Bella’s POV

Edward was standing there. And he was mad. Very mad. And this wasn’t just any mad. This was the quiet mad. This meant he was seething and that when he blew up. You did not want to be near.

“Why the *beep* is there a *bleeping* ring on Bella’s finger! That just so *bleeping* happens to match yours Emmett?!?!” roared Edward. He was fuming. And yelling many words that no one ever needs to hear.

“Emmett, RUN!” yelled Alice, and Emmett was out the door. Edward was shaking too much to run after him right away.

Crap, Edward was gonna kill Emmett, I needed to do something! I decided to do a repeat of Trig Class.

I “fell” of the bed. “Ow! My ankle, it hurts.” I knew I had to work really hard to seem like I was in pain. Put my acting – or non acting – skills to the test.

Edward was by my side in a second. His face was etched with worry. “Bella, love, are you okay?!”

“My ankle, it hurts, a lot!” I moved, and fake winced. But Edward was thoroughly convinced I hurt my ankle. Suddenly Alice and Esme were laughing – they could tell I was faking it. Edward glared at them, and then he too realized my façade.

“That was not nice Bella” said Edward.

“Either is killing Emmett, Edward” I said, “He was just messing around with the marriage thing – I think. I don’t exactly remember it, too tired. Just let him explain.”

“Besides,” Alice giggled, “When you’re married in Vegas, you’re ONLY married in Vegas.”

Edward’s response was just shooting her a glare. Esme tried calming down the situation in that motherly way of hers. She shot me a sympathetic look.

Emmett decided he could come in now. “Excuse me Edward, I would like to help my wife up.” He said mockingly. Edward just growled and pulled me up. He still seemed uneasy around me.

I was glad I had this time with Emmett, because I don’t think I would ever be allowed to be alone with him again.

Alice walked up to my side and insisted I filled her in on what happened. I told her, and she was laughing the entire story. By the time I finished she was on the floor. If she had to breathe she might have actually died from laughter. Edward’s face was serious the whole time, but you could tell he found it amusing. Esme was laughing also, but in a calm, motherly fashion.

We climbed in the car and drove home, Alice, Edward and I were in the Mercedes , whilst Esme and Emmett were occupying the Jeep.

“So….” I started trying to break the silence. “How was the hunting trip?”

“Not as fun as your Vegas trip it seems.” said Edward in a gruff voice.

“Definitely not,” Said Alice giggling. “I wish you guys would have waited for me to come home. When I saw that you were leaving, I was just positively green with jealousy! They probably have great shopping in Vegas!”

Meanwhile, In the car with Emmett and Esme

“Emmett,that was a very mean thing to do to Edward.” Esme scolded.

Emmett scoffed, “You know what he’s planning to do to her anyways. I might as well get the good memories with Bella.”

“And that’s why I’m worried.” Esme said so quietly barely Emmett could hear. Emmett just looked at her quizzically, and turned the music loud as the stereo would allow.

Then he started shaking with laughter. Esme looked at him like he had a third eye. What was so funny? Emmett gestured to the stereo. She heard the song and laughed too.

Why are these lights so bright
Oh, did we get hitched last night, dressed up like Elvis,
And why, why am I wearing your class ring?
Don't call your mother
'Cause now we're partners in crime

Don't be a baby
Remember what you told me
Shut up and put your money where your mouth is
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas
Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes, now
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas

You got me into this
Information overload, situation lost control
Send out an S.O.S.
And get some cash out
We're gonna tear up the town

Don't be a baby
Remember what you told me (x3)
Told me, you told me, you told me
Shut up and put your money where your mouth is
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas
Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes, now
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas
Shake the glitter, shake, shake, shake the glitter, c'mon!
Give me some cash out baby
Give me some cash out, honey
