A/N: Hi everyone! I figured that since Halloween is coming up, then I should involve our favorite characters, THE CULLENS! So, this is a humor story about a Cullen Halloween and I hope that you enjoy it!
Disclaimer: I do not own Twilight or any of its characters. I just put them in costumes.
"Happy Halloween, Bella!" I jumped up about a foot into the air as Alice leaped through my window, her arms up above her head as if she was preparing to do a cartwheel.
I put my hand over my heart, hoping that it would eventually restart. Taking a deep and steadying breath, I turned to glare at Alice. "What is the matter with you!? Isn't it a bit early to be jumping through people's windows, scaring them to death? You nearly gave me a heart attack!"
Alice rolled her eyes and waved her hand dismissively. "Come on, Bella. Don't be a hypochondriac. We all know that you're too young to have a heart attack."
"Not when I have to spend half of my time with a bunch of hyper and overenthusiastic vampires," I muttered.
"I heard that!" she shrieked in response. She glanced at the clock on my bedside table and I cocked an eyebrow, waiting for her to register the time. It was now 9:00 in the morning, and I had only been up and about for 15 minutes at the most. If she hadn't noticed already, I was barely awake.
Which meant that I was even more clumsy- I had already tripped in the short fifteen minutes I had been on my feet - thanks to my lack of sleep. Edward was on a hunting trip, so I slept here alone. Bored, tired, and alone. I groaned internally as I thought of last night. I was hardly able to go to sleep without losing my sanity that had already ebbed away to a severe minimum.
And, because of the tiny vampire that was standing across from me, I had a very short fuse. Alice looked back to me and shrugged. "All right, I guess it was a little early to be doing this. But I'm a vampire. You can't blame me." I narrowed my eyes and let out a frustrated sigh. She ignored me. "So, what do you want to be for Halloween?"
I shook my head in disbelief. "Alice, I don't even like Halloween. I'm really not interested in the whole 'dress-up-like-a-mythical-or-scary-creature' thing."
Her lower lip jutted out into a pout. "I'm hurt," she said, putting both hands across her chest and bowing her head. I hated it when she did that. She was so good at making herself look so pitiful and upset.
"Cut that out!" I turned around, looking away from her before I gave in. But she flew in front of me, her sad eyes directly in front of mine. I slapped my hands over my face, shielding myself from Alice's experienced puppy-dog face. "I'm not falling for that!" Alice sniffled, and then whimpered. "Gah! Okay, fine, I'll celebrate Halloween! Just stop looking at me like that!"
Alice smiled, proud of her accomplishment. "Works every time," she said with a snap of her fingers.
"Edward isn't going to want to celebrate Halloween. Good luck with trying to get him into a costume," I mumbled.
Her expression was shocked. "Bella, just because he is on a hunting trip doesn't mean that I can't persuade him to celebrate from miles away! How could you have so little faith in me? I'm disappointed." I sighed and rolled my eyes as I plopped down on my unmade bed, considering going back to sleep.
I threw my arm over my eyes and yawned hugely. "Did you manage to bug him enough that he is actually going to play along?"
"Good grief, Bella. You're awfully cranky in the morning." I didn't even answer her. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would seem cranky after an overly enthusiastic vampire comes flying through a window to annoy you into insanity. "Anyway," Alice continued, "I sort of already bought him a costume. So he had to agree!"
"You bought him a costume? Alice, you're insane."
"Watch it. I bought you two costumes. If you behave, you'll get the one that you will definitely appreciate. And if you are stubborn, I'm giving you the one that I picked out. And I can guarantee you will not like it," she threatened.
I became silent, not wanting to push it any further. I didn't want to wear a costume at all. But I definitely didn't want to wear a costume that would be a walking embarrassment. I didn't want to take my chances.
I felt the bed shift as Alice sat down next to me. "What are you doing in there?" she asked, knocking her hand against my forearm which still sheilded my eyes.
"Sleeping," I muttered in a voice that sounded even more grouchy than I already was.
"Isabella Swan, you are not going back to sleep. You have to help me put up Halloween decorations!"
I rolled my eyes. Not that Alice could see or anything, but the situation called for some eye-rolling. And I'm sure that everyone knew very well that Alice did not need any help putting up decorations. She could do it herself in less than a minute. I could just picture her zooming around her three-story mansion, throwing random decor around the rooms.
"Do it yourself," I snapped. "You can get the decorations ready at your house without me."
Alice snorted. "I already have decorations up at my house, silly. I was talking about getting your house ready."
I could just see Charlie's surprised expression now. It was definitely an experience that I wouldn't mind skipping.
"I am embracing my inner ounce of sanity. Do not disturb," I said as I buried my face even farther into the crease at my elbow, almost rendering me incapable of getting oxygen.
"Very poetic, Bella. Now get your lazy self up and out of bed before I carry you downstairs." I didn't answer. Alice sighed, frustrated. "Don't make me give you the costume that I picked out. I've already seen how you will react if I give you that one. It isn't pretty."
"Fine! I'm getting up," I said around another huge yawn.
October 31st was now considered my least favorite day of the year.
