First Day of School Blues
I still don't understand why mommy Rose and Jasper were so surprised about what I said about mommy and Emmett. But at least I was able to keep my doggie. Alice asked me what I was going to name her, and I thought that I would call her Daisy. That was my other mommy's favorite flower. I remember 'cause thats what daddy had when they had a ceremony for her.
I didn't see the point of it, she was asleep. So, she wouldn't be able to enjoy it. But then daddy said it was for other people so that they could have more memories of her.
I was glad that I was allowed to keep Daisy. Besides, me an her were already friends. I think it had something to do with Alice saying she 'saw' me with Daisy and that she made me happy. That was conusing to me though. How could Alice have seen me with Daisy when she didn't even see her until Emmett came into my room when mommy didn't say anything. It just didn't make any sense to me.
When I woke up this morning Daisy was asleep at the end of my bed. WHen I woke up I heard people talking downstairs. I snuck out of my room and went to the banister and watched my new family quietly discussing something. The only words I could catch were something about 'clothes', 'food', 'appearances', and 'school'.
That made me wonder if I was going to be going to school too. I don't know though, the last time I went to school I was still living with my daddy. I don't know how I would be able to do that.
"Alice, can you see what our first day of school will be like?"
"Don't forget Bella's first day of kindergarden Edward!"
I quietly walked down the stairs. Why were they talking about me when I wasn't around? Why did Edward and Rosalie want Alice to 'look' and see how our first day of school would be?
They were acting awully weird, but they never seemed to act this way when I was around.
"I don't see Bella getting into any trouble, but we'll have to be careful about her finding out our secret sooner than we thought."
Secret? What could they be hiding, that they didn't want me to find out? I shrugged it off for now. It wasn't any of my business anyway. If they wanted me to know they will tell me when they think that I am ready I suppose.
I was almost down the stairs when I lost my footing and I tripped over my own feet. I waited for the soun of my body making contact with the floor, but I was caught by two strong hands, that were exceptionally cold. I looked up and saw that Jasper had caught me. I always did feel safe when he was around. It was weird though, I never felt that way with daddy. I didn't know why.
"Darlin', you need to be more careful. Are you ok?"
Just as I was about to answer Daisy came running down the stairs and started scratching at the door. Gidgit use to do the same thing when he had to go potty. I told Jasper that I was fine, and skipped off to get Daisy's collar and leash and went outside.
"Bella, remember that you're starting school today as well."
"I know Alice, I heard you all talk about it without me."
This made everyone get quiet. Was it something I said? I didn't think it was a big deal, but apparently to mommy and everyone else this was. "Belly bean, you know it's not nice to eavesdrop on someone else's conversation." What did that mean? "Evesdropping means that you were listening to someone's conversation without that person knowing that you were. Bella, it's not nice, and can get you into trouble as well."
Maybe mommy was right, but I didn't think it was a big deal. Only thing that confused me was the fact that they wanted Alice to 'see' something. How could she see what hasn't even happened yet?
"I understand mommy, I'm sorry. Can I go walk Daisy?"
"I suppose so Belly Bean, but be back in five minutes, I'm taking you to kindergarden today."
I didn't like the idea of being away from my mommy and my new family, but I knew that I was suppose to. Besides, I'll maybe make some new friends.
I walked out the door and saw the outside of my new home for the first time. I mean, I've saw it when we irst arrived, but it was late aternoon at the time. Now, it was early morning. I always did like how everything looked in the morning. I think that was because when I couldn't sleep my other mommy use to stay up and we watched the sun rise. Daddy sometimes watched with us, but not always. He always had to get up early an either go to work, or he had to go work on pappaw's farm.
Daisy didn't take too long, and we were back inside in less than what I was originally told. Esme promised that she would take care of Daisy for me while I was in kindygarden. I was glad for that. I didn't want Daisy to get lonely all alone in my room.
"Come on Bella, it's time for school, and we don't want you to be late."
I looked at the clock, from what I heard Esme and Carlisle talking about I didn't start until nine o' clock. I looked at the microwave, it said seven something. "But Alice, I don't start til nine o'clock according to Carlisle and Esme."
"Yes silly, but we need to get you a backpack that matches your outfit, and then get you some school supplies before school starts since we didn't already do this."
I let out a loud sigh. I never really did like shopping, and I especially didn't like it when Alice took me shopping. It took longer than it really needed to.
"Alice, honey, does Bella really need to spend almost two hours shopping for school supplies when she already has some of her own?"
Thank goodness for Jasper, he always did know how to settle Alice down without hurting her feelings.
Alice huffed a bit and reluctantly ageed that Jasper was right. I silently praised Jasper. Then all of a sudden Jasper turned to look at me and smiled. It was as if he knew I was excited for what he did. It was weird. I quickly turned my head away and ran off to go see what Esme was up to in the kitchen. As I walked away I heard Alice whispering something to mommy about going shopping after school. My happiness plummetted when I heard that a bit. It wasn't that I didn't like Alice, I just didn't like the idea o spending most of the afternoon shopping.
