Olivia's POV

"Wait!" I said suddenly remembering something. "What?" Alice demanded. "I'm not dressed to perform!" I said wryly. "Oh, I see." Alice said. "Let's go shopping!!!" we laughed and headed out to the mall.

Bella's POV

Edward and I finally unpacked all of our things, so we headed downstairs. Alice and Olivia were laughing and heading for the door. "Where are you going?" Edward asked the two giggling Vampires. "Shopping!!" Alice declared. "You wanna come?" Olivia asked me. "Ummm," Edward nodded in encouragement. "Alright." "Besides, I wasn't done shopping when we had to leave." Alice added. "I'm so sorry." Olivia said bowing her head in mock apology. "I didn't know you were on a shopping trip. I would have never interuppted." Alice laughed and said "I forgive you. Now let's see if Columbus has any better shopping than Forks." and with that we headed out the door.

As we pulled into the parking lot to the local mall, Alice and Olivia began their 'hunt'. "Where to first?" Olivia said as we entered the mall. "How about here?" Alice suggested, motioning to a huge store filled with name brand clothes.

We shopped for hours, Alice was either skimming the clothing racks, or pushing me into dressing rooms throwing an endless amount of clothes in after me. Olivia could apparently fend for herself, she appeared to be a major shopper as well.

When the store finally closed, Alice and Olivia were forced to leave with their sixteen bags of clothes. I was secretly gleeful as we finally shoved the last bag of clothes in the trunk.

We finally arrived back at Esme's gorgeous home, and Alice and Olivia raced upstairs giggling about their fine shopping trip. I was about to head upstairs to tell Edward he had a crazy sister, but he was suddenly there. "Welcome back." he said chuckling at my exausted face. "You know, most girls love shopping." he said. I made a face. "Most girls don't have Alice as a shopping guide." I reminded him. He chuckled lightly.

"Ahem." Alice said appearing at the top of the stairs. " I would like to introduce the singing and dancing sensation: Liv Gwen!!!!"

Olivia's POV

I stepped out of the bedroom and to Alice's side, carrying my guitar. I had picked out a long pink and black striped shirt with black leggings to wear. My hair up in a high messy ponytail. I grinned. I raced down the stairs at in human speed and into the family room. Edward and Bella followed. Alice was at my side, and to my embarrassment, Carlisle and Esme came as well. Alice smiled wider. "Take it away!" she said grinning. They all sat on the couches and waited for me to begin. I took a deep breath, that wasnt' really necessary, and I strummed a chord. I began on my favorite song, of course from the 80's, and Bella's jaw dropped as I began to sing. The rest of their reactions were similar, but not as extreme. I almost laughed, I loved using my abilities.

Bella's POV

My jaw dropped. I stared at this gorgeous young vampire with extreme envy. When she finished her first song, Jasper and Emmett entered the room. "Party in the house!!" Emmett said seeing our little 'concert'. Olivia laughed. "Rosalie would come down to watch, but she's taking a shower." he explained. But I knew the real reason she didn't want to come down: she was jealous. Just like I was. I couldn't blame her. Olivia began again. She began to strum the guitar so quickly and expertly that her fingers were just a blur to my eyes.

I turned to Edward, who was smiling and watching Olivia approvingly. Oh no. I suddenly thought. If she was so appealing, and so single, I worried what Edward thought about her.

Edward's POV

We spent the rest of the night laughing and joking and watching Olivia sing and dance. She was quite good, and I marveled at her ability. Not her 'siren' ability, but her ability to still be happy and optomistic when the love of her life and her twin brother were dead, and when an insane vampire was after her. She apparently never grew out of her sixteen year old optomism level. But despite all this, I did not have any feelings for her above maybe the little sister level. True, she was gorgeous, cute and talented, but I had the love of my life sitting next to me, and Bella was all I could ever ask for.

Bella finally fell asleep and I took her up to the bedroom so she could sleep in peace.

When I returned downstairs, Alice was frozen, and all eyes were on her. She must be having a vision! I thought, and without thought, I entered her mind and shared the vision.
