3. Chapter two: Different worlds

Edward’s age: 17
Bella’s age: 17

Edward’s POV

I park my car in the school’s lot and get out. Lauren is once again skipping school, telling me she has more important things to do than attending classes. I sigh and watch Bella arrive with my sister. After our first meeting we talked once more and that was to tell me that she couldn’t hang out with me. The very next day I saw her with my sister. I walk to my first class: Biology AP. The one and only class I have with Bella. It’s not that she ignores me, but we just exchange pleasantries. I have always hoped that we could be friends, but I guess my sister thinks otherwise. Ever since that day I think my sister is the reason why Bella doesn’t want to be friends with me. I don’t know what she has said to her, but it was enough to ignore me.

“Good morning.” Bella’s greeting pulls me out my musings. I look at her and give her a smile.

“Good morning. How are you?”

“I’m fine, thank you.” At that moment Mr. Banner walks in the room and asks for silence. Bella, the perfect student she is, starts immediately paying attention. I write down what is said and after an hour the bell signals that it’s time for our next lesson. I put my books away and look at Bella.

“See you later,” I say to her, but she ignores me and walks to Rosalie, who is waiting at the door. I sigh. I wonder what was said last year.

~*~*~*~*~

At the end of the day I was waiting at my car for my girlfriend to appear. I promised her I would take her to Port Angeles. Suddenly a car stops next to the group with my sister. A guy steps out of the car and Bella jumps immediately in his arms. I cannot believe that she has a boyfriend. He looks a lot older than us. I look at my watch and see that I’m already waiting for fifteen minutes. I want to leave when Lauren finally arrives.

“Eddie, I’m so sorry. Jessica and I were having so much fun and we lost track of time.”

“I was just leaving, Lauren,” I answered her. “I’ve waited for fifteen minutes.”

“Sorry, are we still going to PA?”

“Sure, get in the car.” I look one last time at the group and see Bella getting in the car of that guy. I don’t know what to think of that.

“Eddie, are we leaving?” I nod and finally get in the car. I start it and pull out. When I’m on the road I press the accelerator. With my speeding we arrived after a half hour. I park the car and look at Lauren.

“Where to?”

“Our usual place,” she answers before stepping out of the car. I follow and we walk to Twilight. It’s a place where they don’t check our ID’s and we can drink alcohol.

“A bottle of tequila?” I ask Lauren. She nods and I go to the bar.

“A bottle of tequila and two shot glasses.” The bartender gives me what I asked for and I give him my credit card. I take everything to the table and pour the first shots.

“To a long and happy life,” Lauren toasts. I drink the shot in one gulp. “Another one.” I pour some more drinks.

~*~*~*~*~

Later that evening, and I don’t know how many shots later, I decide to go home. I waddle to my car, while I’m looking for my keys.

“You know drinking and driving is dangerous.” I turn around to see Bella standing on the sidewalk looking at me.

“How do you know?” She walks to me and takes my car keys out of my hand.

“I lost my parents because of a drunken driver,” she answers while walking to the driver’s side. She looks at me before opening the door.

“What are you doing?” I finally ask.

“I’m taking you home or were you intending to drive yourself?” Her tone leaves no place for argument. She steps in the car and shuts the door. She forces me to follow her lead and in the end I step in my car. “Where to?” At first I don’t answer and just look at her. She waits for my answer and knit one brow in question.

“Uhm, yeah. I will tell you. Just start driving to Forks.”

“I just don’t get some people.” she whispers and I’m not sure if it was for my ears. “Drinking and driving after is ridiculous.”

“What?” I’m not sure if I heard her correctly.

“I don’t understand stupid people like you.” she says louder. “Why would you drive when you were drinking?”

“I- I don’t know.”

“That’s not an answer.” She keeps her eyes on the road. “Do you know what can happen?”

“Nothing ever happened.”

“You’ve never had an accident, but do you know how many people died in an accident caused by a drunken driver?”

“Uh, no... should I?”

“Yes! Almost twenty thousand people!” she yells. “I thought you were a smart guy, but after tonight…not so much.”

“I’m a smart guy,” I retort. “Sometimes I like to drink.”

“And drive. By the way, where is Lauren?”

“She’s staying with a friend in Port Angeles.” I look out the window and see the scenery changing. “Why were you in Port Angeles?”

“My boyfriend lives there,” she answers. “I was going to call my father to pick me up.”

“When did you lose your parents?” I ask her, remembering she mentioned the death of her parents. She sighs and closes her eyes briefly.

“I was very young and don’t remember much. My adoptive parents told me they were hit by a drunk driver. They died on the scene.”

“I’m sorry. If I…”

“Stop!” I look at her and see that she has an angry look in her eyes. “Don’t say if I had known. Even if you knew and I wasn’t there you would drive the car in a drunken state.” I can’t argue with that, because I know it is true. A cab to Forks is too expensive and I have to get home one way or another.

