Chapter 41

Carlisle’s POV (One month later)

No one was in the house when I arrived; Esme wasn’t expecting me. I left my briefcase in my study and had to come back for it. I was all the way to the hos
pital before I realized, which really pissed me off. I was distracted by Bella again this morning. I was glad the weather was nice again; she wasn’t hidden from me in jeans and sweaters any longer. I never wanted to see her in jeans again. She should always be in dresses; the shorter the better as far as I was concerned. As soon as I made my plans known to her, I would rectify her clothing. I couldn’t believe the crap Edward was allowing her to wear lately. I wanted her back in the clothes she wore before. She was beautiful then; hints of her assets flirting with my imagination.

I took a moment to stand at the window in my study to look for Esme. Since she didn’t know I was here, it was an opportunity to verify she was where she was supposed to be; not that I worried about her any longer. She knew what would happen if she wasn’t. She was working in her garden, like always. I had to admit its size has grown over the years and yet she still managed to keep up with it. I never understood her dedication. They were just flowers; nothing special. I let her have the garden as a reward for her good behavior once I had her under complete control. I almost bulldozed it down as punishment when she helped Renee escape. Destroying her relationship with the boys, especially Edward, was much more effective. It also helped him finally grow up and start acting like a man instead of the momma’s boy he had become.

The entrance to my home is remotely monitored by my private security team. They don’t operate on the grounds because I refuse to risk someone befriending our women and deciding to help them escape. My father learned that the hard way years ago. He was madly in love with my mother, but she was nothing but a whore. She cheated on him with one of his guards when I was about six years old and they ran away together. My father went insane looking for her. It took my father almost a year to hunt them down and drag them back. My brother and I watched him pull the trigger, executing her lover in front of us all. After that he built a wall around our home and moved the security team outside. My mother never set foot outside that wall until the day she died. My father taught us how to hold a family together; you never gave her a way to leave.

I caught Esme several times in the beginning trying to run away after I started letting her out on her own. She never knew when she was being followed and certainly didn’t like the punishment she received if she was caught trying to escape. I smiled wickedly. It was so much fun keeping her off balance; I felt like a cat playing with my very own little mouse.

Then, of course, they needed to watch over Rosalie and Alice for the boys. Since they were both so well trained, they never tried to run. They were content to stay where they belonged and were treated well because they didn’t run.

Now they watched over Bella. Someone always watched the school during the day. It was the one place she could escape from and I wouldn’t allow that. She was worth too much for Edward to lose her. Edward was quick to agree with me after Bella’s one attempt at leaving the school. Now she knows she’s watched, so she keeps her ass inside the building until Edward arrives. I was pissed that Edward still refused to use the basement to punish her. Everything he needed was in there to do whatever he wanted with her; he knew this. It would also give me access to her that I’ve been denied thus far. I know he punished her that day because her eyes were still red and puffy when they came down to dinner, but I wanted more.

I was livid with Sam the day of the ice storm. He had a new guy watching her who left when it started sleeting. He was the reason for her illness. The idiot cared more about his precious car than his job. Needless to say, he no longer had that car; I had it destroyed. If he wanted to keep his job then my commands were priority over anything else.

I began to turn away from the window when I saw Esme look up and laugh at someone on the path. I followed where she was looking and saw them. I couldn’t hear their words, but he was listening intently while she gestured with her hands. My eyes narrowed as I saw him laugh at whatever she said. He picked her up and spun her around causing her to shriek. When he put her down she punched his arm.

I held my breath in anticipation for him to drag her back to the house to administer discipline. I would finally get to hear her screams again. I was angered that instead he reached to pluck a flower from the rosebush beside them and bowed before her extending the rose to her like an offering. She took the rose, smelling it as he straightened and stood on tiptoe to kiss him. I watched in disgust as he smiled, tucking a stray hair behind her ear before they continued down the path hand in hand.

I turned away and sat at my desk to brood. I knew Edward would want her. He was always drawn to her even as a child. It was the reason I gave Edward less than perfect candidates for his bride. I needed to drag out his selection process until I had Bella. I knew my son wouldn’t pick anything less than perfection, which was Bella. I just didn’t take into account how much he would want her. He was as obsessed with her as I was.

I closed my eyes and remembered back to when she first arrived. She was quiet and timid, as she should be. She didn’t cry or beg when I told her of my plans for her. Charlie was very good at stripping girls of the will to fight. They always did exactly what was expected, no complaint, no argument. They were perfect.

Well, I didn’t tell her everything. Edward wasn’t even aware of my plans yet. I shifted in my seat, my fists tightening as I remembered her bent over my desk and the feel of my fingers pumping her tight ass. I slammed my fist on my desk in frustration. Fuck, I needed to get in her. I can’t believe she’s been here all this time and I still haven’t been able to get her alone. Edward never left her alone; if he had things to do he took her with him. I told him repeatedly to leave her to no avail. Now she spends her afternoons at Emmett’s picking up the slack from Rosalie still needing to take it easy. At least Rosalie was finally earning her keep, giving me a grandson after the fiasco of her last two pregnancies.

That was another problem I needed to address; Emmett’s attitude. He had become even more outspoken and belligerent in his behavior. He always was a wild card and impossible to control completely. I’d need to give some consideration soon how to get him back under control.

But back to Bella; I knew that trip to Phoenix was a mistake. She was perfect before they left. Now she was starting to develop an air of confidence that Edward was encouraging. She was changing him. All of my sons were beginning to change. I had complete control over my family before. If I’d known she was going to cause so many problems, I would have found another way.

Don’t get me wrong, I care about Esme. She’s still a beautiful woman and once I had her under control she became exactly what I wanted her to be. She was quiet and didn’t give me any trouble, but she wasn’t Renee. I wanted to kill her when Charlie showed up at the house with her in handcuffs. Charlie caught her trying to sneak out of his house after Renee drove away. It was obvious she encouraged Renee to run away. Renee would have never run without encouragement. I kept Esme strung up in the basement for a week releasing my anger and frustrations on her body. She received one small bottle of water and a protein drink each day, nothing else. At night she was chained to the wall. A week in the basement was a bit excessive, but she deserved every minute of it. She didn’t know just how much she had taken away from me.

I was in love with Renee in high school. She was the most beautiful girl in town. She had moved here during the summer before our freshman year. Charlie and I saw her at the same time. If I’d gotten to the gym 10 minutes earlier that first day I could have claimed her as mine. Instead I waited for Charlie like the great friend I was and we walked in at the same time. She was already dressed for her gym class in her little red shorts that hugged her ass and a tight white t-shirt that did nothing to hide her glorious breasts. Charlie and I both wanted her so we did the only thing we could to decide who would get their chance at her. We flipped a coin and I lost.

