How does it work? Each Friday one admin of TLS posts a picture prompt here to the blog. Using this image, entries are created by commenting on this post. Submissions must be 100-300 words ONLY. No more, no less. The entries are then judged and we post the winners here, each Friday, to share with all of you.

Picture prompt and Judge this week is: Jaime Arkin

“You're lying to me.”

I jump when I hear his voice, but I'm not fast enough. He blocks my door with his foot, slamming it shut after backing me inside. I take a deep breath. A week of avoiding him was a week longer than I thought I'd last. Time's up.

“I'm not.” I am.

He scoffs. “You think I can't tell when you're lying?”

I turn my head away, refusing to answer.

“Why are you doing this?” He's angry, and it's better than the hurt I heard in his voice through my door last night. In every voicemail. It makes the lies easier to say.

“I don't want you anymore, Edward. It's over.”

I speak to the floor, to the tops of his shoes. The ones he was wearing the night we met. When he called me pretty and asked me to dance.

“Look at me, Bella.”

I don't. Can't. I'll buckle.

My breath leaves me when I feel his hands cupping my face. He rushes at me, backing me against the kitchen counter. His touch is like free falling.

“Stop, no.” I close my eyes and grab at his wrists, pulling without effort.

He shakes my hands away and flattens his palm against my chest, right over my heart. “This... is mine. You gave it to me and I won't give it back.”

A tear slips over the curve of my upper lip and he licks it away.

My jeans and underwear are around my upper thighs and his shaking fingers slide over the wetness that belongs to him. He's frantic. Desperate and frenzied. I'm ashamed for doing this to him. “Don't do this to us, Bella.”

I wrap my arms around his shoulders.

“Don't let me.”

“No underwear, little love?”

His fingers dip and slide, just to check that I’m wet - as if he doesn’t already know that I will be from just his proximity alone. His chuckle is brash as it breaks the silence between us, his thumb lingering for just a second before he brings his hands up to trail across my body.

There are a thousand white-hot pokers hidden beneath the pads of his fingers, charring and scorching and searing my already-flayed skin. His touch is a brand that marks me as only his, as though I could ever belong to another after knowing him.

“Sweet girl,” he whispers. “Sweetest girl. My sunshine.”

He trails his hands across my body so slowly, so demanding that I surrender. I slump and give and he takes, takes, takes, using me. Consuming me.

Freeing me.

“I’ll make you shine.” He fingers the crease underneath the teardrop curve of my breast. “Little diamond, so precious. Love-ray so bright that she blinds me.”

My hands twitch from their position behind me, wanting so desperately to feel him, read him, as though there are flesh-deep secrets written in Braille on his skin.

“Keep them there, beauty. Don’t move them.”

His words are steel veiled by softness, but we both know the warning is a real one. His skin is mottled and scarred, raised and jagged.

Too ugly for my pretty to touch, he says. Too ugly to feel my love.

So when his hand moves down to flick and fuck and rub, I keep still, giving him all that he lets me.

When I come, I lock my eyes onto his.

Praying that one day he’ll let me give more than just my gaze.

And from the dark glimmer of green looking back, he knows.

“Don't be a fucking child, Bella.”

His voice raised the hair on the back of my neck. I met his gaze, unrepentant. “I have no idea what you mean.”

He tossed his coat aside, began unfastening his cuffs. “No?”

He folded back his left sleeve, his right. The sight of his strong fingers distracted me momentarily, but I reined in my traitorous libido. My chin hitched up a notch.

I moved to walk deeper into his apartment, but he grasped the hem of my shirt, wrenching me back and whipping it over my head. I whirled, one arm a feeble cover over my braless chest even as I tried to stiff-arm some space between us.

He didn't allow any distance, pushing against my hand until the backs of my thighs pressed against the hall table. “Jealousy is for children. You're better than that.”

Shame shivered through me, but I couldn't back down. I needed something from him, some sort of affirmation that I was more than a good lay. “I need--”

He leaned closer, dominating my space and stealing my breath. “You need to understand.”

His skillful fingers twisted free the button of my jeans, shoved down the zipper. He ignored the flimsy barrier of my panties to slide into the heat within. “Wet for me, Bella.” He slid one finger inside, slick, easy. “Your body knows it.” He angled until our eyes met. “You know it.”

