Carousel- Jasper and Bella and Edward are the pair of three again, don't like it, don't read it. I like complicated stories and I love the relationship that happens to be a three way it's fascinating to me.
Life can be heaven and hell. Bella is the new girl at Forks High School (gee, I wonder where I got that idea?) Jasper and Edward are the most popular boys in school who have been waiting for a girl like Bella. If she takes them up on their offer she will be one lucky girl.
Although I have changed the characters around to suit my purposes, like they are all human and really 18 years old. I've added a few more characters because in Fan Fiction you can take shall we say liberties....
Chapters are named from the album Buckcherry 15 and any other title I deem appropriate from that awesome band. No real reason, it didn't inspire the story although I do freakin love Buckcherry.
Dur notice~~ I own nothing of the characters of Twilight, but I bet you can guess who does.
Story- Carousel, A story by Anadabyel
Chapter 1 Onset
My mom was an idiot.
Shit you'd think I had taken the Lord's name in vain when I told her I didn't want to try out for cheer leading. I just wanted to write. When a boy from school asked me to the prom and I turned him down she almost swallowed her tongue when she chocked on her beer after I told her.
"Are you crazy? A boy asks you out you go." That was her dating advice to me.
Never mind that I knew that boy was asking me as a dare from his friends because they needed to get laid by the end of the month or some motorcycle was going to be up for grabs. A moronic obsession with the the movie American Pie. Boys my age are morons.
I just ignored her and went to my haven. My bedroom. Where I could be surrounded by true heroines, Jane Eyre, Jo March, and Moll Flanders. To listen to my friends the Bronte sisters and William Shakespeare tell me there stories of strong and beautiful women.
Out of nowhere, my mom decided that getting married to some random guy she met at a party was a great idea, and I decided it was time to live with my displaced father in Forks Washington to finish high school. I wasn't giving anything up by moving there from Phoenix. I had no close friends and frankly my mother was useless.
That was my junior year and my final year at Mesa Verde High School in Phoenix, Arizona.
I actually liked my dad a lot. Although I'd only know him a few years. He was quiet like me and kind.
Apparently the wildest thing he ever did was date and impregnate my mom. They never got married.
Mom ran from him as soon as she found out she was pregnant and didn't tell Charlie about me until I was almost fourteen. She needed money when I was injured in a car accident that left me in the hospital for two weeks without health insurance.
Waking up in the hospital to a man who was telling me I was his daughter. How sorry he was for not finding me sooner and being a real father. He seemed devastated by the realization that he had a child and had never known. It broke my heart for him.
I felt truly loved by him.
As for Mommy Dearest Renee it didn't even occur to her to feel guilty. She's always been a bitch like that.
She just assumed that she had every right to act the way she did. To keep my father from me, and his only child from him. My father and I never discussed it, but disgust clouded our opinion of her.
Renee and I had a strained relationship anyway, and this just broke our relationship completely. She was never the person I thought she should be and I was never going to live up to her expectations of what she thought a daughter should be.
Charlie on the other hand was a good man I could see that right away, and physically it was like looking into a mirror when I saw him. All the features I could never place or recognize with my mother's family finally had their origin. I looked just like him. Large brown eyes, dark brown hair with a twinge of red in it and soft curls, a heart shaped face. It gave me a feeling a comfort and belonging I never had before. My mother with her light red hair and blue eyes with a narrow face, we didn't look like we related in the least.
After that Charlie and I spent a lot of time together. Summer vacations any school breaks and holidays I was with my father.
He mostly came to Phoenix to see me, or we would meet in California were his family, now my extended family lived. I only went to Forks once before I moved there. It was pretty uneventful for me. I met some of Charlie's friends from the Reservation and his deputies.
Finally after my mom's moronic wedding and the last day of my junior year, I set out to move to Forks.
Charlie waited patiently for me as I walked down the tarmac to the baggage claim area. He seemed to so scared. I wasn't really sure what I should do, and then without warning her brought me into his chest and hugged me. It was tight and cumbersome but I never felt so loved and comfortable in my entire life. It felt like I had finally come home. We both started crying and stood there making people walk around us for who knows how long.
"You don't know how happy this makes me Bella." Charlie whispered into the top of my head.
