Chapter Before -
"Emmett?" I questioned, the big Shrek head bobbled up and down.
"Oh my God" I gasped and laughed a little, Shrek laughed with me.
"Does that mean Rose is here?" the head bobbled again.
"Is she Princess Fiona?" Shrek shrugged his shoulders.
"Hm, well I haven't seen any Fiona's here Shrek and may I ask how you're supposed to find her if you can't see out that mask?"
He shrugged his shoulders again and I shook my head, typical Emmett, "I'll keep my eye out for you"
"Thanks" his voice boomed and a green hand clamped down on my shoulder. I shrugged him off and walked away.
Great, now I'm seeking two people. How is the romantic again?
Chapter 25 – Happily Ever After.. For Tonight
Circling the room for which felt like the hundredth time, I sighed as I sat down at a white linen table, taking a sip of some kind of fruity wine. I picked at the white threads whilst whishing the wine around my mouth to taste the full flavour.
Lost in my own little world I hardly noticed that someone had sat down next to me.
"Belle? Seriously that is messed up! You got ripped!"
"Rose?" I looked up quickly to be confronted with a dark purple mask.
"Um, yeah?" she answered back like I had asked the most stupid question in the world.
"Wow you look amazing!" I pulled her out of her seat to catch a better look at her. She wore a floor length gown that hugged all her curves, a corset bodice with puffs for sleeves. Some people would l think it looked ridiculous, but Rose definitely pulled it off. She had gathered her hair on one side and curled it up and flowed right down to her waist.
"I know right!"
"You definitely suit being a Rapunzel, though you haven't got the hair length" I poked my tongue out at her.
"Pfft! Rapunzel decided on a haircut" she sneered back.
"I think Rapunzel thought right, it looks stunning!" I gushed quickly giving her a hug, "Have you seen Emmett yet?"
"No, have you?" she raked her eyes over my face. I tried so hard to keep a neutral expression, "By the look on your face I am going to say he is something stupid"
I nodded quickly, "You definitely won't miss him that's for sure"
She looked livid. Though I'm sure once she spotted him she would laugh it off.
"First he doesn't even ask me to this and now he's going to ruin it by being something stupid!"
"Rose, it really isn't that bad, it's pretty hilarious" I trailed off.
I sat back down at the table, "Have you seen Alice and Jasper?"
Rose sat next to me and sighed, "Yes, aren't they just the cutest couple!"
"Speaking of couples, Rose have you seen my other half?"
"Sure have and let's just say you have one handsome fella Bella" she laughed a little, "I'm a poet and didn't even know it"
I rolled my eyes and gave her a sympathy pat to her arm, "Rose I think Emmett is rubbing off on you"
She scowled, "Your Prince Charming is over there" she pointed across the room. I turned my attention to see Alice sitting on Jasper's lap and a man sitting next to them.
"I best let you go find Emmett" I got up from my seat.
"Have fun" she said before I made my getaway. I pushed and weaved myself through people that were dancing, coming to a complete stop, mouth dropping open as I stopped at the table were they sat.
There he was. Edward, wearing black tights and a white baggy shirt, a red cape draped his shoulders and his hair was combed back neatly. No wonder I couldn't find him!
His green eyes surrounded by a black mask locked with mine. Nobody could mistake those green eyes; this was definitely my Edward, my Prince Charming.
I couldn't help the smile that graced my face, my cheeks hurt. A small crooked smile was what I got for a return. He gracefully got up from his seat and made his way over to me, his arm hooking around my waist as my arm made its way around his neck, his lips covering mine hard and warm. The kiss only lasted a second but felt like forever.
"Perfect" Alice squealed, making Edward and I break apart. I glanced over to her to see her admiring a picture.
"Definitely a fairy-tale couple you two" she smiled brightly and I smiled back turning my attention back to Edward, who grabbed my hand and led me out to the dance floor.
He placed both his arms around my waist, pulling me tightly against him, my arms winding around his neck as I rest my head on his shoulder.
"You look exquisite" he murmured into my ear.
I felt the blood race to my cheeks, "You do too"
He chuckled lightly as he swayed us softly to the music.
"I wonder if Emmett found Rose yet" I lifted my head to look around.
"Not yet, love" he chuckled again, "In fact I think Rose knows who Emmett is and is avoiding him"
I laughed a little too hard at that, "Definitely a Rose thing to do"
I felt Edwards hand moving slowly up and down my back.
"What possessed Emmett to dress up as Shrek?"
"No idea" Edward shook his head, "He has no brain, I swear"
"Well I guess he's lucky that Rose does"
"I think you mean that makes us all lucky, love" he kissed my forehead. That wasn't enough for me; I pushed myself up onto my tip toes and placed my lips softly against his. He responded automatically slowly kissing me back, his hands moving to my face and his thumbs sliding under my mask at each side. Slowly he broke the kissed and looked into my eyes as he removed the mask.
I blushed under his intense gaze and reached up to remove his mask. He smiled down at me before giving me a quick kiss on the lips.
"Just in time"
"Huh?" I murmured back.
A loud chime played throughout the room.
"It represents that its midnight" he whispered against my lips.
The loud chime played again.
"It took me forever to find you" I whispered back.
"But in the end you did and for that I am glad" he pressed his lips to mine as the final chine rang thorough.
Tonight was my glimpse of an happily ever after and I couldn't wait to see what else was ahead.
There you go my lovelies, an update. Please Review!
