I snapped my mirror shut. Hmmm.... should I pick truth? That certainly would be safer. But, Alice and I are friends. She wouldn't pick anything too terrible. Would she? She better not. Ugh! Truth or dare? This game is horrible! Whatever...
"Dare," I said grudgingly.
Alice grinned and said, "I dare you to....." she trailed off.
I looked at Edward and noticed that he was grinning. Oh no! That can't be good!
Alice hesitated before saying "Dye your hair pink...... and leave it that way for one week. Oh and if anyone asks why your hair is pink, which they will, you have to say "Because pink is such a fashionable color, and it brings out my eyes," she concluded.
I sat there, frozen in place. What did she say? I must have a hearing problem...
Edward glanced at me and snorted. "Yeah. Hearing problems are common among vampires. . ."
I ignored him. "Wh--What?" I asked.
"Dye your hair pink and leave it like that for one week," Alice repeated slowly with a slight smile on her face
I looked around the room, meeting the gaze of each of my family members. This wasn't a joke....
My eyes almost popped out of my head. "But.... but..... NO!" I screamed.
"Yes," Alice said simply. She ran upstairs and came back down with some pink hair dye. She held it out for me.
"Where did that come from? Do you just randomly keep pink hair dye upstairs?" Jasper asked.
Alice just stared at him. "I have visions. Remember?"
"Yeeeaaaahhhhh...." Jasper said shifty-eyed.
I stared at it with disgust. "You've got to be kidding, Alice."
"Nope, I'm not. Now dye your hair." She commanded.
I looked at Emmett with a hopeful expression. "Emmett?"
Emmett held his hands up and said, "Don't look at me, Rose. I have no part in this."
I grimaced. "But do you really want to be married to a vampire with pink hair?"
Emmett paused, and after a moment he shrugged. "It's only for a week. . ."
"BE A MAN, ROSE!" Jasper yellled enthusiastically as he punched his fist in the air.
I glared at him. "I am NOT a man, Jasper. And, besides, you should start acting like one BEFORE you tell someone else to."
Jasper pouted. "Weeeeellllll," he said, drawing out the word. "Atleast I don't have to dye my hair!" He laughed at that.
I sighed. Looks like I've been defeated, I thought sadly.
I saw Edward's lips twitch. Jerk.
I slowly reached my hand out and took the vile container.
It finally clicked. She expected me to dye my hair?! "NOOO!" I screamed. "Alice! You're horrible! I can't!"
"You can. And if you don't then I will get Emmett to hold you down while I dye your hair for you." Alice tapped the side of her head. "And I can promise you that will happen if you don't dye your hair by yourself. Visions, remember?"
I looked at Emmett. "You wouldn't do that."
"Well....a dare is a dare Rose." Emmett said carefully.
"WHAT DO YOU MEAN A DARE IS A DARE?!"
Emmett flinched. "Well, I had to dress up like a dog," he said defensively.
"This is different!" I wailed.
"It's only for ONE week," Edward reminded me, he sounded annoyed.
ONE WEEK?! THAT IS TOO LONG! WAAAY TOO LONG!
Edward looked at me strangly.
GET OUT OF MY HEAD YOU-- YOU-- YOU--
He was grinning by now.
YOU BELLA OBSESSOR!!!
That wiped that stupid grin off his face.
I smirked at him, while he glared at me.
That'll teach you, I thought.
I sighed as I opened the hair dye.
"Alice before I do this, I just want you to know that you will really regret this."
"Thanks. I'll be sure to remember that," she said lightly.
I took out the dye and stared at it for a long time.
"You know.... it's not gonna run away or anything..." Jasper said, trying to be helpful.
"Shut up, Jasper. Just shut up." I snarled.
"Well, you've been staring at that bottle for quite a while now!" He added.
I ignored him.
I followed the instructions and reluctantly put the dye in my hair. When it was all in, I whimpered.
"Goodbye blonde hair," I whispered sadly.
Emmett's lips twitched. "Did you seriously just talk to your hair?!"
"Yes, Emmett. Do you have a problem with that? DO YOU?!" I yelled.