He sank his finger deep, possessive. I gasped at the strength of the shudder rippling over me, captured entirely within his gaze, within his intimate hold. My eyes burned, then the cool slip of a tear down my cheek.

He growled, pressed his lips to the trail. Gripping my hand, he flattened my palm over his heart. “Yours, Bella. Only, ever yours.”

“Bella.”

My hand freezes on the door when I hear the familiar voice behind me. I don’t even turn around and say, “How did you find me?”

It doesn’t matter. He’s here and I’m already slipping.

He leans in and says what I’m thinking. “It doesn’t matter.” The whisper hits my ear and I close my eyes feeling tingles and warmth.

The last ditch effort is out of my mouth like a broken record, “We’re not good for each other, Edward.”

His mouth is at my throat and I can’t help but to lean back into him. He knows just like I do that this will not end well.

“I don’t give a fuck.”

I turn the knob to open the door just as I turn to face him, seeking out lips that have played a role in my dreams for the last four months.

He leads me with his body, moving me into the apartment toward my hall table.

Dropping my bag, I reach behind to support myself on the table while Edward grips my hips and moves his hands up to remove my t-shirt. His lips are back at my throat sucking while one hand goes to the back of my head and the other goes to the button on my jeans.

The room is spinning when his hand enters my panties. I’m already wet. My body knows what’s happening even before my brain does.

One last hesitation travels through my head. It says that I can still stop this. But the butterflies in my stomach and the moan coming out of my mouth drowns out that thought.

“Bella…” My name sounds like a prayer as he whispers it across my skin, bringing his lips back to meet mine.

He’s right. I don’t give a fuck either.

Monday: Bella is my new lab partner. Bella Swan … how many times have I written her name across my ceiling at night? Pictured her perfect face behind squeezed-shut eyes as I stroked myself faster?

Word is she just dumped her asshole college boyfriend.

Word is she’s had her eyes on me.

Tuesday: Her cleavage is on display. She sits closer than usually acceptable, and bites her lip when she smiles. I wince in pain watching her cherry-red fingernails dance across her collarbone.

Wednesday: She says my name out loud, and it will never sound the same again. I make a list of all the ways I could make her say it.

Thursday: She arrives at the library freshly showered, hair still damp. She smells like jasmine and vanilla, and I want nothing to do with exhaling when she is near.

Friday: She texts me, asking to get together later to trade lab notes.

What are you really asking for, naughty girl?

Saturday: We climb the stairs to my bedroom in silence. Call me crazy, but she wears lust like a neon sign. I close the door, turn around.

Nope. Not crazy.

Two long steps and I’m flush against her. Our lips are frantic, like they’ve missed each other.

“Is this why you came?” I back her into my desk, tugging at her jeans while she removes her shirt.

“I haven’t come yet.” Deep brown eyes simultaneously order and plead.

My fingers slide against her slick warmth, one on each side of her clit.

Her tongue tastes like candy. I pull my hand; my fingers taste like honey and need.

I turn her and bend her over the desk.

With my jeans around my ankles, I roll on a condom, and fuck her until I hear my name again.

TLS Fic of the Week 9/24- 9/30


To Destroy by Walkingwithgiants
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7493279/1/To-Destroy
In the words of Abe Lincoln, "The best way to destroy an enemy is to make him a friend." Bella works for a man that makes her teeth grind. "My boss is an asshole," she cried. Rated M

Review by: jacndaniel

Being asked to write this review was both flattering and terrifying. I love Mariana’s words and I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to do them justice. Yet here is my humble attempt.

When “To Destroy” begins we meet Bella. She is in a mediocre temp position, and is just taking life as it comes. She doesn’t have any idea what she is in for when she accepts a permanent position as the new assistant to the elusive Mr. Edward Cullen.

In fact, Mr. Cullen is so elusive that our Bella introduces herself to him as “Mr. Cullen’s new assistant”. That is where the fun begins!

"I'm Mr. Cullen," he said in an annoyed tone. He dropped a stack of binded papers onto the corner of the desk. "You can assist me by making me twenty copies of his pamphlet and putting each into a portfolio before you go." There was no please, no further questions about what my name was, no welcoming words into his office, nothing. The tall man with a pretty face, and dismissive attitude ducked into his office and left me there at 4:55 on a Friday with a bunch of shit to do.

