I snuck downstairs to see what the kids were doing. I heard them before I even walked into the room.
They were all laughing while the movie played. Sonny was sitting in a chair, holding Katie's hand as they whispered, these huge smirks on their faces.
I held my heart and stared, but Dame caught me.
"Dinner ready, Mommy?" He jumped in front of me.
I held his cheek. "Almost."
"We weren't doing anything," Sonny said.
I widened my eyes. "Never said you were . . . you sound guilty, though."
He tried and failed miserably at not smiling back at me.
"Just tell her, or better yet have Edward do it," Rosalie urged. "He has that—no nonsense way of speaking. She'll comply out of fear."
The coward I am did consider it.
"Eddie is so not scary anymore," Alice laughed.
"Wanna make a bet?" Rose fanned her face, the wine making her flushed. "He keeps all his guys in line. Renee'll shake in her boots."
"No. You did—you did it all! You cheated on your husband, and I had to suffer for it! Instead of owning what you did, instead of being a woman, you cowered—you had him punish me for your mistakes!" I ranted.
"Mom, come on." Emmett tried to usher her away.
"You had to stick your nose in where it didn't belong!" She kept going, getting closer, and I blocked her from my husband, pushing her hand and that finger away from him.
"Get your finger out of his face!" I shouted. "You don't get to talk to him like that, you hear me?"
"Bella." Edward stepped forward, placing me behind himself. It seemed we both wanted to defend each other. "Renee, I think you need to take that walk. We all need to relax. Derek—"
"Don't tell me what to do. You're not the boss of me!" And she pushed Edward, planted her hands on his chest and just pushed. My husband didn't move. He stood there like a wall, making sure I couldn't get to her.
"I just want to talk to her. Emmett will be there, Derek too."
Edward looked around us. "What can't you say in front of me?"
"Nothing—God." I was exasperated again. "Come if you want." I'd hated to admit that I only wanted to go out there so that I could maybe smack her mouth, hurt her in some way, and Edward would never let me.
"Carlisle forged some paperwork . . . DJ is the newest witness against Luke."
"What?" I was confused.
"C got it from one of his Fed buddies—some fuck on the take." Edward looked around us. "He's in WitSec."
"Witness protection." I had a short chuckle. "That's original. Why not just say he ran off with some chick?"
"Because . . . a man like Derek needs evidence. Carlisle fudged the 302 report, placing all of DJ's info on it. It worked. He sure as hell won't be bothering Luke anymore, nor would Derek bring it to his attention." Edward rushed out, his lips touching my ear.
"What about his brother?"
Edward leaned away. "I said I couldn't help him with that one, that I didn't know, but that he should leave it alone. Trust me; he understood. He's also grateful I won't give Luke the info about DJ."
"Is he . . . okay?" I shrugged, keeping an eye on Lauren.
He rolled his eyes. "Do you really care?"
I didn't reply to that.
"He'll rest easier believing his son isn't dead—that his son is doing the right thing. Regardless of anything, in Derek's eyes, DJ got himself out of trouble—out of debt and out of New Jersey. He didn't appreciate being practically strip-searched in my office, but . . . I had to make sure he wasn't wired for sound. Understand?"
I nodded. "I do . . . you did what you had to, what you knew would work." I grasped his hand to place a kiss on his knuckles, while I willed what was left of my frustration to leave.
"Get outta the car," Edward shouted, pulling away from me. "Lemme do it!"
"I got it!" Lauren hollered back, her tire hitting the curb.
"You get one more try, Mallory." My husband held up a finger, smirking.
Lauren giggled, making eyes, like they were flirting or some shit.
That bothered me, but…
My mind just kept wandering back to my mother, and I needed an outlet. I needed another glass of wine, some laughs, to go back in and spend time with my loved ones.
When that dumbass finally parked her car, I felt a bit easier.
"You look good—"
She was still talking to him, and she said the wrong thing at the wrong time. It was just too much.
In hindsight, what she said truly wasn't bad, but that bitch had it coming.
All those years I had to watch her flirt with my husband, compliment him . . .
All those years she'd sworn she'd kick my ass . . .
Fried calamari flew everywhere after I punched her in the jaw. She grabbed ahold of my hair, and I tackled her to the ground in our foyer.
"Bitch!" She slapped at my face.
"Skank!" I punched her once more, and then reached for her neck to squeeze. "Fucking whore—look at him again! I fucking dare you!"
"Holy fuck!" I heard Edward shout, and then I was lifted off of her.
"Schifosa!" I gave her an Italian salute, moving my hand below my chin.
"What has gotten into you?" Edward squeezed my arm so hard.
"Oww." I panted, and, needless to say, that really calmed me.
Once again, I had an audience for my atrocious behavior. Aro was helping Lauren off the floor, and it looked like everyone else didn't know what to make of it.
Lauren was crying…
"I thought you could beat my ass?" I widened my arms, welcoming her.
"Cut it out," Edward spat.
I folded my arms across my chest and shut my mouth.
"She all right?" he asked Aro.
Aro was trying not to laugh. "Yeah, she'll live."
"You're crazy!" Lauren shouted at me.
"So, what?" I just couldn't give a fuck anymore; however, I was very happy no children were around to see that.
"That was wicked." Jasper gave me a high-five and so did his wife.
"Bitch had it coming," Alice commented.
I nodded, agreeing with her.
"We're coming to Sunday dinners more often," Jasper laughed.

