Random Rita’s Read Along – Angel Series Part 1!

ROB ATTACK

To quote Alice: “It’s tiiiime!”

There’s been talk about a read along for Drotuno’s Angel Series for a while and, now that those of us who were readin’ her Gravity Series have all finished it, I thought I’d try to organize a bit better for Angel!

So, this is my idea…

ROB ATTACK

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5134656/1/Angel-Series-1-Broken-Angel

The FIRST in the Angel series. This is my version of New Moon and beyond if Edward didn’t return for 2 years. Jacob is NOT the sweet boy everyone thinks he is. What kind of Bella did Edward come back to? How does she react? AU/OOC-somewhat…Future LEMONS! Rated M for a reason. R&R!

Step 1: Report to the startin’ line by lettin’ me know you’re in!

Step 2: Start readin’ and at least leave a review for Deb where you finish for the day!

Step 3: Come back here and report how many chapters you’ve read and what your thoughts are, so far!

ROB ATTACK

Evenin’, ladies!

So, there I was quietly decompressin’ from finishin’ Drotuno’s Gravity Series when my inbox suddenly exploded with new stories…most of which were one shots!

These were my favorites of the ones I’ve read so far!

ROB ATTACKhttps://www.fanfiction.net/s/12377326/1/Seven-Minutes-In-Heaven

Seven minutes in the closet with Edward changes Bella’s life in ways she could have never imagined. A story written for Cullen Cousin for FAGE 9.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Angst – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 10 – Words: 19,939 – Reviews: 131 – Favs: 70 – Follows: 100 – Published: Feb 22 – Status: Complete – id: 12377326

At sixteen, Edward is a year younger than Bella in this fic…younger but very much wiser!

Edward stood up and looked around the circle, expecting someone to stop him from following Bella into the laundry closet. He knew that there was nothing in there. Just some shelves with towels and laundry soap. And, of course, now there was a girl; a pretty girl waiting for her seven minutes of heaven. Whatever the heck that was.

“Timers on,” Mike yelled from the outside of the door.

Edward stepped back as he felt Bella come closer. “Uh, what exactly are we supposed to be doing?” he asked awkwardly.

He heard her move, but it wasn’t until he felt her tugging on his pants that he realized what she was doing.

“Stop that,” he hissed.

“Five minutes,” Mike shouted through the door.

“Don’t worry. I can finish you in three,” she said.

“I said stop,” he repeated, feeling a bit confused and perhaps violated.

“What’s your problem?” she hissed back, her laidback tone suddenly gone.

“Why would you. . . do that? You don’t know me?”

“It’s the name of the game, Edward.”

Edward didn’t need to know Bella to know what he said next was the truth. “You’re better than that.”

“How would you know? You don’t even know me.” Bella snapped back.

“I just do. You deserve more,” he replied.

She laughed but there was no humor in her tone. She didn’t believe him. Edward could tell that whoever she was or whatever she’d been through, someone had convinced her she was no better than giving head to her friend’s brother at a party.

“Please stand up.”

He could hear her sigh as she made her way off the floor. He tugged his pants back up and buttoned them.

“One minute,” Mike shouted through the door.

“Well then, what do I deserve, Edward?”

Edward didn’t know what came over him. He had kissed one girl before, and was by no means an expert, but he couldn’t help himself as he leaned into her and pressed his lips to hers. His kiss was delicate and respectful but filled with just enough desire that she’d feel desired.

When he pulled back, there was complete silence for three seconds until Mike opened the door and declared obnoxiously, “Time’s up.”

Light filled the small room and he looked back to see Bella standing there staring at him. Her hand was up by her face, her fingers touching her lips. She was slightly flushed and Edward wondered how he’d missed just how beautiful she was. He gave her a small shy smile, and as soon as she saw it, she dropped her hand.

“Whatever,” she hissed as she stormed out of the closet. She grabbed a coat off the couch and bolted up the stairs.

Edward is relentless in his pursuit of Bella until she falls hard for him. Unfortunately, family circumstances tear him away and it’s years later before she sees him again!

Gone was the unsure boy and in his place stood a very confident man. He owned the stage and his appeal, winking at the girls in the front row as he sang. His hair was still the same messy mop of copper it had always been but the rest of him had gone through a major transformation. His arms, toned and strong, supported several tattoos, although Bella couldn’t really tell what of from her seat, and his chest, hidden by a tight black t-shirt with a low dipping V, was just as taught. His face was more mature and angular, a strong chin and defined cheekbones. His eyes held knowledge that Bella could only guess where it came from.

How can Bella reconcile this Edward with the sweet boy she knew back in Forks? Just how much has he changed?

You’ll have to read to find out LOL!

ROB ATTACKhttps://www.fanfiction.net/s/12363612/1/Perdition

If your life was all you had to give your beloved, how could you not give it? I had to do it to save him.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Crime/Suspense – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 2 – Words: 3,094 – Reviews: 112 – Favs: 112 – Follows: 238 – Updated: Feb 20 – Published: Feb 13 – id: 12363612

Perdition:

1-

(a) utter destruction

(b) loss

2-

(a) eternal damnation

(b) hell

Okay, only two chapters up so far but I’ve already got my seat belt tightened as far as it will  go!

Your life is not ever your own, not truly. It’s the living that suffer when you die, when you’re finally free of the binds you can’t break in life. As long as your heart beats in your chest you have obligations to others, never having the chance to be your own self. It was a harsh lesson I’d been forced to learn at the tender age of seventeen, before I was mature enough to have that knowledge forced upon me. Renée had done what she could to protect me, going so far as to leave my father and flee with me, but in the end it turned out it was all for nothing.

Not one person that I can see down there loved her, or cared for her, not in so many years. I was the only person she could count on, but that hadn’t been enough. If I had known that declining an offer of marriage would result in her death, I would have accepted, regardless of who was offering. I would have done anything for her, including giving up my very freedom. If only I’d known the truth in time to save my mother’s life.

The author promises a HEA but it’s gonna be a bumpy road to get there…I’m takin’ her at her word!

ROB ATTACKhttps://www.fanfiction.net/s/12376142/1/derivation

(noun) derivation. the obtaining of something from a source or origin. “All it takes is a touch,” Bella says – and that is how she reveals that there is more to her than meets the eye. Little did she realize that she also had a derivation, one that she could scarcely predict. A Twilight Re-Telling.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – [Edward, Bella] Aro – Chapters: 4 – Words: 28,096 – Reviews: 96 – Favs: 76 – Follows: 136 – Updated: 11h ago – Published: Feb 21 – id: 12376142

Ooooh, ladies! I have saved the best for last *wicked evil grin!* And don’t be fooled by the banner…this is not a Bella/Aro love story!

As far as Bella knows, Aro is the great-uncle she’s been corresponding with for years…she has no idea he’s a vampire but vampires are certainly in her immediate future!

Bella looks up, startled, and meets eyes that are pitch-black eyes that are so dilated that they are all pupil with a very, very faint ring of burnished gold around the edge of the iris. The eyes are set into a breathtakingly lovely face of angular bones beneath taut pale skin, heavy brows, and a full-mouth pulled back to reveal an upper row of slick white teeth. She pulls her focus back, taking in the tall, lanky form currently doing his best to bruise her with his long fingers digging into her flesh. Bronze hair. The frustrated one. The beautiful one.

Or he might have been if he didn’t look like he legitimately wanted to murder her at the moment.

Edward growls again, moving faster than a flash to curl his hand around Bella’s throat and physically lift her from the ground by several inches. She scrambles, heels banging against the lockers, breath coming in panic-fueled gasps as Edward snarls, “Mine!”

Bella cringes, hands coming up to pull at his immobile fingers in the futile hope of loosening his steely grip –

All it takes is a touch.

. . . .Kill, drink, killkillkill. . . So sweet, that blood, I must taste it. . . .It’s mine. . . .Killdrinktastebitebitebite. . . she’s mine. . . .

Edward’s mind is chaos, a cornucopia of noise and scent and emotions strong enough to still the beat of her heart – and his thoughts are black, both with intent and with self-loathing even as he contemplates what her blood might taste like, and how much he could drink before anyone could stop him, and what it would feel like to be wrapped up in all that human-like warmth, inside and outside and-

Bella has never felt a mind like that before, so dynamic and complex and absolutely twisted around itself. In that split-second of contact, she feels like her nerves are set alight, like her brain simply can’t process so much at once. Warmth drips down from her nose a moment after she begins clawing at Edward’s hands and his intent to harm her intensifies – but so too does her resolve to survive.

And Bella does something that she has never done before.

She presses her hands against the one at her throat, digging her nails into diamond-hard skin even as he darts forward – in for the kill – and she pushes her mind forward like a wrecking ball.

She thinks only one thing: NO.

Instantly, Edward releases her, clutching at his head with a cry of pain. Bella crumples on the floor, gasping and grasping at her over-warm throat, watching as Rosalie Hale and Emmett Cullen flash toward a still-cringing Edward almost faster than they eye can see, hooking arms around Edward’s lean body and literally dragging him away, blurring with their speed. She blinks at the place where Edward was for a long moment before turning wide eyes to Alice Cullen and Jasper Hale.

They stare at each other – silent.

Even in a situation like this, though, Bella’s mind is lightning quick. Her conclusion is unerring because there is only one logical explanation, especially with all the emphasis on blood over the last few moments. Jasper couldn’t stay because she was bleeding. Edward wanted to drink her blood. Amber eyes. Pale skin. Strength. Speed. 

Preternatural beauty, if that even counted at this point.

“Vampire,” she breathes, wiping at the blood from her nose. Her head aches something fierce, spitting and hissing like an overloaded power outlet.

Needless to say, I DROP EVERYTHING when this story updates!

Now, it’s your turn to share your favorite fics!

Happy Friday, y’all!

ROB ATTACK

Okay okay okay!

So, since I didn’t even get half way through Fire & Ice AND because Rob was a major distraction this week *cough*understatement*cough,* no additional readin’ got done, except for some WIP updates!

Oh, but what WIPs they are!

You know, I try my best to ignore new stories until they complete but these would not be quiet and here’s why!

ROB ATTACK

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12333336/1/Treasured-Heart

The last time they met, they were both left with scars. Fifteen years later, they find themselves working together to find an elusive shipwreck and the treasure that it holds. AU/AH/M

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Drama – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 4 – Words: 12,584 – Reviews: 129 – Favs: 114 – Follows: 200 – Updated: Feb 12 – Published: Jan 22 – id: 12333336

When an old friend of Bella’s dad shows up with his bored son in tow, she takes the opportunity to bug the young man for some answers.

“So, why are you guys here?”