"Erm... well, I just thought it was kind of weird... that's all...." Emmett said slowly.
"You think I'M WEIRD?! LOOK IN THE MIRROR BUDDY!" I yelled at him (again).
Jasper and Edward laughed.
"Alright go take out the dye now," Alice said.
I ran upstairs and hurriedly washed the dye out. I slowly, VERY slowly turned around to face the mirror....
MY HAIR! MY BEAUTIFUL HAIR! ALL--- ALL--- PPPIIIIINNNKKKK!!!!!
"What's she doing?" I heard Jasper ask Edward from downstairs.
There was a pause before Edward answered. Reading my mind, probably. "Oh she's just having a nervous breakdown because her hair is pink....." Edward said simply, as if there was nothing wrong at all.
"Ooooohhhhh," Jasper sounded bored. HOW COULD HE SOUND BORED?!
How could they take this so simply? I'm sure if they had to dye their hair, they would react with a lot more emotion!
Before I could say something to shut them both up, Esme walked into the bathroom.
"What's wrong sweetie?" Esme asked, concerned. I turned to look at her and she looked shocked.
"EVERYTHING!" I wailed.
"Oh.... ummm.... well...why is your hair pink?" she asked. Her lips twitched.
"Because Al--" I started.
"ROSALIE!" Alice yelled from downstairs.
I started over. "Because pink is such a fashionable color..." I growled. "And it brings out my eyes" I snarled.
Esme looked surprised. "Well..... erm... why don't we go downstairs..." Esme said, carefully keeping her face expressionless.
I nodded and walked as slowly as I could down to the living room.
When I entered the living room, Carlisle was in there too.
Emmett, Edward, Jasper, Alice and Esme all burst out laughing.
Carlisle looked like he was trying not to but he failed miserably.
"I'm--I'm sorry Rosalie. It's just that--I never knew you would ACTUALLY dye your hair PINK of all colors!" Carlisle said as he finally started laughing.
"You look like you stuck a piece of cotton candy on top of your head!" Jasper managed to choke out between laughs. Everyone laughed harder.
"Thank you, Jasper." I said sarcastically. "Atleast I don't ALWAYS look like that."
"What is that supposed to mean?" Jasper asked.
"Figure it out," I growled.
"I'm trying but your HAIR is really distracting!" he complained.
"AAAAHH!" I screamed.
Emmett's booming laugh echoed around the house. "Rose---Rose--- you look like---like a---a---- STRAWBERRY!" he screeched out between his laughs.
"A strawberry?! How the heck do I look like a STRAWBERRY?!" I yelled in outrage.
"He's right!" Alice choked out.
When the laughter finally faded, Jasper said, "Alright. Now sit down, Strawberry."
I glared at him, but he just shrugged. "What did you expect?" he asked innocently.
"Never mind don't answer that," he added quickly.
I sat down and tried to think of a dare that was worse than this. There isn't one! Or is there?
I saw Edward high-five Alice. "That was an AWESOME dare Alice! Nice ONE!"
"Yeah really!" Jasper said.
"That's the best one so far!" Emmett added.
Carlisle and Esme left the room, chuckling.
"Hey! Where are you two going?" Edward asked.
"Do you really think that after what happened to Strawberry that we are going to stay and play?" Carlisle asked sarcastically.
"In your dreams, and since none of us dream, you won't have to worry about it!" Esme added as they left.
"I'm surprised they don't bock like chickens yet!" Emmett grinned.
"I believe it's my turn now," I said angrily.
"Oh yeah... alright go for it Strawberry," Alice said.
"Can you STOP calling me STRAWBERRY?!" I asked in frustration.
"Nope, now go."
Who should I go after? Edward! He hasn't gone yet! I quickly blocked my mind by singing the ABC's. He looked at me cautiously. I just smiled at him evilly.
"Truth or dare, Edward?"
He looked like he was concentrating on something, probably my thoughts. BUT I was blocking them very well. I smiled as he grew more frustrated by the second.
"Ummm..... truth," he concluded.
Oh well, truth works well too. In fact, truth works much better.
