"How was your session with Dr. Cullen?" Charlie wondered as I walked into the kitchen. I should have guessed Charlie would ask about my therapy session the second I walked in the door.

"Uhm, weird." I muttered; I didn't know what I thought about my therapy session yet.

"Weird, how so?" He asked.

"Dad, its therapy. Of course it's weird. Oh do you know who Edward Cullen is?" Where the hell did that come from? I don't even think I was planning on asking that particular question. Charlie dropped whatever it was he was holding. He's a goner. . .

"Charlie?" I asked, a little worried.

"Have you met um . . . Edward, Bella?" Charlie turned to look at me. I felt suddenly intimated by my own father. Speaking of crazy.

"I. . . I, no not yet." I stuttered. I mentally cursed myself for sounding guilty for no reason.

"Well, I have nothing personal against him or any of the Cullen's, Bell's. It's just Edward." He seemed thoughtful and worried at the same time.

"Care to explain, Dad?" I wondered.

"Never mind, it's not important." Charlie narrowed his eyes at me. I glared at Charlie for a moment.

"Fine." I sighed, looking away.

"Someday, either I'll tell you or you'll realize it yourself, but not today." Charlie explained. He rambled about something as he walked out of the kitchen. What did he know about Edward Cullen that I needed to realize? I was clueless and frustrated.

I pulled into the parking lot at Forks High School the next day. I sat in my truck for no reason really. I should be heading to first period, but for some reason I would not move. I wanted to just fall asleep. My eyelids were getting heavier and heavier by the moment until a silver Volvo parked on the far side of the parking lot. My eyes kept trying to flutter open. Someone with bronze hair was stepping out of the Volvo before my eyes failed me and I fell asleep.

My eyes fluttered open to see rain clattering against my window. Shit! I fell asleep. What time was it? I quickly looked at my cell phone. It was only eleven thirty. Damn, I missed four periods. Charlie isn't going to be happy. Saying I fell asleep in the truck probably wasn't going to be a good explanation. I groaned and ran inside heading for the cafeteria. I entered the cafeteria searching for the nearest empty table. I jumped when I found one and quickly ran to it. I covered my face with my hands and sighed. I had no idea what I was going to tell Charlie. I knew he was going to find out. Whether the school called him or not I was screwed. My fingers dug in my skin. I hope I bleed to death.

I glanced around me, no one was paying attention to me. Have a great fucking day. . . I thought bitterly. I glared at the back of a bronze head of hair for no reason. Your head looks like its on fire. Let me get a liter and get rid of your flames for you. So evil Bella, I like it. I really hate my inbred mind. I continued to glare at the back of a bronze head out of my own personal hell. I wanted to punch something; the bronze head of hair was tempting. Bronze head sitting there with four others. I had no idea who any of them were, but the bronze haired one was pissing me off.

Don't date men with bronze hair, Bella, you might end up killing them. I growled cursing at my mind again. Some people were giving me funny looks. I glared at them. Some of them looked away, others kept staring.

Go ahead and stare you pedophiles. I'll get a restraining order on your...

The bronze head suddenly turned around and glanced around the cafeteria before his eyes suddenly landed on me. Mother fuck! I glared at the boy, from twenty feet away he looked like Adonis himself. Of course it only heightened my hatred for this person. He stared at me with a frustrated expression before he suddenly glared back at me.

Yeah, fuck you too! I seethed internally. The bronze Adonis shot up from his seat and shoved away from it. He was almost out of the cafeteria doors when he turned around, his eyes found mine again and then he smirked.

Oh hell no! Bella kick his ass! I glared at him and flipped him the bird, his eyes nearly popped out of his head. I felt all eyes on me and I didn't give a shit. I had a problem with this bronze Adonis; starting now. When I looked back at the cafeteria doors the bronze bastard was gone. Maybe he'll disappear forever.

What the hell was happening to me? I just flipped off someone who I never even met. I smacked my forehead with my palm. My eyes met about ten other gazes.

"Can I help you?" I hissed at them. They all quickly turned around and ignored me for the rest of the period. The bell rang and I quickly headed to biology in a daze.

I sighed when I sat down at my table. Please don't make me stay in here. I really felt like ditching and just going home. I had no idea what I would tell Charlie. What if I felt sick and was sent to the nurse? Ah, that just might work. What would be my symptoms? Well, Bells, you could have a headache, nausea, stomach ache, or hallucinations.

