AN: I'm so sorry that I'm so late with this. I planned on getting it out earlier but somehow it just didn't work out. That and homework is kicking my ass!
I seriously love all the reviews I'm getting it just makes me giddy hehe! Ohh Rene coming in this chapter! Drama?
I don't really have much to say other then I do not own Twilight
I just grinned and leaned back against him and started talking to Rose again. Not wanting to even think about all the drama Renee was going to bring with her. I knew that nothing could ever come between Jasper and me and that's all that mattered to me.
I was sitting in Esme's living room next to Jasper sweating bullets. Rene was coming today and of course she didn't call to tell us when she would be here and that was making me antsy. I knew that she would just come here and make my life miserable. Not to mention my dad's life miserable. She deluded herself into the fact that my dad was still pinning after her all this time. It was going to drive him crazy and I felt for the guy. Jasper lightly squeezed my hand. "Relax Darlin' you're wound up tighter then a top and its driving me insane." He said in his low southern drawl.
I instantly relaxed, his voice did that to me. "I'm sorry but I just know that Rene is going to cause problems. I hate that she's coming here." I complained.
Jasper just put his arm around me and pulled me into his side. "Well Darlin' I wont let anything happen to you. And if Rene decides she wants to hurt you then she's going to be introduced to the Major." I shivered at his slightly hardened tone. Jasper turned and smirked at me. "Well if you feel that way maybe I should bring the Major out into play more often." He wiggled his eyebrows at me and I just rolled my eyes.
"Stop. But I really am worried. She likes to ruin good things for me and she has deluded herself into thinking that my dad is still pinning after her and she's going to make his life miserable as well."
We both heard a low growl and I looked at Jasper in alarm and he chuckled. I turned around in time to see Esme walking out the door.
I looked at Jasper with wide eyes. "It seems like Esme doesn't like that too much." Now I was confused. "Darlin' Esme and your father have been seeing each other for somewhere around a month now. She wants to get to know her mate."
I continued to stare at him through wide eyes until it sunk in. Then I smiled real wide. "Esme and my dad?" Jasper nodded. I started to get giddy. "Oh how cute! They make such a cute couple and I know that dad had liked her for a while but didn't say anything because she was you know married but I'm just so excited!"
I was bouncing and squealing like a little girl. "Darlin' I'm glad that your happy but could you tone it down a bit?" Jasper asked.
Just then Peter walked in. "Keep it up Little Bit. It'd be funny to watch the Major bouncing around like a little girl."
Jasper then gained a mischievous smirk and suddenly Peter started giggling, not laughing giggling, and bouncing around. "Real manly there Captain." Jasper snorted.
"Major...please...stop!" Peter got out in between giggles.
I laughed along with Jasper, Char, Emmett and Rose (who all came out when they heard Peter giggling). We kept on laughing until I started to feel bad for Peter. "Jasper, that's enough now."
Jasper turned to look at me and I gave him my big puppy dog eyes and he sighed. "Alright."
Peter stopped laughing immediately and went to spring at Jasper. "Peter Whitlock! You are in Esme's house and she will have your ass if you mess it up, not to mention what I'm going to do!" Char scolded.
Peter got out of his crouch and sent a glare at Jasper that spoke volumes.
"Just wait for it." Peter growled out then stalked out of the room.
Jasper rolled his eyes and I suppressed giggles. I jumped up and looked down at Jasper. "Come on. Lets go see my dad at the station." I smirked. "I want to tease him and Esme."
Jasper just shook his head and chuckled. "Alright lets go."
Ten minutes later, due to Jasper's insane speeding problem, we were pulling into the police station. Jasper helped me out of the truck and I spotted Esme's car. I barely suppressed giggles as we walked into the station. Jasper chuckled at me and pulled me in closer.
When we got inside I seen Andy. "Hiya Andy. Is my dad in?"
He smiled at me. "Hello Bella. Yea he's in. He's in his office talking with Miss. Platt." He said. (And I think that's Esme's maiden name. If I'm wrong please let me know.)
I nodded at him. "Thank you."
