Bella’s POV:I somehow ended up at the house party that Alice begged me to go to. I think ithad something to do with Edward begging me to have another human experience, andthe fact that Alice wanted to dress me up like a doll. Regardless, I was here withEdward, in tight clothes and uncomfortable shoes.I spotted Tyler at the punch bowl and he waved. He walked over with two cups andhanded me one.“Hey guys. Glad you could make it.” He smiled at me, effectively ignoring Edward,then left. Edward snatched the drink from my hands as I was about to take a sip.“What’s the deal?” I asked, slightly annoyed.“It’s spiked.”“Spiked with what?” I asked, concerned.“Just alcohol; it’s in the whole batch. I can smell it.”“So why’d you take mine?”I really had no desire to drink but giving Edward a hard time was just too muchfun.“Lots of bad things can happen when you drink. The least of which is bad karaoke.I love you too much for that,” he said with a smirk.“Your loss. I’m damn good at karaoke,” I said in a huffy voice. “It’s probably forthe best though. I was in rehab back in Phoenix.”He raised his eyebrow and I tried to keep a straight face.“Yep. I was trading my milk money for jello shots. Tragic.”“Very funny,” he scolded.Alice and Jasper saw us and walked over. They had left their house a littleearlier while I was stalling as much as I could before Edward dragged me out thedoor.Before we could start talking, Jessica came stumbling toward me and gave me a bighug, almost knocking me over.“Bel-la! Ohmygaw I’msorry thatI’ve not seem you round late-ly. We should getch upsometime, k?”“Too much punch, Jess?” Edward asked. His lips twitched.“Huh? Edward you’resohot whyoo not wit me? Oh I gotta go pot-ty bye!”We watched in awe as Jessica stumbled up the stairs.“Is she going to be alright?” I asked Alice. She paused a moment and then smiledwryly.“I just see a big hangover in her future.”I nodded. I’d make sure she had a way home before we left, just in case. Jess wasannoying sometimes and even though we had not been close lately, I still cared.We wandered around the party, briefly saying goodbye to the humans I had spent thelast year and half with. They thought I was saying goodbye until next summer wheneveryone came back from college, but I probably wouldn’t see most of them again. Iwould miss some, like Angela especially. But others…As if to finish my thought, Mike came over and asked me to dance. I looked at thesweaty, grinding bodies dancing near us. I could tell Edward was suppressing agrowl while I was suppressing a laugh.
