Rating: M
Genre: Humor/Romance
Characters: Edward/Bella

Summary: The sexy new hire in Bella's office is a blast from her past, and she's not very happy about it. It's been 8 years; did he honestly think he could walk back into her life and she'd be happy to see him? Fucking absurd. AU/OOC/Canon. Over 18 only please!

“Hold the door, please."

Almost automatically, I pushed the hold button for the elevator even as my mind processed the melodic voice that had spoken the words. A voice I hadn't heard in well over eight years. I froze. It couldn't be.

I lifted my eyes from my Blackberry to look at the face of the man who was equally surprised to see me. 

My phone dropped to the elevator floor with a clatter. "Edward?" And then everything went black.

That is how the new story from VampishVixen starts. This is her first foray into the world of Bella and Edward, and I am glad that she did!

All Fired Up takes place 8 years after Edward leaves Bella in the woods. We learn that Bella’s path though was a little different then it was in the books. She actually dating Jake for awhile before she left for college, but they broke it off when Jake imprinted on one of Sam’s cousins. Charlie ends up married to Sue and learns all of the secrets of the Pack and that the Cullen’s are vampires. Bella goes on to have a “normal” college life, filled with “...dorms, all night study sessions fueled by shitty pizza and Red Bull, parties, bad sex during or after said-parties...” 

She has learned to move on from Edward, has a job she loves in Portland, and a boyfriend, Roger, who is the anchorman of the local news station.

Enter Edward. He has also learned to live without Bella. He has led somewhat of a nomadic lifestyle in the eight years they have been apart. He eventually “succumbed to the advances of Tanya” and tried to make a go of that, but she decided his heart was still caught up in Bella. He eventually decided to attend Yale Law School and break out of his shell. There he, in fact, discovered that he had enough control to have sex with human girls.

So, with a little meddling from Alice, he takes a job at the very company that Bella works for, unbeknownst to him. And let me say that Bella is definitely not happy to see him.

I am really enjoying this Bella, who has become stronger by what he did to her, and is not falling right back into his arms.  She even keys his car for parking in her spot!

Go read this story!  I am looking forward to seeing what there tenuous relationship will bring and the journey that is in store for us!
