Summary:

He's a Rodeo Cowboy and she is a local girl. Can they fall in love at the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth?

Bella Swan knows there is one distinct advantage to living in the city of Calgary Alberta. That advantage is the Calgary Stampede; a summer event that brings her city to life for eleven days every July. With hundreds of things to do it was never boring. You could watch cowboys and cowgirls at the rodeo, ride the rides of the midway, test your skills at the games booths, or watch a spectacular fireworks display. At the Stampede there is something for everyone. This year, Bella’s something comes in the surprising form of rodeo cowboy Edward Cullen. Edward has travelled to Calgary for one purpose – to win the “Richest Ride in Rodeo”, but this year he is about to win something even better.

Neither was looking for the other, but if the timing is just right, the midway can be magical.

I have to say I hate Victoria.  What a lack of couth. Screaming at the top of her lungs in public to humiliate Bella.  Like she had a right to be that way.  She got the woman fired from her job.  whatever new life Bella could start didn't need to be destroyed or previous dirty laundry aired out in a public area like that.  She hasn't seen these people in months, how dare her accuse Bella of stalking them.  I was so proud of Edward tearing into them and letting them know that she was an invited and ticketed guest and they were the outsiders.  Especially when he told them she was his DATE and they had better be gone when they returned.  Gotta love that cowboy.  I knew he would be sensitive to the situation and be angry with the jerk.  Knowing Bella was a home wrecker type and was too good for her own good.  Looking out for her student's life style rather than her own and her career.  I liked what he told her about their growing feelings and not to be afraid or leary of them.  He's not there to hurt her, if he was he wouldn't be the southern gentlemen he has been.  He would have been doing nothing, but bedding her and the hell with introducing her to his family.  That's not the way he is, he's not trying to ride her and then flee to the next rodeo on the circuit.  He wants to let things flow, a little fear is good, but not enough to stop you from living.  If you do you're missing the best part of life.  Remember that's where his dad met his mom.  Looking forward to new chapters.

Edward's a great rider in more ways than one. Great night with Bella but embarrassing for her the next morning. Thank goodness for Rosalie and her willingness to help by going with Bella home to change to rejoin the family. Non judgmental. Edward saved himself a bullet there.  First place at the end of day one without constant practice and stress. Edward has found a new per-rodeo event routine.  A good night of serious loving with Bella. Looks like he's got himself a new way of life and outlook on bareback riding preparations. Looking for celebrations Cullen style for day one victories.  Enjoy your vacation and we'll hear from you when you come back.

Bella's mom puts everything into perspective.  Bella realizing that Edward is her happiness.  She needs him and to find out that he has left from the competition to find her to prove she is number 1. Bella goes in search of him.  Too bad she didn't stay where she was for Edward to find her.  Would have saved a lot of running around and almost being arrested.  But they found each other and told each other how they felt.  Bella had Edward compete and he's number 1 for the day.  Yeah.  Then Rose goes into premature labor and a baby boy has been added to the family.  Loved Edward's shock at being not only the godfather, but having his name being the baby's middle name.  Edward and Bella both realize and have admitted they are better together in spite of what may come for them.  Looking forward to the last day's competition and for them to finalize where they are going from here.

Looks like Edward stepped into it big. Too much testosterone flying around. Each trying to exert dominance. Bella isn't going to be happy with either of them making decisions for her. Edward mentioned she might not be around in September, they had talked multiple times of her moving to Texas. So the notion is out there with nothing firmly decided yes/no. Edward wants her to think about it. Who knows after a couple months she might not be able to sleep/live/exist without Edward's presence and vica versa. Looking forward to the skinning alive both men will be receiving verbally by Bella.

Can't blame Bella for feeling a little doubtful regarding what might happen based on her previous experiences. Only differences and it's a big one is she's dealing with the Cullen clan.  As Rosalie alluded to Cullens fall fast and hard.  When they fall that's it there is no going back.  Bella is afraid she has changed Edward from his previous devotion to his sport. In reality she has woken him to what life is really all about.  He has the talent that he has taught himself and perfected over the years.  Practice yes is necessary, but it's not something that has to be constant 24/7.  He can have what he has seen with his brother Emmett and his sister Alice a balance of their sport/profession and a life.  Bella has opened his eyes to that possibility.  I know Edward's serious about the request to come to Texas. I knew it was coming.  I'm kinda glad Bella brought the subject of their future up now rather than wait for the last day.  It gives her time to think about it and make the right choice.  Move to Texas and come back to Stampede Days and enjoy them with Edward whether he's competing or not that will just depend on the circumstances at the time.  She already fits into his family nicely.  The changes is Edward are all good, it's what his family was hoping.  They have all been so worried about him before he met her. 

