Chapter 1: The Move
It’s early in the morning and I am forced to get up from bed by my, oh so lovable mother. Yah, she’s lovable alright… I peeked through the closed blinds, the sun was about to rise. I don’t have anything against the sun, but I just don’t like the light, in general, period. I like it here in Forks. I like it that the sun rarely shines, but today, of all the days, it decided to show up.. hhmmmpppff….
“Bella, honey, come down so we can eat breakfast together!” my mom yelled from downstairs.
“Coming!!” after taking a long warm shower, changed into jeans and a button down shirt, blow dried my hair, and arranged my luggage, I went downstairs. I was greeted by my parents, Charlie and Renee.
They are not the type of parents you would consider normal, in every sense of the word. Yah they are happy and so in love (don’t get me started..), but there’s just something about those two that I don’t seem to see on others.
“Good morning Hon, how was your sleep?” Renee cheerfully asked
“Great…! Oh no, mom please stop that.. You know I need to do this!... Dad?? “I called to Charlie. Charlie just shook his head. My mom has the tendency to be a little bipolar sometimes. She just cheerfully greeted me good morning and when I answered she just started sobbing again!
“I’m sorry Bells, it’s just that your our only child, and now you’re all grown up and going to college! I’m going to miss you so much!!” sob sob sob.. I went quickly over to my mom who was across from me at the dining table and wrapped my arms around her trying to make her stop crying..
“It won’t be that far mom, I’m just going to
“She’s right Renee, she’s a grown up now, going to college, you’ll need to let her go eventually” Charlie chimed in while taking a sip from his coffee.
Charlie is a very cool dad. He treats me like an adult and I like it. He can be overprotective sometimes but he is more low maintenance than Renee. Even though Rene could be a little too clingy and obsessive at times, she is more carefree and more supportive of my decisions… but now, I don’t know why she is acting all overprotective of me.
Charlie and Renee seem to balance each other out. Every time Renee seems to go a little over board with her obsessive tendencies, my dad is always capable of calming her down, keeping her in one piece. But whenever Charlie acts all stiff and uptight, Renee uses her charm to let him cool down and ease up. It’s cute when you see them making decisions around the house. It’s like watching a TV sitcom... hilarious….
I know I’m not going to live with them for awhile since I’m going to college but I need to go to college. I’m going to miss both of them so much. They’re great parents. Its also relief to get out here, out of old Forks to make a fresh start, to see new people. The longer I stayed here at Forks, the more I am reminded of Him,,, argh!! I tried to push the thoughts immediately out of my head. He will not ruin my move to
After breakfast and a painfully long lecture from my parents of what I should and should not do in college, I went to collect my things, my luggage and my carry on. I brought my books, my CDs and everything that I would be needing in my stay at college, to keep me company. I am not into parties and all that stuff, which I am sure, a lot of college kids are… I enjoy my privacy, a certain feeling of anonymity.
When all of my things are already set and loaded on my truck, (an old fashioned 1953 Chevy pickup truck – its old but I like it!) I went to say my last goodbyes to Renee, who by the way didn’t stop crying since breakfast, and Charlie.
“Good bye mom, I’m going to miss you.” I said, trying my best not to cry.
“Oh honey, I’m going to miss you so much. Call me when you get there okay? Call me everyday, or ill call you. Take care of your things, don’t go out late and please be safe, I love you so much!” Renee said not letting go of me.
“Okay mom, I get it… please stop crying…” I managed to get away from the bear hug she was giving me. I stroked my arms from the pain.
“Alright kiddo! Have fun in college and try to loosen up okay? College is supposed to be fun. I Love you!” yeah, like I’m going to have fun…. Sigh,,,,
After a long goodbye hug from both of them, I’m off to
