A/N: OK so new story. I think I am going to be working on this and Slaughter House Five for right now and go back to War and Peace later, I have kind of hit a brain fart there. OK so basic idea. Bella and her mother, who is a stripper, just moved to Forks. Bella becomes friends with the "freaks" of the school and is tortured by the "cool" kids because of her mother's job. Can the social classes of the school keep away love? Rated M for language, lemons, and crazy situations. OOC, Lemons, All Human. OK so let me know what you think. This idea worked its way into my head while I was at work.
I had just brought the last of my boxes into my poor excuse of a room. I have seen prison cells that are bigger then this room, and yes I have seen prison cells at the age of 17. I started up unload my boxes and try and create a feeling of home in this rainy state.
"How are things coming Bella?"
"Fine Renee. Are you off to a fun night at work?"
"Well Bella someone had to put food on the table. I do not see you working?"
"We just moved here. If you did not uproot me AGAIN from Florida then I would still have a job."
"Florida was not good for us Bella you know that."
"No Florida was not good for YOU because YOU got cough hooking, AGAIN. God Renee I should not have to bail you out of jail for that shit."
"My name is Mom you know."
"You have not been a MOM in years so just go to work and I will see you whenever. Thanks again for the AWSOME childhood memories."
"Fucking CUNT," my mother screamed and slammed my door shut. Well we are off to an awesome start in Forks, Washington. I can not wait to see what else this place has in store for me.
I studied the room trying to decide where I wanted to put everything. My full size bed was in the corner with my small night stand next to it. On the other side of the room was a small desk followed by two large book cases that I needed to fill up with my packed away books. I had two dressers and a TV on the other wall with a small closet.
After three hours of setting up my room and trying to make this place seem like home I passed out in my bed. Tomorrow was going to be my first day of school so I wanted to be well rested.
I heard laughter and the crashing of boxes at 4 AM. I guess my mother is done work. I got up and opened my door. I saw my mother sitting on the floor of the kitchen laughing her ass off. I looked around to make sure there were no men with her and there weren't so I went to go and help her up.
"Did you drive like this?"
"How else am I to get home Bella?"
"Cabs work. You know if you get another DUI you are loosing your license for good."
"Are you trying to kill my buzz Bella because it is totally working?"
I grabbed Renee from under the arm pits and pulled her up. Once she was standing up I walked her to her room and placed her on the bed. "I am going back to sleep I have to go to school. You should do the same. I am going to need money for food shopping and lunch so give me all the money you made tonight," I said to Renee holding out my hand.
She handed me a wade of money. I counted it all out twice, 300, I gave her 100 for her to use this week on whatever she wanted. The rest of the money would go to food and bills. I have been paying the bills since I was in the 2nd grade and learned how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide.
"You are such a good daughter Bella," Renee mumbled as she passed out on the bed.
I got to sleep another hour before I had to get up for school. I crawled into my bed and dreamed about living in a world where I did not have to deal with Renee. Once I got into my perfect dream house I was awoken by a loud buzzing sound. I reached my hand out and smacked the alarm clock.
I rolled out of bed and went in the bathroom. It was still gross and dingy looking. I needed to clean this place when I was done school today. I also needed to look for a job because I had been saving up for years for moving out when I turned 18. I was about a year away. I had just turned 17 last month.
When I was done my shower I went into the kitchen to get the coffee brewing for me. I went into my bed room and grabbed some clothes. I decided on a pair of tight blue jeans and an old Rainbow Brite shirt I bough three years ago. I grabbed a black front zipper hoodie that I had and threw my book bag over my shoulder.
I filled my reusable mug with black coffee and was on my way off to school. It was about 5 blocks from my apartment so walking was no big deal to me. It was not raining but it was cloudy. I was going to need to get use to this or I was going to have a sever case of seasonal depression. I saw cars filled with kids going in the direction I was walking so I knew I was heading the right way.
The cars were all very new and very expensive. Well it was good to know that I was going to totally stand out here. I was hoping since this is a small town I would fit in better, but no such luck. I turned into the parking lot and walked to the first building that had a sign which read OFFICE. That was a good place to start.
I had called up the school three days ago to let them know that I was transferring. I walked into the small and warm building. I talked to the little old lady at the front desk, "Hello my name is Isabella Swan I just transferred here from Florida."
"Swan? Dear are you Charlie's daughter?"
"Not that I know of, who is that?"
"The police chief. Here I found your papers," the little lady handed me my packet of papers I would need and asked me to bring back the one paper signed by the end of the day. I smiled and left the little building.
