TLS Special SNEAK PEEK Feature

The Lemonade Stand has spent years bringing you the best the fandom has to offer, and we are very excited to have the chance to offer you MORE. We've watched stories grow and develop from first post through COMPLETE in The Nursery, and now we're sharing previews of the stories that will soon be your new addiction.

This month, the talented coldplaywhore, author of the addictive stories American Girl and Heart of Stone, shares a little detail on her upcoming story Company Men with us.

Bella has had a rough couple of months. She lost her job and has zero hope of a finding a new one, her savings has run out and she’s days away from eviction. To top it all off, she’s also lost her wallet and can’t afford her coffee. What’s a girl to do? She would be crazy not to at least look into the job offer from the handsome stranger who covered her coffee bill, wouldn’t she? How far is she willing to go to change her life for the better?


“Miss Swan,” Edward says coolly as he reaches out his hand to me and I grasp it after standing up. “It’s a pleasure to see you again. Would you please follow me?”

I remain quiet as I follow closely behind Edward down the narrow hallway to a windowless boardroom at the end of their office. I can feel the glares of the men behind me, making me wonder if my panty lines are visible or something, but I refuse to smooth my hands across my ass and call further attention to it.  Edward holds the door open and ushers me in, as the men all gather around and Edward motions for me to sit at the front of the table.

“Thank you so much for considering me for this opportunity,” I say sweetly, trying to encourage conversation as everyone takes a seat. “Perhaps you could tell me a little bit more about what this job would entail?”

“Well Miss Swan… or can I call you Isabella?” Edward asks as I nod slightly, wondering how he knew that was my first name, after all I only told him my name was Bella. I suppose he could have just assumed correctly, right?  “First I’d like to introduce you to my associates.  The man directly to my right is Carlisle Cullen, Founder and CEO of our firm Cullen Worldwide. Across from him is Emmett McCarty, our CFO, and to your left is Jasper Whitlock, our President.”

“And what is it that you do, Edward?” I asked, genuinely intrigued now. If this were simply just an assistant position, surely there would be no need for the three biggest directors of the company to be sitting in the room.

“I’m the Chief Operating Officer, and also the head of our mergers and acquisitions department.”

“Sounds a little over my head, but not altogether boring,” I said with a laugh, hoping to break the tension in the room. I notice Emmett give a little smile and lean over to whisper something in Edward’s ear, but I can’t make it out.  “Well… how do you think I can be of service?”

“I’m going to be blunt with you Isabella. I’ve done some research into you since I first saw you last week at the coffee shop,” Edward admits, his hands now perched on the table in front of him as I try to process the fact that he has been looking into my background. “Though I really do need a new and trustworthy assistant, I can’t help but think that you have greater needs.”

“Such as?”

“Well, I do know that you are in the process of being evicted from your apartment, have not paid your student loan debts in several months and have had to sell quite a few of your possessions in order to feebly attempt to make ends meet.” I watched as Edward’s stoic face suddenly became a little more devious. “I think that we, being my associates and I, can assist you immensely.”

I straightened myself in the chair and looked straight at Edward, trying to hide the fact that I was thoroughly embarrassed to have my financial secrets known to the men in the room. “And how do you plan to do that?”

“In addition to hiring you part-time as my assistant, my associates and I would like to retain your services for the next year - to perform sexual favors for us – all of us.”
