A/N: Sequel to Two Weeks. If you haven't read that first this won't make sense.
A short time after waking up...
"You are all fucking insane. There is no way in hell what you four are telling me is possible." I said in disbelief.
"Bella, why would we lie about something like this?" Alice asked looking like she wanted to cry.
"I don't fucking know, but it's some sick joke. Seriously guys. I know Jasper was capable of something like this, but not you four."
"Bella we are going to say it again and you need to listen. It isn't March. It's almost January, will be three days from now. You've graduated college, moved back to Forks, and started teaching."
I shook my head. They'd been trying to convince me of these things for the last ten minutes, but I just couldn't wrap my head around the fact that what they were saying may be true. I mean how could I possibly forget almost ten months.
Hearing the door open I glanced over and rolled my eyes.
"Why are you in here?" I asked as Jasper walked in the room. I'd kicked his ass out once already.
"I thought this might help convince you," He said putting a newspaper on my lap. Stepping back he continued, "I'll be in the hall."
I glanced back toward Alice who was watching him with a sad expression I watched as she went to take a step forward, but Emmett placed a hand on her shoulder to stop her. He then went to the door and stepped out of the room.
My eyes followed him wondering what the hell that was about. Not really caring I looked at the newspaper. Finding the date I closed my eyes. Shit, shit, shit. How did this fucking happen?
"Bells?" Rose asked coming closer.
"Honey I know this is a lot to take in, but we aren't lying."
I shook my head, "Why did this happen?"
"Because of some idiot, but Bella we'll help you figure things out."
"Okay. What else am I not remembering?"
Apparently this was not something they wanted to tell me because all three were glancing at each other with a worried expression.
"What is it?"
"Well," Alice said, "Um you kind of been seeing someone."
"Who and since when?"
"Um…" She was cut off by Emmett opening the door.
"He wants to tell her." They all nodded and moved toward the door.
"Wait? Where are you going?"
"Your boyfriend wants to come in and talk to you."
"This is so confusing."
"We're sorry." They filed out of the room but before the door closed Jasper walked in.
Glaring at him I waited for whatever smartass comment he wanted to say.
"I love you."
I chuckled, was he serious. "Go away Jasper."
"And why the hell not?"
"Because I love you and you love me."
"No I don't."
"Yes you do." He said forcefully.
Taken aback by his words I said, "Are you sure you didn't hit your head too because you are delusional. Now go before my supposed boyfriend comes in."
"He's already here." He said quietly and I finally understood. FUCK…
"What the fuck? I'm with you."
"Yes, we've been together since April."
"And we're supposedly in love right?"
"Go away. I don't want to deal with this shit. I don't know why you feel the need to do this while I'm laying here, but it's not fun and I want you to go."
"Jasper just go. I don't want you here."
"Fine, but I'm not giving up and the only reason I'm leaving now is because you just woke up, but I will be back."
"Whatever." I said waving him away.
He left without saying anything else. Breathing a sigh of relief I didn't have to wait long before the door was opening again and in walked Alice and Rose.
"Guys I don't want to talk about anything else right now. I'm tired and I think my pain meds are wearing off."
"Okay Bella, but we just wanted you to know that everything Jasper told you is the truth. When you're ready to hear it we'll explain, but you have to know he's going to be around a lot."
"He always is whether I want him there or not." I said rolling my eyes.
They sighed. Apparently that wasn't what they wanted to hear, but hell what was I supposed to say. Oh yeah I love him too. What the fuck ever? I just didn't see how in the hell that ever fucking happened, if it was even true like they thought.
We sat quietly for awhile. The nurse came in and gave me some more medicine which effectively knocked me out.
When I awoke again my dad was sitting by my bed.
"Hey dad," I said groggily.
"Bells. I'm so glad you're awake. I was worried about you kid."
"Yeah, well I'm fine so you can stop now."
He smiled. "So, the doctor tells me you can't remember some things."
"Apparently ten months of things and from what I've heard so far it was a fucked up ten months."
"Not really, just you being happy most of the time."
"With Jasper right," I said sarcastically.
"Yes," He said simply and I gave him the evil eye.
"Not you too."
"Sorry Bells, but it's true. I know it's hard to understand, but it happened."
"Dad it's just so unbelievable. All we've done for three years is fight constantly and now everyone is saying we love each other and are happy. I mean what is that?"
