Chapter 1- Part 1-Meeting Again

Bella POV

It has been 4 years since the Cullens walked out of my life. When they left I thought I was going to die. Edward said he didn't love me anymore and no one said goodbye to me. Not Alice my best friend or Emmett who was like a big brother. I couldn't even tell Jasper that I didn't blame him or tell Carlisle and Esme that I loved them like my second parents. I fell apart for 4 months. By the end of the 4th month Charlie and Renee were trying to figure out how to help me, I knew I had to pull my life back together for Charlie and Renee. They didn't need to see me like the way I was. I finished high school and got my diploma. I couldn't work at Newton's anymore without reminders of the Cullens going 'hiking'. Plus Mike wouldn't get a clue to realize I didn't like him. So I got a job tending bar in Seattle. I had an apartment here and went to see Charlie as much as I could. I knew what I wanted to do with my life but that option left when the Cullens did. Charlie wasn't too happy about me working in a bar but understood that Newton's held too many memories and it was the only place hiring at the time. In the 4 years, I have grown and filled out, my hair was longer and I could walk across a flat surface without tripping even in heels.

It was late September on a Friday night the bar was always crowded on the weekends. I had my back turned fixing a drink for one of the regulars Paul (he was the only one who knew me from Forks. He lived in La Push 15 mins outside of Forks. But he never said anything to the others in La Push about where I was. Everybody just thought I left, but Paul and my dad knew better), when he walked in .I didn't see him at first, I was just finished the rum and coke for Paul when I heard a voice I thought I never hear again. It was golden and dripping with honey, I noticed his Texas accent was stronger now.

"Bella, is that you?" he drawled.

I turned around surprised; there he was looking like a cowboy god. He had on a pair of jeans that made his ass look good and black cowboy boots. He was wearing a black button-up shirt that showed off his abs. His hair was the same beautiful golden, honey blonde and his eyes were a beautiful gold. I could get lost in his eyes.

"Jasper Hale, how the hell are you?"

"I'm good Bella, buts its Whitlock now not Hale"

Oh how I loved that Texas twang, I was getting wet just thinking about hearing it again.

"What's with the name change and what are you doing here?"

"Well it's a long story about the name change Bella. As for what I'm doing here well that's also a long story."

"Well I want to catch up with you and know what is going on with you. Can we talk after I get off work?"

"Sure, if that's what you want. When do you get off work? I also want to hear what you have been up to since we left."

God I can feel my body tingle every time he talks.

"I get off work in half an hour and then we will talk."

"Alright Bella, I'll sit here and wait for you, if that's alright?"

"Sure Jasper that will be great."

So Jasper sat at the bar and made small talk with me. After a few minutes Paul called me over and told me he was leaving. I gave him a hug and told him I see him soon. After my shift was over I told Jasper to go around back to the employees door and wait for me, I told him I would only be 15 mins. He agreed and I finished up and went back to get my stuff. I got outside and there he was looking like a cowboy god leaning up against the wall.

"So where do you want to go and talk?" he drawled

"Well I have an apartment not to far from here, of you want we could go there and talk. This way you don't have to pretend to be human." I said the last part quietly.

"Where is your truck Bella?"

"It's right around here"

So we walked to my truck, he came around to my side and opened my door. I got in and before I knew it he was sitting beside me. I started the truck and we made our way to my apt. I was glade that I didn't live far, because I really wanted to talk more than just small talk with Jasper.
