This chapter for the win! I am glad to see she is getting to a place where she can be a little more light hearted and free with him.
The flashback was sooooo good. As much as her freak out made me want to shank her, it was good to be able to see inside her head and find out her reasoning for doing what she did.
I think it is good for the both of them that she laid it all out on the table as far as what she needs from right now. I am glad that at the end of the chapter she gave him so hope that things won't always be as they are now. She can see that she is making progress and that when she is ready, Edward is the one she wants to move forward with.
Now all we have to do is wait for Bella to get herself to that place.

This was a really sweet chapter. I know they have a way to go, but I felt there was some sun shining through this one. I love this edward, he is handling this really well. Great update!

So she is listening to her therapist. So many people go but then continue to do what they've always done. And Edward is really giving her all the time she needs. Most wouldn't.

I think Edward is pretty swoony.

I think Bella is fixed enough. I'm not a therapist, but I've seen one on TV, this totally qualifies me. Also, I have enough curiosity for about fifty cats, I've dived (dove? diven?, let's go with dove) into the DSM-IV once or a dozen time, so I'm totally qualified. Although, it the spirit of true disclosure, I will admit I have ADD and an almost pathological in ability to wait, for anything. I take medication for that, but I take it in the morning, and by 1am, there is no more "no the world won't collapse if you don't get that right this instance" juice in my system.
So that's my expert mental health opinion. That I'm not at all qualified to give. But Edward is THE panacea. For everything. Although, I guess "everything" is inherent the the word panacea, so that might be redundant.)
Are you tired of my rambling yet? Because I kinda am.
What was I saying? Oh yeah, yay for progress. I can't wait for her to throw him down and ride him until can actually strum a freaking G-chord since he's lost all feeling in his extremities anyway. But in a totally, non-drunken/manic/avoidance kind of really hot way. I mean tongues will be battling for dominance, won't they?
PS: Love you!

Comments for both 11 and 12...
Edward's story is sad, but not as tragic for him personally as I was fearing with his hesitancy. But again, his intuition reigned supreme - he knew she'd assume she was his new charity case, and she did.
I'm thankful that she didn't just blindly kick him out, instead opting to let him touch her and speak to her.
The hair is just one more sign of her letting go of the dead weight of her past. It's symbolic, but right on.
Glad he isn't giving up, and glad she isn't trying to force him to. Lovely update!

Oh, holy hell - this is not gonna be good with Garrett. Crap...
At least Edward is back, but I want to know what's up in his world...
| HollBeth chapter 9 . 12/26/2011
Just right. He may not know her story, but he's very intuitive. He'll break through her wall eventually. The great thing is, she's already self-aware enough to know she shouldn't let Garrett's words and criticisms rule her. Now, we just need to get her to listen to herself and stop letting those notions creep in so she can see herself as Edward does.

Bless you for sharing her history with us before she shares it with Edward. I'm growing weary of stories with a secret that the author keeps from not only other characters but also the readers. For a long time. I understand if something can't be shared with another character for awhile sometimes, but we, the readers, can't exactly tell them, so the secret's safe with us, you know? Anyway...thank you so much for going ahead and telling us!
In the same vein, thank you for a "no-BS" Edward. Same argument as before - characters who never just say what they mean or ask what they want needlessly drag out a story. Loving this so much. Worried Peter or Garrett are going to mess with her AND mess with Edward.

GOOD FOR MAGGIE FOR STEPPING IN. GARRETT NEEDS TO FUCK OFF AND REALIZE WHAT HES GOING TO BELLA. SHE MAKES PROGRESS AND THEN HE STEPS IN AND FUCKS IT ALL UP AGAIN. EVEN THOUGH HE DIDN'T SAY OR DO MUCH TO AFFECT HER IN THIS CHAPTER, JUST SEEING HOW WELL HE IS DOING WAS ENOUGH. AND SCREW HIM. NOT LITERALLY. CAUSE I HATE HIM.

People watching FTW. But, really, it was sweet what Edward did with the mirror and helping her see herself clearly. He's kind of great...in that I really want to fuck his dick sorta way.
