TLS Fics of the Week 10/22/13-10/28/13



One-Night Stand in Locked-Down London by BlueIsSoul
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9290753/1/One-Night-Stand-in-Locked-Down-London
A disinterested, paranoid girl. A wealthy journalist with only one thing on his mind. Too much alcohol. A serial killer on the loose. Here's the problem with a one-night stand in locked-down London. Rated M


Reviewed by: PlanetBlue

Some of us have experienced that awkward moment when your one-night stand becomes, well, over and you have to decide how to exit the situation.

For Edward, a self-assured, cocky and womanizing Londoner, a hookup that started in a pub turns out to be one that lasts a little longer than anticipated, due to the lockdown of an entire city because of an escaped serial killer. Which, of course, he won’t discover until the fun is over.

His other problem? His choice is a super snarky and paranoid Bella, who fears the serial killer is lurking around every corner. Despite this, he finds himself strangely drawn to her, regardless of what his self-written “rules” tells him he should do.

"Charlie - my dad - tried to take me to the doctor, because he thought it could be a real issue or something. I don't go though. I mean, I'll be labeled, and that's when things become concrete.It's almost like then I'll really have something,you know what I mean?"

"Like a diagnosis?"

"Yeah."

"…of paranoia?"

She nods. "Yeah."

I take a sip from my pint. What do you say to someone who's kind of admitted they choose not to go the doctor because they think they might possibly be crazy?

Nothing.

So I say just that.

Nothing.

"Then I fixate... on things,people," she says conversationally, "men mainly."

Err…

My psycho-chick-homing-device explodes.

BOOOM!

There are alarms blaring and shit.

Get set, Edward. Go.

Run for your life.

I'm still here though.

As insane as she appears to be, our bloke Edward thinks there’s something he likes about her brand of crazy and decides that spending the night with her is a great idea. He soon finds himself in her flat having the hookup of his life.

"Your turn."I raise an eyebrow and she pushes off my shoulders, and all of a sudden pulls off me. I watch as she does a 180 so her back is in front of me, gets down on her elbows and grabs my dick from in front.

Okay.

I shuffle forward. She holds me in her small fist, bringing me to the entrance of her beautiful pussy and leaves me there, stranded.

She pushes backward and my breath hitches at the exquisite sight before me. "Bella… you're…beautiful." My dicks rests at her wet folds, and then I pause.

Does she want me to take her fast and hard? Or maybe slow and thorough? It's only a second of self doubt, yet it's strange because, hell, I don't suffer self doubt. I never question myself when it comes to this.

Challenging eyes meet mine as she looks back at me, smiling she says, "Well… what are you waiting for?"

"Patience,princess," I murmur, dipping my tip into her. "Good things come to those who wait."

Her face is turned to the side so I can see the way she closes her eyes as I push in a tiny bit and then pull out, teasing, playing, watching. Each time sinking in a little more,her noises becoming more and more ferocious with each time we meet.

She's begging."Edward, please, please…."

Her ass moves backward and moves around, searching for me as I pull away. I let her find me, and place me against her sweet pussy, before pulling back again.

She lets out a frustrated growl.

"Oh bloody hell, Edward," she complains in a whiny voice. "No teasing."

I roll my eyes. This is coming from Queen Tease herself. We are going to play a little. "Ask for it," I demand huskily, running my hand down her spine and squeezing a butt cheek.

"Ah," She whimpers. "I - I want you inside me."

 "Like this?"I dip into her.

"Yes, she whispers throatily. "I… I want more of you."

I slip in some more.

The sexy times are a bonus, as the witty banter between these two getting to the fun part of the evening is what really draws you in. They’re in fight mode from the get go, yet have an unquestionable pull towards each other. As a reader, you’ll love watching them try to navigate between their warring words and lustful bodies.

The sprinkling of British idiosyncrasies,language, and slang really makes you feel like you’re across the pond with them, and BlueIsSoul does a great job of mixing banter, sex, and humor into one enjoyable ride.