It was torture watching her with Charlie and then to see her walk down the aisle to him; forever out of my reach. My hatred of Charlie grew through the years watching him with Renee. He was so careless with her. He had the best girl in town but still slept around. He spent so much time down in La Push cheating on Renee that he didn’t keep a firm hand on her as she needed. Renee needed structure and guidance. She was too outspoken and rebellious. If only she had been mine. She would have wanted for nothing, I would have laid the world at her feet and she would have had no reason to fight me. She would have loved me and done anything to please me. When you love someone, you want to do anything for them. Of course, Charlie lost too in the end. He was such a fool to let her go and an even bigger fool to let her take Bella.

I felt no guilt giving Sam and Jacob the go ahead to eliminate Charlie. He was good at what he did but he was sloppy when it came to James. He never kept that damn boy under control. I already paid for one mistake with Alice, but if they had been successful in breaking through Bella’s hymen I would have killed Charlie myself. Edward was going to be the one to have that privilege, and then I planned to share her. She was made for Edward and me alone.

I planned everything from the moment Charlie told me Renee was pregnant again, this time with a girl. He hated that she had so much trouble getting pregnant and didn’t see any use for a girl. He had Renee longer than I had Esme yet I already had three sons. He would always only have the one. She wasn’t even supposed to get pregnant again after James. She had complications with James and was warned not to have more children. Charlie didn’t care; he wanted another son even if it killed her. He never cherished Renee the way I would have. I would have paid for the best specialists so that she could continue to give me my sons. Charlie was cheap and risked her life.

I was overjoyed at the news. If I couldn’t have Renee, then I would at least have her daughter, I knew she would understand. She would become my crown jewel. I knew she would grow into a beauty like her mother. She was supposed to have the added benefit of being trained from childhood. I had planned to have Charlie sell Bella to me when she turned 13 for one of my sons and complete her training myself. I would have paid any price he asked for her. I fought hard not to laugh when he told me how much he wanted for her. He really had no idea her real value. I set aside $1 million the day she was born just for her purchase. There was still over $300,000 in the account.

I unlocked my desk drawer and pulled out the file I kept. I knew where Renee went within a couple of weeks of her leaving; it wasn’t hard to guess she’d go back where she was from; she still had friends in the area. I never told Charlie; he didn’t deserve them and Bella was mine. It contained all the reports I received over the last ten years and the background check I ran on Renee’s new husband. I had to be certain he wouldn’t be a threat to Renee and Bella. Even though I couldn’t have Renee for my own I still loved her enough to watch over her. I had their wills naming his brother as guardian and trustee for Bella. Their wills were never filed, they were sent to me instead. It’s amazing how easy it was to convince a young attorney just starting out and in need of a wife to do you little favors. His wife was a freebie since I knew I would need to keep him in my pocket until I got Bella back. I even had the evidence Renee kept against Charlie. That had earned him a very nice honeymoon with his new bride.

I pulled out the stack of photos and started looking them over again for the thousandth time. I really enjoyed getting these over the years, seeing my precious jewel as she grew from a shy, awkward little girl with freckles into the beautiful woman she is now. I paid Sam’s cousin, Embry to relocate to Phoenix and keep tabs on Bella over the years. I knew who all of her friends were.Along with photos I had a copy of every one of her report cards. He monitored their internet activities and had installed several hidden cameras within the security system of their home. It was easy to see that Bella was everything I knew she would be.

I made several trips to Phoenix over the years to see her. I’d even been to a few of her softball games. I didn’t approve of her playing sports; too many risks for injury. I knew Bella’s appendix ruptured when she was 15. I told her surgeon I was Bella’s father and Renee wouldn’t let me see her if she knew I was there. After all, if things had worked out differently in high school, she would have been my daughter. She should have been mine. He convinced Renee to go home and rest so that I could spend the night with Bella. Renee never knew I was there.

I spent the last two years planning what to do with Bella. The original plan was to take Bella after she moved to college. Embry would take her from the campus of whatever school she attended on the first day. Out of my love for Renee, I wanted her to see Bella graduate high school and enroll in college as this would be the last memory she would ever have of Bella. I wouldn’t take this time away from my love.

Embry’s report over the summer indicated a boy had taken an interest in her and from all indications Renee was going to finally allow Bella to date. I moved up my plans for Embry to take her from school the day after her birthday. I wouldn’t take her on her birthday; that would be unfair to Renee, but I wouldn’t allow some boy to get to her before Edward either. It was going to be a risky move but I had to take her before it was too late.

I almost lost it when the call came that there had been a car accident with fatalities until I knew Bella was safe. I was saddened to learn of Renee’s death but it stopped me from doing something desperate. Their attorney came in handy, blocking her stepfather’s family from fighting for custody. He handled everything according to my wishes. As her biological father, and with a new will in place, she was sent to Charlie and ultimately me.

All my plans changed with Renee’s death. I wouldn’t need to take Bella now. I just needed to manipulate Charlie to bring her to me. I knew Charlie couldn’t resist the chance to have Bella back in his home. He hadn’t had any new girls to work with since Alice and was excited about the idea of keeping Bella permanently for himself and James. He really was a sick mother fucker. However, I knew Charlie loved money above all else and would be too greedy not to sell her to me once I planted the idea in his head that Edward wasn’t thrilled with his selections.

When Charlie brought Bella to the hospital that day, it was like looking at Renee at seventeen again. I enjoyed giving her the exam I knew was unnecessary. I had all of her medical records and knew she was a virgin. She was constantly watched and it had been verified at every annual exam since she started her cycles and reported to me. It helped that her doctor was an old fraternity brother who was extremely happy with his very young wife. Charlie never knew two of the girls he trained would be living in the same city as Renee and Bella.

He never was very bright. I had to lead him anywhere I wanted him to go. Every idea, every decision came from me. Charlie was nothing but a puppet and I was his puppet master. Before he died, I took great relish in explaining just how long I’d been planning this and the fact that I’ve known all these years where his wife was. I still managed to exact my revenge on Charlie for taking Renee from me even if it wasn’t how I’d planned. I had wanted Charlie to see me with Bella; how I would make her mine. The blank stare that widened with shock as everything became clear to him was a decent consolation.

His comments about Bella’s abilities and submissiveness proved that even though she got away for those ten years, her subconscious remembered Charlie. It remembered the few lessons he was able to teach her in her first seven years.

