Author's Note: Helloooo. I recently stumbled upon a forum topic, that surprise, surprise, mentioned me and my fics. But, it turned out, this was not a fanfic discussion topic, but a fanfic bashing topic. And they're newest punching bag? My other fic which some of you may have heard of, Amusment Parks with the Cullens. So, I'm sorry to be wasting space with this, but I just wanted to give a shout out to those fic bashers: Next time, I hope you have the courage and the decency to say it to my face! And that goes not only for my fics, but for whoever else you're going to flame behind their backs.

That miffed me that they were so eager to critique on a faraway forum, but they couldn't post a review to explain it to me. So why didn't they inform me of the errors I made? Surely that would help to improve the quality of my writing in the future. But, apparently, they wouldn't want the story to improve, because then what would they bash? I'm not going to say anything more about it, cause it just ticks me off worse.

Anyway.

Sorry about that. I just needed to get that out.

Author's Note 2: Gah. I feel like every time I post a chapter, I'm coming back from the dead. I'm am so SO sorry about the late updates; I've been having a lot of trouble getting on often :( That, and my inspiration faery likes to leave me hanging, and then laugh at my from a corner of the room. Sigh. Blame the faery (just kidding! Respect the faery. Haha)

Author Note 3: Oh and hey, if you don't want to read through all the songs, it's okay. I've changed some of the words, but I understand if you don't want to read through everything.

Author's Note 4: Anyway, Sorry about the wait, especially after that cliffie! Thanks for all the reviews!! I'll leave this author's note short, so you can hurry and find out the answers to these questions:

What is Aro doing in the Cullen's living room?

What will happen next?

Will Emmett be trialed for treason?

What the heck does Billy Black have to do with anything?

And most importantly:

WILL ARO SING??

P.s. Songs are in Italics, any actions during a script format segment are bracketed by two 1s, example (Edward: Why me?! 1bangs head against piano1)

Chapter 11 – Karaoke Time, Part Two

Or

Party Crashers

When we last saw the Cullens:

Emmett sings enthusiastically,

"The time has come
As Caius said
To talk of many things
This may be true
But I would rather stick to overthrowing kings!! HAH!"

It's easy to be royal
If you're already onion skinned
It isn't just my right
Even my left will be divine
The monarchy is waiting to go zing
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!"

Emmett beamed. "Top THAT, people!"

"Oh I'll try," a cold voice said, causing everyone to gasp and turn in their seats.

And now:

ARO OF THE VOLTURRI stood framed in the doorway, his face, mostly obscured by darkness, appeared to be a mask of livid rage.

Bella squeaked in fright and Edward, scowling moved to stand protectively in front of her. Shock was plain on the faces of all the Cullens. That and horror.

But then, Aro stepped into the light and they saw not rage, but evil glee upon his face.

"Ha, ha," Laughed Aro, "A fine show, I'm sure. But that's peasant stuff. A real ruler could beat that warbling in his sleep!"

"Pfft," Emmett snorted, his shock/horror overcome by righteous indignance. "You sure talk big."

"Pfft," Aro snorted right back. "I sing big too!" He stepped inside the spacious room, and inclined his head towards outside. "Marcus! Caius! Inside, if you would. Ha, ha! This shall be entertaining indeed!"

The Cullens watched with foreboding as Marcus and Caius stepped into the light, looking bored with the whole ordeal.

"You don't have the terror twins with you, do you?" Bella asked without thinking.

"Alas, no. My sweet Alec and Jane are busy with other things. So you just have us," Aro said.

"Why are you here?" Edward snarled. "You can't turn Bella!"

"Yes, you can!" Bella contradicted and made to step forward, but Edward blocked her.

"Ha, ha! Nonsense, nonsense," Aro disagreed. "We're are merely here…" He paused suspensefully.

"Because Aro was bored," Marcus interrupted dryly.

Aro's face fell for a millisecond, but regained his enthusiasm. "But! Luckily we came just in time to interrupt this…err…" He struggled for a word, "This… Blasphemy!!"

"Dude," Emmett said calmly. "No one can beat that last act."

Aro's eyes narrowed, then he sang in a powerful, though surprisingly high voice, "Anything I you can do I can do better I can do better"

"Hah!" Emmett barked.

Aro danced over to stand beside Emmett, crossing his arms over his chest and looking at him scathingly.