"Me too dad. Me too." I sobbed into his chest. I decided I needed to break away from my pain in the ass demeanor and refer to him as dad. I had never called my mom anything but Renee, but calling him dad felt right and good.
"I love you little girl." He said when he pulled away to look into my eyes. We both were wishing he had been there when I was a little girl. We had both missed so much. Finally the feeling of being loved gave me something I never felt before, safe and confident.
We drove the next two hours from Seattle to Forks in almost complete silence. It wasn't uncomfortable, it felt secure. We just kept looking at each other and smiling.
My bedroom had been my dad's home office but he quickly tried to make it livable for me and mostly for what he thought a girl would like. He had it painted pink, which I hated and he quickly agreed to paint it again. Dad and I decided to do it together. A nice brown and a light blue, amazingly they were favorite colors of both of ours.
I stayed with him in the living room late into the evening every night my first month. We just talked about my life and his life and all the little things we should have known about one another.
That first month in Forks was nice and comfortable. I wondered around town and got lost. I didn't panic. How one gets lost in this small of a town I don't know but I managed. I kept to myself, but I always enjoyed watching people, so I was content.
I had found a friend in one of my dad's best friends children. Jacob Black is a year younger than me but was mature and sweet. We enjoyed spending time together. He introduced me all over La Push and even showed me the town of Forks. He was able to do what many had not or I was unwilling to let, he got me come out of my shell and make me laugh. He was sweet and I finally felt like I had a friend.
When I explained to my dad about my getting lost he was compelled to arm me. Pepper spray. If the condiment aerosol was necessary I was hoping to already be down the street and calling 911. But I digress.
"How much you wanna bet I spray myself in the face?" I told Jacob on the phone.
"I am staying up wind from you from here on out. Damn, of course if he gave you a gun you would have already shot yourself in the foot." Jacob dead panned back.
My old high school started it's summer late and Forks High School started it's school year earlier, so my summer was at a close beginning the next day.
It would be nice to get into a school habit, but tonight Jacob wanted to take me to Port Angeles and spend our last night before my first day at school enjoying ourselves. He was wavering on coming to FHS or staying on the reservation.
When we got to town we went a little Italian restaurant to eat dinner before we went to a movie where he recognized some kids from Forks at two other tables across the dining room.
There were nine of them. Four at one table and five at another. Fighting and arguing with one another. They genuinely seemed to dislike one another.
Jacob smiled when the table of five would rag on the table of four. I looked at him questioning his laughter and Jacob started to tell me about the people occupying the tables just feet away.
"Okay, the table with four, that's James' crew, he's an idiot. James is the one with the pony tail, his girlfriend is the redhead her name is....shit I can't remember, anyway their two friends Laurent, the black guy, and Mike Newton the other blond guy who looks seriously pissed. That's just how he looks all the time." Jacob started laughing at the look on Mike's face.
"The other table is Edward and Jasper's crew, them I can stomach a lot better. They at least have personalities and can kick some serious ass. " I couldn't help but smile at him. For some reason he didn't want to admit he admired these boys. But it was evident in his eyes how much he liked them.
When I looked over at that table full of boys, I was dumbfounded suddenly by two of them. One with auburn literally almost bronze colored hair it was so messy it would hold a title of sex hair he was devastating looking, and a blond with curly locks surrounding the face of an angel.
Oh dear God, if I could have I would have swallowed my own tongue. I had an instant bad feeling in the pit of my stomach about my reaction to these two boys.
Luckily Jacob seemed to just think I was more fascinated by their interaction with the other table.
"It's stupid because they are all jocks and play on the same fuckin football and basketball team," Jacob shook his head and continued his chuckles. "They hate each other. They all play the same sports, all the same girls are after them, they act more like each other than anyone else. But they hate each other."
"Why?" I asked still confused at all the interactions between the two groups.
"Well I think, do not quote me, James tried to get with one of Edward and Jasper's girls."
"Their Girls? What are they pimps?" I tried my hand at sarcasm, Jacob was not helping me understand anything.
Give me the names of the boys at the other table, I wanted to scream at him. Who was the blond one! Now! Who is one with the auburn hair! Now! I wanted to ask but I didn't want to piss Jacob off.
He looked up at me shocked. Apparently my sweet personality couldn't possibly understand what a pimp was.
