Part Two

BPOV:

Edward let go of me once he was sure I wasn’t going to fall over, “Hello Bella. It’s nice to see you again,” he grinned crookedly, “Are you ready for some bowling tonight?”

“It’s nice to see you too Edward,” I grimaced, “I’m not so sure about bowling. With my klutziness, you never know what’s going to happen.”

He chuckled, “Don’t worry Bella, I’ll always be there to catch you if you fall,” he winked at me, walking back to the others.

I smiled, walking behind him. From the look on Alice’s face, she knew all about this.

“Excuse me Jasper, but could I borrow Alice for just a minute?” I narrowed my eyes at her.

He looked at Alice, “Sure Bella, I’ll just go and get some shoes for everyone. What size do you need?”

“Umm, size 8. Thanks,” I grabbed Alice’s arm, dragging her over to the bowling balls, “Marry Alice Brandon! You knew about this, didn’t you?”

She looked at me, innocently, “Knew about what Bella?”

I threw my hands in the air, “You know damn well what I’m talking about. Jasper’s new roommate is EDWARD.”

She smiled, “Oh, that. Well, I might have called Jasper last night and asked about him. But I only did it because you were asking.”

She grabbed an 8 pound ball and turned to leave. I stopped her, “Alice!” I rocked back and forth on my heels as she turned around, “Thank you.”

She smiled, “Your welcome. Now get out there and have fun. And if it makes you feel any better, Edward didn’t know you were going to be here either,” and she walked back to the others, her bowling ball in hand.

I grabbed a ten pound ball and started heading back. It shouldn’t be too bad, right? I mean, it’s just bowling, and Edward was there. Yes, Edward was there; I got to see him again, and I had Alice to thank for it.

I had thought about the possibilities of Edward being the new roommate, but I never actually believed it. I mean, this was really happening. This was Edward Masen; the same Edward with gorgeous green eyes, and that adorable crooked grin. He was perfect, and almost God-like in my eyes. He was like my own personal God. And he was here, bowling with a group of friends.

I had to admit, I was happy; extremely happy.

I got back to the group, setting my ball down and putting my bowling shoes on.

Edward sat down next to me, his shoes already on and ready to go. I could feel my heartbeat thumping in my chest. I don’t know why I was acting like this. I had never felt this way around any other guy before.

“So, are you ready for this?” he said, waving a hand towards the bowling pins.

I looked at him, confused.

He laughed, “For bowling, I mean.”

I blushed, turning my head away, hoping he wouldn’t see, “Oh right, bowling. Umm, I guess so. I’m just not so good at it.”

“Neither am I, so don’t worry about it. Just have fun,” he flashed that crooked grin again, “And for the record, I like your blush.”

And he walked away, leaving me there to think about what he said. He liked my blush? What is that supposed to mean; does he like me? I don’t see how he could; I’m just plain old Bella. I’m nothing special; there’s absolutely nothing interesting about me.

And so, I shook it off. I tried not to think about it, but I found my mind wondering back to what he had said. He liked my blush?

I was brought out of my thoughts, Alice yelling at me, “Bella! Get your ass over here. It’s your turn.”

I sighed, walking over to the bowling balls. It was my turn to bowl.

****

And so, the game went on. We were in the fifth frame, and I had already gotten at least three gutter balls. I only had fourteen points by then, and I wasn’t getting any better.

It was nice to see that I wasn’t the only bad bowler there. Edward was sucking it up just as much as I was, but we were having fun.

It was my turn again. I picked up my ball, heading over to knock some pins down. Maybe.

I rolled the ball down the aisle. The ball rolled straight down the middle hitting the pins right down the middle. I closed my eyes; I didn’t want to see what was going to happen. I heard a crash, and all of a sudden there were a pair of arms wrapped around me.

I opened my eyes, only to find Edward giving me a hug. I looked at the pins, realizing I had just gotten a strike. Believe it, or not, I had never gotten a strike before.

I was so excited; I wrapped my arms around Edward, hugging him back. He was warm, and comfortable. It was almost like we fit perfectly together; like we were made for each other.

All too soon, he let me go. I could hear the screams from behind me; everyone yelling my name and congratulating me.

Edward stood next to me, his eyes fixed on me. He smiled my favorite grin, taking my hand and intertwining his fingers with mine. I smiled, and we walked back to the group together.

I sat down, Edward sitting next to me, “That was amazing Bella; great job,” he smirked, “And you haven’t even fallen over yet. I’m proud of you,” he winked at me, standing up.

It was Edwards turn to bowl.

He picked up a ball, rolling it down the aisle. I smiled, watching him; I loved watching him. He didn’t do as well as me, but he got most of the pins down.

