What a wonderfully written story. I loved it! I also love what a big fan of other stories you are, as noted at the bottom of your chapters. I take authors I like and read their favs. This is how I found you, so I'm so glad for the many. recommendations. I know it's odd to be reading all of these so many years after they have been written, but I still find my self ceaselessly awed by the great talent here on the site. I love how people interpret and then reinterpret the characters over and over. Even done by the some author, I find the character relationships are so different. It's fascinating to me, and admittedly, addictive. So, thank you for the awesome story. I will probably finish all of your stories now that I have tasted them and move on to some of your favs. Thanks for another awesome journey.

I'm loving this story! Bella as a carefree spirit is so wonderful! I like how wordily she is. Tanya in her pearls is just perfect. Thanks for writing this! What fun!

A great Bella!

Unsurprisingly this story is great to read! I like carefree Bella and how she infected stiffened Edward. I'm glad Carlisle was perceptive! He was so horrible to his son, how can he press him in a unloved relationship?

I'm so happy Edward got closure with his parents. First it was great that Eloise was Emmett' children's nanny, it's like a piece of Edward still in his life and vice versa. I'm so happy they kept in touch and visited with his good friend. Also so happy that not only did Edward get closure with his parents but that forgiveness was given before Edward's father dies.
I've said my piece along the way, my way of saying thank you for sharing your story with me. I hope you still read your reviews as I'd like you to know how much you keeping your work here so that readers like myself get to find them and enjoy your story telling gift.

Great ending for these two. A happy middle ground. Edward got to finish his education, found something he could contribute in this world, being a PHD and teaching political ethics got a little bit
of the hero to shine through. And Bella got to keep on being that wanderer during the off school times.

The new ultra nice RV is a nice solution. I'm happy with how Bella explained her money and Edward let her know he never doubted her.

I love how Edward followed his heart, his own choice this time and went to Bella. It was sad seeing him leave what little attachment he had in Texas. I'm not sure if he sold the loft to Alice or was renting it.
I would have liked for him to keep it, since he felt so at home there. It was painful that he also turned his back on his mother too. I'm curious if she did know. I hope that Bella will meet Edward half way now, that she'll rein in some of her wandering at some point so they can have a life. I felt badly that Edward left Emmett, I hope it's not for forever.

Wow, that chapter was suspenseful and dramatic and I was cheering Edward on. His father deserved
his son's wrath. Again, a detail like asking Eloise if his mother would be out of the house because he wanted to spare her the show down. Awesome chapter.

That letter, doesn't say that Vicki agreed to anything. Perhaps her mother said or did something in addition to Edward's father to make Vicki stay away. Perhaps like Bella leaving, she did it to protect Edward's future too.
| BellaTesoro chapter 16 . 2/13/2016
wow, that parting love scene was yet again breathtakingly beautiful and so sensual. It almost feels right her leaving, him knowing she would, should and could. She's right she can't fit his life and she's not willing to change nor does he expect she ought to. But I think they both wish they could and should. I'm dying to see how this plays out.

Good for Edward walking out on a people and a position he really knows he doesn't want to be part of. I hope Bella doesn't start playing the martyr and says she needs to get going because she doesn't want to cause him any problems with his family and future. I'm also wondering if Bella has already been approached by his father. I just know that Eloise knows that his father had much more to do with Vicki leaving. And I think that Edward is going to wear that white towel cape again as a grown man and become the kind of attorney that helps victims.

I love this Emmett. He's a good friend to Edward, Rosalie was pretty sweet too. I like that Bella gave Rose the baby gifts. I can't wait to see the fallout of the parents meeting Bella. And Bella's last line saying don't do it for anyone else but himself. Right on Bella.
| BellaTesoro chapter 13 . 2/13/2016
I wonder if Edward's father isn't the one that went to Vicki first? Maybe he threatened her and paid her off somehow? Bella's response and support hearing Edward's story was just right.
