Statement of Intent: If Du read to the end, you'll notice that I do not advocate against Lesen Twilight, just putting it into context for young readers. This was originally written for a Facebook audience of Friends until I decided to post it here as well. It was not intended to offend Twilight Fans oder readers, but to simply give a little perspective on why I believe Edward Cullen is a poor character to respect/admire. Should there be enough beliebt demand, I'm willing to write a similar Artikel about Bella Swan.

By: Gabriela Acosta



Chapter 1
“How would Du describe me Lilly?” I asked.
“Paula, you’re a very smart and unique person. But also mysterious. In a good way.” She replied.
“How am I mysterious? I mean, I never thought of myself that way.”

“But Du know I’m very shy! Besides, I’m not very good at socializing, Du know? I always make myself sound like a total freak!

Preface

“Okay honey, it’s your first time on a plane!” my mother cooed me. I was five then so I didn’t hate it entirely. “I’m ready Mommy!” I said. We sat in section… 1A and 1B.
My mother was overly excited for the both of us because it was also her first time on a plane.
After takeoff, my mother spotted San Diego, which was the wrong direction. We were going to visit my grandparents in Michigan. It felt like the plane was dropping all of a sudden.
“Mommy, are we going to land now?” I asked. “I’m going to go talk to the pilot honey. I’ll be right back.” My mother...

He’s looking at me like – well, like he wants to look at me. Like he likes what he sees, and he’s smiling and his eyes are so blue, even in the faint glow of the porch light they shine, and I nod dumbly, blindly, then grope for the door handle, telling myself to look away and not yet able to do it.
“Sarah,” he says, softly, almost hesitantly, and my herz slam bangs, beating hard, and this is what it’s like to want someone Du can’t have. To want someone Du shouldn’t even be looking at.
Sarah is in quite the predicament. She’s riding that rollercoaster of first Liebe – the...
