Alice and Jasper the Beginning
I was sitting at the bar waiting, again, it has been almost thirty years since I first saw Jasper in my first vision and I still haven't found him. I've been in this small town for two weeks. I think it might be time to move on and to look elsewhere.
"Can I get you something to drink, miss?" the bar tender asks, smiling at me. I have been sitting her for about three hours I might as well if I want to keep up the human charade.
"Coming right up." He says still smiling, and leaves the counter returning quickly. "Here you go miss, enjoy. "
"Thank you," I say politely and pretend to take a sip of the water. That's when the door opens. It was him, Jasper, I thought I would never find him. Excited, I hop down from the bar stool and approach him. "You have kept me waiting a long time." I say smiling up at him.
He ducks his head and says. "I'm sorry, ma'am." I offer him my hand, he hesitates at first, but he takes it and I lead him out the door.
"Would you like to go talk somewhere more private." I ask
Sure. He says still uncertain.
I have a vision. I'm seeing he is going to reject me; he doesn't want me. I put my head down and look at the ground, embarrassed and heart-broken. I couldn't bear hearing him say that to me in person. "Goodbye, Jasper." I say and run away as fast as I can.
I've been running for what seems like hours, when I find a small cave and crawl inside. That's when I break down completely "I'm such an idiot!!!" I yell and tearless sobs begin rise to the top of my chest.
About an hour later I hear someone enter the cave. It's Jasper, but it doesn't comfort me, he still doesn't want to be with me, seeing him makes it hurt much more.
"Hey, are you ok?" He says.
I look up at him with sad eyes and sigh. "Jasper, I know you don't love me, you might as well just go." These word were harder to say than I thought they would be and I know I'm on the verge of crying again.
"I'm sorry I hurt you."
"I was stupid anyway, to ever think you'd ever would want me." I sigh again. "I wasted twenty-eight years of my life for nothing."
"It's not your fault, ma'am, please don't feel sad." He says. Suddenly I feel extremely calm. He is obviously using his gift to control emotions.
I look into his dark red eyes, this action just makes me feel sad again; knowing I can never have him. I stand up and walk deeper into the cave, he follows after me. "I don't know why, but I don't want you to be upset," he says in a sad tone.
"I don't know why I ever thought that we would ever be together, I mean I should have known tha-
" he turns me around so I would be facing him, grabs my face with both hands and kisses me passionately and I kiss him back. Now I know for sure we will be together for the rest of eternity.
