My Last Hope

Ok just a warning I am terrible at summaries. What if Jasper wasn't meant for Alice? What if there was no Bella and Edward was with Alice? What if Jasper had been part of James's coven? What if the Cullens have a new member named Samantha? What if Jasper and Samantha(Sam to most) were meant for each other and just didn't know it? A/U Create your own banner at mybannermaker.com! I disclaim. Stephenie Meyer owns all recognizable characters and plot lines.

At first this is probably not going to make a lot of sense but this idea randomly popped into my head so I figured I’d run with it. Ok so lets make sure we have this straight. Everyone’s a vampire, Alice and Edward are together and Samantha recently joined the Cullens. Recently meaning right after they moved from Forks though she had been a ‘vegetarian’ for a long time before that. Jasper is wandering with Laurent, Victoria and James and is a human drinker. Everyone’s powers are the same and Samantha’s you will find out later. Since there isn’t a Bella(she just doesn’t exist) that means that the coven’s will have to meet somewhere else.

Chapter Five:

Samantha’s POV

“Samantha! Samantha! What’s wrong?” I heard someone calling, but it was like it was from a long distance. “Carlisle what’s wrong with her?”

“I don’t know Jasper. Let’s just give her a few more minutes and we’ll see if she can work herself out of it.” Oh so it was Carlisle and Jasper.

I finally located my eyelids and made them open. I ended up staring into a set of redish eyes. I screamed and flipped off the couch and landed in a crouch. Coming out of whatever that dream thing was, was very disorienting and it took a minute to put everything into place. The eyes I had seen had been Jasper’s and they were only redish because he hadn’t had enough animal blood to change to color. Carlisle was standing next to him with a very strange expression on his face.

“What happened?” Jasper asked when I had calmed down and settled myself back on the couch. “All I know is that you went in here and a few minutes later you started talking to yourself or something and then you started screaming well yelling really.”

“What was I yelling?” I had to make sure that the dream hadn’t been, well a dream and that it was real.

“You yelled, ‘No! Don’t go! Jason!’ That’s when I ran in and then you started sobbing and whispering his name. It was like you were asleep and yet not.”

I got up and started pacing. “It felt like a dream.” I looked up and met Carlisle’s eyes. “An honest to goodness dream and Jason was there and he was telling me to let go of him and find someone else to make me happy.” I sat down crossed-legged where I had been pacing. “And then he just disappeared.”

“Well I have several therories on that.” Carlisle started. “First, it could have been a hallucination. Second, I’ve heard of ghosts or spirits contacting loved ones before and it’s possible that Jason was sending you a message. And third it could have been a dream. It may not be possible for us to fall asleep, but if you shut down most function in your brain it may have been your subconscious imagination.”

I sat, staring at the wall trying to think through what Jason had said. After a while Carlisle left, but Jasper remained. I stood up randomly and turned on Linkin Park. I let the lead singer’s voice wash over me. Music always helped me think.

Are you lost
In your lies
Do you tell yourself I don't realize

Your crusade's a disguise
Replace freedom with fear
You trade money for lives

I'm aware of what you've done

No more sorrow
I've paid for your mistakes
Your time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced

I see pain
I see need
I see liars and thieves
Abuse power with greed

I had hope
I believed
But I'm beginning to think that I've been deceived

You will pay for what you've done


No more sorrow

I’ve paid for your mistakes

Your time is borrowed

Your time has come to be replaced

Thieves and hypocrites
Thieves and hypocrites
Thieves and hypocrites


No more sorrow

I’ve paid for your mistakes

Your time is borrowed

Your time has come to be replaced


No more sorrow

I’ve paid for your mistakes

Your time is borrowed

Your time has come to be replaced

Your time has come to be replaced
Your time has come to be erased

I kept thinking about what Jason had said about finding someone that made me happy. I knew that had been Jason’s spirit in that dream or whatever it was. Jason had always wanted what was best for me and if finding someone else was what he wanted I would do it for him. He used to be my whole life and my soul, but now he was gone and it was time to move on. I turned and faced Jasper where he was sitting cross-legged a short distance from me.

