Chapter 11 Halloween A couple of weeks later Carrie POV "Carrie. Carrie. Hey Carrie wake up." I heard someone whisper in my ear and trying to shake me awake. I sat up and rubbed the sleep out of my eyes. "About time you got up. Come on its Halloween and we have a bunch of work to do." Alice then turned around and crawled out and I followed soon after. After I got out Alice grabbed me and slung me on her back then took off through the woods toward the Cullen house. It was about five in the morning. We entered the house and Esme was there with breakfast made for me. I ate then hopped in the shower and brushed my teeth. I had Alice put her costume on first. It was almost a gothic pixie look, but I turned away from black and tried to add more color; it wasn't the normal pixie look. The top was a deep purple in color, long, off the shoulder bell sleeves. It was tight across the bust then flowed out down to the hips. There was a black skirt that came down to mid thigh. Underneath she was wearing tights that had alternating bands of green and light green. On her feet were black three inch heels. Along with her costume was a pair of wings. The wings came up in inch above her shoulders down to her hips. They extended around three inches past her arms. The wings were made of several 'feather' shaped parts that were outlined in black, green in color and had purple spots. Her makeup consisted of rose pink lip gloss and eye shadow with sparkles and a very light blush. I sprayed some glitter into her hair also. Her nails were painted purple. After I did some touch ups and asked Rosalie if she got the plants. She nodded then got into her costume. It was a strapless dress that came down to mid thigh, but within dress code. It was a light green color and covered in sheer cut outs overlapping in layers so the end result was different shades of green. The cut outs were shaped like leaves and had gold stitching for the veins. On the back she had white shear wings the same size as Alice's. She had three gold bracelets on each wrist and a simple gold chained necklace. On her feet were gold three inch strap heels. The straps crisscrossed up to almost her knees. Her nails were done in French tips. Her lips were colored with pink lip gloss. She had a light green eye shadow, light blush, and sparkles on the cheeks and around the eyes. Her hair was slightly curled. I took the top half of her hair, separated it into two parts, twisted them and pinned them back. I took the plants, which were small string vines with small and large white flowers, and braided a few together and thread them through Rose's hair and made a crown with them around her hair. I pinned a few in her hair so that they hung down. The plants had been sprayed with a substance to make sure that they would not die and stay together. It was my turn next. Alice and Rose came out with a red and black gown. It was a dark red down the front and black on the sides and back. It was strapless and reached all the way to the floor and the skirt was slightly puffy like a ball gown. There were small silver buttons going along where the black and red met. Across the bodice the red satin is covered by black lace. There were detached black arm sleeves; they went from my wrists to my mid upper arm. There was red sheer fabric tacked to three places on the sleeves, the top, bottom and middle. The fabric went from one sleeve to another; it was about eight feet in length. It attached to the dress in two places; at the waist and between the shoulders, mid way on the fabric. Alice pulled my hair back into a sloppy bun with a long fountain affect. For jewelry I wore a red jeweled black choker. For make up the put some powder on my exposed skin so that I would have the same complexion as them. Rose put dark red almost black lip stick on my lips and eye shadow that was a more of a red, but still dark. She also put some black eye liner and mascara on. My nails were painted a blood red. Alice pinned a black rose behind my right ear. I wore black hose and black two/three inch heels. "Hang on I want to add one more thing," I said. I grabbed my henna kit that I bought at the mall and drew a bite mark on the left side of my neck where it meets my shoulder. "After about an hour or so I can peel this away and it will leave behind a tattoo." Rosalie and Alice complained that it didn't smell too good, which it doesn't, and they sprayed some perfume on my neck, wrists and dress. "Wow I absolutely love it," I praised. "I feel like a princess. This is one reason why I love Halloween." "You didn't do too badly of a job yourself Carrie. These costumes are so cute, and Rose just looks so sexy." Alice said. "Now are you sure about wearing so little Rosalie. I could whip something more up to go with it." I said. "No I'm fine. Come on let's go Esme wants to take pictures and we need to get to school." she said. We went down and Esme took like fifty photos she said she will get more after school when we were all together. We went out and got into Rosalie's car. I got into the back