"I will have your truck finished by the end of the week, so can you please just go with it and get a move on!" Emma shouted up the stairs for the fifth time this morning. I sighed and grabbed my bag before making my way downstairs.
Edward left earlier. After we took a tour around the house last night, Emma showed us the guest room that I was staying in. It was light blue and really open. The wall facing the back yard was made of glass and one pane actually slides to the side so you could get onto a large balcony overlooking the yard. Inside the room was a king sized bed with a light blue quilt with four black posts at the corners of the bed. There was a large desk and bookcase in the room and two doors. One led to the closet while the other to an en-suite bathroom.
I finally made it down stairs where Emma was waiting with some orange juice and cereal bar in hand. I gulped down both and quickly headed out the door, followed by Emma. I looked up to see a sleek black BMW M3 on the drive. I looked at Emma with a raised eyebrow.
"Whose car is this and why are we driving it?" I asked while Emma went round to open my door.
"Well the cars mine and we are using it because the Volvo's engine needs a rest after yesterday's events." I just stared at Emma while she just shrugged her shoulders. She then ran off to the garage and was back within seconds holding a medium sized package. "I'd forgotten about this…" she muttered before she opened the package and threw the box on to the porch. I walked over to her to see what she was holding. It was a rectangular shaped plaque and Emma was looking down at it with a crooked smile on her face.
"What is it?" I asked, "If you don't mind me asking…" I muttered, trailing off slightly. Emma looked at me and smiled.
"It's a plaque from the Las Vegas Crime Lab." She said. "While I was in 'collage'," she made quote marks with word 'collage', "I had to look at an old case file for my final exam." She opened the door for me and I got in. While I put my seat belt on, Emma zoomed round to the driver's seat and strapped herself in before starting the engine and driving down the drive towards school.
"While looking at the photos of the evidence, I noticed that there was a bullet in the barrel of the gun and after looking through all the evidence I came to a completely different conclusion than the actual outcome." Emma was parking the car in a parking space at the school. I hadn't even noticed we were already here. Emma leaned her head back on the head rest and closed her eyes as she continued to tell her story.
"I went to the professor with my findings and he just looked at me like I had two heads and said, and I quote," She opened her eyes and looked at me. "If you think your right go to the crime lab and tell them!" Emma rolled her eyes before resuming her position with her eyes closed. "I think he thought I wouldn't actually go and he would get to fail me for once," Emma chuckled. "I had shown him up once or twice; anyways I actually went to the crime lab and went to see the chief supervisor, Gil Grissom…"
Flashback – Emma's POV
I walked over to the reception desk with a box of paperwork under my arm. I put the box on the reception desk which caught the receptionist's attention.
"May I help you?" She asked.
"Hi, can I see the person in charge please?" I asked.
"Well I'm afraid he is very busy right now, what is this in relation to?" She asked. I smiled.
"I would like to talk to him about the Clarkson case." The receptionist looked at me with an astounded look on her face.
"That case is over five years old Miss, I don't see…" She got interrupted by a middle-aged man who walked up to her with paperwork in his hand.
"Mia have you got anything for me?" He asked. I could tell he was the chief supervisor and smiled.
"No Mr Grissom but this young lady wanted to talk you about the Clarkson case." She said. Mr Grissom looked up at me.
"Why do you need to talk to me about this case? It's over five years old." He said.
"I know but I was studying it for my criminology degree and I found something rather interesting." I said. He sighed.
"I suppose you should follow me in to my office and we can discuss this matter." I smiled, grabbed the box and followed him into his office.
End of Flashback
"So I showed him what I had found and he got a couple of CSI's to back over the evidence. I was allowed to observe them and I have to admit I did point out something's. At first they would get annoyed but they finally saw where I was coming from." Emma smiled and opened her eyes, which flickered to the clock before looking out of the windshield. Many students had arrived and there was about 5 minutes until we had to be in school. I turned to face Emma.
"Then what happened?" I asked.
"They finally realised they had got the wrong guy and set out to find the actual killer. A day after I had arrived, they caught the guy responsible, and the let the other guy out. In fact he was so grateful that while I was saying goodbye to the CSI's, he came to the office and gave me this car." She stoked the leather arm rest. "I tried to refuse but he was persistent so that was that. You better get into school though, sorry for nattering on." Emma looked down with her left hand scratching the back of her neck. I smiled.
"That's alright, I like listening to stories about peoples past. It's very interesting." I said. Emma looked up at me and smiled. "Besides, you might be my sister one day, I need to know all about you." And with that I hopped out the car and walked over to the school. When I looked back, Emma was staring at me with wide eyes and open mouthed. I giggled and Emma just closed her mouth and grinned. She then started the car and zoomed out of the parking lot. I shook my head and walked towards my first lesson.
When I got in there, I saw that Mike was already there. I sighed and went to my seat. I got the equipment I needed out of my bag and stared out the window, wishing it wasn't sunny so Edward could be here next to me. The day went by like any other. At lunch I sat with Jessica, Mike and the others, slowly eating my salad. Just then Mike sat in front of me.
