Nothin much to tell.  Wife.  Mom.  Daughter. Teacher. Students.  Closet Twilight fan fiction addict who might actually leave her husband if Carlisle were real and single--even though he's a bit old for me.  I try not to date guys over 250, but for him I'd make an exception.

I know Esme's a crazy bitch, but I hate that Carlisle's divorcing her. 

Why did I have to find your excellent story when I should be studying?

Here is the promised outtake, it is un-beta'd so please excuse any mistakes!

Outtake from Chapter 10:
I continued to pick at the sandwich I’d gotten to eat when Edward excused himself to grab a drink to bring upstairs.

If you had told me a month ago that my life would literally been flipped over I would have grabbed Nathan and ran for the hills. As a mom nothing can prepare you for the day your child goes missing. Nor could it prepare me for the day when I’d found out it was the hands of someone close to us.

I was never a fan of Tanya’s, but not for the reason most people would think. After Nathan was born any romantic feelings I had towards Edward had died. I realized then that, at one time I thought he had a lot of the characteristics that I wanted, but in the end it was nothing more than wanting a “happily ever after” ending. I blamed the hormones.

Edward was kind and considerate, but his family almost made me run for the hills on several occasions. I was sure Esme had her reasons for hating me, as deranged as they probably were, but it didn’t matter. I saw Edward for who he was, a man who would never step up against his mother. It was that realization that caused me to break everything off. I was not willing to become “second rate” to anyone for the rest of my life. If that meant being alone then at least I’d come first to me.

When I met Tanya I didn’t really have an opinion of her. She seemed nice although she seemed fake. I monitored her interactions with Nathan for a while, but he seemed to be okay with her and Edward seemed to fall in love with her. It meant “family” functions became less awkward because Esme was too busy kissing Tanya’s ass then telling me I was a gold digger. Funny thing is I had a job, and Tanya didn’t, but I was the gold digger. I internally shrugged. I obviously hadn’t been a good judge of character, but I refused to let that happen again.

Truth be told I was terrified to live with Edward. We had no problem being civil, even friendly, towards each other but really I didn’t know him anymore. I suppose I could use this time to get to know him again, but I didn’t know if he was worth the effort. I’d watched him go up against his family twice in the past twenty four hours, but I didn’t know when the other shoe would fall. He claimed that things were over with Tanya when she wanted to go on vacation, yet I still walk in on....I shook my head. I did not need to visualize that again!

I heard my name being called which broke me from the fog overtaking my thoughts. I looked up to see a woman standing before me. Dark shoulder length hair with a slight girl, way too much make-up, and a strapless silk dress. She was NOT a local for sure.

“Excuse me, are you Bella Swan?” She asked. Her voice was polite, but I didn’t know her.

“Can I help you?”

“I’m Kate Winston, I was wondering if I could talk to you for a few minutes.”

“I’m sorry I don’t talk to the media.”

“Oh I’m not a reporter.”

“Then who are you?”

“I’m Garrett’s wife, Garret Randall.”

My blood ran cold. I knew that name and it belonged to the man I wished death upon. How his wife had the nerve to want to speak to me shocked me. Kate took my silence as a green light to begin talking.

She explained how amazing Garrett was and they had two children together, that it was all Tanya’s fault when they started having an affair he went crazy, and she was pleading with me to lessen the charges. I continued to listen to this woman, who was out of her mind until I found my voice back.

I stood up, my fists white knuckling the table in an attempt not to swing at her.

“You want me to what?!” I screeched whispered.

“They say he’ll go away for twenty years, by then our kids will be in college. As a mother you have to understand how important it is to be there for your children, I’m just asking that you make them let him out after a few years. I don’t want to be a single parent.”

“Your husband,” I spat. “Took my seven year old little boy, stuffed him into a bag, and threw him off a cliff! And you want to talk to me about being a single parent? I almost lost him and you....”

“He’s alive though now, he’s not dead,” She rushed.

Edward chose that moment to walk up. I could tell he was taking accounting of our conversation and immediately took a defense stance in front of me.

I wasn’t sure how I felt about that, but in the moment, I was only thankful I would go to jail for killing her. The nerve of this woman.

I was so wrapped up in my own thoughts I completely missed my dad showing up and escorting Kate away.

When Edward still hadn’t let go of me in the elevator I wanted to push away, but he was the only thing keeping me from hunting this Kate Winston down.

When we entered Nathan’s room I was reminded of why I was here. My baby was laying in that bed and I needed to get a grip for when he woke up.

The moment I chose to sit down and grab his hand his eyes flew open.

Relieve spread through me as I told him hi.

When he leaned up towards me to tell me his first recount of his abduction I went numb.

Up until that point it was all speculation, strong speculation, but still speculation.

Now we knew without a doubt it was Tanya.

And I knew, without a doubt, I would kill her the next time I saw her.

Ooooh, moving in together for Nathan's sake.  I'm sure it'll be good for more than just Nathan. :o)

I should be working on classwork in preparation for finals, but I can't stop reading.

Here is the promised letter:

Edward~

First let me start by saying I miss you. Being apart from you is making my
heart break everyday, but I have to stay away, at least until the truth is
out. I know the cops came looking for
me, but I swear to you I didn't do this. I don't know who has set me up, but I
swear it wasn't me. Honestly, if I had to guess, I'd say Bella is behind all
of this. She's so starved for attention she'd kill her own child to get it,
maybe you could refer to someone for that. You shouldn't listen to anything
Garrett has to say, first he confesses and now says it's my fault. It wasn't
me!

I've been away getting more evidence together and once I can prove my
innocence we can be together again. We can start that family you always wanted
to have together.

I love you Edward and I hope you're missing me as much as I'm missing you!

Yours forever, until death do us part, wait for me Edward,
Tanya

Go Bella!  I normally love Esme, but your Esme deserved the verbal bitchslap.

Poor Edward.  I guess he deserves some hate from Bella, but I feel terrible for him.

I loved the Bella/Tanya smackdown--I only wish Bella'd gotten in a few more blows before they pulled her off.

YAY that they found Nathan!

Loathing?  Hmmm.  I wasn't expecting that.  I can't wait to see what burr is under Edward's saddle.

"Isabella Swan will not get to me."  It sounds like that train's already left the station.  Great backstory.  I'm hooked on your story already!

Edward needs a kick in the pants--and some manners.  I know he's hurting and confused, but he should act nicer.

Poor confused Edward.  He might as well give up--Bella's already got him tied in knots.

Poor Edward, thinking he has to be strong and invincible.  Really excellent chapter!  I should be doing so many other things, but here I am reading your story.  I just can't stop. :o)

Alice is so smart; she knew just what to do with our Edward. I'm glad he's pulled his head out of his behind.  And yay for the kitty in the tree--he may have been the spark that will start the fire between Edward and Bella.  Fun!!

I loved the way the plot moved forward in this chapter.  Oh, and even though I wanted somebody to drown Mike, a hiney-whippin' and getting fired works too. :o)

Getting stuck at the top freaks me out too.  I really enjoy this story, so the outtakes are a special treat.
