When I got downstairs I was greeted by a beautiful sight. The huge table in the kitchen was completely filled with food. There was so much food that I actually doubted whether it would all be gone by the end of breakfast.
There was an empty seat in between Edward and Alice so I walked over and sat down. Alice wrapped her little arms around me in a hug and smiled widely at me. "Bella! Have some food before Emmet eats it all!"
I giggled and looked towards Emmet and the monster pile of pancakes and bacon on his plate. He was shovelling the forkfuls of food into his mouth like he had never eaten before and of course I knew that that wasn't true.
Edward chuckled quietly to my left and I turned to face him slowly. He looked amazing today. He was dressed in a pair of blue jeans and a maroon zip up hoodie. I couldn't see what he had under it but I knew that it was bound to look fabulous.
He turned his head towards me and said "Good morning Bella." His voice like velvet made me gasp.
"Good morning Edward."
"If I were you I would take Alice's advice because Emmet really does eat like a horse."
When he said this I reached for the waffles, placed 2 on my plate and smothered them in syrup. I then cut up a strawberry and placed that on top. All the while I could see Edward watching what I was doing. I looked up and smiled at him.
"Can I interest you in a strawberry delight?"
He smirked. "Strawberry delight huh? Looks good." He picked up my fork and cut a section off and placed it to his lips. After what seemed a lifetime he actually opened his mouth and made a satisfied groan.
"Ok, I can see why you call it a delight. That was… delightful." I burst out into a fit of giggles and snatched my fork back, carrying on with my breakfast. I didn't realise that anyone had noticed our little encounter until later on when Alice pulled me to the side.
"Bella, what was that about with Edward at breakfast?" I blushed furiously and pulled my hair over my eye.
"It wasn't anything really, I just like him, he's very… nice."
Alice shocked me then by squealing and jumping up and down on her bed. "Aaahhh!" I flinched back and frowned up at her. "Alice what are you..?" She reached down and pulled me up to her level. Jumping up and down proved to be even more fun than I thought it would be. I had girlfriends back in school but none that I would actually feel comfortable like this with.
"Alice, Alice! Why are we bouncing?" She stopped as if thinking for a second and then realised. "BECAUSE YOU LOVE EDWARD!" I frowned at her and sat down.
"Alice seriously, I have known him what? 2 days? No."
She just laughed as though she knew better than me and started bouncing again. After about half an hour, I was starting to get dizzy and told Alice I wanted to call my father.
She smiled and led me straight to a room that had literally just a black grand piano and an old Victorian sofa with four cherry wood legs. The fabric on the chair was a dark maroon colour and the sofa matched the stool that sat at the piano. I turned to Alice with questions in my eyes.
"Alice are you sure its ok that I am in her?" She frowned. "Why wouldn't it be ok?" When she asked the question I realised that couldn't really answer her. I did my best. "This space, this room. It just, it feels like such a personal place. Is it yours?"
Somehow I already knew the answer. I could smell him. "No silly, it is Edwards music room." This made me smile and cringe at the same time. Would he really be ok with me being in his music room?
By the time I had stopped thinking, Alice ha left and closed the door. Too late now then, I thought. I walked over to the sofa and tentatively touched the arms on either side of the sofa. I trailed my fingers over the soft fabric and walked around to the back of the chair. I was imagining Edward sat here listening to his music. Writing his music? I wanted so much to find out.
I walked back to the front of the chair and sat down lightly on the sofa. The chair that looked as though it would be firm and creaky surprised me by pulling me into what could almost be described as an embrace. I felt so at home in that room that I could have stayed there all day. I however knew I needed to call my dad so I dialled his number.
The conversation only lasted for about 10 minutes as he cautiously answered her questions. She wasn't allowed to go home yet. She wasn't allowed to go back to school and she wasn't allowed the details of what was happening with Jacob. She left the music room reluctantly and headed to the movie room they had been in the previous night. She found Alice and Jasper in there and knocked gently on the door.
"Bella! Come in!" She did slowly and sat down on the loveseat that her and Edward had been sat on last time she was in here. Alice knew something was bothering her instantly and asked her what was wrong. She explained about the way her dad wouldn't tell her anything about the situation. Alice and Jasper decided she needed cheering up and so decided to call everyone else back. The day was Sunday and Bella would be taking part in her first home tutoring session. Alice knew that Bella had no clothes of her own left and so decided that it was high time for an Alice style shopping trip.
Bella saw this dreamy look on Alice's face and stared questionably at Jasper who just sighed. "Bella, do you like shopping?" She smiled. "Yeah, I don't mind it why?" He grimaced. "You are in for a long day Bella."
