That was a great start. It's good to see Billy mobile and I presume that Jake is married and has a son? Can't wait to meet the Cullens and to see how Bella 'Van' gets on in her new home.

Bella has definitely had a rough life. I'm so glad she has met Billy. Such a nice man. I'm glad Bella accepted his offer. Great chapter! Look forward to more! Thanks so much!

I like the idea of this story. Can't wait to read more. Small editorial note: I think you meant "emaciated" not "emasculated" for how Bella looked. Hopefully she doesn't look very masculine. :3

Welcome back, Michele;-)
You're great as ever with this, even mentioning the no BDSM, it's still something that has got to me!
Can't wait for the next chapter

This is a tough Bella - not weak and clingy like some.
I like the start of this story! I will be around for the ride - thanx for the reading fun!

Well I was a little surprised by the sexual abuse part. You may want to put something at the front chapter since folks get really freaked by that.
Very interesting set up. I'm curious how Bella will let her guard down? Where will she stay? Will she use her real last name? So many questions that I can't wait to read this! I don't normally read from the first chapter post because I know I'm greedy like that! It will be an exercise in restraint for me!
I'd love to see more exploration of Bella's crazy mood swings. Those peeks at vulnerability interspersed with her misplaced anger and defensiveness. Well, not misplaced but rather learned through experience I suppose.
I'm so excited you are writing another story and SO look forward to watching it unfold. Thanks!

Your are pure genius. Bella has had a crappy life. I hope this new town turns out to be good for her. I'm sure it will. I loved it.
