I'm glad he is taking care of her & she is letting him.  I want to know more about both of their pasts.



Author's Response:

Thank you for reading and reviewing His Cimmerian View.  There have been a few questions regarding Edward and why he is so tainted by women.  More of his back story is coming out, but between having a mother who was mentally ill, who subsequently abandoned him.  The one girl he gave his heart to was only using him for money.  One girl pretends to be his friend to gain access to his friend and for all accounts adoptive brother.  And don’t forget the person he looked to as a mother figure who lied to him and hid the truth of things from him.  When you put all of those things together, it is hard to trust and believe that there is honesty and truth in caring from a female.  I know lots of women who think men are worms because of this or that, which happened, so it should not be so hard to understand how Edward may have this view of women.  Next we have had an overabundance of questions regarding when Edward will find out Bella’s true age.  That will happen, but first we need to build a little more of their friendship together.   I know that many of you are not happy of his time going to Aro’s, but I assure that those times are coming to a close.  It is important we felt in the story and as the story goes to show how he is dealing with his own reactions to Bella.  There will only be a few more explicit scenes from the club, but WE PROMISE he stops going fairly soon.  This is a rather slow burn, but for this to be realistic, in any way, shape, or form it needs to be.  With that said we will not drag it out either.  You will continue to learn more about Edward and Bella, as well as a few of the other characters, but it is all going with the storyline.  There are some great chapters coming up, and for all of you who still have some hate or anger for Edward, I am sure that you soon will find that hate or anger directed in another place.

Chapter 10 Teaser…  Subject to changes during Beta Process.

Carlisle, Jasper, Emmett, and I, all meet up on Saturday for a workout and lunch. The topic moved to Bella, and Emmett was not happy that he was the only one that had not met her yet.  I, well we, explained that she did not like close contact with people and might say things out of the norm.  Of course, this all fell on deaf ears, because his only response was him promising to be on his best behavior. Now, we all love Emmett - most people do - but he is a large hulk of a man.  Emmett is six foot six and must be tipping the scales at close to three hundred pounds.  His biceps are the size of my thighs. He also has a quick mouth, and often says things without thinking. We tried to tell him this, but he didn’t get it.  We all knew that he would end up trying to hug her, or that she would end up saying something and then he would joke about it, but either way, she would end up hurt.  I just couldn’t allow that to happen, not even by one of my best friends.  He pouted the rest of the time we were together, even after Jasper and Carlisle both said she could not meet him yet.  I was a bit worried at the end of lunch when Emmett looked as if he was hatching an evil plan.

I look at my watch, seeing that it’s almost nine-thirty, and I know that Bella is about to walk in.  I have set up the table with some of the supplies I need to help teach her, including alphabet cards.  Since she can already recognize some letters, I know teaching her the alphabet should be pretty simple.  I know the best thing for me to do, is to start at the beginning.  This means that the alphabet song we all loved as a kid, is first. I look to the door as it opens, and see Bella walking in.  She glances at me, and I can see in her eyes that she looks both excited and apprehensive.  I am sure she is a bit nervous about today, so I smile at her. We already decided that we would do an hour and a half on Tuesday mornings, and an hour and a half on Thursday afternoons.

“Bella, hang up your jacket and come over to the table.”  She nods her head and does what I ask. “We will begin with the alphabet.  There are twenty-six letters in the English alphabet; twenty-one are consonants, and five are vowels. I will show both the capital and lower case letters.  Are you ready?” She nods her head before putting her glasses on. She has them sitting at the edge of her nose, which will make her look over the top of them rather than through them. I push them back to sit on her nose correctly. “No looking over them, Bella,” I say, giving her a smile.

I'm interested to see what he finds out next.



