Chapter 16 teasers

Chapter 16


She let out a sigh of contentment as Edward settled behind her. She leaned back and rested herself against his chest, the hot water and bubbles lapping the at top of her breasts. His hands slid slowly down her arms until his hands joined hers on the lip of the tub.

"Is the water okay?" he murmured in her ear.

"It's perfect," she replied, turning her head to capture his lips in a soft kiss. "This has been the best Valentine's ever."

"I wanted to make it special for you," he replied quietly. "I'm going to miss you so much."

She let go of his hands and shifted her body sideways, water sloshing onto the floor. His eyes were sad as she reached up, cupping his cheeks.

"I love you," she responded emphatically. "I'll miss you, too, but remember it's only temporary. You own my heart, Edward. Completely and totally."

Chapter 15 Teasers!

Chapter 15


"What do you have there?" Bella asked, poking her head up into the attic to see what was taking him so long.

Edward was sitting with his legs folded, papers scattered around him on the floor. At the sound of her voice, he looked up slowly, his eyes full of wonder. Immediately, her curiosity was piqued.

"They're your father's. I'm sorry I took so long, they were just just stuffed in this box haphazardly so I tried to put them in some type of order."

She smiled and ducked under a rafter, making her way over to him slowly. She found an empty spot right next to him and slid down carefully, picking up a random paper and reading it. The hand writing was neat, but obviously masculine.

August 23, 1997
In less than a month, my baby girl will be ten. She's growing up too fast and just as beautiful as her mother. I know Mac, Emmett and I are going to have our hands full in a few years. Maybe I could keep her locked away like a fairytale princess? Nah, then I'd just be edgy waiting for that knight in shining armor to scale her wall and sweep her off into the night.

Ha! As if I'll be able to contain her, if she's half as stubborn as Renee. But that's okay, because she's still my Bella.


Tears spilled down her cheeks and she reached up to wipe them away. Glancing over, she noticed Edward was slack-jawed in surprise, looking down at a paper in his hand.

"Edward? What's wrong," she asked in concern.

He turned to her and silently handed her the weathered square of paper, his hands trembling slightly. She studied it in shock, her mind fighting to wrap itself around the typed words and failing miserably.

Chapter 14 Teasers!

Chapter 14


As his hand slid up her naked thigh, Bella released a sigh of contentment. She shifted and cocked her leg around his hip, allowing his body to settle comfortably on top of her. His lips slowly made their way down her neck, igniting a path of fire along the way.

"Edward," she moaned lightly. She felt him smile against the skin right above her heart, before placing a kiss there, so soft and gentle that she barely felt it.

He shifted and brought his mouth back to her lips, before pulling back. His eyes bored deeply into hers, the sheer amount of adoration she saw in them took her breath away. She had the strangest urge to pull away, grab her notebook and pen the most beautiful song ever written, but nothing on Earth would pull her out of this moment. The world could live without another great love song. She couldn't live without this moment in time with him.

In her eyes, it was an even trade off.

Chapter 13 Teasers!

Chapter 13

Edward pulled to a stop outside of Mac's house and turned off the engine. His wide smile sent a shot happiness right up Bella's spine, leaning forward and pressing his lips against hers softly.

"I love you," he whispered against her skin. "Now that the floodgates have opened, you're going to get sick of me saying that."

She threw her head back and laughed, her eyes shining. "I'll never get sick of that. You're stuck with me now, Cullen."

He pulled her close. kissing her hard. "I'm counting on it, Princess."

Just as their bodies untangled, the passenger side door was pulled opened and someone yanked Bella out of the truck's cab. She turned quickly, finding herself face-to-face with a pair of steel blue eyes.

"James," she gasped in surprise.

Walk for CHOP Fundraiser

Hey guys! I posted this on my Blog, but since it could involve a RH Outtake, I'd figured I'd post it here as well to get some views. 
I received paperwork from my son's school today asking for sponsors for their walk-a-thon benefiting CHOP, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. I was going to just do what I did last year, write out a $20 check and send it in. But this year, I figure that I might as well try to put a little extra effort into this.

