Bella Swan moves from Phoenix, Arizona to Forks, Washington to live with her somewhat estranged dad. There, she meets and falls in love with her mystifying classmate Edward Cullen, who, by the way, is a vampire.
Why does Edward Cullen hate Bella Swan? Or, so it appears he does. He will not be near her or even look at her. What could she have done? Then again, if Edward hates Bella so, why does he save her life? Nonetheless, there is something different about the beautiful Edward Cullen. This peculiarity only makes him more alluring. Still, his skin color is so white! And those eyes, do they change color? Could it be? Is Edward Cullen a vampire?
