Some of the girls in the upcoming countdown have provided some small teasers to keep ya all wanting and excited. So, here they are.
Teaser # 1-
Bella grabbed a beer, drinking it quickly. Before Edward could protest, she blurted out, "Board games!"
"You hate board games! Honey, you always lose and get sullen..."
"Let's make it fun!" She headed over to a chest and pulled out Battleship. "Strip Battleship!"
Edward looked at her in shock. His Bella was always a surprise. "Is this for real?"
He really hoped she was serious.
"Unless you don't want..."
Edward jumped up. "Let me make a fire. I don't want my sweet wife to be freezing when she's naked before me."
"I could win!" she protested.
Edward just laughed. Bella couldn't win a game, board or athletic, to save her life.
Teaser # 2 -
Edward looks at me, pleading, and I groan. "Bella, please; it's one night. Just one lousy little day in the year where I have an excuse to make you feel special. Where I can show you just how much I love you. I want to worship you thoroughly, and I can't do that with the kids in the house."
I bite my lip. "You really want to do something on Valentine's Day? Can't we just do it…the day after or something?" I ask quietly, also pleading with him.
He frowns. "Yes, I do. And if we do it on another day, it won't be the same." Edward replies, looking at me through narrowed, curious eyes. "Bella, why don't you want to? What aren't you telling me?"
I sigh again, looking away, toward the window. "My father, Hoody," I admit, not reallywanting to explain any further.
Of course, Edward won't let me just stop there. "What about him?" Edward asks, and his voice is closer now. I swallow, breathing in deeply as my throat tightens. Edward notices, pulling me into his arms and onto his lap. "Baby, tell me. What did he do?"
I take another deep breath and look up at Edward, tears in my eyes. "It's the day of love, Hoody, and Charlie blamed me for my mother's leaving. You do the math."
He sighs, and kisses my lips, knowing I won't explain anymore; at least not today. "All them more to make new memories," he mumbles.
Teaser # 3 -
As much as I wanted to be strong, I just couldn't. I did sneak a few glances into the dining room and watched Bella with her date. Even the word felt funny in my head. I wanted to be her date. I had berated myself all week long for my lack of courage and guts. If only I had asked her out first. She would have been mine.
Instead, I had to watch some smarmy guy with shaggy brown hair smile and laugh with Bella. He got to squeeze her hand and hold up his wine glass in a toast. He was privileged enough to stare at the vision that was Bella.
She looked absolutely stunning that night. Her hair was wavy and hung to the middle of her back. Her dress clung to her every curve and it looked so soft. I wanted to run my hands along her body and feel it for myself.
"Stare any harder and you'll burn a hole through her head." My sister's voice caused me to jump.
"What's your damage, Alice?" I scowled at her in the hopes that she would just get the fuck away from me.
But my wish wasn't granted, instead she stared at me, long and hard before she sighed and shook her head.
"It's not what you think," she stated sadly. "Before you jump to conclusions take a long hard look and then talk to her."
Teaser # 4-
Edward's laugh brings me out of the memory, and I focus my eyes to see
he's holding a wild daisy out toward me. I take it, a warm blush
creeping into my cheeks, and watch as he lies back in the long green
grass. "I still can't believe you punched her." I giggle, lying back
next to him and twirling the daisy between my fingers as he continues
talking. "I always knew you were a south paw, Bells."
We lay there for a minute, staring up at the sky and watching as the
clouds roll by lazily, and I begin to pluck the petals from my flower
one by one, just like I do with every one he gives me.
He loves me.
This is my favourite part of the day.
He loves me, not.
Hanging out in the meadow with Edward after school always helps me to
forget anything bad that's happened—not that every day is like today.
He loves me.
He's always known how to cheer me up whenever I'm having a bad day.
He loves me, not.
He's been my best friend my entire life, but recently I've begun to
look at him differently.
He loves me.
I only wish he felt the same way.
He loves me, not.
"Hey, you're ruining your flower!" Edward cries out playfully, looking
over at me.
He loves me.
I laugh, but I continue to pluck the petals. "Last time I give you
anything," he grumbles like usual.
He loves me, not.
A smile breaks out across my face as I look at the last petal; the
results of my little flower game are never the same more than once in
a row . . .
He loves me.
. . . until now.
Teaser # 5
But online, the deep colorful world full of enchanted creatures and quests, seduced her.
Evergreen, the High Wizard seduced her.
Everything innuendo turned to full on lust in words and the feelings were there for her, and he said they were there for him too.
Then there was the virtual sex.
Who knew little avatars could get it on?
Bella remembered the day she gasped at the computer screen as Evergreen started to disrobe. Little words on the screen saying, "I want you" and "Left click the clothing icon, baby. Let me see your enchantments."
Jacob never said that, vocally, literally, or virtually.
