***I do not own 'Twilight'. I just like to mess around with the characters. ***

This chapter and my other story is dedicated to BloodAngel78. Thank you for being there for me and of course patient with my ass. You may be far away, but you're still always close. I'm back!


"What the hell is Jasper doing with Bella? I am so much hotter than her." The other voice coming from her direction was the other bitch Lauren. Jealousy was radiating off of them in buckets.

I moved closer to my girl hoping to shield her from the skanks that were staring at her. I placed a hand on her lower back and that made a big difference. I noticed the more I touched her, the calmer I felt and I didn't feel so emotional. Everything went quiet dull almost. I felt no one's emotions, but hers.

Chapter 7

I feel nothing, but her emotions.

I took my hand away from her lower back quickly.

What the fuck was that all about. How can I not feel anything? Something is wrong. I need to call Alice. As soon as that thought left my mind my phone buzzed.

I got it out of my pocket and of course it was from my sister.

Don't worry. Enjoy the day. Keep walking before Bella trips.

I didn't realize that I stopped walking and I quickly looked up and noticed that Bella was about to trip over the curb. As fast as I could humanly go I made it just in time. She was about to trip before I caught her arm.

"Watch it, darlin. Now that I have you I don't want to lose you so soon." I whispered in her ear.

She blushed and tried to cover her face with her hair.

"Thanks, Jasper. I'm always tripping over something. I'm a major klutz. I'm always getting hurt one way or another. I should be put in a plastic bubble."

"It's okay, darlin. That's what I'm here for. To catch you when you fall; and if you were in a plastic bubble I wouldn't be able to do this." I leaned in and placed a light kiss on her lips.

When I pulled back her eyes were closed and not breathing.

"Breathe, sugar." I whispered in her ear.

My girl slowly opened her eyes and looked straight at me and licked her lips. I wanted to lean into her again and kiss her but was so rudely interrupted by the cows that were about fifty feet away from us. I let go of my girl reluctantly.

As soon as I let her go I felt the jealousy hit me so hard I could have fallen to my knees.

"Did you see that? Jasper just kissed the new girl. What the fuck? Did she fuck him already?" It was the shrieking voice of Lauren Mallory.

"Do you know that she got Mike suspended? According to Mike she had been flirting with him all morning and when he decided to make a move on her she just flipped and made a big scene and that's when Jasper got involved.

Mike came over last night and told me the whole story. Of course I had to comfort him. If you know what I mean."

I swear every word that comes out of the mouth of Jessica Stanley is just pure trash. Whenever she talks it makes me want to go back to my human diet.

I will not kill the human.

I will not kill the human.

I will not kill the human.

I need to repeat that over and over. Or I swear to god; I will most definitely kill her.

"So sweetheart, where are we headed to first?"

I needed to focus on my girl. I placed my hand on her lower back leading her to the front of the school, but unfortunately we have to make our way past the two bitches. There was no way about it.

"Umm…. I have Health with Mrs. Johnstone and after her class I have American History with Mr. Vernon. Have you had any of those teachers before?"

We are getting close to them.

"I have Mrs. Johnstone after lunch. She's great. She's a bit flighty, but very entertaining. Especially, right now since this week is devoted to sex education. Carlisle is supposed to come to the school and give a lecture on sex on Friday. He comes every semester since we have moved here to do the lecture."

"Carlisle is coming here?" she stops in the middle of the hallway with a student almost running into her.

"What the hell? Watch it."

"I'm sorry. I didn't mean to." Bella blushed.

"C'mon sweetheart, we have to get you to class. I think it's a little too soon to take another trip to the hospital. I know Carlisle would love to see you again, but I would prefer you guys meet again under better circumstances and not an emergency visit.

But to answer your question, yes, Carlisle will be here on Friday."

We were less than five feet away from those girls. I kept my hand on Bella's lower back. With my hand on her I felt better. I wasn't picking up any ones emotions. This calmed me. I felt normal to only feel my own emotions and not every one else's.

"It would be great to see Carlisle again. I wanted to apologize to him for last night. I know he wasn't happy with me not pressing charges on Mike, but I just didn't want to start any more trouble.

I'm new here and by the looks that I keep getting from those girls over there; I don't think I will be prom queen. I swear I can feel their anger from here."

Bella gave a little shiver.

I knew she was talking about Lauren and Jessica. Those girls have been staring at us since we got here.

"Don't worry, baby. I'm here to protect you. If they bother you, I'll eat them." I smiled down at her and flashed a smile. I made sure to show all my teeth.

