A/n: I don't own twilight. The wonderful Stephanie Meyer does.
Chapter 21 Party Time
Rose headed down the stairs first. The boys were waiting in the living room playing video games. I followed Rose into the living room and she cleared her throat to let them know we were there. They must have really been wrapped up in the game to not even hear us walk in the room. Well, me at least.
When the boys turned around, both of their jaws dropped. Emmett whistled at Rose as she went over to greet him. He gave her a kiss on the check and told her she looked amazing. Jasper was still staring at me. I looked down at the ground and could feel the blush in my checks.
Before I even knew he was there, Jasper was pulling me into a big hug. He started to trail kisses down my neck. "You…look….amazing….tonight…" He said in between kisses. When he looked me in the eyes I could see a hunger there that I knew wasn't for my blood. I could feel the red creeping back into my checks.
"Man. It's going to be a long night Jasper. How the hell are we supposed to keep the guys off of these two when they look like this?" Emmett said while letting out a laugh.
"Don't worry Em, I don't plan on ever letting Bella go." Jasper said looking down at me. I looked over at Rose and she gave me a wink. I knew that it had double meaning.
We then headed out to Emmett's jeep and toward campus. I was still really nervous about the dancing part of the evening. I was still very clumsy and I knew that number went up greatly when in heels. No matter how small there were.
When we got there, the party was already in full swing. There was a line of students waiting to get in and tons that were just standing around the house. "Make sure everyone has their student ID's" Rose reminded us.
We headed to the end of the line and waited for our turn to sign in. The boys that we saw on campus our first day were walking past and noticed us.
"What are two pretty ladies doing out here waiting. We can get you guys signed in now with out waiting." One of them said. "And your dates too I guess." He added when he noticed Emmett snake his arm around Rose's waist.
"Thanks" She said giving them one of her dazzling smiles.
"No problem. My name's Ryan by the way and this is Corey." He said pointing to his friend.
"I'm Rose and this is Bella." She pointed at me and I smiled at them. "And this is Jasper, my brother and Bella's brother Emmett." She said pointing to the guys. Emmett gave me a wink that only I could see and knew that he was saying that so that the boys wouldn't get too friendly with me. I could see Corey eyeing me up and I felt Jasper pull me closer to him instinctively. I could only imagine the lust coming off of these two. Ryan was also eyeing up Rose like she was a piece of meat.
The boys took us to the front of the line and the guys who were sighing people in took our ID's. I didn't know what was going on but one of the gently grabbed my wrist and put a brightly colored paper band around it. Corey leaned over to whisper in my ear.
"In case you get thirsty later." He said giving me a smile which he was trying to be seductive with. It wasn't working. It gave me the shivers but he probably took them as good shivers, not ones out of disgust.
Rose grabbed my hand and started to drag me to the door. "Let's go check out the dance floor Bella." I noticed that the others had the same bright colored bands around their wrists.
You could hear the music blaring from outside, so when we finally got down stairs to the dance floor it was blaring. I didn't know how Rose could stand it with her sensitive hearing. The boys didn't follow us so I assumed that Jasper had followed Emmett while he checked out the house. I just hoped that Jasper could keep Emmett out of trouble and not get into trouble with him.
There were a ton of people in the basement. Lots of them I assumed were already drunk. The girls were grinding on the guys in ways I thought were not meant for public places. Rose started dancing. I rocked back and forth trying to make it look like I was trying, but I really wasn't. I was a little nervous dancing with this many people around.
When Rose noticed that I wasn't dancing with her, she grabbed my hips and started to move them for me. After a few minutes I started picking up on the beats of the songs and started dancing on my own. When Rose noticed that I was dancing on my own, she moved behind me and started to move with me. Last night she said that guys liked when girls did that.
And boy was she right. We attracted most of the guy's eyes in the room. The thing that surprised me the most was they just weren't staring at Rose, they were staring at me. This gave me a slight confidence boost and I started trying other moves that Rose had shown me.
I was so into the dancing that I didn't notice when Rose's hands were replaced with someone else's. It took me about 5 seconds to realize that those hands were not the hands that I was expecting. I turned around to see David with a goofy grin on his face.
"I didn't think you would come." He said leaning down to whisper in my ear. I could smell the alcohol on his breath and it made me cringe away from him. He was to drunk to realize that I was pulling away from him not wanting to dance. He turned me around put his hands on my hips. He started to rock my hips to the beat of the music and I could feel his hips moving with me. I tried to pull away from him while looking around the room trying to find one of the others.
Before I knew what was happening, David had been ripped away from me and Jasper had his hands wrapped around me. I could hear him growling at David. I laughed to myself. What ever David got he deserved. He had been warned on several occasions. Emmett was flanking Jasper with Rose in toe. He was standing at full height and you could see all of the muscles in his chest. He had a death glare on his face. It was one of the few times I had actually seem Emmett look like a vampire.
A few of the brothers of the fraternity had pulled David into one of the rooms before anything could happen. We were starting to attract attention and I assumed it was unwanted attention. I knew that I had to do something to relax Jasper before something bad happened. I looked over at Rose for a sign of what I should do and noticed that she was already working on calming Emmett down. They were now grinding in the middle dance floor and she was whispering something in his ear. He got a big goofy grin on his face. I didn't want to know what it was that she whispered to him.
I took this as my chance to put some of my skills to the test. I pulled Jasper over to where Rose and Emmett where. He was mumbling something to himself the whole time. I just shook my head and took a deep breath. I then grabbed Jasper's hands and placed them on my hips. I started to sway to the beat and then started to use some of the moves that Rose had taught me.
After a few seconds Jasper caught on to what I was doing. I could feel the hold on my hips tighten a little. I was doing pretty well if I might say so. I let a smile grace my lips. I was proud of what I had learned.
