Chapter 7:

(Jayden's POV: Early the Next Day)

Peter and Charlotte were back at home while Jasper and I ran up to Seattle for some 'breakfast'. I knew that Jasper needed to feed and so did I, thus the reason we were heading through the woods and into the dirtiest part of the city. He either would always had his hand in mine or kept his eyes on me.

Looking over at Jasper I could see the resemblance between him and Ray. I smiled to myself as I took his hand in mine.

"You want to feed together?" I asked him smiling. I could see doubt that suddenly appeared in his eyes. "What's the problem?" I wondered as I pulled him to a stop.

Jasper sighed and took both of my hands in his with his head bowed down, looking at them as he traced my knuckles with his thumbs. "I just wanna let cha know that..." His eyes came up to mine and I saw that tears were welling up in his eyes.

I walked forward and wrapped my arms around him. "Don't worry about anything." I whispered as I rose on the tips of my toes and began to tentatively kiss his neck. "What happened in the past is just that, the past. Now, I don't know about you, but I'm thirsty and I remember something about you promising to take Rayne horseback riding when we get home." I smiled sweetly up at him.

Jasper just nodded as a small smile tugged at his lips while kissing my cheek.

We both took off and headed towards a hunting ground. It didn't take us long before we were in the right place. The grimy Seattle streets were filled with drug dealers along with hookers. I cut my eyes to Jaspers' and noticed that he was eying a man that was walking -er- stalking a woman. I squeezed his hand as I let it go. It didn't take long before he vanished from my side and grabbed the man taking him in the alley way to feed.

I spotted a hooker that saw the whole thing so I decided that she would be my meal.

Walking up to her, I felt her stiffen, but relax as she spotted me. Sure, we demons sent out that same instinct to shy away as vampires did, but with me being half phoenix, it pretty much cancels that feeling out.

"What can I do for you?" I could smell the disease in her blood. I knew she wouldn't be alive much longer even without my assistance.

"Well, I was wondering if you would do something for me." I smiled innocently. "I have a boyfriend and he wants to watch me with another woman."

Her eyes widen in shock. "I haven't done that before, but for the right amount of money…" She turned to let me get a good look at her. "What do you think? Am I the right girl for the job?"

"You sure are." I told her taking her hand. "My boyfriend is in the alley over there waiting for us. Then we'll head home where the fun can begin." I winked at her.

The girl just nodded as she followed me into the alley. No one paid attention, because of the fact she was with a woman. I just smirked as soon as we were out of view from everyone.

I spun around and grabbed the woman. Her eyes widen in sudden fear, but I didn't let her scream as I clamped my hand over her mouth and bared her neck. It took no more than a few minutes before I was moaning from the taste of her blood. It had been a while since I fed.

Having finished her, I dropped her into a dumpster and then lit the match. I jumped back far enough that when it catch fire I was nowhere near. I ran off into the woods knowing that Jasper would meet me there.

It took about a few minutes before I came to the place where I was meeting Jasper. I looked around and found that he was leaning against one of the tree trunks looking at me. His eyes were dark, but I knew it wasn't from hunger. I shivered knowing that he wanted me, but we had to get back. He had promised Raylin that he would take her horseback riding.

He stood straight and started towards me, however, before I could say anything, I was pinned to a tree trunk with Jasper's hands gripping my waist. I could only shiver with the feel of him kissing me. I knew that it wasn't right, because we didn't even know each other, but there was nothing from stopping us. Our mating instincts seemed to be in complete control of us now.

Just then the phone rang.

Jasper growled as he pulled away and pulled his phone out flipping it open. "Ya better have a damn good excuse of callin' me an' interruptin' us." His eyes were raking my form.

"Yer daughter's askin' for ya." Peter's voice came across the line. "Any way, y'all have time fer that later."

The line went dead.

Jasper growled as he flipped his phone closed. "One of these days, I'm gonna get that man." He took my hand and led the way back to the house. I could tell that Jasper was a little pissed that we hadn't consummated our relationship.

We ran in silence on the way back to the house. I could feel that he was projecting anger, but it wasn't directed at me.

Pulling on his hand, I stopped him about half way to the house.

"Jasper?" I called to him, waiting for him to look at me.

