Thanks to einfachmich & kdc2239 for prereading.


With Bella seated on the edge of his desk, Carlisle tried to ignore the thrumming of her heart and the pinks of her cheeks as he gently poked and prodded, checking to make sure an artery hadn't been severed.

"A few stitches should do it," he said as he slowly began pulling glass from the wound.

She shivered, and something inside him shifted. He didn't hesitate, just rubbed his hands briskly up and down the tops of her arms. It felt wrong to be touching her like this, but when his eyes met hers, he knew. She'd felt it too.


A/N:

So, this is the end of this adventure! New things are around the corner, but in the mean time, if you are looking for something different than what I typically write, check out my entry – Dancing on the Edge – along with the others in the Beyond the Pale contest: http: / www . fanfiction . net /u/2431148/BeyondThePale

I also submitted a little something in the Season of Our Discontent Angst contest. It's near and dear to my heart, and I can't wait to post my entry to my own profile. Until then, check out the great entries that are already there! http: / www . fanfiction . net/ ~seasonofourdiscontent

Lastly, I contributed the first chapter of my new story, Denial – Not Just a River in Egypt – in the Fandom Gives Back Breaking Dawn compilation. I will be posting the full story after the new year. Please take a minute to donate to this very important cause. With just $5 you can receive the full compilation. Childhood cancer is devastating, and I know together we can all make a difference! http :/ /thefandomgivesback . blogspot . com/

Thanks so much for reading all these entries and more to come!
