I have learned to live with being deaf, of corse I envy those who can hear, but I've had seventeen years to deal with it, there is no way for me to ever hear, it is impossible. I have been home-schooled all my life, and now I'm being forced to move in with my dad: Charlie, to forks. My mom is no longer ... here. Tears stung my eyes at the thought of my mother, but I held them back, I have to be strong. Being

I am not going to be home-schooled this time though, new place new me since I was seven I have been practising lip reading and I have nailed it I am also very good at speaking so no one will know I am deaf. I do not want people to ignore me, or give me the pity looks I just want to be normal or as normal as I can be.

My name is Isabella Marie Swan, but people call me Bella I am seventeen, 5’5, my hair and eyes are brown and really plain, my skin is very pale.

‘'I could order a pizza? You hungry? '' He asked.

‘'No, I'm just going to go to bed, long flight'' I answered and yawned dreading the next day, my first day ever at a public school. I just wish my mom would be here to help give me some advice and encouragement. That's when I let the tears fall.

This was going to be a long lonely two years.
