Summary: Bella's family moves onto Amy Juergen's street. Edward rents an apartment close to Ulysses S. Grant High School to be closer to Bella, leaving his family in Forks. As Bella and Edward meet everyone at Ulysses S. Grant, things get crazy.
I was packing up the rest of my belongings for my big move with Renee and Charlie. Renee was offered a job and Charlie insisted she take it. They were having problems lately and Charlie would do anything to keep from a divorce with her. That meant leaving Forks. Leaving my friends, my school, my life, and my love. Edward Cullen.
Edward Cullen and I have been best friends since kindergarten and dating since 7th grade. I would be starting 10th grade at Ulysses S. Grant High School. Yippie. When we went to check out houses and the school I got an earful of all the drama there. I hate drama, it's not my style.
"Love me, Love me
Say that you love me
Fool me, Fool me
Oh how you do me
Kiss me, Kiss me
Say that you miss me"

"Hey, Eddie!" I teased him. He HATES that name. "Just kidding, I love you." He sighed into the phone. "I have to tell you something. Please open your front door." I gulped. Is he gonna break up with me? "Yeah, okay bye!" My voice was squeaky and high pitched.
My hands shaking, I unlocked the front door. Edward came in and hugged me, and then he kissed my forehead. My eyes were watering and my body was still shaking. "Bells are you alright? You look like you saw a ghost. Your voice got really squeaky too…" I nodded. Might as well get it over with.
"Are you breaking up with me?" I looked down as the tears fell. "No, no no no no no no no, NEVER!" His voice was full of shock and I was confused. "Then, why did you-?" "I have news, that's what I wanted to tell you." I raised my hand and slapped the back of his head. "Ow!" I looked at him. "I'm sorry, but you should've used a different tone!"
"I'm sorry too. I love you." I kissed him quickly. "Alright, now that's over, what's your news?" He got really excited and smiled like a little kid who got a bag full of Halloween candy. "I'm moving with you!" Uh, wow. "What?"
"Well, that's everything." I flopped onto his couch. "Finally!" We finished packing my room and then went on to pack his stuff. He found an apartment close to my house and his parents agreed to help out until he got a job and could do it himself.
His parents are awesome. No matter what he does, and he's done some pretty stupid stuff, they always forgive him. Esme is my favorite. She's practically my mom and isn't afraid to lecture or scold every now and then. Not to mention Esme and Carlisle are allowing Edward to move away from home, AND help him out. I'm really going to miss them.
"I dunno about you, babe but I'm exhausted." Yeah, me too. "Let's sleep then. In your bed." He closed his eyes and stretched out n the couch, pushing me off. "Nah, I'm gonna sleep here." I waved. "Goodnight. I'm going to sleep in a warm comfy bed since mine is already in the moving truck." As I began to walk to his mostly empty room, he scooped me up and ran to his room, closing the door behind him.
"WAKE UP! It's moving day!" Renee and Esme chanted over and over again. "No it's sleep all day, day." I groaned. I was really tired from packing until probably midnight or later. They threw the blankets off of me and I was surprised Edward wasn't on the bed with me, but on the floor. Strange.
It's freaking 6:30 in the morning. "Get ready because we leave at 7:00 sharp." Esme called before she left with Renee. Edward's parents were coming with us so that we could drive Edward's Volvo, the huge moving truck, Charlie's new Chevy truck, and Renee's Hyundai Sonata. Esme and Carlisle were going to drive the moving truck back here to return it for us as well.
Edward and I were showered, dressed and heading for his Volvo. I brought along my backpack, which contained 2 books, money, snacks, 2 water bottles, and a DVD player with some movies for the ride. My cell was in my pocket, and my sweatshirt was on the floor of his car. Esme and Renee are riding the Sonata, Charlie in the moving truck, and Carlisle the Chevy.
At about an hour into the trip I got bored and decided to watch The Proposal on the DVD player. I put the headphones in my ears and began to watch. I obviously fell asleep because when I woke up we were in southern Washington stopping for food and my movie was over.
I got really tired from being in the car and tried to stay awake to keep Edward company, but failed. I wished his high energy would rub off on me and I again fell asleep for the rest of the journey, besides stopping to use the restroom and eating at DQ for dinner.
When we arrived at our new house, I was still so tired I didn't pay attention to how big the house was, or that were was a fence and I was headed straight for it. I ran into it and fell backwards. "Geez, Bells. You're not very functional without 12 hours of quality sleep." I stuck my tongue out and crawled back into the car to sleep while they unloaded my bed. I wouldn't be much help anyways.
I woke up feeling fully rested, and starving. I stretched to see Renee and Charlie unpacking through my open door. I checked my phone, 10:56. My new room was twice the size of my original and my few boxes were scattered around the room. My parents agreed to buy me all new bedding, curtains, paint, a desk, tv, small couch, and a bookshelf.
We were going to the store soon as we were settled. I arranged my furniture I did have, my dresser, bed, night stand, and rocking chair. Next I unpacked all my clothes, shoes, toiletries, books, CDs, DVDs, and accessories. My temporary bedding was already unpacked. As soon as I finished I looked at my room. Not bad, but would be better once I had everything else.
The doorbell rang so I ran to answer it, expecting it to be Edward. "Ah, sleeping beauty is awake." My dad called. I rolled my eyes and opened the door. A girl about my age was at the door holding cookies. "Hello, I'm Grace. I heard you're new here so I came to welcome you." She handed me the cookies. "Hey, I'm Bella. I would ask you to come in, but our house isn't clean and unpacked yet." I smiled to be polite. "Oh, that's okay. I'm actually on my way to a friend's."
"Okay, well nice meeting you, Grace." She extended her hand and I shook it awkwardly. "Hope to see you at school on Monday, bye Bella." And with that she left. I took a bite out of one of the cookies and closed the door. I began helping my parents unpack, while thinking about my new school, very glad Edward was here with me.
