What We Become
All human. Edward, the ghost of the school, has seen her from afar, but has never approached her. He and Bella have come to an unspoken agreement:don't talk to me and I won't talk to you.Hate is always the feelings that arise. With one night together, Bella becomes pregnant. What will happen? Will they find away to love one another? There's always a sneak peek at my next chapter on my site.
So here it is. A brand new story. I just need a little input from you, my fabulous readers and reviewers. While you read this story, think of what I should do to make it better. I mean I have a vague outline, but it is still changeable. I’ve changed the Bella character a bit, but she hasn’t changed in essence. Does that sound cheesy? It probably does.
To all my regulars… I know there are some of you. I want you to know that this story will not disappoint. If it does, please tell me. I’m not afraid of a bit of flames. As long as they’re matches and not torches.
To new comers…. I hope you enjoy my writing techniques. If you like this story, do not be afraid to go and read my other ones. I just finished Edward and Isabella. And Practice makes perfect, so this story might be better…. READ ON MAN!

"Here, wear my coat." Edward said, coming up behind me. I had my arms wrapped around myself, it was freezing this morning. He started to pull it over my shoulders. I shrugged away from him.
"I don't want it." I said stubbornly. Edward sighed.
"Just put it on, Bella. You're gonna freeze. Just think of it as someone else's if you want." He put it back over my shoulders, and I didn't reject this time. I did want to stay warm. I tried to ignore the scent of him that carried from his coat; it triggered memories of other parts of him. I closed my eyes, and when I opened them he was still standing there. Just looking at me. I waited for him to say something.
"Bella.." He took a step towards me. "I didn't mean for it to happen like that.. exactly." He whispered.
I looked over his shoulder and saw Rosalie coming out of her tent with her bag. Emmett was already walking around its perimeter, taking out the pegs as he walked.
"Edward. You seduced me. Enough said. You saw that I was drunk beyond belief, and you were full of hormones. If it were any other girl, you would've done the same thing, I'm sure."
"You better start doubting yourself then, because you've got it completely wrong." Edward glared. My mouth dropped open. "If I don't recall, you kissed me." He smiled. "I'd like you to do it again." I made a face of revulsion.
"Uh. You came on to me, mister. Get your stories straight."
"Does it matter?" Edward took another step towards until we were inches apart. I had to look up into his face and his breath tickled my cheeks. I involuntarily took a deep breath and closed my eyes. "I personally think all that matters is we did what we did, and the consequences can be easy.. or hard." His voice became deeper at the last word. I didn't open my eyes. "It's up to you, love. I'm just the ghost remember?" I opened my eyes to retort, but he was faster and pressed his lips against mine. My entire head became cloudy, and I couldn't think. All I knew was that I was kissing him back, and he still tasted amazingly good.
"Bella!" Rosalie yelled from somewhere close. I pulled away from Edward and pushed his chest. Hard.
"You just did it again!" I growled. "Stop it!" Edward touched his shoulder for a moment and then looked at me.
"Bella, we're leaving." Rosalie sounded... mad? I looked at her. She had her arms crossed and a determined look on her face. I looked at Edward again.
"Don't find me at school." And then I turned around and left him and his look of surprise and bewilderment.
Bella squirmed out of my grasped and rolled away. I watched her with have closed eyes, but they opened wide when I saw her. I smiled, raising my eyebrows. Her face contorted for a second, and then she realized what I was looking at. She pulled her dress from the night before and tried to wrap it around herself. It wasn't working. Her entire face was red.
I threw her one of my blankets and turned around while she got dressed. I turned around and she was standing there above me. I opened my mouth.
"No." She whispered. "I can't believe. I. We. Oh my God." She looked sad, and then I saw anger. She huffed and then turned around and left the tent, leaving the zipper door wide open. Sunlight came wafting in. I stood there for a moment, but then I felt the cold temperature. She didn't have a coat.
"What did you do, Bella." Rosalie whispered to me from the backseat of Emmett's jeep.
"Nothing you didn't do as well." I said back without looking at her.
"Actually Bella. I don't think so." She took a breath. "Bella. I'm your best friend, so answer me this truthfully. Did you have sex with Edward?"
Emmett slammed his foot on the brake and I had to grab a hold of the seat in front of me to stop me from flying. "Oops. Too loud." Rosalie said.
"Damn right. You had sex with my brother?!" Emmett had turned around in his seat and was staring at me with a look of .. I don't know what it was. I swallowed. "Bella!" He almost roared.
"Why are you so angry? It's none of your business!" I yelled back at him. He glared and then turned around in his seat. He pulled his cell phone out of his pocket.
"None of my business." He murmured angrily. "We'll see..." I gasped when he brought the phone to his ear. I lunged for it, but missed.
"Emmett, what are you doing!?"
"Calling my brother." He answered. My eyes widened.
"I'll tell you everything, just don't call him." My voice was flat. He hung up, and I became suddenly aware that he could have been lying. He looked at me straight in the eyes, and I had to look away.
"Did you sleep with my brother?" He looked like he would grit his teeth if he could. I closed my eyes.
"Oh My God!" Rosalie said. "Bella what were you thinking?!"
"I was kind of drunk." I whispered without opening my eyes.
"So. You could have said ‘no.' "
"I was going to..."
"Before he raped you then?" Rosalie said.
"Hey that's my brother." Emmett said.
"Sorry. Bella. Seriously something is wrong. You hate Edward Cullen. When did that change?"
I opened my eyes and looked at her.
"I still hate him." I said. Emmett let out a low hiss and then turned back to the steering wheel, and starting the jeep back up again.
"Obviously this is not going to end well." He grumbled.
