Weekly Story Rec.. By DiamondHeart78

Hey everyone, its that time again....Here is a great story Rec by DiamondHeart78.  Hope you all enjoy it and check out this amazing story!


This weeks story is called An Angry Man by katinki

Summary: Edward is a bitter, angry man, a man suffering the sins of his past. An emotional & physical recluse, he pushes everyone away. That is, until Bella, a mysterious woman with her own demons, enters his world and forces him to face himself. AH
Twilight - Rated: M - English - Hurt/Comfort/Romance - Chapters: 24 - Words: 102,421 - Reviews: 2153 - Updated: 11-14-10 - Published: 4-9-10 - Edward & Bella

I stumbled upon this story while reading a post on a fanfiction discussion board a while back and was immediately intrigued by the summary. Told from Edward’s POV, Edward is essentially a damaged, bitter man who is dealing (or not dealing, depending on the reader’s perspective) with a tragedy from his past. The guilt and self-loathing drives him to self-exile: away from the people who are supposed to love and support him.

He pushes everyone aside, drinking his demons away practically every day. However, when his very patient housekeeper must take leave because of a family emergency, Edward is left to tend to a brand new and mysterious tenant, Bella Lovelace, who is renting the small cottage on his expansive property.

At first, they’re abrasive towards each other- they’re both hiding secrets, choosing to keep their distance until Bella opens up and invites him to help her with some home improvements to the cottage. Their precarious relationship continues to evolve as they spend their time getting to know one another. Both Bella and Edward divulge little tidbits of information regarding  their respective pasts, and their budding trust in each other sprouts other, more romantic feelings. Here’s a great clip from Chapter 14 that really sums up the overall conflict in Edward’s mind regarding his self-hatred and his fear of hurting Bella in the process:

"I'm not your friend, Bella," I whispered, shaking my head. "Trust me, you don't want that. I don't want that."

Bella cocked her head to the side, still oblivious to the chaos swirling inside of me. A strand of chestnut hair fell and hugged the curve of her jaw. Her lip quirked and without blinking, she pressed, "Why not?"

"Just, no. I'm not what you'd call friend material," I rasped, gulping again. God, how I wanted a drink, something to bring me back down to earth and rationality. My throat throbbed, recalling the familiar soothing burn.

Her gaze slid up and down my face, roaming, searching for something. I wasn't sure what she saw in my features, but abruptly, a small, pale hand darted out, and before I could react, reached up and smoothed back one of the unruly tufts of hair standing out from the side of my head. Softly, even tenderly, her fingers skimmed down the side of my face, slowing when her fingertips hit the grit of my days-old stubble. My breathing caught, and as much as I wanted to duck and dodge her advance, my body froze beneath her willing touch. Just as it had been before, it was like nothing else, the feel of her touching me, willingly, gently. Where her skin departed, mine felt hot, almost feverish. For a fragile, fleeting moment, my body sighed, relishing the feel of something so different, forgetting everything. That second of contact was so unexpected and so… good, I had to suppress a groan of longing.

"What are you so afraid of?" she whispered, her watchful eyes following the trace of her fingers. Her lips were parted just so and I could only stare stupidly as they moved.

I wanted to shove her away and tell her to leave me the fuck alone. I wanted to wrap my hand around hers and touch her the way she was touching me. I wanted to leave. I wanted to stay. I wanted to understand what the fuck was happening to me. But more than anything else, I wanted to fucking breathe again.

With the latest chapter update in this WIP, Edward still has a lot of issues to deal with, and after Bella’s sister, Alice comes to visit, Edward is given more clues to the mysterious puzzle that is his beautiful neighbor. Even though Edward and Bella have shared a mutual and intimate closeness, they still have not crossed the line that could potentially complicate things even more.

Of course, this being a Hurt/Comfort/Romance fanfiction, sparks are sure to fly, and it’s almost a given that Edward and Bella will, at some point, cross that invisible line into something that could either potentially destroy them, or put them both back together.

I’m really loving this story so far. Edward’s point-of-view is of course rather skewed, so we only get one side to the story, which could cloud the reader’s judgment as to what’s really going on. Remember, Edward’s a broken man, in more ways than one. His perspective on life translates into every facet of his world at the moment. Bella, however, is breaking him out of his funk in a way, but she has so many issues herself, that their journey to reach self forgiveness and redemption will not be without bumps in the road.

I really cannot wait to read more from this really gifted writer. Give it a go, I’m certain you’ll love it too.
