What I Wished For by thimbles Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 290]
Summary:





Photobucket

Bella and Jacob married young, and their life together has been much more of a challenge than Bella had anticipated. She’s battling depression and he’s increasingly frustrated that his wife is no longer the same girl he married. Bella is able to find brief moments of peace and happiness in the music she surrounds herself with. She finds particular joy in the raw and powerful music of Edward Cullen, and when she takes the opportunity to see him perform live, the pair strike up an instant friendship.

As Edward and Bella become closer, it throws her struggles in her marriage to Jacob into sharp relief, and Bella begins to daydream about being romantically involved with Edward.

Great chapter.  Good for Bella that she got the implant.  I'm glad I suppose that they made it through dinner without any casualties.

I really hope Bella gets the guts to leave Jake.  I wonder if he feels any jealousy now?



Author's Response: One small step in the right direction for Bella, let's hope she can keep moving forward, yeah? Thanks for reading and reviewing. Shell xx

She really needs to leave jake.  Embry was so sweet.  Can't wait for E & B to talk



Author's Response: Thanks for the review. E&B's conversation will be up soon - hope you enjoy it!

Great conversation.  Can we get rid of Jake now?



Author's Response: Lol, from the outside we see the need to dump his nasty arse, but Bella will need some time. She needs, perhaps, to make a good male friend who treats her with respect and care, so she can contrast it with her marriage, which is supposed to be a deeper relationship, yeah? Thanks for reading and reviewing! Shell x

WOW!  Great chapter. I'm glad Eleaza gave her the questions.



Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Hopefully it was the challenge she needed to see things with a bit more clarity .... Shell xx

YES!!! I'm so glad she left him!  I am so proud of her!

I'm eager to learn what happens next.



Author's Response: Thank you for your support of Bella - I'm so blown away by the love people have for her. Next chapter's in the queue, I couldn't leave you all hanging too long xx

I can appreciate how difficult this must have been to write.  I don't understand where Jacob is coming from.  If he learned this behavior from Billy it's no wonder Jacob's mom left.



Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing. I'd guess with Jacob it's at least partly learned behaviour; which of course, never excuses it. Shell xx

ARGH!!! That was so hard to read!  Tanya needs to be slapped.



Author's Response:

I'm sorry! Edward's back next chapter - does that help?

And Tanya ... let's just say I have plans for her ;)

Just rereading the prologue.  Someone, & I don't know if it should be Edward needs to tell Bella her wishes aren't that powerful.. After all, how many times did she wish Jake would treat her differently and none of those came true.



Author's Response:

Great point. Shell xx

Good chapter.  I'm glad B is continuing to see Dr Denali.  I hope she continues over the next 6 months



Author's Response:

She will; I'm not going to compromise her like that, it would feel wrong.

 

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Jake didn't seem to comment on the piercing.  I'd love to see an outing with Alice, Jasper, Jake & Izzy.


That said, I can't wait to meet Edward



Author's Response: Yes, you'd think he'd have something to say about it, right? And you're right, the dynamic between Izzy and Jake when there is an audience will be important. I'm excited for Edward to make an appearance also, next chapter is about halfway done. Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!! Shell xx

This is such a wonderful story.  So sad it has come to an end.  I suppose I'm a little interested in what became of Billy after Charlie's talk with Jared.



Author's Response:

Aww, thank you. The way I see it, he's a bitter, lonely old man who has lost the respect of his family and the whole community. Sadly, some people are too hardened to admit their wrongs and seek forgiveness :(

I appreciate your reviews, so much.

Yes this is a terrible place to stop.  As long as you update soon, it's ok :)

I'm glad Alice can see right through Jacob and that Izzy is still friends with her.



Author's Response: Next chapter is already in the queue ;) Thanks for the review. Shell xx

Loved the chapter.  I especially loved how Edward turned down "Tiffany". Loved the parallel with Jake turning down Claire.  Edward is so much better



Author's Response:

Yeah, I wanted to draw that parallel; though Jacob didn't actually cheat, Edward certainly handled being propositioned very differently.

Thanks for reading and reviewing.
