La Push - The Beach  
After everyone assembled at Newton's Outfitters, they got to the beach around 10. The weather was nice for a change, which made Angela feel very hopeful for the day. She was also happy for Bella since it really hadn't been that nice since she came to Forks.

"Isn't it beautiful here?" she said to Bella. The beach wasn't the typical one you see in the movies. It was more rocky than sandy, but for where they lived, it was nice. It had a very earthy feel to it. She looped her arm through Bella's leading her away from the kids a bit to show her around a little.

She looked up and saw Embry walking toward them with a few other boys in tow. Her heart sped up and she shook Bella's arm. "That's Embry, but I don't know who he's walking with though."

Bella looked up with a smile at Angela's excitement. Peering at the group of guys heading their way, Bella smiled again.

"That one there, he's Jacob. His dad has been friends with my dad practically forever. He and I were close when we were kids." She shook her head. "I don't know who the others are, though."

"Ahh. Embry mentioned Jacob the other night. Nice to put a face with the name." she said.

Her heart started fluttering the closer Embry got. He looked so cute and she looked down at what she was wearing and played with her hair. She whispered to Bella, "Do I look ok? Oh god, I sound so stupid!"

She saw Jessica eyeing her and Bella, so Angela held back from running up to Embry to say hi. Instead letting him come to her. Trying to play it cool even though she was anything but right now.

"So you said that you and Jacob were close when you were kids. What happened? Are you guys not friendly any more?" she asked of Bella.

"You look fine, Angela," Bella reassured her friend.

"Oh, it's nothing like that," Bella said softly. "I stopped spending summers here and we haven't seen each other in years. We're still friends, though. My truck? My dad bought it from Jacob's dad."

"You know, I actually love your truck. Its certainly safer than most anything else out on the road and it really has character! Even if it is loud!" she giggled.

As the group of guys got closer she leaned over to Bella, "Well talking with Jacob has to be more interesting than spending time with Jessica and Mike! Maybe you, Jacob, Embry and me should go off to look at some stuff and get away from the crowd here."

Bella smiled at Angela and nodded. "I really like that idea. I like Jessica and Mike, but sometimes they can be exhausting to try to keep up with. And add in Lauren..."
Kysrinariakysrinaria on June 2nd, 2009 04:34 pm (UTC)
Angela rolled her eyes. "I totally agree!"

While they were waiting for the group of boys to walk closer, she thought she'd ask Bella a little more about Edward. "So, did you ask Edward if he wanted to come with us today? Not that I would blame him if he didn't. The way everyone treats his family." she scoffed.
lamblovethelion on June 2nd, 2009 04:39 pm (UTC)
She nodded. "I did ask him and he said he would like to, but that he had something with his family that he had committed to this weekend." She leaned closer to Angela. "I really don't think he wanted to let me come here without him. He was so concerned and worried that I was going to end up hurting myself."
Kysrinariakysrinaria on June 2nd, 2009 07:30 pm (UTC)
"Don't worry. I'm sure with all of us around we can keep you from getting TOO damaged." she laughed. "But really, that's very sweet of him. He seems very protective of you, that's nice." she said quietly.

Bella blushed. "He is, and I'm worried that I'm reading too much into it," she admitted softly. "Why would he want me when he could have someone gorgeous and graceful like Jessica or Lauren." Her heart twisted in her chest at the thought of Edward with one of them, but she was trying to be a realist.

"I bet Embry would be just as protective as you."
Kysrinariakysrinaria on June 2nd, 2009 08:26 pm (UTC)
Angela looked at Bella open mouthed. "Are you seriously asking that question? I can tell you exactly why he talks to you rather than Jessica and Lauren. And forgive me for saying this but Jessica and Lauren are not in his league. They are rather vapid honestly. To be honest, I don't think Edward is hung up on looks, he really cares about substance. And even knowing you as short a time as I have, I already know there's much more to you than those two could ever hope to have. And besides, you're beautiful, whether you see it or not." She said genuinely meaning every word of it. She made sure she kept her voice down so that Lauren and Jessica could not hear her.

"I don't want to get too excited over Embry just yet, but I can't help myself. I just feel something I can't explain at all when I'm around him." she said thoughtfully. "And like you, I have NO idea why he's interested in me when there are all of those exotic girls here on the reservation."

Bella blushed again, playing with her hair. It wasn't often that she had someone comment on her looks and that it was coming from Angela made her realize that it was very sincere. Angela had quickly became her best friend in the time that she had known her. She was honest and sweet and wasn't hung up on the things that their other friends were hung up on.

"I really like him a lot," Bella said softly. "I just keep waiting for him to realize that I can be pretty boring." Now it was her turn to look at Angela in shock. "Angela, all of those girls obviously don't have what Embry seems to be looking for and that's substance. You're beautiful and smart and you have things to talk about that aren't fashions or anything like that. If he didn't like you, he'd be the biggest idiot in the history of idiots."
Kysrinariakysrinaria on June 4th, 2009 12:50 pm (UTC)
Angela laughed out loud. "Well he IS a guy, so let's not count out the 'biggest idiot' just yet!" she giggled.

"I'm sure at some point they'll ALL do something to prove that they are still that way. They always seem to be able to do that with little effort." she said.

Boys were never a high priority on her list and now having Embry around made her feel like something very big was about to happen in her life and she wasn't exactly sure how to deal with that.

While she was waiting for the guys to get close enough to them she wondered out loud. "I wonder if anyone brought marshmallows. I'm really craving s'mores!"
lamblovethelion on June 4th, 2009 12:57 pm (UTC)
"I prefer that we live in denial of that until we catch them at it," Bella teased softly, not wanting the approaching guys to hear them.

"Oh, s'mores," she said in a regular tone of voice. "Those would be pretty good right about now."
Kysrinariakysrinaria on June 4th, 2009 01:05 pm (UTC)
Angela giggled, but it faded quickly. Jessica came over to join them as did Mike.

"Hey guys. Did anyone think to bring stuff for S'mores?" she asked. Mike said that Tyler and Lauren had. This made Angela happy. She was relatively easy to please and could almost always be bribed with chocolate of some variety.

Jessica looked like she couldn't contain herself any more. She asked about the group of boys walking up. Angela just groaned internally. Not wanting to have this conversation just yet.
lamblovethelion on June 4th, 2009 01:07 pm (UTC)
"That's my friend, Jacob, and some of his friends," Bella said, trying to downplay the answer. She knew that Angela didn't want to have conversations like this with Jessica any more than she did. Therefore, she was going to do her best to try and distract the other girl.
Kysrinariakysrinaria on June 5th, 2009 05:00 pm (UTC)
Angela started getting a little more jumpy as the boys got closer. She wanted to run to Embry, but she sat still by Bella.

She felt bad because it looked like she had been trapped by Jess in a conversation. She appreciated that Bella was taking the heat off of her for the moment. She was sure the second Embry walked up, everyone would see what was going on. Hopefully she hadn't read too much into what happened the other night.
