"And done!" said Alice. She spun me towards the mirror.
I looked at myself closely. I didn't look that bad, actually. My skin looked a lot 더 많이 cleaner. My hair was clipped and curled. The clothes I was wearing weren't actually the ones that Rosalie 또는 Tanya wore. They just showed a little 더 많이 skin than I was used to.
"Well?" I asked for her opinon. I don't really know why I cared, but for some strange reason I did. Probably because of the talk that Alice was talking about. Maybe I didn't have to be mean to her after all.
"It's beautiful! Come on!" she said and pushed me downstairs. I moved away from her. I didn't want her to touch me. I was still self-conscious about myself. Edward had a very tight car. I couldn't 옮기기 so I didn't complain about sitting on Emmett. Plus, Rose would shout at me even more. I hate her so much.
I looked down the stairs and saw everyone doing different things. Edward was sitting 의해 his piano. Emmett and Jasper were playing Rock Band. Esme was cooking and Rosalie was in the washroom.
Emmett was the first to look up. He stood mouth opened. I knew it wasn't because I looked hot 또는 anything but because I looked so different than how I looked a few hours ago.
Jasper followed suit. When he noticed that Emmett had stopped playing he looked to see what was so important.
Edward saw that neither one of them were screaming at each other anymore. He looked up to see what stopped them. "Wow..." His eyes popped out of his head, practically. "Bella... 당신 look stunning." He smiled at me. I was really grateful for Alice, so I returned it. I didn't want to be a jerk anymore. Not to anybody that wasn't a jerk to me, like Edward. In fact, he was the one to save me and I guess I owed him one.
"Um... Thanks." I took a 좌석 on one of the couches, on the ones that Emmett and Jasper weren't using. Rosalie came out of the washroom, looked at me for two 초 and walked upstairs. No compliment. Nothing. Edward had closed the lid to the 피아노 and sat beside me. A little too close for my likings, so I moved further away from him. He didn't seem to mind as he watched Jasper cream Emmett in Rock Band. That's what Emmett gets for playing on 'Expert'. It looked like he could barely manage 'Easy' with those fingers of his.
"Hey, Swan. Think 당신 can do better?" asked Emmett. He couldn't read my mind (obviously) but 의해 the disgust that was shown on my face, he didn't have to. “So, Bell, up for the challenge?” Jasper took the 기타 and handed it over to me.
“What challenge?” I said, cockily. Like I said, I didn’t want to be a jerk to a guy who wasn’t a jerk to me. I took the 기타 and Emmett picked the song. He chose 'That's What 당신 Get' 의해 'Paramore'. He, of course, chose 'Expert'. "Come on, Emmett. Expert is way too advance for you." I said and he groaned. "Fine. Whatever. But watch when I kick your butt!" I chose 'Expert' too. I know what you're thinking. Why was someone who has never played Rock Band, let alone the Rock Band Guitar, doing putting the level to 'Expert'? Well, you're about to find out.
The 초 the song started, I hit the note perfectly. Emmett, on the other hand, was stuggling quite a lot. Every combo, had me moving my fingers in different positions. Every combo lead Emmett to get 더 많이 frustrated. 의해 the middle of the song, I was all the way at the 상단, 맨 위로 of the bar. Emmett, on the other hand, was at the bottom. He set no Fail mode, probably because he was really mad about restarting after every lose. He groaned because my score so far was 48,945 while his was 2,305. He left took off the strap and put his 기타 on the couch. Now I was really going to cream him! But as I was concentrating on my own 기타 bar, I saw Emmett's begin to light up. Now, the notes were being hit.
I looked beside me, where I saw Edward standing there. He was moving his fingers over the keys, fast and swift. I was staring for only a 초 before I got back to my game. Edward was a thousand times better than Emmett which made it so much 더 많이 fun.
의해 the end of the game, I won Edward 의해 a landslide, but that was only because of Emmett. Otherwise I would've been creamed.
"Wow, Bella, how did 당신 learn how to play a Rock Band 기타 like that?" asked Jasper, clearly amazed. Probably wondering for the 다음 time he plays with Edward.
"Well, when I was smaller, my babysitter enrolled me in classes. And they kind of really want 당신 to be precise and perfect. The faster I learned how to play the 기타 and just played the notes as they came, the faster I could get out of that class. But unfortunately, my babysitter made me take ballet." I told them a story, that doesn't reveal the worse parts of my life. I pretended that I wasn't good at ballet, but I picked up really quick, just so I wouldn't have to go to any other classes. "Edward, where did 당신 learn how to play?"
"Are 당신 kidding?" Alice asked. "This boy here," she gave Edward a little slap on the chest, "was obsessed with Rock Band as a child. He could never beat my father, so he trained and trained and I guess it stuck on. Too bad there aren't any pianos in Rock Band, right?" Edward looked down a little shy.
"Oh Eddie, nothing to be embarassed about. Just a little lonely?" They all started to tease Edward, barely noticing me. They acted as if I was apart of the family. Uh-oh. This couldn't be happening. Edward must've noticed I was even 더 많이 quiet than usual.
"What's wrong?" he asked. I just shook my head. I can't let this 'family' thing get into my head it's just too much. "You want to eat something?" I shook my head once again. I went and sat on the couch. I have to get out of here!
You're probably wondering... What happened to that mean mean Bella? Has she turned nice? Wow what a story. A few chapters, 당신 leave us, 당신 totally ruin the plot... ectra ectra. But NO. She is going to be mean. I swear, if I ever end a story this fast (with only 8 chapters ;P) Slap me.
Okay, REVIEW. I promise I'm going to update something soon!
