Even though Wesley just "ended" it with Kim, I still don't trust him. And though Jenna is right by thinking that Jon might just not follow through, I still think they should be together... And what is going on with Abby and Wesley? I'm not liking this.. even if it sounds like she's just going to be Anya's tutor or wtv.. I still don't like it:( Wow mixed feelings there for me.. Anyways... Great chapter! I hope you update soon!

I love the story.

I like how you had her hearing that conversation at the end. It's interesting to know that she knows he's been talking to Kim and has now supposedly ended everything for good, including contact. I'm interested in seeing how this plays out in the future with them. At least Wesley has decided to start gaining some control with his life again, past Kim. Really great work, I can't wait for more!

About the epilogue vs. sequel thing, I think it is up to you. At this point, I no longer know who I am rooting for and I feel for Jenna. AS the author, choose whom ever you think is the best fit and do what ever you want with the ending, I will read both.

Jon's pancakes :D
I think you should do a sequel :)
Hm... in an ideal world I think Wesley should end up with the translator, Abby, so they can have a baseball team together :)

so... ... ah! Good for Wesley, he finally got rid of Kim... (I'm hoping? :P)
thanks so much for this chapter! :D

Ooh, Jenna's returned to inner-turmoil. I think it will not be long before the shit shall hit the fan. In the long run, I still hope that Jenna will choose Jon, as Westley is way more trouble than he's worth; Kim's not gone forever, either, I don't think, and then there's Abby too.
Jon, although not being entirely into persuing marriage seems a lot sweeter, funnier and would probably be a better catch in my opinion. He's also an amazing cook which balances out Jenna's disasterous, lethal kitchen abilities.
Anya is really adorable though, and her attachment to Jenna is really sweet.

I am going to read Chapter 25 in a moment, but I had an overwhelming urge to comment. I really like this story and there is only the odd grammar mistake (as with most of the very good stories out there).
At the nature of your frustrations with earlier reviewers (I read the A/N's too) I gathered that more of the reader's annoyances were directed towards Jenna and Jon. Why? I do not know. Jon suits Jenna far better with his easy going attitude than Wesley's uptight, work obsessed one. That's disregarding the fact that despite him saying he is over her, it is unfair for Wesley to even attempt to pursue Jenna, when his feelings for Kim have become increasingly more apparent (and my suspicions were proved correct alright). He's far more deceptive than Trevor was, which makes him almost as big an arse as the layabout.
With regards to your stance on foreign adoption, I greatly admire your enthusiasm for helping those influenced by poverty, a trait I share to some extent. However, the emphasis on foreign adoptions take the ideal out of adopting within our own country, an orphan who needs just the same love an attention. Perhaps this comes from the amount of pride we have in our countries (I myself am British) that we deceive ourselves into believing that poverty is non-existant. It is in fact rife in certain areas and perhaps choosing to help a child in a deprived area within even the economically developed world is just as good a cause.
I'm sorry to leave such a long review, but I do tend to talk a lot when a story is worthy of it (as this one is). Also, the little part between Robin and the trust-fund kid is rather cute, I hope there is more on that.
Keep updating, but not every five years.

Wow so much has happened in this chapter. I'm so happy with the progress Wesley has made AND that he dumped Kim on his own! I'm also glad he gave up on Jenna because she was being mean to Wesley for no reason(since she said she was keeping an even playing field but that clearly is not the case). So now we have Jenna who realizes Wesley is no longer in the game but he still dumped Kim...and that Jon isn't a sure thing. Interesting especially with the adoption being set up. But Jenna is still annoying with her inability to make a decision...I just hope she doesn't pick Wesley because he has security or Jon because he doesn't have baggage. It's not fair to either guy but then again this arrangement isn't very fair anyways.
Well I'm still officially in love with this story! I'm not sure I could handle a sequel because this story has been such a roller coaster(in the best way possible). On the other hand I do want a very tied up conclusion...so maybe a REALLY long epilogue? haha
update soon please!

Whoa! Loving it.

I don't have anything to say other than yay! I'm so happy for an update. :D
Oh and yes, The Hunger Games trilogy is a killer. I was so unhappy when certain characters died(ahemFinnickahemPrimahem) and while I liked that she ended up with who she did, I felt bad for the other side of the triangle. The whole end of the story just left me depressed.

i'm proud that wesley made that step and glad too, bc i so prefer him over jon. but getting rid kimA
| 3H chapter 26 . 2/27/2011
Oi! You did it again! Here,I was assuming Jenna was picking Jon(BOO! I was heart broken)& now Wesley(Yay!)is getting back on track. I can say I'm peeved at him for being with Kim but he is single after all, as is Jenna & Jon. But poor Wes, he's truly an addict. Just as many addicts return to their drug of choice, Wes crawls back to Kim. And now, with a kid coming into his life, he has a reason to stay away from his addiction, he has a reason to fight it. I think this is part of the reason I LOVE Wesley,I believe there's so much potential and good in him.I want to see him kick his habit, and be free of Kim. What makes me puzzled is STILL, I can't tell what his intentions are with Jenna? Is she only there to be mommy? When Kim asked "Is it her?" He said no, when I wanted him to say yeah or sorta. I wonder if he's decided to give up on her,since Jenna gave him the presumption that she was picking Jon. At least we got an apology out of him. Also, Kim sounded vengeful, I wonder whats up her sleeve? Maybe a romp with Jon? Hee, Hee. I'm evil. Though, Jon is a playboy only pursuing Jenna because she's forbidden But that's my opinion. That being said, I stand by my hopes that Jenna and Wes end up together maybe not in this story but in the sequel (Hint, hint) As for this Abby chick, I don't care that she wants millions of kids like Wesley, she needs to ONLY do her job. It's weird that he was interested in Jenna, then moved her in with him and now he's having this girl move to the same town as he. Perhaps, his only intentions are for Abby to help Anya, it has to be. I swear I don't want to see Abby and Wes together, I BEG OF YOU! PLEASE, NO! Allow Jenna the single life, and her to become accustomed to motherhood. Let her and Wes's relationship simmer amid them becoming parents. I can see it boiling over soon enough. Seriously, in their situation, I believe parenthood could bring these two together.

I'm still for team Wesley, Jenna can get him relaxed, take the stick out of his butt. But he was still talking to Kim...REALLY? how stupid can guys be?
