And without further adue I give to you Easier to Lie:
I Bella Swan am in love with my best friend. Edward Cullen starred in every one of my dreams since I was seven years old. We grew up together; our mother's are best friends since they met in birthing classes pregnant with us. They had their baby showers together and they even went into labor on the same day. Even though my mother Renee's water broke in the morning and Edward's mother Esme's didn't break until later in the evening, Edward was born three hours before me on September 12. I followed stubbornly and was born at two in the morning on September 13, 1988.
We were best friends from day one of our lives. Our houses filled with pictures of the two of us growing up together. Our backyards filled with memories of joint birthdays. We did everything together, on our first day of preschool, Edward held my hand when I started to cry and didn't let go until I saw my mom at the end of the day. We even got to spend an awesome two weeks in quarantine together in the second grade when we got the chicken pox. Edward and I shared everything, not just birthday parties, we also shared our families, friends, and our lives. During the entire time of our friendship we never fought, not once.
That is until our freshmen year of college, that was when everything changed and none of it was for the better. I had spent the past 18 years of my life loving Edward and only realizing I was in love with him, when I was in the eleventh grade. I wanted so badly to tell him but I was afraid that me being in love with him would ruin our strong friendship and that was something I would never do.
So I held it in and died a little bit inside, each time I saw him talk to a girl in the hallways of the school or talk about one of his dates. Our friends knew about my situation but they kept it to themselves and would even change the subject if they noticed I was getting uncomfortable.
Emmett, his older brother was the first one to find out about my feelings when we were at our 16th birthday party and I saw Edward kiss Jessica Stanley, leading to me high tailing it out of the restaurant to cry by the dumpster. Emmett saw me and held me throughout my little breakdown, whispering that it would be fine.
Emmett was two years older than us. He was about 6'8 and covered in muscles, he had curly sandy brown hair and dark blue eyes. Emmett dated Rosalie Hale, perfection to a tee.
Rosalie Hale the reason girls get plastic surgery, sex on legs. She looked like a runway model, even on days when she was working on her car in a sweat suit. Her piercing light blue eyes, long wavy blond hair, and natural good looks made her look like she just walked off a photo shoot for Vogue. Rosalie and her family moved into the house next door, the summer before our freshman year at Forks high. Along with Rose came Jasper.
Jasper Hale was Rose's twin brother that looked just like her, except he wore his hair in short spikes he was tall lean and handsome in a western sort of way. Jasper was a quiet mousy little book worm. He only talked when spoken directly too and was a total introvert until he met my best girl friend Alice Brandon.
Alice Brandon, ran into me on my first day of first grade and told me that my purple skirt was pretty and the rest is history. She was always tiny and still is standing at a whopping 4'7. Her pixie hair cut she had worn since we were in the first grade, made her look like a real pixie. Her hazel eyes could go from piercing to compassionate in less than a second, but that was part of the charm that is Alice Brandon. Her addiction to shopping and fire ball energy were her only down fall.
Edward Cullen, ah. Where do I begin? He was 6'3, lean and muscular. His tuff of bronze hair always looked like he just rolled out of bed and in later years I started to call it his sex hair. He had emerald colored eyes, and a crooked smile that could take your breath away. He was perfect in each and every way, and for that I was in love with him.
All of my friends were absolutely perfect and beautiful in their own different unique ways. Compared to them, I was the plane Jane of the group. Boring brown hair to match my boring brown eyes, I had curves but I hid them behind loose fitting jeans and tee shirts. Alice would attempt to give me a makeover at least twice a week, once she even got me at school in the girls bathroom. Luckily I had been able to avoid the torturous makeovers for a long time.
That is until the night that everything changed.
"Bella it's your first college party you have to dress up." Alice whined.
"No, I am fine with jeans and a tee." I shook my head stubbornly.
"Please Bells, if you let me give you a makeover for this one party I won't try to force you into shopping for a month." she pouted.
I don't know what it was? her pout or the promise of a month free from shopping… but I agreed.
"Oh, Bella thank you thank you so much you won't regret it, I promise." she squealed.
