Disclaimer: I don't anything. Twilight and its characters all belong to Stephenie Meyer & song belongs to the lovely Katy Perry. But I do own this story and the plot so that's good enough for me. Wahaha! Anything that happens in this story, that happened to you in real life is just pure coincidence. LOL.
Full Summary: Bella Swan has always been "One of the Boys". She also happens to be in love with her best-friend, Edward Cullen. Too bad Edward only sees her as a friend or at least that's what she thinks… So what happens when after one summer, she decides to trade in her jeans for miniskirts? Inspired by Katy Perry's One of the Boys. Rated M for future lemons.
After Edward dropped me off at my house after our… moment of intimacy, I felt myself smiling like an idiot the rest of the evening. It's just that, I've never been so… happy in my life. I guess my dad must've noticed it too since he asked me about it during dinner.
"What are you so smiley about?" he inquired.
"Oh you know… my birthday." I smiled while looking down on my dinner plate.
I know that I don't like celebrating my birthday and so does my dad, but hell, it was better than telling him the real reason. As if I'm going to look straight into my dad's eye and come out straight with it: Oh dad! I'm just so happy because I have a great dad, friends, and a boyfriend who just sexed up your daughter… in his car… right before dinner time... Yup! Good times… good times…
Nope. Definitely not telling him that. Not unless I wanted to see a gravestone that read: Here lies Edward fuck-your-daughter Cullen. A son, a brother, and a hooligan. And besides, it wasn't entirely Edward's fault. I wanted it as much as he did, but my dad would never believe that. He thinks that I'm his perfect and innocent little girl… But little does he know that underneath that it a slightly sex-crazed maniac that thinks about certain body parts of Edward every now and then. Yup. Definitely going to hell.
"Wow. For once, she's actually excited for her birthday for once." he teased.
"Er… Yeah... I mean, nobody likes getting old but I guess if you spend it with the people you love, it's not so bad."
"I'm glad you see it my way, kiddo." he smiled.
"Me too dad, me too…"
Oh dad, I'm glad you think that I think I see it your way. It saves me the worrying of Edward's entire being.
"Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday day to yo-" dad sang before I interrupted.
"Daddy! It's a little too early to sing that, don't you think?" I suggested.
I certainly didn't need to hear him sing happy birthday, or sing in general. Let me put it in the nicest way that I could, if there was one person in the world who sings just as bad as Emmett, it's my dad. Or maybe that's what I think when he sings drunk. During the Christmas party at the Police Station last year, which I went to with my dad, he got drunk off of the wine-coolers and let me just add that my dad raped the microphone of the karaoke machine. Which explains why my dad was the butt of every joke his fellow co-workers for the entire month of January.
"Nonsense! It's tomorrow. But if you insist, I'll save it for tomorrow then." he said.
"Thank you." I thanked before taking a bite out of my dinner.
"I forgot to ask, how was school today?"
It was fucking great. Pun intended.
"Eh… It's alright." I lied.
"That's nice. What did you do after school?"
"Pep-rally. We raised money for new uniforms and equipment for the cheer squad and football team." I mentioned.
"That great honey! It's nice to see that your doing something productive after school." he smiled.
Define "productive". Because if your referring to what me and Edward did a few moments ago, then yes. We are being "productive". Oh yeah, that so beats playing Jenga and Candyland with Edward every after school back then as kids…
"Yeah… It really is." I smiled before finished the rest of my dinner.
As soon as I was done, I placed my plate in the dishwasher and kissed my dad goodnight before heading upstairs and into my room.
Since it was a little too early to go to sleep, I ended up watching a replay episodes of Gossip Girl while lying on my bed and cuddling Peyton. Which brings us to the irony because it so happens that one episode was the one about Blair's Seventeenth Birthday. Really, no one can be so great with Blair other than that Mother Chucker. I didn't see the whole Blair and Nate, the Blair and Dan and especially that Blair and Louis thing. It didn't matter if he was royalty, I'm still Team Bass despite everything.
Not long after, I decided to close the T.V and let unconsciousness sink in…
My sleep felt like forever and during my sleep, I had a dream where I was at my Grandma Helen's house. Grandma Helen was my dad's mother and she had been deceased since I was twelve. Grandma Helen was sitting in the old rocking chair in her living room, while I was sitting on the couch. Grandma kept going on and on about how I was now a little lady and that I was so pretty.
