1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
Jacob is obviously crushing on her, Billy wats to tell her something and warn but he can't because he'll give himself away.


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?
Silence is not awkward for both of them


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?
Perhaps he felt like that was personal so he wanted to get to know her more?


4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
He truly cares for her and wants her to be safe.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
Billy is wary of Edward and his family, so he is overly protective toward Bella. Jacob, on the other hand, is completely oblivious to the awkwardness between his father and Bella, so he is very open around her, after all, he does like her.

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 are a lot alike because they are both used to depending upon themselves. They are also both very set in their ways. It would be hard for soomeone to change either one of their minds, once they have made up their minds.

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 to learn more about her as a person before he learned about her background. The boyfriend question, to me, was pure curiousity.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe"?
As we all know, Bella has a tendency to be rather accident prone. I think Edward told her to be safe because he needed her to look out for herself so he could try to hunt without worrying about her.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
They like her! Jacob obviously has a crush on her, and though Billy likes her, he's guarded and worried because she's spending time with Edward, a vampire of all things.


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?
Neither one talk alot, they are both very quiet and they seemingly enjoy their own company. They are stubborn, and they seem to stick to the decisions they make. I believe that may be something that comes from how they've always had to rely on themselves instead of any other people. As for any other similarities... I can't see any.


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 goes with the lighter questions first, more on the surface. I think it is to make her feel more safe. Then he starts digging into her life. After all, they haven't known eachother for all that long here, and if he started to ask too personal questions right away he could be afraid he'd scare her away. I think he, just like I would, se those questions as more personal then, perhaps, what your favorite book or gemstone is (though they can tell a lot about a person too!).


4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
Because he now knows all the things Bella can get herself into, and when he goes hunting he can do without getting distracted and worried. He still does, but that's another thing... It is also a way to show that he cares, but without using the "frightening" "I love you" quite yet.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

Jacob likes Bella. I don't know whether he has already fallen in love with her at that point but at least he likes her a lot. For Billy, Bella is the daughter of one of his friends and therefore he feels partly responsible for her well-being.

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?


Bella, just like Charlie, likes to be alone and independent. They both like being on their own and they don't need a lot of people around them to be happy.



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?

Asking those questions straight away on the first day may have been a bit too personal. Therefore he left those questions for the second day. Bella might have felt a bit strange if he had first asked her about her former boyfriends and stuff.


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

Well, Bella has this kind of ability to get herself into unsafe situations. Edward wants her to remember to take care of herself - because she matters to him now and he doesn't want anything to happen to her.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
Billy is astonished that Bella is with Edward and scared for her. Jacob likes Bella at lot, but realizes he isn't anything more than a friend to her at this point.

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 seem to be happy being alone.

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's wanting his relationship with Bella to become more and he's seeing himself more as a boyfriend and less of a threat to her.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
Edward had warned Bella earlier to not go into the woods because there's other 'things' in the woods, which he knows about but she doesn't yet. But I can't help thinking he's keeping her alive for another reason that we don't know yet.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
Billy is worried that his best friend's daughter is in danger dating a vampire. Jacob just wants to be with Bella, but is not hostile or frightened about her relationship with Edward

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?
Dependent and not always out in the open with their feelings. Just a little bit shy.

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?
The first day was like lighter, less serious things. Random favorites and stuff like that. The second day is when the real thinking questions come in.

4. Why do you think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
Because he means them, why else? :P

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
Jacob is fine with whatever she does, he's just head over heels for her and isn't paying much attention. Billy's getting into something that isn't his business, and never will be.

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 been alone for a lot of their lives, they are both dedicated to what they do, and both know what they want.

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 to know HER before he knew her relationships.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
Part of me thinks Alice may have seen her do something unsafe, so he tells her to be safe, and she makes sure she is safe..like Alice mentions.. her visions change.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

They are like old family friends that I think just want her to stay safe. Maybe Billy wants her safe because he wants Charlie to be happy, and Jake more because he has a crush on her.

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?

Neither of them are very confrontational, and they can both basically fend for 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?

I think that maybe she would be more comfortable with answering the questions that needed more explaining the second day, when she would be more accustomed to answering more truthfully.


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

Because Bella is so clumsy that he was worried about her when he was gone.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

Surprise, frustration and regret. I believe.

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 are like two independent persons who can live alone and don't need often friends.

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?

Because he had more time to think about them or as he watched Bella sleeping, and she mentioned her mother, he wanted to know more about her past life.

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

Because he was afraid that something happened to Bella.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

They are nic to Bella but are suprised and Billy is a sort of sceptical when he sees Edward in the car.

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?

Charlie was alone a long time and is more quite and not like Renee enthusiastic. He's more calm. Bella is calm too and can occupied with herself.


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?

Because it's not so important to him - he's more interested in bella herself.


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

He know what can happen to Bella when nobody i there to safe her. She's just clumsy and he cared much for her.
