OOH!  I saw this coming at the end of the last chapter.  I don' think I like you right now, you've made me cry.  JUST KIDDING! I still love this story and think you are doing a great job telling. But please, don't let them be apart to long.  I don't think my tear ducts could handle it. And is Edward going to really pissed that his family knew and didn't tell him!  That should be really interesting.

I hope it doesn't take long for you to update again. I'm very anxious to see what happens to Gianna. But I will keep this in my favorites for how ever long I need to so I don't miss anything.

I am really enjoying this story. I like the fact that Edward didn't freak out about the fact that Bella had been in Ally's life basically as a mother figure for 5 years. And I really laugh at all the coniving the whole family, including Jake and Jared are doing to get these two together. Even Charlie! WoW! Oh and I was a little confused. The day Everyone got together the unpack Edward's house, wasn't that the day Jake and Jared was suppose to go meet Seth? Did I miss it? How did that go?

I just wanted to show my support for you and your story.  I'm not sure what people are saying about it, but I think it is very entertaining. If they are bitching about the sexual content, well I have read more explicit stories than this one and they are on this web site.  If they are talking about it being about the mafia, well as an Italian American myself whose father would tell you things about his past concerning his "friends" when he drank too much, that he would never tell you about sober, well I say fuck them if they can not see this as pure entertainment.  I get a little put out by some that say that shows like the "Soprano's" or the "Godfather" movies make Italians look bad.  I know who I am and my family and I'm proud to be Italian.  IT'S JUST FUCKING ENTERTAINMENT!!! DEAL WITH!!  Your story is great and don't let anyone tell you different. Oh and please don't kill Aro!

Thanks,  Maria Valenti-Boehme 



Author's Response:

I get crap over on fanfiction.net, and then I copy and paste the chaps here. So, it's not necessarily this website. 

As an Italian-American myself, I agree with you 100%, EXCEPT, I will admit to being disappointed with Jersey Shore. I may speak like them, being from Brooklyn, and have the nails, the attitude, but I am not orange. LMAO. Jersey Shore just gave guidettes/guidos a bad reputation. . . So, I didn't like that show UNTIL i watched it. 

Now, I am completely OBSESSED with Jersey Shore. It's hilarious, and all of this IS for entertainment purposes. Although, if my family knew I wrote this shit, it wouldn't be so funny. 

Thanks so much for reading, reviewing, and for your kind words. I don't get over to this site enough - save for updating. Sometimes I forget to check out the reviews over here. 

 

Anyway! Yes, thanks for reading and understanding.

You know I have a lot of stories in my favorites here and on FF that I keep up with, but there are only a few that I make sure to keep when they are completed so that I can go back and read again. This will be one of those stories. It had eveything a great story should have. Angst, humor, bad guys, and even POV's from Rosco and Apples, which was some of my favorite POV's and most of all unyielding love. I'm sad to see it end but you gave these two a great ending. That last chapter before this one had me a little worried for a minute, but I should have known it better. Thanks for the great story and I look forward to you next one.

Author's Response:

Many of you are wondering what he deal is with Edward and the talk of his lost son.  In chapter 5 there was a dream sequence that told a lot of what happened that fateful day when Edward found out Tanya was using him, to get his money.  She was not pregnant like she had told him, the problem is the night before they had unprotected sex, and she actually did give birth to his child.  Esme found out about it, but hid it from Edward trying to protect him.  Tanya and Edward junior later died in a fire.  There will be more to come on that, but it seems to be getting a lot of questions.  Now for Alice...She is clearly a not nice person in this fic, and to some she will partially redeem herself, but for some there is no redemption, her words and actions are far worse than any you have seen from Edward.  Siobhan is for the majority out of the picture, so she is of no major worry.  Uncle Harry is a very mean man, and there will be more to come about him.  We love our Aro he is one of the kindest and most loving men and we are proud to have written an Aro who is not only out of character, but also so very loveable.   Bella has come to trust Edward, and it shows.  A lot of you keep asking if she will sleep in the step-moms room, or if Edward will talk her into it...the answer to that is no.  The next few chapters have so much going on in them, I am sure that you will all have favorite parts.  We love hearing what your thoughts are so keep asking questions and we will answer what we can without ruining the plot. 

Thanks for Reading and Reviewing

Chapter 15 teaser...Subject to changes during BETA process...

It’s Saturday, and we are into the countdown to Thanksgiving.   Alice has called me numerous times, and left well over a hundred text messages and voice mails.  I have dealt with each and every one of them the same way. Without reading or listen to them, I just hit delete.

Esme found out during one of my talks with Carlisle about the stunt Alice pulled.  At first, I thought she would take Alice’s side, but was stunned when I found her on the phone giving Alice a piece of her mind.  Jasper has also said that he and Alice are talking, but not back to normal yet.  Jasper is really pissed at her.

Yesterday, Esme called me, and to my surprise, she asked me if I would still come over for Thanksgiving dinner.  She told me that she would understand if I did not want to come.  She said it was my choice, and she would still make my dinner if I wanted and bring it over to my home or Midnight Sun.  Not once did she try and force my hand.  After much thought, I said that I will be there.  I do enjoy spending time with the guys, even more so in the last few weeks.  I know they all were hoping for me to come, and I know I owe them a lot. I told them that I will join them and stay, as long as Alice and Rose keep their mouths shut. Esme, Carlisle, Emmett, and Jasper, have promised to keep them under control.

Things with Bella are still going really well. Too well, in fact.  She…fuck! Every time I see her, I want to hold her close.  It’s no longer just me having dirty thoughts about her, a lot of dirty thoughts about her, which I still am, but I also want to hug her, lie with her, make love to her, and that is really fucking scary for me, for lots of reasons.  I am worried, because I wonder if she could even cope in that type of a relationship. I have been a pussy about it, because I haven’t had the guts to ask Peter or Jasper what they think.  I know it’s because I am afraid they may say she couldn’t handle it, or I am not good enough for her.  I already know that I am not, but one can always hope for his own redemption.

I think I will cry now. Not because of what you written but because it has ended. I love the way you had Jane "handle" things and the way you wrote it. I don't think anyone else could have done it better. I'm glad Alice finally came around and that Emmett has found someone to love. This was a perfect ending to a wonderful story. I will miss it and make sure to check out your other stories. Oh and I can't wait to see if Rosalie gets her just desserts.

Thanks again for such a great story!

Wow, you guys are all so amazing, it will be bittersweet when we post the next chapter and click that button saying it is complete.  We want to really thank all of you so much for reviewing, we know hundreds of others read, but didn’t review, so we really want you to know that we are grateful and appreciative of the time you put forth to send us a review, no matter how long or short.  When the final chapter posts you all will have the chance to read an author’s note from us both.  Nikky has written hers and I have written mine.  Normally I just write them and include whatever Nikky wants me to touch base on.  I am super stoked because we actually stand a chance at getting our reviews over 5000 at FFN and we just pushed over 1000 mark at TWCS.  We are both so excited and thrilled with the turn out for our story, so thank you in being a HUGE contribution to those warm fuzzy feelings we both have over the story love we have gotten.  THANK YOU!  Be sure to get Enduring His Cimmerian View on your watch list, because the next POV chapter to post is Jane and there will be a large dish of justice served Jane style in it.  Thanks again to you all for the wonderful things you’ve had to say!

Perfect!  I was a little worried there for a minute but thank God Edward came to his senses.  I cried, as usual as Bella told Jasper her story, but cheered when she told Edward she loved him and her told her too. Whew! That was close.  Can't wait for the next chapter.

Author's Response:

WOW...the responses are so awesome that Nikky and I are both giddy.  There haven’t been many questions asked in the first 60 reviews, so I am going to answer a few non questions I noticed.  Bella was never kidnapped by Sue and Charlie.  Charlie Swan is Bella’s biological father, and Bella was sent to live with him after her mother died of cancer.  Aro honestly never knew of Bella’s real age, he had suspicions that she was not raised correctly and was acting younger than the 18 he thought her to be, because of the inept social skills.  Zafrina did not know either, but again had those same social skill thoughts that her son had.  We in no way were bashing DCFS or DHS or any other social workers, by saying that the kids would be taken by the state.  If anyone had turned Sue in for abandoning the kids the almost 6 years ago now she has been gone, the kids would have become wards of the state, because at 13 no state official or judge would have deemed Bella capable of fully caring for 2 yr old twins alone.  Just want to say that we both believe that it takes a special kind of person to be a social worker, and we both give those of you who are in the field of social work a round of applause because the things you have to see and or deal with can’t always be fun.  I have to say that the wonderful response to this story is more than either Nikky or myself could have hoped for, and we owe that all to you the readers.  THANK YOU!  If there is any questions or discussions you would like to have or read about past discussions, feel free to join us at TeamAllTwilight & AndTAT Fan Fiction on Facebook.  Kasi (& Nikky)

Teaser for Chapter 19: The Legal Side of Things.  Subjected to changes during beta process.

I dropped Bella of at Seth and Leah’s school. Before leaving her, I told her I would pick her up from the college when she got off.  It was so fucking hard to leave her; I just wanted to stay with her forever.  I knew the minute she was away from me, my old doubts would come back.  I knew that I had to talk with Jasper about her upbringing.  It’s that thought that makes me leave, even though I want to wait with her, take them home and stay with them. I am really at a loss for what I should do.  What can I do?  What do I do?  How do I help her?  How can someone so pure and good, come from people so evil?  The questions are killing me, but I know one thing for certain: if that bitch doesn’t stay the fuck away on her own, I will make her.  That sorry excuse of a parent will never get her hands on my Bella, Seth, or Leah again.  I will protect them with my very last breath, and deplete every cent I have, if need be.

I sit at my piano and just start playing.  I let the music guide me, keeping Bella in my thoughts as a play.  I let out all the feelings I have been denying myself. I haven’t been at it long before I find myself playing ‘Angel Eyes’ by The Jeff Healey Band, and I begin to sing along with my playing.

Girl, you're looking, fine tonight,

and every guy has got you in his sights.

What you're doing, with a clown like me,

is surely one of life's little, mysteries

 

So tonight I'll ask the stars above,

"How did I ever win your love?"

What did I do?

What did I say,

to turn your angel eyes my way?

