Used to be a die hard Sci-fi fanatic...but my new Twilight obession is quickly overshadowing it...LOL...loving every minute of it!

I am a mother of three rabuncious and energetic kids ages 11,8, and 6. They keep me on my toes.

I read alot in order to escape the rigors of real life and it was my sister who acutally introduce me to the Twilight Saga after raving about it for months. LoL...I never would imagine the world in which I now find myself. I have met a number of fans and have made lifelong friends along the way. A group of us known as the Edge girls met on Twilighters Anonymous and it was one of my fellow Edger's that introduced me to Twilighted. I love them all to pieces and am thrilled to find another site to fill my reading obsession.

10-27-10 Things in RL are on a rollarcoaster right now, so to my darling authors...I will R&R as I have time but know you are not forgotten. I love each and everyone of you and value the journey's I have been on with every story I read. You author's rock and help me thru some tough times and for that I can't thank you enough. =)

1-1-11 Happy New Years!
Wow...hard to believe it is the start of a new all my unbelievable authors; I write this to let you know that RL has really taken a toll. I am trying to catch up but recently I had a setback when my computer was dropped and now I have trouble logging on. As much as I would love to go buy a new computer, I can't with my budget being the way it is right now. So know that I will try and log on as much as I can at home and at work. As busy as work and my three kids keep me, unfortunatly the time I get to spend on here is limited but so very much appreciated. I regain my sanity here so, Thank you all for being there! Have a safe and blessed New Year!

 Better than carte blanche ey...

Well I must admit I love where you are taking these two. Thier first fight and they are doing well to figure things out. They really have come far in such a short time, I just hope Edward starts trusting Bella a little more with the beast within...

Isn't his beast-liness delicious?

Damn honey, I'm on fire! Thier night of debauchery had me breaking out the ice packs, and well lets just say a cold shower was involved due to my mind going into hyperdrive reading. *Where the hell is the hubby when you need them?*

I am thrilled they got the ILY out and now Edward has no fear of her not saying it back. He is just to cute. Well holy Hale and then some...she's moving in. Lord have can just imagine them not leaving their place in days when they first make love and with them living together...well I hope Edward has provisions for that marathon.

This is all so very exciting...

Congrats on the new lil one my dear! All I can really tell you is don't be afraid of the drugs especially if they have to induce. Talking from experience


Whoa well this was a bit of a clusterfuck wasn't it? But damn did those two finally get to some good talking and hopefully some compromises. It was brilliant and in the end I like where they ended up...

If you dont get back to us anytime soon, I will not fault you. Sleep when you can and know I'll be waiting whenever you can make it back to us...

Take care!

Summary: Feature


Bella had the perfect life.  She was married to her longtime best friend, had a great job and a beautiful son…until a careless driver stole her happiness.

Edward was fulfilling his dreams.  His residency was almost over, he had a gorgeous fiancé, and he was ready to move forward, starting a family…until a devastating break-up and a health scare in his family shake his foundation.

See, sometimes, life doesn’t go the way you want.  Sometimes, things can happen that change the course you choose.  And most of the time, it takes courage to walk down the new path.

What if that new path started with a tee ball team?


Big thanks to sigh-for-sigh for the banner!!


Play with me on the forum.  I now have a thread in the Alternate Human thread.

Thank God for emergencies... I am glad Edward was there to help Bella; maybe he can bring her out of her shell and help her deal. Seth is such a sweetheart...a definate extension of his father.

Author's Response:

Fate intervened.  Edward was in the right place, at the right time.  She is starting to heal, and he is definitely helping! 

The more I write Seth, the more I love him!!

O dear lord...Seth has had way to much excitement on this trip. I was horrified to see his head split up and felt a little dizzy myself just reading about it. It warmed my heart to hear how good Seth felt when Edward admitted to wanting to be his dad... and sighed rapturously to see Edward being so protective of Seth...

Author's Response:

Yes, she does! 


Seth is so fun to explore things through.  His excitement makes everything more fun. 

I hated that he got hurt...but the outcome was worth it.  Edward is realizing just what Seth (and Bella) means to him.


Thank you!

OH MY GOD!! *stares at the screen stunned, seriously stunned though I had a bad feeling this may happen* This chapter was exhilirating to say the least. Will you explain why Tanya choose to abort Edward's baby but not Volturi's. I guess that has me baffled. There will definalty be a showdown and I can't wait to read about it. Please UPDATE SOON!