When he did, his eyes had lost their color and they were black as if his pupils had dilated over any bit of color, aside the whites.

"Peter had a reason to stop us when we did." I kissed him on the cheek. "Anyway, I might be able to get someone to watch Rayne sometime soon, so that way we can have some alone time." I tried to push as much happiness at him as I could.

I was in his arms in an instant. "I love ya, darlin'." He told me, as he kissed me on the lips.

I pulled back to look at him in adoration and I felt my stomach flip at the first time hearing this.

"I love you too, Jasper." I responded with just as much intensity as he has deliveredbefore Ichuckled as I grabbed his hand and took off running with Jasper was beside me the whole way home.

(Bella's Pov – Just pulled to Blacks house)

"What are you doing here, Bella?" His dark eyes were boring holes in me as if I was his enemy.

I swallowed. "I wondered what you have been up to." I looked at my hands and took a deep breath. "I haven't seen you and since I know about you now..." Looking up I could see that his dark eyes had softened, but there was something there that worried me.

"Come in." Jake said begrudgingly as he moved out of the way.

I walked in and noticed that it was the same as before. I took a seat on the couch and looked at the boy that I played with as a child.

"Why are you really here Bella?" He asked me taking a chair crossing his arms.

"That readable." I looked up with a smirk on my face.

Jake was grinning as he shrugged with a crooked grin. "No, one knows you like I do." His eyes had a gleam to them that made me worried.

I leaned back and sighed. "I needed to talk to someone about this." I bit my lip as I tried to hold back the tears. "I have Jayden, but she's just found her mate. While I'm happy for her..."

The next thing I knew Jacob's arms were around me.

"But you wish you had one of your own." He finished for me as he whispered against my hair.

I nodded."I'm sorry that I didn't tell you about Ed...the Cullen's, but I couldn't." I pulled away and looked at him. "They told me to keep it a secret, because they hadn't known about the wolves. If I could have, I would have told you, but now I need someone to tell me that it was all real. That HE did love me. Jacob, I know you don't want to hear this, but..." I could see the understanding in his eyes.

"But you love him."

I nodded. "It feels like a hole was punched through my chest." I held the place where it hurt the most. "I know you care for me, Jacob, but I never felt that way about you. You are a great friend and like a brother."

Jacob had tears in his eyes. "I understand, Bells." He gave me a hug. "When I first found out, I was happy, but scared. I then found out why there was such a fuss lately. You know Harry's kids right? Leah and Seth?"

I nodded looking up into his eyes. He sighed as he unwrapped his arms from around me and rub the bridge of his nose. "Well Leah was going out with Sam before he phased." He looked at me. "It wasn't four weeks later that Leah's cousin Emily came down from a rez up north. As soon as Sam seen her he broke up with Leah and went with Emily because she was his imprintee. What that means is that Emily was Sam's mate, but for them to be together, Sam had to hurt Leah even though he didn't want to."

I then realized what he was talking about. "You didn't imprint on me, did you?" Jacob shook his head.

"No, Bells, I didn't." He looked almost sad. "I thought about grabbing you and running but I know that wouldn't do any good because if I found my imprintee out there I would leave you all alone. I can't do that to you Bella no matter how I feel."

I smiled as I hugged him. "Thanks for telling me this." I pulled back. "I just want us to be friends. You're the only one that I can talk to without them thinking I'm crazy."

Jake scoffed. "I do think you're crazy." He shot me a look. "Crazy for running with vampires and demons. They can suck you dry in a nanosecond." he shook his head. "I always knew that you liked danger, but this is a little over board, don't ya think?"

I slapped his arm playfully. "Hey, I do not like trouble it just finds me and Jay is half Phoenix!" I pouted as I crossed my arms and huffed up like I was upset.

I didn't realize, but Jake smirked and lunged at me tickling my sides. I laughed like I hadn't in a long time. I was suddenly very thankful that I was able to have my best friend back. It hurt that I couldn't talk to him. And now I can talk to him about anything.

Of course, I was worried about Victoria, but tomorrow I will speak to Jasper and Jayden ask them what I should do. I also want to know if Jacob will take me cliff diving. Since he is a wolf shifter, he could catch me with no problem and I could see if it was really as fun as they say.
