'Shut up!'I snapped.Rosalie hale laughed softly.I glared at my bestfriend.
'What,whats wrong with teasing you about your hair?'She asked.Her bell voice was sarcistic as she made fun of my hair.She tossed her gold hair and it shone in the lights.My har was plain,boring.
'Seriously,Rose.Drop it.'I turned away from her.She didnt answer,so i guessed she had dropped it.Her golden brown eyes were reproachful.
'Sorry Bella,i was just kidding around.'
I shook my head in disbelief.After all this time,she still got scared of me leaving her.My silly bestfriend was way out of my league with beauty.When we first met in our sophomore year,i had been intimidated by her.I had seen a beautiful blonde girl,with the perfect figure and perfect features.But i had braved my insurcurites to go say 'hi' after i noticed how she sat alone.
'Hello.I'm Bella Swan.'
I remember how3 she smiled at me with tentative friendship.
'I'm Rosalie Hale.Do you want to sit down?'
AN dof course,i had accepted.WHo wouldnt?After that,me and Rosalie had become inceperable.
'Bella?Earth to Bella?'
I looked back at her.
'You have fun with that.'She tossed her hair again and twiddled her thumbs.I threw a apple at her.She caught it neatly and passed it back to me.
'My family called.'She said.I perked up.Rose's family didnt live with her.I had only met her brother Jasper.They lived together,but he disapeared alot.He didnt seem to like me much.
'Really?How are they?'
'Fine.They're thinking about moving down here...'She bit down on her full lip,like she was upset by this idea.Rose had moved down here because of her Edward.Well,not actual brother.Her mother was dead and she and Jasper had been taken in by thier aunt as foster children.But her foster mother,Esme,had also adopted three children.they were her age.She had decided to move when she and one of the adopted boys,Edward,had gotten into a fight.Jasper went with her,only because it was his sister.
'What do you think about it?'I asked kindly.She smiled at me.
'I'm okay with it.I'm just worried about how Edward will behave.He's so childish sometimes.'She grimaced to herself,still looking like an angel.
'Well,you'll get to see Alice and Emmett.'I reminded her kindly.She smiled.
'Yeah,i guess.'She still looked miffed about Edward.Then,her phone went off.She opened it and offered it to me.
'Please.'She whispered.I held it to my face,
'Rosalie's cell.'I answered dully
'Who is this?'I asked,getting annoyed.
'Edward Cullen.I'm looking for Rosalie.'
A grin spread across my face. 'She's busy right now.Sorry Eddie.'
I heard a growl. 'Just put her on,Isabella.'
'I don't think i will...'I hedged,enjoying myself.Edward and i had a love hate relationship.I talked to him on Rosalie's cell alot.He called me Isabella because it annoyed me,and i called him Eddie for the same reasons.
'Oh for the love of all that is holy!I need to talk to her!'He snapped.
'Eddie,be nice.What would you like to talk to her about?'My tone was reproachful.
'Uhhh. Its about the recent family choice we were discussing-'
'You mean you guys coming down here?'
'Yeah.I forgot she tells you everything.'He sounded annoyed.
'What about it?'I asked patiently
'We arent sure if she wants us down there.Can you ask her about it.'He knew she was right there.
'Sure,'I turned away from the hpone. 'Rose,do you want them down here?'
'Yeah,shes fine with that.'I talked back into the cell.
'Okay,thank you Isabella.'
'Can't you just call me Bella.'I knew his responce before he said it.
'No way.Its too much fun.Maybe you should call me Edward.'
'Nah,Eddie sounds much more modern.'I teased.
See ya Eddie.'I hung up the handset.Rose gave me strange look. as i handed her back the cell.
'Its just that you get along so well with him..'
'Rose,what are you on?'I demanded.I did not gte along well with her half wit brother.
'He's alot nicer to you then he was to my other friends.'She muttered unwillingly.
'Yeah sure.'I said.She smiled as the bell rang.She got up and walked beside me.She was in the year above me..She stopped before me.
'I'll see you after class.'She called as i kept walking.I smiled to myself as people turned to look at me.Thye didnt understand how someone like Rosalie had become friends with someone like me.I sat in class by myself and waited for the bell to go.
I looked up to see Mike Newton smiling at me.I didnt smile back.It was common knowlege that he liked me,but i ddint want to lead him on.His smile faded ad he walked away.
'Hanging out with that Hale kid has made her a snob.'he murmured to one of his friends.I rolled my eyes and ignored the comment.Rosalie was at the door,gesturing to me with mad intenssity.I collected my things and sprinted out the door.
'What is it Rose?'I asked wariy.She was wringing her hands.
'We need to go pick up Jasper.My family area waiting at the airport!'She sqeaked.I ahd never heard her so agitated.I walked up to Jaspers class and let myself in.The teacher looked up.
'I need Jasper Hale.'I said breathlessly.Jasper look at me in alarm,then got up.
'Sit down Mr Hale.'The teacher snapped.
'Sir,it's family reasons!'I nearly shouted.Jasper grabbed his bag and followed me out of the class.
'What's up?'Jasper asked and we walked across campus.
'We have to go pick up your family from the airport?'I said,looking for Rosalie.She was standing beside her M13 with an anxious look.Jasper hopped into the front passenger seat and i got into the back.Rosalie looked at me from the rear vision mirror as she drove.
'Change of plans.Jazz is going to pick up my family,and we'll wait at home.'
'Are you sure you want me there Rose?'I asked quietly.
'Yes.'She said.Jasper turned and smiled at me.That was odd,he never smiled at me at all.Jasper dropped us off at the hopuse and drove off.The house was beautiful,and hidden in the forest.I was here more than i wa sat home.I stayed here alot,having slumber parties with Rose.She mostly did it to give me a break from my dad and his girlfriend,Sue.Sue had two kids of her own.I didnt like the girl,Leah,and i hadnt actually met the other one,Seth.Thier father had died a few years back from a bear attack of some sort.
'How long until they get here?'I asked after half an hour of waiting.Rosalie looked at me from her pacing.A car pulled in.
'They're here!'She shreiked.She stopped pacing and sat down with me on the couch.I rolled my eyes and looked at the door.
'Rose!'Someone roared.A guy with dark,curly hair walked through the door.Rosalie jumped up and ran to him.He kissed her breifly,then turned to grin at me.
'So your Isabella Swan?'
'Bella.'I corrected,smiling at him.He nodded and then looked around the house.Then Jasper walked in with a pixie at his side.Wait,not a pixie,another girl.She just looked like a pixie.She was short with short,jagged hair pointing in all directions.She smiled at me.
'Hello Bella.'She said softly.She walked forward and hugged me gently.I hugged her back,surprised.Rosalie gave a strangled cry and came to stand with me,putting a hand on the smallk of my nack in a clearly protective way.
Three more people entered and shut the door behind them.I was watching Rose's face
'Bella,this is my family.Thats Emmett,'she pointd to the guy she kissed. 'Alice.'The pixie.
Her voice fell short and cut off.
'I'm Esme and this is Carlisle.'A womam with caramel coloured hair said,smiling.the ma with his amr around her smile warmly.
'Oh,and this is my other brother.'She added desperately.
And then he stepped forward.My mouth fell open.Because,with his flawless skin and tousled hair,he was hott.Whenever i had pictured Rosalie's brother,i had seen a nerd,someone ugly.But he wasnt.
Edward Cullen was actually really Hot!
