“No,” Edward grumbles from the front seat. “We aren’t stopping again.”
“But I finished drinking the jumbo ICEE over an hour ago, and I have to pee.” Next to me, Alice crosses and uncrosses her legs.
“Maybe you should have thought of that before you bought it.” The words are harsh, but from where I’m sitting in the backseat, I can see the smile threatening the corner of Edward’s lips. “We’ve stopped twice already,” he continues. “What is it with you girls? Is there some unwritten rule about how often you have to make pit stops on road trips? And how is it that the more of you I get in my car, the more times I have to stop, when you accompany each other to the bathroom every time?”
“I don’t know, Edward. Just stop at the next gas station,” Alice demands.
“I’ll stop when we get to Forks.” Edward throws me a quick wink over his shoulder.
“I can’t hold it another half-hour.” She begins to kick the back of Edward’s seat, and it takes everything I have not to laugh. Alice seems to have slipped into her role as little sister quite well.
“Fine, but one of you needs to come sit up front afterwards. I’m not a chauffeur.”