What he did say was, "Are you almost there, Bella, because I have a trade in five minutes and a quest in fifteen."
She should have known. He was still a low ranking Troll. He still had many quests to even become an Ork or Goblin.
It's not that hard.
Come to think of it, it often wasn't hard.
Anyway, it took Bella six months to get to the level she was and she had characters wanting and requesting her favor and help in their own quests.
Teaser # 6 -
Not really knowing what possessed her, but unable to stop herself, Isabella asked, "Edward, are you going to the Valentine's dance next week?"
"Oh man, I don't really want to talk about that," he replied back, his hands moving to his hair and fisting it.
"Why? Don't you like dances? I don't think I've ever seen you at one."
"Well, I have been to a few when I was younger, but they really are ridiculous to me. I see no point to them. They were never something that really interested me."
"So is that why you aren't going? Or…maybe…do you need a date?"
Edward's eyes flashed up toward Isabella's wondering just what she meant by that. There was no way she would go with him, was there?
Teaser # 7 -
The Hulk remained stoic for a few more seconds before reaching up to grasp his lapel and mumble something into it. After a second, he nodded to himself then pointed to a spot away from the walkway and motioned for them to wait there.
He was still to utter a single word to either of them.
"Unbelievable." Jasper muttered to her as they moved to stand away from the selectively mute doorman.
"Don't worry about it, Jasper. This place just screams 'douche'. Why in the hell would he think to bring her here?!"
"Emmett probably booked it months ago, and I doubt they'd turn Rose away." He shrugged, as he turned to face her.
At that moment, the heavens opened, and it began to rain. Heavily.
Teaser # 8 -
"I watched him get up and cut us slices of my cake. He didn't answer me and looked sort of pissed. When he sat down, I relaxed and saw he was trying to make the same effort. He took a bite of his cake and the chocolate dripped down the corner of his mouth.
I don't know why, but in that moment, I felt brave. I leaned forward and kissed the chocolate off the corner of his mouth. As I backed away, he pulled me closer and kissed me deeper.
He moved around the table, lifting me into his arms. I didn't even hesitate to wrap my arms and legs around him. He walked as we kissed and then set me on the counter. My hands rested on his shoulders, and he brought his forehead to mine."
Teaser # 9 -
"I missed this. Missed you. So badly, all the time – and as much as I've missed you, this? This feels like the most natural thing in the world. Like we've never stopped doing just this. Dammit, Bella...am I crazy?" he asked, pained almost in his confusion and apprehension. "Tell me it's not just me."
"It's not. It's not just you, I swear."
Teaser # 10 -
A while later, the fancy dinner I'd had brought in and the bottle of wine were both long since forgotten, and Bella was snuggled up to my side as I lay on my back. One of her legs was draped across my hips, the heel of her foot sliding up and down the outside of my thigh, and her hand was drawing lazy patterns through the smattering of hair on my chest. We were content and at peace.
"Yes, my love?" I picked her dainty hand up and started nipping at the pads of her fingers, causing her to erupt into girlish giggles, until I sucked one of her tips into my mouth. That earned me a moan that went straight to my semi-hard dick.
"Is this why you coerced Aunt Alice and Uncle Jasper into kidnapping me for the day?" she asked breathlessly.
Teaser # 11 -
"Hello, 106.1 Kiss FM, you are caller number seven. What is your name?"
Shocked into silence, I simply gasped and failed to respond as Jasper exited the kitchen to stand beside Alice, wanting to know what all the commotion was about.
"Hello? This is DJ Em, can I get your name please? Are you there?"
Mr. Johnson reached over and gave me a hard poke in the side with his bony little finger, breaking me out of my stupor. "Umm yeah, sorry, it's Bella. Bella Swan."
DJ Em cackled loudly and then cheerfully informed in a singsong voice, "Well, Bella, Bella Swan, the clue is that the Hottie likes to get freaky almost everyday of the week. You got it?"
"Un-huh," I mumbled, still not believing I had gotten through. Freaky. The Hottie liked getting freaky. Alarm bells were going off loudly in my head. I mumbled my thanks and quickly disconnected the call.
Teaser # 12 -
She nodded absently as her fingers traced his chin and traveled down his neck. She wanted to lick him and trace the same path with her tongue. She shivered and it had nothing to do with the cold.
"Yes, they are fascinating," she admitted as she tugged on the scarf around his neck, revealing more of his flesh. "I get distracted. I'm still getting used to my eyes working the way that they do."
"I know, Tesoro. I was only teasing."
"Hmmm... You know, it's not nice to tease," she scolded as she pushed him onto his back. "I think maybe you should be punished for being so cruel."
Teaser # 13 -
"Is this some kind of joke? Did Angela put you up to this?"
"I'm sorry, Ms. Swan, but I don't know any Angela and this most certainly is not a joke. I realize this must be a surprise, but you won."
