7:27 AM Central Time: Teara's House: Iowa City

"Teara! Get ready to go!" I yelled up the stairs. We were going to be late again if she took much longer.

"Hold on!"

I sat on the couch looking at my watch. 7:28...and counting...


"I'm coming!" she snapped.

"We'd better not miss the bus again!" I yelled back at her.

Teara bounced down the stairs and pushed a battered paperback into my hands.

"Read this."

I looked at the cover. Two snow white hands extended, offering me to take a bite of a blood red apple. I groaned in mock disgust as I saw the shimmering title, "Twilight! I told you I wouldn't read Twilight until it was unpopular!"

"Well," she bargained, "It's un popular now so you can read it."

"Fine." I stopped arguing.

We both glanced at the clock. It read 7:31.

"SHOOT! WE'RE GOING TO MISS THE BUS!" we screamed as we dashed out the door.

Little did I know that once I bit that little red apple, there would be no going back.


I read the book on the bus. The first five pages were good, despite being mediocre. Then I got to Edward. I stopped reading just as we got to our destination.

"Teara, this is a really good book!" I exclaimed as I read on the way down the sidewalk towards school.

"I know. Just you wait though."


After School: In which a very foolish girl gets $40 worth of books: And reads it in a matter of hours.

"Mom! I need to go to the library!" I yelled as I climbed into our Toyota.


"Books. Must. Read. Second. Agony!" I gasped as I clutched Teara's tattered copy to my chest. I wouldn't let go. I had actually scratched my self to bleeding point during lunch because I couldn't bring it into the lunch line AND THE LINE WAS EXTREMELY SLOW!


When we got to the library I ran in as she tried to find a parking spot. I raced to the computers.

"T-W-I-L-I-G-H-T" I spelled out slowly as I typed it.

The book came up. That didn't help...

"N-E-W M-O-O-N"

Out of copies.

And the waiting list was  really long!


Still copies, but in a dwindilng number and I needed to read the second book first! I thought I was going to cry.

I called my mother who was still looking for a parking spot.

"I'll take you to prarielights..." she muttered.


I walked into prarie lights and down to the children's books.

It wasn't there! I looked madly around.

"Excuse me? Do you have a copy of New moon?" I asked the lady at the desk

"Blue Moon?"

"New Moon."

"Yes they are over there." She pointed at a bookshelf in the corner, covered in books. I could see the tulip and ribbon from here. I rushed over.

My phone went off.

"Hello?" I asked breathlessly, my hands closing on a copy.

"Where are you?" It was my dad.

"At Prarie Lights!"

"Where in Prarie Lights?"

"The bacement!"

I heard footsteps echoing down. There came my mother and father. They saw me near the two books, clutching a hard cover copy of New Moon; the only kind they had.

"Justine. Just get both." My mother sighed. She gestured towards Eclipse. I nearly fainted with releif. I would get both now!"


I ran -almost sprinted- up to my room.

"I'll come down for dinner!" I yelled, and slammed the door shut.

I ate away at New Moon, only stopping once and forcing myself to go through the middle. It hurt to not skip, to not find happier parts. But I needed to read this through.

Dinner came and passed. I ate quickly, and dashed back up to my room, finishing the novel a few minutes later.

I moved on to Eclipse.

It was 12:45:23 when I finished the last book. I sighed in contentment. I had done it. I had finished the Twilight Series.

With vampires and werewolves in my dreams, I settled down to sleep, ignoring the fact that I had Tae Kwon Do the next morning. That could go to hell for all I cared. All I cared about now, was the fact that Bella and Edward were happy; and that someday...

I would be a vampire too...
