Disclaimer: I don't own anything and I don't own the movie She's the man.
A/N: This is my first fanfiction and it's an Alternate Universe and they're all human. It's kinda like the movie She's the man, in the sense that Edward disguises himself as his sister then falls for his roommate. But the rest of the story is my own, and completely different from the movie! Enjoy! Chapter 1 – The Plan
EPOV (A/N: The majority of the story will take place in his point of view)Well I'm not paralyzed but I seem to be stuck by you I wanna make you move because you're standing –
The music was cut and I turned away from my laptop and saw my younger sister Alice standing in front of my stereo with her hands on her hips.
Outraged, I demanded, "What the hell are you doing? This is my room, you know."
"I am well aware of that fact, oh older brother of mine. But I need you help."
"Ugh! Alice if this another one of those times where you want me to dress up as the Grudge and run after some guy, I'm not doing it." I said in a bored voice.
She made a face and sat down at the foot of my bed. "Those were drastic measures. This is… kinda more complicated."
"What is it, Alice?" I said anxiously. "If Jasper hurt you in any way… I don't care if he's my best friend, I'll hunt him down." I growled.
"Hold your panties! Gosh Edward you really can jump to conclusions. It's nothing along those lines… Jazz is fine! He'd never hurt me!"
"Okay, good." I sighed. "I'm not really in the mood to run after someone today."
She rolled her eyes. "Yeah cause you usually are on any other day." Her voice was dripping with sarcasm. "But, no, listen. I need your help. And possibly Emmett's too. I'm still waiting for Angela's call." She peered at her cell phone, which was in her hand.
"You need mine and Emmett's help? And what does that have to do with Angela?" I asked, feeling utterly confused.
Emmett was my best friend, but him and Alice aren't on very good terms at the moment. She still hasn't forgiven him for breaking her hair straightener after he decided to experiment. He said he didn't like his curly hair anymore and tried to argue his case, but Alice wasn't pleased. And Angela was one of Alice's close friends from school. The two recently joined the prestigious all-girls Starfield Academy in Seattle to complete their 12th grade, while Emmett, Jasper and I were going to the all-boys Kensington Preparatory, also in Seattle. Ugh! The guys and I weren't looking forward to this year. Of course, our parents had to decide to send us there for our senior year. Now we were stuck with no girls for our senior year, even though Kensington Prep and Starfield organized dances and their proms together, because they were only a five minutes drive apart.
I was pulled from my train of thought as Alice cleared her throat, capturing my attention.
"Okay. What I'm about to tell you is classified top-secret information. You can't tell anyone! Well Emmett might find out cause I need his help, but no one else!" She growled fiercely.
"What did you like hack into the F.B.I. database and steal some top-secret info?" I snickered.
She didn't reply. She only looked at me with a blank expression.
"Oh my god! You did!" I gasped.
She continued to stare at me for a few seconds then burst out laughing. "Gosh Eddie! You should see your face! It's priceless! I wish I had a camera. OH WAIT! I DO!" She pulled out her phone and snapped a pic.
I glowered. "Alice, never call me that again! And delete that picture!"
"I don't think so," She sang. "This is pure black mail materiel."
"Whatever. Have fun. Back to your 'top-secret' info. And please make it quick. I'm going over to Emmett's and he's picking me up."
"Good, you'll be able to tell him about it… here it goes … Jasper, Angela, Ben and I are leaving."
"What?" I said blankly.
"Jasper-Angela-Ben-and-I-are-leaving." She enunciated every word clearly as if she were talking to a five-year-old.
"Yeah, I got that thanks. But why are you leaving? And where are you going? Do mom and dad know? Why would you want to leave? And why are Jasper, Angela and Ben going with you? Alice, tell me what the hell is going on." I rambled on.
I was surprised that she waited calmly all throughout my babbling.
"Right. Have you gotten all of the questions out of your system?" She didn't wait for me to answer. "I'm not leaving, leaving. The four of us are just taking an important vacation during the last two weeks of August – "
"Hold on, you start school on the 19th. That's two weeks before the end of August." I interrupted.
"Which is why, my dear brother, I need your help."
"Why ask for me help? And what do you want me to do?" I asked suspiciously.
"Well you see, mom and dad don't know. And they won't will they?" She growled.
"If you want my help, you have to tell me where you're going and why."
She bit her lip and started looking uncomfortable. "I was kinda, sorta, maybe hoping we could avoid that question."
