I turn the corner and, though I don’t plan to eavesdrop, when I hear Edward talking to Esme, my feet stay rooted in place. “I’m sorry,” he says. “I offered to help with dinner because I wanted to get out of the living room. I’m willing to try, but I should warn you—I’m a complete […]

About the New Chapter…

I began writing Chapter Thirty-One of Fall to Ruin One Day on November 7, 2010. Though details changed during this time, but the main events remained the same.

In that case, you’re right—we are brothers. It’s quite possible we’ve already met. Do you know what […]

“1995 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild.” With one hand under the bottle and the other on its neck, I present the wine for his approval. After a cursory glance at the label, he nods. “Thank you.” I retrieve my knife from my pocket and cut away the foil from the neck of the bottle. Alec hands me the […]

“I guess you’ve met him?” “Who?” “My…” He stops, shaking his head. “I don’t even know how to refer to him. William? Mr. Cullen? Lying motherfucker?” When I snort, he gives me the Look of Death. “Sorry.” Hoping to make this less awkward, I’ve been pounding armagnac. It’s a waste of alcohol—nothing could make this […]

“This would be so much easier if my phone were still working. Then I could just show you.” He takes a step back, folding his arms across his chest. “I swear, if you dragged me all the way out here to show me porn–” I roll my eyes. “If only.” “I don’t have all night–” […]

Dear Carlisle, This feels ridiculous—writing you a letter while you’re here in the apartment. You begged me to talk to you earlier, and though I wanted to, I just couldn’t. Now you’re listening to Automatic for the People. I’ve lived with you long enough to know that means you’re upset, and given the way the […]
