"Jasper!" I called from downstairs.

"Coming!" He called back.

As everyone filed in from our recent hunt, Edward started cracking up. He was on the ground literally laughing so hard I didn't know it was possible.

Emmett went next to him, "What's up, bro."

Edward motioned for Emmett to lower down so he could whisper in his ear.

He said something so low I couldn't hear it. Once Edward moved away Emmett came on to the floor next to him, laughing and pounding on the ground. Esme and Carlisle just walked by along with Rosalie.

"Anyone care to tell me what's going on?!" I demanded.

"No." They both said in unison still laughing.

"Fine, I'll just ask Jasper."

"Yeah, "Edward mumbled his voice full of sarcasm, "He'll tell you."

Just at that moment Jasper came down the stairs.

"Hi, love." He greeted me. I pranced over the room and into his arms. He kissed me ever so lightly. As he pulled away I caught him giving a glare to the men on the floor.

"Do you know what's up with them?" I asked.

"Umm, well, no, no, of course not!"


"Let's go upstairs."

"Yes!" I exclaimed.

He chuckled and the other too burst into more hysterics. I ignored them as I ran up the stairs with Jasper. We went into the room and he sat on the bed.

"I'll be right back." I told him as I ran off into my beloved closet.

"JASPER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" I screeched.


I jumped off the bed immediately, "Alice! What's wrong?"

She was in the center of her closet staring and the dress section. "It's gone!!!"

I ran to her side and tried to sooth her with my power. "What's gone, baby?"

"My black cocktail dress. It was here yesterday and every day before that. ROASLIE, BELLA!" She screamed.

Edward, Emmett, Rosalie, and Bella were in the room seconds later. Edward and Emmett were still in funny mode, Rosalie was looked irritated, and Bella curious and a little hurt.

"Alice, sweetie, "I started hesitantly, I can't keep a secret from Alice. "It's not their fault. Umm, come here baby. We need to talk."

I turned back to the four of them. "You guys can go."

Edward and Bella left the room with Rosalie, but Emmett was still there. "Go EMMETT!" I yelled at him.

"Fine." He left the room laughing again.

"Jasper! Will you please explain this to me?!" Alice yelled.

I walked over the bed and scooted back to lean against the pillows. Alice came over and I gestured for her to sit in my lap.

"No! Not until you tell me what's going on?!"

"Alice, please." I sent a few emotions to her and she eventually came to sit on my lap. She settled her head on my shoulder but she was still angry.

"Okay, well you know Mike."

"Mike? What does Mike have to do with anything?"

"In due time. K, well Mike came over the house today while you guys were gone hunting. And well I didn't notice him here so he came into the room and went into your closet."

She gasped and got very angry once more. I stroked her hair to sooth her.

"Well, he stole your cocktail dress and he sort of ran off with it."

"So, Mike just came to the house and took the dress and left?"

"Umm, yes?"
