Chapter 5 – In Another’s Eyes
I do not own Twilight or anything youtube/Garth Brooks related.
Jasper pulled into the Expo parking lot and sent her a wink, before stepping out of the truck. He opened the door for her then did a gentleman’s bow, before helping her down.
“Rodeo first then we hit the fairgrounds.”
She nodded but Jasper picked on her apprehension. He recoiled once he recalled why. He had never felt like a bigger jerk than he had at this very moment. Just how fucking heartless can you get?
“Jesus. What the fuck was I thinking? I’m sorry. Bella darlin’, we can do something else.”
Bella drew back a quivery breath but regarded the Expo center in thought.
“Nah, I’m takin’ ya somewhere else.”
He opened the passenger side door and gestured for her to step inside.
“Jasper, I’m fine. Really. It’s like you said this is a part of who you are. We can’t let what happened to my father get in the way of that. If we do… she wins. And that’s just another form of control. We’re past that shit and moving on, remember?”
Jasper took her hand and kissed it.
“Are you sure?”
“I’m positive. I’ll be okay, Jasper.”
“He’d be proud of you. You know that, right?”
Bella managed to smile and Jasper hugged her. He knew Bella meant what she said but still, he had that sense of melancholy and it was coming off her. Jasper knew that Bella thought the world of her father. They’d many talks about him in general. She even admitted to being more like him than that of her mother.
“If you ever want to talk, I’m here. Now that being said… I can understand if there’s some resentment, considering it was my wife.”
Bella lifted her head on this and Jasper wiped her tears with his thumbs.
“Jasper, I have no resentment towards you. You can’t control Alice no more than I can control Edward.”
“Damn…” He muttered under his breath.
“You never seize to amaze me, you know that? Any other woman would’ve hightailed it by now. Yet here you are… with that same look in your eyes. How in the fuck did I get so lucky?”
“I have no idea…” Bella taunted and Jasper laughed.
“Does this mean you’re ready for your first rodeo?”
He smiled and slammed the door shut.
“Well hell, let’s get to it.”
She nodded as he took her by the hand and led her inside. Jasper found their seats then grabbed them both a beer. Once the rodeo started he wrapped his arm around her.
“What’s that taste like?” Bella questioned as he was taking a pull off his beer.
“Not any different actually. It’s funny… certain things like beer, whiskey, and cigarettes never change.”
“Can you get drunk?”
“Oh yeah. Takes a little more but I sure can.”
Bella snorted on this.
“That would be so weird.”
“What? Seeing me drunk?”
“Yeah. You always have so much control.”
“Hmm…” He hummed in thought.
Jasper spent most of his time enjoying Bella’s reaction to her very first rodeo. He knew she was truly enjoying herself, but even more so once she realized Peter and Char were in this particular rodeo. Bella knew they did shows from time to time, but she hadn’t a clue what all they did exactly. Peter had entered the bull riding contest and Char was in the barrel races. Both participated in the roping events as well. Bella cheered them on but questioned Jasper as to why he hadn’t told her. He shrugged and grabbed a couple more beers. It was then that Bella realized she wasn’t being carded. She figured that to be Jasper’s doing as well. She never realized just how much he used his empathy.
After the rodeo, Jasper took her to the fairgrounds.
“Beginner’s luck!” The carny spat as Jasper shot all of the bad guys.
Jasper cocked a brow at this.
“Another dollar says you can’t do that again…”
“And if I can…” Jasper challenged.
“Then you can have your pick of whatever you see here. Give the little lady your with something special. Only a cheap ass takes a gal like that to a carnival.” The carny taunted with a wink Bella’s direction.
Jasper handed another dollar over. He nodded towards the stuffed animal he had in mind. The carny laughed. “Sure… Go for it.” Bella’s jaw dropped as he didn’t miss a beat and shot at all the targets with dead on accuracy, even when the carny tried to sneak in a couple extra.
“How ‘bout that horse now?” Jasper uttered with a wide grin.
“Show off…” The carny bitterly muttered and went on to hand the horse over.