Well, that was one hell of a Sunday Dinner!!! Poor Bella, her emotions really took a hit. Her confrontation was a long time coming with Renee and even with Lauren tho perhaps that could have happened another time!! ;-)

This day started out so great and then my FN air goes out and it is hotter then hell up in here and now you tell me there is only maybe 10 chaps left of this story! I may need a drink after all this LOL! I love it when Bella gets a crazy and hits a bitch! Sad we didnt see it more! Great chapter!
Date: 20 Jun 2012 11:13 PM Title: Well Enough
That last part was funny as HELL!!! I have been waiting on Bella to snap and finally slap Lauren. I would've beat the sh*t out of her the first time she flirted with my husband, but at least she finally let her have it lol.
Date: 20 Jun 2012 10:39 PM Title: Well Enough
About time Bella let Lauren have it. To many women disrespecting Bella in her own home. So what exactly is her moms problem with Bella? Does she resent her for being Derecks or the result of something she did?
Love the story! Will definitely miss it when it is gone. I look forward to the updates. I flip between here and FF.

I have been glued to these stories and am so sad they are about to end.
The characters are really interesting and the plot held my attention all the way through.
Carlisle doesn't have a good track record with women, unless he changes drastically.

LMAOOOOO Finally!!!! Lauren got her ass beat hahahahaha!! I really wish Renee would've gotten slapped but Bella did the right thing, Alex still annoys me lol I think it's mostly because I see it the same way Edward does, she's immature and ALWAYS around, I laughed when Rose dissed her lol that was funny!!! I'[m sad that it's ending soon but it's been a good ride!! All good things must come to an end I guess!!

LMFAO...your talent is enless I swear. I'm so happy we got a lil
Alice time because she cracks me up!!!
Thank Fucking God you finally had Bella beat Lauren down....that bitch did have it coming.

*fist pump for the dirty #*
That was an awesome rumble. I'm so glad Bella put the smack down on Lauren or should I say, 'the Skank, F'ing whore.' haha, hilarious.
Im so glad. She finally spoke up to Renee abo t all her feelings.
I don't want this to end:-(

Woo-fu+king-hoo!!!! Is it werid that I am so proud of Bella?? First her Mom the that skank hoe Lauren!! You go Bella!!! Damn Girl!! Even Edward liked it!!! Aro laughed!! Woot woot!! ( yeah I am still cheering!). So looking forward to the next chapter!

I going to miss the shenanigans of this crew, they always crack me up. Lauren had it coming for a long time, knock the bitch out (LOL) that shit was hilarious. Bella gave Renee what she deserve, she was never a mom and it was about time she got her out of her life once and for all. Aaw! I'm getting emotional with the pending ending (Waaaa!), but all good things must come to an end. Thanks for sharing this story with us, it has been a blast. Update soon, much love.

whack-a-bitch, ***I'm so stealing that phrase fro Kim over at "Oh Captain, My Captain" *** Lauren, you should know better than to mess with Bella's man!!!! Oh, Jasper you are so very precious my darling man... Alice and Rose kinda got Bella reved up over Lauren before she ever got there though, in all fairness to Lauren....There is never a dull moment at Casa de Cullen is there?!?
oh, Renee you are one lucky Momma, that your girl didn't put a A$% pounding on you.... Gonna chalk up Alex's behavior to pregnancy hormones, she's just all over the place with what she thinks she wants.... awh, poor dear!!! Mercy Mr Percy what a day and they haven't even eaten yet.... hope everyone's hungry by now, we all know Bella worked up a appetite by now... **evil smirks** Laters Lexi babe!!! OMG what a awesome job you did in providing mob info for Grand Tale.... looking forward to Grand Vandetta too!!!!

