Jasper and I have been together for a long time. Our entire family knows that the two of us are mates. But they also know that we are still waiting for our other mate.
It's a rare occurrence even in the vampire world, but occasionally there are vampires who have more than one mate. I know that Jasper and I have another mate.
I've seen her. For years, I've been waiting to have a vision that would tell me where she is, or even what she looks like. But I never have.
I can tell that Jasper is beginning to wonder if she had already died, and even I had begun to give up hope, until now.
We were all trying to figure out where we would be moving to now that our youth has become suspicious. We all turned to Esme. She hasn't chosen a place for us to live in decades so we thought that she could choose this time.
But just as we tell her that, I gasped. In my mind, I can see a girl. I can't make out anything particular about her features, all I can tell is that she has blonde hair, but not the normal dirty blonde that is so common. No, it looks silver, as though her hair is made out of moonlight, a gentle silvery color that could never be recreated using dyes.
I've seen her before, the mate that Jasper and I have been waiting for. But I've never seen anything around her, or even what she looks like. In fact, I still can't make out any of her features. But, I can see a sign next to her.
I've also seen this sign before, from the times where we have lived there. Our mate is in Forks, Washington. But how have I never seen her there before?
I can tell that the others want to know why I am acting like this, but I can't tell them. I'm still shocked that I finally know where my mate is that I can't even move.
Edward knows this, and so he explains for me, "Alice just saw where her and Jasper's mate lives."
Everyone looked at me to confirm and I nodded. "It's true. She's in Forks, Washington. I think she lives there now. Esme, I know that you were supposed to choose, but if you wouldn't mind -"
Esme quickly cut me off. "Of course we'll go to Forks. We already have the house there waiting for us and this is an excellent chance for you and Jasper to meet this mate that you have been waiting for."
Once this was decided, Jasper and I left the room to start packing. It would still take us several days to enroll in the high school there and get everything set up, but I knew that Jasper and I would do everything we could to speed the process along. After all, we had already been waiting for decades, we wanted to meet her as soon as possible.