"It's what happened. You did fight a lot, but things changed and you two got together. The past few months have been a little rough because you haven't been in the same town, but you were going to work it out when you had the wreck."
"That's just so hard to imagine. You have no idea what we've done to each other and to hear that we are in love is just freaky shit."
"Yeah, but everyone will help you understand when you're ready. Just keep an open mind."
"I'll try." I said yawning.
"I'll take that as a sign to let you get some rest. You've had a lot to deal with today and with just waking up it's probably not helping."
He leaned over and kissed my forehead before starting to the door.
"Did you ever get the new car finished, because I'll need a new one I guess?"
"Actually Jasper bought it or he tried to until I gave it to him, but don't worry I'll get yours fixed."
He left the room then and I leaned my head back closing my eyes. Why had my dad given Jasper a car that would have been worth a lot of money? Shaking my head I added it to the millions of other fucking questions that needed to be answered.
I slept off and on for the rest of the day.
When I woke up usually someone was there. The biggest surprise was when I saw Seth sitting in the chair.
He explained why and even though it still confused the hell out of me not remember that I just let it go. We talked for about an hour and I couldn't help but feel pissed off when I found out not only that he and Jasper were friends now, but so was everybody else that lived on the reservation.
So much shit needed to be explained and I hated admitting it to myself, but the one person that could do that was the one that I didn't want to be around ever. Although I knew if I had even half a chance of understanding then I would have to suck it up and deal with it.
Groaning I looked back to the door as it opened again and Jacob joined me and Seth.
"What did I do?"
"You like Jasper."
"Yeah well so do you a lot more than I do so what the hell is the problem?"
"I can't remember it stupid."
"Excuses, excuses." He said sitting down. I gave him a death glare.
We continued talking for a little bit more and he explained what had been going on the rez that I couldn't remember.
After they'd both left with Seth promising to come see me before he went back to California I was once again exhausted. I came to find I really hated that feeling.
When I opened my eyes again it was morning and the sun was shining for once. The first thing I noticed was that I was alone and then I noticed the flowers sitting by my bed. They were beautiful, white calla lilies. Reaching for the card that was in them I moan as a pain shot through my side.
That was another question I needed to ask today. After everything yesterday I'd never gotten around to finding out what exactly was wrong with me.
Getting a hold of the card I leaned back on the bed and read it…
I'm still here and not going anywhere. Jasper
Shaking my head I tossed it back on the table just as the door opened and the last doctor I expected walked in.
"Good morning Bella. How do you feel?"
"Carlisle? What are you doing here?"
"Edward asked that I look over you and I made arrangements to be your doctor until you went home."
"But you weren't here yesterday."
"No, he didn't call until you woke up."
"So how do you feel?"
"Sore, my side hurts a little."
"A few broken ribs will do that." He said smiling. "Has anyone else told you what going on?"
"Not with injuries."
"Well, you have three broken ribs, a broken arm and leg, we had to remove your spleen, you've got stitches on varies parts of your body and a fractured skull. The concussion should be gone, but we'll do a cat scan in a little while to see how that is and check the fracture. Other than that a lot of bruises."
"When can I go home?"
"Not for a few more days I'm afraid. We'll take out the catheter before the cat scan and get you started back on some food. It'll be soft stuff at first, but if you keep it down today we'll work up from there."
"And the amnesia?"
"I don't know what to tell you about that. It's such a weird thing. You may wake up one day and remember everything and then you may get it back slowly. There's also a chance you won't ever remember."
"That will be my luck." I muttered.
He gave me another smile and set my chart down after making a few more notes. "The nurse will be in shortly to take the catheter out and I'll get you set up for your test."
"Okay. Thank you Carlisle."
"Your welcome dear. I'll be back soon."
No sooner than he left the door was opening again bringing Alice and Rose in the room. I would have been annoyed when they looked toward the flowers and smiled, but when I saw what they had with them I didn't care anymore.
Alice had raided my drawers for pajamas so as soon as the pee bag was gone I could change. They also had my laptop with movies and some of my books.
Once they'd shown me everything they brought and sat down I asked, "So guys what did you do in the past ten months?"Glancing at each other first Alice said, "Well we graduated, whet on a trip to New York, moved in with Edward and Emmett, and started working."
"Did I go on the trip too?"
