My room hadn’t changed much, save the dinosaur computer sitting at my desk. I guessed that Charlie had put it there, because it hadn’t been there this morning. Plopping down on my bed, I let Aiden seep into my thoughts yet again.
I could still picture his face perfectly. He had a sort of baby face. A few black curls hung down the sides of his face but the rest of his hair was cropped short. He had a slightly curved nose, and the most amazing green eyes. I loved his smile the most though. It was practically contagious. Which yet again reminded me how unhappy I was. I sighed and rolled onto my side.
I don’t know how I could’ve done this. I’d never been good at making friends, hence Aiden had been the only friend I’d had in a while. I didn’t know what was wrong with me though. It was one of those things where people are like “well, she’s ok,” but they never actually try to be friends with you. Maybe I wasn’t interesting enough. It had crossed my mind many times to tell people I was related to Johnny Depp, but I always held it. The last thing I needed was to get caught up in a lie.
“Hey, Bells, I’m leaving for Harry’s now. I’ll be back around eight, okay?” Charlie called from downstairs.
“Yeah,” I called back. “Have fun.”
I heard the front door shut and I immediately went over to my closet. Throwing on a random pair of jeans, my favorite black hoodie, and my shoes, I went back downstairs. There didn’t seem like much to do in the house so I decided to take a walk.
The driveway was slippery and I almost fell a dozen times on my way down. I’d always been clumsy. The air around me felt almost suffocating, filled with miniscule green particles I couldn’t see. Rain came down in heavy sheets, but I didn’t think anything of it. I didn’t own an umbrella anyway.
When I stopped walking, I realized how far I’d gone. I ended up walking past the school, which I almost didn’t realize was actually a school. It looked more like a bunch of houses stuck closely together. Only a few cars were parked in the parking lot, most likely from teachers and staff doing weekend work.
There wasn’t much to Forks from what I could see. Mostly forests - green and unfamiliar. Turning into the trees, I was protected from the rain. I found a path a few feet from where I’d come in and started following it. Birds in the trees sang songs, and squirrels climbed branches with ease. Above me, thin strips of light made their way between the high leaves and branches. In Phoenix it was all concrete and cactuses - this was a nice change.
The forest almost felt welcoming, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that something wasn’t right. Everything suddenly got quieted. It was still all around me, and the birds weren’t singing. I instantly regretted coming into it and turned around.
I almost screamed when I found a boy standing in front of me. He was taller than me, with blond hair, and a baby face a lot like Aiden’s.
“Hi,” he chirped, a smile spreading across his face. “I’m Mike. Mike Newton.”
“Bella Swan,” I said, and his grin got bigger.
“Charlie’s daughter? He’s always raving about you.” I blushed. “Looks like he was right to,” he said eyeing me, and my blush deepened about fifty shades.
“You moving here or just coming to visit?”
“Uh… moving here.”
“Awesome,” he said. His loud voice seemed so mismatched with the quiet forest. “If you tell me you’re home schooled I’m going to be very disappointed.”
I forced out a laugh. “No, I’ll be going to the high school.” I pointed the general direction of it and he laughed. “What?”
He laughed again. “The high school’s that way,” he said. “Ever tried a compass?” He playfully smacked my arm. I had to force yet another laugh.
“Well,” he concluded, “I have to go. My parents are probably wondering where I am. I’ll be seeing you tomorrow?” I nodded. “Bye, Bella.”
Sighing, i walked back the way I came. At least now I’d know someone at school tomorrow.