Author's Response:

Edward is a bit of a jerk isn’t he?  He also means well and does not want bad things to happen to people, hence why he would run after a purse snatching group of buttheads.  Edward’s health issues will be explained more in the next chapter, and I don’t want to give away too much, but suffice to say that Edward’s stress levels are not helping his issue.  Next chapter there will be a little ‘friendly’ interaction between Isabella and the good professor Masen.  Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Chapter 3 teaser, subject to changes during the beta process…
Fuck my life! I have been here in a hospital room all night, on a heart monitor.  They made me turn off my cell phone.  I was in so much stress; I should have had them call Emmett last night.  I am sure that I am in hot water with them all, for not showing up.  I am waiting for the doctor to come in with my test results.  It felt that I was having a heart attack, or something.  I really hope that was not the case, I mean come on I am only twenty-eight.  I am an overall healthy man.  I exercise and don’t eat a lot of fattening foods.  I mean people my age don’t have heart attacks, do they?

“Good morning Mr. Masen, I am Doctor Hall,” he says holding out his hand for me.

“Good morning,” I say shaking his hand.

“Well I read over your case notes from last night and this morning, how are you feeling now?” his face is giving nothing away.

“I feel a lot better than I did last night, everything has returned to normal.”

He nods his head writing notes on my file in his hands.  “How long have you been getting suffering from heartburn?”  He looks at me questioningly.

“On and off for the past three four months,” I say letting out a breath before talking again, cutting off Dr. Hall.  “Look I don’t mean to be rude, but what happened to me last night?  Did I have a heart attack?  That is how it felt, can’t you just tell me?  I mean really let me know what was happening, and then I will answer all your questions?”

He put down my file and stops writing his notes, as he sits back in his chair.  “I am sorry Mr. Masen I tend to get ahead of myself.  Last night you suffered a rather harsh panic attack,” he says. 

All I am thinking is this guy is off his rocker.  I mean really where did he get his medical degree, Mickey Mouse Club House, or the bubble gum machine?

WOW!  Rose is unbelievable.

I hope Harry gets caught soon



Author's Response:

Well after this chapter how will we ever get better?  I hope that you trust me when I say, it will!  Many of you want Aro to get his hands on Uncle Harry before the police do.  I will not say who gets to Uncle Harry first; because well that would just ruin the surprise, but I will say this... his capture is already written, so feel free to speculate.  There are some seriously some great chapters coming up, but Nikky says I need to warn you all that some of them are rather drama and angst filled.  There also may or may not be a few cliffhangers in the near future, oh heck who am I kidding the next two chapters are rather cliffy in nature.  The next chapter has a big surprise within and MOST of you may be very shocked.  Nikky, Jess, and a few others who have already read the chapter during BETA processing seem to think that the next chapter may generate a lot more reviews.  We may even get some from people who have not reviewed before now, because it is quite a twist.   There is your warning.  Nikky and I have been called diabolical for the plot twist that is coming, so we sure hope you all like it.  I will say this out of all the readers and reviewers we have, only one time has someone guessed a good portion of the plot and got it right.  We of course didn’t tell them, because well then they would know it would ruin the story telling process.   We had a few question about Sienna’s ability to place a phone call since she is deaf.  Deaf people can make phone calls using a Telecommunication Device for the Deaf (TDD).  Special telephone services have been developed to carry the TDD functionality even further. In certain countries there are systems in place so that a deaf person can communicate with a hearing person on an ordinary voice phone using a human relay operator. There are also "carry-over" services, enabling people who can hear but cannot speak ("hearing carry-over," a.k.a. "HCO"), or people who cannot hear but are able to speak ("voice carry-over," a.k.a. "VCO") to use the telephone.  Couple of questions came about Charlotte’s nick-name of Chas, in our story Charlotte was the youngest raised by her father among her several brothers and she was quite the tomboy growing up.  Char is a girlie name and therefore her brothers tagged her with Chas, because it is manlier.  Thanks for reading and reviewing our story, we are proud of it, and are grateful to our loyal readers.  If you have more questions or want to discuss some of the story line, feel free to join the group on Facebook you can find us by searching for: TeamAllTwilight & AndTAT FanFiction.  Kasi (&Nikky)

Chapter 25 Teaser:
“Pajama day is when you stay in your pajamas all day and eat lots of bad stuff, watch movies, and play games all day long.”  Seth and Leah nod their heads at me and Bella gives me a small half nod with her smile.  “Okay then, pajama day it is in our house.  I just need to make a few phone calls. Why don’t you all get your robes and slippers on, and I’ll meet you for breakfast as soon as I am done.”  Seth and Leah hug me before walking out of the bathroom to get their slippers and robes.

