Hey everyone. This is my first FF so hope you like it.

I sat up fast as lightning as soon as I heard the scream. The clock next to my bed said 2 o'clock. Great. I got up and ran downstairs as fast as I could. I didn't want Lily, my little sister to wake up Charlie sleeping next door; he needed to wake up early enough as it is.
Opening Lily's door I saw her still thrashing around on the bed from the nightmare she had. I remember going through that stage in my life. I was 9, just like Lily is now. I sat on the edge of her bed placing my hand on her forehead and whispering that everythings okay; it was just a dream.
She stirred a little. "Bella?" she said. "Yeah Lils it's me. You have another nightmare?" She nodded and wiped her eyes. "You want to come up and sleep with me now?" "Y-Yes p-please."
I helped her stand up. I'd have carried her up the stairs if I weren't so clumsy and so sure I'd trip and have us both tumbling right back down again. I don't know about Lily but I sure as heck don't want to have to climb up the stairs twice. Especially at this hour.
Slowly but surely we made it to my room. I laid her on the inside of the bed up against the wall and tucked her in. She fell asleep instantly but I never could sleep after something like that so I started to count horses. Yeah I know, everyone counts sheep but personally, I don't find sheep all that interesting. I don't want to fall asleep to the most boring creatures imaginable. I got up to horse number sixty-eight before finally dosing off.
Beep Beep Beep. Beep Beep Beep. Beep Bee-CRASH. I really need a new alarm clock. I've needed one for a while but I guess breaking it on the wall drives me to really go out and get one.
I got up out of bed to go take a shower before waking Lily up and making her breakfast. Charlie was already gone so I took my time in the shower letting the hot water sooth my aching muscles. Now, I love my little sis but I really can't wait until she stops having these nightmares. I finished up and went to go get up Lily.
"Lils. Time to wake up." She just groaned and rolled over. "Lily." I repeated. Shaking her never helped but i figured this once wouldn't matter. "Lily Elizabeth Swan. You wake up right now or you're going to school in your PJs and with an empty belly." That got her up. She bolted for the bathroom and started to wash up while I headed toward the kitchen.
The bacon was just finishing up when she came down and hopped into a chair at the table. I placed the plate infront of her and she instantly went into "Charlie mode". That's what I call it when she eats. They eat exactly the same. All they see around them is that plate of food. Nothing else matters. "Bella, I'm finished!" she sang. "Okay go put your plate in the sink and get your school bag, we need to leave."
I got into the semi-crowded parking lot after dropping Lily off at Forks Elementary searching for my four best friends. Alice, Rosalie, Jasper, Emmett, and I have known eachother since kindergarten. We decided to be friends after the first week of school and let me tell you: once we put those bugs in our pants there really was no turning back.
We're all seniors in high school now. Rosalie and Jasper are blonde-haired blue-eyed twins. But that's the only relations in our little group. Jasper and Alice are dating as are Rose and Emmett. Normally people'd think I'm the fifth wheel but I'm really not. They don't treat me that way and in all honesty, I don't really mind not having a significant other.
I met up with the gang in the cafeteria at our regular table.
"Hey Bella" they all said in unison.
"OMG Bells, guess what guess what guess what?!" Alice was pretty much bouncing up and down in her seat.
"What Alice? What?" Sarcasm dripped like venom in my voice. Of course that made Alice glare at me.
"Don't mock me Bella this is good news!"
"Tyler's having a party at his house tonight! His parents are out of town for the weekend! Oh Bells this is so exciting! We'll dress you up and everything!"
"Are all of you going?" I asked everyone else. They all nodded their heads and looked just as excited as Alice.
"Okay I'll go. But Alice, I am dressing myself. You can double check but I'm picking out the initial outfit. Got it?" She pouted a little but agreed.
"Besides," Rosalie said "You'll get to meet the new kid."
"I didn't know we had a new kid here." I looked around the cafeteria trying to find a face I didn't recognize.
"He's not here yet. He starts on Monday but Tyler saw him at the park the other day and invited him to the party."
"Ah. Well, that's cool." I shrugged. I was playing nonchalant but I was actually really excited to see this new kid. We haven't had a new student here since the beginning of time. I mean come on. This is Forks. Nobody in their right mind would move to the wettest place in the Continental U.S.
I had no idea what was going on the whole day. I just kept trying to picture different kinds of people in my mind. What he a stuck up snob? Proper? Emo? A skater boy? Who knows?
But before I knew it was infront the mirror in my room after making dinner for Charlie and Lily getting dressed. I had on a kind of shredded denim skirt with purple leggings, a black tank-top, and my very comfortable black converse shoes. I was finishing up my make-up when my phone rang and, of course, it was Alice.
"Hello?" I answered.
"Hey Bells, we're on our way."
"Okay just honk when you're outside."
Not even five minutes after hanging up there was a horn blaring from the curb. I said my good-byes to Lily and Charlie and ran out the door. I stopped five feet from Emmett's jeep to turn in a complete circle while Alice scrutinized my outfit. That's what I love about having Alice as a friend. You never went anywhere without looking your best.
She finally gave a nod and I hopped in the back with her and Jasper. "So Bella, you ready to party?" Emmett asked. "Oh hell yeah! Wooohooo!" Everyone laughed as we accelerated down the drive.
Oh I am so ready to party.