"Umm…. That's okay. I think I can take care of myself. Though I do appreciate the offer; I'll hold off on the cannibalism for right now." She winked at me.

Damn, my girl is brave. If I would have smiled to any normal human they would've either run away as quickly as they can or they would have fallen all over themselves. But not her, she kept on walking not missing a beat.

We were just about to pass the heifers when one of them spoke.

"Sorry to hear about your arm, Bella. I hope you getter better soon." Lauren called out to her as we passed. She had a fake smile plastered on her face.

Humans are friends, not food.

Humans are friends not food.

"Thanks" was the only response that came out of Bella's mouth as she continued to walk by.

"Hey Jasper, do you think I can talk to you for a bit?" Lauren called out to me.

Fuck, why the fuck does she want to talk to me?

"I'm in a bit of a hurry, Lauren. I wanted to walk Bella to class and the bell is about to ring. I'll talk to you later in class."

"That's the reason I wanted to talk to you about. It would only take a minute. I'm sure Bella can find her way to class." She looked pointedly in Bella's direction.

"I will talk to you later, Lauren. I'm.."

"It's okay Jasper. Go ahead and talk to her. I'll see you later." Bella said and rushed away quickly before I could stop her. I felt her sadness and longing coming from her as she walked away. I hated for Bella to feel that way.

What I hated even more was the fact that Lauren Mallory is the cause of all this. I felt her smugness and joy as she saw Bella leaving.

"What do you want?" I snapped at her.

She was a shocked by the tone of my voice, but she quickly snapped out of it.

"Jasper, I was wondering if you wanted to be my lab partner in Biology. We have a group project that we need to do and since you don't have a lab partner; I was wondering if you wanted to be mine." Lauren tried to sound sexy, but it sounded nasally and annoying.

She stepped closer to me and I took a step back.

"Was that the only thing you needed to talk to me about; me being your lab partner?" I gave her an annoyed look.

"Well I also wanted to save you from being, Bella's partner. According to a very reliable source I heard that she is a major tease and a bitch. And I also heard that…"

"Stop right there, Lauren." I breathed in and out trying to calm myself. I had to bite back a growl.


"Don't you dare finish that sentence? Or so help me god…" breathe in and out "You will never talk that way about my girl. She's mine. So I suggest that you and your reliable source." I looked over to Jessica." Keep your mouths shut or you will regret ever opening them in the first place.

I never want to hear you talk bad about my Bella again. Don't even look in her direction. If I hear any more of that filth coming out of your mouth I will …."

"Hey bro, what's going on?" I felt Emmett place a hand on my shoulder restraining me without making it obvious. "What are you doing with these dogs.. I mean girls?" Emmett's amusement and concern was radiating off of him.

I looked at him and I then noticed that we had acquired quite a crowd in the hallway that we were in. Lauren and Jessica were scared out of their minds. I felt their terror. It felt good knowing that I caused that. They fucking deserve it after talking about my mate the way they did.

"Not much Emmett, I was just telling Lauren and Jessica that I do not need a lab partner since, Bella has agreed to be mine." The monster in me wanted to get out and give them something that would most definitely scare the shit out of them.

"Okay, well now that that is done. We need to head to class. So we will see you later dogs… I mean whores. I'm sorry I meant to say girls. See you guys later or not. I rather hope for the not." There were a couple of people watching are little altercation that laughed at Emmett's 'mistake'. Hell I had to cover my hand with my mouth since I didn't want them to see the smile on my face.

I had to be the serious one.

"Girls." I nodded at them goodbye and took off with Emmett to our class.

"What the fuck, Jazz? Are you crazy? You were about to go all "major" on their asses. What happened anyway? What caused those two bimbos to be so bitchy?"

I told him everything. I left nothing out.

"What a bitch." Emmett said out loud. Bad idea.

"Is there something you would like to share with the class Mr. Cullen?" Mr. Belfy asked.

"No sir, sorry for the interruption; it won't happen again." If Emmett was still alive he would be a bright red. I felt his embarrassment.

Ten more minutes and I can meet up with my Bella. I'm hoping I can get there before she heads to her next class.


Finally, those were the longest ten minutes of my life.

"I'll see you at lunch Emmett." I said to him as I quickly turned the corner to get to my girls classroom.

I smelled her before I even saw her. Such a sweet smell I would love to find out how other parts of smell or maybe even taste. Damn, my perverted mind.