"Thanks Grandma. I do take after you." I complimented.
"That's right. You get all your looks from me and not your mother." she said which made me giggle.
Grandma Helen never really liked Renee. I guess this was because she left me with Charlie and because Charlie had no idea how to take care of a girl, Grandma Helen was the only one to help.
"So, has my grand-daughter met anyone special?" she said smiling.
Normally I was a very shy person to share this information to anyone except my girlfriends, but we were so close before she died. She was in fact, the only person who I told that I had a crush on Mike Newton back then in the third grade… aside from Edward that is.
"Yes. As a matter of fact I did. Do you remember Edward?" I asked.
Edward met my Grandma Helen on a few occasions which included a couple of my birthdays and some Christmases. They seem to get along quite well especially when Grandma Helen would tell him the stories about Grandpa Geoffrey's time during World War II. I wish I could say the same for Emmett but unlike Edward, he spent his time terrorizing the Gingerbread house my Grandma would bring.
"Do I remember Edward? Of course I do! That's great sweetie! I always knew that that boy liked you." she smiled.
"He better be treating you right." she added.
"He does. He treats me like a princess… " I said smiling at the thought.
Edward treated far more better than I deserved. I was so lucky to have him…
"Aw! Well isn't that cute. I always liked him for you…" she complimented.
After a few seconds a huge smile appeared on Grandma's face which confused me. Then I heard someone clear their throat behind me. I turn around to find that it's Edward. One minute I was in Grandma's house and next I was standing in our meadow with just the two of us. He strides toward me and pulls me into a hug causing me to inhale his wonderful sweet scent.
Before I know it, I'm being pulled down to the ground by him where there was a picnic quilt. I rested my head against his chest and then I felt his cool breath on my ear.
"Happy Birthday Bella, my love…" he whispered before placing several kissed on top of my head while tracing lines and down my arms with a finger.
For some reason, Edward's kisses and touch felt so… real.
I then finally realized that it felt real… because it was real.
As my eyes fluttered open, I found myself waking up to Signs by Bloc Party playing on my iHome, which read 9:30 am, and an arm encompassed around me. I slowly turn around to find Edward's face mere inches away from mine.
"Morning…" I greeted smiling at him despite the fact that I felt slightly groggy.
"Morning baby…" he said before leaning in the kiss my forehead.
"Morning… Wait, how did you get in?" I wondered.
"Your dad let me in. He thought it was only fair to give me time to set up before you woke up." he explained.
"Set up? What are you taking about?" I asked.
"Bella…" he muttered.
"…look around…" he said.
And with that being said, I did as he told me and I sat up from my bed and soon found myself looking around my room. Only… it was different.
Pastel colored balloons with strings covered the entire ceiling of my room. It didn't even feel like my room anymore. It was beautiful…
"Happy Birthday love…" he muttered before placing a kiss on my neck.
I can feel tears build up my eyes but I refuse to let them escape. I turn my head slightly to give Edward a long kiss.
"Thank you… it's wonderful. I love it." I murmured after pulling away from our kiss.
"Don't thank me just yet. This is just the first of many things for today. Today is all about you." he said.
I tried to protest but before I could say anything, Edward beats me to it by giving a quick peck on my lips.
"Please don't argue with anything we do for the rest of the day. I want to spend time with you. I want to spoil you. I want… I want to make you happy…" he said.
It wasn't even a wedding vow and I already wanted to cry. I swear, if Edward keeps this up, the term cry me a river will no longer be metaphorical.
"But you already do. You make me so happy just by being with me." I confessed.
I lean toward him to give him another kiss, but before my lips could connect with his, I hear three quick raps on my door. Before I know it, my dad come barging in my room with a tray of breakfast and I try putting as much distant between Edward and me. I didn't want my dad to kick Edward out of the house. Especially on my birthday.
"Happy Birthday Sweetheart!" dad greeted before placing the tray of breakfast in front of me before sitting on the edge of my bed.
I guess Edward took this as his cue to leave because he said he would leave the two of us to talk and have our father-daughter moment. Oh yeah. Edward was definitely throwing my into the tank of sharks. I glare at him as he walked towards the door and he just smiled mouthing the words I love you before leaving the room.
"Wow dad! This looks yummy!" I said before taking a bite out of a Pop-Tart and the Pancakes dad made me. Although he was no chef, my dad's pancakes were delicious.