After they leave the room, I look to see Bella biting her lip, and I know she’s worrying about something.  “I’m sorry that she wet the bed. She’s never done that before.”

I walk to Bella, wrapping my arms around her. “Baby, its okay. She’s upset, and her body is reacting to that, so don’t worry about it.” I kiss her head and push her hair out of her face.  I hiss as I see the large bruises that go all the way up one side of her face.  “Baby, how are you feeling? Are you in pain?”

She shrugs her shoulders and tries to give me a smile.  “I’m not sure. I...”  She stops and rubs her head.  “I feel like I failed them.  He hurt Seth, and I should’ve been able to protect him better.  I’m upset that it was Uncle Harry that broke into our apartment the other time.  I don’t understand why he did that, or what he was looking for.  How could he do that to Seth and Leah?  I mean, I know that he doesn’t really like me much, but they’re his sister’s children.  I thought he would love them.”

Edward did very well.  I think I like Charlotte!  Why does Alice feel compelled to set Edward up?



Author's Response:

Thank you for reading and reviewing His Cimmerian View.  Alice is a very interfeering person, and neither her or Rose will be very redeeming in the near future.  We know that the more the story develops the more we all want Edward to just post haste stop going to Aro’s club.  I wanted to give a clear run down on the girls that he sees there, so that we can keep things straight.  Edwards’s girls at Aro’s:  Sally: sex addict 27 tall she about 5ft 8 red shoulder length hair thin and tall. Likes roll play.  Irina: 6ft tall slender and Blond Hair to her cheek bones like rough sex and anal sex. 29 years old.  Carmen: 5ft 6 long black hair enjoys being controlled by men, average weight and size. Likes BDSM and being restrained.  Maria:  5’5 180 pounds curvy and thicker than other girls.  Sandy blonde hair, cute features and very large breasts.  More relaxed and sensual.  Edward only sees her maybe once a month, sometimes longer than that between visits.  He controls her too, but it is all about sensual and erotic pleasure with her than it is about rough and controlling hard core sex.  Some question if he chose Maria the last time and more often, because she reminded him of Bella.  Truth be known Carmen would be the one who resembles Bella the most.  He is not with Maria to pretend she is Bella, but because from Maria he gets the softer more sensual erotic side of sex.  Edward had made the decision a long time ago to make himself this untouchable person, and when it came to the girls most of the time he went with the hard core domination side of the act.  I can’t say that Edward’s visits to the club will cease right away, but I do assure you that soon our professor with the extremely dark view of all women will soon realize that he just can’t do it anymore.  He may be smart and he may be a lot of things, but sometimes when you shut yourself off, it’s hard to wake up those pieces of yourself.  I hope that this helps a little in the explanation of Edward and his tainted views.  I will tell you this, I just got done with my part on a chapter where he comes clean with Bella about what he did when he spent time at the club, and telling the truth can be quite cleansing.

Thanks, Kasi (&Nikky)

 

 

Chapter 9 Teaser… Subject to changes during BETA process.

“Mr. Masen, I don’t mean to be rude, but where are we going? Do you need me to work at your house today?”

I shake my head as we keep walking.  “No Isabella, as you know all my employees have to have a medical check.  I am accompanying you to yours.”  We stop walking when we arrive at the bus stop. I look at Isabella who is looking upset.

“Mr. Masen, I didn’t bring any money with me.  I can’t afford to have a medical check, I am sorry.” I look down at her and frown.  There is something in her expression that tells me that it’s not just money she is worried about. I look up seeing the bus coming to a stop beside us.