For anyone who decides to contribute to this awesome cause, I'll be writing a piece and sharing it with you guys. Since you're the one calling the shots, it'll be your choice as to what I write. Whether it's an Outtake, a One shot continuance or something new altogether, it's your call.

*Only* the people who donate will be sent a link to a survey with several options. The most chosen option will be written by the end of June and sent to you by July 1st. It will still get posted to FFn, but not until at least August 1st.

So, here's the deal. Between right now and next week, Friday May 13th, 2011, I'll be taking donations. I'm not setting a minimum, so please feel free to donate whatever you feel comfortable with, even it's just one dollar. Every little bit helps and it's going to a great cause.

100% of the money donated will be used to sponsor my son, Shaun. Since I need to send the money in with him to school the day of the walk, I'll be accepting PayPal payments and then just send in one check with the amount raised.

To provide as much proof as possible that I'm legitimate here, I'm posting pictures of the explanation sheet they sent home, as well as his sign up sheet and school calendar marking the date. On Friday the 13th, I'll be posting pictures of the check and his filled out sheet. If we end up raising over $100, I'll hand deliver said check and take a picture of the teacher receiving it. I don't want anyone to have to question my morality here. =)

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave them here in the comments, or email me. or hit me up on Twitter: @KitsuShel

Love, hugs and adoration,

Chapter 12 ~ Hands Down ~ is up!

Rabbit Heart Outtake for the Fandom Fights Tsunami Compilation

For the upcoming Fandom Fights Tsunami fundraiser, I will be contributing an Outtake from my current WiP, Rabbit Heart. They've raised almost $35,000 and still going! For a minimum donation of $10 to the American Red Cross, you'll receive a compilation of stories that have been donated by almost 300 different writers!

Here's a teaser for you:

“Stop being a poopie head, Shaggy!”

“Then stop being a stupid girl, Scrappy!”

The little girl folded her arms and glared at the older boy, who in return, had his fists clenched in anger.

“I am not a stupid girl! You take that back you big jerk!”

“No! You are too a stupid girl and I don’t want to play with you anymore!”

In a very rash moment, the boy shoved the little girl down and stalked away. Her bottom lip quivered as she watched her best friend in the world walk away, two other boys cackling along beside him. She grasped her shirt sleeve between her palm and thumb, wiping her nose and the tears from her cheeks.

If Emmett wanted to play with those idiotic boys instead of her, well then fine, she didn’t need him. Bella sighed and felt a sharp tug in chest. Panicking, she clutched her heart and jumped to her feet, running non-stop all the way home. Out of breath, she gasped and moaned, falling at her father’s feet in their living room.

Charlie Swan looked down at his daughter and raised his eyebrows.

“What are you doing, Bells? I thought you and Emmett were playing at the park?”

“Daddy,” she gasped, still clutching her chest. “I’m having a heart attack, please don’t let me die!” she wailed as torrent of tears washed down her face.

Chapter 12 teasers!

Chapter 12


Bella sipped her wine and set the glass back onto the coffee table, as Edward reached over and gently moved some hair from the nape of her neck, laying a gentle kiss there before beginning to massage her lightly. She sighed and leaned into his touch, the tension slowly dissipated from her body. She groaned softly, causing him to chuckle.

"Does that feel good?" he asked huskily.

"Yes," she moaned as his fingers kneaded a particularly stubborn muscle knot, "it's been a long day."

"I'm sorry," he murmured.

She pulled away and turned her body to face him, smiling. "I didn't mean it negatively. Yes, it was a long day, but it was the most fun I've had in years. Thank you for traipsing me around Seattle."

He smiled shyly and tucked her hair behind her ear. "Thank you for letting me traipse you around Seattle. And agreeing to stay the night here with me." He cupped her cheek, kissing her softly. As he began to move away, she reached for his tie and pulled him back, grazing her lips across his cheek and running her nose along his own.

"Not so fast, Cullen. You called the shots all day, it's my turn now."
