I loved this chapter. Edward resting his head on her heart. Sigh. He's come so far.
And all the sparkling...I have a (ahem) soft spot for the sparkling.
Over and over he did this, relearning what the earth was like.
--I loved this bit as well. He's relearning everything, really.
“They weren’t vampires,” he answered quickly, his eyebrows knitting together in uncertainty. He looked up from the water and directly to me, shaking his head in confusion before continuing. “Your -,” he started, but stopped short, swallowing hard. “– before last week, I’d never seen another vampire.”
--I love getting another clue to the puzzle. I love the mystery of it all. I have no idea what's going on. But, I love it, nonetheless. I've decided to just enjoy the ride and not bother trying to figure it out.

Okay, all the lovely thoughts I had in my brain slipped right out with the reveal that Edward had never met a vampire before. Who/what had hold of him? Werewolves? You totally shocked me!!! (Yes, that was a triple !!! shock!!!)
I really should be in bed now, but I saw the update, and just couldn't go to sleep knowing it was there. I had to read it. I know I've been absent, but it's spring, and that means lots of work for me. I promise to be back once everything is growing outside.
Speaking of outside, YEAH! They went outside! Edward had never seen himself sparkle! That is so cool! He must have been completely freaking out the first moment he saw himself. No wonder he escaped back to the shadows. I loved the lines you incorporated from the book. They fit perfectly.
I'm glad you included Edward's interaction with Carlisle. It's nice to see him start to trust someone other than Bella. He needs to gain that. Of course, having never met a vampire before, his reactions make a bunch more sense!
Now, I will finally go to bed, and dream of what on earth could have held Edward hostage for 90 years...
Haha, I figured I'd trip a few people up with that :) All will be revealed in time. Whether people hate me for it or love me for it, I can't say just yet, but I'm stickin to my guns on it... and we'll see how it goes :D
Of course I miss you, but I understand that RL calls.. I'm struggling to keep updates coming ONCE a week now, when I used to get them out twice a week! And I'm STILL falling behind on RL.. gah! I look forward to your homecoming, but obviously RL comes first :)
I'm glad you enjoyed the little homage to the original! It's one of those cliche's that everyone hates, but I tried to keep it pretty unique and it just.. fit.. with what I was trying to do! :) So glad that worked out.. :D
And CPOV! After all those people said they skipped over non exb time, everyone seems to be pleased with this chap's epic amount of CPOV, and that couldn't make me happier, because frankly, I'm really really interested in his budding relationships with family members, and I was always saddened that some people didn't care :) So I'm SO happy that you liked the CPOV!
Thanks so much for reviewing as always, glad you're stickin' with me!

I was kinda wondering if it might be humans that held him captive. I am suprised that he has never seen another vamp! I can't wait to read more, I look several times a day for your updates, I love this story :)

Yes, I am surprised Edward had never seen a vamp before, like Bella I assumed that's who held him captive. If not vamps then I wonder who... wolves? Hmmm...
Your story is so beautiful. I love the way the romance is developing.

Wow, okay so I was wrong- I was thinking the Volturi had something to do with it. Not vampires, surprising, but them who made him, and just left him?
The plot thickens!
I love this story, we actually got some romance this chapter, yay, so beautiful!
I'm glad Carlisle was able to make some progress with him. They are so close in canon, obviously, but without Carlisle being his maker I was afraid that bond would be lost. It's looking like he will be able to gain his confidance.
Wonderful chapter, as usual. I can't wait for more!

Wow. I was so excited to see this update tonight! I am so happy that Edward is starting to trust Carlisle and Alice a little. I love how Carlisle told him all about Bella memories, especially those with Charlie. I have this beautful image of Jasper and Charlie fishing together. Thanks for that. :)
I am wondering why Edward is so afraid of the Cullens if he's never seen another vamp before. I wonder how much he knows about vampires and exactly how you will explain his change. I look forward to that. :)

I just adore this story and was so happy that you updated. I wonder what Bella babbled in her sleep? It's sweet and hopeful that they've ventured outside together. Looking forward to your next update!
Reviewer: Psykojinx (Signed)

Woah... Then why wasn't he as afraid of her as he was of the Cullens?
Also... Shouldn't they get him some technology books to acclimate him to his new surroundings? haha =3
Perhaps start off with a book about toasters and go from there.

Nice cliffhanger! I really like this story and I'm glad we are going to start finding out about who did this to our Edward.

Loved it. He's coming out of his shell in such a realistic way. Yes I'm impatient, but any faster wouldn't seem right. So was he kept by shapeshifters? werewolves? have you added a whole new category like witches? hmmm

WHAT? Not other vampires? Was it like a secret government thing where they locked them up to do experiments??
I loved how the only way Carlisle could get him to cooperate and calm down was to think of Bella :) So sweet.

and what did bella say in her sleep?!

Wow. What a description. This story is frighteningly compelling.
I can't believe how stupid Bella acted, but it does make sense with the being drawn to him part. I can't help but wonder if her Blood is more of a pain to him then she knows?
This is very unique, and I'm on to the second chapter.

Wow - you always leave me so speechless.
I love this chapter so much. I'm not exactly understanding Carlisle right now, except that I assume his discomfort with the situation is much like Edward's in SM's books. Of course we haven't been privy yet to Alice's visions, but I'm assuming that it bothers Carlisle greatly for Bella to lose her humanity.
That being said, it was so touching to watch Carlisle (you have a great ability to make me feel like I am physically watching this story unfold) when he fed Edward. Using the memories and images of Bella was fantastic. And Carlisle is true to form in dealing with Edward so compassionately.
And the whole scene outside? Oh, my!!! I nearly cried when he listened to her heartbeat and said "beautiful" back to her.
What a bombshell at the end of the chapter! One of your many writing strengths shining through. I love to try to figure things out, but I admit that I don't have a clue what the hell is going on. You are a freaking fantastic writer!

Amazing chapter like always! =D
Like everyone else I did not see that coming that Edward was captured by humans. Now I have a whole bunch of new questions. Like who changed him and how did they capture him considering newborns are so strong?
I can't wait to hear more about Edward's background and to see Edward and Bella's relationship develop more. I just love that he is so trusting of her and that when Carlisle was feeding him how thoughts of Bella calm him I couldn't help but smile.
Can't wait for more!
