The ride to the theatre was silent aside from the purr of the engine. When we got the theatre Dylan went to buy tickets to see Hairspray. I thought he was just trying to have me talk first to see if he was in trouble for fighting with Edward but when we took our seats he said "I've noticed you've been pretty friendly with my dear cousin Edward" I didn't know what to say I didn't show any signs that I even thought he was alive so I just shrugged showing him that I still loved him and hated Edward. He smiled and we watched the movie. He laughed at some parts saying things like "I remember when that was the big thing to wear" I just let him have his fun and then after the movie we went for a walk on the beach. "Dylan?" I asked as the waves crashed on my feet. "Yeah Bella?" he answered curiosity bubbling in his voice. "Are you mad at me?" I asked in a rush. He picked me up and spun me around while laughing and he said "No Bella I can never be mad at you. I thought that you were going to break up with me and go out with my arrogant buffoon of a cousin." I laughed at this but only half heartedly even though Edward was not my favorite person he was still someone who had been nice to me and he dissevered better than to be called names. We walked some more and Dylan would a kiss on my cheek every so often. Then when we got to the end of the beach he said "Bella you are the most important thing in the world to me and I was wondering..." he dropped to one knee "would you... marry me?" My eyes got wide and my mouth went dry. In front of me Dylan was on one knee and with a small box in his hand. He opened the box and there was an elegant ring that was gold with diamonds surrrounding it and one huge on in the middle. For some reason my mind told me that saying yes would be the worst mistake of my life. I felt comfortable with Dylan but when he asked me the sense of ease that I felt when he was around vanished and was replaced by dread. Dylan sat there on his knee looking at me hopefully. I knew I needed to come up with something fast so I said "Umm... Dylan you know I love you but I just don't know if I want to get married right now. I want to go home and think it over." His face fell and turned into stone as he said "Okay I'll take you home" in a monotone. He ran off to get the car and I waited there I could have imagined it but I thought I saw hostility flash across his face when I turned him down. Unease spread through me again as I sat waiting for Dylan. He finally showed up with the car and the drive home was silent. When we got to my house he walked me to the front porch and kissed me goodnight. I let myself in and as soon as the door closed I felt Alice hugging me tightly. "Oh Bella I'm so glad your home." She squealed. "Why?" I asked a little upset because like I said I still didn't like the Cullen's. "Because." She said smugly. "Oh umm Edward wanted to see you in the parlor." She said a little more excited. "Okay" it sounded like a question. I walked into the parlor with Edward's piano in it and he was sitting at the bench working on a piece. "You wanted to see me?" I asked almost hissing. His hands stopped and he looked at me and said "Yes I did." I waited for him to go on but the didn't he seemed to be thinking of something to say. "Well?" I asked I noticed that my family and the Cullen's were gathering around. "Bella..." he finally said "I have always loved you and I never stopped. When I left you in Forks" he cringed "I was never the same but when you walked into this house and I saw you again I was never happier. So Bella I just wanted to know do you feel the same? And if you do will you... marry me?" My mouth dropped open and I stood there dumbstruck. He had dropped to one knee and held open a box with a small silver band with a large diamond in the middle and smaller ones on the sides of it. I stood there with my mouth open and said "I can't take this one proposal is enough for one night." And was about to storm of to my room again when Edward grabbed my arm and asked "What do you mean one proposal is enough for one night?" "That's right you don't know what happened on my date with Dylan." I said coming back down from the hysterics I was in. The entire coven was looking at me oddly. "Well tonight after the movies Dylan and I went for a walk along the beach and he asked me to marry him. I told him I would think about it and he took me home." I finished and Edward yelled "YES!" Alice shot him a dirty look and asked me "Oh well why didn't you say yes to him? I'm not saying that I would have agreed but you always say you love him and well I thought that you would have said yes." "Well I wasn't sure why I didn't say yes. I just felt weird right then and I said no. I don't know what came over me." I answered not sure why I was explaining this to the people I hated. Everyone looked thoughtful for a moment when Jamie said "Well I suppose now looking at the events that just happened it wasn't such a good idea to have invited the Profit's over for dance contest huh?" I just stared at her then groaned and went to go slip into some sweats and read Pride and Prejudice yet again. The next day was the dance contest. The Cullen's and Profit's got along perfectly besides Edward and Dylan of course and everyone was excited about who I would choose to be my dance partner considering they would all dance with their spouses. I wanted to stay in my room but no I needed to dance. All because of that stupid coven bonding thingy that Jamie came up with. There was a knock on the door and all of the Profit's came in including Dylan who surprisingly wasn't glaring at me but at Emma. Esme walked up on stage and said "Okay now that everyone is here we are going to play musical dance partner. The rules are when the music starts go find someone to dance with. Ready. GO!" the music started and Dylan and Edward ran vampire speed toward me. I stood there knowing that this would be one of the toughest choices of my life. I may not like Edward but then why did I want to dance with him? And Dylan picked me up and put me together again so why wouldn't I choose him? I went back and forth in a mental tennis match when I closed my eyes and turned toward...
