-On My Way-

I was off on my 3,064-mile journey to Petersburg Virginia. I finally got my emotions in check. I just hope I don’t become home sick. I was listening to the radio when my cell phone rang.

“Hello?”

“Bella! You left without saying goodbye to me.”

“I am sorry Jacob. I had a very emotional morning with Charlie and I guess I forgot about you.”

“Jeez Bella, I can see where I rate on your list.” Jacob chuckled. “I understand but I don’t think Keshia here will forgive you that easily though.”

“I take it she wants to talk to me.”

“Yes, but maybe I will make her wait a few minutes to really get her angry.”

“Jacob, just give her the phone.”

“Sure, sure.”

“Bella, how could you for get all about me after everything we have been through?”

“You make it sound like I am never going to see you again.”

“I’m not sure if you will make your way back home.”

“Keshia, chill out. You know me better than anyone else. I will be back.”

“I know I just had to give you a hard time. So what made you forget about us?”

“My absurd emotions.” I said rolling my eyes.

“Saying goodbye to Charlie was really that hard, huh?”

“Yes.”

“Well I’ll let you go so you can concentrate on the road. You better call me when you get there.”

“I will. Bye Keshia.”

“Bye.”I went back to listening to the radio.

After two days of driving I finally reached the state of Virginia. I figured that I would call Renee and tell her I was almost there

Hello?”

“Hi mom.”

“Bella it’s nice to hear for you. So are you there?”

“No, I have a couple more hours of driving. I thought I would call you and tell you that I was almost there.”

“I am glad you did. I was driving Phil crazy, with all of my worrying.”

“I told you not to worry.”

“I know, but it is what a mother does best.” We both started laughing at that comment.

“Mom, I will call you later after I am settled in.”

“Okay. Love you Bella.”

“Love you too.”

“Bye.” I hung up the phone and was wondering how big the college was.

I became nervous when I seen the sign: Welcome to Petersburg. I made it. There was another sign that said 6 miles to VSU.When the college came into view I gasped. It wasn’t huge but it wasn’t small either.

I pulled on to campus and tried to find the apartment building I would be staying in. I found it and I hoped I was the first one, of the three of us who would be sharing this space, to arrive. I had no such luck.

“You must be Isabella Swan.” This little pixie like person said. “I am Alice.”

“Hi, Alice. Yes, I'm Isabella, but I prefer to be called Bella.” I said.

“Okay. Welcome to our apartment Bella.” She said while bouncing around. I smiled and went to go find my room.

“Bella, your room is over here.” Alice showed me. “I hope you don’t mind the color blue.”

“No, I don’t mind it. Where’s our other roommate?” I asked.

“She is with her boyfriend, Emmett.”

“Oh, so you know each other?”

“Yes, we have been friends for as long as we can remember.”

It must be nice to know people here. I wished I did.

“So where are you from?” Alice asked me.

“Forks Washington.”

“Wow, that had to be one heck of a drive.”

“Yeah, it took me about two and a half days to get here.”

“Well I have to go. I will see you later.”

“Okay.” I went into my room and lie down on my bed for a few minutes before going and bring my things in.

I ended up falling asleep.I woke up after about an hour, not remembering where I was, I started to panic. It took me a few minutes to realize that I was at college. I got up and went a started to bring my belongings into my room.I grabbed one of the bigger boxes and started carrying it up to the apartment. I tripped on my own feet; I waited to hit the ground when I felt someone catch me.

“Are you alright?” A deep, but velvety voice asked.

“Yeah I’m fine.” I turned to see who it was that caught me. “I am…” I had to clear my thoughts. “I am just a klutz.”I couldn’t believe how beautiful he was.

He chuckled.“I’m Edward Cullen.” He introduced himself.

Once again dazzled by his presence, I had to gather my thoughts.

“Hi.” Was all I could manage to say at the time.

“You are?” He asked with his gorgeous crooked smile.

“Oh, umm, Bella. Bella Swan.”

“It’s nice to meet you Bella.” I smiled and felt my face turn crimson.

“I really need to unpack my things.”

“I’ll help you carry boxes up to your apartment.” He offered.

“No I can get it.”

“Do you honestly think I am going to leave you and hope that you don’t get hurt? I think I would rather stay here and help you that way I know you’re not going to get hurt.”

“Really I think I can manage.”

“I am not going to risk it.”

Edward’s POV-

I was walking to Alice and Rosalie’s apartment, when I saw a girl that was about to fall on her face. I ran over to her a caught her before she hit the ground.

“Are you alright?” I asked.

“Yeah I’m fine.” She turned to face me. “I am…” She paused. “I am just a klutz.” Finally finishing her sentence. She stood there staring at me.

I couldn’t help but laugh. I also noticed how beautiful she was. Her honey brown eyes were kind, her hair was soft and smelled delicious.

I didn’t know her, but I wanted to.“I’m Edward Cullen.” I introduced myself.

“Hi.” She said. I waited a few moments hoping she would introduce herself. But she didn’t.

“You are?” I asked with a smile.

“Oh, umm, Bella. Bella Swan.”

“It’s nice to meet you Bella.” Her face turned many different shades of red.

“I really need to unpack my things.”

“I’ll help you carry boxes up to your apartment.” I offered.

“No I can get it.”

“Do you honestly think I am going to leave you and hope that you don’t get hurt? I think I would rather stay here and help you that way I know you’re not going to get hurt.”

I don’t know why, but I felt the need to save her from any danger. Even if it was only a tiny scrape that she would get.

“Really I think I can manage.”

“I am not going to risk it.” I smiled and she rolled her eyes at me.

“I guess I could let you help me. It would make it a lot faster.” She agreed.We carried the boxes up to her apartment.

“This is your apartment?” I asked.“Yes. Why?”

“Your roommates are my friends, well one is my sister.”

“Which one?” She asked.

“Alice.”

“Oh, she seems very hyper.”

“That’s because of her bubbly personality.” I couldn’t help but laugh. After we were finished taking boxes up, I decided it was time for me to go.

“I have to now. It was nice meeting you.”

“It was nice to meet you as well.”

“Are you sure you can handle being by yourself without getting hurt?” I laughed, but she didn’t think it was all that funny.

“Yes.” She hissed at me. “I can manage not getting hurt.” Her expression lightened and a smile escaped from her mouth.

I walked over to her and took her lips in mine. I couldn’t fight my urge to kiss her any longer. I didn’t know why I feel these feelings towards someone I just met.

Bella’s POV-

When Edward kissed me I was shocked, but I didn’t want it to end. I actually enjoyed his kiss. I know this was kind of corny, but I think I felt sparks.

“What are you doing?” Alice asked. I didn’t even notice her walk in.

“Hi Alice.” I said blushing.

“Bella this is Rosalie, our other roommate.” She paused and looked over to Edward. “I see you have already met my brother.” She said smiling at me.

“Edward, how long have you known her?” Rosalie asked.

“About an hour.”

“And you’re already kissing her?”

“I have to go.” Edward ran out of the room. When Edward left I felt a piece of me go with him. I don’t know why, but I knew I had feelings for him. I wonder if it is even possible to have feelings for someone you just met.
