Preface
I know what anyone would expect out of a story like ours. Well, let me tell you, that is not us. Thisis not the story of a boy and girl that grew up together, best friends, where the boy makes a vow to protect the girl. If you were to tell that to us we'd laugh our butts off. But the story of our friendship, of our bond is quirky and weird. And it is full of humor and drama and just plain awesomeness.This is the story of Edward and Bella. This is our story. This is not a love story, though we do loveeach other. This is not a glorified Harlequin novel that the intellectual in me despises though from timeto time enjoys a worn and forgotten copy found wrapped in paper at the bottom of one of my friends' bookcases.Our back story is plain and simple: We grew together, to be honest I don't really know how we met.I just know that I cannot think back to my childhood without Edward's goofy face in it. I guess our moms were friends, or met at a park when we were babies. Who knows... Who cares...I'm the only child of only children. Grandparents long gone. At the age of ten I learned what it is to be all alone in this world, as all my past, and all my hope of some sort of tangible history went down ahill on a dark rainy night. It was hard. I won't trivialize it.But I want you to see with my eyes, to understand even more what this friendship has meant to me.I was taken in by Edward's parents, Esme and Carlisle. I thank my lucky stars for them. Their family ismy family, and yet is not. A few months before I was born Esme had Edward and Emmet. The joke isthat they are too far to resemble twins. Not only physicaly but personality wise they couldn't be further apart. Esme jokes that Edward and I are more twins than her own sons, and when she talks about her tiwns, people that don't know us that well assume that it is indeed Edward and I the ones that sharedEsme's womb. I love Emmet as well, he is by all menas my brother, but we don't have the sameconnection Edward and I do. I feel bad because more than once he gets left outside of our world, butyet again, he was always the extrovert. Carlisle told me once they were happy about me being so closeto Edward. They were worried about his shyness. I can't think of him as shy, he's no Emmet, but he isconfident and outgoing, Carlisle said that that was me bringing that out in him. I was glad to hear that, Ialways thought he had gotten the crappy end on this bargain. Edward and I are best friends but yetmore, we are like sibling and yet not quite.We are about to graduate form high school. Just about to dive head on our adult years, and this isour year of discovery. This is the story that I want to share. Of how this amazing and terrifying worldcan be perceived, seized by us, by someone like us.1
