We are back for our little EP haitus.
Do you feel rested and refreshed?
Did you get caught up in your EP reading?
Well, ready or not....here we go!
Chapter 57 - EPOV
Chapter 57 is from Edward's point of view and starts off after the visit from Aro for Edward's birthday. Bella is completely overwhelmed with the idea that Alec would vouch for her and that he could die for her mistakes. Bella has always lived with the fear of dying herself for other's mistakes, so this concept is unfathomable. What do you think Alec's motivation is for vouching for Isabella? Are his reasons personal or professional?
The next morning, Edward finds Isabella in the library. Bella tells him that she wants to learn. That's when the idea occurs to Edward that although Isabella could never go to a traditional high school, she certainly could get her GED. He talks with his father and Alec about it and Carlisle says it's Bella's decision whether or not she wants to get educated. Bella is so overcome with emotion over Edward wanting her to be able to get an education that she breaks down and sobs into his neck. Her life just continues to take her places that she never dreamed of.
Edward tries teaching Bella to play Twinkle Twinkle on the piano and he tries to keep his cool, which he does. Alec sneaks up on them and basically tells Edward in Italian that Isabella reminds him so much of Elizabeth and his father thinks so too. What do you think about that? Does it help to understand some of Carlisle's actions and attitudes.
Edward had a conversation with Aro before he left that he is keeping from Bella. It is obvious that Aro is trying to use Isabella from every angle to get Edward to join. He tells Edward that his joining is the only way to protect Bella.
The chapter ends with Edward hoping that what he and Isabella had "would be strong enough to come through the storm that was looming on the horizon". So Edward has a feeling some bad shit is going to go down....are his instincts correct? What do you think?
Best LOL moments of this chapter -
|mmmmmm......what do you think of Edward's braggiole?|
- The sexual innuendos with "Trouble" by Emmett and Jasper. Gotta love Jasper telling Bella to do it harder and Emmett saying "How the fuck are you going to teach her this shit if can't even get in the right hole?"
This fic might be angsty, but it definitely has many awesome LMAO moments!!! Just sayin.....
Chapter 58 - BPOV
Edward is pouting about having to go to football camp and Emmett is totally giving him shit about it. In the weeks leading up to his departure, he had tried to put on a happy face for Bella, until the day he actually had to leave. It really shows how strong Bella has become when she is able to have the confidence to tell him he has to go - even though it is killing her inside. So he finally goes, after saying "I'm not fucking going" a million times and Bella is apart from Edward for the first time since they began their relationship.
Emmett and Jasper keep Bella quite busy during the course of the week. Breakfast at the diner every morning with Emmett bright and early, the beach twice, game days, movies days and studying for her GED. Edward and Bella have a restless week without each other and to make matter's worse - they start the week out by playing phone tag for a day or two. They finally get into a pattern and are at least able talk on the phone once a day.
My favorite Emmett and Bella bonding moment is at breakfast the first day, at the diner. Emmett calls her little sis and that warms Bella's heart. Emmett says "Yeah, little sis. It's what you are. Someday you'll probably marry my shithead little brother and make it official". Awwwww! So sweet Emmett! and such a way with words! LOL
I love when Bella puts on the modest bathing suit that Rosalie picked up for her and is admiring her healthier, curvier body. She has come so far and grown so much! She says she wasn't sure if her being curvier was considered a good thing but it didn't matter because Edward seemed to like it.
The beach is where Bella runs into Jacob and finds out that Edward is forbidden from going there. She's not sure if Edward would want her to go there and is not sure if she should tell him she went. Our girls keeps getting fiestier and tells Jacob off for speaking badly about Edward.
Last, but not least, we get to the reason that Chapter 58 is one of my favorite EP chapters -
Edward and Bella's first phone sex! LOL
The conversation starts out completely innocently. Edward says, "Hey tesoro. Whatcha doing?" Just making small talk, you know. Then he kicks it up a notch by asking..."What are you wearing?" HELLO! annnnnd it just escalates from there. When Edward asked Bella to touch herself, I don't think he really thought she would do it. But, Bella is always amazing Edward, and much to his surprise, she plays along and they both get release they desperately needed.
The chapter ends with Edward returning from football camp. When he gets out of his car in the driveway, Bella being adorable, flies off the front porch and launches herself at him. Sweet reunion! Of course Edward being Edward says, "Well fuck. If I'm going to be getting greeted like that, maybe I need to go away more often"
Chapter 59 - EPOV
|Definitely the spot to break out the football manip - for you Fran!!!|
Chapter 59 is football camp from Edward's point of view. Of course he is rooming with Mike Newton. Wouldn't you know it? Edward is trying to keep his cool with all the guys, who just keep giving him shit. They know he has a short fuse and they keep trying to push his buttons. Of course he gets into a few scuffles throughout the week. The highlight of Edward's week was on the last day of practice Coach Clapp compliments his playing and tells him that some UW coaches have been expressing some interest in him. For once someone is telling Edward that he has potential in an area that doesn't involve a life of crime. So he's feeling good.
After Bella attacks him in the driveway upon his return, they go to bed as they are both exhausted. They talk about what Bella did all week and Edward gets pissed at Emmett for taking her to First Beach. When he confronts Emmett about it and throws the whole James incident in his face, Emmett basically puts Edward in his place. The next morning Edward thanks Emmett for taking care of Bella.
Bella shares some of the sketches she had made while Edward was gone. One of the meadow in particular catches his attention because Bella has only been to the meadow one time, yet she drew it in such amazing detail. Edward puts it together that Bella must have a photographic memory to remember such details from seeing it once, and for remembering all the facts she saw on Jeopardy.
Edward and Bella finally have a chance to reconnect in the bedroom and Edward is enjoying Bella's "newfound kinkiness". The chapter ends with Edward and Bella discussing their future and possible colleges. Edward tells Bella that they will go wherever she wants to go.
