Here we go again! This was one of those niggling ideas that would NOT go away.
Once I shared my madness with my beta and pre-reader there was no hope. So blame them for this, because it's only through their insistent pushing to publish that it got developed and is here!
This is an Edward that will make you want to hit him over the head with a VERY hard object at times, and cuddle up with him, stoking his hair lovingly at others.
It's short chapters, bit of a drabble, and I am hoping to publish daily, but don't shout if I don't - I will try.
Have fun with it, enjoy the ride...enjoy Edward, and watch out for his language.
Huge thanks to my crazy duo - myonlyheroin (beta) and barbr9 (pre-reader) There's no turning back now!
I waited excitedly, clinging my newly acquired clip board to my chest. I'd already read the directors notes for the day and near enough memorised the script.
This was it. This was about to happen. I was so nervous.
I had never been a lucky person, no four leaf clovers ever found their way to me; no pot of gold waiting at the end of the rainbow. Hell - if I ever reached the end of a rainbow I would probably find my ex-boyfriend.
How the hell I ever got picked for work experience on this movie set would always remain a mystery to me. But I didn't care. If I had any money left over from my scavenging student days I'd have paid every penny I had just to be here, never mind included in the production crew. And all my excitement was because he was in the film.
But here I was, waiting on the set of 'Starshine', the most eagerly anticipated film to be released next year, waiting for the star of the film to appear for his first scene of the day.
My eyes darted to the studio door as it flew open. There he stood, glaring around the room at everyone before he strolled forwards.
Nothing could have prepared me for the actual physical presence of this man. The television interviews, the films, even the pictures that regularly appeared in magazines, did not do him justice. He was soul meltingly gorgeous. A blue shirt hung from his broad shoulders , black jeans hugged his slim hips and his tall frame was somehow accentuated by the casual way he had hooked his thumbs into his front pockets.
I stared, trance like and unabashed as he literally swaggered into the room. He almost looked as if he was growling at the crew as he passed them. I was unable to tear my eyes away from him.
As he headed towards Jake, the director, his eyes flashed over to me.
"Who's this?" he snapped as he inclined his head in my direction.
"Work experience," Jake informed him.
His hands pushed through his hair, seemingly in frustration. I nearly whimpered out loud at seeing him caress his locks – how many times had I seen him do that in interviews and wished it was me who could run my hands through it.
"Fuck!" he snarled, "Today's already up shit creak and then we have fucking work experience watching it all. I hope she's signed the confidentiality clause. Because if she hasn't someone had better kick her scrawny ass out of here."
His eyes wandered over to me again, his face set in a stony expression. This wasn't how I imagined he would be. He was never like this in the interviews and when he was out in public. Was this the real him?
His cold eyes pierced into mine as he continued with his rant. "I bet she has posters of me all over her bedroom wall – don't you sweetheart?"
I gulped audibly at his question that seemed more like an accusation. I only had one poster of him and that would be ripped to the floor and thrown in the rubbish bin when I got home.
My fantasy had just disappeared – he was nothing like the man I had thought he was.
A predatory smirk pulled at his mouth before he turned back to Jake. "Let's get on with this shit then. I don't have all fucking day."
That was my introduction to Edward Cullen.
So what do you think to him?
Love him or hate him?
