Ok you guys for the first time in a while I had some free time and I was feeling a little creative hopefully you guys are still following the story!
"So why exactly did you go running out of there?" Emmitt said looking at Bella as she stumbled again on the rug.
"Stupid rug." Bella mumbled to herself before she looked up at Emmitt. "Because I just found out that Edward is my boss that's why!" Bella said smacking him in the arm.
"What's that for?" Emmitt said with a smirk on his face. "Why does it matter that he's your boss anyways? It's not like you have feeling for him or anything." Emmitt said with one of those all-knowing smirks.
"Well no that's not it at all…" Bella trailed off. "But we're all there drinking and stuff and I just don't think that it is cool to be partying in front of your boss or whatever." Bella said her face getting as bright as a tomato. Dam her blush for always giving her away. She thought to herself as she stumbled on what seemed to be just her feet.
"How much have you had missy?" Emmitt asked grabbing her arm to steady her.
"Just that drink you mixed and some of the punch." Bella said as she held on to Emmitt a little longer. She didn't think that she should be that tipsy after one of Emmitt's drinks.
"Umm… exactly how much punch?"
"I don't know a few glasses maybe." Bella said trying to remember.
"Right… Well maybe we should find Alice and Rose."
"Why what's the big deal?" Bella said starting to feel like she was walking on air.
"Well the punch was spiked too." Emmitt said trying to consider if he should find her a trash can or not.
"I'm fine Emmitt. Just probably getting a little more drunk that I had planned on. But I didn't eat anything so there is nothing for me to throw up!" Bella said her head starting to feel she was swimming.
"Right…" Emmitt said placing her on a stool in the kitchen. "You just sit her and sip some water." Emmitt said handing Bella a tall glass of water.
"Thanks Emmit! You're so nice to me!" She said leaning in the chair to give Emmitt a hug
"Thanks Bella." Emmitt laughed placing her back on the stool. "Now just sit here and try not to lean on way or the other. We don't need you breaking anything tonight." Emmitt said trying to get Bella to sit strait before heading off to find Alice or Rose to take care of her.
Bella sat on the stool with a lopsided smile on her face leaning on the counter sipping her water as she surveyed her surroundings but not taking anything in at the time. "Oh shoot." Bella said when she tried to take another sip of water but missed her mouth spilling some on herself. "Alice is gonna be very very very mad." Bella slurred to herself.
"Had a little too much?" A voice said holding out a napkin for Bella.
Bella looked up to see Edward in front of her again. "It's a good thing that I didn't have anything to eat." Bella said.
"Why?" Edward asked looking at her with one eyebrow cocked.
"Why is it a good thing that you didn't eat anything?" He asked surveying her.
Bella turned a bright red again. "I did not mean say that." Bella said trying her best to focus.
Edward chuckled taking Bella's water and refilling it for her. "That's fine. Drank too much I take it?" he repeated for her.
"I DID NOT!" Bella yelled "Stupid Emmitt spiked the punch!" Bella said trying to adjust herself on the stool for some apparent reason. "Son of a-" Bella said suddenly feeling herself leaning one way she was pretty sure she was about to fall.
"Whoa there." Edward said grabbing Bella and pulling her off the stool. "Maybe putting you there was not the best idea." He said with a laugh.
"Uh-huh" Bella said not able to form a thought at this point at all. Her focus was between trying to make her legs work and her close proximity to Edward. If there had been anything but water in her stomach Bella was pretty sure that it was going to come up all over Edward at the point in time.
"Come on let's get you some fresh air." Edward said almost carrying her to the door. "I think the front porch will be better I heard some people had an accident out back already." Edward said opening the door helping her outside.
"Thanks." Bella said before stumbling out to the front porch almost flat on her face if Edward had not caught her again. "Tha-you" Bella slurred out. Following Edward to the swing she stood there for a moment watching him swing.
"What's wrong?" He asked looking at Bella's rather perplexed face.
"Its moving." Bella said feeling her head sway like the bench in front of her.
Edward chuckled as he set his feet down stopping. "My mistake. Come on." He said holding his hand out for her to take."
"Thanks." Bella said grabbing his hand and sitting down what she usually would think was too close to him.
Bella just sat with Edward taking in the cool fresh air helping her head sway a little less. Without thinking about it Bella set her head on Edward's shoulder. She could have sworn she heard Edward chuckle.
"Can I ask you something?" Edward said looking down at Bella.
"Mhmm." Bella said feeling herself rather content at the moment.
"Why did you run out the of kitchen before?" He asked quizzically.
"You're my boss." Bella tried again to form words in her mind but it just was not working at the moment.
"Because I saw you at the restaurant. I did not know. Now I know. And it's not cool." Bella said to what she thought making perfect sense.
"Why is it not cool?" Edward asked chuckling the whole time.
"Because I did not know." Bella said not know why he couldn't understand.
"Ok. I think I get it." Edward said figuring what she was getting at.
"Emmitt didn't tell me. He made fun of me."
"When you came to the restaurant, duh!" Bella said looking at him. "He was making fun of me because I was looking in the dining room the whole time.
"Why where you looking in the dining room?" Edward asked suddenly interested in the conversation.
"Because you were there." Bella said setting her head back on his shoulder.
"Really now?" Edward said suddenly in deep thought.
"Yep." Bella said with a yawn "Because of that Emmitt made fun of me." She said her eyes getting droopy.
"Hey Rose." Edward said as she and Emmitt came out on the porch.
"Oh thank god I thought I lost her!" Emmitt said out loud.
"Shhhh Emmitt you're going to wake her." Alice came out and slapped Emmitt's arm.
"How did you get her so drunk?" Jasper asked trailing behind Alice wrapping his arm around her waist.
"She didn't realize that the punch was spiked." Edward said answering him.
"I guess I did a good job since she couldn't taste the liquor in it." Emmitt said puffing out his chest.
"Yea nice job about that you made two people throw up on the back yard porch because of that. You get to clean that up." Rose said pointedly to Emmitt.
"Worth it. So worth it." Emmitt said looking at Bella asleep on Edward's shoulder. "I'm pretty sure that Edward thinks it was good too."
Edward just chuckled. "I'm not getting myself between that."
"Come on let's get her upstairs she's gonna freeze if she stays out here any longer." Rose said. "Pick her up Emmitt and take her upstairs for me please?"
"I got her." Edward said picking up Bella effortlessly walking back into the house.
"Sure thing." Alice said with a smile on her face. "Her room is upstairs with the paw print on the door. Watch out for the husky too. She can be a bit protective at times." Alice said following Edward to her room.
Opening the door Edward placed Bella in her bed. "Night you guys." Edward said making for the door.
"Night Edward." Alice said shutting the door behind him before helping Bella into her pajamas and putting a glass of water and a bottle of pain reliever on her nightstand. "Come on Sam." Alice said patting the bed for her to jump on. "Sleep well girl." Alice said petting Sam before heading out of Bella's room shutting the door behind her.