He nodded and went back to work. As we were walking back to my dad's office I looked at Jasper and asked, "We aren't going to walk in on anything icky are we?"
Jasper laughed and said, "No. I can't hear or feel anything like that."
I sighed. "Thank God. I like the fact that Esme and my dad are together but I do not want to see that."
Jasper laughed and I opened the door to my dad's office. What I saw made me melt. Esme was sitting on my dad's lap curled into his chest and my dad was running his fingers through her hair to sooth her. I couldn't help my reaction. "Awe. That's so cute!" I cooed at them.
They both jumped, startled and looked at me and Jasper. Esme looked at us with wide eyes and I struggled to keep in my laughter while Jasper merely smirked at her. "Bella I was-" However I but her off. "Esme, don't worry about it! I'm not mad or upset at all. I'm actually very happy about this! You two couldn't be more perfect for one another."
Dad smiled at me and said, "You don't know how much that means to me, Bells."
I smiled real wide at him. "You should have seen it, I was so giddy and excited that I was damn near affecting Jasper." I sent a wink at Esme who had to stifle her laughter.
Jasper rolled his eyes and said, "Yeah Peter thought it was real funny." Then he gave his customary smirk. "But I got him back."
Esme's eyes got wide and she stood up and put her hands on her hips. "You didn't break anything did you?"
Jasper shook his head. "No ma'am. I knew that you would kick my ass."
I cut in, "Yeah not to mention I'd probably through something at you."
"Yeah that too."
"What about Peter? I know that his temper gets the best of him sometimes, especially when it comes to you." Esme said.
"Don't you worry about that. Char took care of that." Jasper said.
Dad shook his head. "I have no idea how someone so tiny can be so intimidating."
"That's because me, Peter, and Char haven't had a pleasant life. We had to constantly fight to protect ourselves. As soon as Peter brought Char to me, I started training her and she became part of my family. I protect my family with everything I got." Jasper proclaimed.
I knew that talking about the fighting that he had been put through always made him a bit depressed so I wrapped my arms around his waist and squeezed as tightly as I could. "Well I'm glad to hear that from you." Dad said then changed the subject to happier subjects.
We were all laughing in dad's office when Esme and Jasper suddenly stilled. I looked at them in confusion and they shook themselves out of it and went back to talking with my dad. I caught Jasper's eyes and looked at him in confusion but he just shook his head.
A few minutes later we heard the door to my dad's office open and in came my mother. She paused when she seen us all then quickly got her bearings back and walked over to me. She pulled me into her arms and I stiffened. I heard Jasper growl quietly. "Oh Bella, I've missed you so much!" She squealed like she was five.
Yeah and I'm a green elf tickled pink. "Hey mom." Was the only thing that I said. I don't know what she was expecting out of me but that was what she got.
She pulled away from me and I moved into the shelter of Jasper's side. She looked at him, appraising him like a piece of meat. I glared at the side of her head until she turned her attention away from me and Jasper and toward dad and Esme. When she saw Esme her eyes narrowed then when her eyes moved to dad she gained a predatory smile and rushed forward. "Oh Charlie, you look so good!" She said while hanging on to him like her life depended on it. "I just knew that you would be here, just like old times."
"Er- umm thanks Rene." He said while looking very uncomfortable.
I decided to save him and well by extension Rene because it looked like Esme was going to kill her, "How's Phil doing mom?" I asked coldly.
She slowly pulled away and turned to look at me. Her eyes cooled as they landed on me and I knew that she knew what I was doing. "He's fine. He tells me to tell you that he said hi and that he loves you."
I inclined my head. "Well when you see him again give him my best."
Her eyes quickly went to Jasper at my side then back to me and she gained a smirk. "Well this certainly doesn't look like Edward to me."
Jasper visibly tensed at that name and the only reason he wasn't snarling is because I squeezed him in warning. "No this isn't Edward. This is Jasper and I'm no longer with Edward."
"Oh but you and Edward sounded so perfect for each other." She said.
I knew that she was trying to goad Jasper but I knew that wouldn't end well so I ended it before it got any further. "I used to think that until he hit me for the first time." I said in an ice cold tone.