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing His Cimmerian View and being such a wonderful part of our success in writing this story.  We both put a lot of time into this story and we are very grateful to have the following that we have gathered.  Because of the upheaval going on in Fan Fiction we are both concerned that HCV will or could fall victim to the haters and be removed – should this happen be assured that this story can be found on TWCS under the same name and it updates on the same schedule.   We are also going to be posting a blogspot for this story and all of our stories, therefore we will always be able to be found.  So rest assured that HCV will go on, no matter what.  A lot of you are asking about Sue and when her return will come.  We have made no secret that she will make an appearance, but before she does there are a few other things that will happen.  At this point her return will not be for a few chapters yet.  There are a lot of comments about Rose and there isn’t much about her in the next chapter, but after that there will be some things coming up.  As we have said other times there are approximately 30-35 chapters within this story, and there will be around 6-8 Out-Takes posting...The Out-Takes will post under the name ‘Enduring His Cimmerian View’.  There were not a lot of questions, and we have covered most of the comments concerns or worries, but if you have more questions you can always find us on Facebook under TeamAllTwilight & AndTAT Fan Fiction.  There are always people leaving comments and their theories there, come join the conversations.  Kasi &(Nikky)

 

Chapter 22 Teaser...subject to changes during BETA process.

We spent most of our day watching Christmas movies, and for supper we had a huge spread of really fattening foods.  I had Eric prepare for me several wonderful dishes.  I had wanted something easy for today - something that wouldn’t take away from our family day.  The dishes he made only needed to be warmed up before serving.  The kids loved it, but then again, we had some great things to choose from.  Bella really loved the extra cheesy enchiladas and the lobster bisque.  There were so many things to choose from that we had enough leftovers to last us for the next few days.  After we ate, we cleaned up the kitchen together. 

We all settled down in the living room after the clean-up was done for our new tradition.  After we were all settled in, I passed out a few gifts to each person in the room.  “Okay, here are a few gifts that you get to open before we go to mass tonight.”  I made sure to pass out the gift bags that held our new matching clothing that Esme had chosen for our first Christmas mass together.  I had asked Esme to help, and she did, but then refused to let me pay her back for the gifts.  Esme said that the new outfits were from her, and that she was happy that I and my new family were going to attend services together.  

“Edward, we can wait and open these gifts tomorrow, can’t we?”  Bella asks.

“No, Baby; these gifts are for tonight for our church service together.  This is our first Christmas mass we get to spend together and these gifts will help make it more special.  They are from Esme, who wanted to help make this special.  There are gift bags for each of us.  Okay everyone, open them up and let’s see what we have.”

This was a great chapter.  Emmett is the best.  So silly but so insightful and very loving to everyone. Is Edward JR. really died? I keep waiting for the chapter when meets a little boy and it turns out to be his son. Can't wait until next week.

Mari



Author's Response:

Thanks for reading and reviewing.  Each week I read the reviews for like the first 3-4 hours to see what kind of questions you all want answers to, and this time there are hardly any questions at all. 

So I thought we could touch base on some comments.  We have gotten a lot of Great chapter, sad ending, but it was needed...stuff (and it was needed).  ‘Edward had to allow the pain to flow out instead if keeping it locked inside of him.’

We have had a few diabolical people suggest that Edward would maybe recognize Sue and Charlie Swan, or Harry Clearwater.  ‘This is an interesting theory.’

A lot of you would love to lynch Sue.  ‘But first she has to make an appearance.’ 

Some of you have noted that you for see Gina as being a problem.  ‘Ummm…YEAH!’

A few have wondered if Tanya and little Edward are in fact dead and buried.  ‘In the graves in Port Angeles are in fact the bodies of Tanya Denali, and her son known to all as Edward Anthony Masen Jr.’

The comments people have made on the complexity of our characters though is what I want to touch on the most.  The fact that we have made the characters so out of character in most cases is what I am enjoying so much.  I personally love Alice in the books, I think she is WAY underplayed in the movies.  I love Alice she is one of my favorite characters, but to make her this unlikeable character is hard, yet I think it really gives so much to this storyline.  Alice will learn some very valuable lessons in this story and that old saying a leopard can’t change his spots, does not apply to Ali-cats. 

I like Rose and if I (Kasi) had to compare myself to a character from Twilight that I am most like it would be her.  I am not a royal bi*ch, but I am pretty outspoken and tend to say exactly what is on my mind, and that is how I see Rose in the books and movies.  The Rose in this story though goes above and beyond the snippy, and stuck in her ways bitchy Rose from the books or movies.  Our Rose is a downright spoiled rotten mean girl, who will never grow up because she wants to remain that rich girl who has everyone surrounding themselves in her light to better their standings.  Edward could have married the high class daughter of some billionaire tycoon, and Rose would have issue unless she bowed down to Rose. 

Jasper in this story is one of the most in character, characters we have.  Very smart and laid back, goes with the flow and yet is always there to help calm matters that need attention. 

Emmett, God I love Emmett.  He is so fun loving and wild, but he is so very smart and he can step up and show it when the time is called on him to do so.  You will be seeing a lot more of this intellectual and loving Emmett as the story progresses. 

I hope that you have enjoyed this little insight we have shared with you this week.  Feel free to join us on Facebook, where there are tons of discussions and theories shared daily.  Just search for TeamAllTwilight & AndTAT Fan Fiction and it will pop up.  Thanks everyone for making us feel so great, we are proud to bring this story to you and so happy you are enjoying it.  Thanks for reading and reviewing, Kasi (& Nikky).

 

Chapter 20: Snow Storms Teaser...Subject to changes during beta process.

Emmett has filed papers with the court, getting Bella temporary custody for Seth and Leah.  Angela, Ben’s wife, who is a social worker, is making case notes on Bella’s behalf.  She is also talking to each of the kids, and doing a home study to make sure that they are having all of their needs met. 

It was not an easy task to get Bella to agree to all of this, but when Emmett explained that if her stepmom came back, she could take Seth and Leah and Bella might never see them again. He also explained that because Bella was now of age, she could keep it from happening by letting us help her.

I didn’t like scaring her, but it worked.  She thinks that if her mother gets them, she would not allow her to see them anymore.  She is afraid that Sue would then leave them with someone else, and they would end up getting hurt.  She said she would rather be there for them to keep them safe, so she finally agreed to sign the proper paperwork.  We all told her there was no way that she would lose the kids. 

Angela sat her down and explained to her that with her support system, it would be in Seth and Leah’s best interest to become their legal guardian.  It took us all a while to convince her that, since she was now a legal adult, and she had been taking such great care of them, that the court would be on her side.  Carlisle, Rev. Weber, Jasper, Peter, Marcus, Samantha - who is another worker at Jasper and Peter’s office, Chas, Esme, Aro, Zafrina, and myself, were finally able to convince her.  So far, quite a few people from the church and Sunday school program have written out statements, all in Bella’s favor.  Aro and Zafrina have documented files that they have kept; all of which have been copied and sent to Emmett.  Aro has documentation of all of the work she has done over the years.  With Aro’s help, and Bella’s social security number, I have paid all of her back Social Security taxes, so she has documented earned income. Bella is also now a real employee of the college. She is no longer paid under the table. 

Because Bella has had no education, we have set up a verbal IQ test for her to take. Since she is so smart in mathematics alone, I know her scores will be quite high.  Once she can fully read, we are going to have her take the GED test and get her a diploma.  Angela said that because the kids are in school, her inability to read will not be held against her.  Angela was also quick to point out, that with the substantial support system that Bella has, DCFS would recommend that the children be placed with her at this point anyway. 

Emmett says that at this point, he is ninety-nine point nine percent certain that Bella will be granted full legal guardianship of Seth and Leah in court. Until the hearing, there is a temporary order of guardianship filed, and unless they take Bella to court, neither Sue nor Harry can come in and take the kids away from her.  The case has been booked for the second week in February, which gives us eight weeks to prepare.

I enjoyed how you handled Bella's meeting with Jasper.  It was very funny but kind of sad at the same time.  I'm glad some things about Bella's past is finally coming out.  I also liked how you have made Alice kinda bitchy.  Sometimes she is written so sweet it makes me want to throw up.  Can't wait for the next up date.

Author's Response:

Thank you for reading and reviewing His Cimmerian View.

We know that the more the story develops the more we all want Edward to just post haste stop going to Aro’s club.  I wanted to give a clear run down on the girls that he sees there, so that we can keep things straight.  Edwards’s girls at Aro’s:  Sally: sex addict 27 tall she about 5ft 8 red shoulder length hair thin and tall. Likes roll play.  Irina: 6ft tall slender and Blond Hair to her cheek bones like rough sex and anal sex. 29 years old.  Carmen: 5ft 6 long black hair enjoys being controlled by men, average weight and size. Likes BDSM and being restrained.  Maria:  5’5 180 pounds curvy and thicker than other girls.  Sandy blonde hair, cute features and very large breasts.  More relaxed and sensual.  Edward only sees her maybe once a month, sometimes longer than that between visits.  He controls her too, but it is all about sensual and erotic pleasure with her than it is about rough and controlling hard core sex.  Some question if he chose Maria the last time and more often, because she reminded him of Bella.  Truth be known Carmen would be the one who resembles Bella the most.  He is not with Maria to pretend she is Bella, but because from Maria he gets the softer more sensual erotic side of sex.  Edward had made the decision a long time ago to make himself this untouchable person, and when it came to the girls most of the time he went with the hard core domination side of the act.  I can’t say that Edward’s visits to the club will cease right away, but I do assure you that soon our professor with the extremely dark view of all women will soon realize that he just can’t do it anymore.  He may be smart and he may be a lot of things, but sometimes when you shut yourself off, it’s hard to wake up those pieces of yourself.  I hope that this helps a little in the explanation of Edward and his tainted views.  I will tell you this, I just got done with my part on a chapter where he comes clean with Bella about what he did when he spent time at the club, and telling the truth can be quite cleansing.

Thanks, Kasi (&Nikky)

 

 

Chapter 9 Teaser… Subject to changes during BETA process.

“Mr. Masen, I don’t mean to be rude, but where are we going? Do you need me to work at your house today?”

