*Sigh* awesome chapter! Tho I hope Rose smacks Emmett upside the head for his little "blackmail" ideas! Whata brat!

Billy was kind of a poop. And he shouldn't be mad at Edward. He should be glad that Bella is trying to move on & be happy, just like his son would have wanted her to.

Hmm...maybe while Seth is at his Grandpa's for a few days, Bella & Eddie will get some "happy time" together under them covers, been as last time they were so Rudely interrupted by Emmett! I'm sure they both need a little 'release'  *wink*wink*

Author's Response:

Thank you!!

Emmett will use his 'blackmail' at some a joke!!  C'mon, he's Emmett!  He's pretty wise, though, and really wants what's best for everyone.

Billy is dealing with pain in the only way he knows.  He doesn't see how Bella can move on.  He will, eventually.

You've got some pretty *lemony* ideas bouncing around in your brain, don't you.  lol  I guess we'll just see what happens...  Yeah, the deck of a house full of people probably wasn't the best place to get caught up in the moment. *ahem*

Just keep readin'...*wink*wink*

Esme would want to share her feelings and opinions about her hurting son. Anything that helped give her more reason to fight had to be a good thing. I love how this story is progressing...there were several tears shed during this chapter but I still loved it.

Author's Response:

I'm so glad you enjoyed Esme's POV.  I really had doubts about adding another POV, even for a brief part of the story.  But, her thoughts were so powerful that I went with it!  I'm glad I did.

*Passing you a tissue*  Thanks for feeling the emotion!!  That means I'm doing something right!!


Thank you!!

It was great! I did cry at the cemetary but what can I was to much for words...simply stunning. =) I do hope they work it out.

I worry what Tanya has up her sleeve...witht that woman you never know.

Author's Response:

Thank you!

I'll let you in on a little secret...I cried a little writing about the cemetery.  Yeah, I'm a baby!!  I'm so glad it touched you!!

Tanya is still out there...


Thanks again!

It is beyond wonderful that Bella was able to feel a sense of release.  That is something that every widow needs. Especially the young ones that have alot of life to live.  I pray that there isn't going to be too much friction with Billy in his reaction to Bella moving on.  Every widow needs the support of her inlaws.  Unfortunately I was cut from my husband's family the day after we buried him.


You are doing a wonderful job. You are hitting the emotions that a widow goes through right on the head.  You are being sensitive. I have read a few "Bella is a widow" fan fics where they just kind of move her on with now regard to her deceased spouse at all.  They are written tastefully to a sense, but not realistic.


I am looking forward to you next update. I am channeling lots of creativity and encouragement your way.


Take care and thank you.. 

Author's Response:

I can't tell you how much it means to me that you like this story - and that the way I'm telling it works for you.  You have lived thru the worst I can imagine!  Bella does deserve to live a full and happy life - and so do you!!  Thank you!!!

Billy is stuck in his pain.  He just doesn't understand how Bella can move on.  It's sad, really.  I'm so sorry to hear that you lost more family than just your husband.

I feel your encouragement, and it makes this all so much more amazing! 


I just can't thank you enough!!  Cyber hugs to you!!


Thank you!

Another great chapter!  I had tears in my eyes, I hope this works out for them, they deserve happiness, and your Edward is so sweet and sexy and would make a great dad!  Love where you are going with this!

Author's Response:

Thank you so much!!! 

I'm glad you related to the characters!  They do deserve to be happy.  Yeah, I kinda like this Edward... ;)  Seth seems to think he'd be a great dad! 


Glad you are enjoying!!  Thanks again!

I've really been enjoying this story. Keep up the good work. :)

Author's Response:

Thank you so much!!

I'm working on the next chapter tonight.  ;)

Just started and wanted to let you know I think your story is great!

Reviewer: StoryPainter (Signed) · Date: September 09, 2009 12:49 AM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

I enjoyed getting to peak inside Esme's POV.

This is a really sweet chapter even though it is a little sad. I guess they have to find a balance between their past, present and future. It's nice that you aren't sugar coating. The story is much more realistic this way.



Author's Response:

I'm so glad you liked Esme's POV.  I really debated adding a third POV to the story, but she was adamant that she wanted to be heard.  ;)  I'm happy that I added it now. 

You really see how it works - the balance that they need to find. 

I have to say - I'm overwhelmed by the response to my story.  I told my daughter that today - she reads it as I write.  She said, "It's because it's real."  That from a 16 year old.  I'm so glad you feel that way, too!! 


Thank you for reading and reviewing!!!

Awwww...what a sweetheart that Edward is!!!!!!!!  I am glad Bella is letting him and in and vice versa.  I have a bad feeling about Billy.  Is he going to do something?  I got unnverved when he was mean to her and then asked to keep Seth for a while.  I may be reading way to much into it.  I love the sweet times and can't wait for more :)

Author's Response:

I love me a sweet Edward.  ;)  He really is a great guy.  He just needs to get over a few things...

Ah, Billy...he still has some things to say.  It's coming up.  sigh

Thank you!!  I'm so glad you are enjoying my story!!!  Yay!

Another great chapter!  I love watching B going through the healing process; and that E is there for her...