"Alright, is it true that....... that you," I stopped. "Why are you smiling?!"
He chuckled. "I'm sorry, well not really... but I just can't take you seriously with that hair!"
Jasper snickered, and Alice smiled.
"Is it true that you..." I continued in a louder voice. "think the way Bella blushes is hot?"
"Ummm.....no.... well, yeah.... I guess..... I don't know?" He finished lamely. It sounded more like a question than an answer.
"TELL THE TRUTH!" Emmett yelled, pointing an accusing finger at him.
"Alright, alright!" Edward said, clearly uncomfortable. "Yes, I do!"
"Jasper?" I asked.
"Yep. He's telling the truth. AND he is VERY embarrassed right now." Jasper said, grinning.
"Thanks Jasper. I owe you," Edward said angrily.
"I'm not done yet," Rosalie said.
"I thought you only get to ask one question," Edward said smugly, no doubt thinking he'd won.
"We never made the rules in the beginning, sorry bro," Emmett said happily. He didn't sound sorry at all. That's my husband! GOOO EMMETT! WOOOOO!
I grinned. "Anyway, what do you do over at Bella's every night?"
"Geez Edward! Too bad you can't blush! You'd beat even Bella's darkest shade of red!" Jasper exclaimed.
"Umm... I just stay with her..." Edward said innocently.
"That's it?!" Emmett said, disappointment coloring his voice.
"Well... yeah..." Edward said slowly.
"LIAR!" Jasper yelled at Edward.
"GEEZ!" Edward said in frustration.
HA! You deserve this Edward Anthony Masen Cullen, I thought smugly.
"So, do you kiss her?" I asked. I am going to make him as embarrassed as possible.
"Umm...... yeah....." Edward said, fidgeting uncomfortably.
Emmett wolf-whistled, and Jasper yelled, "WOOOOOOOOOO!"
"Is he embarrassed enough?" I asked Jasper.
Jasper grinned. "Well, if he were human he would be the DEEPEST shade of red that was ever made!"
Edward sat there grimly. Probably steeling himself for the next question.
"You must do more! Humans aren't very interesting when they sleep....." Emmett said casually.
"You guys are SICK!" Edward said.
Jasper cocked his head to one side, "If we're so sick then why do I detect a hint of longing in your emotions, Edward?"
Emmett and Alice and I laughed.
"Ahhhahahahaha! Edddwwaarrrddd! What are you longing for? Huh?" Emmett asked between laughs.
"BE A MAN, EDDIE!" Esme yelled from upstairs.
Edward cringed at the use of Esme's nickname for him.
Jasper started singing Free Bird. "Fly free. . . . . ."
"Nice song choice, Jazz," Alice chirped.
"I think that is enough questions for now. It's my turn," Edward managed to squeak out.
"Dude! Did you just squeak?!" Jasper asked, his lips twitching.
"OOOH! That is not very MANLY bro!" Emmett said, laughing.
"It's more manly than you'll EVER be!" Edward said angrily.
"Yeah, that's what you think..." Emmett smiled, taunting him.
"EDWARD! STOP FEELING SO EMBARRASSED! YOU'RE STARTING TO MAKE ME FEEL SELF-CONSCIOUS!" Jasper yelled.
"It's not my fault that you are, how did you phrase it Emmett? Ah yes, an "Emotion reading freak", Edward said, smirking.
Jasper looked like he was going to kill Emmett.
"Woah, buddy, control your emotions. Now I have this sudden urge to kill Emmett...." Alice said carefully.
"Is that a bad thing?" Jasper asked darkly. An evil smile was forming on his lips.
"YES!" Emmett screamed like a girl. "Don't hurt me! Rose'll do that for you later!"
"If anyone deserves to die it would be Strawberry girl over there," Edward added quickly.
"Wow. For being such a "I'm strong and you're not" kind of guy, you are easily scared... And I agree Eddie, but don't you worry Strawberry, I would never kill anyone!" Jasper said, settling back down on the couch.
Emmett flexed his muscles. "Think whatever you want. Rose can be deadly when she wants to be..." he said in a darker tone.
