1. The meeting

Rating 5/5   Word Count 1133   Review this Chapter

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There’s always one reason
To feel not good enough
And it’s hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins
Let me be empty
And weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There’s vultures and thieves at your back
And the storm keeps on twisting
You keep on building the lie
That you make up for all that you lack
It don’t make no difference
Escaping one last time
It’s easier to believe in this sweet madness oh
This glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

Bella POV:
The beating was brutal. But so was every other one. Charlie hated me to a point of abuse. He kicked me one more time and left. I had fifteen minutes to clean up and dress my wounds. I stood up and with a great amount of effort, went up the stairs. I wiped the blood of my face, arms, and legs. I put makeup on my face but I still couldn’t cover the bruises and cuts on my arms. I wore a long sleeved shirt and jeans. I picked up my backpack and started the 10 block walk to school.
Once I finally made it to school, I was early. But there was still some people here. A new family was getting out of a Jeep and a Volvo. They walked into the office. They were probably getting their schedules. I made my way to my locker and opened it quickly. I grabbed my books and got to my class with 5 minutes to spare. Two of the new kids were here. A blonde haired boy and a small pixie like girl. The boy looked at me and winced. He turned to the girl and whispered something. The girl stood up and came over to my desk.
“Hi! I am Alice! What’s your name?” Alice asked, overly perky.
“I’m Bella.” I replied, confused why she was talking to me. People usually avoid me.
“I like that name. May I sit here?” she asked. I nodded and she sat next to me. She held her breath for a strange reason. The rest of the class piled in and no one sat next to the blonde haired boy. I looked at the teacher and passed a note to the Alice. What’s the name of that boy you were sitting next to? It asked. She smiled and wrote back. His name is Jasper. He is my boyfriend. My family is all adopted, so he isn’t my real brother. I widened my eyes and looked at Jasper. He smiled and looked away. I looked back at Alice, who wrote something else on the piece of paper. Will you sit with us during lunch??? It asked. I nodded and smiled. Alice beamed. Then the bell rang. Jasper was out the door along with Alice. I grabbed my books and went to my next class. When I got out the room, someone ran into me, knocking my books to the ground with me following. I went to grab the books when a hand beat me to them. I looked up and saw a huge boy with black hair smiling.
“I am sorry, I wasn’t paying attention. Here.” He said, offering a hand. I took it and he pulled me up.
“What’s your name?” he asked, handing me my books. I smiled.
“I am Bella Swan.” I said.
“Cool. I am Emmett Cullen.” he winked at me. He walked off and I hurried to class. When I got there, I went to my desk in the back. It was hot in this room so I rolled up my sleeves, revealing the bruises and cuts. No one would notice though. I got out my homework and my pencil. I didn’t see him until he tapped my shoulder, which made me jump.
“Sorry. I am Edward. May I sit next to you?” he asked gently. I nodded. He glided over to the other side and sat down. He studied my arms, so I put my sleeves down.
“What happened to your arms?” Edward asked, worried. I suck at lying, but I can’t tell him the truth.
“Oh, I fell. Nothing too bad.” I said. I could tell he didn’t believe me, but he dropped the subject. The bell rang and the teacher came in. He looked tired and he started teaching the lesson. Edward was sitting as far away from me as possible. Weird, but I ignored it. Instead I thought of other things. My mind finally wandered to my mother, who had passed away. That is why I live with Charlie. She died over 2 years ago. My thoughts stopped here as I started to tear up. I put my head down and the tears came out, impossible to stop. My teacher didn’t notice. But Edward did.
“Bella, are you okay?” he asked in a whisper. I didn’t answer him, I just went up front and said I didn’t feel good so I could go lay down in the nurse’s office. When I was half way there, Alice came running up to me. I was still crying.
“Bella? Bella! What’s wrong?” Alice asked. I looked down. I can’t tell her. But I want to!
“I have a headache.” I lied. She frowned.
“Tell me the truth.” she said stubbornly. I sighed.
“Fine, but we have to leave school. Can I go to your house?” I asked, regretting this.
“Can the rest of the family come too?” she asked. I nodded.
Within 15 minutes, we convinced the nurse to let us go, piled in the two cars, and got to the house. Actually, it looked more like a mansion. Once we got inside, Alice brought me over to the couch and made me sit down.
“Okay, first let me introduce you to the family. You already know Emmett, Jasper, and Edward. This is Carlisle and Esme.” she pointed to her parents, who smiled at us.
“This is Rosalie.” she pointed to a gorgeous blonde.
“Everyone, this is Bella.” Alice said. Everyone smiled.
“So, tell us why you were crying so badly.” Edward said. Everyone nodded. I took a deep, shaky breath and began my life story,
