Sorry I’m late with today’s post *pouty face!* But, lucky for me, it’s still Friday in the time zones east of here LOL!
Since I was only able to organize text and visuals to rec one fic, I made sure it was a good one!
Now, if you were followin’ the comments from last week’s post, you probably saw our sweet Zveka rec The Vagabond by Ellen92!
Well, havin’ already read so many Homelesswards recently, I checked out Ellen92’s profile to see what else she had in store and found five fics…ALL complete!
Then my eyes lit up when I read the summary for…
Rated: Fiction T – English – Romance/Hurt/Comfort – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 53 – Words: 78,319 – Reviews: 1,781 – Favs: 413 – Follows: 290 – Updated: Oct 18, 2012 – Published: Jun 14, 2012 – Status: Complete – id: 8217088
If there’s any story for which I’m a total sucker, it’s one where Edward is either physically or mentally challenged! Watchin’ him persevere and overcome is immensely satisfyin’…well, not quite as satisfyin’ as a damn good lemon, but you know what I mean LMAO!
“Freak!” he whispered acidly in my direction, his eyes boring in mine. I quickly looked at my feet, avoiding his poisonous gaze while I kept walking towards my first class.
Yes, I was highly aware that I was the school freak.
Freak, mute, loner… I’ve heard it all. Every insult had been thrown my way. Not very often luckily, but every once in a while, just to remind me of my place within this school system, I guess.
But I tended not to react to it. I ignored it. All of it. All of them. And I was good at it.
Oh, yeah! Our boy was very good at bein’ invisible until…
After I had collected my books, I reached behind me to take my jacket from my chair, only to realize it wasn’t there. My brow furrowed in confusion.
When did I last have it?
I was mentally going over my day, trying to remember when I could have lost it. And then it hit me. I must have forgotten it in the lockers room after PE… That was the only possibility. I threw a quick glance at my watch and realized that if I would go pick it up now, I’d be late in math. Not gonna happen. Guess I’ll have to go get it after school.
Who knew the simple act of forgettin’ his jacket would change Edward’s life forever!
I quickly walked through the building to the boy’s lockers room. I was just going to snatch that stupid jacket of the rack and speed home but as I passed the girl’s lockers room, I saw that the door was slightly open, only by a few inches, but enough to be able to peek inside. It wasn’t intentionally that I looked, but when my eyes fell on a figure inside, I couldn’t look away.
I was lost as well, trying to take in her beauty. But then she suddenly turned around and looked at me, her eyes widening as she caught me staring at her almost naked body. My brain started racing at a hundred miles an hour as the initial shock in her eyes changed into white fury. I was caught red handed.
I had failed to be invisible.
Yeah, that didn’t go over too well with Bella!
“What the hell?” I yelled, in a reflex covering as much skin as possible with my hands.
His eyes widened in fear as he realized he had been caught before he quickly turned around, as red as a tomato, and fled out of the hallway.
He was already in the parking lot – which was empty by now – when I caught up with him.
“Who do you think you are?” I shouted, still walking hurriedly towards him. He stopped abruptly and slowly turned around, fear still evident in his eyes, but I didn’t care. He has harassed me so I had every right to shout at him.
“I’m… I-I-I’m-mm…” he stuttered.
To see if his life changed for the better or for worse…you’ll have to read to find out Bwahahaha!
Lookin’ forward to hearin’ what fics you’ve been readin’ this week!
Happy Friday, y’all!
