Nevertheless, I saw her.Had this been the girl I had so easily disregarded? Her eyes were wide and a warm brown colour, her bodywell toned. Not overly so as to fall into the guess the gender game, but enough to know she was active,naturally thin, and though athletic, obviously had a beautiful body. There were no cosmetics to be found onher face, just the natural pink of her cheeks, highlighting the delicacy of her skin."Hey Alice, is Emmett finished practice already?" she asked. Her voice was strangely musical. Not like bells,as her name would suggest, but a light female voice with the slightest undertone of silver chimes."No, but I wanted to go home early anyways." Her eyes flickered to me. I held my breath, counting backwardsin my head from ten to one. If the once stunning Alice-now absurdly plain standing next to Bella-gave her thewrong impression of me...I let that though trail off.Her eyes flickered to me for the first time, as if she had not noticed me before. I didn't mind that much as longas she hadn't noticed my staring.I grinned at her, my hands digging into my pockets, "Hey."She grinned back tightly, "Hi," and with that, she turned, walking away with Alice beside her.Unthinkingly I followed. There was no way I was letting this girl out of my sight. "Did you see that Bella?"Alice asked lowly, giggling. "He tried something with me, then not two seconds later, he hit on you." Shelaughed again."Yea," she agreed dryly, "Real piece of work. I though Rose was exaggerating."Rose? As in Rosalie my sister? So I had put blue Kool-Aid into her shampoo and made her think it was realhair dye, did that mean she had to ruin my reputation? It was a joke for crying out loud."I wouldn't believe everything Rosalie says." I growled.Alice stopped and turned around, shocked that I had been with in earshot. Bella didn't stop walking, "And hereally respects personal boundaries too, I would never expect him to eaves drop."Alice laughed again, and turned to catch up with her.I felt my cheeks heat, "I wasn't eaves dropping, I just happened to be going this way." I snapped embarrassed.She turned suddenly, her eyebrow raised, "Well then, by all means you first miss." She opened the girl's lockerroom door. I thought quickly of a lie, the only decent one would be, I was waiting for my girlfriend."My Girl-"She cut me off before I could speak, her eyes narrowed dangerously, "Don't lie, and say your girlfriends inhere. You were just flirting with Alice with people watching. Word would get around like that." -she snappedher fingers-"And you know it."My eyes narrowed at her. I was done with the attitude, "You know what?"
