Chapter 1: Take Off
There are moments that come where you can't find the words, where you don't know how to react. Your body is numb with fear and heartbreak. Your mind can't process the actions that have taken place. Your compleatly distraut and in compleate deniel. Guilt pours through you and 'what if' questions fog your thoughts. You, for once in your life know what it's like to be compleatly alone. It's not a good feeling either, you just feel like their's no reason to go on. But there is, you find a cause a hope to keep you pushing though even though you know it will be hard. And pushing through is exactly what you need to do. I'm in those moments right now. The line of reality and dreams is blurred to the point of confusion. The truth is I still am numb and hope to remain so. I don't want to feel the pain I can't right now, I don't want to try and visualize life with out him, with out all of him by my side. The doctors say that i'm shock and that i'll escape it soon but like I said I don't want to. I know pain awaits me the moment I start to process thoughts again and I don't want that. Everyone has sympathy, and sorrow for me but I don't want it. If I could only go back and change it so that none of it happend, I only wish I could.
I came out of my daze with Mr. Henson talking to us on the megaphone. I sighed and looked out the airplane window. The plane would take off any moment but I wish it would happen faster so I didnt have a chance to change my mind for the 30th time. I was given a full paied chance to go on this trip right before he passed. He told me I was stupid if I passed up a chance like this. I told him Id think about it. The day after he died I accepted. I knew he would want me to do it. I sighed trying to get my mind off of the subject. Someone took the seat next to me. I looked up at him. Edward Cullen.
"Bella right?" He asked me. I nodded and looked back out the window. I was mentally preparing myself for the 13 hour and 33 minute flight of pure time alone with my thoughts. I honestly scared me. I was never used to that much time alone with my thoughts. I took a deep breath as the pilot briefed us for the flight. I shut the window and tryed to get confertable in my first class seat.
"Are you excited to go around the world." A velvty voice asked. I looked over to him and lookeded into his emrold green eyes. I chuckled and looked away from him. He chuckled as well and started to twidle his fingers nervosly. I looked back at him and waited untill her retunred my gaze.
"Yes im exicted." I told him and looked away once more. A small pixie head poped up next to Edward. I reconized her from school. Alice Cullen the entergeic adopted daughter of the Cullen family. The Cullen family, the biggest known family in the world. They owned the biggest buisness in the whole world and have been in the press constantally. I'm sure Edward and Alice will be reconized.
"Your Bella Swan right?" Alice asked. Edward looked at her and nodded."I've herd about you. Your like a genius right? Don't answer I've herd you were alreayd accepted to Harvard too. I wish I could get into harvard. Edward applied to Harvard i'm sure he'll get in. He's smart too. You guys should have intelligent talks with each other. What do you want to study at Harvard?" She just kept going.
"Hey Alice." I asked her. She stoped and looked at me with wide eyes."I guess you could call me a genius, I was accepted to Harvard, I will be attending, I think it's great that Edward's smart, If you want to go to Harvard you have to try very hard, might be too late though, Intelligent talks are just normal conversations, and I want to study medicine." Both her and Edward stared at me for a second."Now if you excuse me I want to sleep."
"Belly bear." A famliar voice called. I shrunk in my seat. Only one person called me that and then he appeard. Emmett stood aboce Alice and smiled at me. I looked at him and tryed to crack a faint smile. It had been only a few months since we broke up. What was he even doing here. I looked at Edward and he stared at Emmett curisoly. Im's sure he reconized him. Emmett attended Forks Private last year when he was a senior. He lead the school to their first champion ship.
"Hey your Emmett McCarty, head quarterback. What are you doing here?" Edward asked. Emmett didn't take his eyes off of me but contined to answer Edward's question. He was here because he was asked to chaperone and just had to accept. This trip just became very complacated.
I had been avoiding Bella the last few weeks hoping she would just start to get an idea but she instead on talking to me. We were going to the beach again today the more time we spent here the less there was to do here and there was still 2 months left to spend in this country. Bella was sitting at the kitchen table going threw some of the letter her father had left for her. I sat across from her and watched her, she looked up at me and raised an eyebrow. She scoffed at me lightly.
"So what now your talking to me again. I thought your mission in life was to avoid me since that conversation." She looked back at her letter. I guess my attempts of removing her from my life were a little too obvious. I was just tired of ignoring her. Every time I tried to push away something pulled me back to her and maybe it was because she was like Rosalie. Maybe I was still to hung up on her so I found someone similar to her. But something inside me kept telling me that Bella was nothing like Rose. Bella had a heart. Bella had some serious damage to her, she was much stronger.
"I'm sorry." I said. She didn't look up but kept sorting through the letters. "Did you hear me?" She sighed.
"Oh my gosh is Edward Cullen apologizing for being a jerk. OMG what a surprise." She said sarcasm on her every word. "You know if you didn't want to be friends you could have just told me instead of telling me you were falling for me and then ignoring me." She got up from her chair and headed for her room I promptly followed her. She searched her bag.
"I didn't want to hurt you. You deserve better." I told her. She looked up at me and walked over to me. She stared to chuckle. She shook her head and placed a hand on my shoulder. A spark rushed though my body at her touch.
"You could have at least given me a chance and judge you by my self. And your right I do deserve better but you didn't even give your self a chance Edward. I'm willing to give you one but I want to learn more about you not just the person you show the world. The Edward you were before, everything that ruined you. I'm willing to give that Edward a chance." She said. I looked down and then back up at her. I reached for her face but she pulled away and shook her head. "Let's just start over okay?" I nodded. She stuck her hand out at me and smiled. "Hi I'm Bella Swan." I smiled.
"Edward Cullen." I said.
I wasn't so sure about the fresh started with Edward but something so desperately wanted me to take a chance with him. I felt as if I could help him. "Apples or bananas?" Edward grabbed the banana and took a bite. I scrunched up my face.
"What you don't like bananas? Whats wrong with you?" He laughed. I shook my head and grabbed the apple. "Twilight or the vampire diaries." I gave him a strange look before laughing. He joined along. He was aware that Alice and I watched the Vampire Diaries every Thursday but was also aware that we already planned on going to see Breaking Dawn. "And you can't choose both. I'd go with Twilight they have our names." I laughed and thought for a second.
"Well I do think it's quite cool that they have our names but Damon's so sexy and as he says Edwards whipped." I said."Like you are when you watch when something with Jessica Alba in it." He gave me a glare. "Football or monster trucks?" He smiled and finished his banana. He threw the banana into the trash can and mumbled football. Edward and I had spent hours just talking. At the beach they talked and now here they talked. I had never had such in depth simple conversations with someone. There was a knock at the door. I slid off a he counter and went to the door. I pulled it open and saw a tall blond girl. She was stunning. I gave a small confused look. Edward came behind me and stoped.
"Rosalie." He whispered. I turned at Edward who's face was full of pain. I pushed him away from the door and he stumbled onto the couch. Well this put a damper on things.
sorry the chapter was kinda bland but I needed something some-what interesting before Rose came into the picture. My fav part is probably the TVD and T-light. I was asked that a couple days ago and I really couldn't decide:) I was also asked why I finish everything I say with AlRob. My dad calls me his little AlRob because its the first few later of each my names. I've always been called that so it im just used to it, hope that answer it for ya. hope you enjoyed the cahpter and if you want to see anything happend just shoot me some ideas:)
