"Alice, I think you've played Bella barbie long enough, besides, don't you think this is a bit much for a group date? It's not like he's even going to notice that I'm wearing D&G ballerina shoes for pete's sake."
I loved my aunt, but when it came to shopping, she would always go a little too far. I was still recovering from falling off my mauve five-inch pumps that she got for my eleventh birthday last year. Let's just say that Alice isn't allowed to buy me any 'dangerous' shoes until I feel I'm ready. I don't think I've ever seen her pout so much in my life. Wait, there was that time where they ran out of her favorite lip gloss, and her flirting got her no where, and Rosalie hadto step in and they 'magically' found some in the back store room.
Let's just say we had to get Aunt Alice out of that store, as quickly as humanly possible, before she destroyed the whole store, literally speaking, not figuratively. Thank goodness for momma's quick thinking about taking her to a blow-out sale over in Manhatten. We were able to get her mind off the almost disaster.
I stompped my way to the kitchen and plopped down in the stool that was placed in front of the island.
"Bella, if you want this Christian guy to really like you, you're going to have to wear what I tell you. Plus, if you do I'll....can't believe I'm going to say this.....won't play Bella barbie with you for a whole month."
"Really?!" I was willing to wear this outfit, if that meant that I would get a break from being her life size barbie doll.
"Wow, you feeling alright Ally?" Emmett said then put his hand against her forehead. Alice smacked his hand away and stomped off and was mumbling something I couldn't quite catch. "I'm fine Emmett, but I can't say the same for your video game collection when I get ahold of it." I don't think I've ever seen Emmett that scared. Even Rosalie threatened to stop doing 'it'.
Funny thing was that they thought that I didn't know what 'it' was, but after hearing momma and Emmett, and accidentally walking in on them I figured out what 'it' was. And I personally don't see the big deal about it.
"You. Wouldn't. Dare!"
"Oh watch me monkey boy! Consider your games obliterated as of now!"
"Bells, why did you have to go provoke the pixie? Now I'm the one she's set her wrath on."
I was starting to feel bad, but at the same time I was just glad that it wasn't me that she was taking her anger out on. "Em, you and I both know that Alice will be back to her normal self in a few hours."
"Yea, but why do I have to pay the price, I mean, you were the one who made her upset in the first place."
"That's true, but I'm the adorable little neice, and besides, in a month I am back to being Bella barbie."
"This is true, but why do I have to suffer? I didn't do anything."
I let out a sigh and nodded. "That's true Emmett, but you were the only other person around, and she couldn't quite well take it out on her only neice now could she." I said with all the enthusiasm and sarcasm as possible. "You're enjoying this aren't you." Emmett said as he rolled his eyes. "Only slightly more than A LOT!"
I straightened up. They were fifteen minutes early. I hurried over to the mirror and made some last minute adjustments to my hair and hurried to the door, but was cut off by momma and Alice. I could tell that this was going to be very embarrassing. I had to stop them.
"Hello, is Bella Swan home?"
I peeked over Alice's shoulder and saw Christian, standing there all alone. Where was everyone else? I knew that momma and Alice would not let me go see a movie with just Christian.
"Bella! your little friend is....oh, there you are. Your little friend is here to pick you up. Wait, I thought you said that you were going with a group of friends, Bella."
"Oh she is, they're all out in the car with my mom. She's dropping us off at the movies, then she's going to pick us up afterwards and take us to eat dinner. If that's alright with you two."
They were dumbfounded into silence. I was starting to like Christian even more. Especially since he was able to stun mom and Alice into silence. I walked around them both and grabbed my little purse that Alice insisted that I buy and headed out the door. I shouted my goodbyes as we headed out the door. When we got to the car, there was Ashlee, Kara, Bryce, and Lance. They were considered part of the cool crowd.
"Hurry up Bella, we're going to miss 2012 with how fast you're not moving." I was a little embarrassed, I thought Ashlee was somewhat nicer than Kara, but I guess that was all just a show.
"Don't mind them Bella, they're just jealous that you are able to find designer clothes, and they have to buy knock-offs."
That was almost sweet. But wait, how did he know that these were designers? "How do you know that they're designer clothes?"
"Well, my mother is a cousin to Stella McCartney.(a/n this is a ficional relation) So I get all the info on designer clothes that come here from Britain."
Oh wow, Alice and Rosalie are really going to want this to work out with me and Christian. They would absolutely die if they found out right now. Then again, Alice is probably watching as we speak. I had no privacy when it came to having a vampire psychic for an aunt. But at the same time I knew that she only did it, because she cares about me and my safety. It could be so annoying though.
"Yo, Christian, are we going or not?"
He shook his head in annoyance, but nodded yes anyway. That's when he came to my side and opened the door for me. I tried my hardest not to blush, but did a lousy job as I slid into the car.
"That outfit's amazing Bella, where did you get it?"