We both get on, but this time I lead her to the seats at the back.  I motion for her to sit and I sit next to her, leaving a little room between us. “Isabella, I set up a medical plan for each of my staff including you. Your medical is a part of that so you don’t have to worry about payment, it has already been covered.” I am not really lying, more like stretching the truth a little. “I know that you don’t like people too close to you, for that reason I am taking you to see a dear friend of mine.” I smile thinking about how to explain Carlisle. “His name is Carlisle, and he is much more than a friend to me.  I guess you could say that he is like a father figure. He is a very compassionate man, and he has an amazing ability to relax people. He will not hurt you. I would never allow him, or anyone to hurt you.” I didn’t really mean for what I said at the end to come out, but as I looked into her eyes it just came out.  She looked me right in the eye for much longer then she usually does.  I watch her reaction and notice her bite her lip, as she nods her head.

“Will you stay with me, the whole time?”  She asks, as her eyes fall to the floor. 

Without meaning to, my hand moves to the underside of her chin.  I feel small sparks on the tips of my fingers as I keep my fingers against her skin.  These are those same comforting sparks I felt the night of my panic attack, I dismiss it.  I slowly tilt her chin up, making her look at me again. “I will stay with you, if that is what you want.  This is your choice Isabella.  I know that I have been ordering you around a lot, but this time it is your complete choice and decision.  If you wish for me to stay in the room with you, then I will.  If you want me to leave, then I will.  This is all about you, and what you want.” 

She keeps looking at me and I could feel her shaking a little, but she never pulls her face away from my hand.  “I would like you to stay in the room please, Mr. Masen.” I nod my head letting her face go.

Hmm.  I want details on what happened 5 years ago.  Bella is the cleaning lady, no?



Author's Response:

Thank you for reading and reviewing and beign the first review that Nikky and I received here at Twilighted.  There is a lot of information yet to come, but you will learn it all with Edward.  This story is told in his pov, because it is his cimemrian view.  Bella is the cleaning lady.  You will learn a lot about both of them over several chapters, all while the story unfolds.  There will be about 30-35 chapters when the whole story is told, you will know all of Bella's back story much before that, same with Edward.  Be prepared to dislike, or even be angry at Edward around chapter 5.  However chapter 6 is his turning point, especially concerning Isabella.   Here is the teaser you were promised for chapter 2, which is subject to change at validation.  Thanks again, for reading and reviewing.  Kasi (&Nikky)

Chapter 2 teaser:

I am in my office grading papers when the cleaning girl comes, she doesn’t notice me as she continues to clean.  She comes near me, still not noticing me, and as she goes to move my chair she yelps and realizes that I am sitting in it.  She stares at me in surprise.

“Professor Masen, I am. . .” she stops placing her hand on her head.  I watch as she closes her eyes and takes a deep breath.  “Professor, I am sorry.  I did not know that you were here.  I can just go, I am sorry,” she says picking up her things and leaving quickly. I shake my head and continue to mark my last page.

I leave my office, noticing that the cleaning girl is now doing the classroom; she looks up at me and turns red.  She mouths the word ‘sorry’ again before going back to her work.  As I put on my jacket, I hear a bang and the cleaning girl yelps again, but this time in pain.  I look over to her to see that she has tried to use the socket that has been broken and needs to be fixed.

Wow.  Edward has really been jumping to conclusions regarding Bella.  I'm glad of the way he took care of Gina.  I' also glad to see that Aro is protective of Bella.



Author's Response:

Thank you for reading and reviewing our story.  Nikky and I are very proud of this story and it takes a lot to write things sometimes that even upset us.  We really needed to show just how darkly tainted Edward is, and unfortunately right now many of you hate him.  I know it will take a lot for you to relinquish those hatred feelings, but we hope that we are great enough writers and story tellers to achieve making you like him again.  We know it is always easier to burn a bridge than it is to rebuild it, but we promise to put forth the effort in doing so.  We want to thank you in advance for your votes, support, rec’s, and for just being on this twisted journey with us.  This story will be somewhere around 30 chapters when all is done and said.  We hope that you continue to read and review and share with us your thoughts.  From the bottom of our hearts, and to the moon and beyond... Thank you.

Chapter 6 Teaser… All Subject to change during the beta process…
The shitting feeling is still there, and I have no idea what the fuck I can do to get rid of it.  I head over to Jasper’s office hoping to see him.

