I did NOT expect that. I think this is a great story. HIV is still a major consequence (that seems highly overlooked sometimes) with so many young people having unprotected sex. Yeah, you trust him, but do you trust the last girl he was with?
And Bella to risk having sex with Edward, even with a condom knowing he has HIV. Wow. True love.

bloody great tale if i may say so. i loved it. i hate to see edward with hiv. hell, i hate to see anyone with such a illness. ive read many tales with edward and bella with your tipical angst or drama and some health related. i read one where edward was in remission from cancer, but we read his strruggles with it and while with bella. how it for a time kept it from her to save her the pain of it. yea, thats edward for ya. when reading this i had either two thoughts on what he was hiding. one, he has a jail record or on house arrest which would explain his not wanting or not leaving his house for surrounding area and two, he was hiding a illness and indeed he was. i just wasnt expecting hiv. the know the devastating effects of hiv and aides. a friend of mine actually contracted the illness the same way our edward did. sex with a condome will do it ever time. he to met and fell in love with a girl that he wanted to push away and she to was strong willed. they didnt have a physical relationship even though its possible with protection, but they never did, but they loved tremenously just the same. after 2 in a half years of living with this he died on a tuesday and in that moment part of her died as well, but from a broken heart. so, i know how this tale will eventually end. its funny even though its fiction it still relates to some of us. though fictional, it still strikes home for many of us or those we know. thank you for writing this. though sad, it was a beautiful reminder of a love that i once witnessed between two beautiful souls.

I never would have thought it myself, ironic considering I worked in an HIV clinic for over a year, but the illness is an excellent human parallel in so many ways. Well done!

I am so grateful to have discovered your stories. Each one I have read so far is beautiful. Each one touches me in so many ways. You are an exceptional writer!
As usual, this story does not disappoint. I'm anxiously awaiting the next chapter of Our Lives Unbound. Luckily I still have some more of your work yet to read. Please never stop writing!

Hello. Awesome story! I was so intrigued and never espected HIV, but it makes perfect sense. I liked how Edward knew Jake's feelings about Bella, when all along she didn't even know. You have a wonderful talent. Keep up your writing.
Thanks, Suzan Noerr

So sad...but still so sweet.

God, all your stories have an eerily dark beauty that make them endlessly captivating. Between the Bars, obviously, is not an exception.
A pleasure to read, as always. x

How bittersweet was that? Jeez! Great job, though. I love your writing style. So dramatic but purposeful. Awesome!

That was so sad. I knew he was sick (pills) but didn't think hiv till he said his sperm was poinsoess after jerking off in his room. So sad how his life deteriorated to where he felt he was never good enough again. I am glad she still loved him.
