The Stranger

Hey Guys! I currently have the new Lee Legacy chapter written up. I just have to get the pictures. Which is what I’m going to do now. But anyway! As some of you who read my ISBI could probably tell… Jax had been over at my house, and we did an ISBI chapter together. But, a couple days before that, while she was over, I had been out and about at job interviews, and she had been at home and wrote this out. I thought it was sweet, so I’m posting it! The pictures are wide screen, and my theme squishes them, so they are a bit distorted. She doesn’t know I’m doing this, and I hope she doesn’t have a problem with it! *Crosses Fingers* So without further ado… I present to you “The Stranger”



Tap, tap, tap.

The rain fell hard against the woman standing in the rain. She reached forward, struggling to open her mailbox.

“Dang it…” she choked out, “Why of all days?”

Again she pulled and yanked to get it open… but to her misfortune, she had no success.

After one last try, the woman – whose name was Jacqueline – decided to give up and head back inside. She turned to unlock the door to the apartment complex when she realized she had forgotten something important – her keys.

“Are you kidding me?!” She screeched, “For the love of-“


In the midst of her rage a figure standing at her side spoke softly.

“Need some help?” he questioned, holding out a hand and wearing a warm smile.

Jacqueline turned to face the man, unsure if she should trust him or not. After all, he could be some creepy stalker or something!


Jacqueline sighed, “I… sort of locked myself out of the building. I left my keys in my apartment by accident.”

The man smirked a little, “Oh, I see. Well, I happen to have a spare set. You know, just in case something happens.” 


He walked towards the woman, gently resting his arm around her waist.

“Come on.” he insisted, “Follow me inside. And since we’re at it… Why not just come up to my apartment with me? It’s cold and rainy; I could fix you up something warm. Like coffee.”

“You know I don’t- I mean, no thanks… I don’t like coffee.” Jacqueline sighed, “Soup sounds nice though.”

He smiled, “Soup it is then.”


They entered the apartment building; shaking off any excess rain from their hands and feet.

“I love the rain… but sometimes only from a distance.” Jacqueline mentioned.

The man, whose name was learned to be Nathaniel, shook his head.

“Come on, we’re almost there.”


They entered Nathaniel’s apartment; both of them just glancing around.

“Well, this is the place.”

Jacqueline looked over at him, “It’s cozy. Kind of feels like I’ve been here before...”

“Really? Well, what a coincidence…” he smiled, “Now about that soup…”


Before Nathaniel could gesture anything else, Jacqueline began to slightly cry.

“I’m sorry, this doesn’t feel right!” she cried, “I have a boyfriend already… I shouldn’t be here with you. What if he finds out?”

Nathaniel rested a hand on her shoulder, “Hey, it’s okay. I’ll make sure not to tell him about this. Or the fact that you forget everything. Seriously, you locked yourself out of my apartment that fast?? I was only going to the store, you foof!”


Jacqueline laughed, “Oh hush your face! You know I have the attention span of a pea.”

“Oh, you have that much?”


Jacqueline gasped, “You’re such a meanie butt!”

“Hey, I’m not the one struggling outside in the rain like a weirdo.”

“Oh you act like you have SO much room to talk.” Jacqueline huffed.

Nathaniel chuckled, “Well, last time I checked my apartment was pretty roomy.”


Jacqueline crossed her arms, “I don’t wanna talk to you, you butt.”

Nathaniel smirked, “Oh, come here…” he stated, tugging her into a kiss.





Nathaniel released from his kiss, “You know I love you, right?”

“Of course.” Jacqueline smiled, “Forever and always.”


Thanks for reading guys!

    Too cute! It immediately pulled me in. I want to hear the rest of the story. Why doesn’t she remember? How did they meet? How did she land such a hunk without remembering she landed him? It is a great little teaser.
