As with all my rec’s, this is rated M for sexy times. Turn around now if you’re under 18.
In the prologue of A Pound of Flesh, Bella is 9 years old and adores her father, Senator Charles Swan. He is very much involved in causes that help those less fortunate in his city, and he passes on this dedication to help along to Bella. Tragically, while out on an outing, Charles and Bella are attacked by a group of thugs, and before Bella can be killed too, a hooded figure takes her away and keeps her safe until the police arrive.
Chapter One starts picks up 15 years later, and we find out Bella has dedicated her life to her promise to her father. She’s a teacher who has taught all over the world, but still feels she’s not keeping the promise she made to help those who really need it.
Against the protests of everyone in her life, Bella applies for a job teaching in a prison. Since the turnover at this particular prison for tutors is high and her credentials are impeccable, Bella lands the job.
Meanwhile, the reason tutors practically run screaming from their jobs here is finally introduced to us. I present Punk Ass Ward:
“Where ya been fucker?” McCarty asked with a wide smile and a slap against Cullen’s shoulder that made him wobble on his feet. “I’ve missed your punk ass face.”
“Give me a smoke and I’ll tell you all about it,” Cullen answered with a smirk, wincing internally at the force at which his hand had connected with him. Fucking Emmett…
“I had a slight ‘disagreement’ with one of the tutors and the shit head put me on twenty-four hour punishment.”
“Fucker,” Emmett repeated and Cullen nodded turning towards him.
“It’s on, Emmett. I shit you not.”
Emmett saw the look of determination in Cullen’s eyes, bumped his fist and smirked with his cigarette dangling from his mouth.
“Better believe it baby,” he acquiesced enthusiastically with a wink.
He would have Cullen’s back. They had known each other a lot of years both inside and outside detention and it was the least he could fucking do. Cullen had been there for Emmett on a couple of occasions on the outside, saving his ass both times. Yeah, if Cullen needed him, he would be there, especially if it meant getting that Newton prick and wiping the smile of his butt ugly face.
They both turned quickly – their heads snapping with a sharpness only achieved by long sentences of incarceration with fuckers who could be sly and quick – when they heard a loud bout of whistles and jeers from the court.
Emmett snorted and smiled. “Talking of tutors,” he muttered as he cocked a satisfied eyebrow.
Cullen followed his stare across the court and through the fencing, to see a small brunette with the tightest ass he had ever seen, wrapped in a black, knee length pencil skirt, scuttling quickly across the car lot towards a sweet Mini Cooper. Her pale legs looked awesome as they disappeared into a pair of black heeled shoes that, even from Cullen’s viewpoint, screamed hard sex.
“Who the fuck is that?” he asked, trying to hide the fact that he was craning his neck to see past the other inmates who were milling around the fence like kids at a zoo, blocking his view. Bastards…
“That is Miss Swan,” Emmett answered with a slow sigh as he leaned his elbows back on the table behind him and crossed his legs at the ankles, “The new Lit tutor. She’s cool actually. I had my first session with her today.”
“Well, at least that’s a plus,” Cullen muttered as he put his cigarette out on the bench beside him.
“What?” Emmett asked with a frown.
“The tutor…” he waved his hand towards where the Mini had disappeared. “Miss…”
“Swan,” Emmett finished for him.
“Yeah, Miss Swan,” he acknowledged. “That’s one good thing about me doing Lit.”
*Sigh* Oh, Punk Ass Ward. This is how I picture him:
Even though there has not been a lemon yet (between Edward and Bella at least), this story is EFFING. HOT. When it finally does happen, my computer will probably explode from the sexiness of it.
I just found this story this week, and I loved it so much immediately that I read it until I finished at 9 in the MORNING. On a week day. Yes, I could hardly see when I was done, and yes, it was totally worth it. I almost peed myself when this updated yesterday too, so to say I’m interested in what happens with these characters is putting it very lightly.
So if you’re looking for another good story to add to your updates list, this one needs to be next. Go read and and leave some good reviews because jaxon22 deserves it!
