I think that this chapter was perfect. You let them make love but not everything was perfect. With Bella still being a little scared, it made it more real. So many of these stories end with incredibly happy endings, which is what I like best by the way, but life is not like that. This is a happy ending but with a little more reality to it. Perfect. I will miss these two.

They should have a boy. A good name for the baby would be Jonathan (god has given, gift from god). Partial to marry before baby is born & don't go back to work until after. But if waiting on marrying then go back to work before... Ok there is all of my opinions. Anxiously awaiting for this to be updated! Now I'm moving on to another of your stories!

Migraines awful! I've suffered with them for the better part of 20 years.
I hope no more "running" for Bella. In fact I think these two should go ahead and marry no matter the length of time they've been together. It feels right in their case.

Absolutely love when stories have Emmett in more serious types roles & still be a good ball. Love that Emma's so taken with Bella already! Love that Bella's about to open up to Edward - can't wait to read her story.

It's so sad to see the two of them struggling line that. Of course it wouldn't be realistic if things were perfect the second she came home. Hopefully with Edward finally knowing what James did to her will help him know how to help her get past it.
It is a tough choice. It I think Edward needs a boy. I have no clue about names.

That was a great chapter. Although very heart breaking in some spots, there was still that little bit of humor to break it up. I think that Edward and Bella should have a little boy. She lost Mattie, so I think a little boy would be perfect. As for his name, Um maybe Christian, Daniel, or Alexander Dante. The last one was my dad's name. Can't wait for the next update.

Seeing Bella like that just breaks my heart. At least she has a big family to support her through her recovery.
Poor Emma. Thank you for making her a real child and not some fantasy one that we know does not exist. A normal child would have reacted the way you had her react. A fantasy child would have just been the perfect child who loves and supports and wants for nothing. Reality is a good thing in fics :)
I think they should have a boy. Emma is so used to being Daddy's little girl that I think it will be easier for her to share her daddy with a boy.

Loved the chapter. It will definately take some time but hopefully they both are getting better and stronger, day by day. As for Emma, she's still so young. It's hard to understand the effects of what happened. She'll get there too. Can't wait for the next update.

This was fantastic and made them all realize that "the norm" has been altered. I wish my hubby would figure this out. Would love for them to have a girl, let Bella keep her Mattie as the only boy. I believe Edward would be the manliest of men if he was surrounded by girlie stuff.

Holy crap! I had tears in this chapter. Loving your story. Can't get enough of it. Sorry for the lack of reviews. Your writing is awesome though. You can feel the emotions coming out of the characters in this chapter. I'm preparing myself for the next one.
Date: 10 Jun 2012 10:10 AM Title: Chapter 26
Brilliant! I love this story! I feels so real when I read it. I was so scared for Bella. Ad a baby! How awesome! Hopefully that will help Bella recover from her ordeal!! Thanks for the update. More soon please! xx

very sweet chapter and got an little teary eyed. I had a good laugh at the convo between Edward and Alice:
"You're welcome, teach," she giggled. "Give my best friend lovin' and orgasms."
"Say goodbye, Alice," I said flatly.
"Goodbye, Alice," she chirped before she hung up the phone.

Loved this chapter very heartfelt. I liked this part:
"She's gone," he said morosely.
"She'll be back," Esme said from her spot by the bacon. "Think of it this way…you have a free babysitter while she's with her. You and Bella can spend some quality time together. If you know what I mean." Her brows waggled and she wiggled her hips suggestively.
"MOM!" Edward snapped. "I can't believe you!"
"What? I know you're not a virgin, Edward," Esme said, arching a brow. "Your daughter is a huge indicator of that."
"Ugh, I need to…Bella, let's leave the kitchen before I permanently become a tomato. Bad mother. Very bad. You should be in timeout," Edward admonished. He laced his fingers through mine, leading me down to the basement.
I also loved the end of the chapter.

I'm so happy they are together again and are expecting. Bella needs some light in her life after the ordeal she just went through. I'm glad James is I ally dead. I've never hated someone as much as I hated him! I wish he suffered more for why he I'd though.

Well, I started this on FF and have followed you here. This is one emotional chapter...poor Bella. She's been through hell and back. I really hope that she has a therapist here now, because what she went through and the drugs she's on require good medical care. Hopefully Edward will help her heal like she wants him to, and they will be able to deal with the baggage of her past with James.
Sounds like Edward could use some healing too, so I'm looking forward to these two getting to know each other and developing a relationship!

