I was going to Edward's house today, like I usually did at the weekends now. I spent all my free time with him. I stumbled out of bed, tripping on some books I left on the floor. I felt two cold arms wrap around me, and I managed to avoid hitting the ground. I felt my cheeks burn.
"Thanks." I said sheepishly. Edward pulled me round to face him.
"It's ok Bella. I'm used to it now." he chuckled, putting his hands on my face. I smiled, feeling my cheeks cool down.
"Thanks again. Could I just go and get ready?" I asked.
"Sure, I'll go back home and get ready. I'll bring the car." he replied, before kissing me on the cheek and ducking out of the window. I chose a pair of skinny jeans, and a red blouse. Alice had bought these for me on one of her many shopping trips. I hated it when she bought me things, but she ignored me like always. I went into the bathroom and got changed. My face was relatively clear of spots, I only had a few imperfections here and there. I was satisfied, so I splashed my face with cold water, helping to wake me up a bit. I grabbed my toothbrush, and squirted some toothpaste onto the brush. I let the minty smell travel up my nose. I finished brushing, and put the brush back in the pot. I looked at my hair, a mess as usual. I yanked the brush through it, and managed to tame it a bit. I wouldn't put it up, besides, I'd accidently dropped my last hair band into the toilet. There I go again, Bella the klutz. I didn't fancy using it again. I don't think anyone would. Charlie had left for work, so I went downstairs and fetched myself a bowl of cereal, chewing the flakes slowly. I washed the bowl and spoon. As I put the spoon back in the drawer, I heard the familiar smooth hum of Edward's Volvo. I heard a quiet knock. I checked myself in the mirror, scanning over my appearance. I looked tired, but it would have to do for today. I opened the door, and saw my fiancé standing there, smiling my favourite crooked smile. My eyes traced over his perfect face, I never got over the beauty of it. He stepped forward, snapping me out of my trance.
"Hello again, Bella."
"Hi." I mumbled. He took my face in his hands, and kissed my lips lightly. I just about managed to refrain from kissing his face off. I knew how he had to control himself. His breath made me dizzy, yet again. He took my hand in his, and we walked to the awaiting Volvo. I jumped in the seat and did my belt, just as Edward was already driving down the road.
"I just need to warn you, Emmett is in the mood for pranking today. He's been reciting the Chinese national anthem backwards to try and hide his thoughts. To be honest, I'm surprised he even knows Chinese, let alone the national anthem!" Edward scoffed.
"Ah. As long as he doesn't prank me, then I'm fine!" I replied.
"Well, er, there's a problem there. Emmett was thinking about pranking you. I don't know what he'll do to you though, but I'll protect you no matter what."
"Edward, I don't need protecting from Emmett. He's literally a big brother to me."
"Exactly, he thinks it's acceptable to prank you as you are technically his little sister!" Edward replied.
"Yes, but I'm sure they won't be too bad." I laughed, quietening down when I saw Edward's face had gone hard.
"You have no idea." Edward said harshly.
"Oh come on Edward. It'll be funny seeing what he does to the others. Oh, and maybe we could think of a prank for him. All of us could!" I chirped. This softened him up a bit. We were almost there, the house came into sight. We parked, and Edward was opening my door before I'd gotten to my seatbelt. I stepped out onto the pavement, catching a glimpse of the Cullen's many cars lined up in the garage. My stomach was twisting, I was a bit worried about facing the wrath of Emmett Cullen. We walked to the door, and Esme opened it with a calming smile on her face.
"Hello Bella. Welcome back." she cheered. She skipped forward and gave me a motherly hug. We strode inside, me cowering into Edward's chest, preparing for something to happen, and it did. Emmett jumped out from the kitchen, a massive grin on his face.
"RAWR!" he screeched. I jumped back in surprise. Emmett fell on the floor and started laughing his head off. Edward stepped in front of me and growled.
"Come on Edward. It was funny! I just wanted to see her face." Emmett guffawed.
"Alice, why didn't you tell me this was going to happen?" Edward snarled.
"Whoa. Calm down Edward! I thought it would be funny. Bella, do you forgive me?" Alice giggled. I glared at her. Alice's face fell.
"I will only forgive you if you promise not to buy me any clothes for a month!" I cackled.
"No! Bella, you can't do that to me!" Alice cried.
"I just did." I laughed. Alice fell to the floor, taking the place of Emmett. She sobbed, no tears falling from her eyes. Jasper glared at me as he consoled his wife. It pulled at my heartstrings.
"Oh fine. A WEEK then Alice." I said, defeated. Alice jumped up and hugged me.
"Thank you Bella! I won't do that ever again!" she giggled. I hugged her back. When she was finished, she ran upstairs. I looked at Emmett, who had a smile that was so evil, I wanted to run away and scream.
