Chapter One: The Invitation
"All right class! The Advanced Placement Biology course has come to an end. I genuinely hope that all of you enjoyed this class--"
I rolled my eyes as our Biology teacher, Mr. Shumway, continued to ramble on about how he wish that we all "had an extraordinary learning experience in AP Biology this year"
Honestly, the only fun that I had all year in his class was sharing secretive nudges with Edward. I felt my cheeks heat up as Edward's impossibly handsome face flashed in my mind.
Next to me, I heard Edward chuckle.
"What's wrong, Bella?" Edward teased. "Is the class too boring?"
I tossed him an annoyed glance and replied, "Don't tell me that you aren't bored with all his 'oh, you guys have been the best class I've ever had' speech. I mean seriously, why do we have to go through this kind of torture at the end of every year?"
"Hang in there, Bella, we've only got 10 minuets left," Edward told me. "Oh, and by the way, I've got to ask you something important after school today. Can you come over?"
"Sure," I responded, instantly intrigued.
Finally, the bell rang, and Edward took my hand as we quickly headed towards the parking lot.
Edward led me to his house after the supposedly long drive, but with Edward's insane and reckless driving skills, we arrived to his house rather quickly. He slipped an arm around my waist and pressed his snow-cold lips against my hair, "You're going to love the news" he murmured huskily.
He opened the door for me and I was instantly greeted by Alice Cullen.
"Hi Bella!" she greeted me.
"Hey," I smiled, reaching over to give Alice a hug.
Alice instantly pulled back and placed a hand up, "I haven't gone hunting in weeks," she pointed out giving me a crooked smile.
I let out a laugh, "Okay, so what's the news?" I asked, tossing a glance at Edward who was leaning against the wall.
"In the living room," Alice ordered as she tolled me into the enormous room.
Edward pulled me onto his lap when we were seated comfortably on the sofa.
"Guess what, guess what?!" Alice exclaimed as her tawny eyes were glistening with excitement.
"Um…you're going to take me on another extremely painful shopping trip?" I guessed.
"No, silly! We're going to Hawaii for vacation, and you're coming with us!" Alice sounded like one of those flighty and squeaky cheerleaders at my old school.
"You…me…Hawaii…huh?" I was positive my month was hanging open.
After I got over my initial shock, I told Alice nervously, "But Charlie would never let me."
"Oh, don't worry about Charlie, he's going to let you come with us. I saw it in one of my visions," Alice answered with a smile plastered on her beautiful face.
"I bet you did," I muttered.
"Okay, so, we're leaving in about a week. I'll bring over the new clothes that I got you last time and we'll--"
"Slow down a little, Alice!" Edward interrupted with a laugh. "It's hard to understand what you're saying when you talk so fast."
I glanced at the clock hanging on the wall. It indicated that it was already 6:30. I've got to get home and cook dinner. Charlie would be coming home soon!
"Er, I've got to go now. It's getting pretty late," I informed the two exquisite vampires.
"Come on, I'll give you a ride," Edward offered.
"But it's only 6:30!" Alice complained, but her pouting face was cut short by the face Edward gave her. "Fine. I'll tell you the details tomorrow. Goodnight, Bella!"
She blew a kiss to me, and left the room sulkily.
On the way home, Edward took my hand in his and wrapped his cold fingers around mine, "You didn't sound too excited," he said.
It took me a couple seconds to register what he meant, "Oh, no, I was just kind of in shock," I said, "I'm actually quiet excited!"
"Excited to trip all the way?" Edward teased, chuckling.
I rolled my eyes and huffed, "Whatever," I muttered.
We stopped talking for a minute and upfront the green light turned yellow. I half expected Edward to race past it, but another half I expected him to slow the vehicle down. I tossed Edward a frantic look and tightened my grip on his hand.
Edward smirked and pressed on the gas, causing the car to race forward. Before he reached the light stop, the light turned red. I slanted him a horrified look.
"Edward, stop! It's a red light!" I exclaimed as I pointed forward, "We're going to crash and die, Edward!" I shrieked.
Yet, that didn't stop him.
Instead he said calmly, "We'll make it,"
He pressed the gas another time and the car flew by the crossroad, receiving many yells and honks from the drivers.
Edward instantly slowed down and smiled down at me, "That wasn't so bad, now was it?"