Enjoy your time and will be patiently awaiting the next installment and beautiful Bella's response.

That boy's mommy sure taught him right.  Edward was the perfect gentleman to Bella from the moment he pciked her up at her apartment all through their time on the Midway until he dropped her off at home.  Treated her like the lady she is with respect and space.  He knows something is bothering about her recent past and has let her know whenever she needs to talk about it, he'll be there for her.  Bella has a lot of recent pain of loss and humiliation which she didn't earn.  She was tricked and deceived.  Liars always have their come uppance.  Sooner or later he will have his.  I think Edward is sensitive enough and caring of Bella to listen and understand.  Thought it was cute Allice was waiting at the end of the night for a progress report.  Edward doesn't kiss and tell.  Another gentlemenly trait not revealing what's going on between himself and his lady. Definitely one of my favorites to receive notices in my email of a new chapter.  Always brings a smile to my face and I can't wait to read the next installment.

Glad Bella spoke to Jacob, if anyone he had the least authority to speak on her behalf. At least Edward had requested her to come home with him to Texas more than once and they are a couple. Jacob was just a teacher mentor during her student teaching period. She was right the decision to contact the school or him for a job or move to Texas or stand in a desk job are strictly hers.  All hers and no one elses. Bummer than Edward had a bad ride, but it really had nothing to do with the disagreeable discussion with Jacob it was due to the way the ride progressed.  Edward decided a no score was better than any extensive injury. Bella again will be blaming herself for upsetting him and causing him some serious distraction for his poor performance.  Edward just needs to find the middle road like his family has been telling him between his career and personal life.  He doesn't want to leave Bella behind, he's found her and wants her with him. Angela gave her another perspective she didn't think about either.  No matter where she lived her hometown would always be a part of her, but home is where the heart is. Great point.  Looking forward to the girls night and boys night out.  Also wild card Saturday and Edward's performance on his ride.

Edward has already made up his mind, Bella is more important to him than winning any rodeo.  While Bella loves him enough to let him go so he doesn't have to give up what she thinks is his first love rodeo riding broncs.  Little does she know. Edward's family is trying to get his head into the game.  Edward is missing Bella and needs her with him.  Bella refuses to be anywhere near the grandstands to prevent Edward any distractions. She needs the Stampede to get her mind distracted on the midway.  She has refused Alice to join the family.  Edward has left the wild card trials and gone to look for Bella.  Bella is walking on the midway.  Boy is she going to be surprised to learn that she is Edward's #1 priority over everything else in his life.  If she's in his life then everything else will fall into place after that.

Very happy Edward showed up to spend the night with Bella. Neither one of them wanted to be apart for the entire night. Too bad neither was thinking completely with their brains though. Edward should have told Bella she didn't need to take the pill after. Even though she didn't want another James' incident, Edward would never have treated her the same. He would have taken the responsibility. Embarrassed for Bella when Esme and Rosalie took to medical trailer. Having to admit in front of boyfriend's mom and sister in law about taking the pill after. Humiliation.  At least Esme and Rosalie left so she could finish the exam in private.  Edward worried and even more upset with himself that she took the medication and it made her ill. Hoping it doesn't mess too much with his head and his ride. Because if it does will make Bella pull back even more thinking his poor performance is all her fault.

Sober Edward was reminded to treat the girl he likes correctly.  Treat her like a lady not something to use and discard until the next rodeo.  Great advice from big bro although all of us were probably looking forward to some good Edward and Bella/condom time together.  I guess we would rather see the gradual romance between them.  The heat gradually spiralling upward until the end of the Stampede to find out what Edward and Bella will do when it's over.

loved Edward playing with the children in the pool.  so cute.  He will make a great dad.  He deserved all the teasing Bella gave him in his room after the teasing in the hot tub with those old men.  Looking forward to the next chapter for hopefully the continuation of the hard sexy cowboy loving and Edward in his bronco riding events.

Date: August 18, 2012 Title: Chapter 13: Chapter 13 - What now?

