“HAPPY GRADUATION DAY, BELLA!!!!”
I opened one eye-was I having a dream? I was still in bed, but no, I can’t be dreaming.
I sat up and looked at the 3 people in front of me; Charlie, Renée, and Alice.
“Thanks, guys.” I said. I rolled out of bed and went over to them-how nice, my own personal alarm clock. I was still half asleep, though. I knew Alice was here to help me with my hair, Charlie lived here, and Renee-
“MOM!!!” I screamed as I ran to her.
“Well, now, it’s about time.” She joked as she opened her arms for me. I hugged her.
“When did you get here?” I asked her.
“Just now. God, this place hasn’t changed a bit.” She said as she looked around. Charlie was looking a little sheepish.
I nodded. “I am glad you came mom.”I said to her. She nodded too.
“Bella, the graduation is in two hours-why don’t you go take a shower and then we can work on your hair and such.” Alice suggested. I nodded.
“That will give you some more time to get to know Alice and catch up with Charlie.” I said.
Before anyone could respond my bed room phone rang. I leaned my head to the side, who would call so early?
Only one way to find out. I walked over and answered it.
“Hello?” I asked.
“Bella, you’re on speaker phone.” Edward said. Before I could say anything I heard another chorus.
“CONGRADULATIONS BELLA!!” I heard the Cullen’s yell, all but Alice because she was here.
“Thanks everyone-but I didn’t even graduate yet.”
“Oh, we know. That was just the early congratulations- we saved the real celebrating for later.” Edward chuckled.
“Alright, I don’t know what you all planed-but I suppose I will find out sooner or later.” “I love you, Bella.” Edward said.
“I love you too.” And then I hung up the phone.
I left the 3 of them in my room and went to go take a shower.
I was sitting down in an uncomfortable metal folding chair in the school gym. I was in my graduation gown waiting for the moment when they would call my name to accept my diploma.
After Alice did my hair, Edward and Alice drove me to the high school. My mom and Charlie went together in the cruiser following Edward Alice and I.
we made it to the school 10 minutes early because all of the parents (Renée, Charlie, Carlisle, and Esme) insisted that they spend all of that time taking pictures.Then after that was done we thankfully got to escape to go take our seats.
The students were in the chairs in front of the stage and all of the parents were behind.I was probably the only one full of anxiousness and worry. I was afraid that I was going to do something stupid like fall or trip while I am on stage.
But graduation was not the only thing that was making me feel like this-tomorrow was the wedding. Just thinking about it more made me feel queasy.
Edward was 5 rows in front of me sitting next to Alice-we were in alphabetical order. I wish he was next to me, he may help me feel better-but there was nothing I could do anyway.
I sat through 40 minutes of other students getting their diploma. 10 minutes of which our class speaker came in-I thought I was going to fall asleep during that…I watched Alice then Edward go and get their diplomas.
I and Esme, Carlisle, and Renée clapped loudly when they went on stage. Charlie didn’t even clap at all-only for Alice.Esme was just taking picture after picture of them-and even of me sitting in my chair. Which personally was going way over the top, all I was doing was sitting down-rather awkwardly too because of my gown and hat (they were so uncomfortable).
Then it was my turn to come on stage.“Isabella Swan.” Our principal said through the microphone. I got up unwillingly, stumbled through the row of chairs, and made it safely on stage.
All of the Cullen’s and my own family were clapping loudly. I blushed so hard it made my face burn. I took my diploma and shook my principal’s hand, then went to go take my seat again.
It was very hard finding my seat though because of all the bright flashes of Esme’s camera.Then it was finally over. An
d I didn’t even trip! That was a miracle for me.I made my way over to the Cullen’s and my mom and dad when it ended.
“Bella, you did wonderful!!!” my mom screamed. She came over and gave me a hug.
“Bella, good job.”Charlie said to me. We hugged quite awkwardly. I smiled at him.
“Bella, you did a fine job.” Carlisle said to me. Edward and Alice joined me at my side. “Thanks, Carlisle.” He nodded.
“Bella, wonderful!! I have it all on camera, so now you can relive the moment over and over again.” Esme exclaimed.Jeez, thanks Esme.
That was the last thing I wanted to do, relive it over and over again.
“Thank you, Esme.” I smiled as best as I could up at her.
“Bella, just think, your done with high school, how cool is that?!” Alice squealed.
“Pretty cool, I guess.” I said to her. She rolled her eyes, “you only graduate once.” She reminded me.“So, how many times have you graduated.” I whispered.