He rolled his eyes as he told me that his dad had found some information on a shipwreck that his dad and mine had been obsessed with in their younger years.

My interest was immediately peaked. I loved doing research about shipwrecks, and it was even more cool getting to dive down and see the remains of them.

“Which ship?” I asked him.

“The Sirène,” he said, and my jaw dropped.

“No way! Your dad found it?”

Edward shrugged a shoulder.

“He thinks he has.”

“That’s so cool,” I said, and it to me it was, but Edward didn’t seem all that interested.

“I guess,” he said, crossing his arms over his chest and staring at his dad.

“The Sirène went missing in the 1700’s from France. Supposedly, it was on its way back to France from the British Virgin Islands. Rumor has it that there was a heart shaped brooch in its coffers that is known as the Treasured Heart. The heart is a huge ruby with emeralds and dia—”

“Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know,” he said, with an eye roll. “I’ve heard it all before.”

“You don’t believe it?”

“It’s a rumor, kid. You can’t believe everything you hear,” he said in a harsh tone, and I shrunk back in my chair, letting out a huff. I was sixteen, not six, and I wasn’t stupid.

“Whatever,” I muttered before picking up one of the old magazines that dad had left lying on the outdoor table, and I began to read about the best fishing spots in the southern United States, doing my best to ignore the cute jerk next to me.

Well, Bella and the cute jerk are gonna have to get along for a few months LOL!

Three days later, Dad and I were boarding Breaking Dawn, the boat, well yacht really, owned by Carlisle. And boy, was it a beauty.

It was a hundred foot yacht, with four large staterooms, four and a half bathrooms, a huge living room, kitchen, and large decks.

Esme, Edward’s mom, greeted me on the deck with a hug, which I returned, before she told Edward to show him where I’d be staying, and he begrudgingly agreed.

As I followed him down the stairs below deck, I noticed that he had a scowl on his face.

“Why didn’t you just stay at home?” I asked him as he showed me to the cabin I’d be staying in.

“My folks want me here, so here I am,” he said bitterly, and I rolled my eyes at his surly tone. It sounded like he’d rather be anywhere else than here, and I figured he’d rather spend his summer on a beach somewhere, partying with other frat boys because there was no way that Edward Cullen wasn’t a frat boy.

The trip ends in tragedy…not gonna give that away, and it’s fifteen years before Bella and Edward come face-to-face again!

This is one adventure I’m unable to resist…how about you?

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12347672/1/A-Killer-Idea

Someone is killing low life scum who have escaped justice in Seattle, but do we really care? Bella Swan doesn’t, in fact she’d probably open a GoFundMe so he doesn’t run out of weapons. Bella and Edward are detectives. She is outspoken with her hate of scum, Edward is more balanced and rational and thinks the justice system will prevail.

You wouldn’t expect a fic about a serial killer to be funny but there’s an entertwinin’ story line about Bella’s desperate desire for a baby…preferably without the burden of an annoyin’ husband! And, with a little help from her best friend, she get’s her wish!

I walked to my full length mirror and turned side on.

Was I showing?

I laughed at myself.

Somehow I doubted something the size of a pinhead was going to be detectable from the outside for quite a long time. But that was good, too. Save me having to make any announcements and get transferred to the inevitable desk job for the rest of the pregnancy.

And we had a killer to catch.

Really. I thought we didn’t care if he ever got apprehended? I thought we agreed a serial killer who wiped off the universe men who raped and tortured and killed women and children was an asset and we should do some real police work, like catching little old ladies who jaywalk?

“I just want to finish this one case, then when I am at home with my beautiful little baby, we can keep up with the trial and hopefully, see some slimy lawyer get him off on a technicality.”

You just want to arrest him yourself so you can ‘forget’ to read him his rights.

“Hey. Pregnancy brain is a real thing. I may well forget and oopsie daisy there goes the whole case. Tossed out of court. What a pity.”

I smiled to myself and caressed the skin on my abdomen.

I wonder if my beautiful little son or daughter knows how much I love him or her already?

Of course it does. You have loved this baby long before it was conceived in that cold little test tube. . . .why you and Edward couldn’t have just done it the old fashioned way. . . .

“Shut it. As I have explained a hundred times. Edward and I are friends. Best friends. And we work together. Any hanky panky would have risked all that. And we have to work together, forever.

How awkward would that have been if we’d had sex and he’d become deluded and thought it meant more and then we had to have ‘the talk’ and then he resented me, or hated that I rejected him, or . . . . What if he’d wanted to be part of the baby’s upbringing? This is MY baby.

Oooh, someone’s bein’ selfish! We’ll see how Edward feels about fatherhood soon enough!

Witness to a terrible crime, Bella’s life has never been in more danger than it is now. Memories are scattered and Bella has trouble remembering what happened, that is until someone helps her try to remember. Violence, guns and sexy criminals, what could go wrong? Rated M.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Crime/Romance – Chapters: 13 – Words: 36,650 – Reviews: 262 – Favs: 143 – Follows: 312 – Updated: Feb 5 – Published: Apr 29, 2016 – id: 11920878

While this WIP seems to update rather slowly, it’s still absolutely worth at least puttin’ on alert until it completes!

Lost at night in a bad part of Phoenix, Bella witnesses a mob hit and runs for her life!

I press myself back against the wall and start making my way to the exit, if I could just get out of here unnoticed and alive that would be great, I could get help. Just as I make it to end of the alley someone shouts “Hey!” and a thwack hits the wall above my head.

“Kill her!” Another shouts.

I don’t even turn back to them, no I run as fast as my short legs can carry me. More pings and thwacks sound out around me as shots are misfired.

I run across another street, down another alley way, through two more vacant buildings, two empty lots, down anther street before I start to hear the sounds of civilization. The sounds of screeching tires behind me let’s me know they’ve found me.

Go, move it! I scream at myself as I push myself my hardest, my legs screaming at me in protest. Down one more alley way and I come running full speed out into traffic, the last thing I see is a bright light headed right for me before I’m swallowed in complete cold blackness.

While the bad bad guys want her dead, the good bad guys want her alive to tell them who killed their Don and his wife! So they kidnap her…for her own protection, of course!

“Edward, she doesn’t remember.” Jasper says.

I look up at Jasper, Emmett, and then Edward, he doesn’t look happy. “What do you mean, she doesn’t remember?” Edward asks.

“She was hit by a car running from them, man. She got hit hard and suffered a concussion, they weren’t even sure she’d wake up. More than likely, it’s the concussion and her own form of protection that’s not allowing her to remember, even if she wants to.” Jasper explains.

“Fuck!” Edward kicks the chair that Jasper was sitting in a moment ago, the force and sound of the chair falling makes me jumpy.

Emmett smacks Edward on the arm, “Not in front of the kid, man. She’s freaked out enough as it is.”

“She doesn’t look like a fucking kid.” Edward says, eyeing me, making me squirm. Now it’s Jaspers turn to smack his other arm.

“We have to help her remember otherwise we’ll never get what we need.” Jasper says.

They’re talking as if I’m not even in the room yet they’re all staring at me. It’s quite uncomfortable.

“We also need to keep her safe.” Emmett adds.

Edward crosses his arms over his chest, “Which means you’re not allowed to leave here.”

My jaw drops, “You can’t be serious. You’re what, kidnapping me?” I ask, shocked.

“She still doesn’t look like a kid.” Edward mumbles and Jasper and Emmett smacks him both.

“Unfortunately, Isabella, we can’t let you leave at all, for your own safety.” Jasper says.

What can I say…it’s Mobward, which makes it pretty much an automatic read LOL!

Feel free to share your own automatic reads!

Happy Friday, y’all!

Evenin’, ladies!

Normally, I wouldn’t expect every single story in a series to just get better and better but I’m here to testify that Drotuno proves an exception to that rule!

Book 4, Fire & Ice, is certainly shapin’ up to be a worthy conclusion to the fuckhawt, action packed stories Deb has created with her Gravity Series!

FOURTH in the Gravity Series. When one of their own is threatened, the crew will have to travel halfway around the globe to get them back. What they find will have them racing against the odds to save more than just one life. AH E/B Series.

Carlisle and Esme are in Moscow on Twi Tech business but Edward’s gut is churnin’ with trepidation so he gets Alice to hack into their hotel security/camera system only to discover his hunch was all too right!

“You gotta make a move, Dad,” I sang in a warning. “Go out shooting, or back up the stairs and we’ll find you another way, but you gotta move!” 

At this point, I didn’t give a fuck if he was arrested. At least then, they’d be safe, but the police were, so far, still absent.  

His eyes looked up at the camera. “You promised me, Edward. Now…where are my targets?” he asked, handing the one bag he was carrying to Esme and pulling his Glock back out. To Esme, he stated, “You’re gonna run straight. Stay low, keep running.” 

My nostrils flared with my temper, but I answered him. “From the door…ten o’clock and two o’clock. Aim at a downward angle; they’re below you in the bay. Esme, you’ve got no choice but to run straight out and to the left behind the box truck. 

On my mark…” I waited until the three men were in the perfect spot. “In three, two, one…go, go, go!” 

The stairwell door flew open, and my father shot twice, causing two men to fall to the floor. The laundry workers scattered, giving Esme enough coverage to get behind the box truck. However, despite my father’s flawless aim and lightning reflexes, the third man in the bay rounded his weapon on him.

“What is that?” Bella asked, but before we could see, Esme’s cry rang out.

“Stun gun,” Mickey said, rushing to my side. “They’re taking him.”

“Fuck me,” I growled, gripping my hair, because the two men coming in from the lobby were already on the task of grabbing up my father.

One thing’s for sure…hell fire is about to rain down on the bad guys who dared lay a hand on Carlisle Cullen!

“Everyone, on me.” When all work came to a halt and all eyes were on me, I said, “This isn’t fucking over. I need a crew. And I need you all sharp.”

“Kid, we’re all in,” Alec stated, his face as fierce as I’d ever seen it. “Carlisle wouldn’t leave us, and we won’t leave him.

You just tell us what you need.”

I sniffed, took a deep breath, and said, “Alice, I need a flight plan. It needs to be detailed, plotted with every fuel stop along the way. Jasper, Alec, I need the cargo hold of the chopper loaded up with everything we’ve got and supplies for a black-ops mission. Rose…remote access to you guys – laptops, satellite phones, tablets. I need access to info immediately and twenty-four-seven once we’re in the air.”

“Who are you taking?” she asked.

“I don’t know yet. I want to know what Eleazar thinks, but I’m pretty fucking sure that we’ll have to head all the way to Moscow and start from fucking scratch,” I said, locking gazes with my wife. “I can’t ask you to stay. I can see by your face you won’t fucking listen.”