“Thank ya!” Jasper said and handed the horse over to Bella.
“Looks just like Bullet!” She said whilst hugging it close.
“Why do you think I picked it?” He said with a wink.
“So you wanna ride anything?”
“Anything?” Bella taunted and Jasper wiggled his brows.
“Hell, we can find a place…”
This had her thinking back to Edward and how he would’ve reacted. He would’ve had that look of absolute disapproval and would’ve gone on and on about how they couldn’t do that. That was something she never understood. Jasper was the more feral one, yet he seemed to have more control than that of Edward. More control in the sense of not acting like he had to hold back when it came to physical contact. Sure, it messed with his bloodlust from time to time. But he didn’t let that stop him. It’s like he knew he’d never take things THAT far.
“You’re just so different…” She practically whispered.
He narrowed his eyes on this.
“If I would’ve said something like that to Edward…”
Jasper nodded in perfect understanding and led her to a more isolated area.
“You weren’t the only one. Alice never dug that sort of thing either. She always made me feel like a complete jackass. If I had said something like that to her… She would’ve given me a minute long speech about how I needed to be more of a gentleman.”
“You? More of a gentleman? Is that even possible?”
“Oh, I’m a gentleman when needed but an animal where it counts…” He said whilst kissing along her neck and breathing her in.
“Hmm…” he hummed and looked to be shaking something off.
“As to Edward… Well he’s a hundred year old virgin. If that tells you anything…”
“Wait… I thought he was joking.”
“Fraid not. Bella, Edward’s never had sex, not even in his human years.”
“So he thought we could just…”
“Why do you think he forced that whole engagement bit on you? The moment you said yes, he had you right where he wanted. That’s why I’m going out MY way to show you that there are options. The choice is yours, always has been.”
Bella hugged him and he kissed her forehead.
“We’re free, Bella. That’s all in the past. Don’t you ever hold back with me. You got that?”
She nodded against his chest.
“Now let’s put the dreaded exes behind us and go have some fun. How ‘bout that Sizzler?!” He pointed to one of the rides and Bella regarded it wide-eyed.
Jasper chuckled on this.
“Come now. Where’s your sense of adventure? After all, you only live once…” He mocked with a smirk.
“Jasper…” She groaned as he was already leading her that way.
“That’s beautiful.” Bella remarked as they were on the Ferris Wheel and at the very top now.
“Nowhere near as beautiful as you…” Jasper murmured and pecked her on the lips.
“Oh that was smooth…” She said and took a bite of the cotton candy he’d gotten her.
“Hopefully as smooth as this.” He said and retrieved a jewelry box from his jacket.
“Relax, sweetness. It’s not a ring.”
He handed it over and Bella drew back a hesitant breath as she opened it.
Inside was a necklace with a cowboy hat, boots, and guitar. Bella smiled as he went to place it on.
“Just my way of saying I’m just as much yours as you are mine.”
“I love it. Thank you, Jasper.”
“I wasn’t sure if that would be your thing or not. But I know you have a love for charms. So I figured I’d give it a whirl.”
“So you’re not going to kill me for gettin’ you a gift?”
“I’ll let it slide, this time.”
Jasper smiled then kissed her.
“So now what?” Bella questioned while looking to the necklace in awe.
“Hmmm… I’m taking you to dinner then dancing.”
“DANCING?!” Bella said looking beyond mortified.
“Ah now, I’m not talkin’ your typical ballroom or high school dance. You’ll see…”
“Chicken fried steak?” Jasper questioned in surprise.
“Yeah. It was my dad’s favorite.”
Once again this girl had him in awe. Of course she’d pick something that reminded her of someone else and for her very last meal as a human. That was most certainly Bella.
“Every Thursday… We’d eat at the café and like clockwork Dad would get the chicken fry.” Bella uttered in memory.
Jasper nodded as she cut into the chicken fry and took a bite.
“Oh yeah…” She said but had that gloomy mien about her.
This had him reaching over and taking her by the hand.
“Just so you know you’re getting dessert afterward.”
