A/N: I was very dissapointed with the amount of reviews I got. :( BUT, let's take a page from ashel-13's book!


Recap: "Bella have you seen my cousin?"

'Well crap.' I thought to myself, 'I should of guessed, a new student on the same exact day Alice's cousins were supposed to arrive? Not likely.'

"I'll bring him right to you." I told her, not even bothering to answer her question.

I slowly turned my head towards him and looked him over quickly. He works out. I noted in appreciation.

"You're coming with me." I informed him. He didn't look the least bit surprised. So I added, "To see Alice."

And then I realized as a realization washed over his face, that he was incredibly good at masking his emotions. Wonder who taught him that. I wondered idly.

He chuckled, deep and throaty, I shivered.

"Are you cold?" He asked, genuinely concerned. He was already reaching inside the room for his jacket.

I started to protest but immediately stopped when he placed the jacket on my shoulders. It smelled wonderful. And me, being one to be oh-so-subtle asked:

"What fabric softener do you use? This smells amazing." I took another whiff.

"I don't use fabric softener." He stated, looking at me like I was a bit mental.

"Cologne?" I asked as we walked down the hallway, me leading him to the lunchroom.

He shook his head. I shrugged and put the jacket on, enjoying how the scent engulfed me.

"So, you're Alice's cousin, huh?" I asked Edward, turning my head a fraction of an inch so I could see him in my periphiral vision.

"Yeah, and your her band-mate?" he asked looking at me questioningly.

"And best friend." I added.

He nodded in understanding.

We walked in silence the rest of the way to the lunchroom and quietly scuffled into the boisterous noise.

However, above all the noise their was a big, booming "EDDIE!"

And me, being startled easily, fell to the floor. As I braced myself for the impact, I felt two warm arms wrap around my waist pulling me back up against their chest.

I blushed and looked up into the piercing green eyes above me. It seemed like we stayed that way forever, staring at each other with an intensity so intense it was cleansing to the soul.

But Alice, trying to live up her annoying reputation, called, "Get your butts over here!"
