Even In Death Chapter 10

Chapter 10 – Together We’re Invincible
Follow through
Make your dreams come true
Don't give up the fight
You will be alright
'Cause there's no one like you in the universe

Don't be afraid
What your mind conceives
You should make a stand
Stand up for what you believe
And tonight
We can truly say
Together we're invincible
“Invincible” by Muse
EDWARD
A low, rumbling growl emanated from Steve as he stayed perched on my chest. His eyes were dark, his ears back, but his paws gripped my sweatshirt fiercely as we sat around in the Cullen’s living room.
“Easy, buddy,” I whispered to him. When he spun his yellow-green gaze my way, a purr starting up softly. He’d had the shit scared out of him, and since I was the only one in the room he could rely upon, he was clingy.
That last thing bothered Bella a bit, but she understood it. She gazed worriedly at the two of us from across the room, but her eyes were warm, lighter. Even her mood was a bit more controlled since our shower upstairs, and a part of me was proud that I could merely help her in some way. It was hard watching my strong, smart wife second-guess herself over just about every-damn-thing. Before, she would make decisions and never look back, but now she was unsure over her own thought processes. Carlisle said hunting helped her but that I helped her more. I hoped that was true, because as out of my element as I felt, I needed to do something for my Bella. And if touching her, giving her pleasure helped, then I couldn’t exactly complain.

Six - Chapter 25

Chapter 25
New York City
EDWARD
Fuck me, he’s hot.
Calculus homework, Lit homework, Civics homework. Sweet Jesus, I’ll never see the light of day this weekend.
I need coffee. STAT.
He goes away and comes back with a damned girlfriend. Fuckin’ shame.
Snorting at that last thought that wafted my way as I walked toward the NYU cafeteria, I glanced over to the girl who was staring my way. Jessica. I hadn’t seen her since I’d left class in the spring and didn’t come back.
Smirking a little, I shook my head because the “damned girlfriend” was waiting for me in the corner of the large, filled lunchroom, sipping a cup of coffee as she scrolled through her phone.

Even In Death Chapter 9

Chapter 9 – Catastrophe, It Reigns
When you came to me with your bad dreams and your fears
It was easy to see that you'd been crying
Seems like everywhere you turn catastrophe it reigns
But who really profits from the dying
I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you forever
I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you in my arms forever
“Hold You In My Arms” by Ray Lamontagne

My eyes were on my house as Carlisle backed out of my driveway. I wasn’t sure I needed to be driven into work. I’d been going in on my own without any problems, and that was prior to knowing I was being followed by good and bad vampires.
Snorting softly to myself, I let out a sigh when I caught one last glimpse of my wife in the front window, and then she vanished.
“I won’t be your taxi every day,” Carlisle stated, seemingly reading my mind, but he smirked at my soft laugh. “Bella kind of thought we could talk privately in the car.”