Edward was serious about her moving to Texas, Bella was the one who thought it was too soon.  He wants to try to make a long distance relationship work.  Great job of hanging in there to convince her.  At least being with the other rodeo families she is able to see that it works with others.  The reason Edward made the mental mistake wasn't because of Bella it was because he was angry at his sisters for interferring with his relationship with Bella.  He was concerned that their interference might have planted too many doubts into Bella's mind that might cause his relationship and happiness with Bella to fail.  Even his sisters that morning in the lobby knew that he was pretty upset with them and that could cause him to have a bad ride.  Bella, of course, will take the blame on herself and be another reason to start withdrawing from him.  Which will only cause him more mental anguish to cause harm in future rides.  Edward needs to make her understand what upset him was that his sisters need to butt out of their business.  They need to make the rules and build their relationship and how it will work whether it's in Texas, on the road, or long distance.  Edward won't ride well without Bella being strong in his corner and in his heart.

The Stampede Days do sound very intriguing and exciting. Being from AZ where ranches are quite common in rural areas, cowboys are common, not rodeo cowboy as a norm.  They do arrive here for the rodeos that float through here.  They are small probably in comparision, but Prescott Days up north is always around the 4th and Payson has them too.  Just a couple small towns here that have their share of events of barrel races, bronco roping, bull wrestling (I have to say I can't remember seeing that one -- that would be exciting to see), also chasing and roping a steer.  You haven't given any clues as to Edward's specialty so hard to choose.  Bronco and Bull riding events are wicked with the cowboys hanging on.  Have seen actual rodeos in Phoenix as well sponsored by Jaycees too.  The events are thrilling to watch.  You have had Bella and Edward bump into each other twice now.  We have Bella's reaction to Edward already.  She's taken by his eyes and gorgeous face already.  Can't wait until she finds out he's Alice's brother.  Looking forward to more midway games, rides, food, rodeo events, etc... during the Stampede Days.  Will Alice invite them to join her family for the parade?  Can't wait for the story to continue.



Author's Response:

Here in Calgary is similar, we have cowboys, but not really a whole lot of Rodeo cowboys. They come out for the Stampede though! Our cowboys are probably more like yours, farmers and ranchers. Calgary is basically in the heart of Canadian Cattle Country, (We actually do refer to ourselves as cow town, and love the nickname). I love the small town rodeos and events too. I was just at one about a half hour out of the city last weekend. You get to see some awesome events in a smaller closer setting. (Not that I don't love the Stampede...cause I totally do). Calgary is pretty big, but by no means the biggest, they just have the most prize money. It's not an actually pro event (not part of the tour that leads to the national finals) it's by invite only, and you compete only for money, not rankings.

I hope you enjoy, and keep reading. I'll get a lot more into the Stampede...specifically the rodeo very soon.

Steer wresting is intense, it's over in about 3-4 seconds, but the cowboy does literally slide off his horse and wrestle the steer to the ground. These cowboys are usually like 6'5 and huge! so Emmett fit perfectly into that event. Riders (Bull, bareback, and saddle bronc) tend to be smaller.

Thanks for the great review, it makes me so happy to see how much you are enjoying the story.

Talk about a couple of pills, Jessica and Lauren.  If they were hung by a new rope they would still complain.  Are they ever happy about anything?  Have to nikpik ever little detail.  If they didn't want to go to Stampede, expect to get wet, dirty, or experience the country feel, why did they bother going?  It's not the prom, it not's clubbing, what did they expect?  If I was Bella, Angela, or Ben, I would want to get the story from people who are in the know about rodeo events. Besides listening to those Texan drawls all night would make me drool.  Especially coming from that gorgeous green eyed face. Edward riding bareback --- looking forward to that event.  Sounds like Edward's fascination in Bella is getting deeper too as hers is for him.  Emmett sure loosen him up with shots.  Female bartender giving free shots was she hitting on Mr Gorgeous too.  Since Emmett was a married man, must have been Edward.  Wonder how many seconds until Mike and Tyler go flying off the bull.

