Chapter 9 Teaser: The End

This week's chapter is the final chapter, and it will be significantly longer than the others have been.

“You guys look great!” Bella laughed, taking picture after picture of Alice and Rosalie.

While Rosalie was dressed like Wednesday Adams, she was anything but as she posed for pictures with Alice, who was every bit the seven year old princess with her pink tutu and tights, tiara, and a wand with a star at the end.

“Edward!”

“Two seconds!” he yelled from their upstairs bedroom.

“Okay, okay. Settle down. Now, what are the rules – Alice, settle down. What are the rules for Halloween with daddy?”

“Only let go of daddy’s hand when he says it’s okay,” Rosalie replied.

“That I get all the candy,” Alice threw in.

“Alice, no,” Bella laughed. “Only let go of daddy’s hand when he says it’s okay, and always stay together where daddy can see you. Okay?”

“Yes, mommy,” they replied.

“Alright. Let’s go,” Edward proclaimed when he reached the bottom of the stairs.

The moment the three of them saw Edward, the house was filled with the cutest giggles.

Edward, while still wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans, and sneakers, was also wearing a tutu around his waist and a tiara on his head.

As he scrambled to find his house keys and the girls grabbed their plastic pumpkins for trick-or-treating, Bella noticed something on Edward. Before Alice led the brigade through the front door, Bella pulled his hand back.

“Are you wearing glitter?” she asked, moving closer to see his neck and giggling lightly.

“I asked daddy to wear it,” Alice replied, charging over.

She grabbed Edward’s hand with both of hers and began tugging.

“Come on. Let’s go. The candy’s waiting.”

“What can I say?” Edward smirked and leaned in to kiss Bella. “Real men sparkle.”
