This is an impressive one shot. You establish the characters very well in such a short time.
I loved the idea of Charlie looking out for Edward. The people in that town liked to think they were protecting people but they all ignored Edward being beaten as a child by his father. Edward was so brave to protect his mother like that.
Bella was so unhappy with Jacob and barely existing. Jacob didn’t even appreciate what he had. I don’t agree with people being unfaithful and Bella should have dealt with Jacob first but it was obvious that she belonged with Edward.
I really felt for Edward. He’s such a hothead but he really was searching for somewhere better for both of them to make a home. The idea that he was sending her messages from every town and trying to find a job so he could support her was so sad but hopeful. His reaction when he realised that she was engaged to someone else was heartbreaking. The idea of people interfering with Bella’s post and allowing her to think he had left her completely was maddening.
I liked the way that they rejected that awful town as a group and took everyone that had been wronged with them like one big family.

That was really beautiful. When Edward was quoting the letters to her I had tears running down my cheeks lol. Great job.

I love this line: "Rest assured, Bella. You're coming with me."
That was when I knew it would all work out for them.
I have just been in heaven today and yesterday reading all of these things from you. I guess Bare is up next...if any of the recs from the million different places that I've seen them are right, then I've saved the best for last. :)

I loved it!

Great story. I liked the rough edges of both Bella and Edward, and that Bella wasn't all starry-eyed over Edward. I saw the rec for this on PPSS, and had to give it a try. Very well done.

Thanks so much! I enjoyed this very much. Even though in present tense, I didn't feel removed from the story as I usually do. It was wonderful to read a strong Bella with deep emotions. For a one shot, the depth of plot was also appreciated. You probably hear this all the time, but I loved your writing style - so easy to get lost in. Thanks for the great read. :-)

Absolutely amazing! I really really liked this one shot. I loved this Bella. I loved how Edward fought even in the face of adversity for her. And I love that he wasn't rich... that her ring was small and that he'd been saving for it. Loved Karm - Renee... just loved it!
