Jasper was in need of hunting. His eyes were dark claret in color, nearly black. He stepped out of the cool rain and into the crowded diner. The humans, smelling much more appetizing than the food being served, all faded from his sharp sight as he saw the most gorgeous woman he had ever laid eyes on.
Her bright gold eyes shined, her black hair spiked up, and her cheery smile was pointed directly at him. Jasper could feel the excitement and…something else coming off of her.
“Hello. You must be Jasper. I’m Alice!” she held her hand out to shake. He was immediately alert. Who was this vampire? What did she want? When he did not move to return the gesture, the pixie like woman shrugged and threw her arms around him, tightly hugging him.
Jasper was shocked. “Do I know you?”
Alice laughed. “Oh, I’m sorry; it’s just that I feel like I already know you! I’m a physic, so I saw you and me…together!”
Jasper was stunned. After years of traveling, he had never met someone so outgoing, so cheerful, so…perfect. This was one strange day.
“So, let’s talk. We obviously can’t talk here, lets go out to the woods!” Alice suggested brightly. She grabbed his hand and dragged Jasper outside. He was far to intrigued to stop her.
When they were deep into the trees, Alice turned to look at him. “You’re even more amazing in person! You’re an empath, right?”
“Um, yes. But, my apologies, Alice, I just don’t really understand why you’re here.” Jasper told her, his southern drawl making her giggle.
“I guess I should start from the beginning. I was created a while ago. But I don’t remember anything from before. From my human life.” Her naturally smiling face was in a tearful expression, and it made him impulsively wrap his arms around her.
“I’m very sorry, ma’am.” Jasper told her, and he truly meant it.
“Thank you. But so anyways, after that, I got a vision of you and I, joining another coven that drank animal blood! I immediately set out to find you. I kept getting other visions, too, of you and I. We’ll be together forever, you know that, right?” Alice asked matter-of-factly.
“Well, I suppose we will. So how do we get to this other coven?” He asked her. This had to have been the best day of his existence…so far.
“They’re over on the west coast right now. We have to go over there, I guess.”
“Alice, ma’am, won’t they be just a bit surprised to see us? We are random strangers to them.” Jasper told her.
Alice’s eyes glazed over for a second, and he thought she had gone unconscious for the moment. “They won’t attack us, don’t worry.”
“Was that how you look when you have a vision?” Jasper asked her, generally intrigued.
“Yup. Do I look alright?” She asked worriedly, running her hand through her spiky black hair.
“No. You look so much better than alright. You are the most beautiful woman I have ever met.” He answered truthfully.
She grinned and pulled him over for another hug. He realized just how short she was then. Her head only came up to his chest. He hesitantly reached down and pressed his lips softly into her hair. Alice giggled.
“Aw, Jasper. You’re so sweet. Well then, I guess we should get going! And, well, you look like you could use some hunting. Time to try out animals!”
Jasper grimaced but complied. He quickly hunted down a deer and drank it. It didn’t taste as delicious as humans, but he would manage.
The two vampires ran hand in hand, heading directly west.
“Are you sure?” Jasper asked Alice.
“Positive. This is them! They’re going to love you, don’t worry so much!” Alice pecked him on the cheek, and then rang the doorbell of the magnificent house in Cloverdale, Oregon.
A motherly looking vampire peeked outside as the door swung open.
Alice bounded up the steps and embraced her. “Esme! It’s so great to finally meet you!”
Esme looked shocked. “Excuse me? Who are you?” She looked from Alice’s cheerful face to Jaspers battle scars.
“My bad. I’m Alice, and this is the love of my life, Jasper. I’m a psychic, and he’s an empath. Where are Edward, Emmet, and Rosalie?” Alice asked. “I know Carlisle is at the hospital.”
Esme’s confused face looked even more shocked. “They’re hunting…but how did you know about our coven?”
“She saw you all in a vision, and that is what made us ‘vegetarian’. I apologize for her forward actions, ma’am.” Even after a year with Alice, Jasper’s southern drawl was very pronounced.
“Oh! Well, do come in. I suppose you’ll want to join us? I would love it if you did, Alice is such a sweetheart.” Esme said fondly, smiling sweetly at Alice.
The two newcomers stepped inside, and Alice flew up the stairs. “Can we get Edward’s room? He has the best view! Don’t worry, he won’t be too angry!” Her voice called to them.
“Ma’am?” Jasper asked Esme as they sat down on the couch.
“Yes, Jasper?” Esme replied.
“I just wanted to know…are we going to be a bother to you? Because we don’t need to stay with ya’ll. I don’t want to get in the way of your life.” He said, looking down. He felt the strange emotions coming off of her. There was that one feeling that Alice felt often…he didn’t know what to call it. It made him feel happy, and it was as though joy and adoration were smashed together.
“That’s called love. And why are you in my house?” came a voice. Jasper looked up to see a bronze-haired boy standing in the doorway, looking quizzically at him.
“Oh Edward! This is Jasper, he and his wife Alice are going to join our coven!” Esme said brightly. “Now, come and join us! Where are Emmet and Rosalie?”
Edward grimaced. “Out.” He replied shortly.
Esme winked at him. “It won’t be so gross once you fall in love, dear. Now, let’s all catch up with one another!”
Alice flew down the stairs and sat on Jaspers lap. Now that he knew what it was, he felt the full force of her love. “I love you.” He murmured to her. Alice smiled. “I love you too. But I bet you already knew that!”
“Alright lovebirds, time for speed getting to know each other, round one!” Esme called, grinning. Edward groaned. Jasper was scared. Maybe Esme was a bit crazier than he thought.
“Question one; what would you say is the greatest modern invention, and why? I expect at least a two minute long answer.”
