Really enjoyed this chapter - especially the phone call from Cal and how he even guessed her wine choice. That bit was very cute! :)

I loved the last chap conversation - it felt like old times with the characters. Too bad Fox didn't see it that way! Thanks for the story. I realize it was a serious story but maybe a "prologue" or whatever they call it, with some humor. Although I love that he he is the good guy at the end of this fic- she still needs to get a little needle into him for the sake of it being them. Just something funny - maybe at dinner one night, etc? Hell, a shrink would just say I wanted the series to keep going - which is true but what the hey we have you . . . . :) thanks for writing!

Many,many thanks for the chapter my lovely xxx Gillian and Cal are not the only lucky ones. I/we are the lucky, privileged ones to have read your fic. It has been a rollercoaster ride of emotions at times, but bearing in mind the subject matter hardly surprising. I would like to thankyou too for having the courage to talk about such a sensitive subject. I know it was hard going at times and it hit home for me too. The shame of not being able to talk to someone vanished because of you and your writing. THANKYOU xxxx3
I LOVED the ending too. As you say it's nice to end things there. Although the idea of an epilogue excites me no end:)
Many, many thanks once again xxx
Lots of Love and Best Wishes xxxxx3

Very good last chapter to complete this story. I liked the kind of open ending and that you didn't make them declare some forced love confessions. They love each other and they already know it. All they need now is time. Cal's "You will be okay." says it all and so much more. THEY will be okay. Loved the bit about the white/red wine. He knows her inside out; she just isn't (or rather wasn't) aware of it.
I'm sad that the story is complete, but it feels right to end it here. Thank you for sharing.

Think you wrapped it up perfect, a nice ending to a nice story. But I wouldn't say no to an epilouge..
| NElaineR chapter 22 . 3/15/2013
Very sweet and nicely wrapped. Of course an epilogue is never a bad thing... ;)
| Guest chapter 22 . 3/15/2013
It was the perfect way to end it...thank you so much for taking the time to write it for us.

My heart feels like is going to beat out of my chest! I'm so worried about Gillian. Holy ASDFGHJKL:" I'm taking a deep breath while I move to the next chapter. here we go...
| HalleyFarrot chapter 2 . 3/7/2013
OH MY! I need to know what happened to Gill! Okay Cal I'm with you with the softer approach! : ) Enjoying this! thank you!

Amazing, so beautifully written and subject matter handled. I'm going to be so sad when you finish this story off. Thanks . ;)

Very intense and emotional chapter. Okay, where do I start?
I liked the realistic feel when Gillian is startled by Cal's presence and then by the sound of the microwave because given her inner tension I think that is exactly how she would behave.
Love how Cal is there for her and yet gives her enough space so that she doesn't feel threatened or constricted. It's a good thing, though, that they are both aware that what she told him will change things between them because 1. she will feel exposed from time to time no matter that she knows he doesn't judge her or will use what he knows against her and 2. he will try to protect her even more although he doesn't doubt her ability to handle cases professionally no matter what happened to her.
And then this:
Cal: "No thanks necessary love. I care about you, a lot. There's nothing I wouldn't do for you."
Gillian: "I know Cal. I feel the same about you."
Simple but perfect. That's who they are to each other. Everything.
I'm almost sad that there will be only one more chapter because even if this is an AU story, it feels very in character and very plausible despite the sensible subject. Thank you for updating.

Get carried away as much as you like my lovely:) Bearing in mind the dark subject matter of this story, what I'm about to say may come across as a little strange, but I have LOVED this story. Thankyou so very,very much for having the courage to tell it and the literary talent to put it into words xxxx3
I'm with Gillian on the milk, nutmeg and having an organised spice rack;) The genuine love and affection these two characters have for each other is so easily believable thanks to your wonderful writing. I shall be so sorry to see this come to an end:(
Many,many thanks once again xxx
Lots of Love and Best Wishes xxxx3

Getting carried away is a good thing, I think! Thoroughly enjoyed Gillian's cute fixation on the spice cabinet and how comfortable she is in his home. Nice job! :)

Somehow I can picture Gillian rearranging his pantry in the middle of the night, lol! Sweet chapter...almost there... ;)
