Edward and I were standing on the beach. He had his back to me.

“Edward? What’s wrong?” I asked. My voice sounded faint and far away. He turned and the face that I saw wasn’t Edward. It looked like him but the expression was different. Colder. I ran to him and hugged him. He pushed me away.

“Who are you?” Those words brought the world crashing down around me. A swirl of blackness as the sand came up to meet me.

I sat up in bed gasping for air. I was in my room, in Charlie’s house. My window was open and a cool breeze licked my face. Edward was away hunting. I tried to relax but I could get rid of the fear the dream had inspired. It was going to be a long night.

*********

I arrived at school. Edward’s car was there already but he was nowhere nearby. Well, I’d see him in biology. I was running late so I ran in. Edward was already seated at the table.

“Hey Edward” I said eagerly.

“Oh, hi Bella” he said it stiffly.

“What’s wrong?”

“Nothing, I’m just surprised by your reaction to me today. You haven’t said two words to me over the last month”

“What? I have! I mean, we went out last Wednesday”

“No we didn’t. You only ever talk to me if you have to. I mean, you’ve been ignoring me ever since you first arrived. I can’t actually believe you’re talking to me now”

“Edward, is this a joke or something. Because if it is, it’s not funny” he looked at me as if I was insane. Mr. Banner came into the room. I tried to question Edward but he ignored me. This was seriously weird.

**********

In trig, I sat next to Jess.

“Jess, can I ask your opinion on something?”

“Sure Bella. What is it?”

“Edward’s behaving really oddly today” she looked at me for more information.

“He’s forgotten that we’re going out. He says that I don’t talk to him”

“Bella, you hate Edward Cullen. You have ever since you moved here. You’re always complaining about having to sit next to him in biology. You always sit as far away as possible”

“What? No I don’t!”

“You do Bella. Are you feeling alright?” Something weird was going on. I decided to play along to whatever Jess and Edward were up to.

“Oh, yeah, sorry. I didn’t get much sleep last night. Must have gone a bit loopy”

She nodded. The bell rang. We headed to the canteen and I sat in what Jess called ‘our usual seat’ Edward and his family came in. I decided that after lunch, I was going to get answers! I watched him through the entire lunch break. He never looked my way, never smiled, and never changed. When it ended, I followed him down the hallway.

“Edward, I need to talk to you!” I told him when he saw me.

“What about?” he said, coldly.

“What is going on?”

“Nothing, Bella. Do you mind, I have a class to go to,” he tried to walk around me but I stood in his way. A girl came up. She had black hair and golden eyes.

“Oh hey Bella” she said to me. I didn’t bother acknowledging the greeting. I was glaring at Edward. She turned to Edward and wrapped her arms around him. He responded. Their lips met. I gasped.
