Guest chapter 4 . 4/28
Bella is being a bit naive ... Tanya maybe her employee but she did not know her well too so she can not realty judge Edward yet ... But she did the right thing to asked Edward to leave...

Perhaps it is best for all if they accept Jake & Nessie are toxic to one another & let them get their relationship pared down to being parents of a child, leaving it at that.
With the constant arguing, Jake feeling angry enough to admit to wanting to hit Nessie in their conflicts, & then cheating on her as payback for Nessie being seen with someone else, Jake is also possessive, manipulating.
Jake's already fitting some of the common behaviors of a domestic abuser even if he hasn't hit Nessie.
An abuser is typically:
2. Jealous.
He views other men as a threat to the relationship and accuses you of flirting with everyone from his brother to the mailman. “I know you are looking at him.” The irony is that he often is the one who is cheating.
3. Manipulative.
This man is very intelligent. He knows how to detect your weak spots, and he uses your vulnerability and past pain to his advantage.
4. Controlling.
He wants to know where you are going and who you are with at all times. He may check the mileage on your car or follow you to the grocery store. He often refuses to allow you to work because you might “meet someone.”

Things are still on shifting sand when it comes to ExB.

So Tanya has been lying to Bella. I really hope Nessie will grow the fuck up. I was hoping for some Blackwater side action. I cannot wait for more.

Whoops!
BIG arguments & surprising information passed between concerned parties.
Bella gives Nessie some home truths, but Nessie seems to be saying Bella doesn't know the whole story & is angry with her for not taking her side.
Nessie needs to explain herself to her family.
Charlie needs it as much as Bella does, his lifelong friendship is caught up in this mess as well.

Bravo Bella!
Bella did not back down, she did not give an inch when it comes to Edward's behavior.
Is this another case where Bella really does not have both sides of the story to make an informed decision?
Has Tanya lied or slanted her history with Edward in her favor?
Or is it as Tanya said, she could not get Edward to listen to her, to let her explain, & he then believed the worst of her?

Bella is in the middle of both situations & she needs to back off from Nessie & Jacob's.
Bella should not be Jacob's sounding board or confidante in his relationship with her sister PERIOD.
Divided loyalties in a family are always treacherous & can cause deep rifts which may never heal.
If abuse or molestation are involved, yes - seek help for your sister.
If children are involved, do what is in the best interest of the kids', not the parents.
Bella needs to apologize to Nessie for taking Jacob's side when all she knows is his version, but stand by her other statements urging Nessie to grow up, make a decision.
Bella needs to worry less about other people & more about her business, her personal life.

It's an exciting chapter from the standpoint of the interactions being highly charged & what may follow.
