"Edward." my mom said to me, for the billionth time today, "You don't have to do this."
"I know, but I want to go." I lied. It's only for a summer.
A few hours later, I was in Forks airport. It was cold and bleak, but I wanted to get away from mom and Phil for just a little while. I looked around the airport's lounge, scanning around for Charlie. I went and sat down, but someone tapped me on the shoulder.
"Edward!" Charlie gasped. "Hey, dad!" I replied, giving him a one-armed hug. "You haven't changed a bit, have you, kiddo?" Charlie said.
Charlie is Chief Masen at the police station.
A few minutes later, we were in the car. It was silent, apart from the wind blowing past us. "Do you remember Harry Clearwater?" Charlie asked me. "He's in a wheelchair, right? Yeah, I remember him." I said. "Yes. So, because he's disabled, he sold me his Chevy truck. I decided to give it to you. House-warming present." Charlie replied, turning into the drive. In our garden, there was an orange truck, a man in a wheelchair, and a dark-skinned girl with glossy black hair. "Oh my god, thanks dad!" I said, getting out my suitcases.
"Hi, you're Edward, right? I'm Leah Clearwater." said the dark-skinned girl. "We used to make mud pies when we were little." She continued. "Oh yeah!" I said, smiling. "So, do you like the truck?" Leah asked. "Yeah, I love it!" I replied. "I'm glad. Well, got to go now, I'll see you later, Edward!" Leah ran off with her dad.
"They seem nice." I said, walking in. It only took me one trip to get all my stuff upstairs. My room hadn't changed at all. "I hope you like the duvet... The sales assistant suggested green." Charlie asked, clomping upstairs. "Yeah, green's cool." I said. "Edward, don't forget about your first day at Forks High, tomorrow."
Oh no. I completely forgot about school.
In the morning, I drove to school in the truck. I got to school, and went to reception.
"Hello, you must be Edward Masen, yes?" said the receptionist, Mrs Cope.
"Yes." I said. "Here is your schedule and your slip." Mrs Cope said, handing me some drab looking papers. "Thank-you." I said, walking away. I looked at my schedule and headed to building 4, Room 280, for Spanish.
"Hi, you're Edmund Masen, right?" said a tall girl. "Edward." I corrected her.
"So, where you off to now?" She asked. "Spanish." I said. "Same! I'll walk with you. I'm Elly by the way," Elly said, grinning at me.
At least I've met someone.
After Spanish, I had English and gym, where I met Lydia, a shy girl who seemed really nice, Josh and Michal. We all sat down at one table.
That's when i saw them.
"Who are they?" I asked Elly. "Oh them? They're the Cullens. The pixie-like one is Alice, and the boy with her is Jasper. The blonde girl is Rosalie, and the buff boy is Emmett. They are all adopted by , this really hot doctor." Elly said. "What about her?" I asked. "Oh, that's Krysta Cullen. She's the only single. But don't get your hopes up. None of the people here are good enough for the Cullens." Elly said.
The Cullens had this weird feeling about them. They all had the same white, pale skin, and they all had the same golden orange eyes. Krysta was the only one that caught my attention. She was beautiful, with her medium length brunette hair, and her old clothing, that suited her very well. I stared at her for most of the hour, but sometimes I looked away as because she caught me staring.
