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

Finally the door opened slowly and Edward was standing in the door frame. Alice cried out, “Edward!” happily and if Esme could cry, she would have. I stood watching, my anger building. Emmett's anger just helped to fuel mine. If Edward thought he could just come home like nothing had happened, he was wrong. Before Edward could move, I was flying through the air, determined to hurt him.

I knocked him over hoping to do some damage. He fought back. “Jasper! What the Hell!”

I took no notice and began to snap my teeth at any part of his body I could reach. Edward was quick and much stronger than he looked. He held my neck, straining to keep my teeth away from him. I growled and lost control, fighting with all my strength.

Esme watched horrified. She turned to Emmett. “Go break that up!” She commanded.

Emmett looked at her in shook. He wanted to join, why would he break it up?

The next second Carlisle was there pulling us apart. I snarled and reached to hit Edward again. How could Edward just come back like nothing had happened?

Alice came over and held my arm. She gave Carlisle a nod and he released most of me and held my other arm. How could you pretend like nothing would happen?

“I didn't. Just because I decided to talk to Carlisle, not you, doesn't mean I don't care!” Edward growled. He was standing there glaring at me.

Oh yeah right Edward. What about Esme? Did you never think of her?

Edward hung his head. “It tore me apart.” Edward whispered. I growled. “That's why I didn't come home first.”

I quickly “showed” him all of Esme's emotions through those last couple days. Edward sank to his knees, clearly in pain. I smiled at the thought. Good he needs to know it. I could feel that he hated not being strong enough. Strong enough? What is it Edward? You'll have to explain sometime.

Esme walked over to Edward and pulled him to his feet. She sat him down on the couch and hugged him in a very motherly way. “It's okay Edward. We all love you. Tell us what happened.”

Carlisle let go of me and gave me a look that sad, I'm not done with you mister. Then he sat on the other side of Edward.

I cringed. Oh great. I was in trouble. Hadn't Alice warned me? Maybe I should listen to her more. Alice pulled me by my arm to the chair next to the couch. Emmett and Rosalie were already sitting in the love seat. She pushed me down into the chair and quickly sat on my lap. I hugged her close to my chest and I could feel her disapproval and love at the same time. I sighed. She glared at me and whispered, “It's Edward's turn to talk. Shut up.”

I laughed lightly and turned to listen to Edward.

He sighed, staring at his hands in his lap. “I don't how to explain. I don't know what to do. The new girl... Isabella Swan...” He paused. Everyone sat puzzled. Well everyone except Carlisle. He already knew. “Her blood... it's so... so... so sweet.” He finished lamely. It's not very often you hear Edward at a loss for words, but that is exactly what had happened. He continued, still struggling for the right words. “I don't know what to do. I can feel the... monster inside me, calling me to feed... feed on her blood...” He put his head in his hands.

Alice bounded forward and hugged him. “Don't worry Edward! You won't do anything!” Then she grabbed my hand and pulled me to our room. I had briefly felt Edward's shock and wondered what Alice had told him in her mind.

As we were in our room and she tried to let go of my hand to sit down on the bed, I pulled her to me. I hugged her to my chest holding her tight. She was forced to look at me. She sighed knowing exactly what I was about to ask. “What is going on?” I asked before she could argue with me.

She just pulled out of my grasped and smiled at me knowingly. She never explained anything. The only thing I got out of her was a smack to the back of the head.

“Ow. What was that for?” I asked rubbing the back of my head.

“Why did you have to do that to Edward? I told you it was stupid? Don't you ever listen?”

“Of course I listen to you!” I exclaimed. “I just...” she glared, and I just shrugged. “You never felt what Esme felt.”

She didn't say anything and her disapproval was still clear. I sat down on the bed and pulled her close to me. I held her tightly against my chest and slowly rubbed her back. I began to whisper in her ear, hoping for her to calm down. “I love this family. You and they are the best things that have ever happened to me. I just couldn't believe what he had done to us. I know it was rash, but my anger, and Emmett's I might add, just got out of control.”

She pulled away from me just enough to look up at me. “ I love you Jasper, but you're and idiot.”

I smiled and leaned down to kiss her.

Suddenly I heard Carlisle, “Jasper. Come to my office. We need to talk.”

Damn. I'm in trouble. What am I going to say to him? I was able to explain to Alice, but that's much easier. Carlisle will never just let me off the hook. I wonder what I'm going to have to do.

I sighed and put Alice down on the bed. “I'll be right back. I have to go talk to Carlisle.”

She smiled, “Don't worry so much Jasper. He's not going to make you do anything too awful.”

I sighed again and walked out of the room and ran to Carlisle's office.