Aro: I can do anything better than you

Emmett: No you can't

Aro: Yes I can

Emmett: No you can't

Aro: Yes I can

There was a pause before everyone before everyone except for Aro and Emmett burst out into applause.

Aro and Emmett were eyeing each other with newfound respect.

"Not to shabby," Aro complimented Emmett.

Emmett blinked in surprise. "You're not to bad yourself."

Aro exploded. "NOT TOO BAD?! I BEAT YOU EVERY TIME!!"

"Not EVERY time!!" Emmett argued.

The Cullens and the Volterri exchanged glances. This had happened before. It would be a long night.

The Swan House

Charlie was bored. Sure, it was late at night and normally he would be in bed, but not this time. He couldn't fall asleep, so instead he was watching the football game. Why couldn't he sleep? Because his daughter Bella, was sleeping over at her boyfriend's house! Sure, sure, she was sleeping over with her boyfriend's sister, but they all lived in the same house, right?

Despite all his worrying, he could not do anything silly, like go over there or call her. He knew that would only upset her.

This worrying was driving him mad though! He had to do something… Charlie continued to think. What to do, what to do. His eyes wandered around the room until they settled on the phone. Perfect. He'd call Billy.

The Black house – Living room

Billy Black was up late, for a different reason than his friend Charlie. His reason was merely because he wanted to finish the engrossing book he was halfway through. His son, Jacob Black, was in the kitchen fixing them both a late night snack.

Billy had just started the forty-first chapter when he was startled out of his revelry by the phone ringing.

Jacob poked his head in the living room to see if Billy was getting it. Billy gave him a dismissive gesture and answered it.

"Hello?" Billy greeted curiously. Who could be calling so late?

"Billy?" The voice was unsure, but recognizable as Charlie's. "Sorry to call so late."

"Oh, no problem at all," Billy assured him, smiling. "I'm up anyway."

"Ok. Thanks, Billy," Charlie replied. "What's up?"

"Reading. You?"

"The game," Charlie said simply.

"What's got you calling this late?" Billy inquired.

"Oh, just needed something to keep my mind off Bella's sleepover," Charlie laughed at his own silliness.

"Bella's sleeping over?" Billy said. "That's wonderful. Good to know she's made some good friends."

"Yeah," Charlie agreed, still laughing a little, "Only that her boyfriend lives there is what concerns me."

Billy suddenly went rigid. "Boyfriend? You mean Cullen?"

"Um," Charlie sounded surprised at Billy's tone. "Yes, Edward Cullen. Billy? Billy, are you there?"

The Black House – Kitchen

"Boyfriend? You mean Cullen?"

Cullen. The surname made Jacob start. He poked his head into the living room again. From his earlier tone, it was obvious Billy was talking to Charlie, especially because they were talking about Bella.

Charlie's voice replied to Billy's question, muffled, so Jacob couldn't hear the reply.

But he knew it must have been Cullen. The suddenly rigid posture of his father assured him of that. He felt a sting of resentment towards Edward Cullen.

"Charlie?" Billy's voice now was tired sounding, almost as if he was about to drop off there and now. Jacob saw right through his dad's charade. "I have to go now. It was nice talking to you."

He waited as Charlie sadly agreed and bade him farewell. Then Billy hung up the phone, his eyes bright and uncannily alert for so late.

"Jacob," Billy said, eyeing his son. "What would you say to a late night mission?"

Jacob bit his lip warily. "Missions" were usually ridiculous… especially after the last episode with the wall scaling hair dryer, but… Bella was with Cullen. Having a slumber party no less. Billy's plan would most likely involve crashing said party.

"I'm in," Jacob smiled grimly.

Billy smiled. "Good, I'll explain the plan to you in the car."

"Car? Where are we going?" Jacob tipped his head inquisitively.

Billy started wheeling his wheelchair to the doors, calling over his shoulder, "To get reinforcements."

……………………………..

"You told him WHAT?!" Billy gasped, choking on the chips he'd bought while waiting for Jacob to get back from phase one of the mission.

Jacob gave a 'what can you do?' shrug. "It was the only thing I could think of to get him out here."

"He's coming?"

"Yes."

Billy paused a moment. "Are you sure we should have called the boy? Maybe the girl would have been a better one to bring into it first."

"No," Jacob said confidently. "If the boy is involved the girl will come, and in turn, the others will also follow."

