So, I'm kinda new to this whole fan fiction thing, so this is my first story. I hope it isn't too bad. Hope you like it. Please review.

Chapter 1: Haunted

"I came home two minutes late! You can't punish me for that!"

"I'm your mother Rebecca! I can do whatever I want!"

Rebecca narrowed her eyes at her mother.

"Just because you're my mother, doesn't mean that you can yell at me just because I was late by two minutes!"

"Don't use that tone with your mother young lady!"

Rebecca whipped her head around to see her father standing in the doorway. He had his arms across his chest and his dark blue eyes were narrowed at her.

"I don't care if she is my mother. I'll use that tone with her all I want. She just doesn't like the fact that I'm actually yelling at her ugly ass this time around!"

Her father was over to her in a split second. Rebecca glared up at her father and noticed that he looked like he was ready to explode. Before anyone knew it, her father slapped her across the face. She grabbed her cheek as tears came into her eyes.


As soon as her father said this, he slapped her again. She fell to the ground and her father kicked her in the gut five times before Rebecca got a hold of his foot. She tripped him and ran out the back door. Her mother helped her father up off the floor before her father ran out the back door after her.


"NO!" Rebecca yelled over her shoulder. Tears were running down her cheeks even more than they were before. She looked back over her shoulder again and noticed that her father wasn't behind her anymore. She turned around and screamed when she saw him right in front of her. Rebecca tried to turn around but her father had already grabbed her and slung her over her shoulder.

"Get off of me you fat ugly bastard!"

"If you keep calling me that then that just makes me wonder what other nasty things you would scream at me."

Rebecca stiffened because she knew what he meant by that. When they got into the house, her mother walked around to where she was and slapped her across the face.

"Don't you ever call me ugly ass again! If you do, I will make you pay." That was the last thing anyone said to her before her father drug her up to her room to rape her.

The next day, Rebecca woke up really sore. It took her a minute to realize what happened the night before. She covered her bright blue eyes with her arm and groaned. She got out of bed and walked down the stairs into the kitchen.

Rebecca looked into the living room and saw her parents passed out on the couch. She sighed and shook her head before she grabbed an apple off of the counter. She went back up to her room to grab her stuff for school.

Later on that day at school, Rebecca got in the lunch line and there were tons of people talking about the hot new students. Her "friends" kept trying to get her to talk to them, but she wasn't really in the mood after the argument with her parents.

"I'm just going to eat my lunch and get to class."

Edward Cullen was walking with Jasper and Alice into the lunchroom when he saw a girl with honey blonde hair tied into a ponytail. She had dark wash jeans on with a black hoodie. Her bright blue eyes were lowered at her tray. When Edward looked down at her hands, he saw that she was picking at her food. Everyone sitting around her was talking about them.

Once they got to their lunch table, Edward looked at her again. He tried to read her mind like he did with Bella's, but he soon discovered that he couldn't.

"Her name is Rebecca Chandler."

Edward and Jasper both looked over at Alice when she said this.

"Who's Rebecca, Alice?" Jasper questioned

"The girl that Edward has been staring at for the past five minutes."

If Edward had been human, he would have blushed. Jasper looked over at Edward and followed his gaze over to where he was looking. Edward opened his mouth to ask Jasper a question, but Alice beat him to it.

"Edward wants to know if you could check her emotions. He wants to know how she feels." Jasper nodded his head and concentrated for like a second.

"She's depressed."

Alice and Edward exchanged glances just as the bell rang for another class to start.

Rebecca looked up from her lunch tray when she heard everyone getting up to go to class. She managed to get through her last two classes without a problem.

Eventually the bell rang signaling for school to end. Rebecca grabbed her books and headed for her locker. She grabbed her book bag and made sure she had her keys for her old beat up Chevy truck.

She wanted to go home and go walk in the woods. Edward Cullen, on the other hand, had other plans. He went to go over to her, but Jasper put his arm out to stop him.

"She's not one of us, Edward."

"I know she's not one of us Jasper. But I need to know why she's depressed."

"Would you two knock it off? She's not even here anymore."

Edward and Jasper both turned there heads to look at Rosalie, just to see her duck her head back into the car window. Right before they got into the Volvo with Alice, the both shouted, "Shut up Rose!"

