It's A Wing Thing

January 19, 2009. Oh, what a joyous day for Bella Swan. Guess what she gets to do...

Start at a new high school!

Ok, so it's not all fun and games in my life. As you may or may not have already figured out. Yes, I have to start high school here in Forks today. I'm up early this morning because the weatherman on the news last night said it was going to be sunny really early this morning, so I decided to get up and enjoy the sunrise and store up some energy for the stressful day to come. This is so stupid, why did I have to even move here in the first place? It's not like this place was exactly healthy for my kind of being. In fact, it's probably the worst place one of my kind could ever live. Phoenix was much better. But, I moved here for my parents; to make them both, well, three actually, happy. It's not that I'm trying to kill myself by moving here, but doing this for the good of others. Plus, in just a few years when I'm done with high school with the humans here, I'll move out and go find some others. The officers told me someone would come looking for me here when I'm done so I won't get completely lost from my world. I just hope they're right. I don't want to live with humans forever. It seems like they're so different, now that I am what I've become. And it's not like I've been this way my entire life. I was human before all this happened. Heck, I thought I was human for about five years of my life before I they came and told me I wasn't. Good thing they did, though. I'd probably be dead now if they didn't. Death by freaking out too much. Imagine my surprise when I woke up one morning to find not one, but two major surprises waiting for me. One of them I had heard of; usually the school nurse tells you and your class about it before it happens. And also my mother, getting me all the necessary products and things years before it even came. I had finally become a 'woman' that morning, in more than one way.

You see, I woke up and as you may have already guessed, figured out that I had gotten my period for the very first time. Also there was a very different thing that happened that the school nurse or my mother had definitely not told me or anyone else about. That afternoon, though, while I was still in my bathroom looking at those two huge white things on my back, the officers came and told me everything. Thank God! I thought I was going crazy but apparently there's tons of others just like me. Well, not all that many. We're a rare species, and I'm a rare species within that rare species. I'm the one that bears children, or as the humans call it, a mother. There's only a few mothers in every generation of my kind, so we're considered the 'important ones.' I guess that means I have to keep myself alive and after this is done, go find a guy to have kids with. Great. Just great for Bella!

My life is kind of messed up. I mean, I never meant this to happen to me. It was all an accident, and it happened so long ago that I barely remember. This is my fault though. If it wasn't for my clumsiness, maybe I would be still human. Maybe I would be normal. Maybe I wouldn't have to sit in the sun for as much time as I possible can, just to get some energy. Maybe I could talk and make friends with the humans here. Maybe I would be able to stay secret-free with my parents. Maybe I wouldn't have giant wings growing out between my shoulder blades.

Yes, you heard me right.

I, Bella Swan, am a faerie.