"No dice. If you want my help Alice, you have to tell me."
She didn't say anything. I waited a few moments and still nothing, so I turned back to my laptop and started pretend typing, knowing she would crack any second. She looked too desperate.
"FINE!" She huffed.
I faced her again and grinned. "Victory is mine!"
"Oh, stuff it Edward."
I ignored her comment. "Go on. I'm waiting."
"Well…" She whispered, and then took off at full speed. "JasperandIaregoingtoLasVegastogetmarried." (A/N: If you didn't catch that it's: Jasper and I are going to Las Vegas to get married)
Unbelievably, I caught everything she said. "YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!?" I screamed.
"EDWARD SHUT UP! MOM'S DOWN STAIRS!" She hissed.
"Well it's pretty big news. She should know. AND WHY ARE YOU GETTING MARRIED? YOU'RE NOT EVEN 18 YET!" I half-yelled.
"Look, Edward. I wouldn't expect you to understand. Your whole life, you've only ever had three girlfriends and they were totally dumb. Well not totally dumb… but the point is you've never met the girl of your dreams! You wouldn't know how Jazz and I feel. And Angela and Ben are getting married too." She said while looking out the window.
"Well I expected that from them, but you're right. All the girls at our old high school were total nitwits. And I haven't met the girl of my dreams. But when I do, I hope I have what you and Jazz have. I know you love him, Alice. But you're only 18. Why not wait a few years? Just to be sure." I tried desperately to convince her.
"I am sure!" She cried. "I'm utterly and completely sure that I want to spend the rest of my life with Jasper. I love him more than anything else in the world. Please, Edward. Please just help me. This is something I need to do. Will you help me or not?"
I thought about it for a couple of minutes. Anyone who was around Alice and Jasper could see that they were completely in love. Sometimes I envied them. I couldn't help but want what they had with a girl of my own. But all the girls at my school were shallow and self-centered. Hopefully I'd meet the girl of my dreams soon.
I looked at Alice. I loved her so much and I just wanted her to be happy. The caring part of me wanted to agree to her demand but the logical part, wanted to tell her to wait and marry Jasper properly.
As I was about to reply, my cell phone rung. I flipped it open without looking at the display.
"EDDIEKINS!!!!" A high-pitched voice squealed.
I almost fell off my chair. Tanya. God, she had this huge crush on me along with half the other girls at school. When were they going to realize that I wasn't interested in ANY girl at my school. How did she even get my number?
"Sorry. You have the wrong number."
"Eddie!" She laughed. "Quite like playing games! I recognized your voice! So I was like wondering if you like wanted to go to the mall. You could like hold the bags for me and like tell me which lingerie you prefer!" She laughed suggestively. "And this senior year is gonna like rock! You should like totally come up to my cottage with me before school like starts. I already like called your mom and she said you didn't start school till like the 3rd. I mean, duh! What are you like going to another school or something?"
Oh my god! My mom did what! Okay, if she called mom then she knows I'm free to go. Crap. Helplessly, I look up and catch Alice's smirk. Decision made. I'm helping Alice! Anything to get out of having to hang with this complete dumbo!
"I'm gonna be honest. I'm definitely not interested in you. Or in any other girl at school. So I'm counting on you to pass the message along. And sorry, a friend called a few minutes ago and I made plans for the last two weeks. I won't be in town. And yeah, I'm going to another school so I probably won't talk to you ever again. Later" I hung up before she had the chance to reply.
"So what did you have in mind, Alice?" I smiled at her expression.
"THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! YOU'RE THE BEST BROTHER EVER!" She squealed and started jumping up and down.
I laughed. "Calm down Alice! Now tell me what I have to do to help."
"Okay, you have to disguise yourself as me, Alice Cullen."
"What!?" I really did fall off my hair this time.
"Oh Edward stop being so dramatic! It's only for two weeks! And if Emmett agrees, then he'll be dressed up as Angela." She smiled innocently.
"Alice!" I whined. "I'm not dressing up as a girl! That is the last thing I would ever do!"
"Didn't you just impulsively agree to help me? Or would you rather hang with Tanya and her bimbos next weekend? I mean I totally understand if you would." She got up off the bed and started walking towards the door.
Desperately I cried: "Wait!"
Alice turned around cheery. "I knew you'd cave." She sat back down on the bed and crossed her legs.
I folded my arms across my chest and glared. "I did not agree. I'm just listening to your full explanation and miraculous plan before I make a final decision."
