Always

I could feel him watching me from across the room, his eyes burning holes into my back. I know I probably shouldn't have come here, but when Demetri asked me to go out with him for a night of dancing, I figured, 'what the hell,' and took him up on his offer. I hadn't gone out in a long time and he convinced me that joining the living would be a good idea. It was only a few seconds later that I realized he would probably be there too. Why wouldn't he? We used to come here all the time when we were together.

When we first walked into the club, I did a quick scan and couldn't see him anywhere. Breathing a sigh of relief, I joined Demetri at the bar. After a couple of drinks, Demetri dragged me onto the dance floor and held me close. He ran his nose across my jaw and nipped at my earlobe. My eyes automatically closed as I enjoyed the feeling of his warmth, something I hadn't felt in far too long. Immediately my mind went to all the times he held me close on this very same dance floor. I sighed, which must have encouraged Demetri because he proceeded to press his lips against mine.

I wanted to enjoy the moment.

I wanted to enjoy him.

But I couldn't.

I couldn't enjoy the kiss because all I saw behind my eyelids were sparkling green eyes staring back at me. I reached up to run my fingers through Demetri's hair, but it felt wrong. His hair was the wrong length; much too short.

That's when I felt it and I knew. I knew he was there.

I slowly opened my eyes and felt my skin break out in goose bumps. My breathing sped up and I felt as though I needed to sit before my legs gave out on me. Demetri wrapped his arm around my waist to steady me.

"Jasper? Are you okay?"

I shook my head and looked into his brown eyes. They were the wrong color.

"Yeah, I think so. Would you mind getting me a bottle of water, please?"

"Sure. I'll be right back."

I watched as he disappeared into the crowd and placed my hands on my knees, trying to regulate my breathing. Just as I stood up, he whispered in my ear.

"I had to make sure you were alright. You scared me."

A shiver ran through my body as his smooth-as-molasses voice echoed in my ears. Slowly turning around, I ran my eyes up his long, lean body, over his delicious lips, straight nose and those gorgeous green eyes I loved so much.

"I-I'm alright, Edward; nothing to be worried about."

"Are you sure?"

His eyes held such concern that I felt compelled to comfort him. It was mistake to look into those sage eyes of his because now I was hooked. I always used to joke with him that his eyes were hypnotic and he could probably get me to do just about anything by staring at me…..and he did too.

"Yes."

"Okay. Well, it was good seeing you again, Jasper."

He began to walk away and my mind screamed at me to stop him. My arm shot out and I grabbed hold of his bicep. He immediately stopped and looked at me confused. I tried to speak, but words refused to come out. I just stared deeply into his eyes and silently pleaded with him.

Please still love me. Don't walk away…again.

He turned and stood in front of me, pulling his bottom lip between his teeth. I felt his hands lightly wrap around the back of my neck, pulling me close, our foreheads touching.

"Jasper," he whispered.

"Edward, I've been a wreck without you."

He nodded his head in agreement.

"I know, Jas. I've been a complete fuck up without you by my side. I-I can't… Wait, what about that guy you're with?"

His eyes seemed to be alight with a mixture of anger, jealousy and sadness.

"Edward, he's just a friend. He's interested in me, but I've turned down all of his invitations to hang out until tonight."

"What made you change your mind?"

I shrugged my shoulders. "I don't know. I guess I was just tired of hurting. I wanted you, but I figured that ship had sailed."

Edward shook his head.

"Jasper, you'll always have my heart, regardless if we're together or not."

He grabbed my hand and placed it on his chest.

"You will always be here."

"You know, when Demetri kissed me all I could think about was you. Everything just felt wrong."

Nodding his head once again, he exhaled and I drew his breath into my lungs.

"I never stopped loving you, Jas."

"I still love you too," I said.

And at that moment Edward's smile outshined the sun. He pulled me close and gently pressed his lips to mine and everything fell into place. This was right; being in Edward's arms was where I should always be.

As Edward deepened the kiss and I closed my eyes, I didn't have to worry about seeing someone else because my match, my soul mate, was standing right in front of me worshipping me with his delectable lips.

There was only one thought that entered my mind before my emotions overwhelmed me.

Perfection.


Many of you have asked why Jasper and Edward broke up in this o/s...well, the answer to that is 'I don't know'. LOL I never had a reason in mind, I just knew they were apart and unhappy and would eventually reconnect. Their break up is a complete mystery, so let your imagination run wild! *giggle*