"I want to look good not slutty, do you understand?" I took her face in my hand squishing her lips together like a fish.
"Yesp, mem." she managed to get out.
For two hours I sat in a chair in the dorms bathroom getting plucked, polished, and buffed. Just as I was about to give up and run for the safety of my room I got a text message.
Hey B, are you coming to the party tonight? E
My heart stuttered as I replied a quick: Yep I will see you there! Alice got a hold of me and is trying to make me beautiful.
You already are, so it shouldn't take long see you there. E
I replied: You too.
"So Bells are you going to make a move on him or what?" Rose asked as she handed me a small bit of fabric.
"What is this?" I asked holding it up.
"Your dress silly, answer the question." she scolded snatching it away from me so I could get undressed.
"I am not going to 'make my move', not now or ever." I stated pulling the dress over my head.
"Why not? You two would be perfect together." Alice whined as she sprayed glitter on the massive amount of cleavage that was sticking out of the top of my dress and twirling her finger around signaling for me to turn around.
"It's not going to happen so you two ca-." I was struck speechless when I saw my reflection.
My hair had been straightened and curled at the ends flowing down my back. My eyebrows sculpted perfectly over dark smokey lids. My lips were a soft pink color that made my teeth look extra white. The dress was a strapless dark blue number that rested about six inches above my knees.
"So what do you think?" Alice asked nervously.
"I think you're a miracle worker! both of you." I said as I trampled her in a hug.
"I love you B, but your hair is going to get ruined, so hug me later." she laughed.
It took Rose and Alice a grand total of thirty minutes to get ready. Alice wore a hot pink babydoll dress with matching headband and stilettos. Rose chose a red sweater dress with black fuck-me pumps.
"You two look amazing." I complimented.
"And you're smoking hot. Now for the final touch." Alice squealed pulling a box out from under her bed. She opened the box revealing a pair of six inch peep toe pumps.
"There is no way in hell I am wearing those! You've got to be fucking kidding me." I gasped backing away.
"Yeah we are." Rose laughed pulling a pair of dark blue ballet flats out of her bag. "We wouldn't want you to fall flat on your face at your first college party."
"Thank you so much." I gratefully accepted the flats and slipped them on.
"Are we ready ladies?" Alice squealed.
"Hell yeah." Rose and I cried in unison.
The house was packed, I could feel the music in my bones, and the smell of alcohol was strong. We met up with Emmett and Jasper, and immediately I felt like a fifth wheel. I was about to head to the bathroom when someone put their warm hands over my eyes.
"Guess who?" he whispered loudly in his soft velvety voice.
"Hmmm… Adolf Hitler?" I joked as he removed his hands.
"You're funny B."
"Yep, call me Dr. Crack up." it was so easy to be like this with Edward, it was like breathing, something I have done since day one.
"Do you want a drink?" He called over the music.
I nodded and he took my hand leading me to the bar. "Hey there beautiful what can I get for you?" a creepy blond senior asked from behind the bar. I felt Edward squeeze my hand but I didn't think anything of it.
"I'll just have a coke." I answered. "Edward?"
"Vodka and Red Bull." he answered.
"Coming right up. I'm James, but you can call me big pappa." he said putting the two plastic cups in front of us.
"Eww, no thanks James." I answered coolly as I pulled Edward away from the bar.
"Bells! Come dance with us." Alice called from the dance floor where she and Rose were grinding on each other.
I wasn't the best dancer but I figured it wasn't worth dealing with Alice making a scene to embarrass me. I held up a finger and chugged the contents of my cup before making my way over to them. With Alice in front of me and Rose behind, we started grinding together, causing a lot of heads to turn in our direction. Any other time I would hate the attention but not tonight, because standing beside Emmett and Jasper was my best friend staring at me. I could practically feel his eyes trailing up and down my body as I swayed my hips, and I loved it!
After the song Emmett claimed Rose back and they started dry humping on the dance floor. At Alice's request Jasper accompanied her to the restroom. I looked around trying to find Edward but I couldn't see him.
"Hey Isabella." Mike Newton called over the loud music.
