Stupid Emmet. His loss is Edward's gain. Thanks for sharing.

You perfectly capture how being the innocent one in a betrayal does not - at first - allow you to feel any better than than the person who feels guilty. And you absolutely nail how humiliating facing other people's behaviour can be as the consequence of someone else's act of selfishness.
Then there's this:
"I feel him where he is and where he isn't and where he just was."
Beautiful writing; and in one small sentence, we know who is going to be ok and who is going to leave the more lasting mark.

Believey, this was so amazing. The writing style felt different from your previous works, but your trademark heart and soul and feels and realness were there as always. Of course this won the judge's and public votes. How could it not?

wow that was super complicated and brave of Bella
Because I'm disappointed in Edward and I don't know if I could get past that
I know life is like this sometimes, murky water

I did not read any other story in the contest. After reading yours, I can see why it won. It's that good.

This story is so amazing to me. A 12000 word count limit, and yet you manage to create true, realistic hurt, quiet heartbreak and then give them an ending that really feels sincerely happy and hopeful. So many moments in this say everything without explicitly spelling it out, and I *love* that.
I've missed your words, Believey. I can never have enough of them.

Wonderful! I enjoyed this immensely. I love the strings tied on their pinkies at the end...they both deserve the happiness that will come from loving one another.
