Chapter 8: The Party

Bella's POV

We had just made it home and Edward was still begging to see the wedding dress. I kept saying no and I kept getting more and more annoyed. "Edward," I finally said, "I said that you can not see the dress. It is bad luck to see the wedding dress before the wedding. Don't you know that? Well, even if it was a law that you had to see the wedding dress, I would still say no. I don't want you to see it and that is final so stop bugging me about it." I was shocked. I had never said something like that to Edward before. Edward was shocked too because he stopped asking me and started to try to read the other girls minds. That was unsuccessful too.

I laughed and made my way up to Edward and my room. "Bella," I heard Alice asked at my door, "Can we come in?" I used my power to open the door and they walked in. them being Alice, Rosalie, Esme, Angel, Natasha and Raven. "Wow Alice that is the first time you've asked to come in. Normally you just come right in." I said laughing. She growled at me in response. That made the others in the room crack up with laughter. "Alice, I can't believe you yelled at Jasper. I have never seen you yell at him." Rosalie said after everyone was quieter than before. I was shocked. "Alice, you yelled at Jasper?" I asked. She nodded. "He was bugging me so much that I couldn't take it." She said in an annoyed voice. We all laughed.

"So Natasha, how did Bella know you were in trouble?" Esme asked. I looked at Esme shocked. This was not like her. "Well, I changed Bella and for some reason, Bella knows when I'm in trouble. Her eyes will turn the same color blue as mine were and are. They were this color blue when I was human and they turn this color blue when I think about Bella." Natasha answered naturally. "Oh, Bella, I invited the rest of my coven to the wedding is that ok?" she asked me. I nodded. "I'm always happy to see everyone. And I want to see how Rosalie will react with Rose." I said smiling at Natasha, Angel, and Raven. Alice suddenly stopped and we knew she was having a vision.

When she came back to us, she was laughing so hard. "Alice, what is so funny?" I asked. "Well, I know how Rose and Rosalie are going to react to each other." She said in between gasps for air. I couldn't help but laugh. "Hey, Bella, do you want to have a girl's party tonight?" Alice asked me. I nodded. I was thinking the same thing. "The guys are taking Edward to a tonight and after that, they are going to go hunting for the weekend so we will have the house alone tonight." I was stunned. "A ? Are you serious?" I asked Alice. She nodded and shrugged her shoulders. "It was Emmet's idea." Alice said looking at Rosalie. "Hey, I had nothing to do with this." She said. "We know. We are just trying to figure out why you married him." Esme said.

I laughed. That was not something anyone would expect from Esme. I looked over at Rosalie and saw her mouth wide open. That was the last straw. I couldn't keep it in any longer. I laughed so hard that I thought that I was about to die. The next thing I knew, I was hit with a pillow. I looked up and saw Rosalie quickly trying to throw the pillow, but it was too late. I pick one up and hit her in the face. Alice soon joined in followed by everyone else. Edward came up to see what all the noise was and got smacked with a pillow. After he was hit, he told the guys it was time to go. He said that we were all going to smack them with pillows. We had stopped to hear what he was saying to others and then we all laughed as soon as we heard his Volvo pull away.

"So Bella, it's time to get ready for the party." Alice said cheerfully, I sighed and nodded. With that I was pulled into my bathroom where Alice and the others worked on my hair and face and clothes. "Bella, I found the perfect outfit for you to wear to the club tonight." Esme said excitedly. I walked out to find that she was holding a black halter top and a pair of black jeans. "Oh, Bella, now I know how to do your makeup. Tonight you will be gothic." Rosalie said jumping up and down. After I was pulled back into my bathroom, Rosalie began to work on my makeup while Alice and Raven worked on my hair. They thought it would be perfect to leave my hair down, but curl it. Angel got out black dangling earrings and a black choker.

After I was done, I looked in my mirror. I had to admit, I looked beautiful. All the black looked perfect on my white skin. I really looked like a gothic person. I turned and gave everyone a big hug and told them that they all had five minutes to get ready. They all ran to their rooms and were back in my room in about 3 minutes. Alice had on the same thing as me only a red shirt and dark blue jeans. Rosalie had on a black leather skirt that was really short and a strapless black shirt. Esme had a purple short sleeve shirt and jeans. The others were wearing dresses. They were all very short but beautiful.