Bella looked to her plate rather wide-eyed and Jasper smiled.
“Last day…” He reminded and kissed her hand.
Jasper took it upon himself to read her the dessert menu as she ate.
“So what will it be?” He asked once he finished.
“Hmm… I guess the chocolate mousse.” She murmured with a shrug.
“Chocolate mousse it is!” He waved the waitress over and went ahead and ordered that.
“Do you want this coming back up later?” She hinted and Jasper wrinkled his nose in thought.
Bella looked to Jasper with slight apprehension as they entered the Midnight Rodeo bar.
“Relax, sweetness. You’re thinking too much on it. I’m about to rock your world.”
“It’s not you I’m worried about. Jasper, I can’t dance. Edward could’ve told you that much.”
“That’s because you had a shitty partner and shitty music to go with that.”
Jasper found them a booth then ordered a couple shots and some beers to go with those. He figured that would help take the edge off a bit. This girl was all nerves. Her jaw dropped however as she caught wind of a particular couple. They were all over that dance floor, with all kinds of fancy moves.
“We’re not doing THAT, right?”
Jasper had a good laugh at this.
“Not just yet… Give it some time and we’ll be dancing circles around those two.”
“I highly doubt that.”
“I’m more than willing to prove you wrong.”
Bella lifted her eyes on this.
“By time I’m done with ya. You’ll be all over that dance floor and you won’t bat an eye on it.”
Jasper raised his shot glass and Bella raised hers as well.
“Here’s to us and a whole new start.” He said before clanking his glass against hers.
They downed their shots. Jasper couldn’t help but to laugh as she chased hers with the beer.
“Don’t be an ass…” Bella said with a grin.
“Hey, at least you didn’t choke this time.”
Bella eyed him down as she took her other shot. Only this time she didn’t chase it down.
“Well alright then…” He murmured and chugged his other shot as well.
Jasper came to his feet then offered his hand.
“While the night’s still young.”
Bella swallowed back as he led her to the dance floor.
“First step, always trust your partner.”
Jasper let out a whistle and nodded towards the DJ. Bella had this stunned appearance as another song started to play – (In Another’s Eyes – Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood).
Just as she went to question him about this, he twirled her about then brought her towards him.
“Second, just look in my eyes. I’ll do the rest.”
“There you go…” He whispered once she got the hang of it.
“So funny story… The couple that’s singing this song their history is a lot like ours. Like Garth, I was married when I met the love of my life. The woman he’s singing with is his. And here I am… dancing with mine. Life has a funny way of working itself out, even when you least expect it.”
Bella got a little teary eyed and buried her face into his chest. He smiled and kissed the top of her head. They spent the rest of the night dancing and drinking to their heart’s desire. Jasper didn’t see the need to rush anything. He wanted her to have the full experience. After tonight, she’ll spend the next three days in the most excruciating pain she’s ever been in. And when she wakes, all those typical human traits will be gone.
“I think you’re drunk…” Bella uttered before taking another shot of tequila.
“On you maybe…” Jasper murmured as he had her licking the salt and lime off his hand.
Luke Bryan’s That’s My Kind Of Night was playing in the background.
“Fuck…” He whispered with his eyes flickering to that familiar spark of trouble.
Jasper pulled her into his lap and was kissing whatever part of her he could reach.
“Jasper…” Bella warned as his fangs made their appearance.
He closed his eyes and gave a mere nod.
“We better get you out of here.”
“That might be wise…” He admitted but was back to kissing her.
Once he had her outside, he backed her up against the truck. Bella let out a bit of a gasp as he lifted her up off the ground. That fire in his eyes remained as he kissed along her neck.
“I need to get you home…” He muttered with that painful glimmer.
Jasper reached over and opened the passenger side door.
“Buckle up. I’m flooring this one, baby.” He said once he had her inside.
Bella laughed as he rushed over to the driver’s side. The moment that engine roared to life, he peeled on out. Bella looked over as he was shifting gears and on a mission. He passed vehicle after vehicle and didn’t bother letting off the gas, not even once.