Rene didn't know what to say to that so she just didn't. She turned her attention to Jasper and said, "Well my apologies. I'm Rene Dawyer, Bella's mother."
"Jasper Whitlock ma'am." Jasper drawled in a polite tone.
Her smile turned flirtatious. "So Cowboy," I felt him shudder in revulsion at my nickname for him coming out of her mouth. "What brings you to Forks?"
"Well ma'am, me and my brother and his wife came up to visit Esme, see she's our last living relative after we lost my mamma and dad so we thought it would be nice to come see her." Jasper said and I nearly swooned at the sound of his voice. It was moments like this, very inappropriate moments, that his voice affected me the most.
Her eyes were wide. "How old are you and your brother."
"I'm twenty two and my brother Peter is nineteen and Char, my brother's wife, is nineteen." He said. (And I know that I got the ages wrong but I wanted them that way.)
Her eyes got even wider. "Wow so young."
Jasper shrugged. "Peter and I are wise beyond our years. We know love when we see it. When Peter first brought Char home to meet me I knew that he was never gonna let her go so I never objected to anything."
I smiled up at Jasper and snuggled even more into his side. "How about your mother?" One might think that Rene was asking questions just to get to know him better but if you knew Rene you knew that she was digging and prying.
"Mamma passed away long before Peter ever met Char and my dad went before her. I practically raised Peter. So I'm the only one he needed to worry about."
"Any children?" Rene asked in a slightly snotty tone. Everyone in the room knew what she was implying and I could tell that Jasper didn't like it one bit.
His eyes narrowed just the tiniest bit. "No ma'am. Char can't have any children."
Her face adopted a sympathetic look. "Oh that's to bad for her."
I knew that Jasper was about five seconds from throwing her against the wall so I directed her attention elsewhere and felt bad that Esme was up on the chopping block so to speak. "Mom this is Esme Platt."
Rene turned her attention to Esme and her face turned cold. "Nice to meet you." Rene said in her fake voice.
Esme, the better, actor was a little more believable. "Nice to meet you too."
Rene looked Esme up and down and even though on the outside she showed no emotions I could tell that she was slightly afraid of the younger woman's looks and the soft glances that my dad and Esme were giving each other. "Are you married?" Rene asked.
Esme clenched her jaw and shook her head. "Divorced." She almost spat out.
Rene tried to hide her smirk at the bitter tone but I could see it peeking through. "He leave you?"
Esme snorted. "No he most certainly did not. I divorced him. The egotistical bastard lost all sense of meaning of the word family and he just wasn't the man that I had married anymore." She looked down at her feet. "With him I regret a lot of my actions I did things just because he told me to or ignored certain things for him."
I moved out of Jasper's arms and gave Esme a hug. "It's okay Esme, I still love you." I whispered in her ear. She gave me a squeeze then I left her arms to go back to Jasper.
"Children?" Rene asked.
"Carlisle and I had adopted three children and when Carlisle and I split two went with him and I never thought that I would say this but I'm glad that Edward and Alice went with him. I mean Edward was violent with Bella and Alice was a control freak that threw temper tantrums when she didn't get her way. She was even more egotistical then Carlisle was." Then her face softened into the most beautiful smile. "Emmett stayed. He's my big teddy bear. He's a big ol' hulk of a man but as soft as a teddy bear. He even went and got his last name changed to Platt instead of Cullen. Also Rosalie Hale. She's my niece. My late sister's child and I've had her with me every since she was a newborn." I stifled my laughter at her word choice because it was in fact true.
"Hmm a big old loving family." Rene said with disguised disdain.
I just rolled my eyes and looked at my dad to see him having a similar reaction. "Well jasper and I served our purpose in coming here today. I think we are gonna go back to the house." I turned to grin at Esme. "I wanna see Peter try and beat the shit out of Jasper."
Esme just rolled her eyes. "You better not fight in my house."
"No ma'am. There are three people in this world that I don't want to get on their bad side. That would be Bella, Char, and you." Jasper said.
Esme and I grinned smugly at each other. "It's cause we gots skills baby." I said with a grin.
