A/N: Update 08/22/2013
I have not read the last book in the series, so I have no idea how canon Denali's act. I only have the little bit in the movie I saw a while back and all the FF I read about them to go off of. So if any of the Denali's are really OOC, sorry but I don't know what OOC is or isn't when it comes to them.
It's the first day of school… again, in another small town... again. Charlie had thought moving to a new town would be a good way to help 'cheer me up' and, to forget. I know his heart was in the right place when he decided this, but it had only made me angry with him. I didn't want to leave Forks; I didn't want to live in Denali, Alaska. I had everything in Forks; everything to remember them by was there: their house, the Pack and more importantly our meadow. Without those reminders that they are in fact real, I don't know what I'll do to keep their memory fresh. One thing was clear though, I may not have wanted to forget them but I never wanted to get lost in their world any more. It hurts too much when they have to leave without me.
The only thing I had left to remember Forks by and what had happened there, was a few pictures of my human friends and my truck. It was the very same truck that helped me figure out the Cullen's secret and allowed me into their world; I didn't want to lose that. Charlie was going to make me get rid of it at first but he eventually realized he would have had to get me another car to replace it or he would have had to be my ride everywhere until I could replace the truck. So in the end, he had it shipped out to be with us. At least at this point I wouldn't have to walk everywhere if I ever needed to go somewhere and Charlie couldn't give me a ride.
It's already lunch on my first day and it feels like deja vu. I had already managed to get a new set of 'friends' that kept me from brooding by myself and becoming the schools new loner. This new group reminded me a lot of my old group, especially since we all practically met the same way, though there were slight differences. I hadn't learned most of their names yet as I honestly didn't plan on seeing them after we graduated. I probably should though since it would be polite since they did adopt me into their social group. Even though I didn't know their names, they seem just as determined as my old group to be friends with me.
The 'Mike' of the group was more persistent than the original and I had never thought that would have been possible. He was going as far as to try and wrap his arm around my shoulders or really just any sort of physical contact with me at all; which is something I definitely didn't do with someone I had known for a while much less someone I just met. This 'Mike' was as ignorant as the other one as well; he doesn't seem to get that I had absolutely no interest in him at all. I really wanted to tell him that my heart lies with a pale, bronze haired boy, but something told me that unless he could see this boy, he wouldn't believe me.
The 'Jessica' and 'Lauren' of this group are bitchier than their counter parts from Forks. Those two wasted no time in pointing out and mocking my unfortunate clumsy nature. I'm pretty they were the cause of most of my 'trips' but I have no actual proof aside from my word, so I wouldn't be saying anything anytime soon. Plus, who would I even tell that would be able to get it to stop? No one, so there's no point.
The 'Eric' of the group seemed a little cooler than the old one, which I guess wasn't terribly hard to do. This one, ironically enough, also claimed to be the eyes and ears of this school and was also on the newspaper club but thankfully he made no attempt to write a story about me. So he got major kudo points for that. Fortunately, this 'Eric' has no interest at all in me, which earned him even more kudo points; because he was already with the 'Angela' of the group.
'Angela', whose name was the only one I had actually bothered to remember, is amazing. Grace, which is her real name, seems just as silent as Angela. Except when 'Jessica', or usually 'Lauren' go too far in their not so snide remarks, she doesn't hesitate in putting those two in their place, which is awesome even though it doesn't shut the two up for long. I'm actually pretty sure a lot of people want to beat those two up or at least teach them a lesson that would involve some sort of physical violence because of how bitchy they can be; but no one has because yet that I know of because I think of Grace somehow. Like Angela would, she forgives those two every time they would do something stupid; which is often and no one really wants to get Grace mad because for some reason because it just, well, it seems wrong somehow.
Thinking of the people, the humans, I had left behind in Forks only made me more depressed. I knew I had grown apart from them these last couple months, but it still hurt to leave them; especially Angela; she was always a good friend even when I wasn't. I had grown used to them in the short time I knew them. They were actually the first people that I had grown even just a little close to; I didn't really have much luck in the whole friend department thing back in Phoenix. I may have ended up drifting away from but I still valued the relationships that I had built with them and I was sad to lose it.
"Bella, the bell rang; aren't we going to walk to math together?" Grace asked, effectively breaking me from my inner musings.
See, she's just like Angela. She was polite enough to not point out the fact that I completely zoned out during practically all of lunch and had even managed to forget to eat; which means I'll have to find something to eat when I get home, if Charlie has gone shopping because I definitely haven't, which I doubt. She could have even ditched me since I was basically ignoring her and everyone else, but she decided to be nice and wait for me and even bring me back to reality.
"Sorry," I half-heartedly mumbled as I gathered my stuff so we could leave.
She gave me a reassuring smile which meant she wasn't bothered by my lack of attentiveness, before we both stood up to throw away our lunch trays and finally go to our next class. The walk to math class was spent in a comfortable silence while we maneuvered our way through the clutter of what is known as the student body to get to our class. We managed to get there with just a couple minutes to spare. I guess Grace was nice enough to not let me escape into my own world during lunch long enough to make us late.
As I walked into the classroom I noticed two things right away. The first being the only available seat was in the back behind 'Lauren'. Funny when I asked who could show me to class 'Lauren' had made it a point to say she doesn't have any classes with the new kid. Luckily that was the same time Grace showed up at the table and offered to walk with me. Knowing how nice 'Lauren' had already been, I'm expecting to get tripped probably every day because she seemed to find me falling amusing.
The second thing I noticed was the set of very un-human like golden eyes looking directly at me from where the, usually very human, teacher would usually sit.
A/N: I know this sounds similar to another Tanya/Bella story, but I just want to make clear that this is going to be totally different. I also want to point out the reason why they moved is because Charlie found out about Bella's cliff diving and other dangerous stunts she did. She went cliff diving with Jacob; so it wasn't actually that dangerous since she was with a pack of wolf type critters, it was more of an adrenaline rush. So when Charlie was offered to transfer to Denali, he accepted it. Bella is also a senior, I don't remember if she was a senior in New Moon, but she is now.
I also don't know that much about Alaska and their endless days or nights and what not; much less about the actual place itself. So I figure since this is all stuff made up in my head, I can just 'adjust' stuff to suit my needs.
And finally, I know this is really short, but this is just to get the story going, future chapters will not be this short.