“Easy there, cowboy.”
“Fuck…” He expressed and was bucking off the seat.
“Say that shit again and I’ll have no choice but to pull over…” He said behind a growl.
The way he was acting had Bella’s blood pumping, in ways she never dreamed off. Just as soon as they pulled into the driveway, he killed the engine. Jasper reached over and before Bella could even blink, he had that seatbelt off and they were in the house. He carried her into the bedroom, slammed the door shut behind him then laid her on the bed.
“I mean are you really ready? This is it…” He made clear.
Bella’s heart raced in realization. His blazing eyes stayed locked onto hers.
He nodded in response. Jasper appeared before her then went on to rip every shred of clothing she had on. He took a moment to really look her over after.
“Bella…” He whispered in such a way and with that look of utter torment.
“This… It doesn’t seem real.” He murmured whilst running a hand up along her thigh.
“It is…” Bella reassured and Jasper smiled.
“I sure hope so.” He said while taking his shirt off and tossing it onto the floor.
“You’re so beautiful, Bella. And I mean YOU in general. So much so… it’s caused me physical pain for two fucking years. That ends tonight. You’re mine, Bella Swan. That means I will love and watch after you, always.”
Jasper unbuckled his belt and tore through his jeans. He eased his way in, stopped, then regarded his human once again.
“I want you to think back to that dance floor. Only this time… You’re going to close your eyes and let me lead. I mean it, Bella. It’s very important that you let me do this MY way.”
Bella nodded and did as requested. Jasper nodded amongst himself and began to thrust. He took his time kissing and licking all along her body. The more he did this, the more that hunger kicked in. He gritted his teeth as all he could think about was sinking his teeth into that sweet neck of hers. Bella cried out his name and Jasper lost all composure. He sank his fangs into her neck and the way she moaned had him thrusting even harder. He drank as he spread his venom throughout various parts of her body.
“Jasper…” She weakly moaned.
This had the vampire’s eyes rolling into the back of his head. Still, he continued in draining her and he didn’t stop until he had every last drop…
Jasper looked Bella’s lifeless body over. Even with the knowledge of what was to come, he felt a sense of gloom. He reached over and brushed his lover’s hair from her eyes. “Breathtaking, even in death…” He whispered in admiration. He couldn’t take his eyes off her. Jasper took it upon himself to get Bella cleaned up and fully clothed.
He had her in an off-white country skirt, leather belt, denim shirt, and brown leather boots. He hated how quiet it was however. There was nothing coming off her end and it was enough to send him (as a vampire) chills. It had him so unnerved that he almost welcomed the pain she would be feeling here soon. At least he’d know she was still in there somewhere. Out of all the humans he’d turned over the years… Bella was the most sentimental of them all. He never knew it would affect him this way. But this girl… Had him heart and soul. And he’d give her just that.
Jasper got dressed then lay beside her. He wasn’t about to leave her. He’d plans of staying right here and for the entire three days. And he’d do whatever he could to take her pain away, even if that meant bringing it amongst himself. The vampire closed his eyes however as he picked up a trace of something else. He let out a miserable laugh.
“What do you want, Alice?”
It wasn’t just her scent that carried over but what was coming off her. She was livid and consumed in jealousy.
“What’ve you done…” She whispered in this heartbroken tone.
“What had to be done.”
“You’re wrong, Jazzy.”
“Stop calling me that and if I were you… I wouldn’t come any closer.” He warned.
“What has she done to you?”
Jasper curled his lip on this.
“You say that in such a negative light, when you haven’t a clue. Now leave and make certain I can NEVER find you.”
“You still love me.” She said with smile.
Jasper reared back and with this what the fuck expression.
“Love?!” He sneered.
“Love isn’t what comes to mind. The ONLY reason I’m not ending you, right here, right now, is her. She needs me. So I plan on staying put. Do not test me, Alice. To do so would be a very BIG mistake.”
Alice inched her way into the room and Jasper held up a hand.
“Alice…” He warned and she came to a halt.
