I looked down at the beautiful girl beside me. Ever since I saw her last Friday she had took over my mind. Her deep, brown eyes were ingrained in my memory along with her pretty pink blush and the way she was mostly seen biting her bottom lip. I think it was safe to say that I was extremely interested in this girl. Not just interested bit had a crush on her. Maybe not love, but somewhere quite near.
Not only was she pretty, she was very smart as well. She surprised me at how much she knew from the sheet, we only had two blank keywords that we could not find a definition for.
"So…What's your favourite colour?" I asked Bella. Not only to see her face that she was hiding but to hear her voices as well.
She looked up at me, looking slightly confused.
"Uh, green." She said but it sounded more like a question as if she was unsure. "Yours?" She asked.
"Brown." I said as I looked into her big, brown eyes, the ones that were ingrained in my memory.
"Brown?" she said as she cocked her head to the side and crinkled her nose. I couldn't help but smile at how cute she looked when she did that. "Browns boring." She stated and looked down at the table.
I didn't think brown was boring. Bella's hair and eyes were brown but she was no where near boring.
I just shrugged and thought of another question.
"Are you going to be at the shop tonight?" I asked, mentally crossing my fingers she would say yes.
I had to admit that seeing Bella was the best part of my job. The shop was never that busy and most of the time I was the only one working at one time. I was planning to speak to Bella more tonight, to get to know her a bit better.
"Yep." She said as she looked back up at me, not making any move to look away from me.
I smiled at and her cheeks filed with a pale pink colour that made her look even more beautiful, if that was even possible.
"I'll have a Cappuccino waiting for you then." I smiled and she smiled back.
I wanted to talk to her some more but the teacher had asked for our attention and then started to pick on students to define each keyword. After all of them were answered the teacher wrote on the board some numbers from the text book and told us to read through them.
"Damn." I said under my breath.
Bella looked at me confused.
"What's wrong?" She asked as she found the first page we were meant to read in her text book.
"I left my text book in my locker." I told her and started to get out of my seat to go and ask permission to go to locker but Bella stopped me.
"You can share with me." She said and slid the book in between us.
I fell back onto my seat and smiled at her.
"Thank you." I said and she just nodded.
We read in silence with only a few students talking.
"Finished." Bella said as she went to turn the page.
I stopped her by placing my hand on hers. I noticed how touching her felt like a shock running through my veins. I quickly took my hand away as I saw her stare down at our hands.
"You're a fast reader." I informed her.
She had read two whole pages while I was just starting the second one.
"Sorry." She apologized and placed her hand in her lap.
"Do you like reading?" I asked her and she nodded.
"Yeah, I love to read. I would rather stay home and read half of Wuthering heights instead of going out and getting trashed like the rest of the school." She admitted and then she shook her head while she blushed. "You probably think I'm a real nerd." She joked but there wasn't anything funny about it.
"No, I don't think you are a nerd." I told and she looked up at me.
"Really? Everyone else does" She said.
"To be honest I would probably do the same as you. Maybe not reading Wuthering heights, I hate that book, but I would rather find something else to do than go out and get drunk." I told her and she smiled.
"Like what?" She asked.
I shrugged and tried to think of something I would do.
"I don't know. Maybe play my piano and write a new song. Or go to the movies. I'm not sure." I informed her.
"You can play the piano?" She asked and I nodded again.
"Yeah I started very young. I was about five when I asked my mom and dad for lessons." I said as she looked at me.
"I wish I could play something. I don't have any talents." She frowned.
Just then the bell went and most of the students shot up from their seats and out of the room. Bella closed her book and collected her things. She then stood up from her seat and zipped up her coat.
"I'll see you later then." She said before leaving with me still sat in my seat.
"Okay." I called as she walked out the door, turning round to give me one last, small smile.
I smiled to myself and then got up from seat, walking in a daze to my next lesson.
