Fic - Haunted  
Title: Haunted
Prompt: 46 – ghost
Characters/Pairings: Edward/Bella, Jacob
Word Count: 185
Rating/Warnings: PG, warnings for possible spoilers for the third book.
Summary: His presence haunts her, even though he is far away.
A/N: Written for eclecticnpink. I’m sorry there’s spoilers, but I can’t seem to separate the books in my head.

He’s always here. At least, to me he is. Like a ghost, invisible to sight, but haunting me every time I slow down and allow myself to think.

I try not to think. Edward is good for that – I can be with him and everything else around me just disappears. My thoughts, luckily not readable to him, calm, and I can simply be who I always am with him.

I think Jasper might suspect that Jake’s presence stays with me, but he’s good at fooling Edward, inundating him with various emotions so that he doesn’t see everything in his thoughts. I also think Jasper understands. He only gives me this look and leaves me alone to miss the man who became my sun. Even though I adore Edward, love him beyond everything, there is that ache left inside where Jake had been such a big part of my life.

At least Edward doesn’t sense him, the ghost of my feelings for Jacob. He’s immersed in wedding plans and worries over the plans to change me. He has no time for ghosts, especially those of werewolves.

Man, too bad that she can't postpone the wedding until she knows her own heart. And in the future, everytime that she sees children, she'll be reminded of what she gave up to be with Edward (and if she forgets, Rosalee will remind her).

Nodnod. Everything is a whirlwind, though, and she is so in love with Edward... but Jacob was part of her life, a very important part.

Can anyone truly decided where their mortality lies at only 18 years old? Can she truly understand what she's giving up?

That's okay... Jacob deserves better than her, anyway.... lol...

Very, very good trip into Bella's grief over the loss of Jacob in her life.

Thanks :D

I think my favorite part of this is Jasper's compassion. He's one of my favorites actually.

I like Jasper too. He really is very cool. <3

He struggles so hard to control himself, and he's so devastated by the whole birthday fiasco ... you can't help but feel for him.
