Preface:Love is complicated, but worth the trouble
Chapter 1 Why? (Gabby POV)
Spring break sucked. It was the worst two weeks of my life. My boyfriend cheated on me. I HATE HIM! Now, it's back to school with that loser. At least I have Ash and Jack to comfort me. well, time to get ready. I went to my bathroom to decide how to fix this mess I call my hair. Straightner it is. I went to get changed, I grabbed a pair of jeans and a tee. I put on my fave Louboutins and the necklace I've had since Ash and I ran away. Our parents were.... let's just say they were bad people. I ran downstairs to eat breakfast, but Ash said we were goona be late so I grabbed a banana. (Ashey n Gabby Outfits http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=29823584&.msg=BQcCAAAAAQQDAA... )
"Are we picking Jack up today?" I asked peeling my banana
"Yeah, and if you would have stop grieving over Drew you could have had breakfast." she replied
"Hey since Jack is your first REAL love. you wouldn't understand." I shot back. Hah, got her mouth shut. We pulled up to Jack's house and I got out so he could sit in the front with Ashley.
"Why so quiet?" he questioned, usually me and Ash have the radio full blast belting out a random song.
"Gabby's sulking over Drew." Ashley answered
Jack twisted around to talk to me, "Do I need my shovel?"
"No, but thanks." I laughed
"Why do you have a shovel?" Ashley asked trying to look serious
"Just cause.... NEW SUBJECT!" he laughed. Within five minutes we pulled into the parking lot.
"You gonna be okay?" Ashley asked as I walked towards the school.
"I'll be fine." I said as I walked into homeroom just before the bell. Isat waaaayyy in the back and some guy sat next to me.
"Hey." he said
"Hi, do I know you?" I asked, he looked familiar.
"You might've seen me around town, but I just transferred from the Valley. Too much drama there." he sighed
"Hah, you're telling me." I replied. It was quiet after that so I spoke up again, "What classes do you have?" I wonder if we'll see each other.He handed me his schedule. "We have every class together, except 7th period. I have music, you have Spanish." I might like this.
"Cool, so I guess you could show me around. Maybe we could take a tour during lunch?" he asked hopefully.
"Sure, by the way I'm Gabby." I answered
"Seth." he said as the bell rang. The first three periods flew by. The bell rang after English, so Seth and I walked to the cafeteria.
"And this is our cafeteria. Let's grab some lunch." I said walking to the line. We looked for a place to sit when I spotted the perfect place. We sat at a table right beside Drew's. When Ashley and Jack walked in I called them over.
"Hey Gabby, who's this?" she motioned to Seth
"This is, Seth. He's new so I'm just helping out." she smiled at me because she and I knew, Seth= uber cute!
"Nice to meet you. This is my boyfriend, Jack." she introduced them. They exchanged a 'Hey'.
"So, Seth, you play any sports?" Jack asked.
"Yeah, I wanna get into football." Seth replied
"Hey, I'm captain. I'll talk to coach about getting you to try-out." Jack offered.
"Really? Thanks man!" Seth smiled
"No prob." Jack looked happy.
"So, should we start my tour?" Seth stood up.
"Sure." I got up and we went outside."That building is the gym, and that's the lockers." I pointed. "And that's about it. Any questions?"
"Just one." he replied
"Shoot." I said
"What are the odds," Oh great, math. "of me taking you to a bonfire on the beach tonght?" he flashed his brilliant smile.
"I think the odds are in your favor." I laughed, " Pick me up at five. Here." I wrote my number on a paper. "I'll text you my address."
"Great." he opened the door to our Math class as the bell rang. Oh man! I have Drew in this class.
"Are you new?" Mrs. Miller asked Seth.
"Yeah, he is. I've been showing him around. So I'll have him sit next to me." I interuppted
"Okay." she waved us away. I took my seat and motioned for him to sit next to me. As soon as Drew walked in he saw us. He started to walk over to us.... Wonderful.
Chapter 4 New Life? (Gabby's POV)
"Ok, yes, but calm down." I tried to stop her from making a mistake.
"When I'm done with them.." she trailed off.
"Hey, no more fights this trimester if you wanna graduate, member?" I asked.
"Whatever, I won't do anything,I promise." she sounded sad. "I'll pick you up after school." she said getting up.
"No, stay, come with me and Seth after school, please?" I plead.
"Fine, but I'm not going to any class." she disagreed. How in the world will she do that?
"K, bye." I said walking back to class. I silently slipped in as we were starting to read about the Civil War.
"Ok class, today we'll be talking about one of the youngest generals in the Confederate Army. His name was, Major Jasper Whitlock." said Mr. Fuller. As soon as Seth heard that name, he almost bursted out laughing.
"What did I miss?" I asked.
"You'll learn later today." he said between giggles. I sat with a confused look on my face for about thirty seconds, then decided, I'm better off knowing later. The day passed by too quick. I was in music and it barely felt like lunch! Oh well, more time with Seth later I guess. We were just about to start playing when the fire alarm went off. Everyone ran outside the school and wait to see the flames, but nothing happened.
"Alright, who did this?" the principal stood in front of everyone. "If no one tells me there will be consequences for ALL of you." she stressed the 'all'.
"I did it." said a boy with dark hair that covered his eyes.
"Thank you, now everyone else go inside, grab your stuff, and go home." she said pulling the boy who pulled the alarm into the school. I ran to music, picked up my backpack, and ran out the door. As soon as I reached the parking lot, I looked for Seth. I couldn't find him. Suddenly, some one grabbed me from behind. I twisted around to see Seth's smiling face.
"Hey there." he said.
"Hey, so are we going or what?" I asked.
"Yeah, but isn't your cousin coming?" he nodded in Ash's direction. She was carrying the puppy.
"Yeah, where's Jake? I thought he and Ash were gonna ride together." I looked around.
"Here he comes." Seth said.
"Dude, we gotta hurry. Once the principal finds out William didn't pull the alarm Embry and I are dead." he said trying to hide behind Seth.
"Wait you did that?" Ash finally spoke up. Jacob looked at her to respond, but he just kept on staring at her. It was starting to get freaky. Then, Seth whacked his head.
"Uh, yeah, so you must be Ashley." Jake walked over to her, "Where did you get the puppy?!" he exclaimed.
"I found her on the street -here you drive- this morning on my way to school." she said handing Jake the keys. Wow she NEVER EVER let's anyone drive her car besides me.
"Shall we?" Seth opened the door to the car. We drove a long way to Forks. Then we drove almost out of that town down a winding path in the woods. Finally, we arrived at a HUGE house. I don't even think house fits this, more like mansion. It was beautiful. Coming out of the house was a guy who looked like that guy we learned about in History.
"Seth is that.." I said looking at the man.
"I'll explain. Now yu remember how me and the guys are wolves, well, this family is vampires." he finished looking at me.
