She nailed both programs and I loved how she was so sweet to Angela... living proof that you do Not have to be cutthroat to be good~ Eric is so funny, nice comedy relief, LOL
That proposal was perfect for them~ and the night before his description of her on the window seat was so sweet~ I would love to have been inside His head when she finished skating the song...

You did your skater proud there mama~! *cheeky blush*
I held my breath until Edward rescued Bella, I knew he had to get there in time... Mama Bear, Woo gotta flove Esme~ Bella is Her daughter~ I thought for sure she was gonna smack down on renee... and Woo swoon on Charlie putting ren in her place! Loverly~!
Little dude sure wasn't real taken with girl skater, but since Edward likes her he guesses its okay... too cute~!

WTH~ you trying to sabotage your own skater... Sheesh~!
I do believe our kisa will be over the wall in a heartbeat~!

I have to say, THIS IS MY FAVORITE CHAPTER~ So many poignant & swoon worthy pieces in this one. I think my favorite was the dance in her apartment~ *Le Heavy Sigh*
When he came home in the middle of his tour, their pillow fight, and Christmas, she belongs with them...

I KNEW after talking on the phone he was going to show up without telling her. But having her dad with him. Wow- the man get 's her-! He does know her better than she knows herself. When she saw him. It just blew her away she couldn't believe her eyes... he knew she needed him there. Like she said before, he is her rock & her refuge... never mind that she finally admitted if only to herself, that she really needed him there more than anything. And how much He Knew she wanted her dad their and he made that happen for her! The man loves her...
The part in the room with Charlie was so sweet! How he was following her all along - letting her know how much He loves her and how proud of her he is. The part about renee made a lot of sense as to why she chose the music although until then she did not in now why herself...
Her program was not perfect, but as I have read this story, it Was perfect for this part of it... she is getting there, but it would not have been realistic for how you have written her thus fair! Classy-!

Very good chapter
| KimiD chapter 16 . 10/23/2015
She is letting her past affect her present, she needs to embrace who she is and put it out there on the ice~ I think that is what Marcus is telling her. Take who you were and mix it up with who you Are and the people who love you and believe in you will help you to believe in yourself~! She can do it she just needs to push through the hurt little girl and become Bella the Woman she is starting to become and make her one amazing skater... Marcus was free now to be able to tell her how much he admired her and believed in her and now he feels its her time to shine, who better than the man who has coached her almost all her career... he always saw the potential now he's just waiting to watch her Bloom & FLY~!
What a betrayal... what a bitch~! now we have 2 bitches and a bastard on the other team~ I could feel her anger, hurt, devastation~ ravaged & grief stricken then when she crashed and burned... lashing out, but when she threw her skates ~ Man ~ (I) wanted to scoop her up and hug her so tightly! Then when she was like comatose laying there on the ice, so broken, bruised ~ desolate... And I kept expecting Edward~~~ and then he swooped in and surrounded her with his Love and then his body, man that made me want to kiss him~ pulling her back from the brink of devastation bringing her back to the here and now... calling her back to him, His Bella~ Just ~ SWOON~!
When she told him everything and then let it slip about what phil had done... I thought he was gonna lose it worse than he did~ and then when she said sorry~ woo boy ~ they talked it through and she is finally beginning to realize what she has now far outweighs all that she has lost. Edward had it right he could not be sorry for all she'd been thru when it brought her to him and he will never regret that~ It reminds me of the song by Rascal Flatts, God Bless the broken road that lead me straight to you... it may have been a hard row to hoe, but well worth it all to have Edward, the girls, the guys and especially Carlisle and most especially Esme~
And Bella is right, they are Both stronger for it~ and Hee Hee, yeah I Bet he gets her to like at least HIM calling her Isabella~... And the lemons are nice (you write them well) but I just love the story and would read it regardless of the lemons or not... just sayin'~

