Very interesting chapter. You had me totes ready and waiting for Edward a couple of times. I was sure that he was just around the corner. First, with the whole Bella sleeping over at Alice's and second with The "muscle" coming to help move in her things. *sigh*
I will wait patiently for you to deliver him to me again, though. Patience is a virtue...even though I have never really claimed to be virtuous. J/S
I loved Alice and Rose! I thought that you did a fantastic job nodding to canon...especially with Alice's character. She is a ball of enthusiasm! And man, do I want to go shopping with her. I think that we could tear up Saks or Nordstrom or Neiman's. J/S
I loved Bella's internal argument with herself! I was giggling the whole time! Mostly, because I have had those kinds of conversations in my own head. Loved this line:
"Ok, fine. So he's sexy and drop dead gorgeous, you still only talked to him for maybe fifteen minutes. Hardly life changing, right?"
Hands down...funniest part of the story...Emmett.
"Woman, why you gotta be all up in my flava?"
I literally spit out Diet Coke!
Looking forward to Edward. He is the reason I read fic, after all.

Darling and sweet story. I'm looking forward to seeing it unfold.

I really enjoyed this first chapter and am looking forward to reading where you plan to take this story!

Aw...I am glad she is going to give him a chance. I can not wait for an update.

Well, my darling...I am finally here. I am sorry to be tardy for your party. (LOL, that rhymed.) And it seems to be getting off to wonderful start.
So, I love figure skating! I love to watch it, but know nothing about it really. I am sure whatever you tell me I will believe whole-heartedly. I know nothing about hockey...at all, though I did watch The Mighty Ducks when I was a kid. So, there you go.
Really good first chapter. I found myself caught up in Bella's internal monologue. I love Bella! I usually always love Bella. And I really think I'm going to LOVE your Bella.
Loved the way they met on the airplane. That is something I don't recall reading in Fic ever. Edward is dreamy. I really loved this line:
"My desire to run my fingers through his hair was replaced with an ache to nuzzle my cheek against his to feel it scratch against my smooth skin."
Please to sign me up for some of that!
Hands down, the best part of your chapter was their dialogue! It was real. It didn't seem forced in any way. There was a flow to it that was easy and realistic given their circumstance.
Really great first chapter, sweets!
Moving on now!
I am intrigued...

I was so frustrated with Bella for pushing him away last chapter but i'm back on team Bella now after that chapter. I'm glad she realised how much he means to her & that she believes he wants to be with her. I hope she gets herself there soon, maybe next chapter?
| grtchn chapter 6 . 4/10/2010
I knew Edward would get turned on by watching her skate. It can be sexy depending on the moves.

Great chapter! Loved it
| Lizzie1211 chapter 6 . 4/10/2010
I love this story. I'm so happy Bella is making progress w not only herself but w Edward too. I wonder if Renee is monitoring the credit card to see when bola rents ice time or has called all the rinks to see when she goes there. I could totally see her flying up there w a new coach (even though Bella said not to fire the old one) & try to push her into more intse training. Bella really needs to consider firing her as she spud any other manager that pushes too much & does things against her mental & physical well being. Can't wait for more!
| laurynemily55 chapter 6 . 4/10/2010
Great chapter! I really like how you are making the two of them progress, and how you are having Bella work through her stuff before she starts something with Edward. The skating rink part was fabulous! Thanks again for another good chapter!
| annabananaboo chapter 6 . 4/10/2010
damn. I want to skate with Edward. hahaha! great chapter. can't wait for the next one. :)

oh my god. Sometimes I hate fanfiction. I just wrote this HUGE review and clicked submit ONLY for it to say that I hadn't logged in. LIES! Well, I'll TRY to write it again from memory. (KEYSMASHANGERGRR!) Lets try this again...
Batman shirts Apples to Apples best friends Transformers pretty much my perfect day. However, if need be, the movie can be interchanged with Jurassic Park, Twister, Batman Begins/Dark Knight/Iron Man, or Enchated (aka the absolute girls night movie. It's proven fact.)
Renee's dating life sounds like my fathers... maybe they should get together.
So, I must admit, from the very beginning of this story THIS was the chapter I've been waiting for. Not Bella and Edward getting together or Bella finally getting to the Olympics (which I fully believe is going to happen. RIGHT? My fingers are crossed for Edward, Emmett, and Jasper to go too), though I also can't wait for those chapters. But what I was REALLY looking forward to was when Nationals finally take place and Bella can't be there and when she finally got the okay to REALLY skate again (albiet minus the jumping). I was just PRAYING that Edward (who was absolutely adorable in the chapter btw. My only question is this: Can I have him?) would have to be the one to get her out of her funk and actually SKATE again. This chapter went above and beyond my expectations and is officially my favorite so far. My only hope is that it will get even better (which is what I expect because it's lived up to that so far ;D ) from here. Also, the image of Edward and Bella skating together was just to cute! LOVE it. 3
I also want to add that I LOVE your visuals. In a story like this where there are a lot of outfits and figure skating moves that you need to picture in your mind's eye it helps a LOT. Especially for the people who aren't very familiar with figure skating moves and routines. I myself have always had an interst in figure skating but aside from a few years skating lessons that basically taught you how to move your feet and fall, the most knowledge I have is recognizing some of the moves. I had no idea what a fan spiral was when mentioned as the move Bella falls on in the first chapter. Only that I THOUGHT it was the one that was confirmed for me today. So I thank you amensly for taking the time to search for photos and videos for us to see and picture while reading. I can't even believe you found two photos of Kristen and Rob wearing the same thing. Now that's dedication.
Sincerly looking forward to the next chapter
(I think this was better than the original lol however WAY longer... sorry about that haha)
