ROB ATTACK

Evenin’, ladies!

Well, a promise is a promise so here are some complete fic recs for Eewee darlin’!

And, as it turns out, there’s significant age difference in the first two but so well written, you can’t help but love ’em!

ROB ATTACK

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10020758/1/This-Side-of-the-Equator

On that side of the Equator a six year age difference is nothing, just a number that loses meaning in the face of adventures and shared interests and long bus rides. But on this side of the Equator, in Forks Washington where Bella is a teacher, six years are everything, an impenetrable barrier that makes life impossible when Edward Cullen shows up as an exchange student.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Angst – [Bella, Edward] [Emmett, Rosalie] – Chapters: 21 – Words: 91,415 – Reviews: 1,048 – Favs: 575 – Follows: 980 – Updated: Oct 9 – Published: Jan 14, 2014 – Status: Complete – id: 10020758

So, this is what happens when your vacation fling follows you home…

“Edward,” I say, leaning against my desk. Needing a moment to collect myself, I dig the heels of my hands into my eyes. Three deep breaths and my hands fall to my sides as I straighten to look at him.

He’s closed the distance between us. I have to look up to meet his eyes. “You’re an exchange student?”

“Cool, yeah?” he says, smiling once more.

“You’re an exchange student in Forks?” I demand, not really believing it.

“You moved back to Forks. I came to Forks. Simple.”

“No!” I shriek, glancing nervously towards my still open door. “No! Not simple. You are my student, Edward. How are you still in high school? You’re nineteen. You just turned nineteen. You graduated!”

The difference in our ages once felt like nothing, forgotten in the face of shared interests and experience. Now these six years separating us might as well be the fucking ocean.

And they will drown me.

“I’m your teacher,” I repeat.

“I forget how prudish Americans are,” he says, rolling his eyes. He takes another step closer and I push back into my desk with such force that the metal legs drag on the linoleum. The sound is unpleasant but Edward takes another step. I scramble around the desk, pleased to have a physical barrier separating us. “Are you running from me, love?”

“Do not call me that!” I am absolutely seething, glancing at the door every three seconds. I play with that annoying patch of wispy hair at my temple. The rate I am going this will be another nervous habit, joining the lip biting. “In this classroom, in this school, it’s Miss Swan.”

This fic is chock full of angsty goodness, trials and tribulations…mostly for Bella ’cause Edward doesn’t see the problem, but you can count on the HEA they both deserve!

Hot old dude was cocky from the beginning, yet for some reason she wanted him. He was relentless, and she was a brat, but together they were on fire.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 24 – Words: 80,345 – Reviews: 1,348 – Favs: 987 – Follows: 1,248 – Updated: Aug 25 – Published: Feb 13, 2015 – Status: Complete – id: 11042171

On the opposite end of the age spectrum from Equator, I present to you Asshole and Brat!

Hawaii is like a dream come true. Four days in paradise are just what the doctor ordered. Between finals and helping my sister plan this shotgun wedding, I need to just relax.

I exit the airport in Kona and find the shuttle bus to the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. It’s crowded and although the air conditioning seems to be on high, it’s hot as hell in here.

There is one available seat, which happens to be next to some sexy as fuck older dude. He’s not as old as my dad, Charlie, but I would say he has at least ten years on me.

If I didn’t have the five-year-rule, I would totally get on that.

His face is divine and I’m not exaggerating. Old dude is smoking, with his chiseled cheekbones covered in facial hair. His green eyes dance mischievously as they take me in.

“I’m here for a family thing but…” He shrugs his shoulder suggestively, and then gives me a sexy smirk and a wink.

Five-year rule.

I do not do older men.

Not even sexy-as-fuck old men.

“Does that usually work for you? What’s the matter can’t find a woman your own age down at the senior citizens home?” I give him my best bitch brow, but it does nothing but cause him to laugh loud and hard.

“Playing hard to get? I like that.” He inclines further into me and takes a deep breath.

“You need to back off, gramps. The desperate act is not a good look on you.” I turn around in my seat officially dismissing him.

I’ll be damn if I give him the satisfaction of knowing I’m attracted to him. Nope, I’m sure once the bus gets to the hotel I’ll be so busy with maid of honor duties that I’ll never see any other hotel guests…

Especially hot-as-fuck-old-dude.

The van pulls to a stop in front of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. It is breathtaking. People start exiting the van and I turn to face sexy grandpa.

“Well, I hope you find a young girl that will fall for your lines. Enjoy your vacation.” I stand up grabbing my bags.

“Oh baby, I’m sure before my vacation is over, I’ll have you beneath me.” He says as he follows me off the van.

“In your dreams.” I turn away from him trying to hide my blush.

I quickly take my luggage, rolling it to the front desk, acutely aware that sexy is following me. I may or may not add an extra swing in my step, giving him a full view of the ass.

Again, this fic has the most wonderful HEA with lots of fun and fuckhawt lemons along the way! Low on angst…high on fun!

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11287145/1/Cold

The winter of 1869 recorded a low temperature that would last for more than one hundred and fifty years. The only thing colder ever recorded was Isabella Cullen’s marriage bed. Entry for the Caveat Emptor: Maybe An HEA? contest. Trigger warning. Now expanded from original contest entry.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Angst/Hurt/Comfort – Bella, Edward, Jasper – Chapters: 24 – Words: 73,905 – Reviews: 1,755 – Favs: 766 – Follows: 1,108 – Updated: Oct 5 – Published: Jun 2, 2015 – Status: Complete – id: 11287145

Warning: This story takes place in a time when women had no control over anything including their own bodies. They could not own property, vote, or serve in office. Most importantly to this story, legally there was no such thing as marital rape. Being married implied consent. This story touches on this dubious consent. Although today it is, rightly, considered rape, in that time it was not. The law was not changed in Canada until just after the Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982) was enacted, in 1983. Please do not read this story if it will in any way make you uncomfortable or trigger a reaction. 

This fic ain’t gonna be everyone’s cup of tea but for those souls brave enough to take it on, there is great reward at the end!

A large sign proclaiming Inn at the Forks announced her arrival. The building was bigger than any she had ever seen and she wondered how she was to clean it all. Perhaps there would be another maid or two to help. She tried to brush the dust off her dress before walking into the main reception hall to find her employer. A cheery peal of bells sounded as she opened the door. The young man at the counter took in the sight of travel-weary Isabella and smiled at her. She walked to the desk and put her baggage on the floor.

“I am Isabella Swan. I’m to see Mr. Cullen.”

The young man at the counter nodded and left the desk. He came back minutes later with a tall man, who had a look of consternation on his face.

“You are Isabella Swan?” Isabella nodded her head.

“This way.” The man pointed to an open door just beside the desk.

“Get Weber.” He said to the desk clerk.

Isabella picked up her bags and followed the tall man. He led her through a few hallways to the back of the Inn. He held a door open for her and motioned for her to go ahead of him. Once through the door he pointed to a smaller building set away from the Inn. It was a large carriage house with what looked like living quarters above. He led her again to a stairway up to the living area. When she opened the door she saw that it was a dwelling rather than the dormitory she was expecting. She looked around the sitting room just off the entry. It was well appointed and comfortable looking although it could do with a good cleaning. The tall man stood by the door with his back to her. She waited patiently for him to give her instructions.

“You are not what I expected.” He finally said after a very lengthy pause.

“I’m sorry, Sir. It was a very taxing journey. If you could show me to my room I can clean up before meeting Mr. Cullen and starting my work as housekeeper.” Isabella was exhausted but could rally her courage to begin her new life.

“I am Mr. Cullen. This is your new home, not your place of employment.

You are here to become my wife, not my housekeeper.”

The tall man did not even turn to face her as he destroyed her every perception.

“My uncle said I was to be a housekeeper at the Inn. Not your wife.” Isabella’s voice shook with terror.

“Your uncle told me you were pretty; I guess he lied to us both.

Here’s the Minister. Just do as you are told, do you understand?

Answer every one of his questions with an affirmative.” The tall man finally turned and fixed her with a glare.

“Yes, Sir.” Isabella obeyed.

For a period piece that starts out so dark, it gets even darker until it finally takes a turn into the light when the right Cullen turns up to set things right! Ain’t gonna give away the plot any further than that LOL!

Lookin’ forward for your recs!

Happy Friday, y’all!

“The leaves are falling.” The amazement in his voice made me smile.

He had always been excited with the leaves falling, the colors they changed to.

“They are. I think we will have to rake them up soon. But I think maybe for today, we could go to the park and walk around. Seems a good day for it. And you could pick up some more leaves for your collection.” I turned around and began to walk towards the front door, grabbing our coats along the way.

Toby followed, and then stopped, looking entirely way too serious for a four-year-old. “You know. . . I think I need another red leaf.”

I turned my head, my hand automatically coming up to my now long beard, and Idly wonder if I should shave it all off or keep it on with the oncoming cold weather. My son, Toby, has never seen me without it in all his years so far on this earth.

“Like you don’t have enough of those?”

He laughed and turned around so that I could help him into his coat. “Nope! Wanna know why, Dad?”

I knew his answer; it was always the same.

“Because my friend loves the color red.”

She was sitting on her favorite bench. Red hat on top of her head, long brown, wavy hair blowing every which way in the wind, but she smiled the instant she saw Toby running toward her.

