Life As I Know It by ginger1983 Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 99]
Summary:

*THIS STORY WAS PREVIOUSLY NAMED "BOILER UP."*

My beautiful banner was made by Mehek18 for www.thetwilightawards.com. THANKS GIRL!!! I LOVE IT!!!

 

Leaving the embrassment of her stepfather's secrets being revealed to her small town gossip pool, Bella moves to California to attend UCLA and start fresh.

A family tragedy brings her back to her small-town Indiana home. While attending Purdue, Bella tries to deal with the crap life has thrown her way. Will meeting Edward Cullen help or hinder her progression through life? Have they met before, though? Will he still want her after he knows all her family's secrets?

Rated for language, brief mention of drug use in later chapters, possible lemons in later chapters (i'm working up the courage!), and mention of alternate lifestyles and a slash paring (nothing kinky, promise! If you're into BDSM, this is not a story for you!). Slightly OOC characters...Bella's got more balls in my world.

*** Life As I Know It was featured as an Under The Radar fic at Twilight Awards 2/28/11! Thanks, ladies! ***

why didn't bella's sister or mom call for her birthday? i hope bree doesn't get into too much trouble!



Author's Response: i was wondering if anyone would catch that renee didn't call. great job! that will be answered next chapter. thanks for reading and reviewing! :)

it think that bree is upset that she got caught, not that she was doing anything wrong. will renee blame all this on the fact that bella moved so far away? i mean renee is bree's mom not bella!



Author's Response:

the chapter is fixed now, and is all there. as for renee, she's a flake, and sometimes it's easier to blame othrers for our mistakes, ya know? thanks for reading and reviewing!! :)

that was too funny! i loved bellas attitude about just laughing it off,and not letting anything ruin her mood! im glad that they finally got together. if i were bella i think i would try to make it work with her mom and sister one more time before i just washed my hands of them till they got their heads out of their butts!



Author's Response:

i feel like bella is torturing herself with all of this information! how long will it take for her and edward to get it on?! and what is the deal with tanya?



Author's Response:

Ah, Tanya will be back . . . in all her glory . . . or not. This was a big turning point for E and B. She needed to know the truth behind his infidelity and has to make her decisions based on that. We have a little while to wait for a full lemon, sorry, but things will start to change for them from here on out. 

 

thanks!

i love it! i never wouldve guessed that!! it was perfect!! so good! what does tanya want exactly? and will edward still be there when she wakes up? i think that this situation should tell bella everything she needs to know about working things out!!



Author's Response:

Bella has had a lot of things made clear to her over the last couple of days. She's finally ready to make some decisions. Tanya has her own motivations which will become clear eventually. 

Thanks!

i was hoping that edward and bella would present a united front. and they did! im so glad that they decided to give it an honest chance! bella deserves to be cherished and loved. will tanya keep at it? and will edward figure out where their money is going?



Author's Response:

Thank you for reading and reviewing. They really do still have a long way to go, but it is a good start for them.

i really like it! and what other details could tanya have that edward should tell bella instead of hearing it from that tramp?! and how did she get his card?! what a jerk! i hope that perhaps if edward has to go back to italy, that he'll take bella and they can get it on!! that would be great! i hope that everything turns out ok for them, i can't wait!!!



Author's Response:

I'm glad that you enjoyed it. Tanya, her motivations, and methods are a coming point that I won't spoil for you, yet. Just know that she's pretty crafty when she needs to be. 

 

Thank you for reading and reviewing!

tanya is such a whore!!! i hope that the visit that they have to make isn't too horrible! and who took the pictures!? is tanya following bella? or maybe someone else in the family was watching her for saftey reasons? i can't wait to see what happens next!! i think that edward should feel like crap!



Author's Response:

HE does feel like crap! I can't tell you on the pictures yet. Thank you!

im glad that the family is seeing tanya for who she truely is an not turning a blind eye to bellas suffering! im so sad its getting so close to the end! i wonder if any unexpected surprises will come from their honeymoon?



Author's Response:

Hmm. Tanya has shown what she values and now knows how badly she screwed up. As for surprises, you'll have to wait and see. 

Thank you!

i think that they need to finish getting to know each other and being together. so he just watched her sleep then? and i hope that tanya gets the hnt and backs off!



Author's Response:

They do have a long way to go in terms of getting to know each other. Edward came to bed and went to sleep with Bella--no watching her sleep yet. 

I will say that Tanya is rather clueless, so I wouldn't count on her getting the hint.

Thanks!

grandma was fun! maybe they'll have to invite her out more?



Author's Response:

Yes, I definitely think there are some changes coming with Grandma. Maybe with that relationship improving, Renee's with Bella will too. 

I apologize that it took so long to reply. I've been trying to get the chapters out instead and I got behind. 

 

Thank you!

what in the world does he want with her? is it just a i want what someone else has thing? or is it i want what i can't have? i hope that he doesn't hurt her any further!!



Author's Response:

I'll let James tell you what he wants in the next chapter. How's that! Thank you!

i wonder how james knew that they were headed homw to bellas for christmas? that kinda sounds like stalking to me! i hope he can keep her safe!



Author's Response:

He is stalking her and having her followed constantly. And when he heard that, he followed. 

 

Thank you!

She's really grown a lot stronger over the course of the story, but she's still a woman. LOL! Thank you!

how does renee know about the separate rooms? will renee behave herself during dinner? or will charlie have to punish her?! im glad bella stood up for herself!



Author's Response:

Renee, for all her faults, is observant. She saw the decoration of Bella's room and noted that there was nothing of Edward there. CHarlie punish Renee? That's funny! Thank you!

so, i wonder if they paid tanya to do all this crap to and with edward to get the marriage annuled? im glad that they're getting together and working out their problems! i hope it gets better!



Author's Response:

I love the supposition here. There is definitely something up. Thank you so much and here's a teaser for you:

“No kidding,” Emmett said under his breath but loud enough for all of us to hear. “You all are actually speaking.”

 

“Ha, ha, Emmett,” Edward muttered sarcastically. “The situation is kind of serious, and I, well, we need you to be aware.”

 

Alice’s and Esme’s eyes grew round, and the boys stilled. Rosalie just leaned back in her chair and waited for the explanation.

 

“Before our trip to the Spencers’, someone dropped off an envelope of pictures for me. They were of Bella at a night club, and could have been taken very negatively.”

 

I patted his leg and rolled my eyes, remembering all too well how negatively they had been taken.

 

“I asked Demetri to look into the matter, and it appears that someone close to the Windemere family has been following Bella. This isn’t the first time that James Windemere has attempted to interfere with our marriage, and I am concerned that he is going to escalate his . . . actions.”

 

Emmett gave Edward a look clearly meant to display what he thought of Edward’s accusations. And knowing how Emmett felt about Edward’s own behavior, I was sure that whatever came out of his mouth wasn’t going to be kind. “First of all, what would James do to interfere with your marriage that’s worse that what you managed on your own, and second, why would he care?”

Author's Response:

LOL! Bella's thought about it. Demetri's still at the house though. No one is getting by him! Thank you!