Good lord, seriously?
"No. I think it was Edward's sister or something." He drawled out his answer. "The guys at the other table are Edward, he's the one who is wearing green." Not only was he wearing green but his eyes were the most gorgeous green I had ever seen.
Jacob couldn't say anything about their looks without giving up his hold on his heterosexual bias the fact that the boys were also unbelievably beautiful was not going to go unnoticed by me. That was the real reason the boys at the other table hated them. Ordinary versus inhumanly handsome. At least two of them were.
"Who are the rest of them," I demanded, he cocked an eyebrow at me. I wanted to just ask about the blond at the end of the table the one who barley spoke. "Jealous? I have to know these things before I start school tomorrow." I smiled innocently at Jacob. He didn't buy it but grinned and shrugged.
"Alright, these are not the guys you wanna hook up with Ms. Swan." He leaned into talk lower to me. "But, Garrett and Emmett are the other brunettes, Emmett's the huge guy." I nodded, he continued, "Ben is the short guy, and Jasper is the blond one not getting involved."
Oh thank you! I screamed in my head.
Jasper. Edward. Jasper. Edward. Two names I burned into my brain.
As if he heard my mental mantra Jasper looked up and then over to our table, and directly into my eyes.
As if frozen I could not look away from those smoky blue eyes.
Jasper looked towards Jacob and lifted his chin in recognition and then back to me. Jacob returned the gesture. I was suddenly hyper aware of my inability to stay invisible.
With that exchange the other members of Jasper's table all looked toward Jacob and me.
"Hey Jake, man, how you doin?" Emmett stood and started walking over to us.
Emmett was huge! He resembled a grizzly bear, only with a sweet smile and dimples.
I noticed that Jasper had leaned back in his chair so he could see around Emmett to see me.
"Fuckin, Black you on a date with a white girl?" The boy named James yelled over everyone's head in the restaurant.
I was immediately furious for Jacob. Although, James' table broke out guffaws, Jasper's friends were immediately defensive and apparently had every intention of protecting Jacob. So was I.
Racist piece of shit. I thought.
Without even realizing it I took a piece of garlic bread and flung it at James' head hitting him square in the face.
The shock on James' face was priceless. But the hysterical laughter from all the boys from Edward and Jasper's table including Jacob made me smile at my immature behavior. Jacob just leaned over to me.
"You are too funny Swan." Jacob said.
While all this was taking place James was furious and so was his girlfriend who was throwing daggers at me while they started to get up to leave. Edward and Jasper's friends all broke out into laughter and applause for me.
Emmett had come around to my side of the table lifting my arm and checking it at if he were a doctor.
"Baby, where has this arm been?" He asked me with a smile and a wink. "We need this little angel on the field with us." He yelled to his friends at the other table.
My face must have blushed about four different shades of red when the rest of the table came over sit by Jacob and me.
Pulling up chairs and laughing at the retreating James' crew I was suddenly in a totally alien experience. The center of attention.
"Who is this lovely lady you are with Jake?" Edward asked, winking at me.
"You guys, I would like to meet Bella Swan, the newest senior at Forks High School, also, the only child of our illustrious police chief." Jacob said gesturing to me and resting his hand on my shoulder, squeezing it slightly. He would know this was horribly uncomfortable for me.
In the past few months Jacob had been trying in vain to get me to come out of my shell. He said me being so shy made no sense. He never explained his reasoning for his opinion.
Jasper had pushed Emmett over slightly and had taken up seating directly to my right.
"Where are you from, beautiful?" Jasper asked. Can a voice drip with honey?
"Um, Phoenix." I bit my lip in my shyness. That got a reaction I wasn't expecting. I actually heard one of the boys say , "damn" although I wasn't sure which one it was. Me biting my lip or the fact I said Phoenix. Jasper raised his eyebrow and glanced down at my mouth. I looked back to Jacob who had apparently been having a silent conversation with Edward and was nodding. I wasn't sure if I should be uncomfortable or what. But uncomfortable I was, in dripping heaps. I was the center of attention and the constant bombardment of questions from these boys was making me dizzy.
From what was my school like, and how is it being the chief's daughter to do you have a boyfriend and if so are you breaking up with him soon?