Toby stopped and stood still a few feet from his friend and brought his hands up. He confidently signed, Hello, friend!, and her eyes lit up as her smile grew bigger. She signed back, slowly so that Toby would know most of the letters. Hello, Toby.

Her eyes found mine just before she patted the seat next to her for Toby to sit down. I slowly walked up to them, taking in the sight.

And then I signed what she taught me weeks ago.

Hello, Bella.

Careful, now! You just might crack your teeth on this one!

She realizes he may be one of the most feared men of New York, but that doesn’t stop her from trying to help him. In doing so, she finds herself mixed up with some unsavory characters.

“What do we got?” I yelled.

“Caucasian male, mid twenties to thirties. No I.D. Unconscious.

Gun shot wound to the abdomen. He’s lost of a lot blood. Oxygen and heart rate are steadily dropping.”

“Last vital check?”

He called off the numbers. We had to get this guy into surgery NOW.

I barked out orders and soon the man was on the operating table.

Hours later. . . .

Nicole, the front desk receptionist, greeted me with a half smile.

“Hey Nicole. What do you need?” I asked.

Nicole motioned for me to get closer. “Two men came in looking for a gunshot victim.”

“Are they police?”

“No.” She replied.

Nicole’s voice got lower. “I have a bad feeling about these two men.

Watch your back.”

I nodded and then she motioned her head, indicating where the two men where.

They were in suits and looked to be about mid-twenties. Once they saw me look in their direction they walked towards me.

“Sweetheart, will you be able to give us some answers?” He said with a thick Jersey accent. He smiled, trying to be charming. He was average looking with brown hair and grey eyes. I had a bad feeling about him.

“You’re friend isn’t here. I’m sorry.” And then turned to walk away.

Before I took five steps I heard one say, “Come on. We got three more hospitals to check. If Masen is still alive, we got to finish the job.”

My blood ran cold. I forced myself to keep walking, to act like I didn’t hear their comment.

I walked back to the unidentified man’s room. I leaned back against the door and stared at his unconscious body. They were talking about him. I could feel it in my bones. They also said “Masen.” The name of a supposed mafia family here in New York City. A name that put fear in just about everybody. The men in the waiting room could very well be from a rival mob. And I made myself stuck in the middle of it all.

Now what to do?

I went to the table and grabbed the cellphone from before. I took a deep breath and called the number I did earlier. When he picked up, I didn’t wait for him to answer.

“You need to get here and get your friend out ASAP.”

An unpolished jewel that grabbed me by the throat and wouldn’t let go LOL!

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12175535/1/The-Emperor

He is the ruthless Emperor of the world- the oldest and most powerful Vampire in existence. She is a young human girl. What will happen when he finds his mate in her after years of loneliness?

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Supernatural – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 3 – Words: 6,834 – Reviews: 73 – Favs: 100 – Follows: 195 – Updated: Oct 10 – Published:Oct 3 – id: 12175535

The careful façade of humanity which I had perfected over the years, was ripped to shreds. I was no longer Edward Masen, the Emperor of the shadowy world of Humans and Vampires, but an animalistic Vampire who had caught the delectable scent of his mate.

The beast was released from his cage.

With an effortless pull, I ripped the door of my car off of its hinges and jumped out, fierce growls issuing from my chest. I was unmindful of screams of panic as humans around me ran for their lives. Lost in frenzy as I was, only the scent of my mate registered to me. That delicate aphrodisiac which was a heady amalgam of freesias and strawberries, commanded my senses in every possible way.

I was barely aware of the rush of footsteps behind me, as my guards followed me. But none dared to stop me, which was quite prudent of them, for it was the height of stupidity to try to stop a Vampire lost in mating frenzy.

The last mistake one can ever make.

Got another bag of goodies for you today, so gather ’round, gather ’round!

Now, it’s not often I rec a particular author twice in a row but Lara’s givin’ us a Prisonward and, even with only one chapter up, I’m absolutely rivited!

ROB ATTACK{banner by MarieCarro}

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12177956/1/Ex-Delicto

An imprisoned man who’s run out of options to prove his innocence, a young attorney volunteering her time to help the wrongly convicted, and the actual criminal walking around free for ten years. The consequences of a crime are far reaching and often unseen.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Drama/Hurt/Comfort – Bella, Edward – Words: 1,306 – Reviews: 58 – Favs: 103 – Follows: 210 – Published: Oct 5 – id: 12177956

Ex Delicto ~ “from a transgression”; indicating the consequence of a crime.

I found myself drawn to the files of the man about my age, who had been sitting in a cell for ten years for something he might not have done. I normally waited to get a feel at the first visit, and I never accepted sexual assault cases.

This one had hooked me, though, and my mind continuously drifted back to the letter his mother included with his application. I had to go, needed to meet him and make the decision. I pictured a wrongly accused 19-year-old, sentenced to 15 years in prison when he knew he was entirely innocent. Then I pictured him being released in five years, having to register as an offender and not being able to get a job or a place to live.

Sighing heavily, I picked up my phone and looked at my schedule for tomorrow afternoon. I needed to see what I could do about this one and get the ball rolling before he spent another unnecessary day in that hellhole.

She already has 11 chapters written and says she’ll update once a week and not let it interrupt her other two stories!

The downside of high school: cafeteria food sucks, and sometimes, you’re cast as the weirdo. On the bright side, sometimes Edward Cullen is your best friend. Even if it is a secret.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Friendship/Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 14 – Words: 47,780 – Reviews: 915 – Favs: 620 – Follows: 1,223 – Updated:Sep 4 – Published: Feb 29 – id: 11815724

As I weave through the crowded hall, no one looks at me. That’s the only thing about crowds I can stand. I’m like a blind spot. In fact, my superhero name would probably be Blind-Spot Girl. Attention just bounces off me.

All Edward wants to do is hang out with me, in public. Like real friends do.

But I can’t, because I like not being noticed. I like not having people look at me. And if we hang out in public, and someone sees us, they’ll notice. They’ll start talking, and they’ll stare at me at school, and I don’t want that. I don’t know how to deal with that.

“I’m sorry,” I mumble, guilt settling in my gut, squirming and heavy. “It’s not that I don’t want to hang out. I just…” I trail off, ending with a shrug instead.

He shakes his head. “No, I know. It’s fine.”

We both know it isn’t.

Awww, bless their hearts! But don’t worry! Edward is slowly but surely and oh so carefully breakin’ through Bella’s painfully shy shell and it’s beautiful to behold!

You’re gonna love it!

Edward is a loner … always has been. The only people he’s ever loved are his parents and they were taken from him. The day he rides into town to bury his mother and father, he sees her.

Taking one last long draw on his beer, he spies a group of women sitting at a round table, laughing, enjoying their evening. One of them in particular looks as if she wishes she were somewhere else, only smiling to appease the others.

Draining the last of his brew, he sets it down, slips out from his booth, and grabs his leather jacket. While he slips an arm into the sleeve, he makes eye contact with the brunette.

Her mouth goes dry the closer he gets, but when he walks past her, she slumps in disappointment. She notices the bad boy look about him; the tattoos, the leather, his day-old beard. Although he’s not the type of man she would typically go for, this man certainly has her insides reacting, especially when she hears the motorcycle fire up outside.

She’s never seen him around before, but he must be a local, otherwise the guys at the bar would be pestering him just to get him to leave. She shrugs and returns her focus to her friends.

You think it’s gonna end there? Naaaa!

As he tries to lift the engine off the repair rack and back onto the pallet, he loses his grip and his footing. In an attempt to regain his hold on the motor to avoid dropping it, his chest meets the propeller, and his back hits the ground. Managing to get to his knees, he rights the motor onto the pallet and absentmindedly rubs the sharp pain in his chest. When he pulls his wet hand back, he finds blood dripping through his fingers.

Looking down at his shirt, he sees it’s soaked with blood, and when he looks down through the neckline of his shirt, all he sees is blood and the meat of his pectoral muscle.

“Well, fuck,” he mutters.

Oh, and did I mention she’s a doctor?

When graduate student Isabella Swan decides to write her final paper on death row inmate Edward Masen, she promises her mother she won’t get too involved. She couldn’t have been more wrong. Rated M for language, content. B/E Mini Fic

For my “complete” offerin’, I’m goin’ back a ways to one of my favorite Prisonwards ever!

Dear Mr. Masen,

My name is Isabella Swan and I’m a graduate student at the University working on a research paper for my Criminology class. Our assignment is to research and present a paper on a subject of our choosing. I’ve chosen you Mr. Masen. I understand that your current situation limits visitors, but I would like a chance to speak with you. I look forward to hearing from you and the opportunity to learn more about you.

Sincerely,

Isabella Swan

For the next two weeks, I waited by the door watching for the mail to come. Every day I was disappointed so I stopped looking for it.

“Hey Bella,” one of my neighbors called as they passed.

“Hey Ben.” I smiled and pulled the mail from my mailbox. I shuffled through the usual items and finally came to the last envelope. I recognized my handwriting right away and my heart jumped into my throat. He wrote back.

My fingers shook as I tore at the paper. There was one piece of paper inside. And it was the same one I’d sent him. I scanned my own letter until I noted the different handwriting at the bottom.

