Chapter 1:

JPOV

Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! How could I have attacked her? Over a paper cut! Alice and the entire family is definitely disappointed especially Alice, Esme, Carlisle, and Bella.

Bella!

I just almost hurt my brother's love. I need some more self - control. I must get it together. I need to go for a run. I need to get away from everyone. They don't want me – they can't.

*****

After a few days, I decided to come back to Forks. I went back to the Cullen house.

"Hey, everybody." I said.

"Jasper!" Emmett yelled like a little girl. I was suddenly hit by a wave of remorse.

"What's with the remorse?" I asked.

"Son, welcome back." Carlisle greeted. I nodded. I felt more remorse.

"Jasper, Edward left." Esme informed me.

"What?"

"Edward had to leave. He couldn't stay with Bella anymore. He didn't want to hurt her and I refused to leave her." Alice said,

"Oh. It's all my fault…" I took off running. I heard a few Jasper's but that just pushed me to run faster.

*****

I ran up to the treaty line. I couldn't pass it. I decided to take a walk through the forest to clear my mind and give me some time.

I smelt Edward.

I was hit by a strong wave of pain, depression, self-loathing, and many more horrible emotions. They made my knees buckle. Then I was hit by a scent of freesia and a hint of strawberry.

Bella!

I followed the scent and there she was. Bella was lying on the forest floor in fetal position whispering, "Come back" and "He's gone." I wasn't sure what to do. I ran to her house – Charlie wasn't home yet – and found the letter Edward wrote, posing as Bella.

Dad,

Went for a walk in the forest.

B

That jerk imitated her handwriting perfectly! Two can play at that game. I threw out his note and wrote a new one.

Dad,

I went to a sleepover at Alice's for a few days. He's gone.

B

I attached the note to the refrigerator with a magnet and ran back to Bella. I picked her up, bridal style. She inhaled and then sighed while I was hit with another wave, now with disappointment. Her pain and depression kept on getting stronger; soon it was going to affect me. I ran with her to the house. She needed to be in a comfortable place where people can watch her.

As I began running, she clutched to me as if her life depended on it. It wasn't from fright but from need. She needed someone to lean on and I felt like I was the only one who could help her with that. I owed it to her anyways.

I made him leave.

I ran into the house, the door was already open – Alice. Esme looked at me with heroism and looked at Bella with concern.

Bella had her eyes open but she looked distant, like she was in her own little world.

A/N: So what do you think? My first shot at a J/B story. I love them together for some reason. Tell me what you think. Review. =D