I have to fix the problem she is creating now. Edward is giving her too much freedom. She will only expect more. As she is now, she will fight me and I can’t have that. I need her complete submission for my plans. I want to openly share her, not hide my desire for her any longer. I would even love to have a son by her after she gave Edward a couple of sons. My life would finally be on track where it should have been since high school.

I saw my computer screen blink that I had a message from my brother. I put everything back in the file and locked it away again. I opened his email and skimmed through. My nephew, Demetri was ready for a wife but without Charlie, Marcus needed some guidance on procuring and training. I smiled. I knew exactly what to do to solve all our problems.

I picked up the phone and called Marcus as I turned back to the window. I watched her as my plan formed in my mind.



“Hello Marcus. How would you and Demetri like to come for a visit? We can discuss his problem. It’s been a while since you’ve been down.”


“Sure, we have some time. Demetri and I can be there in a few days. He’s been working out of the office in Hong Kong the last couple of years and just got back last week,” he said. “We’ve depended so heavily on Charlie’s skills over the years that it didn’t occur to me until we were talking that I would need to make other arrangements.”


“That’s what I want to discuss with you. Is Demetri planning on working in Hong Kong or Alaska after he marries?” Worst case Alaska wasn’t too far to see her. I knew Demetri wouldn’t have a problem with my plans with the right incentive. I wouldn’t allow him to take her all the way to Hong Kong though. I wanted her accessible when I needed her.


“His plans are to work here for the first couple of years or so,” he laughed. “You know, make sure the bugs are worked out. He hasn’t decided past that yet. Why do you ask?


I laughed with him. The first couple of years were always the hardest until they were completely broken in. “How do you think he would feel about settling in Alaska permanently if I let him take over all future training needs? I can teach both of you Charlie’s methods and we can find Demetri a girl from the center here. I financially support the center to keep the trustees complacent. They’re just overjoyed that all the girls Charlie took under his wing landed on their feet in good marriages. You may want to consider becoming a supporter after this if you continue to use them. They usually have a wide range of choices since it’s the only center for female runaways within 100 miles. I give all the girls their physicals when they arrive so I already have a file of prospects to choose from. Plus you won’t have the added headache of her knowing the area when you get back.”

I thought internally; if I ended up letting Demetri have Bella, she would never leave the walls of Marcus’ compound ever. That would be part of the agreement. I wanted her kept under constant guard so that she was always protected and kept safe for me. I’d even send Jacob or Embry to be her bodyguard so she’d never escape or be hurt. I knew they were dependable.


“That actually sounds like a great idea. I’ll have Demetri email you his preferences when he gets in tonight. I think I can speak for my son and say he would be honored to take over training for the family. Thank you for thinking of him.”


“Yes, well I had thought Edward would take the role, but he’s proving to be a disappointment in that area. I know Demetri won’t let the family down.” I had planned that if Edward got to handle all the training then he wouldn’t mind so much letting me have Bella on occasion. He’d be plenty happy.


“What’s up with Edward? He has always worked so hard to earn your respect. I’m surprised that would change. I always thought of your boys he was the most like you.”


“Yes, well we have a little problem with his selection that he doesn’t seem to be able to handle. That’s part of why I want Demetri to come. It’s been too long since Edward has had a challenge and I think this may be just the thing to get his head back in the game.”


He laughed, “So do I tell Demetri before we get there what the challenge is so he’s prepared?”


”No. This time I think it will be obvious when he sees her.”


“What if he decides he wants her? Are you going to let me buy her? You know I don’t want my son to be disappointed,” he warned.


“I want Edward to keep her, but he’s not to know that. He’s going to have to earn her now. I’ll pick an alternate for Demetri if things work out with Edward. If it doesn’t then we’ll negotiate something for her. I know once Demetri sees her he will want her so I’ll be sure the alternate selections are among the best so he isn’t disappointed,” I assured him. “But we’ll talk more when you arrive. Have Demetri email his behavioral checklist tonight and call me when you know your flight.”


“Alright, I’ll call you later tonight. Goodbye.”

I hung up the phone and finished formulating my plan. I heard a door slam somewhere in the house and two sets of footsteps running up the stairs.

“Bella, you’re going to pay for that!” Edward was yelling at her.

“No! Edward, please!” she shrieked. “I’m sorry! I swear!”

I smiled. It was about time. I stood and went quietly to the door to watch unobserved. I saw Bella get to the landing a few steps ahead of Edward on her way up to their room. She kept turning back to see how close he was to her. I saw the expression on her face and felt my blood pressure rise. Instead of the fear I expected to see at the punishment she obviously knew was coming, she was laughing as she turned up the next flight of stairs to the third floor.

I saw Edward; his hair and shirt were dripping water. He leaped across the landing at her and caught her, making her scream again. He threw her over his shoulder and continued on to their room.

“I got you now. There’s no escape for you. I’m going to tickle you until you can’t breathe and then I’m going to see how much you like a cold shower, you wicked girl,” he laughed.

“Uncle! Uncle! I give up!” she screamed, laughing. She was hitting his back, hanging upside down. “Please don’t, I need to pee.”

I watched in disgust as he set her down at the top of their landing, laughing at her. “Okay, no tickling. What about a kiss until you can’t breathe instead?”

She bit her bottom lip in that sexy way she does and tilted her face up to him as he leaned down. She shoved him back and took off again to their room. “You have to catch me first!”

Edward growled and took off after her. I heard their door slam twice and then her giggling before silence.

I picked up my briefcase and headed down to my car smiling. That type of juvenile behavior was about to end. I could feel control coming back within my grasp already. I whistled all the way to the hospital. It was going to be a great day.

  17. Edward and Bella sound do cute, I just hope Carlisle doesn't mess their relationship up. I seriously hate him!

  18. Holy crap! I thought Carlisle was sick before, now I really want to throw up, then kill him myself! I hope Bella comes to her senses and tells Edward about Carlisle before Demitri gets there. I can't believe Carlisle wants to share Bella! I really don't think Edward would ever do that. Poor Esme. I am still wondering what she is hiding in that garden of hers. At least we all know now what happened to Renee's will. Carlisle is one sick f*!##. I really hope karma comes back on him, and really soon too! Thanks for updating so quick! I can't wait to see what happens next.

  19. Ahhh! It's picking up again. CRAZY. I love the new twist, but am a little confused on the whole Demetri thing. Can't wait to see where this all goes. I see Edward slipping a bit here. Or them having to fake the old times to stay together, which would be kinds great for them to work together. Carlisle is such a creep.

