Loved this chapter. The way they met and Bella concealing her recognition of him was good, too.
Look forward to hearing if James found out about her innocent foray with Edward.

It's so much easier to read your story with the knowledge that this will be a E & B story (thanks for the review replies)
The beginning of this chapter was so sweet. I love Bella the fangirl. :-)
I hope Edward hasn't told James about his conversation with Bella. For now I'm relieved that James had an "unreadable expression" and not an angry or murderous one. Very evil cliffie.
I loved this chapter and I'm looking forward to the next chapter next week.

Another nice chapter. Just a note - have you considered getting a beta? There are many things that you might want to consider tweaking in future chapters (as well as correct some of the errors you have in this; a second set of eyes often catches them). For instance, you have Bella internal dialogue in the second paragraph (the majority of it, in fact) that should be italicized to set it apart from normal narration. But again, a nice chapter. :)

Omg Flubbles I'm calling you icy! Your making us wait. I don't want her to get hurt! I hate James. Great chapter bb. Until next week.

Oh oh, I hope Edward doesn't find out she lied about knowing who he is. I can't wait to see what happens when Edward sees how Bella is around James. And how long it takes him to figure out something isn't quite right.
And OMG you did not leave it there! Evil cliffie again? LOL.
Thank you for another wonderful chapter. Have a wonderful time away! xoxo

I was nervous for Bella the whole time. I am glad that Edward reacted the way he did, that was some relief. Although I felt bad that he's still hurting from the loss of his wife. Maybe Bella & Edward can become friends and comfort each other. They always say the best relationships start with a good friendship. Hoping that's the angle you are working towards. *winks*
Now I'm all in a panic again because I don't know what happened next door between James and Edward. Worried that James will find out about Bella's lie. Oh heavens, you've learned well from Icy on how to do cliffies.
You definitely have me hooked now, can't seem to stop thinking about your story. Always working through several scenarios in my head on which way you will go next.
Have a good holiday!

Oh! Great job! I think you have been taking cliffie writing lessons from the best! lol
Cant wait to see where this story goes next! Thank you for the lovely update, and have a great time on your weekend away!

boo to james but Bella'd better come clean about knowing who edward is or there'll be tears before bedtime.
| majose chapter 4 . 5/5/2010
Seriously? Now I am all nervous to find out if James is going to go psycho on her.
In my opinion it was of poor taste of her to ask Edward about his wife knowing his story. Even if she thinks that he might be seeing someone else.

Bella’s reaction is typically that of an abuse victim, and of course it would seem like an overreaction to Edward – this is well done. Loved Bella’s internal monologue, though – battling with whether or not to reveal she recognizes him.
Of course, the lemon drizzle – a bit of ‘lemon’ early on, right! But Bella is already fretting over James’s reaction, and I sense that is going to cause her a great deal of trouble as the story progresses.
What a complex Edward you’ve created in just a few paragraphs – brash as first, polite enough to invite her for tea, and yet completely as ease with using profanity around her, then standoffish when she asks about his wife, asking Bella to leave.
Yes, what a place to leave off indeed, but I don’t think Edward gave her away – I think perhaps he either didn’t answer his door, or gave James the brush-off. Well done, Flubs!

EK! ok, between you and icy, you're gonna make me have a heart attack! oh lord. i just want her to leave james. like that's all. can you make that happen in the next chapter? and then edward finds out about the beatings and kicks the shit out of james and then bella and edward live happily ever after with a pretty pink bow tied up neatly round the story...yes?
btw, excellent writing! i can picture everything quite clearly. and you are descriptive w/o being overlty flowery, kwim?
well, done flubs! now, see what you can do about my request, k?

Aww I worried over nothing, he was kind after all. Intrigued about the back story with his wife. Here's hoping he keeps her "secret".
Another great chapter, I look forward to more.
| golden49 chapter 4 . 5/5/2010
Dun dun dun...shit! So, are you going to be evil, like Icy, and do the cliffies?
I'm so worried for Bella. I hope Edward didn't tell James anything that will get her hurt.
Still hating James BIG time!
Thanks for another captivating chapter. I hope you have a great weekend Flubbles!

And now I want cake, which is not an option.
Lovely chapter, I could cheerfully beat you for hanging us out and leaving us. But then I definitely would never find out what happens...
Thanks for the update.
