~Bella’s pov~

When I woke up again I was greeted by Alice right in my face. I jumped and accidentally hit her face. I heard my hand crack and yelped out in pain. Everybody came in to see what was wrong except for the one person I was hoping to see this morning.

“What happened in here?” Esme asked looking a little worried. Alice then popped up.

“Well you see I was waiting for Bella to wake up.” Emmet snickered but Alice continued. “Well any ways I was a little to close; when she woke up she was startled and hit me in the face. Although I think her hand felt more of the damage. I think you should check it Carlisle!” She then went over to Carlisle and tried to pull him over.

“Whoa, hold on Alice. I have to get my bag first.” She then let go and he went upstairs while Esme went in the kitchen. Luckily Carlisle was a doctor here in the small town of Forks at their Hospital. Esme came back first with an ice pack.

“Oh dear, its swollen, here put this ice pack on it.” I did as she said and then Carlisle came down with a doctor’s bag. He sat down beside me and examined my hand.

“It’s probably just a small sprain. We can put an ace bandage on it for a week and then go from their.” He then got up but stopped and looked at Alice. “And no more downstairs sleepovers for Alice.” She pouted and Carlisle left. I also noticed that Emmet looked like he was about to start to cry from holding back laughter.

“Its o.k. Emmet, You can laugh.” He then let out a burst of laughter that echoed through the house. I also noticed that Jasper was snickering and Rosalie had cracked a smile not caring that she was not the center of attention at this second.

Then Edward walked into the room.

“What are we all laughing for?” He said this with a smile looking at me. Every one then seemed to notice him.

“EDWARD!!! You’re home!!!” Alice screamed and ran up to him jumping up and down. She then ran to Esme.

“Edwards home!” Esme smiled and put her hand down on Alice’s shoulder to stop her jumping.

“I know Alice. I can see that for my self.” Esme then went over to Edward and gave him a hug. “Its nice to finally have you back home. I'm very happy now.” He then smiled at her.

“I am too.” She then got a look of anger on her face and he smiled sheepishly.

“You’ve got some explaining to do! Come on. We’ll go upstairs and me, you, and your father can talk.” They then went up stairs. Fallowing behind them where Rosalie, Emmet, and Jasper. Alice stayed with me.

“So, you hungry?” Alice asked me with a smile. I nodded and we headed off into the kitchen. When we had our food and where sat down I decided to interrogate Alice.

“Hay Alice, can I ask you a few questions?” She then turned to me and smiled.


“Well, you see, I woke up last night and you weren’t there.” She nodded her head. “I looked around every where, but you weren’t there and Edward was. He was watching me sleep. I wanna’ know. Where were you?” I looked at her with a questioning look.

“You woke up and found my brother staring at you and you ask ‘Where were you?’. The answer is the bathroom. But your question should be ‘Hay Alice do you know why your brother was staring at me while I was sleeping?’” She was right. That question seemed more logical.

“O.K. Alice, do you know why Edward was watching me sleep last night” She then looked like she wanted to answer but couldn’t. I then noticed she was looking behind me.

I turned around to notice Edward walking into the kitchen smiling. He went over to the cupboards to grab a bowl.

“So, how’s your hand.” He then turned around and looked at me with a smile.

“Oh. So no ‘How’s your head Alice’” She was Glaring at him.

“No I’m sure your fine.” She then got up, punched him on the arm and then left, he then came over and sat across from me with his food.

“So, how is your hand?”

“It hurts a little.” I wanted so bad to ask him about last night but refrained. He then looked into my eyes like he was trying to figure something out.

I then heard a ringing. It was his phone. He looked at the number then looked at me.

“Well if you would please excuse me, I have to leave.” I then nodded and he left.

I was more than a little confused. The last time I had seen him he had done nothing but glare at me and left as soon as was possible. He was now acting like a perfect gentleman.

My head was spinning. The only thing I was sure of right now was the pain in my hand. Alice then came back in.

“O.k. He’ll be gone for a little bit. So here it is, I don’t know why Edward was staring at you last night but I think he likes you. Also he’ll come in here in a little bit and ask you if you would like to come with him.” She then got a big smile on her face.

“He would like to take you out on a date.” She saw my face drop and laughed. After a few minutes of laughing at my facial expression she started to leave.

“No Alice. Please don’t leave me!” She smiled and then disappeared out the door. The next thing I knew Edward was coming through the door. He looked at the table and I fallowed his gaze.

He was looking at my now empty bowl. I got up to put it in the dishwasher but he stopped me and took the bowl.

“Here, let me get this for you.” I then smiled and let him take it. After he put it in the dish washer he leaned back against the counter.

“Alice said you had something you where going to ask me.” I said in a hoarse voice.

“She did, did she?” He looked at me with a crooked smile so beautiful I was stunned and did not speak. After a while his smile diminished I nodded.

“Yeah, but maybe she was wrong.” I said with a frown.

“No, no, she was right... I wanted to ask you if you wanted to come to town with me today. I know this nice restaurant that I think you would just love. Also I have not had a chance to visit with you yet. You must think I am so rude.” He frowned and looked down.

“Kind of, but its O.K.” I looked at him with a gentle smile.

“So will you go with me?” He tilted his head and looked at me with a begging smile.

“I don’t know. Would it be a date?” He laughed a beautiful musical laugh and then answered.

“Only if you want it to be.” He smiled and laughed again.

“Well then, a date it is.” He nodded and laughed again.

“Then get ready. We can leave whenever you want... But we take my car and I drive. Is that O.K.?”

“Yeah, I guess.” I then walked out to get ready and giggled the whole time.

After looking through my limited wardrobe, I had decided upon a blue blouse with jeans and a pair of black lace flats. The happiness that I felt in my heart was strange to me. I found my self feeling like a school girl with a huge crush. Maybe on our date I could find out about those antagonistic stares. Today was sure to be interesting.
