[b]Edward POV[b]

"Hey, Bro." Jacob clapped me on the back. "Drinking already?" He smirked.

"Shutup." I ran my hands through my hair. "Where is he?"

"Inside." Jasper pointed to the heavy metal door. "We bolted a chair to the floor and tied him in it." He smiled.

I shook my head. "Have te just been waiting to tie someone?"

"Yep." He grined.

I chuckled and opened the heavy metal. "Where at?"

"Back room off the left hall." Jake took the lead.

I stopped in a poorly lit room. It was cold, leaky, and smelled like mold. I would have to go home and take a doccia after being in here. In the center of the room a man was tied to a a chair, just as Jasper had said. He was sweating bullets, even in the coldness of the dingy room. A rag was tied around his face and tucked into his mouth. He looked up at me, looking as if he was going to die without me even having to do anything.

Bella’s POV

The rest of the mese went basically the same, get up, get dressed, eat, go to school, and not see Edward. After a while I got used to not seeing Edward but I couldn’t forget that it was probably my fault he never returned. I was hoping he’d come back just so I could stop worrying and blaming myself. I’d even deal with the glaring. It was raining when I got up, a good thing for me. Today was going to be a great giorno I hoped. When I got to school I was greeted da all my Friends as usual. But as we were talking I noticed Edward was there. I was suddenly worried what if he still hated me. I spent the rest of the morning thinking about that. da lunch I had decided I’d go to class as usual and try to pretend everything was normal. biology was going to be a long class today. I walked slowly toward biology dragging my feet. I was dreading that class. But I also realized has I thought about it that I wanted to see his face again, I just hoped he was in a good mood today. I got to class just before...

New Story Twilight?N2P
It's Complicated
It's complicated, that's how Jacob would all ways start the story whenever I asked him why I was different. I looked nothing like the Black family, I didn't favor a single one of them. They all had dark hair and dark eyes while I was the complete opposite. White blonde hair and blue eyes. I could barley blend in, my hair and eyes gave away but skin was just as tan as it could be. 
I knew the story Jake was going to tell me, I asked about this a lot. But mainly at bedtime.
Every night right before letto I would ask Jacob Black "why am I different?" and every night he would tell me this " it's complicated and te are different because te are special". Of course I got him to tell me the whole story, I didn't want to forget about my real family.
The story goes something like this...
[i]It was a summer of 2002, te has just turned 6, and te were wild has can be. It was really hot that day. (Jake all ways loved to stall never wanting to get the bad part.) te were over here playing with me and another friend around cena time. We had a lot of fun. All ways did.

Bella’s POV

I woke up that morning still worrying that I would make più enemies. I was also still thinking about what I did in the first place to make him hate me. I thought all I did was have to sit successivo to him. Maybe he just wasn’t a people person. I could live with that I just wouldn’t talk to him o anything. It took me even less time to get to school today because I already knew where all my classes were and where the school was. At lunch I didn’t see him and I kind of hoped he skipped that giorno so I wouldn’t have to sit with him. But I still couldn’t forget about yesterday.

Edward’s POV

Who was she and why did she smell so good to me. Was she sent here to purposely make my life hell. I had seen her in other peoples thoughts so she wasn’t really knew to me. I knew that she had class with me but I didn’t think she would smell so good. It was torture. To make it even worse I couldn’t even hear her thoughts. The whole...

"Im not deaf!"

In my haste to get to the door, either from having a visitor o having them irritate me da ringing 4 times, I ran into the coffee table, the couch, and the cucina table.

"Hello?" I opened the door, i could make out the outline of a figure but i wouldnt know who it was until they talked.

"Bella? What are te doing at home?"

"Edward? Shouldnt te be in school o something?"

"Shouldnt you?"

I slammed the door in his face o at least attempted to cause his foot got in the way.

I sighed," I got suspened for awhile."

"Oh."

"Yeah... Wanna come in?" Where did that come from?

"Uh....Sure."

I led him into the living room area cause it just seemed akward if we stood in the hall.

What’s your successivo class? he asked still cheerful English I answered hoping he’d have a different class I really didn’t want a cucciolo kind of boy the first day. O he answered I history.

I headed to lunch with people once again staring. One the way a girl named Angelia came up to me and asked if I wanted to sit with her. I was glad I wouldn’t have to sit alone o with Mike. I entered the cafeteria and went to sit with Angelia and she introduced me to her Friends I wasn’t really paying attention I was watching a small group of people enter. They had something about them that was fascinating yet strange. Who are they I asked distracted. The tall guy with dark hair is Emmet and the one with the blonde hair is...

It was 7:40 am and I was still tired I didn’t sleep much do to the fact I was still adjusting to my new room. It reminded me of a hospital room a little, simple white walls and ceiling little furniture I don’t know how I didn’t relies it before. I didn’t like it I’d have to do something about it soon. I looked at the clock on the bacheca it read 7:45 now. I’d have to hurry if I didn’t want to be late. I rushed to put on a cute pair of jeans and a nice alzavola, teal colored tang-top it was my preferito shirt. I ran downstairs to find Charlie had already left to work this was good no weird small talk o distractions. Then I had a small panic attack how was I going to get to school I didn’t want to walk like the 2 miles that would definitely make me late what would I do. I almost called Charlie but then I remembered he had bought me a truck it wasn’t fancy but it wasn’t to good looking either. It was a Chevy truck I had no clue what year. It was a rusty red color. It wasn’t my preferito color but...

What im Scrivere is basically a Twilight kinda thing but writen the way I want it so ya it will sound alot like Twilight but it's all I could think to write about. Please read it and tell me what te think. __________________________________________________
Bella's POV
I had moved to Forks to give my mom her time with her new husband. I knew it didn't bother her when I was there but I felt like she wanted più time with him. But I honestly didn't want to sposta tho I would never tell Renee o Charlie that. I was a fan of dark and rain,wich was basically all Forks, Washington was so it could be worse. Forks was a small town hardly anyone knew about unless te lived there and everyone knew everything about anyone who lived there. That's what I liked I didn't like living in a city where no one could be trusted, it didn't feel sicuro, cassetta di sicurezza to me.

Bellas POV
When your life is messed up... who do te turn to? Lets just say... I had to unisciti them. Not that I wanted to. The burgendy eyes, it made feel like a killer. Watching and waiting for humans. Having, to follw orders and using my powers on the innocent. Yes I am, part of the Volturi. Well, I was. I am Isabella Swan; and this is my story...

Running was my strength, however, strength was my weakness. I felt like flying when I ran. It was dark, with a full moon; and no stars were out. All that surrounded me; were trees and dirt. But behind me were the guards. "She'll be back. o she will have to answer to Aro." Jane hastily spat out. Of course it would be her. Not that I cared. I was going to make it out of the woods when- "Going somewhere Isabella?" Alec questioned. Of all the guards and he was the fastest. "Alec please. te of all Vampiri#From Dracula to Buffy... and all creatures of the night in between. know I don't belong here." I begged. Left up to Jane, I would be Janes new test power dummy. However, he was the loyal to me, in my days of just joining the Volturi. "Isabella, if I let te go, te swear on loyality that te can't come back. Aro would try and kill you. So are te sure?" Alec...
