|My Secret Admirer Is A Soldier
Author: RoseyPattinsonCullen PM
I received a letter every two weeks, all addressed from far off Iraq. He said we knew each other, but gave no hints. I guess I had to wait and wonder before I would know, who my Secret Admirer might be.Rated: Fiction M - English - Romance/Family - Bella & Edward - Chapters: 5 - Words: 6,087 - Reviews: 114 - Favs: 95 - Follows: 160 - Updated: 05-02-13 - Published: 06-21-12 - id: 8242242

Chapter 4: Getting To Know You
After finally getting the kids to bed, saying their prayers then going through their million and one questions on when their Uncle Em would be back I headed off to my office to sit down and write. I started off with Emmett's letter first since his would be the easiest.
Dear Brother Bear,
Hello Em! How are you doing out there? I hope you are well. We miss you like crazy. The kids the most I think, lol, but you know how they are. I just wanted to let you know that I am going to take your advice and get to know this Secret Admirer guy, but just so ya know, if it comes back to bite me in the ass I am sooooo kicking the ever loving shit out of you.
I don't know if Rose has told you or not, but I have been getting loads of calls for interviews. Let's hope that I get a job soon, I'll be so happy to stop digging into my back up funds to pay bills. You know how I am with that money Em.
J.J. has taken it upon himself to be man of the "houses," yeah I said houses. He thinks that he needs to man up at yours and Rose's house too since Dylan is only 2 years old. I told him he was a great kid when he wanted to be. He tells me that he wants to make his Uncle Em proud that he could take care of us all. Silly boy. I swear for only being 6 years old, he is well beyond mature for his age. I told him that you would be proud of him no matter what.
My parents called last week and said they would be joining Rose and I out at the summer house in St. Petersburg this summer, which will help out a lot with the kids. I hope that if I get a job by then that they will allow me to take that month off for the summer.
Well it's getting late and I still have one more letter to write. I miss you sooo much. I'll take care of Rosie and Dylan like always and we will hopefully see you for a couple of weeks in May. Love you big bro. Hope to hear from you soon.
After finally getting Emmett's letter out of the way, I sat there and pondered for a moment on what to write to my secret admirer. It wasn't as easy as you'd think. I could not think of anything to start off with, so I did the one thing I could think of and that was to call Rose.
I grabbed my cell off my desk and pressed the speed dial number for my best friend, after a few rings she finally answered.
"What is it hooker?" She asked with loads of humor and sarcasm.
"Well I kinda need your help Rose. I don't know how to start off this letter to my secret admirer; I don't want to put everything out there right off the bat. I want to start off slow…." I was begining to ramble, but Rose cut me off before I had a chance to.
"Hold on there tiger." She says with a laugh. "You don't have to worry about putting your whole life out there in one shot, you know." she giggled.
I let out the breath that I didn't know that I was holding then asked, "Well, what should I write then?"
"That's easy Bella, just start off with the basic stuff, like being a mom, that you are indeed interested in getting to know him and that you respect his wishes to remain anonymous." I could hear the smile in her voice, she was happy that I was actually going through with this.
"Ok, I can do that. Thanks so much Rose. I'll let you get back to what you were doing and I will talk to you tomorrow." After a final good night I hung up the phone and set to writing this letter.
Dear Secret Admirer,
Hell, I received your letter obviously, and decided to write you back. I would like very much to get to know you better and I can respect your desire to stay anonymous. So until you're ready to tell me who you are I would like to refer to you as S.A., it would be so much easier to write instead of "Secret Admirer" each time. I am rambling; I usually do when I am nervous, sorry about that.
Well I'll just start off by telling you a little bit about myself and if you don't mind I will post a few questions at the end to try to make this a little easier and then you can do the same. I am a mom of two kids Jacob and Alana, who are 6 and 4 years old. They are my pride and joy and I don't know what I'd do without them.
Rosalie, Emmett and I have been friends since we were small and they are more like family to me than just simply my friends.
My parents live in Forks, Washington where Rose, Em and I were born and raised. By the time we were in the third grade Em and Rose practically lived at my house we had a lot of fun together. We all graduated early and moved to Seattle for college when we were 16, my parents were a little hesitant at first, Em and Rose's parents didn't give a shit about them and basically signed guardianship over to my parents, but anyways back to my story. Just so you know I ramble, a lot, wait I think I told you that already, cue the blush and embarrassment.
When we went off to college my parents bought us an apartment just off campus at UW and graciously bought me a car as well. The only good thing Rose and Em's parents did for them was buy them cars when they were old enough to drive, which meant that we didn't need to rely on anyone for transportation.
We all graduated from college after only 2 years, we each decided to buckle down and doubled our class load, basically leaving us with no social life what-so-ever. We wanted to get out of Washington so badly that it was an easy sacrifice to make. By the time we were 17 all three of us had acquired degrees and were official college graduates. Em got a degree in Engineering, Rose in auto mechanics and me in office management. When Em turned 18 he enlisted in the military and that's how we ended up here in Tallahassee.
Oh my, it seems I have taken up so much time talking about my past before moving to Florida. I hope you are still interested in writing me and that you don't think I am too boring for you, it's nice to have a little mystery in my boring old life for once. I would understand if you were no longer interested though, I don't have the most interesting of lives.
Now for my questions:
Number one: what was your childhood like?
Number two: do you have any siblings?
Number three: are you still interested?
Well there you have it, my first letter to you. It's getting really late; the clock on my desk say's its 1 am, boy I need to get to bed. I hope to hear from you soon, but if I don't, like I said, I understand. Be safe over there and whatever Emmett has told you about me. IT'S ALL LIES! lol.
When I finished the letter I folded it up, wrote Secret Admirer's eyes only on the front (knowing Em he would try and read it.) and put it in the envelope with Em's. I pulled off the plastic backing that covered the stick part of the flap and folded it closed. I turned it over and wrote Emmett's name rank and the address of the base.
I turn out the light in my office and walked out, closing the door behind me as I went heading for my bedroom. The moment I snuggled down in my bed I let out a content sigh, pleased with myself, and drifted off into a dreamless sleep.
I see you made it down here with me. Hope this chapter was good, please leave me a review. Remember Reviews=Love. So send me love I look forward to them and I always try to reply to them all.