"Hey Mike." I muttered not even bothering to remind him that I hated my full name. My eyes trailed across the room looking for the familiar bronze hair I loved.
"Do you want to dance?" he asked hopefully.
"Mi-" and I spotted the bronze hair, but to my surprise there were a pair of hands with hot pink nails weaved through it. Edward was making out with a tall blond. I felt my heart stop beating, and I felt like I was going to vomit.
"Bella?" Mike asked. "Do you want to dance?"
"N-no. I need to rest my feet, these heels are starting to hurt." I lied.
"You aren't wearing heels."
"Oh ha! I was earlier but I changed. Why don't we just go get a couple of drinks?" I offered my eyes never leaving the back of Edward's head as I watched him rub his hands up and down the blonde's back.
"Alright, what would you like? You don't drink do you?" he asked leading the way to creepy James.
"Hey there beautiful what are we going to have this time?"
"Anything with alcohol please." I muttered glancing over to see that the blonde's hands had left Edward's hair but were now gripping his ass while she grinded her hips into his.
"How about a screaming orgasm." James growled.
"No, I want to get fucked up and I doubt that those pansy drinks are going to get the job done." I snapped. "I'll just have a couple shots of vodka."
"Alright darling." he smiled.
I took a couple of slices of lemon and rolled them in sugar while he poured the shots for me.
"Bella have you ever drank before?" Mike asked.
"Mike just shut up and have fun for once." I took my first shot and bit into the lemon before chugging the beer. "Ahh… feel good burn." I breathed as I looked back over at Edward. 'God shoot me now.' I thought as I reached for another shot. "Keep`em coming James."
I thought I heard something along the lines of 'I'll keep you coming' but I ignored it and took my third shot.
An hour later I was feeling good, I had lost Mike after I took my fourth shot. I was standing on a deserted balcony when I heard my name being called.
"Bells." I turned around.
"Thaz-me name." I told one of the three Alices standing in front of me.
"Have you been drinking?" they all asked at once.
"You told me I should have fun." I pouted wishing only one would talk at a time.
"I told you to have fun, you're completely smashed. Edward's been looking for you." as soon as she said his name I leaned over the edge and threw up.
"Oh Bells." she cooed as she pulled my hair away from my face. "It's fine I always bring a toothbrush with me, you can still have fun with Edward."
My heaves turned to sobs. "Bells it's fine do you want me to go find Edward?" she asked.
"Will you just stop saying his fucking name? God damn it!" I yelled causing her to flinch.
"Sorry I was just trying to help."
"I know I'm sorry, can you just take me home please?" I asked as the tears started falling down my face.
"Sure babe, we just have to let Jasper know what's going on. Are you going to be okay walking down there?"
"Yeah the sooner the better though." I stood up.
We walked hand in hand down the stairs, crowded with people in different stages of sexual activity. I kept my eyes on the ground, afraid that I was going to see him in the act and just the thought brought on a new round of tears.
After finding Jasper and explaining that I wasn't feeling well, Alice led me out to her car. "Are you going to tell me what's going on?" she whispered.
"Well, what is there to tell? Girl likes boy, boy makes girl think that boy likes the girl. Girl dances provocatively just to find boy making out with the other girl."
"What the hell? Bella how much did you drink because you just made absolutely no sense what-so-ever." she laughed.
"Oh, Ali he kissed another girl." I cried.
"What?" she yelled slamming on her breaks. "He was watching you dance like you were the greatest thing since sliced bread."
"I-I don't know… just please take me home." I begged.
"Of course B, Do you want me to stay?" I nodded. "Okay I'll take you to your place and then run home and grab some stuff."
We made it to my dorm and she laid me on the bed before dashing out. I sat there and wallowed myself in pity until I heard a knock on the door. "ALICE YOU KNOW THE DAMN THING IS OPEN! YOU JUST LEFT." I yelled.
The door opened. "Bells?"
My heart stopped beating. "Edward?" I whispered.
"Yeah Jasper said that you weren't feeling well so I thought that maybe I would come check in on you." he walked over to my bed. "Are you okay?"
