Characters: Lizette Swan, Julian Pointe-Clare
Summary: Lizette is dazzled by a handsome stranger.
Liz had read the Twilight series before, and didn't understand how someone could possibly dazzle you.
I mean, it didn't make any sense, right?
Until last week, that is. Liz had finally unpacked and was getting to know her new block by jogging daily. Her headset in her ears, she didn't notice the tall, blond haired, blue eyed stranger with his guitar case on his back coming down the street, until, that is, they slammed into each other.
Liz was beside herself. Way to meet the neighbours, she had thought. And then he talked to her.
"So sorry, my fault, I wasn't paying attention. Are you okay?" he had said, a small smile gracing his face. Liz grabbed the hand he offered, as he helped her get up.
"Yeah. No. I mean, yeah, I'm fine. Sorry, I wasn't paying much attention..." she had started to ramble. But with a smile, he had shrugged it off, taking the full responsibility as he had said. He went on to tell her his name was Julian, and that he, too, had just moved to this area, thanks to his cousin. Smiling, she told him her name was Lizette, but everyone called her Liz, and she had just moved out, and was happy to meet someone else who was new to the area.
After their encounter, she started jogging again, completely...well, dazzled. The one thing he had said to her, that made her feel like a teenage girl again, kept coming back in her thoughts...
"Hey, maybe we could walk some time; try to get to know the neighbourhood together."
Liz was completely dazzled.
A/N-I feel the need to mention that I don't own Twilight. The series was okay, until the movies came out. Then it just got ruined-I can't even read the books anymore :). I'm pretty sure Bella described Edward as dazzling at one point, hence the reference. But it's been so long, and pirates are currently on my mind...anyways, Lizette Swan is a not so developed character as of now. I plan to explore her in the sequel to Remnants, because she gets a story too :P she is a little naive, and a bit of a helpless romantic girl. Julian is an artsy dude, who is a sort of nomad, and hasn't really settled down anywhere, after a past incident.
UPDATE 10/27/12-I kept this one, as well. I don't write about Liz enough.
