1. First Sight
"Isabella Swan, from what I hear, she's really pretty, and very shy." I said to Jasper as we walked towards the cafeteria.
"I'd like to see if it's true."
"Well you'll get your chance Alice, maybe you'll even get to talk to her." He snickered as he ruffled my hair.
"Don't push me Jasper, you wore that shirt last week, it's a miracle that i'm letting you keep it." I hated when my family wore things more than once, it was so...redneck.
"Of course this conversation ended up being about my fashion sense, like always." Jasper said as he chuckled.
I beamed at his gorgeous face and nodded. We met up with the rest of our family before entering the cafeteria, and then gracefully walked in, making the humans ogle, like always.
I scanned the room for the new arrival, and spotted her with Jessica Stanley. Of course she would be the popular type, yet she seemed awkward sitting there with all the attention focused on her.
I felt bad for the poor girl as Jasper registered her discomfort as well. I looked into Jasper's cold black eyes, knowing that we had kept him from hunting for far too long.
I sighed and he comforted me, it was ironic how I was being comforted by him, and not the other way around. He chuckled as he sensed my annoyance and I scowled at him.
None the less I was worried about Jasper, and needed to confront Edward, privately of course.
Edward, I said in my mind, Edward of course could hear me, due to his ability to read minds.
He kept his eyes focused on the wall, but I knew he was listening, we were good at this. How is he holding up? I thought as Edward frowned.
That was not a good sign. I could see Jasper in the corner of my eye and I didn't look away as I continued the mental conversation.
Is there any danger? I searched ahead, looking for the reason behind his frown. He looked the east wall, sighed, and then looked at the west wall.
No one else had picked up on the fact that he was shaking his head. I relaxed slightly, knowing he was not lying. Let me know if it gets too bad.
He moved his eyes, up and then back down. Thanks for doing this.
My attention was fully on Jasper now that our private conversation had ended. A girl had paused to talk to a friend at the table nearest to our own, tossing her hair behind her and playing with it.
Her scent hit us all like a slap in the face, a little uncomfortable, but nothing we couldn't handle-except for Jasper. I looked at Jaspers future, I saw him getting up to go talk to the girl, to brush his lips against her tiny throat. To feed.
Edward kicked Japers chair then, making me aware of my surroundings once again.
"Sorry." Jasper said, shame washing through his words as he realized what he had done.
"You weren't going to do anything," I said, lying to not only myself, but my family. "I could see that." I could tell Edward knew I was lying, but he kept my secret, knowing it would hurt everyone more if they knew the truth.
"It helps a little if you think of them as people," I said in an attempt to comfort my beloved boyfriend. "Her name is Whitney. She has a baby sister she adores. Her mother invited Esme to that garden party, remember?" This wasn't helping, even I could sense that, but it was worth a try.
"I know who she is," Jasper said coldly as he turned to stare out a window, into the gloomy surroundings of our small town.
I knew he had had enough of my encouragement, so I picked up my tray and left. I spent the rest of my day watching Jaspers every move.
From him planning to kill, to him sitting quietly, restrained. I only ever felt relaxed when he decided not to kill the human who had made the mistake of walking too close, which few did.
I was grateful when the day was over and I saw Jasper, fists clenched, striding towards Edwards Volvo. He had made it through the day, but it was dangerous to keep him from hunting for this long, we would have to go tonight, which was fine with me.
We hadn't hunted for two weeks and it was getting a little uncomfortable for everyone. I got into the Volvo with Jasper, where Rosalie and Emmett sat, deciphering their homework.
It was then that I saw Edward walking-no more like running-towards the Volvo and sliding in.
"Edward?" I asked. What was wrong with him, he seemed so angry.
Did I miss something while I was concentrated on Jasper? I couldn't think of what it might be. Edward shook his head at me, not even bothering with an explanation, this was bad.
"What the hell happened to you?" Emmett demanded. He still didn't reply, but instead, pulled the car into reverse and drove out of the parking lot.
Emmett, Rosalie and Jasper all turned to me for an explanation. I shrugged, I wasn't watching him during the time that this event happened, and I couldn't see the past.
Instead I looked into his future. I saw him driving to Alaska, to Tanya and the rest of the Denali coven. He was leaving us.
"Your leaving?" I whispered. I was astonished, ehat had caused this? Everyone stared at him, waiting for an answer.
"Am I?" His words stung, as he kept his eyes on the road. I looked into his future. He was driving towards the Swan house, getting out of the car, eyes wide with hunger.
"Oh." It was all I could say to the image that grew clearer in my head. Search parties embarked through the forest looking for the girl they would never find. Edward told us to wait a careful amount of time before leaving.
"Oh." I said again as the vision kept getting unbearably clearer.
He was at the door now, opening it quietly so his prey wouldn't hear him. He walked through the house taking in her scent, watching her from the shadows as she made dinner in the bright yellow kitchen. Her scent was pulling him in closer, and then...
"Stop!" Edward groaned as I watched his future.
"Sorry." I really was, I hadn't meant to hurt him more than he needed. The vision abruptly changed to him driving down the snowy highway, through Alaska.
"I'll miss you" I said quietly. "No matter how short a time you're gone." He had to come back, I couldn't bear losing him like that. If I could, I would be sobbing right now, my brother, leaving, maybe to never return again.
The thought was unbearable, yet steadily becoming true. He needed to tell Carlisle.
"Drop us here." I instructed. "You should tell Carlisle yourself." He stopped the car immediately, and nodded. The others got out silently. I grabbed Edwards shoulder.
"You will do the right thing," I said quietly. "She's Charlie Swans only family. It would kill him, too."
"Yes," He said as I stepped out of the car. His visions changed steadily as he drove back into town. One minute he would be going to see Carlisle, the next he would be going to kill Isabella.
It was painful to watch him in agony, but I had faith that he would do what was right, I knew he would.
"What the hell was that Alice?" Rose demanded as we walked back into the house.
"He's leaving." I stated.
"Why?" they all murmured together.
"It's the new girl, Isabella. Her blood is like no other to him, he craves it too much to stand being near it, it kills him inside." I explained, making myself sad. Jasper didn't even bother to calm me.
"How long?" Jasper said, as his brow furrowed. I knew he meant, how long would Edward be gone, but I couldn't tell him, I didn't even know.
"I have no idea, he has no immediate plans to come back, at the moment. In fact, I don't even know if he ever plans on coming back." The shocked looks on the faces of my family were too hard to face, so I ran upstairs to my bedroom.
It seemed like hours that I watched Edwards future flicker before me until he finally made a decision. He was at the hospital now, talking to Carlisle.
I jumped up and smiled knowing he had made the right choice. Maybe he wouldn't need to leave now, I thought to myself, anxiously.
I checked his future, and frowned, he was still going to Alaska. None the less, he had made the right decision. I ran downstairs to tell everyone the news.
They were all seated on the couch pretending to watch the television when I saw them.
"He did it." I said their heads snapped up at my arrival.
"What do you mean?" Jasper said as he pulled me down beside him. I curled into his arms before speaking.
"He didn't kill her." The relaxation was immediate as it sunk in that we wouldn't have to leave.
