The Cullens adopted me when I was six. My parents died in a huge car accident on their way to pick me up from school. It was luck that the Cullens even found me. Alice just found me in a foster home a few days after and convinced her parents to adopt me. It was strange. I found out that they were vampires before they adopted me. Strangely enough I felt safe with them. I still do.
I took me 4 years to stop expecting my parents to come get me one day. I didn't fully get over their death until I turned 10. That was 5 years ago and in Alaska. Now I'm 15 and we live in Forks. We go back school in a week and I'm excited. Excited is an understatement. I'm as bouncy as Alice before we go shopping and everyone knows why. Mike!
Mike is my boyfriend. He's been my boyfriend since them middle of my freshmen year. So since January until now, August. Seven months. He is the perfect boyfriend. Now I go back to seeing him almost every day instead of like twice a week.
Edward doesn't trust Mike though. We stopped speaking at one point for like a week because of that. Edward said that Mike was controlling and couldn't control his anger. Stupid vampire. It took almost a month for me to convince Edward that Mike wasn't like that.
"Bella, time to get up." Alice's voice sang from far away. "Come on sleepy head, don't you want to see your boyfriend?"
I got up out of my sleep quickly with a huge smile on my face. "Okay, okay I'm up."
I looked at my alarm clock and saw that it was only 6. Everyone was probably ready to go and would have to wait an hour for me to be ready, half an hour for me to eat breakfast, and then we could go. Sometimes it sucked being the only human in the house.
"Alice!" I called when I got out of the shower. "Can you flat iron my hair?"
"Sure." She said dancing into my room.
By 7:05 my hair was done and I looked spectacular. The great thing about Alice is that she would never let you leave the looking a mess. (It is a curse once a month though.) One thing Mike was very specific about is appearances. He liked everything looking perfect. That was never a problem between us and never will be with a sister like Alice.
I was in a pair of black jeans, a yellow shirt, and a black cardigan. I had my black heels in my hand as I walked downstairs. I think from living with vampires my whole life I was more graceful than most girls. That and the fact that I've been in dance classes since I moved in with the Cullens.
"Someone looks cute." Alice said as I walked into the kitchen. I laughed and sat down at the island.
"What would you like for breakfast sweetie?" Esme said walking into the kitchen.
"Fruit loops." I laughed getting up and getting everything I needed for my quick breakfast.
"Calm down Boo, you're getting as bad as Alice." Emmett said walking into the kitchen as I ate.
I stuck my tongue at him and kept on bouncing. I couldn't help it. I was beyond excited. I haven't seen Mike in 2 weeks. Last week we were getting every last minute thing ready for school and the week before that we went to visit the Denalis.
"Come on kiddo it's 7:45" Jasper said walking into the kitchen while everyone else left.
"Where's Edward?" I asked rinsing my bowl and putting it in the dishwasher.
"In his car waiting for you."
I smiled and pulled my heels on. I walked outside and into the passenger seat of Edward's car. We exchanged brief good mornings and I left it at that, noticing that Edward was in a bad mood. He drove a lot slower than usual. The 5 minute drive took us 15 minutes. We pulled into our parking spot at exactly 8 and I saw Mike leaned against his car smiling in my direction.
A smile spread across my face. I grabbed my bag, jumped out of the car and practically flew across into Mike's arms. My heart was thumping loudly.
"Hey baby." Mike smiled kissing me. Another thing Mike was big on is PDA. He like people knowing that he was my boyfriend. Better yet he liked people knowing that I was his girlfriend. It was a little possessive, but not too much.
Mike grabbed my bag and slung it over his shoulder. I went in my pocket and pulled out my schedule and handed it to him.
"You're classes aren't too far from mine. We even have the same lunch period and 3rd period. You're so damn smart." Mike leaned down and kissed me again.
Mike is a junior and I'm only a sophomore. We aren't supposed to have classes together until at least next year. Sophomores rarely had classes with older kids. Let's just say having vampires as siblings is an educational experience. I'm like 3 times smarter than my grade and always have been.
Mike walked me to English and kissed me before heading to his own class. I sat at the back of the classroom and pulled out my only notebook. The bell rang and kids filed into the classroom. A guy sat next to me and looked at me.
"Hey, my name is Jacob."
"Bella" I smiled and shook his hand.
During the class Jacob and I got to know about each other instead of listening to the teacher's rules and procedures. We got our supply list for that class and laughed at the obviousness of what we would need. We got interrupted a bunch of times from people saying hi to me and me introducing them to Jacob. We compared schedules and saw that we have 1st period, lunch, and gym together.
"I see you're very popular." Jacob said as we walked out of class together.
I laughed and pushed him lightly. "Not even. I just get along with people."
"Bella" A voice called.
I looked to my left and smiled at Mike. He looked a little angry.
"What's wrong?" I asked when he was next to me.
He leaned forward and kissed me roughly. I nonchalantly pushed him back, confused.
"Jacob, this is my boyfriend Mike. Mike, this is my friend Jacob."
"Nice to meet you" Mike said briskly. He grabbed my hand and pulled me away.
"I'll catch you later." I called to Jacob.
I tagged along behind Mike without much of a choice. He was still pulling me angrily.
"Mike what's wrong?" I asked pulling against him when we got outside.
He stopped and spun on me. "What the hell was that about?" He asked angrily, making sure not to scream and draw attention to us. Everyone had to think we had the perfect relationship.
"What? I should be asking you that. Why were you so mean towards Jacob? He didn't do anything to you." I wasn't angry; I wanted to know what the problem was.
"Why are you two all buddy buddy? Touching each other and what not!"
"Babe you can't be serious. You know I talk to everyone. What's wrong now?"
Mike didn't answer. I turned around and stepped forward to walk away. Suddenly Mike grabbed me and pulled me back towards him roughly.
"Don't walk away from me!" He almost screamed.
I was facing him and his hands were squeezing my arms painfully. Tears sprang to my eyes from the pain I wasn't used to.
"Mike you're hurting me." I whispered.
He dropped my arms quickly. "Babe I'm so sorry." He said quickly. "I just love you so much. I don't want to lose you."
"I love you too." I said willing the tears to leave my eyes.
Mike grabbed my hand and my bag. "Smile" He ordered as we walked to my class. I smiled; afraid I'd make him angry again.
"I love you." He said kissing me in front of my class.
"I love you too." I answered.
My arms throbbed painfully. For once I was truly scared of Mike and his anger. But I love him so I forgive him.
