I woke up the next morning with a mission: stay away from anyone I didn't know at school. Just family or wolf pack. That's it. I changed into black skinny jeans and a white T-shirt (which was off the shoulder, of course) and my Converse. I had to be on the DL for now. I jumped off the rail of the stairs and landed on my feet. I ran a hand through my hair and looked in the mirror. My eyes were their rich chocolate-y brown, as usual. The color made my eyes look bigger, which my long lashes contributed to just as much. I turned and Rose was behind me, in a flowery dress that made her look like an angel in the spring. I smiled and she returned mine with an uneven smile. "What's wrong?" I asked her. She shook her head and said, "The last member of the Brexters' clan is going to Forks High now." I asked nervously, "Then can't you just get rid of him today?" She shook her head and said, "Way too many wittnesses. Carslisle is completely against it, anyway. And you know Esme is, too." I nodded and shuddered, thinking of Chase's sharp teeth, aimed for my neck...he was inches away from killing me. But... it didn't make any sense... "Wait, I'm supposed to smell like a vampire, so why do I smell good to him?" She grimaced and Carslisle appeared with Edward. Carslisle said, "Your, er, choice of friends gave off a scent of their own. And vampire and werewolf scent combined creates a human scent." Edward said, "I don't enjoy the thought of you going to school with him so near, Renesmee. Do you think-" I cut him off by saying more to myself, "So that's why Jake said that we should only be friends...." I looked up at Edward and said, hurt, "You didn't!" It made perfect sense. Of course Edward would tell Jake to break up with me. So I wouldn't have such a strong human scent. And Noel gave me that crystal heart so Chase would find me. Even with the wolf pack around. Alice danced down the stairs and grinned at me. "Good morning, Renesmee." I waved, and felt like I would crumble. I said, "We should get to school soon. I'll go get the others." ********************** It was in fifth period that I felt a stare creeping its way up my back. I gasped and turned. A guy with a white shirt and black jeans on was staring at the board ahead of us. He had dark brown hair and deep blue eyes I felt I could fall into. My brain was telling my body to turn back around so he wouldn't see me staring. But my body didn't listen. I looked deeper at his perfect face. Creepy how right he looked. I rested my head on my arms and kept staring at him like a child would a toy they had to have. After a few minutes, he slowly turned to meet my gaze, a smile neatly in place on his beautiful face. My jaw must have hit the floor when he looked into my eyes. They were so stunning, I couldn't look away. I saw a waterfall scene jumping from his eyes into my mind. Then a few flames of rage at something he couldn't control. Woah! How did he do that? It was like my power reflecting off of me onto him, like a projector. My mind screamed Jake's name, but I couldn't turn to even glance at Jake. This creature was so interesting. I could hear my name being repeated over and over. Who was calling my name? "Miss Cullen? Would you mind turning back around?" He leaned forward in his chair so that my face was inches from his. Like the way a kissing scene looks in the movies. He whispered, "Um, I think Mr. Bates is calling you." His breath was intoxicating. I closed my eyes and enjoyed the air he pushed toward me with his voice. Then I blinked and gasped. I was in a classroom? I realized I had turned completely around in my chair to face him. I bit a nail and wondered who that was. ***** I walked out of the classroom and toward my locker. A cool hand touched my bare shoulder. I turned and looked up into gorgeous blue eyes. The guy! He said, "Um, it's Renesmee Cullen, right?" I said, "Call me Nessie." I only said this because I wanted to hear him call me what I only let the wolves and my family call me- everyone at Forks High called me by my full name. He chuckled and said, "I won't keep you, but I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Jesse Darell." I said, "Nice to meet you, Jesse." He nodded and was about to say something, but Jake interrupted with a, "Hey, Ness." I didn't look at him, though. It was like I didn't know how to control my actions. I coudn't turn from his eyes. Until he gave me a last smile and said so low I almost didn't hear him, "I'll see you, Nessie Carlie Cullen." My eyes had to adjust to the darkness without his bright eyes in my vision. I gasped as if ice had been shot through my veins. Jake's warm grip sent fire to make the ice melt in its tracks. Edward and Bella were suddenly beside me. I realized Jake had dragged me to the hallway. Edward shook me and I shivered. When I looked at him, a tortured look crossed his face. He and Bella asked at the same time, "What happened?" I put a palm on each of their cheeks and showed them what Jesse's eyes had, and how it made me feel. Bella giggled and said, "Looks like you've got a little competition, Jacob." He grunted and said, "I hate competiton. You remember who won last time." Edward laughed and looked into space. I wrapped my arms around Jake's hot neck, finally in control of my actions, and whispered, "There's no competition, trust me." Then I kissed him and caught his hand so we could go to our next class. ********************************When I was trying to sleep that night, I rememberd I'd never told Jesse my middle name. I fell asleep to the color of his eyes and the smell of his breath still fresh in my mind.
