Alice was on my right arm, and Rosalie was on the other side, we were walking through the isles of Wal Mart trying to find some food for our apartment. I was doing most of the talking, mostly about Edward. I could see Alice pretending to pay attention and be excited, while Rosalie was clearly annoyed.
“Can you stop talking about this Emund guy?” Rosalie snapped.
“Edward.” I said.
“Whatever.” Rosalie rolled her eyes, grabbing a box of granola bars of the shelf.
“Rose, stop being such a sour puss, just because Royce broke up with you, doesn't mean that you have to bring us all down with your mood.” Alice defended. “Continue Bella.” she motioned, Rosalie was glaring at her now.
“Well, just like I said, he is very tall. He was wearing a cap, so I couldn't really see his hair, but his smile is gorgeous, his teeth were so white and straight!” I said dreamily.
“Ooh, looks like someone has a crush...” Alice teased.
“Shut up.” I muttered, picking up a jar of pickles. Alice scrunched her nose up.
“Ew.” she mumbled.
I rolled my eyes and set the jar back down. “And I doubt we'll ever see each other again.” I said my tone defeated.
“You know what they say, fate brings them together.” Alice quoted. Rosalie was off in her own little world, she already let go of my arm and started wandering off by herself. Alice still clung to my arm.
“I'll believe it when I see it.” I said.
Alice smiled knowingly.
“Do you think he'll be back?” I wondered.
“He look like he had fun at rock climbing, so maybe.” Alice assured.
I stopped talking and continued to shop for necessities. I picked up a few bars of soap and some chips. Alice took a bunch of 'Lean Cuisines' and mini brownie bites. We saw Rosalie at the clothing section, she was holding up a top in front of her body, examining what she looked like in the mirror. I snuck up behind her and screamed in her ear.
“Boo!” I screeched.
Rosalie jumped dropping the top in the process. I started to laugh.
“You suck.” she mumbled, bending down to pick the top back up. “Have you stopped talking about Edgar yet?” she questioned.
“Edward.” I corrected again. Rosalie rolled her eyes, letting me know that she didn't really care. “Yes, I have, no lets go so we can for these and get back home.” I beckoned. Alice shrugged and followed me to the register. I put the items on the belt and watched it move up to the scanner. A really old guy was the cashier and he smiled at the sight of Rosalie.
“Hey.” he said, he was looking at Rose.
“Hi.” Rosalie replied awkwardly. I snickered.
“Wanna go out babe?” he asked. I almost gagged on my own spit, what was this guy? He looked sixty years old!
“Okay thats it.” Rosalie said, walking away. Alice followed her, they were probably on their way back to the car. The cashier frowned, and continued to scan.
“That'll be twenty bucks.” he said.
I pulled out a twenty dollar bill out of my pocket and handed it to him.
“I'll make it fifteen if your friend gives me a BJ.” he said.
“Ew perv!” I shouted. I grabbed the bags and ran. Rosalie was leaning against the hood of my car, she was looking at her nails when I came running.
“Whats wrong with you?” she asked.
“The pervert cashier guy wanted you to give him a BJ.” I said trying to catch my breath.
Rosalie looked confused. “Whats a BJ?” she asked.
I gave her an are-you-serious look. I leaned in and whispered in her ear. “Blow job.” I said.
“Ew!” she shrieked.
“I know.” I said opening the back doors and shoving the groceries in the backseat.
“What?” Alice asked popping her head out the passenger seat window.
“Nothing.” I said. Rosalie was now pretending to gag.
“Thats so gross.” Rose moaned.
I smirked and climbed into the drivers seat. The back doors opened and Rosalie climbed in without a word, her lips were starting to turn white.
“Breathe. Its not like he said it to you. I'm the one who has to live with that memory.” I said.
“Still, its really gross!”
“Will someone tell me whats going on?!” Alice demanded.
“The cashier told me to tell Rose to give him a blow job.” I explained.
“Ooh.” she teased. “I see how it is, your in to old guys now Rose.”
Rosalie growled. “Shut up you fuck—”
“Okay!” I sang turning the radio on to full blast. It wasn't easy starting a fight when you couldn't even hear each other. Alice settled into her seat, in the rear view mirror, I saw Rosalie huff and cross her arms over her chest. I let my mind wander while driving, Edward was on my mind the whole time. Somehow I just couldn't get him out of my head, its like he was glued to my memory.
“Bella watch out!” Alice yelled. I panicked and swerved the car, it made a screeching sound. I hit my head against the window, while the car started to spin out of control. The car finally stopped and I was thrown back against my seat.
“Fuck, what was that?” Rosalie groaned.
We were already on the side of the road, the other cars were zipping right by us.
“Alice, what was going to hit us?” I demanded.
Alice blushed. “Well, nothing was going to hit us, I just wanted to say that you were about to hit a squirrel.” she said sheepish.
I glared at her and started the car again. Once I was out of this car, I am going to kill my best friend for almost killing us.
