Chapter 7 Finding Each Other Again
Decades had past, and Jasper had faced the fact that he was never going to see Alice ever again. He was now living in Philadelphia, trying to move on with his life. Or maybe passing through was more like it. He never stayed in one place for long.
It was a stormy day, so Jasper had decided to go into a little diner that he liked sitting in. He was very thankful that the waitress had never asked too many questions as to why he never ordered anything. And there she was, sitting on a high stool. He cleared his throat, and Alice turned to him with a bright smile on her face. She was even more beautiful than he imagined in her vampire form.
"You've kept me waiting long enough," Alice said as Jasper approached her at human speed, although he desperately wanted to get to her faster.
Jasper smiled, realizing how much that was true.
"I'm sorry, ma'am," he said with a bow.
Alice gracefully jumped off the stool and extended her hand, which Jasper took in his. They were the same temperature now. With that, they walked out of the diner hand in hand.
Jasper and Alice were in a hotel room, figuring out where to go next. Jasper found it comforting to have someone with him. After getting Alice back in his life, he realized just lonely he had been without her after all of this time.
"We could try Alaska," Jasper said, leaning over the bed and running his hand through her now chopped off dark hair.
When Alice did not answer, Jasper turned to find her staring out into space. He then realized this was the first time he had seen Alice having a vision.
"Forks," Alice suddenly said.
"Excuse me?" Jasper asked.
"Forks, Washington. That's where we need to go," Alice said.
She gave him a quick kiss and then got off the bed to start packing.
"Well then, it looks like Forks's population is going to increase by two," Jasper said.
He also then got up and began helping Alice pack.
Jasper and Alice now stood on front of a huge house. Jasper would be lying I he did not say he was nervous about this.
"Alice, you didn't tell me we were meeting a coven," Jasper said, not even bothering to whisper because he knew who ever lived in this house could hear them.
"They're different. Trust me," Alice replied, wrapping her arm through his.
They did not even need to knock on the door. A tall, handsome, blond haired man opened the door.
"Hello there," a man said, not at all surprised to see them.
"Which room's mine?" Alice asked.
Jasper and the man looked at her in shock.
"I beg your pardon?" a brunette haired woman asked as she walked up behind the man.
"You'll have to forgive her," Jasper said.
"My name is Carlisle. This is my wife, Esme, and my children, Rosalie, Emmett, and Edward," the man introduced himself as the rest of his family appeared.
"I'll take Edward's," Alice said.
"What?" he asked.
"Like you couldn't read my mind?" Alice asked with a smile.
Jasper gave her a confused look.
"He's a mind reader?" he asked.
"And she can see the future," Edward said.
"You saw us?" the blonde, Rosalie, asked.
"Yes," Alice said.
She then took notice that Emmett had wrapped a protected arm around Rosalie. And then a vision started to overcome her.
"Is she all right?" the man apparently the blonde's mate asked.
"Quite. Alice is having a vision," Jasper said.
Flashes were going on in Alice's mind. A human girl with Edward. The girl in their house. She knew what this would mean because she had been through it with Jasper. When Alice came out of her vision, she smiled at Edward.
"You life is going to get a whole lot more interesting," she said.