And let’s not forget what Edward now has to contend with:

I give it to her soft,hard and too much, until I ache all over because I don't want her to remember me as just any one-night stand guy. I want to be THE one-night stand guy.

And for once in my one-night encounter history, I don't spend any part of the night plotting howto escape the next morning.

Yet.

300 on the nose

“God -”

Petite, poppy-red-tipped tits rise and fall with breaths she can't catch as I watch.
Flutter-soft lashes flit open. Fearfilled irises nearly completely blacked by pleading pupils find me smiling.

It makes my love tremble.

“Oh my God -”

I smile wider, letting her see my lips, my teeth, her blood, and I can taste her better when air hits my tongue – all panic and shame and need.

“God, please,” she prays, hands in undone hair, lashes closing again while naked hips lift, seeking with their own prayer.

“Please...”

My grin only grows.

Stopping at the foot of our bed, I savor uncurling all ten burning hot, tightly tensed little toes before carefully wrapping my hands around delicate, gracefully shaped ankles. Her precious pulse quails and flirts with my palms.

“God, God, God -”

The chant comes from deep in her chest.

I'm enamored with her so erotically lost like this. She's beautiful when she lets me take part.

When she gives me communion.

When she shows me Eden.

Her fear and her fervor are as rich as the milk and honey I can't get enough of.

“Please, please -”

Securing my hands around her ankles, I tug sharply and she's at the edge of our bed with her legs pushed up and her so-bare, so-needy, so-red little cunt so open that all control almost slips from me like the cry from her lips.

“God, fuck, please ---”

Drops of life fall from the corners of my mouth to her chest as I lean over her, placing her shaking hands next to shoulders decorated with my marks.

“There you go,” I whisper, sliding along soaking sex as I kiss her neck. “Let me talk to Him, too, Bella.”

“I’m sorry!” I yelled.

“Sorry isn’t good enough!” Edward raged. “And for God’s sake, wipe your mouth!”

I licked my lips, singed by his jealousy.

“After all this time,” Alice cried. “You choose my best friend?”

“Hello!” Bella adjusted the afghan. “I’m the one who should be pissed here.”

“Yet you aren’t.” Edward narrowed his eyes. “For all I know, you enjoyed it.”

Bella protested, but her immediate blush turned him away. “Right.”

“Edward, please…” she sighed. “Please don’t hate me. Accidents happen, and…”

“Accident?” He trembled with fury. “Jasper did not accidentally shove his face between your legs and sample your...”

“Sample?” Alice screeched. “She came all over him!”

Bella bit her lip and groaned, lusty and low. She looked up aghast, hiding behind her hands. “I’m horrible.”

“No, he’s just that good.” Alice forced a towel into my hands. “How could you do this, Jazz?”

“Yes, brother.” Edward sneered. “How?”

I patted my face and neck, avoiding their eyes.

There was no safe way to admit Bella’s menstruating scent summoned the abstaining monster within me, how her arousal tripled this time each month, inundating my gift.

No good way to describe how she whimpered and thrashed as she slept tonight, her cries echoing in the empty house, cloaking me in desire.

No polite way to admit I flew upstairs, pushed her bikinis aside, and buried my mouth in her pulsing sticky folds, lapping and licking her awake. How she gasped in surprise but begged for release, fisting my hair as I tongued her deep. How she called his name and I didn’t care because there was blood and it was glorious.

She was glorious.

There was no proper way to say that.

Any of that.

So I did the only proper thing I could.

I ran.

Red dress. Check. Black stilettos. Check. Red lips, brown contacts, favorite black lace. Check, check, check. Edward left a note next to my keys. “Have fun, sweetheart. Make it good for me, okay?”

-Always do, handsome.-

Tonight’s dinner is brought to me by Grey Goose. This poor bastard was already four shots in before I hunted him at the bar.

