Oh Edward, so glad Esme was able to knock some sense into you.  Don't get me wrong, I love you man, but there's only so much emo one can take before it just starts to grate on the nerves.

Hopefully now he'll be able to focus on the challenge ahead.  I'm sure Bella isn't just going to welcome Edward and the Cullen's back into her life with open arms; they did leave her after all.  At the same time, she's gone through a very traumatic experience, and it could be the perfect time for them all to resurface.  I guess only time will clue us in to her reaction.  (And whether or not Edward is able to actually hold off on the emo long enough to express himself to Bella and his unborn child).

Author's Response: They all have their work cut out for them. It will be a long and painful road. Thank you so much for reviewing!

Ah, and Edward knows.  He's got to just be beating himself up in his mind even more now than ever.  He never would have left knowing that Bella was carrying his child, it wouldn't have even been an option.  Hopefully he'll be able to snap out of his self pity long enough to realize he needs to cowboy up and grab the bull by the horns because whether he's ready or not he's going to be a father.

Just had to add, I love the fact that Emmett is so protective of Bella all this time.  I've always loved the strong sibling bond between those two.


Author's Response: Thank you again! Edward is going through a lot and his transformation isn't all on the plane, rather over the length of the story. Emmett is so wonderful. He wants to protect Bella and believe Edward and it is tearing him up. Thanks for the review!

Wow, I so can't imagine what the Cullens are thinking and feeling right now.  There has just got to be so many things going through their minds, to be able to function enough to get everything situated before they leave has just got to be an immense task.

Glad to know Edward is finally moving, even if he doesn't quite know what's going on yet.  It's been killing me having him sitting around wallowing in his own grief and self-loathing, all the while knowing that his child is growing inside Bella across the continent.  He would never behave that way if he knew.

Author's Response: There are just so many tragic mistakes and so many consequences to deal with. Edward will change very much in the coming chapters. Thanks for the review!

WAY TO GO ESME. I love your Esme so much more and damn I could so completely see this scene playing out.

What did it for me was the tapping of her manicured nail on the floor, saying
"This... Stops Now."

Holy shit I need to channel my inner Esme next time the teens start bickering...

Author's Response: Esme so rocks! I love writing her like this. Thanks for the review!

Oh, I just got back from my short trip...and you did have a chapter waiting...YAY! Edward...OMG!  He sooo does love Bella and wants nothing more than to have her back...but I'm glad he knows it most definetely will not be easy! And I loved Esme at the end telling him that he could be a child for a few more minutes.

Excellent as always...can't wait for more! :)

Author's Response: Oh wait until you hear him say how MUCH he wants her! Next chapter! Thanks so much for reviewing!

I wanted to make a quick review. I'm gobbling this up and loving every minute! I loved the interaction between Carlisle and Charlie! Can't wait to read more! :)

I am so glad he now knows i just cant wait to see what happens when he comes face to face with her and what happens when she is able to talk with him jeeze this is heavy !! good story i love it lots !

Author's Response: It gets heavier from here! Thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: MsLessa (Signed) · Date: June 03, 2009 05:18 PM · On: Chapter 18 - Bid Farewell

Let us know what's going on with Angela at the hospital if you're not going to give us Bella's POV right away.

Hooray for Esme for stepping up to the plate and verbally laying the who,what,where, on the line for Emoward.  Time to be the man Daddy Carlisle raised him to be; time to not be the little boy throwing a tantrum about how things didn't work out the way he thought they should.

You've done excellent work with this story, dealing with all this heavy emotion.  Think of this a verbal pat on the back.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the great review! You will get a bit of info on Bella in the next chapter.

Reviewer: InLustWithEC (Signed) · Date: June 03, 2009 03:41 PM · On: Chapter 18 - Bid Farewell

Very nicely done.  I loved Esme in this chapter.  Loved how she was able to make Edward become a man, and at the same time show the compassion he needs to make that transition.

What a gutwrenching chapter.  Well done.

Can't wait for more.... please update soon :)

Author's Response: Esme so rocks! She gave him just what he needed! Thank you for reviewing!

Reviewer: InLustWithEC (Signed) · Date: June 03, 2009 03:35 PM · On: Chapter 17 - Venom and Bile

<whew> glad I'm still behind everyone else so I don't have to threaten you to get back to your pc ;p

I'm glad everyone knows now that Edward had no idea.

Alice not even knowing if Bella was ok was heartbreaking, as was the pain coming from Edward.

Excellently written, can't wait for more.

Author's Response: These two chapters (17 and 18) were so draining. I am glad you were able to feel them, even if it stings a bit!

