"Edward? Edward where are you?"
I paused, waiting for some sort of reply. The only thing that I could hear in the Cullen's massive house was the soft ticking of the grandfather clock in the dining room. Where was he? And for that matter, where was anyone?
"Alice? Are you here?"
I got a response this time, a small tapping on the huge window that overlooked their backyard. Alice was motioning for me to go outside. How pleasant, she knew that I hated the cold. And on top of that, it was snowing!
I sighed and as quick as my human legs would go, I ran outside. I was welcomed by a huge, wet, cold snowball hitting me in the stomach.
"Jasper, not yet you idiot! At least wait for her to try to run and hide." Rosalie stood about twenty paces away from me trying to hold back giggles.
"This is not fair, seven vampires against one klutzy human" I pouted, hoping that they would stop before this got out of hand.
"Oh Bella did you really think that Carlisle and Esme would agree to bombard you with snowballs?" This was Alice's voice, although I wasn't sure where it came from. "Besides, me and Edward will be on your team."
"Or," I stressed, "I could watch from inside while you guys throw death balls at each other." I turned and ran as fast as I could go (without tripping) but Edward intercepted me.
" Not so fast love. I'm sure you could have fun doing this." He smiled that half smile that always dazzled me into doing anything.
"Fine, but just to warn you I'll probably hide more than anything"
"Don't worry," He said, kissing the tip of my nose. "I'll protect you."
"Can we get started throwing 'death balls'?" Emmett teased.
I immediately hid behind Edward as the rest of the family went wild with the snow. I do admit that it was actually pretty fun trying to unsuccessfully not get hit.
Through all the laughter and all of the snow I glanced at Alice. She had a blank look on her face and was holding a snowball like she was just about to throw it. It was like someone took a picture of her in mid-throw. I realized at that point what was happening- Alice was having a vision.
I looked up at Edward who had a look of concentration on his face. I had no doubt that he was reading Alice's vision.
I turned my head back to Alice. She was interrupted when a snowball the size of Alaska hit her smack in the face. Followed by laughter from Emmett, Rosalie, and Jasper.
Both she and Edward returned to the game as though nothing had happened. I knew Edward was trying to hide something. The way his smile didn't reach his eyes.
He turned to me and said, "Bella, you look cold and you're sopping wet. How about we go inside and I'll make you some hot chocolate?"
I had to admit I was cold and I did want to go inside. Only because I wanted Edward to tell me what Alice had seen. It seemed pretty important, considering he was trying to hide it from me.
"Okay Edward, I'll go inside," Was all I said.
Obviously, my human speed wasn't fast enough for Edward. He scooped me up and ran inside.
I sat in the kitchen and asked him, "Edward, what did Alice see when we were out-" He shut me up with a kiss and I almost forgot my question.
His lips parted from mine and he added, "Would you like marshmallows with that hot chocolate?"
I shook my head and said, "When we were having the snowball fight Alice saw someth-"
He cut me off again, "So no marshmallows then?"
"Edward, I know that you're hiding something from me."
"Bella," he replied, his voice like velvet. "Why would I hide something from you?"
"Then answer my question Edward! What. Did. Alice. See?"
