Reading Twilight

So, I'm working on my Reading the Hunger Games Fan fiction, but I also want to do a reading twilight fan fiction. So this is the Cullens reading Twilght during New Moon.


5. Phenomenon

First things first, I do not own the Twilight saga.... So sorry it's taking me so long to update... Here's the next chapter...

"Who wants to read now?" Alice asked, after she was finished yelling at Edward. Rosalie and Esme yelled a bit with her. "Can I?" asked Emmet. "Sure" Alice responded and tossed the book to Emmet. 

"Chapter 3: PHENOMENON" read Emmet. 

When I opened my eyes in the morning, something was different.

It was the light. It was still the gray-green light of a cloudy day in the forest, but it was clearer somehow. I realized there was no fog veiling my window.

I jumped up to look outside, and then groaned in horror.

A fine layer of snow covered the yard,

Edward groaned. "I think I know what this chapter is about" he said. 

dusted the top of my truck, and whitened the road. But that wasn't the worst part. All the rain from yesterday had frozen solid - coating the needles on the trees in fantastic, gorgeous patterns, and making the driveway a deadly ice slick. I had enough trouble not falling down when the ground was dry;

Jasper and Emmet snorted. "Don't laugh at her" Edward snapped. 

it might be safer for me to go back to bed now.

"YES" Edward yelled. "But then you wouldn't be able to see her that day" Emmet said with a smirk. "I don't care, it would have turned out better" he responded. 

Charlie had left for work before I got downstairs. In a lot of ways, living with Charlie was like having my own place, and I found myself reveling in the aloneness instead of being lonely.

"That's a little sad" Rosalie commented sadly.

I threw down a quick bowl of cereal and some orange juice from the carton. I felt excited to go to school, and that scared me. I knew it wasn't the stimulating learning environment I was anticipating, or seeing my new set of friends. If I was being honest with myself, I knew I was eager to get to school because I would see Edward Cullen.

"She seems very excited to see you, Eddie ol' boy" Emmet said teasing him. "Don't call me Eddie" Edward said, though it wasn't very mean because he was smiling as he said it. 

And that was very, very stupid.

Emmet and Jasper cracked up. 

I should be avoiding him entirely after my brainless and embarrassing babbling yesterday.

"It wasn't brainless and she wasn't babbling" Edward said lowly. How could hi-no, not his- how could Bella think that way? 

And I was suspicious of him; why should he lie about his eyes?

"Secrets, secrets, Edward" Alice said with a smirk. 

I was still frightened of the hostility I sometimes felt emanating from him, and I was still tongue-tied whenever I pictured his perfect face. I was well aware that my league and his league were spheres that did not touch.

"Not true" Edward whispered. 

So I shouldn't be at all anxious to see him today.

It took every ounce of my concentration to make it down the icy brick driveway alive.

Emmet and Jasper snorted. Edward was tense, knowing what was to come. 

I almost lost my balance when I finally got to the truck, but I managed to cling to the side mirror and save myself. Clearly, today was going to be nightmarish.

"Clearly, so you should stay home" Edward urged. "You do know it has already happen, right?" Rosalie asked Edward. Edward nodded and said "but it doesn't make me feel any better."

Driving to school, I distracted myself from my fear of falling and my unwanted speculations about Edward Cullen by thinking about Mike and Eric,

"Oh, how lovely" Jasper said towards Edward. "To distract herself from you, she thought of Mike and Eric." They were still trying to get him to agree to go home back to Bella. 

and the obvious difference in how teenage boys responded to me here. I was sure I looked exactly the same as I had in Phoenix. Maybe it was just that the boys back home had watched me pass slowly through all the awkward phases of adolescence and still thought of me that way.

"Probably" Alice said. 

Perhaps it was because I was a novelty here, where novelties were few and far between.

"She shouldn't think so lowly of herself" Rodalie said. "You probably added to it Edward" she continued. Edward flinched and growled. She knew that they had to get the old Edward back, but he also needed to realize what he has done to Bella. 

Possibly my crippling clumsiness was seen as endearing rather than pathetic, casting me as a damsel in distress.

"Definitely" Emmet said. "Edward always saves her" he continued. 

Whatever the reason, Mike's puppy dog behavior and Eric's apparent rivalry with him were disconcerting. I wasn't sure if I didn't prefer being ignored.

My truck seemed to have no problem with the black ice that covered the roads. I drove very slowly, though, not wanting to carve a path of destruction through Main Street.