I made up some lame excuse, because I had no clue really where I got it. Alice was the one who got it for me when here and mom were out shopping yesterday. Surprisingly enough, they actually bought my excuse.
After an excruciating long ride to the theaters we finally made it. Christian's mom dropped us off, and we went tot he ticket booth to buy our tickets. What I wasn't expecting was that the guys were paying for their own date's ticket. Now don't get me wrong, I'm all for this, but it just makes me feel bad that I would have to ave someone else buy my ticket for me.
When it was our turn at the counter I was about to pay for my own when Christian stopped me. "Don't worry Bella, it's my treat. Besides, I was taught that the guy is the one that always pays for the movie tickets."
I blushed a bit and turned away quickly so he wouldn't see, but he already did. "Did someone ever tell you you're adorable when you blush?" That just made me blush even more.
"Here's your tickets, enjoy the movie." I looked at the ticket taker guy and raised an eyebrow. Could he have any less enthusiasm? But then I guess after saying that over and over, you lose the chipperness that you had a few months into the job.
'So what did you think of the movie?"
What could I say? I liked the movie, but I just didn't think the world would end in three years just because some old Mayan prophecy said so. "Christian, I liked it a lot, but I don't think the world will come to an end just because theres a prophecy saying so."
"I totally agree Bella. Wow, you're the first girl that I've come acorss that I can actually have an intelligent conversation with, and not have to deal with clothing emergencies."
I couldn't help but blush.
"Hey, where's Bryce, Ashlee, Kara, and Lance?"
"Oh, they already headed home. They said that they weren't feeling good. Hey, it's still somewhat light outside, do you wanna go for a walk in the park?"
I was jumping up and down inside. I just a great movie with a great guy, and now he wants to go for a walk with me. Ross was wrong abut this. I had nothing to worry about. Christian was a great guy, and I really felt a connection with him.
The more we walked the darker it was starting to get. "Christian, I think we better get back to the theater so your mom can come pick us up."
"Oh, she's going to be a little late. Her bridge game is runnign a bit late." That was odd, that sounded almost like a lie. But why lie about it? "Ok, well let me call my house, I'm sure someone can come pick us up."
I opened my phone and started to dial, but Christian grabbed my phone from me and and slammed it shut and threw it in the bushes. "That won't be necessary Isabella Marie Swan."
Just then Christian took a step back and he was transforming. Transforming into one of my worst fears. No, it couldn't be.
"What? you don't recognize me Bella? I'm deeply hurt that you don't recognize the same person who killed your father all those years ago."
No, it couldn't be. The Cullens promised me that she would never get close to me. But here she was. Standing in front of me with that same look she had all those years ago. "M-M-Maria?! How did you find me? The cullens told me that you wouldn't be able to ever find me."
"Aw, but you're forgetting that she also knows me."
I turned my head to the right and out of the shadows walked out none other than Holly. "B-But, I thought my family killed you?!"
"Aw, well that was true, but my mate knows a sorcerer, well knew one. Poor Liam, I'm always telling him that he needs to feed before having company over."
I started backing up, and being my naturally clumsy self I tripped and fell back onto my bottom. I started to crawl backwards away from my two worst fears.
"Wait, a minute, you're not Maria. Maria didn't have fiery red hair. She had short brown."
"I told you she wouldn't fall for it Holly." Just then the vampire that looked like Maria started morphing again. This time her hair got longer, and her red hair got longer as well.
"Dear Bella, you shouldn't fear death, in fact, I'd welcome it if I were you. Otherwise, Holly here might have to make it slow and painful."
I squeezed my eyes shut and waited for my death to come as the two vampires slowly walked over to me, but death never came. Instead, what I heard was two loud growls. I peeked out from my hands and saw both Ross, and Jasper standing in between me and my almost murderers. Immediately Ross leaped for Holly's throat, but stopped half way.
No, Holly was using her mind control. Ross turned to Jasper and went to a denfensive crouch.
"Jasper, don't hurt him, Holly's trying to control him again!"
Holly turned her attention to me and smiled an evil smile and all of a sudden the red head leaped over to me and was towering over me. Then there was a loud screaming coming from somewhere, then I realized that the screaming was coming from me. I was the one screaming like bloody murder. As quickly as I realized it the red head grabbed me by my throat and pulled me up so that my feet were barely touching the ground.
Gasping for breath I looked on as I saw Ross and Jasper fighting. Finally Jasper was able to get to get away from Ross long enough to take down Holly. Once this happened Ross stopped in his tracks and nearly fell to his knees. I tried yelling for him, but it was getting harder and harder to breathe. I could feel my consciousness slipping further and further away.
All of a sudden the tight pressure on my throat was released. I coughed and coughed trying to get my breath back, but I could feel an impending darkness loom over me and as I let the darkness fall I saw two bright fires with purple smoke. I relaxed and let the darkness take me, my worries were over.
