Saying I was nervous was an understatement.
Less then 13 hours ago I was talking to Edward and in 2 hours I had to go pick them up from the airport. And to add to that my wedding was tomorrow. Tomorrow! I don't know what I was so nervous about. When I was little I always dreamed of a beautiful wedding with white and red roses and surrounded with the ones I loved most, which included my prince charming. Jasper was my prince charming; at least I thought he was. No he is, I am going to marry him and we are going to grow old together. I love him with all my heart. Tonight night is the bachelorette party; Alice said she was planning that. I guess she talked to the mom's about it earlier. Knowing Alice she probably went overboard. I rolled over on my side and stared at Jasper. He looked so peaceful when he slept. Remembering what time it was I gently shook his shoulder.
"Jasper, honey, you need to wake up," I said in a little voice.
"Mhmmm," was the reply I got.
"You have work today, remember?"
Jasper worked at a little coffee shop in the morning while going to school at night, but instead of going to school tonight he had his own bachelor party to intend too.
I rolled off the bed and cracked a couple eggs in the skillet. My hands were shaking slightly still nervous about the events coming up this afternoon and defiantly tomorrow. I pulled out some bacon and laid them on a different skillet, watching the grease pop everywhere.
"I smell bacon," Jasper said while walking into the kitchen and taking a seat at the table.
"Good morning to you too," I retorted as I rolled my eyes.
"Good morning Bella," he said, I could hear the smile in his voice.
I scooped the eggs out of the skillet along with the bacon and placed it on a plate. I walked over to the table and placed it in front of him. Jasper smiled and dug in. Something about him was off today, maybe it was due to his weird behavior while I was talking to Alice. I would have to ask him about that. But right now I was really in need of a hot bubbly bath. I told Jasper where I was going and left for the bathroom. I turned the water on scorching hot and poured my favorite vanilla bubble bath into the water. After stripping down I slowly placed my right leg in and then my left. I felt the water burn my skin but it felt really good. Slowly I was fully in the tub, my head resting on the smooth, cool surface behind me. I felt my tense muscles start to relax and soon my mind wandered.
Where is your boy tonight, I hope he is a gentleman
Slowly I opened my eyes and reached for my phone, not bothering to look at the caller i.d.
"Hello?" I groaned.
"Oh well hello, I'm trying to reach my best friend Bella who was supposed to meet me at the airport 15 minutes ago, do you happen to know where I can find her?"
"Alice!" I jumped out of the bath, unplugged the drain and threw a towel over my body. "Oh my god, I'm so sorry, I totally forgot, I'm coming!"
I grabbed the first thing I could find in my closet and threw it on.
"Just hurry up," she laughed and hung up.
I threw my hair in a ponytail and ran out the door. Soon I arrived at the Washington airport and ran inside. I craned my neck looking around for a black haired pixie and Edward, which I had no idea what he looked like. Soon I found her, standing by herself flipping through a magazine. I giggled to myself, typical Alice. I dodged through all the people and placed my hands over Alice's bright blue eyes.
"Guess whooo," I sang, trying and not succeeding to disguise my voice.
She gasped and threw her arms around my neck. I laughed and tossed my arms around her in return.
"Bella! Oh I missed you so much!" She gushed as she released me from her death grip.
"I miss you too!" I replied while looking at the people around us. "Where's Edward?"
I saw her face drop a little. "He had a family emergency but he will be here for your wedding."
"Oh," I said trying to hide the disappointment in my voice. Well, at least time Alice and I will have lots of time together.
We headed to my car after grabbing all four of Alice's bags from the baggage claim. I was still confused on how a person needs four suitcases of clothes for only a couple of days. But then I remembered it was Alice.
"So what have I missed these last 12 years or so?" Alice questioned.
I turned my car on and turned towards the exit. "Nothing really. Just started college and I'm living with my fiancé."
She made a funny face and mumbled an "oh". I looked over at her, when she didn't meet my gaze my curiosity took over.