She smirked, but it fell quickly. “You’re gonna need me, Jasper, Mickey, Alec, and Emmett.”

“Not to mention Kurt. Apparently, he’s fluent,” I said, eyeing the man in question.

“You never asked,” he snorted, shrugging a shoulder. “But yeah. My grandmother was Russian; she taught me.”

Nodding that I’d heard him, I looked back to Bella. “This is a hostage thing for you, isn’t it?”

“Yes,” she whispered, looking worried that I’d deny her, but in all reality, I’d need her.

However, leaving our kids behind was my biggest concern. But I also knew my wife, and having this situation so blatantly thrown in her face would bring back a shit-ton of bad memories, and with it, possible panic attacks. She loved my father as her own, and she wouldn’t just stay behind. She’d be useless at Aunt Kate’s, but with me, she’d be a sharp as hell force to contend with.

“There will be rules, sweetness.” I raised an eyebrow at her, knowing she’d understand. She’d have to listen to every damn word I had to say if she came along, but her ability to read info, her attention to detail, and her perfect fucking aim would be needed on this trip.

She nodded, but didn’t argue.

What if blood weren’t the only scent of Bella’s that Edward smelled? How do you handle sitting next to someone who arouses your dormant sexual energy? A completed work.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Fantasy – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 41 – Words: 101,467 – Reviews: 1,201 – Favs: 1,083 – Follows: 627 – Updated: Aug 24, 2011 – Published: Dec 29, 2009 – Status: Complete – id: 5621687

For those of you who haven’t read anything by Mrs. Cope, you’re in for a real treat!

I didn’t know what to do. I bent over my notebook, writing her name over and over, trying to think of something else, anything else that would ease the swelling in my pants and get her scent out of my mind.

“Hey. Edward.” Jasper stood at the door of the biology lab, sending me a quick nod of recognition. I saw his pupils dilate for a brief instant as he picked up on my pathetic arousal. “Still can’t talk to her without a stiffie?”

If it had been anyone else, I’d probably have been pissed, but Jasper said it all without judgment or ridicule. I could feel comfort rolling towards me suffused with relaxation and the icy muzzle of sexual revulsion that accompanied kissing your grandmother.

“Thanks, Jazz. Yeah, I’m still having ‘problems’.” I looked down at my crotch as my erection began to fizzle. “I can’t get her out of my mind. I don’t know what it is about her that just bothers me so.”

“Look, Edward. I know it’s har- I mean, tough. She’s pretty. She smells good. It’s been what, like a hundred years? You just gotta get a hold of yourself.” He stood across the desk from me as I gathered my things. “I mean, like literally, dude. Grab the reins.”

“Jasper, I’m trying,” I said, feeling as if I weren’t really trying, just whining. “I just don’t know what I’m going to do.”

Have you jerked off? Today? Like, recently?

“Jazz. What do you think.” He should know by now. Any more trips to the bathroom and people would begin to think I had a permanent case of the runs. I stood up, brushing the front of my t-shirt and pants back into smoothness.

We just worry about you, man.

My head flew up as my eyes met his. “Oh, Jesus God! You didn’t tell Alice, did you?” He looked down at his feet; his sheepish grin was as plain as an admission.

“Christ, Jasper! She’s my sister, for crying out loud!” I grabbed my books from the table, any vestiges of my erection sapped away in shame.

“Edward,” he started. “I didn’t want…”

“He didn’t tell me, stupid, I saw it.” Alice waited by the door, hand on hip with that impish smirk on her face. “And it isn’t like the is the first time, either. I have so many visions of you pulling on your dick I think I’m hiccupping.”

“Look. Just. Leave. Me. Alone.” I knew I couldn’t blush, and I’d never heard of a vampire dying of embarrassment, but I knew there was a first time for everything. I fished my keys out of my pocket. “Just take the damn car home. I’m going to walk.” I slammed the keys on the lab table and ran out the door at top speed.

Pretty sure Blue Edward refers to poor Edward’s blue balls *gigglesnort!*

At last, Edward has his Bella. Why, then, is he experiencing bouts of high anxiety and seeing red? This AU story follows the canon pairings with some unexpected twists from Edward’s point of view. Sequel to Blue Edward.

So, finally gettin’ laid only brought a whole ‘nother set of problems for poor Edward!

The crimson veil ripened, blossoming around me, around her; if she touched me… Images of violence and lust danced in my head. “Bella, don’t… please…”

The plea broke her concentration, returning her gaze to my face. The red veil colored the chocolate of her eyes, and I saw in her the newborn she would become: strong, robust, unbreakable. Panting broke from my lips, hoarse and guttural, and I felt unable to catch my breath, choking. I knew her skin was tender, her flesh weak, but my need perverted my perception, driving me to near insanity, pushing me to take her, fuck her, ram my body into her. 

“Edward?” she whispered, now sitting in alarm. My thoughts flew into chaos as my mind flashed through the surrounding woods. Alice’s thoughts drifted into my head, her anxiousness for our return… Carlisle read a medical journal debating the cause of seizures in certain types of…The man hiking through the woods thought his fiancé was wrong about the disbanded campground… ‘Don’t go there. I can smell them from here. They’re having sex.’ *disgust* ‘Her scent is strong, but his is as heated as wildfire’… My body was rigid and my eyes unblinking, all senses filled with Bella, her smell, her sex, her eyes holding mine. I was everywhere, I was only here, I danced on the head of a pin, I flew through the air. 

“Edward? You’re scaring me,” she said, apprehension growing in her expression. She knelt before me, leaning to touch me. Oh, I was doomed, doomed.

There is an HEA but it’s one helluva ride to get there LOL!

Now, what fics held you spellbound this week?

Happy Friday, y’all!

Evenin’, ladies!

Well, I might not have gotten as far into the 3rd episode of Drotuno’s Gravity Series as I’d planned but at least I got to the chapter where Bella completely loses her shit on an old flame of Edward’s who is currently their priority client  LOL!

ROB ATTACK

3rd in the Gravity Series. Carlisle brings a client to Gravity for protection, but there is more to this famous female singer than meets the eye. Bella, Edward, and crew not only will have to keep her safe but figure out who is threatening her. AH/Sequel

A fiery, raging ire started to build quickly through me. I’d warned Kyra to back off, but she still wasn’t listening, and this time, she’d gone too far. She was fucking touching him. And it wasn’t just the fact that she was touching him; it was where she was touching him. The Cullen crest. My tattoo. The one he’d gotten to remind himself that family came first, and from the look on his face, she was completely violating it.

“This is new, Edward,” Kyra crooned.

Strong arms tried to reach for me, but my training kicked into overdrive. There wasn’t any stopping me. I dodged Edward’s grasp, spinning when he tried again, and swung hard at Kyra’s face. Not giving her a chance to catch her breath, I landed on top of her, causing sawdust to plume up around us. Before the bitch could bleed from the split lip I’d just given her, my gun was out of the small of my back and in her face.

I pulled the hammer back slowly, letting the satisfying sound of the metallic click to echo around her.

“Bella…” Edward called, but I couldn’t stop myself if I tried.

“I could kill you, you know,” I told her, my voice low as I wrapped a hand around her throat. “You won’t talk to him, you won’t look at him, and you certainly won’t fucking touch him. It’s one thing to not listen to my warnings, but it’s another to talk to my child like that. We’re done here. You’re no longer our responsibility. Period. You can fucking take your chances with FBI. And trust me when I tell you…that doesn’t always work,” I sneered, gripping her throat tighter.

The woodshed’s doorway filled up with people – crew, FBI, and Kyra’s people. I shook my head at them all.

Gator started for me, but Edward stopped him.

“Come near me, and I pull the fucking trigger. I’m not done here,” I warned them, turning back to her. “Yes, he turned you down,” I whispered so that only she could hear me, “and yes, he totally makes you feel safe. I get that, really, I do, but this wasn’t the way to go about it. He’s mine. You need closure? That’s all the closure you’re getting. You wanted safety? Well, that safety is just about to walk away.”

“Edward, please!” she begged, though it came out a little jagged, because my fingers squeezed just a little too tight. “I need him,” she rasped, her voice barely a whisper as she gazed up at me.

I pulled my hand back and let it fly, smacking hard across her face, but before I could do it again, I was pulled up and off of her, securely wrapped up in unforgiving arms.

“So do I! And you’re going to get him killed!” I said through gritted teeth, kicking at my captor. 

Of course, now both Kay and Zveka are waaaay ahead of me but I intend to make it up tomorrow…the good Lord willin’ and the creek don’t dry!

After the disastrous birthday party that injured her arm, Bella can see that Edward is pulling away from her. Tired of staying away while Edward distances himself, Bella decides to start the conversation a day earlier than he had planned. But will it change anything? New Moon AU. COMPLETE.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Hurt/Comfort – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 32 – Words: 167,413 – Reviews: 1,665 – Favs: 1,168 – Follows: 1,232 – Updated: Apr 15, 2016 – Published: Sep 2, 2015 – Status: Complete – id: 11483103

Anyone who has had a bad break up with their high school boyfriend and still had to see him every day afterwards will relate to Bella’s plight!

Throughout the rest of the week, I can tell the news is slowly spreading about our break up. Luckily, most people leave me alone and very few people ask me about it. I think I have my friends to thank for that. Some boy in history started asking me about why we broke up and Mike jumped in and told the kid to shut up and mind his own business. I was surprised and gave him a relieved smile. Mike winked back and gave me a covert thumbs up. 

It was really tough telling them, but I’m glad I didn’t wait. I’ve had their support and friendship to get me through this week and every day with them has been less uncomfortable. It is nice to know that I have good friends who have my back when I need them. 

It makes me realize that I’ve kind of neglected those relationships. 

Edward and I were in our own little bubble most of the time and I would want to spend all my extra time with him. Now that it is no longer an option, it makes me happy to know that I still have other people to spend time with, if I want. I don’t have to sit around and feel sorry for myself. 

I’m not quite out of that stage yet.

This is where I knew we were in for a different Bella than the broken ghost of a girl from canon New Moon!

“We need to find you a rebound,” Jessica declares suddenly.

“Woah,” I exclaim, putting my hand up. “That is not happening.

Like ever.”

“Ever? Come on, Bella! That is what helped me get over Mike. I just found someone new to flirt with. It’s fun! It doesn’t have to be serious.”

“I have realized I’m not a casual kind of person.” I confess. “And anyway, boys are gross,” I tease, trying to joke.

“You think Edward is gross?” Jessica asks incredulously.

“No.” He’s so far from gross, it’s not even funny. But he is not a boy. “I meant other boys. They’re gross.”

“What are you? Nine? They don’t have cooties,” Jessica laughs.

