Chapter 1 Trouble
It was second period and by far one of the most uneventful days of the year.
Edward was off hunting with Carlisle and Esme for the day and naturally Alice had tried toconvince me to stay home from school and have "fun" with her. After much arguing,however, we both dragged ourselves to school and prepared for another boring day of Forks High.Our boring day soon became one that I would never forget.It was second period and by far one of the most uneventful days of the year, until a manthat I recognized as our principle walked into our English class and asked if we could"talk". Of course, the entire class eyed me suspiciously, curious as to why I was beingsummoned to a place that people like me just didn't go to. Alice's expression was differentthan the rest, one of her eyebrows were raised as if she were challenging whatever I wasgoing to be punished for before he even spoke his concerns.When we were finally in the hall, I nervously looked the principle. He appeared calmenough."Do you currently have your student handbook with you?"I caught my breathe, grateful that I hadn't forgotten the book that we were told to carryaround with us in my locker. He took it from my hands and flipped to page 19 whilepointing a steady finger at an article. From his patient expression, I assumed that hewanted me to read it.
Clothing deemed inappropriate by the board are as follows:Excessively short shorts/skirts An article of clothing that reveals the midriff or chest Spaghetti straps of any kind 
After reading that final line I looked up at the principle who was still smiling kindly at me."I didn't realize." I said, shocked at the predicament that I was in. Naturally, Alice hadchosen my outfit, and although it wasn't simply just a spaghetti strapped shirt since I hada baggy shirt that drooped below my shoulders on, it was clearly in violation of thehandbook.He nodded his head in understanding. Just then we both diverted our attentions to theclassroom door. Alice had the bathroom pass in her hands and she looked ready for anargument. The principle politely waited for her to pass, but I knew that no such thingwould happen."What is going on here?" she questioned, although she knew full well what had happened.After glancing at the book that the principle still had in his hands, she spoke again. "Bella'sattire is clearly not against the dress code." she stated.The principle's eyebrows raised at the rebel. "Oh?""Yes." Alice continued. "If she's wearing a shirt over it then it's not just spaghetti straps.And there's nothing wrong with spaggetti straps anyway!"The principle waited for her to finish. "But the shirt still reveals the straps and---"
 
"And you consider a woman's shoulder being exposed dirty?" she asked bewildered. "Thisis a joke!"The principle's lips were pursed in a thin line. He obviously didn't like Alice getting the bestof him."Isabella, if you would, could we please go to my office?"To this, Alice took a step in front of us. "If you consider that a violation of the dress codethen you'd go crazy if you saw some of the girls in this school!"The principle's face was starting to darken in anger and I wondered if Alice was aware of how much she wasn't helping the situation."Alice." I said in a stern voice. She eyed both of us suspiciously before turning to go backto class. I was fairly confident that her skirt was "excessively short". The principle mustnot have wanted to get involved with someone that would give an attitude back. I followedhim to his office quietly, aware of the looks that I got from kids passing by.When we reached his office he kindly told me to "take a seat" as he walked around hisdesk to the larger and more comfortable of the two chairs."Here at Forks High we take our dress code seriously-" a few images of Rosalie's attire flewthrough me head. "- and we don't tolerate this sort of violation to the rules." More of Rosalie's indecent clothing came to mind. They took it seriously?"We have also noticed a change in the people that you talk to in school, as well as achange in your grades, and frankly, we are concerned."So it wasn't the dress code that had made him bring me here. He was looking for anyexcuse to get me in trouble so that he could discuss these changes since Edward hadreturned. The revolution made me angry."Do you have anything to say for yourself?""Yes." I stated angrily, before I was able to control myself. "Why are you so curious aboutmy life? It really is none of your business. And as for my clothing, are you blind or is it justokay for models like Alice and Rosalie to break the dress code?"The principle's eyes widened at the unexpected attitude. Dress code wasn't something thatour school really cared about. Everyone broke it, except me. What he did next I wasn'texpecting. He pressed the button next to his speaker on the desk."I apologize for the interruption but can Alice Cullen and Rosalie Hale please report to thePrinciple's office? Thank you."He took his finger off of the button and looked at me expectantly.This was going to be a long, potentially painful, day.
Chapter 2 Rosalie
It took a few minutes before Rosalie and Alice entered the principle's office- Alice lookedannoyed while Rosalie looked livid. I gave a weak apologetic smile."Bella has brought it to my attention that you two repeatedly break the dress code." theprinciple stated, his eyes scanning Rosalie's exposed legs. Rosalie folded her arms over herchest and looked at me expectantly.
 
"That's not exactly what I said." I defended myself. "I just said that lots of girls break therules and that I shouldn't be punished for it."Alice's eyes shifted between me and the principle while Rosalie spoke up. "Johnson, she'stelling the truth."All three of us looked at her in wonder."I-it's Mr. Johnson.." the principle clarified. Rosalie continued."It isn't fair at all the way that you are treating Bella. It's obvious that the dress code isn'tthe problem here, so since Bella is going to be my sister soon, I'd like to hear what yourreal problem is." Alice and I exchanged bewildered glances before looking back at Rosaliewho had now elegantly crossed her legs in a chair. Mr. Johnson's eyes continued toappraise them."The dress code should be taken more seriously and you are in no position to tell me whator what not to do, Ms. Hale."Alice and I then looked at Rosalie, ready for the upcoming battle. Slowly, Rosalie liftedherself out of her chair and to a standing position, slowly walking towards the principle.Mr. Johnson looked flustered as she neared him and a droplet of sweat formed on hisforehead. When she was only about a foot away from the man, she spoke."I am no position to tell you what to do? As an American citizen aren't I supposed toquestion abusive authority? As a principle aren't you supposed to encourage family values?Or are those morals and values that you overlook, Mr. Johnson? As a student in level oneclasses and straight As, I'm sure the Board of Education would appreciate a reliablestudent such as myself expressing my concerns."Mr. Johnson stared at her in amazement but she stood adamantly. I wasn't sure whether Iwas supposed to agree with her or just let her handle the entire situation herself,considering that it was my fault she was here.It took a moment for Mr. Johnson to speak again. "What do you mean that she'll be amember of your family?""She'll be marrying my brother. There is no date yet, but my sources tell me that it's goingto happen." she answered coolly.I glanced accusingly at Alice, who was giving me an apologetic smile."However," Rosalie continued. "I'd appreciate knowing what you plan on doing about thissituation. It's important to report problems immediately, you know. We wouldn't want theBoard of Education having to replace anybody on short notice."The principle looked astonished at the girl that he was supposed to be punishing onlyseconds ago. Rosalie showed no signs of backing down as she looked at him expectantly."Let's... discuss this at another time." Mr. Johnson stammered."If I allow that then Bella can't be punished while Alice and I are gone. If you were topunish her while we're gone then that would be considered bullying." Rosalie argued. I hada feeling that she had a lot of pent up anger that she had been wanting to release.Mr. Johnson looked between the three of us for a few moments before replying in the mostdignified voice he could muster.