"Correction, it IS yummy." I complimented.
"I'm glad you think so too." dad smiled, looking pleased with himself.
After I finished my breakfast, my dad places a paper bag.
"What's this?" I asked while reaching out for the bag.
I open the bag and find myself holding a camera.
Those expensive SLR cameras to be exact.
"Dad… you didn't ha-" I said but my dad interrupted me.
"I know I didn't. But I want to. By the way, this is from your mom and Phil." he said handing me a white envelope.
I opened it to find one of those Hallmark Greeting Cards. As soon as I open the card, I hear my mom's voice.
"Happy Birthday Bella! Hope to see you soon!" the card said.
I noticed that there was something wedged inside the card and I find myself holding a ticket to Florida.
"Your mom wanted you to visit soon. So when you do get the chance, I think you should visit her." dad said.
Ever since the incident that happened a few weeks ago, my mom was trying to make it up to me by trying to be a good mom now. I guess by sending me a ticket to visit her, it's another way of making amends.
"Thank you daddy. I love your gift so much." I said before giving him a hug.
He really was the best dad in the world.
"I'll give you some time to change. Happy Birthday Princess." he said giving me a kiss on the forehead and getting up from my bed and walking towards the door. But before he could make it out the door, he bends down to pick up something he stepped on.
I soon find him holding Peyton and placing him on top the chair in the corner of my room before leaving. How the hell did Peyton end up across the room and on the floor?
On second thought, I didn't want to know.
Since I didn't want Edward to wait long, I took a quick shower and dressed in a sixteen candles shirt even though I wasn't sixteen anymore, and a pair of denim shorts and flats. My curled my hair as quickly as I could before heading down stairs to find Edward and dad sitting on the couch of the living room watching the NBA finals game between Heat and Mavs.
Edward turns to look at me and smiles before getting up off the couch.
"Ready to go?" I asked.
"Yup." he said before interlacing his fingers with mine.
"You kids have fun OK?"
"Yes sir, I'll have her back by eight." Edward assured dad.
Usually my dad would let me stay out until ten but that was before I was grounded. But hey, I was even lucky that my dad would let me go out since he only let me stay out after school because of school activities.
"She can stay out as long as she wants."
"What?" both me and Edward ask bewildered.
"Bella, I've decided that you've learned your lesson. So… you're no longer grounded." my dad said.
"Really? Thank you daddy!" I said.
I let go of Edward's hand and gave my dad the biggest hug ever. I turn my attention back to Edward who is just smiling and his eye glistening.
He of all people would be happy about my un-grounding.
As soon as we said our good-byes to my dad, me and Edward were out the door and into his Volvo before heading towards his place.
During the car ride, I couldn't help but notice that Edward was smiling the entire time.
"What are you all smiles and rainbows about?" I asked.
I suddenly remembered the conversation I had with my dad last night. Er…
"Bella, your father just gave back your freedom. You do know what that means right?" he said while giving me the you-know-what-I'm-talking-about look.
I knew that he meant that since I was no longer grounded, we could spend all our time together, but I decided to play dumb.
"No… I don't know what it means…" I teased.
"Well then, I guess this means I have to show you." he said.
And before my mind could even register what was happening, Edward moves his car to one side of the road, takes his seatbelt off, as well as mine, and crashes his lips to mine and sucking on my bottom lip.
"That's what it means." he said panting before returning to our heavy makeout-session.
It would've lasted longer if it weren't for the fact that his phone started going off wildly.
"Shit…" he muttered before answer his phone.
"Yeah. She's with me right now."
"We were actually in the middle of something before you interrupted us." he grumbled.
"Ok. Yeah. Sure. Bye." he said before putting his phone down.
"That was Alice. She's looking for us. We better get to my house before she calls again." he teased before starting the car.
The rest of the car ride was spent talking about things like the advantages of my freedom. Which Edward decided to talk about. Typical. I asked about what we were doing today but he wouldn't say anything, saying that it'll "ruin the surprise". I swear, he is just like his sister sometimes… and every now and then, Edward would take my hand in his and brush his lips against my knuckles which would cause me to blush.
Alas! After what seemed like forever, we finally reached Edward's house. Not that I had a problem with the car ride, in fact, if I had it my way, we would be off somewhere doing whatever it is with just the two of us… Edward placed his hand in the small of my back as we headed towards the front door.