I tried not to stare at the little pixie girl, who had been on my mind since the first day I had laid my eyes on her through the whole of Gym but I couldn't help myself.
I think it was safe to say I liked her and I couldn't wait to go round hers tonight. To be honest I was quite nervous asking her if she needed help with her History, it may have only seemed that I wanted to help her with school stuff but I really wanted to get to know her.
She was sat on the bleachers with Bella Swan who was rubbing her ankle. that girl seemed to always be injuring herself. Bella looked up and spotted me watching them. A small smile crossed her face as she nudged Alice in the arm with her elbow.
Alice raised her head and looked at me. A small smile of her own appeared on her face. I smiled back and raised my hand to wave at her. She raised her own hand and gave me a wave back. I was going to walk over to her but all of a sudden I felt something hard hit the back of my head.
I looked behind me and found a basket ball bouncing on the floor. Tyler ran up to me and picked up the Basketball.
"Sorry Jasper. I did call your name." He told mr but I just shook my head.
"It's fine, I should have been paying attention." I admitted.
Tyler nodded and ran back onto the court.
I turned back round and found Alice now standing up with a worried expression on her face.
I just smiled and rubbed the back of my head. She smiled back at me, the most breathtaking smile I had ever seen and fell back into her seat next to Bella who was also looking my way.
"Hale! Back on the court." Coach ordered, snapping my attention back to the game.
"Rose! Come on!" I called as my sister walked towards my car in what seemed like a slower pace than normally.
"What's the rush?" She asked as she walked round to the passengers side and got in as I did the some but on the divers side.
"I have to go out." I told her as I stuck the key in the ignition and pulled out of my parking space.
"Where?" She asked as she fiddled with the radio.
"None of your business." I said and drove out of the parking lot.
"Aw, come on Jazzy, I'm your sister." She whined as she chose a radio station she liked the sound of.
"So? I don't have to tell you everything." I replied.
"Please?" She asked.
I knew she wasn't to give up. I sighed and then glanced at her quickly then back at the road.
"I'm going round the Cullen's house. I'm helping Alice with her History." I informed her.
"That's all you had to say." She said and looked out the window just after I saw the cheeky smile on her face.
When we arrived home, I ran upstairs and into my room to change my shirt and try to tame my golden, blond, wavy hair. I reached into my dark jean pockets and found the piece of scrap paper that Alice had given me in History. It had her home address and mobile phone number. I remember to give her my number too.
I walked down the stairs, picked up my jacket and bag that I had hung on the banister and then walked back out into the cold weather to make my way to Alice's house.
When I pulled up outside the big, mansion like house I was slightly shocked. It looked massive with at least five bedrooms. I glanced at myself one more time before stepping out of my car and locking it before heading up to the door.
I reached my arm up and hit the knocker twice. About two seconds later the door was swung open and there stood the beautiful girl that had been on my mind for days.
"Hey, Jasper." She said with a huge grin on her face.
"Hello, Alice." I smiled back.
Her smile was contagious. Whenever I saw one on her face I couldn't help but mirror it.
"Come in." She said and opened the door a little wider and stood out of the way so I could walk through the doorway.
"How are you?" I asked as I unzipped my jacket.
"I'm ok thanks. What about you? It looked like you hit your head pretty hard in Gym." She commented and I just shrugged.
"I'm okay." I told her and she nodded.
"So…do you want to get started?" She asked.
"Sure." I smiled and she smiled back.
"Okay, well do you want anything to drink? Any snacks?" She asked as she started walking towards a door.
"Uh, a drink would be nice, thank you." I said as she pushed open the door.
"Okay, I'll just get some sodas." She said as she walked over to the double door fridge.
As she rooted through the fridge I glanced around the huge room whilst leaning on the island. If the kitchen was this big, how were the other rooms going to look like?
"Are these ok?" She asked as she slid two cans of diet coke on to the smooth, stainless, white worktops.
"Yeah." I told her.
