Thursday night. The house was full of noise. Emmett had friends from the team over. And trust me that football jocks are loud. I sat at my desk trying to study. I will not let my grades go down just because I moved to Forks and met a guy. But that is hard when there are teenage boys singing "I Kiss A Girl" at the top of their lungs. I walk down the hall into the rec room. "Can you please keep it down in here?" I asked as I stood in the doorway.
"Why should we?" One asked.
"Because some of us are trying to study." I said as I walked out. When I got back to my room I was surprised to find Jasper standing in front of my closet. "What the hell are you doing?" I asked.
"You know for someone who doesn't like to shop you sure have a lot of clothes." He said as he turned to look at me.
"Don't going changing the subject on me." I said as he moved closer to me.
"I was coming to break you out." He said as he wrapped his arms around my waist.
"Oh really, what did you have in mind?" I asked as I looked into his eyes.
"It's a surprise." He said.
"Meaning you are making this up as you go." I said.
"Maybe." He said with a smile.
"Well you'll have to catch me first." I said as I got out of his grip and started to run.
"Hey no fair." He called after me. I run till I sat behind the open door of the rec rom. I heard Jasper go in and ask "You see Bella?"
"Yeah she is hot." One of the football players answered.
"I mean did you see her like a minute ago." Jasper said.
"No I would remember if I did." The player said. "What's that look for?"
"Dude that's her boyfriend." Emmett said. Then it was quiet. I heard footsteps. I looked it was Jasper.
"Got you." I said as I wrapped my arms around him.
"I thought I was supposed to get you." He said.
"You took too long." I replied.
"Let's go." He said.
"I don't know technically you did catch me." I said.
"Okay then, if you want to be difficult." He said before he picked me up and started to walk.
"No fair." I said. He yelled to Charlie tell him I'll be home later. Next thing I know we are in his car and heading away from the house. I noticed as he pulled over to the same spot he took me the other day. I looked out at the ocean. "So…" I said.
"I don't know remember I am just making this up as I go." He said as he looked at me.
"Okay then." I said. I watched as rain drops hit the windshield. I looked at Jasper. He looked deep in thought. "What are you thinking about?" I asked.
"You." He answered. I couldn't help, but to smile. Then we both went back to looking at the windshield. He turned the radio on and a nice slow song was playing.
"You ever danced in the rain?" I asked.
"Not that I can remember." He said.
"Come on." I said as I opened the door and turned up the radio. He followed me and then wrapped his arms around me.
"You're crazy you know that right?" He asked as we danced.
"Never did deny it." I said as I looked into his eyes. I am falling for him. He just smiled. Then he leaned down so that our lips were millimeters apart. I felt his lips brush on mine. I felt a magical feeling as that kiss deepened. After I just looked into his eyes. Even after the song changed we just stayed the way we were.
We were there for twenty minutes at least before he looked at me and said "Come on." I followed him to the car and watched the street as he drove. I thought for sure we were going back to my place, but he drove right past.
"Where are we going?" I asked.
"I want you to meet my mom." He said.
"Now, but I look like crap. And I am soaked to the bone." I said freaking out. I don't want his mother to hate me.
"You're beautiful." He said as he looked at me.
"Sure." I said as he pulled into the driveway of a tiny little house. Cute. White house, red door, white picket fence. The American dream sat right in front of my eyes.
"Come on." Jasper said as he got out. I followed him up to the door, inside, and into the kitchen. That's when I saw his mother. She looked like Rosalie only twenty years older and her eyes showed the pain from the years pasted.
"Darling you're soaked, what happened?" She asked as she looked up at Jasper.
"We got caught in the rain." He said as she looked at me.
"How romantic." She said. "Nice to meet you Bella." She said as she started to cook. She was pulling stuff out of the refrigerator and placing it on the counter. "You stay for dinner?" She asked.
"No." Jasper answered. "I am going over there for dinner. I just needed to get Emmett's movie for him."
"Okay." His mother said as he disappeared upstairs. I just stood there in the middle of the kitchen like an idiot. Then Jasper came down and we left.
"Awkward." Jasper said as we got outside. We got in the car and went straight to my house.
"You should have changed clothes." I said as we walked inside.
"Why so I come here dry and you are soaked. Don't that seem weird."
"No because I am going to change." I said as I left him at the bottom of stairs.
"I'll just borrow something from Charlie!" He yelled up the stairs. When I got to my room I was ambushed by Alice and Rose.
"Tell us everything." Alice said. So as I changed in my bathroom they sat by the door while I told them everything. I just made up with Alice and I am not going back to fighting with her. It's miserable when Alice is mad at you.
"It was the best day, well besides the awkward part." And that's the truth.
