Chapter Eight:

Welcome to French Air

"What do they mean, "Welcome to France Air"?" Bella shouted at Alice ahead of me. The flight attendant came back onto the intercom again. Repeating her earlier statement in perfect French.

"Bella, please calm down. I told you that we are going on a trip." Alice tried to sooth her. "I promise we will have fun."

It really was a miracle that we even made it to New York before Bella started her temper tantrum. I had expected it much sooner. Just the fact that she had to get on a plane would usually set her off.

"Well I guess this isn't necessary anymore." Alice said with a smile as she took off Bella's blindfold. Bella glared at her.

"Girls, you should be paying attention." Esme said from beside me, with a huge grin on her face as well.

Bella whipped around in her seat and looked pleadingly at Esme. "Esme, how could you do this to me? I just wanted some bonding time. Not to fly halfway around the world, again. We could have found something to do in Washington. We could have spent the weekend in Seattle."

"Now where is the fun in that?" Alice asked laughing.

I kept out of the conversation, and stared straight at the flight attendant. She was tall and thin. With flowing curly red hair. She made me think of Victoria. I took a moment to wonder about her. Had the dogs really scared her off? Or was it Alice reappearing in Forks out of the blue. I really didn't want to find out.

She was a little to vicious for my liking. I understood her hatred towards Edward and Bella. If anything like that had ever happened to Emmett ... I would definitely track the cause of my pain down. But she had to be stupid to come after her, now that they were together again. She is family. And we protect family at all costs.

Hey, I just called her family. She sure is good at worming her way into your heart.

"Rosalie, I just had a vision." Alice said so low that I doubted that Bella even heard her.

"What?" I asked coming back to the present.

"Just wait till you see the dresses we get at Christian Dior. They will be perfect for prom. Are you and Emmett going to crash? It would be fun to go as a completed family."

"I hadn't thought about it. But if you want. Sure."

"I completely want you to come. It will be so much fun. Our first official family affair." She flashed her impish grin.

"Wait, isn't prom next week?"

"What's your point?"

"Never mind. I will tell Emmett when we get home."

Alice turned around in her seat to talk to Bella. Two days. It wouldn't be that bad. I could last it. I would even make sure I talked to Bella before we got home. I laid my head back and closed my eyes for the rest of the flight.