“What’s your name, sugar?” he asks, standing to get close.

“Whatever you want it to be, cowboy,” I answer, knowing my voice alone will do things to his body nothing else could. Edward is somewhere close by watching, so I put on a show. I lift my knee and rub my thigh on Cowboy’s jeans. I tip my head back when I laugh as he leans in to inhale my scent.

We’re biologically stimulating each other in ways only my kind can sense. I can already smell the arousal and adrenaline in his blood. The combination makes me dizzy with thirst and anticipation.

Back at the house, Cowboy’s hands are all over me. I let him lift me by my ass as we stumble through the door.

-Honey, I’m home.-

I know he’s here now, watching and waiting.

I let Cowboy have a few kisses. He tosses me on the bed and mistakes my breathless moans for sexual desire.

Feeding is the strongest aphrodisiac for our kind, and Edward can’t handle it. He can’t wait to have me. He makes his presence known before Cowboy can undress me.

-Fuck me, he’s already stroking himself.-

I straddle Cowboy and pin his hands. I flash my husband a victory smile right before I sink my teeth into Cowboy’s neck.

“Beautiful Isabella, you’re playing with your food again.”

“No, baby,” I answer, running my tongue over my teeth. “He was playing with me.”

TLS Fics of the Week 10/15 - 10/21/2013: The Fab Five are up!


Compass by SparklingWand
https://fictionpad.com/author/SparklingWand/stories/623/Compass
CompassEleven years has passed since Dr. Isabella Swan last spoke with her childhood chum, first officer Edward Cullen. One flight to her new home changes that. With the help of a tiny red compass, they find themselves on a journey of friendship, hope, love, and betrayal. "You're my compass. My one true north." Rated M

Reviewed by: Twific Crackmum

From the opening lines of the prologue, you know this story is going to be a roller-coaster ride. Survivors are being brought into a hospital, following a plane crash, and Dr Isabella Swan is frantically looking through the carnage searching for someone. The words gave me a chill, like it was a 9/11 scenario all over again.

And so begins Compass by SparklingWand.

From there we flashback in time to 1998, and the end of high school, where "Izzy" Swan and her best friend, Edward Cullen, have know each other nearly all their lives. Theirs is a relationship built on trust, humour and genuine friendship.While they have both felt attraction towards the other, neither has acted upon it for fear of ruining their unique relationship. Shy and bookish Izzy stood by, watching from afar while girls threw themselves into Edward's path,remaining firm friends with him despite the obstacles. But as high school ends, decisions have to be made about the next step in their lives. Izzy heads to pre-med at NYU, whilst Edward dreams of becoming a pilot. As they ready themselves to leave and move on to the next stage of their lives, it seems their feelings for one another will remain unrequited. For a parting gift, Edward gives Izzy a plastic compass—a small toy from the bottom of a Cracker Jack box.

"Let this compass lead you back home. Let it lead you back to me. Forever and always".

Although they try to keep in touch, the inevitability of time, distance and work means that they gradually lose touch with each other.

But Izzy still keeps the little plastic compass over all this time.

Fast forward eleven years. After studying and working in New York, "Bella" embarks on a new chapter in her life, accepting a position as Head of Oncology at Exempla Lutheran Medical Centre in Colorado. Now an accomplished thirty-year-old, Bella leaves behind security—and a lover—to take up the prestigious position. It's while on the flight between New York and Denver that Bella receives a"blast from the past". The dulcet tones of First Officer Edward Cullen float out over the onboard PA system, and Bella is instantly transported straight back to her youth.

She manages to get a message through to the flight deck, with the aid of her trusty plastic compass, and a delighted Edward comes out to visit her. He asks her for a meeting and is thrilled to find out she is moving permanently to Denver, which is his homebase..

Too good to be true? What's a good story without some tension and angst?