Thanks for the recap... too much to remember ~ but love the long chapter!
Woo Edward wanted a piece of jake... lol but Bella was right he was not worth Edward getting in trouble and maybe missing the rest of the games... too bad they lost :(
I always think it is so sexy when the girl shaves her fella, swoon... And finally finding out about his tat, liked that one~
I knew she had it in her, just like Edward said when he watched her that time on the ice when she did not know he was there... he saw her potential to do the choreography herself, she just needed to have the right inspiration~ Edward and his piano...
Oh Swoon! (((puddle of goo))) that's me~! Could he be any sweeter? I am totally in love with your Edward... *smiles* He had almost said it to her on a couple of other occasions but stopped himself short of saying it, but I love that he could not keep from finally telling her even though he told her he did not expect it from her Yet~ I think he fell for her at the airport, he felt that Zing, and he was so disappointed when she did not show at the place on that following Tuesday~! I think you wrote it perfectly, her response~ she has never been in love~! but her feeling for him are deeper that anyone else has ever been... but Knowing that He loves her, well, that puts a different light on her feelings... she may not be there Yet, but she's getting there...

Wow, what a great chapter-! That Phil was an arse! A dog and so is renee - a bitch in heat... And I am so proud of Bella- it took Edward acting like he was walking away to spur her courage into action, he just needed her to fight for them! Trust him, believe in him... in them, he almost told her a couple of times he loves her-! But stopped himself, he wanted her to ask him... to stay and she did! It gave her the courage to take control. She was smart to go call/see Caius before facing Renee... and freezing the accounts- smart attorney! Now to see her girls and Esme!

So much in this chapter... St. Patrick's Day was fun.
Yay, she's back on the ice! Very nice of him to make her feel all better, And looks as though they kicked it up a notch in his room... he's such a sweetheart. I think he's making sure she won't freak out again like when he first kissed her... under all that control- he is So wanting to show her how he REALLY feels-!
I was thinking in the last chapter if Ali was going to ask Bella to be in her wedding, and this one she asked her. I do not think Bella has realized she and Ali and Rose are BFFs forever being the key here... LOL
Yep- I was wondering when bitchnee was going to rear her Ugly (the 'u' is pronounced with a long u sound) head...

She finally did it! Yay Bella! The snowball fight was so much fun, I found myself laughing all through this chapter~!
| KimiD chapter 5 . 10/15/2015
Terrific ~ I Need to get inside his head! LOL
Poor Bella, She has been so isolated by Renee for so long she must feel like she is all backwards... socially challenged~ He seems really shy and reserved, nothing like those women portrayed him to be like~ I think he loves what he does but has kept very much to himself and his family & friends, not much to go outside his group~ they were so cute together during the skating, singing & Kissing just like you said, very swoony~! Like Bella said, perfect~ she doesn't know how to react because she has never been around a lot of people~ always training, separate, uneasy and overwhelmed by unfamiliar circumstances...

I'm so glad I found this story, I absolutely loved it. Thank you so much. Definetly going in as one as my favourite fics ever.
| KimiD chapter 4 . 10/12/2015
It so was and so much more. When he passed her over then snapped back to see that it was really her I think He swooned... LOL he sure did not have his head in the game the first go-round... Then Alice said he was showing off... and that it was weird... just like the previous Tuesday... then all the pieces fell together and Alice lit up like a Christmas tree... *snicker* her and Rose both jumped her with questions, probably scared the bejeebers out of her. LOL She's in untamed waters and most likely feels like she is drowning... Oh yeah~ drowning in green eyes... *smiles*

Her mother is a piece of work... and she is right, she needs to find Her passion for the love of skating~ and if she does it for any other reason that because She loves it, it is useless. She should also look into her finances and see just what is what ~ she has had to have made a tidy sum of money over 15 years of skating... and she should have a say at her age of who she wants to coach her to the Olympics...
Aaand she just missed the opportunity to meet Edward again, unbeknownst to her...
