Thanx to the beautiful Anne Cullen for the banner!


Picking up from Edward's leave in New Moon, Bella never rescued Edward, Edward never came back, but somebody did ... 

 This story is set five years after that sad day Edward left Bella in the woods.

For years Bella searches for Edward, eager to tell him her new found secret.  As Bella gives in to her fears, that Edward really is gone, she runs into her past in the least likely place.  Only to find out, her past has a secret to tell as well.


"The smell of the worn book had distracted me from the wonderful aroma that had engulfed the room.  It had subdued my venom, had forced me back into a human-like state, my inner monster slowly crawling back into his darkened hole.  I swallowed one last time, and decided to glance at this glorious teacher.  Obviously he was a man of impeccable taste.  I might actually enjoy Senior Literature this year.  

I glanced up quickly from under my eyelids, my amber eyes focusing on a lanky form in front of me.  I froze.  

… Oh shit. "

I really did enjoy reading your story.  I'm rather new at this, so I was wondering how soon you would be posting an update.  You have an awesome talent and I love the twists you incorporate within the story.  Looking forward to more of your work.

Used to feeling lonely in a crowded room, international film star Edward Cullen meets a certain journalist that captures his attention.  Soon afterwards, she's gone ... or so he thinks.

Love it! Love it! Love it! Need more cupcakes!!!!

Summary: Feature


Bella had the perfect life.  She was married to her longtime best friend, had a great job and a beautiful son…until a careless driver stole her happiness.

Edward was fulfilling his dreams.  His residency was almost over, he had a gorgeous fiancé, and he was ready to move forward, starting a family…until a devastating break-up and a health scare in his family shake his foundation.

See, sometimes, life doesn’t go the way you want.  Sometimes, things can happen that change the course you choose.  And most of the time, it takes courage to walk down the new path.

What if that new path started with a tee ball team?


Big thanks to sigh-for-sigh for the banner!!


Play with me on the forum.  I now have a thread in the Alternate Human thread.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful talent with us.  We will be looking forward to your next project.  Have a nice sabbatical.

Author's Response:

Thanks for your review!



The summer before her junior year in college, Bella moves to be closer to her father. All the while adding some much needed space from her crazed frat-boy ex-boyfriend. Being there for her father comes with the fresh start she needs. (One without men to complicate it) Until, one evening after her shift the most gorgeous man she has ever laid eyes on...comes to her aid. He causes Bella to almost forget the vow she's taken against the opposite sex. Almost. That is until the realization that he's a frat boy and she's never going there again. No matter how those intense green eyes make her feel.

What will happen when Bella transfers to the University of Washington and meets a handsome coed, Edward? Will she find peace from her past or be stuck playing the part?

When Bella and Edward meet the first day of High School, he is a chubby misfit with no friends in a new town, aside from his popular cousins.  He meets Bella Swan, a well-liked, if uncoordinated, local with problems of her own.  This is the story of their friendship, their loss, their love and destruction.  Can they find their way back to each other?  And can they survive the changes they have both gone through since the fateful day they met?
