Disclaimer: I do not own twilight or any related characters.Chapter One:Bella's POVThe bell for 4th period had just sounded. This was my lunch period. I usually just spent the hour in the library far away from the cafeteria and the "popular" kids as possible. Today was my unlucky day as the library was closed and it was pouring rain outside. I thought about eating in my truck but I'd forgotten my lunch at home and realized one day in the cafeteria couldn't be that bad. It was anew year after all and I was finally a Senior. I had been lucky the last year and a half if you could really call it that, nothing more than invisible, even therumors had died down now, and everyone just thought of me as a nerdy loner instead of that girl. That's the way I like it, I could focus on my grades and getting into a good college. Today on the other hand, I didn't get by so easily. A couple of boys were passing the football back and forth to each other in the hallway, and of course since I am a magnet for things like balls in the face I triedto duck out of the way. Of course that only landed me face first into someone'slocker door. Of course it was Lauren Mallory's."Watch it you ugly bitch" Jessica sneered as she stood next to Lauren. I haven'thad a run in with them in since the middle of Sophomore year, right after it happened. I still can't believe that my best friend would take his side, that wasthe darkest night of my life.Mr. Greene stopped me as a was heading out to my truck after school. "Miss Swan,would you be interested in peer tutoring after school? We are are in need of acouple of tutors this year. No one has really signed up yet, and with your grades I thought you could help us out?" He sounded hopefull but could tell that I wasn't that excited about it. "It would really look good on college applications."Of course he had to throw that one in. I knew he was right and I needed all thehelp I could get, not in the grade department but having outside activities. Iwasn't into sports and needed something. I was hoping for a scholarship somewhere so I could afford to actually go to college."I suppose so" I said. Mr. Greene looked pleased as he handed me some information. I drove home and was upstairs looking over what Mr. Greene had given me whenI heard the front door open."You home Bells?" I heard Charlie calling from downstairs."Yeah Dad, be down in a minute." I hadn't realized it was so late. "Sorry aboutdinner, I lost track of time.""No problem honey, listen we can just order pizza or something.""Are you sure dad, I really don't mind fixing dinner." And I didn't, I really enjoyed cooking it was sort of any escape for me."I don't mind honey you deserve a night off. Why don't you go out tonight, you know hang out with some of your friends?""Um, you know dad I have a really big paper to do and I am kind of tired, I think I will just go to bed early tonight." I said hoping that Charlie would just let it go. No such luck."Come on Bells, its Friday night go out, have some fun" Charlie tried to sound enthusiastic.
