I sat in fourth period with thoughts of Edward still in my head. I could hear Mrs. Grant's lecture, but what she was saying was incomprehensible.

You might as well admit you are a serious space cadet . . . My mind murmured bored. I wanted to tell my inbred mind mine to 'bite me,' but I was already a freak as it was. Why make it more obvious?

My head lulled forward, my eyes burned willing me to close them just for a little while. A thought occurred to me; why was it always Mrs. Grant's class I start to doze off in?

I never realize how tired I actually am until I get into her class.

"Miss Swan, I would greatly appreciate it if you paid attention." Mrs. Grant murmured from in front of my desk giving me a stern look.

Where the hell did she even come from? I could have sworn she was across the room at her desk a minute ago.

"Can I use the washroom? I need a moment." I muttered. I needed an excuse to get out of this classroom for five minutes before my head exploded.

"Hopefully, you'll return to class more awake. Go." She replied.

I sighed in relief and rushed out of class to the washroom. Luckily the washrooms were all empty and I chose the furthest stall from the bathroom door and slammed it shut as I let my backpack slide off my arm onto the floor. I slid down against the wall to sit down and put my head in my hands.

The bathroom door suddenly whipped open, heels clicking against the tile as two girls walked in. Shit. . .

"I can't believe Tanya is such a slut," I heard Lauren Mallory murmuring to someone.

"I know right, I bet she's slept with every guy in this damn school." Jessica Stanley replied. I could hear them going through their purses looking for god knows what.

"I bet she's even got her scummy paws on Edward Cullen." Lauren muttered, jealousy evident in her tone. Jessica laughed, the cap of her lipstick popping open.

I could see them looking at themselves in the mirror and all their shit from the purses spread out on the sinks.

"Lucky bitch, but have you noticed Edward's sudden interest in that freak Bella Swan? It's getting on my nerves." Jessica murmured as she tried to talk and put lipstick on at the same time.

Of course with a brain as small as hers she failed miserably.

"Oh please, he is so not interested in that circus clown. She's just his next conquest because she's the new girl." Lauren rolled her eyes confidently.

"Whatever." Jessica snorted.

My mouth fell open slightly. How could . . . what?! My fists clenched at my sides as I stared at the wall with a blank expression.

What the hell just happened? I thought as I heard the bathroom door close behind them. I felt like I was in some drama movie caught right in the middle, and what did they mean about me being his next conquest?

Maybe it's April fool’s day. My devious mind roared in laughter.

So, Edward Cullen was a man whore now? Well, that's a . . . terrible thought, but it made me laugh anyway.

After a day’s work of avoiding Edward during lunch, I arrived to biology late and made up another lame excuse to Mr. Banner as to why I was late.

Of course, my luck of avoidance ends here since Edward was sitting at the lab table where I needed to be. Son of a mother. . .

"Hey Bella," He smiled at me as I reached the lab table. I must have looked speechless for a moment as Edward stared at me waiting for me to speak.

"Hey," I muttered slyly. Edward's eyes narrowed at me.

"Did I do something wrong?" He wondered. No, unless you're planning on having me in your bed with you tonight, then we might have problems.

"Not yet." I murmured. Edward stared at me for a long moment trying to figure out what the hell I was talking about. Yeah, as if you don't know.

"What is that supposed to mean exactly?" He demanded warily.

"I don't know. Why don't you ask Jessica and Lauren about their little chat while they were in the bathroom," I said, pausing to look at his expression.

"Just leave out the little detail about me being in a stall and hearing the whole thing." I smiled a fake sweet smile. Edward's mouth dropped, staring at me incredulously.

"Mr. Cullen and Miss Swan, is there something you would like to share with the class?" Mr. Banner asked, interrupting our conversation. I looked away running my hand through my hair trying not to laugh as I heard Edward cough beside me trying to hide his laughter.

"No sir. Bella was just letting me look at the notes I missed the other day." Edward murmured beside. Mr. Banner didn't really seem to believe him, but he let it go and continued on with his lecture.

"Do I want to know what they said?" He asked cautiously.

"Well, it was about you, so I figured you might." I told him, and now that I thought of it; Edward a player, who sleeps with any girl he can get his hands on? Give me a break. . .I laughed. I heard Edward groan beside me looking extremely annoyed and aggravated.

"What did they say this time?" I pursed my lips taking my sweet ol' time to answer his question.

"Bella." he warned.

"Mr. Cullen and Miss Swan, you are distracting your fellow students as well as me. Pay attention!" Mr. Banner warned.

Fellow students my ass, pal! They're all animals with the hormones and. . .well, I have no right to say that, but still, you get the point don't you?

I ignored Mr. Banner and when he turned toward the board I continued my previous conversation.

"Apparently, you sleep around a lot and you're having a bit of a fling with Tanya. Whoever the hell she is." I said, trying not to laugh at the thought.

Edward looked stunned and I may have detected a hint of amusement in his eyes, but that could have just been me because I was definitely amused by this little fiasco.

"You know, for a split-second there I believed it, but that whole player type thing . . . doesn't suite you." I chuckled as he raised his eyebrows.