Ahhhh really. Cliff hanger much. I am soo glad that Bella is okay, a baby is the best way that this could have ended. Well James being tortured like he did bell or worse would have mad it he best but I'll take this too. Please Not too long i need more

You had me in tears reading this chapter. Edward and Emma both tore me up. I really lost it when Charlie joined the Cullens. He was so sweet with Emma.
I'm so happy Bella is found and James is dead. I see a long road to recovery for her.
Date: 08 Jun 2012 8:42 AM Title: Chapter 26
That James is one sick man! Is it wrong that I'm glad he's dead? It was hard to read about the abuse he inflicted on Bella, but knowing from the last chapter that he was dead made it possible. Thanks for not dragging it out.
Thanks also for writing Bella and Edward as such strong characters.

Oh my God, I don't think I even breathed while reading that. I'm finally catching up on my updates, but I am totally dreading the next chapter. Okay, they'll get through this, they'll get thru this. I'll just keep repeating that!
Date: 08 Jun 2012 5:52 AM Title: Chapter 26
did you give us one baby or two hmm. That might be another twist hehe. I am so glad you updated. It was a hard chapter to read but at least james is dead. I wonder what will happen with ashleigh. I take it you are no longer posting to the other site. ff
Only one baby....apparently, the chapter was added twice when I copied and pasted it.
And no. I'm not posting on ff.net anymore. All of my stories violate the TOS. So, I'm here and at AO3.
Thank you for reviewing!
Date: 08 Jun 2012 4:23 AM Title: Chapter 26
Ahhhhhhhh!!!! and all the cigarette burns... jeesus. That was an intense chater, but in some ways i think her recovery and seeing her struggling with her life with Edward will be more intense and harder to stomach.
A BABY!! how will Emma react to the news? How will she cope with Bella's abduction?
Can you say clusterfuck?
Date: 08 Jun 2012 4:20 AM Title: Chapter 26
This chapter really made me cry and man I feel so bad for bella. I'm really glad that she survived the ordeal and that she stayed strong through what james did to her. I love the end result. I can't wait to see what emma's reaction will be to the news and what they tell her with what happened to bella. I'm can't wait for the next chapter. you did awesome with this story.
Date: 08 Jun 2012 1:12 AM Title: Chapter 26
Yay! A baby! Thank you for not dragging out her time with James, he's where he needs to be, Hell!
Love your stories and glad that the ffn drama didn't take you away from those of us who stop whatever we're doing to read your stories.
Crazy mad love for you and the merry mix of stories you share!!! Until next time
God, I couldn't imagine dragging Bella and Edward through another chapter of angst. that would be downright cruel. Thank you for reading and reviewing!
Date: 07 Jun 2012 5:09 AM Title: Chapter 10
This story has been so beautifully written and true to life, especially this chapter. I say this as someone who has buried their own baby (my first son, Scott, was stillborn 5 years ago), you've captured the spirit of the day beautifully. Thank you for not shying away from talking about Mattie, for letting Bella grieve for him even though it had been 3 years since she lost him, and for Edward suggesting to have a memorial service and burial for him, even though there was no physical part of him there to bury.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Woman, I was just an sobbing wreak yesterday after reading this chapter that I could not even review. I was so heartbroken for both Edward and Emma that I could barely breath. You just know how to get me to cry. Thanks. Something I just need it. I hope that Bella is fighting to get back to Edward and Emma and the rest of her FAMILY. This chapter was truely amazing.
Date: 06 Jun 2012 1:05 PM Title: Chapter 25
GEEEEEZ! Way to leave us all dangling - what a heart wrenching chapter. I am not looking forward to the next one but have to know how she escaped, your writing brings everything to life so I can only imagine what you have instore for us hahaha. Loving this story as always - thank you for sharing it (now I found you here :) ).
Date: 06 Jun 2012 11:15 AM Title: Chapter 25
As sad as the situation with Bella is, I really enjoyed this chapter. It was very well written and seemed pretty realistic. By pretty realistic I mean exactly what would happen if this were an episode of Criminal Minds. I am well aware that Criminal Minds is fictional television, but the writers do their research and have hired a consultant from the BAU who says that the show is very similar to real life. So I guess technically your story is actually pretty realistic if I'm comparing it to Criminal Minds. You've obviously done your research. And FYI, Criminal Minds is my favorite show, so your story being compared to it is high praise coming from me.

I was worried that the update system from this site wouldnt work, but it did. Wow emotional rollercoaster all over it. You give the mexican and latin america soap operas a run for their money with your plots woman! Hey I was in polyvore.com the other day and saw wedding bands with the music symbols and i tought of this story and their wedding. you should check them out! :-)

OMG! I cried this whole chapter! I'm such a sap! I knew it was coming and it still made me cry. I hope Ashleigh fries just for being a dumb ass. Thanks for the warning for the next chapter. I'll be sure to have Kleenex handy before I read it. Can't wait to read it.
