"Bella! C'mon, we're gonna be late!" Rosalie yelled from the living room. I descend from the stairs wearing the super tight, black dress Rose made me wear. She's been my best friend ever since we were babies. Our parents are best friends and I guess that makes us best friends, too. I don't really care because she's been there for me through everything. We went through the awkward stage together, well more like I did only because Rose is gorgeous. She never actually went through that phase. Standing 5"8 with luscious blonde hair, every guy wanted her back in high school and I'm just right there beside her feeling really awkward because some guys would literally just push me out of the way to get to her. Lucky for me she never really left my side. I'm 5"4 with boring, brown, wavy hair. I'm pretty skinny, with a flat stomach but not too thin with a thigh gap, and kind of blessed with breasts and a bum, but I would always be nothing compared to Rose.

"Damn girl, you're looking hot!" she whistled like a boy. That's one thing guys don't know about Rose. She acts like a guy, gobbles food like a guy, but somehow she can still carry herself with poise.

"Stop it," I said, my face turning red. "You know I don't like going to these type of stuff. I mean, you don't even like Jessica. Why do we have to go to her party?"

"Becaaaaaauseeeeeee," she whined, "Emmett is going to be there!"

"I'm just going to be a third wheel to you guys, anyway. Maybe I should just stay. Yeah, I think I should. Besides, I have to-"

She cut me off, "Seriously, Bella. You've been in your room for the past week, focusing on your work. Tonight is just one night. Oh, and Emmett is going to bring his brother. Maybe you guys can hit it off, if you know what I mean." she winked. I'm 23, and I've only been in two relationships. The first one was a with a guy named Jonathan who I was with for like, 2 weeks. Yeah, we were immature that time. The second guy's name was Mike. We were together for about a year, and I lost my virginity to him. It wasn't love, though. I guess we just did 'it' because of peer pressure. We broke up when I left for college. He's gay now and we're really great friends.

"Will you stop bothering me if I go tonight?"

"Yes! I promise. You can lock yourself in your room for all I care. Just please, please, please." she begged. She knows I can't stand it.

"Fine. All right, all right. I'm going."


"Damnit, Edward. Hurry up! They're going to be there in 10 minutes. I can't be late. We can't be late!" Emmett shouted from the living room. We were supposed to go to this stupid party some girl arranged. I've been to parties with Em and his girl, but I end up being a third wheel anyway, but I really don't have a choice. He's my older brother, for crying out loud. He has so much against me. We've been living together ever since we both got a job downtown. I'm really close to Emmett anyway so living with him without Mom and Dad is basically home away from home. The bad part of living with him, though, is having to 'escort' him to parties. I was never really into the night life. I would wake up early, get my black coffee from the Starbucks two blocks away from our apartment, go to work until 10, and come home and sleep, only to repeat the same routine the following day. I guess it pays back somehow because I'm in line to become the VP in the company at only 25.

"I'm coming, Emmett!" I yelled back. I was wearing a white v-neck with black pants, black Vans, and a black leather jacket. I don't usually dress up much, but I want to at least look presentable.

Emmett exhaled a long breath as I emerged from my room. "I don't get why I have to go tonight. You used to let me stay before. I'm just going to be sitting there doing nothing anyway." I said.

"Oh, right, I forgot to tell you. Rosalie's best friend is coming, too. I haven't met her yet, but Rose thinks you'll like her." he answered. So far, I've had one girlfriend and our relationship was like... nothing. I didn't put much in it, and so did Tanya. There was no love involved so it was best for us to end our year long relationship or pure boring. So I'm excited for tonight, and for the first time since forever, I'm actually looking forward to something.

"All right, fine."

"Yeah! Let's go!" Em yelled.

We arrived at the party and the music was blasting. I couldn't even hear myself think.

"Bro, I'm going to go look for Rosalie. Wait for us at the bar, yeah?" I nodded and went to bar and ordered us some drinks. The bartender gave me my drink just as Emmett was coming my way.

"I'm going to go get drinks for the girls and myself. Go sit with them. They're right over there. Rose is the one in the red dress." Emmett shouts over the loud crap playing. I walk towards where he pointed and saw two girls. A blonde in a skin tight dress, obviously Rosalie, and a beautiful brunette in a black dress that hugged her curves perfectly.

Tonight is going to be interesting.
