DISCLAIMER: I OWN NOTHING STEPHENIE MEYER DOES! AND ANOTHER LITTLE NOTE SORRY FOR NOT UPDATING SOONER I WAS GROUNDED AND COULD ONLY SNEAK ON FOR A LITTLE BIT AT A TIME. NOT ENOUGH TO WRITE!
As Alice shouted this I knew I was in for one fun day. I did feel bad for Edward. It was going to be a long day for him. Between his siblings and watching me to make sure I didn't get hurt.
I was pulled out of my thoughts by someon grabbing me from behind. I turned and saw it was Edward. I let out a sigh of relief.
"Sorry love, I didn't mean to startle you. Emmett let it slip that he was going to try and kidnap you, so to speak. He was going to use you as bait while Alice came down and looked for the flag. Emmett is good at this game. When he does get distracted, it's bad for that team." He was laughing. I revised my previous thoughts; maybe he would have fun.
"Do you really think I mind being held by you?" I asked a, smile on my face.
"I never know with you." He was smirking. Just to prove my point I kissed him. All of a sudden I heard laughing from the stairs.
"Eww, do you two really have to do that right now?" Emmett asked, laughing and smiling the whole time.
"Yes because you and Rosalie are so much better." Edward added in a sarcastic voice.
"At least we do that in the bedrooms when we're playing. No one forces you to go into the rooms." Emmet added.
"And that makes sense in a game where you have to go around each room to look for the flag." Edward was clearly getting annoyed. As he was saying this I saw a blur of white go by me.
"Edward did you see that?" I asked, thinking I was going insane.
"No what did you see?" He asked. Clearly, he had been distracted with the argument brewing.
"I think Alice just went by." I said. And with that Edward's face lit up. And mine too. Emmett had been a distraction. Alice knew we were going to kiss and planned around it. Edward took off running and Emmett chased off after him. Trying to distract him some more.
While they were chasing each other I remembered that I couldn't plan anything or Alice would see it. So I 'planned' to sit down and wait for Edward to come back. Then I made a split second decision on my way to the living room to go upstairs and look.
I could hear them stil fighting each other. So I knew I was safe. I felt weird going into the other's rooms. But if I wanted to win, I had to. I went into Alice's room first. I knew it well. I had been in there a lot for makeovers. I went to the closet first and looked through it, then the bed, under the bed, the bathroom, the dressers, and finally the desk. No flag was found. Next on my list was Carlisle's office. I felt like I was intruding. I just kept telling myself I had to if wanted to win. I looked on the bookcases, the desk, and I found nothing. So I was left with two more rooms. I went into Esme and Carlisle's room. As with Alice's I searched everywhere and I found nothing. Just as I was exiting and getting ready to go into Emmett and Rosalie's room I heard several loud bangs.
Suddenly I was standing in the living room, standing next to a wet and colorful Edward. That was also when I noticed I was wet as well. He must have got me.
"What happened?" I asked. I was in shock.
"I managed to get Alice tackled and we were wrestling. I was trying to take her hostage when Emmett came in holding a water gun and a paint gun. He knows not to use the paint one on you. So he decided that he would use the paint on me and the water on you. That way you wouldn't get hurt. But then, you weren't there so he used both on me. They were headed back upstairs so I ran and got you, before they could." He finished not looking happy.
"Well I think I know where their flag is." I stated, proud of my work.
"Good because I think Alice has a good idea where ours is." He said. " By the time I got to her she had looked in all of the obvious places. There are a few not so obvious ones that she'll probably search first." He explained.
"Well when you were fighting I searched Alice's room, Carlisle's office, and Esme's room. That only leaves Emmett's room." He looked down at me as I said this and smiled.
"Well it's good to know I got painted and wet for a reason." He said, still smiling.
"A very good one." I said, leaning up so I could give him a quick kiss. What could I say? He was just so… kissable.
"If it's in Emmett and Rosalie's room I have an idea of where it could be. It's not obvious but I just have a feeling." He whispered to me right after we kissed, so I was still at his height. He also whispered where he thought I should look first. I have to admit it was a pretty good hiding place, I would never look there.
"Ok. But by now they know that we know where it is, or at least what room it's in. they will be around it and try to stop us." I pointed out.
"Not if we have a… threat." He had a devious face on. It was so cute.
"And what would that be?" I asked
"Oh say someone's favorite pair of shoes, that they can't live without! And another someone's favorite autographed baseball!" He yelled towards the stairs.
All of a sudden two white blurs were on top of him and growling.
"Edward if you want to continue to exist, I would strongly recommend that you give me my shoes!" Alice yelled.
"Edward give me the ball or I will personally rip you to shreds!" Emmett yelled at the same time. While they were distracted, I ran upstairs, without falling once.
As soon as I made it to the second floor, I went straight into Emmett's room.
I went straight to the closet. I know that part was kind of obvious. It was where it was in the closet that surprised me. I looked inside all of the clothes, and stuffed in the last dress was the flag. Now I just had to make it downstairs. I had a feeling that was going to be the hard part. I was bound to trip or get into some kind of trouble.
Unbelievable! I made it to the stairs. They must really like the shoes and the baseball. It was amusing I could still hear them threatening Edward.
"If you don't give them back right now, I will destroy every cd you have in your room." Alice yelled.
"You wouldn't because then you would have to track them all down and buy them for me. And how much would that affect you'rs shoe fund?" I knew if I could see him, he would have an adorable smug look on his face. The one he always wore when he knew he was absolutely right.
