New Kid on the Block

On the way out of the class, I looked down at my drawings to see that I had drawn many hearts, some with the initials EM written inside.

Chapter 6

A Date worth Shopping For


After Biology, the day passed quite uneventfully. Biology was my only class with Edward.

After the bell had finally rung, ending my last class and this day of school, I saw Edward in the parking lot, with a girl in front of him, flirting shamelessly. I walked closer, only to see that it was, in fact, Elise.

"Oh, Eddie. Hi Eddie. Will you please go out with me this Friday? We could go out to eat, then go see a movie. Which movie should we see? How about P.S. I Love You?" Edward looked disgusted at Elise. I decided I should probably go and save him.

I walked up to Edward, kissed him on the cheek and said, "So Eddie–poo, we're on for Friday night, right? We could go eat out, see a movie, and then drive around. Oh, wait, who's this girl? Oh, yeah, hey, Elise, right? What are you doing here?"

"Ugh, Bella!" were her last words as she walked away. I laughed at her retreating back as I did to those girls at lunch today.

I started walking away when I heard Edward yell at me, "So Friday night, movies and dinner? I'll pick you up at 6?"

"Whatever," I yelled back.

Only after getting in my car did I realize what had just happened. I had a date with Edward, set for tomorrow night. I immediately called Alice, my fashion adviser and my shopping buddy, although to me, shopping was still torture. She picked up on the second ring. "Hello?"

"OMG, hey Alice! It's Bella," I said, "Guess what? You'll be so happy to hear this."

"Let me guess? You got a date with Edward Cullen?" Alice responded.

"Oh. My. God. Alice, you're psychic! How did you know?" I screeched.

"I saw the way you two were looking at each other. It was kind of hard to ignore;" Alice commented, "Now I get to shop for new clothes for the date!"

"Ok, so shopping tonight. Pick me up at 6? It's actually kind of a funny story…" I trailed off.

"Tell me about it tonight when we're driving to Port Angeles," Alice replied.

"Totally! Bye Alice, Love you!" and with that, I hung up.


Alice picked me up at 6, as promised, right after I had finished all my homework. I jumped into her Porsche and we sped off. I had been waiting for her to get here, and I had made dinner for Charlie. We chatted the whole way to Port Angeles. I told her about my first day and my class with Edward and she told me all that had been going on between Jasper and her. They had only gone on one or two dates.

"Yesterday night, when we were on the phone, he told me he loved me!" Alice confided.

"Oh my god, Al. That's awesome!!! I really think you two will last a long time together," I told her.


Rosalie had decided to drag me and Jasper to the mall at Port Angeles after I had told her about the date. I wasn't happy about being dragged shopping, but I was happy that I wasn't alone, even if Jazz had no reason to be there. She had to literally drag Jasper into the car. I had only agreed because she had let me drive her red Mercedes convertible (A/N: Is that Rosalie's car? I forget). The car was silent the whole ride to Port Angeles.

When we got there, Rose had to literally drag me and Jasper out of the car to get us to go shopping. We walked into the nearest store, and our torture began.


All of a sudden, I saw a flash of bronze hair.

"Omg," I said to Al, "Tell me that is NOT Edward!?"

"Um… that's not Edward?" Alice replied.

"Oh no! It is! Omg, come on, we HAVE to get out of here!!!" I whisper-shrieked at my best friend.

Just then, he turned, and looked as surprised to see me as I had been about 5 seconds ago. He looked around, and then back at me, I guess to see if he had any other escape routes? And then started walking towards me and Al. I knew he had seen me right then.

In about 10 seconds, he reached us.

"Um, hey Bella, what's up? I wasn't expecting to see you here," he said.

Inside, I was freaking out, but I tried to act cool. I never knew a boy could affect me like this.

"Oh, hey Edward, me and Alice decided to hang out together and go shopping. Uh, how about you?" Tell me he's not gay!

"Yeah, Rosalie decided to drag me and Jasper shopping for some new clothes. So yeah…" I gave out an internal sigh of relief.

"Jasper!" I heard Al shriek.

"Ow, A, that was my ear," I told her, but she completely ignored me and ran towards Jasper and Rosalie coming towards us.

"Hey Bella!" Rosalie said, as she headed over towards me and Edward.

"Hey Rose. Wait… how do you know Edward?" I questioned.

"We're cousins," Edward cut in and answered for Rose.

"Oh… ok." I said slowly.

A few minutes later,

"Well, this is sufficiently awkward," Rosalie said, after a long silence between the three of us left, Edward, me, and her. Ali had gone off with Jasper to do who knows what. "I wish Emmett was here," Rose continued, wistfully.

"Wait a sec!" I thought to myself. I turned to Rosalie.

"Rose? Could I talk to you privately?" I said.

"Sure Bell, whatever you say." she replied.

"Excuse us, Edward," I said, as I walked a while away, making sure Edward couldn't hear us.

"Rose! How could you and Alice do this to me? Set me up?! With Edward, no less?!" I hissed.

"Calm down, Bella!" Rose comforted, "First of all, you know you like it."

I tried to hide the blush creeping up onto my cheeks.

"Second of all, don't bother yelling at me, it was Alice's idea; she just needed me to help her get Edward to come too. Besides, you know it's what she does, other than shopping for your clothes. Oh, hey Bella, here, take this. Alice told me to give this to you. It's for the date tomorrow."

"Wait, what?" I asked, "How did you know about my date with Edward?"

"I have my sources," she replied giving me the bags of stuff.

"Whatever, Rose. Here, just take my phone and call Emmett." I told her.

"Yee!" she squealed, grabbing my phone and speed-dialing Emmett.

I walked back to Edward to give her a little privacy, just as Edward said, "Hey Bella, you hungry? Let's go grab some dinner."

A/N: Woah, haven't been on the cpu for a while and it's been hectic at our house. Sorry about the really late story. So yeah. More reviews, faster I type, that's about it. Love you guys!
