Rating 5/5 Word Count 2042 Review this Chapter
While I was laying there trying to not wake up from my slumber, I felt someone laying there beside me. I flipped over on my other side and I saw the love of my life, my Edward. He was re-reading my favorite book “Wuthering Heights” with the lamp on my nightstand on. I cuddled up to his chest, closed my eyes, and pretended to snore.
“Good morning. Thank goodness Charlie isn’t home because your obnoxious snoring would wake him up,” whispered Edward as he kissed my forehead.
“You know, you could bring some of your stuff over here. I mean, if you’re desperate enough to read that book again, you must be pretty bored,” I said with only one eye open.
“Don’t worry about me. I was mostly just thinking about your little performance last night. Did I mention how sexy that was?” laughed Edward. “I have my own little rock star.” I suddenly had a flashback to last night, especially the part when Emmett mentioned DDR. And I did run, but I didn’t get as far as I would have liked. I actually only got to the front door before Emmett threw himself in front it. I gave up then because I knew that this was just one blockade I couldn’t get by. He told me it wouldn’t be hard and it’s not like I really have a choice. So for all I know, he could be out right now buying the game that will make me end up with a broken ankle. Suddenly, I remembered that Charlie told me today’s forecast; nice and sunny. With a smile on my face, I scrambled out of bed as fast I could and ran to the window. I threw open the curtains and the rays of the sun hit me right in the face.
“Ha! It’s sunny outside, Edward, and do you know what that means? That means that Emmett can’t go out and buy that game. I will remain alive for at least one more day!” I said happily.
Edward just chuckled and said, “Yes you are right. But you know when we go over today; he’ll just want to make you an expert at Rock Band, right?”
“Hey, I’ll take it. It just gives me more time to come up with a good excuse so I can miss this new torturous game,” I said, deeply in thought. Again, Edward just laughed but got up and said, “Well, let’s go!” I quickly got dressed, ate breakfast, and was on my way to Edward’s house. When I walked into the house, the first thing I saw was Emmett standing on the edge of the couch, singing Blitzkrieg Bop into the microphone. He was wearing a white tank top, a pair of black boxers with little red guitars, a red tie around his forehead and a cowboy hat. Edward and I just started laughing at the sight of him.
“What?” asked Emmett, innocently; like he had no idea why we were laughing at him.
“Um…have you seen yourself in the mirror? You look absolutely ridiculous,” I said, holding in my laughter as best as I could. I wondered where the rest of the Cullen’s were because it seemed weird that’d they would miss this.
“Now!” yelled Edward from behind me. And all of a sudden, the whole Cullen family popped out of their hiding places and started to take pictures of him. Then the next thing I know everything went dark. I heard Emmett shouting, “Give me back my pants! Guys, this isn’t funny!” I then realized that Edward put his hands over my eyes. I heard a crash, a yelp, and then silence. Edward removed his hand from my face and I saw that Emmett and Jasper were lying on the floor opposite of the toppled couch. I noticed that Emmett’s pants were on, thankfully, and all the Cullen’s were rolling around laughing.
“We got you, baby!” screeched Rosalie, while she was waving her camera around in the air.
“Wait a second; you had this planned all along?” Emmett questioned, as he pointed a finger at Edward.
“As a matter of fact, I did. I knew sooner or later you would do something like this. And we didn’t want to miss it; you could say that it was a Kodak moment.”
“That’s it, Eddie, you, me, and the Rock Band. You think you can beat me? Or are you too chicken?” teased Emmett, as he walked around in a circle flapping his “wings”.
“One, don’t call me Eddie. Two, I could take you in any instrument in this Rock Band. And three, bring it on!”
“Alright then, so here’s the deal. If I win, you have to be my slave for a week straight!” yelled Emmett. I do have to admit, that was pretty good.
“Alright, Emmett; but if win, you have to take this guitar, go to the food court of the mall, and sing “Boys” by Britney Spears. And you have to wear that with a tutu.” Now that was good.
“Alright Eddie, it’s a deal!”
And with that, the boys headed over to the couch and were arguing about who was going to sing first. I made my way over to the couch and sat between Alice and Rosalie.
“This is going to be good!” whispered Rosalie. The boys decided that they should play rock, paper, scissors to settle their argument. Emmett won two out of three, so he got to go first and pick the song.
“Um, guys, what’s going to happen if you both get the same score?” I asked, confused.
“Oh, I have an idea! Why don’t you pick a song you both know and sing it with your eyes closed! Trust me, there will only be one winner!” giggled Alice. So the boys picked “Are You Going to Be My Girl” by Jet and Esme ran upstairs to her room to grab a blindfold. When she came back with one, all the Cullen’s just sat there and looked at her.
“Why do you guy’s have a blindfold?” Emmett asked, with a face full of horror.