"Good. I'll just find us some snacks." She smiled and the crouched down to search in one of the cupboards. As she looked for something to eat, I slid the cans further over to me and took them, one in each hand. Alice appeared again with a huge bags of chips and another bag a pretzels.
"These are meant to be Emmett's." She told me as she lifted the hand that was holding the bag of chips. "But if you don't tell him I wont." She smiled and then walked round to stand next to me.
"It can be our secret then." I joked and she smiled up at me.
"Follow me, I have all my books and stuff set up in my room." She said as we started to walk up the stairs.
We stopped on the second floor but I noticed some more stairs that leaded higher up the house.
"What's up there?" I asked curiously.
"Oh, my brothers, Edward and Emmett, share that floor. There's a bathroom up there even though they both have their own each, and a spare room that Esme, my mother, and I use for doing our sketches." She told me as we walked along a the hallway and neared a door.
"You can draw?" I questioned.
"Well, I like to do my own sketches of different outfits. I'd love to be a fashion designer when I am older." She said and then opened the door.
The room on the other side of the door was immaculate. There was a huge king size bed that sat in the middle of the room with the headboard against the wall. The room was mostly white with every now and then something pink. Such as the spinning desk chair, photo frames, cushions and curtains. It seemed very Alice.
"Do you like it?" She asked with a smile and I nodded.
"It's very…what's the word?…Alice." I joked and she laughed.
Her laugh must have been the most delightful sound I had ever heard. Before I knew it was starring into her big green eyes, feeling myself getting lost in them. I don't know how long we were starring at each other for but we were interrupted by the door being swung open.
"Give them back." Alice's brother, Emmett, ordered.
"What?" Alice asked, looking slightly confused.
"There mine." He whined and pulled the bag of chips from her hands.
"Come on Emmett, I'll buy you two bags tomorrow." She told him but he shook his head.
"But I want them now. Next time but your own." He said, opened the bag and started to eat them
Alice rolled her eyes at him and crossed her arms. Just then Emmett seemed to notice me and smiled.
"Hi Jasper." He said and I nodded at him.
"Hello." I returned the smile.
"Emmett, get out of my room!" Alice ordered, not looking very happy at her brother.
"Ooh, someone's in a mood." He smirked and crunched down on a chip.
"Get out!" She repeated.
"Fine, fine. See you later Jasper." He waved and the walked out of the room.
Alice sighed and collapsed on the bed.
"Sorry. Emmett's a little annoying." She apologized but I just laughed.
"He seems nice." I told her as I gently sat down next to her.
I looked up at the wall opposite me and saw a photo in a pink frame. It was slightly bigger than all the other photos in the room. I got up and walked closer to it.
It was a photo of a woman and man sat next to each other with three little children around them. The curly haired one was on the mans shoulders who had a little girl sat on his lap with black hair and a big smile that screamed Alice. The woman had a bronze haired boy in her lap and had a warm smile on her face.
"We were about three there." A voice said from beside me. I looked down and found Alice also looking at the photo. "It's hard to believe we're triplets, we don't look the same much." She continued.
"You're triplets?" I questioned, not really believing it.
"Yep." she laughed. "The only thing we have in common really is our eyes." She commented.
I looked into her eyes again, trying my best not to get lost in them again.
"Should we get started?" She asked and I nodded.
She skipped over to her desk, grabbed her books and the flopped down in the middle of her bed. She patted the quilt in front of her, telling me to come sit down.
I slid out of my shoes and sat opposite her. We worked straight for at least an hour and soon Alice became bored. She sighed and leaned over to take a sip of her coke.
"You're really Clever, Jasper." She told me and I smiled.
"Thank you, it's only because I find History interesting." I admitted.
"I can see that." She smiled and placed her can back on her bedside table.
"Do you want to take break for a while?" I asked and she nodded.
"So Jasper, tell me a bit more about yourself. I only really know that you're a twin, are clever and enjoy history." She said.