“You’re right, but still, I’m sorry.” We are finally passing the ‘Welcome to Forks’-sign and I want to start giving her the directions to my home, but notice she knows where to drive. When she parks the car, she immediately steps out and helps me out. She walks me up to the front door and knocks. “I have my keys.”

“Maybe, but I’m going to deliver you personal to your parents.”

“Are you kidding me?” I’m really hoping that both my parents are sleeping, but my luck isn’t on my side.

“Edward?” My Mom opened the door. “Bella?” My Mom knows Bella?

“Good evening, Esme,” Bella greets my Mom. “Edward couldn’t drive home, so I decided to bring him, but now I don’t have a way to go home. Can somebody drive me home?” I feel Mom’s eyes on me and I know she can tell that I’ve been drinking.

“Thank you. Carlisle will take you home.” She opens the door for me. “Go to your bedroom, Edward. We’re going to talk tomorrow.” I walk inside and go directly to the stairs. I hear Mom speaking to my father and a phone starts ringing.

What a day!

 

Isabella’s POV

Stupid boy.

“Carlisle, will you drive Bella home?” Esme asks her husband.

“Sure, darling. Why is she here so late?”

“I drove Edward home, because he wasn’t capable of doing so himself.” Carlisle has a knowing look in his eyes. He looks at Esme and sighs. My phone rings and when I look at the caller ID I see that it’s my father.

“Hi, Dad.”

“Bella, is Paul bringing you home or do I have to come get you?”

“It’s not necessary,” I answer him. “I’m on my way.”

“Okay. I was worried. Normally you text us, when you leave Port Angeles.”

“I know, but something came up. You don’t have to worry about me.”

“I’ll see you soon.”

“Bye.” I hang up and look at Carlisle. “Can you drive me home now?”

“Of course. Just let me get my car keys.” I say goodbye to Esme and leave the house. Seconds later we’re driving to my home. I look out of the window and try to remember my birthparents. I was so young when I lost them, that even the smallest things are difficult to remember.

“You’re so quiet. Is something wrong?” Carlisle’s question pulls me out of my thoughts.

“Just remembering my biological parents.”

“Aaah, Alice told me you’re adopted, but she never told me how you lost them.”

“That’s because I’ve never told her.”

“Do you mind me asking you?”

“No,” I close my eyes and take a deep breath. “Their car was hit by a drunk driver. They died instantly.”

“That’s why you drove Edward home, tonight.” It doesn’t sound as a question, but I still nod. The rest of the drive is spent in silence. This silence gives me time to think about the reason why I ignored Edward most of the time. It wasn’t by choice, but because someone threatened me.

---Flashback---

Edward has just dropped me of at my English class and is now leaving for his class. I go to the teacher and give him the slip.

“Miss Swan, welcome to Forks High,” he greets me. “You can sit next to Miss Mallory.” He points somewhere in the classroom and I follow his finger, only to see a blonde girl glaring at me. If looks could kill, I would now be six feet under the ground. I wonder what I did to earn that look. I walk to the desk and take my seat.

“Hi, my name is Bella Swan.” I reach my hand out, but the girl scoffs. I put my hand back and start to follow the lesson. The whole time I feel the glare from that girl. At the end of the class I have had enough and I confront her.

“Look, I don’t know what I did to earn your glare. Hell, I’m new here and I hardly did anything to earn something like that. I want to know what your problem is.”

“You are my problem!” she yells. “Keep your fucking hands of my BF.”

“First, I don’t even know who your boyfriend is and second, normal people don’t speak with abbreviations.” I shouldn’t have said that. Oh well.

“Who do you think you are? You are not normal if you don’t even remember who you were talking to before this class.” It starts to sink in and I realize who her boyfriend is.

“Edward,” I whisper.

“Yes, and you have to stay away from him.”

“Or else?” I challenged her. What can she do to me?

“Or else I’ll show who’s boss around this school.” She picks up her books and left me standing with an open mouth.

---Flashback---

Later that day, I told Edward I couldn’t be friends with him. I met his sister, Alice, and became best friends with her. She told me that Lauren is the Mayor’s daughter and because of that she thinks that she’s better than everyone else. Everybody hates her, except Edward. Love makes people blind. It is so true if we speak about Edward and his girlfriend. He is blind to all her mistakes and believe me, she has a lot mistakes. I can’t count them on one hand. Hell, I can’t even tell them on two hands.

“Bella, we’ve arrived.” I look up and see that we’re parked in front of my house.

“Thank you, Carlisle.” I smile at him and open door. “See you next time.”

“You’re welcome and I’ll see you next time.” I get out of the car. I stand still to see him drive away and then walk in my house.

What a day!
