DDR with the Cullen’s
I felt myself start to waken from my sleep, but I didn’t want to get up yet. So instead I just thought about what happened last night. I have heard some where that if you laugh enough, that your abs will get more defined. If that is the case, then the Cullen’s and I all have 12 packs…if they didn’t already before. The news station really did show the whole clip of Emmett singing in the mall and Emmett just sat there with his mouth wide open. I didn’t really get to see it again; I was rolling around on the ground with everyone laughing hysterically. I could feel my face turn bright red while the tears were streaming down my face.
I probably will never get used to looking around at the Cullen’s and seeing them cry but seeing no tears strolling down their faces. As soon as the broadcast ended, Emmett stood up and ran upstairs which caused us to laugh even harder. Just reviewing that memory inside my head made me start laughing uncontrollably.
“Jeez Bella, you scared me. What are you laughing at?” asked Edward, confused.
“Sorry, I just can’t help but laugh every time I think about what happened yesterday,” I said, holding my stomach. “I laughed so much yesterday that it hurts to laugh…Ow!”
“I don’t like to brag but if I do say myself, my bet is going to be pretty hard to top,” laughed Edward as he put his arms around me and crushed me into his chest.
“Yes it will; Unluckily for Emmett, he will have to live this down for the rest of his unnatural long life,” I said as I cuddled up into him. Bang! I practically jumped off the bed screaming; it felt like my heart fell out of my body. When I looked up at the source of the noise, I saw my door smashed against the wall and Emmett standing over us with a big smile. I didn’t know what was happening, but if Emmett was involved; it was bad.
“Good morning!” he yelled, thank goodness Charlie was out fishing this morning.
“What the hell do you think you’re doing?” asked Edward, as he held me and tried to calm me down.
“If you broke my door…” I said, with a menacing glare.
“Oh c’mon, your door is fine. But forget the door, get up and let’s go!” said Emmett, as he grabbed the mattress and pulled it off the bed. Thankfully Edward caught me before I fell between the wooden posts and hit the floor. Edward stood up, pushed me behind him and let out a menacing growl.
“Woah…calm down brother! Chill.”
“Emmett, for the millionth time, Bella is human! Can you at least try and remember that!”
“Yeah, yeah, whatever; Anyways, we got to go, the rest are waiting for us at the house.”
“Why, what’s wrong?” worried Edward.
“The volturi?” I asked.
“More vampires?” asked Edward.
“Is Charlie okay?”
“DDR,” was all Emmett said.
“Oh okay…wait, DDR? You mean to tell me you came in here, scared Bella to death and destroyed Bella’s room all for a stupid game?” growled Edward.
“Well actually, Eddie, it’s not just a game; it’s Dance Dance Revolution! Bella, hurry up. I’ve been itching to play but we decided to wait for you guys.” Emmett put the mattress back on the bed and made him self comfortable as he sprawled across it. With his head propped up by his shoulder, he winked at me. I groaned, took my clothes and headed to the bathroom.
As I took a shower I thought about writing a will before I left. Just in case this experience goes as how I saw it in my head, me ending up with a cracked skull or a broken spine. I really didn’t have anything valuable; I’d leave my truck to Jacob so he could fix it up. My CD collection would go to Edward, my clothes to Alice so she could enjoy burning them…
“Bella, Emmett is getting very impatient. I had to stop him from looking through your drawers,” said a smooth voice from outside my bathroom. As soon as I heard that, I hopped out of the shower and got dressed in record time. We got into Edward’s car and headed for the Cullen’s mansion. When I walked through the front door, I looked over and I thought I was going to burst out into fits of laughter.
The whole Cullen family was sitting around the coffee table, and on that table sat what I guessed was the DDR game system. The way they stared at it with such adoration, like it was a million dollars. I realized when they all looked at me with puzzled faces that I interrupted their moment with my laughter.
“I’m sorry, but your all looking at it likes it’s god in box form.”
