Soo, I haven't had that disclaimer thing..
THANK YOU FOR THE REVIEWS! You guys all rock. (:
I do not own Twilight. I begged for it for Christmas, but my parents thought it was a dumb request. Not cool.
Jacob walked me back to my table, joking around with me. He made me laugh, a lot. We finally reached my table. Alice raised her eyebrows at me as she took a sip of her water.
"Who's this?" She inquired.
"This is Jacob. I met him on my way back from the bathroom. I had a little 'incident.'" I mumbled the ending.
"Incident?" Jacob laughed, "More like fell on top of me!" He held his hand out for Alice for to shake. She took it politely.
"Well, Bella, I guess this is where I leave you," I realized this was true and felt a little disappointed. Jacob was so much fun to be around. "Can I have your number?"
I cheerfully nodded and we exchanged our numbers. "You better call me," I threatened.
He bowed at me, "Your wish is my command," I giggled and he left the restaurant.
I plopped down in my seat and picked up my chopsticks. I nodded Alice was staring at me. "What?"
"Well, I thought you were supposed to be going after Edward, not Jacob," she noted.
"Thank you, Captain Obvious. He's just a lot of fun to be around. Besides, after Mason sees what I wrote about him, I doubt he would want anything to do with me."
Alice mulled this information over and finally decided to give in. "Let's just enjoy our food! Besides, their show is going to start in five minutes!" She clapped her hands and impatiently waited.
"Now, ladies and gentlemen, it is our opportunity to perform for you guys!" The crowd let out a loud cheer as the barman made this announcement.
The waiters burst out into dance, imitating NSYNC. They were surprisingly good and I couldn't help laughing at them.
"Great place, Alice!" I shouted over the music. She nodded her head at me and continued to watch them. Suddenly, her phone started ringing. She pulled it out and glanced at her Caller ID.
"Oh, shit, it's James," she got up and walked out of the restaurant to answer her phone. I decided to give her a bit of privacy, but after ten minutes of waiting I had to go get her. The restaurant was about to close.
I stepped outside and looked around. I noticed her pacing the sidewalk, noticeably tense. She seemed to be arguing with James.
"James, no, I just wanted a night out with Bella!" I couldn't hear what he was saying but I noticed Alice rolling her eyes. "Duh, James, why would I hit on anybody else? I'm dating you, in case you forgot." He responded again. "I know you've been stressed out, but don't take it out on me." She paused, "I know you're sorry. I love you, night." She hit the End button and sighed.
I cleared my throat. "That was intense."
Alice laughed humorlessly. "You could say that. He's just stressed." She waved it off and linked arms with me. "Let's get you home. You have a hot date tomorrow!"
I let go of the James Incident for now, but decided to pursue the matter in the future. James needed to chill out, I didn't care how 'stressed' he was.
I woke up to someone jumping on my bed screaming, "Get up, get up, get up!" I lifted myself up with difficulty and saw a small pixie bouncing on my bed. I groaned.
"Alice, it's," I checked my alarm clock, "Seven in the morning. I was going to sleep in until eight thirty!" I complained.
"That was before, but now you have a date coming up!" She pulled the covers off my bed and yanked me up. "Get in the shower! Hurry, hurry, hurry!" She commanded me. Slightly fearing for my life, I complied and hit the showers.
Even with Alice rushing me, I knew I couldn't rush this shower. It felt so good on my tense shoulders and the water helped me wake up. When my fingers started to prune, I hopped out of the shower, grabbing a towel and walked back into my bedroom.
To my surprise, I noticed Rose was sitting on my bed. "Where's Alice?" I asked suspiciously, honestly afraid she would come out and start attacking me.
"She said she needed coffee," Rose rolled her eyes, "Like she needs it."
I laughed at that and walked over to my closet. "Are you here to help then?"
Rose got up and went through my closet. I took that as a 'yes.' I sat on my bed, waiting for Rose to emerge with an outfit. I was hoping it wouldn't be too over the top, it was just dinner at a café.
"Wait!" I held up a hand and Rose paused searching through my closet. "Dinner isn't until five. Why am I doing this at eight thirty in the morning?"
"These things take time, Bella," Rose stated, as if it was obvious. "Go blow dry your hair quick while I look for an outfit."
I grabbed underwear, a bra, a white cami and shorts. I changed into those quick and blow dried my hair. I finished my hair and stared at myself in the mirror for a bit. Was I really going to go through with this? I tilted my head in the mirror and pushed those thoughts out of my head. What was I talking about? Of course I was going through with this. I could finally get the career of my dreams.
