Follow Professor Swan as she flees her academic life in Massachusetts and goes on the lam. But when her truck breaks down in a small North Carolina town, will the love of a simple man and the friendship from a couple of bat-shit crazy waitresses be enough to save her? “We ain’t Flo and Alice, Hun, but we’re all you got.”

Every school in the United States, and most likely, in the world, has a beloved educator, bar none.

From the smallest elementary school to the largest university, there is that one teacher, counselor, professor, or college Dean, to whom everyone gravitates. It’s almost as if they have within their very beings, a magnet that draws students inside their offices for deep discussions about deteriorating grades, or for a nonsensical discourse about the questionable entrées dished up weekly in the student dining hall.
His students (for it is most often a position filled by a man) simply adore, no, revere him.

He is the man about campus, the person you want to be, or failing that, wish to be with; a true legend in the making.

His colleagues attempt in vain to emulate his style, and pattern themselves after his character, but unfortunately for them, they fall short, abominably.

He is in a class of his own.

He has that certain something, which the French call Joie de vivre, a joy of living, an exultation of spirit, if you will. It can never be imitated or learned regardless the effort one employs.

It is simply innate.

At Haworth-Adams, where I am a Professor of Literature, we had James Witherdale.

First off, I was struck by the truth about beloved educators! We all have/had them! So, what happens to make Bella run away screaming?  You’ll have to read to fine out *wicked evil laughter!*

And, in case you don’t want to wait until WtWAB#U is complete, Jane-with-a-y has 2 complete fics on her profile!

Bella sat there unmoving, her arms folded in front of her, moodily looking at the wall, instead of the Native American sitting across the small table. She silently cursed herself for the millionth time, as she heard him ramble on, trying to get her to speak. She had taken her black Mercedes this morning and peeled out of the house, without the driver or any of her bodyguards, and now she was regretting her decision.

For the last hour, Jacob Black, her childhood friend, the one she made mud-pies with, was trying to convince her to confess against Edward, against the Cullen family; the head mafia family of the entire US.

Bella could feel her heart thumping loudly; she had to remind herself to breathe. She struggled to remain unmoved, to maintain the perfect mask she had been wearing since she came here. There was nothing the Cullens were not involved in; they were into everything- arms and weaponry, drugs, oil, money laundering- if it was illegal, the Cullens did it.

Except one thing. One thing that Edward had promised her the family would never get into. He had promised her that no matter what happened, he would never get into the thing that changed her life in a second, had taken away her parents at just twelve years of age and thrown her into the world of crime.

“Human Trafficking.”

Holy crap! I had so many questions at the end of chapter 1 and I can’t wait to get the answers *squeee!*

Unfortunately, this author has no complete fics on her profile so it’s either dive straight in or wait LOL!

This was going to be a fresh start; a new beginning, in a far off place. But what happened that night, on a dark road near Maxwell changed everything for Bella.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Drama – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 22 – Words: 82,264 – Reviews: 1,609 – Favs: 692 – Follows: 1,146 – Updated: Nov 23, 2014 – Published: Dec 2, 2013 – id: 9894117

We had been on the road for more than four weeks, slowly making our way from a small town near Atlanta to the newly opened Oklahoma Territory. Having been recently hired as the sheriff of a small, but growing town, my Pa was looking forward to a fresh start for the two of us.

My mother, Renee, had died in childbirth, leaving a grief-stricken husband to care for a tiny, newborn girl. Of course, he had no idea what to do with a baby, much less a baby girl, so I grew up being entertained by the town drunk in the holding cell, and the occasional thief or gunslinger when they were caught. These circumstances did nothing for me socially, and I became the outsider, the strange girl who spent her time in places a lady should never be.

Without even realizing it, I shifted in my seat once again, causing Pa to glance over to watch me as I rubbed my hand across the back of my neck and rolled my shoulders.

Clearing his throat, he tried to distract me.

“This will be good for us, Bella. Who knows, we might just find you a man.”

So, we know what brings Charlie and Bella to the frontier town of Maxwell, Oklahoma, but what about Edward?

 Dr. Cullen dropped his gaze to the table, frowning for a moment before clearing his throat. When his eyes met mine, they were blazing with an intensity I had never seen.

“My name is Edward, and I prefer that to Dr. Cullen, at least from your lips,” his eyes dropped to my mouth for a moment before returning to hold my gaze once again. “I moved here from Chicago just over a year ago. My parents still live there, as does my sister and her husband. I enjoy the challenges life in Maxwell brings me, and have no desire to live in the big city again, as I am quite content to care for the good people here. I have never had a wife or children, and will be twenty nine on my next birthday.”

He placed some money on the table before he stood and offered his hand, “I truly believe this will be good for the both of us, Bella.”

What the hell? How did she wind up with Edward and where’s Charlie? This is Hopesparkles’s 3rd fic, the last two completin’ in 2012, so I’m excited to take this ride with her!

WIP or complete, what fics have you been readin’ this week?

Happy Friday, y’all!
