Chapter Eight

EPOV

Last night at the bar was amazing. I can't believe that was the first time we were out in public together. It was definitely a long time coming. Her brother, Jasper, seemed like a really nice guy. Although I'm not sure he appreciated how friendly Bella and I got out on the dance floor. I knew at the time we shouldn't have taken it that far being that we were in public, but I couldn't stop myself. I seem to lose myself around her. All inhibitions go out the window. The only thing I can think about is how badly I need her.

She wanted me to take her against the wall in the alley, and fuck did I want to, but I couldn't. I knew I would regret doing that. Our first time shouldn't be like that. I don't want to sound like a sap but I want to be able to make to love to her and not just fuck her. I've had plenty of fucks with my past girlfriends. I never made love to any of them. Of course, I never actually loved them. I've never loved anyone…never made love to anyone. I know Bella is special. I may have not known her for very long, but I already feel stronger for her than my ex-girlfriends combined. Not that that is really saying much. I didn't feel strongly for any of them.

Everything has gone so fast for us. I mean, we literally attacked each other a few minutes after meeting. I know to most people it would seem like we are moving too fast and maybe we are, but all I know is that it feels right. I feel like I've known her my whole life or something. It's a strange feeling. Butterflies in my stomach when she's near, the fiery trails of warmth her touch leaves on my skin, the undeniable pull I feel towards her… it's all unlike anything I have ever felt. And I can't get enough. It's addictive. Her scent, her taste…everything about her draws me in. I feel like a drug addict waiting for his next hit.

And fuck if I don't need another hit…

I wanted to kiss Rosalie last night when she suggested a pool party. I have had the pleasure of seeing Bella in a bikini, and it's definitely something I'd like see again…and again and again.

I hope she's able to bring Emmaline with her. That poor little girl needs to get out of that place, and I would really like everyone to meet her.

I just arrived at Rose and Emmett's place about five minutes ago. Emmett's outside grilling some hamburgers and hotdogs. Rose is inside making margarita's for the girls and lemonade incase Emmaline comes. Alice is in the bathroom checking her makeup and hair for the umpteenth time. She and Jasper really hit it off last night and I know she's excited about him coming over today.

I can't really make too much fun of her though. I changed what I was wearing about four times. I finally decided on wearing a simple black Billabong t-shirt and black and blue plaid boardshorts. I actually made Alice change her bikini when I picked her up today. Her bikini was way too tiny and I did not want her wearing that around Jasper…or anyone for that matter. She settled on a…what did she call it again??? Oh yea… A seashell bandeau top in a light bluish greenish color. It was still on the small side, but it actually covered up more than any of her others and she's wearing a white cover-up thing over it. I guess it's better than Rose in her red and blue bikini…not that it's more revealing, it's just that…well, let's just say Rose has more assets to show off which makes pretty much everything she wears seem more revealing.

I walk over to the fridge to grab a beer when I hear the door bell ring.

"I'll get it," Alice sings happily.

She skips merrily down the hallway towards the door. I hear it open and the voice of my beautiful angel fills my ears.

"Hi Alice!" Bella says cheerfully.

I quickly put my beer down and make my way down the hall towards the front door.

"Hey Bella! I'm so glad you could make it. Where's Emmaline? Could she not make it?" Alice asks.

I feel instantly saddened at the thought that Emmaline can't be here today. I really wanted to introduce her to everyone, and let her have some fun outside of that prison.

I watch Bella walk through the front door. She starts to say something to Alice until she spots me. She blushes a little, probably at how intently I'm staring at her, and she quickly makes her way towards me.

I wrap my arms around her small frame and bend down to greet her with a proper kiss.

God, it feels so good to hold her.

"Hi baby," I whisper against her mouth.

She sighs and lets out a little giggle. "Hi," she says.

"I'm sorry Emmaline couldn't be here today. I really wanted to see her," I tell her.

"Oh well actually --" she starts but gets interrupted.

"Hey guys!" Jasper greets enthusiastically.