I shake my head as we keep walking.  “No Isabella, as you know all my employees have to have a medical check.  I am accompanying you to yours.”  We stop walking when we arrive at the bus stop. I look at Isabella who is looking upset.

“Mr. Masen, I didn’t bring any money with me.  I can’t afford to have a medical check, I am sorry.” I look down at her and frown.  There is something in her expression that tells me that it’s not just money she is worried about. I look up seeing the bus coming to a stop beside us.

We both get on, but this time I lead her to the seats at the back.  I motion for her to sit and I sit next to her, leaving a little room between us. “Isabella, I set up a medical plan for each of my staff including you. Your medical is a part of that so you don’t have to worry about payment, it has already been covered.” I am not really lying, more like stretching the truth a little. “I know that you don’t like people too close to you, for that reason I am taking you to see a dear friend of mine.” I smile thinking about how to explain Carlisle. “His name is Carlisle, and he is much more than a friend to me.  I guess you could say that he is like a father figure. He is a very compassionate man, and he has an amazing ability to relax people. He will not hurt you. I would never allow him, or anyone to hurt you.” I didn’t really mean for what I said at the end to come out, but as I looked into her eyes it just came out.  She looked me right in the eye for much longer then she usually does.  I watch her reaction and notice her bite her lip, as she nods her head.

“Will you stay with me, the whole time?”  She asks, as her eyes fall to the floor. 

Without meaning to, my hand moves to the underside of her chin.  I feel small sparks on the tips of my fingers as I keep my fingers against her skin.  These are those same comforting sparks I felt the night of my panic attack, I dismiss it.  I slowly tilt her chin up, making her look at me again. “I will stay with you, if that is what you want.  This is your choice Isabella.  I know that I have been ordering you around a lot, but this time it is your complete choice and decision.  If you wish for me to stay in the room with you, then I will.  If you want me to leave, then I will.  This is all about you, and what you want.” 

She keeps looking at me and I could feel her shaking a little, but she never pulls her face away from my hand.  “I would like you to stay in the room please, Mr. Masen.” I nod my head letting her face go.

Ok so I think it is uncle Harry that broke in.  But I wonder what he is looking for? And if he is looking for something, does that mean that something has happened to Sue?  Hmm.  I really like the way you have written Alice in this story. More often than not, she is so sickly sweet that it is nice to see her as a bitch. I can't wait to see what happens at Thanksgiving dinner.  Oh and I really like the way that you have written Aro and Felix too.

Author's Response:

Wow what else can Nikky or I say...once again the overwhelming response and the amount of story love we are receiving from so many people just makes us both feel so loved.  I know that this story may have a few minor flaws, but we have tried all along to keep them to a minimum.  So essentially thank you as always for reading and reviewing our story it makes us all giggly and excited to see all the reviews we are getting. 
We asked you who you thought it might be that broke into Bella and the twins apartment, and I must say we were a little surprised that a lot of you have it figured out.  With a wide range of evil or rude nasty characters, many of you said it was Uncle Harry...and you are right.  There will not be resolution for a bit when it comes to Uncle Harry, so if you want to figure out what he was looking for all I can suggest is watch for clues.  There are some very important and much asked for things coming soon. 
We have been asked many times for Edward to stop using Aro’s girls for his pleasure.  And where we understand why, we also knew it was very unrealistic for a man with so much anxiety, pressure, cynicism and tainted view to jump into a healthy relationship and give up the release and hidden pleasure he has surrounded himself in to get by for the past five plus years.  He has slowly been weaning himself from the place, and very soon he will open up and tell Bella why he went there.  We have been asked when you all get to know a lot more about Edward...well very soon actually, and by that I mean the next few chapters are chuck full of things from the past. 
We have been asked if Renee will come back...(A LOT ACTUALLY)...Renee was Bella’s biological mother, who died when Bella was only three years old.  At the age of three after her mother died, custody of Bella was given to Charlie Swan who was her biological father.  Charlie was married to Sue Swan, who is the mom she talks about leaving all the time.  Sue Swan is the person who left Bella to care for the twins.  Since this story is not alternate universe, neither, Charlie or Renee will be making any grand entrance, unless via a dream.  But don’t get too happy, because Sue Swan is still out there somewhere, and she has a few things to say.
We have been asked a lot if Alice, Rose, Siobhan, and Esme will make any redemption...Esme already has begun her turn around, and we think she is doing well.  Siobhan, well she wore out her welcome quite completely at the ball, at this point there is not a real plan to drag her back into the storyline.  Alice...well this is a hard one for me.  I actually normally always LOVE Alice, but this Alice is a tough nut to crack.  She is not going to bring in the roses and become a fan favorite anytime soon, but you will notice some changes.  As for Rose, well...I just can’t wait to hear your opinions of her...and I am sure you’ll have plenty next week.
Updating...we had planned all along to only update every other week on Thursdays.  However since posting the first chapter we have been on an every week posting schedule...and we have NO INTENTION of changing that at this time.  Nikky and I have a comfortable cushion, and the next chapter to post is with the beta now.  I got this weeks chapter back from the beta on Tuesday afternoon, so realistically we are posting around when they are ready.  Nikky is working on her part of chapter 26 right now, and I am working on 24 so we are not looking at any lapses in time.  We are both so excited you are choosing to come down this road with us. 
Where the next chapter has some major info and angst, we promise that chapter seventeen will make up for it.  Thanks again for always being so supportive and showing the story love HCV deserves.

Chapter 16 Teaser...subjected to changes during the BETA process...

Its Thanksgiving today, and I am on my way to pick up Bella and the kids.  Bella and I decided that, after dinner with my family, they would all stay the night at my house tonight.  I will run them home to get their things for the camping trip in the morning, and see them off to camp.  Bella will make sure that Jake has enough food, and then she is coming to spend the weekend with me.  I’m looking forward to this weekend, but I am worried about my growing feelings for her. I knock on the door before using my key to get in.  Bella gave me a spare key so I could let myself in. The new door has a double lock on it, and is reinforced with steel; no one is breaking this one down.

I walk in, seeing Leah in a black, knee-length dress with a cream ribbon around the waist, and black shoes.  Seth is wearing a pair of black pants and a cream colored button down shirt, with a black tie and shoes.

“Wow, look at you Leah! You’re very beautiful, and Seth, you look so handsome.” They both smile at me and look up as Bella walks in. She is in a cream colored dress, with a black ribbon around the waist. The dress goes to just above her knees; she looks fucking beautiful in it - so fucking beautiful.

“Wow, Bella! You look sensational...really beautiful.  Are we all ready to go?” I look her up and down, I am so glad she allowed me to buy us all new outfits for today. 

I got around her apprehension by telling her that I wanted to go to church with them this Sunday night.  We are attending the evening service after Seth and Leah return from camp.  Since I was buying something for myself, I wanted to get them something, as well.  As usual, getting Bella to let me buy Seth and Leah something, was easy, but her...not so much.  I was so fucking glad Seth and Leah helped me. I have on black pants and black shirt with a cream colored tie.  I push my fucking guilty feelings down and smile at the three of them.

“Yes, we’re all ready.” Bella picks up their bags, and I quickly take them from her.

“Let’s go,” I say as I usher us all out the door together.

Ok I think I must have missed it somewhere, but while I was reading the othe readers reviews and the comments they had on Bella's age, I realized that I don't know how old she is.  Can you tell me? Edward thinks that she is 24 right? So how old is she? 

Thanks,

Author's Response:

Bella turns 19 in chapter 8, however Edward is under the impression that she is 24.  She was already 13 when Sue her step mom left her to care for the twins.  She has been caring for them alone since they were 2.  They soon turn 8.  Thank you for reading and reviewing.  Kasi (&Nikky)

High fives to Edward for having the strength to not go farther with Bella on their first sort of date.  I just hope he forgives Bella for lieing to him about her age.  Surely he will understand and for give her.

Maria



Author's Response:

Hello our faithful readers and reviewers!  We were expecting a bit of a lashing from some of you, and we have gotten a few but nothing like I expected.  Please let me remind you all now first and foremost that we are both happy ever after kind of gals.  Little refresher is needed about ages, and a few other things, since there were a few questions.  Edward is 28 and will soon be turning 29.  Bella just turned 11 when the twins were born, Sue left when Bella was 13, and Bella has been working for the university for over 5 years.  Bella just turned 19 in chapter 8.  Edward is 9 and 1/2 years older than Bella.  Before Sue left, she obtained a fake ID for Bella that said Bella was 18.  Therefore everyone surrounding the apartment building assumed she was of legal age.  Sue needed everyone to think Bella was 18, and she was sure to scare tactic that into Bella.  All these years, Bella has continued to maintain the age Sue said she had to say she was, in fear of not being able to stay with the twins.  Now for Bree Tanner and James...Bree Tanner was the female student from Edward’s Summer school course he taught.  In the summer for the past several years, Edward has been helping his good friend Marcus by teaching the kids who struggle to pass, or are so far behind they may not graduate high school.  Bree Tanner was the hoodie wearing shy and quiet girl from chapters 1 and 2.  Bree lives in Forks and attends high school at Forks High.  James Hunter is a Math teacher and the truancy officer for the Forks school district.  We don’t want to give too much away, but if you think back to the earlier chapters, when Edward had to take a break from his panic attacks, he was clear to tell Marcus his concerns about Bree being abused.  Bella is naive about many things, but she has grown a lot in the past few chapters.  We want to be clear that Bella feels as if she lied to Edward, she started trusting him a long time ago and when she started trusting him she feels she should have told him then.  Edward doesn’t feel betrayed by the lie, but he is more of in shock by the lie.  When he thought he was almost 5 years older than Bella he was concerned with the age difference, mainly because of how innocent she is.  Now that that almost five is almost ten, he is confused.  The next chapter will have you cheering Edward on, and hating his guts too.  We don’t want to give too much away, but I will say this, we are both excited at the prospect of the reviews after the next chapter posts.  Thanks as always for reading and reviewing this story, you all have no idea how much your words mean to us.  Thank you, Kasi (& Nikky)

 

Teaser for Chapter 18: Confessions  (As always subject to changes in the Beta process.)

