"A good sense of direction is bound to help" Angela said cheerfully, thinking that at least it didnt sound like Jayden would be getting lost too much. Angela wondered how she'd be if she was moving to a different down, whether or not she'd be able to find her way easily or if she'd get lost. It was one of the reasons she kind of thought she'd always stay in Forks. It was home to her, and very familiar. "I wouldn't worry about people either, you seem nice to me" She said not thinking the other girl had anything to worry about. She didnt add this part, but she was also sure that the guys would take interest in her, see was a very beautiful woman.
"Take your time" Angela told her with a smile watching Jayden walk into the main office. She hoped that she didnt seem like she was smothering the girl with attention right now, she only wanted to be a helpful guide to her. Angela leaned up against the wall beside the door staying out of the flow of traffic that went through the hallway. She kept her head down, not drawing attention to herself out of habit.
A short time later the door opened again "A schedule, thats great!" She said with a little more excitement than the average person would have given. Angela was a bit surprised by the next question about the Cullens. She had just gotten here and already heard about them? She wondered if she had run into Jessica already. But maybe she had met one of them herself already. "Um, yeah I know the Cullens, I actually sit with them at lunch sometime...my friend is dating the one...have you met them?"

Sense of direction may help with finding her way around, it had helped her get to school. Jayden knew what she needed way a sense, common sense! Everything she had done upto that moment showed her lacking of that particular sense, something she could never explain to the human before her. As for Angela’s comment on been nice, Jayden smiled thinking that she may appear so but the truth was far from it. She knew her very nature, like others in the school, was far from nice and something they fought against daily. “Thank you, you seem very kind yourself. All the help you’ve given me this morning has given me a lovely impression of people.” Jayden said genuinely. Her words halted and she quickly replayed them. “People here, in Forks, I mean.” she said barely missing a beat.
If stepping into the school that morning had been a big step then walking into the office was a jump into the abyss; a nail in the coffin of the whole charade. Jayden smiled sweetly at the lady behind the desk, made small talk and kept eye contact. It was a trait of their species for vampires to be charming, a useful trait when luring prey. Now Jayden used it to get her way, to get her schedule. With the paper in hand the props were in place and a whole new phases of the charade started. Leaving the office and stepping back out in to the hallway towards Angela Jayden felt a little less like running, she knew now she was going to see something new. School was something she’d often thought about and now with the prospect of seeing and partaking Jayden could hardly contain the smile. “Back.” she said cheerily, trying to keep her excitement to a minimum, as she approached Angela who was against the wall it seemed as if she were trying to blend with it.
As soon as the name left her mouth Jayden wanted to take it back. Why had she mentioned them? She hoped it wouldn’t draw attention to her, she hoped it wouldn’t alert them to her presence. Worriedly she glanced up and down the coridor as if the mere mention of their name would draw them. It was the same fear she had about another coven in their world, but her fear of those was far worst.
When Angela said she knew the Cullens Jayden almost bolted right then. She knew who her friend must be, Bella, the same girl whom Jayden had fought about with Edward on their first meeting. Bella knew the Cullen’s secret and Jayden knew would probably know her’s too, by now. That scared her. “My father knew their father.” Jayden said plainly and honestly. It was the most truth she could tell a human and still keep all their secrets. “Its just they don’t know I’m here and for now I think I should keep it that way. I should tell them myself.” Jayden said, hearing the truth in that statement too.

"Thank you too" Angela said with a smile as Jayden said that she was kind in giving her help this morning and had given her a good impression of people in Forks. "Most of the people here are nice and are glad to help you out if you need something. It's the good thing about small towns, its easy to know most everyone quickly" She told her.
When Jayden re-emerged from the office with a schedule in hand, Angela was surprised as she brought up the Cullens. Usually it took people a little longer to start talking about them when the first got there. In fact she'd wondered when she would have had time to spot them, which is why she asked if Jayden had already met them. The Cullens had just moved here a couple years ago, maybe they went to elementary school or something together.
"Oh yeah?" She asked interested as she spoke of how their fathers knew each other. "Is he a doctor too?" She asked interested then hoped that wasn't too personal of a question. She gave a polite smile however when Jayden said that she should tell the Cullens herself that she was there. "Thats okay, they wont find out from me. I'm sure they'll be glad to see you though when you do tell them"

The whole school could be filled with the world’s most helpful humans and Jayden still knew it would be very unlikely that she would ask anyone for help or even start conversation with them. It was part of her personal survival that she fade in to the background and not make an effort to stand out of be remembered. “I’m more of a wall flower type, I’m ok with keeping to myself.” she said hoping it didn’t sound elitist or rude to the girl that had spent the passed few minutes helping. “I guess I am a little shy.” She said hoping it would pass as a cover.
Bringing up the Cullens was probably not the smartest move, but she had to know if she was a friend of theirs. Knowing of Edward’s gift she knew it would be easy for him to see Jayden within the school if he over heard Angela’s thoughts.
“They worked together for a little while.” She said without lying or explaining the nature of the work, it was true her father had served the Volturi at the same time that Carlisle had. “No, not a doctor he’s more of an advisor.” she explained knowing her father would never have had the discipline that Dr Cullen had for human blood; none other of their kind did.
Jayden knew she should find the Cullens and tell them herself that she was attending school, she knew she should have told them before she turned up there. “Thank you Angela, I’m sure I’ll see them soon to tell them.” Although Jayden wasn’t going to seek them out, she knew it would only take a little time for them to cross paths or botice the others scent.

Angela smiled as Jayden described herself as more of the wallflower type and a little bit shy. It was nice hearing that they shared that in common. "It's okay, I am a little myself too" She said knowing that when she was around Jessica or Mike and Eric, it was easy for her to fade into the background and stay quiet. She didn't mind it at all, in fact most of the time it was more comfortable to not be the one having attention paid to them. Ben had helped break her out of that shell a bit, but he was still the only one she really sought attention from, and happily he gave it.
"Oh" Angela responded with interest as Jayden explained about her father working with Dr. Cullen, as some sort of advisor. She figured he must have an important job of some sort. She wondered if he was some sort of hospital administrator type, or maybe even he had been an advisor of Dr. Cullen's in medical school. The doctor was young enough that he probably hadn't graduated that long ago, and since he obviously wasn't old enough to actually father a child their age (unless he had been a teenage father), Jayden's father probably did have a good 10 years or so on Dr. Cullen, so it would be possible he had advised him in training.
"You're welcome" Angela responded as Jayden thanked her again and spoke of seeing the Cullen's soon. "I'm sure you'll see them before the day's done. Like I said small town, small school"

To Jayden it wasn’t just a matter of fading in or not wanting to be part of the group, for her it was a matter of survival and something she’d been doing since birth. It was more alien for Jayden to see people standing out, her father had raised her with a constant teaching of isolation and visible nature. She nodded to Angela, noting it was a human nature though she doubted it was for a similar reason as he own.
The interested response immediately had Jayden regretting the tidbit of information she’s let slip, she knew the job the Cullen father did in the town and was afraid this new girl would want to ask questions about her father. “It was a while ago.” She said hoping the time since her father and Carlisle had worked together would discourage any inquiry into the matter.
Seeing them was the problem, Jayden would be happier not to see them though she of course knew it was harder to hide her scent then her appearance. Luckily her hybrid nature seemed to confuse Alice, though she knew at least on girl’s mind would be covered with images of herself that Edward could easily see if he looked. “I’m sure they’re busy with classes, as I’ll be. I’m only here to look, so I may not stay the whole day.” She said already seeking a way out and knowing it was a terrible mistake to be there.