"Bella?" Rose called, "I have an outfit!" She sang. Of course she did. I slouched into my bedroom, awaiting the new fashion trend I was about to be forced into.
She gave me a black skirt that was to my mid calf and had me tuck in a white and black polka dot tank top into it. I had to put a black and white buckle over it. Rose put two braids on the side of my head and pulled them back. She left the rest of my hair hanging. It gave me a classy look with a boho feel to it. Surprisingly, I liked it.
I twirled around for a bit, then turned to Rose. "Are you ready to go?" She smirked at me and walked out the door.
"I was born ready, darling."
I rolled my eyes. Of course she was.
"Man, are you ready yet?" Emmett said, clearly exasperated by my tardiness.
I gave him a look. "I just got out of the shower. Give me a break." Emmett rolled his eyes at me. Apparently wanting to smell good—or even clean—was wrong.
"Whatever. Can you please, please hurry up?" Emmett was being really weird about this whole dinner thing. There had to be a specific reason, but I wasn't really sure. I would find out though.
"I can hurry once you leave my room." I looked pointedly at my door. Emmett seemed to understand what I meant and got up.
"Let me know when you're ready." He mumbled. He shut the door behind him and I was finally left alone.
I pulled out a pair of my favorite blue jeans and put them on. After some deliberation I decided on a simple blue polo. I wanted to be casual, but still look good.
I walked out of my room and saw Emmett pouting on the couch. I hit him on the back of his head. "Let's go, Mr. Impatient."
Emmett leaped off the couch and bounded towards the door. "I'm driving!" He sang. Great. He was a worse driver than I was, and all I did was speed. I just hoped we would make it to the diner alive.
Contrary to my belief, we did make it to the cafe in one piece. Emmett hazardously parked his car and turned off the engine. We both sat there for awhile before looking at each other.
"Let's go." I said. "It's just a small dinner thing. Nothing to worry about, nothing." I convinced myself.
Emmett let out a booming laugh. "You're a freak!"
"Emmett! Shut up!" I hissed, looking around at who could have heard him. I guess the real question was who hadn't heard him?
"Too late, Superstar, we heard him loud and clear." A voice from behind me said. I prayed that it wasn't who I thought it was. I turned around and to my horror, it was Bella. She had heard him. I'm going to kill him.
I giggled at Edward's expression. If looks could kill, I thought. He did look pretty adorable, even when he was mad.
Wait. No, I did not just think that he was adorable. I was not getting involved with him, other than to get that scoop.
I looked over at Rose. She was staring, and possibly drooling, at Emmett. I leaned over and whispered in her ear, "Flies are going to get in your mouth if you don't shut it." She flushed and quickly closed her mouth.
I mentally patted myself on the back. I was keeping up with my end of Emmett's and I's deal, and hopefully he would keep up his end, especially if Rose really did end up liking him.
Edward looked up at me sheepishly. "Let's go inside," He held out his arm for me. I was shocked at his move. I didn't figure him to be the gentlemen type.
"All right, let's go to this 'nothing' dinner," I teased him. He flushed a bit and I laughed.
"Are you going to be laughing at me all night?" He asked, exasperated.
I put my finger to my chin and pretended to think about it. "Hmm. Depends how stupid you act."
He glared at me playfully and I smiled up innocently at him.
"I'm just kidding!" I put my hands up in surrender. "Let's go eat. I am starving." The four of us walked towards the café.
We walked in and I automatically noticed all the people checking out Edward. I smiled to myself. Maybe I could get a good story out of this.
"There's a table over there by the window," Emmett pointed out, "Let's grab it before someone else does."
We made our way over to the table and took a seat. We were just starting to get comfortable when a blonde walked over to the table. She swung her hips in an attempt to be sexy, which just looked ridiculous.
"Hey there, do I know you from somewhere?" She murmured at Edward. I noticed she leaned down a bit to expose her cleavage but Edward kept his eyes on the blonde's face.
"I don't think you do," He said politely before turning back to me.
"Why don't we change that then?" She fluttered her eyelashes at him, or attempted to. It looked like she had something in her eye.
Edward cleared his throat and glanced around the table. He caught my eye and silently pleaded with me.
I silently sat there and watched the blonde flirt with him a bit. After watching Edward squirm I decided to step in and help him out.
This is going to be interesting…
All righty. Chapter complete!
How about we go for.. fifty two reviews?