Leaving Bella’s place, I get in my car and drive.  I don’t even slow down when the speedometer hits one-hundred-thirty miles per hour; I just keep driving.  I am racing to get away from the fear and the rage that is inside of me. I still feel so angry; how the fuck did I not see that she was only nineteen?!  I mean, she looks so young; I am so fucking pissed at myself.  She is still a baby, and the fact that she is only nineteen, doesn’t keep me from wanting her.  I want her, and I need to be with her.  I want her in every way, which is so fucked up. I shouldn’t want to be with a nineteen year old girl.

 

She was thirteen when Sue left her to look after Seth and Leah.  She was so fucking young, and she ended up in Aro’s club at thirteen!  Fuck, if he would have said yes to her…if she was in the pictures I had to choose from…I would have picked her…I know I would have… fuck! I could have really hurt her.  I am really fucking sick! Thank God he said no! Fuck, the dip shit pimp that said yes...shit! I’m sure she would…fuck I don’t even want to finish that thought.

 

“FUCK!” I scream out and I do an illegal U-turn at eighty miles per hour.  I decide I need to see Aro. If I find out that fucker knew her real age, I am going to add that motherfucker to my shit list.  I am going to hurt him so fucking much, and anyone who tries to stop me, too.

Some people would think it impossible that Bella believes in Santa, but I like that you wrote it that way.  It just shows you how innocent she is.  I hope Paul and Gina didn't do anything to her, but if they did, I hope Aro makes them disappear. Thanks for such an interesting story.

Hello to our faithful bunch, thanks for reading and reviewing chapter 20 of HCV.  Nikky and I really are so grateful to all our wonderful readers and reviewers.  In the author’s note I asked all of you to tell me what your favorite line from the story so far.  Here is Nikky’s from chapter 19 – "Have a good night, and keep Little Edna in your pants. And I do mean your pants. Close the door behind you when you're able to shut your mouth and leave." I stand there for a minute with my mouth hanging open, before shaking my head and leaving.   My favorite quote so far is from Chapter 20 – "I will use the adult terms, and try to stick to the given terms of penis or vagina, but please, for my sanity, can we not call my cock a winkie?"

Many of you are wondering who is behind Bella being hurt.  Bella actually fell, but it was what took place at the college before she left that caused her the issues to be as sick as she is right now.  In the next chapter that person and their actions will be handled, and handled quite well.  Some have worried that we may have Bella been brutalized or raped and we want to be clear that we would not ever do that in this story.  We both agree with you that Bella has been brutalized and hurt enough from her so called loved ones to cause her anymore brutalization.  There was an attack against her at the college before she left, and as I said that will be handled quite well. 

Thanks again for all of the wonderful attention and recognition you all give to His Cimmerian View.  Your responses mean the world to us, thanks.  Kasi (& Nikky)

 

Chapter 21 teaser…subject to changes during beta process…

I make it back to my car quickly.  I open her door sitting her in her seat and strap her in as best I can. “Baby, you’re in my car, I’m going to get you to Carlisle.”  I kiss her head, close her door, and run around to my side.  I get in and start driving without waiting to put on my seat belt. I switch the heat on high. “Baby, I got the heating on for you. We’ll be there soon.”  Please God let us get there soon!  I fiddle with my cell getting the hands free turned on, so I can call Carlisle.

“Hello Edward,” I hear Carlisle’s cheerful voice come across the hands free.

“Can you get to the Hospital, right away?  Its Bella, she is hurt. I found her in the park unconscious. She has a head wound, and she’s been lying in the fucking snow for about an hour.”  I try to calm my voice, the last thing I need to do is break down.

“Edward, I’m on way back to the hospital now.  I just left a few minutes ago. I should get there before you do.  I will let you go. The last thing we need is for you to crash.  I’ll be outside with a team ready for you when you get there.  Drive safely, son.” Carlisle disconnects the call, not waiting for me to reply.

“Baby, we’re almost there. Come on Baby, wake up for me.”  I stroke her face, while driving around the fucking cars that are in front of me.  These people are idiots, they are driving like old people fuck, slow and sloppy.  I commit many driving penalties, yet I am driving better than anyone else out here.  I’m sure I’ve been caught on nearly all the speed cameras that are up.  I sigh out in relief as I come up to the hospital.  I pull up in front of the emergency doors and I see Carlisle already there.  I pull to a stop and he waves to the door and opens Bella’s door with his other hand.  He picks her up turns and places her on a gurney.  I jump out and catch up to him.

“Hey you can’t park there,” I hear. 

Turning around I see the security officer glaring at me, and I throw him my keys.  “Then you move it,” I say.

He catches my keys, and looks at me.  “I am not here to be your valet.”

I turn back and glare at him.  “Then call and have it fucking towed, I don’t give a shit.  My girl is… fuck!”

I feel Carlisle pull on my arm.  “Mitch please can you park the car for my son, she is in critical condition.”  Mitch looks at Carlisle then to me and his face pales, but he nods his head.  I feel the air leave my body, she’s in critical condition!   “Edward I need you to calm down and come with me.”  Carlisle pulls me along with him and I head to the trauma room.  I see them removing her clothes.  “Edward, do you know why her clothes soaking wet? Even under her coat is wet. There is no way this all occurred from her lying in the snow.” I shake my head at him, because I don’t know. I stand back and watch them work on her.

Alright! Alright!  I'm such a sap! I cry even at the happy chapters.  Thank God for Emmie. Can count on him to make you laugh. Rose, that bitch! I hope Emmett leaves her old snobby ass and takes the kid too.  Can't wait for the next chapter.

Author's Response:

Thanks for reading and reviewing chapter 22 of His Cimmerian View.  There aren’t a lot of questions about things going on, other than the arrival of Uncle Harry and of course Sue’s return.  The story only has roughly 10 to 12 chapters left and through 26 are written and 27 is more than half way completed.  BPOV out-take is coming along nicely but man alive is it HUGE over 22K word count right now and it is for sure a tissue warning.  As for the few questions we have gotten, we have answers... We want to be clear that Emmett filed a paper that is giving Bella custody until the court hearing so right now no one can take the twins away from her, without first going to court.  We also had someone ask about the title of the story over at TWCS, it is the same as it is at FFN... however at TWCS I have found it is easier to look up the author and then find the story, the story search is not super simple like it is at FFN.  We are the same names both author name and story name at all sites we post at.  On a side and personal note, I am very sorry for the delay of this... after I posted the last chapters on Thursday morning, my mother passed away.  Unless something gets in the way the only thing that will be delayed is this review reply.  The next chapter is ready to go... minus mine and Nikky’s final read through anyway.  I want to thank you all for the kind words shared on Facebook already and thank you for the prayers and well wishes.  If you haven’t joined us on Facebook, please do so there are lots of fun discussions and of course sometimes extra teasers and info too.  Just search for TeamAllTwilight & AndTAT Fan Fiction and you will find us.  Thanks everyone have a great week.  Kasi (&Nikky)

 

Chapter 23: teaser subject to changes during beta process…

It’s New Year Eve and the twin’s eighth birthday.  Seth and Leah shared a party yesterday at Chuck E. Cheese and they loved it.  Esme, Chas, and Angela all took the day off and came to help out at the party.  Aro brought Sulpicia and their son, Sammy, who is ten.  Sammy seemed to have taken a liking to Leah, as he stayed mainly with her the entire time. Esme and Zafrina both said it was cute and sweet, but all I wanted to do was kill the kid.  Bella even laughed at me and gave me a look when I let out a growl at little Sammy when he pulled Leah away while she was talking to us. I looked back at Bella and shrugged my shoulders, because I wasn’t really sure where the over-protectiveness came from.

Then there were the moms or whores as I call them.  I got hit on a lot.  Almost every mother of a child that had been invited was dressed like they were having a night out on the town, not taking their child to a classmate’s birthday party.  Some even said that I was really nice to help Bella and her kids out like I have been.  I felt like I was going to lose it as they made her sound so beneath them and that she was simply a charity case.  Thankfully, Bella kept me calm and stopped me from screaming at them.  As soon as school is back in session, I’ll be making it very clear to everyone what Bella and I are to each other. The fact that this was a place for children, and that it was Seth and Leah’s first real birthday party, stopped me from performing a very hot, public display of affection with Bella.  I know for a fact I would have enjoyed it, and I’m sure I would have made Bella enjoy it, too.

Great chapter! I'm sad for Emmette, but happy for him at the same time.  Rose is a bitch and Emmette is too descent of a man for her. Great part about Harry too. I'm betting he killed Sue. Can't wait for the next day!

Author's Response:

Well after this chapter how will we ever get better?  I hope that you trust me when I say, it will!  Many of you want Aro to get his hands on Uncle Harry before the police do.  I will not say who gets to Uncle Harry first; because well that would just ruin the surprise, but I will say this... his capture is already written, so feel free to speculate.  There are some seriously some great chapters coming up, but Nikky says I need to warn you all that some of them are rather drama and angst filled.  There also may or may not be a few cliffhangers in the near future, oh heck who am I kidding the next two chapters are rather cliffy in nature.  The next chapter has a big surprise within and MOST of you may be very shocked.  Nikky, Jess, and a few others who have already read the chapter during BETA processing seem to think that the next chapter may generate a lot more reviews.  We may even get some from people who have not reviewed before now, because it is quite a twist.   There is your warning.  Nikky and I have been called diabolical for the plot twist that is coming, so we sure hope you all like it.  I will say this out of all the readers and reviewers we have, only one time has someone guessed a good portion of the plot and got it right.  We of course didn’t tell them, because well then they would know it would ruin the story telling process.   We had a few question about Sienna’s ability to place a phone call since she is deaf.  Deaf people can make phone calls using a Telecommunication Device for the Deaf (TDD).  Special telephone services have been developed to carry the TDD functionality even further. In certain countries there are systems in place so that a deaf person can communicate with a hearing person on an ordinary voice phone using a human relay operator. There are also "carry-over" services, enabling people who can hear but cannot speak ("hearing carry-over," a.k.a. "HCO"), or people who cannot hear but are able to speak ("voice carry-over," a.k.a. "VCO") to use the telephone.  Couple of questions came about Charlotte’s nick-name of Chas, in our story Charlotte was the youngest raised by her father among her several brothers and she was quite the tomboy growing up.  Char is a girlie name and therefore her brothers tagged her with Chas, because it is manlier.  Thanks for reading and reviewing our story, we are proud of it, and are grateful to our loyal readers.  If you have more questions or want to discuss some of the story line, feel free to join the group on Facebook you can find us by searching for: TeamAllTwilight & AndTAT FanFiction.  Kasi (&Nikky)

PS….Enduring His Cimmerian View is now POSTED... Please go read and review.

