Sorry for this A/N I hate them too. But the pictures of some of their stuff will be on my profile.

Some people think their lives are perfect, you know? Perfect hair, perfect eyes, they have a perfect boyfriend, perfect job, an all together perfect life. Well aren't they lucky?

All my life I have strived to become a writer and the closest I've gotten was an English teacher. I live in Chicago, in a one room apartment, and it's not like I don't like my job but it wouldn't hurt if the kids were a little nicer. Every day I come home with an even bigger headache then when I left. And with Alice trying to constantly take me out shopping; it's not helping get better.

Don't get me wrong I love Alice and all, but with wanting to continuously go out; I even more tired.

So I went on the internet to see if I could get a job somewhere-anywhere with people acting their ages- and couldn't find anything. So I called Alice, she always knows what to do. She picked up on the second ring.

"Hello……" she answered in a sing-song voice.

"Hey, Alice, listen, I was wandering if you could help me find a job? You know something I could handle?" there was a long pause before she said anything.

"Umm… how about we meet somewhere and we can talk about it?"

"Sure, meet me at the music store."

"The one inside the mall?...Please, please, please, please, please, please, please the mall? I haven't been there with you for one WHOLE WEEK!!"

"Fine, meet me in 30 minutes."

"'Kay! See you in a bit."

After hanging up with Alice I decided I should at least make myself look decent. I went into my room's bathroom and took a shower. When I got out I went into my very fashionable-walk-in (thanks to Alice) closet and went to the very back, where all y comfortable clothes were. I pulled out a black t-shirt with a white heart in the middle that said "Back off, I bite" on the front of it in blood red letters, a pair of dark but-no-yet- black boot-cut jeans, and a pair of tennis shoes.(made up the shirt, so you'll have to picture it yourself sorry) I went outside in got in my blue BMW M3 Coupe 2008.

Fifteen minutes later I was walking in to the mall towards the music store. While waiting for Alice I decided it was time to get some new CD. I decided to buy four: Christina Aguilera's-Christina Aguilera, and Stripped (two of her albums)-Katherine McPhee's album; Katherine McPhee-and Rihanna's- A Girl Like Me. When I was giving the cashier the money for the CDs he looked towards the door with his mouth open. I knew before I even turned around who it was. She walked up to me and tapped my shoulder, when I turned around there stood Alice wearing a green and white flower knee-length dress with white high-heels.

"Hi, Bella you ready to go?"

"Go where?"

"You said you wanted to talk so we're going to SHOPPPPPPPPPPPPP!! And you can tell me on the way. Come on let's go!"

Thirty stores, sixty shopping bags, six trips to the car, and many blisters later we sat down in the food court to eat some food.

"So what was it that you wanted to tell me?" Alice asked cheerfully. How she still has all that energy I will never know.

"Well this morning when I woke up I realized how boring my life really was. So I decided why not get a more interesting job and pick up my life! Well I went on line and read job section in the news paper. And guess what I found?"

"A fashion designer job?!" huh, Alice and her clothes.

"No, Alice but wouldn't that be fun?" I asked sarcastically.

"Shut up, Bella. You know that with your fashion sense and designing skills you could do the job. You just have to start dressing right is all."

"Okay whatever, anyways I couldn't find anything and thought you might be able to help me. What with you knowing people around the world and all."

It took her a while but she finally thought of something, "Well, you remember me telling you about Edward right?"

"Yeah." Edward was Alice's adoptive brother who got married a couple-a-years-ago.

"….and how he has four kids and his wife left him?"


"Well I was talking to him on the phone the other day and he said he needed someone who could take care of them when he couldn't…."


"Ugh! Geez Bella you can be so oblivious some times. He's looking for a nanny and asked me if I knew any one that was good with kids. I told him I'd look."

"But doesn't he live always in San Diego? Alice I am not going to drive 29 hours just for a job."

"Honey, you won't be driving you can go by plane."

"I'll think about it, but right now all I want to do is lie down and go to sleep."

"Fine, let's go."