"If you say so," Billy said, proud of his son's planning.

…………………………

Mike Newton shivered in the crisp Washington air. His jacket was too light for his taste. He knew this was a bad idea, but he was going anyway.

He actually hadn't heard all of what the threatening voice had said, because he the TV had been turned up to loudly. There was some mention of Bella, which made him focus enough to catch something about meeting 'them' in the alley if he ever wanted to see Bella again. After that, the voice had given him directions and hung up before Mike could inquire further.

There was nothing better to do, so he went.

Mike peered cautiously down the alley. As each second passed, the whole scheme seemed more and more ridiculous.

…but he really wouldn't like to never see Bella again…

He started down the dark ally. The darkness was so complete, he could hardly see where he was walking. In the center of the alley was a light, flickering on and off in a horror movie kind of way.

"Move into the light," Called a gruff voice, causing Mike to jump. Keeping Bella in mind, he obeyed. Now he could make out the figure of someone sitting in a chair just outside the light.

"Who the heck are you?" Mike asked. "And why are you sitting?"

"Don't SASS ME, BOY!" The voice barked. Then, into the light, rolled in none other than Billy Black, followed by his son Jacob Black.

Mike stared in surprise.

"Now here's what you have to do…" Billy began.

………………………………………………….

Back to the Cullens

…………………………..

Emmett was on the prowl for the next victim, err, singer, while Bella tried to back inconspicuously into a corner.

"Ha ha," Aro laughed gleefully, also surveying the other participants with an eager look. "Ah, I do love karaoke. Oh! Caius! Do you remember that time during our vacation to Japan! The first time I heard you sing. Yes, but it was lovely. Caius, my dear friend! You absolutely MUST sing for us!"

"Oh, I couldn't," Caius said dryly in a way that clearly meant 'wouldn't'.

"But you must, dear Caius!" Aro pleaded. "Only think of how sad we all will be should you deprive us of your angel tones."

"Really, you flatter me, but I must decline. Why don't we let Bella sing?" He added with a devious smile.

Aro didn't give up. "Yes, yes, we'll hear the girl later. But first, you, Caius. Come, friends, help me convince him!"

Everyone obediently clapped and called for him to step up. Caius scowled and remained in place.

Aro's face suddenly transformed into a terrible frightening mask. "Caius. NOW."

Though he still looked sulky, it seemed to be the push he need. He stepped up and put in some music.

When he began singing, Bella realized Aro was right, his voice was beautiful, and also deep, and a little scary combined with his interesting choice of lyrics.

Caius: America!

Let's go back to war and violence
I'm so bored with peace and SILENCE !
Nights of evil, filled with fear
Your worst dream, that's my idea of fun !
Let darkness find it's sad ways;
Let's go back to good old bad days
No more foolish acts of kindness
The Cullens and their kingdom will be mine !
Years from now, no one will bother
To recall your good friends Cullens
Because all of this will be mine !
This will all be mine !
I have a plan; it includes you

Caius paused to point to Bella, which made Edward glare, or course.

Caius: You, Isabella, will lead me to America!
Where I will claim all this is mine 1evil grin1
In the back of your Chevy, my men will all hide
You'll sit up front as the gates open wide
Now watch me create my vampiric army with pride !
Prepare for the dawning of a new age:
The Caius age !
Year One !

Suddenly a hoard of squirrels appeared in the room, lining up behind Caius while he hummed with the music. Then… they began chanting. Emmett watched in interest.

Squirrels: Bring on the darkness,

bring on the gloom,
We are the army of death and gloom
Bring on the darkness, bring on the gloom,
We are the army of death and gloom


Caius:

Only one will be revered,
Worshipped, hated, loved, and feared !
I'd just like to say a few words:
I, me, mine !
You were mistaken if you believed
Caius was someone who'd crumble and leave
Now I am back, and I will be staying this
time !

I told you once
I told you twice !
Everything you see before you
Every last bit of it will...
be...
mine !!

As the song ended, dead silence descended, save for the squirrels, who roared with applause and looked mighty pleased with themselves before disappearing. In the room, the room stared silently at Caius for a good ten minutes with expressions ranging from horror, fear, disbelief and delight.

"I didn't know you felt that way," Marcus finally said.

Aro beamed. "Ah, how lovely! Are you really planning on taking over America?"