Once I answered the boyfriend question which came from Edward, a whole new slew of questions to my past love life came into play. Since I had none it should have been a short question and answer session. It wasn't. They basically just asked me the same questions in a different way ten times each.
Also, making me uncomfortable for a whole different reason was Jasper seemed to be moving closer to me, and Edward looking at me with a penetrating look with his green eyes from across the table.
This was making my thighs tingle.
Frankly I didn't know my thighs could do that. I know now that my lip biting was either a problem or a weapon to be used when not so many males were around apparently. Every time I did it because of embarrassment it gained the same groans from my audience, which made me blush and made them all chuckle. Including Jasper who was looking from my mouth to my eyes constantly.
When his eyes would rake across my face, it felt like a light caress.
Finally, the restaurant was closing and this meant Jacob could take me home, we had obviously missed the movie.
Being outside actually felt good even though it had started raining.
"Jake, man you should go get your car and not make Bella walk in the rain." Jasper suggested to Jacob.
Jacob did as Jasper suggested like it was an order.
"Oh, I'll be fine." I said a little to late for Jacob to hear. Jasper leaned with cool ease, one foot bent at the knee holding him at a comfortable angle against the side of the building and Edward stood next to him with his hands in his pockets also looking fresh faced and cool. I on the other hand felt like an animal in zoo exhibition.
"I'll go get my SUV man." Emmett said and started walking away. Garret and Ben following closely into the rain. I was standing under the awning with Edward and Jasper. These had to be the two most beautiful boys I have ever laid eyes on.
"So what does your schedule look like tomorrow Bella?" Edward asked with a crooked smile. I doubt I blushed until I saw the smile. Which made his smile widen and a grin happen upon Jasper's mouth. I so unbelievably uncomfortable from the attention I was receiving from these two it was disconcerting and I was forgetting how to talk.
"Bella?" Edward asked again.
"Yeah?" I questioned.
"What classes do you have?" He asked again.
"Oh I don't know, I got my schedule a couple weeks ago, but I had taken so many of the classes they needed to re-do it, and getting me into advanced ones." Finally, can Bella brain fart later? Away from the hotties.
"Yeah, so you're in advanced?" Jasper asked with a devastating grin still plastered on his face, he was leaning up against the wall looking like epitome of relaxation. God he was cool. Edward stood there with a crooked grin plastered on his face. God he was adorable.
"Um, yeah." Surprisingly, although one would not know by the fact that I cannot speak coherently.
"So are we, we'll probably have some classes with you." Edward said pointing between himself and Jasper.
"Oh." Was my ultra brilliant response, with a nod. Well I didn't sound advanced that was for sure.
They didn't seem to mind, because I bit my lip again and blushed. Both of them smiled at me and then at each other.
I started to hear the words that Jacob had said to me earlier in the evening, that these were boys I didn't want to hook up with. Jacob needed to shut the heck up.
Because I did, so bad.
I knew at this moment he was also so right.
I was so done. Jacob thankfully pulled up in that moment and they both went for the passenger door, it was Edward that got it. I gave them a quick wave and heard as I closed the door, "see you tomorrow Bella." I had no idea which one said it, but I really didn't care. Their voices were singing in my head.
Riding back with Jacob with Emmett's SUV following behind closely Jacob was trying so hard not to say anything.
Then Jacob suddenly started laughing.
"What!" I asked shocked. His laughing sounded more like a cackle.
"You are so in trouble Swan! I can do nothing to help you." He exclaimed.
"What are you talking about Jacob!"
"Two! Not one but TWO of the three biggest players at your school want you! It ain't no joke Bella. They want you." Jacob smiled at me with complete mischief dancing in his eyes.
"I don't understand what you're talking about Jacob." I was so happy about the revelation, a least I wasn't crazy feeling like this, but I wanted to at least keep up the illusion that I still wanted to be a good girl.
"Oh shit, Bella!" He was laughing so hard he started to swerve the car slightly veering off the road.
I screamed. Jacob laughed even harder.
"Jasper Whitlock and Edward Cullen!" Jacob was shaking his head and laughing. Still driving like an idiot.
"I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about! And Jacob Black if you don't watch the damn road I'm gonna make a citizens arrest. You're driving like a drunk!" I was furious at Jacob at this point.
