Reviews for Girl with a Red Umbrella
Siriusmunchkin chapter 19 . 5/2/2012
Bella loves Edward. But she still isn't sure where she wants her life to go. Just that it needs to have Edward as a part of it. Not really surprised at what happened to Rose. Knew King had threatened her. We just don't know exactly what he's done. Well we know it was him that beat her and made her lose the baby. With any luck Edward will be able to quickly get in touch with his father and find out whay King may be wanted for in England. And hopefully the doctors will be able to keep King from kidnapping Rose from the hospital.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 18 . 5/2/2012
He'll just have to come up with a new perspective on the painting so he can finish it. She's on longer the mysterious girl with the red umbrella. Maybe he could make it a romantic painting of the love of his life? Or maybe he'll just never finish it. Not at all surprised Royce was with another girl. Still think he's planning on selling Rose into slavery or prostitution. Or at least try to. Here's hoping Edward's father can come up with something on him they can use to get rescue Rose.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 17 . 5/2/2012
Talking with the parents went about as well as she expected. Good thing Alice can convince people of most anything. Jake wasn't exactly pleased when she told him she wasn't coming back right away, or if she was even coming back. That convesation will get back to Charlie soon. We know a little more about Jasper and what he did in the war. That wasn't very pleasant. Didn't expect it to be. War is not sunshine and rainbows. It's blood, gore, death, and distruction. And it's usually people who distruct. Wonder if the helmet was his or his friend's? Still don't think we're done with Rose. Sort of hoping they will find a way to get her away from Royce.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 16 . 5/2/2012
Debussy should be outdoors enjoying life. Not stuck in a garrett. Life is taking a few twists and turns Bella never considered when she was back home. Staying in Paris will be good for her. Though pretty sure Charlie isn't going to see it that way. Wonder if Renee has left him? Or will leave him if he threatens to make Bella leave Paris immediately? He's a good man, but doesn't seem to understand why anyone would want to be anywhere but Forks. He's not the only one who believes that they have a life to be envied and anyone should be happy to have the same. Also think that the longer Bella stays in Paris the better chance that Rose might try to get away from Royce. She has to know he isn't going to marry her or anything like that. Who knows what he has threatened her with. It does probably include what would happen to Bella and Alice if they keep asking questions. Now Bella has a job and is starting to learn French. No doubt she is going to do very well.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 15 . 5/2/2012
Thinking that after Bella has a chance to reflect on everything Rose said to her she'll realize Rose was only putting up a front. Trying to protect Bella from Royce. Will Alice come to the same conclusion? Or will Rose maybe try and get a message to them that she really wants to get away from Royce but doesn't have a way of doing so? Would love to see Bella decide to stay in Paris and make a life with Edward there. One can only hope.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 14 . 5/2/2012
Wondered when Edward was going to realize he was in love with Bella. Bet Esme has already figured it out. Also guessing that as soon as Bella tells Alice what happened with Rose there is going to be a small whirlwind heading for that house. With Jasper and company in tow.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 13 . 5/2/2012
Bella is a loyal friend. Rose is being watched by the housekeeper and very afraid of what will happen to Bella when Royce finds out she was there. Whatever Royce has done, Rose is more afraid of him than anyone else. She knows he's not going to marry her. Who knows what he plans on doing with the baby once it's born. We will find all the answers to these questions sometime soon.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 12 . 5/2/2012
Jasper wasn't quite so calm when he found out what Alice and Bella had done. At least they won't do it again. And definitely agree that Royce is having them watched. And that he's probably James boss. And that he will make Bella and Alice disappear just like Rose if he gets the chance. Esme does make a very good mediater. She also knows a lot of people. And bet a lot of them don't like the kind of business that Royce King runs, and will be willing to help find Rose.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 11 . 5/2/2012
My guess has always been that Rose was either sold into slavery or is being forced to work as a prostitute. Possibly dead, but hope not. Alice and Bella are stupid and naive. But they are young and that's how most of the young are. Doesn't make them bad, just more human. 'Course it would help a lot if the guys had been more upfront with them about what kind of man Royce really was. But men are mostly idiots when it comes to the women they are in love with. They want to protect. And they are naive enough to believe that the women are going to listen. Royce was exactly who we believed he was. Esme is a smart woman. She survived the war and helped the Resistance beat the German's.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 10 . 5/2/2012
