"Nice one Edward...'I'll ask Mr.Bartley if we can do it for homework." , "Uh-huh." How stupid are you really-"
"Edward I could feel how angry Alice is...and I know hows she bad mouthing you in her thoughts-"
"Really does she is not that perfect for you to be all-"
"Oh wow Edward I am so sorry for you, you should see what she is writing down in her notebook-"
"Stupid Penny, stupid you, I mean I know I don't lose my temper this easily but I told you about my vision and here you are-"
"Ha ha this part is funny, 'I am going to rip Edward's head off and flush it in the toilet-'"
"I know we should have told Bella but NO you-"
"Oh wow you don't want to know this one-" ...then I wont listen.
"Why don't you just marry her...NO wait ignore that-" ...ok I will.
I blocked both Alice and Jasper out of my thoughts, they were going to give me a migraine- if that was possible-. I knew I had made a mistake agreeing to bring Penny with us to our home but I had no will power at all, Penny had control of me now. I had to tell Alice before she thought I didn't care about losing Bella.
We pulled into the house and Penny's jaw dropped, "This is were you live?" "No idiot we just pulled up here because we wanted to."
I gave a stern look at Alice.
"Oh so now you protect her Edward?Fine." Alice stormed into the house and slammed the door hard enough to make Penny jump.
"Uh...ignore her today." Jasper said sliding out of the car and following Alice.
"Step on in." I said opening the door for Penny.
"Oh now you hold her door too!" Alice screamed in her head. Let it go I was being polite. Penny almost touched my hand as she stepped inside, but I was quick enough to doge it.
Penny gaped and she turned in circles as she saw the staircase, the living room, and the dining room.
"Edward. OK sorry I didn't go to school but Rose and I picked up my dress and it fits great and we saw the DJ that will play at our party-" Bella ran down the stairs, she made it there in a flash, she froze when she saw Penny, looking scared, luckily Penny didn't notice Bella's quick appearance.
Penny turned and jumped in shock as she saw Bella standing beside me, "Oh B I didn't hear you step in the room." I hated the was she called Bella 'B'.
"Oh you didn't...I was here the whole time." Bella said in a shaky voice. "What is she doing here. Not that I'm not happy but Alice ans Rose don't really like her." Bella whispered low enough for Penny not to hear.
"We had a project that we didn't finish." I said calmly.
"Oh...great...Penny you hungry?" Bella said heading towards the kitchen.
"I don't mean to intrude I'm only just here until we can finish the paper it wont take long really." Penny said modestly, it sickened me.
" No problem what do you want?" Bella tilted her head.
"Uh spaghetti will be nice." Penny said walking toward Bella, "Please."
"No problem," Bella hurried towards the kitchen.
I showed Penny to the living room, "We should get started, I have some plans later." With Bella and Alice.
"OK." Penny said sitting on the sofa. "Do you have the book?"
"Its upstairs, I'll be right back." I said and swiftly got up. I made my way up the stairs slowly and entered the study room, I found Alice sitting on the computer investigating something, Jasper reading his old war diaries and Carlisle sitting at his desk with a handful of papers.
"Did she leave so soon?" Alice said in a fake sympathy voice.
"No," I said heading towards the wall of books and picking up the literature book, "I just came to get the book."
"Barely?" Alice said scornfully. Carlisle chuckled but covered it in a cough, and Jasper snickered.
I changed the subject, "What are you doing?"
"Trying to figure out what the hell is Penny."..."Nothing," ..."So she has a song or a hum that she gets you in a trace."
"Yeah. All right have to go." I said and made my way back down the stairs.
I sat across from Penny trying not to do anymore contact.
We finished in about twenty minutes. Fifty five questions that felt so long to me.
"Yay! We are done." Penny said packing her pencil and notebook back in her bag.
"Here you go Penny." Bella chime din holding a big plate of spaghetti.
"Oh this is too much Bella thank you, do you want to share?" Penny offered, Bella shook her head, I chuckled, kissed Bella on the lips and left upstairs.Carlisle and Jasper had left the room, so it was only Alice in the study. I walked in, "Did you find anything?" Please tell me you did.
"No. There is nothing that follows all those things Edward." Alice said slamming her head on the keyboard, I noticed she had books out too, mostly on witchcraft."She's not a witch Alice."
Alice scoffed, "Fooled me."
I rolled my eyes and sat down next to Alice, "Alice," Alice looked up, she heard the tone in my voice, worry, "It isn't those things anymore, now she lures me into her, I have no self control that is how she wound up in this house."
"Lures you?" Alice said in a spaced out voice. I nodded, "Maybe that is why she wanted to come, to test it, to see if she has an effect on you. She is winning Edward."
Emmett entered the room, he had a text book in his hand. "Wow Emmett is studying." I said in surprise.
"Shut up," He said, "Do you guys know anything about the Odyssey?"
"Odysseus and his travel back to Ithaca?" Alice asked.
"Yeah that." Emmett said scratching his head.
"Yeah I know that."
"So do I." I said.
"Help me out a stupid 9th grader tricked me into doing this for him. Anyway who is Scylla and Ca...ca...ca something?"
"They were the monsters who- give me the paper." Alice wrote down the answer.
"Cool...what about the sirens...who are they?"
I answered," They are half bird half women creatures that live on an island and lure men with their song and then eat...them..." I drifted and looked at Alice, her eyes had bulged out.
I pushed Emmett out of the room, "OK bye."
"Hey! Thanks." Emmett said on the other side of the door.
"I know." Alice googled the word: Odyssey, Sirens. A list of links to sites showed up. She clicked on the first icon that read, 'Odyssey Creatures: Sirens'. "Lures, eats, song." Alice whispered. After reading everything she could about sirens she slammed her hand on the desk looked at me with worry in her eyes, "She's a siren, Edward."