“It pretty much is Bella; what you see right now is perfection. And we’re the first ones to get it!” Emmett said, proudly. “Let’s do this!” He ran to the box and ripped it open with out even trying. Alice took the disc and put it in the play station while Emmett took the wireless dance pads and connected them to the consol. In less than thirty seconds, the main menu came up and they chose 2 players, Alice versus Emmett. The thing that got me was that they chose expert even though they’ve never played before!
They picked the song “Funkytown” and as soon as they chose it, the song started and all these arrows came flying down the screen. I watched Emmett’s’ and Alice’s’ feet as they danced and all I could see was fast moving blurs. When I finally tore my eyes from their feet to watch the screen, I noticed that it kept saying perfect. I was baffled when I realized that they somehow managed to be hitting every arrow without missing a beat. And every time they would receive a perfect, nothing less.
“You understand that if I try to do that, I will probably do more damage to myself than what happened to me with James, right?”
“Bella…do you honestly think I am going to let a stupid game hurt you? Besides, there are easier levels.”
“I hope your right,” I said as I cringed at the image of me trying to play this game on expert. Edward laughed as he wrapped his arms around me and pulled me closer to him.
Won't you take me to
Won't you take me to
Won't you take me to
Won't you take me to
When the song finally ended, the scored came up. Emmett got a 100% perfect while Alice only got a 98% perfect; which meant that Emmett was the winner.
“Ha! I beat you Alice! My first time and I won!” yelled Emmett as he danced around Alice with a big grin on his face. I could tell that this wasn’t going to be good. Alice just rolled her eyes and skipped back to the couch to sit next to Jasper. The next to go was Esme and Carlisle; they chose to dance to “Against All Odds” and they too chose expert. When the song started and the arrows started to scroll down the screen, everyone started laughing. It was funny to watch them dance that fast to a slow and romantic song. Surprisingly, they were actually pretty good too. Esme won that one and they decided that it was Jasper and Edwards turn to go next.
Edward kissed my forehead as he and Jasper started up to the dance mat. They picked their song and their difficulty so fast they none of us got to see what they were doing. We all looked at each other confused until we heard the familiar beat to “Play That Funky Music.” Everyone burst out laughing, even Edward and Jasper. Edward turned around and winked at me as he rolled up his sleeves. Jasper reached in his pocket and pulled out two pairs of aviator sun glasses, handed one to Edward, and put them on. Jasper was grooving to the beat as he shook his hips while Edward was nodding his head.
Yeah, once I was a boogie singer
Playing in a rock & roll band
I never had no problems, yeah Burning down the one night stands
And everything around me, yeah Got to start to feeling so low
And I decided quickly [yes, I did] To disco down and check out the show
By this time, the whole Cullen family was up dancing and singing the song. I didn’t know I knew all the words but apparently I did. I was dancing with Alice and we all were singing and laughing at the same time. I noticed in the corner Esme was taking pictures until Carlisle grabbed her and started dancing with her. I looked up at Edward and saw him not only singing, but also dancing at a really quick speed. What I would do for that kind of coordination. He looked so happy; he was smiling and every now and then, he and Jasper would give each other high fives. Right before the chorus kicked in, they both jumped and switched dance pads. Now Edward was on the right and Jasper was on the left. Not only that, but Emmett retrieved the Rock Band microphone and was dancing in between them singing:
Yeah, they were dancing and singing
And moving to the groovin’
And just when it hit me Somebody turned around and shouted
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down that boogie and play that funky music till you die…
The song finally ended and it announced that it was a tie; they both received 100% perfect. They turned around and bowed to us while we gave them a round of applause; I was pretty sure I heard some cat calls mixed in with it. They started laughing and turned and gave each other high fives. I ran up to Edward as he grabbed me up into a hug.
“That was great! I love you so much!” I said, laughing. Edward started laughing and kissed me on my forehead.
“Nice glasses,” I laughed. He reached up, took them off and put them on me. I posed with my hands on my hips and said,
“How do I look?” He grabbed me around the waist and kissed me on my lips.
“Pretty sexy, if you ask me. We will definitely have to keep these,” he said with a smile. Unfortunately, we were interrupted by the voice and the dreaded words I feared the most at the moment…
“Ohhhh, Bella! It’s your turn!” Emmett sang. Here we go. I looked up at a smiling Edward and said,
“Tell my parents I love them.” Edward rolled his eyes as he picked me up and placed me on the center of the dance mat. I looked next to me and saw that Rosalie was going against me; great.