Not interested.

Yeah, like that’s gonna stop her! This girl isn’t gonna stop until she gets her way, even if it means bringin’ out the big guns…his family!

“You’re a persistent little one aren’t you?” He asked me, turning back towards the glass.

“You wouldn’t answer my letters.”

“I thought maybe you’d get the hint after I sent them back a few times, but apparently I was mistaken.”

“Mr. Masen, please agree to these interviews. I’m interested in your life, how you grew up, your family, what happened with Tanya. I want to hear all of it.”

“Nobody wants to hear any of it,” he said, turning angry. “Nobody.”

“I do.”

“I call bullshit.” 

“It’s not…bullshit!” I said, a little louder than I expected.

“How’d you get in here anyway?” He asked, seemingly curious.

“I used your sister’s driver’s license. She dropped it after we had lunch at the diner.”

“Alice talked to you?” His brow furrowed.

“Yes.”

He tapped his finger slowly on the countertop as a smug smirk spread across his lips. “I’ll talk to my lawyer about arranging the interviews.” He stood from the chair. “And give my sister her ID back; she’s probably shitting a brick right now.”

“So…you’re saying yes?” I squeaked.

“I’m saying yes.”

An excerpt from one of their early interviews…it’s just tragic the low opinion Edward has always had of himself!

We’d covered a lot about his childhood. He got yanked from his parents’ house when he was four because of their drug habit and was placed in foster care. After that, it was a string of screw ups and shuffling. Different homes, different families, different schools. As he spoke about his experiences, I couldn’t help but think that the system failed him.

“Let’s see. My last foster dad had just kicked the ever living shit out of me.” He scratched his head. “Put me in the hospital, which is where I met Carlisle. He uh…took a liking to me I guess.”

“And why was that?”

“He thought he could…save me, or some bullshit.” He shook his head.

“Why is that bullshit? Being saved?”

“Because people like me don’t get saved, Bella.” He looked up at me and shrugged.

“People like you?”

He laughed under his breath. “I’m no good, you know that right?”

“How do I know that?”

“Because.” He looked down at his fingers. “That’s what they all tell you.”

Damn, this calls for a reread *sigh!*

What fics have you so intrigued you can’t put them down?

Happy Friday, y’all!

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4487327/1/Major-Jasper-and-Blackbird

Bella talks in her sleep. Emmett gets an idea. Jasper/Bella bonding ensues.

Why I’d never heard of this author before, I don’t know but I literally gorged myself on all her one shots…this was my favorite and so good, I had to share!

Major Jasper and Blackbird: or, Why Edward Decided (for the 23rd time) That Emmett Needed to Die Already!

Emmett was on babysitting duty. Jasper was also left at home, but no one expected him to watch Bella and he would never have offered unless it was an absolute necessity. 

Emmett hears something with huge potential for mischief when she sleep talks after dozin’ off durin’ a movie and surprises her next day with a trampoline!

And so it began. It was a matter of trial and error – Jasper didn’t quite know how much pressure to assert when Bella’s small frame made contact with the trampoline, and Bella didn’t know what to make of the added height and momentum he gave her. She soared off the right side a fair few times, always being caught in either Emmett or Jasper’s arms before she could injure herself. She showed no sign of nervousness or discomfort, only joy and abandon – a steady stream of her laughter ringing through the clearing.

Her feelings were having an incredible effect on Jasper; he couldn’t remember a time when he’d felt so wonderful without being near Alice. He couldn’t help but spread it around, causing a very silly grin to form on Emmett’s dimpled face.

Of course, Edward comes home from a huntin’ trip at exactly the wrong time…well, you’ll just have to read the whole thing to see how that turns out LMAO!

The wind is hot, and I’m sticky and sweaty and need to go home and take a shower. I should be taking advantage of the fact that we’re done early for the day, but I’m not. Instead, I’m sitting in my truck, waiting for the mom with the double stroller to walk by. I do this every day of the week and even though I worry I’m becoming a little creepy, I can’t seem to stop myself.

Twilight – Rated: T – English – Romance/Hurt/Comfort – Chapters: 6 – Words: 13,570 – Reviews: 486 – Favs: 237 – Follows: 444 – Updated: Sep 28 – Published:Aug 26 – Bella, Edward

Some of you might recognize the first chapter from the Meet the Mate contest where it took 3rd place…Meli has since expanded this wonderful story, for which I am eternally grateful!

I first noticed this woman who I’ve dubbed – double stroller mom – on the Monday we started working to replace the sidewalks in the older neighbourhood on the east end of town. She was walking at a quick pace on the opposite side of the street, pushing a double stroller with one child jumping up and down in it, and another that looked like a baby. Behind her trailed a young girl, maybe five or six years old, who was trying to keep up.

Weeks later, I’m on my hands and knees in a dugout that was once a sidewalk and will be again soon, when I hear a soft sniffling sound. Looking up, I see two, small, bare feet with toenails that look as if they’re painted with sparkly pink dirt. As I slowly stand and raise my eyes, I notice knobbly knees just under the hem of a short pink nightgown with multi-color cupcakes printed all over it. I start chuckling at the cuteness of it all, but quickly stop when I see her face. It’s double stroller mom’s little mini-me. Her brown eyes look abnormally large on such a little face and for a moment, she just stares at me. Brushing the dirt off my hands, I look up at the house and then back at the girl. She looks as though she is going to be sick, but in a small, quiet voice she says “my mom,” and “blood” in such a way that it leaves me cold.

Thus begins Edward’s entrance into the world of Double Stroller Mom!  Oh, and she has a nickname for him, too…Rusty!

Prepare to meet one of the baddest ass Bellas ever!

“Someone in this bar has been banned,” my voice rang out in the silence. “Someone was told to stay away, or there would be consequences.” I stopped swinging, banging the business end of my stick on the wood floor.

Standing at his full six feet seven inches, I knew I wasn’t physically any match for him. However, I also knew every single person in that bar would have my back if me and my Slugger were to fail. He straightened his spine, but being the coward he is, he didn’t speak.

“You need to leave. You are officially banned from my businesses, in front of witnesses, in case you forget again.” Rocking my hips a little, I swung the bat in small circles over my shoulder.

“I didn’t forget,” he finally spoke. “I just didn’t think you were seriously going to turn away my money.”

The blood in my veins boiled harder at his words. “Are you implying something, Black?”

“Just that I’m a paying customer. Last I checked, you don’t give anything away for free.” He smirked, thinking he had me where it hurt. He knew I struggled to meet all of my responsibilities.

So I played it up. I let my eyes water a little, and my lip quivered as I dropped the bat to my side, relaxing my stance. He leaned closer to me. “But-but-but. . . ” Striking like a snake while his guard was down, I grabbed him by the gonads, twisting my wrist ruthlessly. “I don’t need your fucking money!”

The crowd that had mostly been silent up until then erupted. Some men groaned, most people cheered, and Emmett made his very tall presence known behind a crying Jake. I nodded, and he grabbed him by his neck, shoving his bent over body out the front door.

When I turned back to the bar, there were a handful of cheers, and I did a curtsy as the music came back up. Replacing the bat under the bar top, I caught the eye of my one night stand before he moved to sit back down.

Yup, Edward grew a pair and came back for round two, three, four…well, you get the drift LOL!

Anyone who’s ever suffered a long layover at a socked in airport can relate to Bella’s predicament, although I’m sure none of us was ever granted such a magnificent partner in mind numbin’ boredom LOL!

Across from my spot, a man was stretched out, already sleeping. On the floor beside him sat a bulging backpack resting against the seat and a battered guitar case. He was dressed in a white T-shirt and jeans, his feet clad in dusty work boots. The way he was curled up, his T-shirt had ridden up over his pants, exposing a wide expanse of his naked back. His jeans were pulled down, the waistband of his underwear peeking over the edge. Tilting my head, I read Fruit of the Loom written across the banding. Feeling like a stalker, my eyes drifted lower, settling on his ass. His well-shaped, very firm-looking ass. The angle he was bent in showed it off to perfection. Squinting my eyes, I could even see two dimples that rested just over the swell of his ass cheeks and the sudden desire to reach across and touch them made me actually sit on my hands so I didn’t do exactly that.

He was lying down—stretched out across a few seats. Maybe I should try doing that. I stood up and pulled on the wide, metal arm rail, but it didn’t budge. I pushed and pulled, but I couldn’t get it to move. I moved to the next set of seats and tried again. Obviously, some of them had to pull up so you could lie down. Ass-man had figured it out. Surely I could, too.

I circled around and warily leaned over the back of the seats he was sleeping on to see how the arm lifted. I was shocked when I realized the arm wasn’t missing. Mr. Ass-man was curled right around the metal—so tightly it was digging into his stomach. I frowned at the dark circles under his eyes, but understood better how he was able to sleep in such an awkward position. He was exhausted.

My gaze strayed over to my backpack. I wondered if I should cover him with my blanket and if there was any way of sliding the airplane pillow under his head, to make him a little more comfortable. I wanted to do something, help in some small way. Why, I had no idea, but the urge was overwhelming.

His eyes were now open—staring right at me. Wide, startled eyes, so green it was like losing oneself in a deep forest. I felt my cheeks burst into flames at being caught leaning over him and staring.