I look up at him and notice an adorable little browned haired angel in his arms. She's dressed in a white top with white shorts that have blue and yellow flowers all over it over a matching swimsuit, but the cutest part are the big blue sunglasses on her face. I have to stop myself from rushing over to her and scooping her up in my arms.

She has her thumb in her mouth with her index finger wrapped up around her nose.

I walk calmly over to her to say hello.

"Hi Emmaline. I'm so glad you're here," I say gently. She smiles around her thumb and uses the four unoccupied fingers to give me a little wave. She blushes a little and then tucks her head into Jaspers neck. He hugs her gently and rubs her back. I can't help but feel jealous at how comfortable she is with him. I want to be the one she holds on to when she's nervous or scared. I can only hope that in time she'll grow to be as familiar with me as she is with her uncle.

Jasper pulls her sunglasses off and sets her on the floor.

"Come on, baby, let's get you something to drink," Bella suggest as she takes her little hand.

Emmaline starts walking with Bella, but turns her little head back towards me. She pulls her thumb out of her mouth and says, "Coming, Ederd?"

"Ye-yea, of course," I stammer out in surprise, grinning like a fool.

Bella looks up at me with a grin matching my own, but our moment is soon broken as Alice comes whipping passed us to get to Emmaline.

"Hi Emmaline! It's great to finally meet you! I'm Alice, Ederd's little sister. We're gonna be great friends. I can't wait to take you shopping," Alice squeals and bends down to give her a big hug.

Poor little Emmaline looks shocked and confused, but then a slow smile takes over her face.

"Are you my fwary godmother? You look like a fwary," she says excitedly.

Alice lets out a loud laugh and nods her head enthusiastically. "I think that's an excellent way to describe me," she says, then stands back up and walks over to me. "She's going to have you wrapped around her adorable little finger," she whispers to me.

"I'm pretty sure she already does," I mumble.

"They're going to be so good for you. You're a very lucky man, Edward," she says seriously.

I nod my head in agreement and make my way back towards the kitchen.

Rosalie has just finished making a special drink for Emmaline. It's pink lemonade with a crazy straw and a yellow umbrella.

"Hi sweetheart. My name's Rosalie, but you can call me Rose or Rosie if that's easier," she says as she places the drink down in front of her.

Emmaline looks up at her and whispers a thank you before grabbing at the drink and almost knocking it over in the process. Bella grabs and steadies it before it falls and holds it still while Emmaline drinks.

Rose looks at her with longing. She's always wanted to be a mother. She and Emmett want to wait until after they're married before they start, but from the look in her eyes, she may not wait that long. Emmett's always wanted a big family too. I always used to think he was joking when he talked about having a litter of kids with Rose...but I guess he wasn't. I know they want at least five. They even made a deal that Rose can pick out the girl names and Emmett can pick the boy names. I think Rose is convinced they're going to have all girls. For Emmett's sake, I hope they're not. I can't even imagine five little Rosalie's running around. Scary.

"Mmmmm. Dis is yummy," Emmaline says as she smacks her lips together.

"Oh good, sweetie. I'm so glad you like it," Rose elates.

Emmaline looks down at her near empty glass, then back up to Rose. She gives Rose her best 'pout face' and quietly asks, "More pwease," as she slides the glass towards Rose.

Oh my god...if she ever uses that face on me, I'm toast. She's going to get away with everything.

Rose looks like she's about to run to fetch her the pitcher of lemonade, but then stops herself. "Umm, I think that's up to your mommy," she says directed mostly towards Bella. Bella just looks amused with the situation.

"Normally, I try not to give in to her which she pulls her puppy dog face on me, but today is a special today, so of course you can have more sweetie," she says adoringly to her.

Emmaline bounces with excitement.

"Would it be alright if I took her out to the pool now? I bought this really neat pool floaty for her, and I can't wait to see her face when she sees it. And don't worry, I also bought those little arm floaty things too for her to wear and I won't take my eyes off her the whole time," Alice asks Bella excitingly.

