“Wow Jasper. This is a lot to take in” she said. I nodded. She stared at me, then suddenly leaned over to me and kissed my cheek. It took all my focus not to turn round and jump on her.

“Thank you. For everything. For not abandoning me when everyone else did”

“Not everyone abandoned you. Alice never did. Carlisle, Esme, Emmett, they all miss you so much. Edward does to”

“No. he doesn’t love me. It hurts but its true” she sighed. I reached out and patted her hand.

“Oh, I never got to apologies for your birthday. Nearly killing you and all that”

“That’s okay. You can’t help what you are,” she said.

“Hmmm” I said. She was very relaxed. I was more worried about Alice’s reaction. Hoping that she hadn’t seen what I’d said. We reached Bella’s house and there was no sign of Alice. Bella sat on the sofa and looked very sad.

“Jasper. I’m falling apart”

“I know. What he said was too cruel to imagine. It would be like Rosalie saying that to Emmett” or Alice saying it to me. Then I’d be free for Bella.

“Jasper. Help me” her pain was overwhelming. I couldn’t think, it was so intense. I sat next to her. Tears were in her eyes. I put my hand on her arm and tried to give her happiness.

“Thanks” she choked out. She still looked sad, so I wrapped my arm around her shoulder. Not a good idea considering the thoughts going through my head. She moved closer to me. I could feel her heat through my shirt. I rocked her slightly and I felt a new emotion. It was the emotion I had been feeling for ages. But it wasn’t coming from me. It came from the girl next to me. I looked down at her. She was peering up at me.

“Jasper? What will you do about Alice?”

“I don’t know. She’ll be here in a few hours” then she kissed me. I had been looking at the ceiling. When I looked down, she was closer. And she kissed me. I kissed her back, slightly bewildered, but enjoying it. Her arms wrapped tightly around me. My arms braided in her hair. I felt her tongue trace my bottom lip. It was hard not to get carried away. I heard a car coming round the corner. I pulled away and immediately felt her hurt.

“Your dad is coming. I don’t think he should know that I’m here” she nodded and I ran. I went and hid in the tree outside the house to keep an eye out for Alice. Charlie was sad. Then I smelt it. A car was coming down the road and it stunk! It stopped and three tall boys got out. One was Bella’s friend. A second car arrived, containing a tall boy and a man in a wheelchair. The boy went and knocked the door.

“Charlie? We’re going to see Sue. You coming?”

“Sure. But I don’t know if I should leave Bella alone”

“Jake can stay with her” This was bad. These people were wrong. It was something to do with the way they smelt.

“Ok” Charlie got into the car and Bella’s friend, Jacob, went into the house.

“Where is he?” he asked, menacingly.

“Who?”

“Bella, I can smell him all over you! Where is the parasite?” he yelled at her.

“Jake, you’re scaring me”

“Bella, that bloodsucker is here! The one who ripped you in pieces! Or is it another one? You’ve had your heart broken once, isn’t that enough? Obviously not as you’re shacking up with the first bloodsucker going!” I dropped and watched through the window.

“Jake! Calm down! This is my life! Let me live it!” she shouted back. She looked so small and fragile in comparison.

“Not when you’re living it wrong! He’s not human, he’ll hurt you!” he stared at her and she stared at him. Then he kissed her. I wasn’t standing for that. She was mine! I practically ripped the door off in my hurry to get through it.

“Get your hands off her!” I yelled at him. He spun around, but his arm was still wrapped around her waist.

“So you’re the bloodsucker! Well, if you want her, you’re going to have to fight me for her”
