Outfits for Public Relations Ch 8: Disclosure


I continued to stroke him, only stopping so he could lift my t-shirt over my head and toss it across the room somewhere. He reached behind me then, causing me to lean back slightly. I could feel him fumbling around on the table and when he pulled back, sitting upright, I saw the glint of a knife out of the corner of my eye.
I looked at his face and then the knife. His cheeks were flushed, but his gaze was lusty.


"May I?" he asked, the knife poised at the thin strap of my cost-too-much bikini panties.


I nodded in earnest. Fuck the cost! If he got them off, we could more easily get each other off. And fuck! Edward asking to cut my panties was hot.


He flicked his wrist and the band snapped, then he did the same with the right side and pulled them off. I was so busy thinking about the thudding in my chest that I didn't see when Edward's hand dipped in between my thighs, causing me to gasp when his fingers began to trace circles around my clit.

I traced my fingers across his back. Marveling as the muscles twitched and jumped at my touch. He stirred slightly and I knew he was starting to wake up. With featherlight touches, I wrote Bella loves Edward on his back. Like something I would have done in middle school. Complete with a heart in between our names, pierced by a rugged arrow. That's how he made me feel. Giddy like an eighth grader whose head and heart swam with new feelings of love.

"Good morning, beautiful," Edward spoke, his voice thick with sleep. I smiled as my eyes met his, drawing me away from the image I mentally drew on his back.

Fuck! He was so damn sexy. Even sexier still because he had no idea. Not a clue.

It was more than fleeting infatuation though. I knew it with every ounce of who I was that I loved him and only him. I was convinced that we were two souls split apart at some infinite point in time who just came back together. We just fit that way, seamlessly. I'd dare someone to argue with me.

"Hey," I smiled back.

Heirloom Grilled Cheese Sandwich & Tomato Soup



In Chapter 17 of Fate & Forgotten Secrets, the heirloom grilled cheese is mentioned when Bella joins Edward for lunch at Eclipse.


"Well, have you eaten?"

"I had coffee and an apple."

Edward chuckles, "As much as I fucking love coffee, Bella, that is not food. Come on, I was just about to make something to eat. You can join me."

I sit there for a second and stare at him. What? "You cook?"

"Don't act so surprised, Bella. I'll just run upstairs and drop the suit in Jazz's office."

Edward walks off quickly and sprints upstairs, leaving me to my thoughts about him cooking. I bet we're going to have grilled cheese or something. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Grilled cheese was one of my favorite things to eat as a child and I have a fantastic recipe for an Heirloom Grilled Cheese Sandwich. But Edward's a guy and for a guy, a grilled cheese is standard food.

Ingredients

Grilled Cheese Sandwich:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened (eek! I know. So much fat, but it tastes so good!)
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, plus 4 tablespoons
  • 8 slices thick bread bread. Ciabatta bread is a good pick. 
  • 8 ounces white Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 heirloom tomato, sliced into 3 (1/8-inch) slices
  • 8 strips thick sliced apple wood smoked bacon, pan fried. Not soggy, but not blackened to a crisp.

Tomato Soup:

  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin basil olive oil (or just buy olive oil and infuse it with basil 3 to 24 hours prior to cooking with it).
  • 3 tablespoons finely diced shallots
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped basil leaves
  • 3 strips thick sliced apple wood smoked bacon, fried and diced
  • 3 ounce tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Salt
  • Sugar, to taste (this is especially helpful if you suffer from acid induced heartburn.)
  • 1 tablespoon basil for garnish. 

Directions

Grilled Cheese Sandwich: In a small mixing bowl, combine butter, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard. Spread a liberal amount of butter mixture on 2 slices of bread. Flip over slices and spread some Dijon mustard on other sides. Place Cheddar cheese on the Dijon side of both slices. Place bacon on top of cheese on 1 slice and sliced tomatoes on top of cheese on other slice. Combine both sides together and place in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook until golden brown and crusty. Flip sandwich and place a weighted cast iron pan on top (it needs to melt together). Cook until golden brown and cheese has melted. Remove from skillet and serve immediately with tomato soup.

