BPOV: Prologue

New York, everyone likes New York, right? Wrong. I hate New York; it's filled with tourists and shoppers. As to why, I have no idea. Unfortunately, I live here. I am a journalist, even though many people think that we criticize way too much just so people will not want to become one. Truth is that we try our hardest not to do that, sometimes it just happens.

Mike Newton, my boss finds me interesting. Though truly I don't see why he does, thankfully no one knows why. I was born on September 13, 1977 and grew up in Forks, Washington. At the age of 16, my parents died in a plane crash and I became an unaccompanied minor, meaning that I took care of myself. Thankfully I am an only child so I had no one to worry about besides myself. After that, I graduated high school and got a full scholarship to New York State( I have no idea if that even exists) and majored in journalism with a minor in photography. Luckily right after high school, my clumisness disaperred.

I know that if my parents were still around, things would be much different. Charlie, my dad, and Renne, my mom, wanted me to be a teacher at Forks Elementary. At the time it sounded like a great idea, but then the crash happened and I didn't want to be around anyone. Over time I got back together with some old friends, and look at where I ended up. I always wonder what other people think of me, not that I care, but everyone looks at me like I have some illness.

As for where I live, in downtown New York. Alice Brandon is my roomate, she is 4'9, has black spikey hair, and sparkling gray eyes. Her boyfriend, Jasper Hale, is from Texas, he has blonde hair, and blue eyes. Unfortunetly for Alice, jasper towers over her by about a foot and a half.