Really, I tried to remind myself of how nice he'd been the first time we'd met a year ago, but it was freaking impossible. Impossible! I mean, shit! Who does that? Obviously this douche bag. Grabbing the collection of papers of the table, I ground my teeth together and hissed out what I had a feeling would become my mantra, "Fucking asshole."

An asshole indeed and he will have many more opportunities to prove his asshole-ness as the story unfolds. Edward Cullen screams more than he speaks and Bella finds herself on the receiving end of many a rant. It takes a few weeks for Bella to make a little progress with her Jerkward, and even then her victory is short lived.

"I just wanted to tell you that did well in the meeting."

Umm... excuse me?

I didn't know how to respond besides side-eyeing the wall and my computer screen.

"Thank you," I mumbled out, waiting for the moment in which he would criticize some aspect of my work.

There was silence in return.

Until I heard him clear his throat again. "Next time, I'd appreciate it if you didn't waste time by staring at blank pages in your notebook though, Isabella."

And, bam.

How the hell did he know? It was then that I remembered him watching me unwrap a new packet of legal pads earlier in the week, and stashing them in my desk.

"You can make up the time by staying ten minutes later tonight. Send me your notes from the meeting ASAP."

I decided one thing in that moment. At some point, maybe not in a day, or a week, or even a month, I would make Mr. Cullen pay for being an asshole because it was genuinely fair. I held back tears from my eyes, both because I was humiliated that he caught me, but also because it just seemed so unfair.”

Jeebus, that man could use a lesson in Management 101! It’s probably not the best idea to make your assistant hate you, especially since she is the one running your life for you. I wanted to feel sorry for poor Bella, but I don’t think she wants me to. I’m sure she has something brewing, and pay back is a bitch.

The dynamic between Bella and Edward doesn't change much until their fateful first business trip, to which she gets a hilarious send off from her best friend Angela. I must say that this is the best “Angela” I have read in a long time. She is anything but shy and quiet like she is expected to be. The relationship that she has with Bella is one of my favorite parts of the story.

 A sharp rap at my window made both of us shriek like half-dressed hussies in scary movies.

"Sweet baby Jesus!" Angela shrieked.

Followed by my loud "Shit!"

I grabbed at the place where my heart would be, looking out the window to see who in the world had just scared the crap out of us. Recognizing the deep, green eyes on the other side of the glass, I let out a deep exhale as my heart fought its way to regulate itself.

Mr. Cullen stood there, the same bored expression as always filling his features. "I'm here," he said, loudly.

I nodded my response and watched him walk away, toward a slick, black Town car that was parked haphazardly on the fire lane.

"Uhh... please tell me that wasn't your boss," she muttered.

"That isn't my boss?"

Angela's jaw dropped open when I turned to look at her. "Bella, that man is smoking hot."

I couldn't help but groan. "He's a dick."

"A hot dick!" she squealed. "Why didn't you tell me the man looks like a GQ model?"


"It's hard to acknowledge someone's hotness when he has such a shitty personality," I scoffed, looking out the window to see a full sized car and a compact car pulling into the parking lot. "I think that's our car, Ang."


We got out of the car and pulled my small suitcase out of her trunk. Angela wrapped me in a tight hug before whispering in my ear, "Now I really do hope you share a room with that stud."

"You're terrible," I laughed against her ear.

Usually when Edward and Bella are sent away together on any kind of over night trip, the sparks fly and they return as a couple. That is not the case here. Not even close. Believe me when I tell you that  it’s not what you think. At all. It came so far out of left field for me that I think I read the chapter four times! Seriously, the turn the story takes is a sharp left and all hell breaks loose.

"You're a fucking slut!" the blonde woman screamed in my face.

"I already called security!" an unfamiliar voice just to my other side exclaimed.

I looked over, struggling just the slightest to keep Kate from slipping out of my hold, to see that two other people from our floor were standing in the hallway, in their underwear, looking alarmed. Kate kicked my leg with the toe of her shoe, nailing me right to the side of my shin, contacting the muscle there with a vengeance. I yelped before pushing my body weight against her to keep her legs immobile. My heart was beating fast while I pushed against Kate again, looking down at the dark carpet. I didn't want to look up. I didn't want to see Mr. Cullen's stupid face right there.

I don't think I'd ever been so pissed off in my life.

It wasn't like I actually needed his help, but still. I'd never met a man that wouldn't have stood up for me, if I needed it. Obviously, I'd needed it. 

