Chapter 1: Meeting Jasper
Things are going great with Edward and me, my boyfriend. We've been together for 7 months now, and I couldn't be happier.
Today I am going to his house to meet his family, well, one family member; Jasper. Jasper is Alice, my best friend and Edward's adopted sisters, husband. I have met Alice. I have also met his parents for all purposes, Carlisle and Esme, and his brother Emmett, and sister Rosalie.
I'm nervous about meeting Jasper, though. He is new to the Cullen diet; drinking animal blood.
Oh did I mention, my boyfriend and his family are vampires?
I was finishing up eating my dinner when I heard a knock on the door. My father, Charlie, got up and answered it, while my mother, Renee, just looked at me with a happy look on her face. She likes Edward, and thinks he is charming and outrageously handsome, which he is. But Charlie doesn't seem approve of him, and thinks he's up to something. What that something might be, I have no clue.
"Hello, how are you and your family tonight?" Edward asked while my father invited him into the kitchen. Edward was so handsome it hurt to look at him.
How did I get so lucky with you? I thought to him. You see, he can read minds. And Alice sees the future. But Edward can only read my mind when I allow him to, which isn't often.
He looked at me and winked and I know for a fact I was bright red, so I got up and put my dish in the sink and told my parents I would be back later that night, for I was going to Edward's house.
On the way there, in his shiny silver Volvo, he pulled the car over and looked at me with so much love on his face that it sort of hurt.
"Honey, Jasper can feel your emotions, so don't be afraid, or it will make him feel bad." I nodded.
"He won't hurt me, right?" I asked cautiously.
"Of course he won't! Do you think I would ever let that happen?" And I shook my head.
"I think you and he will get along wonderfully, actually, I know you will. Alice has seen it," he said reassuringly.
"Okay, well as long as you say so," I said, still sort of unsure.
We pulled up to his house, which is HUGE, and he came around, with his crazy vampire speed and opened my door for me. I got out and he walked me to the door, assuring me once again that I was safe.
As we walked into his beautiful home, I really saw how big it was. The living room was decorated simply, but elegantly and it was very bright and open. I stared in awe and Edward just looked at me lovingly. He walked over to me and helped me out of my coat and hung it up on the coat rack.
Carlisle and Esme walked in the room, then. Esme hugged me tightly and said, "Honey, I have missed you." I smiled at her and kissed her cheek, "I have missed you, too." And I really did, she was like my second mother. Carlisle gave me a fatherly hug and kissed the top of my head. "You look lovely, Bella." I laughed at his statement, but thank him.
I was dressed in a baby blue and white dress that cut off at the knee and white ballet slippers with light blue bows on them. My hair was in loose curls, hanging down my back, and I had light make up on. Alice and Rosalie would be very proud of me.
Speaking of the devils, they both walked in then, and ran to me, wrapping me in a hug, knocking the three of us down.
I laughed lightly, "It's good to see you guys, too!" I added after getting up.
"Oh Bella you look so beautiful!" They both said together.
"Thanks, I tried." I said honestly.
Emmett, and Jasper, I presumed, walked into the room. I walked up to Emmett and wrapped my arms around him, and he picked me up, giving me a classic 'Emmett bear hug' before setting me gently back on the ground, kissing my cheek.
"Bells, you need to go to the gym, you gained weight," he joked. "Oh suck it, Em, you're just jealous, because I'm hotter than you!" I stuck out my tongue at him. Everyone just laughed.
"Emmy, you just got burned by a human!" Rose added. I just ignored the rest as I walked over to Jasper.
He's gorgeous. Alice is so lucky.I thought to myself, thankful Edward can't hear my thoughts right now.
I gotta knock this off, he feels my emotions.
"Hi Jasper," I said and smile at him gently. "Howdy, ma'am." Alice interjected then, "Jazz, you can call her Bella, you know." I nodded my head and kept smiling.
"Alright then, Bella." He smiled widely at me, and at that moment I knew I wasn't in any trouble, and my past fears disappeared. He walked toward me carefully and gave me a gentle hug and I could tell he wasn't breathing.
"Huh, Ali, that wasn't that bad, actually. Welcome to the family, Bella." I smiled and thanked him and walked back over to Edward.
"Are you hungry?" Edward breathed in my ear, sending chills down my spine.
"A little, sure, I'll just go make me a sandwich or something," I replied.
"No, Bella! You should let Jasper make you his amazing Texas styled chili!" Alice called out.
"No, that's okay, he doesn't have to." I said.
