Okay, so here is the final chapter of this story. I'm sorry, but this is it; the lovely little epilogue, from the one POV that has been sorely missing throughout the entire thing; Jasper's! I love Jasper and his little empathness; he's such a hot soldier boy! Obviously not here, but you know.

Love you all!

Jasper's Take

I fidgeted a little as Alice's Porsche tore through the various roads, making our way to the cabin that Edward and Bella still shared. I hadn't had the time to be granted endless patience, like Alice and Bella. And Edward always seemed patient. Unless Emmett riled him up. I smiled a little at the thought. I had missed my brothers; it had been five years since I had seen the whole family together. After Alice and I had returned 'empty handed' to our home, we had finally settled down, content in the knowledge that Edward existed, and was happy.

And boy had he been happy. The elation was practically leaking off of him at our last meeting, and I hadn't even possessed my powers yet – Alice and I had visited once more before she changed me, when we had 'moved to Olympia to go to college', when in reality when we had relocated to a remote location in Canada, for me to become accustomed to humans and the newborn stuff. Humans were still incredibly tempting, but I abstained, for Alice, and I could manage short interactions with them. Anything for Alice.

"Hmm…I love you too." I looked over at her in surprise, and then realized that I had steadily been radiating joy and love through the atmosphere. I smiled sheepishly, scratching the back of my head.

"Sorry."

"Don't be. It's nice."

I smiled wider.

Their cabin was just coming into view now, and I abruptly instructed Alice to stop.

"But why?"

"Just…we're going to want to give them a minute." My own voice was strained. Jesus, couldn't they keep their hands off of each other for more than two seconds? I clenched my fists on my thighs, looking down and trying to calm myself down. Damn this power sometimes, I hadn't had it long enough to figure out how to dilute it.

"Jasper…you alright?" Her voice, always melodic and beautiful, now seemed incredibly husky and sensual to me. My imagination was running wild with various scenarios that we could find ourselves in if I didn't control myself. I felt her small hand being placed on one of my clenched fists and, where her touch used to relax me, only ignited the lust inside me, fanning the flames.

"Alice," I gasped, my warning completely ruined by the sound. I made a low sound at the back of my throat and fisted my hands in my hair, groaning. "Stupid rabbits." That was my affectionate nickname for Edward and Bella, and Alice, hearing it, suddenly understood. I felt her realization dawn, and then tensed as her mood shifted from startled to lustful seconds later. "Alice…" My voice was more pleading now. Whether it was for her to continue and come forward, or for her to back off, I had no idea.

She must have had a vision though, because in seconds she was on my lap, straddling me in my seat. I groaned and leaned my head back against the headrest as I felt her body slide against mine. She smiled and leaned it, kissing along my throat and neck. I hissed at the contact, my hands tightening on her hips.

"Alice…have to meet…Edward…" I was mumbling incoherently. Damn her and her power over me.

Why was I fighting anyway? I wanted her, she wanted me, our lust was a visible static in the car. Ah to hell with it. I let go of all the emotions I had attempted to keep bottling up, and she gasped as I let loose my desire on her. Her head fell back, and I attacked her collarbone and neck with my mouth, my hands grazing along her sides and down, around her smooth backside. My lips traveled upwards towards hers, and they crashed together, sending huge jolts of electricity through my body. I was amazed the first time I could really kiss Alice after my change; it had felt so surreal, and my hypersensitive body had felt every movement, heard every sigh. It had been amazing.

I almost jumped ten feet in the air – which would have seriously damaged the car – when I felt a light tapping on the window. I scowled at Edward, who was grinning at us. He waved, and I saw Bella behind him.

"Heard you coming," he said.

"Heard you coming too, Eddie." He laughed and opened the door, pulling Alice out and into a hug. She grinned and returned it, running to hug Bella as well, while I glared at Edward.

"I hate you."

"Love you too, Jazz. Don't call me Eddie."

"Don't interrupt."

"Well, as much as I love hearing naughty thoughts about my sister, I also would have been persuaded for round two with Bella, which you would have felt, thus continuing the circle. We would have been stuck in our respective places having sex all day."

"You make that sound like a bad thing."

He laughed. "Hmm…the thoughts about my sister part still disturbs me though."

I nodded. "Fine, I'll just have to make up for it later."

"We can hear you, you know!" I heard Bella call from a few feet away.

"Like you weren't talking about the same thing!"

"We were actually asking how each other were!"

"And?"

She had no answer. Edward and I laughed. "So…Bella, Edward, how are you guys?"

"Fantastic. Edward's gotten so much control, I'm so proud of him."

"She makes me sound like a child."

"Well…I am eighty one."

"Well, I'm one hundred and…something. Gah, I lost count." Alice grinned.

"Triple digits? Nice." Bella and Alice exchanged high-fives. I looked to Edward with slight confusion.

"Did I miss something?"

"Girl stuff, I guess," he shrugged. "You are getting out of the car any time soon?"

"Yeah," I smiled sheepishly, having had sufficient enough time to calm down, and stood up outside the yellow Porsche. "You want help with the Volvo?" I asked, knowing full well that either of us could lift it with one hand."

"Nah, I'm good."

"Oh Edward, your CD collection is in there too."

"Really?" He rushed to the trunk, popping it open. The look and feeling of awe was enough to make me laugh a little.

"Watch out, Bella, you may have competition for his affection."

She shrugged. "I'm sure I can think of something." I didn't quite get what happened next, but Edward's head snapped up, his eyes wide.

"Bella!"

"What?" she asked, blinking innocently. I snickered, though I had no idea what was going on. Edward's embarrassment and chagrin was enough for me.

He shook his head. "Never mind. Don't think that sort of thing." He shuddered, but his emotions were far from disgusted.

"So…who wants to hunt? I'm thirsty," Alice chirped. I smiled.

"I'm game."

"Sure," Edward and Bella agreed.

"Let's go then."

The four of us took off into the forest, fanning out to find our individual prey. I let the elation from Edward flow out from me, letting us all hunt in a stage of bliss. I had finally found what I wanted. My perfect mate was by my side, and I had my brother and his mate. Soon, I would be able to commune with my human family as well. Who knows, maybe we would all be vampires one day. That would be cool; to exist as one huge coven. The Cullen and Hale Coven. You had to admit, it had a bit of a ring to it.

I caught Edward's smirk. "Planning already, Jasper?"

I shrugged. "You never know."

"I would," Alice said, coming up behind me and jumping on my back. I hooked my arms under her legs and ran with her by Edward's side.

"And what do you see?"

"I'll never tell."

I turned to Edward, knowing that he would see what was in her mind. He shook his head and grinned. "I'll simply say this; never bet against Alice. If she ever lets on about anything, take it seriously."

I grinned. Long ago had I realized never to bet against Alice.


So there you go! I thought I might put in a bit of Jasper/Alice stuff in there, haha! This story is now completed, so I shall take part in shameless advertising.

My story 'Mommy Dearest' is now becoming recognized and is highly commended, so I suggest you read it. I need two more reviews for 'Losing Grip' before I update. 'The Beautiful Ones'…I'm taking a break from that, but feel free to read what there is so far.

I can't believe that I actually finished a story. Wow. I couldn't have done it without you all! Give yourselves a huge clap and pat on the back! Love you all!

One last review, for good measure?