    Thank you for the update. That was super fast and I love you for it. :D

  20. ok i thought carlisle was sick before sick is a flippin understatement! the things that run through my mind to do to him are not pleasant and probably should never be typed.

    as a side note i am completely hooked on this story. i'm loving the new edward scared of the consequences of carlisles douchebagary! impatiently waiting for more *wink wink* but seriously i am waiting

  21. oh man..carlise scares me. this chapter scares me! i hope edward protects bella and they realize whats going on and get the hell out of there! aaah!
    cant wait to see where this goes, i just hope it doesnt get really bad for bella :[ poor girl.

    cant wait for the next chapter!

  22. You scare me lots, Mic! I'm afraid for Bella and even Edward. I don't THINK that Carlisle would hurt Edward, but after what I just read, nothing would surprise me. Such a sick twisted man. Plese let Bella find the courage to tell Edward about her fears so he will get her out of the house before Demetri arrives. I don't know if I can handle The Evil Ones trying to break Bella again.

  23. Wow, this is getting more and more deeper with what Carlisle wants with Bella. Love it :)

  24. Okay, for real, Carlisle scares the crap out of me. Holy cow, and he involved so many shady people in controlling Bella and Renee. And I can't believe he wants to openly share Bella and father a child with her. Sicko!! I am seriously scared about what is about to go down but hope Edward does the right thing by her. Is Esme's garden about to come into play? *scary* On a side note, thanks for the quick update!! ~Vicki~

  25. Wow, talk about being twisted. Isn't the whole purpose of having the "perfect wife" is that she belongs to someone and she isn't suppose to be shared? Now I understand while Carlisle is twisted in the head, he saw his dad do the same thing. I do wonder if all the men that purchase their wife, if they all stick with the same theory or do they change? I know that Carlisle and Marcus aren't going to change but what about the rest of the men?

  26. Damn, he is one sick mofo!! I can't believe how long he's been orchestrating this. And what's even more sick is that he doesn't just want Bella for himself, he wants to share her!

    It's disgusting how deeply he is immersed in this whole training thing. please let Edward stay strong so that he can keep Bella and let her have enough trust in him to finally let him in on what carlisle has told her!!

    I hope that Carlisle has a very painful end and that is comes real soon. It would serve him right to be put in the basement and experience what he has put Esme and other women through. The Cullens need to unite against him.

  27. I definitely agree w/ the first comment: carlisle is one scary motherfucker! lyk srsly.

    and the idea of demetri and marcus coming to the house is just terrifying. Why hasn't she told Edward yet?! Why haven't they moved? What's in Esme's garden?!

    sry for the freak out. Lol. I <3 this story--even though it's crazy and fucked up I'm a total addict--and I can't hardly wait for the next chappie!!!!

  28. I feel sick. I don't think I have felt like this since the first few chapters that really detailed the abuse. Carlisle's plan is so much worse than I could ever imagine. I still can't figure out if he really loved Renee. Would he have treated her the same way as he treats Esme? Some of things he says makes me think no, but then seeing how he was raised (I kind of thought this whole training wives started with him and Charlie, but has it been going on longer?)
    I was happy to see he didn't have any thing to do with the car accident. How did he get Renee's evidence on Charlie? I wouldn't have thought she would have given her only copy to a lawyer - I don't see her having that kind of trust.

  29. I hope Carlisle DOES send Bella with Demetri and Jacob as her bodyguard.....then J&B will fall in love, while he protects it was meant to be!!! Sorry folks - Team Jacob all the way

    But yea....Carlisle is a little messed up!

  30. I just don't even know what to say. Carlisle is just...death. I hope he gets what's coming to him, preferably at the hands of Esme. I hope she kills that sorry bastard...perhaps castration...say one inch at a time.

    Damn, this really got to me.

  31. Oh god, oh god, oh god...I really am creeped out right now. He is one sick puppy. I am actually sick to my stomach thinking of what is coming. Oh, I hope Edward can get to her in time...yikes! Please, let him get to her before Carlisle and Demetri damage her.

  32. OMG!!!!!! Thank you for this update.

    Carlisle is really sick. Thank you for giving us all this information in this chapter. It really explains alot. Someone said in their review that they really thought Carlisle loved Renee, I don't think that. I think he was in love with his idea of Renee. He is living in his own little world. Does he really think that Edward would share Bella? That is just crazy and sick. Edward would kill for Bella. Demetri better by carful around Edward if he does not want to get hurt...the same goes for Carlisle. I think Edward would turn against Carlisle and hurt him to protect Bella. Emmett and Jasper would be right there to help him. Can't wait to see were you are going with this, what plans you have for Demetri. I am scared but I trust you with my whole heart with this story. EXCELLENT JOB as always.

    I have to are Edward and Bella acting in front of Carlisle on a day to day bases? In your last chapter Edward openly called Esme "Mother" and was light hearted with Bella in front of Carlisle. What is happening on an everyday bases??????

    Thank you so much for updating. Happy Thanksgiving to you if we don't hear from you again before then. We are THANKFUL for you and your story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. Good to here about the updates. Got to read two chapters tonight. But I’m kind of sorry you used Peter as your Carlisle. He does not deserve that stigma. :( I’ll try to ignore it myself.

    Again, I’ll repeat it. This guy is really sick. I don’t even want to imagine what he has in mind for her! Yuck!

    Okay... that is a little violent. The whole thing with Carlisle’s parents. I guess crazy runs in the family. I’m just glad it seems to have skipped a generation. I know it is a little hypocritical of me. But although I don’t think it is any less wrong, I can kind of see how uneducated men might be that stupid and little minded about women. But for well educated men to be this way, it is inexcusable, bad childhood influences and all.

    Sick, sick, sick!!

    That is because he never had anyone love him. And even though he said something about loving Renee last chapter, I just don’t buy it. He is not capable of love. He might have wanted her, and might think he loved her. But real love is not like that.

    F**K! I feel really sick just remembering that. I guess it really has been a long time since those horrible times. And I’m glad. I really wish with all my heart that you don’t let him get any closer to Bella in the future, at least not physically. I mean, I get that the story needs to be real and he still has a lot of power. So I understand Bella and Edward might have some hard times ahead, but I just don’t want him to have the satisfaction of being anywhere near her body!

    F**king idiots!!! The only thing that makes me stop and not simply wish Renee never gave either the time of day is the fact that Bella is here now, and she is the one to set this whole family finally free. I’m sure of it!

