A/N: I have always loved "The Blue Lagoon" movies, so I was so excited to hear that a new one was coming out. The made for TV movie "The Blue Lagoon; Awakening" aired and left me a little….disappointed - Too little sex, only three months on the island, and no surprise baby (how do you have teenage unprotected sex for 3 months and no pregnancy?)
Needless to say, I spent the next few days thinking about how I would have made it differently. So I'm taking the parts I liked (characters being in high school), and changing it to fit my preferences. I really hope you'll come along for the ride!
Disclaimer: I do not own "Twilight" or "Blue Lagoon", but if you're a fan of both, then this is the story for you!
Chapter 1 – The Trip
"So what are you taking?" Jessica asked me as we were walking to the cafeteria.
"I'm assuming you're asking about what I'm taking on the trip?" I asked slightly annoyed. Jessica always seemed to begin conversations as if we were in the middle of them, and it could be quite frustrating at times.
"Duh, what do you think I'm talking about? The trip is this weekend; don't tell me you haven't packed yet?"
"Jessica, how long have you known me?"
"Exactly, so what are you bringing?"
"It's a class trip, it's not like I'm going to be sunbathing. I'm just bringing my assigned T shirt, pajamas and some shorts."
"Ugh, you are so boring. I can't believe such a wonderful opportunity to get close to Mike is being wasted on you. Why didn't I sign up for that stupid Marine Biology class?"
"Because you're afraid of fish," I told her evenly.
"Right…but I would have sucked it up if I knew I had a chance to go on a cruise."
"It's not a vacation cruise, its a week on a glorified fishing boat to study deep sea organisms, and believe me, I would change places with you if I could. I just really hope they don't make us dissect anything there. I'm going to be sick enough and I do not want to throw up in front of Mike."
"Oh, so you are interested in Mike," Jessica teased.
I rolled my eyes. "I have a boyfriend Jessica, and no, I'm not interested in Mike. I just don't want to throw up in front of him. He's the captain of the football team so word will definitely get out."
"You can't tell me you're not at all attracted to him though. He's a senior, and everyone's been saying how he just took the class to get closer to you. He wants to fuck you, be grateful."
"Oh, ok, I'll just ask Jacob for a hall pass," I said sarcastically. "I'm sure he wouldn't mind if I screwed around behind his back."
"Oh, Jacob-Schmacob. He's just a sophomore, I'm sure he'd let it go after a while. We're in high school Bella, no more childish puppy romances. You and Jacob were cute in eighth grade, but now it's time to move on to bigger and better things. I mean, you've been together for two years now and you still haven't had sex yet. What does that tell you?"
"That we respect each other."
"No, it means that he's either screwing someone else, or he's gay."
"Oh, whatever. We'll have sex when we're ready."
"But…if Mike were to proposition you while on the trip…."
I couldn't help but smile. Mike was the hottest guy in school, and I was definitely lying when I said I wasn't interested. Jacob was a good guy and my parents really liked him, but we had already been together for so long that he was starting to feel more like a brother than a boyfriend. Perhaps Jessica was right, maybe it was time to move on to bigger and better things.
"Oh, I knew it!" she squealed.
"Why are you so happy about the idea of me and Mike anyway? Don't you like him?"
"Yes, but he likes you and now I can live vicariously through you."
"Hurry, hide me!" Tanya said quickly as she ran toward us.
"What's going on?" I asked amused.
"That Eddie freak is looking for me," she said full of disgust.
"Why?" I asked with a giggle. "Did you forget to pay him for the homework he did for you?"
"No," she said sourly. "I have him in my poetry class and he wrote a poem for me. God, it was so embarrassing."
Jessica and I just stared at her in shock for a moment, and then we both busted out and started laughing. Edward Cullen had to be the biggest loser in the school. He was short and chubby with big geeky glasses and a retainer which made him speak with a lisp and spit when he talked. But the fact that he was in love with one of my best friends was the funniest thing I had ever heard. We were the most popular girls in the sophomore class, how could a freak like him ever think he stood a chance?
"Oh, I think you should be nice and kiss him behind the portables. It would make his year," Jessica choked out through her laughter.
"Make his year? That would be the highlight of his life!" I added.
"Eww, I don't even want to think about it," Tanya said, disturbed by the thought. "I'd rather kiss the pickled toads in bio."
"Oh look, here he comes now," Jessica said while we tried to control our laughter.