Thanks brain. . . I thought bitterly. I should just stick with a headache; I'd have a better chance of...

"Hello." An amused velvety voice said. Ah shit, I forgot I had a lab partner. I slowly turned to face the unexpected when I looked up to see the Adonis. Fuck, this is where I wanted a death wish.

"Oh, fuck me." I mumbled, turning away from the Adonis and hiding in my hair. I heard a soft chuckle as the Adonis sat in the seat beside me.

"You're Bella Swan, right?" He asked, still highly amused.

"Sure." I said, maybe he wouldn't massacre me if he didn't know my name.

You're so stupid, Bella. You sit next to him every day now, remember? Oh, why did I have to be such an ass during lunch? Oh right, I'm an idiot.

"Well, I'm Edward Cullen." I could almost see the smile on his face as he said that. Suddenly, I realized something very, very obvious.

OH FUCK! I shot up from my seat and stared down at him. Oh my . . . I just . . . he was . . . lunch.

Wow Bella, you really are a dumbass. Edward was staring at me incredulously.

"Are you okay?" He asked sounding a little concerned. I rubbed my forehead; I have a migraine, a really big one.

"I feel tired. . ."I mumbled before everything suddenly became dark.

"Bella?" Someone was talking to me; I couldn't tell who it was. My eyes fluttered. Someone was hovering over me, my vision blurring. I blinked a few more times. Why am I in a hospital?

"What happened? Charlie?" I asked, worried.

"I'm right here, Bella." He said concerned.

"What happened?" I wondered; I couldn't recall a thing.

"Bella, you fainted in biology." Charlie informed me. Oh, oh, oh no.

"Oh . . . I knew . . . that." I mumbled.

"You almost hit your head Bella. Luckily, Edward grabbed you before you did."

"What?" I shouted, almost falling out of the bed.

"Calm down, Bells. He sounded worried. He's in the waiting room." I broke out into a fit of coughing. Edward Cullen was in the waiting room? What the hell?

"I'll go get him." He said as he patted my shoulder.

"No!" I yelled glaring at Charlie. Was he mad?

"Bella, relax." Charlie rolled his eyes before he walked out of the room. Crap! Crap! Crap! I closed my eyes wishing for death to fall upon me. I heard footsteps coming closer. Please don't let it be...

"Bella?" That velvety voice asked hesitantly. I wanted to die as I reluctantly opened my eyes. There he was, Edward the Greek Adonis only a few feet away. A crooked grin appeared on his flawless face.

"I didn't know I was related to you." I muttered incoherently. Maybe that'll make him go away. Edward continued to stare at me, amusement evident in his expression.

"I'm pretty sure you aren't, Bella." Edward chuckled, scooting a seat over.

"Oh no, you can leave." I told him desperately.

"I don't think I can. Plus, I think you owe me an explanation for why you fainted in biology today." Edward smiled at me as I frowned. Edward waited, staring at me expectantly.

"I'm not telling you of all people." I said pointedly. Edward stared at me with narrowed eyes.

"I saved you from hitting your head on a desk and a possible concussion. I deserve an explanation." Edward insisted, I groaned.

"I don't want to tell you."

"Why not?" He demanded curiously.

"Because I just don't." I definitely wasn't planning on telling him it was because of him.

"Okay then." He said, almost glumly. He slowly began to head toward the door. A strange feeling overwhelmed me; I suddenly didn't want him to go.

"Can you stay? I need company anyway. I'll be bored if you go." I said embarrassed. He froze for a moment before turning around and returning to his seat. Edward smirked at me when he sat down to face me. Cocky ass. . .

"What?" I growled.

"You do know you're highly entertaining right?" He asked, smirking slightly. Did he know he could quite possibly cause me to faint again?

"If I faint again, it's all your fault." Oh no, I just said that out loud. Edward stared at me incredulously before going into a fit of hysterics.

"Is that why you fainted in biology?" He teased. I barely knew him and somehow it felt like I've known him for a while.

"Not exactly." I said. He narrowed his eyes at me.

"Can I at least get a thank you for saving you?" He asked, smiling innocently.

"Okay, may I just say your evil and thank you for saving me." I smiled at him.

"Why am I evil?" He asked, eyes furrowed.

"Look in a mirror, Cullen." I said, trying to make a clear point.

"I have and I don't see. . ." He trailed off; a slight brush crept across his cheeks.

"Oh, now he blushes hmm, what else does super hero Edward do?" I asked sarcastically.

