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!

Edward slowly set me down on my feet. It felt wierd, like I was not meant to be standing straight. It took me a minute before I could look up into his eyes. A clump of his copper hair had fallen into his eyes. This time I did not resist, I lifted my hand and pushed it back. His face betrayed no emtion, and I had no idea what to do. I left my hand on his cheek, and it warmed at my touch.
Slowly, Edward lifted his hand it placed it on the back of mine. Still no emotion.
"We're in trouble." He whispered.
"It can only go downhill from here." I answered. This is where he smirked slightly. He lowered our hands, and took a step back.
"That's not what I meant."
"Mr. Cullen; Miss. Swan. I hope you have a nice explantion for this." The principal's voice echoed from behind Edward. I looked away from his green eyes and into Mr. Fraser's angry grey ones.
"Uh." I started.
"I'm sorry sir, Bella just needed some fresh air."
"I bet. Get to class. Now!" I let go of Edward's hand and headed into the school, Edward close behind. When we got close to the door I turned around to confront him.
"Let me go in first. Wait a couple minutes before you come in." I said. I turned around and walked into the classroom's awaiting students and aggravated teacher. When I lookd behind me as I sat down, I saw Edward watching me from the window in the back, just out of sight from anyone else. He had a look of complete and utter surprise on his face. Maybe disbelief would be a better definition.
And then end of class, I got out of there before Edward could start talking to me again.
"I hope you know that there's detention for both of you at lunch!" The teacher yelled after us.
I got to my locker. Rosalie came up behind me as I opened my locker and threw my books in. I turned to look at her.
"Where were you this morning?" I questioned her. She watched me.
"Sorry." She grumbled. I gave her a wry look. "Seriously Bella, there are other people that have problems, too. And they're not just about who they had sex with, and yet hate at the same time!" She talked loud. "I'm not going to be waiting for you everyday. I have a life, you know!?" She let out an exagerated breath and stomped off. I watched her, my mouth open in a perfect 'O'. Unexpected, what the heck could she be mad at me about. I lifted my hand to my head, I seriously had no idea what to do. It seemed as if nothing could go right. I grabbed my books. Might as well be early for class. No one was looking at me this time. This time everyone ignored me.
I watched her she left English class. She didn't even look at me. She was one stubborn girl. I doubted if she even knew why she hated me. I smirked at my own joke, but it vanished when the teacher announced what I would be doing during my luch break. Could the day get any better?
There was one thing that wouldn't vanish from my mind, not that I wanted it to. Bella was pregnant. The word felt strange. How could she be? She said she was okay, that there was nothing happening. She obviously loved to keep things from me. Maybe I had to get her drunk again so she would open up.
I didn't know how I felt about this new knowledge. It was all up to her though. She was the one with a child growing within her. I knew one thing for sure, I would be there. Even if she sent me to the fires of hell, I would crawl back out again, find her, and kiss her. What did this mean? Did I really love her?
Well, if she chose to keep the baby, I was going to have to. As I walked down the hallway through the throbs of students, I thought about how reactions make up everything. How did I react. I was angry; I scared her. I didn't mean to. I needed to find her to apologize. I doubted she would talk to me again. This was going to be hard. What would her parents' reactions be.
Oh, God. What would mind say!?
Jasper's POV (That's right! And it's probably a one time thing)
I walked steadily down the stretch of hallway. It was deserted everyone else was already in the cafeteria eating their lunches. Edward had detention with Bella for some unknown reason, and I was on a mission.
She wasn't there!
The most beautiful woman in the world was not seated with her friends at her usual table.
I turned a corner and saw her coming down the hallway. Tyler, walking out the doors down the hall. She had a pleased look on her face. She looked up from the floor and noticed me. Her perfectly arched eyebrows raised as I approached.
"Jasper, what--" She started to say. I didn't stop to talk. I didn't stop to talk. I walked right up to her, leaned down, and kissed her surprised lips.