Caius sighed in a long suffering way. "No, it's just a song."

Bella and the Cullens visibly relaxed.

"Yet," Caius added with a smirk, and Bella twitched.

"Ha ha!" Aro laughed, carefree. "Come, Bella! You must sing for us!"

"N-no, thankyou," Bella mumbled.

Aro looked saddened. "Oh, come now. Caius sang for the first time in many decades. Let us hear you."

Bella glanced at Edward, who motioned for her to go ahead. She hesitated.

Aro smiled sweetly. "I know. I'll sing with you!" He handed Alice a tape from his robe and she put it in, a knowing smile on her face.

Aro cleared his throat and sang: The only way to get what you want is to become a vampire yourself.Still unsure, Bella stepped out, remembering this song from the Little Mermaid, but not quite sure of the words. She glanced at the TV for assistance and concentrated on that to ignore those behind her.

Bella: Can you do that?

Aro:
My dear, sweet child. That's what I do. It's what I live for.
To help unfortunate mortals like yourself.
Poor souls with no one else to turn to.

I admit that in the past I've been a nasty
They weren't kidding when they called me, well, a vampire
But you'll find that nowadays
I've mended all my ways
Repented, seen the light, and made a switch
To this
And I fortunately know a how to turn one
It's a talent that I always have possessed
And dear lady, please don't laugh
I use it on behalf
Of the miserable, the lonely, and depressed (pathetic)

Poor unfortunate souls
In pain, in need
This one longing to live longer
That one wants to get the girl
And do I help them?
Yes, indeed
Those poor unfortunate souls
So sad, so true
They come flocking to my castle
Crying, "Venom, Aro, please!"
And I help them!
Yes I do

Now it's happened once or twice
Someone couldn't pay the price
And I'm afraid I had to rake 'em 'cross the coals
Yes I've had the odd complaint
But on the whole I've been a saint
To those poor unfortunate souls

Have we got a deal?

Bella began wondering if this was just the song or if Aro was being silly… it was hard to tell.

Bella:
If I become human, I'll never be with my father or mother again.

Aro:
But you'll have your man, ha ha. Life's full of tough choices, isn't it? Ha ha.
Oh, and there is one more thing.
We haven't discussed the subject of payment.

Bella:
But I don't have-

Aro:
I'm not asking much, just a token really, a trifle!
What I want from you is - your voice.

Bella:
But without my voice, how can I-

Aro:
You'll have your looks, your pretty face.
And don't underestimate the importance of inhuman speed, ha!Come on you poor unfortunate soul
Go ahead!
Make your choice!
I'm a very busy vampire and I haven't got all day
It won't cost much
Just your voice!
You poor unfortunate soul
It's sad but true
If you want to cross the bridge, my sweet
You've got the pay the toll
Take a gulp and take a breath
And go ahead and sign the scroll
Caius, Marcus, now I've got her, boys
The boss is on a roll
This poor unfortunate soul

Now, sing!

Bella:
Aah...

Aro:
Keep singing!

Bella:

Aaaaaah!

Aro backed off stage while Bella sang. "Ha ha, see? It's not so hard to get someone to sing."

"Hmmm," Edward mused, eyeing Aro suspiciously. Jasper was trying not to listen to the song in a corner. The Little Mermaid still gave him the creeps.

"Edward, you must sing now," Bella said, coming out of the center of attention, her face bright red.

"All right," Edward said agreeably, stepping out. "I dedicate this song to my Bella! Hit it, Emmett!"

Edward:

I thought love was only true in fairy tales

Emmett: Buh dum dum dum

Edward:

Meant for someone else but not for me.

Love was out to get me

Emmett: Duh duh duh da dah

Edward:

Oh, That's the way it seemed.
Disappointment haunted all my time.

Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer!

Edward suddenly drew Bella into the circle again and began dancing with her, while continuing to sing, smiling at her new blush.

Edward:
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I'm in love, I'm a believer!
I couldn't leave her if I tried.

I thought love was more or less a given thing,

Emmett: Buh dum dum dum

Seems the more I gave the less I got.
What's the use in tryin'?

Emmett: Duh duh duh da dah

All you get is pain.

Emmett: Duh duh duh da dah

When I needed overcast I got sun!

All the couples in the room suddenly whirled in the center joining in the wild dancing as Edward began the next chorus. Aro made Marcus dance with him.

