~Bella's pov~

My morning was easy. In one class I got a list of books, but luckily they where books that I had already read. I also met a boy with black oil slick hair named Eric.

When I was leaving for lunch out one of the class room doors I noticed a bulletin board. On it I saw a picture of a red truck that I immediately fell in love with. It was for sale by owner. I ripped off one of the phone number tabs. I would have to see what I could do about getting this truck.

I had enough money from summer jobs.For the most part my classes came with stares and whispers. The brave would come and make conversation about how I liked it here and what was my favorite class so far. In trigonometry I was forced to introduce my self in front of class.


I was also begged by a girl named Jessica to sit with her in lunch. I met Alice when I was about to go to lunch and she told me to go ahead and sit with them, that it was good that I was making friends. She then gave me a hug and proceeded to lunch.It was in the lunch room that I started to recognize faces.

The shy yet kind brunette was Angela. The blond who invited me to sit at the table was Jessica, their was another boy named Tyler Crowley who, along with Eric stared at me for the whole lunch.


My next class was Biology 2 with Mr. Banner. As I sat at a table for two people alone I notice a boy that I had not been introduced to in lunch who was staring at me right now smiling. His hair was blond and was in orderly spikes. He also had blue eyes. I suppose he was very attractive.

I could tell the way Jessica acted around him she liked him, so I would not try to steal him away. At the end of class he came over to my table.

“Hi, I’m Mike. You must be Isabella”

“It’s Bella.” I was starting to get annoyed. I did not like being called Isabella.

“Oh, okay. What’s your next class?”

“I have gym next.”

“What a coincidence, so do I! I can walk you their”

He seemed to be taking quite a liking to me. I was not used to boys taking such a liking in me, so I did not know how to turn one down. I was going to have to deal with all of them diplomatically.

In gym, not to my surprise, I played awfully. I am no a very athletic person.


After gym it was time to go home. The ride home was filled with questions about my day. I noticed that Rosalie was ignoring me and giving me glances of hate. Great I thought another person who hates me for a reason I don’t know.

When we got home Esme was waiting at the door and more time was taken spending time explaining my day.


“Well it sounds like you had a very long day. I bet you’re exhausted.”

“Yeah, their was something I wanted to ask you.”

“What is it?” She asked with an unknowing smile.

“I found this truck for sale on the school bulletin. I was wondering if it was O.K. if I bough it? I have enough money for it, and when Edward comes back we can’t all fit in the car.” She smiled and nodded her head.

“Of course dear, but just one thing,” She looked at me with a small smile.

“Yes?” I hoped the one thing wouldn’t be too weird.

“Let us buy it for you. Please? As a gift from us to you.” She was so persuasive. I did not want to hurt her feelings by rejecting a gift.



Yet again when I fell asleep I dreamt of Edward. This time he only stared at me with a grimance on his face and said or did nothing.

The next morning I woke up to the sound of a thunderous noise but I did not think much of it. When I was going out the door Esme came with me. In the drive way was the old red ford. I ran to Esme and gave her a hug.

“Thank you so much.”

“You’re welcome. We had it delivered this morning.”I then left for school. The day went the same as before.

The week passed by and their was still no Edward. I could sense Esme’s worry. That Saturday was sunny and every one stayed inside. Alice dragged me to here room and we played dress up –even though we seemed far to old- and had a special New York City style lunch.


For the night Alice slept with me downstairs like we where having a sleep over and painted each others nails and gossiped about all the boys in school.


When I was asleep I started to dream about Edward, through the middle of the night I became restless. I opened my eyes to look around the room. Alice was not in her sleeping spot. I then noticed some one standing in the room staring at me. It was Edward.

He was staring at me with a soft expression in his eyes. I also noticed that his jaw was clenched. I was breathless by his presence.

His hair was tousled and in a mess. Parts where hanging in his gold eyes. After a few minutes of wordlessly staring at each other he came over and knelt beside the couch.

“Its o.k. just go back to sleep.”

He pulled the covers over me and gently although it looked like he was holding his breath and trying not to touch me. I was speechless, his kindness was over whelming. After a couple seconds he left. I then fell asleep.

My dreams then lead me back to Edward. The next day was sure to be an odd one.