I waited for the anger. The yelling that would start any second.

Instead, his full mouth curved into a slow, deep smile.

“Hello.”

The next few hours entail monumental bondin’ that makes it imperative to choose a combined final destination!

Why is it that a beat up to hell and back Edward tugs at our heartstrings? Oh, and Bella’s as well…

My phone died right around the time I hit the corner of Chestnut and High. I wish I were high when another gust of cold wind flies up my skirt. Shivering, I cross the street, stopping right in the middle of the road when a moan comes from behind one of the parked cars.

“Hello? Is someone there?” Another moan. “Look, if you’re planning on attacking me, I’d advise against it.” Looking side to side, I noisily dig around in my purse. “I’ve got a new can of pepper spray and I’m not afraid to use it.” Key point being that it’s new.

Another moan comes out of the darkness before cheers erupt from inside the surrounding warm houses. I creep closer to look around the back of the car where I find a man sitting on the curb, his head in his hands.

“Hey, are you okay?”

With my finger firmly in place on the pepper spray, I move closer until I’m standing right beside the guy.

“Excuse me. Hey . . . ” I reach down and touch his shoulder, and he jerks away, looking up at me in fear.

“Oh, wow.” I automatically cringe, unable to help it when I see the condition of the guy’s face. He’s obviously been in a fight by the looks of that busted lip. His eyes are swollen shut. But what really worries me is the bloody gash on his forehead.

She insists on callin’ an ambulance to take him to the hospital and winds up goin’ with him. Then, she can’t get rid of him LOL!

“I’m sorry, Mr. Masen, but I can’t in good conscience let you go without someone to stay with. I just can’t.” The doctor repeats my words from earlier in the evening and Edward looks at me out of the side of his eye.

“Oh, no. Huh uh.” I simultaneously shake my head and wave the idea away with a sassy finger.

“What? You heard the doc. Only twenty-four hours and I’ll be out of your pretty brown hair.” He reaches up to flick a curled end and my mouth drops.

He cannot be serious.

Still haven’t found out who beat him up but I have my theories…make your own!

The fresh mountain air filled my lungs, and I could almost feel the cobwebs blowing away. Ahhh. Grown-up camp might even be tolerable if the other inmates could just learn to suffer in silence like me.

I didn’t want to completely lose the group, but as a kid, I had played enough hide-and-seek with my brothers to know a count to fifty was in order. I’d just reached “thirty-eight Mississippi” when I heard someone calling my name. Crap.

“Isabella? Isabella Swan?”

Not Mike.

“Yeah, I’m over here.”

“Oh, thank God.” Heavy boots jogged toward me, and I got my first close-up view of our shy hike leader as he dropped to one knee next to my pack. “Are you okay?”

Damn, he was gorgeous. Like, drop dead, but first tear off all your clothes gorgeous. Or maybe tear off his clothes gorgeous. Fit and tan and mountain-man scruffy, wild hair poking out all around the edges of his camo-patterned Red Sox cap. Outfitted in neutral tans and greens that melted into the earth, he looked like someone far more comfortable blending in than sticking out—someone like me.

A semicircle of sweat darkened his tan T-shirt, and the rise and fall of slightly labored breathing distracted me to the point where I couldn’t look away from that sexy chest. I couldn’t tell if he was out of breath from his jog or the anxiety of misplacing one of his hikers in his first half hour in charge. Either way, it was my fault.

His eyes were hidden behind brown-tinted shades, but I could feel him checking me out for visible signs of injury or worse—something he couldn’t see that might be even more dangerous out here in the wild.

Dayum, where the hell are my hikin’ boots?

The story is told mainly from Bella’s point of view, but for some reason Edward seems to think it’s okay if he interjects in the middle of each chapter, therefore each has alternating points of view—Bella/Edward/Bella.

At first it seems like such a rush, plummeting feet first into the freezing cold water. It makes me feel alive for the first time in months, but then my body turns numb and I feel nothing.

My heart is frozen, just like yours, but it’s not the same.

I don’t want to be here anymore.

. . . . .

Leaving you has solved nothing. Leaving you has only proven what I already knew: I am the very worst kind of monster, and I have all but killed us both.

You were far too young to die; you had barely begun to live. And I? I have lived long enough.

I don’t want to be here anymore.

Trust me…neither of them actually dies! Someone, and we don’t know who yet…she was abandoned by her maker, turned Bella and it’s drivin’ me crazy waitin’ for her to remember who she is and for Edward to learn she’s still alive!

Of course, whether he’ll be able to find her or not when he does is the question LOL!

Accordin’ to good ol’ Google:

MVP is an abbreviation for Most Valuable Player and is an award given to an individual player for their outstanding achievements during the season. In Major League Baseball, both the American League and National League award an MVP for the regular season. There is also a World Series MVP awarded to a player on the championship team. The regular season MVP is voted on by journalists who belong to the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA). Voting takes places at the conclusion of the regular season, and winners are announced after the World Series. The first MVP awards handed out after voting by the BBWAA in 1931.

No baseball yet…only 1 chapter posted so far, but you really don’t wanna miss this:

No more than six or seven years old, he stood near the door of the building, holding on to a red plastic cup, with a distressed-looking frown on his face.

“Oh, no! Mary! Thirteen!” the child cried out. Just a few feet away, a young woman with bright blue streaks dyed into her dark black hair darted in and out of the busy people who walked past her, squatting down and picking up colorful, bouncing rubber balls that rolled across the area. The two stood out in this white and black world like a pair of circus performers, yet no one but me seemed to even notice them.

“I’ll get ’em, Jackie!” the woman promised. “Here. Put these in your cup. There’s four.”

“Thirteen!” the boy moaned.

I watched the spectacle with curiosity. Obviously, the boy had been carrying rubber balls in his cup, and they’d spilled to bounce and roll across the area in front of the building. The woman was trying her best to collect each and every one of them, but when one of the small rubber missiles bounced off the toe of my shoe and rolled toward the street, I knew that unless I acted quickly, they’d never be able complete the boy’s collection. The ball had rolled over the curb and disappeared beneath a shiny black Sedan that was parked there. While it was nothing more than a twenty-five-cent toy that could be purchased in any turn-knob-style machine, it was obviously important to the child. He wiped tears from his face with the back of his hand while the woman continued her search for the missing toys.

“Here’s ten, eleven, twelve…” the woman counted, dropping the balls she’d collected into his cup.

“Thirteen, Mary! Thirteen!”

With a sigh, I stood and walked over to the curb. Mindful not to ruin my stockings, I carefully lowered myself to my knees and stretched my body forward like a cat, pressing my cheek to the warm concrete while I peered under the vehicle. Just as I thought, the ball had rolled to rest just behind the back tire. It wouldn’t be easy to reach. I pushed my arm out as far as I could and wiggled my fingers, smiling when I finally felt the rubber ball beneath my fingertips. I froze, however, when I heard someone clear their throat above me.

“Not that I mind the view,” a decidedly masculine voice spoke. “But would you mind telling me what in the hell you’re doing to my car?”

I closed my eyes and groaned, realizing that my bottom was pointed straight up at the owner of the vehicle that I was practically crawling beneath. Trying to muster up whatever dignity I could, I stood and straightened my clothing before turning to face the man who towered above me.

Oh, damn.

Now for a little reminder of these jewels of the past:

Abbracciare Il Cantante – What if Edward left Forks after his first encounter with Bella, and he never returned? Fate couldn’t keep these two apart. But meeting at a later time and place might have changed the nature of their relationship.

Click & Strum – Bella moves from Forks to St. Louis to share a luxury loft apartment, The Abbey, with her stepsister, Rosalie. Edward, Rose’s womanizing neighbor, is supposed to keeps his hands off…yeah, right!

Four Summers – Sun, surf and sand. Best friends, and best kisses. Broken hearts, broken ties, and dreams that can never be broken. A bounce through time between summers past, and somewhere closer to present-day. Every road we travel leads us to exactly where we are meant to be.

Green – What happens when lawn-boy, geek, and self-proclaimed social leper finds himself in a situation that shakes his comfortable invisibility? Will he stay green? AU- All human. 

In Vain – Bella is a girl who desperately wants control over her own life. Edward is a Volturi guard who is accustomed to being in a position of control. Together, they struggle with a force that neither of them have any control over, whatsoever. OOC, AU.

Love on Wheels – It’s fast… it’s fun… it’s 1978! The most ‘not-to-be-taken-seriously-fic’ that you’ll ever be tempted to take seriously!

My Escort – When Edward’s partial scholarship gets taken away, he reluctantly takes the advice of his roommate and gets a job at a high-class escort agency. Relax… it’s a legit company. He’s got nothing to lose. Or does he? All-human, OOC.

Ring of Stars – When Edward finally had the opportunity to present Bella with Elizabeth Masen’s ring, he was surprised to learn that the small black box held a far greater gift to him, than the delicate gold band that was nestled inside. O/S

The Best Man – Next-door neighbors home from college, reunited for two weeks of their summer break. Childhood memories and adult hijinks abound. Will a friendly competition strengthen childhood bonds? Or will it help to forge a new relationship between adults? AH/AU

Toye – Vampires like to play with their food. A campy and kitschy horror short-story that lets the men of the Cullen household be the monsters that Edward always claimed they were. Extremely OOC.