Bella laughs at her enthusiasm. "Sure Alice, it's cool," she says and then turns to her still bouncy daughter. "Baby, do you want to go out to the pool now and play on the pool toy Alice bought you?" She asks her.

"Toys?! OK!" she squeals and tries to hop off the barstool, but just like her mother, her foot gets caught on one of the bars and she almost falls head first onto the floor. Instinctively, I lunge towards her just in time to catch her before she falls.

"Ahhhh!" I hear a frightened scream, though I can't tell if it came from Emmaline or her mother.

"Shhh princess...I got you. It's ok," I whisper to her and soothingly rub her back as a I hear her release a few sniffles.

"I ohmost fwell," she sniffled again.

"I know angel, but you're ok now," I ease her. "Now I think Alice is itching to take you into the pool. You want to go with Alice now? I'm sure your Uncle Jasper will even hold your lemonade," I tell her.

"Ok," she smiles at me as one last tear falls down her rosy little cheek. I wipe it away with my thumb and give her a little hug.

"Ok doodlebug, go have fun," I tell her and she lets out a loud giggle. I let her go and stand back up. As she runs past Bella she continues to laugh saying "Ederd say Doodlebug."

"Well that's because you are a doodlebug," she laughed back at her.

Alice, Jasper, Emmaline, and Rose all raced out the back door to the pool, leaving Bella and I to ourselves.

Before I know it, Bella pounces on me. She wraps her legs around my waist and her arms around my neck and her soft lips mold to mine.

I moan loudly upon impact and push us up against the fridge. Her mouth opens up to mine begging me to enter. I slowly massage her tongue with my own. Eventually we break apart for air and I move my mouth down her neck, placing wet kisses everywhere I can.

"You're so good with her, Edward. I'm amazed...you're...mmmm... amazing. Thank you for being so wonderful, and...uhhh... thank you for catching her. She...mmmm....unfortunately inherited my clumsiness," she stammers out as I lavish her neck and knead her ass with my hands.

"It's my pleasure, baby. I'm really taken with her. She's a wonderful little girl," I tell her honestly as I pepper kisses back up her neck and cheek back towards her mouth.

"Thank you. She really is. I'm very lucky to have her," she says.

"I think she's lucky to have you too, and I'm sure as hell lucky to have both of you," I tell her.

"You honestly feel that way?" she asks.

"Yes, baby. I wouldn't lie to you. I know you think I should be running for the hills just because you have a kid, but that's not the case. I'll admit that at first, I was pretty freaked out. I've never really been around children, and I didn't know how to react. Once I got my head around it, I realized how awesome it was. She's just like you. It's like I get two of you. I also didn't realize how attached I would get to her so soon. I know I haven't spent much time with her, but I've really enjoyed the time that I have had with her. It feels very comfortable...the three of us. So please stop doubting my intentions or feelings or whatever. I'm here for as long as the two of you will have me," I explain.

"I swear to god, the more you open your mouth to talk, the more I fall in love with you," she laughed and then got deadly quiet. Her eyes shot wide in shock. "I---uhhh----that just sorta came out. I know it's way too soon for those kind of feelings, so you don't have to worry about saying anything back. Let's just pretend that I didn't say anything and then we can get back to -" she starts rambling but I cut her off by putting my hand over her mouth.

"I love you too," I tell her. Wow...seriously Edward? Did we really just use the L-word. We've only known each other for what? A couple of weeks?

"You...you do?" she stutters, her eyes wide and soft.

Do I mean it? I said it. It definitely didn't feel wrong saying it. It felt pretty damn right actually. She IS amazing...and beautiful, and sweet, and loving, and funny, and adorable, and sexy, and...ok point made, Edward. You love her. I love her. Holy shit.

"Yes," I state confidently, "I really do." And just as I lean it to kiss her, she starts sobbing uncontrollably.

"Oh my god *sniffle* I can't believe you *snort* really love me too," she cries into my shoulder.

Hmm...ok. Not exactly what I was expecting.

I don't know what to do with her sudden burst of emotion, so I gently pat her back to calm her down.

