AN: DON'T READ UNLESS YOU KNOW THE END OF ECLIPSE!! I DON'T WANT TO SPOIL ANYTHING!
I got this idea because I was wondering what Bella was going to do over the rest of the summer since she had quit working at Newton's Outfitters in anticipation of being turned soon after graduation. I thought it would be cool if she went out and tried new things before she didn't have a chance anymore.
You don't get a second chance at humanity, Bella. I'd been thinking about that statement for a while. It was nice actually, to have the leisure to think about more trivial things like this since I didn't need to worry about Victoria and her army of newborns anymore.
I still had over a month and a half before the wedding, and I had done my best to stay as far away from Alice's planning as possible. Ugh. I did have a lot of free time though, since I had quit my job at Newton's Outfitters before school ever ended. Maybe I needed a hobby, something that would fill my time when I wasn't busy with Charlie or one of the Cullens. Times like right now.
I had insisted Edward go hunting for the week with Carlisle and Jasper, telling him there was no reason for him to be anxious. Victoria was dead, the Volturi were most likely not going to pop up anytime soon. Normally, I would have spent time with Alice, but as I said, I was staying as far far away from wedding plans.
Still, it seemed like a waste, I was spending my last several weeks as a human laying on my bed staring that the ceiling. You would think I would be able to find something a little more productive to be occupying my time.
Wait! That was it! Instead of sitting around doing nothing, I should be doing things that I would never again have an opportunity for! I started mentally compiling things that I may want to experience.
I didn't want to do them all by myself though. Who should I call to help me get started on the first idea? No way was I calling Alice; she was already very busy. I snapped my fingers. I knew exactly who to call.
I picked up the phone and dialed Emmett's number. He answered on the second ring.
"Hey little sister! What's up?" Emmett was the perfect choice, he was a lot more likely to go along with any crazy plan I might have, so long as it promised to be funny.
I quickly explained to him what I wanted to do, and wasn't surprised when he sounded more excited than I did.
"Great! So what kinds of things do you want to do then?"
"Well," I paused, "I'm not really sure. I've got a few things in mind, but if you have any ideas I'm open to suggestion."
"Of course I have ideas! Emmett said enthusiastically. What kind of big brother would I be if I didn't?"
Suddenly I thought that maybe this was a bad idea, letting Emmett come up with ideas. He was way too eager. What have I gotten myself into?
AN #2: Anything in particular you'd like to see Bella try before she gets turned into a vampire? Leave your idea in a review and if I use it, I'll dedicate that chapter to you. Enjoy!