"Tanya, I just wanted to apologize for the poem; I didn't realize that it would be embarrassing," Edward mumbled quietly while looking down at the ground. "I should have given it to you in private….so here," he said and held out a piece of folded paper.
I tried to hold it in, I even bit the inside of my cheek to try to let the pain overcome it, but nothing worked and I broke out laughing again. Jessica laughed with me, but Tanya just looked revolted.
"Um…I can see that now's not the best time either," he said completely humiliated by our hysterics. His face turned a bright crimson and I almost felt bad for him – almost. But of course my pity wasn't enough to stop the rolling laughter, and finally Tanya saw the humor in it and laughed with us despite herself.
"Sorry," he mumbled and then turned and practically ran away.
"Wow, that was really mean," Angela came out of nowhere and said.
"What's it to you?" Tanya asked sharply. Angela was our friend freshman year, but she broke away from the group because she thought we were all bitches, which I guess we sort of were. I was never intentionally mean to anyone, but if something was funny, I was definitely going to laugh.
"I just think you guys should really think before you talk. Someday your bullying is going to come back to bite you in your asses," Angela said.
Bullying? Is that what we were doing? Bullying was pushing and sticking heads in toilets and such, a little laughter never hurt anyone… at least that was what I told myself.
"Oh, we're so scared," Jessica said mockingly. "Come on guys, let's ditch the rest of the day and buy Bella a new bikini for her trip."
I spent the next few days thinking about my relationship with Jake. He really was a great guy and there wasn't a girl in school who wouldn't want to be with him, but Mike was just…Mike. He was a god on legs and the thought of being with him in that way actually made me flustered. I wanted him, and if he made a pass at me while on the ship, I'd definitely lose my virginity. Jessica was right, I needed to be prepared for it and buy myself some sexy underwear.
When Friday finally came, the Forks High Marine biology classes went by bus to the marina, where we boarded the ship and set sail for the horizon. Most of the kids in the elective class were geeks and school losers, but Mike and a couple others were hopefully going to save me from a dreadfully boring week at sea.
There were eight cabins for the students, each one was cramped and squished in four kids. Even in the cold northwest, it was stuffy and hot inside the tight space, so most of the kids spent their free time on deck and that's where I hung with Mike and the rest of the tolerable kids.
"This is so boring," Vicky said one evening. "I swear I fell asleep during the lecture today."
"You always fall asleep during lectures," James, her boyfriend said.
"Yeah well. The teachers here watch us like hawks. I tried to sneak into your cabin last night but they wouldn't give us a break."
"You can always give me a BJ now," he said carelessly.
"There's nowhere to be alone," Vicky argued.
"Ah, don't worry about me and Bella, we won't watch," Mike assured them with a grin. He wrapped his arm around my shoulder, and turned us so we were facing out over the edge of the boat at the moon reflecting on the water.
"Wow, it's so beautiful," I said after an uncomfortable minute of listening to James's moans behind us.
"Yeah, it's one of those dropping moons," Mike replied.
"Dropping moons? Don't you mean a crescent moon?" I asked with a flirtatious giggle.
"No, a dropping moon, you know where it's so pretty that it makes people drop their pants just by standing under it."
"Wow," I said after a moment.
"Yeah, that was kind of a bad one, huh?" he said with a laugh.
"Yes, definitely bad….Besides, if you wanted my panties down, you could have just come out and said so," I said boldly.
He looked at me shocked. "Really?"
I shrugged. "Maybe if we were alone," I said suggestively. I couldn't believe how forward I was being. I wasn't usually like that, especially when it came to hot guys, but I convinced myself that this was my moment. After the trip was over I needed to make a decision about Jacob and deal with the consequences; I needed to either recommit and move to the next step, or move on and break ties with him. It was a hard decision.
Mike leaned down and kissed me softly on the lips….and then there it was….motion sickness. I pulled away from him just in time to vomit over the side of the boat.
"Whoa, I didn't know you would be that disgusted by kissing me," Mike joked. "You're really going to have to go back to your cabin and wash your mouth out before we kiss anymore…and I definitely don't want my cock smelling like vomit so just come find me when you've cleaned yourself up."
I felt terrible – literally. My entire body was trembling from the sudden nausea, and all that jerk could do was think about his cock and make jokes? Fucking prick.
But because I still had a thing for him and didn't want to waste my chance, I decided to head back to my cabin to brush my teeth.
As I was trying to make my way back to the cabins however, my head started spinning and suddenly I felt like I was falling. The next thing I knew, I was waking up on a dingy with the bright sun beating down on my face, and the boat was nowhere in sight.
