"Excuse me, ma'am, I'm looking for a book on wolves" I said softly.
"The nature section is over there" The woman whispered back, pointing to some bookshelves on the other side of the library. I quickly thanked her and got to work right away. Scanning the titles, I finally found just what I was looking for.
I reached for the book, but it was too high. I stood on my tiptoes and gave a little jump, straining to reach it. Suddenly, a hand grabbed the book and brought it down for me.
I spun around to see the cutest guy ever. He was impossibly tall and muscular. His honey blonde hair fell over his eyes as he shyly looked at me.
"Thank you so much!" I said, smiling happily at him. "I couldn't have reached that in a million years!"
"It was nothing" He said, looking down at me. I felt tiny beside him, but I also felt completely safe.
"My name is Alice Brandon. What's your name?" I asked, sticking my hand out.
"Jasper Hale, miss" I could've melted right then and there. I mean, he was so nice and handsome! Definitely a gentleman.
"It's nice to meet you, Jazz. What are you doing here?" I asked, tilting my head to the side curiously.
"The same thing you are. I'm doing research for an essay" He laughed.
"How did you know that?" I said, putting my hands on my hips.
"I don't think you're checking out a book about wolves and their mating habits for fun" Blushing, I clutched my book tighter. Stupid Alice, stupid!
"Um… So, what did Mrs. Carmack make you research anyway?" Because it's obviously her. It's always her.
"Guinea pigs" He admitted sheepishly. I laughed. "Well, it's not my fault our biology teacher's going mad!"
I quickly glanced at my clock. Oh, crap, Bella was gonna kill me!
"You have to go" Jasper said. I nodded reluctantly.
"Yeah, a friend of mine is waiting for me at her house. I'm gonna be so late!" I complained, thinking of the long walk to Bella's house.
"Well, I could give you a ride. If you need one, that is" He added, looking at his feet. He was so cute!
"Really? Oh my God, thank you!" I impulsively hugged him. My head barely reached his shoulders, and I was standing on tiptoes! Again! Embarrassed, I stepped back.
"Sorry about that" I whispered. Library, remember? Wish I had.
"Hey, don't worry about it. It's OK" He said, looking into my eyes. Swoon. "Let's go check these books out"
Jazz grabbed my book and put his hand on my shoulder as if to keep a hold on me. Five minutes later, we were in his car.
Time flew by. When we reached Bella's street, I didn't want to get out of the car. Ever.
"Thanks for the ride, Jasper. I really appreciate it" I said, opening the door of the car.
"It was nothing. See you tomorrow!" He said, smiling.
"See ya" I waved and watched him leave.
"Alice! I can't believe you don't know who Jasper Hale is!" Bella cried as I finished telling her everything that had happened.
"Care to enlighten me?" I asked sarcastically.
"He's one of the cutest, most popular guys in school! And his sister is…"
"… Rose Hale!" I finished. "Of course! I can't believe I didn't notice this earlier! I know her, she's really nice"
Bells shrugged and looked at the TV, where a creepy killer had finally caught up with the girl he was chasing and was about to cut her into a bazillion pieces.
"Aaaaaaah!" We both shrieked as the girl saw the man's face and ran out of her house, trying to find someone who could help her.
"Don't look back! Noo!" I yelled as the guy grabbed her leg and started dragging her towards the seashore.
"He's gonna drown her! Oh my God!" Bella hid her head in her hands. "I can't watch, Ally, you do it for me!"
I panicked and screamed as I watched the guy's hands encircle the girls neck…
"What is going on here?!" Bella's dad, Charlie Swan, burst into the room with his gun ready. I guess he thought we were being murdered or raped or something.
"Nothing, dad. We're just watching a movie" Bella said calmly.
"Oh. Well, I guess I'll just…" Charlie trailed off and left immediately, closing the door behind him.
Both of us sighed in relief.
"I thought he was going to shoot one of us!" I said, giggling. Bella just smiled and started picking up the popcorn that was on the floor.
"So, back to Jasper. Do you like him?" Bells asked seriously.
I hesitated. I barely knew the guy, and yet… He was smart- that much I was sure of- and he was super cute. Also, there was the possibility that he was interested.
"Yes" I whispered, looking at my hands. Call me crazy, but I had a feeling Jasper Hale and I were going places. And, as everyone at school knows, my feelings should not be ignored.
Yay!! New story!!!
God, I love these.
Anyways, review... or I'll... I'll... I'll tell on you!
