Title: The Life of a Twilight Fanatic
Reading these books.. changed how I look at life. Changed everything I've thought before I read them. All I think, or dream or talk of, is this beautiful book.. that my favorite author, Stephenie Meyer made. She made my fantasy world come alive.
I've lived in this town, since I was fifteen years old. I live with my mother in New York City. My dad, Alexander, lives in California. I use to live with my dad when I was eight but, I didn't want to stay there. He was always so bossy. I am seventeen years old now. I'm sitting on my bed, with the door closed, the light off, and the window slightly open; just staring off into space. Thinking of anything that comes to mind. I look around my room; its mostly posters, the stuff that I like. Like, 'Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner' and all other Twilight posters. I looked towards my desk; seeing something that catches my eye, and walk over to it. I pick it up and walk over to my bed and sit. I open my book 'Twilight'; skipping the preface, and heading towards 'Chapter 1: First Sight'. I read page 18, where Bella first see's the Cullens. I've always dream of meeting someone; not like a vampire. But, a regular guy. Someone who is human, normal, and a good friend. I started thinking. 'Someone like Jacob Black'. Yes, Jacob would be prefect for my liking. But, Edward holds this passion that girls like me, would want. He's overprotective; I like that. He is a true gentlemen, someone you could go to when your sad or any other reason. But, thats only in Twilight. That miracle would only happen in Twilight. I sighed and closed the book, lying it on my bed. I walked out of my room, to the kitchen for something to eat.
"Sophie, what would you like to eat?" my mother asked. I stared at her, bored-looking.
"Oh, just looking mom." I opened up the fridge to see what's inside; milk, eggs, apples, apple juice. Nothing holds my attention. I closed the fridge and walked into my room; closing the door.
"Honey, dont you want something?" my mom walked into my room; holding the door open. I turned around to face my mom.
"No, mom. I just--" I looked around my room, towards my bed. "Reading Twilight at the moment." I picked up the book staring at the cover. Arms holding the apple.
"Okay Sophie. If you want something just say it." she closed the door before I could respond. I sat on my bed, and opened Twilight. Before I started reading, I stared at the clock 5:47. I started to read; then hours later I yawned. I stared at the clock 8:53. I've been reading for hours. This book is so addicting! I changed into sweat pants and a white T-shirt; with my hair in a ponytail. I lied on my bed, thinking...
'What if Edward were here... holding me tight. Singing Bella's lullaby. That would make me fall asleep. Or what if.. we went to the Cullens home and I talked to Alice for hours of fashion. Or, told Rosalie how much she means to me. Rosalie isnt bad, just has judgments against what Bella wants out of her life. I love you, Edward. I love you, Jacob. Wolf pack, Cullens, Bella, everyone....' I drifted off to sleep.
My dream of course, was of Twilight. I'm lying in the meadow with Edward staring at me, amazed. I look at him, then at my clothes. I'm wearing a light blue jacket, with a light blue shirt, and dark jeans, and vans. What the-- I was sleeping in my pajamas. What the hell is going on? I stare at Edward, and he is leaning in to kiss me. I didnt know what to do. I couldn't speak. So, I just stared at him, shocked. His lips barely tapped mine, and I woke.
I jumped out of my sleep, sitting up right; and gasped. I stared around my room. Looking near my pillow, was the Twilight book. I rubbed the cover, and tapped it.. like a baby. I always treat my books like their my children. Their so precious to me. I rubbed my eyes, and shook my head thinking, 'That dream was amazing! Why the hell did I have to wait up for?' I look around, thinking of why I woke. I stared at my side table, my alarm clock was ringing. I stopped it and got up. 'I hate you alarm clock, you messed up my dream!' I thought as I got dressed. I did my hair like I had it; ponytail. I brushed my teeth and washed my face. I went back into my room, going straight to Twilight. I picked it up; and started to read Chapter 3. Hours past; I looked at the clock, I have to leave. I hurried. Putting my jacket on, and my book bag on my back. I ran towards the door, closing and locking it behind me. I fast-walked to my car. 'If only Edward were here to drive me...' ran through my head. I sighed and got into my car. Putting my seat belt and fixing my mirror. I started the car and drove to my school. Not that far, but a lot of traffic. I drove down 10 blocks and saw my school. I parked in the parking lot, and got out my car: A Mercedes. 'Carlisle's car' I laughed at myself.
"Hi, Soph." I turned to see my friend Jennifer.
"Hi, Jen!" I waved at her; while she is walking towards me.
"So, what you do over your weekend?"
"I read Twilight, and had a wonderful dream! Wanna hear it?"
"Sure, go ahead." She smiled. She is the hugest Twilight friend I know. Jen and I know everything there is to know of Twilight.
"I was in the meadow with Edward, and I was wearing the clothes Bella had in the movie, and Edward leaned in to kiss me. I didnt know what to do. He almost kissed me, and I woke up!" Her eyes were by the time I said 'meadow'. She looked so shocked, she didnt even know how to reply. I was smiling and laughing at her reaction to my dream.
"Are you serious!?" she shouted. "Thats amazing! I would have leaned in and kissed him! Oh yeah!" she laughed, so did I. We walked to our class. Were in the same class. Our first class, my favorite class because the subject is in Twilight, where Edward and Bella met; Science class. We smiled as we both walked in. I sit in the front and so does she. We sit at different tables but near each other. The teacher Ms.Amy starts the class, while I pay attention. Were learning something Bella and Edward learned: Cell Division. 'This class is awesome!' I thought. I look around to see my friend Jen smiling very widely at me. I smiled back, and looked at the teacher. Class ended minutes later. Now, our next class.. Social Studies. I dont like this class that much; and from the look on Jen's; I could see, she didnt either. We both sighed and walked to our seats. We seat next to each other, so as I copied my work, the teacher started the lecture.