passenger seat behind Alice and we went on our way to school. I pulled the 'glue' of the henna off as we pulled in and light marks were left behind, which will darken as time passes. We pulled in next to Edward's car; as we pulled in the guys got out. Jasper was dressed up as an elf from The Lord of the Rings. He was dressed all in green. He had green tights, shoes and tunic. He even had the fellowship cape with leaf brooch and a bow and a quiver full of white feather arrows strapped to his back. He even had pointed ears. Emmett was dressed as Viktor Krum from Harry Potter. He was wearing the brown Drumstag uniform that they wore when the first arrived at Hogwarts. He was even wearing the fur lined coat and hat and carrying a staff. Edwards costume however had me feeling… warmer than usual. He was dressed as a vampire. He was wearing a white, long sleeved billowy shirt that had the top three button undone. I could see a good part of his exposed chest. A burgundy vest was over the shirt with gold buttons and the bottom two sets of buttons fastened. He was wearing black pants that were tucked into his boot. The boots were black that came up to almost his knees. The boots had a two inch dark grey cuff. He was also wearing a cape that had a gold chain that came across his front. The outside of the cape was black and the inside was burgundy. Emmett helped Rose out the car, Jasper helped Alice and Edward helped me. "My lady," Edward bowed to me, "will you allow me to be your escort today?" "Of course my kind sir," I replied while I curtsied. He offered his arm to me with a smile. I returned his smile and took the offered arm. Rose and Emmett walked toward the school first, followed shortly by Alice and Jasper, and soon after by Edward and I. It got quiet as we approached. I could feel everyone's eyes on us. I could hear hushed whispers as we walked by. Then I heard the cat calls start. I smirked a bit at that. I knew that they were directed mostly to Rosalie due to what she was wearing. I felt some pride about that. Edward leaned down and said in my ear, "You do realize that some of those calls are directed to you, don't you." I blushed but looked at him with a slightly shocked and surprised expression, "You must be mistaken, and I couldn't possibly look attractive." I said. "You are the one mistaken, Carrie, for you forget that I know what they are thinking. You are also mistaken because I think that you look absolutely stunning." He said looking into my eyes. I blushed so hard that I thought that my face was on fire. Edward chuckled and kissed the back of my hand. Edward sure has a way with words. Since the classes were shortened due to the assembly and party we didn't do anything but talk during class, and we didn't need any books either. In English Jessica, Mike and Eric asked me where the Cullen's and I got our costumes from. I told them that I made Alice's and Rosalie's, and that they made mine and Edward's. When they didn't believe that I made the costumes I showed them my sketches. In Latin Emmett was pretending that he was Viktor and quoting the Harry Potter movies. In chemistry the teacher made us model our costumes and again people were surprised that I made Rosalie's costume; they didn't seemed surprised that Alice and Rose made mine. Edward was there to escort me to class. In biology Edward and I just stood next to each other leaning against my table. Bella came in and sat on her table so that she was facing us. "Wow, Edward, I've never seen you show so much skin at school before," Bella said. Her eyes kept darting toward Edward's bare chest. "So what are you supposed to be exactly?" "Isn't it obvious, I am a vampire, and Carrie here is a vampiress," Edward said in an unemotional voice. "So what are you dressed up as Bella," I asked. "A vampire also," she replied. Bella was dressed in a red and purple clinging dress and tennis shoes. The dress had a broad strip of red down the front the rest was purple. The sleeves were tight all the way down to the wrist there was a foot of fabric hanging down. The inside of the sleeve was red. The dress had a high collar that came up to the back of her head; the inside of which was also red. Her exposed skin was bone white and the area around her eyes was painted a dark grey. She had a bat necklace on and bright red lip stick and think black eye liner. Her nails were painted black and she had vampire fangs in her mouth with some red paint from the corner of her mouth to her chin. When the bell rang Edward wrapped his arm around my waist and he led me to the cafeteria where we met up with the others. We talked and joked around a bit and Emmett kept on thanking me on Rosalie's costume and Rose would hit him along side of the head each time. Alice brought a camera out of nowhere and we started taking pictures of each other in various poses. There were pictures of Edward and me embracing and acting like he was going to bite me; pictures of Jasper chasing Alice; Emmett on his knees before Rose, and various other pairings. We each put our votes