Ahh, love at first sight!  I really like the sweet purity of this story and  hope that Bella will invite Edward to spend time with her friends soon.  

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for that comment.  I was writing a chapter when I read this so I incorporated more of everyone else. Let me know what you think.

Edward does think of everything!  I've really enjoyed this story and the music.  Happily waiting t=for the next chapter and  brunch with the aunt and uncle.

Author's Response: He's annoying perfect sometimes.  I'm glad that you are enjoying the music too, it's in my dreams now I've listened to it so much trying to figure out the perfect song for every chapter.

Dammit!  I knew it was to good to be true!  I really, really hate when Tanya shows up! But I really, really like this story!  As I sigh and smile I think to myself bring it on!  

Author's Response: Hehe...that Tanya seems to bring ou t the hate in people.  I'll try to not make it too bad.

That Tayna is a schemer.  I don't like her!  I don't trust her!  Oh, superstarrh, it's going to get very ugly isn't it?

Author's Response: LOL....such hate for Tanya, not that I blame anyone.  Hopefully not too ugly.

Oh, superstarrh, you have no idea how happy I am that you update quickly!  I am already waiting for the next chapter and I'm not very being very patient about it!  Sorry, I don't mean to be rude and I am ever so thankful for how fast you work but you just kind of left things hanging and frankly, dammit, it's not funny!  Ok, embarrassing as that was, the tirade is over.

I am so happy that Edward went after Bella right away.  Certainly when Bella sees him she will realize that Tanya set the whole thing up.  Please let them be happy!

And about Tanya .... your version is one of the more manipulative and evil Tanya's that I have read!  Do we have to endure much more of her?

I've been meaning to tell you - my son used to work beach service in the summer.  He would often play music for the sun worshippers and found that when he played Jack Johnson his tips were higher.  Before reading each chapter I pop one of his cd's in!

As always I wait patiently - always patiently - for the next update.  Thank you for sharing this story.



Author's Response:

Wow, what a review, thank you so very much.  Updates will be fast and furious from here on out now that we are close to the end.  Yeah, I tried to not make Tanya so evil but I couldn't help it.  I'm so glad that you are enjoying it and hope you like the chapter that was just posted.

 That is pretty cool about your son, I love Jack Johnson and I have listened to him more than I care to admit to while writing this story, my kids have it all memorized. 

Enjoy the rest and let me know what you think!  Thanks again.

Now I'm counting on you to get the two of them back together!

Author's Response: Thank you so much, I'm glad that you enjoyed it so much.  I wanted to make them happy and to show that it all worked out in the end.  Thank you for all the great compliments throughout the story, it really helped to motivate me to keep going, I was truly worried in the beginning there but I had a great time.  thanks.

Oh, limona, this is probably my favorite chapter so far.  I take back every mean/cold/clinical remark I have said in reference to Edward. 

I loved the whole Truth or Dare game.   The questions were fun and I really wanted her to re-ask the Tanya question, I wanted to hear that answer as well!  Most of all I loved that you let us in to his head, the part that wants to protect Bella ... to keep her safe.  He could have so easily taken advantage of her and chose not to and for that he stands very tall in my eyes.  Maybe I am wrong, but I got the feeling that  Emmett did not have a whole lot to do with that ... but rather Edward wants to do right by Bella.

Your Emmett certainly has the personality traits of a government employee in his line of work.  He's very honest, very blunt, very loyal and protective, all the cards and facts on the table, no surprises, no flowers, no sugar coating .... the person you want on your side if you are on Bella's side of the fence, Heaven help you if you are on the other side.  Do you know my brother-in-law?

I am so impressed with this chapter and can't thank you enough for sharing it with us!   

Sandra



Author's Response:

Sandra,

So glad to hear you enjoyed this chapter. She didn't re-ask the Tanya question because she didn't want him to re-ask the Volturi question. It was like an unspoken agreement.

Emmett was not the reason Edward held back. If Emmett was the only thing stopping Edward, Edward would have at least dodged when Emmett took a swing at him a few chapters back. And, I am glad you like Emmett. I like him too. He and Edward are stark contrasts to each other... but they both mean well.

 

Best,

Christina

Wow!  Just found this and already I love it!  Edward is so cold and distant and I look forward to watching him lighten up.  This story is going to be great!