If you aren’t intrigued now, then I don’t know what else I can say. This story is smart and funny and pulls at the heart strings more than I expected it to. You will not regret waiting for the updates, I surely don’t.

Thanks to the lovely ladies at The Lemonade Stand for asking me to write this review, and thanks to Mariana for sharing such a great story with us all!



Small Bump by Thimbles
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9612494/1/Small-Bump
Pregnancy is an entirely natural process, one I'd studied and seen in all its stages. Yet in that moment, knowing that Bella was carrying our child, a little person somehow knit together from her and me, and the love we shared, it seemed a strange miracle—she seemed a strange miracle. Life, loss, love, and hope. (Angst rating applies to Ch. 1 only.) Rated M

LAST WEEK'S PROMPT AND WINNERS CHOSEN BY PAWsPeaches:











I gotta say... I didn't think I was going to have any entries at all. And then... you guys surprised me. Thanks to everyone who took the time to drop by and show me your words. Some of you had me wanting to track you down and pm you immediately, to beg for more. I wanted Max-fic and you over-delivered. I love these entries. You're all winners. 

1st Place:

...

He's standing in the corner when I see him. There's a cigarette resting on his bottom lip, and his thick, sandy hair is fucked up from too much raking. Somebody touches his arm; sharp, red talons curling around him like he's prey, and I have to stop myself from screaming.

A softer touch on my own wrist; I turn to see my son looking at me. "I was wondering when you'd get here."

I swallow down the bile that's rising up my throat and turn to Jack, smiling at his happy face. "It's your degree exhibition, Sweetheart. I wouldn't miss a thing."

"Did you see Max's stuff?" He points to the nudes hung around the room. They're perfect; pale pink flesh brought to life by a master.

"They're good," I murmur, feeling strange when I see my own body reflected back at me over and over again. "But not as good as yours."

Jack laughs loudly. "He's out of my league."

Him and me both.

I spend the evening hiding, stepping behind installations, avoiding his notice. It almost works, until Jack's tutor spots me. His loud hail causes everybody to stare.

But cerulean blue is all I can see.

The world stops. Clocks don't tick, rivers don't run. I stand like a frightened deer when his eyes catch mine. He walks toward me, his swagger cocky and knowing. I grip my glass so tightly it almost breaks.

"You're here." Max leans forward to brush his lips against my cheek, pausing by my ear, his breath dancing on my skin. "You look fucking incredible."

I blush and pull back too quickly. He can see the way my nipples pucker beneath my sheer dress. His bottom lips fall open as he grabs my wrist, fingers tight against my flesh. 

"I missed you."


2nd Place
DH78- http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2231937/DH78
Word count: 296

It started with a simple glance. 

“Here you go.” The guy I’ve been chatting with hands me a beer. 

Not even his offering can make me break eye contact with this man.

This shining star.

This beacon.

The way he leans against the railing listening to the small gathering of people who seem to be just as drawn to him as I am right now.

He answers them. A drag from his cig... never taking his eyes off me. His answering smile is bright, dimpled and sexy as hell.

He’s caught me in his web.

I’d barely escape his hold if I tried. 

I don’t want to escape.

I remember the feel of his lips.

I remember the feel of his smooth skin over the tight muscles of his back; his thick, wavy hair through my fingers as I tugged and pulled.

His warm, calloused hands setting me on fire.

The slight animalistic growl in his voice when he entered me, fucked me.

The velvety lilt of his accent after we lay there, speaking words of want; words of satisfaction in the dark.

Here I am... here we are. Again. An ocean of time between us. But it still feels like yesterday.

I break away from the connection when the guy talking to me calls my name.

“Hmm? I’m sorry?”

“Oh, I was just wondering if you maybe wanted to grab something to eat later?”

I’m about to turn him down when a strong arm snakes its way around my waist. The feel of him scorches every inch of me through my dress.

“Sorry. She has plans,” he says, whisking me away.

“I thought I could stay away,” he whispers leading me to my destiny. “I’m mad for you.”

And I know...

I won’t say no.

3rd Place
Bebe Ginja

“Come to me tonight. I must have you.” King Edward whispered into my ear.

I curtsied low before him as our dance ended. The court had already feasted, but the king, I noticed, was still hungry.

“Yes, Your Grace,” I replied.