I started to grind myself a little more into him as the song went on. I was moving my body up and down him a little by the end of the song. I could feel some confidence shoot through me. After the song was finished I turned around and whispered in Jasper's ear.
"I'm glad you forgot all about that silly boy." I then started to nibble on his ear. I ran my tongue along the hollow of his ear and blew on it a little bit. He let out a quiet moan and I knew that I was doing well.
He then leaned over to whisper something in my ear. "I don't think so." He whispered with a chuckle. "I'm the one that gets to mark my territory this time." He said with a smirk on his face. He then proceeded to attack my neck with kisses.
He made his way down my neck and to the base of my throat. He then licked and sucked his way across my collar bones and made his way back up my neck. I couldn't wait any longer and I pulled him up to capture his lips with mine. He lightly nibbled on my bottom lip and I gladly let him have entrance to my mouth.
We were getting pretty heated in the middle of the dance floor but I didn't even care about that. They only thing I could think about in that moment was Jasper. His cool lips moving in time with mine, it was pure bliss. I finally had to come up for air but that didn't stop Jasper. He started to place kisses along my jaw line and then made his was to the back of my ear. It was getting hard to suppress the moan that was in my throat. He kissed me passionately one more time before we finally broke apart and I placed my fore head on his. He had the biggest smile on his face.
I saw his eyes dart behind me and he started to snicker. I turned around only to see David seething in the corner with a few of the guys in the fraternity keeping him calm. I could feel the smile that spread across my face and turned back to kiss Jasper on more time.
"Man he is really pissed off. I can feel the anger and aggression coming off of him in waves. Along with a few other emotions like jealously." Jasper said with a triumphant smile on his face. "I like being able to mark you as my territory. You're mine and you're going to be mine for eternity eventually." Jasper wrapped his arms around me while he said this.
I didn't really hear anything that Jasper said after that because I was still focused on what he had just said. 'You're going to be mine for eternity eventually'. Did that mean that Jasper was going to change me? That he was going to do the one thing that Edward could never do. I haven't really thought about becoming a vampire since Edward told me about Alice. I only wanted to be a vampire so that I could spend eternity with him. Did I want to spend my eternity with Jasper?
I realized that I had a lot of thinking to do in the near future. I knew that I loved Jasper, but was it just because he was the one that put me back together or did I really love Jasper like I did Edward. I didn't think that it was possible for anyone to love someone as much as I loved Edward let alone me loving someone as much.
"Hey is something wrong?" I herd Jasper whisper into my ear. It was then that I realized that we were dancing again but it was to a slow song. I took a look around the room and my eyes found the two people I was looking for. I saw Rosalie and Emmett dancing a few feet from us. Emmett was whispering something to her and then he dipped her down low. Rose had a huge smile on her face and was giggling about what Emmett had told her. It was rare to see Emmett being so romantic. But in that moment you could see just how happy the two of them were together. I then thought about Carlisle and Esme. They were so perfect for each other. They were like the missing puzzle piece from each others puzzle.
I then looked up at Jasper. He had curiosity in his expression and I knew it was because he could feel what I was feeling. I then felt guilty about feeling all of that doubt and hurt while he was standing there with me. My eyes quickly went to the floor. The next second his hand was pulling my chin up so that I was looking him in the eyes.
"I don't know what happened or if I said anything to make you feel the way you feel but I'm sorry. I can't try to fix it if you don't tell me what is making you feel this doubt and guilt." He had nothing but concern and curiosity in his eyes and his voice. I started into his eyes for a minute just thinking about what he had just said. "I love you Isabella Marie Swan and if this has anything to do with eternity then I can't change the way you feel about it with me but what I can tell you is that I promise to always take care of you and love you with everything I have and am. I will always love you, even if you decide that you want to stay human for the rest of your life. I'm never going to leave you." I could hear nothing but truth ring in his voice and his eyes were shining with sincerity.
I wanted to believe every word that he had said but I was still hurt from what had happened with Edward. I wanted to trust him but there was this nagging feeling that I had that said 'what if he finds someone else just like Edward did. Then you have to spend the rest of eternity by yourself. And watch both of the men you love, love someone else.' Jasper could see that fight that was going on in my head through my eyes.
"I love you for forever. And whenever you're ready, I'm ready. Just say the words and you can be a vampire in a matter of days. I just have one condition. I don't want to get into that now thought. How about we go for a walk?" I just nodded my head. I was in even more shock now. He just said that all I had to say was I wanted to and he would change me. He only had one condition.
Jasper pulled me over to Emmett and Rose. He whispered something to them and then pulled me out of the frat house before I had a chance to see either of their reactions. We walked into the woods and once we were completely out of sight he scooped me up bridal style and started to run.
I closed my eyes and nestled my head into his chest. I thought about all that he had told me and all of the feeling I had for Jasper. I could feel the truth radiating off of him when he told me he loved me and wanted me for forever. I wanted so badly to believe him and just spend eternity with him. He also knew who to make me feel better or how to calm me down without using his powers. I loved being around Jasper and doing things with Jasper. It seemed like we never had enough time.
While I was thinking about this something hit me, and it hit me like a train going 90 miles an hour. I was in love with Jasper, truly head over heals in love. He was everything to me and the more I though about it the more I realized that I couldn't live without him. I decided in that moment that forever with Jasper was what I wanted. And when we go to where ever it was that we were going, I was going to tell him.
We finally reached our destination and Jasper put me on my feet. I opened my eyes and realized that we were at the cliff that he had taken me to when we first go here. I could see the moon reflecting off of the river and all of the stars were out again. This cliff really was one of the most beautiful things that I had ever seen.
"I wanted to make this perfect and wait for the right moment but I think that right now just might be the right moment." Jasper took a deep breath and grabbed my hands.
