<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."

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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?'

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.

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.

Edward muttered something under his breath and set her down gently on the ground.

"Alice, are you ok to watch her?"
21st-Nov-2007 04:30 am (UTC)
"Of course," she said, careful to keep her expression neutral. "Take as long as you need."

Alice made her way over to Bella, sitting down near her and laying down in the grass. Fresh blood was in her body and her skin looked a little less pale. That, coupled with being out in nature, was a wonderful feeling.

Suddenly she just wanted to be alone with Jasper. Although she loved time with her family, she also needed their own special time, free of complications.

Jasper smiled as he tuned into Alice's feelings. Watching her studiously, he muttered to Edward.
"Don't take too long, all right?"