This comes in the form of Edward's girlfriend. Yes, Edward is in a relationship, which leaves Bella somewhat sad and wistful about what might have been. An argument upon parting so many years before left some unresolved issues between them and some old wounds have been reopened. But their attraction to one another is clear.This is very frustrating for Edward, as he wrestles with the fact that he still has feelings for Bella, whilst being in a relationship with a woman he genuinely likes as well. Add into the mix a competitor for Bella’s affection—a pilot friend of Edward’s—and you get a situation where the tension is mounting by the minute.

The story has now reached the prologue, so the anxiety is running at fever pitch. I can't wait to see how it all pans out. If you haven’t read it yet, it’s at the perfect point to begin.



Heat by PrincessRachael
Edward is an Alpha wolf of a dying pack in a world where she-wolves no longer exist. The responsibilities of too many lives rest on his shoulders and he's running out of time. Edward/Bella. Graphic lemons, violence, sensitive themes. Rated M

My Five Daughters by Tea4tulips
Edward is a single father of five daughters living in New York. Bella is a southern girl who applies to be their new nanny. Perhaps she'll be able to help more than just the girls. AH. Daddyward. Fluff. Future
lemons. HEA. Rated M


Lost Half by LyricalKris
Even though she kept her feet on the ground, Bella always wanted to believe in the magic of true love. Edward could have taught her that kind of love existed. Too bad he showed up too late. Can you still find your soul mate when your soul has been completely shattered? Rated M

Late by Reyes139
He's late...again, I murmured under my breath while I watched the clock tick on with another minute wasted on waiting for the man I loved with everything I had. Isabella married the man of her dreams, loves him fiercely, but what happens when he forgets the vows he's said-when work and family become priority and the one you have at home gets tired of you always being late. Rated M

Reading them was pure bliss, but ranking them was torture.

Lol Thank you for sharing your words with us.

First Place

300 words

A slow lick of lips and a lazy, knowing smile—that’s all she sees, her boyfriend’s face so close, her peripheral vision blurs. Her eyes drift closed as he whispers across her eyelashes.

“Come on. Let me lick your pussy. I promise you’ll love it.”

A fingertip—slowly, very slowly—traces the damp sliver of white cotton between her thighs, a gentle circling of her clit through the fabric.

“I’m scared,” she whispers.

Finger still stroking, he kisses her trembling lips. “There’s nothing to be afraid of. I promise I’ll stop if you don’t like it.”

Her hips roll—barely lifting from the bed—and he feels the weakening of her resolve. Determined to take advantage of her waning resistance, but not wanting to startle her, he moves slowly, teasing her nipples as his lips journey downward, dropping sweet kisses around her belly button and then nuzzling the tiny white bow at the top of her pretty, white panties.

When he pulls at the fabric with his teeth, her eyes flicker downward, while his flash up to meet her tentative glance.

“Okay?” he says.

She swallows, wetting her lips and nodding uncertainly.

Very slowly, he moves lower still, kissing the damp cotton between her thighs, then lapping at it with his tongue. Her back arches and he smiles, sensing his imminent victory. Dipping a finger inside the cotton, he carefully pulls her panties out of the way and gazes at her perfect, pink pussy.

“Heaven,” he whispers, licking his lips and then slipping his tongue inside her.

She gasps and tilts her pelvis up. “More,” her body says. Eager to please, he sweeps his tongue upward, darting across her clit with the tip of his tongue, again and again.

She moans and slips her fingers into his hair.

Sweet victory.

White fucking cotton. I never thought it would be my kryptonite and it figures that she would be wearing it the first time I see her without clothes. All my friends talk about the sexy shit their girls wear… silk and barely there panties, bras that barely cover their tits… but I will take white cotton on Bella any day of the week.

The little innocent bow hovering between her hips taunts me as I lay between her legs. Sliding my fingers along her thighs, I ease them further apart to make room for my shoulders. I gaze up her body... hair splayed across my pillow, lip caught between her teeth, hands cupping her breasts, thumbs skimming over her nipples as she watched me, waiting to see what I would do. She is the picture of decadence… in white fucking cotton.

