The Scavenger Hunt

The Scavenger Hunt


"Oh, Bella!" Alice trilled. Uh-oh. I knew that tone. Whenever Alice used that tone, it only meant one thing. We were going shopping.

"Yes Alice?" I replied warily.

"Come down here, please!" I was up in Edward's room looking through his CDs. I picked myself up and trudged downstairs. Jasper, Rosalie, and Emmett were on the couch and Edward was sitting on the arm of the couch. Alice was bouncing up and down excitedly at the bottom of the stairs.

"Guess what Bella?!" she said.

"What?" I replied, waiting for her to give me the dreadful news.

"We're going on a scavenger hunt!! At the mall!!" Alice said that like she had just won a million dollar shopping spree. I ran over to Edward and clung to him.

"Don't make me go!!" I cried. Edward looked at me helplessly.

"No can do love. She's making us all go." I felt a teensy bit better knowing Edward was coming.

"Well Alice, since I have no choice, could you please explain?" I asked, knowing we were in for a long speech.

"Ok, well we will split up into two teams. Team Butterfly will be Emmett, Bella, and Edward."

"Omigosh, I love butterflies!!" Emmett interrupted. Rosalie promptly smacked his head. "Ow!! Sorry Alice." Emmett said, rubbing his head.

"That's ok Emmett. As I was saying, Team Butterfly will be Emmett, Bella, and Edward. Team Marshmallow will be Jasper, Rosalie, and I." I looked at Edward questioningly. He could tell by the look on my face that I was wondering about the team names. He shrugged and rolled his eyes.

"The rules of the scavenger hunt are as followed: Each item(s) is worth a certain number of points. Whoever has the most points at the end of the two hours wins. However, to qualify you must be at the meeting place when the two hours is up. If not, your team is disqualified. You may not follow the other team around to see where they're going. You must do it on your own. Basically, no cheating Emmett."

"Hey! Why'd you only say my name and not anyone else's?" Emmett whined.

"Because you're the only one that can't be trusted. The team captain will keep track of the points and the items. He or she will also keep track of the 1,000 I'm giving you. The team captain for Team Butterfly is Bella and the team captain of Team Marshmallow is Jasper."

"Why can't Edward be the captain? Or even Emmett?" I pouted. Alice knew I didn't want to do this, so now she's making me captain? Ugh.

"Chill, Bella. I trust you more than I trust Emmett or Edward." Emmett was about to protest but Rosalie flicked him before he got a chance.

"Alright everyone. Here are two envelopes that have the money, the rules, and the items sheet in it. I'm giving you five minutes to look at the items sheet, then we're off!" Alice giggled, then bounced over to Jasper and Rosalie.

"Oh, joy." I mumbled, then I opened up the envelope.
