Don't blame me!! Blame finals!!!! I'm sorry it's been forever. If there were an award for worst updater I would certainly win first prize. But, now it's summer!! And I will be updating BOTH of my stories more frequently. Thanks for hanging in there!!

I tried to distract Edward long enough on the porch while Alice grabbed both dresses and hid them in their appropriate spots. Not that I minded of course...

Edward pushed my back against the wooden stairs pressing his body to my own as his lips forcefully yet passionately caressed my own. His hands began to wonder on his own accord lingering all over my now brutally hot body.

I heard a soft coughing noise behind me and disattached my mouth from Edward's staggering back a bit causing Edward to hit his head on the edge of the stairs.

"What the H-" Edward started rubbing his head on instinct. I doubted it actually hurt, we were practically stone however I did feel bad.

"Sorry" I giggled rubbing his his forehead a bit.

Alice laughed from behind us as I remembered why I pulled away in the first place.

"I leave you two alone for two seconds and your practically stripping on the stairs."

she giggled.

"Alice, do you see me interrupting you and Jasper? Hm? No, because that would be defined as rude, something of which I try my best not to pursue." Edward said through gritted teeth.

"Touchy, touchy...My, my Eddie. I just came here to inform BELLA that I hid her dress in the place we discussed earlier." she said hiding the gleam in her eye from Edward, no doubt blocking her thoughts as well.

"Thank you, Alice! Oh, I can't wait to wear it for the wedding! It's going to look so beautiful!" I added with emphasis suppressing the laugh stuck in my throat.

"Dress? So, you did find one. And you're not going to show me?" Edward said inching closer to me boring his puppy dog eyes into mine.

As hard as it is to resist those, I had to. "Nope, not a chance. And if you going looking for it Edward Anthony you better hope I do not come looking for you." I threatened with a smug smile giving him a quick peck on the lips and heading back into the house.

"Did she really just threaten me?" I heard Edward ask Alice from outside.

"Yup, get used to it brother. Welcome to the world of the wed." She said giggling and patting Edward back while she walked passed and winked heading upstairs to Jasper.

Edward's POV

"Nope, not a chance. And if you going looking for it Edward Anthony you better hope I do not come looking for you." Bella stated giving me a quick kiss and heading inside the house swaying her hips seductively.

"Did she really just threaten me?" I whispered, mostly to myself.

"Yup, get used to it brother. Welcome to the world of the wed." Alice said from next to me while she too headed inside.

I simply sat there, shocked. Did I finally lose my ability to dazzle her? I had a feeling this day would come...

But I had to see that dress. Curiosity always took the better of me. I hated feeling as if I was forbidden from knowing something, it always tugged at me until I found out what secret had been kept from me.

Bella would most likely be furious...but it would just be a peak, and she didn't have to know I looked at it. However l couldn't lie to Bella...

Unless I told her...after the wedding. I would just have to keep her off the subject until then. It would be somewhat of an omission. Deep within me I knew what I was going to do was wrong, but I was out of control. I couldn't stop this raging curiosity that held me. I NEEDED to know what it looked like so I couldn't imagine how stunning she would look in it.

Now to actually hide it...Alice was extremely cunning when it came from hiding things from me and no doubt she would see me looking for it. I couldn't do this alone. If I were going to do it, I needed a partner, someone that had experience with this art of scheme.

Then it struck me as the one person who I knew was bold enough to help me came out of the woods and sank into the stairs next to me.

"Hey man, what's going on?" Emmett asked nudging my shoulder with his own.

"Hey, Em. Feeling up to a scavenger hunt?" I asked smiling deviously at him.

Emmett turned his head and raised his right eyebrow as a sly smile crept upon his face.
