Summary: Feature

A story about love, about death, about keeping secrets, and dealing with the consequences.  Bella and Edward meet at a hospital when she is diagnosed with a life threatening disease and he is recovering from knee surgery.  She confides her fears to him; he changes his life because of her.  This is a story about their journey through the confusion, awkwardness, pain, and beauty of first love.

Photobucket

Excerpt from Chapter 2:
“What are you most afraid of?”  Edward asks one last question.

“I'm not afraid of dying,” I answer truthfully.

“You're not afraid of dying?” he repeats, incredulous.

“No.  There's so much more.  I'm afraid of losing my hair but that's not my biggest fear.  I'm afraid of leaving my mom and dad all alone.  I'm afraid that if I survive, I'll never have children of my own.”  I yawn again.  Edward is quiet and I think for a moment that he's fallen asleep.  “Edward,” I whisper, in case he is asleep, “What are you most afraid of?”

“I'm afraid I'm falling for you,” he whispers back so softly that I'm unsure if I've heard him correctly.

Here is your teaser for the next chapter.

Chapter 23: California Dreamin'

The rest of our drive to Marcus’s office remained The wall that I had started to peek over was back up again.  Jane’s instant formal tone pushed back any iota of progress I had made at cracking her shell.  I sighed, resigned, and sat back into the car cushions.

After a few minutes of silence, I turned towards her, my voice firm and unwavering.  “Fine.  If this is how it’s going to be between us, then I need to make a few things clear.”

Her head turned slightly towards me, the only indication I was likely to get that she was paying attention.

“Bella is flying out in a few weeks to spend Christmas and New Years with me.   I will be relying on you to make some necessary arrangements.”

Jane’s face remained stoic except for a faint tic in her cheek when Bella’s name was mentioned.

“I have not failed to notice how you react when I have spoken about her.  I do not understand what you could possibly have against someone you have never met, but I will not tolerate any disrespect or rudeness to her while she is here.  You are to treat her as you treat me.  Is this understood?”

She nodded stiffly.  “Yes.”

“Good.”

I left a review already. Forgot to mention that I live in Ohio, so this story is cool. I live more near Columbus though. Really cool for that reason but also a good story. I enjoy reading it and look forward to the next chapter! :)



Author's Response:

Thank you!  I'm glad you are liking the story when everyone is nearby.  Did you like the fact that Bella went to OSU?  (I almost went there... I was accepted and everything but didn't end up going... loong story)  I saw your other review as well, I'm glad you liked Thanksgiving... I was afraid of too much fluff but everyone seems to like it so far.  :)

Here's a teaser for Chapter 19: Thanksgiving

I scrolled through my phone through my list of contacts as I sat on the living room couch.  I needed to call in a few favors.  I said a quick prayer in hopes that he hadn’t changed his number before dialing.  I hadn’t seen him in years and it had been awhile since the last time we talked.  I genuinely missed his friendship but our lives when in different directions and we grew apart.  The phone rang only a few times before a deep, but friendly voice answered.

Here's a teaser for Chapter 19: Thanksgiving

“Hello?”                

God, he sounds exactly the same as he did in college.  “Hey Garrett, it’s Edward Cullen.  How are you doing?”

“Cullen?  How the hell are you doing?  I haven’t heard from you a long time!” Garrett exclaimed, with a slight southern twang to his voice.

“Yeah, it has been awhile.  Things were weird for awhile but I’m doing much better.”

“That’s a good thing. So what do I owe the pleasure?” he asked, curious and friendly. I couldn’t help but smile.  He was always right the point.

“Well, I was hoping you weren’t busy on Friday and felt like jamming with me, like old times.”  I held my breath and hoped, waiting for his response.

Glad to see a new chapter! Loving this Ohio story! We usually don't get much of a mention here. Getting ready to head up that way in Sept. for vacation, so can't wait! Cedar Point! Looking forward to reading more! :)



Author's Response:

CP is pretty awesome.  I haven't been out there for several years, mostly because my husband doesn't like roller coasters.  But we'll get out there again.  Glad you are liking the story!

