It is also still a work in progress, I have like 5 chapters done and working on the 6th right now. Please let me know if you like it before I keep posting the chapters.

My parents thought that by moving me to Forks, WA I would become a normal, happy teenager. Well to be honest I thought I was normal and happy but obviously I was wrong. Any way I moved from sunny, warm Phoenix, AZ to gloomy, wet Forks. How was that supposed to make me happy and normal?
On my first day of school here I met some interesting people. None were friend material and definitely not secret telling material. Half way through my day my whole world changed. Sitting in the cafeteria with a group from my last class and minding my own business, out of the corner of my eye I catch a glimpse of the most amazing person I ever saw. Actually there were five of them.
"Who are they?" I asked the girl sitting next to me. I think her name is Jessica but no promises.
"The Cullen's. You haven't seen them yet? Well, the blonde is Rosalie and the big brute with her is Emmitt, her boyfriend. The guy by himself is Edward. The other two are Alice and Jasper. No one's sure just what their relationship is. They are always together though. Edward is a bit of a loner. He just broke up with his girlfriend, Illianah." she summed up for me. My attention went from Edward to Alice. I watched them both secretively. His dark, loner persona and her magical, pixie-ish persona captured my attention easily.
"Oh, thanks." I said as I stared at her, drawing a blank on her name again.
Turned out Edward was in my Bio 101 class and lucky me I drew him as my lab partner. He sat there the whole hour staring at me.
After about three weeks of being in this gloomy hell-hole, the sun came out. Not literally of course. What I meant was that I spoke to Alice for the first time. Seems she needed a gym credit and transferred into my class. Though I suck at anything sports related I was actually looking forward to that class from then on.
One day coach made us pair up for some lame thing and she chose me. That was the first time I ever spoke to her.
"Hi, I'm Alice. You're very quiet. Are you always like this or is there a reason?" she asked in a peppy voice.
"Yeah, sorry about that. I've only been here for a month or so now and I still don't quite fit in." I answered reluctantly. I must have sounded like an idiot. Maybe I should have tattooed 'closet lezbo' on my forehead instead. Then I would be rightly embarrassed.
The only thought that kept racing through my head was how beautiful and mystical Alice is. I probably looked like a lost and love-struck puppy because she just smiled at me.
After gym was over we rushed to the locker room. When I was showered and dressed Alice walked up to me. She just smiled.
"Well if you ever need anyone to show you around just let me know. Here, here's my number, in case you ever want to get out of Forks and hang out somewhere more alive." she said as she handed me her cell number on a corner piece of her homework.
"Thanks." and that was all my tongue-tied brain could manage to get out. She walked away smiling and glanced back before she exited the locker room.
We started hanging out after that every chance we got. As we got closer to Christmas break we were virtually inseparable. At this time I noticed that Edward was ignoring me more. One day while we were hanging out at my house after school, I decided to ask Alice what his big deal was. I mean hey, he's my lab partner and he doesn't even help anymore.
"Edward? He's pissed because he wants all your attention. He's one of those guys that if you don't acknowledge him he will get distant and angry. His last girlfriend learned that after she started hanging with her girlfriends so much. He finally had enough and she broke up with him. He's been like that for as long as I've known him." she explained to me.
"I never even thought of him wanting my attention that way. He barely talked to me when we met as it was. Why all of sudden? Oh well. I'm not interested so he needs to get a life. What are you doing for break anyways?"
"Esme and Carlisle are doing their normal Christmas bash and I am formally inviting you as my guest, if you'll come that is. It's nothing too flashy. Actually it's just me, Jasper, Rose, Emmitt, Edward, Esme, and Carlisle. Esme and Carlisle already know I wanted to invite you and they said that would be wonderful. So now you have to come weather you want to or not. You don't want to disappoint them do you?"
"Well in that case I guess I will have to accept your invitation. And you are about to tell me that we have to go shopping for the perfect dress aren't you?"
"How'd you know?" she said as she smiled. I love that smile. I've found myself loving that smile more and more every time I saw it. Her smile, her perfume, the way she looked at me, and the subtle way her hand would graze mine as we walked to classes.
"Because I know you Alice. You love to shop. When do we go?"
"Tonight after dinner. If that's ok with Charlie." Oh yeah I forgot to mention my father. I live with him while my mother still lives in Phoenix temporarily with her new husband. He's a minor league baseball player and between teams right now. They are heading for Florida the beginning of next year.
"He's not going to be home tonight. He's on patrol all night. Something about the animal attacks. So that would be perfect. 7pm good for you?"
"Sure. I'll be there. Hey I got to run. Esme needs me to pick something up for the party so I will call you when I'm on my way, ok?"
"Sure. Hey, just remember, I'm doing this for Esme and Carlisle. So we better get something nice." I said as I winked to her. She smiled. She gave me a hug and was off. I was sitting there trying to figure out how I am going to tell her that I have a huge secret and I'm afraid to admit it to her. Maybe tonight while we're shopping. She's always happy to shop for me. I'm like her living Barbie or something.
