Also I will be updating both this and my other story a.s.a.p, because I am now on school holidays!