"Okay, what is it with you and Jasper? Whenever I mention him to you or you to him you guys give me the weirdest reactions."
She looked over at me and faked a smile. "What does Jasper look like?" She asked with a curious look.
I pulled my eyebrows together at her random question but answered anyway. "Uhh he has blond hair and blue eyes."
A surprised look crossed her face. "Is his hair more a dirty blond and a little shaggy?"
My eyes widened. "Yeah! Do you know him or something?"
She quickly shook her head. "No, no, no I…I think I've just seen him somewhere," she answered, averting her gaze out the window.
I knew she was lying but decided to drop it.
"So before you ask, when are we going shopping?" I asked with a cringe, waiting for her response.
She jumped in her seat and her eyes went wild. She clapped her hands together and smiled. "Okay, so I thought we could go tonight but then I thought I would be kinda tired and then I had this brilliant idea and decided we would have a girl night and watch movies and stuff and just catch up," she took a deep breath then continued, "and then we will shop after the wedding so you will have clothes for your honeymoon! Oh and I was sorry to hear you couldn't book any plane tickets so you can leave after the wedding, but oh well! More time for shopping!" she sang the last part and clapped her hands together for retelling her great idea.
My face must have looked horrid because her smile faded. I had a feeling between nausea and hunger. I didn't know where that last one came from but before I could think to long on it her smile popped back on her face.
"I have a great idea!" she said enthusiastically while I rolled my eyes. "We have to go to the spa! Total mani pedis! And don't give me that look. It almost hurt my feelings." She jutted her bottom lip out at that. I sighed and gave in. Soon we were a spa I have never heard of. We both got french pedicures and manicures. That was very relaxing, I have to admit. After the massages and waxing we arrived back at my apartment. Right when my hand touched the handle to my door a thought popped in my head, will Jasper come home after work or go straight to his party? If it was the first one are him and Alice going to act weird or what? But if it is the second one then he will probably get home when we are asleep or the guys will make him stay with them. Probably the last one. I grabbed the keys out of my purse and swung the door open.
"Here is the wonderful apartment," I said while waving my hand out in front of me.
Alice stepped in and looked around with a slight grin on her face. She nodded and turned to me.
"You suck at decorating," she stated as she flopped down on the couch. "Nice couches though," she moved her butt around a little, "very comfy."
I rolled my eyes and eyed her bags, thrown down by the couch. "Don't worry about your luggage Alice, I got it."
I shook my head and dragged her heavy bags to the spare bedroom where Emmett usually stayed. He was staying with the boys tonight. After telling Emmett that Alice would be staying in his room he cleaned like crazy, which totally surprised me knowing Emmett. But he adores Alice so he thought he should make it bearable to sleep in. I laid the luggage on the queen sized mattress and walked back to the living room and sat down next to my best friend.
"Now what?" I sighed, as I stretched my arms above my head.
"Well," she started while looking around, "we can go rent some movies since I see you don't have any."
"Hey it's not my fault we are busy and are never home," I retorted as I crossed my arms over my chest.
"Okay so here is the plan," she started turning towards me, I rolled my eyes. She gave me a pointed look. I sighed and gestured for her to continue. "Okay so we are going to go rent fab movies and get ice cream and chocolate and popcorn and what not, and enjoy my first night here, and returning of best friends! And your last day as being single!"
She finished with a smile, waiting for my response.
"That sounds pretty fun Alice, and bearable" I said with a short laugh.
She gaped at me and put her hand over her heart, acting hurt. "What's that suppose to mean!"
I laughed and tossed myself at her. I squeezed my arms around her petite body. "You know I love you Alice."
"You don't think anything I do 'bearable'?" She asked.
I let her go and saw she had a pout on her face.
"Ahh Alice! I was just kidding you know that," I somewhat lied.
"Okay, let's go!"
"Hey, wait, wait, wait," I started.
Alice stopped in the middle of the living room and turned to look at me.
"Aren't we having a bachelorette party?"