"Oh, Emmett. You make me sound like such a monster..." I said lightly.
"We already are monsters aren't we?" Edward asked sadly.
"Oh shut up, Mr. Pessimist," Jasper said. "Now, I am fighting the urge to be depressed....can't you just be happy?"
"Yeah, like the color yellow..." Emmett added.
"Yellow?" Alice asked, grinning.
"Yuppers!" he said brightly.
Edward stared at him oddly.... then again... who doesn't stare at Emmett oddly?
"It's MY TURN!" Edward yelled as loudly as he could.
All of us covered our ears.
"Why did you yell?!" Alice asked, clearly annoyed.
"To be annoying..." Edward replied as if it were the most obvious thing in the world.
Ugh! That was embarrassing! Don't they understand that I could kill Bella if I'm not careful? If I lose conrol for a second?
I stared at each member of my family, examining their expressions carefully. Who shall I pick? Hmmmm...
I stared at Rosalie, then grinned. I couldn't help but stare at her hair. It just caught your eye... I mean seriously! It was PINK! HOT PINK! Who couldn't stare at it?
"Truth or Dare Strawberry?" I asked her.
"Me? AGAIN?!" she asked, outraged.
Why is he picking me?! I already went! Ugh! Leave it to Edward... I might as well pick dare.. I mean what could be worse than having to dye your hair PINK? Then again.... nah! There is nothing worse...... Alice is SO gonna die if she can't find a dye that is exactly my shade of blonde. In fact... if she can't... she will be SO sorry she'll--
"Strawberry?" Edward asked slowly.
"What?!" I snapped. I was in the middle of a thought, there.
"Truth or dare?"
Oh right.... looks like I got a little carried away....
OH NO! Maybe there is something worse than dying your hair pink! Why don't I ever learn?!
YES! I am so glad she didn't chicken out! She'll wish that she had soon enough though.... Now I can get Newton and his annoyingly descriptive thoughts about MY Bella away from me and Bella for a week! Finally!
This'll work very nicely.
Oh no! What is he planning?! Alice won't be the only one to pay if he makes me-- GET OUT OF MY HEAD EDWARD! Rosalie thought nastily.
"Sorry.... but you were practically screaming them in your head.. Kinda hard to ignore, ya' know?"
"NO I do not KNOW!" She sneered.
"Fine. Be that way. I dare you to--" I paused dramatically. "flirt with Mike NEWTON for one week. Sit with him at lunch and stare at him. Make him think you like him." I said smugly.
GENIOUS! Jasper yelled as loudly as he possibly could in his head.
"In fact, do it this week." I added.I thought there could be nothing worse than having to dye my hair pink.... I am so stupid! WHY MIKE NEWTON?! He's a weirdo! Edward!!!! That is not fair!
Wow Edward. That was better than my dare. Good choice! This will be fun to watch! I am actually looking forward to going to highschool, Alice praised me in her thoughts.
Dude that was awesome. Newton better not pull a move on her though. Emmett unconsciously flexed his muscles.
HAHAHAHAHA! I can't wait to see the look on Newton's face! The Strawberry strikes again! Jasper thought. Wow... his thoughts get less and less intelligent every day... What a shame...
"How long do I have until school starts?" Rosalie asked sullenly.
Jasper looked at his new watch. "You have exactly 5 minutes and 32 seconds until we have to leave for school." Jasper informed us.
"FIVE MINUTES?!" Rosalie and Alice screeched.
"Uh... yeah....." Jasper said.
Alice looked at Rosalie. "I don't know why you care... I mean your hair is pink..."
"What on earth are you trying to say Alice Cullen?!" Rosalie asked in her furious voice.
What I am trying to say is that no amount of clothing or make-up is going to save you... until of course you can dye your hair back to blonde...... I grinned.
Alice you are... too horrible for words to describe! I still look pretty don't I? As Rosalie thought this she pulled out her mirror again. Instead of the smug look she usually got when she looked at her reflection, she looked unhappy.
"Get ready for your day with Newton!" Alice replied cheerfully as she ran upstairs to change.