Ring any bells? Countless hours were pleasantly spent lost in each of these fics back in the day and I, for one, wouldn’t mind if Kat considered repostin’ one or two or ALL…no pressure *whistles!*

Happy Friday, y’all!

Yeah, this is what hooked me on The Alpha *THUD!*

“He’s here,” one of them whispered. I looked up to see Edward Cullen as he entered the room. He was wearing nothing, but a pair of jeans, showing off his muscular physique to the females of the pack as they drooled over him. His eyes scanned the room as if looking for someone. I sank further into the corner, I was hiding in, hoping I would go unnoticed and would be unable to witness most of the ceremony. You see, shifters weren’t so strung up about sex, not as much as humans were and tonight our alpha would claim his mate on the bed in the center of the room for all to see. It has even been known for the alpha to allow other members of the pack to join in, to show their appreciation of his chosen mate. I guess it was the human part of me that was repulsed by the idea. I didn’t see why they couldn’t keep that stuff private, but I guess it was part of their nature. It just wasn’t part of mine.

And it just gets better from there, if that’s at all possible! There’s chasin’ and catchin’ and claimin’ and markin’…at least on Edward’s part. Bella’s bein’ stubborn LOL!

I notice the silence, and see Emmett and Rosalie exchanging a glance. “What?”

“Edward, there’s no one better at what you do.”

“I know that,” I snap.

“And you’ve been doing it a long time, no breaks. Which is great for our pockets…”

“But?” I totally sense a ‘but’.

“Rosalie and I think you need a break.” He says it really fast; like he’s afraid I’m going to take offense to this. Which of course, I do.

“I don’t need a fucking break, Emmett. I’m at the top of my game. There’s no reason to stop as long as we have clients.” I pause, suddenly anxious. “We do have clients, do we not?” I look between him and the blonde who actually is our company accountant, as she narrows her eyes at me.

“Of course we do, Edward. People don’t stop wanting others dead, it’s human nature and it’s one we’ll always be able to rely on.”

“Then what’s the problem?”

Emmett clears his throat and perches on the front of his desk, his big hands squeezing the wood. “We feel it’s in the best interest of the business if you take a little rest, that’s all.”

“Have I screwed up? Gotten made? Left anyone alive that shouldn’t be? No. The answer to all three of those questions and your request for a break is no. The business is fine as long as we’re all doing our jobs.”

“Oh hell Emmett, if you won’t tell him I will. You’re turning into an asshole, Edward. You need a fucking vacation.”

So, out of all the exotic destinations in the world, which one does Edward choose? More importantly, why…

“Key West. I want to go to Key West.”

From Sharp Left Turn to Wanted, Fyrebyrd never fails to deliver a whoppin’ great yarn! Mating Deviation is her first venture into science fiction, a genre I loved for many years…way before fanfiction snuck up and changed my whole view of the written world LOL!

Dear Diary,

My name is Amelia, and today I watched the world end.

In the blink of an eye, I’d become a science experiment. My entire existence up to this point ceased to matter. Life on Earth was coming to an end; everyone I knew and loved would die.

And they did.

I watched as Earth disintegrated in front of my very eyes through the porthole of a spaceship transferring hundreds of passengers to the Tesla Enterprise. Everyone cried as they watched Earth end—with it, all their loved ones. I was sure everyone I knew was gone until the moment I was delivered to a pod for educators such as myself and was met, face-to-face, with Teddy.

Hope slowly began to restore itself.

I threw my arms around him, sobbing uncontrollably. He held me for what felt like hours, also crying silently. I then asked Teddy if he knew what they wanted from us, and he cleared the tears from my cheeks as he replied, “They want us to replenish the human race.”

I was born not a native of Earth, but rather one of the Andromeda Galaxy, as were my compeers and those before us. For the last one hundred and fifty years, our existence has continued to thrive on a system that consists of two missions: service and reproduction. As I am seventeen-years-old, I have already mastered my profession as a librarian in the Education Pod. Meaning, I have only one duty left to fulfill.

Our companions are handpicked for us from the Commanding Pod before we are even birthed. It is something we are taught to accept and embrace, for we would not exist if it were not for this predetermined copulation.

However much I tell myself that I have nothing to fear, there is an anxiousness that clings to me throughout the morning as I prepare for the ceremony. Jitters, I suppose, or perhaps I am just overwrought after learning that people like us, who were chosen to breed together, could do something more than simply coexist. I tell myself that it is absurd, and yet Amelia and Theodore Swan are proof of ardor’s existence.

However, Bella discovers an anomaly in the computer program that selects breedin’ pairs. This discovery will change everything…a change many people will reject unilaterally, especially those in power who are profitin’ from the status quo!

{and for the uncensored version on TWCS}

http://www.twcslibrary.net/viewstory.php?sid=9087

Someone in one of my FB groups was searchin’ for a particular fic today and I was reminded of this wickedly delicious story! Checked out the first chapter to see if it was the one I had in mind and COULD NOT STOP READIN’!

I am a Dom, and I love having control. I guess you can’t help the way your mind, body and soul direct you. I didn’t choose to be a Dom, it chose me.

Each time I find myself in a relationship, there just has always been something missing. It’s like I can’t find that other half to make me whole, or there’s always a piece missing.

I rub my face walking to the window where I can see the whole bar area and there’s a bank of monitors for viewing the entire club, including private rooms and secluded areas. You see this is Seattle’s most upstanding BDSM club. As I glance around the room, I see a young woman-girl who is looking lost. I let out a sigh and pick up my jacket. I hate the beginning of the new college season. We always and I mean always get the sorority or fraternity houses—sometimes both—sending pledges here as a joke.

It’s very clear that she has no idea where she is, or what she’s walked into by entering this establishment. Just as I reach her, another Dom speaks to her. I wait and listen, because you can tell a lot about someone from how they speak.

“Little One, are you here with anyone?” he asks keeping his hands to himself. That’s a sign of a good Dom. No one should never touch another Dom’s sub and just because she’s not traditionally collared, doesn’t mean she doesn’t belong to someone.

The girl looks around herself. “I am not really sure Mr…” her voice trails off not knowing his name.

I raise my eyebrows at her response. Where she was polite and respectful with her reply, it was certainly not a typical response for a submissive. This is just further proof to me that she doesn’t belong here, nor does she know what this place is.

“SIR!” he booms at her.

I roll my eyes at James. He’s a very old school Dom and expects everyone, even those who aren’t of our preferred lifestyle to bow at his feet. Other Dom’s and I have spoken to him before about this, but he just can’t keep a grip on it. As much as we would like, not everyone knows about or is into this lifestyle.

“I’m … I’m sorry, what? I mean, I’m a girl so why are you calling me sir?”

I bite back the chuckle, because she really does look puzzled by his response.

“No, Little One, you should say Sir when speaking to me? Now are you here with anyone?”

This time the girl shrugs her shoulders and bites her lip. I move over to them, knowing that James will just get more pissed off at her.

“You will show me respect.” James makes a move to touch her, but I grab a hold of her arm pulling her toward me. Fuck she’s really small. I notice how much, as I tower over her. I know that I’m tall standing at six-three, but I have a clear foot over her.

“James,” I say his name and James sneers at me and walks away. “You, come with me.”

The girl looks at me in shock and shakes her head as I look at her face. I can see that she’s a beautiful girl and she has really pretty eyes. I swallow trying to get my mind working again, because all it’s doing is trying to convince me of what I need. It’s like hearing a looped recording of, ‘You need to dominate her and fuck her into submission.’

Needless to say, Edward heeds the call to the satisfaction of them both!

Now, excuse me while I dive back in…

Happy Friday, y’all!

ROB ATTACK

Evenin’, ladies!

Today’s recs are so excitin’, I could hardly wait to bring ’em to you!

Along with two of our favorite authors, I have two others you may not have heard of but certainly won’t forget if you read their fics!

Now, it’s been a couple years but the dynamic duo of Drotuno and Jen Rar, writin’ as Sarge’s Girls, are back with a vengence *woo hoo!*

Sixth sense: a special ability to know something that cannot be learned by using the five senses. Humans use 10% of their brain, but it’s been proven that those with a sixth sense use more. Some wish to harness that power. With a target on us, sixxers are hunted as we try to stay hidden, blending in with the average world around us…when we are anything but average. AH ExB

Rated: Fiction M – English – Supernatural/Romance – Words: 5,109 – Reviews: 221 – Favs: 368 – Follows: 579 – Published: Jul 10 – id: 12042869

Eleven-year-old Edward and nine-year-old Alice find themselves stuck in a mental institution until Carlisle Cullen comes along…

“What you can do, Edward, is a sixth sense. It’s a part of your mind that works differently than most human beings. Alice’s too. There are more of us out there in the world than you think.”

“You?” Alice whispered, but a small smile curled her mouth as she saw flashes of his decisions to come here. “You can…sense us. Six…”

“Sixxers.” Dr. Cullen chuckled softly, tapping her chin lightly. “I can. Very good, Alice. And I knew I’d find two of you here.”

“No one should know. We’re freaks!” I snapped, starting to stand up.