"I'm sorry I'm crying. It's just that...I never thought...you're just so perfect...and we haven't known each other for very long...and I thought I was being crazy for falling for you so fast...and I'm on my period, so I'm sort of all over the place right now," she breathes in heavy breaths.

"Ok, baby. First of all, TMI," I tell her gently. "And second, you're not crazy. We're not crazy. I think when you meet the right person, you just know. I mean, I feel like I knew the moment I first saw you. We were so drawn to each other. Does that make sense?" I ask her.

Her crying fades to just a few sniffles. She looks up at me and nods slowly but surely.

"Ok then. You love me and I love you and we aren't crazy. Sound good?" I ask again.

"Yes," she giggles softly. "It sounds very, very good," she smiles.

"I've never said that to anyone before. It's kind of surreal, and sort of...liberating. I mean, I really fucking love you, Bella," I state in awe of my newfound emotion.

"I really fucking love you, honey bear," she giggles at the horrible pet name she just gave me.

I just stare at her and shake my head slowly.

"Yeah...just trying it out. That one's a no-go, huh?" she asks.

"That one's a hell no," I laugh.

"What about pookie, or maybe hotcakes, ohhh or what about love muffin?" she asks looking surprisingly serious.

"Baby, I say this with love, but you are terrible at giving pet names," I laugh harder.

She sighs a little, "Yeah, you're right. Those weren't very good."

"Come on, baby. Let's go outside with everyone else. They're probably wondering what's taking us so long," I say.

She laughs a little, "Judging by the little show we put on for them last night at the bar, they probably think we found a room to have sex in or something."

"Nah, I'm sure if they were thinking that, Jasper would be in here hunting me down to castrate me," I laugh remembering the look I was getting from him last night.

"He's not that bad. You can't really blame him, considering what he witnessed last night. And don't think I didn't notice the stink-eye you were giving him just for holding Alice's hand," she teases me.

"He wasn't just holding her hand. He was giving her 'the look'," I tell her.

"What's 'the look'?" she asks.

"You know, 'the look'. The one that says 'I can't really pay attention to what you're saying, because all I can think about is what you look like naked and hopefully we'll get to be naked together sometime in the near future. That look," I tell her.

"Wow. That one look says all that," she continues to tease. "Can I see this look?" she asks.

I sigh and give her my best version of 'the look'.

Her face starts to crack, and before I know it, she's laughing her ass off. "Oh my god! That is so not 'the look'. You looked constipated!" she chokes out.

"Whatever. That was definitely 'the look'. I'm gonna pull that puppy out on you when you least expect it, and then we'll see who's laughing," I warn her.

"Ok, Studdly Doowright. You do that," she says condescendingly.

"Bella. Please, for the love of God, stop with the pet names. They're getting worse," I laugh.

"Fine, but I'm gonna pull that puppy out when you least expect it, and then we'll see who's laughing," she mocks in her best "Edward voice."

"Ok, that's it," I say as I pick her up and throw her over my shoulder.

"Hey! Put me down! What are you doing?" she screams at me.

I ignore her yelps and run out the back door towards the pool.

"Oh no you don't. You put me down Edward Cullen! I still have my cover-up and shoes on. PUT ME DOWN," she yells louder.

"Nope," I say simply and drop her in the pool.

I start laughing uncontrollably when I see her face. She looks like a drowned, but very angry kitty cat.

"See. That's what you get when you mess with -" I start but suddenly feel my knees give in, and I fall over into the pool.

I rise up through the water bewildered as to why I fell, but then look up to see a sassy little girl with scolding look on her face.

"Wisten to my momma," Emmaline says sternly, and Bella and everyone else let out a cackling laugh.

"Dude! You just got owned by a two-year-old," Emmett howls.

"Hey. I ohmost twee," she says holding up three little fingers.

I sneak up to her as she's facing Emmett. I grab her in a strong hug and bring her into the pool with us.

She lets out a scream followed by an adorable giggle. "Ederd," she says giggling.

"Yes, doodlebug?" I coo.