The parking lot was full when I was leaving the building. I went to find my homeroom for the year. The comment the little woman made about me being this Charlie's daughter was weird. I guess I have the same name as this guy. I would probably meet him, with all the trouble my mother gets into.
I went into my homeroom and got the teacher to sign the paper. I sat down at a desk and opened up the school given planner and looked at how long the school day way. As I started to look over my schedule I heard someone clear their throat over me. I looked up and saw a girl with spiky black hair.
"That is MY seat," she told me with a soprano voice.
"Oh I am sorry it is my first day," I said and got up to sit next to some tall tan boy. He was cute with the face of a 20 year old man.
"Hey do not pay any attention to Alice is must be on her rag," the tan boy said, screaming at the end. "My name is Jacob Black, you must be Isabella Swan."
"Just Bella," I softly told him.
"OK Just Bella let me see what classes you have," he said and stole my paper.
"Well lucky for you we have four classes together and lunch," he informed me flashing a wonderful set of pure white teeth.
Jacob was a very attentive boy the more I looked at him. You could tell how tall he was by just sitting down, easily over 6 foot. He had long glossy ink black hair which was pulled back with a rubber band. His arms were the size of my head and his skin was a wonderful shade of tan.
"Well I guess that is a good thing," I said with a batting of my eyes.
"Everyone eats lunch at the same time so I will show you my group of friends you look like the kind of person who would fit in with us."
"Thank you so much. Do we have first period together?"
"No but we are in rooms next to each other so I will show you how to get there."
It was easy talking to Jacob. I had never been able to make a friend this easy at any of my other 6 schools. The bell rang and I was up on my feet. Jacob took my arm and hooked it in his and we were off down the hall. I knew there was a ton of people staring at me because I was the new kid but I tried to brush it off.
Jake was talking about his friend Jasper when I spotted a student with bronze hair. I had never seen someone with that color hair. After a few seconds I was able to see his face. I almost stopped dead in my tracks. He was stunning. He had pale skin, high cheek bones, messy hair, and bright green eyes.
"Who is that?" I asked Jacob.
"Oh, that is Edward. He runs the school. He is the quarterback of the football team, class president, valedictorian, and a 100% dick."
"Oh he is THAT guy." I knew guys like him in every school I had been in. He was the person I was to steer clear of if I did not want my last year of school to be total hell.
"OK well this is your classroom. The guy over there with the shaggy blond hair is Jasper he is cool, sit with him. When you are done wait for me we have history together next," Jake told me pointing to the guy and he waved.
"Thanks," I told him and walked into the room. I sat down where I was told and smiled at the boy named Jasper.
"Howdy," he said offering his hand with a very noticeable southern accent.
"Hi, Bella," I told him shaking his hand.
"Jasper, but I guess Jacob already told you that."
"Yep," I finally noticed what Jasper was wearing, all black. I though it was a little weird but I just let it go. "So how is this class?" I asked Jasper.
Before he could answer I heard my name being called. I looked up and saw the teacher looking at me. I forgot to check in with him. I went to the front of the room and gave him my paper to sign. He told me to return to my seat.
My face was all red when I sat down. I hated being called out on the spot. I heard two people laughing I looked over and saw the girl Alice from this morning and a tall blond. I rolled my eyes and looked over at Jasper who gave me a smile. I smiled back at him.
I hated math so the first class of the ay just dragged on. I was happy to finally hear the bell ring. Jasper walked with me to the door. Standing in the door jam was Jacob waiting for me. I smiled at his face. There was just something about him which made me feel safe and happy.
"So how was your official first class at Forks High?"
"Well it was long," I admitted. I felt Jake put an arm around my shoulder but I let it go because he seemed like a good person.
"Well history is going to be a lot more fun because I am there," he told me flashing his pearly whites.
"You know I think you might be able to blind a person with those ultra white teeth. Is your dad a dentist?"
Jacob and Jasper both started laughing. "I get that all the time, and the answer is no."
We left the one building and walked down two more building to a larger one. Jacob held the door open for me and I walked into the warm building. Jacob led me over to the second door on the right and again he held the door open.
"So since it is still early in the year we are just starting to talk about World War I. If you need help catching up let me know," Jacob said with a wink.
"We covered WWI when I was a junior, but thanks."