“We’re different, yes,” he agreed, setting a hand on my shoulder. I wanted to flinch away from him, manipulate him into just finishing up on Alice, but my curiosity overrode everything. “Some will tell you we’re better, more evolved than everyone else. Others will tell you that we’re possessed by devils, but I personally will tell you that you can learn to control it, to hone your skills into something useful. There are some out there who will exploit what you can do. Some will use you for terrible things.”

My brow furrowed at that. “Like my parents.”

Dr. Cullen frowned. “What did your parents do, son?”

“They…they…wanted me to listen,” I told him, tapping my temple. “ATM PIN numbers, bank-account numbers, lock combinations. Then…then they wanted me to break open places. They wanted me to make people do things for them.

When we got caught, they tried to bribe their way out. No one believed them, and they were arrested. I was brought here.”

His eyes warmed to that. “You made that happen, didn’t you? Helped get them caught.”

I looked down at the floor and then out the window, where I could see what I’d done outside in the courtyard. It looked like a small bomb had gone off. Sighing deeply, I nodded a little as my eyes took in ripped-up bushes, bent and broken chairs and tables, not to mention a few kids still wondering what the hell had happened. It was mild in comparison to what I’d done to get my parents caught.

“I just wanted to go to school. I wanted to be normal. I hate what I am. My head hurts all the time. But they moved around so much, used me like some…some…trained dog.”

“It will get better, Edward. You can learn to control it. I promise you.”

I shrugged a shoulder, glancing toward Alice, whose mind was as quiet as her mouth at the moment. Except for one tiny vision she was mulling over. Dr. Cullen was taking us somewhere.

“Alice?” I whispered.

“Shh!” she hushed me. Edward, he’s a good person. He saves us.

Yeah, as Deb says, it’s kinda like Twilight meets X-Men meets her crazy mind LOL!

“Jesus,” Edward muttered. “Is it so hard to believe I’d want to go on a date with Swan?” A spur-of-the-moment bet will put Bella in a compromising position with the boy next door. They’ve been best friends since forever, so having his hand down her pants won’t change anything… Right?

One of my favorite genres is best friends who suddenly discover untapped feelin’s for each other resultin’ in major sparkage and GeekChic12 is a veritable maestro at writin’ sparkage LOL!

Some say guys and girls can’t just be friends, but I call bullshit on that little theory. Having grown up together and been there to witness all the embarrassing shit that goes on, there’s no way any of us had the slightest inclination to fuck each other.

We talked and joked about sex in a general sense, and I’d heard about some of their hook-ups, but that was it.

Edward, Emmett, and Jasper came in the door after going for a food run, laughing and razzing one another. Cullen’s face was crimson, and this intrigued me. I’d never seen him get truly embarrassed, except for that one time he spilled Sprite down the front of his pants in third grade and everyone pointed and called him Eddie Pee-pants for the rest of the day.

“You know it’s true, Eddie-boy,” Emmett said. “All the girls cream their jeans for you.”

I snorted. Loudly. Couldn’t help it.

I had so many memories of all of them, but Edward was my next-door neighbor, so I’d hung out with him the most. I’d seen him cry when his little colony of sea monkeys died. I’d seen him faceplant on the sidewalk after tripping over his own two feet. I’d been there when he first discovered one single hair at the base of his penis, and we’d both stared at it like the alien thing it was to us. It was nothing sexual. We were only eleven, and being the oldest out of our group of friends, he was the first to get any.

“What, B? You don’t think so?” Emmett asked.

“I wouldn’t say all the girls,” I offered with a raised brow. “And cream their jeans? Gross.” I gave a dramatic shudder as our Halo round ended. Most kills: Killer B.

I grinned as Jacob and Brady stalked off to the kitchen.

“You should let them win every now and then, B,” Jasper chided.

“The fuck I should.”

Edward laughed, plopping down next to me on the couch and slinging a leanly muscled arm around my shoulders. “This one doesn’t give an inch. Trust me. I know.”

I rolled my eyes and pinched his side, making him jump away from me with a girly squeal that made me snort again.

“Anywaaay,” I said as Edward sent me a mock glare but then moved back to my side with a smirk. “What were you guys talking about when you came in?”

“All the pussy Edward’s gonna get when you two go to UDub this fall.”

A pang hit my chest out of nowhere. What the fuck?

 

Lemme just say Edward had his epiphany way before Bella…she has some serious catchin’ up to do and he’s more than willin’ to help *wink!*

At first sight, the small village with its narrow streets and top-heavy fishermen’s cottages perched in tiers on the steep hillside, was claustrophobic and confusing, but Bella soon realised every path led to the main street and from there to the sea, and after a short walk she arrived at her destination.

She desperately wanted to stay and explore the rock pools and spend the rest of the morning enjoying the sunshine and the scenery, but her interview was looming. Reluctantly dragging her eyes away from the sea, she turned and looked up over the houses and shops nestled at the bottom of the cliff, to the narrow road which wound like a white ribbon across the grassy hillside, past the church on the outskirts of the village, all the way over to the headland, where a single building was visible.

Large, imposing and painted white, so that like the sea it was glistening in the strong sunlight, Bella recognised The Lantern House immediately, but had to shield her eyes with her hand to make out the glass dome of the observatory tacked onto the side, which gave the house its name. In the last two weeks she had spent hours on the net familiarizing herself with the area and somewhere up there Carlisle Cullen was waiting for her.

The Watcher is a quick read…so damn quick, I was readin’ the last chapter before I knew it and hadn’t even stopped to leave reviews *facepalm!* I shall be rectifyin’ that pronto!!!

He says nothing. He only looks at me, that half smile reappears, but it does nothing to calm my nerves. I want to run, but my flight instinct is paralyzed by the pure fear that radiates down to my wobbly knees.

“Who are you?” I ask. My voice is as shaky as my legs.

“Think of me as … The Watcher,” he replies after some thought. He smiles wider, as though pleased with his answer.

I look up at him, his eyes hold mine. They are so yellow they are almost gold. With flecks of what look be dark red and amber.

“Your eyes, why are they that color?”

He only smiles wider in reply. My hand is still clasped in his and I realize then that he has moved closer again. I step back. My hand slips from his but he looks unaffected by my distance. He simply stands there and watches me. Perfectly still, perfectly silent.

“So what is it The Watcher does exactly? Well, besides stare at people and be creepy?” I half joke. I am still on edge but I don’t want him seeing the fear that he has created in me. I have to keep it light, work my way out of the conversation. Out of the forest. Back home.

“I protect the things I watch over,” he explains simply.

“Why?” I ask, intrigued.

“Because they are mine.” His voice is deeper, his tone authoritative.

See? See? THAT’s why I didn’t stop to review!

I flushed and opened the stall door with an elbow, stepping out while simultaneously trying to fasten the damn button on my pants.

A sound of shuffling feet made my head spin towards the urinals, as I came to the horrifying conclusion that they were no longer unoccupied.

A tall man with a lion’s mane of hair was using one of them, although he didn’t seem to notice me, and I could – thankfully – only see his back. I could still take a few steps to the left and sneak out unseen. I should probably make work of buttoning up my jeans; I thought and looked down while taking a step back.

“Oh! Fudge! Crap, crap, crap!” I exclaimed as my heel roughly hit the metal corner of the stall. Clearly I should’ve paid more attention to where I was going. Why were these stall frames made of metal anyway?

That sh- stuff hurts!

The man, no doubt startled by the sound of a woman’s voice in his bathroom, instinctively turned around, eyes wide, mouth open, as, simultaneously, my eyes took him in completely and both of us realized that his hand was, in fact, still holding his…penis.

Helluva way to meet the love of your life LMAO!

Was he as frozen as I was – was that why he still hadn’t put his…thing… away?

What the hell?

I glanced back down.

Still a penis in his hand.

I jerked up my eyes.

Still the same horrified expression on his face as his eyes bounced from my face to my cleavage to my hand with its fingers on my button fly.

Fuck.

I guess this is why men and women don’t share bathrooms.

In the chapters followin’, our horny lovebirds manage to find somewhere new to have sex, each location more outrageous than the last LMAO!

I was incarcerated for six years. Now I’m free, back in a town that hates me, and all I want is a piece of cherry pie from the chief’s wife and a piece of ass from his daughter. Both are sweet enough to land me back in jail, but I’m Edward Cullen and I don’t give a f**k! An ExB story that’s worth doing the time for.

If, like me, you FLUV a bad boy Edward hard, Cherry is for you! It’s not marked complete and, much as I’d like more, I think it’s perfect as is…you be the judge!

There are a lot of people I’ve known since kindergarten and some I’ve stolen from. A few patrons lose their appetite and leave. The rest stare and make their distaste for my presence known. The murmurs of my crimes and rumors of crimes I didn’t commit are all I can hear.

“Looks like things haven’t changed much,” I say.

“Yeah, and just like six years ago, your broke ass is still bumming off me and bunking on my couch,” Jasper says to be an asshole.

Turning my attention away from my adoring fans, I grimace, really not looking forward to springs stabbing me in the back.

“Fuck. You’re making me miss my prison cot.” I look down at my watch, slightly more irritated with the diner’s staff.

“Jesus. We’ve been here for over ten minutes. They’re not going to serve us, are they?”