“Use that fucking vision bullshit of yours and tell me what will happen if you take ONE MORE STEP!”
“If you’re talking about Victoria and Laurent… That’s already been taken care of.”
This had her looking to Jasper in utter astonishment.
“They’re dead?!” Something he was sensing had him regarding Alice in bewilderment.
She nodded and Jasper sat up on this.
“Wait… THAT WAS YOUR DOING?!” He shouted as he had thought it to be Edward’s.
“Look, I just came by to warn you. It won’t be long…”
“And what’s that?”
“Not to worry, Jasper. Your life will be spared, if I take Bella with me. She knows too much.”
“Knows too much?! She’s in the process of fucking turning!”
“That doesn’t matter. We broke the rules. There are consequences.”
“Alice, what have you done?!”
Jasper recoiled as she went on to reveal the Volturi crest around her neck. He couldn’t believe what he was seeing. He wanted nothing more than to leap off that bed and take Alice’s head, the way she took Charlie Swan’s. But he knew he couldn’t leave Bella’s side, not for a second. That would leave her vulnerable and there was no telling what Alice had up those sleeves of hers. She was awfully brave showing up like this. That alone had the Major on edge, as she must’ve seen herself getting away with this, somehow. Jasper had to think like that of Alice and watch her every move.
“I can’t believe you stooped that low. Are you that determined to follow in Carlisle’s footsteps?”
Alice gathered this offended look and Jasper laughed.
“Hey, it’s none of my business, not anymore. If you want to spend the rest of your days choking on some Volturi cock, be my guest.”
Alice sneered at this and Jasper nodded.
“Right… would you prefer it if I said dick instead. Is that a little more classy?”
“Jasper, if Bella doesn’t come with me. Edward will expose himself. He didn’t believe me when I told him she was alive.”
“Is that supposed to convince me?”
Alice shook her head and went on to explain how Edward blamed himself for Bella’s death and had come to Aro, in hopes of a mercy killing. When the vampire king wouldn’t give him that, Alice picked up a vision of Edward getting that death, one way or another. He figured exposing himself would do the trick. This had Jasper rolling in laughter.
“That certainly sounds like Edward, doesn’t it? I’m not getting my way so I’m going to throw the biggest tantrum, until I do. Spoiled little shit. That’s all he is and that’s all he’ll ever be. But then again… You know all about that, don’t you? Carlisle always favored you two. You and Edward have him wrapped around your little pinkies. So maybe HE should be the one coming to Edward’s rescue.”
“He’s our brother…”
“Brother? No brother of mine.”
“STOP TOUCHING HER LIKE THAT!” Alice shouted and Jasper followed her gaze.
He hadn’t realized he was caressing Bella’s waist. It was a thing of habit. But the way Alice reacted had him leaning in even closer and he sent her a menacing look as he continued.
“I can’t believe you’re going to let her ruin EVERYTHING! I MEAN LOOK AT HER!”
“And what about her?!” Jasper challenged.
“You could at least dress her in something a little more…”
“A LITTLE MORE WHAT?!” He spat as this had him thinking back to what Bella had said about Edward and Alice picking on her so much.
Alice shook her head and went on to dig in the closet.
“Alice…” Jasper warned as she had him fuming.
“Not to worry. We’ll find her something…”
“I want her just the way she is! So fuck off!”
“You know how I feel about that…” Alice said with a look of condemnation.
“Oh yeah… I fucking do. FUCKITY FUCK FUCK FUCK!!!” He taunted with a cruel grin.
Alice rolled her eyes.
“What have you done to yourself, Jazzy?”
Before Jasper could even blink, Alice was hovering over him. She had his wrists pinned up above his head and was moving about him in a sensual matter.
“We could put an end to all this. Let’s go back to the way things were, before we got married. We were happy, remember? Jazzy, you could have your family back…”
Alice went on to kiss him and Jasper was quick to reverse that pin. He caught Alice by surprise, as he had his hands wrapped around her throat and with his forehead to hers.
“FAMILY?! WHAT FAMILY?!” He roared and was squeezing the life out of her.
