Author's Note: Here is my newest story. It's going to be a Sam and Bella fanfiction. It will be from Bella's point of view. It will be different from my other stories, where the wolves meet Bella after Edward leaves. In this story Edward and Bella are still together. Sam broke up with Leah shortly after Jared phased and imprinted on Kim. He didn't want to risk doing that to Leah, plus she was getting really suspicious of all his secrets. The story starts after Twilight, but before New Moon, so basically the summer between Bella's junior and senior years of high school. Sam won't show up in the first chapter either, just to warn you. He'll appear in the second one, though. Oh and last thing, if you are one that likes the couple to be together immediately in only one or two chapters, you might not enjoy this story. I promise it won't take more than 15 chapters, but it will take some time. I go for reality not fairytale plotting. Okay, enough background let the story begin…
DISCLAIMER: I own nothing…The Twilight Saga and all of its characters belong to Stephanie Meyer.
Everything with Edward was going smoothly, I guess you could say that. The summer before senior year had been incredible so far, a little predictable, but wonderful. When I wasn't working at Newton's I was with Edward, or at least one of the Cullen's. In just a few short months, they became my family. I didn't plan on ever living without them. The thought of them not being in my life was painful. But I didn't need to worry about that. Edward had promised that he would never leave, unless I allowed it. And I was never going to allow that to happen.
I was sitting in the living room of the Cullen's home listening to Edward play his piano. I sighed. Edward looked up from the keys.
"Are you bored, Love?"
"Just a tad."
"Alright, is there something else you wanted to do today?" I thought for a moment, but nothing came to mind.
"Not specifically. It just feels like we do the same thing everyday. I want to get out the house, Edward."
"Understandable. Why don't we take a trip to our meadow?"
"We just went there last week, twice."
"Okay. We could go to Port Angeles and go to dinner."
"Where I would be eating by myself. No thanks." He looked perplexed.
"I'm not sure what to suggest then."
"It's a nice day in Forks' standards, can we go to the beach." He raised one eyebrow.
"Bella the sun is out." And Edward would sparkle for all to see. I sighed. It should not be this hard to find something to do with your boyfriend.
"Oh, yeah, I forgot. Sorry."
"You have nothing to be sorry for, Love."
"Can we play a game?"
"A game?" His eyebrow rose again.
"Yeah, you know, like a board game. Do you own any?"
"You mean like Monopoly?"
"Yes, do you have that?"
"No. We have every sort of video game you could want."
"Do you not like video games, Bella?"
"I'm just not very good at them."
"Well, practice does make perfect. How about we give one a chance?"
"Sure." And so that began our daily game of Mario Kart. At first we tried different games, but I wasn't up for all the violence and gore that most games held. So Mario kart it was. And I had to say that I got pretty good at it. I never beat Edward, but then again I didn't have vampire reflexes. I did beat the game, though. That was enough for me to be happy. Playing the Wii held me content for another two weeks or so and then I began to feel restless again. I needed to do something new, something exciting.
One day I was flipping through the television stations, while Edward played chess with Alice. No one else would play with either of them, so they only had each other. The Cullen's had almost every television station imaginable. I stopped when I saw the X Games. I was amazed how people could be so daring. Doing back flips on motorcycles, 900-degree spins in the air while wakeboarding and double tailwhip flair on a BMX bike, whatever the heck that is. All those things seemed like fun, an ultimate adrenaline rush. I knew I couldn't do any of the things as hardcore as on the Games, but I was sure I could find something in my ability. I walked over to the chess game.
"Edward, may I use your computer?"
"Sure, Love, it's in my room." He responded not taking his eyes off of Alice.
"Thanks." I said while giving him a kiss on the cheek.
I headed up the stairs to Edward's room. Once there I turned on the laptop and googled extreme sports. What I found was abundant. Wikipedia provided me with a list of sports that were considered extreme. I looked over the list trying to determine if I could do any of them and if so, was Forks a place where they could be done. Near the bottom, I found what I was looking for. Cliff diving. It was perfect. I could do it in La Push and I thought I was capable of doing it. I mean how hard is it to jump off a cliff? Anyone could do it, right? So now the easy part was done. The hard part would be Edward. I walked back down stairs and heard Alice squeal check-mate.
"Edward, I know what I want to do tomorrow."
"And what is that, Love." I heard Alice take a deep breath in.
"No, Bella, you can't do that."
"Bella, you could be seriously injured. Where would you get such an idea from?" Great, I didn't even get to slowly work into the idea. Alice just had to see what I wanted to ask and then Edward had to hear her vision. I hate being human.
"I got it from the X-Games."
"Key word involved in those, extreme, and you my Love get hurt doing every day things."
"I am not a breakable doll, Edward. I can do stuff."
"Speaking of doll, let's go shopping tomorrow, Bella."
"No, Alice. I just said that I'm not a doll. I don't want to be Bella Barbie. I hate shopping and I hate being stuck in this house."
"You are by no means stuck in this house, Bella. You are free to leave as you wish," Edward said cooly.
"But I'm not free to do what I want?"
"I only wish to protect you. You know that, Bella. Cliff diving is too dangerous."
