A/N: I didn't get as many reviews as I had hoped for the first chapter but I'm hoping people will be more willing to let me know what they think as the story goes on... To those of you who did review it was greatly appreciated...
'You've got the most unbelievable blue eyes I've ever seen'
When I woke up the next day it was well after one thirty and it didn't surprise me that it was still pouring down rain outside and by the sound of it there was no way it was going to ease up anytime soon.
I showered and dressed in jeans, a white singlet, grey hoodie and threw on my chucks before making my way down to the kitchen to see what the plan was for me registering at the high school.
The house was strangely quiet as I made my way down the stairs but then again Alice would be at school and Charlie wasn't exactly the type of person who made a lot of noise, I guess I was just used to all the commotion that Renee would make during the day.
Once I made it to the kitchen I was surprised to find that Charlie wasn't anywhere to be found but what I did find was a note that had been left for me on the table that read
Got called into work this morning, didn't want to wake you.
Directions to the school are written below.
'And keys to the house and truck would be where' I thought to myself.
House and truck keys are hanging up by the door.
I actually found myself to be rather relieved that Charlie wasn't going to be taking me to register because nothing screams everybody look at me more than showing up in a police cruiser with the Chief himself.
I wasn't too hungry today so I settled on eating a piece of dry toast and having a cup of tea before I made my way outside and into the chilly Forks weather.
As soon as the front door was closed and locked I made a frantic dash for the safety of my truck. I unlocked the door and scrambled inside slamming the heavy door behind me.
I was a little hesitant at first as to whether or not the thing would even start but I was pleasantly surprised that when I turned the key in the ignition the trucks engine rumbled to life. As soon as the truck had started I cranked the heater up as high as it would go.
I had a quick look at the directions Charlie had left me and then tossed them onto the passenger seat before pulling out of the driveway. How hard could it be to find anyway, Forks was only tiny after all.
The rain was bucketing down for the entire drive and the roads were very slippery, because I wasn't used to driving such a monster of a vehicle I made sure to drive a little under the speed limit just to be safe.
When I eventually got to the school all the parking spaces were filled which left me to park at the far end of the lot which also happened to be the furthest away from the administration building.
I entered the small room just inside the administration building that said Office and proceeded to wait behind the person who was currently at the desk. He was a young man who stood around what had to be at least 6'3 and from the sound of things he had arrived back late after lunch and was trying to get himself out of serving a detention.
"Jasper this is the fourth time this month" the woman sitting behind the desk told him.
"I know but I swear that it will be the last ma'am" he replied in a southern sounding accent.
"Alright I'll let you off one last time but this is your last chance young man, next time it's detention" she said trying to sound stern.
"You're a doll," he answered which in turn caused the woman to blush a little.
'Your old enough to be his mother' I thought to myself, holding back the giggle that was threatening to come out at any given moment.
I didn't realize how close behind him I had been standing until he turned around and smacked directly into me.
"Sorry sugar, I didn't see you there" he said as he placed his hand on my arm to steady me.
I looked up to answer him and tell him I was fine but I found myself unable to speak, my words were stuck in my throat as I continued to stare at him.
He was by far the best looking guy I had ever laid eyes on. He had messy blonde hair, a perfect mouth which at the moment was smirking at me and the most unbelievable blue eyes I had ever seen.
"Are you okay?" he asked, shaking me out of my daze.
"Uh-huh, I'm fine" I finally managed to stammer out sounding anything but intelligent.
"I'm Jasper," he said, holding his hand out to me and momentarily blinding me with the smile that graced his lips.
"Isabella" I managed to answer as I shook his hand.
As soon as our skin touched I felt as though I had been shocked and I immediately pulled back and stuffed my hands into the pockets of my hoodie. Jasper continued to look at me with an expression that I wasn't able to figure out.
"Jasper Whitlock stop harassing the new student and get your behind to class" the woman behind the desk called out, I silently thanked her for rescuing me from this awkward moment.