“I know what I’m going to do.” I said calmly.

“What?” He asked.

“This.” I walked over to him and sat down in front of him and kissed him. After the initial shock wore off he started kissing me back and pulled us down so that I was lying on top of him.

“I KNEW IT!!” Alice yelled at the top of her voice and that is really loud.

“Knew what?” Emmett asked walking up behind her. Then he saw us on my floor. “Oh that. Who didn’t see that coming?” I sighed and shook my head as I sat up. I stood up and turned off my stereo where ‘No More Sorrow’ was repeating over and over. I mean I like the song, but I’d heard it one too many times for the day.

“Was there anything else you wanted Alice?” I asked, calmly for me.

“No, I’ll leave you two to what you were doing before I interrupted.” She danced out of the room, dragging Emmett with her. I growled quietly and started pacing again. I could feel Jasper’s eyes on my back as I strode back and forth across the room and a warm shiver ran down my spine. I laughed silently at myself, I was thinking like a teenager with a crush.

“Come on.” I said over my shoulder as I jumped out my window. I darted across the yard and leaped over the river. I felt more than heard Jasper following me as I ran. I had discovered a little clearing around here and I knew we wouldn’t be disturbed. When I reached I lied down in the center and let the light rain run across my skin. Jasper sat down next to me and picked up my hand. He started tracing random circles and stars in the center of my palm and I smiled as another shiver ran through me.

“I think I’m in love with you.” He whispered quietly and I froze.

Jasper’s POV

Shit shit shit shit. I knew those were the wrong words as soon as they left my mouth. I could feel the tense fear that was coursing through her body. Being the stubborn girl that she was I knew she wouldn’t want me to use my gift on her to calm her down. I just sat there staring at her face. She closed her eyes and focused on taking deep un-needed breaths. I think it was meant to be a calming affect but it wasn’t really working.

I could feel her starting to relax again and I went back to tracing the random patterns on her palm that I had earlier. “Sorry about that.” She muttered. “I should be over him by now especially with that dream, but I just can’t. It’s like part of me wants to be with you, but part of me wants to stay loyal to Jason.” She sighed and opened her eyes. I gave her some time to think through what she wanted to say. “I want to love you, but I can’t yet. Please don’t hate me.” I couldn’t help it and I laughed. She glared at me and rolled away from me.

“No, please come back. I wasn’t laughing at you I was laughing at the idea of me hating you. It’s not physically possible for me to hate you and you can have as much time as you need to get over Jason. We’ll take things slow. Nice and calmly.” She must have heard some of the sincerity in my voice because she rolled back to me and settled her head in my lap.

“I want to be over him. He’s dead and I know that, but my heart doesn’t.” She sighed and closed her eyes again. I stared down at her and smiled slightly. She was such an amazing and interesting and gorgeous woman, the best in the world. But I shouldn’t say that. I’m biased.

“We have all the time in the world. I realize that it’s not going to happen over night, but we have eternity to let you get over him or find someone else. But just know that when you start looking I have dibs on the first spot in line.” And with that I stood up and started back towards the house. I knew she needed time, but I couldn’t help but feel some resentment towards the man that wouldn’t let me love her.

A few seconds later a figure ran up next to me. “Don’t go, please don’t go.” She whimpered against my chest. Through my shock I managed to wrap my arms around her and lift her up into my arms brushing butterfly kisses across her face.

“Don’t worry, I’ll be here and be whatever you want me to be. If you want just friendship I’m okay wi-” I was cut off by her lips pressing firmly against mine. Again shock filled my brain making it almost impossible to think. Strange, seeing as my mind worked three or four times as fast as a humans. I responded though and kissed her back enthusiastically.

I dropped to the ground, rolling so that I would take the weight of the fall, not that it mattered and then rolled her under me. I slowly pressed down against her body, keeping most of my weight off of her. I knew I was being too careful, but I wanted to take it slow. She pressed up eagerly against me and deepened the kiss.

I took in a deep breath catching her scent and the scent of something so wonderful I could never have imagined it. I was immediately on my feet and charging towards it, vaguely aware of someone following me. All I could think about was the scent of human blood drifting through the air.
