Reliving the Dream
When a Twilight-obsessed girl moves to Forks to live with her father, she isn't depressed like most people would be. She isn't bothered by the bleak, rainy landscape of Forks, but instead enthralled. When she meets a mysterious boy with mesmerizing eyes, she is overjoyed. Her life-long (well, maybe not LIFE long, but certainly long enough) dream of meeting her true love is coming true. And it's not just any true love - it's THE true love. But when she is nearly crushed to death by a van in the school parking lot, but saved by the strange boy, she begins to get suspicious. What if she already knows what will happen? What if she knows that she's falling in love with Edward Cullen, and vise versa? What if she's reliving Twilight?

“Are you sure you want to do this?” My mom asked, handing me my carry-on bag.
“Of course,” I said genuinely, “I want to move in with dad.” There was another motivation behind my relocation, but I wasn’t going to tell her.
“Alright, then,” she said with a sigh. She pulled me in a bone crushing hug for the last of a thousand times, then stood and watched as I stepped onto the plane. As it slowly pulled off down the runway, I waved frantically out my window, and she waved frantically back.
When I couldn’t see her anymore, I turned to face forward. I was off to start a new life, to begin a new journey. And most importantly, I was living my dream.
It takes fourteen hours to fly to Washington from New York city. After that, I had a one hour fly to Port Angeles from Seattle, and then another half an hour in a car to the teeny tiny town of Forks.
Unlike my brother – who had begged mom not to make him go – who despised the small, rainy town, I was excited for the first time in years. Of course, I too had hated Forks at one point, until I’d read the life-altering book.
To this day, I’d read that book fourteen times and memorized nearly all the dialogue and events. I knew the characters inside and out; knew their hopes, their dreams. And I was in love with the main character, much like other girls were madly obsessed with celebrities like Zac Effron and Pete Wentz. But they all paled in comparison to this imaginary God.
It may have been an understatement to say I was obsessed. Obsessed didn’t quite cover it – didn’t nearly sum up how exactly I felt about this book. I mean, there has to be a better word to describe a teenage girl who’s read a book fourteen times without getting bored.
I opened my bag and pulled out a thick volume, placing it in my lap. There before me sat four hundred and ninety-eight pages of absolute genius. Even the cover was amazing, when you really knew what it meant.“But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil; thou shalt not eat of it, for in the day that thou eatest thereof, thou shalt surely die.”
The apple obviously represented desire and scandal. All the desire between two love-struck teens. All the scandal of a vampire dating a mortal. And of course, all the awesomeness in between.
I just stared at the book before me with a little smile on my face. The person beside me glanced at me several times as if I were crazy. Maybe I was.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you for traveling on American Airlines this evening. We will be reaching your destination of Seattle, Washington in approximately fourteen hours. Please sit back, relax, and enjoy your flight.”Inside, I was screaming. This was the best day of my life. I was not only dreaming, but living my dream. I was going to Forks. And what could I possibly do there? I was going to go vampire hunting.