I feel the heel of her foot at my shoulder, digging into the muscle attempting to pull me closer, and as I hover over her I groan, her heat barely concealed by the fabric.

"Fuck, baby, you're wet and I haven't even gotten my tongue on you... in you." I whisper the words against her thigh, teeth nipping the sensitive skin, tongue soothing.

“Please, Edward.” Her moan fills the heated silence.

I slowly lean into her, slipping my tongue over the already damp cotton, pushing it into her, tasting her for the first time. I take one glance up the planes of her body at that first touch of my tongue and teeth… her head is pressed back, neck arched. And then I slide my teeth gently over her clit, my nose dragging along the fabric, inhaling her scent, feeling her heat against my mouth. It is perfection and I know I will never have my fill.


Third Place

Honeybee Meadows

-------------------

There’s blue satin.

Pink lace and black ribbons. Polka dots. Hearts. Silk and ruffles, but the kind I like the best are cotton. Plain. Simple. The kind she wears when I make plans and she thinks she has the house to herself.

She’s supposed to.

But I walked two miles to get here, drunk and horny, and she’s wearing cotton.

I shed most of my clothes and crawl onto the bed, the mattress shifting. She sighs and rolls to her stomach, letting me drag my mouth up her spine and dip my fingers into the waistband of those fucking cotton panties as she exhales.

“I thought you were staying out?”

“Fuck, baby,” I grunt, fondling the fabric. “I couldn’t stay away.”

I bunch and tug and pull until the underwear is slipping between her ass cheeks, tight up against the part of her that smells so fucking good. She shifts again, pushing right back against the pressure. A kiss to each cheek, one right over the crack where all that fabric has disappeared, and I flip her over, impatient for more.

My dick might be totally drunk and worthless, but my mouth sure fucking isn’t.

With the fabric stretched tight enough, I can see everything. I wrap my hand in her underwear and tug it tight until her lips appear. Until there’s a crease buried in the middle, the cotton damp and dark. I pull harder, watching as the cotton slips between soft hair and flushed red skin, and I fucking yank that fabric until it’s riding her clit as hard as I wished she was riding my face.

“Please, Edward,” she moans, squirming. “Don’t tease.”

“You asked for it,” I murmur, lips to the fabric. “If you wanted fucking, you should have worn something frilly. Cotton is a tease.”

Honorable Mention

Capricorn75

“I don’t know, Bella. It just seems…ick. What if it smells weird or something? What if I don’t like the taste?”

“Oh my god, quit fucking whining and get down there, Cullen! You owe me. Now more blow jobs until you at least try to reciprocate!”

With a pout on his face, Edward made his way down his girl’s body. He tried to drag it out and stall as much as possible. A few languid sucks on each nipple, delving his tongue into her bellybutton, kisses trailing along her hipbones…

Finally, he reached no man’s land. It looked innocent enough, covered by white cotton panties with a little bow. But looks could be deceiving. His face had never been this close before. He’d never had any reason or desire to go so low. Sure, Bella blew him regularly and enthusiastically. But Edward was a virgin when it came to giving oral. He would have been fine retaining that status. But Bella had plans to change that. What started as little hints about what she wanted grew into flat-out demands. Edward wasn’t stupid enough to lose the best thing that ever happened to him over a mere sex act. But at the same time, this was no mere sex act.

This was muff diving. Munching the carpet. Dining at the Y. Eating a tuna taco. None of which made it sound any more appetizing or appealing.

Closing his eyes, Edward brought his face down to the warm cotton and breathed in.

And breathed in again. The scent was musky and excited him on a base level. His eyes and mouth both opened. His tongue reached out and rubbed against her panties, lips following. Bella’s excitement was obvious, even through the material.

“Bella,” he rasped. “Take these off, now. I want more!”

Fic of the Week 10/08/13 - 10/14/13: The Fab Five are Up!