They all snorted. Knowing Bella, that would happen. 

When I got out of my truck at school, I saw why I'd had so little trouble. Something silver caught my eye, and I walked to the back of the truck - carefully holding the side for support - to examine my tires. There were thin chains crisscrossed in diamond shapes around them. Charlie had gotten up who knows how early to put snow chains on my truck.

"That's so nice" Esme said with a smile. 

My throat suddenly felt tight. I wasn't used to being taken care of, and Charlie's unspoken concern caught me by surprise.

"It shouldn't" Carlisle said. 

I was standing by the back corner of the truck, struggling to fight back the sudden wave of emotion the snow chains had brought on, when I heard an odd sound.

It was a high-pitched screech, and it was fast becoming painfully loud. I looked up, startled.

Edward tensed. Alice gasped finally figuring out what was happening. The rest looked as though it was coming onto them. 

I saw several things simultaneously. Nothing was moving in slow motion, the way it does in the movies. Instead, the adrenaline rush seemed to make my brain work much faster, and I was able to absorb in clear detail several things at once.

"Either way, she's not that slow" Emmet said. Edward growled and said between clenched teeth "Emmet, don't stop reading so much, I want to get this over with."

Edward Cullen was standing four cars down from me, staring at me in horror.

"Is that when you figured out that you liked her?" asked Alice. Edward could only nod, he was so tense. 

His face stood out from a sea of faces, all frozen in the same mask of shock. But of more immediate importance was the dark blue van that was skidding, tires locked and squealing against the brakes, spinning wildly across the ice of the parking lot. It was going to hit the back corner of my truck, and I was standing between them.

Edward growled. 

I didn't even have time to close my eyes.

All the vampires grabbed onto their mates except for Edward, who's mate wasn't there. 

Just before I heard the shattering crunch of the van folding around the truck bed, something hit me, hard, but not from the direction I was expecting.

They all glanced at Edward. He was tense, but not as much as before. 

My head cracked against the icy blacktop,

Edward winced. 

and I felt something solid and cold pinning me to the ground. I was lying on the pavement behind the tan car I'd parked next to. But I didn't have a chance to notice anything else, because the van was still coming.

"Of course" Emmet muttered. Edward scowled at him, but then noticed that the rest of the family was tense like him, just not as much. 

It had curled gratingly around the end of the truck and, still spinning and sliding, was about to collide with me again. 

Edward growled a little. He didn't want his Bella getting hurt. 

A low oath made me aware that someone was with me, and the voice was impossible not to recognize. Two long, white hands shot out protectively

They all smirked. 

in front of me, and the van shuddered to a stop a foot from my face, the large hands fitting providentially into a deep dent in the side of the van's body. 

"If only she didn't see that" Rosalie sighed. She was fine with Bella now, but at the beginning it was a little annoying. 

Then his hands moved so fast they blurred. One was suddenly gripping under the body of the van, and something was dragging me, swinging my legs around like a rag doll's, till they hit the tire of the tan car. A groaning metallic thud hurt my ears, and the van settled, glass popping, onto the asphalt - exactly where, a second ago, my legs had been. 

"That was close" Esme said, with a breath of relief that Bella wasn't hurt. 

It was absolutely silent for one long second before the screaming began. In the abrupt bedlam, I could hear more than one person shouting my name. But more clearly than all the yelling, I could hear Edward Cullen's low, frantic voice in my ear. 

"Frantic?" Emmet asked with a smirk. Edward glared and asked "What if it were your mate that was about to be hit?" causing Emmet to shut up. 

"Bella? Are you all right?"

"I'm fine." My voice sounded strange. I tried to sit up, and realized he was holding me against the side of his body in an iron grasp.

"Be careful," he warned as I struggled. "I think you hit your head pretty hard."

I became aware of a throbbing ache centered above my left ear.

"Ow," I said, surprised. 

Alice snorted. "She's very blunt." 

"That's what I thought." His voice, amazingly, sounded like he was suppressing laughter. 

"Well, it was a pretty weird statement after I had told her she hit her head" Edward defended himself. 

"How in the..." I trailed off, trying to clear my head, get my bearings. "How did you get over here so fast?"

"I was standing right next to you, Bella," he said, his tone serious again. 

"Like she would believe that" Jasper chuckled. 

I turned to sit up, and this time he let me, releasing his hold around my waist and sliding as far from me as he could in the limited space. I looked at his concerned, innocent expression and was disoriented again by the force of his gold-colored eyes. What was I asking him? 