    See? He actually understands love, but somehow it does not apply to him. Because he apparently loved and did not feel that for the ones he thinks he loves. Not Renee, not Esme, not his children. He really has all the characteristics of a sociopath.

    He is too weird! *shudders*
    You really know how to write them! LOL He makes my skin crawl!!!


  34. ...Continued

    Awww Now things come out in the clear. I hate that money can be so corruptive! And I just hope that attorney gets penile cancer! (Sorry, I hate that it is just a bunch of sick men that are all responsible for all this pain.)

    I wish he was not so crazy. I almost feel like he should be committed to a mental hospital. But that is too easy. I want him in prison, getting rapped every single day for the rest of his life. Even death is too good for him. Yeah, I know, I’m a vindictive bitch. But this one of those things that really pushes my buttons, and he deserves it!

    I guess it is not much, but at least it was a real accident and not murder, although I know that is not beyond him.

    I’m almost laughing at how absolutely insane the f**ker is! He really has no idea what Edward will do to him if he even suggests this! He is in for a big surprise!

    No, no, no!! I don’t want to hear of more sick plans! Don’t let him hurt her more!!

    Now I know for a fact he is completely delusional. Edward would kill or/and die before letting Demetri or anyone else have Bella. I’m sure of it now. Carlisle really does not know his own son.

    All these men need to be CASTRATED PRONTO!!! Crazy f**kers!

    Please, please! Don’t let this be true! Carlisle is to have no more good days!!
    Please, no!

    Ok, I think I’ve calmed down a bit now. See how worked up you make me? This story takes into so many highs (happy and murderous) and such lows... you really are good. :D

  35. oh please please please...let this be a HEA!!! Carlise is one crazy sick twisted SOB!!

    but the story is oh so good!

  36. Okay so first off - Carlisle is a fucking pig. Sorry there is just no other way to say that without the expletive. He wanted and lusted after Bella since she was a baby?! I was actually sick - physically sick - as I read this chapter.

    I want to make it clear that this is a positive review. This is in no way a flame and is written with the utmost respect to Mic.

    Carlisle as a character repulses me, but that only means that you have busted your ass writing him so well.

    There is no misunderstanding here, Carlisle i not simply unloved and suffering from too little affection. He is vile.

    I totally understand that the issue with his other was bad and that he is obviously product of his own upbringing - but BELLA WAS A BABY! You sick freak! (Carlisle obvs - not you Mic).

    I am really terrified for what this impending visit means for *both* Edward and Bella. He made promises, Bella won't go back to being Barbie - will they be able to work something out to ensure that she stays with Edward without being beaten and abused again? God, I hope so. There's only so much that poor girl can take.

    Based on her response to Emmett in the last chapter, when she was defiant about how she would act and what she would wear, I can only imagine that between them - Carlisle, Marcus and Demetri will be a force to be reckoned with.

    There is a hopeful side of me though that thinks, the side are definitely evening up - 3 on 3 would make a fairer fight, but would Edward, Emmett and Jasper be enough to take the rest of the family on?

    You have woven Carlisle's POV expertly - rounding off answers to questions about the legal failings with Renee's will and Phil's family. Between lawyers, doctors and spying neighbors, it seems Bella never really stood a chance.

    I just hope that Edward remembers who he is now and who he loves and can be strong enough for them both.

    Plus points for this chapter - Esme is happy in her garden while she watches Edward be playful and loving with Bella.

    And then of course we have the teasing and the love between Edward and Bella inside the house too.

    Thanks for the update. I can't say that I wasn't grossed / creeped out by it, but as Carlisle's POV, I know it wasn't supposed to be pleasant.

    Great job, Mic. I know it must have been difficult to write.

    ~ Lins

  37. Oh no, no lie, this chapter has just scared the shit out of me. I can see it all unfolding, and not in a good way, before me... I don't like! This is such a good story, I love it so much, Carlisle, I don't like. He is one sick fucker, so messed up it was creepy to read, but now we have all the info I cannot wait for the upcoming chapters!

  38. I'm so scared for Bella. Carlisle is seriously creeping me out. He wants to share Bella and even have kids with her. Now Demetri is coming and Edward is gonna start tripping and Oh my, I don't even want to try to guess what happens next. I'm sending positive vibes your way Mic. I trust you. Please dont let them hurt Bella.

  39. OMG! That was one twisted and revealing ride you had us on for this sick and deluded man's POV. Send for Demitri because Edward has once again become the pussy whipped boy Esme morphed him into according to this vindictive bastard. I wanna smack him across th head with a blunt object! Can one person no, thing be this wicked?! Yes it can, if it's Carlisle apparently. I love where Edward is right now with Bella and their growing closeness and him and his mother reconnecting again but I fear according to this chapter that is coming to a sreeching halt because of the sick, twisted piece of shit that fathered him. Is there no escaping that demon with some honor intact?! Is that even possible? Is there any HEA for Edward and Bella, Alice and Jasper, Rosalie and Emmett or Esme?! It looks dim to me right now and as much as I hope that to change, right now I'm at a lost how.
    My fear mostly right this minute is if Demitri comes along and Carlisle's plan begin to execute perfectly,won't that bring his type of Edward out? because how will he win without unleashing that bastard's side of himself with his ultimate challenger around and it will devastate Bella to have to return to being Bella Barbie once more.
    Loved Renee, "it" doesn't know the meaning of the word. I think he means possess her as his property. He and his family are a bunch of demented fuckers for sure.
    To defeat this bastard the boys will need a foolproof plan, they need to know about everything, they will need strong ammunition to rid themselves of this insect.
    Share her?! You must be out of your damn mind.
    Can't wait to see where you take us next I know it'll probably be hard but I really wanna hope the boys and their girls make it out on top....

  40. OMGGGGG!! He is so sick!!

    And now Demitri will be on the picture.. I just hope that Edward protects Bella from them!

  41. naww carlise isnt very nice is he?
    why cant be just be happy for edward and be content with esme
    stupid thing
    loved the chapter though
    wonder what Demitris gona be like??

  42. Oh damn....Carlisle needs therapy...real quick...I hope Edward sees his plans before hand and proects Bella...cuz I have a feeling Demitri is dirt!

  43. OMG, Carlisle is EVIL! His brain is so twisted...I can't see Edward wanting to Share Bella with his Dad, or even let her go to Demitri. Thanks for such a quick are totally awesome!!!

  44. can't let carlisle send her away to those monsters.

    carlisle is more sick than i thought.

    esme should poison his food.

