Oh my gosh! I almost started crying at the end! When did Edward die? Was it when he was sixteen, and was that the reason that h couldn't go to Bella, or was it when he was older, and he simply forgot?
I'd really like to know, so if you could tell me, I'd appreciate it!

Wow! I loved it! It got me all touchy and sentimental :)

very interesting one shot. I was bumed when I read that he died but when you had her die right there on the stone with him I thought it couldnt have ended a better way.

Well, damn, sad much? *grin* That made me cry. I was about ready to reach through the screen and try to find Edward so I could beat him, but then you made me feel all guilty for believing he would abandon Bella willingly.
I'm sorry for the writer's block, I hope this helped. And thank you for writing!

"I met the doctor that was last with him years ago. He said he died saying my name. Telling him that if they should ever see a girl with a paper clip heart around her neck, to tell her that Edward loved her."
That line was perfect.
I really liked the story, it was the perfect mix of sweet and sad.

I love the setting for this! I think it could be a good story! I love the idea of Edward and Bella being in an orphanage together...

oh. my. effing. god. that was so sad, i nearly cried. Far better than any other bella-in-orphanage stories i've ever read. I would ask for more chapters, but i like it as a oneshot. maybe you could write a different story in which edward comesback as a vampire and he couldn't get her from the orphanage cuz he's not human, then they meet and fall in love or something. With the occaisonal lemon, of course. no story is complete without some citrus fruit. Hehe. Bella and edward growing lemon trees in the back yard... makiing lemonade... hehe. Sorry for typos and stuff. I was up until, like, 4 amish last night and am currently too tired to care about spelling/grammar issuess. again, awesome story. -amelia