"Ha-ha, very funny Bella." He rolled his eyes. I never noticed his emerald green eyes and I could easily get lost in them. Bella, are you on drugs? Maybe I was what do I care.

"Thanks for flipping me off during lunch today, Bella, really." Edward smirked at me. I blushed instantly smiling innocently at him.

"I was having a bad day." It sounded like a question. Edward chuckled.

"How so?" He wondered curiously. This would be the time where I wish I never opened my big mouth!

"I have a lot of uhm. . .issues." I mumbled, fidgeting with the bed sheets. I glanced at Edward's face expecting to see the judgment in his eyes. There was none. He just stared at me for a long moment, he looked as though he were trying to piece something together in his head.

"I don't believe that." He said quietly. I stared at him in shock. I didn't know what to say to that.I felt like I was intentionally trying to scare him away, but why?

Because he'll get bored of you and you're a freak, Bella. He pursed his lips, trying not to smile. His eyes met mine again.

"Can you promise me something, Bella?" He asked as I waited to hear his request.

"Please try not to faint again, unless I'm there to catch you, of course." He smirked.

"Bite me, you ass." I retorted. Okay time for Edward to hit the road.

"Maybe some other time, Swan." He laughed, heading toward the door. He suddenly seemed so lighthearted and easy to talk to.

"Oh, and Bella?" He said, turning around to look at me with his hand on the doorknob

"What now?" I rolled my eyes, bemused.

"Don't be late for biology tomorrow, or ditch. We have a project to work on, partner." Edward winked at me, before heading out the door. I'm going to kill em'! I hate arrogant bastards named Edward.

When I got home that night after being released from the hospital I couldn't get what happened today with Edward off my mind. He probably thinks I'm absolutely insane, which isn't exactly the case.

I sighed curling up in bed and tried to fall asleep, but I should have known better, my mind kept me awake until it was satisfied.

"Bella, why are you such a freak?" Edward called. He was pointing and laughing at me. Surrounded by Mike, Lauren, Jessica, and other students whose faces were blurred and I could not see because I was crying with tears sliding down my face as Edward continued to laugh at me.

I gasped loudly shooting up from my bed, glancing around me to notice I was still in my bedroom and not at school. I sighed in relief holding my hand to my chest trying to calm my breathing, when I noticed a shadow standing in the corner of my bedroom next to my dresser.

"Edward?" I stared at him as he stood in the corner watching me with a curious expression. Then, suddenly, he was gone. Just like that.

"Shit!" I flew off my bed, throwing my bedcovers across the room as I rushed to the bathroom. This could not be happening, why was I dreaming of Edward now?

I opened the mirror in search of a specific bottle of sleeping pills that I knew Charlie tries to hide from me. Somehow I managed hit my head against the mirror after I had found the bottle of pills.

"Son of a . . ." I yelled, somehow not waking Charlie up with my cursing. I glanced in the mirror to see the damn thing had left a red line on the side of my forehead. Not only does the world hate, but inanimate objects also hate me, lovely. I couldn't fall back asleep that night, even with the sleeping pills in my system.

I pulled into Forks High School parking lot with a one hell of a migraine and a red mark still on the side of forehead. I could feel my eyes begging for sleep as I hopped out of my truck slamming the door behind me.

"Rough night?" I gasped, a sort of squeak coming from my throat as I whipped around to find Edward Cullen smirking at me.

Bastard . . .

I didn't say anything, ignoring him as I walked toward the main entrance.

"I'll take that as a yes, and please get the hell away from me." He said, quicky catching up to me and matching my pace. I glanced up at him from the corner of my eye waiting for him to get the hell away from me like he so well figured out on his own. Edward's eyes narrowed sllightly as he noticed I was actually waiting for him to go away. The playfulness in his demeanor dulled.

"Do you want to talk about it?" He wondered, reassuring me with his eyes that it was okay to talk to him.

"I mean, I know we just met yesterday, but," He paused glancing at me for a moment trying to process what he was about to say.

"I don't know. I guess I feel like I know you somehow." He closed his eyes, pressing his fingers to the bridge of his nose as he shook his head.

"That's not quite what I meant." He murmured running his hand through his hair.

"Don't worry about it. I know what you meant." I said. Understanding what he was trying to get across, well, to a point at east. Edward stared at me for a moment, not sure whether he believed me, or just didn't know whether or not to go.

"Right well, I'll see you in biology then," He made a small smile and walked away.
