Dear Author ...
... I have been watching this story - so much standing out from the crowd - like a surprisingly unexpected here & now tiger lilly bud promising colour, scent and elegance so rare in our meadow ... or I should call it a playground ? Anyway, it's been painful not being able to name where the somehow familiar atmosphere of this story takes its inspiration from until you have mentioned Hawthorne. I think I only know The Marble Faun and The Scarlet Letter but now I'm off to look for more.
I have been Peter Gabriel's fan since (and especially then) Genesis era ... long, long ago ... too.
You dream vision makes me believe I must have seen a picture that might unconsciously come to you at night ... still cannot name it. Funny how all that weaves together in our minds, isn't it ?
The wall, the girl and the "forbidden" boy make me think of "The Secret Garden" by Frances Hodgson Burnett ...
I am one of those readers staying in the shadows - reading, admiring but not reviewing for that I am sorry - you are a really great writer :)) I do hope we will see updates of this story in particular, and soon. I'll be waiting ...

I was happy to see this again, and that you have been able to complete it. I had read it before, and missed it, but I understood how difficult it could be when faced with a wall. Hopefully, Michael's and the other boys' natures were brought to light in town, seeing as it was a home invasion and attack upon a betrothed couple. That could not have sat well with others, since it involved the sheriff's daughter.

I'd like to say I am sorry that Michael is dead but I'm not. :) Love Charlie! Enjoyed this story. Sad it is over.

As always it is such a treat to read one of your stories and this story although short did not disappoint. It's so amazing and beautifully written! I told myself that reading this story now that it was complete, would be my reward for finishing my summer semester of grad school and what a great reward it was! I wish I was half as talented as you in writing! Well done hon!

This is a very interesting story. It's different and a little scary. Thanks for writing.

Very exciting chapter! I love this story. It's so different.

Loved the drama, action and suspense. Michael certainly went off the deep end. isn't it funny (odd), how people who don't understand something react violently. 'Fear is the mind killer'...
I am glad Bella's father is so open minded and allows her to be with Edward. Bella continues her education and her path with the man she loves.
I am so glad you finished this! Thank you for writing.

Great story, but as always you make me wish for one more chapter, alas... I think this was the perfect ending. Thanks for sharing this story! xoxo Mina

Has Bella become like Edward because they have hung out so much together? His touches through the gloves...has he passed his 'condition' on to her? Michael is quite the ass!
| marigold123 chapter 4 . 7/15/2013
I love how Bella and Edward have such kindred souls...they know each other and feel each others pain and sorrow. Very sweet and a sad.

I loved the garden! It's like the Secret Garden. Bella's mind is wandering and she has become quite the daydreamer! Bella is so sweet and I love to hear her feelings and emotions.

I don't know the place in time this story is being written. It sounds as though it was many years ago? They are very formal. Bella knows she shouldn't talk to Edward, who is a stranger, and who seems to be poison. I wonder what Edward's condition really is and if he can control it? Edward was going to touch Bella's face... I chuckled as I saw how excited Mrs Newton was because Bella wanted to visit Michael. I am sure she was thinking marriage! Enjoying!