Here is a teaser for Chapter 20:

“So, what do you guys normally do to warm up?” I asked.  I had a routine down, but everyone’s methods were different.  Since I had been playing earlier as well, I felt I was pretty well warmed up already.

“Eh, we just pick a song we all know,” Colin drawled. 

Rhys nodded.  “How about ‘Brother?’”

Colin nodded and Garrett cocked an eyebrow at Rhys’ choice but went along with it.  I shrugged my shoulders.  I figured this was a test and I was ready to prove myself.  It wasn’t a song I necessarily would’ve picked to warm up with but it was a good song.  It was aggressive and had some really great lyrics.  I hadn’t played it in awhile, but I figured I’d be able to get into the groove easily enough.

Satisfied, Rhys counted off the beat with his drum sticks and I started the guitar intro.  About two measures in, Rhys started the drum line, and two measures after that, Garrett tore into the booming bass riff.  The melody took me in as I sang the opening lyrics.

Author's Response:

Thanks!  Glad you liked it and for your patience for Ch. 21.  For your patience...

Here's a teaser for Ch. 21:

“Hey there, you’re Bella, right?  The owner of this place?” a guy asked as I walked past him. 

I shot him a look while I gave the drinks I was holding to a patron.  As I walked back toward him, I noticed that he had a small tape recorder cupped into his hand, like he was trying to hide it.

“Yes, I’m the owner of the Midnight Sun.  Can I get you something to drink?”  I placed a napkin down in front of him.

“Water will be fine, thanks.  I wanted to ask you a few questions,” he started.

I grimaced when he asked for water.  “Well, as you can see, I’m pretty busy so I don’t have time to answer a bunch of questions.”

The man was undeterred.  He leaned forward, pushing the recorder he thought I couldn’t see, closer to me.  “It’s just a few questions.  It won’t take long at all,” he said with a smile, a smile I’m sure he thought was going to win me over.  He was wrong.

I brought his glass of water over to him and accidentally spilled it all over his hands.  “Oh, I’m so sorry, sir.  I have no idea what happened!” I gushed.  I grabbed a few bar towels and started blotting the spill as the man’s smile quickly turned to irritated anger.

“You dumb bitch,” he hissed as he tried to keep as much of the water from his recorder as he could.

Thank you!

Here's a teaser for Ch. 22:
Finally we were all ready and gathered up our things to leave.  The moment we walked outside, camera began to flash and people were yelling.  Edward instantly wrapped his arms around and pulled me close to protect me.  Jacob started yelling back at the photographers while trying to shield Angela.  The police escort was also yelling and tried to block any potential shots.  It appeared that the paps had been hiding in some of the bushes, waiting for the right moment to get the perfect shot.  Angela didn’t say anything as the commotion went on; she just stared wide-eyed at the chaos surrounding us.

“I want them off my property!” I yelled angrily, as I blinked back furious tears.

The cops nodded and quickly approached the small group of photographs as they continued to yell at them, advising them to leave or get arrested.  Most of the photographers took the hint and took off.  A few more rabid peps tried to give the cops the run around, moving evasively about the parking lot while continuing to take pictures of us.  Jake took off with the cops to try to help them round up the paps.

By this time, Edward had escorted me to my truck with Angela in tow.  Angela’s eyes were huge as she watched Jake and the cops.  Her face was pale and her hands shook slightly.  I wiggled out of Edward’s grasp to touch Angela’s arm.

“Ang, are you okay?”

Angela continued to stare out into the parking lot, like she didn’t hear me.  I gently shook her arm as I called her name again.  She blinked a few times before turning to focus on Edward and me.

“This is what you have to go through all the time?” Angela asked Edward, her voice shaking.
Edward nodded solemnly.

“How do you deal with this?” she whispered.