“When they are no longer gross, I’ll let you know.” She huffs like she’s frustrated, but she’s also smiling. I’m obviously joking. Kind of.

Jessica leaves us to head to her own classroom, but Angela and I have this next one together. . . with Edward. I pause outside the classroom and take a deep breath before pushing the door open.

Edward is already in his desk, the one directly in front of mine.

“We’ve all got your back,” Angela says. “You know that, right?”

“I know.” I look at her and grab her hand for a second, giving it a grateful squeeze.

I walk up the aisle to my seat and try not to look at him, but of course I fail.

I meet his eyes and he smiles and mouths, “Gross.” I smack my hand over my face in embarrassment, trying to cover my sudden flaming blush. He smiles bigger when he sees my reaction.

We really, really need to stop talking about him at school.

No idea what possessed me to open the link last night but it turned into a marathon read lastin’ well into today until I finished all 32 chapters!

My apologies to the author for readin’ so fast I didn’t have a chance to leave any comments *BAD RITA!*

Edward is a Bi sexual tattoo artist that just wants to find the perfect person but he is starting to realized that is not as easy as it seems. Until one night at work in they walked.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Bella, Edward, Jasper – Chapters: 7 – Words: 14,762 – Reviews: 264 – Favs: 417 – Follows: 638 – Updated: 4h ago – Published: Jan 9, 2014 – id: 10007002

When I make it to the counter, the sexy as sin couple is still here and it looks like they are fighting over something. Looking left to Rose, I see her just shaking her head and walking to the back. I place my smirk on my lips then knock on the countertop with my knuckles to get their attention.

When they both look up at me with lust in their hungry eyes, my forced smirk turns into a real smile. Now here is the tricky part of every meeting for me since I can’t speak. I raise my hands and sign, “Hi, can I help you guys with something?”

By some miracle, both Bella and Jasper know sign language and Bella explains the back piece she wants!

What neither of them realize is that Edward is NOT deaf and hears Bella askin’ Jasper if he as interested in Edward as much as she is!

“Sorry that I have waited until now to bring it up, but the way you were looking at him told me just how much you wanted it again and I knew you would never do it or bring it up on your own. Now I love you and I want you to sit and think about what I just said. We both want to mount this guy and if he is only into you then fine, but I get to watch!”

After Bella finishes, I am speechless and it has nothing to do with the fact that I can’t talk. Fuck! I could have both? Please, Jesus, I am a good man and I really want this.

While poly is not my usual genre of choice, this is a seriously hot, down and dirty, raunchy, funny as hell fic I could not resist!

A warnin’ up front…this author hasn’t completed any of her seven fics YET but, havin’ read what she’s written so far, I’m prepared to have a little faith that she will finish them as promised, despite her hectic RL!

So, what fics have had your attention this week?

The sequel to Blood & Glory: Gravity’s business is booming, but what happens when a ghost from the past shows up, taking the only thing that matters? Can the team work together to fix it, or will they rip apart at the seams? Rated M E/B

Everyone knows you NEVER get between a mama bear and her cub! Well, when someone has the audacity to take Edward and Bella’s daughter hostage, they have noooo idea the lengths her family will go to to get her back or the hell about to rain down upon them!

The crowd outside started to scream and run from the activity. I felt, rather than heard, Edward’s chopper blades as he swooped closer for Jasper and Eleazar. I could see Wes trying to guide innocent people out through the front doors as we got closer and closer to the exit, which was getting tougher to see with all the smoke inside the station.

I walked calmly out the doors, Walter’s gun still at my side, and I gave Wes a minute shake of my head when he flinched at the sight of me. I needed them to let me go. I needed to get to Bethy, even if it was being held against my will. And I needed to face the wrath of Walter and Lilith when they finally realized that they didn’t have a fucking dime.

Wes’ face held worry and anger, but it also held a vow that he would find me. His head spun when screeching tires pulled to a halt in front of the three of us. The side door of the old tan minivan slammed open, and Walter rushed me inside to the backseat.

“Get in and get down,” he ordered, looking over his shoulder as Rusty barreled his way out the front doors and dove in the van.

Edward’s chopper swung low and dangerous over the scattering crowd that was heading away from fire alarms and gunshots, the side doors open, with Eleazar hanging out one side and Jasper another.

A woman screamed in the middle of the street when a camo wearing man wrapped her hair around his hand and pointed a gun to her temple, yelling something at a nearby Fed. The D.O.A. member never stood a chance, because Jasper never missed. One resounding pop, and the man’s head snapped back. He hit the asphalt, causing the woman to stumble forward.

“Who the fuck are they?” Lilith gasped, her mouth hanging wide as she dove into the car beside me.

“Doesn’t matter,” Walter growled, slamming the minivan’s side door. “Go, Kurt. . . Drive! They won’t shoot while this bitch is in this car. She’s worth too much.”

He grabbed my ponytail, jerking it roughly and practically spitting in my face. “You’ll pay for this shit, Isabella,” he sneered, holding up a syringe. “You just couldn’t do as you were told, could you?” he asked, slamming the needle into my arm and depressing the plunger.

My world blurred completely out of focus into nothingness.

That was just the tiniest bit of the incredible action Deb gives us in Book 2 but it’s enough for you to see why I’m so invested in this story…oh, and this, too!

The nurse behind the counter looked like someone had stunned her, and my eyebrows shot up high when I realized it was my husband that had her completely mesmerized. It was something I was used to, because he was absolutely gorgeous, without a doubt. Add the little sweet clone on his lap, and he created fodder for fantasizing females everywhere. I understood it. In fact, I couldn’t blame them. 

The beautiful part was that all the credit went to Edward. He was completely and utterly ignorant to every stare, every gasp, every bite on a bottom lip, every roaming eye that took in his entire being, and every groan that he had the ability to bring out in women. His whole world was me and the little chatterbox on his lap, and anything outside of that just wasn’t important to him. 

That being said, that didn’t mean that these women didn’t. . . try. I’d seen waitresses slip him phone numbers, cashiers drop every penny in their hand so they could show off their cleavage, and don’t get me started on what his mere presence could do when he worked out at a hotel gym – something I’d almost put an end to the last time we took a trip. One poor girl just about fell off the fucking treadmill as he lifted weights in the corner. He was innocently deadly, and that just made him all the more attractive.

*Swoon…THUD!*

Edward Cullen’s father and brother are very unhappy campers!

“This is bullshit!”

“Emmett Michael Cullen, you watch your mouth.”

Edward hung his head as he watched his older brother visibly struggle to keep his anger in check over his father’s announcement that the family would be leaving Seattle for a tiny dot on the map called, Forks.

“That little shit fucks up and I lose everything I’ve worked for? You guys can go wherever you want, but I’m not leaving.” The force of Emmett’s chair hitting the wall as he stormed from the table and out of the room shook the walls of the substantial house.

“That went well.” Esme Cullen glared at her husband before reaching for her ever present wine glass.

“Es, don’t start.” Her husband warned.

Edward lifted his eyes to see his parents glaring at each other.

“Please don’t fight.”

Both of his parent’s turned to him as if just realizing he was there.

“This is all my fault. Please don’t yell at each other.”

Edward felt his father’s glare as his mother moved from her seat to put a comforting hand on her youngest son’s back.

Carlisle opened his mouth to reiterate that indeed their current predicament was Edward’s fault, but thought better of it when he looked into the regretful eyes of his son and the lines of worry and sadness on his wife’s beautiful face.

“Yes, well, this family needs to move forward. Forks will give us all a fresh start. I need to go to the hospital and start preparing my patients’ files for transfer.” Carlisle grabbed his keys from the side table and followed in the wake of his older son’s prior departure.

“Honey. . . ”

“No. Mom, why don’t you just send me away? Send me to grandma in Chicago or military school? Why disrupt the whole family? I was the one who fucked up. I should be the one to leave.”

Esme tamped down the need to reproach him for his language as she looked into the sad green eyes of her baby, the son she’d failed.

“Baby, everything will be fine. We’ll put this behind us. You’ll see.”

Edward nodded at her assurances, but in his head, he was already planning the garden he would help her grow, the extra chores he would do to make things up to his brother and then, well, he didn’t know how to fix things with his father, but he’d keep trying.

Awww, poor baby…what could he have possibly done that was so bad? And how will Bella make it better?

There were two things that Bella knew for certain about Edward Cullen: first, he needed a friend and she was going to do everything in her power to be a friend to him and second, there was a dark cloud hanging over the Cullen family that she feared if not dispelled soon, would damage the family forever.

I’ve been a fan of Christa’s since she posted her first one shot back in 2011 and, if she keeps writin’ like this, I’m prepared to follow her for years to come…join me!!!

Only one complete fic this week that began as a one-shot for the Mine to Mark Contest,  receivin’ 1st place Public vote, 2nd place Judge’s Vote, Most Tantalizing Lemon, Most Seductive Edward, and Hottest Dirty Talk!

When a mysterious stranger moves in next door to Bella in the middle of the night, he awakens something inside her that she didn’t even realize she yearned for. One shot written for the Mine To Mark contest.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 4 – Words: 39,434 – Reviews: 180 – Favs: 534 – Follows: 455 – Updated: Jan 19 – Published: Jan 16, 2013 – Status: Complete – id: 8913601

They Meet…They Mate…They Marry…They Multiply! How predictable, you might say, and you might actually be right if it wasn’t for love-tart’s  way of bringin’ Edward and Bella to life for us in a way that will send the stock in ShamWows through the roof!

I made my way to my bedroom, pondering the arrival of the stranger.

My mind was so sufficiently distracted that it took me a moment to realize what I was seeing. My bedroom window was open; I had left it like that because it was such a warm and breezy night. It’s not like I worried about someone climbing in through my window; the crime rate in our tiny town of Forks, WA was slim to none. So when it was nice out I usually left my windows open.

Oh, dear God. He the most beautiful thing I think I’d ever seen.

His jaw was strong, and my eyes dropped to fasten on his Adam’s apple as he swallowed from a bottle of water. He lowered the bottle and licked his lips and I swear I actually whimpered. Those lips were dark pink, soft and perfect, and even with the distance separating us I could see that they were unbelievably kissable.

I was wrong about his hair. It wasn’t regular, medium, brown, but rather a rich coppery hue. It was tousled and sticking up all over, and I suddenly ached for the soft brush of it against my fingertips, my throat, the sensitive skin of my thighs.

I felt slightly creepy, just watching him when he was so unaware of my presence, but I literally could not stop. My eyes were drawn to him, refusing to look away. They followed him closely, and I felt them widen when he reached back with one hand and tugged his shirt over his head.

