3. Sneaking Out
Rating 5/5 Word Count 539 Review this Chapter
Midnight struck. If anyone doubts how hard it is to sneak out of the house with a psychic around, they are crazy. Luckily, most of my family were not in my way of getting to the front door. Carlisle and Esme were in the dining room reading, and Emmett and Rosalie were in Emmett’s room, and Rosalie was patiently giving Emmett support as he tried to beat a video game. However, the only two left were the ones with the superpowers that could be used to rat me out.
I tried to focus on singing Avril Lavigne songs (mostly because it bugs Edward; he was not the modern pop type of person), but my mind kept straying to the mission ahead of me. But, that did not block Jasper feeling my excitement, and guessing what I had planned for the night.
I peeked around the corner into the living room. Edward was sitting upright on the couch (as usual), as if he was sitting in a very uncomfortable wooden chair instead of a fluffy couch stuffed with feathers, and his nose was buried in a book (again, as usual). Jasper was splayed over the big chair next to the couch, with his laptop in his lap, and my vampire super-hearing detected high-pitched shooting sounds spraying from the small speakers. However, if I tried to run, they would see. Crap. I might have to be a tad more manipulative than I had planned.
Edward, I called, using my usual, upbeat voice, Emmett wants you!
Okay, maybe that was a lame excuse, but it was worth a try. Edward glanced up and saw me enter the living room, as if everything was normal.
“Alice,” Jasper called, not peeling his eyes from the laptop, “What’s up?”
“Emmett wants to show you all something on the game he’s playing,” I said, putting my hands behind my back and batting my eyelashes innocently. I gave them a small smile.
Jasper blinked for a moment, not tearing his eyes away from my face, but then said, “Uh, okay, we’re coming.”
Edward rolled his eyes. “Whatever,” he muttered, stuffing a bookmark in his book and tossing the book to the other side of the couch. Jasper paused his game and they both hurried upstairs. A huge smile spread across my face. That was far too easy.
Now, I had only a few seconds to get out before they realized that I had tricked them.
I dashed to the door, grabbed a small bag I had placed near it, threw it open, slammed it shut, and I was flying down the deserted streets. The wind whipped through my short, pixie-like hair, and I watched the buildings swish past me. It only took me a few seconds to get to the school.
Picking the school lock was easy, and I slipped in and hurried to the halls of lockers for freshmen. I paused in the middle of the hall, across from where the bathrooms were, and glanced around, thinking hard. How was I going to do this? I knew it was going to work, but I had not seen exactly how it was going to happen.
Suddenly, a thought struck me. I squealed in delight. It was perfect!
