**alrighty, so I started this not too long ago. It kind of sucks so far, but it'll get better later. I have the first few chapters done, and they're all SHORT! Let's pray I'll get longer chapter ideas soon. For now, here's chapter 1. Please review**

It was the first day of school. Bella was the new girl (again). She had trouble finding her way around. "Anatomy, Room 031," Bella said out loud. She looked for a friendly face, and walked up to a random guy. "Excuse me, where's Room 031?"

"Up your ass," the guy said as he walked away.

"Seriously, I'm a new girl…"

"And I'm the President of the United States."

"I'm being honest!"

"You're being a stalker. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to Anatomy."

"Now? I have Anatomy now."

"Don't follow me."

"But you're gonna be in my next class. Will you please tell me your name, at least?"

"If you must know, my name is Gabe Goodman."

"Please to meet you. I'm- "

"I don't care."

Gabe walked away and Bella quietly followed. She sat down next to someone and started to introduce herself, when the person moved to a different seat. In fact, everyone was moving far away from her. "What's going on…"

"Newbie!" someone shouted as she threw a paper ball at her.


"Suck on that, Newbie McNewbiePants."

"Actually, my name is Bella. Bella Swan."

"What a disgusting name."

"Well, Bella is short for Isabella…"

"I know that. Do I look like a retard to you?"

"Don't use that word!" Gabe shouted.

"Why not?"

"Cuz it's offensive to those that really are retarded." Bella smiled gratefully at Gabe. "Exempli gratia, Bella!"

The whole class laughed, and Bella hid in embarrassment. She thought that maybe Gabe was sticking up for her, but she was wrong. She had no idea what 'exempli gratia' meant, and she wasn't sure she wanted to know either. All she knew was that she was the new girl, and, so far, it sucked.
