“Here’s your schedule Edward. Go ahead. Bella will join you shortly once I’ve sorted throughthis mess,” Ms. Jeffries said.Edward gave her another grin that sent her pulse quickening and said, “Thanks so much forall your help. See you soon Bella.” He left with a wink and a smouldering smile.
Chapter 2: First Day of School – Edward
“I swear Emmett if you don’t stop making her feel unsure of herself I’ll make you sorrylater,” I murmured to my favorite brother as we walked out of the office and towards ourrespective homerooms.
I’m just playing Edward. It’s not like she’s going to do anything wrong. Bella NEVER doesanything wrong. She’s not a hell-raiser like Nessie. It’s just fun to see her get self-conscious.
Emmett’s thoughts were amused and completely unafraid of me. “All the same, you’ve been warned,” I whispered.
Whatever. You overreact all the time man. Just chill and enjoy freaking the masses out today.
I smiled in spite of myself. The bell for homeroom rang.
You really wreaked havoc on that poor Jeffries lady Edward.
Jasper chuckled to himself ashe remembered her pulse quickening. I looked back over my shoulder for Bella and frownedwhen I didn’t see her. “Edward she’s going to be fine! You’ll see her soon,” Alice stated aloud.
Really she will befine. She’s just sitting there with an uncomfortable look on her face while Ms. Jeffries putsher schedule into the computer. Trust me. What is she wearing by the way!? God that girl ishopeless. What’s with the flats . . . and that shirt . . .
I began to drown out Alice’s internal discord with Bella’s perceived lack of fashion sense asthe thoughts of the students began to crowd my mind. We had walked into the hall whereall the lockers were. Jasper, Rosalie, and Emmett were moving down toward the seniorlockers. I half-listened to their reactions to us. “
That blonde girl is hot.”
Where did that dark-haired girl get those shoes?”
That guy looks big. I wonder if he plays football.”
Why are they all so pale?”
Holy crap, that guy is GORGEOUS.”
They look a little weird.”
I wonder if he’s single” . . .
Nothing original. I looked around for the room numbers until I found the right one. “Do we have any classes together Alice?” I said to her before I walked in. “We have English together, third period,” she said as she waited with me by the door of myhomeroom for Bella. “Go ahead to class Alice. You don’t want to be late on the first day.”
Ha! I’ll see you soon. So far Bella’s first day looks really uneventful, so don’t worry toomuch.
I smiled and walked into homeroom.
