Phil, her stepfather is a minor league baseball player so they started traveling and had to move. That’s when Bella decided to go to Forks, Washington, to move in with her father, Charlie. In the beginning she misses Phoenix terribly, but becomes very interested in the Cullens. Especially Edward. She makes new friends, Jessica, Angela, Mike, and Eric.

The next day he takes her into the woods…Eric, Tyler, and Mike see that Bella likes Edward and they are jealous. Edward introduces Bella to his family: Carlisle, Esme, Alice, Jasper, Rosalie, and Emmett. When they go out to play baseball, they stumble into “the game”: James, Victoria, and Laurent, who are not like the Cullens.