Chapter 25 Teaser:
“Pajama day is when you stay in your pajamas all day and eat lots of bad stuff, watch movies, and play games all day long.”  Seth and Leah nod their heads at me and Bella gives me a small half nod with her smile.  “Okay then, pajama day it is in our house.  I just need to make a few phone calls. Why don’t you all get your robes and slippers on, and I’ll meet you for breakfast as soon as I am done.”  Seth and Leah hug me before walking out of the bathroom to get their slippers and robes.

After they leave the room, I look to see Bella biting her lip, and I know she’s worrying about something.  “I’m sorry that she wet the bed. She’s never done that before.”

I walk to Bella, wrapping my arms around her. “Baby, its okay. She’s upset, and her body is reacting to that, so don’t worry about it.” I kiss her head and push her hair out of her face.  I hiss as I see the large bruises that go all the way up one side of her face.  “Baby, how are you feeling? Are you in pain?”

She shrugs her shoulders and tries to give me a smile.  “I’m not sure. I...”  She stops and rubs her head.  “I feel like I failed them.  He hurt Seth, and I should’ve been able to protect him better.  I’m upset that it was Uncle Harry that broke into our apartment the other time.  I don’t understand why he did that, or what he was looking for.  How could he do that to Seth and Leah?  I mean, I know that he doesn’t really like me much, but they’re his sister’s children.  I thought he would love them.”

Ok.  If Harry started using James' name 9 years ago, then Bella would be 10 years old, so how does James know Edward. Hmmm. And did James have anything to do with Edward's parents death seeings how he seems to be pretty interested in Edward? Man! Talk about some plot twists!  I love it!  Please! Please! Update soon!

Author's Response:

Thanks again for the outstanding and wonderful reviews!  We are so excited and happy to have you all on board with us for this journey and we sure hope that you all continue to love and praise the story the way that you do.  I know that you all learned some rather interesting pieces of information in the puzzle we call His Cimmerian View.  I bet a lot of you have more questions than you are asking.  But to answer a few of the questions that don’t take away from future story line here you go.  Yes it is possible that Tanya and Sue are the one in the same, but do remember that Tanya Denali was positively identified by dental records.  Some are asking if Sue could be Edward’s long lost mother... I guess that is a thought, but the age thing would be difficult to swallow.   Sue could very well be masquerading as Bella and trying to get her hands on the money that has been left to her both from her mother’s Estate and her grandfather’s.  Wow more of you seem to be worried about who might have their hand on Edward’s shoulder than much else, so I will relive you of that stress, it is in fact Carlisle.  Between this chapter and the BPOV on EHCV we have had many question how Harry/James could have gotten into Bella’s apartment after Aro did all the security measures, and I assure you that his ability to get into the apartment will be answered, just have faith in us, and you will see.  Lots of new things will come out in the next chapter as well and unfortunately you are all going to hate us, because it will be ending in a cliffhanger as well.  In the next chapter we will get to see Edward come face to face with Harry though... insert evil laugh... but at least I am showing you the teaser from that meeting!  I am excited about the ending of the story; however we will not update any faster than we currently are.  I am working on chapter 28 and Nikky is on chapter 29.  At this rate we are going to be pushing to keep up with the schedule of posting each week.  No I am not saying we will not post, but I am saying we will at this point be sticking to the every Thursday posting.   If you haven’t yet, go check out Enduring His Cimmerian View... the Bella POV chapter is posted.  We will not be adding any chapters to EHCV, until we have the main story cracked out of HCV.  Thank you for being some of the best readers and reviewers out there and for loving this story we are sharing with you all.  Kasi (&Nikky)

 

Chapter 26 teaser...subject to changes during Beta process.
All of it; I mean, this mother fucker broke Seth’s arm.  I close my eyes, and when I open them again, I see nothing but him. Without even thinking about what I’m doing; I hit the fucker as hard as I can.  I just keep hitting him until I feel someone pull me back. With the rage still blinding me, I knock whoever it is off of me and hit Harry again. 

Suddenly, I feel a lot more people dragging me back. I feel a sting on my face, and I look around to see Aro shaking his head.  Garrett has his arms wrapped around my waist, Felix is holding my left arm, and Emmett is on my right; I have no clue when he got here. Standing right in front of me is Jane. 

“Jane, I don’t think you needed to slap him,” Aro says as he walks over to us.  That fucking bitch slapped me! 

“He was out of it, and it brought him back didn’t it?  Besides that, I get to do the beating up around here,” she huffs, walking away from me to bend down and look at Harry.  I look down as well, noticing that I knocked the fucker out. I can’t help but grin about it.  “Wipe that look off your face! You broke some of his ribs and his nose; that’s my job, Assward!”  Jane jumps up and walks over to her bag. She brings out some jars and sets them in a line on the desk.

“Eh...what the hell is in those jars?” Emmett asks as he gives me a look to ask if I’m alright.  I nod and the three of them release me.

OMG!  Talk about a splotch twist!  I love it.  Wasn't expecting Seth and Leah to be Edward's kids but all makes sense now.  I hope Bella doesn't withdraw from Edward.  And I bet Seth and Leah are going to be tickled pink to find out that Edward is their father.  They all ready love each other so much. I can't wait for the next up date.  I love this story!

Author's Response:

Well hello to our faithful readers and reviewers.  It is hard to believe that this story will be coming to a close in just about five to seven more weeks.  Yeah chapter 27 posts next week, 28 is written and off to the start of the beta’s (yes more than one) process.  I am working on 29 and Nikky is kicking behind on her part of 30.  After 30 is written there will be either 2 to 5 more chapters.  Jess2002 threw a monkey wrench into chapter 29 for us, and I was actually shocked she asked for the thing she asked for.  I will not leak the info on what she said we needed to do, but man alive it does give a nice twist.  (LIKE WE NEED MORE?) twists that is...LOL.  Okay so you got quite a bit of the mystery settled on the real Tanya Denali.  I never lied to you , when I assured you all that Tanya Denali was in fact dead and buried.  I also stated many times that the toddler found in the burnt house with Tanya Denali was in fact the child she gave birth to.  Neither of those statements was untrue.  I never said that he was in fact Edward’s, just that he was in fact Tanya’s.  You will get to hear more about good old Uncle Harry again, but trust me when I say that he will be quit forthcoming on the information.  Jane has incredible ways to make assholes talk.  Many of you want to see Jane get her hands on Sue, and well I will not say if that happens or not, you will have to wait and see.  Sue and her bullshit are not yet complete and I will say this, she makes an appearance in more than one chapter upcoming.  She is quite sly, like a fox.  We are both so excited to see what you are all thinking.  I know that this was a lot to take in with the double identities.  I want to assure you all that everything written so far was all part of the original plan, chapter 29 will be the first deviation from our starting outline.  We hope that you all continue to enjoy and read and review this story, because it is nice to hear how much you like, love, or hate parts of it.  We are amazed that we have written a story that is garnering so much emotion from our readers.  Thank you for all you say in your reviews, they really mean the world to us!  Kasi (&Nikky)   

 

Teaser for chapter 27: Subject to changes during final beta process

I look at Bella and Alice sitting there on the floor.  Alice is in front of Bella holding her arms while Bella is shaking and crying.  I walk toward them, both seeming to have missed Emmett and me coming in the room.

“He’s going to hate me... they are all going to hate me. What should I do?  This is so big. I... I didn’t know. I swear I didn’t know.  Why…why would she lie about that?  I did everything they ever asked.  I never questioned them. She could have told me. I would’ve still loved them, I do still love them.  Why?  I... it’s not fair, Alice.” Bella’s hand goes to her hair, and she begins to grip and pull at it. 

“Bella, please calm down.  I’m not sure I fully understand what you’re talking about, but Edward loves you very much, and he knows you; he will trust you, I’m sure...”

As I move forward, Alice stops talking and turns to me. This makes Bella look up at me, too.  She looks broken and scared.

“Bella Baby,” I say, holding my arms out to her. Instead of coming to me like I’d hoped, she shakes her head.

“You’re going to hate me, but I swear I didn’t know.  I thought that... I thought I was the best for them. I didn’t know really. I swear didn’t know.   If I had, I would’ve looked for you, I swear.  Mom and Harry couldn’t have done or said anything that would’ve stopped me from finding you.  If I knew, I would have made sure that they were where they belonged.  I would have been punished, but I would have taken it happily knowing that they were safe and loved.  I am so sorry.” I look at her, seeing her hurting, and I hurt too because she is still putting herself last.  “Your son, Edw...” She cuts off mid-sentence and begins to wail.

I love those two kids.  If real kids were as great as Seth and Leah, I might actually want some.  They just love everyone unconditionally. The way they immediately wanted to call Carlise and Esme grandma and grandpa was priceless and I'm glad you included Aro and  Zafrina too. They been so kind to all of them.  Now I can't wait for Sue to come back.  I know it will be a rough part of the story but I can't wait to see how you have the entire Cullen clan handle her.  Thanks again for this great story.

Maria



Author's Response:

Thanks again and again for reading and reviewing His Cimmerian View.  As the story comes closer to an end, it seems we have a lot of questions or comments that are geared toward answers already given in the story.  So we decided to give a little background to clear up the misconceptions and questions. 

Edward Masen: Father is dead, mother is bi-polar and left him in the care of Esme and Carlisle.  Mother is alive, but whereabouts are unknown.  Edward met ‘Tanya’ in college, they had a short affair and she left, after being caught in trying to get money from him.  Edward then shut down and treated all women as if they were not worth his time.  He refused to date or trust any women and he instead only was with a select few at Aro’s club, where he paid for sex.  Edward owns the restaurant where his parents used to take him to eat at, before his father died and his mother went off the deep end.  Edward is also one of the youngest English professors at UW. 