Actually I don't think you were cruel at all, I'm glad it was lemony goodness.  I agree with you neither of them are the one-night stand types.  One or both of them might have regretted going to that extreme when sober.  Bella's hurt face when Edward got up afterwards and put his boxers backon said it all.  She felt like a one-night stand.  Edward wasn't treating her that way, he had already told her outside whether she invited him up or not it wouldn't be the last time they were together.  They had made a connection, they both felt it. Angela encouraged her to go for it.  Along with the other women of the group.  Alice was already encouraging Edward to go for it too. She likes Bella already. The only thing Bella forgot to do was text Angela she got home okay.  Angela's going to be worried about her.  Of course, she'll probably think Bella hooked up with the gorgeous cowboy. Now Alice will wonder about Edward even though she encouraged him to get laid to relax.  Emmett will never let him live it down especially if he's not at the parade and can't be found in his hotel room. Both Alice and Emmett will figure Edward went home and stayed with Bella. Bella has Alice's phone number thanks to Jasper since both girls were pretty bombed.  Glad the drinking helped to loosen Bella up enough to dance and have some fun.  Both she and Edward need to loosen up and have some fun.  She almost opened up and told Edward about her scandal. I am personally appalled that the school district didn't even take her testimony into account about what happened.  Bella has had a lot to endure, she definitely deserves some happiness. A roving cowboy traveling the circuit might be the answer if she gets to travel with him.  It's not like she's has to work and since she's not teaching, she's not doing what she really enjoys.  Looking forward to the next chapter.  What will sober minds and a new day effect Bella and Edward.

From the time little Edward was akid he really liked Bella.  Talk about a big tease. Wouldn't admit it was him that really liked Bella had to always make it a Bella thing. Bella you're thinking of me, a little drool at the side of your mouth. Doing anything to get arise lout of her. Any reaction is better than none. As if they were fooling anybody around them, they all knew Edward and Bella had it bad for each other. I'd say it's about time they finally got together. The two of them were about to internally combust into flames. At least now they can burn together in pleasure and eventually in love.

Very cute and sweet. Little Mikey sure enjoys pushing his mommy.   The groundwork and feelings for Edward and Bella to be together were already established over the last three years. Edward had been in love with Bella for quite a while, it just took Bella a while and Mikey to open her eyes to her feelings. Now Mikey wants a sibling by summer, looks like slowness between Edward and Bella making themselves a twosome might be escalating if that goal will be accomplished. Or he'll be learning some serious facts of life. Very funny. Precocious youngster.

What a dilemma. Jacob accused of a murder to his girlfriend's brother, Seth. Such a sweet young man. Who could possibly want to harm him. It's to get back at Jacob, of course. But it also is hurting Leah. Sam is the obvious since he used to date Leah and doesn't like her dishonorinf the tribe by dating a half-breed among other things. Someone wanting to get back could even be trying to get compensation for Edward Sr's behavior as well. The fact that Sam was so violent makes things leans towards him. Looking forward to further chapters as the mysteries unfold.

What can I say, but Edward really needs to be more careful. Even if he did use a condom with Tanya, where was his head with Bella. Twice now. I really can't blame Bella fair how see felt 4 years earlier. I would have probably felt the same way. Granted about not telling Edward he was a father was a low blow. She was hurting, thinking he was cheating on her when she wasn't around. Then she's pregnant, serious trust issues. Having Edward around would be constant reminder of that pain. Pushing the rest of the Cullens was for the same reason. Easier to leave and start from scratch. Now she's in the same position only the witch Tanya is back claiming she's having his baby. Not telling Bella another child was on the way and the fact she was moving to Seattle. She won't leave Edward's place. She's a stalker she hasn't changed. Even though its obvious Edward still has feelings for Bella. Bella needs to be on her guard. Edward keeps screwing up royally. At the rate he's going Bella will never be able to regain her trust with him.

Like Edward has any rights where Bella is considered. He isn't free and dangling himself to Bella isn't fair. Taking her within minutes of being in her apartment without protection was reckless. Bella may love him, but his withholding the truth from her isn't giving her a chance to make the right decision for herself.

Loved the premise of this story.  Great new angle for how Edward and Bella meet for the first time. Also the circumstances surrounding Edward's situation when he falls for Bella.  Hard choice of Bella's to stick around, but since that second time was done without protection could be the reason Addison arrives on the scene.  Or just Edward's idea he has to see Bella again on her night off.  Edward will see her in spite of general opinion.  James is just thinking of Bella as a normal stripper supplementing her income with one night stands, but that is not who Bella is at all.  Since Edward is only her second time at having sex with someone. Will be interesting to know how Bella will react once she first learns Edward is a married man.  It will be hard to keep the others from repeating the information to Tanya about Edward's cheating in Vegas especially if they know he continues to see Bella.  Looking forward to future chapters.

Edward is still a rat. Leading bell on and constantly canceling along with breaking her heart over and over. Hopefully he'll be honest and tell her everything. If not he's being entirely unfair to Bella by dangling her.