“Jasper…” She pleaded as her neck was starting to split.
“Bella thought of you like a sister and what did you do?! You went and killed her father. If that’s what you consider family… You can take that family and shove it right up that frigid ass of yours!”
“Jasper…” She implored once again and he let out another growl
“NO. YOU’RE GOING TO SHUT THE FUCK UP AND LISTEN TO WHAT I HAVE TO SAY, FOR ONCE!”
Jasper was so angry, he actual tears of blood streaming down his face, as he eyed his wife of forty-three years down. A woman he wanted dead, more than anything. But knew if he took that route, Aro would take him and the rest of the Whitlocks, including that of Bella out. Aro always had a hard-on when it came Alice and now that he finally had her in his grasp. It would be war if Jasper took his precious Alice Cullen out of the picture. That however… was pretty smart on Alice’s part. She knew he’d want her dead and the Volturi was the best possible insurance she could get.
“YOU THINK I DON’T GET IT?! YOU WERE LIVID AND FELT BETRAYED BY WHAT SHE’D DONE. BUT ALICE, I WAS JUST AS GUILTY. YET YOU CHOSE TO GET BACK AT HER AND BY KILLING THE ONE PERSON WE KNEW SHE CARED ABOUT MOST! THE ONE SHE WENT OUT AND BEYOND TO PROTECT! THE CHIEF WAS EVERYTHING TO BELLA AND HE THOUGHT THE WORLD OF YOU! YOU COLDHEARTED BIIITCCCH! YOU CAN PAINT ME AND BELLA AS THE VILLIANS ALL YOU WANT. BUT DARLIN’, YOU KNEW… FORTY-THREE YEARS. FORTY-THREE YEARS OF NOTHING, BUT LIES. AND I KNOW, WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT YOU SAW BELLA IN MY FUTURE, LONG BEFORE YOU AND I SAID OUR VOWS. YOU HAVEN’T A CLUE JUST HOW MUCH THAT PISSES ME OFF! SO WHAT’S IT LIKE, HUH?! KNOWING YOU’RE SO FAR GONE, THAT YOU CAN’T EVEN TRUST YOUR VISIONS. YOU SHOULD’VE STAYED IN THAT GODDAMN LOONEY BIN, WHERE YOU BELONGED, CRAZY LITTLE MALICE ALICE BRANDON!”
Jasper thought back to all the shit Edward and Alice pulled over the years and let out this hysteric laugh.
“YOU KNOW… IT’S A WONDER YOU AND EDWARD HAVEN’T FUCKED!”
Alice’s jaw dropped on this and Jasper smiled.
“Oh come on… don’t even deny it. If Edward had ordered you to suck his dick, you would’ve guzzled that shit down, like a virgin on prom night!”
Alice few off the bed and with Jasper in her hold. She slammed him up against the wall and Jasper let out a growl. Just as he was to say fuck it and take an arm or a leg, at least. As a personal FUCK YOU to the Volturi, she disappeared. Jasper narrowed his eyes and cranked his head towards the empty bed.
“OH SHIT!” He hollered and took off.
Alice was sent rolling about the pasture and right into a tree. She shot up and regarded Bella in downright shock.
The newborn didn’t utter a word. Her fiery eyes were glued to Alice and she was marching her way over. Alice backed away in a crablike walk and was shaking her head in fear.
“Bella, I… I’m so sorry.”
Alice feared for her life as she was able to see her future now and it was in Bella’s hand. Bella hunkered down then grabbed a fistful of Alice’s hair.
“Sorry…? You’re sorry?!” Bella sneered as she took Alice’s head and smashed it into the tree.
“SORRY?!” She rumbled directly after.
Alice broke out of her hold, appearing behind her. She grabbed Bella then flung her back, slamming her into the earth. Bella let out a painful groan as she landed on her back. The newborn broke into a fit of laughter as Alice took off directly after.
“You wanna play? We can play…” Bella closed her eyes and breathed in the air around her.
It wasn’t long before her eyes shot open again.
