It was so nice to see Edward and his family especially his younger sister Katie in the mix. I was worried that
their family life would have been damaged what with his banishment for two years. As I said before, that was
a desperate move on the parents part, to send him away, he could have felt abandoned and displaced because he was young and foolish. I see the merit in it, as it turned out in their favor, Edward is still Edward but the punishment
kept him out of further trouble that he seemed to be headed in. So the away school and the reward of the car did
the trick, Edward seems to have learned his lesson and the family is closer than ever it seems. And now to
repair first love. Edward is gaining Bella's trust now as he gives her a true picture of who he is, where he's been, and
how he feels about her. Good start.

Wow... Just wow! When I started this I thought I wouldn't get past a few chapters but a couple in and I was hooked and couldn't stop reading it. It brought back a lot of old feelings back. It always amazes me when an author can bring those emtions forward. But I've never felt that nervousness of new and exciting emotions like a teenager before just from reading a story. It was really cool! I loved this! I really liked that you didn't drag things out like some do. You could have but you didn't. I'm also glad you didn't go into too much detail about her relationship w Garrett but it didn't take away from the significance of it. You are a really great writer! I can't wait to read whatever else you have written/plan to write. Great ff! Def going on fav story/fav author! Much love!

I love how careful Edward was, he really wants her and was willing to wait. Bella is still
young Bella but I think she's learned a little about self-respect even in the mist of an

It's sweet watching them reconnect. Slow but surely that spark will get flamed.

I think Bella is right, she needs a little alone time, get her head and heart screwed on right before getting
back into another relationship that once burned her.
I feel like Edward is getting his feelings out in such small pieces, I think he has so much more
to him than what he's shown so far. I think he needs to let Bella get to see all of him so she
can see the parts of him she always loved and the new version that came to be with some soul
searching and growing up.

Bella is at least smart enough to realize that although Garrett is a very good person and boyfriend, there's
just something gone missing, or maybe what went missing suddenly came back in the form of Edward. I think
Edward's drunken conversation let Bella know he at least wants to try and recapture what they once had but in
the end Bella gets to drive this new friendship in any direction she feels it steering her into. First, she should be
honest with Garrett, comfortable is wonderful when you know it's the right fit, but she's obviously questioning what
they have, so with or without Edward I think she should call a time out so they both can explore and find themselves
and like with Edward and she, if in the end they want to try again, the newer more mature selves, then at least they'd
been honest and ventured out to see whats what. But of course we all know who she's going to be with in the end, because who can resist an Edward who has matured and hopefully grown from the previous two years.

I have to admire Bella for breaking if off before she even knows if Edward is a go. Usually that's
how break-ups happen. One or both people have someone already on the side and then the one
without has to cope. In this case Bella/Garrett are doing it for the right reasons but it seems just as heartbreaking because they both respect and on some level love each other. But when something's not right, it's just not right. Like I said, it's usually harder still when one has already found another and the other is left with the knife to the heart and man, this I know from experience, that tear hurts so badly. This was still pretty sad, because they are both trying to do the right thing leaving for the right reasons. Garrett is a good guy, I hope he finds someone worthy of his devotion.
Now on to the Edward and Bella show...let's see what a little experience and maturity can do for their relationship.

Oh he did graduate but he's just taking a year off too work and work things out it seems. Finally, I sense a little substance in our lover boy. I can't wait to hear about what his life has been like, what
he's really been feeling all this time.
| BellaTesoro chapter 14 . 1/9
Well so much for Edward roughing it in New York as a punishment, he's gotten his Camaro and he hasn't even
graduated yet, or at least I don't think he has.
Bella's relationship with Garrett was a bit more "normal" in that they went out on dates, didn't sneak around, wasn't into the drink and get stoned thing, in other words a healthy boyfriend/girlfriend relationship while with Edward, Bella was always just one of the group until he wanted a little alone time...yup, I guess these kids are growing 's mature of Bella to realize she loves Garrett yet it's ok if they live their own lives and go off and do their own
thing. But she can't truly be in love with him if she's ok with whatever happens happens attitude.
I still want to know what's been going on in Edward's life. I think I'm about to find out.
| BellaTesoro chapter 13 . 1/9
Well it's just natural that a young girl would be attracted to some other boy at some point in time. It's natural
and normal and probably a good healthy thing to do. I wonder what Edward is doing, feeling, experiencing.
Did he just let Bella go so easily, not communicating with her and all... as a good thing for her as well as for himself or is it just that he's this self-absorbed too.
| BellaTesoro chapter 12 . 1/9
I can't imagine sending your child away for years and only seeing him on holidays. I can only imagine Edward
feels abandoned even though he knows he messed up. He did need to be stopped but so does Emmett, the family
probably needed family counseling to help handle things. What is Emmett going to feel without his brother and all that.
I find it realistic that on one hand of course Bells would miss Edward and he her but once apart and living their lives
they will survive and move on. They were just too immature, and self-absorbed, in other words, they were teens.
| BellaTesoro chapter 11 . 1/9
Wow, now they nail Edward. It's not like Emmett isn't doing the same thing. The parents seemed so cool with
everything up to this point, but I guess storing away a pound of weed, I guess it is, was over their boundaries of
what was the last straw. I do feel for their frustrations though, the kid is a little out of control but it's not like he's
allowed it to control his life. *shrugs* Maybe it's for the best before he goes too far, and maybe before both Bella and
Edward go too far. I wonder what Charlie will think of Edward now, doubt if they'll let Bella go out with him anymore.

Oh the joys of hormonal young people. You've gotten the feel of teens so perfectly. Driven by their hormones and
not their common sense. At least Edward is up for waiting until Bella is "ready" for him. And I think he likes the idea she wants him to be her first. Who's he kidding, he wants to be her first too.

I'm surprised that Renee would even consider allowing her 15 year old to go on a group
over night to Universal. I'm thinking Renee fell under Edward's swoon-worthy spell after
meeting him. I'm curious just what Edward is feeling about Bella. He's such a little player
and doesn't seem serious about anything, but this could just be because of naive Bella's
perception. To come over at night, in his PJ's and starting to pay her some attention he must
be feeling something more than just what a hormonal teen would, or maybe this is all teen driven lust
after virginal Bella anyway.
| BellaTesoro chapter 7 . 1/8
I was glad that Bella, at least internally, told herself she would not go all the way with Edward
as she was feeling like she didn't want to give away her whole self to someone who might
not stick around. It was good finding out about Edward's family relationships. That he does
have a goal to be a lawyer like his mom and that he gets that he's only doing what his parents
did in their younger days. I guess that's why these kids give themselves up to pot, drinking and
early sex. I suppose they think it's just following in their parent's footsteps and the "don't do as i do, do as I say..." is
nothing but bull-shit.
