For those of you who are reading my other stories, I will be updating! I promise :-)

Summary: My name is Edward Cullen and today, I met an alien. That's not an expression or anything. No, I mean, I literally met an extraterrestrial. In the form of a gorgeous brunette.

Today was a rough one. One of the people I counsel had a moment of weakness in which he gave in to his addiction. The guilt he felt over it was apparent in the conversation he had with me.
I stared at the man who had just admitted one of his biggest mistakes, waiting for him to continue. To explain to me how his moment of weakness made him feel.
I internally sighed. I had so much hope for him. He was eighteen years olds for God's sake.
"Why do you feel that way, Jasper?"
He opened and closed his mouth a few times. Then he looked down. The words came pouring out.
"I can't even go a whole month without using. It's been tempting to go out and find heroine, but I tried so hard to avoid it. And then, the first time I'm put in a situation where there are drugs, I give in. God, it felt so good to just give in. What fucking good am I? I'm hurting the people around me. I'm a terrible person."
He shouldn't be putting himself in these situations.
"You have an addiction," I interrupted. "A disease. It's not something that can be cured overnight. It doesn't make you a terrible person, but only you can control your actions. You can be strong and overcome this. It won't be easy, but it's possible. But you are the only person who can make that choice. I'm not presenting the other choice as an option because you've come to me, willingly, and admitted your problem."
Then I asked him the question he needed to be asked. There's always a choice.
"Do you want to overcome your addiction?"
Without hesitation, he responded, "Of course, I do."
I shook my head to clear it of the conversation. I needed to learn how to leave work at work. Tanya hated when I got in a mood, so I had headed to the only place that allowed me to find a sense of peace, a meadow that I had stumbled across when my buddy Emmett and I were hiking one day. I had driven quite a while to get here and was strongly considering staying with my parents tonight. Tanya just didn't understand. I had tried to talk to her about it before, but it would put her in a foul mood for the rest of the day. Understandable. My job was depressing. But it could be so rewarding and was definitely worth these…moods.
I walked the mile-long trail that led to the meadow, blanket in hand. I stopped for a second at the two trees that formed an arch and smiled. When Emmett and I had walked this trail years ago, we had walked under this arch. First, we stared at it for a good ten minutes. Then, Emmett cracked a joke that the trees knew we were royalty.
I laughed at the memory and continued walking.
After a good twenty minutes, I finally reached my destination. I set my blanket down and lay down to look up at the sunset. The sky was a mix of reds, oranges, and even purples. I could already hear the music this picture inspired within me. I just wasn't sure when I'd be able to actually find the time to play this song on the piano. My job was exhausting.
I groaned and shut my eyes. I focused on calming myself through my breathing.
In and out.
In and out.
A loud noise that sounded like metal crunching made me shoot up. The sky was black, and I could see the stars.
Fuck, I fell asleep. Tanya's going to kill me for not letting her know I wasn't coming back to the apartment.
I pulled my phone out of my pocket and saw it was 9:52 PM. I had slept for almost two hours! A rustling noise made me jump up and drop my phone.
What the fuck was that? Perfect. I fall asleep and now I'm probably going to get murdered.
I then remembered the loud noise that had woken me up. I looked around frantically but I couldn't see anything.
And then I heard the footsteps. I whipped around and again saw nothing.
Fuck, I'm an idiot. Now the killer knows I'm here.
I rolled my eyes. I was being ridiculous. It probably was just an animal.
A large, dangerous animal. I turned back around.
A small brown-haired woman was standing before me. And she was naked. I averted my eyes as quickly as possible, but not fast enough. I had seen it all. Every part of her voluptuous body.
Tanya was going to be pissed.
Ahhh...what do you think?