Bella Swan: Bella was born the child of single mother Renee Higbottom.  Renee met Charlie during one of his planned scams to get money.  Renee was very rich, as were her single father.  Charlie ended up impregnating Renee, but he was already married to Sue Clearwater.  Renee paid off Charlie and Sue to leave her and her child alone, but then subsequently died of breast cancer when Bella was three.  Renee’s father fought for custody, but grand-parents rights are not acknowledged in the state of Washington, therefore after Renee’s death the state went in search of Charlie Swan.  Once he was found Bella was placed in his and Sue’s care.  After Bella went to live with Charlie and Sue, she was treated iek a slave and was never allowed even normal things such as schooling, food, new clothes, and every other basic thing as parents we give our children without second thought.  Bella grew up starved for affection, so once she got to take care of the twins she gave all that affection she has been starving for to them.  Her love of the twins is unconditional as is their love for her.

I hope this helps answer a few questions and clears up a few things.  I’m not sure why, but we have several who think Sue is Bella’s real mother, and that is not the case at all. 

Thank you again so much for all the wonderful heartfelt reviews you all leave for us.  It is amazing to us that we have managed to instill such a deep devotion in our readers to our characters, and we are blown away by just how much emotion our readers feel for our characters.  I know that the character names belong to Stephenie Meyer, but these characters and the way they are in this story are in fact ours, she owns the names and appearance descriptions, but the attitude and demeanor and words are all ours.  Thanks, Kasi (& Nikky)

TEASER Chapter 28: Subject to changes during beta process.
I am so proud of Seth and Leah this past month has not been easy on them, but they have held their heads up high and got on with it.  There has been some name calling at school.  Now I know kids can be cruel but the things that they are saying, is coming from older mouths first.  Things no parent should be saying in front of their children.  Bella and I have addressed the school regarding the problems, but we’ve been brushed off like nothing is going on.  Mrs. Crown the principle said that people will talk.  She went on to point out that I was after all, Seth and Leah’s father, and I was shaking up with their big sister.  The way she said it, implied that Bella and I were doing something wrong.  After her rather rude little speech I called Caius and explained the whole thing to him.  To say that he was angry is putting it mildly.  He went as far as taking the principle in front of the school board, and she was put on a written warning.  Not only is her job and tenure in jeopardy, but her career as a whole is.  Since we have proof that she knowing let kids and adults harass the kids, she was warned that a lawsuit would be filed if the behavior continued.  Her biggest mistake was she was aware what the twin have been though these past five months, yet did nothing to help stop the harassment.

Caius informed me of another school that had room for more students.  It was little school that only had a little over one hundred students.  It went from kinder-garden to fifth grade and each class had mix of around fifteen children per classroom.  It was a private school, and ranked in the top ten of all schools in the state of Washington’s education program.  There was a sister school that managed the grades sixth through twelfth, also ranked in the top ten.   Both schools are quite prestigious and expensive, but cost is of no matter.  There are a few nice things the school is located close to where Esme and Carlisle live, but that also causes us transportation issues for to and from school.  Both Bella and I have talked about this and we all talked about it in family therapy.  Seth and Leah asked to just finish out this year of school where they are before deciding.  We agreed that this was the right choice for right now.

Author's Response:

Thanks for reading and reviewing His Cimmerian View.  Don’t forget to go read the BPOV chapter posted under the title Enduring His Cimmerian View.  A lot of things have taken place over the past few chapters, and there is much more drama to come.  I know some of you are mad that we let Paul get away with her, but we were sure to not let him get too far.  And as for Sue, she sure is one sneaky problem, isn’t she?  Well we haven’t seen the end of her yet, and wait until the next chapter... insert evil laugh.  I will tell you this much there is lots of involvement from the fire department in the next chapter.  A lot of you want the kids names changed, it is like you can partially read our minds, you will be seeing a conversation about that in the next chapter.  Some are speculating about the Jess2002 induced surprise that is coming, but we have not hinted on it at all in either teaser, it will have to be a surprise.  Speaking of teasers, after Monday when Fictionators posts their teaser, I am guessing that the Facebook group will be on a posting frenzy, because well damn that Sue is making yet another appearance in that teaser, be sure to check it out.  There is so much going on in the story that even I am on the edge of my seat.  I loved reading the ideas people have posted for torturing Sue.  She is a piece of work, but writing her kind of crazy is seriously fun.  I want to say a special thanks to all of those posts we have been getting about hot and juicy the lemons are.  Nikky whole heartedly passes off the lemon writing to me... and I love writing them.   There will be a couple really great lemony scenes coming up yet in the book, I am currently writing a really great one for chapter 31.  Well not many questions for you all, so we will wrap this up.  See ya next week, Kasi (&Nikky)

Chapter 29 Teaser, subject to changes in full beta process...

Seth and Leah have just gone to sleep for the night.  I’m cleaning up the kitchen when Bella walks in.  “Hey, baby. I’m almost done.”

She gives me a little smile, but it’s strained. “I’m worried about Seth and Leah. They seemed quieter tonight than usual.”

I put down the dish towel and wrap my arms around her.  “We’ll be fine, baby. They’ll be fine.”  I hold her face and make her look me right in the eye.  “I will NEVER let her hurt any of you.  The three of you are my life now, and I love you all so much.” Bella nods her head and steps back, taking my hand in hers.  Her eyes travel down to my watch, and she trails her fingers across the band. 

“Baby, what’s wrong?”

She looks up at me and frowns.  “I was just thinking about my past.  There was this one time that I saw one of mo... her friends when I was at the park.”  Bella stops, and I know what’s coming, but I wait for her to say it.  “I had fallen down when a boy on his bike knocked into me.  Her friend... he gave me a muffin.”  Bella’s eyes meet mine, and I know what she’s trying to say, yet I give her the time I know she needs to gather her thoughts.  “I think that friend was you. I mean... was it you?” 

My hand moves to her face, and I caress her cheek as I nod my head.  “Yes, baby, it was me.  I am so sorry. I should’ve saved you that day.”

Bella shakes her head at me.  “I wanted you to save me. Even though I didn’t know you, I wanted to go home with you.  I wanted you to come back and take me with you.  At night, I used to dream about you, but I could never see your face – just the watch.  If you had saved me then though, Seth and Leah wouldn’t be here.  They are worth everything I went through and so much more.”

I pull her toward me, hugging her tightly.  “I still wish that I had saved you from her... from all of them.  I will not fail you or my children again.”

Hmm.  Oh and that Mrs. Crown bitch, if she was a real person, I would go right through my IPad and kick her ass to hell and back again!!! Yea!! Bella for telling her off. I love it when she gets ticked off enough tell people how it is. Oh heres a thought, what if it's Roselie & Royce were the ones that were working with Sue.

Hello, thanks again for reading and reviewing this story.  Nikky and I put a lot of work into these chapters; as well do a large group of ladies who have become not only our sounding boards, but trusted members of our team.  I was shocked that the backlash on the pregnancy was not larger than it was.  I was very skeptical about making Bella pregnant and ironically Jess2002 (WHO HATES IT THAT EVERY STORY BELLA GETS KNOCKED UP) said it had to be done now, because (knowing our future plot line) it was the perfect fit.  So if you are one of the (so far) two negative reviews about the pregnancy we’ve gotten, please know that your reaction was shared at first.  After we thought it over it was easy to see that it however enhanced the love story between Edward and Bella.   The gender of the baby is picked, as well as the babies name.  The story is quickly approaching finalization, and with it I feel a sense of loss. 

There haven’t been many questions, but there have been several comments about things that are complete misunderstandings.  So I figured I would list some of the ones I remember off the top of my head.

Edward wants to marry Bella, but he hasn’t yet proposed. 
Edward has been looking for a ring, and trying to his best ability to find out where his mother’s jewelry is. 
Edward is very rich, and doesn’t have to work, but like most people who are rich a great portion of his funds is wrapped up in investments, so not always does he have access to super large amounts of money. 
Edward’s father was quite a pianist and left Edward a rather large inheritance, as well as before his mother left she made sure to leave him money in a trust. 
Elizabeth knew she was ill and left thinking Edward would be better raised by Esme and Carlisle. 
Alice is not a blood relative of the Cullen’s, or Masen’s. 
Jasper and Rosalie’s parents died and in the will they left guardianship of them to Carlisle and Esme. 
Sue and Harry’s parents are dead, harry murdered them.
Bella’s biological parents are dead. 
Rose was always allowed to act out and as if she was better than everyone else. 

The next chapter is one you won’t want to miss for sure.  Before you sit down to read it, you may want to get a cold drink (not promoting booze, but I needed some writing parts of it), a few tissues, and be sure to tell yourself at least four or five times before you start reading – “Kasi and Nikky are happily ever after writers...”
Thanks again for the story love, Kasi (&Nikky)

 

 

Chapter 30 Teaser, subject to changes during BETA process.

Seth and Leah have taken to home schooling well; both are extremely bright children. Lucy resigned from her temporary position at the school, and is now helping us teach them at home.  Between the five of us: Lucy, Esme, Zafrina, Bella, and myself, the twins are receiving an excellent education.  They’ve both been a little more edgy lately, and upset about what happened with Sue. It’s been causing both of them to have more nightmares than usual.  Samantha’s advice was simple: just keep helping them feel safe and secure in their home.  We’ve talked about it several times, and I think they now understand that the school did something wrong.  I also know that they believe we will keep them safe.  

Mrs. Crown has been fired over her behavior, as were four other staff members.  This led to the papers getting ahold of the full story of what happened at the school.  When the story first came out, all that had been said was that there had been an attempted abduction. Since then, though, someone had talked – my guess would be Mrs. Crown – and it’s been all over the local news and in the papers.

 Thankfully, Seth and Leah’s names have been kept out, but reporters did manage to get some of the story behind Sue, Charlie, and Harry.  They were also able to gather some information on Bella, like the fact that she raised her siblings from birth, but they did not focus on this.  They focused, instead, on how Bella had to have known that her Uncle and parents were hurting and killing people, and hid it instead of going to the authorities.  

They talked about how when she worked, she left the children unattended and neglected.  That one line hurt Bella the most, and I had a hard time trying to calm her down. Of course, it also upset Seth and Leah.  To say I was ranting and raving over the phone lines to just about anyone who would listen, was an understatement. I had to take several deep breaths and remind myself that I supposed to help reduce the stress, not add to it.

