This is based upon one shots about Jasper and Luna. Me and Veke started this. Along the way we've invited other writers we know to fill in the gaps in these storys from other points of view. We're looking for more writers. Feel free to message me for more info
When I stopped swimming I knew I was just off the coast of England. But where, I had no clue. I had been running from my anger, my sorrows, my grief. Alice...Gone...I was waiting for the moment that I would fall apart, but that never happened. It had been five years now. She never saw them coming, they had used the gaps in her ability to see and know. And the moment they lost their cover, it had been too late. She had been hunting on her own.
If it hadn't been for Marcus, we would never have known what had happened. I felt my anger grow, like a beast in my chest. It was growling and thirsty for revenge. My sweet Alice, my soul mate...The moment I had needed someone, she had appeared; my sweet little pixie with her amazing powers and her loving heart. I wondered off, looking back through memories, happy memories. The Volturi, and espescially Aro, where responsible. He had seen what she was capable of, and he had been the one who orchestrated it. She had been given the choice between dying or joining the Volturi. She had said no, and he had been furious. That's the only thing I was grateful for: she had not been in pain very long.
Marcus... He finally had broken free from Aro. He was the one that told us what had happened. And he was the one that truly understood how I felt. He still was grieving for Didyme. Although he had been under the influence off Chelsea, his feelings had never disappeared; they had been too strong.
After a day I had run away. My feelings, the feelings of my family, I had felt everything. Their sorrows, their grief, Bella's tortured feelings, and Edwards despair. I had to go, to save what was left of me. To do what Alice had always made me promise, to fight and never give up even when things weren’t looking that great. She had said that with great wisdom and the most beautiful smile on her face.
I started walking, and looking around, captured in my memories.
My dad finally had finished rebuilding our house. All this time we had lived in our tent. Although I've got to admit, it was a cozy place to be in. I was looking forward to having my room back. I would have to do some touching up. I smiled because of the ideas flashing through my head. Next week we would have a little party, a celebration of our victory and remembering the ones we have lost.
"Dad, I need to see the sea. It's calling me." My dad would understand, my mom and me had our little trips to the sea. Those were as she would call them, “our little escapes from every day’s normality”, although I would never had called her experiments normal. I got the thumbs-up and the “be careful”, and “watch out” and ... I gave him a hug and said I would be very careful. Ever since my abduction, Dad had changed a little.
I went outside, and took my time to think about my favorite spot and turned around. A second later, I stood at the cliff next to my favorite little beach. I loved coming here to watch the sea and feel the wind. I sat down and just looked. It was a cloudy day with a lot of wind.
Suddenly I saw something or someone moving. He came out of the sea. Strange, it was way too cold to go swimming now, and especially swimming with clothes on. I focused a bit better, and just at that moment, there was a sunbeam that touched his face. It was absolutely amazing; he was glowing in the light: the glow of a thousand little spacklings.
Suddenly I remembered something my dad once told me. It was the story about Siobhan, the beautiful vampire he had encountered on his last search trip. She had shown him how she looked like in the sun. It was exactly the same description. I also knew I was not allowed to speak about this with anyone. Otherwise Siobhan’s family and mine would be in great danger. Siobhan had been at our home, well tent, because she had found something my dad had been looking for. And every word I had heard about her had been true, the only downside was that it had been a cold, dark and rainy day.
I looked back at the tiny beach. He still was standing there. He looked so lost. What had happened to him? "Hello"..."Can I come closer?" I whispered because I also had been explained not to seek the attention of any vampire. But my whole being told me that it was a good thing to do. I felt so secure about this; it was funny. I have always had a good intuition about lots of things, but this feeling went straight to my soul. I just knew it was the right thing to do.
He looked up, surprised to see me here. And all I heard was a loud "WAIT!" I had only blinked once and he was gone. I decided to wait a few minutes, and if he hadn't returned within that time, I would just go home again.
How could I have missed her? I had been so overtaken by my emotions and memories that her whispered words had taken me off guard. I looked up and saw a beautiful face, and something in her eyes caught my attention. Although I should have run away just like that, there was something holding me here. I shouted, "WAIT!", and took off. I needed to feed first. It was my shortest hunt ever; I really wanted to go back.
I started running back. I suddenly realized that she had whispered, so she knew that I would hear her. How was that possible? And humans usually don't want to get close to me. How had she known, and why wasn't she scared? I ran faster and came to a stop just in front of her. She didn't even blink once, and just smiled at me.
"Hello, my name is Luna, Luna Lovergood" And at that moment, she looked me into the eyes and I could see right into her soul. All my feelings were overruled by this warm feeling that came from this girl. I even smiled a little to my own surprise. All that I felt coming from her was a warm feeling, like she was saying that everything would be all right. "Hello, Luna, I'm Jasper Hale." She smiled in response.
When I took his hand, I saw something in his eyes, like he had discovered a feeling he had lost long ago.
"Jasper, I need to be home before dark. We should be going." He smiled and burst into laughter.
I had finally found my soul mate, like my mom and dad had found each other. The vampire part would be a bit hard to take for Dad, but he would eventually like Jasper. I just knew that everything would work out just fine. And the future would be discussed, but not today. Now, I just wanted to hold his hand and feel more than happy.
