Alice’s POV

I passed Carlisle on the way back to my room. “Alice,” he said stopping me. “You can’t just do that in front of Bella, she’s a human.”

“She didn’t seem to mind.” It was true. Apart from being a little surprised, she seemed comfortable with it.

“I know, but I just don’t want to scare her off.” He sighed. “I’ve never seen Edward so happy.”

“Everything will be fine. Trust me,” I said tapping my finger against my temple to remind him that I could see how this would turn out. I smiled up at him before continuing down the hall.

Jasper was lying on our bed, reading. We didn’t really need one, but sometime it was nice to just pretend to sleep. He looked up at me and smiled. I laid down next him and rested my head on his still, hard chest.

“How are you holding up?” It was hard for him; being so close to a human.

“I’m okay.” He sighed. “Edward was right, though. She does smell good.”

“Yea,” I agreed, “she does.” I closed my eyes and started thinking. There was nothing better than just laying here with Jasper letting my mind wander. I couldn’t help it, though, my thoughts drifted back to the subject of my past. I tried not to think about it when Edward is home, but I’m sure he’s too busy with Bella to notice. I really didn’t want anyone to know how much this is bothering me, but per usual, my feeling betray me and Jasper caught on.

“Alice, are you alright?” He sat up so he could look at my face.

“Yea, I’m fine.” I hated lying to him. It’s not like he actually believed me, but I still didn’t like it.

“Alice,” he said with a disapproving tone. “You know, when you lie to me, I can feel it.”

“Feel it?” I was confused. How can you feel someone lying? I’ve never really lied to him before, so we’ve never had this conversation.
