hey everyone, im new to the whole fanfic thing and this is the first fanfic i have ever writen so please be gentle with the critisisim, i would also like to thank Ashley Peterkin for taking the time to edit my story it is much apreciated.
Just so you know im from Australia so my spelling may be different and my editer Ashley is from Canada so between us the spelling will be both American and Australian, but both are correct depending on where you come from. Anyways here is my story and i really hope you enjoy it.
Everyone says that being different is a good thing, and right in the centre of everyone is my family, they’re always trying to reassure me that my being different is what makes me special, but what if I don’t want to special? What if all I want is to fit in, to be a full vampire like the rest of my family? Sometimes I wonder if my family really knows what I’m going through, it’s not like there are many of my kind out there. Vampires on the other hand, well, they’re almost as common as humans, who seem to be oddly unaware at most times as to what’s happening around them, well that’s what my father says, yeah my dad Edward, he was probably listening to my thoughts right now. Who knew having a mind reader for a father could be such a pain in the butt!!!
“Renesmee!” I guess he heard me. “Yeah?” I called from my room on the second floor, he would hear me, that’s one of the good things about being in a family of vampires, you never had to strain your voice. They all had excellent hearing; even me; being the half breed, I still had great hearing.
“Yeah?” I called again when I hadn’t gotten an answer.
Then there was a different voice that answered, it was my Aunt Rose. “Nessie, you’ll be late for your first day of high school if you don’t hurry!” Stated Aunt Rose. I sighed. I had almost forgotten that today was my first day of high school. Then, it was Aunt Alice’s turn “Nessie, come on if you don’t hurry, I’ll have no time to do anything with your hair and make-up” she said sounding annoyed.
“I’m coming!” I almost screamed. “Yeesh, you’d think that my looks were the most important thing about today” I whined walking into Alice’s room, where she and Rose were waiting with smiles the size of the pacific ocean, on their faces.
“I mean, not that it’s not important to look good.” I added quickly as Alice frowned.
Truth be told, there were more important things on my mind, like what if they didn’t like me, or I didn’t make any friends, or I did something to embarrass myself. Suddenly I was pulled from the horror of my thoughts by Alice, telling me to put on an arrangement of cloths she’d pulled from her closet, which I thought looked big enough to house the whole of china.
“Come on Ness, put them on and then Rose and I will fix your hair.” Alice urged.
I walked into Alice’s oversized bathroom and three seconds later, I was out in a pair of dark blue skinny jeans, a red tight fitting tank top, and matching red heels which were obviously Rose’s.
“What do you think?” I said while twirling to let them see the full effect of the outfit.
Alice squealed jumping up and down like an over excited toddler had been let loose in Toys ‘R’ Us. I smiled and went to look in the mirror. Okay, I had to admit, I did look good. The dark blue skinny jeans hugged my legs perfectly, as did the red tank top.
“You look great!” Alice and Rose said at exactly the same moment.
After throwing me the designer denim jacket that went perfectly with my ensemble, we headed downstairs.
When we arrived downstairs there was a stack of chocolate chip pancakes in the middle of the table and Jacob had already started to dig in. I sat in the chair next to him and piled three pancakes onto my plate before speaking.
“Hey Jake.” I said in between mouth full’s of my first pancake, while he was on his seventh.
“Hey Ness.” Jake said while leaning over and planting a kiss on my right cheek.
Jake and I have been together for as long as I can remember, he is my best friend and I am his. We were like two peas in a pod, as his father, Billy had pointed out to us once. When my family and I had moved to Washington, Jake had moved with us and was planning on registering to Washington High along with the rest of my family. I am glad that Jake is here, it’s going to be great. Jake and I, going to school together. At that exact moment my dad snorted. I looked over to him and smiled “Sorry dad.” I thought. “You know I love you.” I thought again, this time putting all the emotion I could into the thought and getting a questioning look from Jasper.
