Chapter 8: Lunch
After stopping by our lockers, Edward and I walked to the cafeteria to mee meet our siblings for lunch.
We moved through the line, and I noticed Edward reaching for a slice of pizza. "Don't get that." He looked at me, then eyed the pizza. "What's wrong with it?"
"It's just a pile of grease, and it's disgusting."
"What cafeteria food isn't gross?"
I laughed, reaching for an apple, a balogney sandwich, and a cola. "So true." He grabbed what I had, and we walked into the cafeteria, me looking for my sisters, and Edward looking for his brothers.
"Over here!" I jumped and scowled at Edward, who was now laughing at me. I followed the sound of the voice and found Emmett, standing on the table with Alice, Jasper, and Rosalie sitting in chairs around him laughing.
"Let's go." I grumbled, and started walking with Edward following behind me. When we reached the table, Emmett had gotten off the table and was sitting between Rosalie and Alice. Edward took the seat next to Jasper, who was on Ali's left, which put me between Rose and Edward.
"So how was your morning?" Ali asked, looking between me and Edward."Did anything interesting happen?"
I shrugged my shoulders. "Nothing new. Just snuck out, robbed a bank. You know, the usual."
Rose popped a piece of lettuce into her mouth then set down her fork. "So how much did you get?"
"Just a few hundred; we didn't have long before we had to head back to class."
I looked at Emmett, who's jaw had dropped and his eyes looked like they were ready to pop out of his head. Jasper was smiling and Edward was smirking. "What?" I asked innocently.
"Are you serious?" Emmett asked.
I looked at Ali and Rose, and we all burst out laughing. "Of course not, Emmett. It's just an inside joke we have."
Emmett looked disappointed. "So you aren't bank robbers?"
"Nope." Rose said, popping the "P".
I rolled my eyes, and looked at Ali. "So what have you guys been doing?"
"Nothing fun. Mr. Fairgave us so much homework. It's a computer class. What are we suppossed to learn?"
"How to type?" I shrugged.
"My typing is excellent, thank you very much," Rose added. "You've seen my texting."
"What about Drawing, Rose?"
She immediately perked up as soon as I mentioned anything about art. "We're working with shadows and textures."
I smiled when she mentioned shadows. Which reminds me... "Do you know the boys have a band?"
I glanced at Rose, who looked at Emmett. "I didn't know that. Did you know that?" She looked at Ali.
"Well I didn't know that." She looked at Jasper. "So what's you're name?"
Emmett rolled his eyes. "We already told you. Were you not paying attention? I'm Emmett, he's Edward, and he's Jasper." Jasper smacked Emmett upside the head, and Edward rolled his eyes and answered "Midnight Runaways. You?"
Jasper looked at all of us. "You have a band?"
I nodded. "Silver Shadows."
"I like it." Edward nodded. "How did you come up with it?"
"Well Bella came up with it," Rose commented, "so she should tell the story."
Alice nodded, and looked at me. She always liked listening to the story. I glanced at Edward, and took a deep breath. "One thing you need to know before I start was that I was majorly afraid of the dark when I was younger, and-"
"Why?" Emmett cut in. I glared at him then answered. "Well, duh. The monsters. And... darkness really doesn't really help the uncoordinated." Edward was chuckling, shaking his head, Jasper was laughing, and Emmett's booming laugh was shaking the table. It nearly scared me half to death, and I was angry.
"Hey!" I snapped. "I was only 6. Cut me some slack!" I glared at them until they were quiet, which didn't take long. "Anyway... Rose and I were 6 and Ali was 5. We were playing tag outside, and when it started getting dark, Renee called us in for dinner. Well on the way in, I looked at the sky, and it was colors were beautiful; there was still a little bit of the sunset left, and it blended in with the night to make every color imaginable. After we made a promis, the first star of the night showed up, and it was a bright silver. When I looked down and saw the shadows, they didn't seem so scary anymore. Hence the name Silver Shadows. But the band thing was Ali and Rose's idea. I just came up with the name."
I looked at Edward who was staring at me with wide eyes. I blushed. "What?"
He shook his head. "Nothing," he mumbled.
Ali looked at them "So what's the story behind your name?"
"Well..." Edward started, but was cut off by the bell. "I guess you'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out."
A/N: Sorry this took so long. I got the 10th review a few days ago, and several more contest entries. I have already decided a winner, but I won't be revealing who it is until the next chapter (I know, I'm evil ;) ), but I would like to mention now how thankful I am that people sent in some of there own stories. I can't describe how happy I was when I recieved an email, telling me I had a new submission. Seriously, reading every one made my day. Double thanks to the Doubletime Twins, who were the first to submit. I originally intended to have the boys' story in this chapter, but I need to do some minor editing on my part to have it flow smoothly.
Also (as soon as I remember; someone may have to remind me!) I'll be putting the class schedule for the current semester on my profile. I based it off of my school's schedules and courses, so if you have any questions, just let me know.
Anyways, I am considering looking for someone to co-author this story, because I have been way to busy to figure all this stuff out by myself. I'll keep ya'll updated, but I'm not really looking right now. But if you're interested, feel free to let me know. It'll definitely make updates come quicker.
