Chapter 5: Don’t Stop Believing

Part One

BPOV:

“Alice, why are we doing this?” I asked as she started curling my hair.

“Because, Bella, you need to look good tonight,” she laughed, “Besides, this is fun.”

“Fun for you,” I groaned, “But isn’t my hair just going to get messed up anyways? I mean, what is the point?”

“Oh, honey. Do you have any idea who you’re talking to? Your hair will NOT get messed up. You’re with me, remember?” she laughed.

“Right, I almost forgot, you’re Alice Brandon! You can do anything,” I rolled my eyes, “Now, work your pixie magic and get this hair done so we can go.”

She laughed, “Well, if you’d stop moving, you can be done in five minutes.”

And sure enough, five minutes later, Alice was done with my hair. As soon as I stood up, Alice shoved my clothes at me and pushed me out the door.

I smiled. I really was looking forward to going bowling with everyone. Usually, I would try to get out of any blind date Alice tried to get me to go on. This time, I didn’t even know what it was, but I was kind of excited.

“Go change so we can get out of here,” she yelled out the door as I walked to my bedroom. “Meet me in the living room in five minutes. And DO NOT mess your hair up.”

Of course, of all the things she could worry about, it’s me ruining my hair.

I changed into my clothes, and looked into the mirror. I gasped; I really did look good, and my hair and makeup was perfect. I ended up wearing a pair of dark shinny jeans with a blue top to go with it. I had to admit, Alice did an amazing job.

I would have to find a way to thank my best friends for everything they do for me.

Alice was waiting by the door when I walked into the living room. She smiled at me, “You look great Bella. Now let’s go! Rose is with Emmett; they’re all meeting us there in ten minutes.”

It’s a good thing we only lived five minutes away from the Bowling Alley.

I grabbed my coat, heading out to the parking lot with Alice. We jumped into her yellow Porsche, and we were on our way to meet Rose and the guys.

APOV:

Bella looks amazing in that outfit. Edward will never be able to take his eyes off her tonight.

I found out who Jasper’s new roommate is last night, after Bella went to bed. She didn’t know it yet, but she was about to see Edward Masen again.

I smiled. When I had mentioned Jasper’s new roommate to Bella, she wanted to know who he was. She wouldn’t tell me why, so I called Jasper to ask him the name of his new roommate…

**FLASHBACK**

Do you know what his name is?” Bella asked, curiously.

I don’t know. Jasper never told me. He just said it was one of their old friends, but we will find out tomorrow,” I told her, wondering what she was getting at.

I turned the stereo on, one of the songs from one of Bella’s CD filling the room..

I suggested. I wanted to help her get ready tomorrow, “So, I was thinking tomorrow I could help you get ready. And you can wear that new outfit I bought you. The one with the blue shirt; I think you look good in blue.”

I waited for her to reply, but she wasn’t saying anything. She was just humming to the music playing. I doubt she was even listening to me anymore.

Bella, are you even listening to me?” I almost yelled.

She snapped out of it, “Huh? Sorry Alice , what were you saying?” I think she was daydreaming. Maybe she was thinking of Edward again. Hmm..

I sighed, “I was saying, I could help you get ready for bowling tomorrow, and you can wear that new blue shirt and the jeans I got you.”

Oh. Alright, that sounds fine,” she yawned. “I think I’m going to head to bed early tonight,” She waved, walking to her bedroom, “Good night Alice. See you tomorrow”

Good night Bella,” I waved back at her. Something was up.

Hmm, Bella wanted to know who this new guy was. I wonder..

I picked up the phone, dialing Jasper’s number.

He picked up on the second ring, “Hey sweetheart, what’s up?”

I smiled. I loved this guy more than anything; he was so sweet, “Hey Jazz, I have a question,” I paused.

Sure. What is it Alice?” he sounded confused.

Who is your new roommate?” I asked.

I heard him mumble something in the background, “Edward Masen. He’s an old friend from High School. Why?”

I squealed, a little too loudly, “Oh, My God!”

What is it Alice?” he asked, worry in his voice.

Jazz, doNOTmention Bella’s name to Edward. They’ve already met,” I tried to explain.

Really, when? He just got here last week,” he whispered. Edward was probably in the room; I could hear him walking to another room.

I laughed, “A few days ago. They met at the store. He saved her from slipping on a patch of ice.”

