8 years.

8 years could mean a world's difference; a millenium's worth of time, names and faces; a generation apart.

Or 8 years could mean absolutely nothing at all.

AH, BxE (Romance comes when Bella is a little older.)

I just discovered your story and I completely fell in love with your little Bella. I usually don't review earlier chapters when I catch up with a story, but I simply had to tell you that before I continue reading and Bella grows up in your story. She's so clever and mature and sweet. She reminds me of a girl I used to know, my neighbor. I met her when she was 4 and I was 13 and we were very close until we were 13 and 22 and her family moved to another country and we lost contact. :(

Author's Response:

Thank you :) Things like that happen, at least you've had the experience of meeting her :)

It somehow seems a little sudden how Edward changed from seeing Bella as a little sister to falling in love with her. But that's probably only because we only see snippets out of their life together. And maybe it's not that strange considering that teens of about 14 change very fast. I've seen several kids who were between 9 and 5 years younger then me grow up to be young women and men and I've had many of those sudden "Wow, he or she isn't a little child anymore" moments when I saw them in a formal dress/suit for the first time, when the posters in the rooms changed from ponies to pop stars, when one of the kids had his first girlfriend... With all them my realization that they aren't little aynymore came quite sudden.

It will be very intersting to see how Edward deals with his new feelings for Bella.

And I understand Bella so well. I had so much fun when Edward acted all jealous in Eclipse. Okay, maybe fun is the wrong word, but I liked seeing the always correct and composed Edward acting so ... human.

Edward got a new job at Bella's school, right? That's not good. That means she's off limits until she graduates. Poor Edward. You can't make him wait 4 more years! Where do Edward and Bella live by the way? Phoenix? In this case poor Edward would have to wait 3 more years anyway. The age of consent in Arizona is 18, I looked it up. I'm really excited how you will develop this story.

Author's Response:

Hmm... age of consent is when two people can have sex, right? I think it's fine if Bella is under 18, if they don't do any sexing :P

Heartbeat by nigcooke22 Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 156]

Eight months have passed since Edward left Bella broken in the forest. Bella never jumped, Alice never saw her, Edward never went to Italy.

After being away for so long, Edward can no longer take being away from his beloved.

When he comes back, he finds something that might change everything in his life.

Can Edward and his family handle a pregnant and hormonal Bella, all the while trying to avoid an angry young werewolf totally against a bunch of "blood suckers" raising his child?

*This story was originally posted as a oneshot on on my other account, but i've decided to go beyond that and make it into a full story.

Wow, I didn't expect that Edward and Tanya only broke up so recently. Officially I mean. I hope she won't be a problem.

I loved the name discussion, I'm a sucker for names. I like the name Darcy for a girl, too, for the same reason as Bella. I love Mr. Darcy. But Darcy means "dark", so I would rule out the name. Austen sounds okay, but I wouldn't want to name my child like a town. I like Caden very much. It means "fighter".



I had known him my whole life, but it had only been five months, two weeks, and six days since I’d realised I was in love with my best friend, and I still hadn’t worked up the courage to tell him.

Bella & Edward are next door neighbours, and since childhood best friends. Bella is the shy and clumsy girl at school, picked on by the other students in her class; Edward the popular jock with flocks of girls who like him. How can Bella ever express her feelings of more than just friendship for him?

I loved the Spa scene. :D It filled my head with so many dirty images about what happened if Edward hadn't stopped and about what he probably did in the shower afterwards. :D Okay, I'm officially a pervert. :D But I'm glad they didn't go further. Edward's and Bella's relstionship shouldn't develop before Lauren is out of the way.

I haven't seen New Moon yet. :( I live in Germany and it starts next week here. They do a Twilight/New Moon pre-premiere thing on Sunday, but the tickets were all gone a month ago and I was too late to get some. :( I've got tickets for the regular premiere on Wednesday.

Oh no, Lauren is still around. :( At least Edward made clear that he won't give Bella up.

I wonder what Edward knows about Felix and why he is so reluctant to share the story.

New Moon: Overall, I liked the movie, although there was not nearly enough Edward, but that was to be suspected. He made the most of the scenes he got though.I'm a little disappointed that some scenes were cut short. I missed the conversation between Edward and Bella in which he told her how miserable he was without her and that he did practically nothing when he wasn't trying his hand at tracking. It's one of my favourite scenes in the book. I liked Taylor as Jacob very much although I'm not really a fan of Jacob. But Taylor played his character very likeable.

I like Edward's and Bella's relationship in this story, I love stories in which they start out as best friends. It's really sweet that Edward skipped class to look after Bella when she got sick. Thankfully I never had to dissect anything in biology unless you count an onion. We had to dissect human brains at university though and to my surprise I didn't have a problem with that.

I can't understand that Edward is still dating Lauren although she treats Bella that bad. Edward does know how his girlfriend treats Bella, doesn't he? How can he have a relationship with somebody who treats his best friend like that?