He rolled his eyes at me then heaved me over his shoulder as I squealed in laughter. "Jasper! Let me down!"
"Nope." He said popping the P.
I heard dad and Esme chuckling. "Daddy come on. Get him to put me down."
Dad just shook his head. "Nope you're on your own."
Jasper playfully swatted my butt and said, "Lets go." He turned and started for the door. I could see Dad and Esme's amused expressions and Rene didn't look to pleased.
When we were finally in his truck I sighed and said, "Well that went better then I thought it would."
Jasper looked at me and raised an eyebrow. "Really?"
I shrugged. "It could have been worse."
He didn't say anything to that he just tugged me over so I was sitting right next to him and I curled into his side. We were silent the whole way back to the house and I went straight inside and up to the room that Jasper had claimed as his, ignoring the people calling my name. I went into his room and laid down on the massive bed and tried to will away the headache that I had.
A few minutes later the door opened and I opened my eyes to see Rose and Char standing in the doorway. I patted the bed on either side of me and they laid down with me. No words were said, they knew that I didn't need any words I just needed my sisters close to me. We stayed in silence for the longest time not saying anything until we started talking about normal girl stuff. When I finally fell asleep that night, on Jasper's bed, I was feeling much better.
I woke up in the morning to see Jasper laying on the bed with me and I was curled into his arms. I stretched and yawned. "Mmm what time is it?" I asked sleepily.
He chuckled. "It's around noon. You, Rose, and Char were up late last night talking." He said.
I smiled. "I know. I really needed that." Then a thought struck me and I felt a surge of panic. "What about dad?"
"Don't worry about it. He had called last night when you were in the shower and Rose and Char asked if you could stay the night. He said that it was fine. But warned us to expect a visit from Rene because she was pissed! I could practically feel her emotions over the phone!"
I rolled my eyes. "I don't really care what she thinks."
Jasper looked off into the distance for a second and said, "good because she's coming up the drive with Charlie." He concentrated for a moment then said, "He wanted to come pick you up himself but she insisted on coming."
I rolled my eyes again. "Sounds like Rene." I got up and headed to the bathroom. "I'll just be out in a minute."
I quickly did my business in the bathroom, not even looking at the mirror and went back out to Jasper. He was waiting for me by the door. And the sight he made, made my mouth go dry. He was leaning against the door in nothing but lose black sweatpants. My god did he look absolutely gorgeous. He defined muscles just begged to be touched and I defiantly wanted to touch them, his scars only leaving faint marks that were visible to the human eye and I think they just made him look even sexier. "Are you sure that we just can't crawl right back into that bed?" I whispered with desire.
I took great delight in watching his ruby eyes get dark. It wasn't long before everyone just stopped asking why his eyes were red. Some looked at them in awe and some with slight fear, then there was me who just looked at them with desire. To me the red eyes looked so sexy on him. And it didn't bother me that he, Peter, and Char hunted humans. Because I knew that they hunted the scum of the earth.
He growled low in his throat and gently pushed me back onto the bed. "You torture me." He whispered right before his mouth claimed mine.
My arms went around his neck and threaded into his hair. He gently ran his tongue over my lower lip and I opened my mouth. His tongue swept in and battled mine for dominance. I gave up the fight easily and let him take control of the kiss. His hands moved down to my hips and he quickly turned us so that I was straddling him. I immediately started rocking my hips into his and he growled. His lips left mine and went to my neck. My head fell back as he lightly nipped her neck and moaned when he soothed the tiny sting with his tongue. I moaned again and ground my hips into his when he started sucking on my neck and his hands moved to my chest. "Don't stop." I said breathlessly.
He pulled away and grinned at me. "Darlin' I'm just getting started."
He had just moved back to my neck when Peter's annoying voice yelled, "Jasper, Bella! Charlie's here!"
I actually growled and Jasper was right along with me. "Damn bastard is feeling so fucking smug right now." He said.
I sighed and got off of him. "Well lets go before Rene barges her way up here."
I headed for the door and went downstairs without even waiting for Jasper. When I got into the living room Peter looked at me with a smug smile and I narrowed my eyes at him. "You shouldn't have done that you know. He's pissed."