"Pst." Jen whispered. I stared over at her, she passed me a paper. I opened up the paper and read:
"OME! Your dream sounds amazing. I would have kissed him, forget being shocked. Lol. But, yeah. My dream was totally awesome! I got mad at something and turned into a werewolf. Then, I was running with Jacob. It was awesome! Then, it changed.. I was at the Cullens house. Talking of me.. being a vampire! Oh yeah!
XOXO Love Twilight. Sincerely, Jen Black Cullen <3"
I stared at her and giggled. Then replying:
"Wow! A werewolf then a Cullen... sweet. I love Twilight so much! I was reading it yesterday. Got to the chapter: Blood Typing. I love that chapter! Its amazing! I have the whole saga. You should come to my house, we could read it together. Can you come?"
I passed her the paper; when I knew the teacher wasnt looking. I suck at sneaking so, yeah. She read it; because she poked my back. I turned and she nodded, then whispered.
"Yes, I'm coming! We could read for hours!" she giggled. I giggled too.
"Ladies, what's that your all laughing about? Could you tell the class?" Mr. Adam said out loud. My cheeks got all red; for being caught talking in his boring class.
"Sorry Mr. Adam. We were talking of...nothing of your concern." Jen replied. Mr. Adam glared at her, then turned to continue his lesson. He is annoying, ugh! Jen shook her head at the teacher and placed our conversation on the paper in between pages of her binder.
'DING!' the bell rung. We both got up and walked to our math class. I truly dont like math, its so hard sometimes. Trying to learn it in class, and when we have a test... I'm like 'DUH!' about it. Class work is easy, tests or exams on the other hand, hard as hell. I sat in my seat; in the front but the last seat. Jen sits in my table, but the first seat. While Im like, 3 seats away from her. I took out my binder to read my cover: "New Moon 11.20.09 <333", 'Interesting' I thought. I giggled inside my head. Mrs. Michele started class. I copied what ever was on the board she wrote down. Class ended way faster then I would have thought. We have lunch. Jen grabbed my arm, and we both walked to lunch. We sat at our table, talking of Twilight. Our other friends that are in different classes came afterwards. We talked of different topics of Twilight; of course. I talked of my dream, everyone thought it was amazing. They said the same thing Jen said. 'I would have kissed him, forget shocked.' I laughed at that, when they spoke it. Then, school ended faster. After lunch, we went to Literacy, then Spanish, then from that to Chorus, then from that back to math. Then, school ended. I drove home, and Lilly gets in my car with me. She is official 'Team Jacob' fan. All she talks of is him. But, she says she's for both: Edward and Jacob. So, isnt she really: Team Ed-Cob. I laughed. She stared at me, from the corner of her eye; confused.
"Whats so funny?" she asked, confused. I stared at her, laughing still.
"You said, you like Edward and Jacob, right?"
"Aren't you Team Ed-Cob, then?" I started laughing, so did she.
"Yeah." she laughed more. "I guess I am." We talked of the whole time driving home of Edward and Jacob. I waved goodbye, when she got out my car, and walked up her porch. I drove to my house, and stopped my car. I looked at my house; and sighed.
"Hey! I thought we were going to read together, here!" I turned to see Jen running towards me. I walked to her.
"Did I leave you at school? Im sorry."
"No, my mom drove me home. I came waiting for you to come." We walked up into my house, and went into my room.
"Wow! I see you were reading it earlier today too." Jen said; as she picked up Twilight, and stared at me.
"Yeah, I love the book so much!" I smiled at her. She giggled.
"So do I, you know."
"I know, alright." She smiled, widely. We both went to sit on my bed. I told her where to open the book page too; and we began to read. I read one chapter she did the next. When we were finished, we got to when she meets the Cullens. We stopped at that point, and went to homework. We did our homework; helping each other out.
"What if Edward or Jacob were here. Sitting on you bed...?" She asked; feeling on my bed, staring at me; straight in the eye.
"I would... who knows." I laughed.
"Seriously though, I would go nuts. If Edward were here; I'd tell him, 'Lets run in the tree's'" She started laughing.
"What about Jacob?" I asked her, waiting for her to reply. She thought, I could tell. She had her thinking face on.
"If Jacob were here... I'd say, 'Lets go to La Push, jump off cliffs. Edward wouldn't mind.'" She started to laugh more. I joined her. "Enough of me answering, what about you. What if Edward were here, what would you do?" She asked. I thought of something good.
"I'd ask him to kiss me, and dont stop." I said, romantically. "And if Jacob were here, I'd tell him... 'Hug me, and be my best friend'" She smiled, very widely.
"Aw. Thats so sweet!" She smiled very wide; it looked like it would hurt her cheeks.
"Oh shut up!" I laughed too.
"Im serious! Your a true romantic." She smiled still.
"Thanks. I get that from Twilight." I said, feeling smug.
"So do I!" She laughed.
"No, you think sex over Twilight. You think crazy! Like rated R." I laughed hard. She started laughing.
"I do. I know." We both laughed, then hours came along.. and we were tired. I yawned. She stared at me.
