Gosh, your writing is just SO fantastic! I read this chapter as slowly as possible (restraining myself from the urge to see what happens next) simply to savor your words. The mood you set is palpable and tense and riddled with suggestion. Suggestion of feelings, urges, past hurts and desires. As much as I want them to have it out, I'm afraid for it too. Edward is odd and insensitive (downright mean sometimes) and yet I DO want him to be right for her. I want her to be able to trust him - I want him to be worthy of that trust. I have no idea how that's going to happen - they seem to have so many miles to go from here to there. Enjoying the journey though - and can't wait for more. :)

Thanks for the update.

Oh, this story... so, um, haunting? No, that's not the right word. Creepy? Maybe. Nah, not creepy either.
Well, whatever the word, I'm totally hooked. I can't wait until the whacked-out inner workings of Edward's mind are revealed.
I do think it's kinda weird that Emmett (and therefore, I would presume, most - if all not all - others) is not positive whether or not Edward can read his mind. And Edward seemed surprised that his "secret" was out, to anyone, at all.
I've put this story on alert now, so I'll know every time you grace us with more of Edward's possessive story.

I am not a reviewer generally. I spend hours neglecting my family in silence only reviewing in rare instances. I was drawn into this fanfic world also by Wide Awake and I have been searching for another story that even came close to how amazing Wide Awake is and now I have finally found it.
I love this beautiful story. I love your characters. I love that they are so different than so many stories out there. I love all the ways you remind me that you are from Australia in how you right this story.
Quickly into my fanfic life I had to make a decision...for my family and the sake of my sanity I do not allow myself to read anything that is incomplete. I have too many stories waiting for post that it tortures me daily, not to mention the current torture that angstgoddess003 is putting me through. :)
I couldn't help myself though, this story was being reced by very reliable sources on the review threads over at Wide Awake. I trusted those crazt ladies over there and they did not disappoint. This story is amazing. You totally own me. Thank you!

I am enthralled with this story. It sucks me in and now I am left wanting more! Great writing, I don't think I have ever seen such rich complex characters. Can't wait for the next chapter.

You stopes when things were getting good. I can't wait to read more. Very good story. I hope it wins a bellie.

So I'm wondering, after she pours her heart out to Edward, will he realize and regret his behavior? how will she know if he's being honest if he does?
When you said, "For the first time in years, it was she who held out her hand, and for the first time he took it reluctantly." it showed a turning point in their relationship. Maybe things will work out for them :)
thanks for updating!

I was seriously disgruntled when I got all caught up. Part of me wishes I hadn't found this story until it was completed I just want to put life on hold and carry on reading.
Strangely while I started out seeing Bella as a victim and Edward holding all the power I am now beginning to wonder if it is the other way around. The difference being that Edward knows how to wield power and Bella doesn't. God help him when she figures it out.
This gift of Edwards has dictated her life but mainly because she views herself as a victim. It was interesting realising that she hadn't told Angela about it and the reasons why. It all makes absolute sense. I can imagine from her professional viewpoint she would come up with all sorts of 'logical' explanations whereas Emmett who came to the conclusion through observation just accepts it.
I wonder if Bella could read Edward the same way if she allowed herself to?
I await the next update with bated breath (no pressure there). thank you for sharing.

Just great! Love your Edward! I want to re-read the story with every new chapter :D and I recommend it everywhere I can. So, are you updating regularly two times a week now? :)

I can't wait to find out what "that awful night" was about. Hurry, hurry!
| MachineBallerina chapter 9 . 7/8/2009
Oh, Edward. You so damn fine. You so skilled with that piece of camera, you so sexy with them Raybans and so black and yummy with that lollipop, I could eat you.
As always, I need time to recover after reading your chapters. Too. Damn. Good. Your ability to write astounds me.
I'm going to pull over to the side of the road with Edward now, for as long as it takes. Buh-bye.
