1XD Yeah, I got the "Who lit Alice on fire?" joke from Avatar: The Lasst airbender. I couldn't resist.
Chapter 4: Bella's Wrath
I cringed as I heard Bella's scream from Alice's phone. Alice put her phone back to her ear.
"Don't worry, Bella. Edward's on his way to your house." Alice said.
"WHAT?!" I exclaimed. "Alice!"
Alice hung up the phone and gave me a stern look. "Start driving."
I groaned in anticipation and ran off to my car. "Wait a minute...I can't show up in this!" I ran back inside the house. "Emmett! I'm borrowing your jeep!"
Before waiting for n answer, I sprinted to Emmett's jeep. He always leaves the key in the ignition for some reason.
Bella probably thought I was Emmett, because as I pulled up, she stormed from the window inside and slammed the door open. I stepped out of the car and braced myself for the explosion.
"I told you to bring my dad home in one piece." Bella said icily. "Not turn him into a freaking drunk!"
I held my hands up to calm her down. "Bella, I never intended to bring him home drunk. Jasper and Emmett kept offering more drinks, and...well, the rest is history."
"Was this before or after I called?" Bella asked.
"After...well...during." I scratched the back of my hed. "Jasper, Emmett, and Charlie had too much fun, I guess."
Bella sighed and shook her head. "Okay. Sorry I yelled at you."
"It's okay, my sweet." I hugged and kissed her. "I would've done the same thing."
"Ahh. Why did you come in Emmett's car?"
"Oh...your dad threw up and...had an accident all over the seats snd the floor of my car, so...I just left it home for me to clean tomorrow."
Bella nodded. "All right, well...I'll pick him up tomorrow morning."
"Nah, I'll take him home." I replied. "It's the least I could do anyway."
"True." Bella smiled. "I'll see you later."
"Why not now?" I grinned. "I'll drive back in the morning."
So, we went back into the house and in Bella's room alone for the very first time since we've been together. Not that it made any difference.
The next morning, I left the house to find Emmett's jeep missing! I looked up and down the street. No jeep.
Damn it! Emmett's gonna kill me! What do I do? I ran home, thinking of how I was going to explain this. Emmett was waiting for me in front of the garage.
"Hey, Emmett." I greeted.
"Edward." Emmett greeted back. I could tell he was trying very hard not to laugh.
"What's so funny?"
Emmett walked to the garage door and opened it. There in the garage sat Emmett's jeep. I stared in shock and glared at Emmett.
"You...are...the lowest." I said. I stormed inside the house to look for Charlie.
Speak of the devil. There Charlie was coming upstairs from the basement.
"Chief Swan, I am truly sorry about last night." I began to apologize. "I did not intend for you to drink so much."
'Hmmm. I underestimated Edwin...Edward...whatever his name is.' Charlie thought. 'Last night wasn't his fault, anyway.'
"It's fine." Charlie said out loud. "Emmett and Jasper explained the whole thing and apologized."
"That's good." I smiled. "Allow me to drive you home/. It's the least I could do."
"No need. I already called Bella and asked her to pick me up." Charlie replied. "I didn't want to be any more trouble."
The doorbell rang before I replied. Bella stood on the porch.
"Looks like my dad's starting to warm up to you." She winked.
"Yeah, I think so too." I smiled. I stepped aside to let Bella into the house.
"Hey, Dad." Bella greeted Charlie. "Did you have fun last night?"
"Well, I got to know Edward a little better." Charlie smiled at me.
Bella beamed. "Well, your head is probably pounding from a hangover right now. Let's get you home.:"
The three of us jumped as we heard Rosalie scream from upstairs.
"Oh...wow! Sibling rivalry." I noted. "You two better leave. This could get ugly."
"Good idea!" Bella pulled Charlie to the front door. "Call me." She mouthed.
Rosalie bounded down the stairs just as the door closed. "Where is my husband?"
"He's out hunting." I said. "Why?"
Rose thrust a handful of pictures at me. "I found these under his bed!"
I looked at them, and they were pictures of girls in bikinis...from the rec center in Seattle. Oh geez.
"Did you know about this?" Rose glared at me.
"Um...well...kind of." I said hesitantly.
"And you didn't tell me because...?"
"We had a deal." I repl8ied. "It's kind of a long story..."
"What's a long story?" Alice asked as she came up to us.
"Emmett took pictures of girls in bikinis and Edward knew about it." Rose said to her.
Alice stifled a laugh. "I'm sorry. But really, what did you expect, Rose? He is kind of...girl crazy."
"Jasper was in on it, too." Rose told her. She showed Alice a picture of Jasper standing a few feet from a bikini clad girl.
Alice gasped. "JASPER!"
"Well, excuse me, ladies, but I have a car to clean." I really didn't want to get more involved in this. "Later!" I ran to get some cleaning products.
So these past few days weren't so bad. At least I got t know Charlie better and got his approval, and I got revenge on Jasepr and Emmett for leaving me stranded at Bella's house.
...Although, those two will probably do something to get back at me for telling Rose and Alice what they did...
You heard me. Lol I really didn't know how to continue this, so I thought I'd end here.