He couldn't stop laughing. I was hoping I would just make it home alive at this point. Whether or not two boys liked me didn't matter. I was scared to death by Jacob's inability to drive right.
He seemed to remember something and stopped laughing abruptly.
"I think they both have girlfriends though." He said out loud, mostly to himself I thought.
"So I'm just making enemies left and right aren't I?" I was a little shocked.
I left the house today. Apparently that was my first mistake. I didn't care that James hated me or his idiot girlfriend, but the unknown haters scared me.
Jacob was still lost in his thoughts but fortunately still talking out loud.
"I think Jasper has two girlfriends but neither one goes to this school, but Tanya, that could be a problem for you. She is in your class. A senior. But Emmett's girlfriend, she's Jasper's step sister and Edward's sister hate her." He looked over at me, "Tanya and Edward haven't been going out too long so I am not really sure how serious." Jacob finished.
Listening to Jacob was like watching Fox New Network. So disturbing and yet so hard to turn away from. Like a car wreck. My life was suddenly a car wreck.
"I am not going out with boys that have girlfriends, especially if it's plural!"
"Oh Bella. You have no idea how you are going to own that school now! I am gonna ask my dad if I can transfer from the Rez!"
"That's not funny Jacob Black, if you are trying to scare me it's worked!" I said, pouting.
"Alright, Bella," Jacob was calming himself down, finally he thought I deserved an answer. "This is so cool for me you have no idea. I know this kind of stuff is like moronic to you Bella, but being in the cool clique at school is actually a real honor. Jasper dates casually, that's why all his girlfriends go to other schools or are in college. Edward only started dating Tanya, because, well she kind of trapped him after a one time hook up. She scared the shit out of him, so just to keep her on a shorter leash he agreed to date, you know, her. Exclusively."
Jacob eyed me, gaging my reaction. I must have looked shocked. I felt like throwing up. The number of girls who were going to want to kick my ass within the next twelve hours was kind of staggering.
He took a deep breath and then continued the details of Jasper and Edward's lives in a town called Forks which was starting to become my nightmare.
"James is a douchbag. It is Jasper, Edward, and Emmett who run the school." He looked over at me, he sounded like a child with his excitement. "But James is a wanna be, he can't even play that good. Anything that good."
I nodded. How did we start talking about James?
"Edward's dad is the chief at the hospital, a real amazing surgeon. They moved here about four years ago and he hooked up with Jasper and Emmett. Emmett is a lifer here at Forks, but Jasper moved here about a year before Edward from Texas. So obviously being from Texas sports is a hot one."
I really wasn't sure how this was so obvious.
But I wasn't going to ask a question not yet. I couldn't believe how fast the drama of high school became interesting to me, and I hadn't even seen the inside of the school yet.
"Emmett has had a steady girlfriend all four years, Rosalie Hale, she is Jasper's step sister, that is how Jasper ended up moving here. His mom and Rosalie's dad got married. Anyway, their cool people. Rose is, I actually think she'll like you. It'll be nice for her to be able to have someone take some of the pressure of being the prettiest girl in school off her." Jacob was talking so fast I almost missed most of his words.
"Bella, two of the most popular guys in school have hard on's for you, and you still don't realize how pretty you are?" He asked sounding slightly disgusted with my response. Oh really, well my my.
I had never really been that impressed with my looks. I thought I was cute, that was pretty much it.
Finally we made it to my driveway, Emmett's SUV had followed us the whole way and slowed down slightly as it drove past us as I was getting out. I watched the break lights as it went down the road.
"Okay Swan," I leaned back into Jacob's cab to face him. "Dress really pretty tomorrow. I am seriously going to transfer over here to watch this unfold. This is better than anything I could have dreamed up." I rolled my eyes at him and slammed his car door with a little more force than necessary.
I hate sixteen year-olds.
I went into the house to see my dad had waited up for me. I smiled at him and he returned the smile. This was the real reason I came here, the rest was just going to be frosting. I got to be a real daughter for the first time in my life.
My dad stood up and gave me hug before I even had a chance to get my coat off.
" Hey dad." I said as he squeezed me to his chest.
"So, did you have fun sweetie?"
