Tonight was sure to be interesting. At least that was what I was telling myself as I looked in the mirror.

This was sure to be a disaster. Alice had me in a blue halter dress that came down to my knees. She also had –thankfully by me- put me in blue flats with a lace design on them so that I could dance better. She was now doing my hair.

The boys had already left and we were to take Rosalie’s car. We were left at the house to get ready. Alice and Rosalie were already done. Alice had on a black tube top dress that came down into triangular patterns with pink ribbon around the waist that led to the bottom of the dress. Rosalie had on a stunning red halter top with a black lace overlay. As Alice finished my hair Rosalie walked into the room.

“Are you done yet? We seriously need to leave now.” Alice then threw a hairspray can at her but Rosalie dodged it with a smile and then left the room. Alice then turned the chair I was sitting on and motioned for me to stand up.

“Well the shoes aren’t the best choice but it’s not that bad.” She smiled and then we left to go to the restaurant. I didn’t really see the point of going out on a school night but Alice kept assuring me that every thing would be fine.

As we pulled into the parking lot my stomach became filled with butterflies. I was going to have to dance with Edward. This was going to be embarrassing to the point of no return. I got out of the car and started to walk forward. The restaurant was adorned with neon lights that resembled musical instruments and music notes. As we got closer to the doors you could here live music coming from inside.

When the door opened the first thing you saw was a mass of people dancing in the middle of the floor. To the sides of the dance floor was tables. As I looked around Alice grabbed my arm and started pulling me to the back towards a table that I had just realized Edward, Emmett, and Jasper were sitting at. Alice sat down next to Jasper and Rosalie next to Jasper leaving me to sit right next to Edward.

As I sat down Edward laughed and as I look up I noticed Emmett bobbing his head and trying to sing along with the song and couldn’t help but laugh along. As Emmett stopped to look at us with a glare a waitress came over and set down a large pizza down with a large jug of Coke and six glasses.

As she walked away Emmett watched her. When Rosalie noticed she smacked him on the side of the head as we all laughed. As we ate the conversation was filled with talk of school and how to properly eat a piece of pizza. I of course was dragged into that one when I laughed at Emmett for folding his pizza in half and then eating it. J

asper and Alice were the first to leave for the dance floor and were then followed by Rosalie and Emmett. As I took another sip of my drink Edward got up and then held his hand out towards me.

“Would you like to dance?” I looked up to see his crooked smile and hazily nodded my head yes and followed him to the dance floor. As we got there I looked at him with a worried look. When he saw that look he tilted his head to the side.

“What’s wrong?” I looked down at my feet and then back to him.

“I can’t dance.” He laughed at me and then shook his head.

“Don’t worry its all in the leading.” As he gave me a mile I felt helpless and fallowed him and soon we were dancing. I felt graceful and soon found myself dancing with no reason to other that I was with Edward, dancing, and actually not falling down.

The night continued like that for a long time until it was time to go home. When we got their all of them started to complain of hurting stomachs and a nauseous feeling. As I got ready for bed and started to dose off I felt a familiar presence and opened my eyes only to see nothing and then went back to sleep.

I woke up to Carlisle knocking on my door.

“Come in!” Carlisle then opened the door and stood in the door way.

“All of the other children are sick today Bella and will not be attending school. Would you like to go or stay home?” I scratched my head and then shook my head.

“I’ll go.” He then nodded his head and left out the door. I then got ready and went to school.

As I drove my head was filled with last nights memories of fun and as I pulled into the school parking lot I wondered what today would be filled with.