“Oh Alice, this is going to be sooo much fun.” She said before chasing after her.
Alice let out a grunt as Bella managed to catch up to her. She dove out of a tree and had the cold one pinned to the ground. Alice was doing her best to dodge Bella’s unyielding jabs. She’d forgotten just how strong a newborn could be. Then again, Bella wasn’t your typical newborn. She was a different breed of vampire and one of Jasper Whitlock’s making.
“Bella, this isn’t you.” She said as she managed to get the upper hand and had Bella beneath her grasp.
Bella brought her knee up and sent Alice flying.
“Don’t tell me what is or isn’t me. You don’t know shit.”
“Bella, we’re like sisters. Don’t do this.”
“Sisters?! You killed my father and had me believing that Jasper was YOUR true mate. You even gave me that sob story on how you spent YEARS waiting for him. And I believed you… So I did everything I could to ignore whatever I felt for Jasper. That’s how much you meant to me. I would’ve died before hurting you or Edward. But if I had known… I would’ve fucked your husband a long time ago and with a smile on my fucking face.”
Jasper had found them and just in time to hear what was said. He was somewhere between aroused, yet highly concerned. How was Bella already awake for one thing? Her emotions were all over the place and taking their toll on him. Jasper found it incredibly hard to focus, a rarity for him.
“That’s right. He was never yours. So what’s it like… knowing he would’ve jumped ship, if given the opportunity?! Part of me wishes you would’ve walked in that night. Just to see the look on your face. You see, Alice… I wanted him, in a baaad fucking way. And considering what all he told me, I could’ve had him. In fact, I was the one that turned HIM down. If I hadn’t… he would fucked me right there!”
Jasper wasn’t sure whether to grimace or to nod in full agreement. Bella reached to her temples however and let out a painful snarl.
“I’m going to hurt you, the way you hurt Jasper and my father. Let me guess, Charlie… He welcomed you in, with open arms. Because like always, he adored you and I’m sure you used that to your advantage. I imagine he was over the moon about your visit and like usual you put on that little smile of yours. He hadn’t a clue you were about to take his FUCKING HEAD!”
Just as she was to zip on over, Jasper appeared before her. He wanted nothing more than to let Bella at her, but Alice was Volturi now. That alone… was a death sentence. Bella gritted her teeth as Jasper held her back. Something he found to be a true struggle. He hadn’t dealt with newborns in a very long time.
“Bella…” He called in attempts of pushing that empathy of his.
Jasper narrowed his eyes however as Alice let out this earth shattering cry. Bella grew eerily still and her eyes never left Alice.
“BELLA! PLEASE!!!” Alice implored in such a way. One that had Jasper wondering what Bella was doing to her.
It wasn’t like Alice to coward down to anyone.
“You will feel their pain. Every ounce of what they felt. You will feel.” Bella thundered and Alice dropped to her knees and was begging for forgiveness.
Whatever this was… it was so intense that Jasper himself was feeling it and only because he was so in tune with Bella. Whatever Bella was feeling… she was directing ALL of it upon Alice. It was then he realized that Bella was somehow directing HIS empathy onto that of Alice. Everything he’d endured for the past forty-three years. Bella’s eyes started to roll back and her entire body was shaking.
“Bella…” Jasper whispered with concern.
There was so much pain, torment, and sadness. But she was pushing all of this onto that of Alice. Before long, Bella’s eyes, nose, mouth, and ears were bleeding.
“STOP!” Jasper pleaded.
He gave her a bit of a shake but still her eyes didn’t waver.
“BELLA DARLIN’, YOU GOTTA STOP WHATEVER THIS IS!”
Alice came to a crawl and her nails dug into the earth as she continued in her beseeching. Bella closed her eyes as the vision of what Alice had done to her father came to play. She gave a simple nod and Jasper’s jaw dropped as the right side of Alice’s ear exploded.
“HEY!” Jasper shouted in alarm as Bella passed out in his hold.