Who am I to deny my king? I am only fifteen, and although I know the risks my consent carries, I also know in my heart that I must have him, too.

I knew it from the moment I saw him.

Now, I sneak my way to King Edward’s door. The guards ignore me—they must have been warned.

I enter his chambers, and my king stands in his undergarments in front of the fireplace. He is tall, muscular, and simply god-like.

“What is your name?”

“Isabella, my lord.”

“Let me undress you.”

As he unlaces my dress, his knuckles graze my bare shoulders, sending shivers down my spine. I turn to him and let my dress fall, let my hair down.

“So beautiful,” he sighs. He cups my chin with his hand and kisses me full on the mouth. 

“Am I your first?” he asks between unhurried kisses to my neck.

“Yes,” I breathe, feeling my heartbeat everywhere.

“Then I shall make it memorable.”

I lay on the bed before him, his body glowing in the firelight. His eyes, dark with lust, are in complete contrast to the playfulness of his smirk.

Despite his scandalous reputation, I am delighted to find that my king is gentle, and indeed quite gracious.

His fingers inside me force his name quietly from my lips. And, later, as he hovers over me, his name is an anthem, an incantation, a hymn, and a prayer.

God, forgive me for what I have done.

I am in love; in love and surely ruined.

4th Place:

...
He walks toward me, his smile radiant and his bright, green eyes crinkling at the corners.

I can’t help but smile back.

I watch him as he watches me.

I bet my view is way better.

He licks his lips and his Adam’s apple bobs as he swallows. I want to lick it, or gently bite it. I imagine the scruff from his five o’clock shadow tickling my lips, and squeeze my thighs together to relieve the ache between them.

He runs a hand through his wavy, messy hair and I groan, longing to do the same; wishing I was that hand.

His eyebrows rise up as he approaches. “Hey, Bella, what are you up to?”

I shrug. “Not much. You?”

“Same.” His lips wrap around each word.

I bite my lip hard enough to stop myself from telling him what a huge crush I have on him and how I wish he’d kiss me already and take me out of my misery. 

Instead, I say, “I was just going to get a coffee. Want to stand in line with me?”

I am lame.

But the smile he gives me eclipses the one from moments ago. “I’ll follow you anywhere, Bella.”

My toes curl and my insides quiver as he extends his hand toward mine.

Gulping, I nervously slip my palm against his. “Okay.”

I look up at him shyly and the way he’s beaming down at me tells me that maybe there’s a chance.

We walk inside the coffee shop together, confidence radiating off of him in waves. 

My hand never leaves his as he orders our drinks. He charms Mrs. Cope into giving us free scones and offers to feed me because my hands are full.

That’s when I know I’ll get to taste that tempting apple someday.

Honorable Mention
Maiqui Mycel Tameta
@UnderageDreamer143

I took a long drag of the brightly lit cigarette between my fingers. I looked at her. Tears streaming down her beautiful face across from me.

I heard every soft whimper that chose to escape her lips.. every silent prayer she cried out to a god who restricted her rights because of her sexuality.

My arm leaned against the door frame as I surveyed the damage I’d done. 

“F*ck!” I exploded.

My hands grabbed my sand colored hair in a vice grip. I punched the wall more than once. The ache, caused by the force my hands were under, was nothing compared to the pain in my heart for her. It’s all because of her.

I kept punching the battered wall when I felt two small hands around my waist pleading for me to stop what I was doing. I punched the hole once more before I turned to face my blue-eyed angel.

I grabbed her face between my palms. I kissed her lips in hunger for her love. My tongue grazed over her bottom lips, begging for entry, hoping that she would return the same passion and intensity I poured into that kiss; pleading in it that she would feel the same.

“Come with me,” I whispered, already knowing that her answer would be no but I kept trying.

“My life is here, Max.”

I turned away and let out a mocking laugh. My body tensed with anger.

“A LIFE…WITH LIMITATIONS… IMPOSED BY A COUNTRY… CULTURE…RELIGION THAT YOU DON’T EVEN CARE ABOUT!” I answered before falling to my knees in front of her.

Tears streamed down my face as I kissed her stomach where our Little Miracle laid.

“Come with me, my beautiful girl… please,” my voice breaking.

“Don’t give him up.... Don’t give us up.”

TLS Fic of the Week 9/17-9/23: the Fab Five are up!


