The Beach - Jessica/Bella/Embry/other La Push folks  

It was early Saturday morning and Angela had barely slept.  She had NO idea how she was going to ask Embry to the dance tonight.  She knew he'd be there, he wanted to show her some of his favorite places and she was counting on it.  She had set out a good pair of jeans, a pink thermal shirt and a funny t-shirt to wear over it.  It was supposed to be sunny, so she was excited to not have to wear a coat all day long.  She was of course bringing one along.  As was the plan, she had a few grocery bags full of different kinds of chips and dip.  Someone else, Mike, she thought, was bringing some burgers. 

She was one of the first to arrive at Newton's Outfitters.  She was hoping that Bella would be next because she really didn't want to talk to Jess today.  She knew that once Jessica saw her with Embry, the questions would fly the second they were alone. 

She heard Bella's loud truck and looked up thankfully and waved.

Bella was relieved to see that so far Angela was the only one that had arrived. She was still a bit nervous about this whole beach thing since she wasn't known to have very good luck with the outdoors at any time. However, she was in a pretty good mood after the time she had spent talking to Edward and Alice before. She couldn't wait to tell Angela all about it.

She parked the truck and got out carefully. She was wearing her jacket and her hair was pulled back from her face. She smiled again as she approached the spot where her friend was waiting.

"Hey Bella!" she said excitedly. She motioned for Bella to sit down next to her on the sidewalk.

"How are you this morning?" she asked.

She looked up at the sky thinking how nice the weather was. It was nice to see the sun for a change. She bet Bella was happy about it too.

"Not get rained on," Bella replied cheerfully as she sat down. "How about you?"

She tilted her head back, happy to have the sun on her face.

She smiled widely. "I really hope the weather holds all day! I brought my raincoat just in case. You just never know here." she said.

"So I saw you talking with Edward after school yesterday, is everything ok?" she asked.

Bella blushed. "His sister, Alice, wanted to meet me and ask me to be her partner for an English project."

"Oh! That will be good for you. Alice is really smart when it comes to that, like you are. You two will be a good match that way." she said.

"You know, I think it's nice that you've made friends with them. Everyone is always so stand-offish with them, it really just bothers me. They don't really talk to me, but I would if they did. I just never wanted to bother any of them." she said.

"I hope you don't think I'm being too nosey here, but...Do you like Edward? I'm just curious because I've seen him look at you and I'm pretty sure he likes you.." she said quietly. She felt like Jessica for a minute and hated it.

She blushed again. "She seemed very enthusiastic ab0ut it and I think it will be great to work with her. She wants us to have a book exchange, too. Apparently we both love the classics and she's excited to have someone to talk to about them."

She turned to look at Angela. "Edward is so sweet and gentle and Alice is so friendly, I don't understand why anyone would be standoffish with them." She chewed on her lip. "I do, Angela. I think maybe a lot."

She smiled. "I had a feeling they would be that way if anyone would get their fear under control and not be so judgemental. It drives me crazy when people are like that. When you came to town, everyone was practically on top of you. When they got here, everyone just stayed far away and the whispers started almost immediately." she said with disgust.

"Maybe one day if you are all having lunch together, I'll come sit with you guys. At least the conversation is bound to be more exciting than Jessica's new crush or who's cute or who's making out with someone else." she said with even more disgust. "That'd really give Jessica something to fume over!" she laughed.

"I'm glad you like him. He certainly is something to look at and I know just how smart he is!" she said conspiratorily.

Bella frowned a little. "That doesn't seem fair," she said softly. "They're much more interesting than I am." She shook her head, her eyes a little confused at this information. "You definitely have to come sit with us if we're having lunch together. Alice really is a friendly person, and I think you'd enjoy talking with her more."

She liked Jessica, but hearing her and Lauren talk all of the time about the cute guys and making out wasn't exactly that interesting to her.

She blushed again. "He really does seem pretty smart, doesn't he?"

"Oh there's no seem to it. He puts everyone to shame in Biology. I'm sure that's why the teacher was glad to put you with him. You guys are on the same level." she said.

"Now me, on the other hand, I have the lamest lab partner in the history of ever. Mainly because she just doesn't want to work at it. She'd rather I did all the work!" she said.

Angela noticed the blush building on Bella's cheek. It was so different from the way Jess was about boys. Never cute and caring like this, but more like the boys were conquests.

"I'd really like to sit and talk with you guys. So if you are, just come and save me from my table!" she said laughing.

"I'm so nervous about seeing Embry today. I hope I look ok," she said as she played with her hair.

"I don't think Edward was pleased about being given a partner at first," she admitted. "But he seems to be all right with it now." She smiled.

"You look wonderful," Bella assured her. Like her, Angela didn't seem to bother with the layers and layers of make up that so many girls their age seemed to swear by. "Embry is going to be happy to see you."

"I really hope so! I know how excited I am! I've never had this kind of a feeling before and it's so .....so...cool!" she said.

"Did you ask him if he wanted to come today?" she asked.

Just then Angela heard another vehicle drive up. It was Mike in his suburban and Jessica wasn't too far behind that.

Angela sighed at Bella. "Well there goes the fun quiet time!" she said quietly to Bella.

She gave Bella's hand a quick squeeze. "We'll talk more when we can get away from everyone else at the beach, Ok?" she said.
Kysrinariakysrinaria on May 26th, 2009 12:37 pm (UTC)
Angela, despite her feelings toward Jessica, waved to she and Mike. Mike saw Bella and his face lit up. She couldn't help but laugh because she already knew that Mike had NO chance with Bella. Now Jessica on the other hand, he could easily have. She was already drooling over him.

"Hi Mike. Hey Jess!" she said warmly. "Ready for the beach?" she asked.