“Jasper says that you can go in now.” I look at the woman speaking, and I give her a curt nod as I head into his office. “Edward,” I look at him and he stops talking, and tilts his head to the side.  “Okay, what is going on, what happened?” He asks as he waves at me to sit.  I sit down on the seat across from him and rub my face.  I sigh unsure where to start, so I jump up and start to pace the floor.

“I screwed up, and I mean I really screwed up this time.  Jazz, I fucking hurt her, and I mean really fucking hurt her.  I don’t know how to fix it.  How I can get her to forgive me for what I have done?  I mean, fuck I’ll be lucky if she even speaks to me again.  Well really I know she will because she, fuck, I don’t want to say she is weak, but if I talk to her she will reply. How do I make right Jazz, without putting myself out there?  I don’t want to get hurt again, I could with her and I can’t go through that again.  Fuck, but I don’t think she do that, to anyone really.  She’s not made that way, but I have really gone and hurt her bad.  I never gave her a chance, I was still. . . no, I am to fucking scared.  In this case I think I made a new friend, but the dream. . . and I thought she stabbed me in the back like all the others.  I see her face in my dreams, the last two nights have been worse than all the rest.  I can see how much I hurt her, and the bad thing is she did nothing to warrant my anger.  All she did was fucking help me, time after time.  So many times, and she has been so hurt before and I know it’s been bad.  I can see it clearly in her eyes, the pain and the fear.  What if I push it what if she can never let anyone in ever again because what I did.”  I am still pacing and pulling my hair, I am so upset.  “Fuck Jazz I was a real fucking prick, and complete asshole to her.  Tell me what I can do?  Please I need to fix this, tell me how I can fix it please?”  I beg him as I feel my breathing speed up.  Jasper who was still sitting in his chair looks at me and suddenly comes out of his trance, as I feel the cold sweats start.  “Please Jazz you need to tell me how to fix this.”

Loved the outcome.

 

My condolences about your Mother,  I lost mine earlier this year, so I know a little of what you must be going through



Author's Response:

WOW...the responses are so awesome that Nikky and I are both giddy.  There haven’t been many questions asked, so I am going to answer a few non questions I noticed.  Bella was never kidnapped by Sue and Charlie.  Charlie Swan is Bella’s biological father, and Bella was sent to live with him after her mother died of cancer.  Aro honestly never knew of Bella’s real age, he had suspicions that she was not raised correctly and was acting younger than the 18 he thought her to be, because of the inept social skills.  Zafrina did not know either, but again had those same social skill thoughts that her son had.  We in no way were bashing DCFS or DHS or any other social workers, by saying that the kids would be taken by the state.  If anyone had turned Sue in for abandoning the kids the almost 6 years ago now she has been gone, the kids would have become wards of the state, because at 13 no state official or judge would have deemed Bella capable of fully caring for 2 yr old twins alone.  Just want to say that we both believe that it takes a special kind of person to be a social worker, and we both give those of you who are in the field of social work a round of applause because the things you have to see and or deal with can’t always be fun.  I have to say that the wonderful response to this story is more than either Nikky or myself could have hoped for, and we owe that all to you the readers.  THANK YOU!  If there is any questions or discussions you would like to have or read about past discussions, feel free to join us at TeamAllTwilight & AndTAT Fan Fiction on Facebook.  Thank you for your kind words of our loss, and I am sorry for your own loss as well.  Kasi (& Nikky)

Teaser for Chapter 19: The Legal Side of Things.  Subjected to changes during beta process.

I dropped Bella of at Seth and Leah’s school. Before leaving her, I told her I would pick her up from the college when she got off.  It was so fucking hard to leave her; I just wanted to stay with her forever.  I knew the minute she was away from me, my old doubts would come back.  I knew that I had to talk with Jasper about her upbringing.  It’s that thought that makes me leave, even though I want to wait with her, take them home and stay with them. I am really at a loss for what I should do.  What can I do?  What do I do?  How do I help her?  How can someone so pure and good, come from people so evil?  The questions are killing me, but I know one thing for certain: if that bitch doesn’t stay the fuck away on her own, I will make her.  That sorry excuse of a parent will never get her hands on my Bella, Seth, or Leah again.  I will protect them with my very last breath, and deplete every cent I have, if need be.