Peter's eyes widened some and he whined, "But I didn't do anything."
"You know what you did." I hissed at him and he practically flinched back. "And you were feeling entirely to smug."
Peter's shoulder's dropped and he whispered, "Shit."
It was just then I noticed Dad and Rene and well everyone else in the room. "Morning daddy." I said smiling at him.
"Morning Bells." he said smiling back.
"Morning Rene." and she just sneered back at me. Man if she hates it so much here why does she makes these trips?
Then all attention was focused on Jasper and Peter as Jasper made his way into the room. "We will discuss this later Captain."
"Of course Major." Peter said quietly, taking a submissive posture.
Now most people would think that Jasper was over reacting and if he would have been human they would have been right. Male vampires get pissed when someone interrupts their time with their mate and it's even more so for Jasper because of the war. It's made him possessive and he didn't have much time for happiness.
Rene looked between them with wide, calculating eyes while Dad just ignored it. He was used to the way things worked between the Whitlock's. At first dad had been really worried that it was an abusive relationship, but when Jasper took him aside and explained a bit of their past to him he understood a lot better, that and he realized that Jasper loved them to much to ever raise a hand to them to hurt them out of anger.
When everyone was sitting down, with me and Jasper snuggled into the love seat, Rene finally spoke up. "what the hell was that?" Jasper looked at her with a raised eyebrow. "What the hell is wrong with you?"
Everyone tensed and dad looked at Rene with a disbelieving look. Peter, Char and I were focused on Jasper. He was absolutely furious. He stood up and walked a couple of feet to stand in front of Rene. "I don't tell you how to run your family so you don't need to fucking comment on how I run mine. Peter, Char and I have had a tough life, tougher then you could imagine. The way I run things has kept them alive."
Rene snorted. "Let me guess, drugs?"
I wanted to get up and smack the grin right off her face and was about to stand up and do so when Jasper's laugh stopped me. It was cold and quite frightening. "Uh oh the Major is out to play in full force." Peter whispered.
"I wish it had been that simple." the Major said. "I was trained to fight and kill and if I didn't do certain things well I was in a world of pain. No pain doesn't even cover it, neither does agony. Peter was brought into this for the very same reasons and it was because of Peter that I started to fight back a little, I had to protect my little brother. Now Charlotte was brought into this life to service other men, willingly or not." I could see Char flinching. My dad looked disgusted, Emmett and Rose and Esme looked heartbroken and Peter was trying to comfort Char. "Now she was never raped per say but there is a lot more to it then actual penetration. Ask Isabella I bet she can tell you." Now it was my turn to flinch as everyone turned to look at me. The Major leaned down real close to Rene. "If I ever hear you mention anything about the way I run things you are going to learn first hand why they call me the God of War."
Rene looked beyond scared and even she had the brain's to know that she overstepped some boundaries. "Of course. I'm sorry."
I just looked down at my hands in my lap as memories of Edward forcing himself on me came back. I could practically feel him doing things to me right now. A tear fell from my eye and the Major was by my side. He ran his hands through my hair, soothingly and whispered, "I'm sorry Isabella, I didn't mean to make the memories come back."
I just let more tears fall and the Major picked me up and started walking for the stairs. "We will be back." He said and left no room for arguments.
We carried me up to his room and sat on the bed just running his hands through my hair and purring.
I slowly calmed down. I wiped my eyes and whispered, "Thank you."
"Anytime Darlin'." I knew that Jasper was back with that sentence.
"I'm so sorry about what Rene said."
"Shh it's okay." Jasper whispered.
I sniffed and laid my head in the crook of his neck. "You know it's going to get worse?"
Jasper sighed and said, "Well we will deal with this together."
I smiled and kissed the side of his neck. "Together."
Again so sorry with the delay, school and work has tripped me up something horrible. So some drama with Rene and Jasper in this one. Next will be more drama and guess who starts it? Gasp Rene! Of course she does. And I'm also thinking about working Marcus back in, maybe him coming to tell Jasper what's going on with the three twits? Let me know what you think. Oh and one question, do you guys think that I should introduce the wolves or what? Please review!