in for best costumes and who should be the king and queen of Halloween. Math class was like the others, and in gym we still danced as a final practice because the second dance after the king and queen's everyone was supposed to dance, and I mean ball room dancing. Afterwards we were dismissed to go to the larger gym/dance hall to await the results of the voting. Rose got best girls costume, Alice and Jasper got best Couple; Emmett got best guys costume from a movie. The only thing that was left to announce was who was voted the king and queen of Halloween. "Alright students settle down, before we announce this year's king and queen please give another round of applause to our category winners. Now the couple voted the king and queen won by a landside, over two thirds of the school voted for them and was a complete surprise. This year's king and queen of Halloween are," the principal opened an envelope and pulled out a card. He stood there in silence to build up the suspense. Some students started yelling at him to hurry up. "This year's King and Queen of Halloween are … Edward Cullen and Carrie…" the ending was awkward because I have no last name on file. When I heard this I completely froze. I was completely shocked, I couldn't move. Edward winning I could understand, but me. I've never won anything. Alice was grinning at me and hugging me. The rest of the Cullen's were hugged me also. I sat there gaping like a fish thinking that there must be some sort of mistake. Edward just picked me up bridle style and carried me down to the middle of the floor and set me on my feet. "Edward there must be some sort of mistake, I couldn't have possibly won." I said. "There is no mistake Carrie looked at the card," he said and he handed me the card. There written in big, bold fancy text was: King and Queen of Halloween 2007Edward Cullen & Carrie ------ As I realized this wasn't a dream a huge smile spread across my face. I look up at Edward and wrapped my arms around him in a tight bear hug. He hugged me back and when he pulled away he grabbed me by my waist, picked me up and swung me around. My hands were on his shoulders, as we were spinning I threw my head back and let happy laughter escape into the air. When he sat me down we turned and faced the principal who placed a crown upon Edward's head and a tiara upon mine. "Now for the first dance of the King and Queen." the principal said. He and the other staff stepped away and the gym got quiet. "Don't worry Carrie, it's just you and me and no one else." Edward said as he held one hand and put the other on my waist. Over the speakers Aerosmith's I Don't Want to Miss A Thing began to play. I was lost in Edward's eyes as we started to dance. It was just me and him. About half way through I realized that I was singing along with the music so I stopped. "Don't stop, you sound wonderful," Edward said as he pulled me even closer. So I continued with a smile on my face. "…I don't wanna close my eyes/ I don't wanna fall asleep/ 'Cause I'd miss you, baby/ And I don't wanna miss a thing/ 'Cause even when I dream of you/ The sweetest dream would never do/ I'd still miss you, baby/ And I don't wanna miss a thing/ I don't wanna miss one smile/ I don't wanna miss one kiss/…" Edward somehow managed to put his forehead against mine and he closed his eyes. I continued to sing as we danced. He brought his hand up from my waist and put it along side my face and stroked my cheek with his thumb. As the song finished he stopped moving and slowly moved his lips closer to mine until he finally captured them right as the last chord was sound. I don't know how long we kissed for but I broke it off as the cat calls and other various cheers reached my ears. When I realized that we were in the gym with the whole school watching I buried my face in his chest to hide the blushing and he just wrapped his arms tighter around me. "And with that let the Forks High Halloween party begin," the principal said with balloons and confetti falling down on the dance floor. When the lights went off the party lights and music came on. This was shaping up to be the best day of my life. Not only did I get to dress up on Halloween, and look pretty good doing it, I also get my first kiss. This kind of thing never happens to me. Edward was my first kiss, and I'm still tingling from the sensation of his lips against mine. I never expected to receive a kiss, especially from someone so handsome. I feel as though something important has happened, but I'm not sure what. Plus I'm at a school dance. I've never been to a school dance before. The entire time I was dancing with Edward and he never once let go of me. It felt nice, like I was loved, like I belonged, and I've never been happier. The only time that Edward ever let go of me is when I danced with Alice and Rose. I even danced a little bit with Emmett and Jasper, but mainly I just danced with Edward. He even passed up a chance to dance with Bella. I wouldn't have minded if he did, he seems different than when we first met. Edward doesn't seem