It has taken 4 years for Edward to appreciate Bella! 4 years! He has mistreated every character in this story but none as much as Bella. He has disregarded her, disrespected her , hurt her & she forgives him every time!
"The Way I love You" must refer to Bella's heroic sacrificial forgiving love of Edward! The way Edward treats those he loves is terrible!
Thank goodness after cheating many many times over months on his wife & cheating on the love of his life Edward has decided to stop cheating! I hope he does! He's certainly high risk -not the least because he was never called into account for his cheating & paid no penalty for it! Nor has he attempted to right his wrongs to Bella.
The biggest twist was the revelation that Alice has serious mental health issues -a shocker! It changes everything about the story!
Audrey is the focus of the story not Edward/Bella. But she means different things to the characters.
For Alice, Audrey is her savior. She saves her miserable love existence. At last, Alice finds someone to love & she fights to get help & parent her child. Given Alice's severe issues & social isolation, it was unlikely she would ever recover & find someone willing to have a child with her. Audrey was the answer to her prayers! She got her reason to live & has a coparent to help support & raise her! Audrey to Alice is all benefit, no downside!
Edward's situation could not be more different. Audrey existence forced him to reveal his infidelity to Bella [he hadn't told her!]. He was looking forward to being permanently rid of Alice. He did not want a child at that time; he wasn't ready. He absolutely did not want a child with Alice. He wanted to celebrate & enjoy Bella, the love of his life, footloose & fancyfree before starting a family with the woman he loved.
Audrey could have cost him Bella, his soulmate. She might not have forgiven him & walked out. Audrey could have cost him everything he held dear. She was the "biggest mistake of his life" & a permanent source of pain for him & Bella as the living symbol of his infidelity to Bella. They can love, love, love her & yet hurt because of her.
She cost him dearly financially & precious time with Bella. He will deal with Alice & her messes forever because of Audrey. He neglected Bella & refused to go out & have fun with her because of Audrey. They lose every weekend together because of Audrey.
Edward & Bella had to eat dirt because of Audrey. They correctly saw it was their duty to love her & care for her but they ate alot of dirt!
Even if Audrey is a winsome, easy child, she is also a child : messy, stinky, teething, potty training, vomiting, colic, croup, bratty, cranky, sleeplessness, expensive, terrible twos, adolescence. She will be less adorable & less willing to hang with parents as she gets older. She is likely to have behavior & emotional problems. If Edward keeps declaring to her that she holds the place that should rightfully be Bella's in his heart, there will be no end of trouble with her.
Plus she has a nutty mom they must deal with & might inherit mom's family history of mental illnesses & dysfunction!
If they wanted beautiful delightful babies, they could have had all they wanted themselves-even more beautiful because Bella would be the mom. They would never have the pain of sharing her with other parents or sending her away & missing most of her childhood. This is not even 2nd best.
So Audrey was win-win for Alice but lose-lose for Edward. News of her arrival had to be devastating!
Kudos to Edward & Bella for sucking it up, eating dirt, making lemonade out of lemons!
They've paid & will continue to pay a very high price for Edward's infidelity!
To their credit, they've made the best of their bad situation, fulfilled their duty to Audrey & are able to love & enjoy her.
Edward needs to fulfill his duty to Bella. He should spend the rest of his life devoted to her. She has been an angel -and he has been an ass to her.
Life is bittersweet.

this is what i have been waiting for. THANK YOU edward for realizing what an ass you have been and how you probably don't deserve bella but she loves you and wants you and how lucky you are that she feels that way. two sentences really stood out to me "I could never take her for granted, knowing what she had gone through and put up with." and "I now know the difference between true love and feelings of love." that was all i needed to hear.
and a chapter where its about them :) great chapter!