Reviewer: Burrberry Bugsy (Signed) · Date: June 03, 2009 03:10 PM · On: Chapter 18 - Bid Farewell

I know I've already reviewed this chapter, but did you get another e-mail about two other nominations? ;) If you haven't... Not Like This is up for "Best W.I.P." (The Alice Award) and "Best Angst" (The Jasper Award) over at The Cullen Awards. Now you've got three nominations under your belt! The site is posted over at the thread if you'd like to see.

SURPRISE! :) I hope they made you at least a little bit giddy. They're my small thanks to you for writing and posting this lovely story. Congratulations!!

Author's Response: OMG!!! No way! I am in tears right now! OMG! Thank you so much for believing in me and my story!

Reviewer: InLustWithEC (Signed) · Date: June 03, 2009 02:51 PM · On: Chapter 16 - Sweet Mary

Wow, glad I'm behind everyone else so I have more than one chapter to read :)

I keep reciting "she believes in happy endings" over and over after this last chappie, so thanks for the authors note.

WTG Alice, she really is able to come together in a crisis, and looks like Edward is going to go willingly with her.

Another well written chapter.

Author's Response: Alice is such a dynamo in this chapter. I love to write her! Thanks for the review!

You can't leave it there!  OMG!!! Update soon, please!

Author's Response: Lol! I always do! Thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: foxishot (Signed) · Date: June 03, 2009 09:13 AM · On: Chapter 18 - Bid Farewell

Yaaaaaaay!!! That was great--my favorite chapter so far. A perfect blend of heart-ache, self-loathing, and shock. I'm excited to read the next one. Thanks for updating so quickly. Oh, and I'm going to guess that the next POV with be.....Angela? or maybe Charlie.

Author's Response: You shall find out soon! I doubt I can keep updating every day, but I will keep them coming! Promise. Thanks for the review!

Reviewer: Victoria_Cullen (Signed) · Date: June 03, 2009 08:58 AM · On: Chapter 18 - Bid Farewell

Reviewer: ipreferbrunettes (Signed) · Date: June 03, 2009 07:05 AM · On: Chapter 18 - Bid Farewell

Poor Edward!  *sigh* I need a big hug and a cry. 

I just love the way you've portrayed him in this chapter.  I loved it and can't wait to read more.

Author's Response: Edward needs those things plus some therapy! Thanks so very much for the review!

Reviewer: AngelFromMyNightmare (Signed) · Date: June 03, 2009 04:17 AM · On: Chapter 18 - Bid Farewell

Author's Response: And you will see them all. I wrote the Charlie/Edward meeting already. Yikes! Thanks for the review!

oh...*sob**sob*...god!! Poor Edward!!! Come here I shall give you a HUGE hug and we shall cry about it together!!!! Where'd I put that chocolate...Don't worry Edward we have chocolate and the chant "she believes in happy endings...she believes in happy endings..."

Author's Response: Edward sure got kicked in the gut, hunh? We will comfort him on the thread! Keep the tissues handy from here on out! Thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: brie_116 (Signed) · Date: June 03, 2009 03:38 AM · On: Chapter 18 - Bid Farewell

Heartbreaking just overall powerful chapter.It's sad and depressing, it's just bittersweet.

Fantastic story really,don't stop.


Author's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review!

Reviewer: EandBforever (Signed) · Date: June 03, 2009 03:06 AM · On: Chapter 18 - Bid Farewell

I sure hope that baby is okay!?  I know you said you wouldn't put us through the loss of a child, so I'm going with that.  Love the update.

Author's Response: I give you my word. In fact, I have already written the scene where edward meets his child! It is all okay.

Reviewer: fletchmartin (Signed) · Date: June 03, 2009 03:05 AM · On: Chapter 18 - Bid Farewell

WOW.  That was a powerful chapter.  Esme is the bomb!  She laid it all out on the line to get Edward mentally prepared for what he is about to face and I'm so glad she did!  I feel so bad for Edward though.  Imagine finding out that the person left in order to protect has been suffering alone and pregnant all that time!  My heart aches just thinking about it.  I'm pretty sure there are more rough times ahead, like Chief Swan finding out, Bella's reaction to Edward coming back, the baby...oh my goodness, the baby!  The baby is okay right?

Well, I read all 18 chapters in one sitting and I have to say that I haven't cried this much over a story before.  Any story! Or movie!  Loving it all so far! Please update soon! 

Author's Response: Yes, there are some very tough times ahead for each of these folks. So much to fix! Thank you for the review!