I sit at my piano and just start playing.  I let the music guide me, keeping Bella in my thoughts as a play.  I let out all the feelings I have been denying myself. I haven’t been at it long before I find myself playing ‘Angel Eyes’ by The Jeff Healey Band, and I begin to sing along with my playing.

Girl, you're looking, fine tonight,

and every guy has got you in his sights.

What you're doing, with a clown like me,

is surely one of life's little, mysteries

 

So tonight I'll ask the stars above,

"How did I ever win your love?"

What did I do?

What did I say,

to turn your angel eyes my way?

Author's Response:

Thanks for reading and reviewing His Cimmerian View.  I am very sorry for the lateness of getting this review reply to you.  I always write them out and Nikky sends them to everyone on FFN and I send them out to everyone on TWCS and Twilighted.  With the move, I am without internet, so needless to say we got a bit of a delay.  We are hoping that the delay will not cause an issue in the normal posting, however we may run late getting chapters 33, 34 and 35 posted.  This has put me behind by more than a week, so I hope you all are understanding in regards to the situation.  The reviews have been wonderful, and Nikky tells me that there haven’t been a lot of questions.  The next chapter will be loved and hated, but trust in the fact that Jane has a plan for Sue.  Thanks for being such loyal readers, we love and appreciate every wonderful review and comment you all leave us.  HUGS!  Kasi (&Nikky)

 

Teaser for 32 subject to changes during beta process

“What do you want Pet?” Sue sneers out.

Bella look at her, and I nod my head in encouragement.  “I want to know why?  Why you didn’t love them?”

Sue shakes her head.  “That’s easy, because they were meant to be mine and Charlie’s, but instead they had to come out being HIS.  Every time I looked at them, all I saw was that stupid fucker.”

Bella looks at her shaking her head.  “Well I was Charlie’s child and you didn’t love me.”

Sue laughs sarcastically, and she shows her teeth as she makes a face.  “NO, you are right about that.  I don’t love you, I never have and I never will.  I wanted something that was mine and Charlie’s, I deserved that.  What I didn’t deserve was for your whore of a mother to intentionally get pregnant to try and steal my man from me.”

I chuckle out loud at Sue’s delusional attitude, and Sue growls at me.

“There are only two people I love in this world that is Charlie and Harry and you took both away from me,” Sue says caustically as she turns her glare at Bella.

“I want to know what you were planning to do with Seth, and the baby that belonged to Tanya, what was your plans?”

Sue laughs at Bella’s question in her evil sarcastic way.  “You really want to know?  Well I’ll tell you,” she says with a now huge happy smile.

Very good chapter.  I'm glad Edward offered her a job.



Author's Response:

Thank you for reading and reviewing His Cimmerian View.
This story is not always easy to write, just as parts are not easy to read.  Edward does not know yet of course, but it is very true Isabella cannot read nor write.  She has never attended school.  Bella was never allowed to be a child, or experience a normal childhood, in any way, shape, or form.  Bella has nothing more than a glorified slave all of her life since her birth mother passed away.  We don’t want to give away more of her story than that, but feel free to keep asking your questions and we will continue to answer what we can.  Edward does have a long road yet to travel, and part of that is to get him-self healed enough so that he can love someone and trust someone.  Edward’s view is very tainted and with great reason, there is much more to learn about him.  He will continue to improve, but he will have his moments.  Keep in mind as of right now, Isabella has not lied to him, but she has withheld very important information.  She doesn’t correct him on her age, because she fears his reaction.

Here is the teaser for chapter 7…Subject to change during BETA process as always.

I have written out everything, when I look at my watch seeing that it’s ten after ten.  I know that being on time is something she is normally good at.  I rub my face, fuck maybe she changed her mind about the job, or she just lied to me just like every other fucking woman I’ve ever known.

Or maybe you scared her, and she said yes to the job thinking that you wouldn’t let her leave the room unless she agreed.

Knock. Knock.

