ICF Chapter 13 Teaser and explanations

Hi all, I apologise for not posting a teaser for chapter 12 but I was away for a week and when I got back I just posted as I thought you'd all like to have the chapter quicker. Also, as many of you know, sadly pulled chapter 3 for mature content which violated their TOS, without warning. This has meant I've had to leave an extract up in chapter 3's place, with the link to go and read it on Twilighted. I am still continuing to post my story on, but any future smutty chapters will only be posted in full on Twilighted. I'll hope you'll go and read them there!

Without further ado, here's a teaser for chapter 13:

“Oh my God, shut up!” I said, flushing scarlet as I tried to suppress a giggle. “I literally ran out of the house in the first thing I found. My mother sent this stupid t-shirt to me a couple of years ago - she has a strange sense of humour.”

“No, no,” he said, smiling. “It looks good on you, seriously. You’re working an eighties look today.” He cocked one eyebrow and I burst out giggling, clapping a hand over my mouth.

“Uh, thanks I guess,” I said after a moment, a hint of a smile still playing on my lips.

He made a face. “Did I just say you were ‘working a look’? I think it’s spending too much time around Charlotte reading her fashion magazines behind the bar. I must be absorbing the stupid phrases they use by osmosis or something.”

“It’s okay. It made me laugh, even if you’re a terrible liar. I’m wearing the most ridiculous clothes I own and I have no makeup on.”

“You don’t need it. You’ve got lovely skin,” he said quietly, his eyes lingering on my face just a moment too long. That was the thing about Jasper. He could be completely normal and jokey, and then he’d suddenly compliment me in that intense, sexy voice of his, and I’d turn to jelly. I felt a hint of warmth over my body, and felt ashamed at how much he affected me. Swallowing, I coughed nervously and he looked away, biting down on his lip as if he were aware he’d said something he shouldn’t.

“You flatter me too much,” I said lightly, trying to break the tension, and was relieved when his face creased into a smile.

“Just as much as you deserve to be, beautiful,” he said, taking a sip of his coffee. I drank a little of mine for something to do, and felt the hazy, woolly feeling in my brain begin to lift as the caffeine worked its way into my system. I was aware that he was flirting with me, was with Jasper it was hard to gauge how serious he was being. He was that kind of guy, really, so it could have been entirely innocent. However, the possibility that there was a hint of meaning behind his words made them even more delicious. It dawned on me that he probably spent his whole time saying those kinds of things to girls at the bar, and yet, I was eating them up. How pathetic. I fiddled with my hair, trying to compose myself.

Hope you enjoyed that little taste of what's to come! The chapter will be on its way
