Alice POV:

Attention all shoppers! Sale on Dolce Gabanna shoes!

This was one of the many perks of having these visions. I could see when the stores would have sales on the clothes and shoes that I wanted. Rosalie and I were about to grab a bite to eat, when I had a vision that there was a sale over at Bloomingdales. I needed those clothes. Shopping was so theroputic to me. My family thought that I was addicted to shopping.

That's not true....completely....I can stop whenever I want to. Just not today.

"Alice, we should be getting home soon. Bella will be home from school, and I want to make sure she's ok about what you did."

I couldn't help but giggle to myself. Bella was an amazing saxophone player, but she didn't see it. When I had a vision about her performing in a jazz band at school, and having fun I knew that she wouldn't ever do it on her own. She would need help. Help that she would never even know about. That's why I made sure no one was around and I zipped in and scribbled Bella's name on the sign-up sheet and zipped back out.

"Rose, she's not going to find out it was me, just that someone signed her name. She'll grow to enjoy the jazz band. I've seen it." I said and pointed to my head and tapped it. Rosalie just rolled her eyes and gave a small grin.

All of a sudden I was overcome with a vision.


Bella was on her way home from school with Ross. She was walking across a busy intersection and almost tripped over herself. She looked down and saw that her shoe was untied. She checked both ways and and saw that the coast was clear. Bella bent down and started tying her shoe in the middle of traffic.

"Bella, are you sure that you want to do this in the middle of traffic?" said Ross. He was looking around nervously. Making sure that no cars were coming.

"Yes, if I don't I'll just trip over it and fall on my face. Beside I have twenty seconds to tie it really quick."

She bent down and started tying my shoe again. In the distance there was a loud screeching noise. Bella jerked her head up and saw a car driving recklessly and honking it's horn.

Oh my god....it wasn't stopping. She hurried up and tied my shoe and stood up, but the car was slightly faster.At the last minute though, Ross grabbed Bella and they both fell backwards onto the sidewalk.


What would posess Bella do such an idiotic thing! "Alice, what's wrong? What did you see? Is Bella alright?" I wanted to smack that gril upside the head whenever I got ahold of her.

"She will be, that is, until I get ahold of that little girl."

"Why?! Is everything alright?"

I explained my vision to Rosalie and she was both livid and relieved. We paid the check and rushed off home. Then there was the question as to what to do. Should we punish her? Or should we just be glad that she's alright? I would leave that up to her 'mom'. All I knew was that I needed to get home and make sure she was alright.

"Alice, how are we going to get home? It's the middle of rush hour and we can't even catch a-"

"Hey! Taxi!" I waved my hand and a taxi immediately appeared in front of us with a screeching hault.

Rosalie and I looked at each other with confusion. I actually wasn't expecting that to work. But we weren't about to look a gift horse in the mouth. "Let me help you with those bags ladies." Hey, I knew that voice. It sounded familiar, but it couldn't be. "Emmett?!"

"What, can't a guy work as a cabbie and be judged?" He said with a smile. I rolled my eyes and handed him my bags. "Hunny, why are you working as a cab driver?" Rosalie said then gave him a peck on the cheek. "I wanted to have a job where I could be myself and still make some good money. Is that so bad?"

"No, it isn't Em, but it very unlike you to actually be productive with your time. I mean, you're doing something other than playing with your video games. I approve Emmett."

He just gave me a cheeky grin and put the bags in the trunk of the taxi. Rose and I got in and we were ooff towards home. "So what's got you two so wound up that you cut your shopping trip short?"

I let out an annoyed sigh. Sometimes I wished that everyone could read minds like Edward so that way I could just show them, instead of having to tell them, but at the same time, the house would always be in a constant fighting. I explained that I saw Bella almost get hit by a runaway car, but Ross was there and saved her.

"That little squirt is very brave, I'll give her that." Rosalie sat up and smacked him on the back of the head. "I-I-I mean she was very stupid, and should be punished for it." I chuckled as Rosalie smacked him again. "Ouch! What the hell was that for Rosie?!" She scoffed and sat back in the seat and crossed her arms over her chest. I laughed to myself. She could always be a bit dramatic when her and Emmett would 'fight'. "She shouldn't be punished Emmett, but at the same time we're just glad she's ok." Rosalie just rolled her eyes at me. I chuckled to myself, sometimes I think Rosalie liked pretending she was mad at Emmett. That way she would get showered with 'I'm sorry gifts'.

"How much longer is this gonna take Em, we need to get home."