Open Range- A Short Story by PattyRose
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9632155/1/
Open-Range-A-Short-Story In the mid 1800's, out on the western range is where a real man makes his livelihood. And if he's mighty lucky, it's where he makes his destiny as well. A six chapter story with daily updates. E & B. Rated M

Review by: Cared

I’d like to send a virtual bouquet of flowers to FallingSnowWinter for planting the seed that grew into this rip-roarin’, historical, country tale. She created and then posted these two sexy and inspiring manips in PattyRose’s FB group, thus stirring PattyRose to take us onto the open range in the 1800’s.


The first tantalizing glimpse of sweaty, dirty Edward - being a man’s man - as he drives his cattle over the Texas plains will get your heart a thumpin’, and believe me, the first mention of his “pecker” will get your blood a racin’. *wink* Edward has a similar reaction when a beautiful cowgirl makes an unexpected appearance…

When this cattle girl finally removes her hat and shakes her head out, long, chocolate hair comes loose and slaps itself against a sun-kissed face that should be on an angel, not a cowhand. I blink and stare like a total jack-ass because the sun has decided to shine every single one of its rays over her, and so I must look.

Wait. 

I ain't no namby-pamby, 'case that's what y'all are thinkin'. I have never known myself to be in love. The three, wonderful, generous women who let me poke around inside them – Tanya, Kate and Rina - were not objects of my undying affection, though I deeply appreciated the favor that they were bestowing on me. I am a practical man of twenty-four years on this here Earth, and while I know that one day I may have to settle down and take a wife, I am aware that the life I lead is not ideal for most married folks. Plenty a grass widow come about from my way of life: women who can't deal with a husband away for months at a time, who rightfully wonder what that husband does on his time away: who's warmin' his body and keepin' his pecker workin' and such. My Ma and Pa have made it work but that right there is the exception not the rule for conjugal bliss. I've resigned myself to the fact that my wife will come second in my life and will either deal with it - or leave.

Unsuspecting Edward considered this his plan until the stubborn as a mule and mighty perty Bella rode into his life.  She is a feisty, strong spirited, impetuous woman living in a man’s world…and I love her! In Edward’s words, “She is the most glorious, confusin' and bewitchin' bein' I have ever encountered.” Between her skills on the open range and her womanly wiles, she brands her man, lassoes his heart, and opens up a new and exhilarating trail for them both – but not without a measure of rugged terrain to negotiate first.

You can bet your bottom dollar the unusual setting, intoxicating plot, delightful old west sayings and the truly interesting menfolk, will quickly have you rounded up, but, I’m not ashamed to admit, PattyRose had me at Cowboyward! Edward’s inner monologue will leave you both giggling at him, and yearning for him, no matter how dirty he might be. Who knew a roll in the hay could be so sensual and hot – even with the scent of manure lingering in the air?  The authentic cowboy speak will allow the dust to invade your nostrils, the fieriness of the midday sun to beat down on your neck, and make your throat as dry as prairie grass, all while feeling you are riding right alongside the Cullen men as they wrangle their cattle towards Abilene.

So ladies, I’d be much obliged if you’d saddle-up, hold tight to the reins, and allow Cowboyward and his…stallion to take you for a wild ride on the open range!

*steps clear of stampede*

LAST WEEK'S PROMPT AND WINNERS
Special thanks to our last week Guest Judge, @Cosmogirl7481! 


FIRST PLACE WINNER 
jarkin33
http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2140452/jarkin33
300 words

"Can you help me find something on the back stacks, Bella?"

My boss’s husky voice filled the nearly empty library, and a tremor vibrated through my suddenly alert body.

"Sure, Edward." I quickly logged off the computer and made my way around the information desk.

One week ago, he had asked for my assistance in the stacks. Without warning I found myself pinned to the shelves behind me with his hand tugging the buttons of my blouse apart. The cups of my bra pulled down exposing me to the cool air. As his tongue thrust into my mouth almost desperately, his hands teased and tugged at my tits and I begged for more.

He made me come with his fingers that night, my whimpers and moans filling the silence of the room. Pressed against authors I studied and read and admired, and I didn’t care one bit.

What we did that night wasn't pretty or sweet or loving.

Some might even call it disgusting.

But fuck... it felt good.

It was rough and desperate and dirty. It was perfect.

