Chapter 19 ~ Pic and Chapter Teasers

Chapter 19


Bella turned, modeling the black dress that showed slightly more cleavage than she was comfortable with. Esme sat between Edward and Jack on the larger couch.

"I knew it would fit perfect, Bella! You're going to knock his socks off!"

Out of the corner of her eye, Bella noticed Edward's uncomfortable look at his mother's comment and wasn't sure what to make of it.

"Do you really have to go? Why can't you just stay home with me and Dad?" Jack frowned. 

"Sorry, kiddo. I'm just going on a date. I'll be back," she laughed. Jack narrowed his eyes.

"Fine, but you better be back by ten, okay?"

Bella shook her head and laughed. She looked over at Edward when she heard his chuckle and gave him a questioning look. He smiled and shrugged. 

A moment later, the doorbell rang and Esme excitedly pounced to answer the door.

Bella ran her hand over the front of her dress nervously. She looked up and noticed that Edward was staring at her.

"What? Do I look okay?"

He smiled uncomfortably and stood up. He walked over and touched a strand of her hair.

"You look better than okay, Bella. You look beautiful," he whispered.


  1. OMG I can't wait to read the update!!!!! I wonder who she is going on a date with? Why is Esme so excited, doesn't she want Bella with her son? Oh My, I have to find out what this is all about.... I hope Edward stands up and makes some kind of possessive manly gesture indicating that Bella is his to whom ever is at the door for her. You know one she doesn't see him making and one that Jack approves of. It would be so funny if Jack politely adds that she will be coming home to his dad and him, so it won't be a late evening to this fella.....I'm all giddy inside dear, I can't wait until Friday!!!

  2. who is she going out on a date with???!!!!

  3. Holy hell!!!! this is so interesting, i can't wait to find out who is the unlucky guy.

  4. Oh Esme, only a mother would know the exact buttons to push to make her son act. Can't wait!!

  5. *sigh* I love how you can read my mind sometimes, Jenn! <3

  6. Ummm yea she's totally going on a date with Demetri... He's the only one I can think of besides Laurant back in WA that she's met who was obviously interested... I don't know why she would say yes when she's in love with Edward, but my guess is that it's a Esme intervention to get Edward to really see what's in front of him to act...

  7. im loving Jenn idea about Jack...
    Boys are so silly they always need help from there mommies to figure stuff out

  8. I just love this story so much!! It's so sweet and loving!! I can't wait to find out who Bella's date is and see what Edward does. I really hope he makes some kind of gesture to let the guy know that Bella will be coming home to him and their son. Can't wait for the update!!!