"Hello sweetheart, what would you like for breakfast?"
I thought about that for the longest time and I wanted a breakfast that wouldn't take her so long to make so that she could some time to herself.
"I guess I want some Cookie Crisp cereal."
"What's the magic word?"
I sighed, daddy use to make me do that as well when I didn't say 'please' or 'thank you'. I never knew I would be able to find someone else, an entire family for that matter, that would love me so much like my mommy and daddy did. I felt something wet roll down my cheeks. I touched my hand to my cheek and saw that I, in fact, was starting to cry. I sniffed a bit to try and stop the tears, and wiped away the ones that already fell down my cheeks.
"Oh, honey what's wrong? You can tell me if you feel like it."
I sniffed a bit to try and clear my nose a bit so I could talk.
"I'm ok. I just didn't know that other people could be better than my mommy and daddy. It makes me miss them some more."
She walked around the island in the kitchen and took me in a half hug and told me that it was normal for me to feel this way, and that I will be ok. She also went on to say that she felt honored that I thought so much of her and her family.
"Belly Bean, it's time for school, finish up your cereal and I can take you to your first day of school."
I hurried up and ate the rest of my cereal and went upstairs and kissed Daisy goodbye. On the way out of my room I grabbed my backpack and was out of the house in no time. I even managed not to trip at all on my out to Rosie's red car. I was about to get into the front seat when to strong burly hands grabbed me from behind and turned me around to face him.
"Not so fast squirt, you have to sit in the back."
I scoffed at that statement. I stuck my tongue out at Emmett and turned to try and beg mommy to let me sit up front.
"No Belly Bean, you have to sit in the back in a booster seat. It's the safest place for you to sit."
I was mad I stuck out my tongue at mommy and crossed my arms and pouted. I was not happy.
"Bella, I sit next to you if you sit in the back."
I whipped my head around and saw Jasper standing there.
I just nodded and let Emmett know that he could put me down and I walked over to the open car door and Jasper helped me into my booster chair. I didn't like how I was taller than everyone else in the car, but at least I was with my mommy.
Edward decided to drive Alice, Emmett and himself to school and mommy and Jasper would meet them at school. At least thats what Jasper told me when Emmett walked off towards Edward's silver car.
Before I knew it we were already at my school. I suddently felt really nervous. What if the other kids here didn't like me? What if I don't fit in? Will I like them?
"Everything is going to be fine Bella. I'm sure that the other kids will like you just as much as we like you."
That was strange. How did he know I was so nervous about school? Maybe my daddy was right, I am easy to 'read' when I am upset or nervous. I could feel my face getting hotter the more I thought about it. I willed myself to stop thinking about it, that always made me feel calmer.
"Well looks like we're here. Do you want me to come in with you Belly Bean?"
"Yes mommy. Can Jasper come too?"
Rose nodded and Jasper unbuckled me from my seat and I hopped out of the car. Mommy handed me my backpack and I slowly walked towards the schoolyard.
"Hi, my name is Conor, what's yours?"
"My name is Isabella, but I like Bella."
Conor was nice, but he kept looking at me weird. I walked off and saw these two girls who had the same color hair playing on the teeter totter. I decided to see what they were up to.
"Hi, I'm Isabella, but you can call me Bella."
"Chole, I think she's talking to us..."
"Whatever Ciara, come on we gotta go to Miss Sheilia's class so we don't get in any trouble."
Well that was rude. Guess not everyone was as friendly here like they were back in Houston. Did I really have to stay here?
"Bella, we will pick you up later, look for either my car, or Edwards car. Okay darlin'?"
I nodded to Jasper and kissed mommy goodbye. I ran off towards the playground. I found my teacher, who had her name tag on. I looked at it and it said, "Hi, my name is Miss Sheila". Didn't that girl Chloe mention something about her teacher with that same name? This wasn't going to great, like I thought it was.
I let out a sigh and went to the swings. I was lucky enough that there wasn't anyone on the swings. I hopped on and started swinging. I was getting higher and higher. I was so high that I was making the swing jerk down. I didn't care though, I was having too much fun to stop.
But what happened next I wasn't expecting.
I felt the swing jerk down as swung back, but the jerk was too hard. Everything happened so fast. I could feel myself falling, but there wasn't any strong cold arms to catch me. All that I could remember was that I fell so hard that everything slowly went black. I could see a group of kids and maybe a teacher running towards me. I was just glad that mommy wasn't here. I didn't want her to be mad at me.
A/N: so there you have it chapter 10 of God Blessed Texas. I apologize that I haven't updated in a long time. My step father recently passed away and I was tied up with funeral arrangments. Plus, I recently got a new long haired chihuahua puppy that is now 7 wks old.
So until I can get her under control my updates are going to be irratic.
So I hope that you enjoy this chapter and please leave me plenty of reviews!!