what a Party. We all have nutty families but I am so glad I don't have a Renee. Lauren flirting with my husband I would deck her too.
You know you have a life... US I count you as one of the best writers in FFion. I think the number is under 20.
We all understand, we have our families. As in kids and husbands.
Date: 20 Jun 2012 6:47 PM Title: Well Enough
What a family! I love this story and will be sad to see it end. Love that Bella finally unloaded on Lauren. I mean, what does Edward always do when he thinks someone is flirting with Bella? Turnabout is fair plan and Lauren has had that coming for a while now. I also love how hot it makes Edward to see Bella get violent! Straight to the bathroom and hard as a rock! Oh mama....
Date: 20 Jun 2012 6:29 PM Title: Well Enough
I fucking love these guys! Every last fucked up one of them! I don't want this to ever, ever, EVER end!!
I love that you are going to jump ahead and give us POV's of everyone to let us know how they are doing and think it is a fantastic way to end it!
This chapter was magnificent! Soo good!
Great job! Thanks for all of your hard work that you have put into this story & Quiet Storm and sharing it all with us! I have enjoyed it immensely!
Date: 20 Jun 2012 6:08 PM Title: Well Enough
Yeah!!!! Finally beat the bitch down!!! She totally had it coming. Too mad more couldn't be done with Renee but she can be a loose end that just kind frays at the end. Although I love e &b pov's, your ther characters always come to life anyway. So when you get to the other folks... Theyll defiantly be awesome. Truly love this fic!!! Can't believe it's almost over, bu glad there's still a shytload left.
Date: 20 Jun 2012 1:44 PM Title: Day-to-Day
hey awesome as always! Quick question I'm pretty sure you might have said it before, but I'd like to be sure will there be a third installment of the series or not? Please says yes! I love your stories they aré absolutely awesome and if there isn't a third, at least I'll continue to read anything you write
Date: 20 Jun 2012 12:21 AM Title: NuMb
i get why carl let es leave but is that really a wise choice? guess we will find out as the story goes on...
carl got a little freaky scarey there for a while interesting to see. but i guess even if he is the quiet level headed one he is still a badass mobster...
Date: 19 Jun 2012 11:21 PM Title: Day-to-Day
It's been a while since they had sex like that. I missed it...SSDD for Edward what with Jersey and the Albanians....guess that shit never ends. Love the stuff with Sonny and Damion.....guess we're nearly finished here?
Date: 19 Jun 2012 11:17 PM Title: Breaking Dawn
wow ed really lost it there for a while. everyone was freaked out, but bella brought him back. i wonder what the morning after is gonna be like? will aro talk to mc? will ed pitch a fit? does carl really have to get es out of ny? so much shit!
Date: 19 Jun 2012 10:49 PM Title: Logic
I like this chapter much better. Was the Skip too lenient with Lou? Maybe, but if Lou keeps on being like that, he won't live long....Love the family stuff....sorry to see this story end, but then maybe you can move onto finishing other stories, huh?
Date: 19 Jun 2012 10:18 PM Title: Days Like This
Are they really OK? It seems with every fight, every arguement, they get a little further apart. Say it isn't so. Please tell me it's my imagination, my stuff. I love this story so much. It contains real emotions, real feelings. I feel it in my gut. You say to trust you. I'm trying....
Date: 19 Jun 2012 9:33 PM Title: Riders of the Storm Part Two
I'm glad she didn't kill him. It may have changed her for the worse. Edward is sending her away, sending her and Sonny away. You keep saying to trust you.....this shit is bad! How will you get them out of this one?
Date: 19 Jun 2012 8:03 PM Title: Aro's Daycare
sonny and katie are too cute, ed and aro are gonna have their hands full with that.
aro's date was cute and awkward, but no where near as awkward as the morning after will be if he stays. or if anything comes about with aro and gina... LOL
Date: 19 Jun 2012 4:21 AM Title: Eclipse
I read quiet storm and know how intense these two can get...he did punch walls by her head....hes just never took it so far as to force himself onher nor hit her physically, though he did force her to pick up that book and aro gave him hell for that, like the last chapter, and bella gonna shoot him at eclipse was wrong too i love how they are intense and lose their minds sometimes and im not in any means want you to think im being hurtful, its just in my opinion edward did go to far last chapter.....loved this chapter and your story
Date: 19 Jun 2012 12:55 AM Title: A Tight Fit
still loving the story keep up the great work!
to all of the haters.... if you have so many issues with the story why in the hell are you still reading it? 19 chapters in, you should know ifyou want to keep reading... just sayin... find something more more to your style and stop hating on our poor ms sexy!
ms lexy - i have been away from my ffn for months and who did i stop in to read first .... YOU! love the story thank you for sharing it with me :)
Date: 18 Jun 2012 11:08 PM Title: Eclipse
yay aro's back! can't even believe he made a play for mc after he remembered everything... well i can and i love aro and wanted him and bella to hook up back in the original, but alas a hot hookup on the side is not gonna happen... i know.
nice to see everyone getting their shit together. the ed, bella, and aro thing may take a little while to get back though and it will never be the same....