"So bad?" I was hyperventiliating, "That was horrible! Why do you always do that?"
Edward laughed and kissed my palm.
"It gives me great pleasure," he said.
I rolled my eyes once more, "Yeah, to get us both killed."
Edward gave me one of his dazzling smiles and turned off the engine, "We're here."
I glanced towards the house. The lights weren't on, which meant that Charlie wasn't home yet.
I unbuckled my seatbelt, and felt Edward's fingers gently coax my chin to his face. He leaned in slowly, and pressed his lips to mine, giving me a passionate kiss. I felt my heart quicken its pace. I ignored the pounding of my heart, and pressed my body into Edward's. I could feel his arm tightening its grip on my back as I ran my fingers through his incredibly soft, bronze hair. I knew I was clearly crossing the boundary that he had drawn for our physical relationship, but Edward didn't seem to notice. He used his free hand to memorize my face as he continued to caress my lips tenderly.
As abruptly as he had started the kiss, he stopped. He gently yet forcefully pulled my face away from his.
I was still trying to catch my breath when he whispered, "I guess you should head in now."
I took a deep breath and asked, "Are you coming over?"
Edward nodded, "Later tonight," he promised, brushing his lips against my mouth again. "See you later."
I nodded and got off the car, my heart racing with excitement.
Ten minutes after I reached home, I heard the front door open.
"Bella, I'm home!" I heard Charlie call.
"I'm in the kitchen!" I yelled back, wiping my wet hands on my jeans.
Charlie entered the kitchen and patted his large stomach, "I'm beat, what are we having today?" he asked me, washing his hands in the sink.
"Um- curry," I said, opening the silver pot to let him see.
Charlie nodded in approval, "Edward's not coming over?" he asked.
I shook my head, "No," I waited a second. "Hey, Dad, speaking of Edward," I began.
Charlie leaned against the sink, waiting for me to continue.
I wasn't too sure how to ask him. Even though Alice said that Charlie would agree, but it doesn't mean it's always true. So I decided to take another road that has a high possibility to have him to agree with my plans to Hawaii.
"Alice wants to take me to Hawaii for a couple days, is that alright?" it seemed simple and easy enough.
Charlie frowned, "To Hawaii," he echoed.
I nodded, and murmured, "If that's… okay…"
Charlie twisted his face in thought, "For how long?"
"I don't know I didn't get details because it was already 6:30" I replied.
Charlie sighed, "Just the two of you?" he asked in a rather skeptical tone.
In my mind, I was quickly debating with myself weather I should mention the fact that Edward and the family were coming too. I wasn't too sure if he thought Edward's family coming would be a better idea or not. Maybe he thought two girls going to an island so far away wasn't the best idea. I secretly groaned and I decided to tell him the truth.
"Edward and his family are coming too," I say, I clenched the spoon in my hand tightly.
Charlie ran a hand through his greasy hair, "Well-"
I pursed my lips, waiting for his response.
Finally Charlie nodded, "Alright, as long as Carlisle and Esme are going,"
I nodded, "Okay, thanks dad!"
Truth to be told, I wasn't too sure if they're even coming. But I decided to leave out that fact in case Charlie changed his mind.
Later that night, I showered and brushed my teeth around eight o'clock. I peered into the living room where Charlie is watching his football game.
"Good night Charlie," I called.
"Going to sleep so soon?" he asked me.
"Yeah. It's been a long day," I answered.
I quickly slipped into my room and shut the door quietly behind me. Edward lay on my bed, his feet dangling off the edge of my bed post.
"Hello, Bella," he greeted.
I smiled and walked towards him. He sat up instantly and I set myself on his lap, wrapping my arms around his neck. Edward pressed his lips against my temple.
"Charlie said yes," I announced.
Edward smiled against my temple.
"I know," he smirked.
I playfully slapped his back, "You filth, you were reading his mind again, weren't you?" I accused.
Edward's smile remained on his lips.
I rolled my eyes, and murmured, "Details?"
"Alice insists on telling you herself," Edward responded, "She can tell you tomorrow,"
Edward stood up, and gently placed my on my bed, pulling the quilt over me. He lay down besides me, and I leaned into his chest.
My vision slowly blurred as I closed my heavy lids. The last thing I knew, Edward's lips were pressed against my head, and then I let the darkness take over.
