A/N: This is my first fan fiction. I hope you like it and I will try to update as quickly as possible.

DISCLAIMER: Who doesn't know who wrote the 'Twilight' saga? We all know it wasn't me!

You're gonna be a shining star, with fancy clothes, fancy car-ars.
And then you'll see, you're gonna go far.
Cause everyone knows, just who you are-are.

I turned my I-pod up, drowning out whatever was happening outside my room. I was sprawled across my bed, my whole body underneath the covers.

So live your life, ay ay ay.
Instead of chasing that paper.
Just live your life (Oh!), ay ay ay.
Ain't got no time for no haters.
Just live your life (Oh!), ay ay ay.
No telling where it'll take you.
Just live your life (Oh!), ay ay ay.
Cause I'm a paper chaser.
Just living my life (ay), my life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)
Just living my life (ay), my life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)

"Bella!" called Renee, opening the door to my room. Renee looks like me but prettier. She has shorter hair and wide, child like eyes. "Hurry up! Get out of that bed! We're having a family meeting!"

Stupid family meeting! What now! Maybe because Alice took Charlie's credit card for her shopping spree...? Or because Emmett almost totalled his Jeep...?

I pulled my earphones out of my ears and switched off my I-pod. I walked into the kitchen and sat down at our mahogany kitchen table. My sister Alice was sitting next to me and Emmett was sitting across from me. Renee sat next to him and Charlie sat at the head of the table.

Charlie cleared his throat."Okay, now that we're all here, we can begin. First of all, my credit card is off limits to everyone except for myself and your mother"-he looked directly at Alice as he said that. "Secondly, drive carefully. I will not buy you new cars. And thirdly, someone's getting married soon!"

Wait, what? OMG maybe it's Alice! "Who? Alice did Jasper...? Emmett did you...?"

"No Bella. It's you. You're getting married," Charlie said bluntly.

I froze. WHAT?! Nobody proposed to me! I don't even havea boyfriend!

"What? I...No... What's... who...no!" I stuttered. "Who?"

"Mike Newton," said Renee.

The Newton's were one of the wealthiest families in town. They were almost royalty. I didn't know Mike personally. I had barely seen him. How could they expect me to just... just... marry him like that!

"No! Never! I refuse to marry some guy I barely know!" I screamed, slamming my hand on the table.

My family just stared at my sudden outburst. I had never screamed like that before.

But the circumstances were different. My parents just decided that I would marry some guy I barely knew! I wasn't going to marry him! I would never, ever get married for a reason other than love. Did they expect me to just throw my life away?!

"Bella, please see reason!" implored Renee.

"What reason?! There isn't any! We're not poor! We don't need the money! I'm only fifteen for crying out loud! Why can't he marry someone else? Why me?" I cried.

"He asked especially for you," said Renee.

"He doesn't even know me!"

My father was silent the whole time. But I knew it would happen. I could feel it. The tension was building. His anger was mounting and soon it would burst.

"I am not, I repeat AM NOT, marrying someone I don't know!" I yelled. I mean, really. I didn't even know this guy He could be an insane, abusive possessive guy who could lock me in my room for the rest of my life, for all I knew.

"Bell-," began Renee.

"No! No, no, no, no NO! It's not going to happen!"

Charlie suddenly snapped.

"Bella! You will marry him! I don't care what you say or what you do, but you will marry him!" he screamed, standing up. He looked ready to slap me.

Emmett stood in front of me protectively. He was a great big brother. Sometimes a little stupid, but he was everything a big brother should be. Emmett had dark curly hair, muscular and pale.

Charlie started to cool down a bit, but he was still visibly angry.

"C'mon Bella!" cried Alice, grabbing my arm. "You're meeting him in an hour. We have to get you ready."

Alice was my best friend. She looked a lot like a pixie. She was short and thin. Her deep black hair was cropped short, pointing in every direction.

She pulled me into my room. I was still in shock from what Charlie had said. He wanted this marriage really bad. I wonder why.

I guessed I had to go through with it. I couldn't stop it from happening. Not by myself. And I can't imagine anyone willing enough to face Charlie. So... I might not like it, but I didn't have a choice. No matter what I wanted for this life, none of it would happen.

I would marry Mike Newton. I shuddered slightly.

A/N: Okay, so that was the first chapter. I hope you liked it. I already have the next couple of chapters written down. But please review. If I don't get at least three reviews I will not continue. I mean, why continue a story nobody even likes?
