1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

Billy is...frustrated, I believe. He wants Bella to be safe, but he can't really tell her or Charlie why.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?

They both have this easy-going thing. They like and respect solitude, and other's wishes for solitude.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?

So he doesn't sound too desperate and obsessive. He still failed, though.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe"?

Because Bella rarely ever is.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

i think that billy is just worried about bella, since he knows what the cullens are. and plus since he is good friends with charlie, it probably makes him worry even more.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?

since charlie has lived alone ever since bella and renee left i think it just doesnt bother him to leave bella alone. also because it seems that they have no problem just being by themselves.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?

maybe because he thought those we just a little to personal to be asking the first day.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".

because he knows how bella is. he's seen how clumsy she is many a time.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

BILLY IS FRUSTRATED THAT BELLA WONT LISTEN. JACOB PROBABLY HAS THE HOTS FOR BELLA. :)

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?

SINCE THEY MIGHT STILL BE NEW TO THE LONG TERM THING, TOO MUCH TIME TOGETHER MIGHT STILL BE AWKWARD. ALSO THEY MIGHT JUST BE USED TO IT, OR THEY KNOW EACH OTHER TO KNOW HOW THE OTHER FUNCTIONS.


3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?

HE WANTED BELLA TO TRUST HIM BEFORE HE GOT REALLY PERSONAL, YOU KNOW, POSSIBLY TOUCHY AREAS. HE WANTED BELLA TO BE COMFORTABLE.


4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".

HE WANTS HER AROUND, TO STAY WITH HIM. ALOS POSSIBLY WHAT SHE MIGHT HEAR AND BELIVE *COUGH COUGH*.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
I think billy is outraged that she be with cullen, but he also seems to be worried. He seems like a father figure. I think Jacob is a little jealous, but still intreaged by bella.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
Their quiet, and they enjoy the silence between eachother. They also share the clumsy feature.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
I think he didn't want to spring those kind of questions on her at first

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
He constantly worries about her, and I know he feels like shes in more danger being away and in a way near him.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

I think Billy is fustrated with Edward hanging around with Bella, and I think Jacob is jelous but he still likes Bella.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind being alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?

They both don't mind being alone because they like the silence.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?

Maybe because he wanted her to be more comfortable with his questions, so he started with simple ones first, then slowly went to more personal ones.


4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".

Because she a magnet for trouble, and he worries she might get hit by a truck.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

I think Billy thinks Bella may be in danger being near vampires but he cannot tell Charlie, so that might make him angry. And i think Jacob may have a little crush on Bella


2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?

They're alike in the way they behave to each other and to other people, i mean, they're not very talkative, it's hard for them to show their feelings....

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?

I think he wanted Bella to trust him and feel comfortable before he started asking more serious and persona questions, that way it would be easier for her

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".


I think he was worried because something could happen to her and he wouldn't be there to save her and take care of her

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

I think Billy is worried about Bella but I also think he has his own agenda. He bas obviously gone to extreme measures to protect his people from his suspicions regarding the Cullens and he might see Bella as a danger. Bella is welcomed by Jacob and in places forbidden to the Cullens. I could see Billy being afraid she could put them and the entire community in danger as acting as a kind of double agent perhaps without realizing she's doing so. You know?

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind being alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?

Charlie and Bella seem very alike in the way that they both seem to share the same social disconnect. I could see Bella lingering on lost romance the same way Charlie has. They both relish solitude and obviously like to get lost within themselves. Bella seems bothered by all things social outside of Edward despite her need to be accepted. Charlie appears similar this way judging by his very sheltered life.


3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?

I really didn't see much significance in this. He probably just wanted to get the basics out of the way before delving into the heavier social aspects of life. It seems like a natural order one would take while getting to know someone. It's kind of rude to jump right into potentially darker memories than those conjured by "what's your favorite color?"

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".

Edward may have written those words partially for Bella's benefit and perhaps a little for his own. He might have wanted to remind himself how important and significant her safety is to him. Or, this could totally be taken for a grain of salt meaning it was simply meant to keep her from tripping to death.

What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

Billy is worried about Bella because of what he knows about the Cullens and because Charlie is his friend. I don't think he wants anything to happen to her. Also, Vampires being the natural enemy of the werewolf, and we know what Billy believes about that, I think he sees her as fraternizing with the enemy. I think that Jacob really likes Bella and hopes to be "more than friends".

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind being alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?

Charlie and Bella do not appear to be very social people and they enjoy having time to themselves. They don't have any trouble finding ways to entertain themsleves when they are alone. I think they enjoy the solitude (most of the time).


3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?

I think he just wanted to ease into the questions. Family and boyfriends is a little more personal so he didn't want to throw that all at her on the first day.


4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".

I think he wanted Bella to make a conscious effort to try and not get hurt. He left the note to remind her to watch what she is doing and to be careful.
"Do you want me to bolt the doors so you can massacre the unsuspecting townsfolk?" I whispered conspiratorially.
"And where do you fit into that scheme?"He glared.
"Oh, I'm with the vampires, of course."

What are Billy and Jocob's feelings toward Bella?

Well I truely think that Billy thinks Bella is insane for even being in the same room as Edward or any of the other Cullens. Even though he doesn't know how deep Edward's blood lust runs. As for Jacob isn't it ovious that Jacob is falling for Bella. What I'm wonder is how far will he take this crush? Will there be any fighting shinanigans (I love that word,) or fight between Edward and Jacob in New Moon. (I thought I would annoy you with that question.

Charlie says he's aware leaves Bella alone to often,and Bella responds she doesn't mind being alone. She further adds she's alot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?

Well I could only think of one thing and then one that is completely beyond me, and confuses me.(I tend to confuse myself alot :oops: .)The first one in my oppinion is slightly ovious. They both like to be alone. Mostly Charlie. The other one, (the one that confused me) is that Bella states in Invatations that she didn't get her balancing problems from Ren'ee. Remember? [/i] Well in what time in Twilight did Charlie trip, stumble, or even seem clumsy? So Alphie sorry but I answered your question with another one.

Edward's questions continueand today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he those questions for the second day of questioning?

Well I have two answers (as always.) One is that he wanted to know more about Bella then anyone elese family and all. The second one is that he knew that questions might annoy Bella so he left them for last.

Why did Edward write Be Safe?

Because of her accident prone I know that for sure people sometimes worry about you and since he cares so much for her he wanted her to know I guess.
What an INCREDIBLELY smart lamb!
Got Twilight?
I'm betting on Alice.