Edward:
Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I'm in love, I'm a believer!
I couldn't leave her if I tried.

Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace of dou-

The music suddenly stopped along with all the power. Bella had only a second to wonder what was going on when suddenly the power was reconnected and music was starting from somewhere outside.

All the vampires and Bella moved off the stage nonplussed as the door open and the music got louder, and a strange group of people moved in, carrying a portable CD player and starting to sing. Bella could only watch in shock as the people took turns singing lines as they appeared in the room.

Mike, looking way too smug:

Here we come, walkin'

Down the street.

Jessica, giggling and hesitant:

We get the funniest looks from

Ev'ry one we meet.

Jacob, looking positively evil:

Hey, hey, we're the (party) CRASHERS

And people say we monkey around.

But we're too busy singing

To put anybody down.

Tyler, looking curious:

We go wherever we want to,

do what we like to do

Eric, worried:

We don't have time to get restless,

There's always something new.

All:

Hey, hey, we're the Crashers

And people say we monkey around.

But we're too busy singing

To put anybody down.

We're just tryin' to be friendly,

Come and watch us sing and play,

We're the young gneration,

And we've got something to say.

Any time, Or anywhere,

Just Look over your shoulder

Guess who'll be standing there

Jacob was somehow able to appear behind Bella shoulder at this point, popping up as he sang the words. Bella screamed and Edward and Emmett threw Jacob (gently) to the stage where the others now were.

All:

Hey, hey, we're the Crashers

And people say we monkey around.

But we're too busy singing

To put anybody down.

We're just tryin' to be friendly,

Come and watch us sing and play,

We're the young gneration,

And we've got something to say.

Hey, hey, we're the Crashers

Hey, hey, we're the Crashers

Silence. A squirrel hummed in the background (the squirrels had scared all the crickets off).

"Ha ha!" Aro finally broke the silence. "Delightful! What a bizarre surprise! Such strange mort-"

"What are you doing here?" Edward interrupted Aro, stepping forward.

Mike grinned. "We're crashing the party!"

"Why?" Edward asked, struggling to stay polite.

"We were paid," Jessica said bluntly.

Edward's eyes flashed to Jacob, but Jacob grinned and said, "Not Me!"

Edward read his mind. "Crafty old man," He grumbled.

"What should we do?" Carlisle asked too quietly for and humans to hear.

"Want me to take care of them?" Jasper asked grimly.

"OR ME!" Emmett said. "I want to arrest someone with my squirrels."

Carlisle looked alarmed.

"Oh, come on," Alice giggled. "Let them stay at least for karaoke. The more the merrier, right?"

Carlisle thought about it briefly and nodded. "So be it."

Mike was watching Aro. Aro was watching Mike. They stared. Mike turned away, but suddenly Aro was next to him.

"And who might you be?" He asked formally.

Mike coughed nervously. "Mike Newton, sir."

"Very good, Michael," Aro said. "You show bravery. You may stay."

"Oh no, sir, not Michael, you can just call me-"

"That will do, Michael," Aro said sternly, leaving no room for argument. Mike nodded meekly and Aro rejoined his group. "Well, who's next?"

The Crashers looked around nervously. They had crashed the party and suddenly were expected to stay. Jessica nudged Mike in the ribs and glanced to the door. Mike glanced at Aro, and Aro glared at him and moved to block the door. Mike shook his head at Jessica. They couldn't leave yet.

Alice broke the awkwardness by dancing forward into the center. The Crashers gratefully joined the crowd.

"Me and Jasper would like to do a song," Alice announced happily. "Play it, Carlisle."

Sweet music filled the room as Jasper stepped forward towards Alice, singing to her.

Jasper:

Look at the future tell me what do you see
Just close your eyes and describe it to me
The heavens are sparkling with starlight tonight
That's what I see through your eyes

Alice, taking his hand:
I see the heavens each time that you smile
I hear your heartbeat just go on for miles
And suddenly I know why life is worthwhile
That's what I see through your eyes
That's what I see through your eyes

Jasper:
Here in the night, I see the sun
Here in the dark, our two hearts are one
Its out of our hands, we can't stop what we have begun
And love just took me by surprise, looking through your eyes

Alice:

I see a night I wish could last forever
I see a world we're meant to see together
And it is so much more than I remember
More than I remember
More than I have known

Together:

Here in the night, I see the sun
Here in the dark, our two hearts are one
Its out of our hands, we can't stop what we have begun
And love just took me by surprise, looking through your eyes
Looking through your eyes

Everyone in the room felt their heart melt at the scene. Jessica glared at Mike and wondered what she had done to deserve someone who was so unromantic. The mortal boys in the room felt huge resentment toward Jasper suddenly for raising the standard so high.