"You funny," she giggles and looks up at me with her big, brown, Bella eyes. She reaches up and wraps her little arms around my neck and gives me a hug. I hug her back with all my might while trying not to crush her with my enthusiasm. Bella looks like she's on the edge of tears, and to be honest, I feel like I am too. This precious little girl is letting me in so easily. I was so afraid she wouldn't warm up to me, but that definitely doesn't appear to be a concern now.

"You're funny too, doodlebug. Do you like the toy Alice bought you?" I ask her.

"Yes! I wuv it!" she says earnestly. I have to admit, it is pretty cool. It's a blue inner tube with a blue shade that comes up over it, and there are toys on the front to play with.

I wade over to it and set her down in it. I can see it even has a drink holder for her lemonade. She reaches for it, so I gently hand it over to her and put her sunglasses back on her as well.

I swim back over to Bella and pull her into a hug.

"What are you looking so smug about?" she teases me.

"She thinks I'm funny," I say with a big grin.

"Yeah well, she IS only two-and-a-half, Edward," she laughs.

I pinch her sides a little and she lets out a squeal just as I hear everyone jump into the pool. They start splashing and playing around, so I wade Bella and I into the corner.

"She really likes you, Edward. You have no idea how happy I am to see her so comfortable around you, especially since she's not used to new people," she tells me.

"I'm just as happy as you are, baby. I was terrified that she wouldn't like me, and that I wouldn't know how to act around her. But apparently, it just comes naturally. Everything with you seems so natural. I love you, Bella," I tell her sweetly and softly kiss her lips.

"I love you, too," she sighs into my mouth. She kisses me slowly, but pulls away before it can get heated.

"Here baby, let me take your top. I'll put in the wash for you," I tell her.

"Ok. Thanks," she says as she pulls her black top up and over her head, leaving her in an adorable little bikini. It sort of a dark peachish color and it's sexy without being too revealing. I reach up and take my black Billabong t-shirt off, leaving me in just my black and blue plaid boardshorts. I lift myself out of the pool and stand-up. I look down at Bella and notice she's ogling me and biting that fucking lip. Fuck...and now I have a boner. I hurry into the house and put our stuff into the washing machine. I give myself a few minutes before returning so my Bella-boner can calm himself. How is it possible that she gives me a hard-on from just biting her lip?!

I put our stuff in the wash and turn it on. I hear footsteps approaching and suddenly feel soft hands reach around from behind me, slowly rubbing my stomach.

"You look so good soaking wet," her sexy voice purrs. I groan at her voice and then a little louder as I feel her place wet hot kisses all over back. She bends down and licks a straight line up my spine ending with a bite in the crook of my neck. It was fucking erotic.

"Baby…" I groan and feel her hands slip down the front of my boardshorts and massage my aching erection.

"I noticed you were having a bit of a problem here," she gives me a little squeeze, "and I just wanted to help," she adds.

A simple "fuck" is the only thing I can manage to get out.

"Turn around," she says with authority.

I like bossy Bella.

I quickly turn around and put my hands on her hips.

"You're so fu-," I start to say.

"Shut up," she tells me and gives me a searing kiss. "I don't want you to speak. We have lots of friends here just outside and I don't want them to know what we're doing," she says and drops to the ground slowly. She undoes my soaking wet shorts and they drop to the floor with a 'thud.'

"God, your dick looks even better wet," she groans and takes one long lick up my shaft and sensually sucks on my tip.

"Unnnggg!" I moan loudly and suddenly feel a harsh bite to my hip. "Ahhh fuck, Bella," I yell.

"I told you to be quiet," she reiterates. "And if you're a good boy, I'll let you fuck my mouth," She says seductively.

I really, really like bossy Bella.

"Holy –," I start.

"Are you gonna be a good boy for me?" she interrupts.

I nod furiously. She smiles at me and gives me a wink. She takes my hands and brings them to the back of her head and closes my fists into her hair.

Ok wait, she's just going to let me fuck her mouth. What if I hurt her? What if I thrust too deeply?

She senses my hesitation and her face soften a little.

"I trust you," she says and quickly takes my cock deep into her mouth.

