No amount of cleansing could wash away the guilt I feel, but hopefully someday I will earn her forgiveness. ExB; Drabble-ish; Romance/Angst; NC-17.

I own nothing.

Drench: deluge, drown, flood, immerse, saturate, seethe, soak, submerge.


"Yo, E. Are you coming to Alice's party tonight?" Jasper asks as soon as I answer my phone.

I've been back from summer vacation for less than 48 hours and I'm already being hassled to go to some lame-ass party.

"I don't know, man, I'm still jet lagged for the trip. Why is she having a party now anyways? Why not next weekend when school starts, and she can invite the entire student body?"

He sighs, and I hear him moving around and shuffling some things. "Something about her cousin moving into town and wanting to meet new people."

I roll my eyes, disinterested in hearing about Alice's stupid cousin. Poor schmuck, he has no idea what he's in for.
Forks isn't the kind of place you move to, it's the kind of hellhole you move out of as soon as you have that diploma in your hands.

"Fine, whatever. I'll see you there." I figure I might as well get another party under my belt before school starts.

Getting shitfaced while jet lagged is like killing two birds with one stone. If I'm going to feel like shit, might as well do it thoroughly.

"Alright, dude. See ya there then."

I have no idea what kind of hell I'm actually walking into.

Moving is a sadistic bitch on heroin.


So... I have no patience... I've got 25 chapters written, 17 of them already beta'd. Update schedule, how about we try 3 per week? M, W, F, how does that sound?

Let me know...
