This is my 2nd story so stick with me I'm still improving my writing skills! I have rated this story M in case of future lemons. Updates may be far apart since I have no plot set for the story only the idea. Some of the first few lines you will notice from the book New Moon are twisted in with my own words. Inspiration for this story came from The Fray Look after You. Great song! Go check it out. :D Any and All things you recognize belong to Ms. Meyer! Unbeta'd
I took the little package, rolling my eyes at Edward while I stuck my finger under the edge of the paper and jerked it under the tape.
"Shoot," I muttered when the paper sliced my finger; I pulled it out to examine the damage. A single drop of blood oozed from the tiny cut.
It all happened very quickly then.
"No!" Edward roared.
He threw himself at me, flinging me back across the table. It fell, as I did, scattering the cake and presents, the flowers and the plates. I landed in the mess of shattered crystal.
Glancing at Alice she had a small smile on her face like everything was right in the world.
Jasper slammed into Edward, and the sound was the crash of boulders in a rock slide.
There was another noise, a grisly snarling that seemed to be coming from deep in Jaspers chest. Suddenly there was a forced sense of fear, desperation, and pain shoved into my body. I knew Jasper was projecting and that I wasn't really feeling these things but I screamed none the less.
Edward faltered for just a moment. Long enough that I felt Jaspers teeth sink into my neck and pull a long gulp of blood out of my body before he suddenly stiffened and released me quickly sealing the bite before swiveling around and growling the most fearsome growl I have ever heard in my life toward Edward who was coming at him while crouching almost protectively over me.
As Jasper bit me it was if a lasso had been tied around my heart squeezing it almost painfully. This didn't happen when James bit me. Is Japers venom different? I'm slammed with an automatic attraction and slight possessiveness over him. Attraction? I love Edward! What the fuck is wrong with me?
I finally notice Edward had stopped his attack on Jasper and is staring at me with a heartbroken expression. He glances at Jasper then back to me before turning and running out of the house.
I had blood running down my arm from a rather large gash from landing in the shattered crystal. Emmett and Rosalie had run out of the house after Edward, obviously as confused as I was. Alice was standing there not breathing looking between Jasper and myself with a small content smile.
"I'm sorry Bella. I had to fix my mistake. I'll go talk to him. Make him understand" She whispered just loud enough for me to hear her before dashing out after Edward I assume.
Esme looks at me with a look of worry before softly whispering sorry and following the others out of house. Jasper is still crouched over me growling softly. Carlisle is staring at us wide eyed and a bit confused before putting his hands up and lowering his head in a submissive gesture.
"Jasper, son, she needs to be taken care of. I will not harm her or take her away from you. I promise son" he says almost too fast for my ears.
Jasper slowly gets up from his protective stance above me. Glancing back at me I see his eyes are still a dark ebony color. Looking into those eyes I seem to get lost, I feel as if I am drowning. My only lifeline is Jasper. The lasso around my heart constricting painfully as he takes a few steps away from me allowing Carlisle to come inspect my wounds.
"These will need a few stitches would you like to go to the hospital or have me do it here" Carlisle asks me while gently helping me up.
"Here is fine. I wouldn't want to worry Charlie" I say in an almost robotic voice. I can't seem to look away from Jasper.
"Jasper perhaps you should go hunt son. Talk to Edward maybe" Carlisle suggests as he begins stitching up my arm.
Jasper seems to be struggling with the decision on whether to go or stay. He eventually nods curtly before quickly running out of the house. My heart constricts so painfully it makes me suck in a deep breath. Carlisle gently shushes me glancing at the door Jasper had just retreated from.
"I assume you are very confused right now Bella. You can talk to me if you would like to" he says while finishing up the stitches on my arm.
"No, yes, ugh I don't know what the hell just happened. And why am I in so much pain. And not my arm!" I sigh out suddenly very wore out.
"Has Edward told you anything about True mates Bella" Carlisle asks while pouring a bit of bleach into the bowl with the clothes he used to wipe me before lighting it on fire.
"No, nothing really. He told me you and Esme are mates just like Alice and Jasper and Rosalie and Emmett are. I assumed he and I are" I reply to back rubbing my chest as the pain intensifies.
"Yes Esme and I are true mates. Emmett and Rosalie are not. They are just companions until they cross paths with their true mates. We all assumed Jasper and Alice were true mates like Esme and I. Apparently we were all wrong" he said to me while giving me a pointed look.
What the look was about I had no idea and not enough time to ponder it as the pain in my heart was reaching a level that I thought I was having a heart attack. Doubling over clutching my chest with my unstitched arm I start to hyperventilate. As quickly as it started it stopped and Jasper had me in his arms. Glaring at Carlisle while purring and softly stroking my hair.
I clung to him as if my life depended on it. Calming instantly I realize how safe and protected I feel with Jasper near me. What about Edward? You LOVE Edward! My mind is screaming one thing but the lasso around my heart and my feelings are saying something totally different. Are these my own emotions though or is Jasper manipulating me?
Peeling my face out of Jaspers chest and looking at his face I notice he is looking at me with such love and adoration it nearly knocks the breath out of me. What has happened?
So what do you think of this idea? Good? Should I abort it? I'm a bit tipsy from drinking a tad to much tonight so it may be horrible and littered with errors if so forgive me! Review and let me know!
