Pink ribbons, red roses, smiling faces and one bowl…with one fish. My mouth gaped at the sight of the fish. It made me think of before when my mother had bought me three, helpless goldfish that I stuffed with food until, a measly week later they overturned and had to be flushed.
"Bella, staring is rude."
I looked at Alice. I think I may have glared. Accidentally.
Edward approached me with the fish. "I know you told me about your three before and well, I thought you may like to try again."
"Erhm…" That was all I could say. I think I felt a little flushed. I was touched that he got me something, but A FISH! I wasn’t being greedy though. I was just scared and remembered too well. "Thank you," I said with a small smile.
He looked rather pleased but his eyes looked at me knowingly. He knew I was hiding something.
"Happy Valentine’s Day Bella," said Esme as she enveloped me with a hug. Carlisle hugged me too. I smiled at him and thought of how he reminded me of a father. Emmett…oh Emmett. He ran, rather gracefully, although he was no antelope, scooped me up and hugged me also. Rosalie stayed back and just smiled and nodded. I understood and returned her smile.
"Happy Valentine’s Emmett," I said rather embarrassed. Edward glared. Not a jealous glare, just the overprotective one.
Jasper hung back with Alice. He still wasn’t over about what had happened before. I could feel him though. He was casting a showering mood of happiness. I smiled at him and he smiled back.
I looked at Edward who was looking at me happily. I smiled out of sheer happiness. Of course though, when I went to look at his family; they weren’t there.
"Bella, I have something else for you too. But it’ll have to wait till later," Edward said.
Now I was giddy. TONIGHT MAY BE THE NIGHT! I smiled and looked at my fish. I silently named him Edward. I laughed a little.
"What’s so funny?" Edward asked with curiosity.
"Nothing," I replied swiftly.
Edward grinned smugly. He put the fish in my truck. "Tell me," he called carefully closing the door.
"Not a chance."
"Do I have to tamper with your memory again?" He was very happy. He liked that he could do that.
"No!" I replied swiftly. I only know it would work. I couldn’t resist. He was heaven.
"Then, tell me," he said.
"I…um…named the fish…" I paused there. I didn’t want to go further.
"You named the fish what?" Oh ya, he was way smug now.
I couldn’t look at him. He was dazzling me with his eyes. "I named him…after you." I was embarrassed. I could feel the heat on my cheeks creeping all the way to my ears.
Then, he burst out laughing.
I glared at him and hit his shoulder. "Ow…"
"You know, I spend all this time to keep you safe and from getting hurt, but you end up doing it without my help."
I shook my hand and he gently grabbed it and kissed it with his cool lips. "You should be more careful," he said.
