I know it's spring break for most of you and although you may be partyin' hard, you can't party the whole time. For those times in-between gettin' your groove on, Lab Tech Andi had found a few things to feed your other addiction and get you in the mood too. So dance your way to the blue door at the back of the shack, knock the quick and complicated rhythm of Paul Gilbert’s “Technical Difficulties" and the password is "Rockstar". Be Safe!
I was laughing so hard I couldn't see through my tears. Jasper and Bella were doubled over too. We were eventually able to calm ourselves, until Jasper started up again, at which point we were all a lost cause.
"I do not cheat! I don't need to cheat!"
"You do cheat!"
I'm sure you're wondering what on earth could have possibly been so funny; I should probably tell you where it started. A few months ago, Jasper had managed to hack the code for Guitar Hero so that he could load or change the songs, making them more suitable for their vampire speed. Jasper and Bella had been testing it out in the lab when Emmett walked in on them. From then on, it was all over.
Emmett had challenged everyone at least once to a Hero battle and he'd beaten them too. That is until he decided to challenge Rose to a Hero play-off, over confident that he'd shred her. Was he ever wrong!
Jasper had loaded a bunch of new songs, created insanely complex fret combinations, and increased the tempo. To a human player, this game would have been impossible.
For the last hour, Rose had completely annihilated Emmett in this epic round of Guitar Hero and if they could sweat, Emmett would have been dripping. As it was, he just looked crazy as his fingers moved up and down the plastic guitar and he danced around in front of the television.
And this is what had Jasper, Bella, and I rolling around on the floor laughing ourselves into a stupor. The more frustrated Emmett got, the more exaggerated his movements became. The more Jasper laughed, the more we all laughed and at one point I couldn't tell if we were laughing because of Jasper or Emmett. It was contagious!
We managed to get calmed down enough for me to breathe and that's when Emmett started complaining that Rose was cheating, making Jasper start laughing again which was making the rest of us laugh again.
"Okay! Okay!" I said to the group. "Why don't you guys take a break, so that I won't die of suffocation."
Jasper looked at Bella and asked, "Wanna play a round?"
"Sure," Bella replied jumping up from her seat and taking the guitar Rose had.
Jasper started walking toward Emmett "Alright Em, give me the guitar."
"No!" Emmett nearly yelled clutching the thing to his chest like the Hobbit with his precious. "I can play Bella."
"No Emmett. Dude, you need a break and so do I." I attempted to reason with him. Slowly he hung his head and handed over the controller.
"Come on, Baby." Rose said in Emmett's direction and he glared at her. "Fine, but I bet you can't beat me to Lake Pleasant." she casually stated walking toward the door.
"We'll see about that!" He said as he flew out the door when Rose opened it and I swear I heard her growl just a little as she followed after him.
Listening to all that guitar playing, kinda got me in the mood for some rock and roll, so all these tales have a little bit rock and a whole lot of roll. Enjoy!
My first tale is an incredible story of smoke and mirrors called "Faking It
" by spanglemaker9. I'm positive it comes as no surprise that half of all Hollywood’s most famous couples are faking it. That's right, relationships created out of the need to create an image. That’s how Bella Swan’s publicist convinces her to pretend to date a troubled Hollywood bad boy, Edward Cullen. And she'll do anything for her band and her music. What she doesn't count on is the aftermath. Will this accomplish the attention they were both seeking?http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5153711
This next amazing tale is truly one of adventure titled "Life in B Minor
" by jaxington. Bella lives a privileged life, one with lots of music and expectations and it's never really been her. Edward learned early that he had to work for what he got, but is what he got really what he wanted? There's a lot these two will have to work though before they both end up where they're supposed to be. It's a journey you'll love to travel again and again.http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5721107
This third tale is an alternate ending of sorts called "Music of her mind
" by venomousgal. This story begins when Laurent finds Bella in the meadow, only the wolves didn't get there in time and Edward never came back to Forks. Since then Bella has changed and has been trying to find Edward for two years. In her quest to find him she becomes a musician in hopes of someday reaching him through her music. Will Bella ever be reunited with the Cullens?http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4542186
The last in my list is a wonderful tale of discovery called "La Cantante
" by tufano79. Bella is a freshman in college studying to be a music teacher. She loves music and she's managed to make it there via a scholarship. Edward is a pre-med student at the same school but secretly wants to be a musician. So what are the odds that Bella's brother Emmett just happens to be in and share a room with a cover band? And they all live in the same dorm? There are times in life when passion has a completely different plan for your life than you could have ever imagined. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6566267