I laughed as he walked back to me, a frown on his face, “Aww Edward, don’t pout. We’re here to have fun, remember?” I giggled.

He sat down by me again, grinning crookedly at me.

The next thing I knew, he started tickling me. I couldn’t help it; I was super ticklish, and there was no way I could stop laughing.

“Edward, stop,” I squealed.

He laughed, “What was that Bella? I didn’t quite hear you.”

I continued laughing, “I said, stop,” I managed to get out between laughs.

“Oh, you want me to stop, huh?” he chuckled, “I don’t think I can do that Bella. You see, you told me we were here to have fun. And this is what I call fun.”

He suddenly stopped. I turned around, looking into those beautiful green eyes. I smiled to myself. This night had turned out to be amazing. I couldn’t thank Alice enough for this.

Suddenly, Edward had his arms wrapped around my waist. I bit my lip as he leaned in closer to me. The next thing I knew, his lips were on mine.

I couldn’t help but smiling as he kissed me. I could feel his lips curling into a smile as well; obviously happy he had kissed me. I felt complete at that moment, like I didn’t need anything else in the world. Edward Masen was kissing me; I couldn’t believe it.

All too soon, he let go of me. I felt his warmth leave me and suddenly felt like I was missing a part of me. I blushed and bit my lip. Edward was standing there, watching me, when he broke out in a wide grin.

I almost forgot where we were when Alice yelled at me again, “Bella! Get out there; it’s your turn again,” she obviously hadn’t seen what just happened.

This time, I wasn’t so lucky. I got gutter balls both times, but I didn’t care. I walked back over to Edward, plopping down in my chair again.

“It’s okay Bella. We’re just here for fun, remember?” he winked at me, grabbing my hand and intertwining his fingers with mine again.

I bit my lip, just looking at him.

****

It was now the tenth frame, and I was up again. I picked up my ball, rolling it down the aisle once again. This time, I got a spare, knocking down all the pins on my second turn. I was so happy I ended up getting a gutter ball on the third try. But I didn’t care; I just wanted to be by Edward again.

I wasn’t even paying attention to where I was walking. I didn’t see the step that was there, and I tripped over it, starting to fall over. But, once again, Edward was there to save me. He wrapped his arms around my waist, stopping my fall.

“I told you I’d always be there to catch you when you fall,” he grinned my favorite grin.

I blushed again, turning my head, “Thank you, once again.”

“Anytime Bella, anytime,” he let go of me, turning to take his turn in bowling.

I had been having so much fun, I didn’t even realize the night was almost over. We were on our tenth frame of our third game. After this, we were done; it would be time to go home. I suddenly felt sad. I liked having Edward at my side, and when he had kissed me, it was like heaven.

I ended up losing the game; I only bowling a sixty four. Edward beat me with a whopping seventy. I didn’t even care if I lost; I was just glad I was having fun. I was a little hesitant to go bowling with everyone. I hadn’t always been the best bowler, and I have always been known to fall down a lot.

We finished the game, and returned our shoes.

“Congratulations Bella, you managed to only fall once tonight. And even then, Edward was there to catch you,” Alice winked at me.

She left my side, dancing over to Jasper, who was waiting for her over by his car. Emmett and Rose had already left.

I heard Edward walk up behind me, “Good job tonight Bella; I had a lot of fun,” he grinned.

I smiled, “Me too Edward. We should do this more often.” I was hoping he would want to. I had a lot of fun tonight, and I knew part of the reason was him.

“I agree; we should do this again. But for now, would you like to go for a walk with me?” he asked.

I laughed, “A walk, now? It’s almost midnight Edward.”

He chuckled, “I know it’s almost midnight, but I would like to go on a walk with you.”

I smiled, “Okay, just let me tell Alice and we can go.”

I left his side, walking over to Alice. Edward wanted to spend more time with me. Edward Masen wanted to go for a walk with me, and it was almost midnight. I didn’t know what to think, but I didn’t care.

“Alice, I’m going for a walk with Edward. I’ll be home later,” I smiled, jumping up and down as I turned around.

I walked back over to Edward, standing by his side once again. I looked at him; his eyes were still that gorgeous green color.

I smiled at him, “M’mkay, I’m ready; let’s walk.”

He grinned crookedly, “Perfect.”

Oh, how I loved that smile. This had to be one of the best nights of my life; it was almost perfect. I had fun with my friends, and I got to spend time with Edward. I don’t know everything felt so perfect with him. I don’t think I could ever stop thinking about him, and I never wanted to. He was like a God to me; I don’t know why he wanted to spend his time around me, but I wasn’t going to argue.

I was going to enjoy the rest of the night. It was after midnight, and I was going for a walk with Edward Masen.