“What song do you want?” she asked.
“Um…what about “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun?” Rosalie chose the song and set her difficulty to expert. I looked at Edward and I scrolled up to beginner. I could hear a few snickers behind me and heard, “I hope she doesn’t break her neck.” I turned around and saw that Emmett was the one whispering and laughing at me. “Hold on,” I said to Rosalie.
“Excuse me, is there a problem here?” I asked, looking right at Emmett.
“Bella, c’mon! You have to admit that this is going to be funny. Carlisle even brought his bag and its hiding underneath the kitchen table!” laughed Emmett.
“Alright then, well I think it’s time for a bet, don’t you?” I asked.
“Hell yeah! What do you have in mind?”
“I’m going to keep it simple. If I can get through this whole song without falling or receiving any huge injuries, I get to choose your next song and difficulty and what you have to wear while doing it.”
“What happens when you get hurt and I win, because that’s the only one that’s relevant to this bet…” smiled Emmett.
“If I win, we will have what we can call a “Bella and Emmett day!” Where I get you for one whole day and we can play as many games as I want with no complaints!” Damn, that was a good one. I didn’t want to give him the satisfaction of knowing that I was scared I was going to lose, so I agreed. Rosalie started the song and her arrows came immediately and fast while mine came really slow.
I come home in the morning light,
My mother says "When you gonna live your life right?"
We're not the fortunate ones,
They wanna have fu-un.
Just wanna have fun .
I kept thinking to myself, “You can do this Bella, just follow the arrows.” It actually wasn’t as bad as I thought. I was good at keeping the rhythm so the only thing I needed to worry about was hitting the right arrows. I didn’t hit perfect all the time, and I did mess up a few times too. But the bet was about me getting hurt, not about accuracy. It was kind of distracting to see Rosalie next to me because she was dancing twice as fast as I was. And what distracted me even more was that Emmett grabbed the microphone again and was between us singing the song.
The phone rings in the middle of the night,
My father yells "What you gonna do with your life?"
You know you're still number one,
They wanna have fu-un,
Oh,girls,just wanna have
That's all they really want.....
When the working day is done,
They wanna have fu-un,
Just wanna have fun....
Wanna have fun.
Finally the song ended and I jumped around, pointed at Emmett and yelled,
“Ha! I won! I didn’t get hurt, I didn’t fall, and I didn’t even stumble!” Emmett was standing next to Rosalie with a sad puppy dog look on his face.
“Alright, Alright! You win! I’m actually kind of proud of you, sister. Give me a hug!” Before I could run, Emmett came up and gave me a bone crushing hug.
“What’s my song and what am I wearing?”
“Dear Emmett, you haven’t given me enough time to put together your outfit! We will just have to wait until tomorrow.”
“What are you talking about…a costume?”
“Yes. Oh by the way, your dancing to Oops I did it again by Britney Spears. You might want to do some extra sit ups so you can fit into your outfit. I hope you like leather!” I said smiling, as Edward picked me up and drove me home. Outside the house, I could hear all the booming laughter.
I was sitting on my bed, snuggled up to Edward’s chest. We were talking about the latest Cullen event.
“I can’t believe that you’re going to make Emmett dance to Britney Spears!” laughed Edward. He still couldn’t get over the fact that I came up with that.
“I know…I have to go shopping with Alice tomorrow so we can pick out the perfect outfit. In the video, she’s wearing red leather.”
“I’ve heard red is a slimming color!” said Edward as we both started to laugh.
“You were great today,” said Edward, as he grabbed my cheek and looked deep into my eyes.
“Me? I never knew you had that in you! Those glasses looked sexy on you. Why didn’t I think to buy you those before?” I said, as I laughed. He leaned over and kissed me for a little bit. Of course he had to pull away when I started to take advantage of the moment.
“Bed time for the human,” whispered Edward.
“Good. I’m going to need plenty of rest for tomorrow,” I laughed. He kissed me once more and let me slip into a deep slumber.