Date: 18 Jun 2012 8:39 PM Title: Craft of the Father
black guys in the drive-by car, huh? are they thinking it was Laurent? Lloyd is a dead man walking, I think. Mauro? he needs to go, but isn't a made man protected? This chapter scared me. Thank God Sunny will be OK.
Date: 18 Jun 2012 7:52 PM Title: End of the Day
Is there a coup coming on? I don't think you'll kill off Edward, but Carlisle or Aro might not be safe.....I truly do love their family life. Sonny will be trouble. After I finish this, I am going to read QS again. I just rec'd it to a friend and she loves it! Is it available for download yet? I would love to own my very own copy....
Date: 18 Jun 2012 6:44 PM Title: Bitter Fruit Part One
badass bella popped one for her man! how sweet in a mob-y kinda way.
going down hill! es wants to baby nap poor ant. heehee bella showed the bitch she needs to step off! awesome!
aro is awake but not aro. the fuck!?!?! and ed is talking about 'retirement' ?! THE FUCK!?! again i say... aro better be ok....
Date: 18 Jun 2012 2:23 AM Title: Thanksgiving
I always remember you say no cheating and a HEA. That's one of the reasons that I like your stories so much. That and the epic literery qualities to each of them that I have read. So no, I never thought Edward was interested in Alex. I do believe he is jealous of the time she spends with Bella....and really hope Carlisle can be redeemed by true love. Bella meeting her birth father is a real deal too...I understand that she's not used to having parents who care but maybe that will change. and, lastly, if Aro can't have his MC, then maybe he can have her look-alike half sister....oh and Sonny's boner was just too cute!!
Date: 17 Jun 2012 2:50 PM Title: That Thing You Do
Sonny and Katie are the cutest thing ever! She wants to touch his penis and he wants to see her little rosebuds.....I love all this family stuff. Sonny's POV was very entertaining. He's 12 goin on 17...knows how to play the adults already but still such a little boy. I am in love with your writing!
Date: 17 Jun 2012 1:37 PM Title: The Cupid Shuffle Part Two
Alex and Carlisle...has the leopard changed his spots? They both seem besotted so maybe it will work. I like Alex. Bella puking on the bathroom floor and Aro slipping and landing in it.....2 of my favorite thing in this chapter! Mauro better watch himself or he will end up clipped....Lexi I love these Storm tales of yours. Did I say that I loved them more that EP? That's saying something cuz I loved EP. Is a pdf of QS available for download yet?
Date: 16 Jun 2012 3:48 PM Title: Trick or Treat Part Two
I love this chapter! It tugs at my heart strings. For Bella to gain a loving father at this time of her life is just a godsend! And Aro wanting to date her sister! That's going to be both strange and fun, I think. Thanks!
Date: 16 Jun 2012 3:07 PM Title: Trick or Treat Part One
What happened at the sitdown with Ronnie? Is that in the next chapter? I wonder if Carlisle is really fallling this time. He never loved Esme or Anthony's mother really, so maybe there's a first time for him at almost 40....I never cease to love E and B's sex scenes! From the first chapter of QS they have always been so hot! Love this epic story! Will there be a part 3 after you finish this one? Any chance of you getting QS published or will you have to give up too much to do so? I was VERY disappointed with the published version of EP. I don't want that to happen to you, but you deserve money for your work, should you ever decide to go for that.
Date: 16 Jun 2012 2:38 PM Title: Members Only
Will we ever know if Esme killed herself? Does it matter? I'm sorry to see Nanny go. I liked her feisty self! Will Bella ever seek out her birth father? Geez I'm full of questions today. I hate to see her estranged from Emmett but don't blame her. That's a helluva secret to keep for 11 years!
Date: 16 Jun 2012 8:19 AM Title: Day-to-Day
Cs getting married. Aro needs a woman. Sonny isn't jealous any longer he's such a sweet boy. My baby also runs hot like Kylie. Love this story as well as the Quiet storm. Love your writing style. Your verbose without being boring. Chapter updates are always great.
Date: 14 Jun 2012 8:01 PM Title: Beach Blanket Bingo Part Two
no chapter 38? well I guess that was then, so there probably is one now. I love the stuff at the beach. there seems to be no way to get all the way away from the business though, is there? Sonny and Katie are adorable....just a few years away from sex! Carlisle is still a mess. His daughters too. Are they really going to kill Esme? I think so..
Date: 12 Jun 2012 5:52 AM Title: Day-to-Day
the dick!!!! and of course i'm talking of carlisle!! the selfish, manipulative prick!!! he already ruined esme (and every other woman he said he loved btw!) and now he did that to alex??? he trapped her and betrayed her?? someone has to do something about it... he can't go on and on making people do whatever he wants! she should kill him while he sleeps, just to show him how much she's happy of being treated like a puppet!!! and i'm totally sure he doesn't even know what love is because when you really love someone, you only want them happy and if it means letting go, you have to do it!! and you don't trick them into marry you!! that's abuse and selfishness!!! i said it before and i'm going to say it until the end... he doesn't deserve alex, he doesn't deserve anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
