“So, we want the flowers over there, and the seating here” Alice directed Edward and Emmett.
“Alice, we can read the plan,” said Edward.
“You don’t seem to understand, the wedding has to be perfect. It’s the most important day of a girl’s life”
“I think, traditionally, the man enjoys it too,” Edward reminded her.
“Bella, tell him” Alice implored me. I rolled my eyes. I was seated on the white couch, watching everyone start to set up for tomorrow. It was going to be a small ceremony. Both packs were coming, Charlie as well. In addition, to the friends that had helped us out with the Volturi were coming to. Well, most of them. Amun and his mate Kebi weren’t and neither were the two Romanians. Mary and Randall had both decided to come together but only for a little while.
“Just do what she says Edward, otherwise you’ll never be free of her” Alice stuck out her tongue at Edward, before heading upstairs in search of decorations. I knew why she was so anxious for everything to be perfect, because she couldn’t see either of the happy couple she didn’t know how it would go. It was very frustrating for her. Edward sighed and we all laughed. Esme was in the kitchen, baking the wedding cake (a small one as only Charlie and the wolves could eat it), Carlisle and Jasper were out running errands, and Rosalie was working on Nessie’s dress. We had stemmed away from traditional and were doing a custom one. I personally thought they were cutting it a little close, considering that the wedding was tomorrow. But, as usual, Alice had pushed my concerns away as ‘unnecessary’. Hmm. It was a good thing Nessie didn’t grow anymore; she didn’t have to be involved, which meant that Alice could at least see if the dress would be made in time. The time had passed so quickly. She had reached full maturity. A week later, Jacob had proposed. Now it was three months later and the night before. My life was perfect. My family together.
Edward’s watch beeped.
“Oops, looks like we have to go Em. Jazz will meet us there” they ran to the front door, desperate to escape before Alice came back.
“And, just where do you think you are going?” came her ringing voice from the top of the stairs. She darted down, to stand with her hands on her hips in front of the door.
“I thought Quil and Embry were sorting that out” she accused.
“But we offered to help” said Emmett.
“Your needed here” she said, angrily.
“Alice, please?” I asked.
“No Bella, why should I?”
“Because, if you don’t I will pick you up and throw you through the wall. And, if you do, I will let you choose my dress for tomorrow” Her frown changed to a smile at the thought of dressing me up again. I hadn’t let her do it in a while.
“Fine, but be back soon. We’ll need more help setting up. Don’t be late” They did a mock salute before disappearing through the open door. Alice stiffened before smiling delightedly.
“Your dress can wait Bella” I got her meaning.
“It’s done?” I was amazed. We ran up the stairs to where Rosalie stood with the beautiful green dress. It had one sleeve, which was a frill that ran along the top of the dress. A green ribbon around the middle. The skirt was short but it had an extra layer of silk that was longer. Perfect for her.
“Nessie” I called through the window. She was in the woods, hunting with Jacob. She appeared from the tree line, a broad smile on her face. She was soon upstairs with us. She touched my face. Excitement. I smiled and nodded.
