Strained Emotions

This is Jasper's point of view of everything that happened it Forks. Bella's arrived and none of the Cullens know how to react. Jasper is by far one of the most intriguing characters to write in their POV. It's so much fun. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it!!

So I've decided that I should probably change the rating of this to teen purely because of language. Of course it isn't that bad, I just want to warn some people. :D

Rating 5/5   Word Count 472   Review this Chapter

“Ugh! I cannot stand him! Why does he have to be that way!”

I turned a page in my book as Alice stormed into the room. “Honey. Calm down.” At her glare I continued, “What did Edward do now?”

“Ugh!” She exclaimed. She was really frustrated and it was rubbing off. I tried to stay calm so that I could be the voice of reason by flipping to the next page. “He’s so infuriating. Everything he does! It’s like he wants to annoy me! Why can’t he just accept it!”

I looked at her confused, “Accept what?”

“That he’s in love with Bella!” She exclaimed like it was obvious.

I raised my eyebrow at her and patted the couch beside me, motioning for her to sit down. “What are you talking about?”

She sat down beside me and leaned into my shoulder. I quickly wrapped my arm around her and pulled her closer. She sighed as she let me relax her. “He’s still sticking to his ridiculous idea that he saved her because he couldn’t stand it if her blood was spilt. I didn’t buy it when he first told Rose that and I still don’t buy it. It’s stupid. He did it on impulse because he loves her.”

I shook my head. “You know, for me being the empath, you’re pretty sure about that.” She glanced up at me and was about to retaliate. “I know what he’s feeling. I know that he loves her. He’s just more confused than he is in love. Give him time and let him make his excuses.”

She shook her head and sighed, “But I want to take her shopping.”

I laughed. “That can’t be all you’re excited about.”

“No,” she thought for a moment. “But I’m not going to tell you anything else. It would ruin the surprise.” She grinned. “You know. The spring dance is coming up.”

I groaned. “Alice. Not again. You know I hate those childish events. All the boys feel exactly the same thing and it makes me feel all dirty. Please don’t make me go.” I pleaded.

Her grin faded. “But Jazz… I want to go!”

I looked in her eyes and knew that she really wanted to go. I sighed. “I’ll make you a deal. If Edward and Bella start dating, I’ll actually consider Prom.”

Her eyes flashed briefly with anger then with humor, “If? What do you mean if? You do just realize that you promised to go to Prom with me. You haven’t gone to Prom in years.”

I smiled. “I know.”

She laughed. “I love you.”

I smiled at her. “No one knows that as well as I do. And of course you know that I love you. That’s the only way you’d be able to get me to go to a high school dance.”
