TwilightGuys Report: Edward Meets Bella…In Real Life

January 20th, 2009 at 12:05 am by Kaleb Nation


Dear Kaleb,

So up until about two months ago, my Twilight knowledge was limited to mocking any girl I saw for reading “that apple book”.

But when I moved across the country to live with my uncle, swapping into a co-ed high school with my cousin, out of nowhere there were apples, flowers, ribbons and chess pieces everywhere there was estrogen, including the desks of some of my teachers! It roused my curiosity a bit more and I asked my cousin about it, worried I’d find out she was as crazy obsessed with it as all the other girls were. To my huge relief, she informed me that she wasn’t. She was just starting the first audio-book a friend had lent her. It was supposed to be this epic love story. Bleh.

Anyway, Liz got me invited to a friend’s party later that week since I was the ‘new guy’. Just after I got there, I spotted a girl across the room chatting up with some friends. The most conspicuous thing about her was that she was wearing casual clothes at a Halloween party.

I asked Liz about her and she kinda did a double take when she saw who I was talking about. Told me that was Bella, the girl who’d lent her the Twilight audio. I felt weird just walking up to her out of nowhere so I asked Liz if she’d introduce me and she obliged.

“Hey, guys. This is my cousin,” she told them casually, “Edward, this is Bella.”

And the girls totally flipped, especially Bella. Scared the crap out of me too. They squealed and giggled and I turned beet red, feeling like an idiot since I’d always hated my full name.

“Just Eddie,” I corrected with a glare at my cousin as I shook Bella’s hand.

Out of nowhere (again) the girls decided to unanimously ditch the two of us with some lame ‘dying of thirst’ line, leaving Bella and me alone. So in an attempt to make small talk, I asked her about her outfit and if she couldn’t find a costume. She blushed quite obviously and told me she was dressed as ‘Bella Swan’

Logically, I figured that meant she really COULDN’T find an outfit. When I told her as much, she gave me a LOOK.

“Bella Swan? From Twilight?” she asked me, like it was supposed to be clear as day.

“The apple book?” I asked, not having any idea whatsoever what that had to do with anything.

“You really don’t KNOW?” she said, almost laughing.

This exchange led into a long and detailed conversation which started with explaining (to my embarrassment) about the novel’s characters EDWARD Cullen and BELLA Swan and why my introduction sent her and her friends into fits of hysteria. It lasted pretty much the entire party, about vampire baseball and how transformed human blood makes vampires stronger, the whole deal. When the party ended, she tattooed most of my forearm with websites to check out if I was interested, including this one. Thrown somewhere in the middle was her number.

So before my uncle came around to pick us up, I asked Liz, casually as I could, if I could upload the audio book to my MP3 player. She rolled her eyes, as she pulled out her iPod and lent me a headphone.

Three weeks later, we’d gone through all four audiobooks and I was starting to follow the movie news (was I the only one who NEVER saw that proposal coming?). Liz’s crowd, including Bella (who I’d been talking to since Halloween) invited me to go to the midnight movie.

As we were walking out, I figured now or never and asked Bella if she wouldn’t mind being my stupid lamb. Ignoring her friends who awwed and cheered behind us, she just laughed and told me that she was glad it didn’t take me 90 years.”