"Yes. It was a graduation gift from all the parents. We had a lot of fun."
We sat quietly for awhile. I knew I needed to find out what had happened with me and Jasper, but I couldn't just bring myself to ask.
"Bella do you want us to tell you how it started?" Rose asked. I swear she was reading my mind.
"Okay," She said taking a deep breath.
Over the next thirty minutes they went back and forth explaining about the last fight Jasper and I had that Alice witnessed. They told me about the plan they decided to come up with to see if we could get along and the parts they played in getting it worked out. They told me how they were tired of the fighting and had just wanted to help.
When they were finished I asked, "How pissed off was I?"
"Very." Alice said smiling. "You yelled at me a little on the phone that night, but you both agreed to try. It took a few days and another phone call of yelling to change things. After that you two seemed to kind of fall into an easy friendship."
"Still not believing that one."
"Yeah, but it happened Bella, but to find out exactly how you're going to have to talk to him. We weren't there."
"I know I just don't want to."
"We know that, but you have to trust us. You and Jasper have something. It happened quickly, but it was really good. You were really happy."
I took in each of their expressions before answering. "Fine, but not today. I just need some time to get everything situated in my head so I can ask questions."
"That's understandable and he'll be waiting until you do. He wasn't lying when he said he'd be here. That boy hasn't left the hospital that much since you got here." Rose said.
"Really?" I asked in surprise.
"Yes. We had to almost force him to leave after three days of not moving from the chair by your bed. After that we were able to get him to leave at night, but he was back every morning."
"Is he here now?"
"In the waiting room."
Before we could talk anymore the nurse came in. As she did what she needed to do, which hurt like a bitch, the girls stepped out. While she was working I thought over everything they said.
Having resigned myself to the fact that they were right, when they came back in the room I said, "I'll let him tell me what happened, but not until I go home."
They both beamed at me like I'd told them Jimmy Choo was having a 60% off sale.
They helped me change into my new pajamas and when the nurse came to get me for my tests they headed out for lunch.
Once I got back to my room a little while later I ate some soup which I hate and Jell-O, praying the entire time that I would keep it down.
As I finished it up I got tired again and decided to take a nap. When I woke up Alice and Rose were back in my room watching a movie.
"What time is it?" I asked raising the bed up a little.
"5:30." Alice answered not looking up.
"Is he still here?"
"Yes, he wouldn't even go to lunch with us."
"He hopes you'll talk to him before you get out of here."
Rolling my eyes I waited for the movie to be over. When they shut my laptop we talked for a little bit until we were interrupted with dinner and Carlisle coming into the room.
"How are you feeling?"
"Fine, still sore."
"That won't go away for a while, but your cat scan looks good, so if you can keep some solid food down tomorrow you'll be able to get out of here the day after that. Which is kind of fitting since it will be New Year's Day."
I smiled as I dug into my horrible dinner which was the same shit as lunch.
While I ate Edward and Emmett came into the room followed by Seth, Dad, Jacob and Leah. They were leaving for the night and wanted to say bye. I felt bad because I hadn't asked for them all day and they'd been here waiting on me.
They all told me not to worry about it they were just glad that I was awake and getting better. When they left the room Alice and the others stayed until I'd finished eating then they decided to head out to eat too.
As they were walking out of the door I called for Edward to stay behind for a second. Everybody looked back and forth between the both of us, but I just waved them off and they went out to the hall.
"What is it Bella?" He asked as the door shut.
"Can you do something for me?"
"Tell Jasper thank you for the flowers."
"Also tell him I'm sorry that I don't remember. According to everybody we loved each other and if that's true, then I know this is probably difficult."
"I'll tell him and it is true. You're making progress too."
"How is that?"
"You're at least acknowledging that it might be true and you're worried he's upset."
"Whatever Cullen, I wouldn't go that far. Just tell him."
"I will Swan. Get some sleep you look like hell."
I flicked him off and he went laughing out the door.
As it shut I turned off the light and leaned my bed back some. Closing my eyes it didn't take long before I fell asleep.
The dreams that I had that night were weird. I would get little snapshots in my head. They were just flashes here and there. I couldn't make out words that were said, but I knew I was speaking.
A few I remembered, they were fights Jasper and I had, but some like the one with me and Alice on a plane or me and Jasper standing in a lobby, I couldn't place them.
Waking up the next morning I was more confused than ever.
