Bella isn’t typically one to fret over fashion, but even she acknowledges her plans for this evening provide a unique challenge when it comes to attire. How is a girl supposed to dress to go out with an alleged womanizer who has already seen her in a get-up worthy of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch? If she sexes it up, Edward will likely think she’s easy—and though there’s something about him that makes her wish she was easy, in reality, nothing is further from the truth. If she dresses too modestly, he’ll likely think she’s playing games with him, that she wants him for his money and will only put out if he does first.
She pulls a few options from the closet she shares with Kate and tosses them onto the bed, knowing her dilemma isn’t so much about what she wants to wear as who she wants to be. She doesn’t recognize her own mind as it comes to a resolution—tonight, she’ll be whoever Edward wants.