Author's Response:

Sorry for the heartfail moment. 

I'm so glad you enjoyed the chapter!  You will know a lot after chapter 21.  So will Edward.  ;)  It should be up tomorrow. 

Let the fireworks begin!!

Nuts computer spazing again...lets try this again.

Wow...I thought Tanya was a selfish Bitch before but this conversation seals the deal. I can't believe she had the audacity to ask Edward to come back and help raise her baby! That girl needs to be slapped something fierce. I am glad Peter is finally growing a pair and putting his foot down with Charlotte. Charlotte needs to just let Tanya sleep in the bed she has made.

The zoo was awesome... a perfect way to end an afternoon after a horendous morning...I can't wait to see how you end this even though it does make me sad to think the end is near...sniff.

Author's Response:

Yeah...Tanya just sealed the Most Cruel and Selfish Bitch award, didn't she?  She is unreal! 

Peter did the right thing, finally.  He's not a bad guy.  Charlotte will suffer the consequences of her behavior.  You'll hear a little about it later.

I'm so glad you liked the zoo!  Thankfully, their trip wasn't ruined.

I'm dying thinking about ending this story!  I look forward to writing these characters - and to hearing from all of you!


Thank you for supporting me from the beginning!  <3

How is it those two don't really see the immense attraction for each other *sigh* I guess it's one of the reasons we love reading about's who they are...

There will be some uh oh moments along the  But, you're right, it is why we love Bella and Edward.  They are sometimes oblivious to what others see.

Twas a perfect fist date for the both of them and Seth was a riot...

Hope Bella doesn't overthink things to much so that she can move forward.

Author's Response:

Thank you!!

Seth is so much fun to write!! His innocence is great.  He is a typical kid, enjoying life - even in the middle of his mother's first date with Edward.  lol

Bella is starting to move forward.  Edward needs to deal with his issues, too.

I know good things come to those who wait...but...sometimes it's hard...

Ok whine much...sorry

I am now dying of curiosity as to what exactly happened with Tanya. LOL...would love to see Emmett kick Edward's butt...should be a riot.

Author's Response:

I totally understand - I'm not always a patient person!  But, Edward wasn't willing to spill in this chapter.  (Besides, it would have been a HUGE chapter if he would have.)  He will tell her everything soon.  Tanya isn't finished with him, she's still got a part to play...  Sorry, that probably doesn't help with the curiosity, does it? 

Let's hope Edward doesn't give Emmett a reason to thump him!  lol

OMG Did Tanya and Edward lose a baby? What a tragedy for Bella to maybe lose a would be so heartbreaking; it was hard enough losing Jake. Oh will Edward tell Bella what happened between Tanya and him any time soon...the suspense is killing me, but will try and wait patiently until you share with us...

Author's Response:

Your Edward questions will be answered soon.  I promise.  He's going to spill his guts to Bella.  He needs to be completely honest with her.  Patience...just a little more patience.

Bella suffered a lot.  Just the thought that she could have been pregnant tortured her.  But, she shared her feelings with Edward and that is so significant.


Thank you so much!!

Wow...what in the word does Tanya think she is doing? I kinda feel sorry for her and agree whole heartedly that she is running scared. Poor Esme and Billy to have to learn that they lost a grandbaby...however it was due to things beyound thier control. I am thrilled Bella and Edward confessed to each other... it will only bring them that much closer...

Author's Response:

Tanya is a selfish mess!  She really needs help - but not from Edward. 

The characters are facing two very different kinds of loss, but it unites them.  They are finally being honest with everyone around them.  And honesty is a great way to start a relationship.


Thank you!!

Well that was really heart felt and a bit heart breaking...poor Billy. I feel for him in his fear of losing all his family. Maybe it's a good thing Billy didn't know that Bella was pregnant when the accident happened but I have a funny feeling Billy knew about the lost grandchild.

I anxiously await your next update...

Author's Response:

I'm so glad that you get Billy!!  You are very insightful!!  Billy has lost so much, he deserves to have a bad moment here and there.

Sorry I nearly killed you...  ;)

My mind hasn't stopped racing lately.  These characters own me!!  They are all I think about!  lol

Chapter 14 is almost finished.  I'll probably submit it on Sunday night.  It should be up on Monday.  Deep breaths until then.  I think it's pretty good...can't wait to see what you think!
