Just a small town girl, living in a lonely world
Took the midnight train going anywhere
Just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit
Took the midnight train going anywhere

I seen her in a smokey room, a smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night

It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers, waiting... walkin' down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Street lights... people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill
everybody wants a thrill
Betting anything to roll the dice just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
Some are born to sing the blues
oh the movie never ends

It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers, waiting... walking down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Street lights... people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Don't stop... believin'
hold on to that feeling


I turned my radio down...

Today was my first day at forks highschool my names Isabella marie swan but i prefer Bella, im 16 im the chief of police's daughter, im pretty average standing at a short 5'4 brown eyes and brown boring curly long hair i find it hard to fit into new places, normally cause i like to keep to myself.

Normally im shy and keep to myself prefering to read a book and listen to music than go out partying, of course because of this i get called weirdo/loser/freak. I heard the lot, but i prefer to ignore the names so later the girls just give up and ignore me.

i live with my dad Charlie whilst my mother Renee lives with her boyfriend Phil in Phoenix, i moved down here during the spring break so i wasnt in the way of phil and renee as much as my mother wanted me to stay i didnt want to be a hassle. We are still close however living with charlie has been easy he is just as quiet as i am, we have our awkward moments but both give each other space, it suit's us both just fine.

Back to present...

Today was my first day at forks highschool and to say i was nervous was an understatement i arrived in my senior citizen truck, given to me by my dad and jacob my best friend who rebuild the engine. I kept my head down ignoring the whispers of passing students as i got out of my truck, slinging my bag over my shoulder.

"who's she?"

"isnt that the police's daughter?"

"looks like a freak no competition then with edward"

Edward? what a weird name i carried on walking entering the building in my skinny jeans and a blue long sleeved top, letting my hair fall infront of my face ignoring the students stares, as i went to the main desk...

"ummm excuse me?" i asked politely

the woman at the desk called mrs cope from the name tag obviously suddenly jumped

"oh sorry dear you gave me a fright" i blushed

"sorry" i spoke quietly

"its ok my dear let me guess...charlie swans little girl" i bit my lip trying not to groan out loud

"um yes i have come to get my schedule?"

"oh of course dear now let me see...oh here you go" i excepted it giving mrs cope a smile

i gazed down at my schedule...


English Lit






"um thankyou" i smiled

Already walking towards my maths class, i knocked on the door ignoring the other pupils stares.

"and who are you?" the teacher sighed clearly annoyed i disrupted the lesson i stuttered

"oh i-im isabella swan im new..."

"ok miss swan please take a seat next to mrs cullen " she interupted i quickly nodded

heading towards the seat she directed me too. Unlike the other girls who glared this girl who was now my maths partner was extremely pretty, she had black spikey hair smaller than me with bright green eyes and a warm friendly smile wearing top branded clothes. I sat at my seat just as she turned round in my direction...

"hello im Alice! your hair is so pretty do you use mousse?" i blanched.

"what's mousse?" Alice started to laugh.

"oh isabella your so funny! we are gonna be great friends" i couldnt help but smile Alice seemed genuinely nice.

"It's just Bella and nice to meet you too" i smiled kindly.

The teacher all gave us a work sheet me, Alice and I finished pretty quickly compared to most which gave us time to talk amongst ourselves.

"so what did you say your last name was ?" Alice quirked an eyebrow.


"oh is chief swan your father?" i blushed.

"um yes he is."

"cheif swan is great always working hard for this town. He and my father are great friends my fathers Carlisle hes the doctor-"

"you mean Dr Cullen?" i have met that man to many times for my liking...

"yes have you two met?" Alice seemed genuinely interested.

"um just a few times when i was younger im quite clumzy" i blushed hiding slightly behind my hair Alice smiled at this

"i bet he would love to meet you after all this time maybe you should come round one night"

"sounds ok" i smiled at her kindess no one has been this accepting before.

"your not much of a talker are you?" Alice chuckled i gave an sympathetic look

"ummm no sorry" i apologyised.

"its ok" Alice smiled as the bell went

"meet me at lunch come and eat with me and my friends i can introduce you..."

"ok thankyou Alice" we both smiled as Alice directed me to my next class...


I stared at my schedule and sighed loudly walking towards the girls changing rooms. To say i hated p.e was an understatment i was too clumzy, and just not athletic enough. I decided to just hang around at the back so no one would notice me, hopefully but boy was i wrong...

I got changed for p.e feeling the stares of girls who pretty much wore the tightest p.e kit i ever seen, i wore a larger one making me look much smaller. The other girls giggled as we entered the gym i kept my head down wanting it to be over as quickly as possible.

"Today girls we are gonna play volley ball" all the girls sighed including me.

"because it is raining heavily the boys shall be joining us too" a few girls started giggling behind me...

"oh my god i hope edward likes what im wearing" one said

"hes soooo hot i want him" another said

"oi bitch hes mine!" the coach blew the whistle

"QUIET GIRLS and i shall direct you into teams..."

*5 minutes later*

I was on a court with 4 girls each side letting them do most of the work, i stood in the corner fidgeting with my baggy shirt.

The boys had joined us on different courts, i ignored them focusing on not getting hit and blending into the back ground. Suddenly the ball came flying towards me, luckily i rebounded it off my arm before it hit me in the face. I turned to see it collide with the back of a tall boys head he suddenly yelled.

"WHAT THE HELL!" I froze to scared to move.

Suddenly the boy turned around in my direction. I gasped as my eyes connected with a blazing green pair looking angrily towards mine, he was tall and lean with just the right amount of muscle, he had urban uruley broze hair, and strong cheek bones he was beautiful. I tried to ignored the tingles shooting up my body immediently blushing quickly hiding behind my hair.

The girls centered around the boy started pampering him a little to much for anyone's liking stroking his arms, the girls immediently glared at me.

I made my way towards the strange yet beautiful boy ignoring his burning gaze on my skin i tucked my hair behind my ear before stuttering out...

"im s-s-sorry i didnt mean to..." i spoke so quietly the tall girl with blonde hair covered in make up walked into my personal space, and poked me in the chest.

"you better be you little bitch! no one hurts my edward!-" i cringed back from her words like she hit me.

"shut up lauren! im not yours get the hell away from me!" she gasped flipping her hair over her shoulder.

"back off bitch hes ours" she whispered and strutting off the others following i stood stunned.

"i didnt m-mean to i-i-" i mumbled trying to hold in the tears...

"shhhhh" i felt a jolt of electricity as the boy tucked my hair behind my ear, i blushed stunned by his forwardness.

"whats your name doll?" i looked up at the boy seeing only concern and amusement in his perfect face

"Isabella marie swan" i spoke softly he smiled a crooked smile sending butterflys in my stomach, i smiled back causing his to widen.

"Isabella huh? beautiful name for a beautiful girl" i froze shaking my head at his statement making him frown.

"i-im sorry for hitting you sports arnt my thing..." i squirmed he started to laugh and i stared shocked whiplashed.

"no harm done beautiful my names Edward Cullen" he held out his hand must be Alice's brother...no duh bella

"nice to meet you" i held out my hand his engolfing mine.

I felt a shock shoot up my arm, i jumped a little and by the look on his face he felt it too we quickly separated.

"see you later isabella im sure i shall have the pleasure of seeing you once again... though that wont be enough" i saw a possessive gleam in his eye making me shiver.

I turned back walking towards my court feeling his stare on my back...In your dreams bella
