This chapter was very touching.  I have to keep the kleenex close when I read your story, but I love it.  I can't wait to see what happens next for these two.

Author's Response:

Thank you!  I'm so glad you enjoyed the chapter.  I should send tissues out for a chapter like this...;)

I'm working on the next part.  Hope you'll keep reading!!


Thanks again!

Great job! I love reading this story and I think you made me a little misty eyed with this chapter.

Cant wait for more!

Author's Response:

Thank you!  Sorry to make you misty-eyed, but it makes me happy that you connected with my story!! 


Working on more right now!!


Thanks again!

Great chapter. I love how you add little whispers from Jacob. If only we all could get little whispers from those we have would be so much easier with their guidance.

Author's Response:

Thank you!!

I'm so glad you like the interaction with Jake - even though he's not there physically.  Wouldn't it be great to have someone who could direct us? 

So glad you enjoyed the chapter!

Billy still has issues...there's more to come about that. 

Thanks again!!

This chapter made me cry!  *Sniff* From Esme watching Bella and Edward to Bella at the cemetery talking to Jake, I just lost it!  Good job at capturing the moment!  Can't wait to read what happens next!

Author's Response:

I wish I could send you a tissue... 

Thank you!!  I'm so glad you enjoyed this chapter, as sad as it was...  I'm always so happy to hear that people connect with my story!  Makes my day!

I'm writing tonight!  The chapter should be ready by Monday.  :D


Thanks again!

wow moving..... I loved the cabin moments and the realizations that they are/were all having....

and the cemetary... I kinda have to wonder if part of Billy's harshness stems from the fact that Bella is allowing herself to remember Jake and still find someone so that she is happy... and that is something that Billy wasn't able to do himself for Jake and his sisters which he has to know was hard on them.... I think that it was a blessing that Jake told Bella about how hard it was to watch Billy stay stuck and not move on and be happy... not that he was supposed to forget of course, but to take his mother with him in his memory and be happy in the rest of his life....

can't wait to see what will happen next!

Author's Response:

Thank you!!  The cabin was so much fun to write.  But, it's like they are in their own little bubble.  Real life is still out there.  sigh

You nailed Billy.  He doesn't know how to move on, and he can't understand it when someone else is able to do it.  Especially when that someone was married to his son...  There's more coming with Billy.

I'm going to write tonight...soon!!  lol


Thank you again!

Lovely chapter.  I enjoyed Esme's POV

Author's Response:

Thank you!!  I'm so glad you enjoyed the chapter, and especially Esme's POV.  She really wanted to be heard.  ;)  I'm glad you liked it!!

Reviewer: Rosa Clementine (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 02:19 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

Honestly, this story is so real and touching...I am a big fan.

You made me laugh out loud and cry...that's how I know it is a great story.


Author's Response:

Thank you!!!  You've just made my day!  I love that my story affected you.  That is a writer's goal - to tell a story that touches people!! 


Thanks again!!!  Hope you'll continue to follow my story!

Tears and a little sadness are a necesary part of life sometimes. They make you apreciate the smiles more. 

So it was Esme who covered them in the couch. She is a mother through and through and at this moment a very happy mom. All her children are fine, the one who wasn't is doing better. Yes, things won't be always fun and easy, especially in their situation, but with such a support group, they'll be able to get through it.

So now Emmett, Rose, and Edward know too about Seth and Bryce's plans. It's a tricky situation but it's good they know about the kids plans that way they can be "prepared" for what ever comes up in their heads.

I loved Jasmie's good-bye to Seth it was so cute!!!!

Edward going with them to the cementery and sharing with Seth his memories of Jacob was great. It will help Seth a lot to know he can talk about his father with the people he has close, especially with the one he wants to take such a big role in his life. It was also good for Bella to see Jacob will always be a part of their lives.

Billy wasn't as happy, which is understandable, especially at this date, and to see all three of them arriving together, it had to be tough. He wants the same things Jacob a constant in Seth's life. Fortunately he will find out he is and maybe that will warm him a little to Edward.