"What in particular would you like to know?" I asked, clicking my pen and placing it in the middle of an open text book.
"Um, what are you planning to do after school?" She asked.
"Well, I would like to go into further education and hopefully study History, or maybe Psychology." I told her.
I shrugged, "I just find it very interesting." I admitted. " I wouldn't mind going for that career choice. I think I could be a good psychologist. I like to listen to people and see if I can help in anyway." I continued, going into more depth.
Alice just smiled, making my own smile form on my face.
"What about after college? Would you like to get married? Have children?" She questioned and I nodded.
"Definitely. I would like at least three children." I informed her and her smile widened.
"Snap." She squealed and I chuckled.
"I like you Alice, I feel I can open up around you." I said after we both fell silent.
"I feel that same way too." She said, not trying to hide the smile on her face.
Just then there was a knock on the door and the woman who I noticed from the photo walked in with a stack of pink towels in her arms.
"Oh, I didn't know you had company." She smiled and placed the towels on top of Alice's dresser.
"Mom, this is Jasper. He's helping me with my History." She told her mother.
I slid off of the bed and walked towards the woman who was now flattening down her pencil skirt.
"It's nice to meet you Mrs Cullen." I said as I stuck my hand out and she shook it.
"Call me Esme. It's lovely to meet you too Jasper." She smiled and then released my hand. "Will you being staying for diner?" She asked.
I looked back at Alice who was now walking towards us with a smile on her face.
"Sorry Mrs Cu-Esme, but I need to get home." I admitted, noticing how Alice's smile faltered a bit. "But definitely some other time if the offer is still open." I added and they both smiled.
"Of course. Well I must get back to the Kitchen, I don't want to burn anything." She said and then left the room.
"Sorry I can't stay, but I promised my mom I would be home for dinner." I said as I turned to Alice.
She just shook her head and smiled.
"It's fine Jasper. Are you leaving now?" She asked.
"Why? Don't you want me here?" I asked with a smirk on my face.
Alice's eyes widened and she shook her head from side to side fast.
"Of course not. You can stay. I just thought you had to get home. I didn't mean it li-" She started but I placed my finger over Alice lips.
She froze and starred up at me. I hadn't even thought about doing it, it just happened. I let my hand fall away from her soft, pink lips and ran it through my hair.
"I was only joking, Alice." I chuckled, Alice still starring up at me.
I clicked my finger in front of her face and she snapped back to reality.
"Oh, right. I knew that." She lied and walked over to he bed, placing her books in one big stack.
I slid back into my shoes, put my books back into my bag and then fished my keys out of my jacket.
"I'll show you out." Alice said and then walked towards the door.
We walked down the stairs in silence. I opened the front door and turned to face her.
"I'll see you tomorrow then" I said as I zipped up my jacket.
"Okay." She piped.
We stood in silence for a while, just starring at each other.
"Thanks, Jasper. You really helped me out." She smiled and then all of a sudden her lips were in contact with my right cheek.
It may have only been for a split second but it still felt nice to feel her soft lips against my skin. I couldn't help but think how nice they would feel on my own lips.
"Uh, no problem." I managed to choke, heat filling my cheeks slightly.
"Bye Jasper." She giggled as I turned around and started to walk towards my car.
She watched me by her doorstep until I was out of sight.
Later on in the evening, I fell onto my bed and thought about Alice.
She was the one, I knew it. I had never acted like this before, no girl had ever made me act like this before. She filled my mind through out the day, and sometimes at night. It may have sounded silly that I was in love with a girl that I had met only a few days ago but it was true. Every time she smiled, I smiled back. Every time she laughed, I laughed. Every time she would look at me like she looking right into my soul, I would look back at her exactly the same way.
I rolled onto my stomach and sighed into my pillow.
I just needed to find the guts and be a man to go and tell her to her face that I was in love with her.
