Bella’s Point of View:

When I woke up the next morning, I went directly to the bathroom and got dressed. Once I was finished I went downstairs to the kitchen to find the whole family sitting at the table, talking to each other about this and that.

“Oh good morning dear. Did you sleep well?” Esme asked.

“I did. Thank you so much for letting me stay with you.”

“Of course dear, you are welcome to stay here any time you like.”

“Well I appreciate that.” Esme smiled kindly towards me.

“Charlie called; he’s on his way home. He decided to cut the trip a little short. The fish weren’t biting, but you are more than welcome to stay here again tonight, like what we planned.” Carlisle said.

“As much as I appreciate the offer, and would love to stay here, I think I should probably get home. Charlie doesn’t do well when fending for himself.” I explained.

“Ah, you mean the whole cooking thing.” Carlisle stated, and the family started cracking up.

“Yeah, pretty much.” I smiled.

“Well would you at least like to stay until lunch?” Carlisle offered.

“I suppose I could do that.”

“I would hope so, it’s already ten thirty. Even if you stay until lunch that’s not very long. Can I do your makeup?” Alice was practically jumping out of her seat with excitement.

“Um…”

“Alice, leave the poor girl alone.” Esme scolded.

“But she didn’t say no.” Alice replied.

“And she didn’t say yes either.” Esme replied kindly.

“It’s OK, if you want to do my makeup, you can.” I didn’t really feel like having a makeover, but Alice wanted to do it, and I liked her, and wanted to be her friend, so why not?

“Follow me!” Alice said triumphantly. I stood up and followed Alice upstairs and to her bathroom.

“Sit.” She instructed. “Please.” She added.

I sat down on the big comfy chair in front of a huge mirror.

“Are you wearing that all day?” Alice asked me.

“Um…I planned on it.” I replied, unsure of where she was going with that question.

“That’s fine; I just want your makeup to match your outfit.”

“Oh.” I responded.

I sat in the seat for what seemed like forever while Alice applied makeup, and then started doing my hair.

“Girls, lunch is ready.” Esme said, while walking into the room.

“What do you think?” Alice asked her.

“Wow Bella, you look stunning.”

“Thank you.” I was sure I was probably blushing, although with the blush that Alice put on me, I wasn’t sure it would be noticeable.

“We’ll be right down. I just want to add one more touch.” Alice told Esme.

“OK.” Esme walked out the door, and Alice started rummaging through a drawer.

“Here we go.” Alice pulled out a necklace, and placed it around my neck. It was a simple silver chain with a crystal locket hanging at the end.

“It’s beautiful.” I said.

“You think?” She asked, cocking her head to the side.

“Absolutely.”

“Then it’s yours.”

“Oh, Alice, I couldn’t…” I stammered.

“Of course you can. I insist. Please keep it. It looks beautiful on you.”

“Thank you so much.”

“Sure. Now let’s go eat.” I stood up and walked down stairs with Alice, and headed into the kitchen.

Alice sat down next to Jasper, and the only open seat was next to Edward.

“You look nice.” He said smiling kindly at me.

“Thanks.” I replied shyly. He just smiled brighter. Esme placed a large bowl of spaghetti in the middle of the table.

“Dig in.” Emmett announced, grabbing his fork excitedly.

“Ladies first.” Rose pointed out.

“Actually I think its guests first.” Alice pointed out. Everyone looked at me.

“Oh.” I replied, and dished myself some spaghetti. Then everyone followed after me.

“Are you nervous about school?” Carlisle asked me in between bites.

“A little bit.” I replied. The truth was I was dreading school. I normally liked school, and I didn’t have difficultly getting along with people, but my quietness tends to make it hard to make friends.

“That’s understandable.” Esme stated. I nodded.

“But we’ll all be there for ya.” Alice claimed happily.

“Thanks.” I smiled.

All of a sudden a beeper went off, and Carlisle excused himself from the table to make a phone call. Walking back into the room he said, “Well looks like I’m needed at the hospital. I’m sorry Bella, but I won’t be able to take you home.”

“That’s OK.” I replied.

“I can take her.” Edward offered.

“That would be great, thanks Edward.” Carlisle replied.

“Sure.”
