He's always liked her? I kind of thought so, but this seems like a strong confirmation.
Sad about her Mother... this girl needs to be loved badly. Somehow 'for now' doesn't seem like enough. I really hope it's not 'for now' at all.

Loved it, thank you :)

Oh, OH. Did Renee have an affair with Jacob Blue, did she love him? And then refuse to run off with him, or pass him off for Charlie? And then Jacob ran off, and died in Memphis. Was Renee pregnant, and Jacob's baby died, born to soon, too small? And does Charlie know any of it? Even if I'm wrong, if any part of that is right...oh Lord, what a mess.
And Bella heard it all, even if she didn't understand the why, she understood all the pain in it. If there's any truth to any of what I think, she'll dig and find it out. If it is true, and she asks Naomi, I wonder if Naomi would tell her the truth?
If Naomi remembers Edward from all those years ago, it's possible she knew why Bella was hurt by him. Maybe why he's stayed away.
I'll say it again though, I don't know why he's here now but I sure am glad. For Bella's sake. There's a whole lot of hurting and anger rolling around between Renee and Naomi and maybe Charlie too. If it all comes out, and with Renee dying, Bella will need somebody. And I sure an liking Edward as that somebody.

So now that Edward has went and pissed Charlie off, is Bella gonna have to duck him, to aviod being seen with him? If Charlie decides to get pissed at her (again), he might kick her out of the office.
Man, that is a predicament. So she thinks Edward is JUST there to be a smartass, since Paul made him get a job there? I dunno about that, he seems to be awfully concerned with Bella. I just can't leave that alone, after all these years of nothing. Why now? And why nothing all these years, why Tanya? No, I'm not a bit impatient, LOL.
It's not right that Bella should have to do the worrying about supporting or caring for her mama. *sigh* But she isn't the first kid to be in that position, sure won't be the last, bad as it sucks.
O.O Edward standing on her porch roof waiting to be let in is just...I don't know. And this: "He looked at me for a while, and we were just like that, just looking at each other and the music played. Whatever this was, it felt serious, at least to me." It does to me too. That's what I don't get. That it seems serious, all of a sudden.
Charlie bringing home furniture, drunk. I wonder if since Bella was trying to do something for him at work (as far as he knows) if maybe he wasn't trying to do something for her, at home?
It's a good thing he was drunk off his ass, or he would flipped put at Edward just "showing up", at 4 in the morning. After he sobers up and thinks about it, he still might.
Oh Bella: "She had said not to tell and I hadn't, even though it ate at me, I couldn't face it any more than she could…her having cancer. I was scared...so I pretended it was nothing cause the doctor told her most times it wasn't…and I did nothing, just like she told me...nothing...it was my fault. Charlie hadn't killed her. I had." That girl is going to tear herself apart about this. *sigh*
God, Edward is being so damn swet and caring to Bella. It's like she really means something to him. For her sake, and maybe his too, I hope she does. It would be about time that Bella is first with someone. But more than that, I hope Edward gets sto STAY with her.

I don't want to feel as hopeless as Edward makes it seem (about their future)... I can't. I have to think something good can come out of all this suffering and sadness. Ty for writing. xo

He "ignored" her cause it was easier for him, he's liked her and I wonder if that feeling even at 13 gave him fear. Now, he's not denying it cause of Viet Nam and I think with him speaking of no future at all is his fear of dying over there like so many others are.

Poor Renee! With it that widespread and only weeks to live, she must be in excruciating pain! How she has suffered quietly.
So I did move over, and he put his arm around me and I put my head on his shoulder and it felt like Jesus had showed.
Love your words in this chapter and the way she absorbs him.
Great info on Renee/Charlie back story and how he came back from the war different.
Wonder what went on with him for, what, six years, when he acted like she didn't exist? He said he had his reasons. Does that mean he's almost 19?
Also curious why he says there's no future with him. Lots of questions you're leaving here dangling!

This one starts off hopeful with Edward sharing music, his warmth, his presence.
Lastly, Edward rescues Bella & her mother fr Charlie's cruelty, becomes Bella's comfort in the hospital.
