I got my computer and Ipod taken away since I´m failing some classes, that's why I haven't updated! I'm so sorry for keeping you waiting! (Right now my parents think I'm doing homework). Anyways, I won't get my computer back until I improve my grades or until July. But do not worry, I WILL find a way to update, so you won't have to keep waiting.



Bella POV 8:00 AM Charlotte and Bella's truck

I hadn't realized I had fallen asleep on Jasper until I woke up.

"Good Morning, darling" he said with his stunning southern drawl that made my heart flutter.

"Good Morning, Jazz" He chuckled at the nickname and at how my heart reacted.

I suddenly noticed that he wasn't the only one laughing. I looked to my right to see Charlotte sitting cross-legged.

"So did you two get to know each other yet?" I asked them.

"Yeah, we were just talking about random stuff." Charlotte replied.

"Like what?" I asked, honestly curious.

"Like how Charlotte thinks that my southern accent can drive a girl crazy." Jazz replied, obviously referring to how my heart fluttered.

I didn't blush though. I never blushed anymore actually...

"So, what are we going to do today?" I asked, Charlotte.

"Actually, I'm taking you both out for the day." answered Jasper.

"You what? Why? Where?" I asked.

" To answer all your questions: I'm going to take you and Charlotte out, because I want to get to know Charlotte and spend time with you since I couldn't before and I want to make up for the lost time. You have no idea how jealous I used to be when you and Emmett used to spend time together, and I couldn't get close to you." He admitted.

"As to where, I'm not sure yet, but I think we should get you two breakfast and we'll go from there." He finished, taking a deep unnecessary breath.

"That actually sounds like fun!" I exclaimed and smiled. smiled. I smiled. It all felt unreal. I felt the hole in my chest get just a little smaller now that I had one of the Cullens- I mean Hales- with me. I tried not to dwell on the fact that none of them except Jasper and him came to look for me, not even Alice. My best friend.

I mean, my ex-best friend.

Oh-oh. I felt the hole opening again. My breathing was shallow, and I think Jasper was trying to calm me, but I'm not sure.

Everything seemed blurry by now, as the memories came back of them and when they left: Shopping with Alice and Bella barbie... I was trembling violently. I was about to reach for a pill when an ice cold hand grabbed my wrist to stop me.

"Let go!" I screamed. He just forced my hand away.

"Jasper, I said to let go! I need this!" He didn't let go, and put his other hand around my neck. I was desperate though and tried to reach through, to get what I wanted, no needed. But my efforts only made me choke, and his grip got tighter. What was he doing?

I felt a strong wave of calm go from my neck, to my wrists, and the rest of my body. It made my body go limp into Jasper's arms. As I tried to regulate my breath I looked up to Jasper's sad eyes. What was he sad about?

The urge and trembling were gone, for now at least.


Edward POV 7:45 AM The Cullen's House

I reached the living room to see a calm Alice watching T.V.

Carlisle was at the hospital, Esme went to buy some new furniture that Emmett broke, Rosalie took Emmett shopping (against his protests I may add), and Jasper was... well I'm not sure and I don't really care.

All I care about is my Bella. I mean Bella. She wasn't mine anymore, I thought solemnly. How could I expect her to forgive me after what I did to her? I'm so stupid. I need to fix the damage I've done to her though, but how, if she doesn't want my help?

"Edward." Alice's voice broke through my thoughts.


"What are you going to do about Bella?"

"I'm not sure yet, Alice. I'm so confused." I replied.

"I know what you could do."

"You do?!" I practically yelled in her face. I hadn't noticed I had gotten this close to her. "Why didn't you say anything before? Tell me what I can do!"

"Okay, okay. Calm down, Edward. I know you're anxious, but we have to take things slowly to get Bella back. She's very delicate right now, especially because -no matter how many times she says the opposite- she still loves you. I'm not sure why though, since you don't deserve her.

I knew she was still angry at me for making the family leave Forks, but I knew she was right, I didn't deserve Bella.

"Anyways, we need to get Bella back so I made a plan." Alice said.

"What do we do?"

"Actually.... the plan has already started..." Alice said sheepishly. She was hiding something, and she was blocking her mind too...

"Alice... Tell me! What did you do?" She better not have hurt Bella...

"Don't worry Bella is not hurt." She replied, but I could sense her doubt .

"Tell me the plan already!" I was impatient and worried now.

"Do you know where Jasper is?" She asked me.

"What does this have to do with anything Alice?!" Unless the plan had to do something with Jasper...

"NO!" "Alice please tell me that Jasper has not been anywhere near Bella!" She could be hurt. What if Jasper lost control again, and bit her!

I was about to ask her when Alice interrupted me, "Edward! Of course Jasper did not bite Bella! He would never hurt her!" I raised my eyebrows. "On purpose." She clarified.

"I know Alice, but he could easily slip. We both know how tempting Bella's blood is."

"But he's been practicing! He's much better at it now, maybe even better than me. He can control himself." She tried to sound confident, but her voice held worry and doubt.

"See! You don't even trust Jasper! I can hear it in your voice." I said.

"He can control himself!" She said with more confidence and through gritted teeth, "And I can prove it!" She had a smug look on her face.

"You see, Jasper slept with Bella and he wasn't tempted even once!" she announced triumphantly.

She realized she said something wrong when she saw my mouth hanging open and almost touching the floor.

"No Edward, they did not have sex! Jeesh! He went to talk to her and spent the night in the truck! Now get your mind out of the gutter, Edward Cullen!"

I sighed in relief.

"Now back to the subject. This plan is fool proof, I should know." she said tapping the side of her head with her index finger.

"The plan is..."

I'll have a new chapter by the weekend. Probably...REVIEW!

Tell me what way do you want the story to go!

I have to do my homework now, Bye! (I'm sorry the chapter is short and doesn't really contribute much to the story... :(