  45. oh man Carlisle is one sick fuck...I hope his plan goes to shit...Edward and Bella deserve each other now and him bringing Demitri into the mix as a punishment for Edward is so utterly messed up..I hope someone brings down Carlisle before anything bad happens..cant wait to read the next chapter

  46. Carlisle is a creep but I understand him a bit, now I know where he's coming from, but still a creep! I hope all the boys are going to stand up against him allthough I'm curous about Dimitri...

  47. OMG Carlisle is completely sick. He must die.
    His brain is shit. How can he do that to his own son. And he want a son with Bella, that guy is totally insane. He realle earn to die.

  48. thanks for updating this quickly!!!! awesome chapter!!!! Carlisle is a really sick fuck. he deserves to die, he is so twisted *shudders*

  49. carlisle is really a very bad monster. i agree with the others here he had to die. thank you for this chapture...

  50. I hate him...
    thsnk you for updating soon

  51. Ugh, Carlisle is a disgusting, sick bastard. It make me ill to my stomache reading from his point of view, especially since things are going well for ExB. I love this story and I love your writing, I just don't like the heartbreak. Maybe I just need to fill myself up on fluff before I read your next chapter.

  52. I am terrified of what's to come. Literally terrified. Please don't let him get his hands on Bella. Edward and Bella need to leave NOW. If Edward goies back to the way he was, I don't think I could take it and I'm pretty sure it would break Bella past the point of ever bringing her back.

  53. It's amazing how many obstacle Bella & Edward have on their way ... Carlisle is deeply scaring, I truly understand Bella's nightmares about him. But I'm sure love will triumph & Demetri will not be able to steal Bella from Edward, even with Carlisle's help.

  54. Carlisle is just SICK SICK SICK!!! So much more sick and twisted than I had thought. Lusting after Bella when she was still in Renee's womb????? What kind of sick fuck does that????

    But despite the subject matter, it is SO well written and Carlisle's character is amazingly done. I so hope that E figures out what is going on with Demetri and Marcus before B gets hurt. And I love how playful E is with B. He's become a man!

  55. This chapter answered a lot of questions.

    Carlisle is one sick Bastard

  56. damn i'm sensing some bad shit is about to go down! Carlisle is certainly one sick MF!

  57. He is a sick, twisted man. he's crazy. he's disgusting. he wants to share bella and he wants a child with her?

    I love how edward and bella are acting with one another. they are so cute together now. so glad he isn't like carlisle anymore. he's actually a loving human being though it may have taken him awhile to get to that point. i loved their interaction and their playfulness in this chapter. i liked it in carlisle's pov because its kind of like a hah! in your face kind of thing. he raised his son to be a monster but here he is being a playful, loving, compassionate boyfriend who doesn't even consider punishing her for her actions. though i know it's going to have its repercussions soon.

  58. Well that certainly answered a few questions. Ew he is just sick though - he wants to share Bella with Edward!!!
    What is going to happen with Demitri????

  59. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh nooooooooooooo please nooooo!!!!! no mas por fa Dios mio this is too much really if Demetri gets his hands in Bella I quit.
    very disturbing chapter!!
    I'm sorry I know id the way the story goes but I'm getting soft.

  60. I absolutely love your writing. As wrong as it is, it seems so realistic. It almost makes me feel bad for this being one of my favorite stories. I look forward to your updates!

  61. Carlisle is a perfect villain. He is sick, twisted and I hate him so much.

    Can’t wait to see what happens next!

  62. I hate being the only sick bastard here...but I'm glad to see everything isn't going to be sunshine and lollipops for the rest of the story.
    Yep, I'm looking forward to Demetri's visit.

  63. Carlisle is a FREAK! Lol..he kinda scares me. Cant wait till the next chapter! (:(:

  64. This is such a deliciously creepy story and Carlisle is what nightmares are made of. I really hope that Bella is not brutalized any more... threats and attempts I'm okay with, but the poor girl a has been through enough. I hope there is a big dramatic build up but I want Edward to come to her quick and sweet rescue... then I hope he kicks Carlisle's evil ass to the curb or jail or even dead because that is what that bastard deserves.

  65. carlisle scares the crap out of me. he is a sick freak as hot as he is. his caniving and evil mind has chills running down my spine! i'm really happy for edward and bella but i have a feeling with demitri showing up and carlisle gettin a possesile on us that the happy isnt gonna last long specially since bella made known her desire to tell edward about his fathers latest sickness.
    as freaked out as i am ..... i'm really enjoying the story and cant wait to read more

  66. Thanks for updating again it makes me so happy ( though this chapter is creepy!) Update soon

  67. Three Words: I hate Charlisle!!! I'm really afraid of reading the next chapters! I hope Edward will be able to safe Bella from his father's evil plans!

  68. Carlisle is so horrible.. how can he be like that?
    I understand things better now with the story of his father.. Its quite creepy.. I mean, he killed him IN FRONT of his children, that's far too twisted.
    on the other hand, i'm so happy for Edward and Bella, things are going so good! I want to kill Carlisle for wanting to end it!
    Looove this fic! can't wait for more

  69. Three Words: I HATE CARLISLE!!!
    I am in complete agreement with "Strauchi" above!

    I hope desperately that he doesn't reach his goals but I suspect sth bad...

    It's high time for Bella to explain her fears of Edwards father and the experiences with him...
    Spill it out Bella!!!

    Your story is proof that sometimes genius and insanity can be close together.

    I am really terrified of the next Chapters...

  70. Whoa. Carlisle is a f*cking creeper! Eww!

    In a way I'm glad he didn't have Renee killed. I dunno, that would have made me so freakin angry! (well, angrier than I already am)

    I hope this little plan of his backfires and Edward doesn't try to prove that B's "trained". Ugh. I guess this test will show whether or not Edward has fully become Bella's Edward or if he's still Carlisle's Edward...

    Thanks for the fast update!!! I can't wait for the next chapter!

  71. i seriously do enjoy this story, as crazy as that seems cuz let's admit, its not the easiest storyline to stomach...but shit...everyone is right. Carlisle is a sick fucking bastard and i can't WAIT till he gets his!! Seriously they flipped a coin for Renee and he KEPT TABS ON THEM?! What a freak...he knew her records and stayed over night w/ her while in the hospital...he is too many ways fucked up and this thing w/ Demetri has gotten trouble written alll over it!!!

