“Bella?” Alice asked, knocking on the door. That movie was so dull; I couldn’t stand another minute of it!And it isn’t like I could resist checking out the vision in real life. Oh, she was done with the movie. And she knew exactly what Edward and I were up to. The one time Edward and I could actually be alone. We had an hour alone together cut short to fifteen minutes. Just when we were going to “hit home base.” Thanks Alice.

The lights in the room were dimmed, the curtains blocking every bit of light from the window. Edward and I were curled up in each other in the bubbling hot tubs; recordings of the piano were playing softly in the background. The little light in the room reflected off the water around Edward, glorifying him even more. His bronze hair was glistening from the steam. I had my own personal Greek God intertwined with me.

“Come on, Bella! We need to get started with those disguises!” She was giggling from outside the door. She was just mean, seeing as she knew exactly what she was interrupting. Spiteful. Malicious. I groaned.

“Alice, go away,” shouted Edward, obviously not happy about being interrupted. I met his gaze and rolled my eyes. Maybe we should run for it, he thought, gesturing toward the window. He smiled my favorite crooked smile, and I couldn’t choke back a grin.

“I’m not going away!” She exclaimed, not even trying to hide her laughter. Footsteps came up from behind her, and I braced myself for whoever else could have been coming.

“What ‘cha laughing at?” Emmett said, confused. At least he didn’t already know. He probably thought Alice was crazy for laughing at a door.

“I just interrupted them… you know,” Alice giggled. I was going to kill her.

I could practically see the expression on Emmett’s face as the thoughts passed through his head.

I don’t know! What does she mean? She just interrupt-Oh!

This was going to be bad. It was no secret that Emmett thought that Edward’s whole “100-something-year-old-virgin” thing was hilarious.

“It’s ‘bout time, guys!” Emmett yelled through the door, and we heard the loud crash of him falling to the floor laughing. Edward tensed, and was about to jump up to go beat Emmett up like he so richly deserved, but I grabbed his arm and started rubbing back and forth on his icy skin. I leaned over and breathed into his ear. I brought my head back a few inches, and before I could, he leaned in and embraced me in a passionate kiss; Alice and Emmett were still laughing, at our expense, only a few feet away.

The electricity between us had never been stronger. Not in the meadow, not at Prom, never. It was incredible, and I never wanted to leave. Laying here with Edward was bliss. Alice and Emmett could laugh all they wanted and it wouldn’t change that. I knew I had been worrying about something, but I couldn’t even remember what at this point.

“Bella, seriously, we really, really need to get to Forks. And in order to go to Forks, we need to start working on our disguises now.” It all came flooding back to me, and my mind was once again flooded with concern for Charlie. It must have shown on my face because Edward kissed me, again, before standing up.

“Don’t worry,” he whispered breathily, gazing deep into my eyes. For a moment, I was stunned. Even when I was a vampire he dazzled me.
