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

15. The Night Everything Changed

“Edward! Stop!”

I looked up from my book. It sounded like Alice and Edward were getting into another fight.

“Edward! Stop! You can’t go. You haven’t made up your mind yet!” Alice’s voice rang through the house.

I decided then to go down and see what was going on. As I went down the stairs I saw Rosalie standing watching with a smug look on her face. She was proud about something, but I ignored her and continued to the front room. I could feel Alice’s pure panic and Edward’s frustration and confusion.

I came up behind Alice and wrapped my arms around her, willing the room to calm down. Alice smiled up at me then turned back to Edward.

“What do you mean I haven’t made up my mind? I’m going. I decided that earlier today.” Edward’s frustrated reply came.

“That’s not what I was talking about. You know what I was talking about.” She went silent, and I was sure she was telling him something in her thoughts.

They had been fighting like this ever since Edward had come home. It was always Alice going on about how Edward loved Bella. Edward would retaliate with how ridiculous that idea was. He had never loved any of the vampires he had met; why would he love a silly little human? I knew better. He loved her. Every time he saw her, I felt it, but I disagreed with Alice. She shouldn’t force it on him. His confusion masked his love and he denied that love was even there.

“You keep telling me I love her!” Edward burst after a while. “Why would I kill a girl I love?”

“You haven’t made up your mind that you love her yet,” Alice answered simply. “Jasper,” she turned on me. “Tell him.”

I looked at her with shock. “What am I supposed to say honey?” I sighed. “He’s already heard what I’ve felt and he’s too confused to recognize it. There’s nothing I can say.”

Alice was angry for a moment, but suddenly she grinned and began to sing the ABC’s softly, under her breath. I assumed that she had a vision and was trying to keep it from Edward.

Edward’s frustration increased as he watched her hid her thoughts.

“Fine. You can go,” Alice said suddenly to both mine and Edward’s surprise. “But I swear, Edward, if you kill Bella, I’ll kill you a thousand times over.”

The venom in Alice’s voice at that moment would have put Rosalie’s worst moment to shame. It was a million times more threatening than Rosalie could even dream of being.

“Honey…” I tried to soothe her.

“I’m leaving.” Edward snapped and ran out the door.

As soon as he was out of hearing range, Alice started to giggle and jump up and down.

“Alice?” Her mood swings confused me so much. They almost gave me a headache just trying to keep up with them.

“Edward’s not going to be confused ever again after tonight.” She exclaimed, overjoyed, and hugged me tightly.

I pulled her close to me. “Alice? What’s going on?”

She giggled again. “He’s going to discover that he loves her tonight. It’s so great! I can’t wait to take her shopping!”

I shook my head as she ran up to her closet and began to sort through which clothes would look good on Bella.
