So glad Garrett got punched in the face! Lets just hope that when Edward shares his secret with Bella that we don't want to punch him. Also glad that Bella didn' t go home with Sam, can't wait for the next chapter!

I'm must confessed, I was worried. I mean, your disappearance on twitter and then the drinking and Sam and then Garret and Katie and then he's in the bathroom and then I remember you saying, "Oh twilly, I you won't die, js" But if she...if she...then twilly WOULD die! But then there was Edward. *Sigh* thank god for Edward. (I actually have this thought a lot) And I know he has shit, I've been dying to find out, so this weekend. Yay!

Oh, I love your story, Liv... it's heart felt and real... But I understand about the apprehension...

This was perfect.
I love the contrast in her reaction to Edward fighting to how she reacted to Garrett fighting in the previous flashback. The intent and emotion behind the fighting was so different for them both but I love that it was reflected in her reaction.
Even though she kept thinking she was just going to go home to bed after drinking I was worried for a little moment but she does seem determined to make things better for herself.
Garrett deserved to be hit and more for even daring to show up there but there was one sentence in particular that made me want to see him "accidentally" find bleach in his syringe - "I just figured you'd finally gotten over whatever was wrong with you and we could start over again," - dude needs to die for that. All joking aside that was an asshole thing to say, let alone for him to think it.
I think where you ended this was perfect, like the cliffhanger you have when you aren't having a cliffhanger. Any other place to end it would have been wrong - this was just so wonderful.
I love this story (and you) so hard.
*Super loud, lip smacking forehead kiss*

Straight and to the point this Edward is. I like it. Bella needs someone like that in her life. It can't be easy to try and help someone else see in themselves what you see, that has to come from within.
I like Edward's approach though, and this Bella has such a good heart. It almost makes it harder to know that she is in such a dark place when she is a good person.
Alright, caught up on all your stories. The angst of this one and the most recent chapter of Dirt Roads may be just enough to push me to FINALLY getting around to reading The Cellar - but first I guess I should get some work done.

There are always so many parts of your chapters that I want to comment on. Bella killed me when she said that the worst feeling was the feeling of hope. I seriously want to junk punch Garrett for making her lose hope in everyone. Such a horrible way to go through life but people do it all the time.
"It had always amazed me how the lyrics and beat of a song could sweep someone back to another time and place. Like you've jumped in a time machine and teleported to the back seat of your boyfriend's car in high school, or the time you did something really crazy with a group of your close friends. A song can make you feel bashful and shy, giddy and silly, and completely and utterly destroyed."
That is what I have always loved about music. Period. End of file.
Hmmm People watching - just what does this wonderful Edward have in store for her. Oh by the way - Edward in a beanie - ugh. I just can't even.
Onto the next chapter - just as you tell me you are almost done with chapter 10. Ok sorry this ended up being so long. :)

Yay for progress, boo for "friends." All in good time I suppose.
"I felt wild and desperate and terrified at the thought of him walking out of that door, out of my life." There is nothing like that feeling to spur someone into action - even if they have no idea what the action should be or where it will take them. You just know you have to SOMETHING to stop them from leaving or you will be worse off than you were before.
I'm glad that she was able to admit that she needed him in her life but also didn't try to jump into something that she is no way ready for.
Ok -onto the next chapter!

I can't remember if I reviewed the other day so If I did, then enjoy. If not, then I blame my kids. They are always a safe blame for forgetting things lol. Really, Dayum, why can't we just kidnap Rob for a day and go people watching! (oh yeah, cause we wouldn't have time-with all the other stuff I wanna do to him) Have a great day. Just so you know- This Is Really Good Work Girl! Love ya

This is really well written. It's going to be great to see where they go from here. Thank you for this .

I really hope Edwards words gradually sink in with Bella. The boy talks alot of sense.

Aww, how sweet is he! And 'I'll be here, waiting, for you' *sigh* I'm totally taking that as more than just waiting while she dresses. Love how this story is going.

Great job with this chapter. I like watching him help her build self worth. That's a great way to help a friend build self esteem and shows her he's willing to stick with her.
Can't wait for the next update.
| oh werd chapter 9 . 12/5/2011
Ah, Bella shoulda understood people watching, she suggested it during her whole "let's be friends" spiel. Yup. Your beta shoulda caught that. Damn you beta. I guess I'll just have to offer my services. Because, you know, as a friend, I just wanna help you. And this is definitely not a ploy to see updates early, nuh-uh. I'm being totally unselfish here.
Oh and by the way? I was ALWAYS motherfucking Luigi.

*She has a banner!*
Ok so the "too early to be alive" line made me lmao (and I'll be stealing that, thank you very much) and Edward checkin out her ass made me swoon. I'm a sucker for a horny gentleman. I guess that's why I loved Twilight so much in the first place!
Lovin it chick!
