Tom and Sam moved around the room, tying balloons and other party decorations while Rob carried a birthday cake on the coffee table.
The Brit Boys heard the door open.
Kristen barges in but stops on her track.
Rob, Tom, and Sam: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!”
Kristen stares at the boys, barely moving.
Tom: “Do you like it?”
Sam:*Muffled voice* “You better say yes, Kristen, coz this is itchy!”
Kristen finally looks at Rob…
Kristen: “Baby, why are you wearing contacts?”
Rob: “It's the fluorescent lighting.”
Kristen: “Okay… What…?”
Rob: “It’s your birthday, love.”
Kristen:*Knits eyebrows* “Guys, it’s not my birthday!”
Tom:*Raises an eyebrow* “BELLA, YOU FORGOT IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY?”
Kristen:*Takes deep breaths* “Hmm… Yeah… Thank you, guys. This is a, um, wonderful surprise.”
Rob: *Embraces Kristen* “Bella, love, come and check out your cake.” *Holds Kristen’s hand and pulls her towards the coffee table.”
Kristen: “Sighs* “Sweetie, you didn’t have to do this.”
Sam:*In muffled voice* “That’s what I told him, Kristen...”
Tom: *Shots Sam a knowing and threatening look*
Sam:*Corrects himself* “I mean, Bella…. But since, uh, the wolf pack and the cold ones united, we thought it would be nice to celebrate your birthday with all of us here… with you.”
Rob: *Smiles... Then mouths 'thank you,' to Sam* “See, love. All these for you. Happy Birthday.”
*Rob kisses Kristen chastely on the lips… then kisses her some more… then more… until the kisses become urgent and hard. Kristen grips Rob’s hair and surrenders to the kiss.*
Sam: *Still in muffled voice* “Um… guys… I think we should cut the cake and get this fictional party over with before… umm… I'm really suffering here!”
Tom: “Come on you, two!”
Rob: *Gives one last kiss on Kristen’s top lip* “Bella, Jacob here brought you a present… It’s a bracelet…”
Kristen: *Turns to Sam then smiles* “OH! IS THAT WHAT YOU ARE! I thought you were a bear or something…”
Sam:*Still in muffled voice* “Damn, Kristen.. I mean Bella… We’re doing all these for you and you mock me? THEY DON’T HAVE A WOLF COSTUME AT THE PARTY CITY WE WENT TO AND ROB THOUGHT THIS BEAR COSTUME WILL DO!”
Tom: “Stop complaining, Sam… I mean, Jacob! How or why I let Rob--" *heaves a deep breath* -- "EDWARD... HOW OR WHY I LET EDWARD convinced me to put on this spiky dark wig and put make up on me is beyond me… I must be crazy! YEAH, I AM FUCKIN’ CRAZY!”
Rob: “STOP COMPLAINING, ALICE!”
Kristen: *Tiptoes to plant a kiss on Alice's cheek* "Oh, Alice. You are so sweet. Thank you... and Alice, you look beautiful!"
Tom: *Squints eyes at Rob* "I'll get you for this, Edward-fucking-Cullen!"
Kristen: *Feels warm inside* “Awww… you guys! This is the best birthday, ever!... Wait, I’ll be right back…”
*Ten minutes later*
Rob: “Oh, Bella… You’re perfect!”
*Kristen twirls in her blue, halter-top dress and Converse… then winks to emphasize her chocolate brown eyes--- yup! Contacts, like Edward’s*
Kristen: “Now we can celebrate properly. Edward, Jake, Alice -- *giggles* --- LET’S PARTY!”
ROB BEAMS… PRETTY SMUG FOR CONCOCTING THE BEST BIRTHDAY PARTY EVER FOR HIS BELLA…
Tom almost twisted his ankle while wearing a pair of Alice-heels.
Sam endured the itchy, wolf… I mean bear costume… I mean, JAKE constume
(we gotta give it to him... Thanks, Sam! And oh, also to Alice.. Thanks, Tom!).
BUT EDWARD AND BELLA HAD THE BEST TIME EVER… ESPECIALLY AFTER THE PARTY… WHICH THE TWO STARTED AFTER JAKE AND ALICE LEFT… CURSING LIKE THEY NEVER CURSED BEFORE!!!
Over all… It was a night neither Edward nor Bella will ever forget…
But it’s something that Sam and Tom are willing to erase from their memory bank...
