I parked my car in the drive way and got out. I sighed. Jacob had forgotten to take the bins out. Again. I pushed them round to the front ready for collection and stepped in to the house. No one was home, so I headed upstairs to do some algebra homework. My dream come true. No matter how hard I tried though, the homework couldn’t keep my mind from wondering. Why didn’t the rest of the Cullen’s like me? Was there something I did? Or said? No one can just take an immediate disliking to you, can they? I didn’t even know them all that well. I heard the front door open, so I headed downstairs. It was Angharad.
“Hi.” I said hugging her. She grinned, her sea green eyes sparkling.
“Hiya Amber! How have you been? I haven’t seen you in – what, a week?” She said in mock horror. I laughed and led her to the kitchen. She perched herself on the edge of the table and flicked her flaming red hair out of her eyes.
“So, what have you been up to? Enjoyed the first day of school?” I giggled at her shocked expression.
“Enjoy school? How the heck does anyone enjoy school? Especially the first day back. Any way, to answer your question, I would rather drink pigs’ blood then go through that again.” She said. “How was yours?”
“It was ok. We have some new kids at school and I sat with them at lunch. Alice and Edward were really nice but the other three were slightly odd. They kept glaring at me for no reason. It was kind of weird.” I looked up to see Angharad frozen on the edge of the table staring intently at me. “What?” I asked.
“Alice and Edward? What were the others name?” She asked a shocked expression flittering across her face. I raised my eyebrows. Why did she want to know? I told her anyway.
“Rosalie, Jasper and Emmett.” I said suspiciously. “Why?”
“It’s nothing.” She said quickly.
"Are you sure?" I asked suspiciously.
"Yeah, definitely." She sounded convincing enough. I nodded, still eyeing her carefully. "What do you want to do?" She asked brightly. That evening we went to see the film I mentioned to her and we both really enjoyed it. We came back through the doors laughing loudly. Jacob was already home.
"Hey you guys, had fun?" We both nodded in union.
"Can I talk to you for a minute?" She asked Jacob. She looked at me. "Just a minute, Amber." I nodded and they both walked in to the kitchen. I tried to listen in, but they were talking in to low a voice for me to understand. They came out about five minutes later, with Jacob looking no where near as happy as when he walked in.
"What's wrong?" I asked. They didn't answer. I instead Angharad came and hugged me.
"I've got to go. See you tomorrow." She said, quickly changing the subject.
"See ya." I answered.
I decided to get my English homework done that night so I trudged upstairs unwillingly, getting the homework out of my bag as I walked. But before I could get to the last step, Jacob called me down.
“Amber, can I talk to you for a minute?” I nodded and followed him to the kitchen. I almost jumped out of my skin when I saw most of the people in our neighbourhood sitting round the table and a few family friends that lived down the road from here, including Seth and Leah. Jacob had a grim look about his face again.
“What’s up Jake?” I asked after getting the shock of the ten people sitting round my dining table. I looked around the table again, seeing that the others hardly had happy expressions on their faces. Some of them looked angry, some looked nervous and a few had a mixture of the two. What the heck was going on? I sat down cautiously on one of the spare chairs. Jake looked at the others and they nodded encouragingly.
“Earlier, Angharad told me about some friends you made today.” He started. So that was what all that was about. It wasn’t such a big deal that I made friends outside of my family that the whole neighbourhood has to come and celebrate, I thought dryly to myself.
“What about them?” I asked suspiciously.
“Well...” He looked for the right words to say, but Embry cut him off.
“We want you to stay away from the Cullen’s. They’re dangerous and unsafe for you to so much as talk to.” I snorted, trying to imagine tiny Alice being dangerous. Oh no, she might take us all on a shopping trip!
“Dangerous?” I said raising my eyebrow. “If Alice is dangerous then so is the tooth fairy.” Seth was trying to hold in laughter at the back, probably trying to imagine the tooth fairy being dangerous. Boys.
“We’re serious.” Leah stated moodily, as usual. “Those jackasses are trouble.” How dare she? They had just moved here. How can she judge someone she doesn’t even know? I glared at them all.
“I can make my own friends, thank you very much.” I snapped at her.
“You are never going to talk to them again, and that’s final.” Jacob snapped at me, his voice ringing with authority.
“Oh, we’ll see about that.” I said coldly, then I turned on my heel and dramatically left the kitchen. All I could here was silence and then an outburst of angry chatter. Personally I was quite pleased with my dramatic exit. No way were they going to tell me who to make friends with. Suddenly, I couldn’t wait until I went shopping with Alice on Saturday.