Those two are going to fall in love ... he's already looking at her differently.  I'm wondering how much Esme expects.

Author's Response: Esme is ready for a wedding. Or you mean you wonder how much Esme suspects? I don't think she suspects anything at this point. Edward always kind of did his own thing.

Ix-nay on the the dulled attraction, Edward!  You are going to miss her "more than you'll ever know"!  The more I read of this story the more I LOVE it!  I'm looking forward to the day with Esme and Carlise and to the charity gala. 

Oh, limona, I don't want to be selfish but I do hope you are able to update soon ..... until then I will be waiting patiently.



Author's Response: It will go up in a few days. Thanks so much for reviewing :)

I thought perhaps Bella and Edward were getting closer?  Kissing Tanya? .....Ew!  I was certainly happy when he rescued her from Laurent.  Will Edward call her at all while he is away?  Will Bella continue to get closer to Jake?  These new developments seem to separate them that much more. 

This is a wonderful story!  



Author's Response: Argh. I hate that I can't really answer anything you asked. But your questions all resolve in the next few chapters. Thanks so much for reviewing.

Oh, limona, what is going to happen now?   I can understand why Bella would want a friend but why did she have to tell Jake everything?  Is she not putting the Cullen family in jeapardy for hiding her?  I know that Edward is cold and distant in this story but he doesn't deserve this.  If Jacob feels scorned is he going to blow the cover?  Is Alice justified in calling Edward (I have a brother it would be hard not to!)?  How will Edward take the news?  Questions - questions!  

This story is wonderful!  And I am still pulling for Bella to win Edwards heart!



Author's Response: Lots is going to happen now. That's the short answer. Stay tuned for chapter 8. :)

What the hell is the idea behind an Emmett sized cliffie, the promise of a teaser and a tentative posting date for next weekend after a very suggestive, teasing chapter?  Oh, limona, this was sheer brilliance or pure evil! 

I choked on my diet coke when I read- '"Bella.  It needs to be open  gently."'... '"As he drew up the cork, he paused before drawing it all the way out."'  This whole wine episode was a rather masterful innuendo and I couldn't help but laugh at the brilliance.

The sexual tension that is building between E/B is being transferred to your readers through means of teasers and well chosen words.  

Ah ha, I knew it!  I knew that somewhere along the lines that his cold, clinical demeaner would begin to dissolve.  He doesn't want Jake to have Bella because he wants her for himself!   "Mine" is just a matter of time!

And one more thing, just a thought actually - Bella has to try to make this right by Alice .... but what about Esme?  I am protective as a sister but it is nothing compared to my protective nature as a mother... Of course I do know that this is ff and of very little importance!

I've liked this story from the start but it is so much fun to read that it is fast becoming a favorite! 

So until next weekend I will be waiting patiently!



Author's Response:

Did you really think that was a cliffie? I thought I did good this time, not leaving people as upset as they were after chapter 7.

Glad you liked the wine scene. It was my personal favorite moment of the chapter.

No, Edward doesn't want Jake to have her. Or anyone else either, apparently, since Bella gave him an out and he said No. 

As a mom myself, the Esme thing did not escape me, but A) Edward is more concerned about what his sister thinks than what his mom thinks, and B) if Bella wins over Alice, Alice can do damage control with Esme. Also, I don't think Edward believes Bella can succeed anyway, so it is a moot point to him.

Thanks for reviewing!

Aaaaaaack!  I'm sorry for being so greedy but I wasn't ready for the chapter to be over yet!  And I'm really embarrassed because it was a long chapter.

Love this Rose!  I am so happy that she is helping Bella.

So is Edward seeing Tanya while he is out late?  Sure he has opened his home to Bella and I can understand that it was poor judgement on Bella's part to have Jake in the house yada, yada but, but he's not being fair to her.  He's being cold and clinical not very nice. His staying out late and leaving her by herself is cruel.  If it were me I think I'd be happier in a jail.  It's hard to believe that someone that can do so much for charities and has so little respect for the human soul.  There's a part of me that wants to grab him by the tie and ask him what his problem is.  

Now that Alice and Bella are on the mend will it take ahile for Edward to start coming home at night?  What has happened to Edward that he is so controlling.  Of course Alice is a bit on the spoiled side too.  

Sorry to be all over the place with this review.  I really do enjoy this story.  I just want Edward to be nicer!