Author's Response:

Thank you!!! 

The healing process isn't easy for either of them.  Thankfully, they have each other, and family members, to help them through it.


Thanks again!

awesome.i got teary.

Author's Response:

*passing a tissue*  Honestly, I did, too.  Dang, I'm a baby.  ;)


Thank you!!!

Reviewer: iced blood (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 11:26 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

i honestly don't flat out cry while reading stories.. i get sad, but never really cry.. but something that always gets me is when someone is there but not there and they are communicating.... like when you wrote be happy in the voice in the wind.. so sad.. but billy being kinda mean was slightly uncalled for.. bella is allowed to move on he should accept that. but good job other wise

Author's Response:

I'm so glad you liked the voice.  I always wonder what people think of things like that!!  I just feel like Jake would want her to be happy - and he'd want her to know it.

Billy needs to deal with his own issues.  He will... 

Bella won't let Billy's attitude sway her.


Thank you!!

I like your surprise POV's. This had me all teary-eyed, perfection.



Author's Response:

Thank you!!!

I really didn't think I should write Esme's POV, but it wouldn't go away.  Needed to be said!! 

*passing you a tissue*  I shed a few tears writing this chapter.  Yeah, I'm a baby.  ;)


Thanks again!!

i really liked this chapter and i thought esmes pov was really great

Author's Response:

Thank you!!!  I almost didn't write in Esme's POV.  But, she was just too strong.  She wanted to be heard.  I'm so glad you liked it!!

Reviewer: lain16 (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 10:25 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

loving this story , although i got the feeling that Edward will run from Bella before he runs to her (if that makes sense)

Author's Response:

Thank you!  I'm so glad you are enjoying my story!!

I totally get what you are saying...hmmm, I guess we'll see.  ;)

Reviewer: sweetishbubble (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 09:21 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

that was a nice chapter.  Billy is obviously not ready to see Bella with another man, but he's still mourning.

Author's Response:

Thank you!!  I'm so glad you liked it!

Billy has to deal with his own grief.  He'll catch up to Bella at some point.  Sad.



Reviewer: twilight_lamb (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 08:31 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

I really liked the chapter.... I'm just sad that billy is taken it so hard.... I love that seth loves edward..

Author's Response:

Thank you!  So glad you liked the chapter!

Billy has to deal with his own pain.  He just doesn't get how Bella can move on.  More to come...

Seth and Edward are fun to write!! 


Thanks again!

nothing to say other than this story pulls on my heart, I love it. I know you are busy but keep it coming!

Author's Response:

Thank you, Peanut!!!  I'm so glad you are following this here!  I am working on the next chapter.  Really.  ;)


Hope you are doing okay!!

Reviewer: annetted (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 08:11 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

That was a great chapter and yes, it was sad, but you covered a lot of things.  I think Edward is handling things so well, maybe a little too well.  I'm thinking that maybe somethings gotta give sooner or later.  I still think that Tanya's going to turn up and throw a spanner in the works.  Maybe I'm just paranoid.

I love your story.

Author's Response:

Thank you!!  I'm so glad you liked the chapter.

Edward still hasn't dealt with everything that he need to deal with.  It will happen.  Oh, there's so much coming up!  I wish I could write faster!

Tanya is still out there.  sigh


I'm so grateful that you love my story!!  Makes it all worthwhile to hear that!  Thank you!

Reviewer: valelf (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 05:50 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

This one was a tearjerker, but in a good way. You're right, it's all part of the process. It was a beautiful chapter.

Author's Response:

It did have some weepy moments, didn't it?  I know.  I shed a few tears while I was writing it.  (I'm a huge baby!!)

I'm glad you're following them as they go thru this process!! 


Thank you so much!

Good chapter! I liked Esme's POV.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much!!

I'm so glad you liked hearing from Esme.  She really wanted to be heard!!

Reviewer: april09 (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 05:11 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

I don't think I've reviewed yet for your story but I've been reading since you first posted it.  I love how you've been developing E/B's relationship while at the same time not taking away from her relationship w/ Jake.  Finally a story where Jake isn't horrible or the bad guy!

Great cemetery scene--very believable.

I hope Tanya gets the hint and moves on but I have a feeling she might make an appearance....

Author's Response:

I'm so glad you decided to review!!  Thank you!!

E&B both need to work out their feelings before they can be in a relationship.  I love Jake.  My whole idea is based on Bella's moment in Eclipse - when she realized that in a 'normal' world, she and Jake would be perfect for each other.  They were right for each other.

I'm glad you liked the cemetery scene.  It takes me some time to write scenes like that.  It's rough.  I'm always happy to hear that people connect with them! 

Tanya...she's not quite finished. 


Thank you again!!

Reviewer: SammyJo (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 05:10 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

Loved the chapter, written very well and very moving.  Keep it up.  :)

Author's Response:

Thank you!!  I love to hear that people connect with what I've written! 

I'll keep writing if you'll keep reading!!

Reviewer: MJae (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 04:36 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

Such a great story!

Author's Response:

Thank you so much!!  I love to hear that!  It makes me want to write faster!  :D
