Another teaser Breach Chapter 14

We were so behind that it was Thursday afternoon and I still hadn’t eaten anything. I found myself making stupid mistakes and knew I needed to take a break, but at the same time there were only two hours left until I headed out.

Jack had dictated that I wasn’t to stay past six for the next week or he would escort me out personally. Any attempts to tell him I was fine fell on deaf ears. He was the boss after all.
Edward hadn’t really spoken to me since I had returned but today he felt the need to address that I existed.

“Isabella, go eat something,” Edward spoke when I was midway through the Hansen file. I could see in my peripheral that his head had not turned in my direction, he was still staring at the screen.

“No,” I responded, my eyes still on the screen, my fingers typing away on the Hansen file.

“Go,” he commanded.

“I’m not hungry,” I responded. Didn’t he know he couldn’t tell me what to do anymore?

He slammed his hands down on his desk, startling me. My head snapped up to look at him and I watched him walk briskly out of the door. He returned a moment later and slammed something onto my desk.

“Eat it,” he demanded.


“Eat the fucking granola bar before I shove it down your throat.”

I picked up the granola bar and threw it against the wall. It hit with a crack and fell to the floor.

“Oh, I’ve heard that threat before,” I spat up at him.

His eyes grew wide as he stared down at me. His mask slipped and I could see, just for a split second, the pain that lay beneath.

I had to admit it hurt to see that pain in his eyes, because if he was in pain I couldn’t help to wonder why he had separated us then. All that brought was a tightening pain in my chest and hope. I had to
squash the hope.

Nothing good came with hope.


  1. I'm glad they're talking, if you could call it that. Can't wait till you post the next chapter. xox

  2. Oh I love that she does not give him an inch. Isn't that how this whole thing got started. A battle of wills. Ooooo