I had to be dreaming. It was just a terrible nightmare and I'd wake back up in the cabin… only it didn't feel like a dream.
"Don't sit up too fast, you might start throwing up again," an unfamiliar voice said. My vision was blurry, but I tried to focus my eyes and see who was there with me…. Yep, it was definitely a nightmare.
"Wha…what's going on, what happened?" I asked groggily.
"Mr. Molina and I were working on a ocean night project, so we were down here in the dingy, but he left to get something out of his cabin and that's when you fell out of the boat," Edward the Geek Cullen explained calmly.
"I fell out of the boat?" I said incredulously. "Well, how did I get on this dingy, and WHERE DID THE BOAT GO?" I shouted. "I thought a dingy was supposed to be tied to the boat, how did this dingy get untied?"
I was beyond pissed and beginning to panic.
"Well, I saw you fall in, so I untied the dingy to row over to you. You were unconscious," Edward explained hesitantly.
"Why didn't you jump out and bring me back to the boat, instead of untying the dingy?"
He shrugged sheepishly. "I can't swim."
"Great. Just fucking amazing. We're on a tiny blowup raft in the middle of the Pacific Ocean somewhere, and you can't swim. Where's the paddle?"
"I dropped it in the water," he mumbled. I just glared at him so he explained. "I tried to get to you with the paddle but then it slipped out of my hands. I see now my mistakes and given the chance to do it over again I'm sure I would have been more successful."
"What? Who are you; what kind of person talks like that?" I asked frustrated. I didn't even realize Edward was even on the trip with us, not that I would have cared, and I definitely wasn't surprised. Guys like him lived for geeky things like Marine Biology and such. I just wished I was stranded with someone like Mike instead; someone who was strong and could actually swim – then again, he's probably spend that time trying to get me to give him a blow job instead of figuring out a way back to the boat.
"Sorry, I've never really had any friends my own age before, so I don't really know how to talk," he said while pushing his glasses up.
"Whatever. Just, tell me which way the boat went."
"That way," he said, pointing to his left. "Or maybe it was that way," he said, pointing in the opposite direction.
"How could you not know?"
"It was dark, and by the time morning came the boat was gone."
"Oh my god, I'm going to die," I whined to myself.
"The probability is forty-sixty right now, but with each hour that passes our chances of survival goes down," he said casually.
"No, someone will find us. I'm sure they know we're missing by now and they've already called in the coast guard. We just have to sit back and wait. A boat, or a helicopter; someone will come."
We waited…and waited….and waited some more.
The sun was so hot on my skin that I was sure I was turning into one big blister. Edward took off his sweatshirt and kept dipping it in the water to try to cool off; he offered to let me use it, but I was stubborn and refused. Everything about the guy disgusted me, and I wasn't about to wrap his nasty wet sweat shirt on my head.
When the sun set with no sign of help, I started to panic again. "What are we going to do? We can't stay on this thing forever. I'm hungry, my mouth is parched and…"
"Just calm down," he said softly. "If you get yourself worked up you'll just waste more energy."
"Calm down? We're in the middle -"
"Yeah, and we're never going to get home if you keep freaking out like that!" he shouted at me. I had hardly ever heard him speak louder than a mumble before, so his outburst was more than unexpected.
We didn't speak for the rest of the night; I just scooted down in the dingy and tried to sleep. The fact that the small raft made it impossible to stretch or lay anywhere that I wasn't touching Edward was disturbing, but after a few hours I just lost the energy to care.
By the second day on the boat without food or water, I was starting to get delirious. The sun and ocean was playing tricks on my mind and I could have sworn I saw land.
"Is that…" My throat was so dry that I couldn't speak much, but Edward followed my stare and saw what I was looking at.
"An island," he croaked. He didn't sound much better than how I was feeling, but seeing land gave us renewed hope.
We both put our arms in the water and tried to paddle the dingy closer to the island, but it wasn't working.
"Swim," I said as loud as I could.
"I can't," he replied in a panic.
"For heaven's sake," I said with a sudden bout of adrenalin coursing through my veins. I pulled the sole life-vest out from under the dingy bench, and threw it at him before jumping into the water. I wasn't sure if he jumped in after me or not, but I refused to stop swimming. Nothing was going to keep me from that island; I only hoped it had some fresh water and something edible…..
A/N: Well, Edward is a geek and Bella is a bitch, obviously we have a long way to go with these two. Anyone interested?
