Jasper and Marin relaxed a little when they felt the presence of the vampires gone. But they then remembered the situation and straitened up. Marin nodded at Jasper and they both got out of the car and walked to the front. The werewolves stood about ten feet away, all in human form. Jasper remembered to refrain from making then angry. He stopped breathing when the scent hit him. He could see that the werewolves were reeling backwards. Jasper frowned involuntarily.
“What are you doing here leech?” Jacob blurted out. Jasper was about to growl but refrained from it. Marin stepped forward defensively. Jasper was surprised to see that Marin’s skin tone was similar to the werewolves.
“He drove here because I told him to,” Marin said trying to assert her authority. It wasn’t working to well because she was practically three feet shorter then anyone of them. The werewolves started to laugh. It hurt Jasper’s ego, and he stood up straighter.
“She fights evil vampires,” Jasper said to stop them from laughing. But he was disappointed to see that they were laughing harder. Jasper grumbled. “It’s hopeless, Marin. They aren’t going to help us,” he muttered.
“But we need their help!” Marin said angrily.
“No we don’t! We can take them on our own! We’re only here because Bella said that they would help!” Jasper shouted angrily. He stopped suddenly and turned to the werewolves who stopped laughing.
“What about Bella?” Jacob asked quickly. Jasper decided whether or not he should continue. Marin had no clue of what was going on. Jasper coughed nervously.
“You had to pick me,” Jasper grumbled at Marin. “Bella is in danger,” Jasper said quickly towards the werewolves. “Uh…evil vampires are after us. Bella is caught in the middle of it. And…if you don’t help she dies,” Jasper said trying to pry into Jacob’s feelings.
“And what do these evil vampires look like?” Jacob said teasingly, not believing a word Jasper said. Jasper rubbed his temples, frustrated.
“Like every other vampire on Earth!” Jasper yelled. Marin looked at him worried.
“And she fights them?” Paul joked, pointing to Marin. Marin then got defensive.
“Of course I do!” she shouted. She took a threatening step forward. She put her finger in Paul’s face. “I could beat you up easily,” she said confident. Jasper started to become worried about Marin.
“Marin, this isn’t the best time to pick a fight,” he said quickly. The situation was becoming tense and he felt like something was watching him. “Marin!” he yelled trying to get her attention. She looked at him about to say something, but then her mouth closed shut and her face was consumed with horror.
“Jasper!” she yelled and started to run towards him. He felt horror radiating off everyone around him except the feeling of excitement that was coming from behind him. He didn’t hesitate in turning around and punching the cloaked figure behind him. The vampire staggered backwards and then lunged at Jasper. He pinned Jasper down easily so Jasper closed his eyes quickly. He could feel Marin’s horror and it added to his. The vampire pinning him down released one of his arms and then Jasper heard a thud. He opened his eyes quickly and saw Marin laying on the ground. He gave a shout of terror and tried to shove the vampire off him, but another one appeared from out of the shadows. Then a sound of something ripping was heard and then growls. The vampire was torn of him and he immediately ran over to help the unconscious Marin.
“Marin!” he yelled, trying to find her pulse. To his relief he found it and started to look for the wound. But then he heard a growl behind him and turned his head to see five angry werewolves.
Alice was pacing around the room anxiously. Jasper was gone for twenty minutes and she was deeply worried about him. The atmosphere was tense and Alice wished that Jasper was there to relieve it. She wondered how she let him go with that Marin. A girl they knew for ten minutes.
“Alice…” Edward said, seeing her train of thought.
“What?” she snapped at him. She had frequent visions, but the only thing she could see was forest and a parked car. This frustrated her. “I have to look for him,” she said quickly. She started to head towards the door, but was stopped by Edward. “Let me go, Edward,” she said coldly.
“No,” Edward said just as stubborn.
“I’m willing to fight you,” she said angrily, turning around to face Edward. The look on her face startled Edward and he took a step back. “He is in danger! I can tell! He is going to be surrounded by werewolves and hostile vampires! I-I should have gone with him!” Alice cried out. She pounded on the door, sending pieces of wood flying.
“There’s nothing we can do now,” Edward said, trying to control Alice. She grabbed her hands and tried to push her away from the door.
“Let me go!” Alice screamed. Emmett then rushed over and helped Edward pin Alice down. She screamed in frustration and then went still. Her sobbing was heard through out the room. “I don’t want to loose him,” she whispered and then buried her head in her arms.
Jasper turned around nervously and braced himself for an attack. He moved in front of Marin to protect her, but the werewolves saw it differently. A grey haired werewolf growled angrily, and Jasper growled back. The anger radiating off the werewolves made him angry, which caused everyone to be even angrier. In an attempt to calm everyone down, Jasper sent a wave of calm through everyone.
“What do you want?” Jasper yelled at them. The grey one morphed back into a human.
“Just go and leave the girl with us,” Sam said. Jasper looked at him like he was crazy.
“No!” he said quickly. Sam looked at the werewolves. “You think I’m going to kill her?” he asked in bewilderment.
“It’s your nature,” Sam said frustrated. Jasper looked at him in shock.
“I may be a vampire, but I have some control over myself!” Jasper yelled out in anger. He became tense when he felt the all too familiar feel of eyes staring at him. “Look, we really need help fighting these guys. You saw what they do!” Jasper yelled out quickly. He knew that time was running out.
“And why should we help you?” Sam asked confused.
“Because, it’s either a war against us, or a war against an even stronger foe! They have maybe hundreds of vampires under their spell! You don’t want to add the seven of us to their numbers!” Jasper yelled out frustrated. The werewolves looked unmoved. “I thought that it was your job to protect the people!” Jasper said confused. The werewolves looked at each other unsure. “Please, we need your help,” Jasper pleaded. He felt sick to his stomach. Pleading to a bunch of oversized dogs… My ego will be scarred for life, he thought to himself. Sam sighed at looked back at Jasper.
“What do you want us to do?”
Edward and Emmett managed to get Alice calmed down and seated on a couch. Carlisle was sitting up and the pain from his head was almost entirely gone. He grabbed his head frustration.
“This is my fault,” he said defeated. Everyone looked at him in shock. “I shouldn’t of met his gaze. If I was better at the time, I could have gone instead of Jasper,” he said shaking his head.
“The situation would have been the same,” Esme said, clutching Carlisle’s arm.
“He’s out there alone with a girl and many vampires out to get him! I could have stopped him!” Carlisle said standing up.
“There’s no need to blame yourself,” Esme said, trying to calm her husband down.
“Yes there is! I am supposed to make logical and sensible decisions! I failed everyone!” he said disappointed in himself. Everyone stared at him in amazement. They never saw Carlisle like this before. “I swear…if those filthy dogs touch a hair on his head, I’ll-” Carlisle was interrupted by the clash of lighting and rain pelting the roof.
“Oh, how cliché,” Rosalie muttered. She leaned back in her seat and rolled her eyes. Edward stared at her, reading her thoughts. His lips curled into a smile. “What?” she asked harshly.
“Nothing,” Edward muttered. He leaned back in his seat and wrapped in arm around Bella. Edward knew that Rosalie worried about Jasper. Everyone did. “He just better get back in one piece,” he muttered truthfully.
About five miles away, a lone car was racing through the blinding rain trying to get back home.