Rebecca pulled her blue Chevy truck into the driveway of her two story house. She noticed right away that her father's car was in the driveway. She suppressed a groan as she got out of the truck to head into the house.

Meanwhile, at the Cullen house, Edward was busy telling the rest of the Cullens about Rebecca.

"Lover boy over there has found another human play toy."

"Rose! Would you just shut up for one minute?" Edward practically yelled. Rosalie rolled her eyes at him as the other Cullens just watched on. Alice and Jasper were watching as Emmett tried to calm Rosalie down and as Esme tired to hold Edward back.

"Son, would you please stop trying to kill you sister?" Carlisle asked as he walked into the room. Edward immediately stopped what he was trying to do and looked at his "father".

"Rose, could you please keep the comments to yourself?"

Rosalie nodded her head slightly and looked down at her nails.

"So, sounds like to me that Edward has found himself falling in love with a human again after 50 years." Carlisle declared as he sat down next to Esme.

"No! I'm not falling for a human again! I can't be! Not after what happened to Bella!"

"Then why did you want to talk to her when school ended Edward?"

"Just shut up Jasper! I vowed 50 years ago that I would never fall for another human again and I'm not going to let one human force me to break that vow!" Edward demanded before he got up from his chair and stormed out of the house.

Rebecca looked around the corner of the kitchen and saw that her father was sitting on the couch watching the basketball game with a bottle of beer in his hand. Rebecca rolled her eyes and shook her head before she snuck out the back door. She took a deep breath as she shut the door behind her quietly, hoping that she wouldn't get caught. With her guitar in hand, she ran into the woods.

Edward had been walking through the woods for about ten minutes when he saw Rebecca walking not that far off from where he was. He watched as she sat down, guitar in hand, and started strumming. Edward watched in interest as she opened her mouth to sing.

I couldn't tell you

Why she felt that way

She felt it everyday

And I couldn't help her

I just watched her make

The same mistakes again

What wrong what's wrong now

To many too many problems

Don't know where she belongs

Where she belongs

She wants to go home

But nobody's home

That's where she lies

Broken inside

With no place to go

No place to go

To dry her eyes

Broken inside

Open your eyes

And look outside

Find the reason why

You've been rejected

Now you can't find

What you've left behind

Be strong be strong now

Too many too many problems

Don't know where she belongs

Where she belongs

She's wants to go home

But nobody's home

That's where she lies

Broken inside

With no place to go

No place to go

To dry her eyes

Broken inside

Her feelings she hides

Her dreams she can't find

She's loosing her mind

She's falling behind

She can't find her place

She's losing her faith

She's falling behind

She's all over the place yeah

She wants to go home

But nobody's home

That's where she lies

Broken inside

With no place to go

No place to go

To dry her eyes

Broken inside

She's lost inside lost inside oh oh

She's lost inside she's lost inside oh oh yeah

Edward watched in amazement as she finished the song. He was going to go over and talk to her but she was tuning the guitar so he didn't think that she would pay any attention to him. He watched very carefully as she started to strum on the guitar again. He looked down at her hand and saw that they were shaking just slightly. He looked back up at her face and saw that she had tears welling up in her eyes before she started to play again.

And it's a sad picture, the final blow hits you

Somebody else gets what you wanted again

You know it's all the same, another time and place

Repeating history and you're getting sick of it

But I believe in whatever you do

And I'll do anything to see it through

Without realizing what he was doing, he started to walk towards Rebecca. He stepped on a branch halfway there and Rebecca stopped playing her guitar.

"Who's there?"

Edward, instead of doing the smart thing and saying that it was him, ran off. Since no one answered her the first time, Rebecca got up and went home.

Later that night, Rebecca hid her guitar in her closet and changed into her pjs. She laid on her bed and stared at the ceiling thinking of the new students before sleep overtook her.

Edward had to see her again, so he climbed in through her open window and watched her sleep.

"Sweet dreams Rebecca." Edward whispered.

So, that was the first chapter of my story. I'm sorry if it is a little boring, but it should pick up soon. The songs that I used in the chapter were Nobody's Home by Avril Lavigne and Change by Taylor Swift.