“I told you not to come here.”

“Unfuckingbelievable.” I slide across the seat to get up when a petite brunette comes from around the counter toward our table. “Finally.”

My annoyance subsides as I sit back down, but it’s quickly replaced with fucking amazement when her eyes lock with mine. She’s beautiful, and not the kind of beautiful where I’ve just gotten out of the slammer and any chick will do. No.

This girl’s the kind you go sober for. Even before speaking a word, I decide she’s going to be my wife.

“Hi there,” she says, pulling out the notepad from her apron. “The name’s Bella. I’m going to be your server today. What can I get for you?”

More than a piece of cherry pie, that’s for damn sure!

{Yeah, this was the fuckhawt gif I found to make the banner with *THUD!*}

If there’s one O/S I was happy to see expanded, it’s The Body!

As the new VP of Swan Industries, Bella is out with a couple of her new employees for a little bondin’ over beer!

The only person we hadn’t talked about was Edward, before I could stop myself I blurted out the question that had been on my lips since we had been talking in my office ” Well that covers just about everyone except you Edward, so do you have a partner or boyfriend I need to know about?”

Three things happened at once. My hand flew up to cover my mouth as I tried to stop the words leaving, and in doing so knocked the pitcher so it swayed dangerously. Emmett started to laugh with a mouth full of beer so it sprayed all over table and Edward. He jumped up to get out of the way of the spray and knocked the table causing the pitcher to finally fall over. Luckily there wasn’t much left in the pitcher so there wasn’t much damage done, Emmett and I were laughing hysterically at the chain of events and Edward was trying to wipe off his shirt front with the napkins on the table.

“Fuck fuck fuck” he said as he dabbed at the wet patch on his shirt and pulled it away from his skin.

I stopped laughing instantly, and looked at Edward. I had heard that exact expression last night several times and I would know it anywhere. The tone of his voice, the inflection in the second ‘fuck’ as the tone rose and then fell for the third word.

Could it be him?

Oooh, I was dyin’ to choose some fabulously graphic text from The Body but decided against it…you know, in case there are any underage lurkers visitin’ today LOL!

Enjoy the recs and…

Evenin’, ladies!

Some great fics have crossed my path recently and I’m so excited to share some of them with you!

Now, when I opened the first chapter of Inhuman Nature and read Kristina’s AN, I damn near fell off my chair laughin’! Not that she’s writin’ a funny fic for us but…well, here!

A/N: Oh, man.

So, here I am, doing another thing I swore I would never do. Vamp fic. Whoa.

A note. These vampires are not quite canon in characteristics. The story is AU, so some things don’t line up with strict canon.

Dedication: To all of you who pushed me, over the years, to do a vamp fic. I hope this one works.

And lemme just say right now…it fuckin’ works!!!

This is the story of two vampires. One sinister monster who collected the humanity of others. One who struggled to find the humanity he lost. This is the story of one human. Victimized by one, saved by the other, thrown into the middle of a myth, saddled with a secret terror of one monster she could only share with another. You don’t need to be human to be humane.

“Charlie Swan’s daughter is missing,” he said, saving Carlisle the trouble of speaking. “And that blond bastard was interested in another meal from Forks.”

His father’s jaw went taut. Edward saw Charlie’s pale, tortured face.

“She’s only been missing twenty-four hours,” Edward said, quick to jump on a chink in Carlisle’s armor. “We can still help her.”

Carlisle flinched inwardly, but his gaze didn’t waver. “All right.” He stood up, his arms crossed as he faced him. “And how many of us are you willing to sacrifice?”

Now it was Edward who flinched. “What?”

If he went off after this devil and the innocent girl in his clutches, he would do so at the most certain sacrifice of his family or himself.

Oh,no! Poor Bella is the cream fillin’ stuck between two halves of an Oreo cookie…okay, only if one of the halves is not black *scratches head!*

Still recoverin’ from a traumatic attack, Bella escapes to the tiny coastal town of Tempest Point where she hopes to find peace! What she doesn’t see comin’ is the town’s sheriff..a tall, green-eyed, gun totin,’ hunka hunka burnin’ love whose long hair is tucked up in a man bun under his Stetson!

Edward sat up in bed. Another dream. For the last few days it was always the same. Milky white legs wrapped around his waist. Frenzy. Warmth. Never ending need. Never ending pleasure. Never ending pain. His nature was too rough, too violent. He sat up screaming.

Moonlight filtered through the window. Calling to him. Hypnotic rhythm. His control was definitely slipping. He needed a way out.

He could still smell her, as if she were sleeping next to him and not far away in her own bed. Peaches and femininity. His hands fisted the sheet covering his naked body. This is what hell must feel like. He laughed in desperation. The moon laughed at him. He needed to get out, run with the moonlight, make the exertion drown his need, his thoughts.

“The one you feed.” His father’s words in an involuntary whisper. Great! Now you’re even speaking to yourself!

He jumped out of bed, out the window, over the deck, onto the path up towards the meadow. Running at full speed through the forest. So fast all he could feel was the chilly night engulfing him. Running away from his thoughts, from her impossible perfume, from the need to tear down her run down excuse for a house, rip apart the furniture, tear her from that dingy place. And lock her where he knew no one would harm her.

He stopped just at the edge of the meadow. Never daring to enter. He hadn’t dared disturb it in four long years. His heart drumming along with the moon’s mockery. He wouldn’t cross the boundary tonight either. Instead he rubbed the tattoo in his chest, mumbled the old prayer, and sat down at the edge of the forest, watching the fireflies dance in front of him. Out here, her perfume didn’t exist. The only real thing was the moon’s leash around his heart lulling him back to sleep.

Did I say “burnin’?” Yeah, our boy’s body temperature does run rather high. And what’s up with those luminous green eyes?

The answer isn’t going to be as obvious as you might think LMAO!

As if thinking of love in Paris reminded him of his work, he turned back to the hotel across the street and once more raised the heavy camera with its powerful telephoto lens, pointing it at the shuttered window. As he gazed through the lens, the curtains were drawn back and the shutters flung open. A man and woman stepped out onto the balcony to watch the sunrise, their faces illuminated by the rising sun. He focused the camera on the two faces, and clicked.

The man had a shock of messy hair in an unusual reddish color, his features handsome even from this distance. The woman, a tall statuesque blonde, flashed a provocative smile. He took her in his arms and bent to kiss her.

Click.

As they kissed, Charlie snapped several more excellent pictures of the two. By the time the woman had lowered her veil and returned inside, he knew his wait had been rewarded and he had obtained the proof his client needed.

Satisfied, he began the long trek down the stone stairs. The sun was now fully free of the horizon, spreading its warmth over the Paris streets. Slowly, the city was coming to life, the calls of the street vendors making themselves heard in the stillness, the early morning traffic beginning to wend its way along the narrow streets.

It did not take long to reach his small apartment, where he went straight to the closet he used as a darkroom and began developing his film. Within less than an hour he had several excellent 8 by 10s that he hung up to dry on a bit of clothesline strung from wall to wall in the narrow closet. He held one up, the developer dripping off the paper. Yes. A perfect likeness. His client would be quite satisfied.

“Dad?” his daughter Bella called. The two of them lived alone; she had just turned eighteen, and in a couple of weeks she would be performing with her orchestra at the theatre. She studied the cello, and his heart nearly burst with pride every time he heard her play.

“I’m here, Bella,” he said, exiting the darkroom and closing the door behind him carefully, one sample photo in his hand.

“Did you close your case?” She spotted the photo he had brought in and swooped down and picked it up. “Ah! What a handsome man!” She turned large and very curious brown eyes on him. “What is his name?”

Charlie frowned. “A sweet and innocent girl like you should not be concerned with the likes of a man such as this.” He plucked the photo out of her hands. “Although I have to admit he is responsible for a good portion of my income.”

“I think I recognize him,” Bella said, placing a finger on her chin. “Let me see…”

And because I owe you a COMPLETE fic rec…

When Bella is separated from Alice on the plane to Dublin, she’s not sure what to make of the ridiculously handsome man in the seat next to hers. Little did she know, Fate had a plan…

“Please remain in your seats!” The pilot’s voice had gone from calm to frantic and I doubted any of the passengers were listening.

Edward was already in action, pulling out our vests from beneath us and helping me into mine. Our eyes locked and all I could see behind his illuminated eyes in the dark was Alice’s scared face.

I whimpered in pain and above me, I heard an undeniable shrieking, crackling sound that sent a shiver down my spine. I watched in horror as the plane started to break in two, down the centre, dividing up the passengers and sending the front of the plane downward.

“NO!” I screamed through my mask but nothing came from it. The oxygen wrapped up the sound and I choked for breath, finding no comfort from the sensation of O2.

Water hit my face and for a brief moment, I thought we hit the ocean but it was only the rain as the sky was revealed above us, capturing my attention before the front of the plane snapped off completely, dropping from sight away from me… and I was away from Alice.

“Alice!” I ripped my mask off. “Alice no!” Tears sprung to my eyes as I wrestled with the wind, rain and my fucking stupid seat belt. “Alice, Alice please no, God no!”

“Bella!” I heard Edward but he was too far away in my mind. “Bella focus on me, listen to me!”

