Disclaimer; I don't own anything.
School starts just like it does every year.
I got up that morning, helped Lucia get ready despite all the nagging from Helen, drove her to school and went right back to bed. I didn't have the strength to get up. My only priority was going to be gone from the house for the next seven hours and if I wanted to lay in bed and cry all those seven hours that's exactly what I was going to do.
My head had barely hit the pillow when Alice and Rosalie came barging in.
"ISABELLA YOU GET UP OFF THAT BED RIGHT NOW!" Alice has been staying with us since Edward left. The empty and quiet house was just a reminder that everything had fallen apart.
"I'm not going" I scream into my pillow
"The hell you are!" Replies Rose, pulling on my feet dragging me off my bed. I jump up ready to face whatever they have ready for me
Alice stands in my doorway clothes and makeup bag in hand. School starts in 10 min if they really think it's going to take less than 10 min to convince me leave this house they are out of their minds.
"I already told you guys I'm not going" I mumble
Rosalie rolls her eyes and throws herself on my bed "Then I guess we'll join you" she smirks
Alice put the stuff down on a chair and pull me to the bed with them
I lay there with Rose on my right and Alice on my left staring at my celling for 10 min before I burst out laughing.
"I think she's gone completely crazy" whispers Alice to Rose making me laugh harder. Rose starts laughing with me and soon our laugher turns to us clapping our hands like idiots, struggling to get air. Alice just stares at us
"You guys are so weird" I say once I have enough air in my lungs
Rose throws her arms around me and squishes me to her, Alice throws herself on top giggling. "We're your best friends, we're supposed to be weird" say Rose
"Now come on, you need to get out of this house!" says Alice
"I don't wannaaaa" I whine "Come on, it'll be good for you! Let go to school, spend some time with Emmett and Jasper and make fun of some teachers." Giggled Alice
They won, 20 mins later I was showered and dress, hair was done as well as makeup. This is the quickest they've ever dressed me.
When we walk down the stairs I'm genuinely surprised to see Emmett and Jasper sitting on the couch watching TV
"What are you two doing here?" I ask
they both look up startled Jasper was the first to answer "We always got to school together" he smiles
Emmett walked over to me and picked me up in a bear hug "Glad to have you back" he whispered in my ear
We got to school before the second period bell rung which gave us enough time to go by the office and grab out schedules.
Other than 4th period with Jasper and 6th period with Emmett I was completely alone. We waited by the lockers, just like we always had.
The girls were talking about some fashion show in New York and Jasper and Emmett were arguing about sports and just for a minute there, it felt like things were back to normal that is if you could overlook the fact that there were 5 of us now instead of 6. I shook my head in hopes of building a wall that could block all those thoughts but when the bell finally rang I remembered why I wasn't going to come in the first place.
Every single person that had walked out of the classrooms in that hallway stopped and stared. They whispered to themselves as if we didn't already know they were gossiping about us, in a small town like Forks there are no secrets.
I hugged my brother and waved a goodbye to the others before walking away to class. Maybe if I ignored it, maybe if I acted like everything was fine I would make it through the day in one piece.
2nd period Art class wasn't much of a distraction, the teacher assigned us to draw something that reminded us of happiness, which left the class up for free discussion and it didn't take a scientist to know I was their favorite subject.
"I heard Edward left because she gave him an STD"
"I bet she was cheating on him with Jasper."
"No, you guys have it all wrong, Bella didn't cheat on Edward. Edward cheated on Bella and gave her an STD"
Some of these rumor were ridiculous, more than half the town had found out about Carlisle and Edward. But that's how people in this town are, they look for worst in every situation.
Can't this day be over already?
I decided I had no choice but to at least try to get through it. Nothing was going to change the fact that what happened, happened and I wasn't going to spend the rest of my life letting it eat away at me. I had to move forward and what better time than the present to start.
I picked up my pencil and began to draw… First the grass, then the pretty flowers, and finally the sun. I really did try my best but what I drew didn't do the meadow any justice. I grabbed my paper and made my way to my teachers' desk and just like that the little chattering in the back of the room became silence.