I tugged his pants over his ass. His cock sprung free, the swollen head of him right there waiting for me to say yes.

"Fuck, Bella... I want to be in that hot, sweet mouth of yours."

I remember licking my lips and whispering ‘yes’, as he slid his hand into my hair, his fingers digging in, grabbing and holding me steady.

He grasped himself tightly and slid his cock over my wet mouth and I let my tongue taste him.

I tasted everything he gave me that night.

As I follow him away from the bright lights of the entryway, into the darker recesses of the building I’ve worked in for years, I silently wonder what this night will bring.

SECOND PLACE
eternallyedward 
http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1934906/eternallyedward
300 words

Bella was just going to lock the library doors when she heard the bell tinkle.

“I'm sorry, the library is cl—ˮ

Her words were choked off at the sight of the man who stood there.

“Lock up.”

Bella shivered at the sound of his voice. With trembling hands, she did as he ordered.

“Go to the back, to the reference section. Take your tits out.”

Bella's mouth gaped. He arched a brow, his eyes never leaving her face.

Slowly, Bella walked to the back of the library. With her back to him, she began to unbutton her blouse with trembling fingers.

“Turn around so I can see you. Get on your knees when you're done.”

Bella closed her eyes and swallowed. Turning to face him, she continued.

As Bella sank to her knees, she heard his zipper being released. Looking up she came face-to-face with his cock, hard and slick with precum. Instinctually she licked her lips.

“That's right, baby, lick those lips. Get them nice and wet.” Taking his cock in hand, he rubbed it over Bella's lips and cheeks, leaving a sticky trail. Her eyes fluttered closed and a soft whimper escaped.

When Bella's tongue peeked out, he pulled away.

“Ah, ah, ah...did I say you could have my cock? Beg for it; show me what a hungry cockslut you are.”

“Please, may I...may I suck your cock, sir?”

Groaning, he tapped his dick against her lips. “Fuck, yes. Open up.”

Eagerly Bella took him in, working his cock until he grunted and pulled out, spraying her breasts with come.

After he'd caught his breath he smirked.

“So did that satisfy your fantasy of being dominated?”

She grinned and leaned up for a kiss. “Yes, sir!”


THIRD PLACE
Missy (CullensTwiMistress)
http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2593677/
300 words

...My pussy throbs and my body tingles in anticipation as I drop to my knees in front of him.

"That's it, sweet girl, take my cock," he says between clenched teeth, the tendons in his neck pulled tight. "Open your mouth, Bella."

I obey greedily, parting my lips, my tongue peeking out, wanting to taste him.

He runs his length along my jaw, the smooth skin pulsing as he teases. "I want you to suck it, sweetheart."

I nod, moving my head, my mouth instinctively following his movement.

My breathing is ragged at best and my chest heaves as I finally taste him.

"Such a greedy girl," he coos, finally sinking deep into my mouth. I open my throat for him and take him deeper, breathing and swallowing when I can.

"Such nice tits, Bella. And your mouth, Jesus, sweetheart, how am I supposed to control myself around you?" He moves his hips in time with my movements and threads his dexterous fingers into my hair.

I moan, my eyes meeting his as I swirl my tongue around him and reach down under my skirt to touch my soaked pussy.

I’ve wanted him to notice me every time I walked into this little book store, little did I know he wanted me too.

"That's right, touch yourself, greedy girl. I fucking knew you were perfect." His eyes are soft, in spite of his dirty mouth. I love it. I love everything about him.

I can’t wait to finally have him inside me.

He groans pulling his glorious cock out of my mouth and leans over me, his lips crashing into mine, his tongue pushing between my lips and his strong arms lifting me off the ground. My legs wrap around his hips and my back hits the bookshelf behind me.

I love Mondays.

My afternoon meetings with Professor Cullen on Wednesdays are very nice, sweet even. Screwing in a locked meeting room in the back of the campus library doesn’t usually provide uninterrupted time for long but we make the best of it. We don’t rush too much.

Fridays are even slower. The library is mostly empty and we know we won’t see each other for three more days, so we strive to make every thrust count.

It’s the best kind of torture the way our bodies push and pull at our leisurely pace and, by the time we both fall apart, our bodies are sticky with sweat and exhausted from the exertion.

Monday is the day we crave the most, though. Needy from being deprived all weekend, our bodies connect in a fast and furious way, always leaving us wanting more.