I'm glad Sue was finally caught, but sad too because that means this story is close to ending.  I can't wait to see how her pregnancy goes! Can you please give Emmett a really unbelievably great girlfriend before you end it though.  Him and Cam need someone to love them too. Can Jane find away into the jail to have a little of her "special fun" with Sue! Yeah 'cause that would be great.

Maria



Author's Response:

Well it seems that most everyone is happy that Sue is caught, but many of you are unhappy that she wasn’t tortured first by our dear Jane.  No worries our little Jane will eventually be paying Sue a visit.  Many seem to be worried that Sue will escape or get away; well rest assured that we have no intent on letting that fruit-loop free.  She is toast.  It seems that less people are disgruntled by Bella being pregnant, now that chapter 30 posted.  As the next few chapters post, I am thinking most if not all people will understand why Jess told us it was the perfect fit.  Nikky and I have added to but not really changed much of the original story-line.  I love when you all make suggestions and we’ve already written it into the story.  The next chapter has a few suggestions in it, that oddly enough were written before they were suggested.  I know that some of you are sad that this will be coming to a close, but there will be MANY – MANY more out-takes to come.  We actually discussed some future plotting things today and have a whole other out-take to add to the Enduring His Cimmerian View, in Edward’s POV to boot.  A lot of you want a Jane’s POV and well we have decided that it will be the next one released, do I hear the cheering already?  Yep... pretty sure I do... LOL.  We really want to say THANK YOU again and again, for reading, reviewing and loving this story so much... it has become a HUGE part of our lives and we both put a lot of work into it, as well as the wonderful group of gal’s we have keeping us from looking stupid. 

Thank you, and we will see you with the next update.  Kasi (& Nikky)

 

Chapter 31 teaser, subject to changes during beta process.
Tomorrow we are scheduled to be in court.  Since it is the same day as my birthday, I have refused to do anything but celebrate us getting full custody of Seth and Leah.  I am thinking positive.  Bella has refused to let my twenty-ninth birthday go by without doing something.  Seth and Leah soon joined in and I lost the battle.  So tonight we are having a family dinner, and everyone is going to be here.  Bella decided that I should also receive my gifts tonight from everyone.

I watch her making sure everyone has drinks before she sits me in the middle of everyone.  Seth and Leah come up to me first.  Seth hands me small box, and Leah hands me two envelopes.  I open the envelopes first.  The first envelope contains a certificate for being the best dad, signed by both Seth and Leah.  The second envelope holds a homemade birthday card from them.  I whisper out an emotional thank you to them in their ears, before opening the box Seth gave me.

As I open the box, I see it’s a necklace.  It is platinum with dog-tag like disks of metal hanging from it.  The first tag says ‘Dad’.  I look at the next which says ‘Seth Masen’ on it as I turn it over I see the other side has his date of birth.  The next has ‘Leah Masen’ again the back has her date of birth.  The last tag is blank and I look up questioningly.

“It’s for when Bean’s born.”  I look up at Seth and Leah and pull them both in for a hug a kiss the heads.

“Thank you Little Man and Princess.” I watch them go back at sit down, after we share a few more hugs.

The proposal was great and Sue's behavior in the court room was exactly what I would expect. I can't wait to found out who her partners in crime are. I still think one of them is Royce King just by the way he acted at the ball. Don't forget, Emmett needs someone nice.

Thanks for the great chapter, Maria 



Author's Response:

Thanks for reading and reviewing His Cimmerian View.  I am very sorry for the lateness of getting this review reply to you.  I always write them out and Nikky sends them to everyone on FFN and I send them out to everyone on TWCS and Twilighted.  With the move, I am without internet, so needless to say we got a bit of a delay.  We are hoping that the delay will not cause an issue in the normal posting, however we may run late getting chapters 33, 34 and 35 posted.  This has put me behind by more than a week, so I hope you all are understanding in regards to the situation.  The reviews have been wonderful, and Nikky tells me that there haven’t been a lot of questions.  The next chapter will be loved and hated, but trust in the fact that Jane has a plan for Sue.  Thanks for being such loyal readers, we love and appreciate every wonderful review and comment you all leave us.  HUGS!  Kasi (&Nikky)

 

Teaser for 32 subject to changes during beta process

“What do you want Pet?” Sue sneers out.

Bella look at her, and I nod my head in encouragement.  “I want to know why?  Why you didn’t love them?”

Sue shakes her head.  “That’s easy, because they were meant to be mine and Charlie’s, but instead they had to come out being HIS.  Every time I looked at them, all I saw was that stupid fucker.”

Bella looks at her shaking her head.  “Well I was Charlie’s child and you didn’t love me.”

Sue laughs sarcastically, and she shows her teeth as she makes a face.  “NO, you are right about that.  I don’t love you, I never have and I never will.  I wanted something that was mine and Charlie’s, I deserved that.  What I didn’t deserve was for your whore of a mother to intentionally get pregnant to try and steal my man from me.”

I chuckle out loud at Sue’s delusional attitude, and Sue growls at me.

“There are only two people I love in this world that is Charlie and Harry and you took both away from me,” Sue says caustically as she turns her glare at Bella.

“I want to know what you were planning to do with Seth, and the baby that belonged to Tanya, what was your plans?”

Sue laughs at Bella’s question in her evil sarcastic way.  “You really want to know?  Well I’ll tell you,” she says with a now huge happy smile.

That was a great chapter. The wedding was great and so were the speeches. I was surprised at Edward's mother showing up but I'm glad that that went well. I can't wait for Jane's play date. HeHeHe! Oh and yea!!! Emmett's getting a girlfriend. 

Thanks, Maria 



Author's Response:

As things are winding to a close Nikky and I wanted to take this opportunity to say that we are very grateful for all of your reviews and the time you put into reading our story.  Our next plans are to work on the several POV’s that you have all asked for.  The Jane POV will for certain be the next POV chapter we post. 
As for the next story we plan to write, well Nikky has this uncanny ability to get a tiny idea and go freaking CRAZY with it and so now she has already hammered out a decent start on a new story...  AND what a story it will be... How about a story of a virginella who loves to dance, and an olderward who lives in the BDSM lifestyle – we know been done before right?  Yeah well knowing us... do you really think it won’t have a few twists?  Besides as wonderful as we write bad guys, you know you can’t wait to see what kind of crazy this will bring on.  This BDSM story will of course have SEX in it, but it will not be all about sex, nor will the next chapter of HCV. 
A couple people have mentioned that they hope the whole next chapter is not just full of a bunch of sex acts, and honestly HCV has never been about a bunch of sex acts.  Yes there have been some explicit scenes in the story, especially regarding Edward when he was attending the club, but this story has never needed sex to be readable... and our next story will be the same way.  We also have a stalker story on the burner, and the BDSM may turn into a really big drabble or one-shot.  Either way you’ll be seeing MUCH more from Nikky and me. 
I am also writing a story with Jess that will start posting fairly soon under the name JessAndTAT that will be called Bases Loaded. 
I don’t think that there are any loose ends yet to tie up, other than Rose, and you will learn more about her in the Epilogue.  If there is something else you want to know let us know right away and we will get it answered and or addressed in the Epilogue.
As always and again, thank you so very much for being such wonderful and loyal readers.
Kasi (&Nikky)

Teaser for Chapter 34: Subject to changes during Beta process.
I look at Bella who is sound asleep, in bed.  I smile pushing her hair from her face. I rented us a villa and we haven’t left the bedroom for longer than half hour all weekend. I know that things will change today.  She still has no clue about where we are.  I chuckle remembering the car ride here and how she looked around trying to work it out.  All she knows is that we are still in America.

My phone beeps I pick it up and read the text, seeing that my first surprise will be here in just over an hour.  I get out of bed head to the kitchen to make Bella breakfast in bed.  I play music as I fry her eggs and bacon, being really careful of my delicate parts, since I’m not exactly dressed.  Ha, the naked chef has nothing on me.  Once breakfast is ready I head back with a try and place it on the bedside table.

“Baby it’s time to get up,” I whisper in her ear. 

I watch her smile as she stretches and wakes up.  “Hmm, no – to tired.  Come back to bed and cuddle with me, or better yet help me wake up the good way – like you did around three this morning.”

I chuckle shaking my head at her, but stop to kiss her before speaking.  “As much as I would love to take you again baby, over and over – I can’t right now.  I have a surprise for you and you need to eat your breakfast and get washed before it arrives.  Because once it’s here I’ll be taking you out for the day and you will finally know where exactly we are at.”

She opens her eyes wide and smiles at me.  “You got me a surprise?”

Wow I can't believe it's over. The epilogue was great! I love how you closed out the Harry and Sue part and I really love the way you tie up the "Rose" part of the story. You had her suffer for a while but still had Bella and Edward show her compassion as only they can. I liked the timelines too. And I think this will forever be my most favorite "Jane". She was a diabolical woman with the heart of gold. Who could ask for a better friend.  I will miss this story but will keep you guys on alert. This was such a great story that I don't want to miss anything you guys may come up with next.

Thanks, Maria 



Author's Response:

This has been a fantastic journey and we are sad yet excited that we finally clicked completed.  Keep in mind to watch out for Enduring His Cimmerian View to update, there are a few of those yet to write and post.  There is not a real posting schedule for those, but they will be written. 

Nikky and I are writing a couple more stories at least together and we hope to see you checking them out too.  We have a stalker story coming soon, as well as a BDSM/Olderward story coming out.  We also have a pretty large one-shot that will post soon, that we wrote for the Forbidden Fruit contest.  We can’t tell you the name of it yet, but there are a TON of great stories entered in the contest.

I started posting the new story collaboration I am doing with Jess2002, it is called Bases Loaded and you can find it under the author name of JessAndTAT.

We again thank you all so much, Kasi (& Nikky)

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.

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.

And I was so glad that Bella remembered that she told Edward that she loved him.   Is there are back story for Det. Blacks need to get Edward so badly that he is harassing Bella?  I can't wait for the next chapter. I will keep your mother in my prayers.

