A while later, we came downstairs, hair mussed and feeling... different. Bella immediately looked at me and frowned, even though she no doubt knew what just happened. She walked over to us and pulled my arm.
"Alice?" she scolded, pulling me away. I unhappily pulled away from Jasper. "What did you do to your hair? Jeesh, girl!" Bella frowned. "I mean, look at it! Anyone could guess. You know your parents aren't gonna be happy..."
I shrugged, but then looked at Jazz chatting with Kaitlyn. He couldn't keep his eyes off me, and me him.
"Al? You listening?" Bella scowled. Then she grinned and hugged me hard. "Yipee!" She squealed.
"I know!" I squeaked and shivered with excitement. "It's him, Bells, I know it."
I looked at Alice regretfully as she walked away reluctantly with her bubbly friend.
Kait soon disrupted my thinking/staring with a poke.
"So," she said, eyebrows raised. "You did."
I nodded. "I did."
I internally shuddered as I talked to Jasper. He deserved better than her, I knew he did. But... I turned up, all dressed up, at the party, and he chose the slug. Whatever, right? I just felt sorry for him.