Jasper rushed into the hidden room and laid Bella down on one of the tables. He grabbed a bag of blood and ripped it open with his teeth. He went on to open her mouth and let the blood drip on down. “Come on, baby…” He whispered and propped her head up. Once he had that bag emptied he grabbed another. He was halfway through the bag when Bella shot up. She wrapped her arms around her gut and nearly fell off the table. Jasper was quick to brace her against him.
“IT BURNS!” She hollered and Jasper grimaced.
Bella wrapped her hand around her throat and like that of Jasper that day… Bella felt as though she was being boiled alive.
“What’s happening to me?!”
“Just give it a bit… It’ll pass.”
“Jasper…” She painfully groaned.
He had her lay down then plopped down beside her.
“Just look in my eyes…” He uttered.
“There you go.” He said whilst doing his best to hide the fact that he was taking the pain upon himself instead.
Bella’s eyes came to a close and he nodded amongst himself as he let it take its course.
Jasper lifted his head as he was leaning against one of the tanks.
“How you feelin’?” He questioned as she came to her feet.
Bella narrowed her eyes in misperception and was looking around.
“It’s loud… Everything feels so strange.”
He nodded in understanding. Jasper walked on over and cupped her chin.
“Hungry?” He questioned as to the fiery look in her eyes.
She nodded but looked to the blood bags in apprehension.
“It won’t have the same affect this time.” He assured as he retrieved another bag.
He handed it over and Bella frowned.
He raised his brows as Bella pierced her own snake-like fangs into the bag and drained it.
“Much better…” She whispered after and he smiled.
She nodded but was looking at him rather peculiarly. He grabbed another bag.
“Somethin’ on your mind, darlin’?”
“You smell good. Like really good…”
“Do I now?” He asked with a grin.
She nodded with her eyes locked to his but went on to drain that bag as well.
“So you’re exactly like me…” Jasper murmured in thought.
He wasn’t sure if she’d wake as a cold one or not.
“Not at all.”
Jasper took the empty bag from her hold then tossed it aside. He went on to really look her over. He went as far as to check out her fangs.
“Damn…” He murmured as just the sight of them was a turn on.
Then again everything about her was… He closed his eyes as he breathed her in.
“Hmmm…” He hummed behind a growl. When he opened his eyes they had that same flicker.
“Bella…” he whispered in such a way.
Bella latched on and was kissing him like there was no tomorrow. Jasper picked her up and had her legs wrapping around him.
“Fuck…” He growled as she ripped his shirt open and was kissing along his neck and chest, like the day she first kissed him.
With one shift motion Jasper tore through her panties. Bella already had his belt unfastened and was fishing for the goods. Jasper pressed her up against one of the walls.
“God damn…” He uttered once he was inside.
Jasper gathered this cocky grin.
“I hope you’re ready for a thorough fucking. No more holdin’ back, darlin’.” He said and went on to give her just that.
Bella caught him off-guard but in the best of ways. Jasper let out a moan as she had her fangs pierced into his neck and was feeding from him.
“Hmmm… Keep going, baby. Fuck…” He encouraged.
He couldn’t believe how much of a turn on that was. He thought back to that human girl -the one that had such an issue with blood. So much so, she played hooky in order to get out of giving blood at school. Now here she was… a vampire and his blood was running down the sides of her mouth. Something he found incredibly sexy. Jasper went on to lick her clean and this lead to some passionate kissing. He lost count of how many times she came. He himself had already come and he was on the verge, yet again. This was the one thing he’d been looking forward to. Filling her to the brim and not having to stop. That was one of the many beauties of being a vampire – you could keep going and going. Only Jasper swore that whatever breed of vampire they were now… Only heightened things. If anything, he preferred this over being a cold one, any given day of the week. His only concern? Not knowing what to expect. But he and Bella were about to find out, together.
(Be a good sport by leaving your comment/review or a simple ‘like’, if you dug the chapter. I have been questioned about this ending up as a crossover with Vampire Diaries or The Originals. Sorry but no. You’ll see why as the chapters progress. This is strictly a Twilight story with my own evil spin. Thanks!)