"Ha. You distracted her" Rosalie laughed. 

And then they found us, a crowd of people with tears streaming down their faces, shouting at each other, shouting at us.

"Don't move," someone instructed.

"Get Tyler out of the van!" someone else shouted.

There was a flurry of activity around us. I tried to get up, but Edward's cold hand pushed my shoulder down.

"Just stay put for now."

"But it's cold," I complained.

"Like that's the priority right then" Rosalie stated amused. 

It surprised me when he chuckled under his breath. There was an edge to the sound.

"You were over there," I suddenly remembered, and his chuckle stopped short. "You were by your car."

His expression turned hard. "No, I wasn't." 

"She's not going to take a no" Alice smirked. 

"I saw you." All around us was chaos. I could hear the gruffer voices of adults arriving on the scene. But I obstinately held on to our argument; I was right, and he was going to admit it. 

They all laughed. "Your both too stubborn" Carlisle said. 

"Bella, I was standing with you, and I pulled you out of the way." He unleashed the full, devastating power of his eyes on me, as if trying to communicate something crucial.

"No." I set my jaw.

The gold in his eyes blazed. "Please, Bella."

"Why?" I demanded.

"Trust me," he pleaded, his soft voice overwhelming. 

"You tried to get her to forget?" Esme asked surprised. Not many vampires would give up their mate, although, Edward did leave her just a few months ago. Edward looked down sad. 

I could hear the sirens now. "Will you promise to explain everything to me later?"

"Fine," he snapped, abruptly exasperated.

"Fine," I repeated angrily. 

"Already fighting like a couple" Alice giggled. She thought that they were great as a couple, and will make Edward go back if he doesn't after these books. 

It took six EMTs and two teachers - Mr. Varner and Coach Clapp - to shift the van far enough away from us to bring the stretchers in. Edward vehemently refused his, and I tried to do the same, but the traitor

They all snorted. 

told them I'd hit my head and probably had a concussion. I almost died of humiliation when they put on the neck brace. It looked like the entire school was there, watching soberly as they loaded me in the back of the ambulance. Edward got to ride in the front. It was maddening. 

"I would expect that" Alice said. "You should have road in the back with her."

To make matters worse, Chief Swan arrived before they could get me safely away.

"Bella!" he yelled in panic when he recognized me on the stretcher.

"I'm completely fine, Char - Dad," I sighed. "There's nothing wrong with me."

He turned to the closest EMT for a second opinion. I tuned him out to consider the jumble of inexplicable images churning chaotically in my head. When they'd lifted me away from the car, I had seen the deep dent in the tan car's bumper - a very distinct dent that fit the contours of Edward's shoulders... as if he had braced himself against the car with enough force to damage the metal frame... 

"How does she observe all that, even when she is hurt" Emmet asked surprised. 

And then there was his family, looking on from the distance, with expressions that ranged from disapproval to fury

"Rosalie" Emmet coughed tease her. Rosalie glared and hit him in the back of the head. 

but held no hint of concern for their brother's safety. 

"Well, I guess that would look strange" Jasper admitted. 

I tried to think of a logical solution that could explain what I had just seen - a solution that excluded the assumption that I was insane. 

"It would be nice if she found a different one" Rosalie stated. "Then she wouldn't have had to get hurt so much"

Naturally, the ambulance got a police escort to the county hospital. I felt ridiculous the whole time they were unloading me. What made it worse was that Edward simply glided through the hospital doors under his own power.

"That does make it worse" Alice sympathized. 

I ground my teeth together.

They put me in the emergency room, a long room with a line of beds

separated by pastel-patterned curtains. A nurse put a pressure cuff on my arm and a thermometer under my tongue. Since no one bothered pulling the curtain around to give me some privacy, I decided I wasn't obligated to wear the stupid-looking neck brace anymore. When the nurse walked away, I quickly unfastened the Velcro and threw it under the bed.

"A lot of patients do that" Carlisle said. 

There was another flurry of hospital personnel, another stretcher brought to the bed next to me. I recognized Tyler Crowley from my Government class beneath the bloodstained bandages wrapped tightly around his head. Tyler looked a hundred times worse than I felt. But he was staring anxiously at me.

"Bella, I'm so sorry!"

"At least he apologized" Esme said. She was mad that he almost hit Bella, but she could tell that he felt bad. 