If you struggle writing this chapter, it does't show. It was great. I though Edward was going to say that Mike Sr. had killed his wife and himself but was relieved that it was just him and Renee. Really! Who cares about those two? I liked that Marie was able to screw things up for the two if only a little. But then my heart broke the way she yelled for her momma. Now when you say that B & E will get their HEA but that it's going to be different, they're gonna still be together, right? I hope so.

Thanks, Maria

Summary: Past Featured Story

Bella Swan works as a nurse at Cook County Hospital in the ER. She's older and desperate for love. It's hindered by her shy personality and plump body. Her father, whom she lives with, teases her relentlessly for being fat and single.

Edward Cullen, thirty-three, is hired as a doctor in the ER. He's getting over a divorce. He moved to Chicago to be closer to his family: sister, Rosalie, and brother, Jasper. Rosalie is younger than Edward by ten years and is struggling with an eating disorder brought on by a heinous rape of her ex-boyfriend. Jasper, twenty-seven, is finishing up his doctorate in history.

Bella is charmed by this new doctor in the ER. He's kind and thinks about his patients and maintains a friendly rapport with the nurses and orderlies. Edward is intrigued by the sad nurse who does her job efficiently but doesn't have a sparkle in her eyes.

Will she allow Dr. Cullen into her life or will she let her insecurities get in the way of her happiness. Perhaps, Dr. Feelgood can write her a prescription. A prescription for love...

I have a very bad feeling that Bella is going to be pregnant with I'm guessing is going to Laurent's baby. Please don't do that to her.  And when she went to the doctor the day after the party, didn't they take a blood test? That would show the date rape drug in it, wouldn't it? Enjoying the story. Can't wait for the next update.

Author's Response:

Ok, I'll put your mind at ease, Bella is not pregnant but I'm afraid didn't have a blood test so has nothing on Laurent so he's got away with it.  I've had cystitus myself and just described my symptoms and came away with a prescription for anti-biotics.  Bella was too embarrassed to tell the doctor the full story so won't have automatically been given a blood test.

But Laurent is not going to come after her - the bigger problem will be the one that got away - James!

Oh well anyway, I'm glad she finally told Edward about what happened that night of the party. Hopefully he will understand why she didn't tell him sooner. Is Edward's father going to be a problem? Thanks for the quick updates. This really a great story!

Summary: Past Featured Story

Edward was 19.  Bella was 13.  They were next door neighbors.  Charlie was the chief of police.  Carlisle was a doctor at the local hospital. 

Edward’s little sister Alice was also 13 and Bella’s best friend. 

While home from college for the summer, Edward spent time with his little sister and her best friend so their parents could all go out for dinner.

Over the next several years, Edward and Bella became good friends, until the summer she turned 16 when she transformed before his eyes.

AH, ExB, Mostly EPOV, sort of coming-of-age, hopefully a little poignant, with a splash of angst until Bella's at least seventeen.  Mature for language, eventual lemons and a very spunky Bella.

I can't even begin to figure out what's up with Alice. Can't wait to find out though. And I'm so glad that Edward did not deny his relationship with Bella when the reporters asked. That right there should show Liz what type of man he is. Speaking of Liz, what is her problem? Is she pregnant? Jim said she was being hormonal. Of course that's no reason to be mean to Bella. Can't wait for next update.

Thanks, Maria 



Author's Response:

So virtually everyone has figured out that Liz (not Renee, who in this story is Bella’s hardly ever mentioned grandmother) is indeed pregnant.  Liz is not too old to have a baby, in this story right now she is only 33 years old, women well into their early forties are having babies without worry, so she should be more than safe.  Where you all have figured it all out, no one else in the story seems to know, other than Jim of course.  Liz is currently out of control; however she will not bend or change anytime soon.  Alice is a piece of work, and Bella is upset with her, but still loves her.  You will learn more about what is going on with Jasper and Alice soon, we promise.  Thanks for reading and reviewing, we think you’ll really love the next couple of chapters.

Teaser:  I open my eyes to see it is still dark out. I look at the clock and I see it is five in the morning. I look at Edward and he is sound asleep on his stomach with his arms under his head. Just as I go to wake him up for some morning lovin, I hear my door creak open. I lift my head to see Alice smiling at me. I quietly get up and we head downstairs. We make hot cocoa and go and sit in front the tree. Our parents still made us go to bed before they would put anything under the tree. I kind of liked it that way. Even though I knew Santa was real I still was able to have the element of surprise.

“Look at all this stuff,” Alice says with a giddy giggle. “Uncle Edward spoiled the shit out of you. From where I am standing I can count twelve gifts.”

“No way!” I say in a half whisper. I go to her and see my name over and over again. “Are there any stores open? I think I need to go buy him more. I only got him six gifts,” I say as she giggles.

“The gas station is open we can go buy him a box full of Twinkies,” she says as I smile.

I think the way she found out was pretty clever. I feel sorry for Jim because he caught Bella's wrath.  I like him. He seems like a good guy. But why didn't Liz tell Bella she was pregnant? 

Thanks, Maria



Author's Response:

Wow the overall consensus is that Liz is a class ‘A’ number one royal bitch, and well we would have to agree.  Some question how Jim could have been under the impression that Liz had told Bella.  Liz and James had chosen to not tell everyone yet, but he thought that Liz would have at least told Bella.  Isn’t ironic that James in our story is such a decent guy?  There was some questions regarding Esme and Carlisle and if they will ever marry.  Esme is against marriage and more on that will come into the story in later chapters.  Don’t want to give away the farm, before the crops have time to grow.  We hope that you all continue to love this story, thank for reading and reviewing.  Kasi & (Jess)~

“Here, let me help you. Don’t worry, you don’t have to walk.” I take her hand and I have her sit up with her legs hanging off the bed. She sighs at the different position. I climb on the bed and start to massage her back. She moans and sighs again as I move my hands over her bare back.

“Where did you learn this?” she asks with a moan and wince together.

“Am I hurting you?”

“No, the contractions are getting closer,” she says with ragged breath. “You’re making me feel better.”

“Edward taught me how to do this. Spring training took a toll on him,” I say quietly as I make small circles on her lower back.

“That’s nice,” she says with a groan as she sits up straight. “Get a doctor, I have to push.” I jump off the bed so fast that I feel like I’m running around with my head cut off. Before I can get to the door, the nurse I had been talking with comes in.

“Her contractions are really close,” she says to me as I nod.

“I was just coming to get someone. She says she needs to push,” I say as she nods.

I just discovered this story today and I have to say that I am hooked. I can't believe Charlie, now all of a sudden he cares? I'ld be a little skeptical too. How could a father take the word of some ex-drug addict who apparently was in trouble a lot when he was younger, over his own daughter who never was? Rosalie was great. I can't wait to see what Edward is going to do when he finds out what happened.

Thanks, Maria 

P.S. I know it's been just over a month, but I'm very sorry about your grandfather.

I'm so glad that you like this!  I'm going to work on more today, but it may not be posted until tomorrow - that's the day it's SUPPOSED to be posted, but I've been a flake.  Charlie is a tool, but I've decided he's not going to be an evil tool, just s stupid - needs to really apologize and beg - tool.  Edward's chapter is next, and he's going to find out everything!  WOOHOO!!!!  O_o

Thank you so much, he was an amazing man and I still miss him. <3

Let me just say that your story "Always On My Mind" is a favorite of mine so when I read in your notes that you had a new story starting, I knew I had to read it. I'm glad I did because it's really good. Liam is as cute as he can be. I'm glad that Edward is so caring and good to him. I feel there is a reason in his past that makes him act this way with him, but what do I know. I also have a feeling that the douche bag Nessie is bringing home is Jacob. I can't wait for the next update to see if I'm right.

Thanks, Maria

I like this Jess. She seems pretty nice. And Esme is as welcoming as ever too. No way anyone could not love little Liam.  Can't wait to here about Edwards past. Looking forward to the next update.

Thanks, Maria

Summary:

He scrunches up his nose. "You know, you seemed to like me more when you thought I was dying." I gasp, shocked and embarrassed. "I didn't think you were dying." He's smiling. Like a big toothy smile. Ugh! I can already tell he likes to mess with people. "No, but you sure thought I was in a coma and had amnesia." Dammit! He had me there. BPOV. AH. No Angst

This story is just too funny.i hope she has a couple of more visits before she realizes that he is not in a coma, because her stories are hilarious! And to be a fly on the wall when she figures it out would be priceless. Can't wait for the next update.

Holy Craps! I don't even want to know what he's gonna do to Demetri and Eleazar. I have a feeling it's gonna be worst than what just happened to Alecto. If that's posible. And as an Italian woman with a temper my husband says would scare the Devil himself when someone messes with my family, I would almost want Edward to deal with me than his mama. To bad, so sad for you Tanya. Can't wait for the next chapter! It's going to be great, just like the previous 7, but I have a feeling that it ain't going to pretty.

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays,  Maria

I thought this was a great chapter. You know, some may think that Edward's weak for going to his mother, but you know what? I recall several years back, there was a report on the news that one of the most notorious mafia families in Sicily was headed up by a woman. They reported her to be evil and heartless. Just 'cause your a woman doesn't mean your soft. Can't wait for the next update.    Thanks, Maria

I think it's much more scary to hear the things happening than to see them. She probably would have passed out from the sight of what was happening. Where's the fun in that? Just imagining what was happening to them, would eventually be happening to me, would have had me begging for death. Will we be getting to Bella soon? I want to see her reaction when she finds out Edward's out.  Thanks for the quick update!

Wow! And that's an understatement! Great chapter. I knew that Edward's dad killed Tanya, but to turn the Russian mob loose on him & Bella was unexpected. I like that Bella is so feisty too.  Edward's mom can be just as sinister as him, so I can't wait to see what she does when she finds out what her husband has been up to.  Can't wait for the next update.    Thanks, Maria

I just found this story and read it in it's entirety.  Such a great story. It's sad in some spots, a little bit of drama, a lot of humor and a whole lotta cuteness with Lil Bit. I can't wait for the next update. Could the surprise visitor be Phil's long lost nephew? And could Alice be lucky enough that it is none other than southern gentleman Jasper Whitlock himself? I think it should be because just like Emmett and Edward were saying, Alice needs to find her "one".Thanks, Maria