"Oh, you're done already?" asked Mrs. Kelly
I nodded my head and turned around giving the girls in the back the meanest look I could master and put my head down the rest of the period.
3rd and 4th period came and went and before I knew it, it was lunch time.
Jasper waited for me as I put my stuff away in my locker, he refuse to leave me alone. It amazes me how well he actually knows me.
"Bellaaaaa! I'm hungry!" he whines
I chuckle "I told you to go without me."
"I'm already late anyway" he starts, leaning against the lockers "might as well wait for you."
I take my sweet time putting away the only two items I have, mostly to avoid Jasper, but mostly because I just don't want to into the cafeteria
He doesn't give me much choice, when he sees that my stuff is inside the locker he slams it close and grabs my hand "Lets go" he yells
As soon as we walk through the cafeteria doors everybody's eyes are on us. I hold my head high and as Jasper and I split ways, I head for the table and he heads for the line. Rose and Alice are waiting for me watching me cautiously like I'm going to burst into tears. I always hated attention and they know it.
"Hey girls" I greet them like nothing's wrong
"Heyy cutie" replies Rose winking at me
"How's your day going?" Asked Alice picking up a grape from Rose's plate. I shrug my shoulders
"Great and getting better" I replied sarcastically
They both look at me sympathetically, I don't want sympathy!
"Did you guys hear? Edward and Bella are related!", "No way, you're s kidding" "Nope my mom told me, and get this Bella was pregnant! That's why Edward left" The cafeteria was small enough that if we heard it from where we were sitting everyone heard it.
Rose moves her chair back making sure to make as much noise as possible but I beat her to it. I push my chair back and jump on our table
"WHY DON'T YOU ALL JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP?" I shout
Gasps and mumbles could be heard all around
"YES, EDWARD'S GONE. DON'T YOU THINK I KNOW THAT ALREADY!"
"NO I'M NOT PREGNANT AND EVEN IF I WAS IT WOULDN'T BE ANYONES BUISNESS BUT MINE AND EDWARDS. SO STOP! JUST STOP TALKING ABOUT IT."
Everyone stares at me as I jump down from the table and make a run for the door.
I made it home in record time considering I was running. I'm done being sad and depressed. I'm mad! I'm so mad I can't even put it in words.
I scared the crap out of Helen when I walked through the door. She was in the living room watching TV and looked as if she's seen a ghost when she saw me.
"Are you okay?" she asked me
I shook my head and started my walk up the stairs "I want to be alone!" I shouted once I was inside my room
I plugged my iPhone into the stereo and turned it up as high as it would go. Opened my closet door, pulled out a suitcase and began throwing clothes into it. I didn't pay much attention, just threw in anything I could get my hands on, went to the bathroom grabbed my tooth brush and some necessities and dragged the suitcase down the stairs.
Lucky for me Helen was in the shower so I made a clean getaway. I didn't want to have to explain myself to anyone, I was going whether they let me or not.
I jumped in my car and drove out of Forks as quickly as possible, didn't even bother to leave a note or anything. If they wanted to know where I was they would call me eventually.
Once I felt I was at a safe distance from anyone finding me I pulled out my cell phone and called Carlisle.
"Hello?" he sounded half asleep, must be on the other side of the country. Hmm how nice is that.
"It's Bella" I said
"Bella!" he said louder than before "Are you okay?!"
"Fine." I wasn't in the mood to answer his questions. "Where's Renee?" I asked
"I.. I honestly don't know. I thought she was home with you!" I could tell by his voice he wasn't lying
I sigh "Bye." I didn't let him answer
I don't know where I'm going. My first thoughts when I left the house were to find Renee and bring her back, that way at least Lucy would be happy again.
But at the moment, nothing looked more appealing to me than a road trip to anywhere that wasn't Forks, Washington! Just to get away and clear my head.
I was leaving but I wasn't cowering away from my problems. I need some time to get my head on straight.
Making myself the promise on actually returning I continue my drive.
Who knows, maybe along the way I'll figure out why this had to happen.
So there it is, hope you guys enjoyed it :) .
Chapter 5 will be up sometime later this week .
Let me know what you thought. Review :)