Holy shit.

His body was literally a work of art. Not only was it toned and tight, broad-shouldered with slim hips, but it was also a canvas for some amazing tattoos. There were lines of script on the left side of his ribcage, and a stunning flock of ravens across his back. Colorful Koi swam down his left arm amid lush blue waters and green jungle plants. Some sort of coat of arms covered his outer right bicep.

He bent over to retrieve something and I admired the long, strong line of his back; two dimples were visible just above the edge of his jeans.

I sidestepped quickly when he turned to fully face the window. I calmed my racing heart after a few seconds and peeked around the edge of the window. I frowned. His light was now turned off, the bedroom in darkness.

It’s not long before they meet and sparks really start to fly on their first date when Bella notices his tongue is pierced!

“I really want to kiss you right now,” he said huskily.

“Please,” I breathed, aching for the touch of his lips.

“I can’t,” he replied. “Not here. I’ve barely held myself in check all night long. You’re so fucking beautiful, and if I kiss you now I won’t be able to stop.”

I took a deep, unsteady breath. God, he smelled amazing, so warm and clean and manly. The scent was just radiating off of him and invading all of my senses.

I watched as he glanced around sharply, seeming to look for something.

“What is it?” I whispered.

He looked down into my face.

“I don’t want anyone watching this,” he replied, just before his mouth covered mine.

Oh, sweet Jesus, the man could kiss. His lips were unbelievably soft and warm and they just molded to mine so perfectly. I moaned, opening my mouth and gratefully accepting the sinuous plunge of his tongue. I encountered his piercing and was immediately enthralled.

He held still, letting me explore him. I brushed the little silver ball with my tongue and was startled – yet searingly aroused – by the groan that he emitted. So I did it again and was rewarded the same way. I grew bolder, slowly licking up the length of his tongue before flicking the piercing more firmly.

Edward snapped. His hips thrust against me and his fingers slid up my throat to curve around the back of my neck. He held me still, trapped between him and the car door, while he kissed me almost savagely. It was in-fucking-credible. Never had I been so completely possessed by a man’s mouth. I gloried in it. I was fucking born to be kissed by Edward, to be owned by him like this.

And this is just chapter one *THUD!* Read, ladies…I’m tellin’ you to READ!!!

One night, successful businesswoman, Bella, stumbles upon Edward stitching up his bloodied face in the office. Edward is unfriendly and rude and people at Cullen Consulting Inc don’t trust him. Soon, Bella becomes obsessed with figuring out what he is hiding from them all and when she finds out, she gets drawn into a world of danger, in which one wrong move will lead to death.

“Mr. Masen appears to have a relatively normal life, if not a bit of a reclusive one. His parents are both dead and doesn’t have any other family on record. It doesn’t appear that he has many friends or really any associates he spends much time with. He has however, been spotted multiple times eating at Bite, the restaurant downtown that is owned by one of the Brigado sons.”

Bella looked at the picture of him entering the restaurant.

“After talking with a chatty hostess, it seems that he always eats alone and always orders the same thing. He is served by the same waiter every time as well,” Mr. Marcus said slowly.

Bella was not necessarily sure what that meant, but Mr. Marcus was looking at her meaningfully.

“And this one?” she asked, flipping to the next picture.

It was Edward reaching into the back of his waistband of a suit.

“Masen appears to be the owner of several guns, which he carries regularly on his person. And while that isn’t necessarily illegal, it doesn’t appear as if those guns were legally purchased, nor does he actually have a permit to conceal and carry,” Marcus said as Bella stared at the picture. 

“When were these taken?” Bella asked, moving to close the folder again.

“Last night.”

Mr. Marcus was looking at her and he didn’t seem concerned about his pending job application. He kind of shook his head to himself.

“Mr. Masen is one interesting man.”

Bella could only nod in response.

Interesting…and potentially dangerous.

Tryin’ to figure out what Edward is up to and why brings Bella closer and closer to an answer she’s might not be able to live with…literally!

Edward leveled her with an angry glare. “You do not need to be around this, Swan.”

Bella looked down at her fingers as Edward continued to breathe shallowly.

“What is this, exactly?” she asked quietly.

Edward closed his eyes and rested his head against the stall behind him. He stayed like that for an undeterminable amount of time – so long that Bella was sure he was going to ignore her existence.

“This,” he finally intoned, “is what Carlisle does not know he asks of me.”

Bella was silent in response. She did not understand what he meant, yet was hardly in the position to be asking more questions, especially given the fact that he had answered one already. She didn’t want him to continue to try and send her away and so, she remained quiet, determining that her presence there was more important than answers at the moment. Without a word, Edward pushed up the sleeve of his already unbuttoned white dress shirt. His hands shook as he pushed it past his elbow and let it drop to his lap for Bella to examine.

There were angry red dots right along certain parts of his veins.

They were tiny, yet the recently dried blood around them left Bella to conclude that these were recent.

He seemed resigned to her presence and resigned to his fate. He rested his head against the stall, his eyes closed as he let his arms loosely encircled his raised knees. Bella guessed he was determined to wait out the lasting effects of whatever had been injected into his system, and she’d be damned if she let him do it alone.

This is a slow burn, people…but soooo worth it!

Ten years ago four people were forced from their world into his. He learned that he could live another way but not until it was time. He never thought that he’d be liberated from high school purgatory by the brightest star in his eternal life.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Drama – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 13 – Words: 142,635 – Reviews: 235 – Favs: 114 – Follows: 180 – Updated: 8h ago – Published: Aug 19, 2016 – id: 12109038

Oh, Reneeeee! Here’s that HP/Twilight crossover I told you about a couple weeks ago LOL!

“Mrs. Weasley, Mrs. Weasley, may I please have some paper and ink?” a young girl, about ten years old, asked while she skipped into an odd-looking kitchen.

“Of course, my sweet Isabella. What do you need them for?” the aforementioned Mrs. Weasley asked as she pulled some parchment, ink, and a quill down from a shelf to put in front of her.

Isabella smiled a stunning smile for one so young. “I’m going to draw my Edward and his family.”

Mrs. Weasley nodded. “Well, okay then. We wouldn’t want you to stop drawing your Edward now, would we? You’ll be drawing his family too? How many pieces will you need?”

When her answer didn’t come immediately, she looked at Isabella to see her contemplating with her eyes closed and her finger tapping her lip.

“Hmmm, I’ll need eleven, please.”

Again, Mrs. Weasley nodded, took out her wand, and replicated eleven pieces of parchment; she then floated them to the table in front of the sweet girl.

It was well into the afternoon when Isabella had finished her drawings.

Mrs. Weasley saw them on the table and decided to look through them. Her eyes grew bigger and bigger when she came to the last few pictures. She turned to the owl sitting on the kitchen windowsill, quickly wrote a note on a piece of parchment, and tied it to his leg.

“To Dumbledore, Errol, quickly; this is important.”

Mrs. Weasley started on that day’s dinner after she had spread the drawings on the large table in the kitchen. She busied herself getting everything ready, or watching the pots simmering on the range, until she was distracted by a loud pop from outside. Seconds later, a tall man with a very long beard and half-moon spectacles tapped on the door frame.

“Albus! I’m so glad you could spare the time. Come in, come in.”

“What was the urgent message for, Molly?” he asked.

She nodded to the parchment laying on the table. “Take a look, Albus, and tell me what you see. Isabella has been drawing at least four times a week since her fifth birthday, and it’s always the same thing. My Edward.”

“Well, she’s part Veela, so if she draws anyone on a consistent basis, you should know what that means,” Albus Dumbledore said. “It is unusual that she drew others, though.” He turned his attention back to the drawings.

He picked them up one by one, acknowledging them for what they were. “Vampire, vampire, vampire; vampire dressed as a doctor, vampire, two more vampires, and…No!” he gasped. “It can’t be.

They were supposed to have died years ago!”

Dumbledore continued to stare at the last four pictures. The ones I could see that had him intrigued were of a dark-haired man whose hair was down to his shoulders, a taller, older-looking man I recognized straight away, another darker-haired man who had round glasses, and then a little boy, again with round glasses. But this boy also had a scar on his head, a scar in the shape of a lightning bolt.

“Molly, you better call Arthur home; he’s going to need to look after the younger ones. It looks like you, Isabella, and I are going to be going on a trip to the United States.” Albus laughed as he looked back at an older picture of Isabella’s Edward. “She’s even managed to tell us where they are located.”

Molly took the picture from Albus to have a look before she ran from the room getting the other pictures from the last five years. “Oh, my God, she’s been telling us the whole time she’s been here, but I never took notice. What does it mean? And why is he hers?” she asked, holding up the last picture.

“He’s her mate, Molly. Veela are immortal, and if they are lucky enough, for all their lives, they dream of just one man repetitively. Their mate. She is exceptional in that she’s dreamt of his family too. But now we must prepare her and ourselves to go to Forks, Washington.”

This is the beginnin’ of Bubbleybear’s epic project of weavin’ the Twilight characters into the wizardin’ world of Hogwarts! I would love to just show you the whole thing right now but I’ll leave you with Bella’s beautiful introduction to the Edward and his family!

“Hello, Miss Rosalie. You’re my big sister along with Miss Alice. I know you will be the best big sisters in the whole wide world.” She beamed like a sunny day. “My name is Isabella, but you are going to call me Bella.”

Rose and Alice had leaned forward to interact with her, but she surprised them by leaning forward and placing kisses on their cheeks.

I watched as Rose reached out and tucked some hair behind her ear. “Well, hello, you adorable little girl. I’d be honored to be your big sister.”

“Me too.” Alice clapped quietly. “We’re all going to be the best of friends.”

Isabella beamed at them again before moving on. “Mr. Jasper, you don’t need to worry; you aren’t going to eat me.” She giggled. “I don’t smell like food! Will you be my big brother?”

Jasper, who had been standing, dropped down to his knees, picked up her hand, then gallantly bowed over it, placing a kiss. “You, little lady, are fascinating. And I’d love to be your big brother.”

Again she surprised him by kissing him on the cheek and moving on to Emmett. “Hello, Mr. Bear. I don’t need to ask you because you always want to have fun! And I’m fun!”

Emmett let out a boisterous laugh, bending down to pick her up.

“Of that, Miss Bella, I have no doubt. I can’t wait to get to know you.”

She leaned in and started to whisper, it looked like she didn’t know that we could hear her. “Could you please put me down on my mummy’s lap?”

Esme put her hand over her mouth trying not to let out another sob. She was overwhelmed that this little girl wanted her to be her mother. She looked over at me, telling me silently that we would be taking care of her and confirming that she was my mate. When I nodded to let her know it was true, she held her hands out to Emmett.