as open with Bella as he used to when I first moved here. I wonder what happened to make him change. They are friends, right? So what is different? Anyways, I am having a blast, and there is no homework tonight, a definite plus. We could leave at any time since technically there are no classes being held, so the group and I go back to Cullen Manor as I like to call it. I had a few hours before I had to go to work so we had our own little party. Carlisle was even there. "My Carrie, don't you just look ravishing." Carlisle said when he caught sight of me. "I can't believe I look like this. I would never believe that I would look this good especially with…" I trailed off because I couldn't bring myself to continue with my thought. Edward wrapped his arms around me from behind, pulling me to his chest. I still cannot get over just how right it feels being here in his arms surrounded by his family. I could almost imagine me being a part of this amazing family. And again I thank whatever God it was that pointed my life down this path; I really liked the feeling of belonging somewhere. No that's not right not belonging somewhere, but belonging here with the Cullen's. "Of course you're beautiful Carrie." Esme said. "Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. If they can't see it than they are blind." Edward tightened his grip around me wordlessly agreeing with her. "Anyways, all hail the queen of Halloween!" Emmett said to brighten the moment. And at that moment Alice came up behind me and placed a paper crown on my head and placed another one in my hands. "Queen," I said, "I think I like the sound of that. Of course, what is a queen without her ladies in waiting? Lady Rosalie, Lady Alice, what sayest thou?" "A queen such as thou certainly deserves only the best for thy husband and king, milady." Alice said, going along with my playful mood. "How about this gentleman," Rosalie said, pulling Emmett forward by his arm, "he certainly looks strong milady, along with striking features." I stepped forward and circled around, looking him up and down. "He certainly is, however; he is spoken for, is he not?" I asked. My answer was Emmett wrapping his arm around Rosalie. I turned to Jasper, "You good sir, are fair looking and appear to have a strong mind, certainly you could be king." "Alas fair lady; I too am also spoken for. My heart belongs to your fair lady in waiting, the Lady Alice." he replied with a bow. I turned to Esme, "Dear Lady Esme, surely there is a handsome, strong, charming, and brilliant gentleman, with whom I can share my rein with." "I do. May I introduce to you my Lord Carlisle? He has a son who is available and I believe he would be perfect as your king," she said with a small coy smile. Edward came up to me with a charming smile on his face. He stopped a couple of feet before me, grabbed my hand, bowed, and kissed the back of my hand. All the while he never broke eye contact with me. I think I felt my knees go weak. As he stood up straight I proceeded to look him over. I walked around him once and as I walked around him again, I softly, barely touching ran my fingers up from his left arm, across his chest and down his right arm. As I did this I was watching his eyes and they stared back into my own. As I walked behind him I ran my hand across his shoulders. When I was in front of him again I asked, "How about you, noble sir, are you spoken for?" "Not as far as I know." Edward replied. I turned back to the girls, "What do you think ladies?" Alice and Rosalie looked at each other, then me and grinned. I turned to Esme and the others; they all had smiles on their face. "I guess you will just have to do then." I stepped toward Edward and held the crown toward him. "I choose you Sir Edward Cullen to be my king." When I reached up to place the crown on his head Edward picked me up by my waist so that I could more easily complete my task. After I placed the crown upon his head I placed my hands on his shoulders, but instead of putting me down he pulled me closer and wrapped his arms around me. I ended up wrapping my arms somewhat around his head. My position was that I was sort of sitting on his arms and his head was about even with my chest. "So what was so important about re-establishing the fact that I am the King of Halloween," Edward asked. I leaned down so that our foreheads were almost touching, "I chose you this time," I said in a whisper knowing that he as well as everyone else heard me perfectly. "All hail the King and Queen of Halloween!" Emmett shouted. "All hail!" everyone responded. And with that we got back to our party with Esme taking a lot of pictures. After I changed so that I could go to work I was informed that they would not be at school for the next two days for the news was calling for sunshine. "Someday I'll see you guys sparkle," I told them teasingly. Edward took me to work and said he'll be back later to pick me up. Work went on as the same as always. People from school congratulated me on being voted Queen of Halloween and asked me more