"Yeah, I met some boys from school that Jacob is friends with and apparently because of this Jacob is transferring to Forks High." I said a bit sardonically.
Dad just smiled. He would get carried away just looking at me.
It was sweet and annoying. I headed upstairs. I tried laying down in bed.
Sleeping wasn't really an option.
I was a nobody.
I knew that wasn't true. I knew my father loved me and Jacob was thrilled by my presence. But why would these two popular boys like me?
I got out of bed and went to the bathroom, where we a had a full length mirror.
I decided it was time to examine the goods.
Well I'm short. Or we could say petite.
Brown hair that hangs like a rag. Or we could day chestnut brown with waves and long sexy hair.
I had boring brown eyes. Or one could say chocolate colored eyes and I have really great eyelashes. Hey would you look at that. Seriously, I had no idea they were that long. My eyelashes I mean. I practiced batting them and looking through them. Using my hair as a weapon too. It's not the like the cheerleaders don't practice their moves. No body can be that cool without lessons. Well except maybe Jasper and Edward.
Oh no back on track missy.
I had a pretty cute body. I took off my pajamas and panties and looked at my naked form.
I was skinny, no lets go with lithe like. My breasts were pretty big for my weight. Those things had a life all their own if I didn't wear a good bra. They never stopped moving, Another thing I could use for my advantage. My legs were long considering I was "petite".
Yeah, I needed to start finding better words for describing me and my body.
God, doing this for just a few minutes actually made me feel better.
"You, Bella Swan, are a freakin hotty." I said to my naked reflection. The more I say the more I might actually believe it too.
Holy shit! Did that girl just hit James with garlic bread?
I spun around and looked at the pretty girl sitting with Jacob Black. Fuck we all did.
Damn. Please do not be dating Jacob Black. He's too young for you little Miss Too Fine.
Emmett as always made the first move to intimidate, but I didn't want him to scare this girl. What she did was off the hook perfect.
Emmett just grabbed Pretty Brown Eyes' arm and started talking to her. Look at that smile. She's blushing! Girls don't blush anymore, maybe nice girls do. But I haven't met one of them in a long ass time.
I looked over at Edward. My best friend, also known as "My Brother from Another Mother". He was just as shocked as me. A pretty girl who is also a "nice" girl. We practically sprinted to Jake's table.
Everybody talked at this poor girl at once. We did this shit on purpose to girls. It was the only way you could tell if they were lying when you first meet. Edward and I always stuck with the liars. They were easier to fuck and duck from. No guilt.
But we've been looking for this.
She bit her lower lip again. I think I must have groaned out loud. I looked over at Edward he was doing the same thing. Nice, shy, has no fucking idea how sexy she is, and she's got an underlying toughness to her. Edward and I nodded.
Well Miss Swan we've looking for you. I winked at her. Damn that blush.
We stood out in the rain waiting for Jake and Emmett. This was the opportunity to find out some more of our pretty little mystery Bella Swan.
It took her a few minutes but she finally told us about her class schedule. Thank God, she's smart.
She bit that lip again, me and Edward just looked at each other. This girl is too much.
Edward assisted our little beauty into Jake's car and we watched them drive away.
"Oh fuck!" Edward exclaimed.
"Don't get too excited she could have been full of shit." I answered back the non question.
"Bull shit, man, she's was perfect!" Edward wasn't letting this go. He'd been having more trouble with girls lately than I ever had.
A one night stand with the super slut Tanya which lead to three weeks of complete torture for the poor guy. Pregnancy scares didn't do anything to help our dislike of the slut population in the state of Washington. Edward even decided to date her just to placate her otherwise crazy delusions. He even told me he double bagged his dick when he fucked her, just to be on the safe side.
Girls like Tanya and Maria, my "girlfriend" were a dime a dozen. Pretty. Sure, until you got to know them. Then they became as ugly as their hearts. They acted like guys, fucking anything, to get what they wanted. Girls needed to be different then us. That was what made them better. But finding a good girl was like finding a fuckin needle in a haystack.
Edward was in love with the idea of Bella already. Sweet and pretty. Shy and smart.
Too good to be true. Was my opinion.
But we might just have to find out.
"So we gotta play this good with the guys." Edward said as Emmett was coming around the corner to get us. We had walked to the restaurant from the movie theater.
