This is my new story, The Roommate. It will be in both Edward and Bella's POV. I am also currently looking for a Beta since I barely get time to write. So sorry I haven't updated for Promise Me. I will soon. Enjoy!

Chapter 1: Meeting The Roommate

My name is Bella Swan. I am 20 years old and go to New York University. My boyfriend is Mike Newton aka Douche of the Year. We have been together for 3 years.

I was on the way home from my English Lit class. I opened the door to my apartment and walked in.

"Mike!" I called. What I got in response was moaning.

"Mike?" I found a lace thong on the floor of my living room, where the trail of clothes begun and ended at the guestroom door. I pushed it open to find Lauren Mallory on top of Mike.

"What the fuck?" I yelled. Mike jumped and saw me standing at the door. He quickly pushed Lauren off of him and put on his boxers.

"Bella, I can explain!" He started.

"Yes. Please explain why the slut of the building was having sex with you."

"Well….uhm… I"

Lauren had gotten on her clothes and left.

"Save it. Pack your stuff and get the hell out of my apartment. I want you gone in a half hour." I said.

"How long, Mike?" I asked.

"3 months." He said, looking down.
"3 months? We have been going out for 3 years. Are you really going to throw that all away?" I asked.

"I'm not the one who said its over, Bella. That was you. So really, I'm not throwing anything out. If anything, I want to try to work this out."

"There's nothing to work out, Michael. You cheated on me and I can't trust you anymore."

A half hour later, he was out and I was sitting out on the couch. I turned on the TV.

An hour later, I called Alice and told her what happened.

"I want to cut off his balls so badly." Alice said.

"You wouldn't really be cutting anything off. He was about 2 inches long." I said, chuckling.

"Bella, are you looking for a roommate?" She asked suddenly.

"I guess so. Why?" I asked her.

"My brother needs a place and I told him I'd do something."

"Well, can he stop by tonight or tomorrow?" I said. A roommate would be nice.

"He'll come by in an hour." Alice said. I could see her jumping up and down.


So I went to make myself some dinner. I was in the middle of making ravioli when the doorbell rang.

I went to open it and there was a man standing there. He was absolutely HOT. He had bronze hair and green eyes. He was easily 6'3".

"Hello. I'm Edward Cullen. I'm Alice's brother."

"Hi. I'm Bella Swan. Come in." I said, praying to God I would make it through the conversation without combusting internally.

He took his shoes off and went into the kitchen.

"Are you making dinner?" He said, gesturing to the stove.

"Yeah. Would you like some?" I asked.


"Ok. So to get to the point. Alice said you need a place. If you don't mind, may I ask why?" God please don't let me offend him. Please don't let me make a fool of myself.

"My girlfriend and I broke up. She cheated on me." Wow. Déjà vu much.

"Ok. How soon can you move in?" I asked.

"Tomorrow." He said.

"Perfect. Let me show you your room." I said going toward the guestroom.

Mike had cleared out the room so there was nothing in it.

"The bathroom is over there. My room is over there and this is your room."

Edward walked in and saw the room.

"Wow, it's pretty big." Edward said.

"I only have a few requirements. I really don't want any girls being brought back here. We'll split the bills of the house. Other than that, I have no problem."

"That's fine. So I'll see you tomorrow then?" He asked.

I nodded. "Goodnight."

After Edward left, I went to take a shower.

As I washed my hair, I thought about the events of the day and smiled. I've wanted to break up with Mike for months but just couldn't find the right way.

I shut off the water and looked into the mirror. I had brown hair and chocolate brown eyes. Nothing special. I went into my room and wore a camisole and shorts.

I fell asleep, awaiting the next day.

Love it? Hate it? Review!