"Pleasure to meet you Isabella, I'll be sure to keep an eye out for you" he said with a wink before he exited the office, leaving me standing there like a complete fool.
'Forget it Bella' I thought to myself.
"Miss Swan I presume" the woman asked
"That's me" I answered
"We've been expecting you. I'm Mrs. Cope, your dad called this morning and told us you'd be coming by this afternoon," she said as she handed me a stack of forms that I needed to fill out.
When I was finished with all my paperwork I was given a map, a list of stuff I would need and my class schedule.
"Well that's everything" Mrs. Cope said.
"Great, thanks for your help with all of this" I answered.
"Anytime Isabella, I'll see you bright and early tomorrow morning," she sang out as I was making my way out of the building.
I filled in the rest of the day by going and buying all of the things that were on my supply list, it was just the usual stuff, books, binders, pens and a bunch of other junk.
When I finally decided I should head back to Charlie's I was shocked to see that it was getting close to six o'clock. As I pulled up in front of the house I was surprised to see that both the cruiser and Alice's car were parked in the driveway. I grabbed all of my new school supplies, locked the truck and headed inside.
"Bella is that you" Charlie called when I got inside.
"Yeah it's me, just let me dump this stuff up in my room and I'll be right down" I called out before going upstairs.
Once back downstairs I made my way into the kitchen and was shocked at the sight before me. Alice and Charlie were both in there making dinner together.
"We're making your favorite Bella" Alice sang as she added some macaroni to the pot on the stove.
"You still like mac and cheese right" Charlie asked looking worried.
"Yeah it's still my favorite," I answered, noting the look of relief that washed over his face.
"I remember two summers ago when you refused to eat anything else" Alice laughed as she continued stirring.
"Well my mac and cheese obsession isn't that serious anymore I promise," I told her.
We sat down and ate dinner as a family around the kitchen table and talked about what we had done during the day. When we were finished dinner Alice and Charlie told me to go and relax while they cleaned up.
"When I finish down here we'll have some serious sister time if you're up to it" Alice said as I left the kitchen.
"That'd be nice" I called out, as I made my way upstairs.
When Alice and I were both showered and dressed in our pajamas we took up residence in her bedroom.
Alice's room was a place that I did not feel at home in. Everything was in perfect order and I honestly didn't think that I had ever seen so much pink in my life. It was just way to girly for my liking.
"Sorry if I seemed a little standoffish last night I just had a really bad evening" she apologized straight away.
"What happened that was so bad" I asked, curious as to what could have possibly happened that caused her to blow off her own sister.
"Well I went on a date with this guy from school and even though I already knew he was a jerk he turned out to be much worse than I anticipated, he even made me pay for my own dinner" she said sounding outraged.
"If you knew he was a jerk why did you agree to go out with him in the first place" I asked, curious to hear her response.
"Well there's this other guy that I like and I thought that if I went out with the captain of the football team it would make him jealous" she answered sounding sheepish.
I was confused. Alice was gorgeous and I couldn't understand why she would even need to make anyone jealous guys should be falling at her feet.
"Why didn't you just ask out the guy that you really like?" I questioned.
"Bells I have asked him out on numerous occasions and the answer always remains the same" she said sounding frustrated.
"Care to elaborate" I chuckled.
"He always tells me that he doesn't date. You should see him Bella he is absolutely gorgeous and he is one of the most popular guys in school, I'll introduce you tomorrow" she said.
"Maybe I'll be able to knock some sense into this guy for you," I laughed.
"I just might let you," she giggled.
Alice and I spent the next two hours talking about anything and everything, it was nice and I only hoped that things would stay like this between us for the rest of the time that I was here.
Around ten o'clock we finally decided it was time to call it a night. I headed back to my room and before I got into bed I made sure that I had my iPod to drown out the sound of the rain because I needed a good nights sleep before I started my first official day at Forks high school tomorrow.
Chapter 2 is done and dusted...
