HiYou know the deal, leave a comment or email us if you know the fic we're searching for.
Can you help me find that fic, please?
It's a E&B AH story.
Esme has left Edward and Carlisle with barely any any explanation. They don't know that she has a fatal illness. They meet Bella years later, not knowing that she has looked after Esme until her death. As Bella made a promise to Esme not to tell of her illness, Edward feels betrayed when Bella finally tells them the truth.
They meet again much later and at first he rejects her again, then realises that by telling the truth, Bella had chosen him over her promise to his mother.
The story is complete. There is a French-speaking child (Edward's daughter?); there are journals Esme wrote during her illness; Bella is a nurse; Esme is possibly a doctor; I seem to remember that the summary mentioned Edward having a strong dislike of the medical field. I have not been able to find that summary again, even though I'm sure I'd recognize it straight away if I came upon it!
Thanks in advance!
