What if Edward wasn't the only one who loved Bella? What if someone hid their feelings for her. What if they stopped her jumping? What if they were taken?
Ok, this is twilight and new moon combined. From the point of view of Jasper.

“Bella” I whispered. She smiled.
“Don’t do this,” I whispered.
“Please. For me”
“Please” she rolled onto the balls of her feet.
“No, Bella!” I yelled. She spun around and saw me. She stumbled back slightly and fell.
“No!” I yelled and jumped after her. I grabbed her and we plummeted. She only had seconds left. If she was going to die, then damn it, I was going to do something I had wanted to do for ages. I kissed her, right on her mouth. She was stunned. I pulled away.
“Breathe in!” I yelled. She inhaled a split second before we entered the water. She struggled, trying to escape from the water. No! I thought. You will not have her! I let go of her arms and secured my arms around her waist. I kicked up. She was still struggling slightly. It would be easier if she stopped. I knew she didn’t have much oxygen left and her feelings were panicky. My head broke the surface and a moment later, hers did to.
“Breathe!” I shouted. She looked at me blankly. I rolled my eyes and started to drag her to the beach. She started to struggle again as the current got rougher.
“Stop that!” I yelled.
“Why should I?” she yelled back. She was angry for some reason.
“It’ll be easier for me to save you when you’re not struggling! And if you don‘t I may just leave you here!” I shouted again. She stopped momentarily but a rough wave hit her and she started again. I said a word so rude, she stopped struggling and I managed to drag her to the shore.
“I have to get out of here!” I gasped. If I was discovered then I would start the war.
“My trucks round the corner. I’ll just tell Jacob that I’m going home and I’ll meet you there,” she said. Before I could stop her, she ran over to a little house. I listened.
“What did you do?!”
“I jumped off the cliff,” she said calmly. Then “calm down Jake”
“I have to go to the hospital; Harry Clearwater’s had a heart attack”
“I’m going home”
“Will you be alright?”
“Yes. Just go! You’re needed there!” I ran to her truck and hid while the boy I had seen before came out with Bella. He kissed her forehead and she brushed him off. Then she headed over to her truck. She looked put out that I had taken the drivers seat and she scowled at me. I didn‘t care. I was just so relieved that she was alive.
“Now” I said as we reached the border “would you mind telling me, why you jumped off a cliff? Have you become suicidal?”
“No. I was cliff diving. I was bored. Or rather, I would have gone cliff-diving if you hadn’t appeared” she said it regretfully like there was nothing she’d rather be doing, then throwing herself into stormy water.
“Next time I won’t save you then” I said. She sighed. I wondered what was going through her head at the moment. What could have possessed her to jump off the cliff? I thought she had been healing. Was her life that bad?
“Can I ask you something?” I expected the worst.
“Why are you here?”
“Alice told me what you were planning to do. I was nearby so I headed over. But Alice will be at your house soon, she didn’t know where I was” she was silent for a minute.
“You say you were nearby, where you spying on me?”
“No” I said to quickly. She rolled her eyes. I thought she had finished and I had escaped from questions I didn’t want to answer.
“Why the hell did you kiss me?”
“Do you have a boyfriend now? Mike Newton was pretty keen when we left” she glared at me.
“Tell me!” she ordered.
“Err…kiss of life?”
“I could still breathe" she said scathingly.
“Fine, I thought you were going to die. Can you please drop it?”
“So you decided to randomly kiss me?”
“Yes. Now, drop it!” I nearly yelled. Her eyes widened and her breathing and heart rate sped up. Great, I had frightened her.
“Bella. I’ll tell you something if you promise not to say one word to Alice. Promise?” she nodded.
“That night when we left I told the people hunting for you where to find you. I’ve been watching out for you for about a month. Because, I love you. I’ve loved you ever since I first saw you. I know you love Edward but I love you as well” there, I said it. She looked stunned.