Before Jasper could ask, dad spoke saying” I love you too, Ness.”
Then Bella, my loving and beautiful mother, - dad smiled at me for that thought - came up beside him and spoke. “We all love you, Ness. We’re all going to be here for you if you need us, you won’t be alone at all.”
“I know.” I said, smiling and taking a big breath “Let’s do this.” I said.
“Yes, let’s.” Emmett said chuckling.
Ten minutes later, we were pulling into Washington High school. I’d just spent the entire trip listening to dad explain how we were all related, it went something like this. Alice Cullen, Emmett Cullen, Edward Cullen and I, Renesmee Cullen, were brothers and sisters who had been adopted by Carlisle and Esme. Rosalie Hale and Jasper Hale were twins who had been adopted also, and then there was Bella and Jacob Black who were cousins staying with Carlisle and Esme Cullen. It was all very confusing but I knew that my family would be here to help. I received a reassuring smile from Edward, who is now my big brother. Yep another smile so I must be doing alright.
After getting many stares from the other students, - most of mine were from the guys, which made Jacob wrap his arm firmly around my waist, - we finally arrived at the office, where we proceeded to explain to the lady behind the desk how we were all related.
“Hello, I’m Edward.” Dad said, with a polite smile towards the woman.
“These are my sisters, Alice and Renesmee Cullen, and my brother, Emmett Cullen.” “This is Rosalie and Jasper Hale, my adopted brother and sister.” Edward started again “And this is Bella and Jacob Black, who are cousins.” Everyone smiled and waved when Edward said their name, then we were handed our schedules. Rose and Emmett are sophomores, as well as Alice and Jazz. Bella and Edward are juniors, and Jacob and I were freshmen.
“What do you have before lunch, Ness” Jacob asked immediately after receiving his schedule.
“English.” I replied after scanning my schedule “Then history.”
“You?” I asked.
“English then gym.” He stated sounding grim.
“Well we have one class together this morning.” I replied cheerfully.
“Yeah.” Jacob mumbled “Better than none, I guess.”
Bella, Alice and Rose all hugged and wished me luck with my first day. Rose planted a kiss on my cheek. “Don’t worry Ness, everyone will love you,” Rose whispered, though everyone could hear. I sighed “Bye all.” I said before turning to Jake. “Come on lets go to English.” I said, motioning for him to start walking.
“Don’t worry Ness.” Jake said, squeezing my hand as we walked into English.
“Hello, you must be Jacob Black and Renesmee Cullen?” The teacher asked politely.
“Yes.” We answered.
“It’s nice to meet you.” The teacher, whose name was Mr. Smith replied.
He pointed to two empty seats at the back of the class, Jake started pulling me towards them.
Most of the class was staring at me, and I pulled myself closer to Jake as he wrapped his arm protectively around me.
After Jake and I were seated, Mr. Smith proceeded in telling the class that we would be starting the year off by reading “Gone with the Wind,” something I had read three times already.
English passed in a blur, then Jake was off to Gym and I, in the opposite direction to endure history alone. My own personal hell, where everyone was going to stare, and this time my family wasn’t going to be there to help.
Upon walking into my history class, I was greeted in much the same way, by the teacher Ms Paige. There were only three seats available in this class. One by a tall gangly boy with short brown hair, and the other two were over on the other side of the class. I decided to take one of the seats on the other side of the room, so that I could have the table to myself.
When I finally reached the table, I seated myself in the seat that was closest to the wall, and began to rummage through my bag for my book, when I smelt it. I knew that smell, it was sweet and delicious, almost mouth watering, but that wasn’t right, none of my family were in my history class. Maybe they stopped by to give me something, but that doesn’t make sense. They could have given it to me this morning. Thoroughly confused now, I lifted my head to the scent to see which one of my family members it was, only to realize, with a sharp jolt to my stomach that the person making their way over to me was not from my family, but was indeed a vampire.