Bella got what she needed from this visit, the knowledge of Jacob's presence and the "sign" that she should be happy. Now she'll get to work on it ;)

Author's Response:

You are so right.  Tears and sadness are part of being human.  We really wouldn't understand how really great the best moments are if we didn't know the other side of the coin.

Esme is wonderful!  She is like most mothers - her children and their happiness are her first priority.  She sees things that the rest of the family doesn't see.  She will support Edward and Bella.  They all will!

Emmett and Rose are pulling for E&B.  He's trying to help Edward to be aware of what he is getting into - and just how serious it is!

I love writing the kids!!!  They are so much fun!

The cemetery scene was tough to write - but so necessary.  You're right.  Seth needs to know he can always talk to people about his dad.  And Bella needed the support.  She won't ever forget Jake, and that's how it should be.

Billy has more to say.  He will, and soon.  It will take him some time to allow Bella to move on.  sigh

She knows now that Jake is always there, always a part of her life.  She's getting stronger all the time!!


Thank you for your wonderful reviews!!!

I like that you gave Esme a voice. :)  Great update.  I know that Billy lost his son but I think he should want Bella to be happy to have someone for her and Seth.   I agree with what Sue said Jake would want Bella ot be happy.  Great update.

Author's Response:

I'm so glad that you enjoyed Esme's POV.  It was a gamble for me.  I'm happy it worked!  She was pushing to be heard!!  lol

Billy has to overcome his grief...he's not ready and he doesn't want Bella to be ready, either.  sigh  Jake would want Bella to be happy - he loves her!!


Thank you so much!!

Absolutely loved reading Esme's POV....I love her character and she is one strong woman....Emmy Poo and his blackmail...hehehe.  He is taking on his big brother role with Bella and very protective of her...I am glad that he had that discussion with Edward to get him to thinking....Yes he has seen heartache and total heartfail but this thing with him and Bella is right and hopefully he won't walk away from it....Both of them have had pain and they can help heal each other in ways others can't help them.....Looking forward to what comes next!!!

Author's Response:

I'm so glad you enjoyed Esme's POV.  I really debated putting it in...but she was adamant!!  Strong character.  lol  She really is strong, and such a good mother. 

Gotta love Emmett!!  He really doesn't get enough credit for his wisdom.  He's honest and open, and I love that about him.  He really did jump into the big brother role for Bella (in Twilight, as well as this story). 

Edward still needs to overcome some issues.  It will just takes time.  They really do need each other.

Writing tonight...and the next couple of nights.  Can't wait to share more!


Thank you!!

I love this tender story.  Bella's personal moments in the cemetery brought me to tears.  Thank you for sharing your story with us.

Author's Response:

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

Okay, I might be the biggest boob ever, but I actually shed a few tears writing the cemetery scene.  Pretty embarrassing when your family is asking what's wrong...and you have to tell them you're crying over what you're writing. 


Thank you for reading and reviewing!!!

Reviewer: EandBforever (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 01:36 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

I'm so glad you had Bella include Edward in their trip to the cemetary and that Edward wanted to go.  It really shows the emotion they are feeling towards each other, but not ready to voice yet.  Great job.

Author's Response:

You've nailed it.  They really do have a deep connection (as we all, but they are still a little shy about it.  There are still some unresolved issues.  They'll get there...I promise!!


Thank you so much!

Reviewer: Cullen Concession (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 01:34 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

Whew...Judging by the title I thought Esme was going to die in this chapter.  The emotions were captured very well in this chapter.

Author's Response:

Sorry I gave you heartfail with the chapter's all about Jake. 

I'm so glad I was able to convey the emotion to you!!  That means so much to me, makes me want to write faster!! ;)


Thank you!!!

First time reading this I think it is wonderful, very light hearted and the conection that E & B share is fantastic. Great job looking forward for more to come, thank you.

Author's Response:

Thank you!  I'm so glad you decided to read my story!  Very happy that you are enjoying it!!

