I can only imagine how much Esme's and young Edward's lives had been different if she would have been able to tell Edward about the baby and not made that call to Carlisle. Enjoyed reading Esme's story.

WOW, thanks for the back story about how Little Edward came to be, and such.

Nice OT, as always. It's good to know the start of all.
| LizzyAtTheLake chapter 1 . 1/6/2012
It is interesting to read about their beginning
| LiRock chapter 1 . 1/6/2012
That was awesome!
| kiwisrock chapter 1 . 1/6/2012
Wow! Thanks for that!
I really feel for Esme but I like it that Edward was honest and insistent about his future! Really sucks for her though!
Explains a lot about Carlisle!
Dunno where you find the time for this but thanks so much again!

So sad for all concerned... Esme, for not being wanted by the man she idealized and was the father of her child; Masen, for not being part of his son's childhood; for Edward, for all that he had to grow through.
And yes, even for Carlisle, for not being the one *Esme* wanted, for being second best.
I have to wonder if things would have been different had she told Masen the truth, but I imagine Esme was probably right. Despite being a decent person - much better than Carlisle - Masen may have grown to resent her and the baby because he wasn't ready to deal with that kind of responsibility at the time, and that wouldn't have been good for any of them, either.
Really so sad. :(

That was a wonderful one-shot. :)
I loved that we got to find out more of the backstory between Esme and Edward Sr.
This kind of puts me in the mood to read "Offside" again. ;)
Thanks again for the wonderful one-shot. :D

Thanks for this outtake, liked to read how Esme's story began.
Would be really interesting to read Edward Masen's POV when he found out about his son.

These poor people are so messed up deep down inside themselves. If she'd had more self confidence she could have gone up and introduced herself at school instead of throwing her drunken self on him at a bar. So sad, because she didn't mean to, but everything she did screamed "I'm a slutty stalker chick". Kind of makes me understand why she went for Carlisle who took care of her but surely made every decision for her. I wondered the whole way through Offside why she was with him since she surely saw his true nature. And now you've just made me wonder about Carlisle's parents and their influence on him. And also about what happened with Carlisle and Esme before and after this little interlude. It must have been so sweet for him to come out of his own bubble to fall in love with her but then leave her for his game, I guess? Then he gave it all up for her and another man's child but resented it all along.

yeah,it was little odd to read 'Edward' and not think of...well,our apart,it was a lovely read,if a little we already knew of that,didn't we?
| AlexaBrandonCullen chapter 1 . 1/6/2012
Lovely outtake! I always wanted to know what happened with Esme and Edward. Poor Esme she felt forced to go to Carlisle

God, I really loved this story. I read the outtake and then started reading "Offside" again. I don't know how much of it I can take though as parts of it were truly heart-wrenching. Shay, will there be other outtakes?
