A/N: Hey everyone, this is my first fanfiction so it's crucial that I get as many reviews as possible to see if I'm any good at it. This idea has been running around in my head for a while and I finally decided to put it down and see what people think of it.
All types of reviews are welcome, whether it's a compliment, constructive criticism or suggestions for later chapters. The only thing I don't want is any offensive comments. Enjoy!
Disclaimer: No matter how hard I wish otherwise, I don't own Twilight.
She Walks In Beauty
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent
"Bellaaaaa!" Alice shouted just minutes after Edward left me in his room to go hunting.
I cowered under Edward's soft golden comforter - he brought us a bed for when I come over for sleepovers - unwilling to be subjected to Alice's form of torture. Or as she likes to call it:
I shuddered just thinking about it. I wanted nothing more than to just snuggle up to the pillow underneath me that happened to be saturated with my love's Godly scent until he returned to me.
I jumped slightly at the sound of Edward's bedroom door being slammed open.
"There is no use hiding from me Bella Swan and you know it" she exclaimed half threateningly.
She sounded really close, maybe even right next to the bed. Too close in my opinion.
I sighed in resignation and frustration, knowing she was right and swept the comforter off my face to see a very happy - there for dangerous - looking pixie jumping up and down.
It would seem that someone else has other plans for me.
"Do I have to Alice?" I whined, probably sounding like a kid but at the moment I couldn't bring myself to care.
"You'll like this makeover Bella, or at least the outcome of it, I promise. Besides, it's as much for Edward this time as it is for you."
Now that got my attention. What would a makeover on me have anything to do with him?
I tried to figure out what she meant in my head but I came up blank.
Alice clearly saw the confusion written all over my face and decided to put me out of my misery.
"All will be revealed if you just follow me to my room." She practically sang.
I grudgingly got out of my safe haven bed and trudged after my best friend to meet my doom.
As soon as I laid eyes on the inside of Alice's bedroom it was as if stepping into a personal nightmare.
The whole room was swamped with so much cosmetics and clothes she could fill a shop.
Alice locked the door behind us before turning to face me with a mischievous smile on her face that instantly increased my terror of what was to come tenfold.
"Sit," she commanded, pointing to a clean patch on the soft green bed that wasn't swamped.
I done as she said and waited for her to tell me what all this is for and what she meant earlier.
After a couple of seconds, though it felt like hours to me she broke the silence.
"Now I know that you wish to take your physical relationship with Edward all the way and trust me, Edward wants it too. He's just too much of a prude to admit it to you.
I know he tells you that the reason he can't have sex with you is because he's afraid he'll hurt you, and he is, but that's not the main reason. He and I as well as Carlisle all know he could never hurt you. Not to mention that I've seen it and I've shown it to him.
The real reason is because of his morals. You have to understand that he was raised a century ago, and back then even kissing before marriage was considered shameful.
So I decided to give both of you a helping hand to show him that times have changed and it's perfectly normal to have fantasies about your girlfriend and be intimate with her these days.
Bella Swan, I am going to help you dress to seduce my brother."
By the time she finished I was pretty sure I must have invented a new shade of deep red judging from the amount of heat I could feel flooding to my face.
Alice waited for me to say something but I was unable to form a coherent word never mind sentence.
"Come on Bella, you should know by now that there are no secrets in the Cullen family"
"I do know that, but it doesn't make this any less embarrassing for me" I managed to finally mumble out.
"I know, but we're best friends and practically sisters. If you can't share these kinds of things with me, who else can you talk to about it?" She asked me softly.
Damn, she had a point there. And let's face it, I really want to be with Edward in that way and I know that Alice is way is the only one that is way more than capable to help me.
"Your right," I finally conceded "what do you have planned?"
Alice squealed loudly in excitement before pulling me into a bone crushing hug.
"Thank you Bella!" She shouted "My dear brother won't know what hit him" she stage whispered.
A/N: So what did you guys think. I only know if you R&R! Love you! :) I've got the next chapter half way written already so it shouldn't be long before I post it. Half term is nearly among us as well so I'll have plenty of time to update then. A whole week of not having to worry about assignments and deadlines (well, much).
