It's my first Twilight fan fic. I hope you like it. I don't any of the characters. Miss Stephenie Meyer has that pleasure.

P.S. An interveiw in GQ magazine said that Robert Pattinson reads Twilight fan fics :)

Chapter One

Edward walked down the hallway and stopped in front of Carlisle's study. He knocked on the door.

"The door's open," Carlisle said.

Edward opened the door and poked his head in. "You wanted to talk to me?" he asked.

"Yes," Carlisle replied. "Come in and sit down."

Edward came in, shutting the door behind him. He then took a seat across the desk from Carlisle. "Have you considered my request?" he asked.

"I have. I've also discussed this with the others. I didn't tell them everything, but they managed to figure it all out on their own."

Edward sighed. "Great."

"Edward, are you absolutely sure you want to go through with this?"

"Yes. I genuinely want to do this. For myself. I need the assurance that I am capable of doing it."

Carlisle nodded. "Well then, you'll be happy to know that the house will be all yours tomorrow night."

Edward smiled. "Thank you."

"But, I want you to be responsible and make all necessary preparations."

Edward nodded. "I will." He stood and left the study.

He went downstairs to the living room. He found Emmett, Rosalie, Jasper and Alice sitting around the coffee table, playing cards.

"I told you so," Alice sing-songed, her eyes still focused on her cards.

"I never doubted you," Edward said and he sat down next to her.

Rosalie threw her cards down on the table and stood. She started to walk out of the room, with everyone watching her. Suddenly, she stopped and quickly turned around.

"Get out of my head!" she yelled at Edward.

Edward was instantly on his feet. "I'm just trying to figure out why you're so angry."

"Because the rest of us outnumbered her," Alice explained.

"And not one of you is the least bit concerned that this could end disastrously?" Rosalie asked. "Not just for Edward and Bella, but for all of us."

"And it didn't cross your mind that I might have thought about all of that?" Edward asked.

Rosalie crossed the room and stood in front of Edward, looking him straight in the eyes. "I'm only going to say this once. If you do go through with this, you had better make damn sure you are well prepared."

Alice put her cards down and came to stand by Edward. "Rose, he already knows what he needs to do."

"Fine," Rosalie said. She turned around and left the room.

"Rosalie!" Emmett called after her.

"Let her go," Jasper said. "She'll calm down in a little while."

"In the meantime," Alice said. "I think we need to take Edward shopping."

"No." Emmett put his cards down and came over to them. "We need to take Edward hunting."

"We need to do both," Edward corrected them. "Shopping now, hunting tomorrow morning."

"Shopping now?" Alice asked. "But aren't you picking Bella up from work later?"

Edward glanced at the clock on the wall. "We've got two hours. We'd better hurry."

"Excuse me," Jasper said. "Does this mean that we're done playing cards?"

"Yeah," Emmett said. "You win."

Jasper looked at his cards and shrugged. Then he started picking up the coins they had been betting with. Edward and Alice looked at each other and started to laugh.

"What's so funny?" Emmett asked, missing out on their private joke.

"You really shouldn't have done that," Alice said.

"You had two pair," Edward said. "And you just let Jasper win with an ace, three, seven, ten, queen."

Emmett swore. Jasper, Alice and Edward just laughed.
