Pairing: Jasper x Bella
Summary: One thing I was absolutely sure of... Jasper... was my monster. Bella suddenly notices that her dreams no longer are of the bronze haired vampire she loves but instead of a honey blonde vampire with an uncanny lust for her blood. What is the cause?

NOTE: THERE WILL BE OOC!!!!!!!!! (Like I gave Bella a little more backbone)
I could feel cold hands pressed flush against my skin. It was a strange feeling that sent shudders down to my very bones. I looked into his warm honey eyes and felt as if I were floating to the gentle rocking of the sea.
He stroked a hand through my hair while the other gripped my waist. It was a gentle yet firm embrace. I opened my mouth to speak but he silenced me with a forced kiss. Soon I could no longer breathe.
I felt a heat boil within me and soon I found myself bare to his eyes. He looked upon my naked flesh as if it were some priceless relic that was worth more than anything in the world.
He smirked and flashed his teeth at me. There was a small pain then nothing. I felt pain elsewhere, a fiery touch that turned me into a blaze. I screamed but it wasn't in fear. It was in pleasure.
I woke up with a start, sweat on my brow and palms. I looked out the window; the sun had not even risen yet. There was a light mist that blocked out the view of the tree. I scrambled out of bed and went to it looking out. I saw nothing.
I sighed deeply then turned to slip back into my bed. I came in contact with something hard. I looked up to see Edward.
I fell backward and he caught me.
"What happened to "Holy crow!" I thought you weren't the type to swear."
"Edward, don't scare me like that!" He chuckled and lifted me. He placed me on the bed and covered me with the blankets.
"You forget love that I am a killer. I scare people."
"Edward you're not a killer."
"But I am; the sooner you see that the sooner you'll get that this is for the best."
"What's for the best?" I looked at him questionably but he shook his head.
"I'll tell you later."
"Are you sure?"
"Of course." I smiled and pulled him onto the bed and hugged him.
"I love you."
There was a small pause.
"I love you too."
I complained to Alice about throwing me a birthday party. I really didn't want one but she insisted. My birthday fell on a Saturday so I really had no way of running from her. It was Monday.
"Bella you won't believe what I have planned. It's simple since I know you'll throw a fit so don't worry I'm not going to throw something that you can see from space or something you can see from a mile away. It's going to be small but it's going to be a PARTY which means you have to accept the gifts! No butts!"
"I know Alice!" I looked at the little pixie that was attached to my arm. She was sometimes way too much to handle. How could Jasper?
I turned to see Alice let go of my arm and skip over to the lunch table where my new family sat. I let my eyes settle over Jasper for a brief moment and I knew that it was a mistake. My dream came back to haunt me.
I felt lust wash over me and consume me. I almost ran over to the table and crashed into everyone but instead I quickly sat down.
"You alright little sis, you know you're looking a bit pale?"
"I'm fine Emmett just a tad tired since I woke up earlier than I would have liked for a Monday school morning." He laughed and I rolled my eyes with Rosalie.
We all laughed at that.
I looked to Jasper again who was looking at me with a smirk on his face. He quickly looked away, tearing away his gaze at vampire speed.
I felt heat rise to my cheeks and warmth pool in my stomach. The feeling was becoming a common thing.
I looked up at Edward who was looking at Jasper. Their lips were moving too fast for me to catch what they were saying. I watched some emoting change Edward's face but he masked it with a blur. He looked down at me and I looked into his golden eyes.
"Let's get to class."
The ride to Edward's house was quiet. For me this had become a normal routine. I went from home to school, then from there to Edward's house, and then afterward I went to home again. It was something I had become so used to so when I found Edward had brought me home and not to his house I was surprised to say the least.
"Alice is starting the decorating. She's taking great care to use the whole week to prepare. She doesn't want anyone to spoil the surprise." He smiled gently and looked almost melancholic.
We went up to my room where we talked. I felt his gaze on me shift up and down as if I were some specimen to be examined.
"Bella I can't, this is so hard, being like this, always trying to be careful. Sometimes I wonder if I had sinned so very badly in my past life to be in such a mess. I love you, more than any man could ever comprehend and yet I can do nothing with you without having to kill you to do so.
"Edward you can still kiss me." He shook his head.
"I can kill you."
"Edward stop being so pessimistic. Nothing is going to happen. Do you see me worried? You can take as long as you like."
I smiled at him and he smiled back.
"Come on, I have math homework and I have no clue how I'm going to figure out what to do since I slept though half the class.
I was drifting again. The colours were this messy mix of bronze and golden honey. I felt the pain again but it hurt less this time. I looked through the mess and called out but now sound came from my lungs. I felt coldness around my wrists.
"You don't comprehend…"
"I can kill you…"
"I love you…"
The words echoed around me and I felt a weight, a heavy weight press down upon my chest and arms. It was invisible.
I saw honey and red.
Well here is the new and improved version of Stripped; Chapter One! The next chapter I will be working on tomorrow. Sadly we have the evil keyloggers at school so there are certain pieces of material that I can't write until later however there is a way around that. They are only checked 3 days a week so that limits me to 2 days and 3 nights since I no longer type on weekends. This does not apply to vacation time. I rarely type during my vacation so be prepared for slow updates. The next update will be here within the week though so be prepared for it!
