Imperfectly Perfect

I was moving to a little town that frequently rains. The town where my mother and I left when I was just months old. The town where I spent every summer until I turned fourteen. Yes, I moving - permanently - to Forks, Washington.

I closed my eyes and tried to concentrate on the positive side. I furrowed my brows. The only bright side about this whole thing was that Renee will be happy since she could travel with Phil and not have to stay at home with me. I sighed. It's not that I'm mad at Renee, since it was my decision. I'm full blown pissed. She failed to raise me, she controlled everything I did. It’s just that, I just plainly don’t like Forks.

Forks was, more or less, an illusion of hell for me. It’s practically, covered in green and brown. Plus, it constantly rains. But I'm away from my mother. And that's what counts.

Charlie will also be happy with my staying. Even though his idea of a good time is watching the game and drinking beer with the guys. Although he was just as bad as Renee. He forced me to like Jake, even though I completely despised him. But I put on a pretty face and smiled, hoping to appease him. I suppose some good will come out of it. I shuddered. I'm not used to being this optimistic. It drains my energy.

I'm a goody- freaking-too-shoes. My mother would check my clothing every freaking day, to make sure that I wore 'appropriate' clothing. Nothing skirt can be higher then my ankles, no skin showing ever! Erg!

I'm so glad I'm staying with Charlie. Even thought he'll probably force me to kiss Jake. Gag. I'm 17, and I look like it. I've always known I was pretty, and I had a rockin body. But my mother said it was improper to enhance my assets. She can go to hell!!! I was used to boys drooling over me, it was normal. But whenever they asked me out I had to politely put them down. I wish I could just tell them to screw off. But no! I had to be a lady! My mother was always telling me how much I needed to get a well bread, good natured, boyfriend. Once again, she needs to go to hell.

“Bella?” My fathers voice broke me out of my reverie. He put my suit case in the trunk of the police cruiser. Oh, did I mention my father is the chief of Police in Forks, Washington? He really is. Once Jake looked at me the wrong way and he almost pinned him down. Not that I complained. He takes the whole ' over protective dad' to it's limit.

“Yes, dad?” I answered. I got in the car, he looked worried. Oh. He probably wanted me to ride I the back seat. I scoffed.
“Listen, I know your not used to being around me. But please try to get along with other people. You represent the Swan family, that's a heavy weight to pull.” Great. Another 'Swan' speech. “Bella, you know how much you mean to this family. I'm just asking that you talk with people in your own social status. I don't want you hanging out with those Cullens.” He said firmly.
“Dad, what so bad about them? There people like us!” I told him. He seemed furious at what was coming out of my mouth. “Bella! Those people can hardly be considered humans. They drink and smoke, and take drugs! Do you want to end up like then?!” He hollered. If only he knew.

“No, dad.” I mumbled, looking at my lap. I hated getting him upset. “Promise me, Bella.” He said. I sighed and looked up. “ I promise I won't end up like the Cullens.” I promised. My voice flat. That was one promise I was not sure I could keep.

The rest of the drive was in total silence.

stupid alarm clock!

First day of school...Joy!

I got up from my bed and threw my alarm clock out the window. That's for waking me up! I thought. I sluggishly walked over to the bathroom and got ready for school. As I made my way down the stairs, I tripped and fell down all 30 of them. Curse, my klutz like ways! I limped my way to the kitchen. There was a note taped on the refrigerator.

Hey Bells!

Hope you had a good nights sleep!

I'm going to be at work 'till about 7,

so, feel free to make dinner!

Hope you have a great day!

: )

love,

DAD

I had to laugh, the smiley face was cute. On the kitchen counter was a key.
I decided to leave it there.

As I started walking to school, a really happy neighbor walked over to me. “Hi, I'm Mike.” He said with a smile, and stuck his hand out. I smiled back and shook his hand. “ I hear your the famous Isabella Swan.” He said, and we continued walking. I nodded. “ My dad said your the heir too.” He beamed.
“Sure...” I trailed off. We just stood there for an awkward moment. My long skirt hovering over the ground. I hated my wardrobe. I looked like I can out of Grease. Mike wasn't any better. He was wearing a dress shirt and pants.
“Do you...maybe....want to go out?” He asked quietly. I wanted to just scream 'Awkward Turtle' and run. But, I was a lady. “ I'll think about it.” I told him.
“Okay.” He said with a giant grin.

As I entered the school it blew me away. Everybody was so...I will sound so old but... they all look so square!! All the boys were wearing suites, and had their hair slicked back. I had to chuckle. The girls were all wearing poodle skirts and white shirts. What is this, the 50's ?!?
“Hey, I'm Jessica.” A girl said. I turned to look at her. She was sporting a blue skirt and a really high ponytail. Might as well put in on the top of your head! I thought. “Hi, I'm Bella.” I said politely. “You can hang out with us if you want.” She said. I smiled and nodded. Only two years... I prayed in my head.
She lead me to a table full of dorky looking kids. “This is Lauren.” She pointed to a girl with her hair pulled down, and the first 3 buttons of her blouse undone. I snorted. Whore. I thought.

Next she pointed to a girl with two ponytails. She had glasses and a green dress. I could get along with her. She seemed really nice. I could see Mike squirming in his seat. I am soooo out here. I thought. “Need to go to the bathroom.” I quickly said and hurried toward the nearest room.

Due to some stroke of luck, I actually ended up in the girls bathroom. There sitting on the counter was a girl, she was different from everyone else. She wore a black skirt with leggings underneath. She also had black and pink tank top. I like her! I thought. Her eyes caught mine. “Your Bella Swan!” she said with a smile. She hopped off the counter and walked over to me. She is so small! Her spiky hair was at about my collar bone. “Alice Cullen.” she said with a smile. That would explain it. “can you help?” I asked. Motioning to my really bad attire.

“I think I might be able to do something.” She said with a smirk. She walked over to a stall and came out shortly with an outfit. “Here.” She said. She untucked my dress shirt, and gave me a pair of jeans.“I can't wear this. My dad will kill me.” I said, trying to fix it back . But she just crossed her arms and shook her head. “Nope.” She simply said. I groaned.

Since we were the only ones in there, I just took off my skirt, I heard her gasp. I turned. “What?” I asked. “ Are you wearing white underwear?” She asked incredulously. I nodded. “Wow. I bet you don't even have a thong.” She mumbled. “ What's a thong?” I asked. I really was confused. She laughed. “It's like underwear, except the ass part is a string.” She said, sounding like she was talking to a child. “That sounds uncomfortable.” I told her. She giggled. “It is. But it's hot.” She replied. And I went back to putting my pants on..

“Hey, Alice?” I asked. I finished changing awhile ago, we were just chilling. “Why does my family hate yours?” I asked. She tilted her head, as if she were thinking. “ Well, our families just have differences. That's all.” She said.
“Alice, I think we're going to be best friends.” I said with a smile. “I think so too.” She agreed.

“Hey, Bells. Do you wanna meet my family?” She asked. Well, I always wanted to meet the Cullens. “Sure.” I said

Alice lead me to a table of beautiful people, all of them dressed like her. “This is Emmett.” She said. Gesturing to a huge, and I mean really huge, guy. He was linked arms with a stunning blonde. I gave Alice a confused glance. “That's Rose. She's harmless.” Alice murmured reassuringly. Rose just glared at me. It was sort of intimidating. “This is Jazzy.” She said. Pointing to a slim and good looking boy. “ Pleasure to meet you.” He said politely. “I'd introduce myself but you probably already know my name.” I said with a chuckle. “Oh, but I don't.” He said with a smug look. I rolled my eyes.

“Bella Swan.” I told him. Everybody froze. Well, except for Alice. “Alice!” Rose screamed. “ What?” She asked innocently. Rose looked like she was going to say something, but was interrupted by someone. A tall bronze haired boy walked over to me. He was STUNNING! He had a strong jaw line, and pale skin. His hair was the most beautiful shade of bronze. His black skinny jeans and T-shirt extenuated his physique. He had muscles, but not as many as Emmett. He was perfect, and made me really turned on!

“Edward Cullen.” He said with a smirk. My heart nearly stopped. His breath washed over me in a fountain of fragrance. He smelled sweet and almost flowery. I swear I almost started drooling. His green eyes bore into my brown ones, it was like he could see into my soul. Alice pulled my down into my seat. “Wow, Bella. What was that?” She whispered. “I don't know.” I told her.

“Hey, Bella. You wanna go to my house after school? We could go shopping.” She said, with so much excitement I thought she might explode. I don't really like shopping, but let's face it...I need it. “Sure.” I told here. She squealed. I chuckled and shook my head.

Once I got home I started on dinner. Alice was coming to pick me up at 5:00.
At about 4:45 I heard the front door open. I was confused. Dad wasn't supposed to be home until 7. “Dad?” I asked. I saw him walk into the kitchen, still carrying his gun. “Honey, someone told me that you were hanging out with the Cullens today.” she said firmly. “Dad, trust me. I would never do that.” I lied. “Okay, hun.” He said. “Why are you home early?” I asked. He walked over to the coat rack and hung up his gun belt. “Slow day at the station.” He simply said.

“Dad, I'm going shopping with Jessica Stanley.” I said. He looked at me and smiled. “ That's great, honey. Have fun.” He said as I headed out the door. Alice's car was parked in the drive way. She smiled as I got in the passenger side. “Off we go!” She sang.

After 3 hours of shopping we went to Alice's house for dinner. Her house was HUGE!!!! It was white, and I could fit like three houses the size of mine in it. We went up stairs to put her clothes away. As I was walking to her room, I spotted another one that didn't fit with the others. I stopped in the door way to take the view in. There was a great blue bed in the middle of the room. A whole bunch of Cd's were scattered across the floor. “Do you like it?” A velvety voice said behind me. I gasped and turned around. There, was Edward, looking as sexy as ever. “I like you.” He said. Staring into my eyes. “I like you too.” I said back. I side stepped, trying to get Alice's room, when I tripped over myself. I closed my eyes and waited for the floor to hit me. But it never did.

I opened my eyes to see Edward's green ones staring back. His face was a few inches away from mine. He closed the distance with his lips. As soon as my skin touched his, fire started at my lips. But it didn't burn, it was an amazing sensation. I kissed him back. His tongue grazed my lip, asking for an entrance. I was happy to. Our tongues fought for domination, when I pull away, needing to breath. “Wow.” I said. “Wow is right.” He agreed. I looked up at him. I smiled and reached up and touched my lips to his again.