Jake smiled and took his seat. I went to the professor who was a very young and beautiful looking woman. She signed my paper and instructed me what seat to take. I was given the desk in the back left hand corner of the classroom. I started to skim threw the book trying to see what we would be leaving. In Florida we covered U.S. History our sophomore and junior years of school. Our senior year was used to talk about current events and like the last 20 years. (A/N: I have no idea if that is true, so don't get mad if you are from Florida and I am wrong.)
The bell rang and the final student came into the classroom. It was the boy Edward from this morning. He took a seat right next to me. He looked over to where I was sitting and skimmed me up and down then faced front.
As much as I tried to advert my eyes from him it was impossible. He was handsome. He was beyond handsome. I was not able to find a weird which described his looks. About half way threw the class he turned to look at me. Being the dumb ass that I am I gave him this goofy smile. His eyes widened and he turned his head to stifle a laugh. Well there goes any chance of dating him, good job Bella.
When class was over I quickly grabbed all of my stuff and tried to run over to Jacob where I knew it would be safe. Well as I walked up the isle I tripped over my foot and fell face first into the floor. My face went bright red and I heard a guttural laugh. I looked over to see Edward standing with a very large guy with short curly dark hair. They were both pointing and laughing together.
I felt a pair of warm arms wrap around me. I was lifted from lying on the floor to a standing position. Jake was at my side helping me out. "Do not worry about them, they are just dicks."
"Thanks that makes me feel a little bit better," I lied and left the classroom with Jacob. Jake and I had the next two classes together. He tried to let me know what we were doing in the classes, but it was easy to pick up. Since it was mid October most schools had not gotten a lot of work done. After Spanish it was time to eat lunch. I was hungry since I did not have much for breakfast.
We walked into the crowed lunch room together. Jake kept a hand on my lower back and led me over to the lunch line. "So do you play sports or want to join any clubs?"
"I am not the sports or clubs kinds of girl."
"Well that is good to know. My friends and I are not into them either."
"So am I going to meet more of these friends?"
"Yep there are just a few more members of our group, and then you will know everyone."
I grabbed a slice of pizza and a can of soda. When I went to go and pay Jake insisted. After we argued for a few seconds I finally gave in. It seemed like I was not going to win that one. He pointed me to the table that I should go and sit at.
"Hey everyone this is Bella, Bella this is the crew," Jake said sitting down and motioned for me to sit next to him.
I looked at the tan girl who was sitting there. She rolled her eyes and me and slid down. I smiled and thanked her. She muttered something that I missed.
"Chill out Leah," Jake said to her. OK her name was Leah.
"Hi I an Angela," a girl with Lisa Loeb glasses and long brown hair said.
"Hi," I responded.
I was reintroduced to the few people I had met that day, Jasper, Rosalie, and Quil. I also got to know a few new people like, Angela, Leah, Embry, and Garrett. All of them seemed very nice, except Leah, she disliked me right away. I started to see what group of people I was placing myself into "the freak" was the best way to describe them. All of them seemed to beat to their own drum and did not like the sports kids.
I had never placed myself into a group in my old schools. I always found one friend and suck with them. Here I was openly welcomed into a group which was nice. I knew people would have my back if it was needed.
"UGH, do you think that they can spend lunch eating like normal people and not dry humping," I heard Rosalie hiss. Everyone called her Rose so I was going to stick with that.
"Well Rose that is how they work, you should know that. They can not form meaningful relationships, so they just fuck instead," Jasper told his twin sister. When you looked at them you could defiantly tell that they were related.
I looked over to the table that they were talking about. I saw Edward with a girl who had long strawberry blond hair. Then there was the big guy who laughed at me with a blond. Also Alice was over there talking to two different guys. I did not know any of the other kids there.
"I heard that Alice and Edward got cough making out in the hall ways," Leah said.
Everyone turned to look at her. A lot of their faces dropped. Finally Jake spoke up, "They are brother and sister."
"Well that is what Jessica told me."
"Jessica said that because Edward keeps on denying her. When is she going to learn that a band geek can not date someone who is on the football team?"
"Why is that?" I asked.
"It's just the unwritten rules of the schools social status. I mean over there at that table is the basic "popular crowd" then over there is the "geeks" and we are the "freaks." There is tons of little splinter cells among the groups, but that is the basic break down. It is very unlikely and looked down on if you date outside of your group."
I nodded my head understanding what he was saying. Since I was never really in a "click" before I did not know the rules of them. I looked across the room at Edward who was looking at me. I felt my face turn red and I looked away. There was no way for us to date because we are from two different social standings.
