(A/N: I know some people don't read these, but I just wanted to say, this is my first fanfic. Unlike most authors, I'm not going to ask you to be nice, I want heavy skepticism people!)

It was the night before Christmas at the Cullen's new house (COUGH mansion COUGH) down in Alaska. Alice was jumping up and down in excitement with boxes and boxes of Christmas decorations (obviously bought brand new) lying out all over the surrounding floor.

"Oh, Bella, don't be a kill-joy!" Alice squealed upon my grimace.

"Was it really necessary to raid Alaska of their Christmas decorations?" I said, sounded strangled from shock.

"Oh, hush Bella, it'll be fun!" she continued to squeal happily.

"What do you need me to do?" I sighed, wanting to be as helpful as possible.

"Set up the karaoke machine," she suggested

I froze, karaoke? "Alice are you insane?" I choked out.

"I resent that," Alice pouted

"Alice not all of us can sing," I informed her

"Oh, well that's too bad, because everyone has been assigned a song and a dance they need to preform tonight." she said matter-of-factly

"And what song was I assigned?" I wheezed out, terrified.

She pulled a piece of paper out of her pocket with exaggerated slowness, unfolded and quickly scanned the page.

"Santa Baby," she said in a bored tone, still eyeing the paper.

I felt the air whoosh out of my lungs and everything blacked out.

2 hours later

"When will she wake up Alice?" I heard Edward hiss.

I cracked my eyes open to see Edward and Alice sitting on the foot of mine and Edward's bed, waiting for me to wake up.

"She is awake Edward," Alice glared at him.

He quickly quipped his head in my direction, I waved shyly.

"Are you okay, love?" he asked me worriedly.

"Just fine," I trailed off, trying to remember what had caused me to collapse, then it hit me, Alice's karaoke.

A/N: okay, I know, vampires cant faint, dont go all "Ur a Twilight N00b" on me. It is one of Bella's powers in my story, she has human reactions, she can blush, cry and yes, sleep and faint. R&R I want to know whether I should go on