Tomato Soup: Puree the crushed tomatoes in a food processor and set aside. In a heavy stainless steel pot, heat basil olive oil. Add shallots and cook until soft. Add garlic, thyme, chopped basil, bacon, and tomato paste and continue to cook, stirring with a wooden spoon. Add tomato puree, cream, chicken broth, and salt and sugar, to taste. Bring to a simmer. Pour soup into bowls and garnish with chiffonnade basil. Serve immediately with grilled cheese sandwich.

"Sir, this is the tried and true method for making meatballs."

"Excuse the fuck out of me. According to whom? No
real Italian chef would be caught dead putting breadcrumbs in their meatballs. Hell, no self-respecting lover of Italian food would do it either!"

"Well, sir, you can choose not to use breadcrumbs if you want. However, those are the instructions for the class."

I just glare at his fat bald head as he walks away.
Cazzo di cuoco. I turn to look at Bella and she's giggling behind her hand.

Outfits for Fate & Forgotten Secrets, Chapter 36: Beneath the Surface

I watch her as she moves, noting how fucking sexy she looks in her tall boots and pink skirt that rests smoothly against her. For a second, I imagine what it would feel like to have those boots wrapped around my waist or resting on my shoulders. I wonder if her skirt is too tight to push up around her waist or how to get at her nipples with the constricting top she has on. I could always just take it off. ~ Edward Cullen, Fate & Forgotten Secrets Chapter 36: Beneath the Surface

But I knew it was locked and she wasn't waiting for me to come back; she sent me away. I was so lost in my thoughts and not paying attention to my surroundings, so I didn't see Alice when she appeared on the porch until her tiny shadow flickered across the glowing porch light.


I looked up and caught her eye, she gave me a small smile and a wave. I waved back, but didn't return the smile; it just seemed fucking wrong. I just shook my head, put my car in gear and drove. 


I drove to the lake where I had taken Bella ice skating and parked on the outskirts and then walked the rest of the way. It was kind of a windy night, but the dense trees helped to cut the bite of the wind. The edges of the lake were thawed out and the ground was a little squishy, despite how fucking cold it was. 


I stared at the lake, at the darkness. There was nothing but a vast pool of nothing in front of me. No light, no beauty, even the significance of this place meant nothing without her. 


I felt crazy. Utterly fucking insane. 


I picked up some rocks and started hurling them at the ice covered lake. Intermittently running my hands through my hair, my roots were starting to fucking kill from all the goddamn tugging I had been doing that night. I was furious and confused and just a fucking mess.


I stopped tossing rocks and my phone rang. I knew who it was and I didn't want to talk to her, but I also knew if I didn't answer, she would just keep calling or worse. She'd hop her ass on a plane and come and string me up by my balls.

Outfits for Public Relations Ch 7: The Unveiling

My entire focus was on her. She looked ethereal in a royal blue dress that made her skin glow like an angel. She stepped down the two steps at the entrance, leading to the dining area and craned her neck to look around. I couldn't help the larger than life smile I felt spread across my face when we made eye contact and her mega watt smile was on display, just for me. ~ Edward Cullen, Public Relations, Chapter 7: The Unveiling

"Bella, what?"


"Shhh," she cut me off and placed kisses all over my skin, including my exposed neck, solidifying my choice to not wear a tie.


Her kissing only spurred me on and I started to run my hands all over her. Just to touch her and feel her. I could tell something was bugging her, but she wanted this and in truth, so did I. I chose to let go of my mind as much as I could and just feel.


Her small hands had pushed my suit jacket off and were now alternating between clutching at the back of my shirt or finding purchase in my hair. The way she was clawing at me was like she was trying to get as close as possible, but couldn't get close enough.


