Cullen818 Recs...Little Green and Easybella

Little Green and Easybella by betti gefecht

Summary - Bella and Edward have met before. But she only remembers a silent little boy, and he doesn't remember her at all. When they see each other again after years, nothing is the same any more. Really nothing?

Oh, sorry! I was just thinking about this story. What is it exactly that I'm thinking about? How six little chapters can captivate me and consume me.  It's crazy!

Autismward? Yes, he does it for me! I've never read Edward like this before and I think its incredible, but I have to say, that's a true testament to this author. She is bringing Edward through in this story like none I have ever read before. I can't say enough good things about it, so you'll just have to see for yourself.

Bella has returned home after a failed marriage. She ends up living in a complex where Edward, the former boy she used to babysit, resides as well. He's  all grown up and mighty fine!  He's also intrigued by his former babysitter and lets her know in no uncertain terms.

So, at first I was thinking slightly older Bella and a teenage, autistic Edward?  I don't think so, but I gave it a shot and thank GOD I did. Its a beautifully written piece that portrays two very lonely people who are in desperate need of each other. This Edward is so honest and pure and Bella is so sweet with him. While the chapters are told in present day, I have a vivid picture in my mind of what it was like when she was his babysitter thanks to brief flashbacks. The whole story is perfect.

I also find myself going back and re-reading several of the chapters. I hardly ever do that, but I really can't help myself. One of my fave parts of the whole story so far is a breakfast with Esme. I was mortified for Bella, but the chapter was written in a way that I couldn't stop giggling. You have to see for yourself.

Can you tell I love this story?
