Chapter 1: Disappearance

I stared at about ten different hair products for the millionth time. I was stuck in Alice's bathroom, again, and she refused to answer any of my questions about Edward. I was tired of playing dress up with her.

"Alice, can't I just go home?"

"Aren't you enjoying this even a little bit?" she asked, her lip sticking out a bit. I pursed my lips, not wanting to hurt her feelings.

"Charlie is probably wondering where I am right now. Anyway, I need to make his dinner."

"Esme already cleared it with Charlie."

"Fine," I pouted. "Where's Edward? I haven't seen him in hours."

"Emmett and Jasper are keeping him busy just calm down."

"I can't see why we have to be separated all the time."

"He hasn't seen the wedding dress on you, and I'm keeping it that way. Now just one more pin, and you should be ready." I looked into the mirror. My hair was curly, and pinned to the top of my head. I had to admit, it looked cute.

"You sure Edward will like it?"

"Yes, he'll love it." The phone rang. "I'll get it!" Alice called. I sighed and jumped off the counter.

"Bella, it's for you." Alice handed me the phone. I gave her a puzzled look and took it.


"Bella," the most beautiful voice in the world sighed.

"Edward!" I said, overjoyed.

"How was your day?"

"Slow. Alice held me hostage in her bathroom. We had to play dress up all day," I complained. Alice stuck her tongue out at me. He chuckled. "How was your day?"

"Slow. Emmett and Jasper are very disappointed in me. I couldn't spend more than one minute worrying about you. I got on their nerves."

"Will I see you soon?"

"I'll be in your bedroom tonight," he verified.

"Okay. Alice is giving me the glare of death."

"Put her on the phone." I handed her the phone.

"Edward, you're being a horrible fiancée." I crossed my arms and hopped back up on the bathroom counter.

Later that night, I sat on my bed, wondering when Edward was coming. He promised to be here tonight. Why wouldn't he show up? The doorbell rang. "I'll get it," I called. I ran down the stairs, and opened the door. It was Alice.

"Where's Edward?"

"He had to leave. An emergency came up."
