-Talking With Alice and Rosalie-

Bella’s POV-

I dialed Charlie’s number hoping he was home, but knew that he could be out with Billy fishing.

“Hello?” It sounded like I just woke him up.

“Hi dad!”


“Yeah, it me. I am sorry that I didn’t call earlier, but I was unpacking and getting to know my roommates.” Which was the truth, I just left out the part about Edward.

“So are you all settled in?”

“For the most part, I still have a few things to unpack. So how are you doing?”

“I am fine, I really miss your cooking though. I had eggs and toast for dinner, because that is basically the only thing I can cook without messing it up.” He chuckled. “How do you like your new roommates?”

“They are nice. I know one better than the other, but I hope to get to know her better.”

“So you like it there then?”

“Yes dad, I do. It is sunny and beautiful. I don’t miss the rain in Forks at all.”

Charlie and I talk for an hour about how work was to when I start classes and come home for break.

“Dad I am going to have to let you go now so I can try to get some sleep.”

“Okay honey. I love you and can’t wait until your first break.”

“I love you too dad. Bye.”

“Bye bye.”

I had just got off the phone when Alice and Rosalie walked in and sat on my bed. I rolled my eyes at them, but I knew I had no chance of escaping this talk unless I was dying.

“So how was your second kiss with Edward?” Rosalie asked.

“Well, every time our lips meet, there is like a spark. I know it sounds lame, but that is what I feel. To make it sound even worse I get butterflies fluttering in my stomach just being around him.”

“What did you two talk about?” Alice asked eagerly.

“We talked about where we grew up and why we chose VSU to the really simple questions like what our favorite color was. I can’t believe how easy it is to talk to him. I even share things I wouldn’t normally share with someone I’ve known for less then a day.”

“Did he talk about his past relationships?”

“Yes, but not in detail. He just told me basically the same thing you told me earlier Alice.”

“So did he ask you out on a date?” Rose asked.

“Yeah, in a way.”

“So when is this date suppose to happen?”

“That’s the thing, there was no day specified. He said ‘I don’t know if you want to or not, but would you like to go out to dinner sometime?’”

“He’s such an idiot.” Rose said while rolling her eyes.

“I don’t think so. I think he was just nervous about the whole situation. At least I know I was.”

“You know we are nosey and will be asking you about your date, whenever it happens, right?”

“Yes I know.” I huffed.

“Why don’t we go shopping tomorrow?” Alice suggested.

I did need some new clothes.

“Sure Alice, that’s a good idea.”

Alice’s face lit up. “I think we should let Bella get her rest if she’s going shopping with you.” Rose teased.

“Hey, I’m not that bad.”

They argued all the way out of my room.

Edward’s POV-

I was infuriated with Jasper and Emmett for just dragging me away like that. I didn’t want to go right then. I was enjoying Bella’s company.

“Spill it!” Emmett demanded. “I’ve never seen you act this way around anyone before. What’s so special about her?”

“I’m not quiet sure yet. What the hell were you thinking when you dragged me away, so abruptly? Did it look like I wanted to leave?”

“If we wouldn’t dragged you away, your lips would have still be locked with hers. Besides Alice and Rosie wanted to talk to her.” Emmett said.

“And it was getting late.” Jasper added.

“You know you two are starting to act like your girlfriends. Pretty soon you’ll be wearing the dresses and enjoy shopping with them.” I said hoping to get them mad enough to leave me alone. It didn’t work though.

“So that kiss you shared…” Emmett paused, but before he could continue I jumped in.

“What about it?” I hissed. “It’s really none of your business, but it was amazing and that is all I am saying about it.”

“I swear you’re going through PMS.” Emmett declared. “Did you actually ask her out?”

“Yes I did, but never had the chance to set a day for it to happen.” I shot glares at them.

“Call her and set a date and time.” Emmett suggested.

“It is too late tonight. I’ll have to do it tomorrow maybe. Now get out, I am not telling you anymore.”

They left as I asked, but I knew it wouldn’t be long before they brought it up again. I sat down on my bed and thought about calling Alice to see if Bella was still awake and get her number. I called Alice.

“What Edward?”

“Do you know if Bella is still awake?”

“Yeah, she is. Do you want to talk to her?”

Before I could answer, Bella’s voice flowed out of the phone.


“Hi Bella. It’s Edward.”


“I was wonder if you would like to go to dinner with me tomorrow night?”

“That sounds great. What time?”


“That’s perfect. I will see you then.”

“Yep, see you then.”


“Bye.” I waited until I heard the phone disconnect before hanging up.

I walked out to the living room to watch Jasper beat Emmett at a kick boxing game on the xbox.

“Did you call and actually make a date?” Jasper asked.

“Yes. Tomorrow at eight.”

“Where are you taking her?” Emmett asked.

That was a good question.

“I don’t know yet.”

It went silent again as they concentrated on beating each other. Jasper ended up wining like always. Emmett doesn’t have enough patience when it comes to playing video games. I laughed at Emmett’s rage for losing to Jasper again and decided I should get some sleep.
