Breathe Me Chapter 22 Teaser

Wow, just one more chapter after this one. Where did the weeks go? Thank you for all your reviews – each week more and more readers tell me how much they like the story.

Chapter 22 begins with Edward taking care of his Bella:

Edward watched as the sun set on their fifth day as man and wife, the fourth day he had waited for Bella to open her eyes. He had carried Bella to her balcony, and he cradled her limp, sheet-wrapped body in his lap. She was still breathing, and her heart was still beating. Neither had returned to the strength Mick expected, and Edward knew they were preparing for the pyre he made Mick promise to create if anything went wrong. Mick was only waiting now for one last confirmation that Bella was gone forever.

“Love, I know you’re in there,” he whispered, stroking her cool cheek. “You wouldn’t leave me alone. I don’t know what to do, and I wish you could tell me.”

He heard the clamoring thoughts before the opening and closing doors and the footsteps up the stairs. He wasn’t sure why they were bothering to whisper; even if he didn’t have vampire hearing, he’d still know every thought they had in their heads. He continued to look out into the woods, rocking Bella back and forth, until he felt a hand rest on his shoulder.

I’m not including the playlist song in this week’s teaser. I don’t want you to listen to it until after you’ve read the chapter. There will be a link to the song in an author’s note at the end.

Don’t forget, the Moonlight DVD giveaway ends November 29th!

Since you’re not getting a song, the least I can do is give you a video.   How ’bout the Remember Me trailer? Yep, my spoiler-free ways do not extend to this movie at all.
