White Rhapsody

Ryuko Ishida

Ryuko: I thought I'd just open up a new story to put in all my little 100-word stories that I've written on Live Journal challenge so that I can organized them better and to share them all around. Hope all of these are enjoyable. And this will most likely be updated once every week (since each week's prompt / challenge is different).

01. MARRIAGE

Title: Photo
Team: Vampires
Challenge: Marriage
Words Count: 100
Rating: G
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Jasper/Alice
Warnings: None whatsoever
Author's Notes: I didn't know writing a story in exactly a hundred words would be this difficult. sighs Comments would be nice.

I can never understand how it turns out like this, I muse as my finger traces along the glossy surface delicately. It's a photo of our wedding – years ago – the one and only time we had married, officially speaking.

Her face was forever young, smiling in a way that suggested she knew of something that nobody did, which was probably the case. Unknowingly, a corner of my lips tucks into a smile as I remember the slight squeeze of her reassuring fingers that calmed down my nerves all those years ago.

"Jasper?"

"Yes, Alice?"

"Give it back." I sigh. 'Damn.'

Title: The Night Before
Team: Vampires
Challenge: Marriage
Words Count: 100
Rating: G
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Jasper/Alice
Warnings: None whatsoever
Author's Notes: Comment, please?

I pull the grass savagely, trying to make my mind drift onto something... less nerve-wrecking. I've been working on that for several hours while lying down to look at the stars twinkling knowingly, as if giving me some kind of signs that I've yet to decipher.

"What're you thinking?" The voice haunting my soul asks.

"Can't you tell?"

"I can only see into future."

"Fair enough. Will I make a fool of myself tomorrow?"

"That's what you're worrying about?" Amusement's apparent.

"No... It's just... I've never understand why."

"You already knew, didn't you?" I reach out; she echoes my thoughts.

Title: Enough
Team: Vampires
Challenge: Marriage
Word Count: 100
Rating: G
Character(s)/Pairing(s): EdwardXBella
Point of View: Jacob
Warnings: Na-da
Author's Notes: Never written anything with Jacob so this is a new one (for me, at least). Enjoy.

'Filthy bloodsucker,' I thought, not caring if Edward Cullen could hear my curse. Stoicly, I kept my presense hidden behind the pillar at the back of the chapel, witnessing all this. I was surprised I hadn't screamed out in rage yet, when he took her hand and vowed their undying love to each other.God. I wanted to kick something really badly.

I felt my body shuddered, then calmed. Her eyes were bright with happiness that only he could give her. I was just a friend.

Hadn't I told her that this was already enough?

Yes.

But she'd never know.

Title: Champagne
Team: Vampire
Challenge: Marriage
Word Count: 100
Rating: G
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Rosalie/Emmett
Point of View: Edward
Warnings: None
Author's Notes: Tell me what you think, thanks.

Soft tinkling of ivory keys drifted sweetly in the air. Numerous of different thoughts that surrounded me provided an additional buzz in my head. Unconsciously, I picked up the glass – in which the delicate, bubbly liquid shivered – and stared hard at it, through it.

I could see Rosalie and Emmett dancing for what must've been their umpteenth wedding piece. A small grin lingered on my lips. Rosalie looked happy – probably satisfied by all the attention – and Emmett… well, he was just happy knowing Rose was.

Sipping quietly, I wondered when my time would come.

Or rather, would it ever come?

Title: Trick
Team: Vampire
Challenge: Marriage
Word Count: 100
Rating: G
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Alice/Jasper
Warnings: Na-da
Author's Notes: By this time around, you'd be able to guess that I'm a huge fan of Alice/Jasper pairing.

"Let's get married," she says it so casually. So suddenly.

"What?" I stutter, almost choking on my own spit – or venom, rather. Whatever. That's beside the point.

"You don't want to?" She's not frowning like I've half-expected, but her eyebrow's raised – an expression of puzzlement.

"Like you wouldn't have known," I roll my eyes. "Besides, isn't it supposed to be the man's job to ask that?"

"Well, someone's got to do it."

"How would you know I wasn't going to?" I see her smile; she's trying to hide it, but it's there.

Damn. Did I just say that out loud?