More growling ensued. Emmett threatened him as well, only he used the Volvo. To which Edward used the same reply only he said it would cut into Emmett's money he used to buy Rosalie gifts when she was mad at him.
I, shockingly, managed to get back to couch. I had the perfect view of the fight. By now I was in near hysterics at the sight in front of me. Both Emmett and Alice were sitting on Edward. And like I had predicted, he was looking so cute and smug. Now when that look was used on me, I hated it. I have to say though I enjoyed seeing it used on someone else. I was quite comfortable where I was, so I decided to stay here and be as quiet as possible. Let it play out.
Alice was suddenly frozen and both Emmett and Edward were staring at her. I couldn't be sure but I think I heard her curse.
"Game over." She said defeated.
"What?" Emmett yelled.
"Edward was the distraction and Bella found the flag while we were fighting." Alice explained calmly.
I smiled as Edward looked over at me with the same smile.
"Anyone up for another round?" Emmett asked hopefully.
Just as he finished the rest of the Cullens came in. They walked in and stopped when they saw how everyone was sitting.
"Do I want to know?" Rosalie asked looking at Emmett and then at me. I shrugged my shoulders and she just sighed and went upstairs.
"Edward, why are you wet and have paint on you?" Esme asked. And Carlisle looked like he wanted to know the answer too.
"A very entertaining game." Was all he that he said.
"I hope nothing was damaged." Esme said
"Not much. Just my window." Edward replied, smirking at Emmett. Emmett just glared.
"I'm going to assume whoever is responsible for that is going to be fixing it?" Carlisle asked.
"Yes." Emmet grumbled. I found this all very amusing. The way they were talking about this made it sound like an everyday conversation.
"Good." And with that Esme and Carlisle headed upstairs as well. Jasper went over and picked Alice up. They came into the living room and sat down on the chair. Emmet went upstairs to see Rosalie.
That was when I noticed Edward was gone. As I was about to ask Alice where he went, he came right to me on the couch and held me.
"I went upstairs to change." He explained.
"Oh ok." I sighed contently, as I curled into him. We were probably on the couch for an hour or so before he finally mentioned bed.
"I think it's time we went upstairs and get you to bed." He said in my ear.
"Mm'kay." I hated to admit it but I was tired. Before the game started Alice had me going over a lot of wedding details. When I was cuddling with Edward, that was one of the first times where she could tell I was going to overload if she kept it up. So she told me to relax and spend some time with Edward. Then the game started.
"Do you mind if we stop by Rosalie and Emmett's room really quick? I have to tell him something." I was smiling at this. Edward nodded, I think he was curious.
We, well Edward knocked because he was holding me against his chest. I didn't fight being carried.
Emmett opened the door.
"Hey what's up Bella?" he asked.
"So what do I win?" I asked.
"What are you talking about?" he asked.
"The bet. I didn't trip once." I said proudly.
"I almost forgot, I guess I could relent a little bit on the teasing." He smiled and ruffled my hair.
"Good. Now I can go to sleep." I said to Edward.
"That was what you had to do? You couldn't wait until the morning?" He asked clearly amused.
"Nope, I would have forgotten." The way I said it made it sound so obvious.
"Ok. So not only did you win the game, you also won a bet against Emmett. I am very proud of you." I could tell he was laughing because I could feel him shaking.
"Thank you." I said and kissed him quickly. That was when we got to his room. He let me down so I could go change. That was when I noticed what he had changed into. He was in pajama bottoms and a plain t-shirt. I had very rarely seen him like this. If we were at my hose, he went home to change into other clothes when I was asleep. When we were he would hold me until I fell asleep and then change into other clothes. Alice laid out some cute pajam bottoms that had a matching frilly top. That was when I had a good idea.
"Edward, would you mind if I wore one of your t-shirts? I really don't want to wear that top." I said grimacing at the thing. It was cute, but I wouldn't be comfortable in it.
"Of course." He said as he went into his dresser and got another plain t-shirt out and handed it to me.
I went into the bathroom and changed, brushed my teeth, and pulled my hair up. I then went back into his room. He was lying on the bed. I instantly ran to him.
"I had a lot of fun today." I said.
"It was." The way he said it made me realize that he was thinking about something.
"What are you thinking?" I asked.
"Well today made me realize that, as much as I don't want this life for you, it's what you want. And a part of me wants that too." He finished kissing my hair.
"What made you think that?"
"I was thinking about when we played this before you came into my life. It was never this much fun and I want you to be here when Emmett pulls one of his stupid pranks, or when Alice insists that we do movie nights. I want to hold you forever and never let go." He said this looking at me with so much passion. I knew that if I tried to talk my voice would crack. So instead I kissed him with as much force as I could. We pulled away both gasping. While I was trying to get my breathing under control there was a knock on the door.
"Come in." Edward said.
It was Alice.
"I told you so." She said and then left. Edward was confused but I understood perfectly. When she told me earlier that this would end well for me, she meant that Edward would finally come to terms with me becoming a vampire.
"What was that about?" he asked me.
"Just something she mentioned earlier." I kind of shrugged it off.
"Ok." He could tell that was all I wanted to say. He knew if he pressed it further I would tell him but he didn't.
I kissed him one last time.
"Goodnight Edward." I said.
"Goodnight my beautiful Bella." He replied. He then started to hum my lullaby.
This is going to be one interesting family to spend eternity with, was my last thought before I drifted off into a peaceful sleep.