As soon as we stepped in, Edward opened the lights and all of a sudden, everyone shouted Surprise!
"Happy Birthday Bella!" Esme greeted before pulling me into a hug.
"Thank you!" I said.
"Happy Birthday Bella." Carlisle smiled before giving me a hug as well.
"Aw Thanks." I said.
After being greeted by each and everyone, we all ended up in the dining room for the lunch that Esme made for all of us for my birthday. And as always, Esme does not disappoint. Esme made Italian, which was both mine and Edward's favorite and it was absolutely to die for.
"Esme, your cooking is just amazing. I'm going to get a pot belly because of your food!" I complimented after finishing my second plate of mushroom ravioli.
"Aw! Thank you deary! And don't worry, your as fit as can be ever since you joined cheerleading with Alice and Rose. I doubt that you'll get one anyway." she said looking at Alice and Rose.
I look at them both who are just smiling. Oh yeah. They most certainly are proud of me being a part of the cheer squad. They begged me over the years to do girly things with them but every time they would, I'd put my foot down. That is until recently…
"And even if you did get a pot belly, you'd still be pretty Bella…." Carlisle complimented.
"…It's just food, it's not like it's a baby unless Edw-" Carlisle went on before Edward cut him off.
"Dad. Not at the table. Please." Edward begged looking at his father with wide eyes.
Oh my god.
I know that I blush a lot but never, and I repeat, never in my life have I felt like I was blushing so hard like I was now. I knew Edward's Dr. DILF of a father was about to say "unless Edward knocks you up" or "sperminates you." or something along those lines.
I looked at everyone who pretty much trying to refrain from laughing. But a giggle or two escaped. Oh god. How did his father know we were even… active? If my dad won't kill Edward, then I probably will. Eventually, the awkwardness died down, thankfully, and we ended up enjoying Esme's famous Key-Lime-Pie. After dessert we all headed to the living room to watch a bunch of movies.
Esme and Carlisle didn't stay long because they were going to a couples retreat and wouldn't be back by Monday. Esme and Carlisle said that their present for me was with Alice. Esme gave me a kiss on the cheek and a hug before Carlisle did.
While I hugged Carlisle, I heard him something in my ear.
"I'm sorry about earlier today. I didn't mean to embarrass you. Bella, if you need any… contraception, I'm more than happy to give you some. Besides, Rosalie gets hers from me." he chuckled.
Again, OH MY GOD.
I was being offered contraception… by my boyfriend's father.
I don't know whether to think that my boyfriend's father is the coolest father to ever walk the earth, right next to Gene Simmons and Ozzy Osbourne or if he's completely out of his mind. Either way, my face turned into a shade like that of a tomato.
"Have mercy on my son." He teased before patting my back and leaving with Esme.
And again, OH MY GOD.
I sat back down on my seat on the couch, next to Edward, trying to pull my shit together. Edward, wasn't paying attention to the movie, but instead, me. I guess he noticed how tense I was so he tried to calm me down but kissing my cheek and down to my neck. Obviously, this is not helping as my heart started to accelerate, as always.
But before he could continue, the T.V goes off and I'm suddenly being pulled off the couch by Alice and Rose.
"Where are we going?" I asked them.
"Where are we going? You've got to get changed!" Alice exclaimed.
"For what?" I asked.
"No questions. Just cooperation." Rose interjected as we headed up the stairs.
I look at Edward who's giving a just-go-with-it look before I disappeared up the stairs.
Oooh. What's going to happen next? And yes, to those who are wondering, Bella's only turning seventeen. She is only a junior in this story after all. First off I just want to say that I'm so sorry for the huge delay on updating. Guess who's CPU decided to crash and burn at the most inconvenient time ever? :| I know, Excuses, excuses... but fear not! I am back and ready to get back to writing. These last three weeks weren't wasted though. While my computer was in a repair shop, I've been thinking about several plot lines. Well I'm back and ready to write. I go back to school next Monday but I will make sure that I update at least ONCE A WEEK. Sorry, but education comes first. Again, thank you for the many responses over the past few weeks. And I hope you guys can leave me some love, or hate (I always welcome criticisms. No biting though). Either way, I'm getting reviews. Suggestions and comments are most appreciated. :) Let's try to reach over 400? Pretty please? Thanks and enjoy! Till then ;)
