That's when I heard that voice that I missed for the past three years. "Emmett?"
Jasper's and my head snapped over toward were Emmett was fast. He was just staring wide-eye at the girl standing beside Ry. Then he whispered, "Bella?"
I stared at Emmett for a second then closed my eyes. "This isn't real. I'm probably just seeing things," I thought to myself. I took a deep breath and let it out slowly then I opened my eyes. There he was, still staring at me like he thought he was seeing things too.
"Bella? You okay?" Ryanne asked.
I looked at Ryanne, "Yeah I'm fine. Just.. Okay don't think I'm crazy or anything but," I pointed to where Emmett was standing, "Can you see him too?"
Ryanne looked over at where I was pointing and then back at me. She was quiet for a second then bust out laughing. "What? You think he's a ghost or something?" She said between laughs. "Of course I can see him. Oh, and I can't think you're crazy, because I already know you are."
I rolled my eyes at her. "So how do you two know each other?" I asked as I pointed from her to Emmett.
I couldn't help but notice Emmett grimaced as I asked that.
"Oh, um, well we really don't know each other, actually." She said. "He just came over here to tell me that his blonde friend over there wanted my number." She pointed. I looked over where she was pointing towards and saw Jasper and Edward staring with wide eyes this way.
I crossed my arms over my chest as I stared back at Emmett. "Oh really?" I raised my eyebrows at him.
Emmett winced, "Bella, I was just.. uhm.. I.."
"Why would you do that Emmett?"
Emmett sighed, "I'm sorry."
I shook my head, "Yeah, whatever." I grabbed Ryanne's hand, "Come on let's go, we're going to be late for class."
Ryanne stumbled behind me, looking very confused, as I pulled her into the building.
"What was that about?" She finally asked.
"Nothing. Guys are just jerks. I'll see you after our classes are over, okay?"
She nodded, "Okay." She walked into her class and I walked towards mine.
I sat down in my regular seat and took deep breathes. I was still kind of pissed off at what happened. "What the heck were they doing here anyways?" I thought to myself.
When I was finally calm enough, I dug in my bag and took out my notes for this class and started looking over them.
"Mind if I sit here?" I heard someone ask. I looked up and saw Jasper pointing to the seat next to mine.
I shook my head, "No, go ahead." I looked back down at my notes.
I heard Jasper sigh, "Bella, I'm sorry."
I looked up at him, "Why are you apologizing? You didn't do anything."
Jasper chuckled, "Well that's not actually true. Emmett was getting payback on me cause I accidentally broke his A Walk To Remember DVD."
I stared at Jasper in disbelief. "Emmett owns that DVD?"
Jasper nodded, "And he forces us to watch it a lot. Well he did, until I broke it."
"I'm kind of thinking you broke it on purpose now."
Jasper smiled. I laughed.
"Well I forgive you. And Emmett too, I guess. And I'm sorry I got overly mad." I shrugged, "I just don't like it when people try to hurt my friends."
Jasper nodded, "I know, Bella. I'll kick Emmett's butt once we get home for you."
I laughed, "Thanks Jasper."
Class went by fast once it started. I started putting my notes back into my bag and got out of my chair.
"It was good to see you again, Bella." Jasper said as he picked up his books.
I looked at him and smiled, "Same here."
"You know, Alice would be happy to see you also."
"Is she here too?" I asked as I slung my bag over my shoulder.
He shook his head, "No, not right now. Her and Rosalie are shopping, they only had a morning class today."
"Oh." I said as we started walking out of the classroom, "Well maybe I'll see her tomorrow then."
Jasper was about to reply when his phone started ringing. We stopped walking as he pulled his phone out, looked at the screen, then answered it.
"Alice." He said.
Jasper chuckled, "Okay, hang on. I'll ask her."
He looked at me, "Alice wants to know if you're busy tonight?"
I thought for a second, "Um, I don't know. Why?"
"She wants you to come over and visit."
I bit my bottom lip, "I'm not so sure that's a good idea."
Jasper listened to what Alice was saying for a second then pointed the phone toward me. "She wants to talk to you."
I took the phone, "Hi Alice."
"Bella! You have to come visit. It's not fair that Jasper and them got to see you today and I didn't."
"Uh.. Alice, I don't know.."
I sighed, "Fine. But I have to go put my stuff up and change first."
"Great! Jasper, Edward, and Emmett will just go with you to where you live. Okay? That way you can just ride with them here."
"Uh, I think I'll just follow them in my car. That way I can bring myself home and no one will have to go out of there way to bring me back."
"Okay, but you'll stay for dinner right? Esme missed cooking for you."
I laughed, "Sure, sure. See you later Alice."
I handed the phone back to Jasper.
He talked to Alice for a second more and then hung up.
Jasper laughed, "Okay, we have orders to follow you. So lead the way."
"I need to find Ryanne first and tell her."
Jasper laughed and pointed behind me.
I turned around confused and saw that Ryanne was leaning against one wall and Emmett and Edward was leaning on the other wall, all staring at Jasper and I.
I blushed. "Oh." I muttered. "Okay then."
I heard Emmett chuckle as I walked over to Ryanne, "How much did you hear?"
"Most of it." Ryanne laughed, "Come on, I'm going back to the dorm too."
She linked her arm in mine and we started walking toward our building.
She looked behind us at Jasper, Edward, and Emmett following and then whispered, "I can't believe you know them, they're all so hot!"
"Uh huh, you know they probably heard you."
She gaped at me and then blushed, "Great."
