1. Forks is Boring
Rating 5/5 Word Count 927 Review this Chapter
I threw down Wuthering Heights for the last time and let out a large sigh. Edward’s eyebrows rose as his head tilted in my direction.
“I think I need new reading material. Cathy and Heathcliff have finally done it this time.”
Edward chuckled and shook his head in disbelief. “I told you that book was a nuisance.” I frowned at him and got up from the table, grabbing the Mercedes’s keys.
“If Alice doesn’t have any stuff for me to do we might as well go to the book store. Some one at school mentioned this new book everyone is going crazy about.” I mentioned to Edward.
“Sure why not? As far as I know, Alice doesn’t need any help… at the moment.” he said as he fluidly rose from the table. I sighed inwardly. I figured I wouldn’t get that much time off from wedding preparations.
We walked out to the Guardian and was momentarily distracted; I couldn’t help giving off a “humph” as I stared at it. Edward chuckled as he hopped into the passenger side. I’m guessing he wasn’t going to try driving when I was already annoyed with the car. As far as I was concerned that was a smart choice on his part.
The car was fairly fast and we were outside of Forks limits within a matter of minutes. The closest book store was in Port Angeles. I had eventually found one that wasn’t covered in dream catchers and consisted of books on spiritual healing.
“So, what is this new book you mentioned?” Edward asked, curiosity hanging off his every word, “I thought you stuck to the classics?” It was like Edward to be confused when I tried knew things, we were both fairly constant people.
“Well, I figured I might as well try reading what the other kids are reading these days. As far as the book, all I know is it’s by a something Meyer. Angela mentioned it the other day when we went for coffee. I guess she noticed I was low on reading material too.” I explained. Edward nodded and faced the road again. From what I heard from Angela it was good, though she had never read it. Most likely no one in Forks had since it was a new addition to the bookstore about an hour away, even though it had been out for a while. Her cousin had mentioned it to her; apparently the book was set in Forks. I thought that was odd seeing as it was strange anyone would want to set their book in Forks. Other than Edward, Forks was extremely boring. That was about the extent Angela knew of the book. I knew she wasn’t much of reader, she had mentioned it for my sake. I hoped it was good enough to draw my attention when Edward was away.
I looked away from the road and Edward was staring at me. I blushed and he brushed his hand along my cheek.
“Sorry, I was just thinking to my self,” I muttered.
“I might as well get a couple new books too. It’s interesting to see how writing has changed in the last century or so.” He said as I pulled onto the street. We got out of car and I pushed open the store door, bells chiming alerting the sales person someone had entered. I was browsing through some of the cheap romances at the front of the store when a girl about my age came up to us holding a black and red book in her hand. She had only turned the corner of the shelf when she abruptly stopped, her mouth gaping as she caught sight of Edward. Anger suddenly flared up in me. I had always known Edward had this effect on people especially with my firsthand experience but it had never been to this extent. I looked to Edward and his brow was furrowed, an irritated expression plastered on his face. He pulled me into the nearest aisle, out of the girl’s sight.
“Bella how much do you know about this new book?” he said his expression now angry.
“N-not much. I said, taken aback and slightly alarmed, “Edward what’s wrong?”
“What was the last name of the author?” he demanded.
“Meyer, I think.” I answered back. He pulled me over to the fiction section a little too fast to be human and quickly found M. I looked around, luckily the girl was nowhere to be seen.
“Was it Stephenie Meyer?” He asked holding up a book that looked identical to the one in the sales person’s hands.
“Yeah, that’s the one.” I said as Angela and mine’s conversation came back to me. I was now thoroughly confused. Edward opened the book and quickly scanned through it as I stood in the silence, stunned. After about a minute or so Edward looked up at me with a peculiar expression. I couldn’t tell if it was worry or confusion.
“Read this” was all he said to me as he handed me the book. He immediately looked around the fairly deserted store and pulled me into a secluded reading nook. I finally looked at the book. The title was Twilight and there was someone holding an apple on the cover. I quickly read the four sentences on the back and my breath hitched. It only took a couple pages in the middle of the book to know that this story was a love story. MY love story to be specific.
