There was a knock on the door to the room.
Edward opened it, "can I help you, this is a private room and already booked out for the day."
"Yes I understand but there is no other rooms free for my daughter and I," a male voice replied.
Edward turned to the others who all shrugged.
"Ok you can use the far corner as long as you don't get in the way of anyone," Edward sighed.
Edward opened the door and in walked a man with his daughter holding his hand and a bag in his other hand.
Alice smiled, "hi I'm Alice, this is my eldest Amy and my youngest Lily. This is my mum Esme and her boyfriend Carlisle. My best friends Rosalie and Bella. Rosalie's husband Emmett, their eldest Abigail and their youngest Benjamin. Bella's husband Edward, their eldest Renesmee and their youngest Carlie."
"Nice to meet you all I'm Jasper and this is my daughter Cassie," he smiled at Alice.
Jasper moved to the corner and tried to do Cassie's hair but she started crying.
"Daddy stop it hurts."
Jasper sighed and stopped doing her hair, "I'm sorry baby."
Alice turned to Esme, "Mum I've already got Amy ready could you do Lily and I'll help Jasper," she whispered.
Esme nodded and started getting Lily ready while Alice approached Jasper.
"Would you like me to help?" Alice asked.
"Oh.. Um.. no I can't ask you to do that," Jasper insisted.
Alice smiled, "It's fine. I've been doing this for years."
Jasper smiled, "thanks, Cassie you ok with that?"
"Yeah huh anything to stop it hurting."
Alice took the brush from Jasper and slowly but gently brushed Cassie's hair to get rid of the knots.
"How do you want it?" She asked Cassie.
Alice grabbed the curlers from Amy's bag and plugged them in to heat them up.
"Do you have your dress?"
Jasper handed it to Alice who took Cassie's hand and took her into the cubicle wear the girls got dressed.
Emmett approached Jasper, "look Alice is like a sister to all of us and she has been a single mum since Lily was born so be careful with her she's had a hard life."
Jasper nodded, "I understand. So how long have you guys been doing this?"
"Well Ali, Rose and I since we were 3," Bella said.
"Then we got our girls into it at the age of 2 Bells can't enter Carlie until next year," Rosalie said.
"Wow I only entered Cassie 'cause her mum did pageants when she was younger and Cassie wanted to be as well so I gave in this year, this is her first pageant so I have no idea what to do," Jasper explained.
Esme smiled, "Alice loves the pageants and always has, so you're lucky to have her help you."