"I'm fine, Tyler - you look awful, are you all right?" As we spoke, nurses began unwinding his soiled bandages, exposing a myriad of shallow slices all over his forehead and left cheek.

He ignored me. "I thought I was going to kill you! I was going too fast, and I hit the ice wrong..." He winced as one nurse started dabbing at his face.

"Don't worry about it; you missed me."

"He's probably so confused." Edward chuckled. 

"How did you get out of the way so fast? You were there, and then you were gone..."

"Umm... Edward pulled me out of the way."

He looked confused. "Who?"

"Edward Cullen - he was standing next to me." I'd always been a terrible liar; I didn't sound convincing at all.

"She knew she was lying?" Rosalie asked, amazed. 

"Cullen? I didn't see him... wow, it was all so fast, I guess. Is he okay?"

"I think so. He's here somewhere, but they didn't make him use a stretcher."

They all chuckled. "I can't believe she's still stuck on that." Emmet chuckled. 

I knew I wasn't crazy. What had happened? There was no way to explain away what I'd seen.

They wheeled me away then, to X-ray my head.

"That must be annoying." Jasper said thinking. He knew that he would hate that. 

I told them there was nothing wrong, and I was right. Not even a concussion. I asked if I could leave, but the nurse said I had to talk to a doctor first. So I was trapped in the ER, waiting, harassed by Tyler's constant apologies and promises to make it up to me.

They all laughed, all except Edward since he knew had a crush on Bella from this. 

No matter how many times I tried to convince him I was fine, he continued to torment himself. Finally, I closed my eyes and ignored him. He kept up a remorseful mumbling.

"Is she sleeping?" a musical voice asked.

They all glanced at Edward. 

My eyes flew open.

Edward was standing at the foot of my bed, smirking. I glared at him. It wasn't easy - it would have been more natural to ogle.

This made everyone, including Edward, to snort. 

"Hey, Edward, I'm really sorry -" Tyler began.

Edward lifted a hand to stop him.

"No blood, no foul," he said, flashing his brilliant teeth. He moved to sit on the edge of Tyler's bed, facing me. He smirked again.

"You're probably annoying her." Emmet smirked toward Edward, who just growled at him. 

"So, what's the verdict?" he asked me.

"There's nothing wrong with me at all, but they won't let me go," I complained.

"I would complain too" Alice said with wide eyes. 

"How come you aren't strapped to a gurney like the rest of us?"

"It's all about who you know," he answered. "But don't worry, I came to spring you."

Then a doctor walked around the corner, and my mouth fell open. He was

young, he was blond... and he was handsomer than any movie star I'd ever seen. He was pale, though, and tired-looking, with circles under his eyes.

"That's all Carlisle" Jasper and Emmet cheered. Carlisle smiled at them, seeing how excited that he was in the book. 

From Charlie's description, this had to be Edward's father.

"She was correct" Esme said with a smile. 

"So, Miss Swan," Dr. Cullen said in a remarkably appealing voice, "how are you feeling?"

"I'm fine," I said, for the last time, I hoped.

"You can't hope that, someone will always come after you start hoping" Emmet said, as though it has happened to him, which it probably has. 

He walked to the lightboard on the wall over my head, and turned it on.

"Your X-rays look good," he said. "Does your head hurt? Edward said you hit it pretty hard."

"It's fine," I repeated with a sigh, throwing a quick scowl toward Edward.

"Some people would appreciate that" Rosalie said confused. "Yeah, but Bella isn't in the category with some people" Emmet unnecessarily answered his mate. 

The doctor's cool fingers probed lightly along my skull. He noticed when I winced.

Edward looked down. He wished Bella would tell the truth. He knew Bella would say she was fine. 

"Tender?" he asked.

"Not really." I'd had worse.

"She will have even worse soon" Emmet said sadly. Edward growled toward him. "Don't bring that up" Edward growled. Emmet nodded not wanting to push Edward. 

I heard a chuckle, and looked over to see Edward's patronizing smile. My eyes narrowed.

"Well, your father is in the waiting room - you can go home with him now. But come back if you feel dizzy or have trouble with your eyesight at all."

