Wow you write about a haboob and use the correct term. I live in Arizona and have been in many a haboob none that lasted 3 days though. They are beautiful in a way and again your descriptive language is spot on. When I get your updates I am torn to I rush to read or wait until I have time to savor. Thanks hikingurl!!! Another wonderful chapter.

I am loving this story. It's very well written and I can't wait for each new chapter. I don't think Alice would have stayed quiet when Bella was kidnapping her unless Bella had news about Jasper. I hope Edward can come across the girls soon.
Thank you for your kind review. I am so glad you are enjoying my story. Chapter 16 will be posting soon.

I have to admit I had been avoiding this story despite my interest when it first appeared. I'm not a patient person myself and wanted the story to be a bit more developed before I took the plunge. I'm glad I dec to take it now. I have lots and lots of theories and speculations and more than a few things I turned out to be right about so far. I'm greatly enjoying this. It sort of combines some of the feel of other stories I love like the giver, the hunger games, even the village and quite a few others. I'm loving your twist on it and of course E & B are my favorite fanfictionthis characters. Thanks for sharing this and I'm not anxiously and impatiently awaiting the next chapters!
Thank you for your kind words and your interest in my story. I understand your relectance to start a new story, especially from a new author, until that story is well underway. I have been disappointed so many times with stories that I became invested in, only to see them abandoned and never finished. I told myself that I would finish The Protector or if I couldn't then I would summarize the story and not leave people hanging.
The next three chapters are with my beta and I am already working on chapter 18, so we are getting there. I hope I can manage to still surprise you. Those are some amazing stories you've mentioned and some of my favorites too. I was in Los Angeles at the American Library Association meeting when they announced The Giver as the Newbery winner. There was a lot of cheering! Thank you again for joining me.

hmmm Unless the CO is helping Hunter with everything for a reason, sending E after them is really cruel if you think about it. Come back?? Beginning to wonder why E would come back..... although his parents will still be there..... hmmm
Lots of secrets, I know, but things will become clearer soon. Thanks for reading!

I wish Bella could have stayed. It sounds like she is in some training of her own. I can't wait to see what happens. Great job...thanks so much!!@
You are welcome. Thank you for reading and reviewing!

Glad Hunter gave him some answers. hmm the Bella thing at the end has me wondering. Is she in Ranger training or is she being punished for asking too many/the wrong types of questions. hmmmm
Thanks for reading and reviewing. More info coming soon!

Such a good chapter. It leaves even more questions. Hunter wasn't as forthcoming as he could have been. Maybe next time? Lol. Thank you
Thank you for letting me know you enjoyed the chapter. Hunter still has a lot of secrets!
Date: 03 Sep 2016 12:44 AM Title: Chapter 12
Oh? The same? Sounds intriguing. That was a wonderful chapter, but instead of answers I have more questions... Regarding Bella, jasper, Emmett and their world. I look forward to more. I hope he questions Hunter again.
The pace will start picking up quickly. Lots to reveal. Thanks for reading. I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter.
Date: 28 Aug 2016 1:53 AM Title: Chapter 11
What a chapter. This does leave the feeling that a major change is about to happen. Nothing discussed yet covers the drop in population for their valley. Or whatever happened to Bella. So many questions about...well everything. But I am looking forward to reading what you have in store for all of us. Thanks.
Chapter twelve has more answers, about their world, about Jasper and about Bella. Thank you for reading!

Glad E is getting the training he needs along with information. Wonder if Hunter is going to allow Bella back into his life again. I'm sure he had something to do with her staying away.
Thank you for reading and for your help with my posting problems! Lots of info coming up in Chapter 12.
Date: 27 Aug 2016 3:34 AM Title: Chapter 11

Thank you for your lovely review! I'm glad you are enjoying my story. Chapter 12 is almost ready.