"Take a look outside Alice, it's wall-to-wall traffic. It's gonna take awhile. So I hope you ladies brought some magazines to read, cause this is going to take awhile."

"Who's bright idea was it to move to one of the most crowded cities in the united states?"

Both Emmett and Rosalie turned to me and just glared at me. "What? You both know how I have to have my shopping fix, and New York is one of the cities that the stores that I like. Plus Rosalie, you said that you've always wanted to see a Broadway play. So you see why I picked this place."

Rosalie rolled her eyes, but her hardened expression softened as she thought about what I said, and chuckled a bit to herself. "Ok, I forgive you Miss Alice Brandon, but the next time we move make sure it has more shopping, but less traffic." She said with a grin.

"Whoo-hoo, traffic's starting to pick up you guys."

Thank goodness I needed to get home especially since I needed to get these clothes into mine, Rosalie's, and Bella's closets, then I would deal with 'Little miss danger magnet'.

After waiting for over an hour in a traffic, we were finally home.

"I wish I could come and see 'prefect Bella' get in trouble, but I gotta get back to work. Oh, and don't worry about the fare, I take care of it."

I rolled my eyes, and Rosalie and I walked inside and expected things to be tense, but when we walked in everything was normal. Ross was watching television, Jasper was reading the newspaper, Edward was off in his room working on his music, Carlisle wasn't home from work yet, and Esme was in the kitchen making Bella's dinner. Bella was up in her room studying.

"I'll put the clothes up Rosalie, you can go relax and help Esme. We'll deal with Bella when Emmett and Carlisle get home." She didn't look pleased but gave in anyway. She, and the rest of the family knew not to bet against me. I always win.

"That you do Alice, mind telling me what you're hiding from me? You're translating the national anthem from French to Portugese then to German? You only do that whenever you're trying to hide something. Now, what is it?"

"You know I can't tell you Edward. At least not yet. Wait til Carlisle gets home."

I walked up the staircase and unloaded all of the bags of clothes. I was just finishing up when I was starting to have another vision.


It looked like it was around christmastime, and we were all opening presents. We were in front a burning fire, with a cover of course. Esme and Carlisle were passing out stockings. First to Edward, then to Emmett, Rosalie, Jasper, Ross, and Bella.

Jasper was sitting next to Bella, no, it looked like she was snuggling up in his side. They looked very happy together. Next to Edward was a girl with a woman with brown hair, obviously a vampire, but her eyes were an icy blue, not a red or gold. Then of course I saw Emmett and Rosalie exchanging gifts.

Esme handed me my gift and sitting next to me was a man with black hair, and topaz-colored eyes.

"Alice, here, I got this for you. I know we agreed not to get each other anything, but I couldn't help myself."

I saw myself opening a small teal box with a white bow. When I opened it I gasped, because inside was a beautiful pendant with pink sapphires and round brilliant diamonds that was made of platinum.

"Oh, Beau, you shouldn't have. It's wonderful!" I said then gave him a kiss.

"You're welcome, Adriana helped me pick it out." The brown-haired girl snuggled into Edward and gave me a big grin.


I was shocked. I looked even happier with Beau than I am with Jasper now. I couldn't break his heart though. Besides, from the look of it he eventually falls in love with Bella. They looked so happy together anyways. I couldn't let anyone know. Especially Edward. He wouldn't be able to keep this a secret. He'd want to tell Carlisle.

"Am I really that predictable Alice?"

I jumped in the air. Why hadn't I heard him coming? Oh that's right, I was in the middle of a vision.

"Did you see anything?"

"If you're asking if I saw Jasper with Bella, and you with another vampire, and me actually happy, then yes I did see everything."

Crap. I didn't want anyone to see this. I still needed to figure out when everything would happen. I couldn't...no I wouldn't deny Jasper that happiness that he had with Bella in my vision. Besides, we looked like we were going to be a big nice family. What scared me was that Bella was a vampire. Which meant that she would end up like us. That meant that Maria, or someone just as bad tried to kill Bella, and almost succeeded.

"Promise me Edward Cullen, that you will not breathe a word of this to anyone! Do we have a deal."

"As long as you tell me when I meet that beautiful creature you saw in your vision."

I nodded my head quickly. I didn't have time to deal with this. I was almost inclined to not even bring up the fact that Bella almost was killed when she tied her shoe in the middle of an intersection.

"Bella did what now?!"

Crap. I should've been more careful. This last vision was effecting me more than I had realized.

"Edward, she's fine." I showed him my vision and explained that she was safe in her room. She apparently had a test to study for, but I knew otherwise. I peeked into her future and saw that she had no upcoming tests. She was just staying away from us until she could come up with a good excuse for me. She knew that I would had seen what happened.