We wanted to make a great entrance so we took Raven's black mustang convertible. When we got in, Alice told Raven to put in a C.D. and told me to sing. I said no about 50 times but she finally won and Raven put in my mixed C.D. the first song was called I Am by Hilary Duff.

I'm an angel, I'm a devil
I am sometimes in between
I'm as bad it can get
And good as it can be
Sometimes I'm a million colors
Sometimes I'm black and white
I am all extremes
Try figure me out you never can
There's so many things I am

I am special
I am beautiful
I am wonderful
And powerful
Unstoppable
Sometimes I'm miserable
Sometimes I'm pitiful
But that's so typical of all the things I am

I'm someone filled with self-belief
And haunted by self-doubt
I've got all the answers
I've got nothing figured out
I like to be by myself
I hate to be alone
I'm up and I am down
But that's part of the thrill
Part of the plan
Part of all of the things I am

I am special
I am beautiful
I am wonderful
And powerful
Unstoppable
Sometimes I'm miserable
Sometimes I'm pitiful
But that's so typical of all the things I am

I'm a million contradictions
Sometimes I make no sense
Sometimes I'm perfect
Sometimes I'm a mess
Sometimes I'm not sure who I am

I am special
I am beautiful
I am wonderful
And powerful
Unstoppable
Sometimes I'm miserable
Sometimes I'm pitiful
But that's so typical of all the things I am

I am special
I am beautiful
I am wonderful
And powerful
Unstoppable
Sometimes I'm miserable
Sometimes I'm pitiful
But that's so typical of all the things I am
Of all the things I am
Sometimes I'm miserable
Sometimes I'm pitiful
But that's so typical of all the things I am
Of all the things I am

Alice and everyone cheered when I was done. "Hey, Bella, do you want to do our Linkin Park thing?" Raven asked. I laughed and nodded. She changed it to number 10 which was In the End by Linkin Park. This was one of my favorite songs. "Bella, I'm confused." Alice said looking at me. "Just listen." I said. She nodded and the song started.

(It starts with)
One thing / I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
All I know
time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
It's so unreal
Didn't look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on / but didn't even know
Wasted it all just to
Watch you go
I kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all fell apart
What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
One thing / I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme
To remind myself how
I tried so hard
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I'm surprised it got so (far)
Things aren't the way they were before
You wouldn't even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me
In the end
You kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all fell apart
What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There's only one thing you should know
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There's only one thing you should know
I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

When the song was over, we had arrived at the club. I still couldn't believe I had agreed to come so willingly. I had made a big deal about singing, but I put up no fight when Alice said where we were going. I guess it was because I knew I wasn't going to win that fight, or maybe it was because I didn't care as long as I was hanging out with my family. I was still trying to think when we walked into the club. I heard the music and recognized it as a Nightwish song. "Bella, this is Beauty of the Beast by Nightwish!" Raven yelled. I realized that we had to yell to hear each other even with our super hearing. Before I knew it, I was singing and dancing and have a great time.

Long Lost Love

Trees have dropped their leaves,
Clouds their waters

All this burden is killing me

Distance is covering your way,

Tears your memory
all this beauty is killing me

Oh, do you care,

I still feel for you

So aware,

What should be lost is there

I fear I will never find anyone

I know my greatest pain is yet to come

Will we find each other in the dark

My long lost love

One More Night to Live

Safely away from the world

In a dream, timeless domain

A child, dreamy eyed,

Mother's mirror, father's pride

I wish I could come back to you

Once again feel the rain

Falling inside me

Cleaning all that I've become

My home is far but the rest it lies so close

With my long lost love under the black rose

You told I had the eyes of a wolf

Search them and find the beauty of the beast

All of my songs can only be composed of the greatest of pains

Every single verse can only be born of the greatest of wishes

I wish I had one more night to live

A saint blessed me, drank me deeply

Spitting out the misery in me

Still a sinner rapes 1000 saints

Sharing the same hell with me

Sanest choice in the insane world...

