He stared at the ring. It was obviously recognized. It wasn’t a proper mood ring, just something from his childhood that he called a mood ring. But it wasn’t one of those cheap fake ones.
“It’s a ring,” I said simply. He shuddered slightly, and then stared into space. It looked like memories were flooding back to him. Then he shook his head, as though trying to clear it. He stared at me.
“Bella?” he asked quietly “what is going on”
“Jasper! Yes!” I nearly yelled. I propelled myself over to him and hugged him. He was very surprised.
“Sorry. I’m just glad we got you back”
“All you had to do was show him his ring. Hardly difficult”
“It is Rosalie. I wouldn’t have given that ring to someone who didn’t need it. Someone who my family and I cared deeply about” I blushed.
“So, you said got me back, where have I been?” he asked.
“Anya, Edward’s new girlfriend has made it so Bella is meant to be dating Mike Newton. She has a gift”
“So you managed to break Rosalie and Emmett out?” he asked.
“No. We broke Emmett out” I explained.
“I don’t understand”
“I was the one who brought Anya here in the first place. I was sick of Bella so I decided to get rid of her in a way that wouldn’t hurt anyone. She was supposed to blank Bella as well”
“I don’t think she can. She came back a while ago and tried again but nothing happened. It must be like Edward, his trick can’t work on me,” I explained.
“So, we’re getting everyone back?”
“Yes. But you mustn’t tell Alice. She’ll probably tell Edward. And don’t think about it either!” Rosalie said. He nodded.
“We started on Esme but we need to finish it. Then Carlisle, then Alice and finally Edward”
“Edward’s Lullaby!” Emmett said.
“Esme was there when he composed it. If we played it for her, she might recognize it!” I ran upstairs and pulled out the little CD that Alice and Edward had given me. We put it into the CD player and Jasper pressed play. Esme came bustling in.
“Hello kids. How are you?”
“What beautiful music”
“It’s a lullaby someone special made for me,” I said. Her eyes widened. She looked like she was about to scream. Rosalie obviously thought the same as she ran over to Esme and whispered in her ear. Esme nodded in response. Then she scowled.
“I can’t believe you sometimes Rosalie! But why don’t you just ask Anya to remove the spell?”
“Not everyone is as compassionate as you Esme”
“Will you help us get Carlisle back?”
“Yes. He spent an awful amount of time stitching Bella up. It must be somewhere”
“My car accident. That might remind him. But what are the chances of me being in a car accident and Edward saving me?”
“Not very big” said Jasper “but I could. We just have to re-create the accident and then I’ll tell Carlisle that you’re suspicious. That’s what Edward did”
“But won’t Edward try and kill me?”
“Even better! He’s going away with Anya on Monday. We can do it then!” said Rosalie. She was obviously happy about the idea of hitting me with a van.
“Let’s do this! Just remember, don’t think about it!”