"Fine, can we at least go to La Push? It's not supposed to be sunny tomorrow."
"How about we find a different beach?"
"No, I like First Beach. That's where I want to go, Edward. Why are you being so difficult? It's like we can never do what I want."
"You want to go to the beach, and we will, just not that one."
"Why not? Why do none of you ever go to La Push?"
"That place is dangerous and they have a long history."
"I don't see how it's dangerous. And what do you mean a long history?"
"Some of the Elders remember stories that could implicate us. So we distance ourselves from them."
"Like Billy Black? Is that why he told Jacob to tell be to break up with you at prom? He knows what you are."
"He thinks he does, as do others."
"Still that's no reason for me to not go. I'll just call Angela and see if she wants to go to First Beach with me."
"No, Bella. This conversation is through. You will not go there; it's for your own good."
"I am not a child; you can't order me not to do something."
"No, but I can make sure that you won't be able to follow through with that something."
"What does that mean?"
"Hopefully it won't come to that." He didn't even answer the question.
"Ugh, you are impossible sometimes. I'm leaving!" So I stormed out of the house and climbed into my truck. I was shaking with anger all the way home. Sometimes I felt as if he looked down at me instead of as an equal. Like I was some pet that needed to be house broken.
I still had a few hours before Charlie would be home, so I started to clean. I cleaned and cleaned until the entire house was left spotless. Then I began to fix dinner, still reflecting that day's events.
When Charlie came home that evening, I was just finishing up dinner. We both sat down and fixed our plates. I was still lost in my thoughts of how get past Edward and Alice. Charlie broke the silence.
"So, Billy Black called today."
"Oh, that's nice. What did he have to say?"
"Well, it seems that he is having a cook out at his house this Saturday. He asked if we would be interested in joining in on the festivities. What do you think? Or do you already have plans with Edward?" This could be what I was looking for. If I go with Charlie, Edward can't stop me.
"No, no definite plans at least. I think it would be a wonderful thing to go. I've been meaning to go down to La Push."
"Why haven't you had Edward take you?"
"The Cullen's aren't too big on beaches. They're more the woodsy type."
"Hmph. Well, then I think we should go, too. I'm sure Jacob would love to see you again." Oh yes, Jacob. I haven't seen him since prom.
"Yeah, that would be nice. You know, to hang out with him some."
"Yep, it sure would. I really wish you wouldn't cut yourself off from the rest of your friends to spend all your time with Edward."
"I spend a lot of time with Alice. You love Alice, Dad."
"Yes, I do, but she is also his sister. Maybe you should try hanging out with people not in the Cullen family once in awhile."
"Okay, Dad. I'll give that some thought."
"Good. Well, I will give Billy a call and let him know to count two more in. Do you think you could fix something for us to take?"
"Sure. What were you thinking?"
"How about a dessert? Something sweet."
"Okay, I'll see what I can whip up."
After dinner, I went up to my room. I did a little reading. It was called Breakfast at Tiffany's and it was written by James Patterson. It seemed like a rather odd, but romantic story. A young girl grows up and falls in love with the imaginary friend from her childhood. It was slightly like a modern day fairy tale with a twist. The girl got her happy ending with a man that should never have existed. I hoped that I would get that lucky, that my ending would be happy. I loved Edward, but lately I felt as if something was missing from my life. For some reason, La Push seemed like the best place to start looking. I got up and headed for the shower. When I was done I headed for my room. As soon as I walked through the door, his velvet voice filled the air.
"I really don't think that it is a good idea, Bella." Great, I haven't even shut the door yet and he's already laying into me.
"Well, I do. And you can't stop me, Edward. It's a free country."
"Yes, it is. I really wish you would heed my warnings about going to that place."
"Warnings? You don't give me warnings, Edward. You simply say to don't go, but never have you given me a real reason."
"It's extremely dangerous."
"I spent half of my time down there when I was here as a kid during the summers. The only danger I found, was me. And I follow myself around everywhere, so technically I am always in danger."
"This isn't a joke, Isabella." I hated when he called me that. It felt like he was talking down to me as if I was a child.
"I'm going, end of discussion."
"No, not the end. Do you really want to know?"
"Yes! Why would you even have to ask?"
"You disappear, Bella. Alice can't see you there."
"What do you mean?"
"I mean that you vanish from her visions, and I can't let you go there, not knowing if you'll be coming back."
"Alice can always see everything, why not La Push?"
"I don't know." He was lying. I could tell. He was trying too hard to look me in the eye.
"Well, I guess this will be a learning experience then."
"I don't follow."
"I'm going regardless of what you say, so Alice will learn about her lack of visions. Whether if it's me, or La Push, or maybe even another outside force. After Saturday, we'll know." Edward didn't respond he simply left out my window. I knew he was angry that I was going against him. And the odd thing was I didn't care. I got up and closed the window and locked it.
Author's Note: So, I hoped you all enjoyed the first chapter. Looks like Bella and Edward are having some relationship issues. Next chapter will be the cook out at the Black's home. And all of La Push will be there. Oh and a side note. Since I have two other stories that I am currently working on, this story will only be updated once a week, probably on Wednesdays. Let me know what you think of the story so far. Thanks!
