A B.A. in BS

Summary:
Dear Edward, I have finally gotten over you No, that won’t work. Dear Edward, It’s been 3 years now. You never returned. At least you could keep ½ of your promise; I never saw you again, but the whole thing about life being as if you never existed is a large heaping load of horse sh— GAH! How do you tell your high school sweetheart, the man you stole your heart never to return it, the man who obsessed over keeping you safe, the man who left you broken in a forest because he did not love you anymore…how do you tell him that that you are finally over him and moving on, kinda-sorta. How do you tell him if he’s moved away with his family and you have no way to contact him? You write his sister’s husband, that’s how! What happens if Edward really never returned and Bella went on with her life? What happens if she was able to get over Edward, leave Forks, go to college, and make a life of her own? Would his heart break if he knew she was over him and could surive without him? Would she ever see him again? What about is family-could she really live with out her best friend, forever? What about the wolves? Jake? And oh, dear....what about Victoria?? This story takes place after Edward left. Bella was too much "into" herself (her depression was too strong) that she never did any of the extreme sports, never jumped off the cliff therefore leaving on reason for Alice to come back or for them to go to Volterra. This should be interesting. (BTW the title essentially means ABachelor of Arts inBull Sh--) FAIR WARNING: THERE IS SOME OOC ACTIVITY (Out Of Character) Also, there's some senuality coming up so be prepared :-) I have this "book" finished and the second "book" started and hopefully finished by the end of my holiday vacation. Thank you for allowing me creative license with what's in my head which will soon be on "paper".This Story is rated ADULT for language, future fight scenes, and sensuality. I just wrote a scene in one of the chapters that warranted a change in rating, sorry.Updat: this book is finished-on to the next!


Notes:
You guys rock and I hope you'll fogive my months-long absence. School owned me for a while. I have a total of 23 chapters in this book and two more "books" after this. I hope you all enjoy!

Rating 5/5   Word Count 1017   Review this Chapter

I sat in the Visual Arts Center, room 212 waiting for the elusive Professor Staff to arrive.

“Attention class.” There’s no way that girl can be the professor. She was dressed like she had just come from the beach. Short black shorts, pink flip-flops, and a white halter top with her stringy blond hair in a pony on the top of her head. She was blonde and tanned. Perfect.

“I’m Brittany,” I chuckled. Figures. “I am the TA for this class. Professor Platt will arrive shortly. I’m much meaner and so stricter than she is, so you may want to watch what you say.” She put a bunch of manila folders she was holding on the podium and proceeded to open one of them and take out a large stack of stapled packets. The syllabus. I was at the top of the lecture hall, so I knew it would be a moment before it would get to me.

“I’ll also be the one grading your papers and assignments. If you want to get on my good side, I like chocolate.” The lecture room chuckled. She stood sternly.

“I’m not kidding.” Ok. This will be fun.

********

(POV change, but I’m not saying who…I know, I’m a meanie)

I briskly walked down the hallway. It was difficult for me not to move swiftly, I did not want to keep my human pace. If I did not slow down, I would give someone an interesting sight. My family encouraged me to return to college. I had been sullen and sulking for the past few years. I missed our Bella. She had become a memory as quickly as she had become a part of our family. It had torn all of us up inside. Each of us morning in our own way.

We moved quite frequently before deciding it was time to settle down somewhere. When we realized that it was about that time to go back to college, we succumbed to moving to the East Coast and enrolling in school. Our vampiric minds would allow us to excel here, but would not refrain from keeping memories of Bella at bay; memories of what it had done to her to leave and what it had done to our family.

Out of the seven of us: four were enrolled in school, one of them almost did not enroll because they were so sad they didn’t’ want to leave the house, two of us were teaching and the other family member was….freesias?

It’s not possible. I stopped in my tracks and inhaled deeply. There it was; wafting in from room 212; it was coming from my classroom.. The unmistakable sent of freesias. How was this possible? Obviously, she could be in school, too. It was only logical, but here? Our Bella was here? I took another deep breath to be sure. The smell was emanating definitely coming from my classroom. There was no doubt about it.

I paused as a wide grin appeared on my face. I was going to see our sweet Bella, again. I slowly walked towards the classroom. I did not want to startle anyone, but I also did not want get there and have it not be her. I walked slowly into the view of some students through the doorjamb. I put an appeasing smile on my face and walked through.

My TA was standing there coldly. I don’t know why she had to act like this. She was such a sweet girl deep down.

“…serious.” She finished her statement and I fully walked through the doorway.

I walked in and at the podium set down my planner and turned to face the students. I …

Bella POV

Finally the syllabus was handed to me by a girl in the row in front of me. She pleasantly smiled as she handed me my copy. She reminded me of Angela

I was thumbing through it,

Grade Breakdown

For each absence beyond that, unless it is previously approved or is a life or death matter for which I need to be aware of immediately, you will be docked 3% of your total final points as well as attendance points and quiz points. Attendance in any of your classes is of the utmost vital importance.

There will be a midterm and a final test; each worth 200 points. I addition, there will be a final sketching project as detailed on the next page. If you do not want to sketch, you may write a 15 page paper on the artist or painting of your choice, as detailed on the next page. The project/paper is with 150 points.

Extra Credit

I will allot and assign extra credit for participation in class, attending art shows or galleries and presenting a report on said gallery, or art events on campus. These points are subjective.

Total points possible: 3000

Wow. Professor Staff, I means Platt, put a lot of emphasis on attendance. That’ll be a wakeup call for some of my classmates. I have NEVER seen or heard of a professor having a class with 3000 points possible! That means to get an A, I have to have at least 2700 points. Wow. I blinked my eyes a few times, shook my head in disbelief and lifted my head up towards the front of the classroom as I heard someone walk in. I held my breath.

No. Way. There. Is. No. Way.