Jasper walked up to me and said, "Oh darlin', it would be my pleasure to cook for you." He smiled brightly. "I'll even make it vegetarian styled for 'ya." If possible, his smile got bigger.
"Well, alright, as long as you don't mind. And Alice, how do you know if it tastes good, or not, you don't like human food, remember? I do not doubt your cooking though Jasper. Would you like help?" I laughed.
He seems very easy to talk to.
"Sure, darlin', come on." He said.
Jasper and I walked into the kitchen with Alice and Edward behind us.
"Yippee! My best friend and my husband get along so well!" Alice said while bouncing.
"Damn, Pixie, take a chill pill." Emmett called from the living room, and I couldn't help but laugh. But I wasn't the only one laughing, Jasper and Edward laughed, too.
"So what do we do first?" I asked Jasper and he laughed.
"Well first, we chop the onions, garlic, peppers, and boil some water. So, I'll start on the vegetables and you get the water boiling. Sprint some salt in the water to help in boil faster, too." He said all smart like.
He's so smart and handsome.*internal sigh*
I got a pot out of the cupboard and put water in it and added a little bit of salt and set in on the burner.
The water boiled and Jasper dropped the vegetables in the pot.
A half hour later, and a few more steps to the chili, it was finished, and before I knew it I was at the table with a bowl of it.
Jasper was a real gentleman, cooking at human speed so I can help.
I got a spoonful of the chili and put it in my mouth. Once it cooled off a bit I moaned loudly and finished the bite.
"Oh my God, Jasper! This is so delicious!" I spooned another mouthful into my mouth, not caring it burned my tongue. It's too good, to care.
"Well, thank 'ya, darlin'. I couldn't have done it with out you." He smiled.
After I was done eating my wonderful meal, I gave Jasper a hug and thanked him again, and followed Edward back into the living room.
"Would you like to watch a movie, love?" Edward asked me. "Sure. How about we watch 'Glory'?" I said happily. I loved Civil War movies; my Grandfather was a General in the Civil War back then.
"Sure, of course. I'm pretty sure Jasper going to watch it with us. He was a Major in the Civil War, you know."
Jasper decided to walk in at that moment. "Yes, I was," he said proudly.
"Really? My Grandpa was a General in the war!"
Jasper is so interesting. I need to find out more.
So, Edward, Jasper, Alice, and I all watch Glory, while Jasper and I chit chatted a bit about the war, and just history in general. I learned that Jasper actually majored in History in college. I was so intrigued by him that time just flew by. Before I knew it, it was time to home.
"Bella, it's already 10. I should probably get you home so Charlie doesn't think I'm a bad influence on you." Edward said.
"Awh, alright. Bye Jasper, it was really great finally meeting you."
"You as well, darlin'." He smiled a beautiful smile.
"Em, Rose! Come give me hugs, I'm leaving!" I called out as I was giving Alice a hug goodbye.
They both were downstairs before I could take a breath. Stupid vampire speed.
Rosalie hugged me first, kissing my cheek, telling me she would see me tomorrow. Then Emmett hugged me telling me another fat joke, so I punched him in the arm, only to hurt myself. Stupid indestructible vampires. I grunted.
Then I gave Jasper another hug, and I was out the door and into Edward's Volvo. I loved his Volvo. He drove me home, and it took only a minute or two. Edward and his family LOVE to speed. If I was driving it would take me 15 minutes to get to their house in the middle of the forest.
We pulled up to my small house and Edward and I both got out as he walked me to the front door. He pulled me into a hug and kissed me lovingly and I put as much passion into the kiss that I could muster up and soon I was light headed.
"I'll be up in your room in a bit. I love you, Bella." He said, whispering in my ear.
"And I love you, Edward." I sad back giving him one last kiss and he was back in his car.
As I walked into the house, all the lights were off, so I decided to grab a bottle of water and head upstairs to my room. While heading up there, my parents walked out of their room, yawning and giving me a quick hug and a 'Goodnight' and returned back to their room to go back to sleep.
I entered my room, changed into my pajamas, and got my toiletries, heading into the small bathroom across the hall from my room. I quickly brushed my hair and teeth and threw my hair in a messy pony tail and went back to my room.
Edward was already sitting on my bed, waiting for me, so I crawled to him slowly, and he just smirked. We laid down, and cuddled. We talked for a little while before I kissed him sweetly, and we whispered a quiet 'I love you' to each other. I cuddled into him more and fell asleep quickly.