Poor Edward doesn't have a clue what he's getting into with Bella. She is walking and talking trouble with no sense of self-preservation at all. And she's developed all these characteristics since arrving in Paris. Changed from the quiet, knew where her life was going girl. Which is probably a very good thing. Hope the two idiots Edward beat up can't hurt anyone else anytime soon. It would be really fun if they were wanted for something and ended up in jail. Edward and Bella finally have a little time alone. Almost alone. Debussy should be getting his food outside where he really wants to be. Pretty sure he's not a housecat. Bella is a magnet for strays and he will take advantage. She is still so very naive that she can't see Royce is really not a nice guy. If he was as innocent as she wants to believe the two guys Edward beat up would not have been after her. Nor would they have threatened Alice in the bar.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 9 . 5/1/2012
Somehow I don't think Royce is really thinking of marrying Rose. But what is he thinking? Whatever it is isn't going to be good. Debussy is another interesting character added to the mix. Bella does have a way of picking up strays. Though that's not exactly what Edward is. And she is in some type of relationship with him. The market would probably be somewhat familiar territory for her. Though how did those two know where she would be? Would guess they know who either Edward or Jasper are. Maybe followed one or both to Alice's? Or asked around and found out who Alice was? They didn't mention Rose. But neither of the girls has mentioned her name. James and Royce don't want anyone asking questions about them. Which probably means they don't want anyone to find out anything about Rose either.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 8 . 5/1/2012
Bet Bella feels like she fell down the rabbit hole with Alice. It does look like Jasper was in the war. American military? French Resistance? Both? Bella is naive, but she's not stupid. Or afraid to speak her mind. She isn't quite getting the picture of Royce that the rest of them have. The Rose she knew would never have associated with anyone that could possibly be a criminal. At least she now knows that Esme isn't 'with' Edward in any way. And she has made quite the impression on Edward for slapping Victoire. Who just may be a friend of James? Wouldn't surprise me. Loving all the mystery and intrigue.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 7 . 5/1/2012
Snippets of Rose's letters to Bella. James deals drugs. Which is an indication that Royce is also involved in the same type of business. Have they turned Rose into an addict? Or worse? Jasper and Edward aren't about to let Alice or Bella out of their sight if at all possible. Bella is fascinated with Edward. Alice is more than fascinated with Jasper. Bella is a very naive girl out of her depth. Alice is a little more worldly, but not up to dealing with the criminal types that James and Royce appear to be. Emmett has met Rose at one of Royce's parties. His description certainly doesn't sound like the girl Bella and Rose know. And now they are about to meet Esme. And Bella believes Edward is living with her as something other than a tenant. That will end when she meets Carlisle. Or Edward actually explains things. Or Esme does.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 6 . 5/1/2012
This is really a very fun story. Right now anyway. There are bad things going on, and Rose is no doubt in a lot of trouble. Edward now knows who the mystery girl with the red umbrella is and he very much approves. Jasper is still a mystery. But Alice seems to be very interested in getting to the bottom of the mystery. Bella is way out of her depth, but she's trying to find Rose and isn't about to give up. Would guess that Jasper is going to accompany them to this club along with Edward. And maybe Edward will get Emmett to go with them. The more protection for the girls the better.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 5 . 5/1/2012
Bella is having all kinds of adventures in Paris. Things she never would have thought about. She is a very small hometown girl who believes it is perfectly acceptable to go to school and then go home to marry her childhood friend. They like each other and are very comfortable with each other. That's all she's ever hoped for. Now she's had her hair cut and is wandering around post-war Paris at night. Going to nightclubs with a girl she's only known for a few days. Drinking wine and defending herself against what she considers overly agressive men. Jasper sounds like an intersting character. He has scars. Was he in the war? The Resistance? Is he French, American, or some other nationality? Is he a good guy? And Edward suddenly show up. That's going to be a very good thing.
