This story is perfect. I am reading it for awhile and I don't usually review but I really have to tell you how incredible I think your work is. This is one of the most original story I have ever read and I become more and more obsessive with it. I like you because you are unpredictable, and I don't know what I can except from this story, but I know that I can't wait patiently for new update.
Thank you so much for writing this!:)
This story makes my life so much more interesting...thank you for that!

A friend of mine told me this was a must read...and I have to agree...
It is fantastic. Your characters are very deep and detailed and I feel as though we have only scratched the surface. I am interested in knowing Edwards side of the story from New Years...How did he end up with Alic so quickly...who instigated it?
Looking forward to more!

Sal, i fucking LOVE this chapter! God where to start...i guess with your own words. Bella was pierced by the image...
So was i! I pictured every sentenced as if it were on film, your so descriptive and my imagination drew everything you wrote so beautifully. These are my favourite bits...
-“A notoriously hard tooth to knock out, so they say,” Not if your Edward with undiluted testosterone trickling through your veins. (Oh fuck yeah!)
-Using all the hot water...for the same reasons as all the other Edwards?
-Eating everything in the fridge...hm i love a man i can feed! I know you relate!
-His eyes stripped the dress from her curves as she shivered...i think i blushed for her reading that!
-Her pulse felt like a fingertip tapping at her throat.
She would have to put it out of her mind, otherwise he would get upset...i think this is important, it shows that they do/did 'care' about eachother, aside from the difficulties in thier relationship. Or that he possesses qualities that endear him to her, so that she cares if he is hurt/upset.

So we may never get Alice's pov? I have to stop forming hypotheses then. Yes, I am aware that Alice is not even mentioned in Chapter 2, but it's the only one I'm allowed to review. This chapter was great asa always, but left me feeling frustrated, because Edward was such an asshole in highschool. No matter what he'll tell her in the much anticipated Chapter 10, he may have been crazy about her in HS, but he didn't really seem to actually love her. If he had, he would have cared if she was having a good or a shitty time, e.g. at the prom. So it'll be very interesting to see if he has indeed changed and if he can prove it of course.
What was even more heartbreaking though is Bella (i.e. all of us) realizing how pointless envisaging the best possible outcome is when it comes to real life situations. That's what I keep telling people when they insist that positive thinking can do miracles. At least when the less nice things happen you are somewhat mentally prepared (which should *not* be taken to mean that I am prepared for TB&TC not to be updated tomorrow the latest!)

Just read the chapter, and I really like that we finally got the story about what happened that night to make Bella leave. I must say that while what happened between Alice and Edward was really messed up, I do believe that Edward had a really good reason for doing what in did, and because of that I'm really looking froward to hearing Edwards side of the story.
I continue to love your story with each chapter. You are an amazing writer. And I did vote for your story for the indie awards before the first round ended.

Oh my, what a lovely, dark and anguished tale. I am mad for it. Edward's side...hm...I don't know if it will even matter, you know? I don't think he's beyond redemption now, but it doesn't seem quite fair that he gets to have a say...will we get to know what became of Alice?
Truly beautiful writing. Kudos.

I'm not sure if I'm turned on by Edward's antics or if it makes me want to stab his throat! GAH...