So excited, I finally was going to meet Jaspers family. I've missed him so.
After our first encounter on my favorite cliff at the sea, he had stayed here for three weeks. Dad had a really hard time, but to my surprise, it wasn't the whole “Jasper being a vampire” that had made him upset.
Jasper had left Monday; he needed to go back home. It had been five years, and he had only called them once in a while. I had stood next to him and I had heard the joy in Esme's voice when he told her he was coming home. Carlisle came to the phone and asked him how he was. Jasper only told them that he was perfectly fine and that he would tell them more once he got home. After the phone call, he had made me promise that I would come over on Friday, so that I could meet his family. He had said that with so much love shining through his eyes. I had just given him a kiss and he understood.
While I had been packing my things, my dad had entered my beautiful new room. It had a blue color, just like the sky on a sunny day and some butterflies here and there. And on my ceiling I had redone the image that had been there for a couple of years. The only difference was that there were a lot more friends featured.
So when my dad came in with that thinking look on his face, I was a bit worried. How could he still have problems with Jasper being a vampire? Jasper had been the kindest guest my father could ever had dreamed of, and still it had not changed his way of seeing Jasper.
"Dad, what is it?"
He looked up and smiled a little. It was like he was searching for the right words. So I went to sit on my bed and wait.
"Luna ... My sweet little Luna. I'm not coping well with the fact that you've become such a big girl. And it happened right in front of me. The moment you walked in with Jasper it was so clear. You're a beautiful young woman just at the doorstep of the next chapter of her life. ..."
And there he stopped. I went over and hugged my dad. I had been so wrong. Jasper wasn't the problem. It was me. I looked into his eyes, his wet eyes and smiled a little. My dad is the best in the whole wide world, I thought to myself.
"Dad, you're the best dad around. I love you so much."
We looked at each other and I just knew that we understood.
And now I was in a plane for the very first time in my life on my way to Jasper. I smiled and fell asleep.
I was so excited. Today I would see Luna again; I had missed her so. When I finally had come home after five years everybody had been there. Esme's love just glowed around her. Carlisle had looked so proud, and the rest had been so happy for my return. Of course Emmett had been the usual pain in the butt. After the first five seconds he came up with a typical Emmett joke. Something about the fact that he could not believe it that I had gotten even whiter over the years. I had laughed and hugged everybody.
The trip home had been long, longer than I remembered. I had been grateful for the silence Edward and Bella gave me in the car. I just looked outside; this was the place I had been running from. It felt strange, there was still pain and grief, but I could manage it and give it a place. Instead I was happy to be back.
When we arrived home, everyone waited for me to enter first. Nothing had really changed much, only the flowers were different. I smelled Esme’s favorite flowers. I went upstairs and opened the door to what had been Alice's and my room. The color and furniture had been changed, deep, dark purple and black furniture. Where was had been the door in to Alice's walking closet there was just a wall. I loved it, it felt more like me, Jasper. I went back down again to Esme.
"Esme, thank you so much. It just feels so much like me. I love it."
She smiled and took my hand. We went over at sat down at the big table. I had been very careful of my thoughts of Luna. I wanted this to be a real surprise.
"I'm really happy to be home again, and I'm truly sorry for the past five years, but I just had to get away from here. And until three weeks ago, I had no clue what I was doing, I just knew I was running. All of that changed when I met Luna. I can't explain how and why this has happened, that's why I asked her to come over here on Friday, so she can meet you. And one more very, very important fact… Luna is human. Well, she's a wizard, but for the rest, she's human."
They all looked at me with surprised faces, all but Edward, of course. Just before I told them my mind had slipped a bit. Bella's face was one of curiosity. The room was filled with worries, happiness and Esme's bright love.
The moment I passed the gate, I saw him. He was even more beautiful; the smile on his face lightened up everything surrounding him. I blushed a bit, I felt so warm inside. I walked over to him and just took his hands. I looked into his eyes and forgot about everything else. The only thing that made me come out of this beautiful moment was a loud cough, followed with a low laugh.
Jasper looked a bit annoyed and turned around. When he did I finally took the time to look at the people that had been standing right behind him. They looked...like vampires. Their beauty was beyond words. I recognized them all. Esme and Carlisle, both with a loving smile at their faces. Edward and Bella with Renesmee. I thought I saw some gratitude in Edwards’s eyes. And of course Rosalie and Emmett. Rosalie smiled a little and Emmett well…he had this huge smile on his face.
"Thanks, Emmett, you haven’t lost your perfect timing," said Jasper.
Esme came up to me and hugged me. She whispered, "Welcome, Luna, I'm so glad Jasper has found you." She smiled and went back to Carlisle. I felt loved and looked at Jasper.
"Thank you all for this warm welcoming. Jasper has told me so much about all of you."
Esme and Carlisle came over to me, "We haven't heard a lot about you, but just by seeing what you've done for Jasper and the love that floats between you two, makes us very thankful, and I'm sure that we'll get to know you better. Welcome, Luna,” said Carlisle
I smiled and hooked my arms into theirs as we walked outside. I just knew that everything would be fine, and that I had stepped into a new chapter of my life.
