Earlier this year, Julie Vans–guest author on Twilight: The Missing Pieces–decided that Edward and Bella needed a vacation and so began writing a series of stories taking the couple from the Olympic Mountains to Jacksonville, Florida, to Isle Esme, and on to England and Switzerland. Now that Julie has completed three stories in the travelogue, I’ve created a page to highlight them. Called Together Away, the series can be accessed through the main menu at the top of each page.
The first entry, “The Mountain,” finds Edward and Bella visiting a special place in the Olympic Mountains just after the couple has been forced to sever ties with Bella’s mother (a story told in Twenty Years On). Bella proposes that she and Edward take a journey together and convinces him to let her check up on her mother along the way.
“Florida” takes up in Jacksonville where, under Alice’s direction (or interference, depending on how you look at it), Edward and Bella spy on Renee and discover how she is faring.
The journey moves on with “Isle Esme, Part 1,” a steamy chronicle of Edward and Bella’s return to the island on the ninth year after their honeymoon. Memories of that earlier time bombard Edward as he and Bella arrive and collapse into the sand together. This is a sensual story for mature readers only, which will continue in “Isle Esme, Part 2.” After that, the couple will travel overseas.
In the timeline of Twilight: The Missing Pieces, Together Away covers a period of one year beginning in 2015, three years after the Private Diary of EAC ends. The next series of tales, Twenty Years On, takes up in the year 2032 when Mike Newton, now in his early forties, nearly catches sight of Edward and Bella walking the streets of Seattle.
Julie Vans is an up-and-coming writer with a special interest in erotica (website currently under construction). Writing stories as Edward Cullen is one of the many projects she has taken on in the last year. Life is busy, but she always leaves room for the Cullens amid the bedlam.
