It is finally peaceful in Forks. I gotover Edward, and Jake imprinted on a girl named Vanessa,everyone calls her Nessie, or Ness. But I’ve never seen himsince I changed. I, well I grew up even though it has been ayear since the Cullens left. It’s getting easier to say their names. Alice would love me now, I wear purple eyeliner with blue eye shadow that looks like a pool of sea water and bold red lipstick everyday. I got curves and learned tokeep my balance, I’m usually caught wearing tops with beads or sequins, skinny jeans, and stiletto heels. Today I’mwearing a black skin-tight shirt that has a teardrop necklineand red glass beads sewn everywhere to look like a rainfallof blood- ironic, isn’t it? I’m wearing that with grey skinny jeans and metallic-gold stilettos and a creamy cashmerescarf. I memorize and inspect my appearance ever day. Notonly do I still have Mike, Eric, and Tyler chasing me, but pretty much the whole male-student body at Forks High. ohyeah, I forgot… I… changed my hair because E-Edwardliked it. I dyed it black with blue and white streaks, it’s nowto my knees- no frizz here, Loren wouldn’t like that. I hangwith Jess and Loren, they brought out the mean girl in me, Ihave to admit it, we pretty much run the whole school.Wonder what Edward would think of me, I was like agoody-two-shoes slut, there is no way to describe it. I havethat ‘popular appearance’, but behind the public eye, I wasgood ‘ole Bella, plus more. Except for that shallow pool people call my mind. Sure, I got some good grades, butnothing like common sense. My hobbies are dirt bikeriding, cliff diving, and anything else dangerous I can think of. Those promises I made to Edward mean nothing to menow, he probably doesn’t even remember them, or evenme…
Bella! Stop dwelling on him! Remember, you’re over him, Oh My Goddess, help me and give me a miracle and ahint of what I should do!
That’s when I heard a soft knock on my door. I ran down the stairs- with no tripping!- hopingit was Jessica. She promised a weekend shopping spree inPort Angles. I now took my time when I realized my perkiness, Jessica wasn’t as rude, demanding, and as selfishas Loren is. I unlocked the deadbolt with ease and openedthe door. If it was Jess, I was ready, hair- check! make-up -check! accessories- check! Standing in front of me was themost beautiful creature I have ever seen in my life.
I took a terrified step back intothe house staring wide-eyed at him. He just lookedcautiously at me. He took a step into the house andEDWARD picked me up into his arms and crushed me tohim like he missed me more than I did months ago“Oh, Bella! What happened to you. I missed you somu-,” I cut him off by wiggling out of his arms“What the hell are
doing here” I said in mynastiest mean girl voice and gave him my famous icy glare.
