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

2. Girlfriend?

We quickly grew into a constant routine. We would go to school, take our classes, avoid people, and then at night occupy ourselves. Most nights consisted of me and Alice in our room contemplating how long we could stay like this, balancing on a knife's point.

All the while I tried figuring out what Alice had seen for Edward. It never really worked, but I soon got some more clues to what it could be.

My first clue came when Edward and Emmett were out hunting. The rest of us were sitting at our usual lunch table. It was just as boring as it normally is. I sighed and turned my head when a voice came from directly behind me, “Excuse me. Where is your brother Edward today?”

I turned around startled. I could feel the curiosity and the obsession... God! The obsession! It was overpowering. It was the only thing I could feel anymore. I sat shocked that anyone could feel that. I mean, it's just Edward!

Alice glanced at me, then quickly answered for me, “Oh he and our other brother Emmett went camping with our dad. They won't be back for a while.” She was unsure what to say and smiled gently at the girl.

“Oh,” she said hesitantly. “Okay.” She glanced at us and slowly sat down next to me. “Can I sit here?”

I looked at her and quickly looked away. Her emotions had calmed down and all she was feeling was hunger. My thirst shocked me. It was added to by her hunger and it hit me hard. I clenched my fists and held my breath. All I could think about was how there was a weak, pathetic human so close to me. It would be so easy to just lean over and drink her dry in a matter of seconds. Alice gasped and looked at me startled. Rosalie took the initiative and grabbed my arm. She turned to the girl, “I'm sorry...” She paused waiting for a name.


“I'm sorry Jessica, but we really need to go.” She tried to smile warmly, but it hardly worked. Jessica looked put out as Rosalie dragged me from the cafeteria.

As soon as we were outside Alice reached for my face and pulled me into a kiss. My mind was in a million different places, so it took me by surprise.

“Jasper, I love you. Thank you for doing the right thing,” she whispered to me.

I smiled and turned so she couldn't see my eyes. I hadn't wanted to do the right thing. If they hadn't forced me to... I shouldn't think that way. I could feel Alice getting worried about me so I looked at her and smiled, “Alice, I think I should go hunting.”

Alice grinned and started to pull me towards the woods.

Rosalie glared at us as we left. “I'll just take care of everything then, shall I?” she called after us.

Alice and I laughed as we ran. It seemed like no time at all, and it probably wasn't, when we came to a clearing where Edward and Emmett sat. We walked over to them and they looked at us confused.

I grinned as Alice explained, “Jasper almost killed Edward's girlfriend. We had to leave.”
