Chapter 7 ~ Teasers!

Chapter 7


Bella took a few deep breaths and leaned on Emmett as Rosalie rubbed her back in comfort. She didn't truly start to feel at ease until she looked up and found Edward's gaze. He smiled sadly at her and she swallowed thickly. For the first time since she'd been welcomed back with open arms, she wondered if being here was a good idea. She tore her gaze away from Edward and felt panic rise up in her chest. She reached down and picked up her bag and stumbled backwards, toward the door.

"Bells?" Emmett asked, his voice laden with concern. "Where are you going?"
"I- I need to leave. I c-can't stay here," she stuttered out, fresh tears attacking her eyes.

Edward realized what was happening before anyone else and didn't stop himself from moving forward this time. He strode forward and cupped her cheeks, forcing her to meet his gaze. The other three were frozen in bewilderment, until his words cut through the air like a knife.

"Don't do this, Bella. Don't run. Please don't pull away from us," he pleaded, with both his voice and his wide green eyes.

Chapter 6 Teasers!

Chapter 6


"Is that your dad?"

She looked down at the black and white photo of Charlie playing a guitar and smiled softly, memories overtaking her once again.

"Yeah," she murmured. Her fingers gently caressed the glossy finish and sighed. 

"I remember he used to sit on the porch on summer nights and play while Mac played the harmonica. Em and I would just sit and listen, enraptured. He's the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place, when my mom first moved us to L.A. I talked her into buying me one and taught myself how to play. Less than three months later she had me entered in some contest, which I won. And thus began my illustrious career." She snorted derisively and shook her head.

"I'd give up anything - everything, just to have my dad back." She glanced up and was met with eyes filled with sympathy and understanding.

He squeezed her shoulder gently and smiled sadly in comfort. "I get it. From everything that I've heard, the Chief was an amazing guy."

"He really was," she whispered, gazing back at the photo once more, before setting it to the side and reaching inside of the box of memories.

Also of note, all of the music is update on the MixPod. =)

Chapter 5 Teasers!

Chapter 5


Bella opened one eye as she heard a small scratching and whining coming from the other side of her door. She dragged herself out of bed and padded over to the door, opening it a crack. She peered out into the hall, not seeing anyone, and was startled when the dog plopped down onto her feet. She looked down and met his wide, curious eyes, his tongue hanging out the side of his mouth. 

"Um, dog? You're sitting on my feet," she murmured quietly, so that any other adults that might overhear wouldn't think she was crazy for talking to the animal. 

Joey cocked his little head to side, as if asking what her deal was. She pursed her lips, placing her hands on her hips and sighed. She stepped back, letting the dog's behind hit the floor, and walked back over the bed, sitting down. Joey trotted happily over and sat staring up at her once again. She reached down and scratched him behind the ears.

"I don't know what you want, mutt. I've never had a pet before."

"Never, really?" a voice asked from her doorway.

Chapter 4 Teasers!

Chapter 4


Jasper leaned against the bar and smiled lazily at the man. "Hey, Mike. How's it going?"

Mike grinned in return. "Not too bad, just busy at the store today." His eyes slid over to Bella and his smile widened. 

"I didn't know you guys were hiring," he mused. "Hi there, I'm Mike Newton. I own the sporting goods store a few blocks down." He waved a little and gave her his best smile.

She scanned through her memory quickly and recalled a chubby, buck-toothed Mikey Newton from when they were children. She had to admit to herself that he had certainly aged well. 

Bella smirked slightly and smiled back at him. "It's good to see you all grown up, Mikey."

He cocked his head to the side in surprise. "What? Do we know each other?"

Emmett's boisterous laughter filled the room as he came in from the office. "You sure do, Newt. She's the one that knocked your fat ass off the monkey bars when you insulted my mom in third grade."

Mike's eyes widened comically as he swung his gaze back to her. "Bella Swan? No shit," he breathed out in a whisper.
