Another Cinderella

Meeting Alice

(Bella's POV.)

When I pulled into the parking lot there were hardly any cars there. I found a spot, though it wasn't hard, and parked. I got out of my car, grabbed my bag, and headed to the office. As soon as I turned to face the font of the car, I ran into some one. And, being me, dropped my books.

"Here, let me help." Said a girl with short, black, spiked hair.

"It's alright, I got it." I told her.

"No. I bumped into you, so I should help." We stood up and she handed me my books.


"No problem. You must be Isabella right?"

"Yeah, how did you know?"

"Well, I know everybody in school, and I've never seen you before."

"Well it's nice to meet you."

"You too. My names Alice Cullen, by the way." Alice said, stretching out her slim hand.

"Isabella Swan. But you can call me Bella." I said shaking her hand.

"You want to hangout with me at lunch?"

"Sure, I guess. But I have to get my schedule right now."

"Okay. I'll walk with you."

"Fine. But let me warn you first, I trip a lot."

"It's okay. I think I can handle a little tripping."

"Whatever you say." I replied. While we walked to the office we asked each other questions.

She has a brother, who's captain of the football team and they live with their parents Carlisle and Esme. She also said she loves shopping and usually goes with her friend Rosalie and her boyfriend, Jasper, who's also on the football team. From the way she talked about him, she really liked him.

We walked into the office and I approached the desk. The nameplate said 'Mrs. Cope'. She had red, shoulder length hair.

"I'm Isabella Swan. I'm here to get my schedule." I told her nervously.

"One minute." She replied while searching through a pile of papers.

"Here you are. And here's a slip for your teachers to sign." She informed me.

"Thank you." I said, then turned back to Alice.

"So, what are your classes?" She asked me. I showed her my schedule.

Class Schedule








"Looks like we don't have any classes together. At least we can sit together at lunch!" She said, slightly depressed.

"Sure. I Can't wait." I said, glad I had already made a friend. We went to our separate classes, noticing it was already 7:55. Class starts at 8:00.

I quickly ran down the hall, hoping I wouldn't trip. When I entered the class room, I went straight to the front the get the slip signed.

"Thank you." I said, when the teacher handed the slip back. I walked to a seat in the back of the room.

I was thankful I got a seat in the back so they couldn't stare at me. I don't like a lot of attention. I sit beside a boy with dark black hair. The teacher stood and started telling us about what we'd learn during the year. He also past out a list of books we had to read.

When the class was over the guy bese me said, "Hi, I'm Eric Yorkie. You must be Isabella Swan." Eric seemed either too friendly or arrogant. And by that, I mean he's a pig.

"Yeah, but I like Bella." I said as politely as I could.

"So, you want to go out sometime?" He asked, trying to be flirty.

"Sorry, but I don't go for guys like you." I said coldly. Then I walked out of the room to my next class.

The rest of the morning was pure torture.

I sat beside another pig named Mike in Government. (I think he's Jessica's boyfriend.) Then I had to sit by Jessica in Trig and Spanish. So you can safely say I was extremely ready for lunch.

I walked into the cafeteria, and everybody turned to face me. I quickly got in line to get my food. When I turned around, I saw Alice waving at me from a table in the back corner of the room. Nervous, I waked over to her with people staring at me in shock. I guess it's because i'm the famous Chief Swan's daughter. I sat down, with my back facing the staring eyes.

"Why is everybody staring at you?" I asked, noticing they were also staring at her.

"Actually, they're staring at you." Said a blonde girl sitting beside Alice. Her hair is shoulder length and she has Blue aquamarine eyes. She looks purely like a goddess.

"What do you mean? Why are they staring at me?"

"Probably because I don't really invite anybody other than Rosalie here, to sit with me" Said Alice. So, her name is Rosalie. I thought.

"Yeah, they think it's kind of odd. Since were somewhat popular. You can call me Rose by the way. It's really nice to meet you." Said Rosalie.

"You too."

"Wow." Said Alice, apparently stunned.

"What?" I asked.

"Rose only tells people she either really likes or know really well, to call her that. And so far, that's just me, my brother, Jasper, her boyfriend Emmet, and now you!"

"Cool. I'm glad you like me so much." I said to Rose.

"No problem. I can tell were going to be great friends."

"Great. My names Isabella, but you can call me Bella. What did you mean by being popular and it all being odd?" I asked wonderingly.

"Well, we're popular because were dating and also related to the stars of the football team. And because were cheerleaders. We're having tryouts this Saturday, may be you can come." Rose explained.

"One. Wow. I didn't know you were cheerleaders, or that popular. However, both of you are perfect for each. Two. Thanks for the invite, but no thanks. I'm not interested in cheerleading anymore. Three. You know how clumsy I am." The last part i said towards Alice.

"Thanks. You could atleast come to watch. What do you mean 'anymore'? And, I think we both learned personally how clumsy you are." Alice replied in order.

"First, could you two tell me about how you guys met?" asked Rose.

"Sure. I tripped and ran into her this morning." I explained.

"Now that that's covered. What did you mean?!"Yelled an excited Alice. Everybody turned towards us then.

"Shhh! Keep you voice down." "Okay." I said after she nodded.

"I used to do cheerleading because I'm good at gymnastics. In fact I was captain on the team at my old school." Their mouths dropped opened at that. This, of course, made me blush. Which I also do a lot.

Alice was the first to respond. "Wow. I wouldn't have guessed that about you. No offense, though!"

"None taken. And you're not the only one surprised by that fact."

"Do you still practice?" Asked Rose.

"In my spare time. I could show you if you want."

"Definitely! You are going to show us those moves girl!" Alice yelled so loud that, once again, everybody turned to face us. This made me blush even more.

"Shhh! Yeah. I'll show you. Where at though?"

"Either at my house or yours." Already I knew my answer.

"Yours, definitely. If that's alright with your parents."

"Oh, it'll be fine. They're gone for a coulple of weeks any way. But you have to come over tonight!"

"Fine, fine. I'll come over tonight. Is it alright if I follow you after school?"

"Sure, no problem. Meet us outside the gym. We'll be waiting for you."

"Okay." I said, finishing the conversation.

"Ring, ring!"

"I'll see you guys later!" I yelled to them.

"See ya!" They yelled back to me once we were outside.

I hurried to my next class. Biology.
