Just the Way You Are

Oh her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying

She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Yeah I know, I know
When I compliment her
She won't believe me
And its so, it's so
Sad to think she don't see what I see

But every time she asks me do I look okay
I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

Her nails, her nails
I could kiss them all day if she'd let me
Her laugh, her laugh
She hates but I think It's so sexy

She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Oh you know, you know, you know
I'd never ask you to change
If perfect is what you're searching for
Then just stay the same

So don't even bother asking
If you look okay
You know I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

The way you are
The way you are
Girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

Edward Cullen strode in through the main entrance of Forks High with his head held high, as he glared his way through the overcrowded corridors. He was running a bit late for English class. He ignored the inquisitive stares he received. The annoying ever present fake "plastic" girls giggled and smiled as he walked past. There was no need for him to be a mind reader in order to know what was going on in shallow minded teenagers of the school.

Edward unzipped his black leather jacket as he head towards his locker. He could see Isabella Marie Swan or Bella as she corrected everyone. She was walking slowly, her movements seemed almost unbalanced. Edward felt his heart stop as she stumbled. She never looked up at him as her eyes were cast down as usual. It made him rather angry that he could not see those beautiful chocolate brown eyes of hers. In irritation he slammed his locker shut with his English text book in his hand and raced off to class.

Bella Swan was all he thought about over the years. As Mrs. Keene droned on about Romeo and Juliet Edward thought of how the unpredictability of Bella Swan confused him. She was selfless, beautiful and unforgettable. He soon became lost and engrossed in his Bella land that the distant sound of the bell startled him.

Bella had left her thick, wavy mahogany locks down. Her hair hung in heavy curls just past her tiny waist. Today she wore a stark white blouse with a pair of skinny jeans and knee length boots. She looked completely like an angelic in white as she kept her head down and her eyes on her feet. She was ever self-conscious.

The generically popular, inquisitive Mike Newton purposely walked into Bella who raised her startled gorgeous chocolate brown eyes in alarm. Her pale skin tinged pink making her look impossibly more exquisite.

"I-I'm sorry Mike. I'm such a klutz." Bella said looking so guilty that it made Edward's stomach clench uncomfortably.

"That's alright Bella. You are looking very pretty to…" Mike said when he was interrupted by Edward who pushed him out the way.

"Didn't mommy teach you not to stand in other people's way Newton?" Edward hissed venomously as he mentally patted himself on his back for interrupting their conversation.

As he turned to look for Bella he noticed that she already taken of like a frightened rabbit, eyes wide. Edward smirked; it was probably the first time he heard her speak. Did his presence repel her?

"Cullen, I know chicks dig you and the boys on the team like you but it doesn't mean I like you." Mike stated cockily as Edward turned around to glare at him.

"Who would want you to like them dipshit?" Edward said with a dark smirk on his face as he walked away from the vain idiot.

He stopped walking when he saw Bella at the water fountain quietly reading a book. He walked closer towards her and she suddenly raised her deep soulful eyes which met his. Edward's heart thudded in his chest as he saw Bella turning a delicate shade of red.

"Hi Edward" Jessica said in her annoyingly high nasally voice. Edward frowned and turned to the frizzy brown haired girl who interrupted him from "his Bella".

"Jessica" Edward nodded and turned back to look at Bella who was unfortunately already gone.

"Tomorrow is Valentine's day. Who is your Valentines Edward?" Jessica asked expectantly, batting her eyelashes.

"I have not asked her yet." Edward said annoyed, and without a goodbye quickly rushed away. The girl just couldn't take the hint that he was NOT interested in her.

He wished that he could ask Bella to be his Valentine. It's not that he was afraid of conversing with her, he was afraid that she might reject his advances. He knew that if she turned him down whatever sanity of his that remained would be lost. Edward knew that if he saw anybody else with his Bella he would turn into the monster that lurked beneath the perfect façade he showed everyone. Bella couldn't be anyone else's but Edward's. He would not allow any moronic idiot to steal her away from him. Seeing Bella talk to someone else built up on his paranoia.

The next day was Valentine's Day. The sun was hidden underneath the heavy cloud blanket almost like a bad omen indicating impending doom. But Edward did not let the weather get to him. He wanted more than anything to tell Bella his true feelings but was still afraid. But the thing he feared more than anything was that if Bella said yes to any one of those asshole that think they good enough for her.

Every Valentines since High school Edward had given Bella a card signed by "your secret admirer" This year he had written his own poem:

Is it really love?

Or is it just a passing feeling?

Am I not convinced?

A bit uncertain of the feeling

Is it the way you make me feel?

So warm with joy and laughter

Or could it be

The happiness in seeing you happy

You're on my mind

Most of the day

And at night

I go to bed and pray to an angel

Soft and gentle as you

Would make the sweetest dreams come true

Thinking about you

Alone or in class

Writing your name on

My bathroom window glass

Wishing you were here

To love hold and care for

Wish you were here with me to cherish

And stare into your soft beautiful eyes

As we both travel skies

And mingle with the stars above

But is it really love?

Edward had approached Bella's locker and thievishly slipped the card in to it. He smiled as he reminisced about the first card he had given her. It was a big red heart that he had cut into two pieces. They were two half's of the same whole and without her he felt numb.

After football practice which was held after school he walked to his Volvo which was one of the only two cars left in the parking lot. He recognized the old rusted cherry red Chevy truck that belonged to none other than Bella. The truck looked more like a danger hazard than anything else. Edward wondered about why Bella was still at school and briefly wondered whether to wait to see her.

He decided to wait around for her so he put his bag on the hood of his car; opened it and pretended to be looking for something while waiting for her. He noticed that his English text book was missing so he rummaged through his bag to find it. One of his books fallen out of his bag and it had landed by the feet of the unsuspecting Bella Swan.

"Hey Edward you forgot you English text book in…" Bella's words trailed of as she bent down to pick my book of the floor.

Edward's heart lurched as Bella glanced upon his writing for the very first time. Her eyes widened in recognition and complete shock.

"You're my secret admirer." Bella accused in a shocked voice as Edward stared into her wide chocolate brown eyes. "I thought you hated me and refused to acknowledge my presence." Bella whispered clearly confused.

Edward gasped at her admission. How could she ever think that? She was the love of his life. "How could I ever hate you? I have been in love with you since the day I met you. You are the one who makes my heart beat faster whenever I see you. You make my day just with your presence. I could never hate you." Edward said with so much emotion in his words. "Now that you know how I feel do you return my affections?" Edward asked simply.

Bella stared at Edward with an unreadable expression on her face. "I have always been infatuated by you Edward. But could you, being you, ever see me being your girlfriend? I'm a total klutz and not graceful or athletic at all. I'm not anything special and I'm a nerd and I'm just you average awkward girl." Bella said her soft cheeks now a brilliant shade of red.

"Bella you're amazing just the way you are. Say you'll be my Valentine." Edward said smiling his infamous crooked smile that made her blush and give him a smile in return. Edward looked deep into her eyes as she replied.

"I'm yours Edward" She stated

Edward's heart fluttered as he bent down and brushed his lips to hers, something he had wanted to do for a while. Nothing else mattered to him but Bella in his loving embrace. She was now his and he would never let go.
