Chapter 3 Teasers!

Chapter 3


"Have you had any famous hook-ups at all?"

Bella pursed her lips and nodded. "Just a couple. Most of the guys that I've dated are behind the scenes types."

"What about James Tillman?" Alice piped in.

Bella sighed, her mind filling with thoughts of her closest friend. "James is... complicated," she trailed off, refusing to take the bait and share any unnecessary details of their relationship. His privacy and trust was not something that she was willing to compromise for the sake of "girl talk." No matter how much fun she found taking part in it was. She had never had the opportunity to have any girl friends before. Going from being Emmett's best friend to surrounded by producers and tutors left much to be desired in that particular area.

Rabbit Heart's Chapter 2 Teasers!

Chapter 2


The sound of paws and yipping echoed through the house as the wrinkly little tan and white dog came barreling down the hardwood floored hallway. The puppy immediately started barking at the newcomer, causing Bella to step backwards in fright. Emmett crouched down and scooped up the small dog, cooing lovingly while scratching his head.

"Who's my good boy? Huh?"

"I swear, son, you treat that damn dog better than your old man," a deep, gravelly voice called from the next room.

Bella's eyes widened slightly and her heart began to pound furiously. Emmett smiled and nudged her forward. She walked slowly towards the living room until the imposing visage of Robert McCarty came into view. Even though he was sitting in his beloved recliner, you could still tell that he was a big man. Six feet five and built like a lumberjack, Mac had always been an imposing figure. She could see that his dark hair was now peppered with gray and his face was a bit more haggard with age, but still ruggedly handsome. 

"What are you doing here at this time of-" Mac's words were dropped from his mouth when he looked over and saw the girl standing in the doorway. 

Her fingers nervously played with the pockets of her sweatshirt and she hesitantly pulled her hood back, revealing an old and worn Mariners ball cap. Recognition and an ache for his deceased best friend hit him like a punch in the gut. He stood slowly, as if the girl would dart away at any moment.

*A special thank you to Lolypop82 for the awesome manip of our Rockella!*

Chapter 1 ~ Teasers!

Chapter One


She placed her bags on the floor and pulled her hood back, getting a good view of herself in the mirror. She knew that she wouldn't get far; her looks were too recognizable. 

Step one: She pulled her long blond hair from its ponytail and swiftly braided it, before wrapping it into a bun. It would have to do for now.

Step two: She leaned over the sink and gently plucked out one contact lens, and then the other. Dropping them in the sink, she turned on the faucet and watched the unnatural blue swirl in the basin and then down the drain. She blinked several times and looked into the mirror, an odd feeling washing over her as she gazed into her own unfamiliar chocolate eyes.

Step three: She dug through her backpack, ignoring the wads of currency shoved in there haphazardly and pulled out an old, battered Seattle Mariners ball cap. She placed it on her head and felt tears sting her eyes as she remembered her father, the hat's previous owner. She closed her eyes and sighed.

"Watch over me, Daddy and help me get to Mac safely," she whispered into the silence.

Teasers for Rabbit Heart!


"Do you have family in Forks, dear?"

She shook her head slowly. "Not really, no. I grew up there, but moved after my father was killed."

Harry looked directly at Bella in the rear view mirror, his eyes searching her face for any recognition. Her heart started to pound when his face lit up. She was convinced that her charade was up when the man spoke.

"Bella Swan, is that you?" he asked with awe in his tone.

She blinked in surprised. "Yes?" she answered, sound more like a question than a response.

The older man smiled and nodded. "You probably don't remember me, but Charlie was a good friend of mine. The entire town mourned when he passed."

She lowered her gaze, tears stinging her eyes and murmured her thanks.