She smirked at me. "Of course Bella, but that isn't until tonight."
The car ride was a short one. We arrived at Blockbuster and rented The Notebook. After we hurried to Albertsons and bought some candy and ice cream.
"Okay let's get this party started," Alice said as she switched off the lights and pushed play.
During the movie I couldn't help having second thoughts. How did Allie know Noah was the one for her? How do you know if you have found your true love or just a fling?
Halfway through the movie I looked over and noticed Alice was fast asleep. I pumped my arm in the air and whisper/yelled a woo! No bachelorette party tonight, if she stays asleep and forgets about it. When the rest of the movie finished, and I was in tears, I switched everything off and nudged Alice. She opened one eye. Then they went wide, Oh no.
"Bella!" She remembered.
"Alice, shhh your sleep talking," I whispered as I tried to pick her up.
"No I'm not silly! We have a party to intend to!" She ran over to the kitchen and picked up the phone.
"Alice," I whined, "please no. I'm not in the mood, and I hate parties!"
"Well," she sighed and smiled slightly, "to bad!"
She picked up her phone, dialed a number and put it to her ear. She noticed me still standing in front of her. "Well, go get in the shower!"
I groaned and started towards the bathroom. When I finished I wrapped a towel around my body and entered my room, lying on my bed was a pretty yellow sundress and some accessories. Well, that was certainly a surprise. After I put it on, I noticed how short it was, it ended at mid thigh. Well, that was short for me. It was strapless and just a typical yellow dress. It was tight around the bust and in little ruffles at the bottom. I turned back to my bed and put the accessories on which included, a white big beaded necklace, 2 thick white bracelets, a white little purse and white flip flops.
"I knew you would look cute in that," Alice stated as she walked in and flopped down on my bed.
"Thanks, it was certainly a surprise, I actually like it."
We both let out a giggle and I noticed what Alice was wearing. It was a pretty pick sundress like mine, but on hers there was a strap that wrapped around her neck, also she had the same accessories as mine except in silver.
"Wow you look way cute too Alice," I told her truthfully.
"Thanks. Now it's time for your hair." She got up and I followed her into my bathroom. "What? No complaints?" She asked me with a weird look.
"Hey, after seeing what I'm wearing, it put me in a good mood!" I replied while sitting down.
She shook her head and let out a giggle. As she got all her supplies out of one of her bags she realized she forgot something.
"Be right back."
She slipped out of the bathroom and came back later with a mini stereo. She turned it on and blasted it.
"There we go."
The song, Womanizer by Britney spears came on and I couldn't help but sing along. After about 5 more Britney Spears songs, she was done.
"I like it," I complemented while I stared into the mirror. My bangs were French braided back into a messy bun with a small tiara on top. It looked cute and summery.
"Alrighty, let's make like a baby and head out," Alice laughed.
"Good one," I said sarcastically, but laughed anyway.
I put the essentials in my new bag and then we were ready to go.
"Okay, let's make like Tom and Cruise," I said, while locking the door.
"Good one," Alice mocked me but giggled.
I turned around and noticed a long, shiny black limo in front of me.
"What the…" I muttered to myself.
"Let's go!" She grabbed my hand and we half ran to the long car.
A man came around and opened the door for us and we slid in. Angela, Bailey and Renee were all seated
The limo started and we made our way down the street towards our destination. Where I had no idea was…
"Alice, where are we going anyway?"
"Ohh well that's a surprise," she smirked.
I sighed and relaxed in my seat. Renee, Bailey, and Angela had pretty much the same thing Alice and I had on except in different colors. So we must not be going to some kind of club because we would have dressed up more that is defiantly a plus.
"Do you feel like you are getting married tomorrow Bella?" Renee asked, breaking me out of my thoughts. Her question made the nervous butterflies come back.
"Not really," I answered truthfully.
