"Shoot" I muttered when the paper sliced my finger; I pulled it out to examine the damage. A single drop of blood oozed from the tiny cut. It all happened very quickly then. "No!" Edward roared. He threw himself at me, flinging me back across the table. It fell, as I did, scattering the cake and the presents, the flowers and the plates. I landed in the mess of shattered crystal

Jasper slammed into Edward, and the sound was like the crash of boulders in a rock slide. Jasper feinted to one side but quickly changed direction as soon as Edward did. I could tell that Edward was reading Jaspers mind.

Jasper that was bought up to fight made a quick second decision which Edward didn't have time to read. He got past Edward and came at me. He was on me before I could scream.

I saw his teeth go into my arm before I felt it but when I did I was close to passing out. I tried ripping my arm from Japers jaw but couldn't. I knew I wouldn't have been able to Jasper was to strong. The others were trying to get him off me but Jasper was in a feeding frenzy.

He was much stronger than before. I felt weak. The fire has already past my shoulder and into my chest. My vision was blackening out and the last thing I remember was someone pulling Jasper off me. I saw Edwards face and drifted into the darkness, hoping to escape the fire.

I was so scared this would happen. I am all wrong for my Bella. I should leave her I know should. But deep down I knew I would never be able to actually leave her. Today when Jasper bit her I was beyond furious. He is my brother while Bella is my love. If I can resist her blood why can't he. I would never hurt anybody he loves or carers about. How could I choose between them? I love Bella and Jasper in two different ways, but I couldn't live without Bella.

After Jasper bit her and I pulled him off her I tried to suck the blood out like I did the last with Laurent. Her blood tasted even better than I remember. Even my memory didn't do it justice.

Jasper how could you? I took as much as I thought was safe since Jasper already taken heaps. When I didn't taste the poison Jasper infected her with I was devastated. I looked up at Carlisle and asked " It's too late isn't it?" I heard the answer before I he said it. "Yes it is Edward I am sorry but there is nothing you can do." I couldn't look him in the eye. "Will she need the morphine?" I asked Carlisle. All he did was nod his head "She might you will have to wait until she wakes up to see. Her skin might have started to change by the time she needs it Edward."

There was a pause while I watched Bella breathe in and out. I also listened to her heart which I knew would stop too soon for me. Forever is too soon for me actually. How could Jasper? "Edward..." Carlisle said hesitantly. I knew what he was about to say. "No he damned her to hell." "Edward it wasn't his fault, you were going to change her anyway" "No "I said raising my voice.



"Carlisle please let it go. I am taking Bella with me and some morphine in case." "Okay" was all Carlisle said moving to go and get some morphine for Bella. I bent over and picked Bella up and by the time I had her in my arms, Carlisle had to come back with the morphine. As soon as Carlisle passed the morphine to me Alice came rushing into the room.

"Edward please don't" "I will be back I promise to you." Alice fell silent as soon as I said this, probably having seen the future change. I turned my back on her and walked out the door with Bella in my arms.
