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.

Bella's POV

I sat down at my desk, my head clouded. Even a simple kiss on the hand was amazing, especially from Jasper.

"What's the deal with you and Jasper?" asked Jessica in a whisper. I jumped, startled. I hadn't heard her come in, let alone sit by me. Class had already started, but we were watching a movie. Movie day meant that Jessica would be free to question me relentlessly without worrying about the teacher catching her.

I was reluctant to tell her. I knew that as soon as I did, the news of whatever Jasper and I had been doing would be spread around school like wildfire.

"To be perfectly honest with you, I have no idea," I sighed. I knew she wasn't going to take that as an answer.

"What happened between you and Edward? I thought you guys would never ever break up, ever. You were like the Romeo and Juliet of Forks," she noted.

"Not quite," I whispered. "Romeo and Juliet were meant to be. For always and eternity. Edward and I... weren't," I finished lamely.

"So you guys...?" I knew her unasked question.

"Yes, Jessica. Edward and I broke up, okay?" I said, my voice raising a few octaves.

"I figured, sorry. What does that have to do with Jasper, though? Why is he hanging around with you instead of Alice?" she asked. I could hear her trying to sound sincere, she wasn't very good at it.

"It's not my story to tell, Jessica," I sighed. It was his choice. If he wanted to tell people that he got kicked out of his family, he could.

She huffed, angry that she couldn't get any good gossip out of me. She remained quietly fuming for the rest of the class.

When the bell rang, I put on my coat and braced myself for the cold air. I opened the door and Jasper was there, like always.

"You don't look too happy," he said. I didn't feel too happy either, he probably knew that too.

"I'm okay," I grumbled. He nodded, not pushing the matter any farther.

The rest of the day passed in a blur. I was hardly aware of the motions I was doing, the words I was saying. It was just like I was auto-pilot all day.

I was shocked into the present when Jasper picked me up from my last class.

"I'm giving you a ride to La Push, right?" asked Jasper.

I blinked out of my zombie state. I had forgotten that I had plans to go see Jacob.

"That would be nice," I said. I could see his brow crease in worry. At least he didn't say anything about why he was worried. Edward sure would have. Edward would have tried to talk me out of going the whole ride to the reservation.

Jasper opened my door for me and waited while I got in. He walked around the front of the car and I could see the extra effort it took him to walk human speed. I couldn't help but laugh.

He got in and looked at me, puzzled. "What are you laughing about?" he asked, starting the car and reversing out of the spot.

"You should have seen your face just now," I answered, still laughing.

"Why's that?" he asked. We were on the main road that led out of Forks.

"I can see how much you hate to walk slow, it's a little bit funny," I replied honestly.

"That's really nice, Bella. Thanks for laughing at my pain, I really appreciate it," he said, hiding a smile.

"No problemo."

"So," started Jasper, his tone abruptly changing, "I would like it if you would take this cell phone with you. It's just to ease my nerves, that's all. It'd make me feel better about you visiting him," he said in a rush. He held out a cell phone.

I grabbed it and shoved it in my pocket. "Whatever makes you happy," I answered.

He pulled to a stop and turned off the engine. A few meters away I could see Jacob leaning against his car.

"Call me if you have any problems, okay?" asked Jasper.

"I will, I promise," I replied sincerely.

Jasper nodded and I saw him lean toward me. He trailed his finger down my cheek, pausing at my chin. He looked like he was speculating something, I could only guess what. He smiled and let me go.

"Have fun," he said, his tantalizing breath blowing in my face.

It was a moment before I could move at all. When I did, I got out of the car mechanically, and closed the door.

The closer I got to Jake, the more irritated his expression became. When I finally reached him, he cracked a smile. I frowned, it was Sam's smile, not mine.

I got into the car quietly. I looked over and saw that he was trying to conceal his anger. I knew him too well though. I called his bluff.

"What's wrong?" I asked, genuinely concerned.

"The way you act around him... it drives me crazy," he said, his voice muted.

"The way I act around him is none of your business," I snapped.

"The hell it isn't, Bella," he growled. I was confused when he drove straight past his house.

"What are you doing?" I asked.

"I'm kidnapping you. If your not smart enough to leave him on your own, I'll take you away from him myself. Rotten Bloodsuckers."

I gasped. Kidnapping me? "Jacob Black, you pull this car over right now, God dammit!" I exclaimed. I wasn't one to cuss, so when I did it was because something big was happening. "You are not worth anything to me! Hear that? Nothing! You never were and you never will be!" I screamed.

He pulled the car over and turned to me, shuddering. "Stay here, Bella," he said before leaping out of the car. He disappeared into the woods.

I was shocked. Jacob tried to steal me from Jasper, literally. I sat in the car, staring into the woods, waiting for him to come back. When the phone buzzed, I yelped. It startled me.

"H-hello?" I answered.

"Bella?" asked Jasper. "What's wrong? Did he hurt you? Are you okay?"

"I-I-I think I need to be rescued," I whispered.

"I'm on my way," said Jasper, his voice ringing with authority. The line went dead.

I snapped the phone shut and then dropped it as I realized what was happening. Jasper was going to La Push. He would break the treaty. He would be killed...

And it was all my fault.