You positively surprised me with this chapter. I liked your first two chapters, but expected nothing too deep, just the typical High School fic I like to read from time to time when I just want to relax.

But in this chapter I had the feeling that there's much more to your characters than the typical cliches. Lauren isn't just the typical dumb cheerleader, she's actually an ambitious and clever girl with a bad home life. That still doesn't make me like her, but it makes it harder for me to hate her, although demanding that Edward chooses between her and Bella was really low.

I loved the scene in the park with Edward and Bella. It was so sweet when he stroke Bella's hair, the scene almost seemed like they were a couple. I like it that your Edward has an interest in photography. He obviously isn't the typical dumb jock, but he doesn't seem to be the perfect student who has never gotten a B in his life either (Bella wouldn't have consider the possibility that he needs help with school then). Although he's one of the popular kids he still seems to be sensitive and somehow normal. I really like your Edward. And I'm so happy that he chose Bella over Lauren.

Author's Response:

Wow. I'm glad you find the story to have more depth then you originally thought it would. This is my first real deep story that I'm attempting to write and it really warms my heart that you're liking it.

I'm very big on character development and plan on giving depth to even the minor characters. Believe me, there is a reason why Lauren is the way she is. I plan on writing an out take from her point of view in the future.

Edward is an average B- student. He could do better but doesn't really try hard enough. He doesn't need tutoring, he just needs to apply himself. ;)

I'm glad you're liking the story and I hope you keep with it. Thanks so much for your lovely review!! :)

Finally Edward found out what a bitch Lauren is towards Bella when he isn't around! I'm so happy he broke up with her. He better doesn't take her back after the scene he just witnessed!

I hope Edward and Bella will spend the rest of the day together and he will do something sweet to make up for being an oblivious idiot all the time.

Edward's presents were really sweet. Bella should really be able to tell how he feels about her.

I'm a little disappointed that Bella didn't have another dream. :(

Finally someone explains Bella's dislike for birthday parties. It was understandable in canon because Bella didn't want to be older than Edward, but I always think it's strange when authors just include this in an AH story without an explanation.

Emmet has a strange sense of humor. I think my father and stepmother would like him. For my last birthday they gave me a t-shirt which said "I'm 25. Please help me cross the road and get me a wheelchair." (This was their very subtil way of telling me I should get excercise.)

Loner by Nilla Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 9908]

Edward Cullen was a loner, an outcast. He clearly hated everybody, including himself. He was not a nice person. So, why was I so drawn to him? And why did I get the crazy feeling he felt the same way?

WARNING: This story will deal with the aftermath of child abuse and rape. If that bothers you too much, I strongly recommend that you don’t read.

Jealous Bella is so cute. :D I'm curious what Edward thinks of her possessive behaviour.

The freesia as a gift for Bella was a very good choice. Did you choose it as a reference to the books (because Edward says Bella smells like freesias) or because of its symbolism? I think "innocent tenderness" fits Edwards feelings for Bella very well. Does purple as a flower color have a certain meaning? I know a little about the meaning of flowers, but I can't remember reading anything about the symbolism of purple flowers. Usually purple is associazed with creativity and spirituality, but I don't think that's what Edward wanted to express.

Author's Response: I'd like to say that I chose freesia because of the books, but then I'd be lying, because I have completely forgotten he said anything like that. *lol* But I guess that just makes it more fitting, thanks for pointing it out! I actually chose it because of the meaning (sweetness, friendship and trust) , and as for the color, I just picked purple because I think it's beautiful myself. Anyway, thank you so much for your review!

Reviewer: CandraJade Signed
Date: December 02, 2009 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4

I love this story and I feel very sorry for Edward. He has lived with the Cullens for 6 years and still hasn't gained enough trust in his adoptive parents and Alice to let them touch him? That's rare, even for abused children. But since James made Edward believe that he is not wirth of loving it's possible that he won't let his new family in. And considering he refuses to share this with his psychologist the therapy hasn't helped at all. However, the psychologist isn't very good if she didn't expect this from an abused child, even when Edward didn't tell her. I've just gotten my psychology degree and my knowledge on this matter is purely theory and I know that nearly every child who has been abused by a family member thinks it's his fault.

I wonder how Bella will be able to get through to Edward when neither his family nor the psychologist made much progress in six years.

I so want to know what happened to Bella and what the painkillers are really for. It sounded like Phil has abused Bella, too, but maybe the scene was misleading. You didn't say directly that it was Phil who broke Bella's arm. Bella doesn't act like somebody who has been abused by a family member over an extended period of time. She is too trusting for that. She has obviously been physically attacked by someone, she wouldn't have reacted so strongly to Tyler otherwise. But unlike Edward, Bella still has trust in herself and other people. So if it was Phil who abused her I'm pretty sure he hasn't done it for a long time. Maybe Renee only married him recently, like in the book.