“Edward!” I choked on another sob, my hair thrashing in the rain. “She’s gone!”

“Bella we have to jump alright? We have to jump or we’ll be crushed by the weight of the plane! Do you understand me Bella, we have to jump!”

It didn’t register that I was under water until I lost my ability to breathe and my lungs screamed for air. I swam the only way I thought was up and was scared I was only pulling myself deeper into the icy water. I gasped and found that no water was filling up my throat and when I opened my eyes, I saw the stars reflect over the angry waves and Edward screaming frantically at me.

“I’m going to get you onto one of those broken pieces alright?” Edward shouted too loudly in my ear. I nodded, numb to the cold and let him drag me in the water to lift me onto a large metal fragment. I lay there floating in the water, hearing slightly his instruction of me not to move while he looked for something sustainable to lie on. I barely understood him but I was far too tired to care.

“Bella!” Edward called out and I lurched upright, almost falling off the floating metal. The moonlight shone down on it and I saw the unmistakable word “exit” written on it. I realised I was sitting on the door of the plane. My stomach lurched.

“Bella,” Edward called again and I saw him in the water between the waves, pushing a raft like object towards me.

“What is that?” I said, my voice hoarse from all my screaming.

“It will keep you out of the water, that’s what,” Edward shouted and he finally reached me. “This will help us keep afloat and keep out of the rain. I can’t do much about the waves but it will do.”

I wanted to ask so many questions: why he was so calm, how he knew this raft thing would help and why he wasn’t mourning the probable loss of his best friend. Edward, I decided, was superhuman.

Edward jumped in after me and I moved to give him some room, which wasn’t an awful lot and found myself sitting on some uncomfortable items. “I grabbed them from the wreckage,” Edward explained. “It was only a couple feet away. A flair gun, some food, a first aid kit I found floating and a brief case. There’s a shirt in the case you could use as a blanket.”

I gaped at him, worried he couldn’t see me in the darkness. “How did you… how can you think of all these things right now? Are you even human?!”

I shook and my teeth chattered together, which gave Edward reason to pull me against him, wrapping his arms around me and the fact he cared enough to keep me warm made my crying begin again.

“Hush, sleep, Bella,” were the last words I heard before everything turned black.

Human or not, Edward has skills they’re gonna need to survive this harrowin’ ordeal, which has only just begun!

Okay, your turn! What fics had you bitin’ your nails and burnin’ the midnight oil this week?

Happy Friday, y’all!

Alicia’s first AN…

This is going to be a little different, I think. Bella is very focused, almost abrasive in her manner unless she is with a client and, at the beginning, unable to form any sort of personal attachment.

It is an Edward and Bella story but he won’t appear for a while so don’t worry. When he does show, it will alter her carefully constructed world.

Ha! That’s puttin’ it mildly *gigglesnort!* Now, since my banner pretty much gives it away, let me introduce you to HHD {Hot Homeless Dude}!

He was obviously homeless and had been so for a while by the look of him. His clothes were stained and dirty, his hair unkempt and looked a really funny colour and his matching beard was as straggly.

I ran past him the first time. I was too mad with myself to approach him but by my second lap I was ready so I slowed my pace as the bench came into view. He was still in exactly the same position and for a moment I wondered if he was sleeping, if he was I didn’t want to wake him so I slowed right down and came to a stop in front of him.

His breathing was even and deep. I couldn’t help but stare at the dirty worn coat that moved with his chest, he seemed so relaxed and at peace that I decided to just leave him alone. I moved closer to him as I had the urge to tough him but I stopped myself at the last moment. As I made to move away I must have startled him because he opened his eyes and looked straight at me. They were the purest shade of green I have ever seen, crystal clear white surrounded a crisp green iris and a dark black pupil. It was the same strange stare from our previous meeting. I waited for him to acknowledge me but once again he just stared without speaking.

I took the initiative and spoke first ” Hi, I’m Bella and I need to apologise to you.

One thing’s for sure, I’m dyin’ to find out HHD’s backstory!

Bella Swan has been slowly destroying herself since Edward left her, but its all about to change when she goes too far and overdoses, ending up as Carlisle’s patient in the ER…

Rated: Fiction M – English – Hurt/Comfort/Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 14 – Words: 52,499 – Reviews: 269 – Favs: 255 – Follows: 486 – Updated:Jun 22 – Published: Oct 19, 2015 – id: 11568333

He was nearing the end of his shift when it happened.

“Dr Cullen,” a young red haired nurse called, as she approached where he stood at the desk. He had just handed over his notes so that one of his current patients could be discharged. She was out of breath when she reached him.

“There’s another overdose patient,” she panted, “Sorry, but we need you.”

He knew why she was apologizing, his shift was supposed to end very soon. Most doctors would have been irritated and tired this late into their shift, but he wasn’t most doctors. He could work indefinitely, and if he didn’t have a wife at home, he probably would have. He nodded to the nurse, and followed her direction to where the patient was being worked on.

As they walked, the nurse explained the situation.

“A car just pulled up outside and dumped her here,” she told him, “she’s got no ID and we don’t know what she’s taken. Looks to be a mixture of drugs and alcohol though.”

He knew what would have to be done, he’d known almost as soon as the nurse had mentioned that the patient had overdosed. They reached the patient then and he almost froze at the scent of the woman in front of him. She had lost weight, had partially dyed hair and a piercing through her nose and more than one in her ears. In the two years since they had moved from Forks, leaving her behind, she had changed herself almost beyond recognition. He would never forget her scent though, despite what his son had decided to do, she would always be a part of their family. It hurt him to see what she had reduced herself too, but his hurt fueled his actions. He had to save her.

These first few paragraphs grabbed me hard and I wait anxiously for the drafts of each new chapter to land in my inbox ’cause guess who’s the beta!

In a dystopian world where civilization barely survives, Edward has spent his whole life training to protect his society, his family and the girl who has captured his heart.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Sci-Fi/Adventure – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 5 – Words: 10,322 – Reviews: 141 – Favs: 137 – Follows: 291 – Updated: Jun 19 – Published:May 24 – id: 11962912

The Commander calls my name and I step forward. With a steadying breath, I return his gaze and nod slightly. I watch as the knife cuts into my palm and the blood begins to flow from the wound. I raise my left arm to the people facing me as I begin to recite my Oath.

“I, Edward, son of Esme, daughter of Emily, daughter of Emma, daughter of Elaine, daughter of Eleni of the house and lineage of Elizabeth, do freely and without reservation pledge my Oath to the people of this valley, that I will serve and protect them, that I will forego all selfishness and place their needs before my own, that I will remain loyal and steadfast until my service ends. This I swear with my blood which I shed this day.”

I am calm when the Commander turns to the audience and announces that I have been assigned as a Ranger. A murmur makes its way through the crowd, and I see a few looks of shock and dismay. My parents come forward and begin to give me my Ranger’s gear. In addition to a new sword, my father straps a short knife around my thigh. He loops a long, lethal bullwhip around my left shoulder and a quiver of arrows and a bow on my right shoulder. Mother attaches the Ranger insignia, and Alice pins my Oath Taker medal to my tunic.

My gaze shifts up to my brother, who is staring back at me with a look of such sadness that my breath catches in my chest. As I watch, he begins to stand and, as though in slow motion, the rest of the Protectors stand the audience and all the cadets rise to honor the vow I have just made. They know, as well as I do, what this assignment means. I glance back at my Father, whose jaw is clenching to hide his emotion. My Mother’s eyes are glassy with unshed tears and my little sister Alice is… smiling?

I’ve just been given an assignment that is tantamount to a death sentence, and Alice is smiling.

If THAT doesn’t make you sit up and take notice, I don’t know what will!

“One hit will make you change your mind.”

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 3 – Words: 10,672 – Reviews: 392 – Favs: 397 – Follows: 667 – Updated: 19h ago- Published: Jun 10 – id: 11990800

And now for something completely different…

I wave the gloves at him. “What are we doing with these?”

“We’re going to transplant a few of the hybrids to get them ready for their flowering cycle.”

“Cool.” I bob my head. “But again, in the interest of full disclosure, I’d like it noted that no plant has ever survived in my care.”

“Duly noted,” he calls from over his shoulder as he leads us over to a dirty counter top.

Normally whenever anyone talks at length about anything science related, after about thirty seconds they sound like the teacher on Charlie Brown to me. I admit most of the shit about stable root systems and proper soil saturation goes right over my head. But what I don’t miss is the way his eyes flicker to mine when our dirt covered fingers brush repeatedly in the soil or the easy smiles that come from the playful nudges and relentless teasing.

“Congratulations,” he says when we’re done. I quirk a brow at him earning me another smug grin. “You had a successful interaction with a plant without a fatality.”

“Only time will tell.” I walk back over to the E.C. Kush area. “When will my plant get the purple flowers on it?”

“Within the next thirty to forty days or so.”

“So pretty,” I murmur, softly touching the fine leaf hairs, feeling his eyes on me. “Too pretty to smoke it.”

“One hit will make you change your mind.”

Something about the way he says that makes my insides flip. “Probably would.”

As a child of the Sixties, I thought I knew a lot about weed, but this fic is an education and a half LMAO!

Well, these are my picks this week…what are yours?

Happy Friday, y’all!