I saw her walking out of the classroom with Eric Yorkie. I didn't like it one bit. I was getting closer to her. She hadn't even looked up. I felt how uncomfortable she was and how sad. She should be happy.

"So Bella, what are you doing this weekend? A couple of us are headed to Port Angeles. Do a little shopping, lunch and maybe a movie. Would you be interested in coming with me… I mean us?" That little shit was asking my mate out on a date.

I was trying to make my way through the crowd of students to get to her. I didn't want that fucker close to her.

"I would love to." She is going to go out with the dick. I stopped and I felt my heart breaking. "But I can't. I'm going to La Push this weekend with my dad. They are having a bonfire at First Beach as a welcome home party for me. I haven't seen some of my res friends in a couple of years and it would be nice to catch up with them. Maybe next time, Eric."

Like hell if there is going to be a next time. If I had my way the only people that would be able to go out with her would be Carlisle and I. Even then the only places we would go would be our bedroom.

I hope.

"Hey baby, I'm glad I caught you before your next class." I snuck up to her.

Her face showed her shock and her emotions were happy and of course excited.

"Jasper, what are doing here?"

"I thought I would walk you to your next class. What kind of a gentleman would I be if I didn't do that for MY girl?" I emphasized the "My" as I looked at Eric.

"Ooookkkkay..Bbbbbeella, I wi…will ttttalk to you later. Bbbye Jjjjasper." He stuttered turned around and headed the opposite direction.

"Way to go, Jasper. You scared the guy half to death. Poor thing probably peed his pants."

He did, but she didn't need to know that.

"So Jasper, how did the little talk with Lauren go?" I felt her mischievousness.

"What have you heard?" I asked cautiously not sure if I wanted her to know what happened.

"I heard a lot of stuff. Small school, remember. The main one was that you told Lauren off. Is that true?" she was giddy.

She needed to control that or I'm going to be jumping up and down clapping my hands.


"I did tell her off. That is all I'm going to tell you."

"What did you say or why did you do it? Pleeeeaaase tell me."

"Maybe, I'll tell you later sweetheart, but right now we have to get to class. I can't have you be late." I lifted my hand and cupped her cheek.

She's beautiful and I can't believe she's ours.

The rest of the day luckily went great. No injuries and no deaths. That's a good day for me.

I told her about the rumor that Lauren and Jessica were spreading. She was pissed. I had to hold her down to make sure she didn't kick their asses.

Once we stepped into Biology I lead Bella to the lab table. Two minutes later a reluctant and scared shitless Lauren walked through the door. Her anxiety was sky high.

Bella looked up and sneered in her direction. My girl was pissed.

"It's okay, darlin'. She won't bother us anymore." I whispered into her ear.

Another shiver went down Bella's back. She held her pencil in one hand in a tight grip her fingers going paler from the lack of blood flow.

I grabbed her hand and took the pencil away from her. I still kept her hand in mine. I put our hands underneath the table. I didn't want Mr. Morris getting mad. He was a very bitter and divorced man. He hated any kind of PDA. It didn't matter what it was he stopped it.

"Alright class, I'm sure you know we have a new student with us. Her name is Isabella Swan." He pointed towards Bella. She blushed when all eyes turned to her. She removed her hand from mine and gave the class a little wave.

"Mr. Whitlock I hope you can update Ms. Swan in what we have done so she can catch up. Since she is seated at your lab table she will be your lab partner for the rest of the year. I hope I have made myself clear Mr. Whitlock?"

"Yes sir, perfectly. It would be my pleasure to help Ms. Swan." I put my hand on her thigh she jumped a little, but nothing to obvious.

"Humph" he grunted and turned around to start his lesson.

I reluctantly moved my hands and pretended to write notes. But the only note I was going to write was to my girl next to me. I quickly scribbled on the paper and handed it to her.

Ms. Swan would you care to accompany me to the hospital this evening, to visit Carlisle.

I saw the corner of her mouth lift up once she read the note and started writing back.

Her blush was absolutely beautiful as she answered the letter. I could see Lauren out of the corner of my eye looking at us. Her jealousy was extreme. I don't know what is going through that girl's head. If I haven't paid attention to her now, what makes her think that I ever will?

She quickly handed the note to me before Mr. Morris could see.

I would love to Mr. Whitlock. I It would love be great to see Carlisle again.

I leaned in a little closer than I already was and whispered. "After school we'll head over. Carlisle should have a break by then."

"Is there something you would like to share with the class Mr. Whitlock? I'm pretty sure whatever you have to share with Ms. Swan would help in our lesson."

