If You Love Something – Chapter 28: The Morning After the Night Before; by Lily Velden
What can I say about waking that first morning with Jere as part of a couple?
It was like being a kid again; lying on your back in the cool grass with the soft hum of nature in your ears and the warmth of the sun on your face. It was like popping a favorite sweet in your mouth, like the sensation of that first spray of hot water on tired muscles. It was like all the things I loved best in the world, all rolled into one. It was wonderful.
Birth Day: Part 2; by Tucker McCallahan:
Despite my having made it hundreds of times before, my journey out of the city terrified me.
It wasn’t just that we cut the time frame so close to the city’s security burn, or even my failure locating any of what I’d been searching for these last few weeks. No, my fear was all about the very perfect and beautiful boy at my side.
He scampered about with no shoes on his feet, dancing over broken glass as if he couldn’t feel it. And perhaps he couldn’t. I checked several times to make sure he wasn’t leaving a trail for anyone to follow, but he wasn’t bleeding.
The Taming – Chapter 7; by M.C. Rayne:
I told myself over and over that I did the right thing, that allowing him to know about my mother was exactly what he needed to know…about me! I had the perfect act, played the perfect part of the bastard people expected me to be, all because I just couldn’t risk letting them get close. I lived through it once and it damn near tore me apart. It threw me into a world that moulded the new me. If I went through it again, I doubt my evolution would be as easy.
Everything I became was easy for me, a walk in the park, as I became the first class student of the night.
The Time Traveler’s Husband – Part 2; by Lily G. Blunt:
January 2nd 1919 (Edward is 17) August 14th 2012 (Jasper is 31)
Edward: Carlisle said the first two years would be the worst. The lust for human blood gradually faded as I grew accustomed to feeding on animal blood. We hunted in the surrounding forests of our family home once or maybe twice a week. I accepted my new life—if you could call it that—my existence. My human family had gone, but Carlisle and Esme treated me as their only son. I was forever seventeen, and indeed, I would probably live forever.
