Not Quick Enough

"JASPER! NO!" I screamed, but before even I knew it Jasper flung me into the back of the Cullen's dining table. My head instantly hurt, and I reached to the back of my head to see if I was bleeding, sure enough, I could smell that rusty salt and see the blood on my finger tips. I saw Jasper pounce at me again, and I saw Edward run into the room, but I blacked out before Jasper was on me again. I don't know why I passed out, either from the hit on the head that I got from the stair case or the smell of blood, I don't know.

I woke up, most likely just a few moments later, and I saw Edward and Jasper fighting on the kitchen floor. At first I was confused, but then I realized what had just happened. I was cooking 'the food for the human' in the Cullen's house, I, being the klutz I am, almost immediately cut myself with a knife when I picked it up. Unfortunately Jasper was in the room, we were doing fine, just talking, but when I cut myself I went to the sink to wash it off, and I didn't give it a second thought. Then I realized what was happening. I turned around and saw Jasper in a hunting stance. He must have smelled my blood. I saw that look in his eyes. The same one before he attacked me on my birthday, it wasn't Jasper, it was animalistic. I started to run away, and I screamed to try and get someone to help. At least Edward must've heard me.

I tried to get up, so I could get out of the room so Jasper could calm down. But I felt a sharp pain hit my neck and arms. I think I screamed, because Edward looked over at where I was. I looked down at my arms and saw two bite marks gushing blood on my left arm, and one on my right. I also saw that there was a huge gash on my leg. How come whenever I have a little injury, it can't stay that way? It always gets worse one way or another. I tried to get up again, but the pain, or the sight of blood, overwhelmed me, and I blacked out again.


I opened my eyes. There was a bright light over me, and a heart monitor beeping next to me. I adjusted my eyes so I could see. Carlisle was standing over me. I don't think he knew I was awake.

"Carlisle?" I asked weakly.

"Yes Bella?"

"Am I in the hospital?"

"No, you're in Edward's room. I'm sorry, I can't have you going to the hospital with vampire teeth marks in you. It's too Risky." I looked around, I was in Edward's room. I was lying on the bed that he got for me. I looked at my arms, only to see slings and casts on them. That's when it hit me..

"Where's Jasper?" Carlisle didn't answer me. "Carlisle, where is he?". I sat up abruptly, only to let out a sharp gasp of pain.

"Bella! Lie back down. Your back is the worst, I believe you may have broken part of your spine." I did as he said, "While I'm at it, I might as well tell you what else is wrong with you." I let out a sigh, usually when I'm in the hospital, this list is pretty long, "Your left arm has been bitten twice it is fractured." I looked down at my left arm, sure enough, there were two bite marks there, "Your right arm was bit once, and it is broken. Your leg has a nasty cut on it, currently with stitches. Your head is what I was most worried about, you got hit pretty hard, and there is a cut on the back of you head."

"Oh, is that all? I thought I would be worse considering my luck…" I rolled my eyes sarcastically.

"Oh, and your finger is split open. Enough injuries for you?"

"Yeah... and just one question.." I was hesitant, because I didn't want it to seem like I wanted this, I did, but I wanted Edward to change me, "Are the bites..."

"No, no! You're fine, we got all of the venom out," I let out a hmph, Carlisle laughed at me.

"Does Charlie know?"

"No, you're 'sleeping over' with Alice again." I let out a sigh. That was the usual excuse for everything nowadays

"So where did you say Jasper was again?"

So, I would love it if you gave me some reviews. But I would love constructive criticism better. I thought that the talk between Bella and Carlisle was a bit OOC.
