“Just try to keep an open mind, I swear te are as bad as your mother zero fashion sense, and all the time that I have spent teaching te how to dress… are te even listening to me??” my aunt Alice grumbled as she rolled her eyes at me. Apparently my selection for my first giorno of high school wasn’t nearly good enough. I pulled myself in from my daydreams and let out a sigh of surrender to my most annoying yet preferito aunt. “Ok, ok I am waving the white flag, do with me what te will, if it means we will be done here!”
“Nessie is your Aunt playing dress up again?” My mother asked in her silky voice with a look of amusement in her golden eyes. She and my father had just walked in the door and came into my room to see what all of the commotion was. “Aunt Alice is trying to make me presentable enough for school tomorrow", I detto as sarcasitcally as I could. I was completely aggravated that my family was forcing me to go to a conventional high school. I am not the conventional teenager, being half human and half vampire. In a couple of months I will be fully grown and immortal. Most kids are worried about their driving exam and here I am sealing the deal with my immortality can te see my quandary? I am perfectly content to continue being home schooled as I have been up until this point. In a few years when I am old enough to go away to college I might actually have a shot at fitting in. “Honey just accept the first thing that she lays out for te and she will be content and sposta on to annoy someone else” my mother replied with a laugh. To that Aunt Alice responded, “Funny Bella now that te mention it, it has been awhile since I have gone through your closet and updated things.” Although they were joking I couldn’t unisciti in. I felt the anger rise up into my throat it erupted into a snarl, “Mom honestly why do I have to go? I already know what they will be teaching me, Grandpa Carlisle has been teaching me college level courses for years I don’t see the need in my going.” My father is normally a gentle and soft spoken man, but his eyes flashed and he returned the commento with a growl, “Renesmee Carlie Cullen, do not talk to your mother in that tone. te are going to high school that is final. I sat through high school for 80 years, I held 3 degrees in medicine and I still sat there. We are asking te to go for only 4 years. te are half human and, te need to have human experiences. There is più to learn in this world than can be learned from libri and this family, te need to interact with people your age.’ “MY AGE???? According to the humans I am 6 years old!! Do te understand how ridiculous this is? How am I going to fit in??? On superiore, in alto of that the weirdness factor is even greater when te take into consideration the fact that everyone in Forks believes I am your niece, and they can’t know that te are my parents because it will tip them off to what a bunch of freaks we are considering te gave birth to me a mese after your wedding which was 6 years fa and I am old enough for high school?! te don’t understand NONE of te understand”
“Nessie”, my mother always the peacemaker cut in “We know it is awkward your father and aunts and uncles never felt as though they fit in throughout all of their years in high school as vampires, and I never felt that I fit in as a human. It is a teenage thing no body feels as though they fit in we are just asking te to be open-“
“And why should I?” I cut her off.
“Because te might just find something wonderful” my father interjected. His eyes filled with happiness as he gazed into my mother’s eyes I had no doubt that he was remembering back to their first meeting in which he tried as hard as he could not to kill her. Talk about romance. “I can’t listen to this anymore”, I grabbed my iPod and flew out the door before I could hear any of their responses. I didn’t need to see o hear it though. I knew my mothers brow was furrowed in concern, my aunt scowling at the fact that she can’t predict my future since I am a half breed, and my father read my mind which told him I was headed to La Push to see Jacob, my best friend.
When I walked up to Jacob’s house he met me at the door, he saw that my eyes were red and sensed the mood I was in. “What happened?” He asked. “I don’t want to talk about it Jacob,” I snapped.
“Um ok, Nessie then why are te here?” He tried to keep a straight face and I attempted to stay mad but we both started laughing. I looked at him with a big smile “that is exactly why I am here, te always make me laugh.” He led me into the woods and we started walking. He took my hand and said, Ok, seriously what’s wrong?” I went into my whole explanation of the fight with my parents and how I think it is stupid for me to have to go to high school. “So basically te are just concerned that te won’t fit in?” He asked me in a very serious tone that was not the least bit condescending. “Yes that is it. My life is very different to say the least and I don’t want to have to lie to people about it. I won’t be able to bring my Friends home because I feel uncomfortable with all of the lies. What will I do when they notice that I actually look like my mother? Grandpa Charlie didn’t believe that I was my father’s niece he saw through it right away, what will I tell people?” Jacob tucked a curl of hair that was in my face behind my ear and thought before he answered. "Well, he sighed, “You do have a point but so do your parents. High school is something that te need to experience before te can really go into the world.” I got up with a start, “You know what Jacob forget it, I thought that te of all people would get it but clearly-“
“Renesmee", he cut me off I stopped turning away and looked back at him in shock he had never called me da my full name in my whole entire life. “I Amore te and I want what is best for you. I know that it doesn’t seem like it now but your parents Amore te very much as well and they are trying to broaden your horizons. It is just a few years. te might even have fun" he winked at me with his mischievous brown eyes. “No I won’t Jacob te won’t let me get away with anything between you, and my father Leggere my mind there will be no fun” at that he laughed, “Come on lets get te home before your father comes to get you. I promise te that I will be here for you. ciao I’ll tell te what I will even take te to prom.”
“Wow. I commentato sarcastically “in that case I better fly home so that I can get my book bag ready” He rolled his eyes at me “You are every bit as sarcastic and obnoxious as your mother…. But cuter” and he flashed me one of his amazing cuore melting grins. “Alright te win this one but I’m no giving up I will find a way out of this, and I am racing te home da the way.” With that I took off to take advantage of the head start that I wouldn’t need (I knew he would let me win). “You are such a cheater he yelled as he hurried to phase so that he could catch up with me. Jacob is a shape shifter part human and part wolf. Sometimes I feel that he is the only one who truly gets me we are two of a kind in a way.
My aunt Rosalie and Uncle Emmett were in the living room when we got back to my Grandparents house. “Ew somebody needs to let the dog out” Aunt Rosalie detto in disgust as Jacob and I entered the house. “Hey Blondie, Jake responded, “Why did the blonde drown?” “Because she hit her head on the bottom of the pool trying to see her reflection” I rolled my eyes as my Uncle and Jacob both started cracking up Aunt Rose’s eyes squinted fiercely and my uncle stopped laughing I think it’s hilarious that he is three times her size and yet deathly afraid of her. “I’m not even going to waste my breath in response", she turned to me and said, "Nessie I was waiting for te I want to talk to you” Aurrgh I groaned "not te too". Jacob laughed and sat down on the divano with my Uncle to watch the game. “Come on let’s go for a walk I really need to discuss something with you” she urged. I figured that I had already heard it from just about everyone today so why not get the lecture yet another time. In an act of resignation, I followed her out the door and into the brisk autumn night.
