A/N: My laptop finally got fixed. Hooray! *retarded happy dance*
Here is a birthday present to anyone whose birthday is today! My birthday is the 6th of June so don't forget to give me an early present by clicking the review button. Please? ;D
Thank you so much MissCoppersMom for being awesome in general!
DISCLAIMER: I don't own the twilight saga. However, I do own anything I make up!
I was basking in the warm sunlight of my meadow, the smell of freshly cut grass hung in the air. My skin sparkled like brooks in the morning sun. I wore a white sundress that showed off my legs.
Earlier on, Emmett had tried to play the flute. The mere sight of him made me giggle. He looked like a leprechaun that had been to the gym. To make matters worse, Alice dressed him up in a green jacket and tights and he wouldn't stop talking in an Irish accent.
Alice was expecting me for a shopping spree in half an hour. I was relishing in the freedom before she could snatch it away.
I absent-mindedly played with a strand of my hair while I thought.
Sweet music drifted to me from our house. Emmett finally found out you are meant to blow across instead of in, then.
I went back to the house to find Emmett sitting in the middle of the living room playing 'great escape'.
"Finally got that flute thing figured out, huh?" I asked him.
"Yeah, Rose! You and Edward aren't the only ones with musical talent! Alice said she is going to learn the bagpipes!" He boasted.
"I don't think she really meant that, Em," I said.
"It's kind of a private joke between Edward and me. Sorry," I apologized.
"I'm shocked. You? And Edward? In the same room together without the world ending? Joking? Talk about juxtapositions!"
I slapped the back of his head.
"Owww! You know, Rose? You should copyright that."
I slapped him again. He laughed.
"ROSALIE HALE!" Alice yelled, her soprano voice high and tense.
"Yeah, Alice?" I ran down the stairs.
I looked around for her. She was nowhere to be seen
Suddenly, marble hands were covering my eyes.
"Guess who!" she sang.
I racked my brain; trying to think of the person I would least expect to materialize behind me.
"EWWWW! No! Definitely NOT Nicki Minaj!"
"Rosalie!" she whined.
"I know it's you, Alice. Let's go. You have a lot of orders to bark at me and I have a lot of bags to carry."
"Finally! Someone who does not object to my orders! Come on, Rose! I saw this amazing dress online and I need your opinion-"
"No,'' I interrupted her;'' you want me to agree with your opinion and not voice my own.''
"Correct, dear sister. Correct."
''Urgh!'' Alice groaned for the fifth time since we started driving.
"You know, Alice, it is extremely hard to drive with you groaning every minute!''
''I know. But I just do not understand humans! Walt Disney in particular. And all of those people who get suckered into watching a movie they have seen eight times over."
There was silence. I decided to give her what she wanted.
"What did Walt Disney do?" I sighed.
"It's just...All of those princesses he created are so...so...what's the word?"
"Cheap?" I suggested.
"Kind of. They are all about falling in love and getting married at 16. Take Ariel for example: she does not have freckles. It is genetically impossible for red-heads not to have freckles!"
"Alice..." I sighed, knowing very well what was going to happen.
"Then she disobeys her dad and lives happily ever after. It is stupid! Then, Cinderella: why couldn't it be about Cinderella saying 'screw you' to her step family and moving out and getting a job? That would be a good movie."
"No it wouldn't have."
"In all my years of vampirism, I have never seen women treated so disrespectfully. You...Urgh! Emmett was on my side!"
"Alice, if a convicted robber with the words 'I am a thief' stamped in big red letters across his forehead was on trial, Emmett would be on his side. Besides, in most countries, when a man opens a door for a woman, it is usually because they paid them. I think Edward is the world's last shot a bringing chivalry back."
"Way to ruin my happy, Rose."
"Anytime, Alice. Anytime."
29 shops later, we were back at the Cullen house getting rid of Jasper's army officer jacket.
"I just don't understand..." Alice stood staring at Jasper's secret hoard of out-of-fashion clothes we had uncovered.
"Hey, Alice, I just wanted to...OH MY GOSH!" Jasper came into the room; his eyes grew as big as saucers.
"The jig is up, Jasper." I smirked at him.
He smiled sheepishly. "Sorry, girls..."
"It's okay, Jazz..." I began.
"Thanks!" He turned to leave.
"But I think you have seriously broken Alice's fragile heart."
"How...How could you do this to me, Jazz?" Alice whispered.
Jasper went over and started kissing her passionate.
"Ewwwww! Get a room!" I yelled.
Jasper broke the kiss to glare at me. "As far as I know, we are in a room and you happen to be intruding in it."
I huffed. "I think it will take a lot more kisses to win back Alice, lover boy."
"You thought wrong," Alice smirked.
I walked out of their room and into my own. Emmett was lying on the bed, mumbling to himself.
"Beds, huh?" I asked.
"Yeah. I was just thinking, why do we even have-"
"I know. I was thinking the exact same thing yesterday."
"That's my girl," he said as he got up and hugged me tight.
He pulled me back onto the bed and I laid my head on his chest.
Somewhere in the house, Edward was playing that song he wrote for Bella.
Emmett swayed in time to the music. Suddenly, he raced over to the CD player and different music drifted through the speakers.
I recognized it immediately. It was 'Moonlight' by Yiruma.
"May I have this dance, malady?" Emmett bowed and held out his hand.
"Of course," I placed by hand in his.
We twirled around our bedroom and I was thankful we had chosen the biggest room of the house.
When the song finished, Emmett pressed some roses into my hand. They were white with a tint of pink on the tips.
"Sorry, they are a little rumpled from the dance number I was doing." He smiled, ''My dance partner was very demanding.''
"The nerve!" I smirked.
Alice and Jasper came into our room.
''There is going to be a storm later on, do you want to bat or will we?" Alice asked.
"It depends, what are the teams?" I questioned.
Jasper jumped in before Alice could say anything. ''You, Carlisle and I, against Alice, Emmett and Edward."
"We'll bat first, then. Do I have to wear those...manly ...pink outfits?" I glared at Emmett.
"No, just wear what I have laid out for you." Alice trilled before skipping of down the hall.
"You won her back, then, lover boy?" I smirked at Jasper.
He grimaced and nodded.
I smiled, knowing all too well what price he had paid. "Three months of shopping?"
He nodded again.
I went into my vast walk-in closet to get changed. Alice had matched navy pants and a cap with a light blue long-sleeved top.
I silently opened the door and ran downstairs.
Just when I was at the bottom step, I heard Jasper say, "He invited Bella..."
A/N: Review please? Pretty pretty pretty please with an Edward on top?
