readicted chapter 8 . 12/31/2016
I admit that I am stumped. It seems that Edward is quite savvy and streetwise, with enough criminal smarts to hotwire, switch out plates, alter the numbers of the plates, steal gas, but he seems to be leaving a trail of evidence in his wake. It almost seems intentional. Certainly back at the crime scene he for sure made it seem as if he were the killer or at least co-killer. He left bloody boot prints, finger prints ashes and a butt as well as his knife with his initials. The trail continues at every stop they make, but I think he has it set up to look like he kidnapped Bella. She didn't take a bag or too many clothes and she never called for help. But, she probably is on security cam at the school stealing the knife and maybe elsewhere too. At the dealership, the gas station, the motel at the uncle's? Who knows, but I'm curious. And what about Eric? I was surprised at the news of Edward's parents. I love being surprised or stumped.

They are insane! They are both psychopaths or sociopaths? Geez.

The epi was wonderful! Thank you for not letting them lose that edge that made them two of my favorite characters. I needed to see that "raw and hard and dirty" again before I let them go. In case you didn't realize, I was a PB virgin when I started this story. No matter what else I read that you've written, I think this one will always be my favorite. I don't have the words to tell you how this story reached out and grabbed me, making me feel so many different emotions. It is a classic, in my opinion, and will always be in my top ten. Thank you for sharing your talent with us, and for giving me a story I will never forget.

I know I still have the epilogue to read, but it can't be any better than this chapter. You do realize what an amazing movie this would make, don't you? When she looked up and saw Edward waiting for her on that bench, my heart swelled and the tears started flowing! I could barely see the next few paragraphs.
There were two passages here that summarized this Edward so perfectly, as your words always do:
"the passion and a sliver of chaos that always lives in Edward quickly inflames" and these sentences: "My crazy man, full of viciousness and blood and need. a fire I'm glad to see wasn't snuffed out when he found what he had been searching for. I hope he never loses that edge of bedlam that drew me to him in the first place."
I am in awe of your talent.

Oh, PB, there were so many beautiful passages in this chapter. I wish I could tell you all the ones I loved so much. I'm so glad that Bella told Charlie how she feels about Edward; and that she and Charlie got to mend their relationship. He turned out to be a good day after all. You made me get teary several times while reading this chapter. Bella is getting closer to Edward, and I'm feeling better about their HEA. You wouldn't break my heart into little pieces, would you?

Thank goodness, a chapter from Edward! I knew that boy would make it to Mexico. I'm finally starting to believe that these two won't go out in a blaze of gunfire like Bonnie and Clyde. ;) I love how Edward is so strong and determined. Even though he had that one little moment of doubt about whether Bella still wanted him or not, he is intent on getting to Playa de Sangre and waiting for her. Your Edward is definitely one of my most favorite Edwards. He's going to hold a place in my heart for a long time.

This whole chapter had me in tears, but when I read "It was always going to be him." my heart broke a little, ok a lot! Everything that happened in this chapter was so gut-wrenching, the time Bella spent at the police station, her coming back home with Charlie, her conversations with Charlie, her thoughts about Edward; you wrecked me with this one, PB. Your beautiful writing made me feel everything that poor Bella was feeling. Then you gave me a glimmer of hope... the town of Playa de Sangre on a map of Mexico.
I am so bad at expressing my thoughts, but I hope you understand a little, how very much I love this story.

I decided to be brave and read this chapter without the aid of Grey Goose. I knew you wouldn't let Edward be dead. But, woman, couldn't you give these poor kids a break? I guess you kinda did when you let Bella find the vet to patch up Edward. ;) Now, though, you let the cops chase them from the convenience store! You really know how to ramp up the suspense. This may be the best story I've ever read, seriously. I thought that last chapter ending was going to kill me, but this ending not only has me crying... you made Edward cry too! This last scene with Bella kneeling in the dirt while Edward drives away with tears streaming down his face... no words! Well, I do have one word... epic! That one's going to stay with me forever.

You left Edward bleeding on the floor of that garage, and the police are coming! I'm dying here! Thank goodness for "Deadeye Bella" and her shotgun, but I don't see any way she can get Edward out and into the car before the police come. Now I'm afraid to read the next chapter. If it wasn't before 10:00 on a Saturday morning, I'd go get a big drink of Grey Goose. Instead, I'll go do some laundry and then put on my big girl panties. Maybe then I can move on to Chapter 19. GAH, PB, you are killing me! I still love you though, and I will finish this amazing story. Just not right now. ;)
sophdrea chapter 17 . 8/21/2016
Your Bella is a true bad ass! She sure took care of those nasty boys who were threatening poor little Claudine outside of the convenience store. Bella and her shotgun make an awesome team! It made me sad that there was no one to stand up for her in high school like that; well, until Edward came along.
Poor Edward. I hated hearing about him being put in a mental institution. No wonder this poor boy has problems. It's a miracle he has survived all he's been through.
Now I'm getting nervous about what happens next; and I'm also wondering about whether E's parents are really still alive. You keep me on the edge of my sofa, PB.

I'm not sure I can express how much I loved this chapter. I had so many "AWWW" moments while I was reading. Thank you for working things out so they could get married. Thank you for letting Jasper and Alice turn out to be as close to friends as these two could have in their situation. The scene in the meadow was everything my romantic, weird, killer-loving heart could have asked for. This line was so perfectly Edward: "I fucking breathe only because of you." But the epic, breathtaking part of this whole chapter was the fact that they consummated their marriage in this random field full of wildflowers. So canon, so brilliant, my friend! You know how you have those certain scenes from stories that you never forget... this is one of those scenes for me.
