FB - Chapter 14 Teaser

The doors opened, and we walked down a short hallway until we reached a door with two decorative steps in front. I knocked, and in less than a minute the door was opened revealing a bouncing Alice.

Alice was no longer in work clothes but had donned a little black skirt and frilly tank top. She managed to pull off the dressy casual look well, even with her current bare feet.

Before I knew what was happening, she had pulled us both inside with a squeal and enveloped the woman at my side in a hug. Isabella’s reaction was delayed for no more than two seconds before she hugged Alice back, and I released a deep sigh, relaxing just a little more. Maybe tonight would be okay.

We were ushered farther into the house and found Jasper in the kitchen moving expertly as he jumped from one dish to the other. He looked up. “Hey Edward,” he smiled at me and then shifted his attention to the woman Alice had her arm wrapped around. “And this must be Isabella.” Jasper wiped his hands on the towel he had tucked at his waist and came around the island. Extending his hand, he said, “It’s good to finally meet you.”
