| Sad for Bella chapter 2 . 5/3/2012
I think the writing is great and Bella and her feelings are very real. The only thing I am having a problem with is it feels like Edward gets everything in a way. He was the one with a family and a wife yet having an affair. He is the one that agreed with his lawyers to shut Bella out without even speaking to her. Yet he gets to keep his wife, sons, and now gets to have his daughter in his life too while Bella still loves him from a distance. It just doesn't seem fair... especially to Bella who did at least try to do the right things over and over. Maybe if she had love in her life (other than her daughter) it wouldn't feel so unfair, but she only has Jake who sounds like friends with benefits. As someone whose husband cheated, I just don't think Edward should get all that he has while it is really Bella and his wife that suffer the most. Now his wife will always have a reminder of his affair and Bella will always see that she wasn't loved enough to be his choice. Just my opinion. I swear this isn't a flame or anything... like I said... I just wanted to point out how unfair it seems.

Great chapter. Glad that Edward didnt act differently towards Bella and his daughter.

phew... my stomach was in serious knots the whole time reading... so glad Edward manned up the second he found out about lily... sad that Bella and Edward didn't somehow end up together (sorry, can't help it- I usually always root for them)...with that said it was kind of a perfect ending ... they will be wonderful parents for their daughter :)
thanks for sharing!

Psh I don't hate Bella. I feel sorry for her. Yeah people could say "Oh he was married, she should have known better." Well fuck that! HE should have known better. Dickweed. Gah sometimes I wish I was a lesbian :( Any way I love this story even though Edward is a prick and I'd like to shoot him in the nutsack.

My heart is breaking for Bella but it is what it is...

I'm so glad that you made this realistic and didn't go for a contrived B/E HEA. Even though this ending hurt, the other wouldn't have felt like the natural conclusion to this story. I'm also so glad that you had Bella find someone else to be with in Jake. I also like that she was so strong and strived to be so successful both as a mother and in her career.
I have to admit that I'm still so curious about so much, though. How did his wife react upon finding out? Does Bella find real love in the future? I know this is often how it happens, but it drives me nuts that he was the one who misled her for two months into believing he was available, but ends up being the one to be able to hold on to his love and family. Sigh.
Thank you for this. It was so distinctive and so painfully beautiful.

I loved this chapter. Glad Lily has her dad in her life. I loved the story.

I would've really liked something for Bella in the end. They both did wrong, but Bella got the short end of the stick. He gets everything. And he's a bastard, what she has to share her daughter with his wife now? Ugh. And in reality when his sons realize where their "sister" came from its just going to cause all sorts of problems. It would have been better for Bella to give her a new dad with less complications.

I think this turned out right for the situation. Great story and I really enjoyed reading.

Ugh.. I wish that they somehow ended up together, but then again, reality is what this story is about. Thanks so much for the shout out too!

Truth be told, I don't like this ending at all, but thanks for writing the story.
I'm glad it is only 2 chapters and I didn't invest a lot of time into it. i think it should not be labeled a Bella/Edward story it should be labeled a Bella story. There is virtually no Edward in it, it is just Bella's BPOV with her interactions with other people, including Edward. It's very misleading to put it in the Bella&Edward section.

This is a total fairy story! You Bella has got to be the biggest mug ever. Your Edward is the biggest douche too!
No reflection on your writing, that is exemplary. Your characters, however, make me want to commit murder.

I know cheating is wrong and they have paid for their mistakes but I feel so heartbroken for Bella she will never love anyone like she loves Edward and to have to live seeing him with his wife and thier children she will be the only one that will not belong I think she is very brave and your story is amazing xx

I just found this today and I have to say I really liked how you ended it. It's a bittersweet ending in a way but a good one Lily at least. I think you did a good job and took this story to a rightful, believable place. Kudos!
