AN: I'm sorry again that this chapter took so long to get out. School takes up so much time! I hope you like this chapter, cuz I do.
Anyways...read on my readers!
Alice, Jasper and Edward shrugged of my question about their fast movement. Why the hell didn't they just answer my question?
Alice and Edward looked as if they were having a silent argument or conversation of some sort. Alice looked relaxed, while Edward just looked annoyed. "Edward, why don't you and Jazzy go upstairs and play some videogames while Bella and I practice?" Alice suddenly said, out loud.
"Yeah, sure Alice," Edward replied. He and Jasper then proceeded to run up the stairs to what I assumed was the game room. Alice turned to me.
"You ready?" she asked.
"Yeah, let's get to it." I said. Alice nodded her head and ran upstairs to her room and was back downstairs with her iHome and iPod in three seconds. She turned to me with a smile on her face. Then her eyes glazed over, staring at something behind me.
"Alice?" I said quietly, pressing the 'pause' button. No answer came from Alice. Again, I said "Alice?" a little bit louder. She blinked her eyes and looked at me.
"Sorry 'bout that. Now let's get to work on the dance. You should try to get the dance down by tomorrow so we can start choreographing our duet."
"Okay. I'm a fast learner, so it shouldn't take very long for me to have the dance memorized." I tried not to sound high and mighty. I was being honest.
"Let's get with it!" she squeaked, and then added, "Let's see what you remember. From the beginning." She pressed 'play' on the little remote and the opening notes of 'Viva la Vida' filled the room. I counted four counts then danced 'on stage'. I looked at Alice, who was nodding. I danced through the rest of the dance that had been taught to me. When I stopped, Alice proceeded to teach me the rest, and then tweak the whole dance- almost to perfection- which took about two hours. Then we ran through it again- not messing up once, thanks to Alice's meticulous corrections.
When we finished the last run-through of our dance, Alice and I high-fived each other. Then Alice looked like she was talking to somebody in her head and saying something important. A couple of seconds later, I heard footsteps coming down the stairs. Edward stood before us, confused. "I'm just coming down to get a snack for Jasper and I. Hope I'm not intruding."
"Oh, no Edward, we were just finishing," Alice said in a sweet voice, like she was trying to convince him to do something that was important to her. In the same voice, she continued, "Why don't you stay here and talk to Bella?" Now she sounded happy, like she had been planning this all along.
"But Jasper is waiting for me," Edward said, sounding slightly defeated.
Alice sighed, "I'll take Jazzy his snack; you talk with Bell."
"Fine," Edward huffed in reply, probably wanting to get back to his videogames, or just didn't want to talk to me. Maybe I should go home? "Evil pixie," he added under his breath- earning an evil glare and a smack to the back of the head by Alice.
"Bella, stay and talk with Edward," Alice said in a strict tone. She almost read my mind.
"Alright, I'll stay."
"Yay!" Alice squeaked. She went to the kitchen and grabbed a bag of –unopened-chips and dashed upstairs.
"She's enthusiastic," I said, speaking my mind.
"She's been worse," Edward replied.
"I'm sure," I said, nodding my head up and down.
"Have a seat on the couch. I be you're tired," Edward suggested, his hand gesturing toward the white leather couch on the other side of the room, in front of a huge flat screen TV that I was sure had HD. I walked over to the back of said couch. I wasn't tired, but hyper after dancing, so I jumped over the back of the couch and slid into a normal sitting position. Edward followed after me with a smile on his face, and sat down normally, like a civilized being.
"So…how do you like Forks?" He asked randomly.
"It's green and rainy, but it's quite nice. I have one question for you though."
"You aren't human are you?" He might think I'm crazy, but I wanted to know. "Don't lie," I added.
"What do you think I am?" He questioned.
"That's my problem; I was hoping you'd tell me, but I know that you aren't human."
"Why do you say that?" He was trying to avoid answering my question.
"Well, you move really fast-faster than any human could ever move, and your skin is pale white and ice cold-too cold for a human." He was quiet for a moment.
"You're right. We aren't human."
What were they? Before I could voice my thoughts, Edward said, "What's your favorite color"
"Now, brown. You?"
"Why?" I asked.
"You look marvelous in blue," he answered. I looked down at my shirt. I didn't really remember what color shirt I was wearing, considering I got ready in a hurry this morning. "Favorite book?" He continued.
"Why?" He seemed disgusted.
"It's an epic tale of love, and I happen to be a sucker for romance stories."
"I think it's a dreadful story."
"So," I said defiantly. "What's yours?"