The Keepsake by Windchymes
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7562914/1/The_Keepsake
Some things you never forget, they just hurt too much to remember.
Twilight - Rated: M

Reviewed by: Dolly Reader

Some things you never forget, they just hurt too much to remember.

Whenever I see an alert from Windchymes show up in my inbox I literally make a happy face and start clapping.  Windchymes has consistently written AU stories that take the framework of Twilight and twist them to a new direction.  I have appreciated her Bellas that have a strength and determination to withstand conflict and communicate what they want.  Her Edwards are loving and caring.

When The Keepsake arrived I rapidly clicked over excited to begin a new journey.  As the story opens, we find Bella newly arrived and unpacking her boxes in her apartment at University.  Her pal, Jake is there to lend a hand.  While going through her books she discovers her well-worn copy of Wuthering Heights and pages fall to the floor.

But before I put it in the rubbish I shake it out gently over the floor.

"What are you doing?" Jake asks.

"I had a bookmark I really liked but I lost it ages ago. I'm just checking for it before I throw the book away."

Jake looks towards the shelves where the other books sit. "What's it look like?"

"A leather strip with Celtic patterns on it."

The book yields nothing except another couple of loose pages.

"Where's the last place you saw it?" He stands and walks to the shelves.

"Can't remember. It was before..." I stop for a second. "It was in junior year."

Bella settles into her routine of being a student and stops off at the campus library.  As she is leaving one night she makes a most interesting discovery.

...my attention is drawn to the carpet and I stop.

My bookmark is lying on the floor.

I stare at it for a moment, knowing it can't really be mine. There are probably hundreds like it.
I bend and pick up the strip of tan leather with its Celtic patterns of black dye. Some of the black is missing from the border around the edges, just like mine. Bewildered and confused I look absently at my bag. Had it been in there all along, only to fall out now? I shake my head, no; I've only had this bag since Christmas. I decide the bookmark probably isn't mine. I turn it over and in the bottom corner see the tiny, faded single letter drawn in pen...B

...

I hurry to the desk and she processes my loan. I shove the book in my bag and head out the door. It's almost dark outside, the lights from the building blaze brightly and I stand under them, still staring at the bookmark as it lays across my palm, still trying to find a reason, an explanation...that elusive anything.

...

Suddenly, the hair on the back of my neck stands up. My skin pebbles in goosebumps and my body is alert. In the silence around me I hear the echo of footsteps and look up. I watch the figure come out of the gloom and as he comes down the path, before I can see his face clearly I know...it's in the set of his shoulders and the tilt of his head. And the way he walks...

It's Edward Cullen.

After three years of being apart, Bella sees Edward again for the first time.  She is completely dumbfounded to realize that he has no remembrance of her. It isn’t long after returning to her apartment that Bella receives some very unexpected visitors who carry some incredibly startling information.

Carlisle puts a careful, calming hand on my upper arm and I stop. His voice is gentle but firm when he speaks.

"Bella, Edward has gone to enormous trouble to block out something incredibly painful, and I believe he's done this purely to survive. So, he needs to remember in his own time, when his subconscious believes he's ready to handle it, and not before. Obviously I can't tell you what to do, but if you speak with Edward again I must stress that it would be better if you didn't tell him you have a shared past, or what has happened between you. It could do him a lot more harm than good."



Just as defeat and desolation begin to wash over me, a tiny spark of light comes through the gloom – a small beacon of hope.

"He came back for my bookmark," I say softly, sitting up straight and lifting my eyes to look at Carlisle, then Alice. "That must mean something, mustn't it?"

Carlisle smiles, surprise in his eyes, and Alice grins.

"In that case," Carlisle smiles wider, "I suggest you let nature take its course."