Author's Response: Ooh, really long review, I love it! :) Your theories about Bella and Phil are interesting, like I said in another review, things aren't always the way they seem. You'll find out a bit more within the next couple of chapters. I have the next one almost finished and plan on posting it for validation later today. Thank you so much for your review! :)

Poor Edward. I felt so sorry for him when everybody was fussing over Bella and nobody thought about going after him and looking if HE was alright after Rosalie accused him of being the cause for Bella's semi-breakdown.

Edward was actually pretty sweet for his standards when he asked Bella if Tyler hurt her.

I wonder how much Alice and Emmet know about what happened to Edward. Alice obviously knows that Edward has been abused, but does she know about the sexual abuse, too?

Phil asked Bella to let go of "her?" Of her mom, I assume. Maybe Bella's mom was attacked and Bella got hurt by trying to help her? It sounded like Phil somehow tried to help Bella, to tell her that she can't do anything anymore. I think her mom died during whatever happened and that's why Bella came to Forks.

The meds are really for Headaches? I didn't suspect that. It's very rare that flashbacks come together with migraine attacks. Dizziness, nausea, trouble with breathing, chest pain - yes, but usually no headache.


Author's Response: Maybe things will look up for Edward soon. ;) In the next chapter you'll find out more about Bella and her past. And you'll find out more about Edward and his family eventually. Thank you so much for your review, promise you'll get all the answers if you keep reading. :)

Wow, Edward actually asked Bella to stay with him. That means a lot coming from him.

So it was Phil who broke Bella's arm? It didn't sound like he ever hurt Bella before this day. Maybe Bella tried to get to her mom's body, he tried to hold her back and she struggled so hard that she broke her arm.

I still wonder what exactly happened to Bella's mom. If Phil didn't want Bella to come in and see her it was probably not simply a heart attack or something, but something that made the body look bad. Maybe she commited suicide? Or she was killed by a burglar?

Author's Response: I'll reveal what happened to Bella's mom and to her arm in the next chapter. Thanks for your review!

I love it how Bella always defends Edward and takes his side. He really needs that.

And Edward is so sweet with Bella  - for his standards. He was so worried and protective when she fainted.

The families reaction was priceless.

I wonder how long it will take the family to notice Edward and Bella have a thing for each other. I guess the thought of Edward reacting like a normal teenage boy and falling in love is just too strange for them to even think about it.

Author's Response: I have a feeling at least *someone* in the family is about to start wondering. ;) (not telling who) Thanks for your review, another chapter should be up soon. :)

It's so heart warming to read how much better Edward feels when Bella is there. He even gets more comfortable touching her. Bella's mere presence seems to calm Edward.

Oh and Alice plays matchmaker. I love that. Surely she is thrilled that her brother seems to start opening up to a girl she can approve.

Esme seemed to suspect something, too. I wonder if she or Alice will talk to Bella about Edward's past. I think Bella should know, because when she doesn't know about the sexual abuse she could unknowingly do something to really upset him when she and Edward start dating. One wrong word or touch could really scare Edward. On the other hand Edward would get really angry if Esme, Carlisle or Alice told Bella. The best would probably be if he told her himself, but that won't happen anytime soon.

Bella is really doing a good job dealing with Edward, although he isn't making it easy for her. He reminds me of a scared animal in your story. Very much like the frightened, underweight, neglected and probably abused cat I "adopted" 1 1/2 years ago. It will take a while until he stops being afraid of Bella, although he's making much progress. A part of him wants to trust Bella and to see if she will still aceept him when she knows his secret. I hope he will confide into her and tell her about his past.

You really touched me with your story. It's easy for me to relate to your Bella, because I'm pretty much in the same situation (except that I never had any form of relationship, not even a date or a kiss in my 26 years). You're a very good writer and all your characters are believeable and likeable. I'm curious to get to know Edward in your story. I hope he'll be all knight in shining armour and give Bella everything she's dreaming of.

Author's Response:

Thanks for the review. I'm really glad that you can relate to the story, even though it's not the happiest one. Just know that A LOT of reviewers are saying that they can completely relate as well. And yes, Edward does come, but it's not as easy as 'knight in shinning armor'.


Bella comes to Forks as the overweight, excessively pale, book worm. No guy wants anything to do with her. Edward Cullen is the popular, smart, athletic, honor student who all the girls swoon over, despite the fact that he's never expressed interest in any of them.

Oh," Jacob hesitates. "I just figured the way he acted around you the other night and how you were going to his party that maybe you guys were..." He trails off.

"Well, no." I clarify. "We are only biology partners."

"OH! I get," he nearly shouts. "Like benefriends."

"WHAT?!" I yell, "NO!" I pull the phone away from my ear and press the TALK button to end the call.

"No Jacob! That is NOT what is going on between Edward and I, AT ALL, you perv!"
