Summary: She asked me how I had done it. To tell the truth, I don’t even know.

Author's Notes: I’m so sorry that it took me so long to update. Please forgive me!

“Yeah, you’re right,” She admitted after a few moments of sitting in silence, “So… Tell me more.”




“Beg Pardon? How, what, exactly?” I questioned, confused.  


“How were you able to stand the wars? They were terribly bloody, weren’t they?”


“The second World War was horrible. I had made a few friends in the war. They didn’t know of my secret, but knew that I was something they weren’t. It was hard to resist all of that blood. The lust was too much for me at times. I’d flash one soldier a smile and… he’d follow me wherever I wanted. It was usually down into a trench. I’d drink from them. Soldiers on the enemy lines began to be frightened because they’d see the bite marks on their necks.


“It’s not one of my finest memories, I must confess. Drinking from them was so horrible, Bella. I loved the taste of their blood. I was a young vampire, though. Not even eighty years old, I don’t think. It nearly killed me to watch as those humans died because I had to be selfish.”


“You did what you had to do to survive, Jasper. It doesn’t matter to me,” Bella interjected smoothly.


“Thanks,” I mumbled, “But… When I came home from Germany the thirst was unquenchable. I took prostitutes behind dumpsters and… killed them. I drank from anyone – and I do mean anyone – who was vulnerable enough. The fear that came from them only made this hunger within me burn even deeper and brighter. Sometimes, even after feeding from someone, I was still ravenous. It may have been the adrenaline in them that made me hunger for more.”


I shook my head to clear those terrible images from my head. I hated to think about what I did and how I did it.


“I’m not going to hold anything against you. Trust me. I’m beginning to understand…” Bella’s voice trailed off and I figured it was okay to begin speaking again. Wave after wave of sympathy rolled off of her and struck me hard.


“I traveled around a lot, trying to fend off this feeling. I tested myself; seeing how long I could go without human blood. I fed off of animal blood back then, too. Just… it wasn’t even in my daily diet sometimes. Human blood is addicting. And I just couldn’t get enough. No matter how hard I tried, I’d keep going back to it. And then….” I ran a hand through my hair. This was getting too much for me.


“And then what, Jasper?” Bella asked me softly. I closed my eyes and laid back on the rock, imaging the night as if it had just happened.


“She came,” I whispered.


“Who? Maria?” Bella asked anxiously. I felt her become nervous. For me, I suppose.
