followed them with his eyes, he really disliked both of them. Jessica had some unpleasant fantasiesabout him every time she saw him. Alice and Bella continued their conversation unaware of Edward’spreoccupation, until they suddenly both stared blindly towards the line, towards the two girls.Edward followed the vision they both had in Alice’s mind.Lauren and Jessica walked in between the tables, looking for the table that included Mike and Tyler.They couldn’t see the ground because of the trays and they weren’t paying attention in their hurry tofind the right table. A stray bag lay exactly in their path and Edward saw Lauren tumble over it in anunlucky fall. Jessica was just in time to stop and balance her tray. Lauren on the other hand crashedinto the floor and scattered the food and drinks on her tray all over her body. The cafeteria turnedaround in shock first, until a few seconds later they all burst out in a fit of laughter. Lauren pulledherself up and ran from the cafeteria crying.Alice and Bella both stared at Lauren, who was paying for her lunch.
Knowing her, she deserves nothing better.
Alice thought and she shrugged, uncaring.Edward couldn’t agree more. What did the self-absorbed girl wish for this morning? He was almosthappy she would go through the same thing she wanted Bella to go through, maybe she would learn alittle bit more sympathy towards other people.
Yes, karma is a bitch!
He thought content.Bella frowned when Lauren turned around with her full tray and began to walk the aisle. He shouldn’tbe surprised, but he still was when Bella jumped up from her seat next to him and walked hurriedlytowards Lauren.
We should have known.
Alice thought grouchy.Bella reached Lauren before the guilty bag caught her feet. ‘Hi Lauren,’ Bella said smiling, ‘can I ask you something?’
Wow, why is she talking to me? I thought miss perfect was too good to talk to the normal people.
‘What do you want?’ She answered rudely.Oh, this girl so deserved to fall on her face, but Bella walked with Lauren and shoved the bag out of her way with her feet, guiding Lauren towards the table she so desperately wanted to reach. ‘I wondered if you know some good places to shop around here. Alice and I will want to go shoppingsoon.’
Yes! At least she will have to go shopping with me now, Bella never lies.
Alice bounced in her seat excited.
She is asking me for shopping advice? You wouldn’t think she needs it, she is the most stylish dressed in the room, together with the other Cullens of course. Well, I will point her to the worst shoppingarea around here. She will get no help from me.
Edward could barely hold the growls that rumbled in his troth. The only reason he stayed in his seatwas because Bella would want it that way. Lauren gave her directions and Bella thanked her, turningaround before the boys at the table could ask her to join them.
Unbelievable! Bella saves the girl from public humiliation and she ends up thanking her for somerubbish shopping advice.
Edward could have known Alice already knew every shop in the neighbourhood and therefore couldsee through Lauren’s falsehood easily. Bella reached their table, followed by several piercing staresfrom Lauren’s table. ‘Bella sweetie, why did you do that?’ Alice asked. ‘Her life was not in danger, you didn’t have to saveher.’ Emmett, Jasper and Rosalie had caught up with the situation, through Alice’s explanation, and joinedthe conversation. ‘Yes, she is unkind to you, she deserves everything that is coming for her.’ Rose added.Rosalie wasn’t the one to leave an offence unpunished.
