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.

“More than once?” he murmured.

“Yes, and... I liked it at the time. I think I just wanted closure. But after it was all done I realized what a huge mistake I made! I like you Jasper. Edward is nothing... nothing. I want you, not him,” I whispered.

“Wait, so what your saying is that Edward came into your room last night and you had a nice little romp around the sheets?” he asked calmly. I didn't know if he wanted an answer, so I didn't talk.

He hung his head, his face grave. “How could you, Bella? I trusted you!” He stood up, throwing his arms in the air. “I thought that you'd have the decency to restrain yourself, the decency to at least say no! All Edward does is say a few nice words, a few nice little words, and you're all over him! I cannot believe you!” he yelled.

“I couldn't help it!” I spat back. He ran up to me, his face only inches from mine. There was something different about him... something very different.

“Oh, Jasper,” I whimpered. His eyes were not golden, not golden at all.

He turned away. “It was an accident, I promise,” he whispered. “She was there, all... broken, hurt. It looked like she was attacked by an animal. I was hunting at the time! I wasn't thinking rationally and I lost control.”

He looked distraught. Jasper did not like killing people, no matter how broken or hurt they were.

“Come here,” I commanded.

He walked slowly, exceptionally slowly for Jasper, to the edge of the bed. He sat down and laid back, resting across the bed. He shut his eyes and took shaky breaths.

“Edward is nothing compared to you,” I whispered at his ear. I'd never thought I'd change the subject back to the topic of cheating, but the murder thing seemed like it was taking more of a toll on him. I moved to his side and curled into his side.

His arm encircled my shoulder. “I can't lose you, Bella,” he sighed. “You help me, probably more than you even know. If it weren't for you... I have no idea where I'd be right now.” He squeezed my shoulder and sat up.

“I'm sorry,” I whispered. “I just couldn't help it....”

He turned around, his face pained. “I have to go. I'll be back later,” Jasper said quietly. He got up slowly and walked to the door.

I curled into a ball when I heard the door close. He was mad, I could tell that much. I did feel better after telling him everything. If he wanted me back after that, we'd have no more secrets. I'd tell him every single thing.

I'd tell him about Jacob, about how I love him, werewolf or not. I'd tell him that somewhere inside me, I'd always love Edward.

The door opened again and I buried my face in the bed. I wasn't in the mood to talk to anyone right now.

“Go away,” I said, my voice muffled my the bed.

“No, we need to talk.” It was Edward's voice. I sighed, I didn't want to do this right now. Wasn't one relationship talk enough for a day?

“Look, Edward,” I started.

“Listen to me, Bella,” Edward interrupted. He stood across the room, arms folded. “If you wanted to be with Jasper you should have told me,” he said, voice sharp. I flinched, waiting for the yelling.

He was beside the bed in a second, towering over me. “I would have understood. Just tell me, tell me who you really want, Bella.” His voice turned gentle, his face softened.

“Jasper,” I replied quietly.

He nodded and left the room. I didn't even get to say goodbye.

He was gone for less than a minute when I heard a knock on the door. I rolled my eyes. People would not stop talking to me today!

“Come in,” I called, clenching my teeth. I was a little more than irritated at that point.

Aro, Marcus, and Caius walked into the room. I froze. There I was, halfway to tears and dressed in my jammies, with the three most powerful vampires in the world.

“Bella, we need you to come with us,” said Aro. For once his voice was grave, lacking his usual cheery tone. My heart rate went into overdrive.

I figured it would be best to listen to them. As old as they looked, they could easily overpower me.

I climbed clumsily off the bed and made my way to Aro. He grabbed my hand and I jumped. He smiled and took me into the hallway. Aro did not seem aggravated by my slow pace, but I could hear Marcus and Caius sighing behind us.

They took me into a room, another circular one. It was probably the we were taken to the day before. Streams of sunlight shone through the long skinny windows, making the three of them sparkle. We were the only ones in the room. There was a chair in the center, which was the only piece of furniture in the room. It smelled faintly of blood and the scent made my stomach drop. I hated blood, everything about it.

“Sit,” said Caius, his voice monotone. I did as I was told.

“Well, Bella. We said that we required payment in order to protect you. We've decided on what we want,” explained Aro.

“What?” I asked.

“We want you to be changed,” he answered, smiling weakly.

I gasped and my throat closed up.

“We'd do it in the least painful way possible, of course,” said Aro, trying to comfort me.

“I-I don't think...” I shuddered. I couldn't speak. I didn't want to be changed, not yet.

“Oh, you wont have to,” said Marcus. It was the first time I'd ever seen him smile.

I was about to protest when I heard a commotion outside the door. Jasper and Edward burst into the room.

“Please,” pleaded Jasper.

“Don't do it!” exclaimed Edward.

Aro grinned. “Oh, I'm terribly sorry. Were we interfering with any of your previous plans?” he inquired.

“Well, yes,” said Jasper, his voice controlled.

“Sorry,” said Marcus. He didn't sound very sorry at all. “The only way we are willing to reconsider is if one of you make her a vampire. Either way, she will be one in the very near future.”

I started to shake uncontrollably. I wasn't ready for this new development. Yes, I did want to be a vampire, but not before I wrapped up my old life.

Jasper look at me, his face alive with indecision. “What if we don't?” he asked, his eyes never leaving my face.

“I'm sure she'll make a delicious snack,” said Caius. Both Jasper and Edward growled.

I didn't want anybody to fight. Not now, not ever.

“Okay!” I exclaimed, distracting everyone. “I'll do it,” I sighed.

“Bella,” started Jasper.

“No, I'm going to do it. Please, don't try to talk me out of it,” I whispered.

“Who would you like to do it?” Aro asked, his voice regaining it's usual tone.

I looked at the room of people. Jasper, Edward, Marcus, Caius, and Aro all stared back at me, and all of them had the same look in their eyes.

I knew who I wanted to change me, but I had no idea if he could actually do it. I looked at Jasper, with his eyes still tinted red. He slipped sometimes, made mistakes, but he was the one that I wanted to change me. It was a risk, but it was one I was willing to take.

“Jasper, can you do it?” I asked.

He froze. “I can try, but it might not end the way you want it to. I don't recommend letting me do it, Bella,” Jasper replied.

“Please,” I breathed. I wanted Jasper to change me more than anything.

He moved over to stand in front of my chair. He grabbed my hand and helped me up. We were only inches apart.

I reached up on my tiptoes so my face could reach his. He grabbed my face in his hands and kissed me right there in front of everybody.

I heard Edward growl. Aro laughed. Marcus and Caius snickered.

He stopped before I collapsed from lack of oxygen.

"I love you," I murmured.

“I'll do it,” he whispered.