“Never mind that, we aren’t talking about me here.”“Alice, just let it go.” Edward said to her.
She rolled her eyes,“fine.”Edward turned to me.
“Amazing, love. You really did do good.” He embraced me, and then kissed me on my forehead. I stood on my toes to kiss him on the cheek.“I love you.” I said to him.“I love you too.” He answered. By looking in his eyes I was sure he meant it.
“Bella, come on. We are going to be late!!” Alice said to me.
Alice and Rosalie had dressed me up in the most ridicules dress, it was strapless, it went way below my ankles and had a trail behind it. It was a dark purple and had a design with the material of the dress in it that made it all the more elegant.
My hair was down and curled along my back. I still didn’t get why I was so dressed up. Alice and Rosalie were too- Both in their signature colors; Alice in a black dress and Rosalie in red.
“Alice please tell me where we are going.” I protested.“It’s a surprise. Everyone will be there, so get a move on.”
All of a sudden she scooped me up in her arms and carried me to her car.“Alice I hate being man handled, put me down!”
“fine.” She put me down once I was in the car.
“Obviously you see there is no way to get out of this.” She smirked at me as she was driving away from the house, it was just me and she in the car-Rosalie went with Emmett.It was at the next 5 traffic lights that Alice reached over and grabbed something out of the back seat.
“What is that?” I asked her.
“Your blind fold.” She answered simply.
“oh.” I sat there for a moment contemplating that.
“MY WHAT??” I asked her.
“Bella, don’t get angry I just need to do this because it’s a surprise.” She was reaching over to put it on me.
“Bella, this can be-” I stopped Alice in the middle of her threat.
“Yeah yeah, I have heard that one before. Alice you know I hate surprises.” I complained.
“But I love them, and you’re going to love this one too. Just let me put this on you and-”I pulled back again. Alice smirked and before I knew it I couldn’t see anything. She had put the blind fold on me in less than a second.
“Alice, that was not fair.”
I was pouty for the whole rest of the car ride. It really freaked me out that I couldn’t see where I was going-especially in Alice’s hands. We could be going to the mall for all I knew. I shuddered at that thought.
It was only in a little while when we stopped and I heard Alice turn the car off.
“We are here!” she announced.
She opened my door and helped me out. It was hard because I couldn’t see anything and the dress was long-which just added a lot more to my usual clumsiness.She walked me to what seemed like the door.
When we got in this place everything was silent. She walked me over to a spot.“Alice, really, where are we?” I asked her again.
She slipped the blind fold off. All of a sudden a bunch of people popped out of their ‘hiding places’. It looked to be a back room of a fancy restaurant. All of the people that were invited to the wedding were there. And Edward was across from me.
“SURPRISE!!” they all screamed.
“What is this for?” I asked, recovering from when I jumped at the sudden loud noise.
“HAPPY GRADUATION AND CONGRADS ON YOUR WEDDING!!!” they all shouted again.
Everyone was here, people from the school and family members like Charlie and Renée.
“wow.” Was all I could say. The room was huge and decorated beautifully.
“Bella, we all figured that you needed a graduation party, but also a bachelorette party. But Edward didn’t want a bachelor party, and we figured you didn’t want a bachelorette party either. So we decided to have a ‘pre wedding party and graduation party. So instead of two small parties we made them one big one. Isn’t that wonderful?” Esme explained to me.
“You look wonderful Bella.” She added.
I hugged her. “Thanks so much.”
“You’re welcome.” I felt cool and strong arms around me then.
“Edward.” I said.“Yes?” he asked me.He spun me around so that he could see me and I could see him.He was breathtaking; he had on a tux, but every time no matter what I will always be stunned when I see him in a tux.
“You’re beautiful; there are no words to describe how lovely you look.” He said looking in my eyes.
“You always take my words when it comes to this.” I joked.
“I love you.”
“I love you too, Edward.”Then I felt his ice cold hard lips on mine. I kissed him back. We stopped because now jasper and Emmett were hollering.
“Aww, why did you stop?” Jasper laughed.
“Yeah, it was just getting good.” Emmett joked.
Edward looked annoyed, I rolled my eyes.
Although they were funny, and annoying, I couldn’t wait to be a part of the Cullen’s family, to have older brothers.
I was now more excited than anything else. I decided to join in on the fun; it was my last night as Bella Swan.
I went over to them and hugged both of them.“I know you two both mean well.” I rolled my eyes and whet to go grab Edward to talk to my mom.
