The Story: Ride

This story is HOT! Like the summary says, Edward is an ex-con who meets Bella on a *hem hem* interesting train ride. Bella thinks this is the end of their interaction but Edward won't back down. Turns out Chief of Police Charlie Swan is Edward's parole officer....guess who his newly legal daughter is? *snickers*
I'm sure some of you are wondering why Edward was in jail...well...he stole cars. It wasn't just your occasional joy ride, either. He made a business out of this. He has contacts all around the world, it's very Mobward and very swoon worthy.
His partner in crime is Jasper, a childhood friend and resident tech guy. I think this is one of the best Jaspers I have ever read. He has Aspergers syndrome and is based on a character from a movie called Adam...I gotta let you guys read this cute rambling spree he went on:
Alice was sitting at the bottom of the stairs, probably under orders not to go elsewhere until she met "Edward's friend." She stood up and eyed Jasper with the frankness of a sixteen-year old.
The dork was looking everywhere except her.
"What do you have there?" Alice asked him, not very wisely.
"In your hand."
"Oh, this?" Jasper held up the device, a small gizmo he'd been fiddling with the entire ride from Seattle. "It's a voice recognition device. I put in voice patterns of people I talk to and added SPLICE to the recognition system so when they talk, the device can talk back or tell them what they want to know according to who they are and their needs. And oh, SPLICE means Stereo based Piecewise Linear Compensation for Environment. It's an algorithm-"
"Jasper," I shook his shoulder, interrupting his toneless lecture before he could launch into a discussion of voice to text applications in high-performance aircrafts and helicopters. "How about we first put your things –"
"How does it work?" The girl actually interrupted me.
"Like this," Jasper turned to me. "Edward, say something."
"Uh, hello?" Dork.
"You're late, Edward," the device chirped in the disemboweled voice of an airport announcer.
"Cool," Alice laughed and miracle of miracles, Jasper laughed with her.
He reached out to Alice, shyly offering her the gadget. "You want to try it?"
How cute is that? *sigh*
Now that Edward is out of jail he is looking to start his business back up...will things get complicated when he pursues his parole officer's daughter at the same time? *nods* I'd say so.