"No sir. I was just going to tell Ms. Swan that she could borrow my notes so she can catch up. That's all Mr. Morris" I sent him a little trust so he could just drop it.

"Humph" I heard him mumble something that sounded like 'sure you did'. But who am I to talk back to a teacher.

It was my turn to jump when I felt Isabella's little hand in my cold one. She was about to pull away, but I quickly grabbed it and entwined our fingers. The feeling of her hands in mine sent a chill up my spine and by the smell of her arousal I have quite an effect on her.


Finally, two more classes and she will be all mine and Carlisle's. She released my hand so she could load her book bag. I missed the heat of her little hand right away. Once she was done I grabbed her bag and put it over my shoulder and went to grab for her hand. I was so close when I was sent with an intense anger and jealousy I had to hold on to the desk so I wouldn't fall.

It was coming from none other than Lauren.

"Jasper are you all right?" I felt my girl's anxiety as she went to help me.

As soon as she touched me it all just vanished. Nothing at all, everyone's emotions were completely blocked. The only thing I felt was my girl's anxiety.

"I'm fine darlin'. I'm just a little dizzy. Don't worry." I kept a hold of her hand as I straightened myself up.

"Are you sure Jasper? We should go to the nurse. You didn't eat at lunch. Maybe you need to eat something."

"I'm fine sweetheart. No need to worry. I just lost my balance. You're not the only one who's clumsy." I winked.

"C'mon two more classes to go and we can leave." I kept her hand in mine as I walked her to her next class. It was a relief not to feel all the whirlwind emotions coming from hormonal teenagers.

I dropped her off at Mr. Birdy's English class and headed to my next class. Throughout the period the only thing going through my mind were thoughts of my girl. I can't wait to have my mate soon. I wish Carlisle was able to spend more time with her. I get to spend the day with her in school and he doesn't. It hurts that he can't be here. But of course we have to keep up "appearances".

There are so many times that Carlisle and I are out in public and all I want to do is reach over and grab his hand or kiss him. But I can't. Because socially it is wrong and this is Forks, it is as conservative as they come. Carlisle holds a high position in the hospital and he needs to keep up appearances of the straight laced doctor.

One of these days things are going to change. I'm not sure when, but they will.


One more class and we are gone. I hurried through the hall to get to my girl's class and of course right next to her is another guy. This time it's Tyler Crowley. How much more obvious do I have to be. She's MINE.

"I'm sorry to hear what Mike did to you. He's a total douche bag. Just because his parents are one of the richest people in Forks he thinks he can rule the school. He got what he deserves. He deserves much more punishment then suspension if you ask me."

She didn't ask you, fucker. Back off.

"So Bella, I was wondering what you were doing this weekend. A couple of us are headed to first beach to have a bonfire and BBQ with the guys at the res and I was wondering if you wanted to come with."

Oh hell! He fucking asked her out. Damn this human speed.

"Thanks Tyler, but I'm already going to be out there this weekend. My friend Jacob and his dad are having a bit of a welcome home party for me. So I don't…" My girl was interrupted by the little bastard.

"Hey that's great. Maybe I will see you there and we can hang out."

Almost there.

"I don't think it will be a good idea.."

"Hey darlin', missed me." I leaned in and gave her a little kiss on the cheek. I know I'm being a little forward, but this fucker needs to know who she belongs to.

She blushed at the contact.

"Hey Jasper, I'm sure you know Tyler."

"Hey Tyler. C'mon darlin' let's get you to class. We can't be late for your next class." I grabbed her bag and her hand and I led her away from the damn hornball.

"I'll see you this weekend then, Bella." He told her as he made his way through the crowd, before she could answer him.

"Ugh! Stupid Tyler. What is going on here?" she mumbled to herself.

"So by the sound of it, it looks like you have a date this weekend." I tried not to sound annoyed, but I'm not sure I tried hard enough.

"It's not a date. I don't have a date with anybody." She quickly let go of my hand.

"What is going on here, Jasper? What are we? Are we dating? I honestly don't know what's going on between us. I'm not sure I like it."

I felt my heart sink a little.


AUTHOR'S NOTE: Sorry for the delay in my stories. For personal reasons I haven't had a chance to write or the will to write, but things are better. Or at least I hope so. I'm back and I'm trying to get myself back into writing again. I have a lot to vent and I'm going to use my writing to do it. So that's enough of that. I'm not going to say anymore.

Let me know if it sucks or it doesn't suck. This is not beta'd so don't give me too much hell for it.
