30 something, mother, wife.  I love to read, cook, bake, and eat.


 


I was at the library in May 2009 when I saw the Twilight book.  It was on the “Fortunate Finds” section which allows a 2 week period.  When I started reading I couldn’t stop.  The following day, I went to Costco and got the whole set.  I finished all four books in 3 days and have read them several times.  I usually read the book again before watching the movie.  I have my own vision of Edward and Bella.


 


I do not write, instead I enjoy reading stories here on Twilighted and Fan Fiction by other authors.

Summary:

When Bella's road takes her from friendship to heartbreak, her world is turned upside down. Her journey to find new meaning in her life brings a new friend with a calming influence. But can she take another chance on turning friendship into something more?

"Each time I see Edward, it seems as though the constant pressure in my chest diminishes a little more. I'm puzzled at the almost instant calm that washes over me when I'm with him. I'm beginning to crave his presence, and that scares me a little bit. I don't want to cling to him like a security blanket. He's so much more than that. I want him to be more than that."

Summary:

Bella and Mike wed four years ago and their marriage hasn't exactly been the picture of bliss. A carefully guarded secret surfaces, destroying an already fragile Bella. Everything she knew was a lie, everything she wanted for her life, wiped out with the click of a mouse. An E x B story.

Warning:
There is mention of past sexual assault, crappy childhoods, an even crappier marriage, and some very prevalent social issues (that I’m not going to mention here, because it would defeat the purpose of reading the story).

Excerpt: I looked at the clock again, 5:44.  Jesus Christ, did time stand still? Those fourteen minutes felt like fourteen hours.  As the moments ticked by, my palms began to sweat and a nervous pressure mounted in my chest. It's not the end of the world Bella; just the end of your marriage...and everything you knew. God, how was I going to do this? People up and left their spouses on a daily basis and never looked back. Of course, how many of them were under these same circumstances, I wondered.  How many women were faced with leaving the man they loved because he'd woven a lie so hurtful? When it finally surfaced, did it kill them?

Fantastic banner by enchanted-mind

 

In her junior year of high school, Bella Swan was days away from moving to Forks, WA.  Fate intervened, and she never made the move.  Now entering her second year at Emerson College in Boston, Bella is passionate, smart . . . and desperately lonely.

Meanwhile, Edward Cullen is empty after years of slogging through the charade of life.  In Alaska following his latest round of high school hell, he spends most of his time avoiding his family and their pitying thoughts.  Seeking a change of pace, he enrolls at MIT and makes his way to the east coast the summer before school begins.  When he catches the scent of his singer on the air, he follows it—and her—to his destiny.

 

This story is nearly finished, and I plan on updating weekly. 

Shelter is rated NC-17 for language, violence, and lemons.  Please don’t read if your momma still checks on you at night.