"I'm just going to take that as a compliment."

"You should. It's a compliment of the highest order." I grinned. Edward shook his head chuckling.

"So, is that all Jessica and Lauren had to say then?" He asked amused. Well, other than the fact that they think I'm your next conquest, yeah that was it, but I wasn't going to mention that little detail was I?

"Um, they might have said something else too." Apparently, I was. . .

"Tell me." Edward demanded narrowing his eyes at me.

"If you think you're intimidating me you are nuts." I said, narrowing my eyes at him. Edward smirked at me pursing his lips.

"I'd say the same to you." He chuckled. Why does it feel as though these odd, but ridiculous conversations with him are never going to end?

I found my excuse to dodge his question just as the bell rang. I rushed out of class muttering a quick 'bye,' to Edward. You'd think I would have learned my lesson by now.

I tried to push past everyone in the hall to get out of Edward's eye sight, but then suddenly a warm hand wrapped around my wrist spinning me around to come face to face with no one other than Edward. He looked almost smug with the crooked grin that etched onto his face.

"I hate you." I told him, glaring as we walked down the hall. Apparently, Edward was going to my seventh period class today.

"Hate is a very strong word, Bella." He smirked wickedly. The bastard knew he had me trapped now.

"Well, my choice of vocabulary is used very wisely, so the word 'hate' in my terms is very meaningful." Edward pursed his lips clearly amused.

"You know, you never fully answered my question."

"Oh, I didn't know I don't have a choice in the matter." I said evasively.

"Exactly, you don't have a choice in the matter. So, now you, Bella Swan, are going to tell me all about their little shenanigans or else." Edward said, crossing his arms expectantly. I bit my lip debating my options, and to tell the honest truth; I didn't have very many.

"They said that I am, well, your, uhm, next conquest." I mumbled unable to look at his face. I didn't know exactly what happened until Edward burst into laughter in front of me leaning over with his hands on his knees.

"I didn't think it was very funny, but apparently you do." I muttered rolling my eyes while Edward was trying to control his laughter.

"That's what you were so afraid to tell me?" He chuckled, a wicked glint in his eyes.

"I was not afraid to tell you. I just didn't want to tell you." I said defensively.

"And why is that?" He was smiling now. Why the hell does he think that was so stinking' funny? It's ridiculous if you ask me.

We were standing in front of my seventh period class now. Edward was leaning against the wall looking like a Greek Adonis yet again. I really wouldn't mind slapping him right now just to get rid of that damn smile on his face.

"I didn't want to raise that cocky ego of yours." Obviously I must have said something wrong.

"So, I'm cocky now?" He raised his eyebrows unable to keep himself from smirking at me. I really hated his guts. . .

"That and you're an arrogant bastard." I was pushing it, but I couldn't think of a reason to care.

"How do you know me so well?" He laughed.

"Wouldn't you like to know?" I smiled, waving goodbye as I walked into class. I could not afford to be late to another class again today.

I met Angela Weber in the parking lot after school. I've only gotten to talk to her during lunch because I'm distracted by Edward in Biology. Can you make it any more obvious, Bella?

She was one of those shy and quiet girls, but unlike the rest of the girls in the school who hate me, she was nice enough to invite me to sit with her and her friends during lunch. Unlike the rest of Forks High School who think I showed up here just for their entertainment.

"Hey Bella," She smiled.

"You look like you just came from hell and back." She chuckled.

"You have no idea."

"I'm not usually the one to ask, but what's up with you and Edward? I mean ever since that day in biology you two seem like old friends." She wondered curiously. Oh no! Not her too!

"I don't know. I guess we just sort of bonded over it somehow." I shrugged. Yeah, that was a total lie, but how would she know, right?

"Well, I'm not trying to annoy you or anything. It's just people are talking a lot." She admitted, frowning slightly.

"I don't care. Let them talk." I rolled my eyes even though I did care a little.

"Good for you, Bella," She laughed, glancing at something behind me.

"Uhm, I guess I'll see you later then." She waved walking away. I turned around to go to my truck when I bumped into something hard. I looked up quickly to see a smirking Edward staring at me.

"You should really watch where you're going, Bella." He grinned.

"You know, I hate to admit it, but the last person I was expecting to bump into was you." I muttered rolling my eyes.

And Angela thought we were both to be blamed. She really should be blaming Edward; he just can't seem to stay away.

"I meant to ask you something earlier, but you side-tracked me." He chuckled. I hate guys that have an adorable laugh that make you smile.

"Go on, if you must."

"Can I, uhm, call you this weekend?" His crooked grin made its grand entrance all innocent like. If I knew any better, I'd bet that grin could get away with murder.

"Do I want to know why?" I wondered. Edward pursed his lips.

"Well, from what I've gathered about you probably not, but that's just too bad." He smiled, oh so sweetly.

"You really are as devious as you look." I grumbled.

"Glad you think so, Swan." He said as he pulled out his phone. We exchanged numbers while every student in the parking lot stood by their cars watching us.

Are we really that entertaining to stand and stare at without even try to hide it? While Edward stood there seeming completely obvious to all the stares I noticed all of them.
