Wow this story keeps getting better and better. I could just imagine edward's nerves etc as he made his way to the station.
I loved all the details - like how Ben was short, probably hired for the small space rescues.
I didn't catch on at first when the guys mentioned the shower in the corner- now of course it makes perfect sense. So Bella is the engineer! Friggin' brilliant!
I love how Jasper, Emmett, Jake, etc are Edward's collegues- amazing set up.
Edward is so cocky it's great for B to put him in his place. That bikini and cut off shorts thing was so funny...but now it's not just edward that's turned on, bella is too.
The description of E hosing down the trunk under the sun was a stunning description.
The sexual tension is great and I'm glad B is a strong, smart woman.
I'm in love with this story- perfect chapter!

Terrific chapter. I find it interesting to learn this side of firefighting, instead of seeing what I can on TV through movies or just from the news on actual fires and I am looking forward to learning more.
Talk to you soon, take care and thanks!

The beginning of a wonderful story, and considering what your hubby does for a living, a terrific subject from which to write!
Looking forward to seeing what happens, and also, that poem was beautiful and certainly fitting a firemans job.
Thanks and take care! Read you on Twitter! :)

Loving this story, Girl! I can't wait to read about his first day and meeting the rest of the 'team'. No idea if that is the right word but I am looking so very forward to learning more terminology and behind the scene info. Thanks for an awesome beginning to what looks to be and exciting and informative story! ~KC

I was a little hesitant to continue on further with this
story...Not because it wasn't good...Quiet the contrary in
fact...I thought it would be a refreshing change of pace from
the normal fics I've come across and read...However the
heaviness of the Prologue and it's depth of emotion had me in
tears...I have several family members that have dedicated
their lives to this profession and it hit a little to close to
home...My Uncle Bill,Aunt Janice and their two children Winnie
and Matthew all work at the same firestation where my Uncle is
Several months ago they were called to a was 2:18
in the household consisted of a man,his wife and
their 13 month old baby they arrived to the house
noone had managed to make a way out sides of the
house were engulfed with all three fire trucks made
their way two of the trucks fought the blazes
outside one soaked a broken window as three firemen entered to
try and find the home four agonizing minutes
later two firemen emerged from the window with the man and his
third fireman had yet to firemen lead the
couple to the Medics all the while they were screaming,begging
the men to find their precious only allowed one
fireman to reenter the the man reappeared in sight
of the other firemen he was dragging my Uncle Bill who was
trying to grab ahold of anything he could for leverage to keep
from exiting the was useless and after being pulled
from the window the other men were restraining him to keep him
from situation had become to dangerous for them
to be inside any they could do was stand along side
their brothers and contain the raging infero as best they
less than two minutes after Bill had been dragged
from the house everything began to in that
instance the lives of those brave firemen would never be the
they stood there flooding the house with water,which
seemed to be doing no good,piercing screams began to penetrate
through the smoke filled firemen were useless in their
attempts to try and make a pathway with their shooting water
to where the sounds were coming was nothing more to do
but bear the agony of the screams until they eventually died
down and were no more.
After the fire had been reduced to nothing more than smoking
hot ash Uncle Bill walked the remains of the
.All to soon everyone there was brought to a
Bill stood motionless to the right side of the
rubble reaching him the men soon found the
reason for his pained stood there craddled in his
arms the charred body of the small angel he had tried so hard
to had been within three feet of the child
hasn't been the same of us have..
He continues to fight fires but now with such a fierceness
that he never had in the name of Baby
only human being to date he's ever lost in his more than 20
years as a quiet often visits where the house once
stood as well as the parents of little so to
remember just how important his job is than anything
cousin Matthew who is 20 and Bill's only son,who was also
there that day,has sworn to name his first born son after baby
If you go to the Johns Creek Fire Department where my Uncle
Bill is still Fire Chief and walk into his office you'll see
hanging on his wall a picture of a smiling 1 year old Zachary
.Under the picture is a plaque that simply says "Angels Are
The Reason".Hanging above is a golden fireman's hat with thick
black script and - Zachary Noel - across the front.
I can tell this story with such detail because I too was there
that and I had decided to have girl time and a
weekend of girly movies and we were in the middle of The
Notebook when the call came and I drove her were
hoping that by me taking her we could take less time to get
back home when she was things didn't go as
far it was the worst night of my life and the
memory of that night is something that as long as I live I'll
So with your Prologue being from a firemans' POV and being
trapped with that poor little boy I was caught off
was like a slap in the face and a rushing flood gate of bad
I realized that your entire story will probably
not be so heavy laiden and emotional and so I decided to
continue on and the thought of Edward in a fire
suit sliding down a pole.;-)...
Just one small the chapters that read as the
prologue does would it be possible to add a warning at the
beginning of the would better prepare the reader
to be cautious or abandoned the chapter all that
being said I can say I'm excited about your story and will be
anxiously awaiting an update..:-)..Sorry if I rambled..It's a
habit that comes when I'm excited...JW