And so it begins, a new dance of discovery between Edward & Bella.  But in The Keepsake, Bella is the one with the answers and the knowledge of what has been.  She walks the fine line of engaging Edward at his pace and revealing herself to him as if they had never been together before.  Edward finds himself being intrigued by Bella’s difference from the other students.  As he reflects upon his actions we learn,

He had gone back to school and watched her from a distance, determined to discover that she was actually boring and dull and not the silver lining to his constant cloud cover. But he had discovered just the opposite. She was different. And she was special...to him. He realised that the first time he saw her stumble over a tree root and his hands shot out reflexively to catch her, even though he was on the other side of the campus lawn. And the realisation was compounded when he heard her laughing with some other students in the corridors of the history department. The sweet sound warmed him like nothing else, he'd found himself wanting to know what she found so funny.

But sometimes she looked sad, he thought. His vampire eyes would see expressions in her eyes and on her face that he didn't understand...but he wanted to understand, and that confused him as much as anything else.

I’m so excited to see Edward’s journey of re-discovery and how his actions will change with his new experiences behind him.  How will his concern and curiosity about her emerge into love?  What will their new experiences together bring them?  Without a doubt, I’ll be devouring every word and golden moment that Windchymes gifts us with.

Dead Like You by Readingmama-rec'd by Amy Lawrence
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9193842/1/
Twilight characters in the Dead Like Me Universe. (Don't need a knowledge of DLM) Isabella Swan thought she could get away from the life that was planned for her. What she got was a death that would be repeated far more than she ever wanted.

Drinking Problems by Badjujube-rec'd by Amy Lawrence
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9112829/1/Drinking-Problems
"How can you teach a vampire to abstain from humans?" I asked Carlisle. "Starve them and take them to the zoo?" He shook his head at me and smiled. "Rehab," he said. Rehab for vampires. It was the worst idea I'd ever heard. Rated M

Heat by PrincessRachael-rec'd by Amy Lawrence
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9441302/1/Heat
Edward is an Alpha wolf of a dying pack in a world where she-wolves no longer exist. The responsibilities of too many lives rest on his shoulders and he's running out of time. Edward/Bella. Graphic lemons, violence, sensitive themes. Rated M

Late by Reyes139-rec'd by Sherry Franklin Neal

He's late...again, I murmured under my breath while I watched the clock tick on with another minute wasted on waiting for the man I loved with everything I had. Isabella married the man of her dreams, loves him fiercely, but what happens when he forgets the vows he's said-when work and family become priority and the one you have at home gets tired of you always being late. Rated M

Lost Half by LyricalKris-rec'd by Capricorn75
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8390065/1/Lost-Half
Even though she kept her feet on the ground, Bella always wanted to believe in the magic of true love. Edward could have taught her that kind of love existed. Too bad he showed up too late. Can you still find your soul mate when your soul has been completely shattered? Rated M

Over a quarter of a century separates single-mother Bella Swan from her hormone-riddled adolescence.

Rendered by Adair7-rec'd by Susan Q Susan
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9617747/1/Rendered

It's Flash Fic Friday!


Each Friday a new prompt will be posted along with the previous week's winners.
What exactly is a Flash-Fic? It's pretty much a spur of the moment, tiny story, prompted by words, images or silliness. Not sure if you've ever been on twitter when this has happened, but it's pretty awesome when it does. It also happens often in threads, with a combination of people contributing.

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: Edmazing

THIS WEEK'S NEW PROMPT


You will have until next Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST to submit your entry.

Please leave your submission in the comment section at the bottom of the post using this format:
Your name (use your Twitter, Facebook or FFN name)
Word count
Your link to your FFN profile if you choose to share it
Submissions will be judged on Thursdays and on Friday the winning entry will be posted here, on the TLS blog.
This feature is open to everyone, so come one, come all!

LAST WEEK'S PROMPT AND WINNERS CHOSEN BY Jaime Arkins


Thank you so much to everyone who submitted entries for me this week I loved them!

1st Place

“Take out your tits,” he says, pushing my legs open and standing between them. “I want to see them.”

