CBWR? Chapter 42 seems a lot of you are a vengeful group, huh? Lots of kudos for Bella and her electrocution execution. And now, on with the show!

Let's see if FFN is behaving today, shall we?

As soon as I said it, I wanted to take it back.

Chapter 42

I jumped back, pulling Bella with me as James began thrashing and jerking around in the water.

"Holy shit," I mumbled as all of his muscles went taut.

Alice took the shivering girl up the stairs as Bella started rummaging through all the papers scattered on the floor. I contacted Rose, and told her we were ready for the cleaners to head over our way and clean up our mess, asking her to warn them about the potential electrical hazard to avoid in the basement. Once I was done talking to Rosalie, I turned back to Bella. She was still flipping through the papers and mumbling to herself.

"There's nothing here," Bella said. At first her voice was quiet, but quickly rose in both volume and intensity. "There's nothing here! Not her name, or anyone who fits her description - nothing!"

Not that it was any great shock, but I had no idea what to say. Bella was becoming more hysterical by the second, and I had no idea what to do about it. So, I said the first thing that came to my mind, which is probably never the correct course of action.

"Maybe that's a good thing."

As soon as I said it, I wanted to take it back.

"A good thing?" Bella said, and then she screamed at me. "A good thing? How in the fuck could this possibly be a good thing, you self-centered son of a bitch!"

Without much more warning, she rushed forward and slammed her palms into my chest, shoving me backwards.

"She might be dead! I might never see her again and it's all because you wanted someone to fuck on command, you sick bastard! It's your fucking fault! I hate you! I hate you!"

She kept pounding my chest with every word, and I let her. The impact of her fists had little effect on my body, but e very word she hurtled towards me was like a bullet straight into my heart.

"I'm sorry," I tried to say, which was just another asinine phrase from my useless mouth.

"Sorry? You're sorry? What difference do you think that makes to me now, huh? Why don't you say it a few more times and see if that makes my mom magically appear."

Bella continued to pummel me for a while, and then suddenly stopped and looked up at me. As I watched the pain, frustration, anger, and God knows what else pass over her face, all I could do was stare at her. I didn't have any magic words for her, or even any unimaginative, useless words, either. All I could do was watch as tears suddenly welled up and spilled from her eyes, and Bella's arms reached up around my neck, and she held herself to me as she cried for her mother.

I guess I should have expected this, right?

Chapter End Notes:

Awww...poor E - he has no idea how to cope with this.

It was about time for that poor girl to have a serious breakdown, I think.

Renee is still unaccounted for...who's left to talk?


  1. First off, thank you so much for posting your story. I didn't get to read this chapter over at ffn. So here I am now catching up.

    I dont know what I was expecting from Bella but that wasn't it. I'm glad she said those things though. He deserved every word she gave him.


  2. break down was expected. she was handling things a little too well.

  3.  Dats rite Bells.......i was waitin 4 u to do dat!!!!! u were lettin #DoucheWard up a little too much. Its always gud 2 really say wats on ur mind!!!!!!!!!!!

    as for #DoucheWard............I love ya but u f@#^ked up mayneeeeeee BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!!! now where da hell does this go nw?!?

  4. Bella is allowed to vent right now and just Edward deserved every minute of it and more.

  5. Proud of Bella. Edward doesn't think as usual.  

  6. Oh God, I feel so horrible for Bella and Edward at this point. 

  7.  Maybe he's pawned her off somewhere else?? UGH


  8. He just stood there and took it from her. Yeah E. Progress just to not have some crap try to pour out his mouth. What would have happened if he tried (and failed) to comfort her? She still has the Beretta right?

  9. Emotions are running high. So no Renee...good or bad? Hmmm.

  10. Disqus wasn't working last chapter... Must say that was a better ending to james's life then I'd imagined!

    Poor Bella, I hope she finds her mama

  11. I hate to think what they did with women above the 'desirable' age. Not good enough for sex slaves, too troublesome for house-slaves? They must be harder to train aftr a lifetime of normalcy.
