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.

I stayed silent. He missed me? He was the one who left me in the first place. Perhaps he should have thought about how he would have missed me before he cheated on me.

But there was a part of me that missed him too. A part of me still loved him, no matter what he did. He was the one I was willing to give up my life for.

He put his arm around my waist. The hard, cold arm felt nice on my skin. It was familiar. I nestled into him, relishing the feeling.

“I forgot how pleasant the warmth was,” Edward muttered, tightening his hold on my waist.

“Edward?” I asked.

“Hmm?” he whispered.

“Why are you here?”

He chuckled in my ear. The sound sent chills through me.

“I love you,” he said at my ear. “I was a fool, I know that. I couldn't help it! I finally told Alice that we were not meant to be, that I only loved her as a sister. Screw 'imprinting', I love you, Bella. I know, in some odd way, that Alice and I were destined for each other, but that isn't the same thing as being right for one another.”

“I don't understand.” Did he break things off with Alice?

“Bella, my life has no meaning, no anything without you. Alice and I are no longer together,” he explained.

He didn't say another word. I felt his weight shift, he was leaning into me. His cool, smooth lips pressed against my jaw line.

I gasped, not expecting the gesture. His lips made their way up, they were at mine in a second. And, in a move that surprised the both of us, I kissed him back. I kissed him with every ounce of my being. My hands found their way around him, I hugged him even closer.

His hands knotted in my hair, his lips parted.

I was all too eager to accept this new development, much to eager.

“Bella,” he growled, softly pushing me away. He rolled onto his back beside me. Perhaps I took it a little too far, but I could care less. That had been the best kiss of my life, the best kiss of anyone's life as far as I was concerned.

There was something wrong, something that I'd forgotten while I was kissing Edward. No, there was someone I'd forgotten.

“Where's Jasper?” I breathed, my heartbeat pumping even faster.

“Hunting,” he answered. The name of his brother did not seem to phase him in the least.

“Okay,” I whispered. I wasn't ready to accept the fact that what I'd just done was wrong. It felt so right!

“Edward?” I asked.

“Yes?”

“I want you to kiss me again.” My voice shook.

“Your wish,” he said, kissing my neck. “Is my command.”

-----------------

I woke up later than I usually would have. It probably had something to do with the huge amount of kissing I did the night before. It tired me out!

I opened my eyes, the room was dark. I remembered Edward ducking out of the room at some early hour of the morning.

“Good morning,” said a voice. I shot upright, looking around.

Jasper was sitting in a chair across the room.

“Hi,” I mumbled, smoothing my hair down.

“Did you sleep well?” he asked, standing up from the chair and walking to the bed.

“Mmhmm,” I hummed. My voice would betray me if I spoke... almost as much as I betrayed him.

He sat down on the edge of the bed and scooped me up into a hug.

“Why do you feel guilty?” he questioned. He felt my mood. I'd have to learn to mask my emotions better if I was going to hang around Jasper.

I thought fast, searching for something to say. “You guys are risking so much for me,” I croaked.

I was a horrible person. Jasper was never going to speak to me again once he found out about Edward and me. I might as well just frolic up to the entire Volturi and give myself a paper cut.

“You know that we would risk anything for you,” he said, trailing a finger down my cheek.

My stomach swooned. I was sick with myself, physically sick. I leaped off the bed and ran to the bathroom. Thank god there was an adjoining one, or I'd be in serious trouble.

I ran to the toilet and promptly emptied the contents of my stomach into it. It wasn't much, I'd hardly eaten at all lately.

Jasper was at my side in a second, comforting me, holding my hair back.

“Go away,” I moaned.

“Bella, there's nothing to be embarrassed about,” said Jasper, assuming I wanted him to go away for the wrong reason.

“I'm not, just go,” I managed to blurt before I was hit with another wave of nausea.

“Bella,” he protested.

“Go!” I screeched. I was sick enough without him being all charming. Every word he said just made the feeling come back twice as strong as it was before.

I watched him leave, the pit in my stomach growing ever deeper. I'd cheated on him, almost barfed on him, and made him sad. I was horrible.

Once I was sure it was safe to move, I inched towards the main room. On a tray next to my bed was a plate of food. As sick as I was, I was also starving.

I propped myself up on the bed and took little bites of the food they provided me with. The tray had huge mounds of fruit on it, but no other food. There was a cup of water by the plate.

I gingerly sipped the water, not wanting anything to trigger my stomach heaves again.

I heard the door open a crack, but there were no footsteps on the tile.

“Alice!” I exclaimed, surprised. She was the last person I expected to see.

She stalked towards me, not answering.

“Why, Bella?” she asked, her voice quavering.

“What?” I asked.

“Why would you do that to Jasper? I thought you were good enough for him, but you're not! He deserves better than you!” she whispered. She sat on the edge of my bed.

“I... I couldn't help it,” I answered, dropping my head. “I missed him....”

She sighed. “I love you, Bella. Sorry for my outburst. I don't really feel that way, honest. You must be in one hell of a bind right now, but you have to choose. It's cruel to continue things with Jasper when you want to be with Edward. Or if you want to be with Jasper, break things off with Edward.”

“I didn't mean to hurt anybody,” I whispered.

Alice gave me a hug. “I know, Bella. But it's going to happen, you won't be able to stop it. Who do you want to be with?”

I thought for a second. “Jasper.”

“Okay, here's what I think you should do. First, I think you should come completely clean with him. Tell him about what happened with Edward, about how it made you feel. Then, and only then, will you be able to be with Jasper and feel good about it,” she explained. “It may be hard, but it's something you need to do.”

“You're right,” I sighed.

“I'll go get him.” She stood up and left the room.

I sat, rocking in place, until I heard Jasper come in the door.

“Are you okay? I was really worried,” he said, taking a seat beside me.

“I'm fine,” I whispered. “But, there's something I need to tell you.”

“What is it?” he asked. His face transformed, the worry painted all over it was heart wrenching.

“Edward came in last night.”

“And?” he urged.

“We kissed... more than once,” I whispered, my voice almost silent.