"What if Ross wasn't with her?! She could've been killled...no scratch that she would've been killed! And you don't plan to do anything about it?! What good is a psychic if they don't fill you in on things you need to know. I swear-"

I held up my hand in front of his face to stop him. "You done?"

He let out a sigh, then pinched the bridge of his nose. "Yes."

"I was going to wait until everyone was home then talk to Bella and Ross as a family. Plus, to congratulate her on her audition into the jazz band."

"Bella is in the jazz band?! That's wonderful news, why didn't you tell me?"

I chuckled to myself, and rolled my eyes. "You didn't give me a chance to." Just as Edward was about to say something we heard Carlisle pull up in front of the house. Finally, we could get this over with.

Edward and I shared one more glance at each other and we zipped downstairs to meet with the rest of the family. When we reached the living room Carlisle was walking in and walking in right behind him was Emmett. I guess he got off of work early.

"So what was the urgent news you wanted to tell me, that you couldn't tell me over the phone Alice?" I peeked out of the corner of my eye when I saw Ross moving uncomfortably. Good, he had an idea of what was going on. He went along with Bella in not telling us what almost happened to Bella. She was practically-no, scratch that, she was our daughter.

"Well the news involves Bella and Ross. So we better get her down here."

"I'm right here Alice, that's one thing I wish you guys wouldn't do. You talk like I can't hear you guys, but I've trained myself where I can at least hear you whispering."

I mentally smacked myself. Why didn't I see that? Edward was right, I was losing my touch. I saw Edward smirk and I slapped him in the gut. Watch Edward, or I will make sure you never meet that beautiful girl in my vision. "You wouldn't dare. You're too nice." Watch me Edward Cullen. I thought as I gave him a smirk.

"Why didn't you tell us what happened earlier, young lady?!"

"Subtle Rose, real subtle. I thought we were going to ease into it."

"That was before I had more time to think about what happened."

Bella stumbled with her words, but said, "I was going to tell you all when all of you were home, but thanks for ruining it Ross!"

"What? Me? I didn't tell them anything."

"Obviously you did, otherwise they wouldn't have known about my near miss with an oncoming car that didn't stop."

Everyone let out a collective gasp.

"Well, if you didn't stop to tie your shoe, that wouldn't have happened."

Everyone let out another gasp. I started to see what Rosalie was doing. She was acting upset, but she didn't say what she was upset about. Very sneaky...I should've been surprised by this, but this is something that Rosalie would do.

"Oh really, I was upset that you didn't tell me that you auditioned for the jazz band then made it. I had no idea that you nearly got hit by a car." Rosalie said with a big grin across her face.


Then the room was filled with arguing and yelling.

"Bella, why didn't you tell us?"

"I'm fine aren't I? Nothing happened."

"Only because I was there with you."

Bella crossed her arms across her chest. Obviously she was starting to get annoyed. Then her attention turned to me. Then I realized that either Emmett or Rosalie blabbed that I was the one who signed her up.

"Why didn't you tell me Alice?"

"Tell you what?" I decided to play dumb. Maybe she didn't know.

"Don't play dumb Alice, I figured it out on the way home from school. I know only two people who can write my signature that looks almost exactly like I do, not including me. It was either you, or it was Jayme, and since Jayme is not in band, she had no clue about the auditions. So that left only you."

Damn. I somehow forgot that little detail.

"Ok fine, it was me. But I did it because I had a vision of you playing a solog in the jazz band at a concert. I knew that you were too nervous and shy to even try so I forged your name on the sign-up sheet."




I couldn't help but smile. "You're welcome."

A/N: Ok, so what do you think? I know that some of you wanted more Jasper time, but that's coming soon. I just wanted Bella to have some time involving Aunt Alice, besides I thought it was time that you saw that Jasper will end up with Bella....but first will come some drama ;)

Now time for the cookie question. This will be the last cookie question for awhile. I'm getting burnt out on this stuff...(cookie question not stories) So I will make sure that this quote is a good one ;)

"I'll warn him if your plans get any more defined. It doesn't help anything for you to put yourself in danger. Do you think either of them would give up if you died? They'd still fight, we all would. You can't change anything, so just be good, okay?" (Eclipse, pg. 396)

Ok, so keep in mind that I wll keep doing these cookie questions, but for now, I'm going to stop for a few chapters. Nothing personal, it's just getting hard to find good quotes to make some of you think.


***I've thought about it some more and I've decided to keep doing the cookie questions***