"Beautiful!" Aro cried. "If I had tears, I would shed them for you. Brilliant! And now, brothers, Marcus, Caius, and Carlisle, you too, I think. Come forth. We shall sing together, for old times sake. Alice, dear, the music, if you will."

Aro and the three he called moved to stand beside him. They looked quite impressive and the mortals in the room all straightened their backs and tried to look like good people, afraid of bringing on the wrath of this foursome.

Aro, Marcus, Caius, and Carlisle:

United we stand
Now and forever
In truth, divided we fall

Hand upon hand
Brother to brother
No one shall be greater than all

United we stand
Now and forever
In truth, divided we fall


Hand upon hand
Brother to brother
No one shall be greater than all

Aro:

It's been ten years we celebrate
All that made our kingdom great
Liberty and Justice for all

Carlisle:
Each of us will now divide
In equal shares our countryside
Promising equality for all who reside!

All:
United we stand
Now and forever
In truth, divided we fall

Aro: Liberty!
Marcus: Justice!
Caius: Trust!

Hand upon hand
Brother to brother
No one shall be greater than all

All: .Shall be greater than all

Carlisle: Freedom!
Edward: Peace!
Suprisingly, Bella: Honour!

All: .No one greater than all

Esme: Goodness!
Emmett: Strength!
Jasper: Valour!

All: Shall be greater than . . .Allllllllllllllllllllllllllll!

The foursome threw their arms skyward in a dramatic finish. Wild applause broke out. Emmett, clapping, stepped out and motioned them to be gone. After looking slightly offended, the foursome decided not to make a scene.

"I have a very special song for you now," Emmett declared. "And I will only sing it if… you all DANCE! MWHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!"

Everyone exchanged hesitant glances and then nodded.

"What music, Emmett?" Carlisle asked, his hands hovering over the options.

Emmett looked at him seriously. "Carlisle, I'm afraid we don't have the music for it."

Carlisle looked slightly afraid.

Suddenly Emmett launched into a song that was not only not in the Cullen's extensive collection, but in another language entirely, one that the mortals in the room didn't even recognize.

To add to the random weirdness, and surprising everyone, Bella suddenly squealed, "THE NUMA NUMA SONG!" And started singing with Emmett.

Edward looked the most surprised of all.

But, true to their word, everyone started dancing, and with much enthusiasm, which was also surprising.

Emmett was so pleased by everyone's willingness to participate, that once he finished, he sang it again, faster. Everyone increased their pace dancing to keep up.

During the 3rd round, the inevitable happened. Bella tripped. Mike, who had been dancing close to Bella of course, tripped over her. Before Bella could get squished, Edward zipped her out of the way.

Though Bella was now out of the danger zone, it did not save the rest of the mortals, who tripped over Mike.

Emmett, seeing these events unfold, stopped singing and shouted, "DOG PILE!"

The mortals, except Jacob, who had been the only one to avoid tripping, screamed.

Luckily for them though, Carlisle and Jasper were able to restrain Emmett. The incident effectively ended Emmett's decidedly dangerous singing.

"Who shall sing next?" Aro asked.

(A/N: Jacob's gonna get out of character for a bit here. Please don't hate me)

Jacob stepped forward, a weird determined light in his eyes. "Me."

For some reason only mind readers know, Edward started snickering, which caused Aro to poke him and start snickering as well.

Jacob stepped onto the floor and pointed at Bella and began singing. He didn't dance, but he did jump around a lot dramatically.

Jacob:
Hey! Hey! You! You!
I don't like your boyfriend!
No way! No way!
I think you need a new one
Hey! Hey! You! You!
I could be your boyfriend

Hey! Hey! You! You!
I know that you like me
No way! No way!
You know it's not a secret
Hey! Hey! You! You!
I want to be your boyfriend

You're so fine
I want you mine
You're so delicious
I think about ya all the time
You're so addictive
Don't you know what I could do to make you feel alright?
Don't pretend I think you know I'm darn precious
And Hell Yeah
I'm the one and only prince
I can tell you like me too and you know I'm right

He's like so whatever
And you could do so much better
I think we should get together now
And that's what everyone's talking about!

