Declarations and intentions have been laid out. Edward admitted why he slipped back into old habits. Fear of losing Bella and never fitting into her life again. Bella said children would need time, but she wants him. At least this time when they made love they weren't interrupted by Renee and all her drama. Thank goodness for Emmett and Rosalie giving them the alone time they both need to make this long distance romance a chance.

What a keeper, drops everything to be there for her. Can understand JJ 's shock of a strange man to show up and then be holding is mom. The situation with Leah is a terrifying one. I remember a time with my youngest, we were at Universal Studios of all places. My mom went with us, my husband, myself, and other two children had ridden Jurassic ride. When we got off my mom said she couldn't fnd her. Katie was with her in the shop then gone. We found her on the walkway watching the cars from the ride. But with all those people and huge area to cover my heart stopped. Those thoughts of killing them go through your mind, but hugging when you find them is soooo much better.



Author's Response:

Yes, exactly! Like I said, my "Leah" was only missing for an hour, and the situation is slightly different, but for that entire hour your heart doesn't beat and you are going between wanting to kill them and wanting to hug them. Also, I think alot depends on the situation...were they truely lost or did they run away on purpose...

JJ' s reaction is very normal especially since Jacob's death, he's been kinda of the man of the house. He's resentful of anyone taking is dad's place. Any man would get the same treatment. He'll get used to it with time especially when he sees his mom happy.  Great story he told Leah will help her realize that she is always loved no matter what.



Author's Response:

Thanks! Unfortunately, JJ is at the age where he's going to have a harder time accepting anyone. Thanks for reading:)

What the heck is going on with Edward. Not answering his phone or emails. Is he spending too,much time with Tanya? Is he ill? In the hospital? He has been waiting all this time to have Bella in his life now it's like he is pulling away. Good conversation between Bella and JJ. She needed to express those things to her. He needs to get used to the idea that his mother would be dating and having serious relationships with men since the death of his father. All I can say is Edward better have a very good reason for backing down,the communication between himself and Bella. It had better not be because he's dating the bimbo from the plane.

Clearing the air between them after all these years. Admitting their feelings at the time, now who knows if they'll admit to still having those feelings for the other.



Author's Response:

We'll see what happens in the next chapter...only one week away! Thanks for reading!

Felt for Bella in her marriage. Sounds like Jacob didn't really want to be there. Loved the kids, but quit work and burdened the family financially for quite a while. Bella had most of the responsibility to support their family. Edward would never have treated her so badly. Liked their plans for courtship in their lives. Nice way to spend their time before Bella's return flight.

Not. The ending of their evening I'd envisioned, but completely understand Bella's needs to wait. Edward is right after 13 years what's one more year or less. Looking forward to their digitally communication courtship.



Author's Response:

I know, there were a lot of people that were hoping for a more citrusy ending ;) however, i really felt like this was the only way it would work for now. Thanks for reading!

Edward really went on a bender. Wonder what Tonya gave him that he can't recall what he had done. Very happy he didn't move physically on Tonya. Was surprised that he hung out with her so much especially with the hard partying. He broke away once and got away from that scene. Now he'll have to break away again. Esme got Bella to declare her intentions. Hoping Edward will agree. I always thought a year was way to long for her to start having a life again.

So glad you two are back at storytelling again. Love how this story starts out with a bang and is continuing in the same vein. Edward as a Marshall protecting Marie and Mary along with Jasper. Looking forward to the wild ride of them under Witness Protection.

I have to commend Edward in his strength of resisting his attraction to Bella. Unlike Jasper who has given in fully to his. Which makes his objectivity diminished. Edward really doesn't want to work with anyone else, but Jasper really needs to get his head back to protection rather than physical pleasure and release. This is life and death here not a garden party. Alice isn't much better abandoning her sister in her time of need. She knows her better than anyone else, but her selfish preoccupation with Jasper has led an outsider, Edward to observe Bella's distress.

Exciting chapter with being discovered. Boy did Uncle Al sure get mad and jump all over Peter. Has to protect his family. It's also a chapter we realize Edward is vulnerable to only to Bella, but his past. He's can be hurt physically and was emotionally as well. Dying to know the story behind the Celtic Knot.

Mr Rolex seemed to be extra interested in the witnesses and their new US Marshall's. Ben thinks has a leak, Riley appears to be a prime candidate. On the run again jut after only a few hours of rest or the girls. Can't wait until Sunday on the next installment.

Very exciting chapter in all ways. Gun firing and racing through the streets with bullets flying. Steven Seagal type action. Can't wait for hand to hand combat. Bella saving Edward by yelling for him to get down and then shooting at the man coming through the front door. Great scene in the jet bedroom, holding and comforting, then dynamite kiss between Edward and Bella finally. Waiting on bated breath for the next chapter on Sunday. Thanks for the bonus mid-week chapter.

Finally somewhere the girls can stop to take a breath and some down time. Appears both the girls are interested in their guards. Also the guys have noticed and admired them. Opens up a lot of possibilities. Volturi out on the streets isn't a good sign, expected, but not good. Waiting on bated breath for next week's installment.

Bella's breakdown about her hone two fold of devastation. One losing herself and sister's memories with late family photos. Secondly her phone is how they are losing their identities and the reason they ave to leave everything behind.nthat would b hard to handle all the guilt of it being Marie/Bella's fault. Edward was pretty sweet to give them access for as long as they are still hiding. It's almost like losing her parents and grandmother all over again. Leaving the girls completely alone .

Very enjoyable storyline. Loved the bickering banter between Edward and Bella. Reminds me of the movie "Cutting Edge" where the two major characters banter all the time. Called it foreplay before thy both realized they were in love with each other. Took Bella going on a couple dates with Garrett before Edward made his move and declared him. The makeup sex would be intense.



Author's Response:

Sorry it's taken me so long to reply.  I really enjoyed writing this story and I'm thrilled to hear you enjoyed it, too.  I had such fun with the bickering banter.  I've never seen "Cutting Edge", I'll definitely have to check it out sometime.  Yeah, Edward definitely got jealous about her going out with Garrett.  They would DEFINITELY have some intense makeup sex.  Rowr!

Thanks for the nice review, I appreciate it so much!

Delightfully evil and delicious story. Loved Edward and his vulnerability in this one.



Author's Response:

Haha, we had fun with it, that's for sure.  So thrilled that you liked Edward's vulnerability.  We really enjoying exploring the dynamic between his strenth and his willingness to be vulnerable.  So glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the nice review!

Both of them felt the connection between them. Both want more. Both have similar interest with regards to the violin. Bella is doubting her current career because of her desire for Edward. Edward want Bella also, but not on a paying method. Neither is willing to cross that invisible line to find a solution together to be together. Both ar distracted and miserable without their connection.



Author's Response:

You are absolutely right about where they both are mentally right now.  They need to get to a point where they realize they want to be together enough to cross the invisible line and make the needed changes.  Thanks for the review, we appreciate it so much.
