Wow, I really loved this, I can imagine how hard it was to write, but I really appreciated seeing this through Esme's eyes. Wonderfully done! :)

I had a difficult time reading New Moon, it is heartbreaking! I could feel the difference in my mood throughought the book! I also often wondered what Carlisle and Esme had to say about abandoning Bella! Thank you for writing this!

After getting this story from the Vampies. I really like the view that you took on Esme. It brings more to the orginal story. How other members of the family felt about Edward's decision. From the orginal story I felt that this connection between Bella and Edward was the same as the wolf's imprinting.
Esme was very preceptive of all of the feelings and what was going to happen to all because of actions taken by all the family members. What a added point of view. Thank you for this short story.

Utterly amazing. You nailed Esme's character perfectly, and her want but not being able to help Edward was heart breaking.
I particularly loved this line: "If there is one thing we've learned from our relationship, it's that love is a journey, not a destination."
That was heart breaking and amazing all at the same time.

So, onto burying things.
Sweetling, I am in awe. You always write a flawless Esme. I'm over the moon for Esme's New Moon. I know how deeply you feel for this oft missed couple who deserve so much time of their own.
You take such good care of these two and it bleeds onto the screen through your heartbreaking words. I'm very proud of you and you deserve this win so much.
When Esme followed them into the woods, I got goosebumps. I broke with every thought she had. And, she went and found Sam Uley, I was so impressed by the fact she put her life on the line to make sure Bella was taken care of.
Well written, and well deserved!
xoxo all over your CFM pumps. - Apie

Congratulations on the Vampie award!
This was a good idea for a story. Very interesting to read your interpretation of what might have happened among the Cullens during this time.
To be honest there are a couple of things that feel a bit off to me. The speech is somewhat unnatural at times. I don't think Edward would compare anything to ripping off a Band-Aid. Since Band-Aids weren't manufactured until the mid-1920s, neither Edward nor Esme would have ever used one. Also, the Cullens were not aware that there were still shapeshifters among the Quileutes until Alice came back after Bella's cliff dive.
But there are a lot of good things as well. I like when Carlisle says "They really aren't ours, nor are they children." I like that Edward played the music for Esme one last time. I like how she thinks, "How could he leave her lost and alone? But I knew he too was lost and alone..." And I love Carlisle's words at the end: "love is a journey, not a destination."

This was rather sad and lovely at the same time. I understand why Edward did what he did but I always thought it was wrong. I also thought she forgave him far too easily. LOL

Edward's agony in New Moon has such a profound impact on the rest of the family, but the book focuses so deeply on Bella's agony that the reader never really sees how the Cullens were affected by their parting as well.
Esme clearly understands Edward's reasoning to leave, but she is sensitive and reluctant, as I imagine she would be had she panicked when he first told her his intentions.
I loved Edward's line to Esme: "It is about endless beauty, gentle kindness and generosity. It is my portrait of you in musical form. I wanted to play it for you one last time."
I just thought that was so lovely, and very much something he would say. And how he speaks about Bella: "She is brilliant, yet meek. She is glows with a beauty that comes from within and shines outwardly. She feels like home and makes me want to be more than I am. She fills my thoughts and I feel called to her. Her happiness is all that matters to me."
I thought this was a very insightful piece. Despite the sad subject, it has a quiet beauty to it which I think is very appropriate to Esme's character.
