Walking in to the house I spotted Alice, Rosalie, Emmet, Edward and two other pale people who I assumed were there adoptive parents.

"Clove, it's lovely to meet you my name is Esme, I'm Jasper's mother." A redish brown haired lady stated hugging me.

"Hello Clove, I'm Carlisle." A tall blonde man introduced before the room went silent.

"Are we ready?" Alice asked, breaking the silence asking Carlisle.

"I believe so." Carlisle stated, walking all of us to the living room, where Jasper pulled me to sit next to him.

"What we are about to tell you can't be shared with anyone." Rose started, sitting across from me in between Emmet and Carlisle.

"It's a very serious matter." Carlisle continued, looking at me as of though I would run.

"What can be so bad?" I let out with a chuckle, looking around at the stone faces.

"Clove, were not normal." Jasper responded, letting go of my hand.

"Normal?" I asked looking up at him, before he stood up.

"Human." He answered walking across the room, far from me.

"You're joking right?" I asked smiling, looking around, to see serious eyes.

"You're not joking." I replied to myself slowly starting to panic before I felt calmness come over me.

"What do you mean you're not human?" I countinued, wrapping my arms around myself.

"We're vampires." Edward stated, looking down at me from where he was standing.

"..vampires?" I questioned with raised eyebrows, which caused them to nod.

"So you expect me to believe that vampires of all things are real?" I breathed out with a laugh.

"Yes, we do." Carlisle spoke, looking at me through his gold eyes. I looked at all of them they all had gold eyes, all were pale and all were freezing cold, is that because they were..?

"Yes it is." Edward answered, how could he..? I was thinking that, did I say that out loud?

"Some of us have gifts, mine is to read people's thoughts." Edward stated, sitting down on the sofa.

"What else can you guys do?" I mumbled, looking up with fear evident in my eyes.

"We have superspeed and strength and our gifts to those who have them." Carlisle answered before continuing "you have no need to be afraid of us, Clove we won't hurt you."

"..what do you guys eat?" I questioned looking up at them, with seriousness.

"We drink the blood of animal's, we call ourselves vegetarians." Esme answered, offering me a small smile.

"Why did you guys tell me this?" I asked, looking up to lock eyes with Jasper.

"Remember when I asked you if you believed in soulmates?" Jasper questioned, and I nodded my head in response.

"Well vampires have mates, it's the one they were destined to be with forever, the one that was made for them, they're perfect match." Carlisle continued, grabbing Esmes hand.

"And that involves me because..?" I wondered, looking up at all the pale faces.

"You're Jasper's mate, it's why you feel a pull to him and it's why he feels like he needs to protect you." Carlisle answered, I started to feel panicked like I couldn't breathe.

"I'm sorry, I need some air." I stated before walking out of the house and sitting on the steps.

I sat out there for a good twenty minutes thinking, Jasper and I were made to be together? I'm not ready for this, and they are vampires!? I started to hypervenilate, panicking from being overwhelmed.

"Hey, hey Clove breathe." Jasper stated running towards my balled up figure on the steps.

"Hey, hey listen to me, breathe." He stated, reaching out for me before I flinched away.

I don't miss the look of hurt flash across his face, I couldn't help it I was scared, not of him of what he could do.

"Listen you don't have to be with me, you just need to know that no matter what I will always feel the need to protect you." Jasper stated, reaching his hand out for mine, I responded by putting my warm hand into his cold one.

"Jasper I want to be with you, it's just a lot to take in, and frankly I'm scared, not of you of what's gonna happen." I responded, while saying this I was pulled into Jasper's arms.

"So.. is there anything else I should know about you guys?" I questioned looking up at him.

"Well I have a gift I can read and manipulate emotions, Alice is clarvoyant and we sparkle." Jasper finished with a laugh, his hand coming to my waist pulling me closer to him.

"Is that why I feel so calm around you?" I asked, as I gripped Jasper's hand tightly in my own.

"Yes when I first saw you, I knew you were an anxious person and I knew I could help you darlin." Jasper answered, rubbing cirlces on my knuckles.

"And you sparkle?" I choked out with a laugh.

"Yes, yes we do." He stated looking down quite embarrassed. For awhile we just sat in a comfortable silence.

"Are you sure you wanna be with me?" Jasper questioned looking up at me with solemn eyes.

"As I said before and will say forever, you can't scare me away." I responded pulling him down into a kiss, his arms coming around my waist pulling me on his lap, facing him and my legs on either side of him.

My hands found they're way to the back of his head, pulling at his golden locks causing a moan to erupt from Jasper's throat.

The kiss from the beggining was very heated Jasper's hands finding they're own way to my hips pulling me as close down on him as possible.

Jasper was clearly dominant when it came to kissing, he was in control as he would bite my lip, and grip my hips so tight if he did any tighter they would bruise.

"We shouldn't do this, I could hurt you." Jasper stated, after breaking the kiss with our foreheads connected.

"When will we be able to do this?" I breathed out, still catching my breath from the mind-blowing makeout.

"When you're like me, darlin." Jasper answered his hand gripping my hips looser, before pecking my lips a few times.

"We should head inside." I stated, as Jasper continued giving me tiny pecks again but now everywhere but my lips.

Getting off Jasper's lap, I stood up and hand in hand we walked inside.