Isabella snuggled right up under her chin after she was placed down. She sighed. “It’s so nice to have a mummy who will love and care for me.”

Esme whispered in her ear. “You don’t have to worry about it ever again. I will always love and care for you, Bella. I promise.” It was that promise that made Isabella break down into sobs. It looked like she’d been holding that in for quite some time. “Hush, shhh, my beautiful girl. I’m always going to be here.”

When Bella finished, she got up and walked directly to me. She climbed up onto my lap with no hesitation at all. She placed her hands on either side of my face before leaning in and placing the smallest, softest kiss on my cheek. “Hello, my Edward. I’m your Isabella. We’re mates, and I’ve been dreaming about you for years. I’m going to call you Teddy like your mother did, and to you, I’m going to be Isa.”

I leaned in and gave her a light kiss on the cheek. “Hello, Isa. I believe you are right because I feel the electrical charge between us that the other mated couples feel. Do you feel it?” She nodded so hard I thought she was going to pop her head right off. The others snickered at her. “I can’t wait to get to know you better too, and I’d love to be your Teddy.”

“Good.” She yawned before laying her head on my chest and going straight to sleep. Again, the others snickered as I wrapped my arms around her, holding her to me. She was the most adorable child I had ever seen. I had a feeling she was going to grow into one stunning woman.

“Well, that was certainly the most interesting introduction we’ve had in a while. Is it true?” Emmett commented.

I nodded, but it was Jasper who answered. “Their bond is already strong. I can feel what they are feeling and just being together like that is enough. They’re mates, but the mating instinct isn’t there yet.”

“As well it shouldn’t be,” Albus stated. “And it won’t be there until she comes of age around sixteen or seventeen.”

This first “book” is nearin’ completion and I’m so anxious to see what she does with the next one *squeeee!*

What’s everyone readin’ this week?

Happy Friday, y’all!

It was just a long weekend in Vegas, so how did eighteen year old high school senior Bella Swan end up married to thirty one year old movie exec, Edward Cullen? This is the story of their awkward life. Rated M for future lemons.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Drama – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 39 – Words: 142,116 – Reviews: 8,859 – Favs: 6,306 – Follows: 7,594 – Updated: Jan 7 – Published: Mar 15, 2012 – Status: Complete – id: 7925096

After a fun day of seein’ the sights of Las Vegas, followed by a sumptuous dinner and too much champagne, the Vegas cliché…

A deep groan escaped the chest beneath my head. How did this happen? My gaze flitted around, realizing that I was not in my hotel room. My eyes shot down, and I sighed when finding my dress was still on and so was most of his suit. Though his shirt was unbuttoned enough to reveal the sculpted chest beneath.

One of the hands moved up and brushed the hair from my face before tilting my head back. Edward’s emerald eyes widened when they met my brown.

“Jesus-fucking-Christ!” he cursed.

His eyes squeezed shut and he pinched the bridge of his nose between his thumb and forefinger. I don’t know why, but his reaction made my chest tighten. I needed to leave, get away, now.

Using the hand on his chest, I pushed up, lifting me from the bed and his warmth.

“I. . . have to go,” I whispered.

He opened his eyes at my movement, and his hand reached out, grabbing mine as I tried to remove it from his chest.

“Wait. . . What the hell is that?” he questioned and my eyes followed his down to the large diamond ring I was sporting.

“I don’t know. It was there when I woke up.”

Quickly, he jerked his other arm out from underneath my body, his eyes widening when a white gold band reflected in the light.

“Oh, my God!” I gasped. “Did we. . . I. . . how. . . ”

“I don’t know, but I think so,” he replied to my incomplete and incoherent questions, the same running through his own mind.

Jumping up, he staggered, grabbing his head and stumbling back to the bed. Trying again, slowly, he walked across the room to the table and picked something up from the glass top.

He picked up another item, and then began mumbling and chanting ‘fuck’ over and over.

“What is it?” I asked, though I had a feeling I knew what it was already.

“Well, Mrs. Cullen, it’s our marriage certificate.”

Fuck. Me.

Each assumed the other regretted the deed and the word annulment was bandied about but a clearer head prevailed!

“There you are! I didn’t think you’d be out all night. Hope you two had fun!” she exclaimed with a wink and ushered us in.

I wanted to face palm myself from her reaction. My mom was actually hoping I had sex with him?

“I’m surprised to see you as well, Edward,” she said, smiling at him.

“Well, hurry on in, check out is in two hours and I want to get another few minutes in at the casino before we head out.”

“Actually, Renee, we have something to tell you before that,” Edward started before announcing. “We got married last night.”

Her eyes were almost bugging out of her head as she looked between us.

“Don’t worry, Mom, we’re going to get an annulment,” I said hurriedly.

“Why?” my mother asked and she was genuinely confused.

What the hell?

Only my mother. Rational people knew why.

“Because, this was a mistake. We just drank too much Champagne.

She’s only eighteen, Renee,” Edward pointed out.

“So. You’re married now; why not give it a try?” Renee questioned like it was the most obvious answer.

“She’s eighteen and still in high school! We live in different states,” he argued.

“Edward, do you like her?” she asked pointedly.

“That’s irrelevant.”

“Just answer, please,” she requested.

Edward’s eyes widened. “Well. . . yes.”

“Good. She’ll go home with you, and I’ll send her things.”

“What?” Edward and I cried at the same time.

“Mom?” I looked at her inquisitively, my chest tightening. Was she trying to get rid of me?

“Oh, Bella, sweetheart,” she said and wrapped her arms around me.

“Why?” I asked softly, my voice quivering.

“I see your why and raise you a how. How do you two know this wasn’t meant to be? Maybe this was destiny hitting you both over the head,” she explained and turned to Edward. “Is that really your only concern, Edward, her age?”

“I. . . ummm.. . she’s in her senior year.”

“Yes, and it’s only the fall semester. She can easily enroll in classes where you live,” she stated and then sighed. “Look, Edward, there must have been something about her that interested you, otherwise you wouldn’t have asked her to marry you. You bought a ring and said ‘I do’. It doesn’t matter how much you had to drink, that was what you did. Drinking is not an excuse to wipe everything away in the morning. You two are married. Deal with it.”

Well, dealin’ with it AND the reaction of Edward’s family prove to be Bella’s real education…oh, that and what she learns from Edward in the bedroom and you’ll have to read to follow his class with her LMAO!

If there was a category of fics called “How The Hell Did I Miss This One?” Drotuno’s Gravity Series would be at the top of the list, which I’ve discovered to my great delight…after much urgin’ from Zveka! She’s even got Kay readin’ along with me while  she’s re-readin’ for the umpteenth time LOL!

The definition of a mercenary is a soldier for hire. His crew are trained fighting machines. Hers are smart PIs. What happens when they need each other to survive? Canon couples. AH/AU. Rated M for lots of reasons, including violence and lemons.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Hurt/Comfort/Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 33 – Words: 302,953 – Reviews: 4,752 – Favs: 3,790 – Follows: 1,407 – Updated: Jun 25, 2011 – Published: Feb 18, 2011 – Status: Complete – id: 6755101

Edward Cullen is a soldier for hire that works for his father, Bella Swan is a Private Investigator and the daughter of Carlisle Cullen’s best friend, Charlie. When Bella goes missing, Carlisle employs his own band of mercenaries, including his son to find her and protect her. What happens when Bella finds out that her father’s business partner and best friend isn’t exactly what he said he was? What happens when Bella discovers that the boy she met one time is now an efficient military killing machine? And what happens when she decides that it doesn’t matter? But what kind of Bella does Edward find?

First time Bella meets Edward:

I was twelve years old when I met the most beautiful boy I’d ever seen. He was sweet, kind, funny, and had the most adorable speech impediment. He stuttered. A lot. He was shy – very shy – with crazy hair and a crooked smile, but it was his eyes I remembered the most.

Green. They were piercing green, framed with long, dark eyelashes women would give an appendage for. He had a round face – still somewhere between boyish and teen – and smooth, pale skin.

The next time Bella comes face-to-face with Edward years later:

I heard running steps and a door open, but it was a loud boom that made my mind come undone, because suddenly, I was plunged into complete blackness. Miller had turned the lights off on me, but it had never been this dark, because the light from upstairs had always filtered dimly from underneath the door. But this…this was like someone had taped my eyes closed, like I had gone entirely blind. And that scared the shit out of me, because it wasn’t so bad when I could see shit coming my way, and now I couldn’t.

The table I was lying on shook with the force of whatever had exploded.

Another, smaller, explosion happened right above my head, causing dust to fall onto my face, and I started to struggle under the tight leather straps that Miller had around me. I was going to burn right on that table.

Quieter, yet unsure, footsteps came down the stairs, a flashlight behind them, and I started to hyperventilate. I couldn’t breathe, see, or even formulate a clear thought.

“Easy, Bella,” a smooth, velvet, but so very calming voice met my ears, and all I knew was that it wasn’t Miller.

I dissolved into hysterics.

“Shh…it’s okay, it’s okay,” he said, his fingers struggling to slide under the leather straps. “I need to get…something to cover you up…”

“Don’t leave me…” I panicked, grabbing at whatever I could get a hold of once my arms were free. “Please…don’t…” I cried.

“Okay, I won’t, I swear,” he sighed, freeing me from the rest of my restraints. He stepped back just a little, covering me up with what felt like a leather jacket. “Can you hold on?” he asked gently.

I nodded, allowing him to wrap my arms around his shoulders. Warm, strong arms slipped underneath my legs, lifting me up as if I weighed nothing, and I curled into him, unable to stem my tears.

He smelled like leather and comfort and man. He smelled like strength and warmth, and I gave in, because I was too tired, too beaten to fight.

Once he’d carried me up the stairs, I couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer.

Should you decide to join us, I promise you won’t regret it!!!

Of course it starts pouring because I actually flat-ironed my hair this morning. I hunch my shoulders as if playing turtle might stop the raindrops from landing on my head and my skintight clothes. If only I had a real waterproof shell to escape into.

Come on, 51! If the bus arrives before my T-shirt gets soaked through, this day might not be a total disaster.

A body shuffles behind me; the rain stops—or at least, it stops falling on me. A soft pitter-pat above my head muffles the noise pollution of the city street. Any other day, I would shrug away from a stranger’s umbrella. Today, I can’t afford to be prickly. 

Craning my neck, I take a cautious peek at the pavement behind me. A man’s brown loafers, almost twice the size of my own open toed sandals, stand firm against the water droplets ricocheting off the sidewalk. My gaze ventures up his tan corduroy pants, just reaching his thigh when a deep voice startles me.

“Sorry, didn’t meant to scare you. I hope you don’t mind.” 