Us girls chatted for the next ten minutes until we arrived at our party spot. Once we got out I noticed it looked like a regular little club house that is usually by a pool or something. But there was no pool by this one; well from the angle I was at it didn't. But it defiantly looked a lot bigger then a regular club house. This isn't going to be bad at all, I thought. That was until I got inside. Every inch of that house was decorated with neon colors. Lights were everywhere moving around which made it a little hard to see. Girls covered every inch of the mini dance floor. Girls I have known since I was like 5. It was crazy! And the very last thing I saw, were the male strippers on the stage. They had fireman suits on; well most of it was off now.
"Soo do you like it?!"
"Alice," I choked out.
"Let me show you everything else before you give me your answer."
She led me through the dance floor where the girls were laughing and congratulating me as we walked by. She showed me the bathroom, kitchen and last but not least the pool. It had tiki torches surrounding the fence and a game of volleyball going.
"Alice, this is perfect," I told her honestly as we walked back inside.
She smiled at me in return and the night began. It started out pretty easy, some of the girls made us all cheeseburgers and we all drank fruity cocktails. After we played lots of fun games, including pin the hose on the firemen. That was a blast. The worst part I would have to say was having to get up on stage and have the strippers perform for me. That got pretty weird but I was so drunk I was laughing the whole time. The rest of the night was spent dancing and catching up with all of my old friends. This lasted till about 3 in the morning, we were all pooped. Alice called the limo and we made our way back home.
"Thanks guys, I had a blast," I said as I closed the door.
"Well I'm out, see you tomorrow," I sighed.
"Glad you had fun," Alice stated.
After showing Alice into her room, I settled down on my bed. I'm getting married tomorrow, I thought. I wonder how Jasper's party is going. He better not be enjoying it to much, even though I rather did enjoy mine. I hope everything goes as planned tomorrow. After about an hour more of worrying, I finally drifted to sleep.
White and pink were surrounding me everywhere. I couldn't figure out where I was. There are tons of people here, wearing beautiful dresses and very nice tuxedoes. I was standing in front of all of them but they weren't looking at me. They were staring at a white door with lace on it being opened. That's when I figured out where I was a wedding. But who's? I looked down to see what I was wearing, a blood red flowing dress with beading down the side. The girls next to me were wearing the same thing but not like mine. Mine was the most beautiful. I was a bride's maid. I watched as the beautiful bride gracefully walked to the front. Holding an assortment of roses and lilies. I was trying to make out the face to the bride but I couldn't see past the veil that was covering it up. Maybe I will recognize the finance, I thought. I looked to the left and found the groom. It can't be, I thought. The man wearing a black and white tuxedo, staring lovingly at his bride, was Jasper.
I sat up in my bed at the perfect time to hear a loud crash come from the kitchen. I checked my clock and saw it was 4:45 in the morning, who could possibly be up? Confusion crossed my face as I got up out of bed and walked towards the kitchen.
"Shit, shit, shit," Alice was mumbling as she cleaned up a glass cup.
I held in a giggle as I approached the entryway but someone happen to beat me.
"Bella?" Jasper asked as he entered from the other side of the kitchen.
Alice looked up and a weird expression went across her face. It almost look like she has seen Jasper before, but that couldn't be possible. But then the conversation earlier came back to me, Alice totally described jasper and she has never even met him before.
She finally collected herself and a red blush brightens her face.
"Sorry, I was trying to get some water and I dropped the cup and it went boom," she said quickly with a nervous giggle at the end.
That's when I looked over at Jasper. His mouth was hanging open and a surprised look was written on his face.
What was going on, I thought to myself. I took a step back so they couldn't see me but I could see them.
"Okay," Jasper started with a shaky voice, "this is going to sound weird but I think I have seen you before…but it wasn't in person."
Wait, what? Did I hear what I think I just did? How could that happen, Jasper and Alice have never met, that I know of. But he said not in person. So how can you see someone but not be in person? Only one solution came to me, in a dream or dreams.
"I know exactly what you're talking about."
Was the last thing I heard before everything went black.
