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

9. Family Bonding

Rating 5/5   Word Count 719   Review this Chapter

I knocked on the door. Carlisle's stern voice came through the door, “Come in Jasper.”

I sighed once again and push the door in. “You wanted to see me,” I said trying to be calm.

Carlisle nodded. “Yes. I needed to talk to you.” I waited for him to continue. “Your behavior today was unacceptable. You should not have reacted that way. Is there anything worth my time for you to explain?”

I hesitated. “Yes sir,” I decide formality was probably for the better in this situation. “I really couldn't help myself. I know it is not a good enough excuse, but my anger was just doubled by Emmett's. The whole situation got out of hand. It won't happen again.”

Carlisle's lip twitched. It almost looked like he had to fight back a smile. I relaxed realizing that none of his emotions said that he was really that mad. “Well it better not,” Carlisle said, still playing his role of father.

“Of course not,” I agreed. I hope I get off easy.

Suddenly he grinned. It threw me a little of guard. Had Edward and I finally driven him crazy? He laughed and said, “Well go downstairs and see if your brother wants to play baseball. Alice told me there's going to be a storm tonight. It's perfect timing to do some family bonding.” He laughed again and turned back to his work. This conversation was obviously done.

I laughed along and said, “Sure, sounds fun,” and then I was back in my room.

Alice was laughing at the relieved expression on my face. “Come on Jasper, did you honestly think Carlisle was going to punish you. It was just a harmless boy fight.” She continued laughing as I glared at her.

“You saw it all, didn't you?” She just ignored me. She inspected her nails like she wasn't paying any attention. I growled playfully at her. “Oh you're going to get it, Mrs. Hale.” I only called her that when I wanted to bug her. I dived at her on the bed and threw her on her back.

She giggled like crazy. “Oh really? And what are you going to do?” She played along. “Sit on me, cause we all know that could kill anyone.”

I growled again and said, “No, I'm going to do this.” My mouth was on hers then silencing her giggles.

I was about to deepen our kiss when Alice pulled away. I sighed in exasperation. Why did she always have to do that.

“You know. You should go downstairs and tell Edward about the ball game. That is the one thing Carlisle told you to do.”

I rolled my eyes. “Fine, but I'm not done with you.”

She giggled as she pulled me from the room and downstairs. We walked into the room holding hands. Emmett and Edward were playing a racing game and Edward was winning.

“Dude! How do you do that?”Emmett roared. “I swear! You cheat! You have to!”

Rosalie rolled her eyes, “Honey, it's just a game.”

“But... But...” Emmett whined.

“Dude grow up,” I said as I sat down on the chair and Alice sat on my lap.

Edward turned to look at me. His nervousness was very clear.

I'm sorry Edward. Welcome home. He grinned at me, then turned back to his game. He was still beating Emmett even though he hadn't been looking for thirty seconds. “Oh yeah,” I said out loud to everyone. “There's going to be a storm tonight and Carlisle was wondering...”

“Baseball? Really?!” Emmett interrupted. I nodded grinning at how much like a little kid he was. “Yes! I'll kick your ass out there Edward. Then we'll see whose the best.”

Edward turned to stare at Emmett. An expression of pure shock on his face. “Oh no! Emmett please! You can't do that to me!” The sarcasm was so thick I think anyone could have caught on.

Rosalie glared playfully at Edward, “Oh, but he can.”

Alice laughed, “Guys, grow up. Can't we act like were all older than ninety.”

We all laughed as Esme walked in. She looked at us sitting around laughing with each other and her happiness was very strong. She smiled as she said, “Well it's nice to see you all are getting along again.”

I laughed at how motherly she could be.