My focus jumps to the man’s face—a handsome, grown-up face framed by a close-trimmed salt-and-pepper beard. A hint of a smile brushes his cheeks, mirrored in his silvery-blue eyes.

“Not at all. Thanks, actually.”

His grin widens. “It goes against my grain to let a lady get wet.”

Coming from any other guy, that line would definitely ring the creeper bell. Something about this man—maybe the crinkles etched at the corners of his eyes and lips—lends a sense of depth that instantly sets me at ease. Or maybe his swoon-worthy smile has lulled me into a false sense of security.

“I appreciate that.”

“My pleasure.” He steps close to my side, creating a safe, dry island for two.

Such a sweet and saucy first meetin’ as they share an umbrella and a seat on the bus. Of course, this isn’t the last time she sees him!

With trembling fingers, I pull a cocktail napkin off the stack and set it neatly in front of him. “Welcome to Hooters, Umbrella Man.”

My voice sounds steadier than I feel.

“I told you you’d get the job.”

So he had. “You come here often?”

He chuckles. “No. I had to come see for myself. . . ” What he’s come to see becomes apparent as his eyeballs hit the “HOOTERS” stretched across my chest. “Bella. Suits you.”

“Well, that doesn’t seem fair. Now you know my job and my name.”

“I’m Edward.” He offers his hand, and I take it before remembering mine is damp and chilly from handling cold beverages and wet cloths.

“Sorry, my hand is—”

His grip tightens as I try to pull away. “Incredibly soft,” he says, holding my gaze as firmly as my hand.

A shiver races up my arm. “Edward? Not Eddie or Ed? Or Ted?”

“Never Ted. Eesh!” No, I suppose, not Ted for the man who brings his mother flowers.

“Edward, then. That suits you, too. Very old-school.”

“Ouch.” He releases me and claps his hand to his chest.

“I like it. It’s different.”

“Old and different. Maybe I should quit while I’m behind.”

“Can I buy you a drink, Edward?”

“To make up for all the insults?” He gives me a fake-wounded pout I don’t buy for a second.

“Let’s call it a trade for the umbrella.”

Old School might be older but it’s nothin’ Bella can’t deal with and he’s not holdin’ back, either! Oooh, I really look forward to the updates on this one!

What fics are keepin’ you warm on a cold winter’s night?

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Bella is starving for a better life for her and her son, and taking her clothes off in front of a stranger is just the first of many lines she’ll cross.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Drama/Hurt/Comfort – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 35 – Words: 143,814 – Reviews: 10,500 – Favs: 4,907 – Follows: 6,596 – Updated: Dec 5, 2016 – Published: Nov 18, 2013 – Status: Complete – id: 9856697

Of all the wonderful WIPs on Sheviking’s profile, this is the one she managed to complete for us despite her hectic RL schedule and let me just say…DAYUM!!!

I’m walking down the sidewalk, trying to keep myself from crying. I’m humiliated and defeated. I went to the club. I crossed that line and ending up taking my clothes off in the manager’s office. I fucking did it and what did it get me? Nothing!

“You’re not hot enough to dance on stage,” he told me.

My tits are too small—meaning they’re real—and the rest of me too skinny.

“Quit starving yourself, and maybe we can work something out,” he said.

I nearly screamed. I’m fucking broke and in order for my child to eat, I skip meals.

“I’m sorry, baby,” I whisper into the cold night air, blinking back tears. “I tried.”

I don’t know what to do now. There’s no more money, and there’s food for maybe two more days. The rent is long overdue, and if we get kicked out on the street, they’ll take Seth away from me! My heart grips with fear and I have to stop walking and concentrate on breathing.

“How much?”

I startle and nearly trip as I lose my balance. A dark car has pulled over and the passenger side window is lowered.

“W-what?”

“How much?”

How much for what?

Then, the proverbial ton of bricks hits me. He thinks I’m a hooker!

Well, I guess I do look like one, sort of. Shit.

“I’m not a—”

“I don’t care,” the voice interrupts. “How. Much?”

“Look!” I say sharply. “I’m not a hooker, okay? I’m just trying to get home.”

“Three hundred dollars.”

Whoa!

I don’t know the going rate, but I’m pretty sure it’s less than that.

Three hundred dollars! To me, that’s a lot of money. I can almost taste the food I’d be able to buy with it, feel the heaviness of the grocery bags in my hands, and practically see the brimming shelves in my fridge as I put it all in there. And Seth, my darling boy, could have a real hot breakfast in the morning!

“F-for what?” I ask, stepping closer to the car.

The door opens and I catch a glimpse of a suit sleeve and a large hand.

I know I shouldn’t do this. It’s dangerous. But I can’t lose Seth!

Quickly, I bury my right hand in my coat pocket, gripping the can of mace I’d put there earlier as if it’s my lifeline, which I suppose isn’t an exaggeration in this case.

Climbing into the car with my heart in my throat, I don’t know if I’m about to make a huge mistake, but I have no choice. I’m desperate.

I’m crossing another line.

Bella soon finds herself in an arrangement with Edward, who is quite a bit older, that she actually enjoys, strange as it is…

I never know what to expect when I go to his house. Some nights I cook; on others, he orders in and I only make a dessert for us to enjoy after dinner. Sometimes he ravishes me the moment I step through the door, and other times he saves it for the end of the night. We’ve had sex in his bed, on the couch, on the kitchen table, in the hallway, and on the stairs. One night, I spent twenty minutes on my hands and knees, scrubbing his already immaculate floors while he watched warning me that I’d better keep on scrubbing unless I wanted a spanking. Smiling to myself, I slid the brush across the wet floor so it was out of reach, delighting in his reaction as he called me a naughty girl while bringing his hand down on my ass again and again until I came so hard, I could hardly see straight.

While it’s good, it’s very good but there will be angst and heartbreak before everything gets straightened out enough for Edward and Bella to get their HEA!

After her mother’s wedding in Mexico, Bella encounters a vampire with less altruistic motives than the those held by the vampires she might have met in Forks under drastically different circumstances. One bad decision, she discovers, can change her entire life. AU E/B

“So tempting,” he whispered against her skin. “Everything about you calls to me. Your body, your blood…” He moaned again. “Oh, how I long to taste your blood.” 

“If you want that kid, you’re going to have to wait a couple of weeks,” Serena said brusquely from the kitchen. 

Bella looked at her, her eyes going wide in alarm. “Weeks?” 

“That’s right,” Joham murmured, taking her by the chin and turning her face back to his so he could press a soft kiss to her lips. “That’s the beauty of keeping my girls with me throughout their pregnancies. There’s no waste. Once your child is born and no longer requires your body to sustain him, I’ll have the privilege of drinking your sweet blood.” 

Bella’s stomach rolled, but Joham didn’t seem to notice. He was back to nuzzling her neck again, his tongue flicking out to caress her skin. 

“But — but weeks? I only just got pregnant. It will be months…” 

Joham chuckled softly. “My children grow much faster than human children,” he said, sounding amused. “You’re quite lucky. A human pregnancy lasts for months on end, but from conception to birth, our son will only take four or five weeks to grow.”

OMG! How the hell is Bella gonna get herself out of this predicament? And when and where do the Cullens come in?

A true gentleman can never resist a damsel in distress.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Friendship – Chapters: 5 – Words: 16,846 – Reviews: 220 – Favs: 103 – Follows: 183 – Updated: 5h ago – Published: Jan 2 – Status: Complete – id: 12303942

Ahhh, but my 3rd complete rec is only 5 chapters and we didn’t have to wait that long at all *woohoo!*

When a handsome stranger shows up at Doctor Swan’s veterinary practice with a stray kitten, Bella is completely smitten and it’s hard to watch him walk out the door not knowin’ if she’ll ever see him again!

At the start of the following week, we’re getting ready to close up when I hear Alice calling Rose to look at something on the computer.

I’ve just locked the door and am flipping the sign to closed when she calls me over. “Bella, you’ve got to see this!”

Walking over, I see she has a YouTube video paused. “What’s this?”

“Remember that hottie who was here with the kitten?”

Like I could forget. “Uh huh. What about him?”

With the grin she’s sporting, Alice looks like the cat that ate the canary. She reaches over and grabs the mouse. “Watch this. You’re going to die!”

She clicks the play button, and my eyes widen in horror as I see a helpless kitten stuck on a busy interstate. Cars are flying by, some swerve, and some straddle it, while the poor baby lies there, completely defenseless. The scene plays out over and over as cars, buses and trucks shockingly miss the terrified creature. I’m already wringing my fingers with anxiety over how this may turn out, until finally, this one car comes to a stop right there on the freeway and turns on its hazard lights, blocking the flow of traffic in that lane. I let out a deep sigh of relief, but then, my jaw drops as a sexy as hell man strolls from the car, as if he’s on a runway. I watch, elated, as he reaches down to snag the little ball of fluff from danger. The riot of hair on his head, the tight plaid button up, rolled to the elbows and cowboy boots are enough to give him away immediately. It’s Edward!

Of course, we wouldn’t have much of a story if Edward hadn’t had his socks knocked off, too…he came back!!!

 

Swallowing, I force my eyes open to meet his. “What else did you need?”

Leaning even closer, his forehead nearly touches mine. His lips are so near that it would only take a small move to connect mine to his.

He speaks in that gravelly voice I love so much. “I was hoping that you’d agree to a date. I’d love to take you out and get to know you better.”

My eyes dart between his green ones and those full lips. I should probably say no. He lives seventy-five miles away. Plus, all my attention needs to go to my practice right now. None of that matters, though, when he’s all I’ve been thinking about, and he’s here and so close I can feel the heat coming off him. “I’d love that.”

It’s a short, sweet, hawt read you’re sure to enjoy!

Happy Friday, y’all!

It’s the hottest book of the season, every kid wants it. When two people who often clash at work go head-to-head for the last one on the shelf, who will come up the winner? A holiday fic written from a Pay it Forward prompt and for my Secret Santa last year, thank you again.

Edward’s assistant goes on maternity leave but ultimately decides she’d rather stay home with her twins than come back to work. Stuck between a rock and a hard place, Edward proposes to make Bella’s temporary position permanent!

“What is in it for me?”

His eyes narrowed again. “What do you mean?”

“Let’s see, you have no choice, you need me as you explained. However, I do have a choice. My contract ends in two weeks, I could simply walk away. You’ve given me nothing but hell for two months, why should I stay?”

“You’ve seen the package and benefits, I’ll throw in five percent more, and an extra week vacation time.”

“I’ll take the extra week, but ten percent more and Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve off next week.” The office was closed for Christmas and New Year’s Day, but Mr. Cullen had calls and video conferences scheduled around the holidays.