I usually post once a week.  Look for the next update by about Sunday or Monday.

Thanks again!

Reviewer: Iwant2sparkle (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 01:18 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

Ha!  I knew it would be Emmett to find them!  I enjoyed Esme's POV.  What a loving mother she is.  Grave visit was sad and I hate that Billy reacted the way he did to Edward, but it's to be expected.  Hopefully he'll get over it soon.  After all, Jake would want Bella to be happy.  Fantastic chapter!

Author's Response:

You nailed it!!  lol  Oh yeah, Emmett will love to tease about this for a while. 

I'm so glad you liked Esme's POV.  I wasn't sure I should add another POV, but she was practically yelling at 

Billy...what can I say.  There's more there. 


Thank you so much!!  And hey, I'm looking forward to your next chapter!!

I really enjoy reading this story. It must be good because it made me cry and smile. It has alot going on and I look for another chapter soon. Thanks for your hard work and keep going with it:)

Thank you!!!!

This is a hard story for me to read. Jacob is my favorite character (he's so much like my husband!) and it really breaks my heart every time he's mentioned and to read of his death. But, you're doing a lovely job. What a tender story. Please post again soon!

Author's Response:

I'm sorry it's so hard to read - but I'm grateful that you do!!!  I love Jake, too.  He deserves to be the good guy! 

I try to post once a week.  I'm writing tonight.  ;)


Thank you so much!!

*sigh*  I always get weepy when I hear about Jake's voice on the wind.  But, I truly believe deep down that he does want her to be happy, her happiness and health are two reasons why he did what he did for both her and Seth.  

I, personally, loved hearing from Esme.  She is such a strong and amazing woman, and no matter where her disease may take her, she is now getting her prayers answered.  I also personally hope she can overcome this disease, just even thinking about anything happening to her makes me literally want to be sick.  (She is my favorite person though...the woman I would aspire to be like). 

Hmmm...poor  Billy, he seems to think Bella is moving on, and she is, but he worries she will forget Jake, will let Seth forget Jake.  I hope he will soon learn that Bella won't let that happen.  yes, she may let another man into her life and heart, but Jake was always there first. 

Thanks for the update!  Oh! I can't wait to see if Emmett tries to cash in on his "blackmail".  hehe 

Author's Response:

Yes!!  Jake does want Bella to be happy and have  a good life.  He sacrificed himself for his family - not so they could mope for the rest of their lives, but so they could live. 

I'm so glad you liked Esme's POV.  I was reluctant to add another POV, even for a short time.  I'm glad I did.  I'm with you - she is a wonderful mother.  I adore Esme. Her journey thru cancer isn't over, but she's in good shape for now!!

And got it.  He's reluctant to let go, to allow Bella to move on.  It's not something he mastered.  They seriously need to talk...and they will.

Thank you for reading and reviewing!! 

Emmett...oh, he's fun!!  lol

Reviewer: be_my_escape (Signed) · Date: September 08, 2009 12:09 PM · On: Chapter 10 In Memory of...

Great chapter. I really like how E/B's relationship is developing.  I liked the Edward/Seth interaction and I'm glad Emmett told Edward about Seth and Bryce's plotting. I really liked EsmePOV. It was good to get an outsider's view on E/B's relationship. I'm glad Edward took Bella and Seth to the cemetery. Will Billy be in future chapters more? Will he be against E/B's relationship? Can't wait to read more. Please update soon.

Author's Response:

Thank you!! 

They need to take it slowly.  Smart move for both of them.  Edward seems like he'd be a perfect dad.  :D 

Emmett is so much smarter than people give him credit for.  He's straightforward and honest.  He sees things that others don't.  He wants Edward to be aware of the reality of Seth being part of the relationship.  Good big brother! 

I almost didn't write Esme's viewpoint, but it just wouldn't let go of me.  I'm so glad you liked it.

Ah, Billy...he's got some issues with this new relationship.  You haven't heard the last from him.

Working on the next chapter tonight.


Thanks again!!