"Hey Bella!" He said, with a cheerful grin on his face. I swallowed.
"Hi Mike." I said before taking another forkful of salad. I looked at him and he looked kind of nervous. I swallowed again before talking. "Is everything alright? You look nervous." Mike looked up at me with a red tinge to his cheeks before looking back down.
"Well I saw you in the car with that new girl errr Emma Masen and I was wondering errr how you knew her…" He asked. I sighed and put my fork down.
"Mike, she works with my Dad and she was giving me a lift to school because my truck broke down." I scowled into the distance.
"Oh, that's errr nice. Ummmm do you know if…" He got cut off by the bell. I quickly, and carefully, jumped to my feet and threw away my trash before heading towards Biology. I quickly sat down and got out what I needed. Mike walked in and was heading over to me but Mr Banner walked in before he got the chance. I internally sighed in relief and started taking notes.
Soon class was over and I packed up to get to gym. Sigh. I was heading out of the door when someone called my name. I turned to see Mike jogging over to me.
"Hi Mike." I said reluctantly as I turned and walked towards gym. Mike caught up to me and was walking next to me.
"So I was going to ask err do you know if Emma is single orrrr anything?" He asked looking down at the floor. Luckily we were at the changing rooms so I ran in to the girls changing room before I had to give him an answer. I quickly got changed and walked out to the gym. Everyone was sitting on the bleachers while Mr Green was trying to calm them all down. I went over and sat down while Mr Green began to talk.
"Everyone calm down! Coach Clapp has been taken in ill and is not available to teach your gym lessons…" Every one cheered and Mr Green tried to calm them down again. "Alright, alright, calm down again students! I have got you a substitute but she is running late…" Just then there was a loud bang and everyone looked towards the door. Emma stumbled in twirling around slightly, pulling on a track suit jacket. She looked up to see us all staring.
"What?" She asked as she walked over to us. I rolled my eyes and Emma smirked. "Sorry I'm late but I was finishing off some paper work and yada, yada, yada." She said with a smile on her face. Mr Green, who was staring at her, shook his head and cleared his throat.
"Well yes, class, this is your new gym teacher until Coach Clapp is better. I will leave you now and there better be no reports of bad behaviour!" And with that he went to his office. I faced Emma, who was looking at the floor chuckling. I cleared my throat quietly and Emma looked up.
"Well class, I'm Emma Masen but you can call me Miss or Miss Masen, I don't have any preference." She gave the class a dazzling smile while I just rolled my eyes. "Seeing as we only have half the lesson left, get some basket balls out and practice shooting some hoops" The class just stared at her and she raised an eyebrow. "Come on then, chop, chop!" Emma clapped her hands and the rest of the class went into action. I walked over to Emma who was looking over the others getting the basket balls out.
"Should I ask?" I said quietly into Emma's ear. She chuckled.
"It wasn't my idea you know. I was analysing some DNA when I got a call from Ms Cope saying I was supposed to be down here by now. So I rushed down here and Emma-Lee called me and told me she told them I would help out as I was a very active person." She sighed. "You don't mind do you?" She asked giving me a quick glance. I shook my head as we walked over to the storage cupboard to get a basketball.
"No that's fine, it's kind of comforting to have someone I know in the one of the only class's I don't share with the Cullens" I smiled and grabbed a basketball. I carefully walked over to the baskets and went on with the exercise we were set.
It was finally the end of the lesson and by some miracle I didn't hurt anyone or myself. When I had put the basketball away I turned to see Emma smirking at me. I was the only one left in the gym so I walked over to her.
"You stopped me from hurting anyone and I didn't you." I said. Emma looked away from my direction.
"Maybe?" She said in an unsure voice. I giggled and Emma joined in. We walked over to the changing rooms.
"I'll wait out here for you Bella." She said. I nodded and went inside. I quickly got changed and grabbed my stuff from my locker before heading out of the changing rooms. I saw Mike looking at the floor talking to Emma, who was looking at him with a smirk on his face.
"So I was wondering if you want to errr go to the errr beach this weekend…" I could tell Emma was finding it hard to hold in her laughter so I went to her rescue.
"Mike, Emma's friend asked if she could help him this weekend. I know because I am helping out to so leave her alone. Come on Emma." I pulled her hand and she followed me out of the building. As soon as we were out, we ran over to the car and got in. As soon as we were in we looked at each other and burst out laughing. We laughed for a good 10 minutes before Emma had calmed down enough to start the car and zoom out of the parking lot.
"Now that's what I call funny!" Emma chuckled. I giggled along with her. What a day…
So here you go! I had this idea when I was at school. I thought it was time for a little bit of bonding between Emma and Bella. Next chapter will have all three girls and the Cullens will come back near the end of the next chapter. Thanks for all the reviews so far! I love them all and this story has over 1,400 hits! I am so happy! :D I will have a picture of Emma's BMW and her track suit on my profile. And please remember to review! <3
