HE FINALLY READ THE BOOKS
I have two sisters who are obsessed with Twilight, and at first i was just like…what is the big deal?
One time, when they were talking about it, I thought they were talking about real people. At dinner they were saying “OMG I cant believe that Jacob kissed Bella, I hope Edward really hurts him.” Then my other sister said “Yeah i know, eat fast!” and so i said “what do you mean eat fast is this fight happening tonight? Where?”
They both just laughed and didn’t answer me. I didn’t get it, so i said to my mom “you’re just letting them go to a fight?” and she said “James they’re talking about Edward & Jacob” with an expression like i should know what that means. I asked “Who’s Edward & Jacob?” and my sister Liz said “from our book, the one we’ve been trying to get you to read.” I said they were obsessed. They just giggled and said “we know.”
Then a few days later in school i saw my best friend with Twilight in class. This book was starting to tick me off, it was everywhere. I said “come on David not you too!” He claimed Amy, his girlfriend was making him read it, but she was behind him shaking her head.
He said it was actually pretty good and i should just read it. I didn’t want to admit defeat to anyone, so i stole it out of my sister’s room after she was asleep, and I couldn’t put it down. I actually stayed up all night reading it. Then i wanted to read the next one, but it wasn’t in my sister Liz’s room, so i checked my other sister Kate’s room, but i couldn’t find it. I was actually mad. I couldn’t believe i was just as addicted as them!
She had lent it to a friend, and when i asked her about it, it was pretty funny,
“so where’s your stupid book with the flower on it?” I asked.
“Why, i’ll tell mom if you do anything to it so don’t even think about it!” she replied.
“Calm down,” I said. “I just mean cause you always have it pressed to your face”
“I’m not on that one anymore so i lent it to Vanessa.” she said.
It took Vanessa a whole week to give it back, and she put it on the dining room table when we got home, and i took it when they went in the kitchen. I went down to my room, and I had only got to the part where Edward left when Liz came down, so I hid it in my dresser and acted like i was playing World of Warcraft. I was actually upset (i know this is embarrasing to admit but i could feel bella’s pain). So Liz said “did you take New Moon?” i turned and said “no, why would i take your book?”
She started laughing and said “wow, i know wasn’t it awful when Edward left?” I couldn’t even answer her and so she said “it’s okay just read it” and kept laughing up the stairs to tell Kate. I was embarrassed but i took it out of my dresser and kept reading it, and also read Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. Now, I am just as obsessed as they are!”