"Okay now listen once, because I only have time to explain once." She continued, "This is my first time at Starfield, so no one knows what I or Angela look like. All you have to do is tell our rents that you and Emmett are staying at Jasper's cottage in Olympia for the next two weeks with him and Ben. That way, you're covered completely and they won't suspect that you're taking my place. Now you can tell mom that you and Jasper will drive Angela and me to school on your way to the cottage. When really, you and Emmett will be going to Starfield and the rest of us will be making our way to Las Vegas. If you agree, I have the entire Elegant Locks salon booked for hair, makeup and nails makeover. And then we'll take you shopping and teach you and Emmett how to be a girl!"
All throughout her little speech, I remained mute. She had carefully organized the entire thing and I was positive mom and dad wouldn't figure it out. There was only one problem.
"Hate to burst your bubble. But how do you think that Emmett and I will pass as girls? Alice, I'm 6 feet tall and Emmett's 6 foot 2. Plus, have you not seen him lately? He's like a walking sausage roll. He's arms are practically bigger than your waist. Good plan, but it'll never work." I said.
"I did think of that. Edward, would you mind telling me how tall our old vice principal was?" She asked innocently.
Crap. I forgot about her. "About 6 feet." I mumbled.
"That's right. So you're height shouldn't be a problem. And as for Emmett, well Angela is really athletic. We can just up the story a bit and make her a female weight lifter. You wouldn't believe the stuff people would believe. And besides, the only way they'd find out you both were guys, was if they'd pants you and they won't cause girls aren't immature like guys."
When she put it that way, it did seem highly realistic.
"Okay… and what about when you get back? I'm pretty sure people will notice the difference in the 'Alice' that I'm gonna be, and the actual Alice. How are you going to explain that?" I asked.
"Well… that could cause problems. But I can just say that my twin sister replaced me because I was home sick. And then I can just pretend to be mom when they call home." She broke off when she saw my eyebrow raised. "Okay so I haven't' figured that part out yet, but I'm sure everything will fall into place. Can you please just trust me on this?"
I nodded. I trusted my sister a lot and I wanted to help her. Plus, I was always an adventurous and daring person. I've been dead bored lately and I'm in the mood for some fun.
"Fine, Alice. I'm in. But only because I love you." I agreed reluctantly. I couldn't disappoint her.
"Thank you sooooooooooo much! I will owe you forever!" She came over and gave me a hug. "And I know you're agreeing because of all the girls you'll meet at Starfield."
Huh. She's right. I will meet a lot of girls there. Hopefully one I'll fall in love with and have an actual relationship with.
"Yeah, yeah." I heard a knock on the door; Emmett was here. " Now scram, I my partner-in-crime is here! I have to tell him all about what I got him into!"
"Bye!" She cried before running out of my room.
I walked down stairs and opened the door. Emmett walked in and strolled down the hallway to the living room and picked up the controller and started playing a video game. I sat beside him and casually said: "So, do you have any plans for the next two weeks?"
He paused the game and looked at me. "Dude, you're not asking me out are you?"
"Ugh! No I'm not. But if you're not busy I have something we can do."
"Carry on, my man. I'm all ears. It's so boring around here." He picked up the controller again and resumed the game.
"Well… Jasper and Alice and Angela and Ben are going to get married in Las Vegas." I said in a rush.
"What!? Dude, since when?" Emmett dropped the remote and gave me his full attention. Something that never happened.
"I don't know since when, but they decided to. Only problem is, they're leaving the 19th but Alice's school starts that day. So she asked me if we'd be willing to dress up as them and attend their school for two weeks until after they come back. Are you game?"
"Sure." He said easily, like I had just asked if he wanted pizza.
"What? You're actually willing to?" I asked in utter disbelief.
"Well, yeah. I'm dead bored and I need something to do. Plus it'll be awesome hanging with chicks for the next two weeks. Just think of all the possibilities!" He added an evil laugh.
"You do know I'll be dressed up as Alice and you'll be dressed up as Angela?"
"Oh right. Well that's a bummer. But we'll meet the girls and chat em up for two weeks then they'll meet the real Emmett!" He said excitedly.
"It amazes me that you're down with this, but I'm happy you're coming along." I picked my phone up and texted Alice that Emmett was in.
I heard a muffled squeal and then Alice dashed down the stairs screaming, "Makeover time!!!!!!!!!!"