Rosalie ran after her........ to change too.... I hope... Watch your back Alice!
Don't you have to go pick up your girlfriend? Emmett asked in his head.
"Duh..." I said simply.
"Wait Emmett! Truth or dare?" Jasper asked quickly, but so quietly that only the three of us would hear.
"Dare.... but it's not your turn.." Emmett said, sounding confused.
"So what? Ok good..." Jasper was grinning now. "I dare you to act smart for this whole day."
I grinned. This'll be a rare sight. . .What the heck does he mean 'act smart'? I always act smart. Wait I don't ACT it, I AM SMART! Jasper, you stink!
"What is that supposed to mean?" Emmett asked, careful to keep his voice quiet.
"As in use BIG words and try to sound like you're a genious.... you can do it! Oh and if anyone asks why you are suddenly using your brain today--" Emmett started to protest but Jasper just raised his hands and continued. "Say that you decided to use your brain today."
"Edward truth or dare?" Emmett asked. I was shocked. I expected him to be angry... but he sounded calm.... I quickly searched both of their thoughts, only to find that they were blocked.
Jasper was going through multiple military strategies in his head while Emmett was pretending to be... Yoda? I gave him an odd look...
"Nice way to distract your thoughts Emmett..." I said, grinning.
Emmett pretended to brush imaginary dust from his shoulder. "Thank you Mr. Edward Cullen."
"I was just getting to the good part, too," he said sadly.
"I pick dare..." I said.
"YE---" he was cut off by Jasper.
"ACT SMART!" He reminded him.
"This isn't any fun..." Emmett mumbled.
He started over. "I dare you to dress in ONLY the color yellow today and tomorrow. If anyone asks why you are in all yellow you have to say, "Because yellow is such a happy color. I am a little ray of sunshine for those in need."
I stared at him. "What?! But why?"
"Because you are such a depressing fre--" a look from Jasper cut him off. "I mean-- you are such a pessimistic, depressing vampire."
I stared at him. "You really think the color of my clothes is going to change that? And I am not a pessimistic, depressing vampire!" I added.
"When Bella isn't here you are."
"I AM NOT!" I yelled.
HAHAHAHA yeah that's funny.. of course you are! NOW GO change Edward! Jasper thought.Emmett was smirking by now. Bet you didn't see that one coming! There is more where that came from too. Emmett thought smugly. What are you waiting for? GO!
I looked at him and smirked. "I don't own any YELLOW clothes," I informed him.
"You do now!" Alice yelled from upstairs.
I groaned and glared at Emmett.
"I hate the color yellow."
"It's about time you started to like it...." Emmett said happily.
I ran upstairs to my bedroom. Alice had laid the clothes out for me.
I shuddered. Why yellow?! I quickly changed. I had never seen yellow guys shorts before now. I had never wanted to.. and I wish I had never seen any now.
When I walked back downstairs, my siblings thoughts swirled around me.
We're quite a crew. I am the only normal one today... Jasper thought smugly. I had the strong urge to hit him but restrained it.
HAHAHA I still can't get over Rose's hair! Wait'll the people at school see her! Wait until MIKE NEWTON sees her! Emmett thought. Wow his thoughts weren't that smart.. I shot him a warning look. I mouthed the words You're not being smart to him. He just shrugged and thought, But Jasper doesn't know that, now does he?
I grinned at him. Rosalie's thoughts interrupted my discussion with Emmett.
Wow Edward you look horrible in yellow. EW! Rosalie's kind thoughts entered my mind.
I gave her hair another appraising look. "Nice hair."
She scowled at me. "Nice clothes."
I grimaced.Edward you are a little ball of sunshine! Be ready to say that because I had a vision and people do ask why you are wearing all yellow.
I looked at Alice. "How come you and Jasper are the only ones who get to go to school as NORMAL, well not people but youget what I mean.." I complained.
"Because we are awesome." Jasper said, smirking as he looked over my outfit.
"And you know it!" Alice added as she went to stand next to Jasper.
Today was going to be a long day, I thought as I went to get my Volvo and go pick up Bella.