"She wouldn't" Jasper said smiling. That's just Bella's way, and they all knew it. "Can we go back home?" Jasper all of a sudden asked Edward. Edward who had been staring off into space looked at him with a frown. "We can't. It would endanger Bella." "What if Bella's in more danger with us not being there?" Jasper asked. The rest of the family wanted to interrupt but they let Jasper handle it. He could sometimes get Edward to understand better than the rest of them. Edward winced ans looked away. "I've thought about that, but I don't think it's possible." Jasper glared. "What about werewolves? We know that there are some." Jasper reasoned. The rest of the family had hopes since that was a good point. "NO! WE ARE NOT GOING BACK!" Edward had enough and shouted. The rest of them gasped. They couldn't believe that Edward had shouted that. Edward stood in shook. He couldn't believe it himself. He looked like he wanted to take it back, but he just sat down and looked toward the floor. "Please read, Emmet" Edward mumbled. Everyone looked at him in worry. 

"Can't I go back to school?" I asked, imagining Charlie trying to be attentive.

"Maybe you should take it easy today."

I glanced at Edward. "Does he get to go to school?"

"Someone has to spread the good news that we survived," Edward said smugly. They all snorted, except fpr Edward who was still looking down. 

"Actually," Dr. Cullen corrected, "most of the school seems to be in the waiting room."

"That's how popular Bella is." Alice smiled. 

"Oh no," I moaned, covering my face with my hands.

"That's our Bella" said Emmet with a smile. Edward was actually smiling at that statement too. 

Dr. Cullen raised his eyebrows. "Do you want to stay?"

"No, no!" I insisted, throwing my legs over the side of the bed and hopping down quickly. Too quickly - I staggered, and Dr. Cullen caught me. He looked concerned.

"Did you care about her already?" Esme asked. "Well, I knew that Charlie was ok with  us, so I wanted Bella to be ok." Carlisle answered. 

"I'm fine," I assured him again. No need to tell him my balance problems had nothing to do with hitting my head.

"Take some Tylenol for the pain," he suggested as he steadied me.

"It doesn't hurt that bad," I insisted.

"It sounds like you were extremely lucky," Dr. Cullen said, smiling as he signed my chart with a flourish.

"Lucky Edward happened to be standing next to me," I amended with a hard glance at the subject of my statement.

Emmet and Jasper were snickering. "She's going to try and get the information out of you, isn't she?" Emmet snickered. Edward just nodded. 

"Oh, well, yes," Dr. Cullen agreed, suddenly occupied with the papers in front of him. Then he looked away, at Tyler, and walked to the next bed. My intuition flickered; the doctor was in on it.

"I'm afraid that you'll have to stay with us just a little bit longer," he said to Tyler, and began checking his cuts.

"Too bad" Esme sighed. She wished that both were ok enough to leave then. 

As soon as the doctor's back was turned, I moved to Edward's side.

"Can I talk to you for a minute?" I hissed under my breath. He took a step back from me, his jaw suddenly clenched.

"Your father is waiting for you," he said through his teeth.

"You smelt her blood?" asked Rosalie. Edward nodded. "That sucks" Emmet said. 

I glanced at Dr. Cullen and Tyler.

"I'd like to speak with you alone, if you don't mind," I pressed.

He glared, and then turned his back and strode down the long room. I nearly had to run to keep up. As soon as we turned the corner into a short hallway, he spun around to face me.

"What do you want?" he asked, sounding annoyed. His eyes were cold.

"that's no way to speak to her, even if you were smelling her blood." Esme said. Edward just mumbled an apology, since he was still in a bad mood. 

His unfriendliness intimidated me. My words came out with less severity than I'd intended. "You owe me an explanation," I reminded him.

"I saved your life - I don't owe you anything."

I flinched back from the resentment in his voice. "You promised."

"Bella, you hit your head, you don't know what you're talking about." His tone was cutting.

"You tried to play it off? Off of Bella?" Emmet laughed. No one could really get anything past Bella. 

My temper flared now, and I glared defiantly at him. "There's nothing wrong with my head."

He glared back. "What do you want from me, Bella?"

"I want to know the truth," I said. "I want to know why I'm lying for you."

"She does have a good reason" Alice amended. Everyone agreed, even Edward. 

"What do you think happened?" he snapped.

It came out in a rush.

"All I know is that you weren't anywhere near me - Tyler didn't see you, either, so don't tell me I hit my head too hard. That van was going to crush us both - and it didn't, and your hands left dents in the side of it - and you left a dent in the other car, and you're not hurt at all - and the van should have smashed my legs, but you were holding it up..." I could hear how crazy it sounded, and I couldn't continue. I was so mad I could feel the tears coming; I tried to force them back by grinding my teeth together.

"Oh, she cries when she's mad?" Rosalie asked. They had never gotten Bella mad enough to cry, or she forced it back. 