I hesitate for another couple of seconds and start to slowly thrust in and out. I think Bella can tell I'm holding off quite a bit, so she starts to help me by sucking harder and hums loudly around my cock.

"unngg," I moan as quietly as I can manage and thrust a little harder and deeper. Bella's soft little hands come up to my ass. Softly rubbing my ass cheeks at first, then a little harder. She grabs big handfuls and starts kneading and massaging.

Holy shit that feels good.

Her tongue starts pushing harder along my thick vein and I buck harshly, forcing myself all the way down her throat. She quickly relaxes and allows my forceful entry. The sensation of her hot little mouth and the sucking and grabbing and....of fuck…the humming…it's overwhelming. I can already feel my balls start to tighten. Bella can obviously feel my dick twitching in her sweet mouth so she brings her hand to my balls to help coax my orgasm out of me.

I feel my grip in her hair tighten, so I can hold her perfectly still as I fuck her harder. I look down at my sweet girl and she fucking winks at me. Fucking hot perfect woman.

"Oh yes, baby. Just like that. Take my dick. Suck me harder," I internalize.

I move one of my heads from the back of her head and clumsily try to push her bathing suit straps off her shoulders. She quickly understands what I'm doing, and pulls her top all the way down to her torso. Bella starts to grab her breasts and tweak her nipples, but I suddenly feel the need to take to over. I push her hand out of the way and grab her tit, massaging and squeezing. I can't help but pull harshly on her nipple. I can feel her take a sudden intake of breath around my dick which in turn sucks me further back her throat.

I can't take it anymore. I position the hand that was around her breast back up to her hair and start fucking her wildly. In and out, harder and faster. Her teeth scrap the underside of my dick just a little and I fucking lose it.

My panting is out of control. I can barely catch a breath.

"Bella…" I strain as quietly as possible.

I push her face into my crotch and hold her still as I empty myself down her throat.

My orgasm starts to fade after a few more twitches and my hands loosen their hold and fall to my sides limply.

Bella slowly takes me out of her mouth and cleans me with her mouth, sucking the rest of my cum off me. When she's finished, she brings my shorts back up and ties them back into place.

I notice she's out of breath herself and discreetly wipes her mouth clean.

I pull her to me and tight embrace. I don't even care if she just swallowed a mouthful of my cum. I need to kiss her.

I bring my mouth to hers in a heated kiss. "I love you," I breathe against her mouth.

"Back at you, sweet cheeks," she smiles adorably.

"You're really not going to give up finding me a pet name are you?" I ask sweetly.

"Nope," she says. "I'll come up with a good one eventually," she assures. "I actually kind of like sweet cheeks. It suits you," she adds and grabs my ass again.

"Really?" I tease.

"Oh yes. You have the sweetest ass I've ever seen. I've never wanted to bite something so badly in my life," she whispers in my ear.

"Stop, baby. We have to go outside now, and I really don't want to walk out there sporting an erection," I tell her.

"Sorry," she giggles.

"Oh, I'm sure you are," I roll my eyes playfully and give her a soft kiss.

We take a minute to hide any evidence of what just happened before walking back outside.

Emmett is finishing up the hamburgers and hotdogs, while Jasper and Alice lounge on the chairs together, talking amicably about something. Rose is in the pool with Emmaline pushing her around in her toy and making sound effects. I've never seen Rose this happy before. She actually doesn't seem as scary as she normally does. I notice Emmett looking at them every few seconds with a big grin on his face. Oh yea, they definitely won't be waiting too much longer.

"Momma! Wook at me!" Emmaline giggles as she continues to be pushed around the pool.

"Wow, baby. You're going to fast!" Bella exclaims.

"Faster RoRo, faster!" She tells Rose.

RoRo?

"Ok hold on tight, little one," Rose tells her and takes off at full speed.

Emmaline starts screaming and laughing. "Yay!!" she yells.

"Wow…I've never seen her have so much fun," Bella says with a soft smile.

"Yeah, Rose loves kids. She and Emmett have always wanted a house full of them," I tell her.