"I'm fine Alice will be here in a minute so you can go." I answered coldly.
"Okay I just wanted to see if you were alright." he leaned down to kiss my forehead, something I had grown accustomed to, except this time I cringed away. "Bells?"
"Just go." I felt the tears coming back so I turned my body towards the wall.
"What's wrong? you can tell me anything." he asked placing his hand on my back.
"Don't touch me." I snapped my voice laced with venom.
He flinched away. "Well damn it Bells, talk to me, you have never been like this. Was it Mike? I saw you two talking, did he do something?"
"Mike didn't do anything but; bug the living hell out of me." I muttered.
"Then what is it?"
I was crying hard, my body shaking with sobs and I just wished that Alice would hurry up and get here. "Edward please just go..."
"If I go will, you talk to me about it tomorrow?" he asked hopefully.
"Probably not." I answered truthfully.
"Then I won't leave." I felt my bed dip as he sat down and his hand touched my back causing me to flinch away.
"Why won't you let me touch you?" he asked sadly.
"You want to know why I don't want you to touch me? Because I don't want that nasty bitches skanky fucking leftovers!" I yelled.
"What are you talking about Bella?" he sat up.
"I saw you all over that blonde Edward." I whispered.
"What does that have to do with anything?"
"Please Edward I can't do this right now, please just leave."
"No, I won't, you need to talk to me. We never had a fight and I don't want to start now." he said sadly.
I could do one of two things either: act like everything is fine or tell him the truth. I decided to go with the latter.
"Edward, why were you looking at me while I was dancing with the girls?" I asked sitting up to face him.
He looked at the ground but didn't answer.
"Answer me? Was it just because there were three girls all over each other or was it because it was me?" I asked.
"It was because of you." he answered still looking at the floor.
My heart stuttered before I remembered what happened after we danced. "If it was because of me, then why the fuck were you all over that girl?"
"It's none of your business Bella." he snapped.
"It's none of my fucking business? You got all hot and bothered because of me and then turned around and basically fucked some slut in front of me?" I yelled.
"You know what Bella you don't have to be such a fucking bitch." he said before realizing what he just said. "Bells I'm sorry."
"Get the fuck out of my room." I laid back down. 'Where in the hell is Alice?'
"Bells?" he put his hand on my shoulder and I smacked it off.
"I said, get the fuck out of my room god damn it! Get the fuck out and stay out." I turned so that I was facing the wall and bawled.
Five minutes after I heard the door slam shut and then it opened again in few seconds. "B?" Alice's small voice called.
"What happened? I saw him walk in so I waited in the hall and then I heard you yelling. Edward wouldn't say anything when he left." she asked.
"He called me a bitch, so I told him to get out and stay out."
"Oh B, I know how much you hate that word but maybe your over reacting." she said.
"You know what Ali, I really want to be left alone and I am sorry that you got your stuff and came all the way up here, but please just go." I cried.
"I don't want to leave you like this B."
"I am asking you nicely to go, do you want the same treatment I just gave Edward?" my heart hurt the second his name left my lips.
Alice left quietly and I cried for hours just thinking. 'How could he say that he was watching me and then try to say it was none of my business that he was all over some other girl?' I thought. I cried until I passed out in exhaustion.
That was a week ago and I have left my dorm a total of three times. All three time were because of some jackass that kept pulling the fire alarm. All three times as I walked back into the building, I heard my friends call my name but never was Edward's voice. I would ignore them and go back to my dorm. I had unplugged the phone the morning after the party, and put a do-not-disturb sign on the door. I had been living off of crackers, peanut butter, and bottled water for a week; not that I was eating much. After three days they stopped knocking on my door and I reveled in the silence.
That is until I was woken up at three this morning to someone banging on my door.
*Peeks out from behind the desk and yells* "SO WHAT DID YOU GUYS THINK?"
I hope you like it. Chapter two is going to be EPOV so that you can see what was going on in that beautiful stupid head of his.
Reviews are my anti drug so help keep me away from the heroine that I long for. J/K. No seriously please review.
