Such an interesting premise here! I was waiting to start until a few chapters posted, so when I saw there were now 2, here I am. I don't want to think that it will be over in just 6 chapters now! I love this type of plot and situation, so I'm really looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

That was so good! I have a theory! I wonder if Edward allowed himself to be caught! I am wondering if Alice saw that Edward need to go to the institute...so he drank human blood and allowed himself to be caught! I know this is a suspense...but I am hoping Bella and Edward end up together in the end since she is so intrigued by him.
But then I am wondering if Edward did allow himself to be caught, so he could find out the secrets of the institute...and then the vamps can attack!
I can't wait to see if I am right on either of my guesses LOL...I am probably waaaaaay off base LOL!

Gah! You have me totally captivated! This story is so fascinating. I feel like Bella interviewing the vamps while I read, I'm reeling to learn more!

This is just so beautifully written - what a struggle for Bella as she tries to keep up the boundaries between herself and her beautiful-on-so-many-levels client. So, is he mind-reading or is he just that sensitive and insightful or...I'm crazed for this already and can't wait for more! Much as I love the art and talent of a succinct story (6 chapters, really?) I confess to wanting so much more - are you immune to begging? lol Just brilliant, lovely one!

He knows more than he is letting on, doesn't he? And I am fascinated by the way Bella keeps referring to him like a savage-almost animal creature. Although, based on their research most vampires they study are kind of feral.

I also find it interesting that though Edward is a drinker of human blood, that (apparently) there is still a family out there that he misses. So, since it isn't the shared diet of animal blood that enables them to form bonds beyond what is 'normal' for vampires, how do they do it? Heh, and he knows he has Bella's intellect hooked, doesn't he?
I like this: "Dangerous creature, indeed." Funny how, as sharp as Bella is, as cognizant of the danger of getting too close as she also is, that she CHOOSES not to see what is happening. We can justify anything we want to, can't we? Bella knows she's lonely and wants someone to to share with, so she justifies that sharing of intellect, beyond what she has with any other subject, as part of her research. But it's ok, because she's supremely aware of the danger, right?
Also, since Edward is so different here, I have to wonder if his ability to mindread Bella is different as well? Or if it's just that he's linked to her, because it does really appear as if he can see her. Or maybe he has a different ability altogether?
Ruh-roh: "I wondered if I would allow myself to recognize that lie, as well." It's much harder to keep doing what you aren't supposed to when you acknowledge it, especially if you're an ethical person. Not impossible, just more difficult. I wonder what Edward thinks about Bella, about her motivations?
Bella thought that Edward was a dangerous creature, but this one is equally dangerous: "He was like no vampire the Institute had ever studied—an anomaly, an enigma—and that's why he fascinated me." Fascination. That's an emotion, a feeling, that tends to morph into other feelings, yeah?
Really, really love this! If you're only doing 6 chapters, I'm going to cross my fingers for really looooong chapters! :)

Just checked out your profile. No wonder I like this story. Your story Major Misconduct was awesome. Definitely sticking around for this one. Only six chapters? Bummer.

Very new and creative. Not easy to do with the vast number of E&B fanfics out there, and certainly a delightfully new take on vampire Edward and human Bella. I like it!

| edaddict3254 chapter 2 . 7/24/2012
your story has totally captivated me!
i can imagine that edward is quite the enigma to someone like your bella. how she is not more tempted to lower the screen of the barrier is beyond me. lol!
i am eagerly waiting for more!
thank you for writing!

Very interesting premise. I don't think I've ever read a fic where Bella is the scientist studying captive vampires. I also love the way you're writing Edward. Though Edward (canon-ish) is usually sort of remote by nature, this Edward is simply cool and dismissive. I like it.
So Bella is trying to find out what makes him tick, what makes him different from all the others. And apparently, that's not just Bella's impression either, as the other vampires treat Edward differently as well. I'm very interested myself as to why that is.
But just from the little interaction Bella and Edward had at the end there, I find myself wondering just who is studying who.
I think this is going to be terrific, and I find myself pouting already that it's only to be 6 chapters, LOL. :)

Extra long chapters make me happy! Seriously wondering how he can 'see' her. I'm hooked.

| edwardfan111 chapter 2 . 7/24/2012
Wow this is fascinating. I was very excited to see you have a new story! You are as ever one of my favourite authors, love your work. Very interested to see where this goes. Not too happy to see our poor Edward in a cage :(.
Happily waiting for the next chapter.

I can tell I'm going to want this to play out over MANY chapters! What a fascinating dance you have them involved in!