“Hello, Carlisle and I aren’t that old,” Esme said as she bent down to kiss Carlisle.
“Eww…” the Cullen’s exclaimed all at once. She took the blindfold and wrapped it around Emmett’s head. Alice chose the expert level for him and started the song. As soon as the song started, he was dancing all around. Quickly, Esme got up and took down all the valuable’s in the room and put them in the kitchen. He started singing the song and as I watched the screen, he wasn’t even missing a beat. He even personalized the song by changing some of the words.
Big black boots,
Long blonde hair,
She's so sweet
With her get back stare.
Well I could see,
You home with me,
But you were with another man, yea!
I know we,
Ain't got much to say,
Before I let you get away, yea!
I said, are you gonna be my girl, Rosalie?
It was actually kind of funny, even Rosalie was laughing. But as the song continued, he got so excited that he was shouting into the microphone. Which made his performance go from perfect to average; the arrow was flying all over the place. I think that Edward noticed that too because when Emmett was spinning around in circles by Edward’s side of the couch, Edward stuck his foot out and tripped him. It looked like it happened in slow motion; Emmett went flying in the direction of the wall and he ripped the microphone out of the game system. When he finally landed, his whole upper body was inside the wall with just his legs flailing around in the room. And all at once, the whole family fell to the floor laughing.
When I was gasping for air, I noticed the song was still going and his audience was booing him. His meter went from being green and perfect to poor and red. When the song finished and the accuracy came up on the screen, it said it was a 70%. That just made us laugh even harder.
Emmett finally wiggled loose from the wall and gave all us all an even look, especially Edward.
“What? It’s not my fault that you tripped over my foot,” Edward said, getting up and taking the microphone. Alice ripped the blindfold off of Emmett’s head and tied it onto Edward. She took the controller and played the same song over again.
It was kind of funny to hear Edward sing. His voice is so nice and has great tone quality. It made me want to close my eyes and just sway along with the sound. But it was strange because this beautiful, sweet voice was singing a rock song. It was obvious that every one was feeling the same way because when I looked around, Alice, Rosalie and Esme had their cell phones open and in the air. They were swaying with the music and it made sense for them to use cell phones instead of lighters. Lighters and Vampires don’t mix very well.
“Hey Bella, are you catching any flies over there?” chuckled Emmett. I just realized that my mouth was wide open and I didn’t even know it. I was watching the screen and Edward would hit each note perfectly; the crowd was going wild. Emmett was looking for some payback because he stood up and chucked a pillow at him. Edward dodged the pillow just in the nick of time. He finished the last note and we all stood up and applauded him.
He took his blind fold off, gave a bow, and came over and kissed me. I truly felt like I was dating a rock star. When his accuracy came up, it was 100%. While we all complimented him on his singing, Emmett was laying on the floor having a temper tantrum.
“It’s not fair!” was all he said before Rosalie threw a pillow at him. “Looks like you lost the bet, dear brother. Maybe this will finally teach you a lesson,” said Edward. He picked me up bridal style and he took me up to his room.
I had my human moment and when I came back, he was spread out on the bed with his hands behind his head.
“How can you do it?” I asked.
“Be a rock star, a god, AND a great boyfriend all at once?” I teased.
“Well I’m going to be honest, it’s pretty hard. You know, with the traveling, the togas, and my hot girlfriend…”laughed Edward. “
Hot girlfriend…where is she?” I said, looking around the room. I walked over to the bed and he gathered me into his arms. I laid my head on his chest and sighed.
“Your voice is amazing. Is there anything that you’re not good at?”
“Silly, Bella. I don’t think I’m the only one who got a 100% accuracy. Plus I was singing a rock song, for crying out loud. All I was basically doing was saying words. Will you promise me something?”
“Anything,” I said, maybe regretting my answer.
“When Emmett gets the Karaoke Revolution game, will you do a duet with me?” I was suddenly regretting my answer.
“Wait a second; I thought the next game was DDR?”
“Oh it is, but the Karaoke game will be next. So what do you say?” I started to snore softly to see if I could fool him.
“Bella, I’ve watched you sleep since the first time I met you. Do you honestly think I wouldn’t know if you were faking?”
“Okay, good point. Let’s see if I live past DDR first, then I’ll let you know about the duet,” I sighed.
“If you honestly think I have worked this hard to keep you alive that I would let you die over a stupid video game, you’re crazy.” I could almost hear his eyes rolling. At this, I had to giggle; I just hope he’s right.
“Go to sleep love; you don’t want to miss tomorrow.”
“What’s happening tomorrow?” I asked, confused.
“Emmett’s going to do his part of the bet.” I closed me eyes as he sang me my lullaby with a big grin on my face. I couldn’t wait to see that!
