FB - Chapter 15 Teaser

Then she sighed. “You can talk to me you know. I know things are strange for you right now, but you can trust me, and you can trust Edward.”

When she said Edward’s name, my entire body reacted with a weird mixture of fear and something else I really couldn’t name. “I…”

I didn’t know what to say. There was no way I could tell her what I was feeling and why. She knew my master. Worked for him even. No. I couldn’t share those things with her. I trusted her, but I didn’t trust her, if that made sense. And there I was again in the place I seemed to constantly live in, confusion.

Finally, I heard her sigh on the other end. “Okay. I won’t push. Edward would have my head if I did. But will you promise you’ll call me if you want to talk?”

I heard the pleading in her voice and couldn’t say no. “Yes.”

“Good,” she paused. “Okay, well I’d better get back to work. I’ll see you later, Isabella.”

Alice didn’t wait for me to say goodbye, she just ended the call. I was really glad she hadn’t pushed me. I didn’t think I could say no to her indefinitely, but I didn’t want to have to either lie to her or anger Master.

FB - Chapter 14 Teaser

The doors opened, and we walked down a short hallway until we reached a door with two decorative steps in front. I knocked, and in less than a minute the door was opened revealing a bouncing Alice.

Alice was no longer in work clothes but had donned a little black skirt and frilly tank top. She managed to pull off the dressy casual look well, even with her current bare feet.

Before I knew what was happening, she had pulled us both inside with a squeal and enveloped the woman at my side in a hug. Isabella’s reaction was delayed for no more than two seconds before she hugged Alice back, and I released a deep sigh, relaxing just a little more. Maybe tonight would be okay.

We were ushered farther into the house and found Jasper in the kitchen moving expertly as he jumped from one dish to the other. He looked up. “Hey Edward,” he smiled at me and then shifted his attention to the woman Alice had her arm wrapped around. “And this must be Isabella.” Jasper wiped his hands on the towel he had tucked at his waist and came around the island. Extending his hand, he said, “It’s good to finally meet you.”

Perspective Outtakes

Here is the chance for you to tell me what you want.

For those of you who have been reading Perspective you know that it is quickly coming to an end. (Okay well not so quickly, but you get my meaning.) There are only 3 chapters left!

At the end of the Jasper/Alice outtake I posted last week, I asked what other's you'd like to see from the story. So far the feedback as been sparse. I've had a couple requests for chapter 24 from Bella's POV and then I got another saying anything from Alice/Jasper again.

There has got to be more opinions out there. Thirty nine chapters are posted!

So please, PLEASE, tell me what you'd like to see. I'm not picky, you can leave it here, the Twilighted thread, or as a review on the story.

FB - Chapter 13 Teaser

Just then, I saw Esme come through the door. I was hoping she hadn’t heard anything I’d said, but my hopes were dashed when I saw her face. Turning to her, I said in the calmest voice I could manage, “Thank you for dinner, it was delicious as always.” Without saying another word to my uncle, I walked to my car and got in.

Isabella sensed my mood and was incredibly still. I waited until I’d settled my emotions before saying. “You did well today, Isabella. I’m very proud of you.”

“Thank you, Master,” she said, but I noticed her posture had not relaxed in the least.

“What’s on your mind?”

“Did I…” she paused. “Did I do something to upset him?”
At her question, I felt my anger at my uncle come to the surface once again. She did not need this. “No. He was upset with me. You did nothing wrong.”

FB - Chapter 12 Teaser

I pushed myself out of bed. I did not want to anger him this morning. Last night had been so very nice, and I wanted it again.

I dressed quickly in the tank top and shorts he’d laid out for me and headed up the stairs. Just as he’d said, he was waiting for me.

When I entered the room he was facing away from me, but that soon changed. It seemed as if he could tell I was there because not more than five seconds passed before he turned around. I immediately dropped my eyes.

He walked toward me slowly, deliberately. My body went on alert as he got closer. I had no idea what he was going to do to me here.

My master stopped directly in front of me. “Good morning, Isabella. Did you sleep well?”

“Yes, Master. Thank you.”

His hand came up to lift my chin. I knew by now that he wanted me to look at him. My eyes found his and waited. He didn’t make me wait long. “I’m glad to hear that. I was going to introduce you to my gym this morning, but it seems you’ve already become acquainted.”

Perspective - Outtake Teaser

Some of you might have wondered what happened after Jasper left Edward in the middle of Chapter 37. Now you don't have to wonder. :)

My arms wrapped around her small frame, and I flipped her over onto her back. Our tongues battled, our lips pulled and sucked trying desperately to get closer, to become one.

Using all my strength, I pressed against her, letting her feel all of me. My little pixie growled, urging me on.

It was all the encouragement I needed to begin ripping away at the thin layers of clothing separating us. I registered the ripping of fabric and then the feel of skin.

My fingers dug roughly into her flesh, bringing her hips up to meet mine. Jeans still covered my lower half, but she quickly took care of that.

Once I was free, I knew I needed to be inside her without delay. And with one strong thrust, I was.