"She'll be a great mom, I'm sure. This just makes me realize how awful it's been for her to be stuck in that house. She needs get out more. I'm so glad Jasper's home now. I'll try to get her out of the house as often as I can," she says.

"Yeah, and maybe he can convince your parents to start taking lessons at the gym instead of the house. He should pull some reverse psychology on them or something," I laugh.

"He's actually really good at that. He can make them agree with just about whatever he says," she tells me.

"Awesome. I can't wait to have some more alone time with you," I whisper softly.

"Tell me about it. Not that this sneaking around thing isn't fun, but I'm getting tired of wondering if someone is going to catch us. I want to have some time alone. Just you and me…preferably naked," she grins mischievously.

"I think we'll able to work that out. If Jasper can convince your parents to let you come to the gym, then maybe we could sneak away to my apartment or something," I suggest.

"Are you trying to get out of your trainer duties, Mr. Cullen?" she teases.

"Of course not, Ms. Swan. I fully plan on giving you a workout," I wink.

"I bet you do," she murmurs and her face turns a little pink.

Oh how I love that blush…

"Come on guys! Food's ready!" Emmett hollers.

We all sit around the table and load our plates full of food. Bella puts on a hot dog on Emmaline's plate and cuts it up into smaller pieces. She quickly starts scarfing it down like it's going to disappear any moment.

"Wow there, Doodlebug. Try to slow down a bit. You don't want to choke, sweatheart," I tell her and gently pat her back.

She looks up at me with a mouth full of food and smiles.

"She's never had grilled hot dogs before," Bella says. "Or chips, or baked beans, or potato salad," she adds.

"Seriously?" I ask.

"Yeah. Barbeques aren't really my family's thing," she says sarcastically. "You have no idea how good this looks to me right now," she moans a little.

"Well I've made plenty little B, so eat up," Emmett encourages.

"Oh I will, don't worry," she assures.

She piles her plate with two hamburgers, a hot dog, and a few spoonfuls of beans and potato salad. That a girl.

"Hey Jasper?" I look over to him.

"Yeah?" he asks.

"Bella and I were wondering if you could maybe talk to your parents and convince them to let her take her training sessions at the gym instead of at the house," I ask him. "Bella says you're really good at the convincing them to do things," I add.

"Oh sure, no problem. Anything I can do to help, really," he says. "I'll even stay with Emmaline while she's there. Our parent's really aren't that hard to convince. Charlie can be difficult at times, but he's hardly ever there. And well, Renee's not usually in the best state of mind if you know what I mean. It shouldn't take too much convincing. I actually need to find an apartment soon. Hopefully when I do, Emmaline can stay over with me sometimes," he says.

"Yay! I wanna go to Uncle Jazzy's house!" she squeals in delight.

"You'll get to go, baby. I promise," Bella tells her. "That is so nice of you, Jasper, really. I can't tell you how much that means to me," She says.

"Yeah man, I really appreciate it too," I add.

"Seriously guys, don't worry about it. It shouldn't take too long for me to find a place either. This little lady next to me is positive she knows the right place for me. She's taking me over there tomorrow," he says.

"So you guys getting along well then?" I tease.

"Uhh well….yea… I mean…she's great," Jasper stammers trying to think of the right answer.

Alice puts her hand over his and smiles at him.

"We're getting along perfectly. He's wonderful," she looks longingly at him.

"You're pretty wonderful too, Ali," he smiles shyly back at her.

"Are you guys gonna start sneaking of now, too?" Emmett asks with a laugh.

Bella and I look at each other with blush staining both our cheeks.

I guess we aren't as sneaky as we thought.

A/N:

Wow…it's been too long hasn't it? Sorry everyone. I no longer have internet at my apartment, thanks to the brilliant people at AT&T, so I haven't been able to post this. I'm at my parent's house right now for the Easter holiday. Anyway, I hope you guys liked it.

A picture of the pool and Rose and Emmett's house is on photobucket.

Pictures of their clothes are on my profile.

REVIEW PLEASE! It makes my day…
