They're Not Okay (I Promise)

Summary:
Okee, SO... This is basically My Chemical Romance's "I'm not Okay (I Promise)" music video written out and... Cullenified. XD I absolutely love the video, and I *highly* recommend watching it before you read this, or you aren't going to get it AT ALL.


Notes:
I changed the MCR members into Cullens, so if it's confusing, here's basically the conversion: Edward = Gerard, Emmett = Roy, Alice = Mikey, Jasper = Frank, and then Rosalie's just kinda there ^^ enjoy! (PS: This is *BEFORE* Bella comes to Forks)


1. Chapter 1

Rating 5/5   Word Count 1058   Review this Chapter

Emmett sits alongside Edward in front of their large school campus, thinking about how they are obviously outsiders at Forks High. Unthinkingly, he begins to voice this opinion through Edward's imperfections. "You like Claude Debussy, Audrey Hepburn, 50's music, Harry Houdini, and croquet. You don't have a girlfriend, you can't dance, and you don't know karate. Face it, you're never gonna make it." Edward looks at his brother evenly and sighs. "I don't want to make it," he says flatly. "I just want it."


*


Edward sits awkwardly in the middle of a group of 5 teenage couples. All of them are dressed quite casually, and he's the only one in proper school uniform. Each pair runs forward hand in hand, while he stares on, ALONE.


*


Emmett, Jasper, Edward, Rosalie, and Alice are perched atop the school steps, pretending to sip calmly from their thermoses and eat from their lunch boxes. Quietly sitting in uniform, Alice suddenly has a vision but doesn't have time to warn Jasper. Approximately 1.5 seconds later, Jasper is covered in the remains of a laughing Mike Newton's sandwich. He looks to Edward, but the youngest Cullen simply shakes his head. They're all learning to cope with REJECTION.


*


Jasper snaps on his safety goggles and lab apron in chemistry class hastily. There's no time to feel CONFUSED.


*


Swirling idly in the office chair at his desk, Emmett knows better than to feel LOST.


*


Alice taps her feet and bites her perfect nails. She can feel something is going to happen today, and it makers her more than a little ANXIOUS.


*


Glaring at the "F" in front of him, Edward decides to fool his neighbors into thinking he's a complete idiot. He turns in his chair, smiles, and pulls his fist down in a manner that says, "Score!". Noticing this, an annoyed Tyler Crowley leans across the aisle to punch him in the face. Though he feels no pain, Edward acts as if he was injured by the punch. The bronze haired boy has never felt so utterly WRONG or WRONGED.


*


Doodling his name in crayon all over his Calculus homework, Emmett wonders what the small, waxy, coloring device could possibly taste like. He runs it along his tongue to see if it is indeed edible, and then bites the yellow crayon in two with his razor sharp teeth.


*


Jasper, having completed his chemical compound in chemistry, decides to sample the orange concoction in front of him. Gagging shortly after a small mouthful, he sets the beaker full of substance back down on the table.


*


Taking a break from their hectic school day, the vampire siblings gather around a small CD player to listen as My Chemical Romance debuts their new song, "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)". Unconsciously running a hand through her golden hair, Rosalie silently commits the song to memory. Emmett embraces her, and she wishes she could let loose a tear for the hell high school had become.


*


Jasper hides snickering in an unsuspecting freshman's locker. Through the narrow slits in the faded red metal he can see her approaching. Just as she reaches for the handle, he bursts out of the door, giving her an amused smile. The freshman screeches, drops her books, and runs terrified in the opposite direction. Innocently, Jasper closes the locker behind him as he steps out. He adjusts his tie, wondering if he was able to make the 14 year old ANGRY.


*


Rosalie lingers in the busy hallway, watching as Eric Yorkie opens his locker. She can smell the drugs hidden inside, and it's no surprise to her when several bottles fall to the floor. As students pass him with looks of distaste and revulsion, the statuesque blonde can't help but notice that Eric is terribly ASHAMED.


*


Sitting close to an infatuated Lauren Mallory after Gym, Jasper finds himself in an awkward position. He glances at her, discovering she is wearing her cheerleading gear, and also the speck dancing around on her eyelash. "You know, you've got something in your eye," he says calmly to her. As he leans forward to remove the speck, Lauren tilts her head, thinking Jasper must have finally come to his senses and decided to kiss her. However, she is horribly mistaken when Jasper pinches her eyelashes, pulling the speck off and wiping it on the nasal blonde's shirt.


*


Alice looks around the school campus, trying to determine where the principle's office is. Finding her destination, Alice skips to the main building, turns on the announcement microphone, and inserts a tape. It's times like these when it pays to be a vampire, she thinks to herself. The small girl presses play on the tape player, and the piano section of "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)" floods the school.


*


The Cullens sit in the school library, watching dully as the humans attempt to dance gracefully to the music playing (courtesy of Alice).


*


As he hits his croquet ball, Edward looks up to see how far his ball will travel. Casually wiping his bronze hair out of his eyes, he's tackled quite suddenly by a laughing Ben Cheney. While Edward lies frustrated on the ground, Ben runs back towards the gym, no doubt afraid of the tall boy's reaction.


*


As the cheerleader practice their new routine, Edward runs behind them. With an inhuman snarl and leap, he tackles the dancing mascot, knowing it's Mike Newton under the puppy-faced mask. He's closely followed by Emmett and Jasper, and a spiteful Rosalie and Alice. "Be prepared to feel REVENGE!" Emmett yells at the pathetic human struggling beneath his grasp.


*


Tyler, Mike, Eric, Ben, and Lee Stephens (he randomly decided to show up) stroll down the hallway to meet the waiting fury of the Cullens. Armed with bats and other sports equipment, they think they're ready for anything.


*


Edward, Jasper, Alice, Emmett, and Rosalie glide gracefully down the hall to destroy the infuriating high school punks that were apparently out to get them. Swinging their croquet mallets in a deadly fashion, they already know this is a battle they can win.


*


In a final clash of vampires and humans, three cheers for sweet revenge are most definitely in order :D
