Head Over Heels

Maya was one of those normal girls just waiting to be noticed. A wallflower of sorts. When the day came that a guy finally noticed her, she jumped to the opportunity of having a friend for once. But what she doesn't know is that she has to face the biggest decision of her life- something that could actually mean just that. What will happen when she finds out that she is being used by Emmett to play the biggest games in her life?


6. Hope

The week before, I prayed that some conflict would come up and cancel our plans. I was desperate enough to hope for a world apocalypse. Well, that didn't happen. The first part of our plan went smoothly. My mom was happy for me to "go camping" with the Cullens as long as there was "adult supervision". Carlisle assured her there would be (I mean, everyone but me and Renesme was over 18) and at 6:30 am, we boarded a plane to Italy. I sat next to the girl named Leah, who stared at me for awhile before starting a crossword puzzle. I spent most of the ride bouncing up and down in my seat, until the flight attendant, after flirting with Emmett, told me that my "ADHD was irritating the rest of the plane" and to "stop bouncing". It was really quite annoying. I eventually snapped and blew up at her, telling her to back off and leave my friends and I alone. Leah and Emmett laughed through the whole incident, while Bella just gave me a look of pity.

Finally, a few hours and a ton of snores later, we landed. Bella drove, pretty slowly actually (for a vampire, that is), and we got to the hotel eventually. By that time, I had already crashed on Emmett's shoulder (poor guy, he must've been dying with thirst) and woke with a start to find myself staring at the upside down wall of the elevator. Emmett had just looped me over his shoulder and carried me from the car. I tapped his shoulder.
"Umm, Emmett? Can you put me down?" Laughing, he gently swung me down and twirled me in a circle. No wonder Rosalie had a thing with him. He was easily lovable; quirky, clever, kind, strong yet gentle, everything a girl could wish for. But I knew better than to fall head over heels in love with him. I valued my short mortal life too much for me to want Rosalie to rip me to papery shreds...
As soon as we got to the room, Leah got to work. First, she handed me her clothes to put on and changed into some of Bella's. Then she began covering my face with natural-ish looking makeup, trying to perfect my face as much as possible. Lastly, she handed me a small package containing red contacts, which I immediately went to the bathroom to put in. I was awed by Leah's magic hand with the makeup. I was transformed into another person. I reentered the main room and walked straight into a gasping Emmett. "You are beautiful, almost like my type of being. You are stunning," he breathed into my hair as he hugged me. "All we have to do is try to cover up this ," he said, tapping over my heart. "And never stop hoping for a miracle."