    But Edward and Bella, ahhh, they just make me smile...i'll probably cry when u write her "i love you" to him :D And i'll also cry HARDCORE if u let Carlisle go anywhere NEAR Bella's front or back door, ya hear?! hahah Thanks for the update :)

  72. Now I am seriously scared for Bella.
    This would be the time to see the brothers band together. As scary as it is ... it would be 3 against 3. Or if Esme has some kind of poison in her garden now would be the time to use it. Demetri coming and Carlisle offering her to him vs Edward having to earn her... bone-chilling. How is Edward going to deal with this?

    Sickening how his mind works to desire after Bella. And how he still would have had she been his daughter.

  73. Thankyou for updating... I'm in hospital at the moment so it was a nice little treat for me =)

  74. Wow. I just finished the story up to the latest update. Started on Chapter 1 Monday and could not hardly stop reading it. I was hoping that it was finished until I realized how the story was turning with the sick plot of Carlisle's. What mindfunkery!!
    I have read so much FF and found this story via The Writer's Cofffee Shop after reading "The Training School". It was hard to stomach at first, but I could not stop reading it.
    I think this is the best written fiction on Twilight that I have read. I just wish that you would publish the book with character name changes. It reminds me of something that Anne Rice might have written. Similar to her series on Sleeping Beauty.

    Obviously can't wait for your update and will be checking back everyday until then.

  75. charlise is sicking me make men have a bad name on the planet

  76. Wow Carlisle is messed up! I hope that Bella's new persona with Edward gives her the strength she needs to help put Carlisle in his place...I think it would be spectacular if she stood up to him herself! I can't wait for the showdown between Edward and Demitri. And as much as I know it's an errant hope, I think it would be a total plot twist if somehow Bella was able to change Carlisle the way she did Edward. If anyone can do it it'd be her...and I hate seeing him as the villain. I love this story because it pulls it off so well though!

  77. Carlisle is a sick and twisted, perverted freak! :0

    I'm glad Edward is treating Bella well and making her feel safe and cared for, but I really hope Bella tells Edward about Carlisle soon...unless she already has and that is why Edward refuses to leave her alone...

    I hope the boys can change Demetri's view and that Edward continues to fight for Bella without losing himself to Carlisle. :(

    Knowing Carlisle's background has definitely made things clearer but there is nothing that could ever make what he did and continues to do right.

    I knew Carlisle had something to do with Renee and Phil's wills, there was no way that they would leave Bella in Charlie's very incapable hands.

    And what disgusting freak wants to "share" his daughter-in-law with his son? This chapter was like a mini-horror story, but like a car crash you just can't look away from it and must continue reading to see what will happen next.

  78. OMG! This story is going to give me an anxiety attack or an anurism! Possibly both... seriously. Just thinking of Carlisle getting his hands on Bella makes me want to run and hide and theres no way I will survive Demetri getting Bella over Edward even though I think Carlisle's intention is just to freak out Edward. I'm going to be having a heartattack reading Edwards reaction when he finds out. That is gonna break my heart. I love u rmcrms5 ur a genius writer!

  79. What Carlisle doesn't realize is that offering Bella to Demetri will be the one thing that really makes his boys turn against him. Nothing will rally them more. I just hope they will be able to save her from Carlisle before he can get too far.

  80. God, Carlisle is REALLY REALLY SICK PERSON...

  81. UGH carlisle totally scares the shit out of me :/

  82. I seriously think Carlisle is even more of a sick fuck now. I mean he was always demented and a sick fuck but now its likee times 10 haha.. just some of the things he is think are seriously the most fucked up things he could be thinking in regards to his family. First of all he's got a gorgeous wife but he still is pinning after someone he cant have. its like nothing is ever good enough for him. and then he plans to fucking his sons future wife and think he wants to share?!?! God, i am so happy that Edward is changing and becomingnothing like his father anymore otherwise i think i might just scream or barf if they decided to share her. And the Demitri thing? Carlisle is seriously on fucked up person but i guess its what works for this story and adds to it and makes Edward that much better because is realizing his horrible father and how he treats others and how Edward used to treat others as being wrong and is starting to change that. I loved the playful banter between edward and bella that is startign to come out more and more. Cant wait for the next chapter!

  83. Damn. Carlisle's mentality is fucked up. He's so far gone that he wouldn't know right from wrong if it stared him in the face. Poor Bella. She is going to suffer for being the daughter of the woman Carlisle truly loves all because he didn't have the balls to approach her. That's his fault. When will the insanity end?
    You know, Carlisle has to die for this madness to end.
    Great chapter.
    I love seeing Carlisle's twisted mind.
    There is no way Edward will allow Bella to be shared with no man, not even his father!!

  84. Carlisle is beyond scary. I think it's time for an "accident"... don't you?
    Good chapter, despite the sick, twisted story of a sadistic fuck.

  85. Carlisle is a very sick and depraved individual. I can only hope that Edward and Bella are able to beat him at his own game.

  86. That's just sick. I'm a bit disappointed, though. I had some hope for Carlisle, that maybe he could change with some big kind of epiphany. Well, I give up. The sick fucker won. Great chapter though

  87. Carlisle really scares me . . .
    really great chapter , thanks for updating :D

  88. ohhhhhh...god...
    will carlisle definately sell bella to demetri...
    he is sick...
    wanna kill him.. bella..
    when is next update.....

  89. It's a plague, how many girls are out there being sold as the perfect wife? And everything becausse of Carlisle and his freaking father.

    Edward can't let Demitri take Bella. Someone has to find out Carlisle's plans and soon.


  90. Wow!!! I am kinda terrified of Carlisle. He is seriously crazy. I loved the update and I can't wait for the next one:)

  91. Oh that was heinous!!!

    I hope Edward womps Demitri's ass!!

    Then turns around and decks Carlisle on the nose!

    Ugh!! That man infuriate me with his devious plots and ploys!!

    What a sore loser!!!

    Loved the chapter though. :o)

  92. I have to believe that too much bad has already happened to most of the characters in this story, and that it is time for the bad characters to receive a dose of their own medicine. As in the Carlisle character will finally get what is coming to him, and that the female characters will not suffer anymore than they already have.

  93. Wow Carlisle is one scarry fucked up man. Great chapter. It gave me the chills.

  94. whenever I think I am on top of the situation with TPF - i get knocked up with sth completely new. I LOATH Carlisle and his sick mind.
    I am afraid for Edward. Afraid he is going to flip when Demetri comes after Bella. She needs to tell Edward about Carlisle. And soon.

