<lj-cut text="Somewhere, a predator had caught up with its prey">Somewhere, a predator had caught up with its prey; Jasper could sense the chase coming to an end. Both of the creatures' beating hearts were more than audible, despite the fact that they were out of sight. Placing his hand on the small of Alice's back, he gave her a small smile before glancing surreptitiously at Bella. Edward was worried for good reason: even well-fed, Bella could end up in danger thanks to her seemingly bad luck.
"So, everybody up for some fun?" he asked with a grin."

"Oh," Bella let out quietly, as she watched Alice. She took an involuntary step backward, a reflex she didn't even realise she'd done until she found herself two paces behind Edward.

It was somewhat like a car crash. She found herself not able to look away, although she was revolted by what she saw. This was. Weird. And going to change things.

And then the smell of blood hit her, wafting by on a passing breeze, and she was on the ground before she knew it.

Watching Alice proudly, Jasper almost didn't notice the change in the emotions surrounding him. Bella's shock and disgust cut through Rosalie's annoyance and the others' pleasure. Turning his gaze reluctantly from Alice, he realized Bella had collapsed. Restraining the reflex to help a damsel in distress, he glanced questioningly at Edward, not sure if his brother still wanted him away from his human love.

Edward's eyes kept flicking back and forwards between Bella and Alice. When Bella backed away, Edward moved to tell Alice to stop, realising how scared Bella must have been. He stopped and turned suddenly as she fell to the ground. He quickly ran to her side and lifted her into his lap, calling for Jasper to ask Alice to stop.

"Bella? Bella?" He stroked her cheek gently, trying to wake her up. If this didn't work, he'd have to shake her.

Bella could feel Edward's cool hand seeping through the heat of her cheek as she struggled through the black that was engulfing her.

Her eyes fluttered open gently, erratically, and she struggled to get herself into a sitting position.

At Alice's side in a second, Jasper carefully got Alice's attention. A vampire feeding, even if she was his mate, was something to be wary of.
"Alice, love, time for a break," he told her, holding his breath. The smell of blood was starting to fill the small area. For him, at least.
14th-Nov-2007 04:47 am (UTC)
Even though Alice considered herself to be pretty well in control of her blood lust, it took her a moment to snap out of it.

At first she let out something sounding like a snarl, but she quickly realized who it was and gave her head a little shake. "Jasper, what is--" But then she saw the small form of Bella on the ground and a very worried Edward leaning over her.

"Oh no..." Her eyes went from Bella to the doe, now dead on the ground and staining the earth with blood. Pushing the carcass away she stood up, licking the blood from her lips. "Well that didn't go as well as expected. Good thing we opted for the deer and not the grizzlies."

Despite the situation, Alice remained calm. She had faith in Bella. Someone had to, and after all, the human had made her decision perfectly clear.

Edward breathed a sigh of relief when Bella opened her eyes, and pulled her gently into his arms. He looked over his shoulder to where Jasper and a slightly concerned Alice.
"This was a bad idea," he said, mainly to himself, but he knew everyone would have heard it. He stood up with Bella in his arms and began to walk out of the clearing.
16th-Nov-2007 07:21 pm (UTC)
Alice heard him quite clearly, and was displeased. She didn't want to walk over there and upset the two, but she did want to make her thoughts quite clear.

Edward, aren't you overreacting? At least ask her what she wants to do before you go carting her off as if you're Tarzan, she thought clearly in her mind. Besides, Bella has to get used to it sooner or later.

It wasn't her decision to make, and Alice knew that, but it also wasn't Edward's either.

With a sigh she entwined her fingers with Jaspers and leaned against him.
17th-Nov-2007 03:48 am (UTC)
Squeezing Alice's hand, Jasper debated whether or not to intervene. He knew Edward wouldn't like it, but Alice seemed unhappy, and Alice took precedent over Edward. "Let Bella rest for a few minutes before starting any arguments," he advised them.
18th-Nov-2007 06:27 am (UTC)
She would have made a joke, but really, she didn't feel up to it. "I know; I wouldn't want to start another fight. Especially after Bella was so upset when Rose and Edward fought. But..." Alice chose her words carefully. "I think Edward should give Bella a little more credit."

Suddenly, she laughed. "Jeez. I have to stop meddling. It's their choice." Alice tilted her head to the side thoughtfully. "Do you need to feed while we're here? We can go somewhere else, while Bella recovers."
18th-Nov-2007 06:32 am (UTC)
Bella shook her head a little, to clear the buzzing noise behind her ears, and gave a shaky grin, "I'm fine. I really am. It wasn't a reaction to Alice. It was a reaction to the blood, honestly. Who knows, maybe I'll be a vampire who is allergic to blood," she joked weakly.
19th-Nov-2007 12:11 pm (UTC)
Edward's face was hard as he gripped Bella safely in his arms. He wasn't totally convinced she had made a full recovery.

"You've seen all that there is to see, Bella," he said softly, whilst concentrating on blocking out Alice's thoughts.
19th-Nov-2007 04:27 pm (UTC)
Jasper shook his head; he understood that Edward was worried, but he also knew Alice was right. "Alice, love, your meddling helps, sometimes," he kissed her cheek. "Edward, just give Bella a chance to make up her own mind," he added to his brother.
'Isn't this what you wanted?' he asked mentally. 'For her to see the reality of being...one of us?'
19th-Nov-2007 11:56 pm (UTC)
Edward sighed and looked at Jasper. "I'd laugh at the irony of it all if I wasn't so worried about her," he thought.

"Do you want to stay?" he asked Bella softly.
21st-Nov-2007 04:03 am (UTC)
Bella nodded, weakly, vaguely, "I'm fine. I really am."

She pushed Edward away with one hand, not even bothering to try to move him, "Go and eat," she said, giving him a watery smile.