questions about the costumes. After work Edward picked me up and took me to the manor. There Esme had made me a small royal feast as celebration. After dinner Edward ran me home and left after giving me a kiss on the cheek and a 'farewell my queen.' It was eleven before I was dismissed. When I got back to my den there were two small packages on my bed. They were both framed photo graphs; one was of Edward and I in our costumes, the other was of all of us in our costumes and Carlisle and Esme. I went to sleep that night with a smile on my face, thinking of all the fun I had and the thought that I had my first kiss. Edward's POV I'm not sure why we are doing this; we usually don't participate in Halloween, but we can't seem to deny Carrie this. Just seeing her excitement over the matter, I and apparently the others also wanted her to keep the smile on her face. Emmett was dressing as Viktor Krum from the Harry Potter movies. Jasper was dressing as a forest elf from The Lord of the Rings. I was thinking as dressing up as Cedric Diggory during the Yule Ball, but Alice and Rose said that they were planning my costume. We never found out what the girls were planning for their costumes, they were somehow blocking me. Carrie's mind has been becoming clearer, but she too is somehow able to block me. What I have seen of her thoughts is somewhat boggling; her mind works in very complex ways. "So what are you girls dressing up as anyway?" I asked. "You'll find out when we get to school, just like with you, except with you Edward." Alice said. "Then you can see what Carrie designed." "That is going to be interesting to see what she came up with." Emmett said. Jasper agreed with him. I was handed my costume and left to go put it on. 'They have me dressing up as a vampire, how ironic.' It was a classic black and red male vampire outfit; however, it showed an awful lot of skin. When I went back out to the others I asked the girls, "Is this a good idea, showing this much skin." "Don't worry about it Edward." Rose said. "Besides compared to you I'll be practically naked, and I'm sure Carrie will appreciate the view." Emmett, Jasper and I stared at Rosalie when she said that she would be close to naked. Emmett had a lecherous grin starting to spread across his face; Rosalie smacked him along side of his head when she saw that. "Just what does Carrie have you wearing," he asked. "You'll see." she replied in a sing song tone with a teasing smile. The girls left so the others could get into their costumes and not spoil the surprise. The boys and I left in our car to go to school and I saw Alice run off toward Carrie's place. We had a couple of hours wait, but something told me that it was going to be worth it. As I thought when school was close to getting started I saw Rosalie's vehicle pull into next to ours. The boys and I got out; I could tell that we were already drawing attention from the other students. I could read that they were surprised that we dressed up. If we had their attention, the girl's costumes would definitely get it. Emmett went to the driver's side and help Rosalie out of the car, and I was shocked at what she was wearing. She was right when she said that compared to me. I had to block out Emmett's thoughts because they were going somewhere that I didn't want to be. The last thing I heard was that he had to thank Carrie for what she designed. I forgot that the costume was made by Carrie, and I'm surprised that such a shy girl such as her could come up with something as revealing and sexy as that. Alice's costume was something closer to what I was expecting. The costume was playful like Alice is, but it was slightly different and unusual. It was kind of hard to explain. Jasper helped her out of the vehicle. I went to the back passenger side door and opened it. I was shocked at what I saw. There was Carrie, looking absolutely stunning. As I helped her out of the vehicle I drank in her form. She was wearing something akin to a ball gown. It was black and red in color, the way that she looked, it was almost as if she stepped straight out of an ancient portrait. Even her scars seemed to add to her beauty. She had some makeup on her skin to make it closer to ours. I felt a tingling sensation travel up and down my spine and warmth I have not expected to feel spread throughout my body. If my heart was beating it would have skipped a few beats and be pounding wildly. My eyes were drawn to some marks by her neck. They appeared to be bite marks. When I realized this I felt a thirst that I have never felt before. It was different from the usual thirst; it was a different sort of hunger that I felt. I wanted to sink my teeth right where the mark was while she was screaming my name. I shook that off, bowed to her and said, "My lady, will you allow me to be your escort today?" "Of course my kind sir," she replied with a curtsy. Her face was slightly flushed as she took in my costume. I offered her my arm with a smile, which she took and returned. Rose and Emmett walked toward the school first, followed