This recess seemed to take a million times longer than the last one, even though it was really shorter.

"The Jury has reached a verdict," Judge Herald told everyone.

"The Jury has reached a verdict," Judge Herald told everyone. You could practically feel the tension in the air.

"Mr. Brandon you are convicted guilty of all charges. I sentence you to thirty years in jail, and two hundred hours of community service," he slammed down his gavel and Richard was led out of the room. I resisted the urge to cheer out loud.

Right before they exited, I saw him glare at me. I just smiled smugly back at him before he was led out.

I got up and met my family outside the room.

Here, I was finally able to cheer and celebrate with my family. We had made our way outside, and were heading to the car, by the time Jasper finally got to me. He grabbed my arm and held me back. He pulled me close to him and pulled me in for a long, passionate kiss.

When he pulled away, he whispered in my ear, "Let's go home."

At the Cullen house we were having a little party. Nothing big, it was just us – Bella, Jasper, Esme, Thomas, Rosalie, Emmett, Carlisle, Edward, and me. Carlisle ordered pizza and we had soda and ice cream.

We went swimming and had a blast. It was the most fun I've had in ages.

We all finally went to bed at about two in the morning. Considering that we had gotten up early the previous morning, we were all pretty tired.

When I got to my room I was really happy. Thomas got a letter in the mail that said he'd been accepted to the University of Washington, on a full football scholarship. Richard was in jail until I was forty-six, so I didn't have to worry about him.

I sighed; I couldn't sleep. Then I thought of an idea. I smiled to myself and put on my slippers. I crept down the hall and into Jasper's room. Just like last night, I crawled into bed with him. "Knock, knock," I whispered in his ear. He turned around and captured me in his grasp.

"Hello, beautiful," he whispered back.

"I couldn't sleep again," I told him.

"Did you even try?" even though it was dark I could hear the smile in his voice.

I pretended to think about it, "no, not really." He chuckled.

"You know your safe here, right?" he asked me.

"Yes. I do. And you're the reason for that. Thank you."

"Any time, darling," he slipped his southern accent into the line.

"I love your accent. It's one of the many reasons I love you," I told him snuggling in closer to his side.

"I love you, too," he squeezed me lightly. It was a few minutes before I said anything else.

"Jasper?" I asked suddenly.

"Hmm?" he replied groggily.

"Why do you think my mom had to die? If she didn't, my life would have been a hundred times happier," I bit my bottom lip.

"I don't know. It doesn't seem quite fair, but I do know that if it didn't happen, you never would have moved here and I never would have met you. So I guess you could say, things happen for a reason."

I smiled and pulled him in for a kiss that seemed to last for an eternity.

THE END………….(for now!!!!)