“Oh, um, thank you.” He nodded, waiting for something else. “Do we have a deal, Mr. Cullen?”

“No.”

Bella pursed her lips. “What do you want?”

“New Year’s Eve; I need you here.”

“All night?” she asked. He nodded once again. “And you’re agreeing to my pay raise and extra week?”

“You drive a hard bargain, Miss Swan. Yes, I’ll agree to your terms.”

She smiled as she stood up, holding out her hand for his as he rose to his feet. “You have yourself a deal, Mr. Cullen.”

“Good, now go get me some coffee, make a fresh pot.” He said it with such authority that normally she would snap right to it, but if he wanted her to work for him, some things had to change. She waited, even after his dismissal, his attention already on his planner. “Is there something else, Miss Swan?” he asked without looking up.

“I know you have an eidetic memory, so use it to figure out why I’m still waiting.”

He looked up at her, his eyes narrowing again. “You’re pushing your luck, Miss Swan.”

She batted her lashes and smiled sweetly, adding a little wink that seemed to make him smile. Though he covered it quickly, adding a gruff, “please,” to his request.

She walked out of his office with a bounce in her step and swing in her hips, singing Christmas carols.

Edward sat back, watching the delectable Miss Swan, and wondered what circle of hell she was sent from to torment him.

This fic is so much fun…just try to resist!

It’s been a good while since we’ve had a good RockStarward so I jumped onto this one the instant I read the summary!

Bella Swan never expected superstar Edward Cullen to wander into Walgreen’s and she never expected him to change her life.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Bella – Chapters: 8 – Words: 23,663 – Reviews: 272 – Favs: 213 – Follows: 471 – Updated: 3h ago – Published: Nov 4 – id: 12219270

Bella glanced at the clock for what felt like the thousandth time that night. 11:42. It was like that time keeping monster was running more slowly just to spite her. She gave it the finger. She dropped the accusing finger quickly when the doors slid open.

“Welcome to Walgreens,” she said slapping on her retail smile.

The grunt that came from the ball cap clad gentleman wasn’t inviting but it was retail standard. Customers had a habit of forgetting the people behind the counter were real, live humans who addressed them. Bella felt her smile fade and she turned her gaze back to the clock. 11:43. Rat bastard clock.

She moved from around the counter to the magazine rack to straighten the misplaced gossip rags. She read the headlines without much consideration. Leo was dating another model. Brad and Angie were splitting up. . . again. Blake Shelton did something redneck. A Kardashian did something trashy. Edward Cullen was spotted hand in hand with the star of some new drama that Bella would never see.

Bella wrinkled her nose. The allure of life where your every move was media headlines was lost on her. She didn’t aspire to notoriety. Her goals were more along the lines of having enough funds to move out of her dad’s place. She hoped that if she really worked hard, that place would have a fridge filled with Killian’s instead of Bud Light.

“Excuse me,” the guy from earlier was at the counter. The only item he placed there was a bottle of wine.

“Sorry,” Bella told him slapping on the retail smile again as she headed over. “Just tidying up.”

“No problem,” he replied without looking up from his fishing expedition in his wallet.

His voice was nice. Melodic. And, bonus, he spoke real words to her instead of grunting this time.

“May I see your ID?” Bella asked picking up the wine.

“Uh. . . ”

His hesitation made Bella’s nerves twinge. No freaking way was she getting into it with some underage punk who wanted to give her shit ten minutes before close. Then he looked up and she understood. Her mouth dropped open. Her eyes darted to the magazines she’d just organized.

“You’re Edward Cullen,” her tone was way more accusatory than she meant for it to be.

He looked both hesitant and amused.

“I am,” he agreed.

Bella felt her nose wrinkle. Words were out of her mouth before she could put them together the right way. The right way being something without profanity.

“What the fuck are you doing in Forks?”

What the fuck indeed?

He could think of at least a thousand things he’d rather do than trek off to some Podunk town in Washington to celebrate the retirement of Dr. Carlisle Cullen. He’d rather have a sex tape with the ugly Kardashian leaked. He’d rather do Kimmel after swallowing a bucket full of acid. He’d rather cover Celine Dion for the rest of eternity.

To say Edward’s relationship with his father is a train wreck is puttin’ it mildly! Still, he might just have found another reason to come back to Forks…a girl who treats him like a normal human being!

With her backpack across her shoulders, she headed down the cemetery path and through the wrought iron gates. The walk back home would be nice. Forks was quite on Sundays, with folks at church or home doing the family thing. The streets were nearly empty, and Bella felt the sadness that crept in drifting away again.

For a while, after her mom died, Bella was scared of the sadness.

She was scared that she would be devoured by it, just like her mom was. Even though she had lived in Forks for a few years, she was still on the outskirts of the kid populace. She wasn’t bullied but she didn’t really have a circle either.

Bella’s attention was caught when the sleek SUV that was driving by eased to a stop along the sidewalk in front of her. Her curiosity was peaked but many, many SUV reruns with her dad made her ease off to the opposite side of the walkway. As she approached, she saw the passenger side window was down. Behind the wheel was the fuck-hot man she’d just been telling her mother about.

“Hey little girl, need a ride?” he quipped.

Bella felt her mouth curve up in a smile and her heart started to pound.

“Got any candy?” she asked reaching for the door.

~oOo~

Creepy as hell but it’s Drotuno and, as impossible as it seems at first glance, I’m trustin’ her to take us to a happy place in the end!

A month after losing his wife, Edward Masen was taking it one day at a time, trying to simply survive the torrent of grief. Surrounded by memories of their life together and messages she left, he was already questioning his sanity when his phone lit up in the middle of the night… with her picture and number. EPOV/OOC/AU

Plus, I’m a sucker for any fic that includes a cat!

Resetting my alarm for just a bit earlier, I fell back on the bed, smiling over at Steve, who barely shifted when the bed moved. One long, orange paw stretched out, finally covering his eyes.

“Right, right. . . Turn the light out, human. Got it.” I chuckled, reaching over to shut off the light.

The room went dark, except for the street light outside beaming in through the window. I closed my eyes and pulled the covers up, trying to relax after the long, strange day. Just as I was about to roll over, the sound of my phone buzzing across my nightstand had my eyes snapping open.

Once I’d grabbed the phone, my heart stopped and my hand shook so badly I almost dropped the phone to the floor. As it was, it landed on the bedside table with a thump, still continuing to vibrate. But it was who was calling that had my brow breaking out into a sweat.

My wife’s happy smile, a picture I’d taken just a few months ago, lit up the screen of my phone. Her number. Her face. It didn’t make sense. She was gone, and so was her phone.

Swallowing thickly, I swiped my thumb across the screen to answer.

“Who is this?” I answered angrily.

There was a sudden inhale of breath, but whoever was on the other end didn’t say anything.

“How did you get this phone!?” I yelled, starting to shake with anger and heartbreak. “Answer me, dammit! Where did you find it?!”

There was that same whispering that sounded like static, and then the phone beeped that the call had been ended.

I wanted to throw my phone, but at the same time, I wanted answers. My first assumption was that some kids had found my wife’s phone and were playing around. But deep down, somewhere in the depths of my soul, I wanted her back. And as crazy as it sounded, I’d take whatever I could, even though I knew it wasn’t possible. My wife had died almost a month and a half ago.

Geez, the hairs on my arms just stood on end readin’ this again *shudder!*

The gore factor is strong in this one LMAO!

This could have been your typical high school romance. Boy meets girl. They fall in love. Live happily ever after. But when a deadly illness breaks out in Forks, students at Forks’ High have to put the romance aside and do what they can to stay alive. Even if that means losing a few friends along the way. Rated M ExB

Rated: Fiction M – English – Horror/Romance – Chapters: 4 – Words: 6,466 – Reviews: 193 – Favs: 154 – Follows: 312 – Updated: Dec 27 – Published: Dec 12 – id: 12269910

Just then, the bells rings, and the lunchroom erupts in the chaos that is “making it to your next class on time.”

“I’ll see you next hour.” Edward grabs his belongings and joins the masses. We’re herded like cattle, out the tiny double doors that lead from the cafeteria into the halls, and disperse from there.

I make a quick stop at my locker and turn to go to my next class when I see her.

Tanya walking, more like stumbling down the hall. She trips over her own feet and falls into a small group of people. She doesn’t get up right away, her shoulders heave up and down like she’s trying to catch her breath.

“Tanya, are you okay?” One of her friends rushes to her side.

“No. I can’t breathe,” she gasps. “I can’t.” She starts to cough, so violently that she falls again, this time onto the ground.

As soon as she does, everyone around her gasps. Her face has these strange spots all over it, almost like pimples, but they’re huge and raw. The next time she coughs, blood spurts from her mouth like an erupting volcano.

“Oh my God. . . ” I whisper, instinctively backing up.

Mr. Franklin, the math teacher, steps out into the hallway to see what the commotion is. When he spots Tanya, he immediately springs into action.

“Everyone, back up. Back up, people!” He kneels down beside Tanya and checks her out. She coughs again, spewing another rain of blood.

Mr. Franklin backs away, shocked, his shirt and his face dotted with red spots. “Oh, dear.” He turns to another student. “Call 911!”

By that time, more teachers and students had gathered. I’m frozen, standing by my locker with my hands gripping my books so tightly that I can’t feel my fingers.

“Come on, guys. Let’s give her some room. Ambulance is on the way.” Principal Walters starts pushing all of the students back, urging them to get to class while they tend to Tanya.

I force myself to look away and robotically walk to my next class, one foot in front of the other.

Edward is already in his seat, seemingly blissfully unaware of what’s going on in the hallway. He’s got his headphones in, working on his homework before class starts.

I plop down beside him, still shaking and unable to speak. When he finally notices me, he immediately pulls his headphones off.

“Bella? What’s wrong?” He asks.

“Did you see her just go down?” A student says, walking in the door.

“No, but I saw the blood, man. It was all over Mr. Franklin’s face!” Another says.

As the classroom fills with students, all chattering about Tanya, Edward seems to get a good idea of what happened without me uttering a single word.

Our teacher tries to run a normal class for about five minutes before she realizes it’s not going to happen and declares it a study hour.

A text ringer goes off on someone’s phone. Then another one. Then another one. The teacher doesn’t bother yelling at anyone for it.

As each student reads their texts, the talk starts.

She started bleeding out of her eyes, nose, ears, and mouth.

She was convulsing as they took her out in the ambulance.

And the final one. The worst one.

She’s dead.

So, what do Mike Newton, a wild party and a dead deer have to do with anything? You’re gonna have to read to find out!

Happy Friday, y’all!