When I got back home I went straight to the bathroom. Not even caring about the thousand of bags that I left at the front door. I turn on the water so it was just right, stripped off my clothes, and got in the tub.

Three days later

I woke up to the sound of someone pounding on my door. I got and when I open the door there was Alice, standing there like it was normal for people to be up at….5:43 in the morning.

"Alice is there a reason you woke me up at five In the morning?"

"Well obviously Bella. I came to help you get ready to go!"

"Where am I going?"

"Are you serious? Did you already forget?"


Alice stood there looking at me like I was crazy. "Today's the day you fly in to meet Edward and his kids." Oh yeah, now I remember I was going to San Diego for a while. "Well go get in the shower, I'll pick out your clothes and get you all packed up."

"Alright thank you Alice."

"Yeah, yeah I know. Now go!"

When I got in the shower I started thinking about Edward and if he would like me or not. I mean, yeah I'm going to watch his kids for him but he doesn't even know me! What if I was some molester or something? Whatever I picked up my favorite shampoo-strawberry scented- and washed my hair thoroughly. Once I was done with that I got me freesia scented body wash and washed myself.

After I got out of the shower I open the door to find that Alice had laid out a blue knee-length Lolita dress with some white heels to match. When I was fully clothed I walked out to the living room to see Alice trying to take the suitcase she packed to her car.

"Here Alice let me get that why don't you just go and bring the rest of the bags out here? Mm'Kay?"

Ten minutes later all five extra-large bags were in Alice's car and I was sitting in front of the mirror while Alice did my make-up.


When we got to the airport, and I was getting ready to get on the plane, you could tell Alice was about to cry.

"I'll miss you Bella!!"

"I'll miss you to Alice! I'll call as soon as I get off the plane and have my luggage."

"Okay. You better not forget! Or ruin your make-up! I put an extra make-up bag in one of your suitcases. You know just in case."

I rolled my eyes, "Thanks Alice I will diffidently get up early to put it on."

"Ha-ha very funny. Tell Edward I said 'hi'"

"Will do, bye Alice!!"

"Bye Bella have fun!"

A couple of hours later I got off the plane and went straight to baggage claim. With a cart that is. After getting all of my luggage I pulled out my phone and called Alice.


"Hey Alice I just landed and I got my luggage. Now I am waiting for….Oh there he is."

"Oh, Bella I am so glad you got there safely. I'm sorry for cutting this short but Jasper's hear."

"Okay well then don't mind me. I won't keep you waiting. Have fun Alice."

"Shut up. I love you."

"I love you too. Bye."


Once I got off the phone with Alice I pushed the cart, with both hands, up to the man with the sign that said Isabella Swan in black letters with blood red outlining and hand prints on it.

"Hello," I said as politely as I could.

"Hello, you are Miss Isabella Swan I presume."

"Yes, sir and please call me Bella."

"Edward it's nice to meet you."

"Nice sign, I like it," and I really meant it. I had never seen a sign with so much detail. Especially for someone's name.

"I'm sure my kids would love to hear that, thank you."

"Mmmhmm. Umm… where are your kids?" I asked uncertain, looking away from his eyes. They were a piercing green with topaz circling them. His hair was a soft looking bronze color that made just want to run my fingers through it.

"Bella?" Edward said snapping me out of my thoughts. I looked up to see a crooked grin on his face smiling down at me. "My kids are at school right now they shoud be home in a few hours, so we better get going."

"Okay," that was all that would come out of my mouth at the time.

"Here let me help you with this?" he said it more as a question then a statement.

"Umm.. thanks." I whispered.

He led me out of the air port to a silver Volvo that had three car seats, and a booster seat. We went around to the trunk and started putting my bags in.

"Geez how many bags do you have?" he asked out of breath.

"Five," I answered not thinking. "Oh!" I exclaimed, "I didn't pack my stuff. Alice did." There was an understanding look on his face now.

"Well that explains it."

We, mostly Edward, got all the bags in the car then headed to his house. It took about thirty minutes to an hour to get to Edwards house.