Beware the beast but enjoy the feast he offers

Christabel

"Oh, sweet Christabel. Share with me your poem.

For I know now, I'm a puppet on this silent stage show.

I'm but a poet who failed his best play.

A Dead Boy, who failed to write an ending

To each of his poems."

When the song was over, I looked around me to see that no one else was dancing. They were all staring at me with their mouths wide open. I looked at the D.J. and saw Raven give him a C.D. and told him to put it on song number 12. I was then handed a microphone and pushed up to the stage. I glared at Raven and thought to her, Get your ass up here now. You are singing with me. She sighed and walked up beside me as the song began. It was Savin' Me by Nickelback.

Prison gates won't open up for me
On these hands and knees I'm crawlin'
Oh, I reach for you
Well I'm terrified of these four walls
These iron bars can't hold my soul in
All I need is you
Come please I'm callin'
And oh I scream for you
Hurry I'm fallin', I'm fallin'

Chorus:
Show me what it's like
To be the last one standing
And teach me wrong from right
And I'll show you what I can be
Say it for me
Say it to me
And I'll leave this life behind me
Say it if it's worth saving me

' s won't open up for me
With these broken wings I'm fallin'
And all I see is you
These city walls ain't got no love for me
I'm on the ledge of the eighteenth story
And oh I scream for you
Come please I'm callin'
And all I need from you
Hurry I'm fallin', I'm fallin'

Chorus

Hurry I'm fallin'

All I need is you
Come please I'm callin'
And oh, I scream for you
Hurry I'm fallin', I'm fallin', I'm fallin'

Chorus

Hurry I'm fallin'

When the song was done everyone was cheering fro me. I looked over at Raven a realized that her microphone was turned off. I glared at her and walked off the stage and back over to Alice and the others. Raven smiled weakly and followed. "Bella, do you want to go to the mall? It's open all night tonight. Some important sale. Do you want to go?" Alice asked. I nodded and we all walked out into the fresh air. I took and unneeded breath and followed Raven to her car. I got in the front and up the top down. I quickly turned to music off before another song could come on. "Hey, this is my car. I want to listen to music." Raven snapped and turned it back on to Photograph by Nickelback. I began singing even though I said that I wasn't going to sing the rest of the night.

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh
How did our eyes get so red
And what the hell is on Joey's head

And this is where I grew up
I think the present owner fixed it up
I never knew we'd ever went without
The second floor is hard for sneaking out

And this is where I went to school
Most of the time had better things to do
Criminal record says I broke in twice
I must have done it half a dozen times

I wonder if It's too late
Should I go back and try to graduate
Life's better now then it was back then
If I was them I wouldn't let me in

Oh oh oh
Oh god I

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

Remember the old arcade
Blew every dollar that we ever made
The cops hated us hangin' out
They say somebody went and burned it down

We used to listen to the radio
And sing along with every song we know
We said someday we'd find out how it feels
To sing to more than just the steering wheel

Kim's the first girl I kissed
I was so nervous that I nearly missed
She's had a couple of kids since then
I haven't seen her since god knows when

Oh oh oh
Oh god I

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

I miss that town
I miss the faces
You can't erase
You can't replace it
I miss it now
I can't believe it

So hard to stay
Too hard to leave it

If I could I relive those days
I know the one thing that would never change

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh
Every time I do it makes me

"Bella," Raven started when the song was over, "I thought you weren't going to sing anymore." I looked at her and growled. "Isabella Marie Cullen don't you growl at her." Esme said. I looked back and sighed. There was no way I could argue with her. She was like my mom and I knew it. When we got to the mall, Alice dragged us straight to a clothing store to pick me out some knew clothes. It was funny because the clothing she was grabbing was for women that were pregnant. "Alice, why are you over in this section?" I asked after she had grabbed about 50 items.

All she did was look at me and smiled. "Bella, you and going to get pregnant and I just want you to be ready." Alice said going back to randomly grabbing clothing. I just stood there shocked. I was pregnant? Well I knew I wasn't yet, but I was going to be. I knew better than to bet against Alice.