He’s watching me. My teeth graze my bottom lip before I walk away, knowing he’s following me to the back of the library. When I turn the last corner, his mouth attacks my own, his tongue not waiting for an invitation because it knows it’s always welcome.

My shirt is undone and my breasts are released within seconds but I don’t allow him to linger for long. I quickly undo his pants and pull them down as I sink to my knees.

“You gonna suck me, baby?” He rubs his cock across my face, teasing me, but, when I grab his hands, he stops.

“No touching. Hold onto the wall behind me because I’m going to fuck you with my mouth.”

My command surprises him but, when I wrap my lips around him and push his hard cock down my throat, placing my hands on his ass for leverage, he quickly surrenders.

Yeah, I love Mondays.

"Can you help me find something on the back stacks, Bella?"

My boss’s husky voice filled the nearly empty library, and a tremor vibrated through my suddenly alert body.

"Sure, Edward." I quickly logged off the computer and made my way around the information desk.

One week ago, he had asked for my assistance in the stacks. Without warning I found myself pinned to the shelves behind me with his hand tugging the buttons of my blouse apart. The cups of my bra pulled down exposing me to the cool air. As his tongue thrust into my mouth almost desperately, his hands teased and tugged at my tits and I begged for more.

He made me come with his fingers that night, my whimpers and moans filling the silence of the room. Pressed against authors I studied and read and admired, and I didn’t care one bit.

What we did that night wasn't pretty or sweet or loving.

Some might even call it disgusting.

But fuck... it felt good.

It was rough and desperate and dirty. It was perfect.

I tugged his pants over his ass. His cock sprung free, the swollen head of him right there waiting for me to say yes.

"Fuck, Bella... I want to be in that hot, sweet mouth of yours."

I remember licking my lips and whispering ‘yes’, as he slid his hand into my hair, his fingers digging in, grabbing and holding me steady.

He grasped himself tightly and slid his cock over my wet mouth and I let my tongue taste him.

I tasted everything he gave me that night.

As I follow him away from the bright lights of the entryway, into the darker recesses of the building I’ve worked in for years, I silently wonder what this night will bring.

Bella was just going to lock the library doors when she heard the bell tinkle.

“I'm sorry, the library is cl—ˮ

Her words were choked off at the sight of the man who stood there.

“Lock up.”

Bella shivered at the sound of his voice. With trembling hands, she did as he ordered.

“Go to the back, to the reference section. Take your tits out.”

Bella's mouth gaped. He arched a brow, his eyes never leaving her face.

Slowly, Bella walked to the back of the library. With her back to him, she began to unbutton her blouse with trembling fingers.

“Turn around so I can see you. Get on your knees when you're done.”

Bella closed her eyes and swallowed. Turning to face him, she continued.

As Bella sank to her knees, she heard his zipper being released. Looking up she came face-to-face with his cock, hard and slick with precum. Instinctually she licked her lips.

“That's right, baby, lick those lips. Get them nice and wet.” Taking his cock in hand, he rubbed it over Bella's lips and cheeks, leaving a sticky trail. Her eyes fluttered closed and a soft whimper escaped.

When Bella's tongue peeked out, he pulled away.

“Ah, ah, ah...did I say you could have my cock? Beg for it; show me what a hungry cockslut you are.”

“Please, may I...may I suck your cock, sir?”

Groaning, he tapped his dick against her lips. “Fuck, yes. Open up.”

Eagerly Bella took him in, working his cock until he grunted and pulled out, spraying her breasts with come.

After he'd caught his breath he smirked.

“So did that satisfy your fantasy of being dominated?”

She grinned and leaned up for a kiss. “Yes, sir!”

...My pussy throbs and my body tingles in anticipation as I drop to my knees in front of him.

"That's it, sweet girl, take my cock," he says between clenched teeth, the tendons in his neck pulled tight. "Open your mouth, Bella."

I obey greedily, parting my lips, my tongue peeking out, wanting to taste him.

He runs his length along my jaw, the smooth skin pulsing as he teases. "I want you to suck it, sweetheart."

My breathing is ragged at best and my chest heaves as I finally taste him.

He groans pulling his glorious cock out of my mouth and leans over me, his lips crashing into mine, his tongue pushing between my lips and his strong arms lifting me off the ground. My legs wrap around his hips and my back hits the bookshelf behind me.
