The flight from Crowded New York to the small town of Forks, Washington was a long one. I'm moving in with my Uncle Charlie and his daughter, Isabella because my parents and older brother died in freak accidents. Only I know the truth about what really happened to them, of course I could never tell anyone without being sent to the loco house. Anyway, I'm Jamie Morgan, i'm seventeen years old, 5ft'6in, long brown hair that goes to the middle of my back, and green eyes.
The plane finally landed in Seattle and I quickly combed my fingers through my hair. I licked my lips just as I walked off the plane. I saw Uncle Charlie standing with a girl who i'm guessing was Isabella and a boy with bronze hair and golden eyes. Golden eyes?
Uncle Charlie broke into a huge grin when I walked towards them. "Your Jamie?" he asked and I nodded. "Okay I'm Charlie and this is Bella and her friend, Edward." he said Edward like he didn't like the name or the guy.
"Hi." I said with a small smile. I had my two bags in my hands and was wrapped into an awkward hug. Charlie let go and took one of my bags while the boy named Edward took my other one. He had a puzzled look on his face as we walked outside.
Charlie was the cheif of police to the good (their good people right?) people of Forks, so we get ride in a police car. We pulled up to a two story brick house. I think it was cute in an old way. Isabella walked over to me with a smile on her face as Charlie and Edward grabbed my bag. I told them I could carry them, But they told me no.
" Your room is right next to mine if you need anything and I'll take you to school. Be ready by seven okay?" she asked and I nodded, with that being said she skipped out of the room with Edward following behind her.
Charlie showed me up to my room, pointing out the bathroom, his room, and then Bella's room. " Your curfew on school nights it ten and Bella will take you to school. I most likely wont be here in the morning so...." he trailed off and shrugged. He asked me if I like the red covers and I nodded. Then after shifting his weight for a few seconds he left the room.
It was already nine of here so I had one hour of unpacking til I should try and get some rest. "who am I kidding, I wont be able to sleep for weeks." I sighed, sitting back on my bed and grabbing my bags. The big one was filled up with clothes and my two other pairs of shoes. The second one had my iPod, books, notebooks, Art stuff, my old yearbook, and my picture books with pictures of me dancing, my brother surfing, birthdays,mom and dad kissing, junior dance, and other things.
I unpacked my clothes and glided across the floor to unpack everything, I was moving with my dancing feet because it usually cheers me up. I walked over to the book shelf and set a book on it when I noticed a notebook sticking out from the very top. I grabbed the little step stool and got on my tiptoes to grab it.
It was a little notebook with Bella's name written across the top. I didn't want to open it up because it wasn't mine so I opened up my door and stood outside Bella's. I didn't even knock yet when the door opened up. Edward was standing by the door and Bella was sitting on her bed.
"Oh you need something Jamie?" Bella asked and I shook my head.
" I uh just found this and wanted to see if it was yours." I said, walking into the room and handing her the notebook. She opened it up and flipped through it. "Yes this is mine from when I was four, Thanks for giving it back." she said, smiling at me. Her smile made my stomach feel weird and not in the good way.
" Uhh...no problem...." I said, backing out of the room. I just made it out of her room when I ran back to my own. I didn't bother finishing unpacking, instead I flipped down on my bed and turned on my iPod.
I was singing along quietly to the lyrics when there was a knock on my door. I swallowed and turned my iPod off, before walking to my door and pulling it open. I didn't know who I excepted, But it wasn't Edward. He looked puzzled yet very pissed off.
His look reminded me of something and maybe it was just an instinct that made me take a step back. He saw the movement with his eyes, and raised one of his eyebrows. Cool, I always wanted to do that.
"Yes?" I asked and he just continued looking at me. When he didn't answer I turned away and decided I might as well finish unpacking. I walked over to my bed and finished folding my clothes and putting them away, I was just getting up when I tripped over the stool. Great my clumsiness is coming in again. I was falling at a twisted angle that looked like it was going to hurt. I waited for the impact, But it never happened.
Edward caught me just in time. He was so quiet I assumed he left the room, guess not. His touch was way cold like he had held them in the snow for a long time. He was fast and had a cold touch, why did those two things bother me? I couldn't put my finger on it.
Edward set me up right and pushed the stool under my desk. "You okay?" he asked and I nodded.
" Clumsiness, sorry." I sighed and turned away from him.
"It's alright." he said. I think he left the room because the door was shut now. Well duh if he's not in the room I guess that means he left. Why did that bother me so much?
I walked over to the window and slid it open. It was around ten now and I just sat on my bed. I stared at the moon through my window most of the night and time went by slowly til it was finally late enough for me to get ready. I stayed up all night and something tells me this wont be the only time. I just don't wnat to sleep because i'm afriad of nightmares.
I grabbed a pair of dark blue jeans and a red top. I grabbed my black hoodie and my bag and then quickly combed my hair. it was only six thirty when I was done. So I grabbed my iPod and a notebook and walked outside. It smelled good outside at this hour and even though the concrete was cold, I still sat down on it. I was singing along to my iPod and writing when I felt a hand on my shoulder.
It was Bella. She looked puzzled to see me up already and I just smiled at her. "Well I guess we're not going to have a problem. I thought we would be late in case you didn't finish." she said, laughing slightly.
" Sorry I like to wake up early." I sighed and she nodded.
" Come on mines the red Chevy truck." she murmured and I followed her to the truck. I set my bag down and climbed in. Bella started the car and it roared to life making me jump at how loud it was.
" Sorry,it's old. You'll get used to it." she said, flashing a smile.
I nodded and we pulled into the student parking lot. She climbed out of the car and pointed out the office to me before walking away. I wanted to roll my eyes and wonder why she was giving me the cold shoulder, but I thought better of it. I mean they already took me in when they could have said no and set me to a adoption place.
I walked into the office and saw an old lady sitting behind the desk with white hair and glasses. She was wearing casual black pants and a purple shirt. "Can I help you?" she asked and I walked over to her.
" I'm Jamie Morgan." I said, she looked confused. "I just moved here from New york, i'm supposed to get my schedule." She nodded and grabbed my schedule and a map. She asked if I needed any help with anything, but I said no and then she handed me a slip to have my teachers sign and bring home at the end of the day.
With that I left the office and head towards my first class. People stared at me as I walked towards my class. A boy with black hair walked over to me and smiled. " Hi i'm Eric the eyes and ears of this school and you are?" he asked.
"Jamie Morgan." I said, with a little smile. He talked for a while til I stepped into the classroom and hung up my coat. I saw Bella with Edward right next to her, standing talking to a girl with pixie hair and another boy with honey blonde hair who looked like he was in pain.
I handed my slip to the teacher and he signed it before sending me to the back of the room. There was only one table left and it had no partner at it. I sighed and people looked at me, while the teacher completely ignored me.
"It's going to be a long day." I mumbled under my breath.................