  95. omg I HATE Carlisle!! And I am so glad that Edward has changed and for the better but, one thing that I am scared of is that he will change again once Demetri comes. Hopefully Demetri will understand that women should be treated as equals. I also hope that Bella will tell Edward about what Carlisle wants to do to her!!! I really apreciate the update and I really hope you update soon!!!

  96. I hope you're happy.

    I spent BOTH of my days off reading this story!

    OMG it's like a train wreck, you wanna look away but you can't! Bravo!

    This is some twisted shit but it is written amazingly (is that a word?).

    This is the first story I've ever read that I totally hate Charlie.

    I usually love Carlisle but he is such a piece of shit in this story, I just want him to die.....VERY SLOWLY! I can't even say that I'm shocked at the depths he went to get Bella and his plans for her. I got the feeling he was fucking cracked out in the first few chapters.

    I've always hated Edward and reading this story has brought up those familiar feelings of wanting to strangle him. But I'm glad he seems to be pulling his head out of his ass and getting with the program. He better grow some damn balls and handle this new shit with Carlisle/Demetri. HE BETTER NOT LET ANYTHING ELSE HAPPEN TO BELLA!

    I say all three Cullen boys take out Carlisle, using his own damn methods. Esme can supervise. ;)

    Update soon!

  97. I've been following this story for a while, so sorry for not taking the time to comment before, but I just have to tell you how much I love it! I found it on FF just before it was taken down, and I was gutted when it disappeared. So thanks for continuing.

    Anyway, I really loved this chapter, and I'm glad there's more trouble ahead because I don't want this story to end any time soon. Yes, I want B&E to have their happy ending - just not yet! I'm enjoying the ride too much, and I love all the drama of this story. Can't wait to see what happens when Demetri turns up.

    Fantastic stuff! Well done. Please update soon.


    GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FUCK THAT SICK CUNT OF A BASTARD!

    *sigh* *breaths* I'm sorry. It just makes me angry. Carlisle makes me angry. I remember this story on fan fiction and I literally cried out in agony "NUUUUU!" when I couldn't find it. It was a sad day. I thought that you had given up on it or life became hectic or something.

    I'm so glad that I found it here. Great job with the story so far. This is one of my favorites. I love it and I hate it at the same time. I can't wait to see the next chapter!


  99. First I feel like a failure for not getting this update sooner! Secondly Carlisle is one sick bastard! He sends chills up my spine. The kind that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Creepy. The whole thing with Marcus and Demitri has me on edge. Thirdly Edward and Bella are so adorable together! I can't wait for your next chapter. Lastly you picture was perfect for this chapter. I can't believe one was taken like that. Amazing chapter and okay amazing story. The whole this has me just wrapped up in the whole thing.

  100. Carlisle is....gah! There are no appropriate words. Death would be too easy....torture in his basement, maybe.

    So did he really ever love Renee or was it just because Charlie had something he wanted? Bella is going to be a pawn between Edward and Demetri? I shudder... I hope that if that happens that all the boys will protest. I want them to gang up against Carlisle and end this dictatorship! But with Demetri and Marcus there.... I just hope Edward can protect Bella. Sigh! Thank you for writing!

  101. Reading this chapter gave me chills that the story hasn't given me in a long long time... and I seriously had a Carlisle-induced nightmare.

  102. I'm really really hoping that Edward will fight and protect Bella. And that Emmet and Jasper can grow a pair too and do SOMETHING. Protect their women God damn it!

  103. I have somehow gotten away from this story...I've spent the last few hours catching up on what ive missed...I love the sweetness thats rolling off of E&B...Carlisle is a sick and twisted man...Thanks for writing and once my chills are gone, im gonna wait for more...and hope Edward and Jasper and Emmett can finally end this insane world they grew up in...


  104. This was a different chapter, and one that gives us lots of information. What we knew about Carlisle had been provided by others mostly. He had rarely heard directly from him. Some of the things he shared, could have been guessed or assumed, but the entire thing is I think too shocking to have guessed it all. He really has a sick mind, he is a sick man, who sadly is also very intelligent and has had the means to do things as he has wanted for almost his entire life. Few things he hasn't got, and the one he wanted the most, Rennee, he thought he would get through his daughter. His plans here placed on hold for a while, and as upset as he had been at the time, it apparently had been working better for him. He has found a way to get around the complications in the way, with ease, and he seems to believe there is no way that, eventually won't get him what he wants. How I hope he is wrong.
    He thought Edward would be his living image and would do as asked in everything. He was certain he had molded him to what he expected. In a way he did, but fortunately Esme's teachings were strong and stayed in him, even when he tried to erase them. That is one of Carlisle's mistakes, underestimating a mother's love and influence, and thinking he has absolute control over Esme. He has been loosing control for a long while, he isn't truly aware of what happens in his sons houses, he overestimates himself as a teacher, that's another mistake.
    As for Bella and Rennee, he made an idea of them, especially Rennee and he has hold to it for too long and has been twisting it to what he has dreamed about, not what is the truth, another big mistake.
    But he still has a few cards under his sleeve and he is about to play a very dangerous hand for everyone involved. I hope he is the one with the loosing hand. He has to be.

  105. god he's freaky! and in a horribly icky way!

  106. loved this chapter alot. It was kinda suprising to see into carlislie thoughts hes really scary but, for some reason i love it i hope to see more of it in the future. please don'tbreak bella and edward up there making such good progress

  107. God Carslisle is a fucking asshole i really hope Edward kills him setting his entire family free.

    it is an excellant story though i cant wait for more

  108. Wow. Seeing from Carlisle's POV seriously scares the shit out of me. That man had the nerve to call Charlie warped and a monster?

    Pot, meet kettle!

    Edward & Bella are so wonderful together, and I love that Edward is showing so much love to Esme... I hate that Carlisle is planning on giving Bella to Demetri for a time... please, oh please, don't let that happen!!

  109. Okay, Carlisle just reached a whole new level of creepy that I didn't know existed. First of all, he's totally obsessed with her because she's Renee's daughter and planned this all along so he could have her. Now he realizes that Edward isn't controlling her like he wants and so he's going to make him go back to the way things were or give her to Demetri! All this so he can have her. What a sick demented crazy psychotic jerk! Please tell me that she's not going to get hurt anymore.

  110. thats just sooo sick!! Im kind of scared of Carlisle he is so mean I cant believe it! And poor Bella such a hard time she's gonna have!! But seriously Carlisle, Charlie and James are/were just sick!!!

  111. i really hate Carlisle! like, really, really.

  112. Oh god! I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope that Bella tells Edward about Carlisle....
