Chapter 18 ~ Pic and Chapter Teasers

Chapter 18


"So, then, you'll meet with me? On Friday?" He asked, sounding hopeful. 

Bella swallowed and closed her eyes, pushing past her fears to answer his question.

"Yes, I'll meet you."

"There's a coffee shop, at the Drake Hotel, called Lavazza. Does two pm sound alright with you?"

"Sure, I'll be there then."

"Thank you, Ms. Swan, you won't regret this."

"I hope I don't," she whispered to herself after hanging up.

Chapter 17 ~ Pic and Chapter Teasers!

Chapter 17


"Good morning, Esme," the handsome gentleman spoke softly.

Bella noticed Rosalie's eyes widen and Esme's posture stiffen. Alice shot her a confused look and all Bella could do was shrug slightly.

Esme took a sip from her water glass before she turned and smiled vapidly at the couple standing off to her left side.

"Marcus, Diane," she said. The man's face fell slightly at Esme's cool tone. 

"Esme, please," the woman said as she placed her hand on her husband's arm. 

Esme's eyes flash angrily for a moment, before flicking her gaze to Bella.

"This is not the time, nor the place for this discussion," she spoke with an eerily calmness.

"But Victoria-" 

Bella gasped and covered her mouth as Esme cut off the woman.

"Do not," Esme spat angrily. "Do not start this conversation right now. I guarantee it will end badly."

The man's gaze had fallen on Bella when she gasped and he continued to eye her curiously, as if he knew her from somewhere. Her eyes met his sea blue ones and she couldn't help but fall into their warmth. She wondered briefly if this handsome, kind-looking man could have spawned the devil in red-headed flesh.

Chapter 16 ~ Pic and Chapter Teasers

Chapter 16


She was happy and content to not open her eyes and just languish in a morning daze. She could hear the last movie they had watched the night before playing in the back ground. After watching one of Jack's favorites, Toy Story, they popped in The Lion King. Jack had passed out shortly after Scar killed Mufasa and Bella followed not long behind him. The movie must have played on repeat all night, but she wondered briefly why Edward hadn't turned it off.

"It's our motto," she heard Pumbaa say on the tv.

"What's a motto?" Simba asked.

"Nothing. What's a motto with you?" Timon replied.

That part of the movie never failed to crack her up. She giggled and felt an arm wrap around her waist. Surprised by the movement, her eyes opened slowly and connected with smiling green ones.

"What's so funny?" Edward asked in a voice that was deep and gravelly from sleep.

Outtake: Save Me San Francisco Teasers

Not 100% sure when this be ready to post, but I'm throwing up teasers with Chapter 16 this week! I'm shooting to have it done by the weekend, maybe early next week?

Outtake #5 ~ Save Me San Francisco


We Took the Highway to the one,
Up the coast to catch some sun
That left me with these blisters on my skin.
Don’t know what I was on,
But I think it grows in Oregon,
So I kept on goin going on right through.
I drove into Seattle rain,
Fell in love then missed the train
that could have took me right back home to you.

I've been high, I've been low, 
I've been yes and I've been oh hell no!
I've been rock ‘n roll and disco,
Won’t you save me San Francisco?

Fandom for Preemies

Interested in a special, one-of-a-kind, unique Outtake from Parachute? How about probably the *only* Jack POV?

Well, that's what I'll be contributing to Fandom for Preemies! The fundraiser starts November 1st! 

I've never really given a lot of thought to writing a JackPOV, but after some careful consideration and a pretty decent outline, Jack's POV will be donated to the Preemies cause! I've sorted it out as a 3 sections/parts (~2K words each): '05, '08 and '10 (current day), all tying together around a specific theme, Victoria.  

Blinky made by the awesome RoseArcadia!

From the Fandom For Preemies blog:

Preterm birth is a serious problem affecting children across the world. Every year over 20 million children worldwide are born prematurely. Over 1 million of these children will not survive. 1 in 10 of those who do survive will face life-long health complications and risks directly associated with their preterm birth, including serious complications such as cerebral palsy.

The reality is frightening, but it's not hopeless! Thanks to the work of the March of Dimes and its global partners, the survival rate of premature infants is higher than it has ever been.

During Prematurity Awareness Month this November, Fandom for Preemies, with your help, will raise funds to support the March of Dimes as they work to eliminate this global issue. The March of Dimes is the world's largest nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. In 2009 alone, they contributed over 20.3 million dollars to eliminate preterm birth, birth defects and infant mortality across the globe.

In thanks for your support of this worthy cause, fanfiction authors across the fandom will donate one-shots, story outtakes and original works for a compilation. Those who donate a minimum of $5 to the March of Dimes during the month of November will receive this compilation in appreciation.

If you would like to sign up to contribute an outtake, one-shot, or original fiction, please see the Author Sign-Up page.

Chapter 15 ~ Pic and Chapter Teasers!

Chapter 15


"Bells, it's not your judgement that I'm worried about. How can you trust these people? You don't even know them."
Bella stopped and took a deep breath in through her nose.    

"I know them well enough, Jazz. I know that that man out there loves his son desperately and has been in heartache for five years. I know that Esme and Carlisle are two of the kindest people that I have ever met. Jack has an entire family that loves and adores him. They never asked for any of this!"
Bella's chest was heaving after her rant. Jasper looked at her in astonishment.
"Are you finished?" he asked coldly.

Bella shook her head and sighed. She stepped closer to him and pressed her palm to his face.
"Jasper, I love you. You're like a brother to me. I'm thankful to have you in our lives, but you can't protect us from every single thing."

"That doesn't mean that I wouldn't die trying, Isabella."
