Anche, io ti amo, mia bella amica. Now that's love and dedication reviewing while in Italy. Heart you hard, bb. I know the chappy was brutal, but glad you "got" it. Oh, and I would never forget you. That would be impossible. Cannot wait for you to reach ch. 35. Baci, ciao bella!

Who took the condoms? Maybe the stalker or one of Roberts family for their private use? I'm looking forward to find out.

Can't wait for more.

thanks for posting.

Author's Response:

Good guesses. All will be revealed very soon. Thanks for reviewing!

Hello Scilla, I'm RL4Evr. Oh girl, with this FF I get so deep that sometimes affects me too much. I have not left any review earlier because I really  mobilize with this incredible story. But today is stronger if it could, and I can only say that this Marisa you created in this chapter is absolutely Argentina ... It's like You describe me from toes to the head. And a argentinen women are exactly what you say, as well stupid it is, is going to sacrifice because it is not believed to be at the level... As is Scilla, as it is ...
I have to congratulate you on your writing as smooth as perfectly understandable for those who are not accustomed to the language, almost as if reading Spanish.
I'm sending you a kiss and urgently hope these next chapters are going to be more  distressing than the typical South American novel!

Author's Response:

Que alegria RobLover! So happy to see you here. I am humbled that you think I am doing Argentine women justice. That means a lot to me. Thank you so much for your kind words. Please keep reviewing, I'd love to hear what you think of upcoming chapters. Mil gracias y un beso para ti tambien. Muaaa.

Oh no : s. I guess this is the beginning of the angst, then...

I guess I feel sort of sympathetic towards Marisa. I mean the age difference between them does seem more significent when you look at how old they'll be in ten years. Most people would have doubts about that.

Then again, it seems kind of frustrating that all of these doubts came to the surface just because of one terrible dinner with his mother. I mean, mothers are always over protective of their children and given the age difference it's inevitable that she'd feel that way. And the 'break up with him because I love him' argument never ceases to frustrate me. It's a good reason and all that but it just causes unnecessary pain. For everyone.

So yeah, I may have analysed this a bit too much, lol. Guess this means you're good at getting readers attached to the characters, huh? : )

Author's Response:

I'm glad you're thinking about the story and the characters and that you're attached, although given the content of this chapter, that makes it more difficult. Let's see if Marisa can be as self-sacrificing as she's intending to be. Thanks so much for reviewing!

Author's Response:

Hi Kim, welcome! Well you'll definitely relate to Marisa then, lol. Hope you continue to read and enjoy OTI and please keep reviewing. I'd love to read what you think of the other chappies. Thanks again!

I want to love Clare, I really do (and I especially love her in lostluggage's tales) because she's at least half of the reason that Rob is what he is; but I can't like what she's doing to our beloved Marisa here :(

For a moment (being not very airport name savvy) I thought she was fleeing home and not to Rob and I was about to give her a rousing. *L* I know what she's planning to do, but there's no way Rob's going to let go of her without a reason and he's not going to believe a lie, nor will he accept her real reasoning. I can certainly understand Marisa's fears and Clare gouged deep into those, but for once she needs to let go of her demons and trust Rob.

Author's Response:

I know, I feel bad that Clare is being painted in such a negative, protective momma bear light in this chapter. I'm not reading lostluggage's story yet, 'cos Steph and I agreed to wait until our stories are completed to read them, so I'm not sure what Clare's like in her story. All I can say is that Steph's story is twice as long as mine so far, so give Clare some time to come around. Let's hope she does. I love that you totally "get" Rob and are sure he's not going to give up without a fight. Go Rob! Thanks so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: Kazbar (Signed) · Date: September 02, 2010 07:19 AM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie

Can I say what a cow Robs mum is? She is a cow. Well the mum you have written here. I'm sure she is a wonderful lady in real life. She would have tone to have made such a wonderful son. Marisa, get on that plane and go claim your man, don't break it off. Mums be damned.

Author's Response:

Poor Mrs. P, lol. I'm glad you're emotionally invested in the story and especially in Marisa. Let's hope Clare comes around eventually, but Rob and Marisa will have to stay together for that to happen. Let's see what happens in ch. 35. Thanks so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: Ojojoj (Signed) · Date: September 01, 2010 11:19 PM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie

Another great chappie Scilla! You never disappoint. And yes, I definately relate to Marisa's situation. These doubts had to emerge given the age difference and their different lifestyles. I have hopes though, I am a true beliver, yes I am! ;-) // Dr C

Author's Response:

I'm glad you can empathize with the situation, and thanks so much for your kind words. Ch. 35 coming up very soon. Thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: eyeonrob (Signed) · Date: September 01, 2010 10:15 PM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie

"Lordy, lordy, Marisa's done gone and lost her mind" Scilla, I hearby christen you an honorary Southern "Georgia Peach" hoor. You done good,bb! WHOA that was a tough chappie to read. All of Marissa's doubts about the age difference that she had pushed into the background have come roaring front and center, thanks to Claire. As harsh as it seems, you can't blame her for the reservations she has about this relationship. She knows her son well and even though she certainly has some selfish motivations of her own, she really is trying to protect her son and even possibly Marissa. HOWEVER, let's get real here. As an older hoor myself, I can tell you that if I were Marissa, there would be NO way in hell that I would give up that man. I'm too selfish. How could you survive the withdrawal from HHH???