"Mine? Treasure Island."
"Oh! That's a good book!"
"What's on your iPod?"
"Well, Debussy, Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Muse, and Blue October, mainly."
"You know Debussy?"
"Yeah. I love Clair de Lune. I have a question for you." I had a feeling I was going to embarrass myself.
"Do you like anyone at school?" I was just wondering, while Edward looked embarrassed, instead of me.
"Yes." He looked shy, like he was protecting himself.
"Who?" I asked. Honestly, I just wanted to know. I wasn't going to be jealous if he didn't like me. We've only known each other for almost two days. I looked down at my shoelaces.
Edward used one cold finger to pull my chin towards him, our eyes locking. "You," he stated.
"You're beautiful, down to earth, and the nicest girl-apart from my family- that I've met."
"You could have Jessica or Lauren, but you choose me?"
"Yes, but Jessica and Lauren don't look half as beautiful as you do. And, you don't swoon over me and my brothers like they do. You have no idea how annoying it gets."
"I would think you would like the attention."
"Not really. When's your birthday?"
"September 13. When's yours?"
We sat there looking into each other's eyes for a couple seconds. I felt his hand reach out to mine. When they touched, I felt and electric shock run through my body. I gasped, but didn't pull my hand away. The next sound I heard was a car pulling up to the house.
"That would be Emmett and Rosalie," Edward clarified, but they were standing in front of us. Not only had Edward clarified my confusion, but greeted them at the same time.
"Hush, Emmett," Edward said, an annoyed tone in his voice.
"Aw Eddie, I didn't say anything," Emmett looked like a little kid who dropped his ice cream cone.
Edward gave Emmett the evil eye then said, "Alice and Jasper are upstairs playing Rock Band. You guys should go up and play with them…they could use a bass player…and a better drummer."
"Dude, I'm in. See you two lovebirds later. You should see the look on your faces. Hilarious." Emmett darted upstairs, pulling Rosalie along with him.
I hadn't noticed that Edward and I were leaning closer together, our faces no more than four inches apart.
I looked away, blushing and tried to hide my face. I felt Edward's cool hand touch my chin pulling my face towards his again. "Don't be embarrassed; you have a beautiful blush." His comment made my already red blush even redder. I saw Edward smile.
I narrowed my eyes in a playfully accusing manner. He returned my expression the same way. After a few seconds of this stare down, we both cracked up. Instead of me falling backwards, I fell forward- into his arms. I stopped laughing and sighed as his arms wound around my waist. He smelled so sweet. I couldn't describe it.
I opened my eyes and looked at the clock. I dread "9:57 pm". "Holy crap. Charlie is going to kill me," I muttered.
"Wow. It is really late. I didn't realize we spent so much time talking."
"Mmhmm. How do I get back to my house?" I honestly didn't know how I got here, and I had to drive my truck to my house to get to school tomorrow.
"Follow the dirt road until you reached the paved one, then take a left to get on the highway and you should be fine."
"Thanks. I better hurry."
"Bye Bella," Edward said, looking intensely in my eyes.
"Bye Edward," I whispered, then called, "Bye Alice!" and walked out to my truck.
I was about to open my truck's door when Edward stopped me.
"Would you like to go out on a date with me? Maybe see a movie and get some dinner or something?" he said.
"Yeah, that would be great."
"So, I'll pick you up at 7:00 tomorrow evening"
I opened my truck door and left Edward's house-him waving at me.
When I walked in the door Charlie was pacing around, looking very angry.
"Sorry I'm late, dad. Alice and I got to talking and practicing and lost track of time."
"You could've called me! I've been so worried about you!"
"Sorry dad. Well, I'm going to bed now 'kay?"
"Alright, Goodnight Bella," Charlie sounded defeated and sad.
After brushing my teeth and putting on my pajamas, I slid under the covers of my comfy bed.
A couple minutes later, I go tot and decided to open my window. The cool night breeze cooled my room and I was able to fall asleep quickly.
That night, I dreamt of Edward- I missed his presence.
When Bella left my house, I felt as if she took a piece of me with her.
"She's going to leave her window open tonight. She'll be asleep by 10:45.
"Thanks, Alice," I said in a normal voice.
"You're welcome. You know, you should think about asking her to Junior prom."
"But I just met her!"
"You have a few months."
"FINE!" I huffed.
"She's going to say yes. You have my word."
"That assures me," I said sarcastically.
At about 10:40, I left for Bella's room to watch her sleep again. It made me feel like a teenage boy, but I didn't care.
