Chapter 5: First siku Blues (Back to Renesmee’s P.O.V)
I walked through the door of my first class at Forks High, Biology. My stomach was in a knot the excited conversations turned into quiet whispers that my classmates thought I couldn’t hear. “She’s so pale! Did wewe see her car?! Who was that guy that came to school with her and where is he?” Those were the female whispers the male contribution was even zaidi disturbing, “She’s hot! I’m going to ask her to the homecoming dance.” Mr. Banner, my teacher called me over to his dawati I cringed I was afraid of this. Why can’t teachers just allow wewe to ease yourself into introductions in your own time? Mr. Banner cleared his throat and placed his hands on my shoulders, “Class, this is Renesmee Cullen, her grandfather and Uncle work at the hospital, I trust that wewe know them please give her a big Forks High welcome.” The glass groaned and chanted “Hi Renesmee” with about as much enthusiasm as I was putting out myself. My face turned beet red as Mr. Banner led me to an empty kiti, kiti cha towards the middle of the classroom. I looked at the girl who I would be sitting with all year; she had striking green eyes and chin length brown hair that was cut into a choppy bob. She wore a black shati and jeans and had the same bored look on her face that I had. “Here wewe are Ms Cullen I am sure that Ms. Stanley will get wewe all settled”, with that Mr. Banner walked back to his desk.
“Hi, I’m Sienna, welcome to Forks High au as I refer to it, hell” she snickered as she rolled her eyes. I liked this girl she had my sense of humor.
“Thanks”, I replied, “You’re the first person who has spoken to me today instead of staring and whispering.” Sienna had an amused smirk on her face and said, “Yea apparently your family’s like the Kennedys of Forks.” We laughed together and I said,” Hardly.”
“You should have heard everyone this morning it was ridiculous, like there has never been a new person at this school.” I smiled to myself because little did she know I had most likely heard zaidi than she did.
“So aliyopewa that most think I am a freak au a snob why is it that wewe are speaking to me?” I asked her. Sienna ran a hand through her hair and looked up from her sketches that she was working on, “First of all, I have a brain of my own which isn’t very maarufu around here FYI. sekunde of all I am not one to get caught up in hype of any kind” she smiled, “I just figured that wewe might need a break from the attack of the morons.” I smiled back at her; at least there was one cool person here.
“So” I offered sarcastically, “aren’t wewe going to give me the third degree about my family au where I am from?”
“Nah, I’m also not big on questioning people, I find that people will tell wewe what they want wewe to know.” I smiled to myself in relief at finding someone like me in this sea of shallow minds. Mr. Banner called the class to order and that was the end our our conversation. After class, Mr. Banner pulled me aside as everyone filed out the door. He wanted to know how my Uncle Edward is doing. “Huh? Oh, my d-” I stopped myself realizing my mistake. “I mean, yea my Uncle is great! He graduated at the juu of his class from Dartmouth and is in his residency with my Grandfather at the hospital he loves medicine.” I smiled as brightly as I could hoping to cover up my little mistake. Mr. Banner smiled, looking of into the distance, “He was the smartest student that I have ever had. I knew he would be perfect for medicine, he has a mind that most teachers don’t come across in a lifetime” I held in the urge to laugh at that considering my dad had spent zaidi years in school exercising that mind of his than Mr. Banner had been living for. “Yea, he is really smart he will be a good Doctor”, I agreed. He looked at me very seriously, “Your whole family is intelligent I will be expecting big things from wewe Ms. Cullen.” With that he smiled at me and then walked out of the room, “great” I though to myself, “no pressure.” When I walked out into the hallway Sienna was there leaning against a locker sketching again. We compared schedules and discovered that we had the same math class in the afternoon, but that was the only other class we were in together, we weren’t even in the same lunch. “Well I will see wewe later she said, try not to crack under the pressure,” She smirked. I laughed at her, “Yea, I will try my best, see ya.” The rest of my morning was fairly uneventful; of course every other teacher gave me the same embarrassing introduction (which was even zaidi annoying considering that everyone knew who I was kwa that point). When the kengele rang for lunch I half contemplated leaving for the siku but then I remembered that my father would know and I am sure would be waiting in the parking lot. So, I took a deep breath and was off to the cafeteria. Since I am half human I can eat human chakula but I prefer blood. I grabbed and apple and some water knowing that I was going hunting later besides chakula was the last thing my stomach wanted. I sat down at an empty meza, jedwali ignoring all of the eyes on me. I pulled out my biology book and got started on impressing Mr. Banner with my “brilliant Cullen brain,” when I noticed a shadow looming over me I slowly looked up and into the eyes of a god. He had beautiful brown eyes and dark hair that was tousled and adorable. He spoke in a thick accent, “Is this kiti, kiti cha taken?”
“Oh, um no,” I offered unintelligently. He had totally caught me off guard and was gorgeous.
“My name is Nahuel, it’s my first siku here.”
“Yea me too, I replied sucks doesn’t it?” He laughed at me and looked me in the eyes and replied,” It’s not so bad now.” I felt the blood rushing to my face and looked down. “So what is your name he asked. “Oh, I am Renesmee Cullen.” His eyes had a strange faraway look to them and then he said, “Wait a dakika are wewe related to Alice Cullen?”
“Yes, I’m her neice.” I responded mildly annoyed and ready to be questioned to death.
“Do wewe remember me?” He asked, “Well wewe were so young when we first met that wewe might not. My aunt and I are Marafiki of your Aunt Alice.” I remembered instantly as soon as he told me, he was the same as me half mortal and half vampire and he along with his Aunt had saved my life and the life of my family and our Marafiki when the Volturi came to town because of my birth. My eyes lit up and I hugged him, “I do remember you! How are you? How is your Aunt?” He laughed as I went on questioning him, the hypocrite that I am. “I am well and so is my Aunt. We have settled in Forks so that we can start over, we figured it was as good a place as any since we have Marafiki here.”
“Did my aunt know that wewe were coming?” I asked. He cleared his throat, “Um it was kind of a last dakika decision.” The kengele rang before I could swali him further. “Well why don’t wewe meet me in the parking lot and wewe can come back to my house after school I am sure my family would upendo to see you.” He smiled at me, his smile was absolutely gorgeous. At the end of the siku I was waiting kwa my car for Nahuel when Jacob came up to me, “So how was your first siku Nessie?” I smiled at him, “I don’t think that school is going to be as bad as I thought, I made a couple of Marafiki one of them is actually going to ride nyumbani with us.” A look of relief crossed his face, “I am so glad it went well for wewe but I knew it would! hujambo later on I need to talk to wewe about something really important,” He smiled at me oddly I couldn’t explain it. His whole face just softened and he had this hopeful look in his eyes. All of a sudden his face darkened I looked up into the direction he was looking in and saw Nahuel standing there. “Hello Renesmee”, Nahuel alisema “I hope that I haven’t kept wewe waiting too long”. “No… its fine,” I responded breathlessly his accent was amazing and the way that my name rolled off of his tongue made me melt. “Um, I snapped myself out of it. “Jake this is my friend Nahuel, do wewe remember-“
“I know who he is” Jacob interrupted me, while he stared Nahuel down. “Well let’s go then” I alisema as I sent Jacob the king of rudeness death rays with my eyes.