shortly by Alice and Jasper, and soon after by us. It was quite as we headed toward the school. I could hear their thoughts about how as usual we looked perfect. They were surprised by the girl on my arm. It took them a little bit for them to figure out that the girl was Carrie. Someone then started releasing cat calls. I could feel pride in Carrie's mind as they started. She was thinking about how she did do a good job on Rosalie's outfit. I leaned down and said into her ear, "You do realize that some of the cat calls are directed to you, don't you." She blushed and looked at me with a slightly shocked and surprised expression, "You must be mistaken, and I couldn't possibly look attractive." she said. "You are the one mistaken, Carrie, for you forget that I know what they are thinking. You are also mistaken because I think that you look absolutely stunning." I said looking into her eyes. She blushed even more; it's so entertaining to watch her blush and to make her blush. I chuckled and kissed the back of her hand, then escorted her to her English class. I escorted her to the classes that I usually do. She seemed relieved that she didn't have to carry anything around since the teachers told us that we didn't need anything today. In all my classes, the girls were staring at me more than usual, probably because they could see my chest. As usual I walked with Carrie to biology. We were just leaning against her table when Bella came in. She walked to her desk in front of us and put her things around. She was carrying a couple of books and some candy bags. She glanced at me and did a double take. She slowly looked me up and down, her eyes wide. "Wow, Edward, I've never seen you show so much skin at school before," she said. Her eyes kept darting toward my bare chest. "So what are you supposed to be exactly?" "Isn't it obvious, I am a vampire, and Carrie here is a vampiress," I said in an unemotional voice, much like how Carrie used to speak. I didn't feel talking to her, she stunk of that werewolf. It smells as if they had been sleeping together last night. Bella's eyes widened when I said this. She turned her eyes toward Carrie and the widened more as she looked at her. As she looked Carrie over her eyes narrowed slightly. Was she jealous? "So what are you dressed up as Bella," Carrie asked. "A vampire also," she replied. I looked over her attire. It looked like some cheap outfit that she got at a costume store. Her whole appearance was a bit of an eye sore. The colors clashed and her makeup was too heavy and covering the natural beauty that she possessed. The rest of class passed by without much more happening. When the bell rung I wrapped my arm around Carrie and we walked to the cafeteria. As usual I made sure that she ate something. Alice brought out a camera and we started to take pictures of each other. I even posed with Carrie like I was going to bite her. It was hard to resist, she looked so tempting. Since she has been with us I have come to realize that with her being outdoors so much her scent is much like that of a forest. There is always a hint of wild flowers in a fresh breeze and rain. The perfume that she wore which smelled similar to baby powder made it smell softer, more delicate. In gym it was like a smaller party. Carrie and I danced together for, as the teacher said, final practice. I have come to find out that Carrie enjoys dancing as well as music. She seems more carefree when she is dancing, and she uses music to express herself. Certain music accompanies her mood. When she is at the manor she often comes to my room and borrows a bunch of Cds. It was finally time for the assembly. The principal made a speech about how this is the first annual Halloween contest and went on to explain the contest again. He went to announce the winners. "Alright students settle down, before we announce this year's king and queen please give another round of applause to our category winners. Now the couple voted the king and queen won by a landside, over two thirds of the school voted for them and was a complete surprise. This year's king and queen of Halloween are," the principal opened an envelope and pulled out a card. He stood there in silence to build up the suspense. Some students started yelling at him to hurry up. "This year's King and Queen of Halloween are … Edward Cullen and Carrie…" I smiled at that, for I expected it. Carrie however looked completely shocked. The others hugged her and congratulated her, but she seemed unresponsive. I chuckled at that, reached down and picked her up bridle style then carried her down to the middle of the floor. I showed her the card to prove that it was real, that she was my queen. I watched as a huge smile spread across her face. She then looked up at me with stars in her eyes and wrapped her arms around me in a fierce embrace. I wrapped my arms around her as well. I pulled away and grasped her waist, picked her up and spun her around. I watched mesmerized as happy laughter flowed from her mouth. I vowed that I will hear more