~Edwards pov~

I was about to do something so stupid for a person in my position and all for the love of my family. I was taking Bella out to lunch today so everybody could go hunt.

When I had come back I was struck yet again by Bella’s powerful scent. I had stood their and watched her sleep.

Alice had left to spend time with Jasper. I saw her on the couch, her face peaceful. I was entranced by her. Pieces of her hair hung lightly over her face. The curve of her body was noticeable even under the blankets. I had been rude to her and a fair creature as herself did not deserve it. She then stirred and sat up. She looked around most likely looking for Alice. I had awakened the angel from her dreams. I came over to the couch and kneeled beside her. I laid the blanket back over her.

“Its o.k. just go back to sleep.” I had said. She then fell back asleep. In the morning before Alice came back to put up her facade I left to my room.


I was brought downstairs by a ruckus going on. Alice was apparently a little to anxious to wake up Bella this morning. I listened to the assessment. Bella had hurt her hand. I walked down the stairs. The all could hear me come down with their vampire hearing but did not immediately greet me so they could fit in with Bella’s human hearing. They where all laughing at what had happened.

“What are we all laughing for?” I asked casually as I looked at Bella. I was starting to get better at controlling myself.

“EDWARD!!! You’re home!!!” Alice screamed and ran up to me 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.” She then came over and put me in an embrace. “Its nice to finally have you back home.” He then smiled at her.

“I am too.”

“You’ve got some explaining to do! Come on. We’ll go upstairs and me, you, and your father can talk.” We then walked upstairs and into Carlisle’s study. His study had the feel of a college dean’s office. The walls where filled with endless books except for the parts covered with Carlisle’s history.


When we walked in Carlisle let Esme sit in the chair while he stood and they looked at me expectantly. I had talked to my parents and told them I could not here her thoughts. Today they gave me a mission. I was about to do something so stupid for a person in my position and all for the love of my family. I was taking Bella out to lunch today so everybody could go hunt. All I had to do now was set my plan in motion.

I walked back down stairs and into the kitchen where Bella was eating breakfast with Alice. They where into a conversation but had stopped. I could tell it was because of my entrance. I looked through Alice’s mind to see what it was about but Alice blocked me out.

I went over to grab a bowl and then turned around.

“So, how’s your hand.” I asked with a smile. Then Alice turned to glare at me which only made me smile more.

“Oh. So no ‘How’s your head Alice’” She had to be kidding. Only vampires could really hurt other vampires.

“No I’m sure your fine.” She then got up, punched me on the arm and then left, I then came over and sat across from her with my food. “So, how is your hand?”

“It hurts a little.” I could heart a longing in her voice like she was holding something back. I then heard a ringing. It was my phone. I looked at it. It was Alice. She was trying to get me out of the room so she could talk to me. She had a better plan to get me and Bella out of the house for the day. I then looked up at her with a soft smile.

“Well if you would please excuse me, I have to leave.” She nodded and I left the room.


I sat by Alice on the couch.

“So you watched her sleep last night huh?” She had a wicked smile on her face.

“Alice, it’s none of your business.” I said in a serious tone.

“Yeah, yeah, whatever. Just listen. I reserved seats at a small Italian restaurant for you and Bella. Take her out shopping first. She likes books and music... Oh and make it romantic!” I looked at her incredulously. She was trying to hook me up.

“You mean like a date?” I was starting to get annoyed.

“Exactly like a date. Look just do this and not only will you be getting time for us to hunt but you’ll also get Esme off your back to start dating.” She had a point and it wouldn’t be that bad, especially going with Bella. I nodded and Alice went in to ‘prep’ Bella on her day.

I then walked in to the room as Alice left. I noticed the empty bowl in front of her wondering if it would be ‘romantic’ to put it away for her. She noticed my stair and got up to put it in the dishwasher so I got up instead to put it away for her.

“Here, let me get this for you.” She smiled at me as I went to put it in the dishwasher. I then turned around and leaned back on the counter.

“Alice said you had something you where going to ask me.” She said in a hoarse voice. She seemed a little braver today.

“She did, did she?” I looked at her with a smile. She did nothing but stair as she did my smile diminished. She then nodded and spoke.

“Yeah, but maybe she was wrong.” She said with a frown. I did not like it when she was frowning. I did not want her to feel bad.

“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.” I frowned and looked down.

“Kind of, but its O.K.” Her gentle smile let me know I was forgiven.

“So will you go with me?” I tilted my head to look at her with a puppy dog smile.

“I don’t know. Would it be a date?” I laughed. I didn’t even have to tell her what it was.

“Only if you want it to be.” I said as I laughed again.

“Well then, a date it is.” I wasnever one to laugh but her presence just bought it out in me I thought as I laughed again.

“Then get ready. We can leave whenever you want... But we take my car and I drive. Is that O.K.?” I did not want to drive at a slow pace today.

“Yeah, I guess” She then walked out of the room. When she was out of view I could hear her giggling. That meant everybody else could too.


I then heard their thoughts.

Emmett’s- Awwww, how adorable Eddy’s got a little giggle bot. His thoughts where filled with jokes.

Rosalie- Can’t she just be quiet? Edward get her out of here already!!! As always, her thoughts where centered on herself.

Jasper- She is really happy Edward and don’t mind me if I say ‘so are you.’ Jasper was making assessments.

Carlisle- Good luck Edward!

Esme- I am so proud of you. I hope it works out. Alice. Told you my plan would work.

Today was sure to interesting.
