This is rewrite of my only successful story. XD
I began writing Black Swan on August 28th in 2010.
I know there were TONS of mistakes the first time around, and I have a feeling I could make it better now. Before I was just blindly stumbling into writing, but now I really think I could make it better. I know I had a bunch of people that read it the first time and I hope to have just as many this time, if not more. (does this sound too hopeful?)
(No I did not take the title from the ballet movie, nor does have ballet in it. I was phsyched when I found out there was a movie coming out with the same name as my FanFiction. XD)
BANNERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!
(Like the banner? It was made by the wonderful Minnie!)
I looked into his eyes and saw only pain. How could I have been so stupid? This was everything I had ever wanted, everything I had dreamed of. He was the image of sheer perfection in my eyes. But this was entirely my fault, and now I was paying for it.
“I’m so sorry, please, you have to believe me.” I looked into his eye, mine pleading.
“I want to, I really want to, But I don’t think I can.” His tore away from mine as he turned around. I felt tears spill over the ridges of my eyes as I watched him walk away. I sank against the wall and watched him until he became too small and too blurry for me to see anymore. I closed my eyes and pulled my knees tightly to my chest as I fell; fell into the black desperation and self-pity that were now closing over me.
PS: I greatly enjoy feedback.

I pushed Edward away from me and wiped at my mouth, the entirety of what just happened crashing down on me. I opened the fridge and tried to get my hands to stop shaking.
"Hey Dad, I’m in here." I said and hoped Edward would play along.
"Hey Bells." he paused and glanced somewhere behind me, I guessed it was Edward. "Hello Edward"
I heard Edward clear his throat, "Hi Chief Swan." He said in a low voice.
"I didn’t know you were having company over Bella, you should have told me. "
Yeah, I didn’t know either . . . "I know Dad I’m sorry."
I rubbed the bump that was forming on the back of my head, "Want something to drink Dad?"
"Just hand me a Vitamin R," He gruffed. I tossed him one and he left the room; going into the living room, with in hearing range. I tossed Edward a can of Coke, and got some water for me.
"Sorry," I whispered and took a sip.
"It’s ok." he whispered back.
I was rubbing the continually growing bump on my head when his soda exploded.
"Nice." I said rushing up to the sink for a rag. "Don’t you know never to open a tossed can of coke? It explodes." I waved my hand over the now sticky table, "Exhibit A"
I smiled and he laughed. He came up behind me and took the rag from me, beginning to clean up his mess. Once he was done I rinsed it off and hung it over the faucet.
We sat back down and listened to Charlie breathing, I knew he was listening to us. Getting Edward another soda, I carefully handed it to him this time. Our fingers brushed and the only thing I wanted to do was take his hand in mine and hold it, but I let him take his soda and sat back down again.
"Does your head hurt?" he whispered, noticing that I had been rubbing it.
"Yeah a little bit." I told my water. The next thing I knew his hand was on the back of my head, feeling the bump. I automatically wanted to lean my head back into his hand, but I didn’t.
I covered his hand with mine and pulled it from my hair, setting it on the table. I felt bad, I was shooting him down again, after I had encouraged him, I just shot him another bullet. I was beginning to think he would give up soon if I didn’t stop acting like a fool around him.
"I should be going." he said abruptly standing from his chair across the table.
"Yeah, I guess you should."
"Okay, well, um . . . bye." He said and then he was leaving.
“’Night Chief Swan," and then the door closed and he was gone.
I went up the stairs and locked myself in my room. I was going insane, I had to be. You can’t be this infatuated with someone in only 4 days! It hasn’t even been a week and you’re kissing him?!
Putting my pj’s on I went to bed early. I ignored Charlie when he asked me if I was coming down for dinner. I wanted to fall asleep and forget about everything, even if it was only for a little while.
"Kiss me, out on the bearded barley, nightly beside the gree-" I slammed my hand down on the alarm clock. That was NOT the song I needed to wake up to.
I left the lovely warm and safe sheets, and walked into the dreadfully cold tiled bathroom. Again, I had forgotten to take off my make up the night before. I looked like some deranged raccoon.
I got in the shower and let the water run over me until it was cold. Getting out I used my face wash and got the rest of my makeup off. My hair was wet. It would go to school wet, because I honestly didn’t care anymore.
I had to stop myself from whatever was going on. I shouldn’t have kissed him; I should have never encouraged him. Heading out of the bathroom, I grabbed a pair jeans and t-shirt from my closet. I threw on socks and my high top converse, and grabbed my hoodie and backpack I went out the door.
When I got to the school I went straight to class, avoiding everyone I could. When the lunch bell rang I took refuge in the library, I sat there and contemplated what to do next block. I jumped when the bell rang and ditched.
There was no way I was sitting through a whole hour and a half with him. Not yet. I went home and slept for a few hours. I refused Charlie for dinner when he came to get me.
"Bella, you need come down here and eat"
"Dad I’m really tired, I’ll eat a big breakfast in the morning, okay?"
"Fine, just make sure you do." Charlie grumbled as he left my door.
That was easier than I thought it would be. I relaxed a little and then let sleep over take me.
"WHOA! I never meant to brag! But I’ve got him where I want him now" I smiled as I woke up. Paramore is the best thing to wake up to. Turning the volume down on my alarm clock I let the song finish. As soon as it was over I got up and began my morning rituals. Again, the only thing I could think about was avoiding him; by the time I got to school I was a nervous wreck. I pulled in, got out of my car and made a bee line for my first block.
"You can’t avoid me forever you know."
My heart sped at the sound of his voice. I kept walking. I was almost to the front doors when he grabbed my elbow and tried to get me to face him.
"Bella," his voice was soft. I took a deep breath and turned towards him. "Please tell how to fix this."
I opened my mouth and then closed it. I wanted to step into his arms, to erase that look on his face and hold him until it never comes back. But of course I couldn’t do that.
"You didn’t do anything wrong," I told his shoes. "It was me, I’m sorry, I did something wrong."
"Wha- not to me, you didn’t do anything wrong to me. Tell me and I’ll fix it," he stepped closer, and then closer. I took a step back and then ran for the sanctuary of my first block.