Oh, and why am I not telling him who she is?” he asked, obviously confused.

I sighed, “Because, silly, I want it to be a surprise. Bella doesn’t know she’s going to see Edward again. I think she really likes him,” I chuckled, remembering Bella’s sleep talking, “she mumbles his name in her sleep. It’s so cute!”

Bella really did like Edward, I could tell. I can hear her at night when I walk past her room. She’s mentioned his name in her sleep every night since she’s met him. I was really happy for her, and I was about ready to go track him down myself so they could see each other again. This just made it ten times easier.

Alright, I won’t tell him. But hey, I better get back in there before he comes looking for me. I left in the middle of a game,” he laughed, “I love you Alice.”

I really loved this man, “I love you too Jazz. Good night,” I smiled.

And good night to you, sweetheart,” and he hung up.

I closed my phone, jumping up and down. This was going to be perfect!

**END FLASHBACK**

“Alice! Are you even listening to me?” I was brought out of my thoughts, Bella yelling at me and waving her hand in my face.

“Sorry Bella. What were you saying?” I asked.

“I said the light just turned green. You can go now,” she looked at me, “Are you okay?” she asked, worriedly.

I laughed, “I’m fine Bella; just thinking.”

I was so excited by that point; I was bouncing in my seat.

“M’mkay,” I heard Bella mumble.

I turned right down the next street, “We’re here! Are you ready Bella?” she had no idea what was coming.

She sighed, “As ready as I’ll ever be.”

BPOV:

I was looking out the window while Alice drove to the bowling alley. I didn’t know what to expect when I got there. I mean, who was this guy? As far as I knew, Alice didn’t know either. I didn’t even think about calling Emmett or Jasper to ask, but it’s a little late for that now.

We were stopped at a red light when I realized Alice hadn’t said anything since we got in the car.

The light turned green and she didn’t move. I looked over to her, “Alice, the light is green. You can go.”

She looked like she was deep in thought, just staring out the window, “Alice! Are you even listening to me?” I yelled, waving my hand in her face.

She looked at me, “Sorry Bella, what were you saying?”

“I said the light just turned green. You can go now,” I looked at her, “Are you okay?” I was worried. She gets lost in her thoughts a lot.

She laughed, “I’m fine Bella; just thinking.”

I rolled my eyes. Of course she was thinking; I knew that much. I was more worried about her zoning out all the time, “M’mkay,” I mumbled.

As much as I was looking forward to bowling, I was still nervous; I had butterflies in my stomach. What if he wasn’t what I wished he’d be? I didn’t know what to think anymore.

The next thing I knew, we pulled into the bowing alley parking lot.

Alice pulled into a parking space, shutting the car off, ““We’re here! Are you ready Bella?”

I sighed, “As ready as I’ll ever be.”

We got out of the car, walking into the bowling alley. We found Rose, Emmett and Jasper right away, but there wasn’t an extra person with them. I frowned. Did he decide not to come?

Alice walked over to Jasper, hugging him.

“Hello Jasper, Emmett,” I waved to the boys, “Where’s your roommate?”

“Oh, he just went to the restroom. He’ll be back in a moment,” Jasper explained.

I nodded. At least he came, right?

And so, I stood there waiting while Alice and Rose talked to the guys. Alice and Jasper were just standing there holding each other, both looking into the other’s eyes; no doubt having one of their silent conversations. Rose was sitting on Emmett’s lap, whispering to him.

I looked away for a moment, smiling because my friends were so happy. But I was also kind of sad, because I didn’t have somebody like that; someone who would be there for me like the guys were for them.

And so, I stood there, looking around the bowling alley. I wondered where this other guy was..

“Hello,” said a deep velvet voice from behind me.

That voice sounded familiar. I turned around, a little too quickly. I was afraid I was going to fall, when a pair of arms wrapped around my waist, stopping me.

I looked up and met a pair of gorgeous green eyes. I could see Rose and Alice smiling behind him. Alice was bounding up and down; I was sure she knew about this.

I bit my lip, blushing.

He grinned crookedly, “Bella Swan. We meet again.”

I loved that smile, “Edward Masen. Must we always meet like this?”

It was him again. The man I’ve been dreaming about since the day we met; that day at the grocery store.

Edward Masen.