I can feel the pressure of the skirt against my legs – tight and straining and almost painful.

“Fuck you,” I all but spit. “You can’t just come in here demanding whatever the fuck you want. And what? I’m just supposed to be ready and waiting whenever the mood strikes you? Well, I’ve got news for you. I’m not your girlfriend. And I’m not some subservient little whore who wets her panties every time you cast a glance in my direction. If you want that, you should go back to work. I’m sure that assistant of yours would be more than willing to comply.”

His green eyes flare with a golden heat around his dilated pupils. His breath, hot and sweet, brushes across my face as he lets out a controlled groan. But the frustration is there, boiling just beneath the surface of his always intact restraint.

“Her tits are too small. They wouldn’t feel as good wrapped around my dick as yours.” He says it so casually I can’t help the gasp that escapes me. It turns into a moan the moment he pushes his hand up my skirt, cupping me possessively. “And don’t lie to me again. Your panties aren’t just wet, baby. They’re soaked. Now, take out your tits.”

“No.”

“I don’t need you to be subservient,” he whispers as he leans in. “If I want something, I’m man enough to take it. And this flimsy little shirt won’t stand in my way.”

I reach out and run my hands up along his stomach and chest; my hands fist in his hair at the nape of his neck, making him hiss. “Then take it.”

2nd Place

She shrieks, almost slipping and falling down as she rounds their tiled kitchen table.

Male laughter sounds, playfully sinister, close behind. He’s absolutely going to fucking catch her. And when he does, he’s going to show her.

She races in socked feet out of the kitchen and past the stairs. She squeals, feeling his fingers as they try to latch and catch at her shoulder only to grip at thin air.

He’s playing with her. He let her go. This is too much fun. She fucking knows.

His girl’s in a mood. A challenge-your-horny-boyfriend kind of mood. The kind of challenge she wants him to win. He loves a good challenge, especially then.

She giggles and runs, loving this chase. His running-after-her making her heart race. She laughs and looks back, only to stop in her place. Her sexy boyfriend is not to be traced.

Oh fuck!

Where the hell did he go?

Then suddenly she screams, airborne, “Arg! Edward!” His fine ass now in her face.

He struts slow through their den and over to their plush couch. He flounces her down, landing her on her back. Then he shouts, “You fucking dare me woman?” Large hands fist her shirt at its V-neck. His man-muscles tense. Then he locks stares, and says quiet, “Get ready, Bella. I accept your dare…and win.”
Riiiiiiiiiiiiippp!

3rd Place

"Ow!" He yelped as my teeth sank into the skin on his neck. "What the fuck, Bella?"

His erection was pressed against my thigh. I shrugged against him.

"How am I supposed to explain a bite mark when we go back out there?"

"Tell them a vampire bit you," I giggled. Our coworkers would know what he had been doing in here.

Oh well. They wouldn't know it was with me.

He growled as he brought his lips to the place above my collar bone and began sucking.

Hard.

"Oh!"

My eyes rolled back into my head. He ground himself into me and dragged his fingers up my chest. After a minute, he pulled back and laughed.

"What is so funny, Edward?" I hissed.

He pointed to the spot his lips had been. "Revenge. Nice hickey, by the way."

I glared at him. There was no way they wouldn't see it.

"Asshole." I reached up and stuck my fingers in the pocket of his shirt. Then, I pulled until I heard it rip.

There was silence as his jaw dropped and his eyes slowly trailed down to the giant tear in his shirt. There was definitely no hiding that. I but my lip as I saw the muscles in his chest. Then, I giggled.

"Sucks for -" Before I could finish, his hands grabbed my shirt and ripped it from my body. I looked down to see my black bra, as well as the rest of me, completely exposed.

This time my reaction mirrored his.

"It looks like I've been attacked!"

His face was bright red as his body convulsed in laughter.

"Edward!" I slapped his chest. "What am I suppose I do?

"Who cares?" He brought his lips to mine.

We were so fucked.
