"Hey, beautiful," Edward Cullen says as we pass each other in the hallway the first day of school. Jasper gives him a disbelieving look, but Edward ignores his friend, winking at me instead.

I try to contain my own shocked expression. Never in a million years did I think he would acknowledge my existence in public, especially not after we made out at Lauren Mallory's end of summer beach party. He can have any girl he wants, and often does, but he never speaks to them afterward.

"Hi," I say shyly.

"See you around. Maybe at lunch?"

I smile. "Okay."
