He was sitting behind me on the first day of school, just sitting their like a stone statue staring at my back. I felt his eyes burning into me but tried not to grow irritated, I sighed heavily and kept my eyes on the whiteboard in front of me. Did he know how stalker like he was? Or did he get a kick out of making me so uncomfortable? After forty five minutes of this, the bell finally rang, I got up in a rush and my books fell to my feet.
“Let me get those for you.” He whispered.
“I got them.” I spat back. I didn’t even know why I hated him so much; it must be something about his fancy cars and designer clothes. He lives in Forks for Christ’s sakes! There’s no one to impress here, except for me. Everyone knew how much he liked me and for the first 2 years I tried to smile and shrug it off. Bad idea. He clung to me like a child without a mother for those 2 years, until I had to harshly put him down. I didn’t want to be mean then but it was my only resort, so now we were stuck in this rut. Him watching me from afar and me cursing the day he laid eyes on me.
My sister Rosalie always yelled at me for not taking interest to him, off course she wouldn’t even think of pursuing him, she was in love with Emmett. Rosalie and Emmett were the perfect couple in every sense of the word. He was a football player, she was a cheerleader. The only problem was Emmett was Edward’s brother and I was forced to be in his company at parties, Christmas, get together’s and birthdays. That wasn’t the only thing tying me down; Alice my other sister was also dating his other brother Jasper…what luck!
When I finally got far enough from Edward I went to meet my boyfriend Jacob. Now Jacob was something else entirely, he was warm, charming and not superficial like Edward. He lived down in La Push but began going to my high school last year. He was just what I needed and loved, my best friend and the greatest boyfriend. Our height difference didn’t seem to make a dent in our relationship either, fortunately, my head came up to his perfectly chiseled chest as I hugged him tight. I looked up at his tan skin and dark brown eyes and smiled; I pushed his black hair out of his face and saw Edward wince at the corner of my eye.
“Is he bothering you again?” Jacob asked angrily.
“Same old, same old.” I replied.
“I’m about done with all his admiring and goo goo eyes!” He shot an angry glare at where Edward had been standing before, but was disappointed by not seeing him there. I grabbed his arm and pulled him back to me. The last thing I needed was Jacob’s temperament flaring into a destructive rage. That was probably the only bad thing about him, his tragic flaw; if only I could erase his temper he would be perfect. Just perfect. The warning bell rang and I whished him a quick goodbye, when I reached my next class I slid between Rosalie and Alice. The teacher watched me with suspicious eyes, almost saying ‘how could these three be sisters? They’re nothing alike!’
That’s how it usually went with us, because we were all so different. Rosalie was blonde with blue eyes and a slamming body and Alice was black haired and pixie like, who was small and short with hazel eyes. Me, I was normal, I had dark brown hair and was averaged height, I had boring brown eyes (nothing like Jacobs big chocolate eyes). It was almost like we were from 3 different mothers, which wasn’t possibly true; my mom was the only person my dad had ever been with and probably ever will. He just couldn’t get over her death, even when triplets were becoming impossible to take care of. Just then Rosalie passed me a note under the table.Hey, So don’t get mad or anything, but I think you should dump that dog Jacob and go out with Edward!
I fought the urge to strangle her and wrote back-Hey, How ‘bout NO!
She grumbled something and then tossed the paper in the trash, Alice turned to Rosalie beaming with excitement and then pouted her lips when Rosalie shook her head and rolled her eyes.
“I think Bella needs a little cheering up!” She whispered.
“She just needs to get laid!” Rosalie laughed.
“Not by Edward!” I hissed. The girls giggled and hesitantly started to pay attention to the now angry teacher. How much longer does this have to go on? I thought to my self. Not very long thankfully, next year Jacob and I were moving away to college to get our degrees and live happily ever after… absolutely no Edward! I smiled in agreement with my thoughts and then turned to the white board, Alice and Rosalie eyed me quizzically and then shrugged their shoulders. When we finally got out of class Alice grabbed me by the arm to talk to me.
“I know you really love Jake, but Bella, he’s all wrong for you. I see him and his moodiness and I know what he’s capable of, Edward would never do that! You don’t even know how nice of a guy he is, aside from all the money and fancy stuff, he’s really genuine and… and humble.” She looked in my eyes for a minute and everything was quiet. The buzz of the hall faded and my mind sent me back to a couple weeks ago at Jake’s house…
“Bells I don’t know why you keep doing this! I saw you look at him today! Why don’t you just admit you like him?!!?” His hand raised and struck me on my cheek. I was fighting tears as I cupped my face, but I didn’t cry, that’s what always made him angrier.
“It was just a look Jacob! Why are you being so ridiculous!? Im leaving!” I rushed for the door but he got to me before me. He tangled his fingers in my hair and swung me around to the couch.
“Oh no you’re not!” He screamed and then starting sobbing, sinking to his knees and laying his head on my lap.
“Why do you want to leave me Bella? What did I do to you? Don’t I make you happy?” I knew then it was okay to cry and I let the tears roll of my cheek silently. I patted his hair and after an hour of this left peacefully….
Alice finally came back to view along with the present, and I snapped back to normal and shook my head.
“I don’t need your pity Alice.” I growled, breaking from her grasp and nearly sprinting down the hallway. When I got to where Jacob always waited, a body came flying from the boy’s restroom, a sweet perfume blew through the air and I searched for the unknown figure. When I saw who it was I quickly took it back, Edward was getting up and Jacob was charging out of the restroom furiously. He was on his feet before Jacob got to him and swung a mean punch out to hit him. Jake ducked and then ran into Edward with all his force. I closed my eyes and prayed to God that this wasn’t happening. Jake was surely getting expelled for this, he was known to start trouble and I knew he wouldn’t last.
Rosalie grabbed my shoulder from behind me and whispered-
“Is this what you want?”
A tear rolled down my cheek as the two boys fought fiercely, I could see two teachers coming and an officer running to stop them. I turned my back and walked slowly to my class room not sure of what I’d do next. Whistles blew, boo-ing and yell’s rang through the hallway until I closed the class door behind me and slumped in my chair.
“Your brother’s fighting my boyfriend out there…” I sighed to Emmett and Jasper-- their eyes widened in shock and disbelief, then lowered and rolled.
“Edward can take care of himself.” Emmett groaned. “But can you?”
