I was lying in my bed crying when I heard my window open. I didn't look up; I didn't want to see if it was Edward. He left me, his excuse that he wasn't right for me. How can he think that? He was perfect for me, he was my other half.
"Bella?" That voice was most definitely not Edward's. It had that southern accent that soothed me and made me look up.
"Jasper? What are you doing here?"
"I came to see if you were all right" He sat down in my rocking chair across the room. It made me wonder if the reason he was sitting so far away was because of the scent of my blood. He must have picked up on my confusion because he spoke then answering my thoughts.
"I'm sitting over here because I don't want you to feel uncomfortable or anything. Seeing as how our track record isn't exactly the best, I figured I'd sit over here so I wouldn't cause any discomfort."
His voice made my stomach flip, his accent had me mesmerized. I sat up and rested my back against the wall as I looked at him.
"You can sit down next to me if you'd like Jasper, I don't mind. As for our track record? Think nothing of it, it was an accident. It could have happened to anyone, plus I'm rather clumsy."
He looked down for a moment as if he were thinking it over. He was truly gorgeous, I never really noticed until now and I don't know why. With his dusty brown blonde hair, that chiseled face, deep molten bronze eyes, ski sloped nose, that strong jaw line, broad shoulders covered in a rather tight shirt that made me smile, strong looking arms, slim waist leading down to tight jean clad, long, slim legs. His shirt had a picture of Texas on it which read, Everything's bigger in Texas.
He sighed as he got up and walked over to me. He hesitated in front of me, looking at me with concern and uncertainty in his eyes. I extended my hand to him; he glanced at it and put his own hand in mine. Being human, I'm not very strong but he understood what I wanted when I pulled him down onto the bed to sit next to me.
"Are you okay Jasper?" I asked him timidly. I must admit, it was slightly awkward having him sitting here.
"Yes, I'm fine. I'm just thinking I guess. How are you Bella? That's the real question" He looked at me then, searching my face for some clue as to how I was feeling other than the emotions he was reading from me.
"I-I'm not doing so great I guess. It just hurts. I always had this doubt in my mind that I wasn't good enough for Edward. I always felt like I was given an angel or something great that I couldn't hold on too. I couldn't measure up and I knew it." I looked away with tears streaming down my cheeks.
"Bella, don't cry" He gently wiped away my tears with his thumb. "In all honestly, you were too good for Edward. He didn't deserve you. You don't see it, but everyone else does. You're this beautiful creature, you're smart, funny, gorgeous, mysterious, fun to be around, and you brighten everyone's day. Edward was a fool for leaving you. He didn't see what a great thing he had and he won't ever have another chance at something so amazing like you."
He put his hand under my chin, forcing me too look at him then. When I looked into his eyes, they burned a molten gold and I could see that he truly meant what he said. I felt loved in that instant and it made me blush. He just chuckled at my blush, I'm sure he couldn't see it in the dark room but I know he could feel my heart speed up and feel the blood rushing up to color my cheeks.
"Jasper, thank you."
"Anything for you darlin'. Do you need anything? I should probably get going. You have school in the morning and you need to sleep."
I looked away shyly. "Uhm, Jasper? Would you mind staying and holding me? Edward used to do that for me and seeing as how you're an empath I thought you may be able to calm me down so I can actually sleep tonight."
"Of course darlin'. Anything you need, just ask and I'll try my hardest to grant it."
I shifted and got under the covers and laid my head down on the pillow. Jasper also moved and lay down behind me. I felt him slowly move his arm to put it around my waist. It was a comfortable feeling having his arm encircling me.
"Good night my sweet Bella"
"Good night Jasper" I instantly felt calm and started to feel sleepy. I knew Jasper was sending me calming waves. My last thought before I finally fell asleep was that I prayed I wouldn't say anything embarrassing while I slept.
