Who: Jasper & OTA
What: Jasper decides to take a break from all the stress in the Cullen house.
Where: The woods surrounding the Cullen house.
When: July 7th
Status: Incomplete

As always, Edward and Rosalie were fighting. It was nothing new; those two tended to contradict each other on an almost daily basis. But today, the ensuing emotions were affecting Jasper more than normal. Perhaps it was the mixture of everyday stress and tension combined with Bella's impending turning, not to mention the wedding.
But Alice was happy, as she almost always was, so Jasper wasn't overly taxed by all the negative emotions. Even so, he'd wandered (or ran, depending on how human you were) to the woods used to conceal the Cullens' house. The only emotions to bother him here came from simple animals, so they were easily ignored, letting him mull over his own experience as a newborn.

(Sorry, guys, I don't know how to do an LJ cut.)

Edward slowed his running when he saw Jasper ahead. He could hear his troubled thoughts, and felt bad for the environment Rosalie and he had created in the garage.

His body still stiff with anger, Edward spoke softly. "I didn't intend for that to happen. I'm sorry."

Jasper lppked up when he sensed Edward. He smiled ruefully at his brother's apology.
"It's not your fault," he replied. "Every time there's a wedding everyone starts to get stressed out."

"That's true," Edward sighed, crouching to sit under a tree. "But this isn't like other weddings."

He rubbed his temples in frustration. "I don't know what to do, Jasper. I'm going in circles."

Jasper nodded sympathetically and fell into a sitting position beside the other vampire. "You knew it wouldn't be easy when you started this," Jasper reminded him. "I know Rosalie will kill me for saying this, but this isn't about her. It's about you and Bella, and what you two really, truly want." Jasper paused, then chuckled at himself. "I sound like a girl," he mocked himself. "But it's true. If Bella really wants this, then you shouldn't force her away."

"I guess it doesn't help when everyone has conflicting opinions. I feel like I should be making everyone happy."

Edward started breaking a large stick into tiny pieces, occupying his mind. "How do you feel about all this?"

Jasper shook his head; Edward worried about others too much sometimes.
"Me?" he questioned. "I think you should do it," he stated firmly. "So long has you can live with the decision," he added as an afterthought.

"Bella and I tried living apart once, and I don't think that went too well," Edward sighed, an empty feeling creeping up inside of him. "I couldn't live without her again."

"I just think Bella doesn't quite understand what it's going to be like...to be a vampire."
15th-Oct-2007 02:57 am (UTC)
"Have you ever shown her what it's like to be a vampire?" Jasper asked. "After all, I'm sure she's only seen the good side: immortality, and the love of her life for ever. Literally. She probalby doesn't completely realize how...strong the bloodlust can be. Maybe on a hunting trip is in order?"
15th-Oct-2007 03:01 am (UTC)
"I've never taken her hunting before because I thought it would be too dangerous. I could have lost control when I was...in the moment, so to speak."

Edward remembered what it was like after he killed Victoria. The look of complete terror on Bella's face. It made him shudder.

"I know it would be quite educational to take on her on hunt with us, but I don't know if I am ready for that," he said, slowly. "Besides. Allowing her to watch us hunt is one thing. When she is a newborn, and in a crowd of humans is completely different. There is no way to prepare her for that."

"That's true. I don't think anyone could until they're actually a vampire," Jasper ran his hand through his hair. "Not a real hunt, exactly. Especially as Rosalie probably won't be invited," he joked. "Just to show her what happens. We'll go well fed, so we don't lose control and go after her. It'll be like fighting those damned werewolves."

"Alright," Edward agreed. "I'll ask Bella if she wants to come with us."

He threw the broken pieces of stick away and dusted off his hands. "It's hard to imagine Bella any different to what she is now."
15th-Oct-2007 03:22 am (UTC)
"Well, think about it," Jasper watched the sticks fly through the air. "Are you really that much different than when you were a human?"
15th-Oct-2007 03:23 am (UTC)
Edward looked at his brother, and rolled his eyes. "Do I remember what I was like when I was human?"
15th-Oct-2007 03:33 am (UTC)
"You know what I mean," Jasper snapped at his brother, though he couldn't help the grin that spread on his face. Finally, Edward wasn't being so broody. "Do you really think that you changed that much? Personality-wise, anyway."
15th-Oct-2007 03:39 am (UTC)
"I don't know. I was still young. I don't think I had experienced a lot. I was still...becoming 'Edward', if that makes any sense." Edward didn't know if he was talking sense at all. His mind was thinking about too many things at once.