Author's Response:

Someone else told me the chapter was too short. I'm glad you saw that it wasn't short at all.

I can't say what Edward was doing, but he gets all of chapter 10 to tell us about it.

Would you really be happier in jail? At least Bella has books and privacy and space to relax in Edward's house.

Thanks for reviewing! And yes, almost everyone wants him to be nicer. I hear that a lot. :)

Oh, limona, how can one not love this story!  Your Edward is breaking down.  In the beginning I saw him as cold and distant and little by little he is warming up. 

The fact that Alice is upset with both Edward and Bella is pretty funny.  Finding that her ever perfect brother is not so perfect in her eyes was somewhat amusing.  Spending time with Rosalie and Emmett and the girls is wonderful.  Little  by little I can see Bella working her way into the heart of the Cullen family. 

I really like how you're slowly bringing Edward and Bella together.  Just enough tension to make it interesting but not so much that I'm screaming at the computer.

 But have I missed something?  Edward is keeping a list of the Volturi?  How does he know them?  Are they watching him?  Certainly they do no suspect?  Oh, and Jake, will he be rehired next chapter?  I can see where that whole incident could cause problems.  If Edward knows about the Volturi and they are watching him they know he has fired Jacob.  Maybe they question Jacob?  Jacob could be giving them information unknowingly?  Especially if he thinks Bella is unsafe with Edward?   Maybe I need to check out the forum!

I had a rather eerie thought while reading - the Volturi find out that Edward is hiding Bella - He begins to transfer money into other accounts - they fake their deaths - they sail off into the sunset never to be seen or heard from again.  No, I'm sure I am watching to many movies again!

In any event, take care of yourself.  In the meantime I will be waiting patiently for the next update. 



Author's Response:

No, no, not a list of Volturi. The names of the Volturi standing trial are not a secret. Edward was researching what businesses they were connected to, to try and get a feel for who might be directly connected to them. The Volturi own a large chunk of the country, after all. Maybe I wasn't clear. It's hard in someone's POV, because they don't need to be clear with themselves about something that is obvious to them. I will try to make a clearer picture when they next come up, since several people are concerned about this.

The Volturi are not watching Edward. They would have no reason to. Jacob is not being interrogated by the Volturi in his absence from the story.

As for your ideas about Bella and Edward faking their deaths and living on some island in the South Pacific... I have spent a lot of time and energy building Edward's extended family. It would be a great big bummer for all involved if Bella and Edward could never go home!

Thanks, as ever, for your thoughtful review.

Oh, limona, I have chills after reading that chapter. Thank you for allowing the whole thing to play out ... a cliffie would have been just plain wrong!   

So now where do they go?  Will the dynamic change after such an intimate moment?   Will he want to be more gentle with her now?  Can he be more relaxed and less clinical with her now?  Will they begin to spend more quality time together?   I guess what I want to know is will they begin to fall in love now?

Thanx for giving us a double chapter.  It was as beautiful and as it was pivitol.

 



Author's Response:

Yes, a cliffie would have been wrong, that's why there was a double chapter. :)

Can't answer your questions now, but the story will in time.

I am happy that Edward is teaching Bella how to swim because it , means they're spending more time together.   But I'm not getting the whole first time together thing ... I guess I wanted it to mean more than it did.  I wish we could have felt more intimacy the next morning....not an imprinting kind of love but something more.  And please know that I am not finding fault as it is obvious that this story is very well thought out and there is a method to your madness and all will be revealed in due time........

When I read your teaser I knew that Emmett was going to be pissed with his brother and I was right!

Maybe Edward is feeling a little something that he is not owning up to in not wanting to let Bella out of his sight while she is being moved around for witness protection business. 

Hot tub or no this is and I am somewhat certain will continue to be one of my all time favorites!  I am so intrigued with this wonderful story.

Author's Response:

Sandra, thanks so much for your thoughtful review.

We really only got a brief peek at Edward because I needed to move the rest of the plot forward. I am going to try and give us more Edward next chapter. The swimming is big... it is Edward reaching out to Bella. I do think the sex was big-- you will see them spending a lot more time together and doing more things together.

By do right by her I mean that he saw her when she was so very scared and he has been able to bring her out and help her feel a little more secure. 

I really wish I could be more articulate.  Just know that little by little I am really coming to appreciate the goodness within Edward.
