Winter’s point of view.
“At that last glance I took, Edward motioned his index finger in commandment for me to join them. I hesitated for a while but I got over it and walked towards with a slight smile on my face.”
“Umm …. You called me Edward?” I asked when I finally reached his table.
“Yes, I did.” He said looking at me and then patted the chair next to him, inviting me to sit with them. I gracefully sat down on the chair and Edward began to talk.
“So Winter, I’ll like to introduce you to my family. This is Alice, Jasper, Rosalie, Emmett, Renesmee, Jacob and you’ve already met Bella.”
“Very nice to meet you all.” I said in order to be polite. I was afraid of saying something embarrassing.
At first when I glanced at his sibling when I was sitting with Annala, their faces looked as if they were a little annoyed at something especially Jasper, but he looked more like he was in pain. Since I was near and close to them, they were all relaxed and smiling and some how I felt as if I was surrounded by my own family.
My mother, father and my sister died in a car accident. My poor little sister, she was only just a few months old. The Cullens talked to me like they knew I since childhood. At that moment, tears weld up in my eyes and then began to flow. I quickly bent my head down to hide them away but it didn’t stay hidden for long.
The Cullens stop talking and focused their attention on me. When I realized what happen, I wiped my tears on my sleeves of my shirt and turn to them with a smile. Edward then turns to Bella for a second and then turns to me once again.
“Are you okay Winter?” He asked with concern.
“Yes,” I said but my voiced was still shaky.
“Are you sure?” He asked again. “You can tell us anything you want, we are here for you now.” Edward then said as if he knew something was bothering me.
“It’s nothing much, I was just remembering my family.”
“You miss home, don’t you?” he asked
“No, that’s not why I miss them. You see, they died 12 years ago along with my baby sister. We met in a car accident, I was five at that time, but some how I managed to survive the crash and I was given to my fathers’ sister. And seeing you all like this reminds me of my time with my family. For 12 years I had to put up with my horrible aunt. She’s a drunk and a drug addict. When she’s drunk she usually curses me a lot more than she does when she sees the housed tidy and dinner isn't on the table. She never does anything around the house but I really don’t mind having to do the chores. We moved down here because she found herself a boyfriend, who thinks she loves him but she only loves his money and he still hasn’t seen that yet.” I then looked to see their faces.
“Have you ever tried talking to her about her attitude towards you dear?” Bella said as came next to me and then put her hands on my shoulder but I rejoiced it. I couldn’t let them know everything that was going on in my life, ‘if I told them that I was abused, would they called the police?’ I asked myself. At the thought of it I hesitated and quickly got up and began to speak.
“I am very sorry. You all have been so nice to me but I have to go. I don’t want to be late for my next class. It was very nice to meet you all, good bye.”
I walked away from them and began to run when I was out of the cafeteria building. I ran until I reached building 4, where I had biology next. I stopped a few feet away form the building and dropped on my knees and began to cry again.
“Why did they have to be so kind to me? Not many people ever did, they usually treat me as if I were disgusted but why them?” I said as I cried in sobs. Sure Ryan and his friends were too but they Cullens were different, it felt as if I had to be with them, I belong with them. My cries were soft, so no one heard me. The bell rang to start class a short while after.
I got to my feet and wiped away my tears and hurried to class. I stopped at the door to wipe my face again. I then opened the door and to my bombshell, Edward and Bella were in the same class. My eyes weld up again but at that moment, Mr. Cope, our biology teacher, walked in. I waited for him to take his seat and then I went up to him and handed him my slip and showed me to a seat next to a blond boy.
Our desk was right beside Edward and Bellas’. I sat down looked away from Bella and Edward. I was confused. Why did they care about me so much, more than I do for myself. I turned to the blond boy and said “Hi, my name is Winter.” The boy watched me with a disgusted look. ‘Oh great, ugly troll treatment began once more!’ I said in my head with movement.
A few moments later, I began to feel dizzy and was getting light headed. I looked up and the room was turning dark. ‘It’s night already’ I had asked myself not knowing of what was worng with me. I rest my head on the cool desk and closed my eyes. I then began to feel a hasty sharp pain in my upper left arm. It felt as if someone drove an Iron rod through it. I winced in pain but made on sound. At the very second my mind went blank, my eyes saw nothing, and I fell to the floor and was not able to do anything because I could not move with the pain.