The bell rang and lunch was over. Jake took my trash and threw it away for me. I smiled at what a gentlemen he was. He wrapped his arm around my shoulders again and showed me to my biology class. We did not have that class together, but we did have gym together which was the last class of the day.
I went and got my paper signed which was a repetitive event of the day. The teacher showed me to my desk and I sat at the lab table alone. It was nice to finally be alone because I was on an overload over everyone that I had met today. I started to write down a list of things that I was going to need to do when school was over.
When the bell rang I slipped the piece of paper under my notebook and saw the last person come into the classroom.
"Late again Mr. Cullen?"
"It will not happen again," the beautiful boy said.
"That is right. You will be meeting me in detention to ensure that. I am pretty sure that I can talk to your coach and let him know."
"Whatever you want Mr. Banner," the handsome boy said and sat down next to me.
"You're the new girl, right?" he asked me while staring at me with his large green eyes.
I nodded my head not wanting to get in trouble.
"You can talk, Mr. Banner will not yell at you."
I looked at him quickly then back up front.
Edward ripped a paper loudly from his notebook and scribbled something down and then passed it to me. My eyes read over the paper.
So I saw you hanging out with the freaks, not a good group.
I looked over at him and rolled my eyes. He took the paper back and wrote.
I could get you in with my group if you wanted your hot enough.
I laughed at his lame comment. He wrote again.
Well you do not have to be a bitch you know.
I turned to him and smacked him right across his face. You could hear the crack of his skin under my hand through out the whole classroom. Everyone turned to face us. Edward sat there and held his hand to his face. I turned and faced front acting like nothing happened.
Edward grabbed the paper and faced front. I did not know what I was more upset about, the fact that he called me a bitch, or the fact that he had insulted my new friends. I sat in the seat and mentally got madder and madder as the dumb teacher kept on nagging on and on about cell reproduction. I had learned this lesson about seven other times, if these kids do not know these already then they are too dumb to function in society.
When I bell rang signaling class was done I grabbed my books trying to make it to the door before the angry Edward was going to say something. All during class he kept on looking over at me with evil eyes. I felt his hand wrap around my wrist.
"We need to talk."
"I have nothing to say to you Edward."
"You can not think that you are going to smack me and then act like it never happened."
"You called me a bitch because I did not want to be your personal charity case. What do we really need to talk about?"
"OK that was wrong of me. I am sorry I called you a bitch. Can we please talk?"
"No I am done here," I told him and roughly pulled my wrist away from him. Edward's hand let go and I stormed out of the classroom. I saw Jacob standing there waiting for me. I smiled at the copper colored man and let him lead me over to my next class.
I did not have to change for gym since it was my first day and I was glad. I was not given my mother hand eye coordination. I normally fell all over the place instead of staying upright. I watched Jake and some of the other people I had meet during the day run around playing volleyball. When they were done Jake came over and sat with me on the bleacher.
"So what was up with you and Edward?"
"Nothing at all."
"He looked pretty pissed Bella," Jake said sounding concerned.
"Do not worry about it Jake, I am fine."
"Do you have plans for after school?"
"I just needed to swing by like a Wal-Mart or something like that."
"Well the closest one is about an hour away and I do not think that you wanna walk there. I will take you."
"I do not want to inconvenience you Jake."
"It would be my pleasure, plus my dad would be happy if I bough some stuff."
"OK. Thank you."
"Come on lets get out of here. Do you need to go to your locker?"
Jake put an arm around my shoulder and we were off to the parking lot. I did not know what kind of car that he had. I saw our lunch table standing out three cars in the parking lot. The girl Leah who was kind of stand offish was leaning against an older red car.
"Leah off the car," Jake called to her.
"Oh come on Jake, don't be a jerk just cause Bella's here."
"You know you are not allowed to sit on my car, its one of the rules, plus Bella and I are going out."
"Where you going?" Angela asked him.
"I wanna go!" the twins both called at the same time.
"OK well lets all get in the cars and go. I gotta swing by my house to pick up the list from my Dad."
Everyone started to climb into cars. Leah was standing at the front door of Jake's car. Jake got her a look and said, "In the back Leah."
"No its my spot. I am not giving it up for Bella."
"Jake I do not mind, its fine really."
Jake made an annoyed sound but let Leah win. I climbed into the back seat and I looked out my window. I saw Edward leaning against a silver car of his looking over at me with hatred in his eyes. His sister came up to him and said something. He spoke to her but never took his eyes off of me. Alice looked at me as we now drove past them.
