Disclaimer: I do not own Twilight. I do not own a pet shop either. Or a dog. I used to have two fish named Ron and Hermione but my mom killed them. I miss them.


Edward and I walked hand in hand through the mall. It was near closing time so there weren't many people. I had been needing a couple things but had waited until Alice was gone hunting so it wouldn't turn into a full on shopping extravaganza. I had already gotten the things I had come for so now we were just wandering around, going into stores that grabbed our interest. That was when I saw it.

The pet store.

"Ooh, Edward, look at the puppies!" I squealed. I quickly dragged him though the door. Suddenly, ever animal in the place was barking, growling, hissing, or making some other scary, defensive sound.

"Uh, Bella. I don't think they like me very much." Edward said, a tad nervously.

"Nonsense," I replied nonchalantly. "They just have to get to know you and overcome their instincts. Kind of like you and me."

"That's a bit different, Bella. They're not as smart and they're not in love with me."

"Not yet."

Edward rolled his eyes.

I pulled him to a cage housing a small Yorkshire Terrier puppy.

"He's so adorable!" I giggled as I stuck my hand in the cage to pet him. He ran to the very back corner and growled, glaring at Edward. "That's not very nice." I scolded.

I moved on to the next dog who did the same, along with the rest.

I decided to make my way to the pen holding five rabbits. The second Edward and I reached them, they all ran to the other side of the circular metal fence and cowered together.

"Bella, I really think we should leave." Edward said. "I'm distressing them."

"I've never seen them act like this before." The man at the counter said told us. He had been watching us closely since we had arrived and made the animals go crazy.

"Oh, really?" Edward said, faking surprise.

"Yeah, it's crazy!" The man said.

I just laughed nervously and pretended to look at a dog toy.

"Bella, I think I'm just going to step out. You can finish looking at the animals and I'll meet you outside."

He kissed me on the cheek before walking out of the store. Once he was out of the view of the animals, they gradually calmed down.

The man's eyes widened in wonder and disbelief.

I went back tot he puppies and this time they walked towards my hands. I petted their soft fir and sighed.

I wanted a puppy.

But they were too much work. I finished looking at them longingly before leaving the store, the dumbfounded man staring behind me.

I found Edward looking in the window of the jewelry shop across from the pet store and wrapped my arms around his waist, kissing his jaw.

"Those animals don't realize what they're missing out on." I murmured.

"What a shame." Edward sighed. "I considered leaving you for that yorkie."

I slapped him in the arm, only resulting in a red, stinging hand.


"Oh, but I'm your jerk." Edward replied simply, smiling.

"No one ever said that was a good thing." I mumbled, faking anger.

He kissed me hard on the lips.

"But you know it is."
