Turns out my jaw wasn’t broken, just bruised. Alice bought me a diamond necklace to apologise, Man…I should let her hit me more often. It was a Wednesday night and I was downstairs watching Family guy with Emmy. The big goof, he laughed at everything and anything. This episode was the one where Brian got weird ‘Urges’. It was just about to begin when someone stood in front of me. I looked up to see Carlisle’s face, he looked at bit angry, but he was staring at Emmett.
“Umm…Car- Dad…I hate to break it to you, but you’re blocking the T.V.” I said grinning. He frowned down at me. He didn’t even smile at my joke. “What’s got your knickers in a twist?” I asked, confused. He turned to Emmett.
“Don’t you think Ellie’s a little young,” He put a load of emphasis on the word ‘young’, I scowled. “To be watching this episode of Family Guy?” He asked Emmett, who looked as baffled as I felt.
“Why? What’s wrong with it?” Emmett asked his father figure. I suddenly grasped what Carlisle was trying to say, and burst out laughing. Emmett turned to me his face questioning.
“He’s upset because of the sexual nature, of this episode.” I gasped out. Carlisle frowned down at me.
“This isn’t funny, Emmett should know better than to let you watch these kinds of thing. Your not a-“ I cut him off.
“Please! I’ve watched far worse than this!” I exclaimed, before I realized my words. “Whoops…” He narrowed his eyes down at me.
“Whoops indeed.” He said angrily. This was probably the first time he’d ever been mad at me. However indirectly it was me his anger was pinpointed at. “That’s it. Everyone, dinning room now!” He said at normal volume, he took my hand and dragged me into the large dinning room with the oval table. I didn’t know why they had it before I turned up; maybe they got frequent guests…?
“Not quite.” Edward said from behind me, as Carlisle pushed me, non to gently, down into the seat on the right of the head one. “It’s just for show. And plus Alice thought it would look cute.” We did our synchronized eye roll. I grinned as he pulled Bella and sat down beside me. Alice and Jasper came in next Alice sitting across from me on the left of the head chair, where Carlisle sat. Jasper sat opposite Edward next to Alice (of course). Emmett sat down next to Jazz, and Rose sat opposite him next Bella, while Esme took the head seat on the other end of the table.
“What did I think looked cute?” Alice asked.
“The table.” I replied simply, she grinned. “Carlisle why are we here?” I asked, as Rose got up fluidly and went into the kitchen; I wondered why …What could possibly hold her interest in THERE…?
“Were here because, me and Esme have something to tell you all.” He said looking down. Since when was Carlisle ever unsure…?
Esme shook her head from the opposite end of the table. “Nu uh. No way. This was YOUR Idea. Deal.” She said grinning, one eyebrow up. Alice and Edward simultaneously groaned.
“Okay, since I don’t have any parlour tricks instead of The Elements,” I began glaring at the four of them who knew what was going on. “Could someone please explain before I lightning bolt your arses?” I asked. Edward snorted. “What?” I asked, baffled once more.
“Again with the arses. What is it with you and arses?” He asked laughing.
“OI! I don’t make fun of you and your accent. Leave mine alone. And you happen to speak English. So it is ARSES not ASSES.” I said narrowing my eyes at him. Thunder rolled outside, and a lightning bolt struck the house particularly close to the window.
“Ellie! Edward! Stop it!” Carlisle said, looking up.
“Sorry Carlisle…” Edward and I said at the same time. Rose came back in, her hair was slightly unpinned from the bun it had been in before, what was she doing…?
“Look…Kids…You’re going back to Forks High School.” Jasper’s eyes widened, Emmett smacked his head on the table, I though I saw a dent come out. Rose visibly slumped in her seat along with Bella, and Esme had a pained expression on her face. Edward and Alice just glared at Carlisle. I started to laugh. The Cullen “children” all turned to me and gave me death glares.
“Sheesh, if looks could kill…” I said giggling.
“I don’t know why you’re laughing about. You’re going too.” Carlisle said, carefully.
“Ha-ha that’s a good one Carlisle.” I laughed.
“I’m serious Ellie…” Carlisle said hanging his head, waiting for the sure onslaught from me.
“WHAT???” I asked outraged. “School? Are you insane? Has all that animal blood gone to your head? School???” Emmett smirked. A lightning bolt smashed down by the window behind his head. His grin dropped immediately.
“No…I’m perfectly in my right mind…” Carlisle looked up, his eyes pleading. I calmed down. I shot a look to Jasper. He shrugged sheepishly. “Sorry.” I mouthed.
“You sure Dad? You sure you’re okay? Because you’re talking some nonsense about me going to school.” I said, did he actually even think I could go to school? Okay, so the truth was, I was happy. School would be fun…But there was one thing I just didn’t like being. The new kid. Edward snorted, I stamped on his foot.
“Come on Ellie it could be fun…” Carlisle said his voice had a pleading edge, as he tried to persuade me.
“Do we have to?” Emmett asked, despair evident in his voice. Seems they hated school as much as I did.
“Yes. And you’re ALL going.” Carlisle said turning to me.
“Okay, Okay…I’ll go…” I said. He visibly relaxed, for one little girl like me to cause him so much stress… It was quite funny actually. I started laughing, everyone turned to me as Rose got up again and walked into the kitchen. “Uhhh…Nothing.” I said giggling as Edward barely contained laughter. I’d have him on anti depressants if I wasn’t careful, I thought. That did it for Edward; he started laughing long and hard.
“Are you all going to tell us the joke?” Emmett asked miffed. He hated it when he couldn’t figure out a joke.
“Oh no…I was just worrying about Carlisle’s mental health, if I put so much stress on him over something so small. Can Vampire’s get hooked on anti depressants?” I asked. They all started laughing. If Carlisle could have blushed he would have been as red as a beetroot dipped in a boiling vat of chilli sauce.
“I think someone’s been hanging around Jasper and his southern similes a bit too much.” Edward noted, after he had caught his breath. Jasper snorted, it was true though, his similes WERE catchy. Rose came back in with a tray of something steaming. I wondered doubtfully if she was a witch of some sort… She set it down in front of me. I sniffed it. It smelled like chicken curry…
“I made it myself!” Rose said proudly standing behind me. She smiled in encouragement. I glanced around the table to make sure it was safe. Alice nodded almost unnoticeable.
I picked up the fork hesitantly and popped in some rice and chicken. I made a show of chewing it 114 times, all the while Rose looked like she was about to topple over with anticipation.
“Well??? Well??? WELL???” She asked her voice rising to a scream by the end.
“Hmmm…It’s a bit Bland…” I said faking, indifference. I turned back to her, as her face fell.
“Oh…” Was all she said, as she turned to sit back in her seat.
“Rose, you over sensitive beauty queen. It’s LOVELY.” I said laughing. She whipped around grinning. “I can’t believe you learned to cook for me!” I exclaimed.
She coughed and rubbed the back of her neck, looking down at the floor. “Well…Actually…It came out of a box; I just put it in the microwave…” She said lifting her head and smiling sheepishly down at me.
I laughed. “It’s a start. A start…” I said turning back to the food, and popping, no shovelling, the food in. Alice watched me as I ate; she had an awed expression on her face when I finished in less than 5 minutes flat.
“Hey, I haven’t eaten since…2 hours ago.” I said grinning.
“Because THAT’S the excuse of the century…” She muttered shaking her head. “Well...Since were going to school…You know what that means…”
“SHOPPING!” Alice and Rose said together. I burst out laughing.
“You guy's remind me of that one film…What’s it called again? Oh yeah. White Chicks.” I grinned.
Oh dear sweet mother of God…
