See, there’s this girl who rides the bus to college with Edward every mornin’ but he’s too damn shy to talk to her until…
POSTED 12:08 PM ON THE RED STRINGS OF FATE MESSAGE BOARD
But there was something different about this morning. There was an unfamiliar rider that apparently decided to start the weekend (very) early. He reeked of alcohol and staggered onto the bus. I don’t know how he paid his fare, or why the driver let him on, but there you go.
He began leering at all the women on the bus, and honed in on my pretty girl. He stumbled over to her and began addressing her very loudly, calling her disgusting terms, and using foul language.
I was cowering against the window, with my fists clenched – I didn’t know what to do! This guy was drunk, and twice my size!
But when he began pawing at her, something in me snapped and I couldn’t watch anymore. I stood and walked down the aisle. I could feel everyone watching me. I grabbed the man’s shoulder and turned him around so he wasn’t facing her anymore. I told him to leave her alone. He laughed at me and stepped forward to fight back. I held up my hands, forgetting my phone was in one of them, and he shoved me, making the phone drop with a sickening clatter as I could hear it break. He stepped forward again, at exactly the time the bus took a wide turn, and he lost his balance and fell, hitting his head hard against the metal pole on the way down. It was hard enough to make a loud clang and I’d be surprised if he didn’t have a huge bruise tomorrow.
The girl had been hiding behind her book and finally looked up at me, those big, brown eyes shining with thanks. I could barely speak to her, but she gave me her number on a torn sheet of loose-leaf and said she wanted to thank me for what I did by taking me to dinner. I mumbled that I’d like that, and then we were at her stop. She smiled and told me to call her to set up a time, and then disappeared in the crowd.
I reclaimed my poor phone, and the rest is history.
So my question is: what do I do now? Call her? Text her? What do I say?
OMG! Watchin’ poor Edward wrestle with all the well meant advice will leave you breathless with laughter LMAO!
Read Red Strings of Fate to see if he got the girl!!!
If you know me at all, you’ll know baby Edwards and Bellas are my Achilles Heel!
Today I’m drawing a bird. It’s a blue one with a yellow beak and orange legs. Mama’s asleep in the house, so I tell my friend all about the blue bird.
“This is a magical bird. It’s five years old, just like me ‘n you. It’s magical ’cause it’s very big and very strong. It can talk,and kids can climb on its back. We should give it a name. What should we call it?”
“Um, how ’bout ‘George’?”
I stop coloring and look around my small space. Sometimes I talk to my friend, but she’s never talked back to me before.
“No, ‘George’ isn’t magical enough,” I say.
“‘Kay, what about, um…’Abracadabra’?”
I frown because my friend doesn’t sound right. I look around again.
“How come you sound like a boy?”
“Um, ’cause I’m a boy.”
“But you’re supposed to be a girl. And you can’t talk because you’re not real.”
The boy voice sounds very sad all of the sudden. I don’t know what’s happening, but I don’t anyone to be sad.
“Okay, you can be real. What’s your name?”
“Edward.” He still sounds sad.
“I’m Bella. Are you five like me?”
“Um, are you invisible?”
“Then how come I can’t see you?”
“‘Cause I’m on the other side of the fence.”
Damn! I just wanna grab poor, sad little Edward and run like hell!
This one’s gonna break my heart, I just know it *sigh!* Then again, those stories that touch your heart in any way are the best!!!
What fics have your hearts thumpin’?
Happy Friday, y’all!