Thank god, she is here finally.  “Come in Isabella,” I say to the closed door.  The door opens, but it’s Taylor who is standing there. 

I frown at him.  “Hello, I see you beat me here,” he says smiling at me.  I wave at him to come in, but I am still frowning.  “I take it I am not who you’re waiting for?”

I shake my head.  “I was expecting someone, but I don’t think she is coming.”  I sigh, and throw my pen on the desk.

“Small pale girl, brown hair, looks a little lost?” I look at him, and nod my head.  “I think she is standing outside,” he says motioning his thumb toward the door.  I move toward the door, and Taylor stops me.  “Here, take this; it’s really coming down out there.”  He offers me his umbrella and chuckles as I take it and head out of the office.

I head to the front, and see Isabella standing outside in front of the window in the rain.  I open the door.  “Isabella,” I call to her standing in the door way, she turns and looks at me. I wave at her to come in.  “How long have you been standing outside, and why didn’t you come in the restaurant when you got here?”

She walks up to me, clearly worrying I am mad by the look on her face.  “I thought that…you said to meet you outside.  Didn’t you, never mind, I am so sorry…sorry.”

Looking at her, I see that she’s drenched to the skin.  The jacket she is wearing is paper thin, and clearly very old and well used.  I know that she been outside a long time.  I close my eyes, pinching the bridge of my nose.  “I am sorry I meant for you to come in, if I was not out here.”  She walks through the door; I know that she needs to get out of her wet clothes.

Good chapter.  I wonder how their kids will react.



Author's Response:

The kids will react, trust. Just not yet. :)

OK!  Can't wait for officer Leah to interrogate the good Dr

She's definitely going to interrogate him. *giggles*

Poor Edward!  I hope his mistaken text doesn't scar him for life!!



Author's Response:

Scar him for life? Naw. But it will definitely scar him at least for a while. Bella is magic, though, and I bet she can get his mind onto other... things. *wink*

Uh Oh.  I get the feeling Leah & Seth won't be as agreeable as Alice



Author's Response:

Reserve judgment for a chapter or two... all will be revealed. It's not that they're anti-Edward, they're just protective. You'll see. :)

Thank you so much for reading.

Very interesting.  I want to know more of Bella's story.  I'd also love an EPOV

 
Summary:

Two men, one younger and one older, find themselves sitting on a bench at the San Antonio River Walk.  They spend some time talking about the one thing they both have in common at the time…they’re both waiting on a woman.  As the older man explains to the younger man the reason why he doesn’t mind it so much, they find out they have a lot more in common than either would have imagined.

Great conversation with Mom.  Is there something wrong with the upload?  The chapter ended with the word He'd, some blank lines, a string of H's and more blank lines.  Is that intentional?

This is the first fic where I actually like James.

 

I'm hoping Bella had some friends at the Thai place who called her immediately &* gave her a play by play. & I hope it's Bella at the door now

Interesting to see a James that may actually be a decent guy.



Author's Response:

Yeah, he is the rock for Edward in this story. There is more of him coming up and he's still sane. LOL.

Thank you so much for reading and posting a review!

I must say having a James & Victoria that are friendly is a welcome change.  I'm glad James got Edward to admit it to himself.  I hope he'll admit it to Bella.

 

Good luck with your gig

Bella Swan – paid assassin – never missed a target until Edward Masen became one.


Excerpt:

"Isabella?"


My heart throbbed, my breath whooshed out and my mouth went dry when I heard his voice. "Eh- Edward." Seattle rain pounded on the striped awning where I had been steeling myself for this hit.


He raked a hand through his short, copper-blond hair. "You can't be here," he rasped.


"But, Edward," I said, turning to face him fully, pouting just like I'd rehearsed. It was an expression that had utterly distracted other targets and I was counting on it working on him. "I heard you were here and, and it's been a long time."

Sorry this isn't going further.  It has potential



Author's Response:

Good morning!

It does indeed. Exploring the mind of a sniper/paid hitman is intriguing (yes, really - I've studied serial killers, too) but I'm not going to do that for this story.  :)  

Thank you so much for reading!
