Chapter 5

"Did you have a good day at school Edward?" My mom asked as I walked into the kitchen after Shane had dropped me off, grabbing a soda.

"Uh… sure?"

"You don’t remember any of it do you?"

"Not a bit."

"Well, see if you can remember this, I was thinking about having a barbeque tomorrow, everyone is bringing some of their friends, why don’t you invite yours. You know the ones I know everything about and yet have never met." Esme said, as she stirred, whatever she was stirring.

"Uh, sure I’ll text them right now, Mom." I pulled out the phone I got for Christmas, scared for my life if I forgot, or just didn’t ask them. I was kind of scared to invite them over, Cat can be uh… well she’s not exactly popular with rents. Maybe Shane can balance her out.

I text Shane and Bella to invite them, and asked them to send it on to Cat since she didn’t have a cell phone. She didn’t believe in them. Her view being that ‘we didn’t have ‘em twenty years ago, we don’t need them now.’

Ya sur B is askin C rite now. Shane text me back. Cat says she’ll ask her mom & char. Says I can come if I get my room clean. =).Bella sent me back, I smiled when I got the text, and immediately sent Shane a message:

E: hey, its not good to ask someone out ova txt rite?

S: Wow, Eds didnt kno u swung that way in flattered.

E: Not u dip shit, B!

S: Oh, well that’s a shot to my self esteem, thx

E: Shane…

S: No don’t bad manners and all that.

E: Hm… that’s wat I thought, well that ruins my idea.

S: Well u can still lik flirt ova txt rite?

E: Idk can u?

S: Well sur

E: Wat shud I say?

S: IDK!

E: Me neither

S: Well Crapola.

I walked over to the couch in the living room plopping down, and thinking about what I could text Bella. My phone buzzed in my hand when I got another text from Shane.

S: Did u send her the same txt u sent me?

E: Yea

S: then say something bout the bar-b-q

E: Like wat?

S: Idk, how bout… well shit I c ur prob

E: Yea no kidding

"Hey Em." I said out loud, to Emmett who was sitting on the couch next to me playing some video game.

"Yeah?"

"What do you text a girl u like?" I asked, hoping to god that he wouldn’t make fun of me. He laughed, wish not granted.

"Eddie’s got a crush, that’s so hilarious." Rub it in why don’t ya?

"Shut it. Come on man, what do you text Rose. And don’t call me Eddie!"

"That’s not the same. We’re together. I’m guessing your not together with this girl, am I right?"

"Yes, unfortunately."

"I got nothing for you dude. Who’s the poor girl anyway?"

"The brunette girl I hang out with, Bella."

"You guys fit well," Alice said, coming down the stairs, and dropping down on the couch to the right of us. Emmett nodded in agreement, to my surprise.

"Really?" I asked, not wanting to get my hopes, I was pretty sure one of them was about to come out and say ‘April Fools’ or something similar, considering that it was no where near April. Wow, I’m kind of a downer, I need a confidence boost.

"Yup, she totally digs you too." Emmett said. I couldn’t help but laugh, not only at his choice of words, but at the possibility of Bella liking me, as much as he says.

"Your confidence sucks." Alice said. "Just ask her out, what could go wrong other then her saying no?"

"Well there is ‘hell no’, ‘are you crazy’ or her never speaking to him again," Emmett said, probably trying to make a joke, I didn’t appreciate it.

"That’s helpful." I muttered, climbing up the stairs. Plopping down on my bed, and drowning myself in AFI’s Sing the Sorrow CD. Falling asleep, around the sixth track.

----------------------------

Bella and I were in a meadow, sitting down on the ground, listening to her iPod. No matter how hard I tried I couldn’t remember how I got here…

Bella turned towards me and smiled, I smiled back. She face turned dark, and in a seconds notice she was Shane saying that we needed to ‘grow a pair‘. Then Emmet, ‘She totally digs you’. Alice ‘What’s the worse that can happen?’ Emmett again, ‘she could never talk to you again.’

Everything Else faded away and the heads stayed, circling around me, saying what they’d said before over and over again. Bella’s head just staying out right in front of me smiling.

-----------------------------

I woke up sweating, clutching my head, relieved that it was just a dream but still scared out of my mind.

"Shit," I groaned, "I need to stop drinking Soda before bed."
