It all began in the Summer of 2008. I went to this riverside place, with my famliy and some old family friends. They have a 17 year old daughter. We talk and occasionally get along, but I don't think she likes me and I don't really "care for" her. Anyway, she asked me what my favorite book(s) was and I immediatley, without once hesitating replied, "The Harry Potter Series." I thought it ruled. I thought it was awesome. I was an obsessed Potter Fan. But then when I asked her what her favorite book(s) she said "The Twilight Saga." Then she started to chatter on and on about the resent release of Breaking Dawn
by Stephenie Meyer and the upcoming movie. She thought I was too young to read the books but she told my sister that she may enjoy it. Whatever. I hate it when older people treat me like a baby. I want to be an equal and she doesn't see me like that so why should I care what she thinks. And at that moment I knew I hated the Twilight Saga just because she liked it. We went to several other places on vacation that summer and she still yapped about "The Twilight Saga." God, I got so annoyed at her I would push her
of a cliff! Then it was September and school was starting. One day, i saw my sister reading it. The Twilight Saga. And at that moment (again) I knew without a doubt that no matter how good people said it was and no matter how many people read it, I
wouldn't even breath on it!
It was the middle of November and me and my BFF, Stuti, were walking from school to the bus stop. She was chattering about Twilight too. Great. Just another person to add to my growing list of stupid obsessed fans. But this time there was a difference. Stuti actually made the book sound appealing. So I asked her if I could borrow it from her. She wasn't sure since it wasn't hers, it was the school library's, but finally she gave in. She said maybe she'd be able to get to her homework if I took it from her hands. Wow, that must've taken a lot of strength Stuti. I only found out how much until afterwards. See when I started to read Twilight that night, I couldn't put it down. I was addicted. So the next day when I had to give it back to her, I was a bit reluctant to do so. But I kept thinking about what a good friend she was to lend it to me in the first place, even before she had finished reading it! So I had the courage and motivation within me from that simple little fact. We started a new system that week. Sometimes I would get to take it home and she would get it in school and sometimes she would take it home and I would get it in school. We did this for several days until I finally fiished reading it. (four days- Tuesady- Friday). That was some accomplishment considering the amount of homework we get each day (2-4 hours)! I always do all of my homework so not completeing it wasn't even an option! After that i wanted to read new Moon so badly. But there was a long waiting list for it in all libraries everywhere and my parents firmly refused to buy me the Twilight Saga because they thought that I shouldn't even be reading it in the first place.
__There is more but I've G2G so I'll put the rest of the story on later. This is not even half of it!----
