This is just totally random, and it has nothing to do with Edward's Birthday Surprise. I'm actually in the process of writing another story, my take on breaking dawn... with the BD quotes of the day :D. Anyway, this little scene you are about to read totally got stuck on my mind. It's a bit out of character but I enjoyed it. Actually, it originated from a note that my friend and I were passing each other as if we were edward and bella, silly I know. but this is how it came to be. you can see the note on my profile page, i added the links there.
another thing, this isn't completed, actually this was apart of the first chapter of my new story, but it didn't fit...
hope you enjoy and be on the lookout for my new story to be posted sometime this week. thanks again for the wonderful comments!
:Random Scene. Totally random!:
"What are we doing today?" I asked.
"What would you like to do?" Edward raised his eyebrow.
"Hmm... I don't know. Anything really."
"Well, then anything it is." he chuckled.
A sudden thought entered my head, my lips forming a mischievous smile. It's not like me, but the past few days I've been trying to do things differently just to experience the "teenage" behavior, well in this case right now it's quite childish.
Edward seeming to feel the change of atmosphere, looked at me curiously, patiently waiting.
"I've decided... we should play a game." I said carefully.
His expression became amused. "A game? And what kind of game are we playing exactly?"
"Well, I've decided not to talk today..."
His eyebrows pulled together in confusion. "...and why on earth not?"
"Just because? I don't know... just experimenting, I guess."
Edward scrutinized my face while I deliberated.
"Well, it's nothing in particular. I just want to see how long I can go without talking."
He frowned at me. "Oh I see..."
"This is just for entertainment purposes!" I added. "It's just for fun."
"Right." His expression composed. His lips quickly turned into a brilliant smile. "You said you wanted to see how long you can go without speaking, correct?"
My eyes were fixed on his face suspiciously. "Yeah, that is the idea."
"So, what about my part in the game?"
"Um. Depends, I guess. Either you try to get me to talk or how long you can go without me talking..."
"I can do that," he said confidently. "Well then, let your game start."
"Uh-huh." was my response. "Right then. I'm not talking in five, four, three, two, one."
Ten minutes later, we were sitting at the kitchen table. Staring at each other. It seemed like forever. I made a face. This isn't fun anymore, why on earth did I think this would be fun?
Edward laughed at my expression. He smiled as if he could read my thoughts.
We stared at each other for the longest ten minutes of my life.
"Do you give in yet?" his lips pressed tightly together, like he was trying to hold back from laughing again.
I shook my head, smiling.
His eyes smoldered as he gently reached for my hand, softly stroking my palm. Nu-uh, I'm not giving in that easily.
I managed to put on my serious face and kept staring at him.
He suddenly made a face, his eyes narrowed. "How long are you going to be like this?"
Edward's eyes widen with a hint of sadness. "Please, Bella. I can't stand this."
I sighed. Nope, don't give in, I thought to myself and shook my head again.
He thought for a moment, suddenly putting on his poker face.
"Alright, I have a proposition for you…" he said very professionally, as if he were at a business meeting.
"You can either talk now," I rolled my eyes as he said this, "…or I won't talk at all as well." He smirked.
NO FAIR! He totally cheated. I narrowed my eyes and pouted, he knew he won, oh little did he know I wasn't going to give up so easily.
I put on my serious face again but before I did I couldn't help but stick out my tongue like a kid at him. This took him by surprise.
Edward's eyebrows furrowed, his face had a shocked expression, but he quickly changed back to the poker face.
I waited in silence, so far so good.
"I find this silence quite dreadful, don't you?"
I shook my head in response.
He sighed and thought for a moment, his eyes brightly filled with amusement now.
"Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner…" he started to say very seriously, as he continued, "…that's what I truly like to be...and I don't know the rest, but let me enlighten you with some other jingles."
Holy Crow. Hearing Edward trying to recite the Oscar Meyer song in a serious tone was too funny. I pressed my lips together trying hard from not laughing.
He grinned. "There once was a bat…. Who flew by a cat…."
I shook my head again. That isn't a jingle.
He sighed once more, his face becoming serious again.
"Alright, you win. Can you please speak now, I don't think my sanity can take this anymore." He pleaded.
I grinned. "I finally beat you at something."
"Aye me…she speaks." he said in a soft amused voice.
"O, speak again, bright angel, for thou art as glorious to this night…"
I rolled my eyes, but my heart accelerated and my knees were weak by the sound of his velvety voice reciting Romeo's lines. Edward knowing what he did smiled victoriously.
