LAST CHAPTER! Holy fuck, we finally finished this slow death. How long did this bastard take... two, three years? More?
I don't think I've ever done this: I don't own Twilight, the characters, the settings, or anything else, and I didn't own it in the previous chapters.
1 year later
It's been an interesting year. Alice turned up on my doorstep and after lots and lots and lots of talking and a slap, that became one of the most awkward starts to a relationship. I found myself working at someone's stables and became the owners' bitch; dragging squares of hay weighing the same as me, shovelling mountains of horse crap, and light building that was mostly carrying planks of wood and passing them to the guys. That was until I fell off the fucking roof and broke my arm. My shoulder still hurts when it's cold... so, all the time.
Benjamin apparently skipped the whole business school, saved his money, went to an auto mechanic school and was planning on opening his own shop soonish, promising a second in command position for Rose. While all that was happening, Charlie was stabbed during a run of the mill grab and run, Renee and Phil eloped to Vegas, and I was told Kate was found with three ounces of coke on her but nothing happened. Woo.
Rose became pregnant about two months after the wedding, I know, they didn't waste any time, Peter made a full recovery and then moved in with Charlotte later in the year. Jasper took Alice's apartment, that apartment should be the official representation for recycling, but then I got a call from him saying he had moved to Seattle and was living in the University District with Embry.
I felt something hit the back of my head. I rubbed my head and looked at the balled up socks by my feet. I turned around and glared at Alice.
"Was that really necessary?"
"Yes. Go downstairs and get the last two boxes." She dropped a box on the couch and then did her version of a Superwoman pose.
"Why?" I whined as I grabbed her around the waist.
"Because I have done all the work, and don't you deny it."
"I drove," I pressed my forehead against hers as I thought. "I... made you cum at least twice before we left."
"Those don't count. Go," She kissed me lightly. "Before I kick you out and you have to explain to Jasper why you're on his doorstep on our first night here."
"You drive a hard bargain, pixie." I squeezed her hip and went down the two floors to the car out front, taking both boxes in one go which nearly killed me when I found out one of them was filled with books. I sat on the boxes and stretched out my arms. "When did we have so much crap?"
"It's mostly yours." Alice sat down on my knee. I laughed.
"Me? Most of the boxes are your fucking clothes. I don't even know if we're going to able to fit all of them in here."
"My clothes collection is the perfect size, it's you that wears the same clothes like a cartoon character." Alice got up and went into the kitchen, plugging in the kettle and made coffee. Jasper got the coffee maker... and the big TV and also the good laptop. It's almost like we divorced and I got the shitty stuff. I stood up and leaned next to the window. It was busy in the city today.
"Do you think Seattle is going to like us?"
"I don't know about you but I know Seattle will love me." I chuckled. I rolled my shoulder and heard a click. "How's your shoulder?" Alice came up behind me and passed me my mug. I hummed and took a sip. "Bella, tell me."
"It's fine. I'm pretty sure it's never going to be the same so it's fine." She kissed my shoulder and then went into our new bedroom. I continued to stare out the window and left after a strong wind turned a woman's skirt inside out and showed off her pink thong. Alice had the bed already made, the tall thin bookcase filled with DVDs, most of my boxes were on the other side of the bed, and she was putting clothes in the wardrobe next to it. "How long was I staring at that woman?"
"What woman?" She put a pair of heels at the bottom and straightened up.
"Some wind came and showed her thong."
"So that's why you wanted to move here. Or it is because you would be closer to Jasper?"
"Even though I can't live a single moment without the homo, I think the wind wins out." I fell back on the bed. "Only just though." Alice dropped the dress she was holding and jumped on top of me, caging me. "You're very cuddly today... Did you do something?"
"I'm always cuddly. How do you feel about going back to school?"
"It'll be fine. It's college, you don't get that stupid whiny bullshit drama and problems you get in high school. You spend most of your time in frat houses, smoking pot, experimenting, and pretending to pay attention in class."
"That's what people like to think college is." She rolled over and laid on her side. "How do you think the room is coming along?" I looked around the room and shrugged.
"Since it seems your side of the room is pretty much finished, I better start on my side." I started sitting up but Alice pulled me back. "Whoa, easy there, Tinkerbell."
"You can unpack later, but right now..." She trailed off as she started tugging at the bottom of my shirt.
"New apartment sex?" I grinned and turned around.
"Just because you put something in front of sex doesn't make it a thing, Bella."
"Don't screw up my logic." I grabbed her hips and rolled us, her coming out on top. "I think everything's going to turn out alright." She nodded and I kissed her.
I know this was very short but I thought it was the best way to go, I think I tied everything up, it's a good place to start the sequel, and you get a little Bellice fluff. Expect the first chapter of the sequel in... ooh, two weeks at the least.
For old times sake, throw a review my way.
