Sorry thar rose had rough start, but that doesn't excuse her behavior

Fantastic update...I see the reasoning behind it. But now I really want to see how she talks to Rose. Rose has major daddy issues...

Secrets are like a cancer on your soul Bella. They eat you up. And in the end, the truth will out, as we already know. I feel somewhat bitter that Bella was repeatedly talked out of telling Edward - but I absolutely can understand why.

Wow - that was packed with lots of information and as usual beautifully evocative as well. I like how you showed us how Bella got to be the strong, slightly angry woman we met in Chapter 1. It was a good slow build and reveal.
My heart goes out to Rose, too. Makes her decision to not tell Bella about Edward coming back for her much more understandable. Did you tweak that part after all the angry reviews about her?
Thank you for posting early. I saw the update just after I got out of my morning shower and was able to read before work. It's SOOO hard to get through hours in the office when I know I have a treat from pattyrose waiting.

"Ellie has no father. why should Edward have his legacy?" Powerful words, all with devastating reprecussions...
Bella has been through so much to get where she is at now...and it is safe to say, so has Edward...it is the ironic thing about saying hindsight is 20/20... Because it is so easy to look back once you know how something has played out...one thing is true in ALL instances, no one can reverse time...once you have lived it, it's gone.
This story proves that ...and so much more...can't wait for the next chapters to unfold...Thank you for such an engrossing tale...

I can totally see why Bella is bitter but I continue to blame Rose for that. Yes, she had a rough childhood but she was emotionally manipulative with Bella and when she had chances to come clean she brow beat Bella into not pursuing telling Edward. If it were me, I'd cut her off. I know that's harsh but she played on Bella's insecurities to keep her away frm Edward and the truth.

Bella's daughter hadn't a father, because she was too chicken to put the big girl panties on. Let's face the facts, she was always able to find a reason not to tell Edward the truth. I'm sure, when Bella had been more proactive, the whole mess wouldn't be that big. But no, she loved the role as victim too much. edward's wrong doing doesn't excuse hers.
I can't stand women like Bella.

Yes we are indeed up.
It was 8:15pm here in Australian Central Standard Time, I had just finished dinner and cleaning up when I looked and what a surprise.
| Annie Butts chapter 21 . 5/10/2013
I hate Rose more now :(
She knew when Ellie was 6 months that Bella and Jake weren't going to happen. She knew Edward was divorced and Bella still wanted him, but she talked her out of it.. Rosie Rosie Rosie. You messed up big time :(
If I were Bella I don't think I could ever forgive her.

I saw B as a mother who simply wants her daughter to get to know her father. Didnt see any hint of her trying to bring E down. Elizabeth is simply the best of them.
Ah, I was actually hoping there's going to be RPOV when she lied to E back then, nevermind.
Excited for the next Now chapter !

I'm trying to feel sympathy for Rose and what she has done, but it is hard.
| susanreader chapter 21 . 5/10/2013
I'm afraid I don't understand where this chapter fits into the progression of the story.

“As soon as you ran out of that room, I knew”
Trouble was he left it 6 months before he tried to tell her “ what he knew”.
Risky behaviour at best, especially because (as far as the publicity went) he WAS engaged.
He said he will assign blame later, well let’s stop right there.
He could have easily come back to a complete change of staff at the pub, with no one even knowing who he was asking about.
He wouldn’t have Rose to blame. Who would he blame then?
Why doesn’t he just own up to the fact that he might have thought he loved Bella but he never acted like it.
He acted, like he told Emmett, that by not finding Bella he was saved from making a big mistake.
What exactly does that mean?
If Edward had found her and she was with Tyler, as he was told (she was wronged and had no reason to think he was coming back after all) but Edward apologized and she accepted him back, would that be the mistake?
It would have to be wouldn’t it, because if she wanted to stay with Tyler (maybe just because Tyler was a more honourable man) then Edward would be in the same position he was, when he said that to Emmett, in a cold and soulless marriage to Tanya and considering himself on the right track.
So really, for six and a half years he thought he was saved from a big mistake because he didn’t find Bella.
Turn over a new leaf if you can Edward but stop trying to make this out to be star-crossed lovers, the double crossing was done by you and you thought you did great until the years of loneliness caught up. xxx
