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

3. The Real Girl

Rating 4.5/5   Word Count 563   Review this Chapter

Edward stood up so fast it startled me (and I'm a vampire). “What? Girlfriend? I have no idea what you are talking about.”

Oops... Edward was mad. I tried to calm him down, but I was sure it wouldn't work. I was enjoying this too much.

“Sure Edward,” I smirked. “If she wasn't your girlfriend then why would she sit with your family at lunch today?” I asked him calmly as if this sort of thing happened all the time.

Emmett burst out laughing, “Esme will love this! I'm going to go tell her!” Emmett started to leave but he stopped and asked, “Where's Rose?”

“Oh, we left her to sort everything out,” Alice replied simply.

“Great. Thanks guys,” Emmett said lamely. “Now I get to hear about that all night...” I burst out laughing again, and Edward glared at all of us.

“Don't you dare go and tell Esme, Emmett! She is not my girlfriend! Alice, did you not see this coming?”

I glanced at her curiously wondering if this what she had seen.

“Nope,” she answered cheerfully. “I was too busy looking at something else.” Suddenly her face went blank and I could tell she was clearing her mind.

A small growl came from Edward and Alice just stared him down. I tried to discreetly send some calm through the group. Apparently I wasn't very successful because Emmett raised his eyebrows at me. I shrugged and turned back to Alice.

I walked behind her and snaked my arms around her waist. She relaxed in my grip, but I could tell she was still glaring at Edward. “Edward, let it go. We won't tell Esme.” Emmett growled at me, but I ignored it. “Alice will keep things to herself.” Alice squeezed my arm and I knew she was annoyed. “I'll go hunting so I don't do anything stupid and you will not purposefully read Alice's mind.” Edward relaxed, but was still annoyed. “Oh and Emmett will keep Rosalie from killing us,” I added for our safety.

Emmett snorted. “Right. Like that's possible. I bet she's plotting your deaths right now.”

Edward nodded, reluctantly agreeing to my plan, then turned and ran back to the house. Emmett sighed, “I guess I should go follow him...”

Alice turned around in my arms and reached up to pull my face down. We kissed passionately for a while, but I pulled away. She sighed. “I love how you can do that,” she said addressing my compromising skills. She tried to kiss me again.

I stopped her lips with a finger. “So as payment do I get to know what you really saw?”

She giggled. “Edward would kill me.” She thought for a second. “All I know is that she isn't here yet.”

“She?” I asked amazed. “So it is a girl?” She just smiled at me. “You have to tell me though,” I paused. “Is she human?” We both knew that if she was it would be a problem.

“I don't know,” she hesitated. “Sometimes I see her as a human and other times I see her as one of us... I don't really understand.”

We both froze in each others' arms, lost in our thoughts. Suddenly she looked up at me. “You really should go hunting.”

I nodded and we ran into the woods, but I still pondered what the next couple years could bring.
