Hey guys! So a few of you requested that I post my prompts from FitWit that had to do with Twilight. Honestly, I began to do FitWit, but only with original writing. But because I love you guys so much, I decided to gather all the prompts and write a bunch of one shots with Twilight Characters. Here's prompt numero uno!
Word Prompt: Lucky Break
Characters: Alice & Jasper, Alice's POV
"Mom, chances like this only happen once in a lifetime! Do you even know how rare this opportunity is?"
"Alice, school comes first. You can't run off with some famous fashion designer with the grades that you have right now."
"I'm not smart." I sighed, pushing my plate away from me, "Fashion is the only thing that I'm good at."
"Now, sweetie. You know that's not true."
"Yes, it is. Why can't you just understand that no matter how hard I try, no matter how much I study, I will never be good at school work."
"Sketching articles of clothing is not a healthy career choice."
"Jasper's parents are fine with his art!" I shouted
Why couldn't anyone understand that I had a gift? I knew that this career was perfect for me, and that I would be successful.
"Alice, baby, you know that Jasper is a serious artist, and he went to art school. Drawing clothing isn't art."
"But, dad, you can take art classes for fashion, and that's what I'm trying to do! I have to start somewhere."
The doorbell rang and I let out a breath of relief.
"Jasper." I murmured
"Answer the door, but you'll finish dinner before you run off to your room with him."
I skipped to the front door and swung it open, revealing my golden-haired, blue-eyed love of my life. Jasper.
"Hey, Al." he whispered, kissing me lightly on the lips, "Damn, your eyes are red." He frowned
"Just a casual family dinner conversation."
"You're fighting with your parents over the internship again, aren't you?"
"No." I lied
"Yes you are." He laughed, closing the door behind him, and wrapping his arm around my waist, "Let's see what I can do about this, alright?"
"Okay." I smiled, knowing that if anyone could soften up my parents, it would be him
We walked into the kitchen, and Jasper pulled my chair out for me.
"Hello there, Jasper." My father grinned, shaking his hand, and offering him a seat
"Dear, you've gotten here just in time for some dessert." My mom smiled
Amazing, how the mood could lighten so quickly.
"Well, have you decided what your plans will be for the summer?" my father asked
"Yes, sir. My parents have given me the go ahead to take some preparation art classes at NYU. I had a few other offers, but I wanted to be closer to Alice."
"Well now, Alice, you didn't tell me that Jasper was going to be staying in New York this summer as well."
Was that the key all along? Letting my parents know that my boyfriend would also be in New York all summer.
"I didn't think it was worth mentioning." I mumbled
"Of course it's worth mentioning! That changes everything."
"It does?" Jasper and I asked simultaneously
"You two could room together somewhere." My dad pointed out
Now my parents wanted us to stay together? For ten weeks? Unsupervised?
"With supervision of course." My mother added
"I'll be staying at my cousins house. I'm sure she'd be happy to house Alice as well."
"The two of you just told me that fashion wasn't art. That I couldn't go, because it wasn't a sufficient career."
"Sweetie, we'd be idiots to tell you something like that. The real problem was that we didn't want our baby running off for the summer, all alone in the city. Anyone can tell that you've got some serious talent. You've got sketches and charcoal all over your room. And you work two part time jobs just to buy sketch paper, fabric, and sewing supplies. You are truly dedicated, and your father and I truly appreciate that, and are proud of you."
"Of course, I do agree with your mom. I would love it if your grades went up a little bit this year. It is your senior year, and it's about the last time to up your grades a little bit. I'm not asking for straight A's, Alice. But could you try? If you can give your mother and I a solid promise to attempt to raise your grades, we'll let you go to New York with Jasper, and intern with that designer."
"Really?" I squealed
"Really." My father laughed
"Ohmygosh! Thank you so much! I love you both immensely." I continued squealing, hopping up to hug each of my parents and then Jasper
He kissed my forehead.
"I told you so." He breathed, pushing a strand of hair behind my ear
"So the two of you are really okay with my career choice?"
"Just please have a fallback plan."
"And I can help Alice out with studying." Jasper promised
We finished up dinner, and quickly ate dessert. Luckily, my mother declined my offer to do the dishes and let Jasper and go up to my room.
Door open, of course.
"I can't believe we get to spend the summer together." He grinned, kissing me again
"It's still not enough time." I pouted
"I know, and that's why I want to give you something."
He got down on his knee and fumbled around in his pocket.
"Are you freaking crazy? We're seventeen years old? My parents may love you now, but they're going to kill you, Jazz!"
"Would you just let me finish?" he laughed
"Only because you're so adorable."
"Alice Brandon, I have loved you from the moment I met you. Cheesey, but true. And I want to spend the rest of my life with you. But to prevent being murdered by your parents, I settled with a simple promise. With this ring, I promise to be there for you forever. To wait for you, with the hope that in return, you will wait for me, and spend forever with me." He smiled, sliding a thing gold ring onto my finger
"Of course I'll wait for you." I smiled through my tears
"Thank god." He grinned
So, how I said that my internship was a once in a lifetime opportunity? Well, Jasper was someone who came along once in a lifetime. Jasper was my lucky break, and somehow, I was his too.
Please review and let me know which couples you'd like me to include (:
