Okay - due to way too much time between cookie batches this morning, it looks like Surviving Bella Chapter 13 will probably be out before the weekend. Here's a sneak peek for you!
“You might as well let go,” I said. My voice was calm, and the back of my mind registered it as Carlisle’s voice of death. In my mind, I wondered if I had ever sounded like this before. “No matter what else happens here, you are going to die. That’s a given.”
“Edward…” Bella’s words were nothing more than a whisper.
“Shh,” I responded. I didn’t look at her. I couldn’t. I was so focused on him I couldn’t even see her in his grasp.
“I’ll kill the bitch,” the motherfucker growled. He was trying to keep his voice steady and tough, but he was failing. His eyes showed it all – he knew he was going to die.
“Take your hands off of her now, and I promise to kill you quick.” I took half of a step towards them, and saw his fingers tighten against her windpipe. “You know you’re already dead. It’s just a matter of how long I make it last.”
“I’ll kill her!”
“How?” I purred at him. “You aren’t holding a weapon. Can you hurt her faster than I can get to you? Are you willing to take the chance? I have all kinds of ways of making you feel pain.”
He moved, but not in the direction I expected.
