~Edwards pov~

Bella was getting a feel for her new room while I discussed what had happened today. As I explained it they did not speak but only listened and I also tensed when the anger was brought back.

The truth of the matter was that while Bella was looking for books I had smelled another vampire. The smell was everywhere, making it hard to track down where it was when I had finally heard it. I then listened to its thoughts. In his head I could see Bella and I could also see that he was in hunting mode.

I went to save Bella, and when the other vampire saw me I could see the fear in his eyes but yet he had a curiosity due to the fact that while normal vampires had red eyes mine where a golden color now on there way fading to black. Speaking about it had brought my anger back. If Bella hadn’t been there I would have killed that filthy mongrel.

By the end of my speech Esme got up and made her way over to me and put her hands on my shoulders I slowly backed away from her touch as not to hurt her but the hurt was still evident in her eyes. I did not like physical contact and she knew that. She nodded slowly and then took one step back.

“I think I’ll go talk to her. The poor dear must be very frightened.” She then turned and walked to the room. I then turned my head towards Carlisle.

“There is something else Carlisle, in his thoughts he new others, others that would find interest in this. We need to take extra precautions around her. I personally am having some difficulties being around her still and I know you are too Jasper.” Jasper looked at me with a grave frown and then gave a brief nod and then looked away. Carlisle then looked around at all of us.

“Well until they come I see no reason to worry. We must not worry her Edward if your having problems just hold your breath if you really must leave then go, you can if you need to as well Jasper.” Jasper and I quickly shook our heads and then listened into the conversation Esme was having with Bella.

“How are you doing Bella?”

“A little shocked but I’ll be fine. Esme...”

“Yes dear?”

“How much more did Alice spend on clothes?”

Alice then gave a small giggle while Jaspers thoughts where confused. ‘Edward she’s hiding something. I don’t think that’s not the question she was going to ask. She’s frightened and very worried. But that’s not what confuses me... I think she has a crush... on you.’ He smiled and then let out a small laugh, just as he did that Alice slapped him on the shoulder. “I’ll tell you later.” She then looked ahead tosee what it was. Her mouth then fell open and she tried to hold back a small giggle.

Carlisle, Emmet and Rosalie then looked at us with a questioning look as Alice opened her mouth to speak.

“It would seem as though our little Bella has a little crush on Edward.” I could tell Esme heard from the other room when she giggled. The giggle was soft and most likely not audible to Bella’s human ears. As Emmet let out a roar of laughter Bella and Esme walked into the room. Bella cocked her head to the side with a questioning look.

I then listened to Esme’s thoughts. Oh dear, how odd this must be for you. Well at least she likes you. She then smiled. I then cornered on Emmet’s thoughts. Edward, you dog you! Don’t do anything too bad. I then glared at him. Then Alice took a step forward and spoke.

“So, Bella how did you like your clothes?” Alice then skipped over to Bella before she could say anything. “Let’s go find you something nice to wear.” Bella then looked at her with a questioning look and I took a look inside Alice’s head to see what she was planning.

She was planning on going out to dance tonight and she was going to drag me and Bella along. I could tell this would not be good. Over the little time I had known Bella I knew she was not that graceful.


~Bella’s pov~

Alice had dragged me back to my room after I had found Emmet busting out in laughter and everybody giggling at my entrance but why I had no idea. As she started to go to the closet she spoke to me.

“Bella, Rosalie, Emmet, Jasper, Edward, and I are going dancing tonight while we eat supper at this super cool restaurant and we would like you to come with us to give Esme and Carlisle some privacy. So I’m going to help you pick out an outfit for tonight.” I choked out a whimper and new there was no stopping this. I had no grace what so ever but I guess I could sacrifice my pride for Esme and Carlisle.

“And Alice, who exactly would I be dancing with?” She then looked at me giggled, and then turned back to my closet sifting through things.

“Well, all of us really, but mostly just Edward.” She looked back at me as my mouth dropped and let out an eruption of laughter.

Tonight was sure to be interesting.