My hands came across the hem of her dress and she hitched one leg over mine as I gently moved up her thigh. She sighed into my mouth and flinched as I traced her delicate skin.

Once Upon A Time....

I met this really, really awesome girl named Julieblys. Julieblys is obsessed with bannerage. On a chilly Spring day she sat at her computer and was inspired to make me smile. The result was this....


(Direct Link: http://i905.photobucket.com/albums/ac254/snshynne/Fate%20and%20Forgotten%20Secrets/FateandForgottenSecrets.jpg)

I know, I know. It's Public Relations week and I owe you all some teasers. But this banner is so epically fuckawesome! It cannot go unrecognized!


From the maker: In case you are wondering about the inspiration, it's from a dream sequence bella has right after Mike has raped her that begins with a storm brewing over a field of whild flowers..  Bella shouting No, please!  and then edward waking her up from simular nightmares much later in the story with his dreamy italian of "Wake up and look at me"


Here is the passage she is referring to: "...Flowers. Daisies. Peonies. Tulips. Daffodils. Flowers. I kneel down and sniff each flower lovingly. The clouds come in and cause the flowers to retreat and close their petals. "No please," a female screams in the distance. Thunder begins to clap in the sky. The sky is angry and taking out it's vengeance on the flowers. Lightning strikes the sky in two fierce cracks. I run and hide behind a nearby tree, covering my eyes and crouching down to hide from an angry sky. As time passes, I can feel the anger lift. As I peer around the tree, the ground is decimated. The flowers are gone. Everything is dead..." ~ Bella Swan,  Fate & Forgotten Secrets, Ch 9: Betrayal


I love it! What do you think?

Outfits for Fate & Forgotten Secrets, Ch 35: The Power of Words

We head upstairs to my bed; Edward strips down to his boxer briefs, and I slip off my hoodie and my yogies, leaving me in a tank and boy shorts. He crawls into bed and I slide in, curling into his side and resting my head on his chest. ~ Bella Swan, Fate & Forgotten Secrets, Chapter 35: The Power of Words











Fate & Forgotten Secrets Chapter 35 TextTease

However, just because it was heightened, doesn't mean the underlying issue isn't there. Can you imagine sleeping next to a modern day equivalent  of a Greek god almost every night and not wanting to have sex with him? I dare you to try.

The need is more prevalent for me because I love him and I want that with him. What I feel for Edward is magnified a million times more than what I ever felt for Mike. I need Edward to fully replace him.
So, yes, we have been intimate in other ways. His talented fingers and skilled tongue are wonderful, but I want more. I want all of him. I don't want pieces anymore. Between that and his irritability, it makes me wonder if maybe Rosalie was wrong. Maybe he doesn't love me and he never will. 

I can't figure it out. One minute, I think he has my best interest at heart and the next, he confuses me with his refusals.

He told me he would stay until I sent him away. I did just that and now he's gone.

Between us, the skirt of my dress was hiked up, the only thin barriers between us were my panties and the cloth of his slacks. It took every ounce of control I had to not undo his zipper, push my thong aside and mount him right there. ~ Bella Swan, Public Relations Chapter 6: Change in Terms






Public Relations Ch 6 TextTease


The rest of the day crawled along, but the nagging sensation of counting down the hours and minutes until I would be able to look into those beautiful bottle green eyes again never waned. 
 
Meeting after meeting, proposal after proposal, the day finally came to an end and it was time for me to head to Le Gourmand to meet Edward. 
 
I was nervous. He readily accepted my request for dinner, but I didn't really know what that meant. Maybe he wanted to break it off with me? Break what off I wasn't sure because we never talked about it. Because I never meant to let this happen.
 
Maybe he would stand me up? If he did, I wouldn't blame him. I deserved it after the way I behaved, but that didn't quell the dull ache at the thought of him actually doing it.
 
When I arrived at Le Gourmand, Edward was already there seated at the bar and staring at the door. He wore a small smile when he saw me, and I watched as he basically threw back the rest of his drink as I walked over to him.