Can't wait to see what happens in Paris. Hope Rob talks some sense into her. He has some mighty powers of persuasion.


Author's Response: Why thank you, I do declare...I'll accept my honorary Southern Georgia Peach hoor status, lol. It was definitely hard for me to write the chappy as well. And let's hope Rob turns the powers of persuasion on high, or, er, hard. Thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: loving40s (Signed) · Date: September 01, 2010 07:46 PM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie

I don't hate you; I think this is very realistic.  I don't think the issue of her being 52 when he's 35 ....and him wanting a younger woman is an issue.  I think the 'having a family' is a legitimate issue. Rob definately wants children/family of his own. Being 42, Marisa is already to the age it is difficult to get pregnant.  If they really wanted to be together anyway, she could go through fertility treatment, but they're not even to that point yet. She'd probably be at least 45 before Rob would be ready to start a family.  I actually think she's being mature and realistic about this. But she shouldn't take the choice away from him and just break up.  She should tell him what she's thinking, that she probably could never give him children, and discuss it together.

As always, well done.  Can't wait for Paris!


Author's Response:

Very good points. Let's hope Marisa stops being so self-sacrificing and communicates with Rob. Ch. 35 coming up soon. Thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: Binky1 (Signed) · Date: September 01, 2010 06:04 PM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie

Well, you did warn me about the angst and you delivered!!  Poor Marisa - she needed a couple more Peach Martinis.  Great writing as always Scilla - can't wait, can't wait, can't wait for the next chapter..... Love Ya BB!!

Author's Response:

She needed a whole tree of Peach Martinis, lol. Ch. 35 coming up soon. Thanks so much for reviewing, bb!

God, I know this had to be covered. It is vital and you told the story well. But I still don't like it. Doubts......I just don't like em.

Author's Response:

I know, I don't like it either. A lot will happen in ch. 35. Thanks so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: naturaladdict (Signed) · Date: September 01, 2010 01:47 PM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie

Oh boy! You know I love Clare, but in this chapter I got really mad at her. And Marisa.. NO! Don't do it girl!!! I definitely want to shake her or smack her or something. Hoping when she sees Rob those thoughts will vanish, like any thought that could exist in my head if I saw him.

Can't wait for the next chappy!

Author's Response:

So true, so true. Editing ch. 35 right now. Can't wait til you read it. Thanks so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: duders79 (Signed) · Date: September 01, 2010 01:30 PM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie

Okay, first things first - Richard in speedos - PRICELESS!

Now, onto the serious stuff....Waaaaaaaah! 

I can see where Clare is coming from here.  Rob is young, and she is looking out for him.  Marisa's insecurities have been well and truly highlighted though and that for me is so very sad...Rob has a say in all this.  He has made a choice.  The choice is Marisa. She needs to give him the opportunity to talk this through in my humble opinion, but I feel like she's too sensitive right now.  She might just end it.  Nooooo!

As for the missing condoms....huh?!

Love it as always Scilla.  I trust you on this.  Make it better soon please.

Duders x

Author's Response:

I LOVED writing Rich in a Speedo, too funny, right? I like the way you put it "The choice is Marisa." That pretty much says it all, let's hope she figures that out before it's too late. Missing condoms mystery will be revealed in the next chappy for sure. Thanks for putting your trust in me, I don't think you'll be disappointed. Thanks so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: FlorenA (Signed) · Date: September 01, 2010 01:09 PM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie


I knew this was coming but it hurts the same... I guess I can see Clare's point ( if I had a ¨baby boy¨ I would be a little bit worried too...)

but I don't know if I could do what Marisa is thinking of doing... I never thought about failed relations like a waist of time, even the ones that ended rather badly... so I always keep things going until they just end... I guess that I'm one of those who sees the growth that comes with all experiences, I mean I can see Marisa's point, but I guess I'm too selfish to do the ¨ I love you so I have to leave you ¨ thing...                                                                                 I really don't know how you are going to solve this... I'm a bit scarred... and I'm dying to see what comes next!!! can't wait till next chappie!! you are going to have us reaching for the tissues aren'tcha? but it's OK... bumpy rides are fun as long there is a happy ending at the end of the road... please tell me there is a happy ending, pretty please :)                                                              <3



Author's Response:

Yeah, Marisa is being very self-sacrificing, I don't think I could do it either. Let's see if she can go through with it. Like I said, please trust me, ch. 35 will be interesting and unexpected. Thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: spunkaroo (Signed) · Date: September 01, 2010 01:07 PM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie

scilla, you are testing my limits. I hate that Clare made Marissa doubt her importance to Rob. They love each other and will figure out all this other bullshit. I'm glad she's going to Paris, just wish it wasn't with this cloud hanging over her....I know Rob can change all that. Luv you hOOR, luv your story....more, more, more.


