I made my way to class in a daze. I didn’t realize until the teacher had scolded me for being late that I realized I was late. I hurriedly went to my seat The morning passed by in a blur. The whole time I was thinking of Jasper and what he meant. As I walked into the cafeteria my face fell. There were only four people sitting at the table in the corner. I grabbed an iced coffee not able to eat anything else for the butterflies in my stomach. I sat down at the table as Jess whispered in my ear.

“Jasper Hale is staring at you again. I wonder why he’s sitting alone today.”

My head turned in the direction she was staring. As soon as he’d caught my eye he raised a hand motioning with his finger for me to join him.

“Is he talking to you?”, Lauren asked insultingly.

“Uh… maybe he needs help with Biology homework…or something”

I walked over to the chair across from him.

“Sit with me today.”, he said.

“This is well…different…and odd…”, I said after I sat down.

“Well I figured that as long as I’m going to hell I might as well do it thoroughly.”, he sighed.

“I have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about.”, I smiled.

“I know…I always talk to much when I’m around you. That’s one of the problems I guess.”, he looked over my shoulder and grinned, “ Your friends aren’t very happy with me for stealing you.”

“Meh…they’ll live…”, I shrugged. I heard something that sounded like “but what if you don’t?”.

“What if I don’t give you back?” I gulped and took a drink of my soda, “Scared?”

“Uh…no…just…surprised…what made you do all this?”, I asked.

“Well I’m tired of trying to stay away from you Caitlin. So I’m just going to let the pieces fall as they may.”, he said.

“Uh…you lost me again.”, I sighed.

“I know…I still say too much…”, he sighed.

“I don’t understand any of it anyway so it doesn’t really matter…I guess”, I shrugged.

“Yeah I know…”

“So are we friends now…generally speaking.”

“Hmmm…friends….”

“Or not.”, I muttered.

“Well I’ll try but I’m not a good friend for you trust me.”

“Why should I trust someone who isn’t a friend?”

“Just trust me…I’m not a good friend for you.”

"Why?", I decided to play dumb...just for fun.

"Just-", he had his eyes closed in anger. I suppressed a smile and a fit of giggles. He took a deep breath and opened his eyes looking at me, "Just trust me."

“You say that a lot.”,

“Well, it’s because you aren’t listening to me. If you were smart you’d stay away from me.”

“I think you’ve made the subject on my intelligence pretty clear too.”, I said icily my eyes narrowing.

He smiled apologetically. And then it turned into this half-grin half-smirk…I think out of all the times he smiled that was my favorite smile of his. The insensible side of my brain sighed at his “gorgeous” smile.

“ So as long as I’m being a complete and utter idiot, we’ll be friends.”

“Sounds about right.”, I stared into his deep, golden eyes.

“What are you thinking?”

“I’m trying to figure out what you are.”

“ You might not like what you find.”, he warned. I just shrugged. “Well are you having any luck?”

“Hmmm….uh…no.”, I shook my head.

“Tell me a theory.”

“Uh-uh”, I shook my head frantically.

“Why not?”, he pouted. It was starting to look like a puppy dogface. I couldn’t resist a puppy dogface, no matter who it was.

“Too embarrassing.”

“That’s really annoying you know.”

“As annoying as someone ramming your precious car?”, I asked teasing.

“More.”, he laughed. “ Your boyfriend seems to think we’re having too much fun.”

“What? Who? Mike?”, I asked.

“Yep.” he nodded.

“In his dreams.” I muttered. Jasper looked at me funnily. “ I’m not stuck up, I just don’t know if I’m ready for another boyfriend or if I’d just be on the rebound. Will you do something for me?”, I asked

“Sure.”

“Warn me the next time you’re ignoring me for my own good.”

“Sure in return I ask for a favor though too.”

“Anything.”

“Tell me a theory.”

Oops… “Not that one.”

“You didn’t specify.”

“Nope.”

“Please?”, he asked looking into my eyes.

“Wh-what?”, I asked dazzled. His eyes had bore into me and made me forget all that I was thinking …and what I was doing. Those topaz, golden brown, honey colored, yellowish amazing…beautiful eyes- NO! No Katie! Concentrate! Concentrate on what Jasper's saying.

“One little theory.”

“Bitten by a radioactive spider? Kryptonite?”, I asked.

“Nope.”, he laughed.

“I will figure out what you are.”, I warned.

“I really wish you wouldn’t”

“Why?”

“What if…what if I’m not the superhero…what if I’m the bad guy?”

“I get it.”

“Do you?”, he asked sceptically.

“You’re dangerous.”, that’s what he had been trying to tell me all along, he nodded “But…you’re not bad…you can’t be bad….I don’t believe you’re bad… its like you’re trying to be good… but can’t help being dangerous…being what you are.”, I said as I bit my lip.

“Yes…”, he nodded obviously shocked by my conclusion, “How did you know that?”

“Well in most stories (especially mine) the bad guy is always the product of a really evil person. They are living up to their title but they want to be good. They try to be good and do all they can to be good…but they can’t fight what they are. What they were made to be. Who they are.”, I explained him nodding the whole time. The silence lasted for about 30 seconds after that when I noticed the cafeteria had practically no other people in it.

“We’re going to be late.”, I said grabbing my stuff.

“I’m not going to class today.”

“Why not?”

“Ditching is healthy every now and then, besides they are doing blood typing today and I faint at the sight of blood.”

“OMG, so do I, well not at the sight of blood, more at the smell of it, it smells like rust and salt, that is what makes me sick.”

Um, do you think you could take me home? I am not feeling very well. I’ll just tell my friends that I feel sick.”

“sure”

“Thank you.”

“Hey Mike could you tell Mr. Banner that I went home sick, I don’t feel very well. “

“Sure no problem.”

I headed to my truck after we were out of sight of the cafeteria. Jasper grabbed my hood and pulled me back half choking me in the process. “Where do you think you’re going?” he asked.

“Home…in my truck.”

“Nope I’m taking you safely home and don’t worry about your truck. I’ll get Alice to drop it off after school.” I almost fell as he dragged me to his car. He got in as I stood by the passenger door measuring how far I would get before he caught me. “I’ll just drag you back.” I sighed as I got in the passenger seat looking like a half-drowned cat. I was ready to go into full pout mode but the song on the CD player caught my attention.

“You listen to Yiruma?”, I asked.

“Yeah I didn’t know anybody else in this town did.”

“Yeah my mom recently had a piano music phase. Um…Kiss the Rain is my favorite.”

“Mine too.”, Jasper smiled. By now we had pulled up to my house.

“I’ll see you on Monday Caitlin.”

“Won’t I see you tomorrow?”, I asked.

“No Emmett and I are going camping. Starting the weekend early.”

“Where are you going?”, I asked hoping it wasn’t too personal.

“Goat Rocks just south of Mt. Rainier.”

“Oh...well, have fun.”

“Oh and Caitlin?”, he asked ,I turned around as I had just been climbing out of the car.

“Yeah?”

“You seem like the type of person who attracts trouble…so try not to die this weekend or anything.”, he smiled

“Thanks, now you jinxed me. I’m going to fall in the ocean for sure now.”, I said sarcastically.

I sighed as I walked into the house. I probably was gonna fall in the ocean.