Hey! Hey! You! You!
I don't like your boyfriend!
No way! No way!
I think you need a new one
Hey! Hey! You! You!
I could be your boyfriend

Hey! Hey! You! You!
I know that you like me
No way! No way!
You know it's not a secret
Hey! Hey! You! You!
I want to be your boyfriend

I can see the way, I see the way you look at me
And even when you look away I know you think of me
I know you talk about me all the time again and again
So come over here, tell me what I want to hear
Better yet make your boyfriend disappear
I don't want to hear you say his name ever again
And again and again and again!

Hey! Hey! You! You!
I know that you like me
No way! No way!
You know it's not a secret
Hey! Hey! You! You!
I want to be your boyfriend

Bella blushed furiously and looked annoyed. Mike looked admiring, as did Eric and Tyler. Edward looked both annoyed and amused. The others applauded, if not just for his courage alone.

Jacob himself was blushing at this point and retreated back to the crowd.

"Ha ha," Aro laughed. "Good job, young one!" Then Aro leaned down and whispered so Bella alone could hear. "Now it's your turn alone. You're going to prove your ability to keep our secret."

"How?" Bella gasped.

"By singing this," He whispered back and pushed her out.

Bella gulped and sang.

Bella:

Let me know that I've done wrong
When I've known this all along
I go around a time or two
Just to waste my time with you

Bella grabbed Edward's hand and pulled him out to stand with her.

Bella:
Tell me all that you've thrown away
Find out games you don't wanna play
You are the only one that needs to know

I'll keep it our dirty little secret
Don't tell anyone or

Ill be just another regret

Just another regret,

Hope that I can keep it
Our dirty little secret
Who has to know

When we live such fragile lives
It's the best way we survive
I go around a time or two
Just to waste my time with you

Tell me all that you've thrown away
find out games you don't wanna play
you are the only one that needs to know

I'll keep it our dirty little secret
Dirty little secret
Don't tell anyone or I'll be just another regret
Just another regret, hope that I can keep it
Your dirty little secret
Your dirty little secret


Who has to know?
Who has to know?

The Volterri laughed as she finished and the Cullens applauded and chuckled. The humans in the room clapped, confused about her song choice and word changes.

Before they could question it, Esme interrupted. "We'd like to do a song for the couples now. Everyone's free do dance and sing along." The music started.

Song, with random people singing at different times:

Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night, it's only right
To think about the girl you love and hold her tight
So happy together

If I should call you up, invest a dime
And you say you belong to me and ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be, so very fine
So happy together

I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

So happy together
How is the weather
So happy together
We're happy together
So happy together
Happy together
So happy together
So happy together (ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba)

Let's see how all the couples are doing shall we?

Emmett danced with Rosalie in some sort of strange dance that looked like some kind of cross between Square Dancing and Modern. Rosalie rolled her eyes, but smiled.

Edward had Bella step on his feet like they had at the prom and swirled around the room.

Awkwardly, the Jessica and Mike danced in a modern way that made them feel out of place, as Esme and Carlisle, and Alice and Jasper were doing a formal ballroom dancing type of thing.

Aro and a highly disgruntled Caius also spun around the room in a fast paced Ballroom dance, Aro laughing wildly and shouting about how he hadn't had so much fun since the time in Canada with the water balloons and jetpacks.

Tyler and Eric were determinedly not looking at each other.

Some distance away, Marcus and Jacob leaned against the wall, looking bored. Jacob watched Bella, wishing he could dance too… maybe if he could get a partner to dance with him closer to the pair, he could ask Edward if he could step in…

Jacob turned to Marcus. "Hey dude, wanna dance?"

Author's note: MWHWHAHAHAHAHA!! I love imagining Jacob asking Marcus to dance.

Disclaimer: Twilight doesn't belong to me. Neither do the songs, which belong to Disney, Oldies singers, The Quest for Camelot people (if you haven't seen that movie, you should. Its one of the best little kid movies ever. Mwhahaha), Avril something…(I don't really listen to her music, but I've seen that one song on youtube for anime music videos so many times. It's funny) and All American Rejects (ditto on the note for Avril)
