Hide and Seek
I pull the ceramic penguin off the shelf and try to pull the plug from its bottom. My fingers are like, way too big to fit beneath the rubber I need to grip in order to pry this thing from its house. I glued it in and it’s not budging so I take it to the bathroom, and look at myself in the mirror.
Yep. I’m really doing this.
My heart fell out of me and rolled along the floor to where my best friends were falling in love. A lust I could only feel, not have, not hold.
Now, as we sit beneath the stars, his shiny silver car saving us – saving me – from the cold, I try to fight the sadness.
I should just be happy, but I feel the looming dread of something breaking what we’re trying to build, and while he’s here, with me, fighting what’s against us, I can think of nothing else but physically connecting him to me. Because I can’t help but think of him leaving. Boring class after boring class come tomorrow when all I want is more of him, all of him.
I’ve missed you! Time has been spent going crazy while my computer was broken, for about three weeks. Ahh! Fic land was lost to me, and I worried my words would find another while I waited to put them down.
The Boy continues to pre-read. Dragging him into our world is so much fun! He even came to see Breaking Dawn Part Two with me the other day! Have you all seen it?
I Only Have Eyes For You
“You’re here, aren’t you.” She is a talking, walking, brand new fascination, exponentially sending waves of attraction and seduction my way. She walks ahead, facing me backwards, staring at me, challenging me, promising me with her expressive face, beaming smile and darkly gaze, I am caught in.
I would love to know your thoughts!
Please and thank you.
I, Human… You, Vampire
The door to J.J’s class is open, the room taking students slowly. She is not here yet, not close yet, the pit of my stomach sunken to the depths of me waiting. Always waiting. I am not certain if going in is wise. With proximity comes intimacy. With the language comes sex, comes me dragging her body out into the world with me.
Chapter 17 teaser:
I realise we’re walking across the field, heading towards the bleachers, it’s December, and the nights are here so soon. The sky is a blue, covering us slowly in night.
“There she is.”
“Who?” I see about seven people huddled in front of us, about twenty feet away. Two or three more of them linger off to the right. Among the seven are two girls, the rest are boys.
“Alice, that’s who.” Alice Cullen. Edward’s sister. Sitting on my bed, he told me about his family. Carlisle and Esme, Jasper and Alice, and another brother, he never mentioned his name.
“You like Alice?”
“She has a boyfriend.”
“Love is free, B.”
“I don’t think other people see it that way, Nettie.”
“Actually, see her,” Nettie points to the other girl, a tall redhead, I think her name is Siobhan, I think she’s in J.J’s class with me and Edward. “She was talking the other day about how Alice used to date a girl from dubvee two, but the girl got took out of school by her parents and they never saw her again.”
She got took away, like sent away. Or removed for being crazy due to the very real fact that Alice is a vampire and she knew? Maybe she couldn’t handle it. Maybe she told people and it wasn’t her parents who removed her.
Maybe…maybe Alice…killed her.
I don’t think so. Edward burst into my bedroom and didn’t suffocate me with the sheets I wrapped myself in to cover my shame and modesty. Surely seeing me naked would have pushed him over she edge…if there was an edge to begin with. He took me out to the meadow, it was beautiful, we were alone, like really alone and in the middle of nowhere. He didn’t use his super hot, and maybe a little creepy, super powered strength to strangle me, have his way with me, whatever way that may be. He used it to warn me. He told me he was wrong for me, he told me, and tells me over and over, that we can’t be together.
I was nine when I read my first comic book. It was really old, the colours were almost all worn out, and it smelled like turps. I used the pennies I had collected in my penguin shaped ceramic money box to buy it at a jumble sale, and it was the first really scary thing I had ever seen. Even still, I couldn’t stop looking at the pages and pages of the evil characters face, of her face – the shocked look of the heroine, the subtle changes as she moved from the unknown to the absolutely terrified.
For Halloween one year, down at the Res, Seth and Jake dressed as Vikings they wore blonde wigs, wielded plastic swords and home made helmets. I was fifteen that year, and went dressed as a vampire. A slutty vampire, but a vampire all the same.
But I was eighteen when I first met one. A vampire. Edward Cullen is a vampire. Or so he told me. Showed me. He tried to show me multiple times and I just… Edward is a vampire.
Chapter 16 will hopefully post tomorrow (Tuesday).
Today was mopey. But I came across someone recommending Lumina on their blog and it made me all giddy and stuffs! So, thank you!
All he thinks about is her, and what he sees when he’s with her; the lines, colouring her special, he sees the fast paced stutter of her flowing beauty and he smells her, wants to taste her. She thinks college is awkward, like a test before the actual stuff happens. She doesn’t know what he is. She just thinks he’s a boy, as awkward as her. Vamps – AU – E/B. 1st person POV
Why I like this fic:It’s about vamps! Nowadays the fandom is pending towards all-human stories, that’s why it’s so amazing to find a vamp fic with a vampire Edward and a human Bella. It’s well written and thoroughly enjoyable. Don’t miss it!

The lovely make me smile! ❤
Mind Over Matter
There was no light but I knew she was still up there. I left when the others left, thinking she would follow. She seemed blind to the potential dangers of leaving so late. Even the space she occupied, she was fearless in protecting it, using the same materials, the same seat and window of light before they got to it. But there was no light now, as I waited for Bella to come out, waiting for her to realise it was getting too late and she had to walk across campus. I couldn’t read their minds or see their future decisions but I saw it in their eyes, their desire as she passed them, brushing their shoulders through the hallway, or trudging across the green to get to her dorm room, her pretty face in the night light. So I waited. Outside of the technology building, I was still in earshot of the attic in the art building. I could still hear her moving, hear her breathing.