"You think this is the one, huh?" I shook may head and smiled.
"Come on, where the fuck were you for the past hour! She's perfect!" Edward was practically busting at the seems.
"Perfect? I don't believe in perfection anymore." I had to throw some logic on the fire. But Bella could be her. I had felt it too. I just needed to make sure.
"You got me hooked on this girl that didn't exist for two damn years. Now we've met her!" Edward insisted.
Both Edward and I are control freaks. We control everything around us. Straight lines and perfect circles. Life is better that way.
Two years ago we found out that both our father's were both screwing around on our mother's. My "dad" was just my step dad, but fuck that shit really pissed me off.
But Edward worshiped his dad Carlisle, and was devastated by the realization that his father was a douche. How could these guys humiliate our mother's like this?
Both Esme and Lilian were good women. Their husband's were jackasses.
Our mother's who were best friends, apparently had started evening the scores with our dad's. Becoming adulteresses. That fucked us both up even more. Our versions of female perfection had been our mother's, what boy doesn't totally worship his mom. Now they were like the men that broke them. That actually hurt worse. Our parents were now sluts and whores, just not getting paid for it.
Edward and me had been friends since his family was transferred to Fork's for his father's new job as chief at Forks Memorial hospital about 6 years ago. I had only lived her a couple years before Edward got here and I hadn't quite found my way. I was from Texas, and had an instant family with a step sister after most of my life with just me and my mom, Lilian.
Edward and I bonded over our love of sports and our versions of how life should be. We both wanted to follow in our father's footsteps. My step dad being my version of a father. I decided being a lawyer would be a good career choice and he seemed to love me for it. But he wasn't the man I thought he was. But I did want the power he had.
We both had our version of an ideal of a perfect girl. We liked the same type. Shy and sweet. We both liked brunettes. Nice girls were hard to come by, we discovered that even before high school. Girls were willing to do anything for a boyfriend. They were convinced that they needed one. That made no sense to either me or Edward.
Our little gang was made up of our sister's and our friends, nobody penetrated us. Our sister's were just as desperate as the other girls, so top keep them safe Edward and I both tried to get them with friends of ours. But Rose and our friend Emmett were made for each other so we weren't a pain in the ass for them getting together. They were easy.
Garrett was another story. Alice had developed a crush on him since we met him. Alice was always trying to get his attention. Edward didn't want his sister to end up like the other girls at our school, like a used up slut. So we went to Garrett and explained to him how perfect him and Alice would be together. Garrett not being the brightest bulb in the chandelier hadn't even noticed Alice. So it was a pleasant surprise for him. The fact that they worked put Edward's mind at ease.
Ben was in love with Angela Weber. So we had to go after her for him. Another perfect match.
Me and Edward were still the problem children.
The girls who liked us were sluts. Plain and simple. We knew that we were popular and good looking. We didn't even have to try to get girls. They flocked to us like flies to shit.
Yeah we were the shit. In more ways than one.
But that wasn't what we wanted. We didn't turn down an easy lay. We dated or got "girlfriends" to get the family's off our asses. But what we wanted, was very specific. The fact that we both wanted the same thing in a girl and from a girl, meant that this girl would have to be special. She would be both of ours.
Don't fuckin judge us.
We have very specific reasons for this. Not just our tastes in the fairer sex were spot on exact. Our mother's being treated like shit publicly and privately meant that obviously everyone needs to always have a buffer in a relationship.
We weren't going to fuck up like our fathers. One of us would always keep our girl as top priority. One of use could dick off but the other one better make sure our girl was taken care of.
I'm not talking about cheating. Once we make a commitment to that girl, we were going to be completely faithful.
Besides, I'm talking about acting like assholes. We all gotta do it once in awhile. That's just being a guy.
Cheating, that's for weak guys. Me and Edward we're not weak.
We wanted the fairy fuckin tale too. Just a little more NC 17 rated than your version. But the girl would be number one. That was something we had to have. So the girl had to deserve that kind of treatment.
Which meant no sluts. No girls that threw themselves away. We'd already had them anyway.
Double standards, hell yeah. We're still guys.
But now we know who that girl is.
Her name is Bella.
She's beautiful and smart.
Bella is perfect.