"Where do you live Bella?" Jake asked me and knocked me out of Edward's green eye gaze.
"Um over in the Forks Apartments."
"Oh, OK. I know where they are."
I head Leah laugh and I saw Jake hit her. I know lived in a crappy apartment but I did not need to be laughed at because of it.
"Yeah Leah, if you think that funny then guess what my mom does for a living," I spat at her.
"What's that Bella?" Leah asked,
"She is a stripper and part time hooker, fun huh?"
The car was silent. I saw Jake look threw the review mirror with sadness in his eyes. There were the pity eyes that I get once people find out what my mom does. "Leah isn't that funny? I mean me living in crappy apartments is funny."
"I am sorry," Jake whispered.
"Well it was going to be figured out eventually so better from my mouth then another."
The car was silent. I was glad that I got Leah to shut up. I was a little mad at myself for telling so much so soon. I mean it would have eventually come out because well, high school boys go to strip clubs all the time. I did not want to deal with when people finally started to find out. When we pulled into the WalMart I let myself out and acted like nothing had happened.
I saw the twins getting out of their car with Angela. The other car was filled with a bunch of the guys who I had been making friends with. They all piled out and Angela came to talk to me. She was really sweet and quite. Jake stood on my other side and put an arm around me.
"Jake its fine OK. Lets ignore what happened and just go shopping," I said putting a fake smile on.
"What happened?" Jasper asked.
"Bella's mom is a stripper," Leah said.
"What?" Rosalie screamed.
"LEAH!" Jake yelled.
"What she told us I figured she wanted everyone to know now," Leah said and walked off.
"Wow we missed a lot," Quil said to one of the other boys.
I rolled my eyes and followed in Leah's foot steps to just get inside the building. Hopefully this conversation would just end. I grabbed a cart and placed my purse in there. Angela came up with me.
"Yeah I am OK. So what do you need?"
"Nothing much. I am more or less just coming for the fun of it. What do you need?"
"Everything we just moved and since we only have one car between us, we pack light. It is my job to buy the stuff we need."
"That is really sad. Have you though about getting emancipated?"
"Too much money, its just easier for me to wait out the last year."
"OK well this is cleaning stuff so you wanna start with that Bella?"
Angela and I went around the store to grab everything that you would need. It was nice having someone else to remind you of things that you forget about. Jake came with us for a little but he then went to cause a reckless with the rest of the guys.
"So what is your family like?" I asked Angela.
"Oh they are pretty normal, stay at home mom, working dad and twin brothers."
"I always wanted a sibling, but I am kind of glad that I never got one then I would have to take care of them."
Before Angela could talk again I heard my cell ring. I looked at the caller ID and saw it was Renee; well this was going to be fun. "Hello?" I asked after hitting the green button.
"Where the fuck are you?"
"Out buying the stuff we need for the house."
"Well a phone call would have been nice Bella, what if I was going to cook dinner?"
"You have not cooked dinner in three years."
"I am sick of your smart ass answers."
"Well I am sick of your job. Is this conversation done I am with people?"
"Whatever brat. I will be home late."
"Like always," I said and hung up the phone.
I smiled at Angela and acted like that was a normal conversation. Two hours and almost four hundred dollars later I had everything that we were going to need for awhile. Jake asked Leah to drive with the twins because I had so much stuff I needed room in the trunk. I knew they were going to talk about me in their car and I did not care.
Jake started up his car and we pulled onto the main road. "I am sorry she was such a bitch."
"Most girlfriends get mad when their boyfriend pays too much attention to another girl."
"Jake laughed, "We are not a couple. She wants to be, but it never seemed right to me. She is like a sister if anything."
"Oh, so you're single?"
"Good to know," I joked and looked out the window.
"So do you and your mother get along at least?"
"No, not at all. She does not seem to know her age."
"Well how about your father?"
"I have never met the man. My mom is from Nevada, Vegas. Well she started stripping at 17. She married one of her customers during a drunken stupor. Well after a week the guy left and it turned out she was pregnant. She got the divorce papers from the guy a year later. Since then we have moved around several times because she keeps on getting in trouble. She kept the guys last name because she though it would be best for me, plus Swan is an awesome stripper last name."
"WOW," was Jake's only response.
"Yep, my life is awesome."
Jake reached his one hand over and placed it on top of mine. "I promise to try and make things better."
"Thank you Jake."
A/N: OK real quick, this is a Bella Edward story, just a little Bella Jake in the beginning.
