Notes:
Okay! I know, I know. I've not been good at updating at all. It's been about 4 and a half months actually. I will be deleting those stories, editing them, AND THEN putting them back up. The only other one staying will be We Meet Again. Not to worry though. They will be back. Anywho, this is a Jasper/Bella fic and I hope you enjoy. I'll be MUCH better with my updates on this one.

Jasper's POV

I could not resist. She was walking alone, off the trail. I happened upon her when I was hunting, not a very acceptable situation.

"Hello," she said as she saw me. I could feel her level of fear and astonishment rising. Her heart rate started to climb.

"Well, hello," I said in a subdued voice that I saved for the luring in of humans. She unconsciously took a step away from me, but never took her eyes off mine. That step was all it took to set me off.

I lunged at her, knocking her to the ground; she let out a little yelp. I lowered my head to her neck. I could feel her pulse beating wildly.

"Sorry," I whispered before I plunged my teeth into her neck.

I felt the sweet blood pour into my mouth. Her struggles were becoming less severe. I drank faster, not wanting her to suffer.

When I was done, I looked down at her. She looked about fifteen and had dark curly hair. was one of the palest humans I'd ever seen. Almost as pale as me. He face was relaxed. A small smile was painted on her face. That's how it always was. The humans realized they were going to die and stopped fighting it. They thought of the good things in life and ultimately, died happy. I frowned slightly. No matter how content they were when they died, I felt terrible. I’d taken her away from her family, her friends.

It was then that I knew I made a mistake. My family would be furious. I buried the body and then went on the hunt for big game. Maybe if I devoured enough animal they wouldn't see the subtle pink in my eyes. It wasn't a very big girl, there was less blood inside her than in your average adult. It was more of a little snack than a meal.

I hunted nothing but large animals for the next two hours, and then made my way towards home.

I felt it as soon as I got near the house, an anger that was almost tangible. They couldn't know what I'd done. I had blocked my thoughts from Edward during my entire hunting trip, and Alice wouldn't know because I had made the decision right before I did it. Perhaps they were angry about something else.

I ran to the front door and then slowed. It was almost painful to be standing there. I could feel Edwards rage radiating through the walls. Before I had a chance to open it, Edward all but ripped the piece of hardwood off its hinges.

"How could you? Human, Jasper? Human?!" he roared, pulling me into the house. "Bella is here! I don't need an unstable brother when she's around! She could be hurt!"

I looked around the room. Emmett and Rosalie had the same shocked looks on their faces. Carlisle and Esme were facing away, I could feel their pain. Alice was standing behind Edward, hands on hips, looking at me with a fierce look, with a hint of sadness and pity. . Bella was shrinking back from Edward, she didn't feel scared, just startled. Edward had never lost his temper like that around her.

The room had gone quiet.

"What do you need me to do?" I asked, already fearing the answer.

"I need you to leave," answered Edward simply. I looked to where Alice was standing and it seemed that she actually agreed with him. The rest of them didn't say anything, so I assumed that it had been talked about before I had gotten here. If not, nobody was exactly protesting the idea.

"You're kicking me out," I stated.

"Sooner rather than later, please," said Edward, not hiding the disdain in his voice. It was like being this close to someone like me absolutely disgusted him.

I turned without saying a word and left, nobody stopped me. Nobody followed, not even Alice. The fact that my own family would leave me out in the dust had crushed my will to fight back. There would be no begging on my part.

It was bad enough that my family had kicked me out, but when Alice didn't do anything to stop it, I was crushed. She was the one person who meant the most to me, and she sat by and accepted my departure from the family.

I stood in the forest surrounding the house for around an hour, and decided that it would be nice to check back in on my family before I left them forever. A last look at their faces would be nice.

I peeked into Emmett and Rosalie's room and was not surprised when I saw them lounging on the bed watching television. That's almost all that Emmett did besides hunt. Rosalie was frowning at the wall. I looked into Carlisle and Esme's room, where Carlisle was holding Esme's shuddering form. She'd be crying if she could. I turned away, not being able to bear anymore.

When I got to Alice's room, I saw that it was empty. Wondering where she was, I moved to Edward's window.

He would have noticed me there if his face wasn't glued to Alice's. His hand started to move slowly up her shirt. She giggled and I'd had enough. I turned away and didn't look back. I knew where it was going; I could feel the passion through the window.

So he was cheating on Bella and Alice was cheating on me. The rejection crashed down on me like a ton of bricks. My only mate was kissing someone else. Betrayal won out over rejection as the prominent emotion, and I quickly ran from the house.

They always said that they had a special "connection", that both of them being able to see into others minds had bonded them in a way. They had always said that it was a simple sibling relationship, but I guess we were all wrong. It was amazing nobody would hear them in that house.

I ran from the house to the main road and didn't stop until I saw a certain red truck.