Author's Response:

Ch. 35 will be interesting and unexpected, let's hope Rob removes that cloud, with his teeth, lol. Thanks so much bb, and thanks for reviewing!

Wow, Scilla, that was intense.  I just wonder whether she'll have the strength to actually make good on the resolve top break up with him.... or maybe you've gone and thrown us for a loop and there's something different coming down the pike?

Author's Response:

You'll have to wait and see...I know, I know, I'm being such a tease. I think ch. 35 will have some unexpected things in it. Can't wait til you read it. Thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: SwimmingBee (Signed) · Date: September 01, 2010 09:58 AM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie

Oh, Scilla! Waaaah!

Even though this was an angst-filled chapter, there were definitely still moment that made me chuckle. Like Tom looking like a prepubescent boy with rosy cheeks and a cigarette. And Richard stretching out on the lounge chair in just his Speedo. Haaa!

And go Clare, ordering a Gin and Tonic! Woo!

But whew, she sure did come off harshly! Yeouch! Maybe we should blame it on the G&T. Poor Marisa!

And oh dear. I hope she gets to France quickly, because surely there's no way Rob is going to let her break up with him. Right!? Eeeek!

She's braver than me though. I would never swim butterfly-style naked in the swimming pool. Hehehee.

Loved it! Thanks for another wonderful chapter, Scilla!


Author's Response:

I love the way you've highlighted all the points in the chappy! Now that I think about it swimming butterfly naked would be kind of funny. On and as for the Gin and Tonic, one of my English bb's told me to put that in there, said it wasn't even considered a cocktail in England, more like a palate cleanser, lol. Can't wait 'til you read the next chappy, lots happening. Thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: LynnO (Signed) · Date: September 01, 2010 07:11 AM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie

Wow, lots shorter than usual.  I HOPE (hint hint) that means that the next chapter will be long and up in a short amount of time?  (HINT HINT)  

I am someone who has a relationship with a younger man (13 yrs) so I can certainly feel for Marisa with the age issue.  

Great job as always, thank you for writing this, and PLEASE type really really fast!!  :)

Author's Response:

Yep, this one was short, but not sweet, I'm afraid. And you're right the next chapter has already been written. I'm in the process of editing it now. Thanks for sharing about your relationship and thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: midnightgirl (Signed) · Date: September 01, 2010 06:49 AM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie

hopefully we wont have to wait as long for the next chapter. that tends to make people lose interest.

Author's Response:

Hi there, I hear your frustration with having to wait. I don't like waiting more than three weeks between story chapters for stories I'm following either. Just wanted to shed some light on the process at Twilighted. After the author writes a chapter, it has to be submitted to a validation beta before it gets posted. Twilighted is going through some changes and they are a bit short staffed as of late. The validation process can take anywhere from one day to ten days or more. This means an author could have written a chapter within one week of their last one, but then not have that chapter validated for 1 to 2 weeks. I try not to go more than 2 weeks between chapters, every once in a while it might be longer than that though, I hope you're invested in the story enough to not lose interest due to posting issues. If you have any other questions about it, I'd love it if you stopped by the OTI Forum under the Other Category in the Twilighted Forums. Take care, Scilla

Reviewer: Janners (Signed) · Date: September 01, 2010 06:27 AM · On: Chapter 34--La Folie

Actually, you outlined exactly how I would imagine a conversation would go with the mum of a younger man be it Rob or any other 20-something.

This is why I think the whole cougar thing is great on paper but not for me in real life.

BTW - been to Grauman's and the Kodak Theatre! I love stories that put landmarks I can "see" in them!

See you when I get back!  Be good! ;-)


Author's Response:

Yeah, I was hoping it would seem realistic, although Clare was a bit harsh. Grauman's and the Kodak Theatre are definitely very Hollywood. Hope you have a great time on your vacay. Thanks for reviewing!

As much as we saw this coming it sucks. Of course rob moms wouldn´t be pleased with him dating an older woman, but poor Marisa...

Is she really going to break up with him? I'm sure as soon as the see each other they will be ok again.

Sorry for not reviewing the last chapters but I usually read from my iPhone and I can't review from there.

Besos y abrazos desde España

Author's Response:

So glad to see you back! Let's hope the minute Marisa looks into those beautiful eyes, she'll forget her crazy plan. Keeping fingers crossed. Mil gracias y un beso y abrazo para ti tambien.
