"Guys! Can you take your non-romantic conversation somewhere else?"

Bella and Edward looked up from each others eyes and glared at me.

"What? Like we care what the last book you read was." I swiveled around on Jasper's lap for support. "Right, Jazz?"

"Right." he agreed.

"I second that." said Rose, lifting her lips from Emmett's long enough to actually speak. "So does Emmett. Hook up or get out."

"So, just because we aren't playing tonsil hockey with someone, that means we can't come on date night?" asked Edward angrily.

"Its called 'date night' for a reason!" I argued. "You have to have a date to come!"

"Bella is my date!" he protested.

"No! You're 'best friends' and despite all of our efforts, you've insisted on staying that way for the past 17 years!" God it was annoying. Two people totally perfect for each other and they refuse to realise it.

My two friends both groaned. "Not this speech again!" they moaned in unison.

I glared at them. "Look, if you aren't going to go out with your soul mate, who by the way is sitting right in front of you..."

"Alice, we're just.."

"Shut up. At least get with someone else then you can come on date night properly, without ruining the mood."

"All the guys at school are idiots."

"All the girls are sluts."

Then they glanced at each other and at the exact same time (They're always doing that) said, "Except for you, obviously."

I resisted the urge to punch them both in the face and scream "LOOK AT YOURSELVES!". Instead I took a deep breath. "Why not try singles dating sites then?"

They both fell about in hysterics.

"What?! They can be good!"

"We're not saddo forty year olds with nothing to do on a Friday night!" giggled Bella.

"Except ruin their friend's romance." I muttered. "Why not just try it? What could go wrong?"

"Um... How about we could be attacked by some evil Internet predator?" suggested Edward sarcastically.

"Will you get off our cases if we try it?" asked Bella quickly.

No. "Yes."

"Then we'll do it. Won't we Edward?" she looked at him and just like that she had him won over.


I grinned. "Brilliant. Sign up tomorrow. And don't think I won't check." With that I turned my attention back to the movie. Nice doing business with you, I added silently.


It didn't seem like such a good idea anymore. I stared at the sign up screen skeptically and picked up the phone.

"Hey. I'm just on the website." said my best friend when he picked up.

"Me too." I sighed. "I can't believe she talked us into this. What the hell is my screen name going to be?"

"You'll think of something. You always do." he assured me.

I smiled to myself. He was so lovely. If only he wasn't my friend. Now we could never ever go out. It would only ruin things.

"I hope so. Oh well. I'll talk to you later."

"Have fun. If all else fails, you can always resort to I_love_cookies."

I giggled and hung up.

I stared around my room for inspiration, swiveling around on my chair. Faster and faster. Then it hit me. Well, duh!

I started to type.


I hung up my phone. It was incredible how talking to Bella, even for thirty seconds, made me feel so light and happy.

If I didn't know better I'd say I was in love with her. But I did know better, it had always been like that.

I stared at the sign up screen wondering if Bella had thought of a screen name yet. I had no idea what mine was going to be.



What about....


What if it was....


So, for the screen names thing, I have a few ideas but nothing amazing. I'm definitely open to suggestions... hint hint!
