When I opened my eyes, I was in a dark alley. Where the hell was I? What had woken me? A loud barking. I jumped, fearing this was one of Lamia's tricks, an illusion that was a deep punishment at the hands of her hounds. I turned. A chain link fence separated me from a crowd of baying dogs. Phew. I felt strange. It was dark and I couldn't see very well. It had worked. I was human! I felt my skin. Soft and warm. Wow.

I left the alley and emerged into a high street. I glanced at the signs, looking for something that would reveal my location. Port Angeles Bay View Hotel was printed on one. Port Angeles, not far from the new house. We hadn't moved far from Forks, so Carlisle could commute to their hospital. Did I have my cell? No. of course not. I knew vaguely the direction so I headed off. The smells were so different! No pulsing blood daring me to drink it. Just the smell from the restaurants, the car exhaust, the smells from the port.

I turned down another alley. I needed to find a public phone. I turned out onto another crowded street and stopped at the nearest restaurant.

"Excuse me" I said to the lady on desk "Is there a pay phone I could use around here?"

"One on North Street" she said, casually. It was weird. I was used to the accelerating heartbeats, the stammering, and the flattery. Had I really changed that much? I found the pay phone and dialled reverse charges.

"Hello?" asked Carlisle.

"Carlisle! It's Jasper!"

"Jasper, where have you been? Edward and Alice arrived half an hour ago. Alice seemed upset"

"I've had a bit of trouble. Um...I'll be home soon. I'm in Port Angeles. Can you remind me of the direction?"

"Jasper. What's happened?"

"I just need to know the right way home"

"I'll pick you up. Where in Port Angeles are you?"

"At a pay phone"

"Restaurants?"

"La Bella Italia" I said, reading the neon sign.

"Be there in five minutes" How was I going to explain this? I waited.

Carlisle arrived. As I was getting into the car, I stumbled and scrapped my knee.

"Jasper! What happened to you?"

"Long story short, I'm human again"

"How?"

"Cure"

"Do you have it?" he asked, getting excited.

"No. it got smashed after I drank it. To escape. From Hell"

"Hell, Norway? That's where Edward said you went"

"I'll explain later"

"Fine" we reached the house.

"I'll be in in a sec. I don't think Edward is going to be very happy to see me. So I'm going to think things at him first"

"Okay. See you in a minute then" Carlisle left.

Edward? It's me. I'm sorry I was rude in Hell. I only said I'd stay with her to get Alice and you out of there. I was mentally rude because I didn't know if they could read minds! I'm so sorry!

That was all I could do. I entered the room.

"Hi"

"Jasper! You're...different!" Shrieked Esme.

"Yeah...human"

"Wow" said Rosalie. Then she wrinkled her nose and glanced at my trouser leg. There was a stain forming. I rolled it up. Damn. I was bleeding. In a room full of vampires.
