Yay! The reunion was everything I hoped for and more! They're so adorable and nervous and endearing together!
It was so cute to hear about how stressed our Eddie's been. It seems so like him to act that way. Aww. I'm so glad they're reunited! )

Argh, I don't like Renee very much. At all.
I really like the strong bond Bella's forming with Rose and Alice. Plus, it was nice to "see" Alice's close relationship with Carlisle and his silly accent. )
I am so excited for the next chapter, I am so excited for the big B/E reunion!

Yay! I always love Bella's best friends, and you've characterized them perfectly in this fic! I love how they're caring, witty, friendly (can't stand when Rose is a raving b*tch), and seem like they'll grow into a really loyal support system for Bella.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely story and sharing it with us. Two chapters in, and I'm already hooked! *Now rushing to read the next chapter*

So this lovely fic was recced to me by The Fictionators, and I am soo glad. Your style of writing is so beautiful, it's almost artistic. I can tell how carefully the words are chosen and the intersperses of humor through this chapter. I can already feel myself connecting with the characters, I can't wait to read the next chapter. Onward! )

Oh it was everything I hoped it would be! Gotta love Edward. *sighs*. Poor Bella with the girls (whores) in the bathroom. I imagine that would deflate any self confidence she was feeling.
As much as I wanted them to have their moment on the ice - it was well written and extremely realistic. I'm embarrassed to say that I actually thought Emmett was behind the 'falling on the ice' incident. I was all WTF Emmett? But then quickly realized that he wouldn't willingly/knowingly ruin a B/E moment (at least not their first moment). Edward singing was enough for me...for now... ;)
I also quite liked Edward asking for his 'friend' Bella's number so he could text her. I was slightly worried for a minute...but your A/N reassured me. :) There was a lot of cuteness in this chapter...*sighs ... again*

I really enjoyed the chapter. Hopefully, Alice and Rose can help Bella with her lack of social skills and insecurities.

This is really a great story.

This was a nice chapter to read. I feel the way Bella was reacting to Edwards advances was very realistic given her lack of intimate contact. Her insecurities are definately expected, and I hope Edward will be able to help her get through those. Im looking forward to the next update :)

I like it I really do but I definitely shouldn't have read from the get go. I like a slow burn but I'm up to my neck in Insecure Bella stories and when she's SO so insecure lengthy chapters get boring and annoying. I like a 5-8K chapter when she's all "I'm plain and inexperienced and he's so experienced and Jesus perfect and a Greek God"
Plus while the Cullens are good (I really like their friendship and closeness) when Bella is insecure I hate them being pushy. Edward said Alice respects boundaries but I don't think she would. And it's different for Rose to be the same way.
So, I'll read again but I need some skim material because it's just too long for them being pushy and Bella being insecure. I know it will pick up soon or eventually I hope and I'll just wait until then because I can only roll my eyes so much before I get a headache. I like Alice and Rose I do but I wish they'd back off and I wish Bella would get in some therapy to deal with the mommy issues and some non-pushy social group to work on her confidence.

This is quickly becoming one of my fav stories! I'm hooked! Post more soon-I have to know what happens next!
| LadyTx chapter 5 . 4/2/2010
Awe... I liked the skating, it was nice. I hate Bree... (Yes, there's always some James or Victoria or Tanya or Bree that I hate; oh or even more, a Jacob!)
Poor Bella... she's so insecure!
| buffbronze chapter 5 . 4/2/2010
I love how understanding Edward is..it's clear that he likes her so much. It was also so brave of Bella to tell Edward how insecure she actually is...and he accepted it and is willing to be her friend until she is ready.
Renee is just awful..she isn't thinking of her daughter at all...Bella must feel like such a commodity...and not a daughter loved by her mother.
Anyway...love how this story is going...there has to be a little barrier there betwen Edward and Bella at the start otherwise the story would be 3 chapters long.