He was staring at me incredulously. But his face was tense, defensive.

"You think I lifted a van off you?" His tone questioned my sanity, but it only made me more suspicious. It was like a perfectly delivered line by a skilled actor.

"HAHA! you were caught" Jasper teased Edward, who just glared at him. 

I merely nodded once, jaw tight.

"Nobody will believe that, you know." His voice held an edge of derision now.

"I'm not going to tell anybody." I said each word slowly, carefully controlling my anger.

Surprise flitted across his face. "Then why does it matter?"

They all looked at Edward. "It would matter to anyone who saw it" Rosalie said amazed that Edward tried using that as an excuse. 

"It matters to me," I insisted. "I don't like to lie - so there'd better be a good reason why I'm doing it."

"Can't you just thank me and get over it?"

"Thank you." I waited, fuming and expectant.

"You're not going to let it go, are you?"

"Did you expect her to?" Emmet asked, curious. "No" was all Edward said. 


"In that case... I hope you enjoy disappointment."

"That was a little mean" Alice told Edward. 

We scowled at each other in silence. I was the first to speak, trying to keep myself focused. I was in danger of being distracted by his livid, glorious face. It was like trying to stare down a destroying angel.

"Why did you even bother?" I asked frigidly.

"It's because you're his mate, even though he left you" Emmet said scowling. Edward was seriously considering attacking Emmet. Jasper could feel his emotions and gasped. "Emmet, you may want to stop. Edward feels like attacking you right now." Jasper told Emmet quietly, even though they could all hear him. They all glanced at Edward who was scowling at Emmet. 

He paused, and for a brief moment his stunning face was unexpectedly vulnerable.

"I don't know," he whispered.

"Mate" Emmet coughed. Edward growled and got up. "Where's Bella when you need her?" Emmet asked scared, since Bella could calm Edward down sometimes. Jasper sighed and used his power to calm Edward down. "Emmet. Stop" Carlisle commanded, even though he wanted to go back. It wasn't right to tease Edward... right now. 

And then he turned his back on me and walked away.

I was so angry, it took me a few minutes until I could move. When I could walk, I made my way slowly to the exit at the end of the hallway.

The waiting room was more unpleasant than I'd feared. It seemed like every face I knew in Forks was there, staring at me.

They all snorted. 

Charlie rushed to my side; I put up my hands.

"There's nothing wrong with me," I assured him sullenly. I was still aggravated, not in the mood for chitchat.

"What did the doctor say?"

"Dr. Cullen saw me, and he said I was fine and I could go home." I sighed. Mike and Jessica and Eric were all there, beginning to converge on us. "Let's go," I urged.

"Gotta get outta there quick" Emmet agreed.

Charlie put one arm behind my back, not quite touching me, and led me to the glass doors of the exit. I waved sheepishly at my friends, hoping to convey that they didn't need to worry anymore. It was a huge relief- the first time I'd ever felt that way - to get into the cruiser.

We drove in silence. I was so wrapped up in my thoughts that I barely knew Charlie was there. I was positive that Edward's defensive behavior in the hall was a confirmation of the bizarre things I still could hardly believe I'd witnessed.

"You just confirmed her" Rosalie sighed. At first, she was against Bella knowing and they all knew that. 

When we got to the house, Charlie finally spoke.

"Um... you'll need to call Renée." He hung his head, guilty.

I was appalled. "You told Mom!"


"It's probably better that he had called her. A mom should know what's happening with her daughter." Esme said. 

I slammed the cruiser's door a little harder than necessary on my way out.

My mom was in hysterics, of course. I had to tell her I felt fine at least thirty times before she would calm down. She begged me to come home - forgetting the fact that home was empty at the moment - but her pleas were easier to resist than I would have thought. I was consumed by the mystery Edward presented.

"Good thing you kept her from leaving" Alice said, she would have lost her best friend before they even became friends. That would have been sad. 

And more than a little obsessed by Edward himself. Stupid, stupid, stupid. I wasn't as eager to escape Forks as I should be, as any normal, sane person would be.

I decided I might as well go to bed early that night. Charlie continued to watch me anxiously, and it was getting on my nerves. I stopped on my way to grab three Tylenol from the bathroom. They did help, and, as the pain eased, I drifted to sleep.

That was the first night I dreamed of Edward Cullen.

"Aww" all the girls cooed. Edward smiled a little, happy that Bella dreamt of him and not some other boy. "Well, who wants to read next?" asked Emmet.