of that wondrous sound coming from her. I placed her on her feet again and crowns were placed upon our heads. "Now for the first dance of the King and Queen." the principal said. He and the other staff stepped away and the gym got quiet. "Don't worry Carrie, it's just you and me and no one else." I said as I held one hand and put the other on her waist. Over the speakers Aerosmith's I Don't Want to Miss A Thing began to play. I was lost in Carrie's eyes as we started to dance. I listened as she softly started to sing along with the song and her eyes would drift close from time to time. About half way through she seemed realized that she was singing along with the music and stopped. "Don't stop, you sound wonderful," I told her as I pulled her even closer. She continued with a smile on her face. "…I don't wanna close my eyes/ I don't wanna fall asleep/ 'Cause I'd miss you, baby/ And I don't wanna miss a thing/ 'Cause even when I dream of you/ The sweetest dream would never do/ I'd still miss you, baby/ And I don't wanna miss a thing/ I don't wanna miss one smile/ I don't wanna miss one kiss/…" With the heels she was wearing I was able to put my forehead against hers and closed my eyes. She continued to sing as we danced. I brought my hand up from Carrie's waist and put it alongside her face and stroked her cheek with my thumb. I watched as she moved and danced with her eyes closed. As the song finished I stopped moving and slowly moved my lips closer to hers and finally captured them right as the last chord was sound. I don't know why I did it, but I know that it felt right to do so. I'm not sure how long we kissed for but she broke it off as the cat calls and other various cheers reached our ears. Carrie seemed to remember that we were in the gym with the whole school watching. She buried her face in my chest in embarrassment. I just wrapped my arms tighter around her. The thought that I heard from the others was, 'About time.' "And with that let the Forks High Halloween party begin," the principal said with balloons and confetti falling down on the dance for and the lights went off and the party lights and music came on. We left the party early and went back to the manor. We were going to have our own little party there. Carlisle even took the afternoon off so that he could see our costumes. I watched as Carlisle complemented her. I was there to comfort her when her thoughts turned to her past. I then watched as Carrie played around with the girls about who should be her king. "Dear Lady Esme, surely there is a handsome, strong, charming, and brilliant gentleman, with whom I can share my rein with." "I do. May I introduce to you my Lord Carlisle? He has a son who is available and I believe he would be perfect as your king." I went up to Carrie and greeted her in a noble fashion, never breaking eye contact. She looked me over then around me. She then softly, barely touching ran her fingers up my left arm, across my chest and down my right arm. A trail of fire was left in their wake. As she did this I was watching her eyes and they stared back into my own. She walked behind me and ran her hand across my shoulders. A chill went down my spine and fire across my shoulders. "How about you, noble sir, are you spoken for?" "Not as far as I know." I replied. She turned to the girls, "What do you think ladies?" Alice and Rosalie looked at each other, then her and grinned. Then she turned to Esme and the others; they all had smiles on their face. "I guess you will just have to do then." She stepped toward me and held the crown toward me. "I choose you Sir Edward Cullen to be my king." She reached up to place the crown on my head I picked her up by her waist so that she could reach better. After she placed the crown upon my head I pulled her closer and wrapped my arms around her. Carrie had her arms loose around my head. My head was even with her chest and she was sitting in my arms. "So what was so important about re-establishing the fact that I am the King of Halloween," I asked. She leaned down so that our foreheads were almost touching, "I chose you this time," she said in a quiet whisper. "All hail the King and Queen of Halloween!" Emmett shouted. "All hail!" everyone responded. And with that we got back to our party with Esme taking a lot of pictures. There was sunshine predicted for the next two days so we told Carrie that we would not be at school. We were going hunting for the weekend because we haven't done that in a while. "Someday I'll see you guys sparkle," Carrie said teasingly. I took her to work after she changed, and picked her up afterwards. When I dropped her off I told her 'Farewell my Queen.' On my way back home I came to the conclusion that I'm falling in love with Carrie. Again it's not the same as with Bella but the feeling is still there. I've been trying my hardest to get over Bella, but Carrie has been slowly filling in that void in her own special way. I just want to see her happy. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE REVIEW I'M BEGGING YOU ^_^
