1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
I think that they're kind of protective of Bella, in a good way. Jake wants very much so to be Bella's friend - or more than that. Billy wants Bella to be safe, and he really disapproves of her hanging out with Edward; he's just looking out for 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?
I see them being alike in the fact that they are kind of both loners. Like, Charlie lived alone for how long? I don't think that most people would do that, but he made it. And they both love Renee. He's more laid back than Renee is, and I think Bella is more like that.

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 he wasn't as interested in that as the information that he had asked on the first day. Besides, it seems more natural - by the second day, he knows that Bella trusts him at least a little, so she'd be more inclined to answer his questions truthfully. And, perhaps he didn't want to know just then if she did love someone in Phoenix. Maybe he wanted to know, but was afraid to ask the first day?

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
It's Bella. She's accident prone. He wants her to be alive when he gets back. And, because it's just so romantic!
<i>I'd wait till we were close enough to the ground, get a good grip on you, kick out the wall, and jump. Then I'd run you back to the scene of the accident, and we'd stumble around like the two luckiest survivors in history.<i>

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

I think Billy assumes that Bella does't know what Edward is, so he's naturally worried. But when he figures out that she knows, he seemed, really, even more worried. Jacob is obviously feeling disappointed to see Bella spending time with another boy.


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?

Both quiet and thoughtful, shy, and clumsy. And, of course, okay with spending time 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?

Because they are the more personal ones. It was like he was learning things about her the way you world in a more natural relationship--only in fast forward.


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

Because he is constantly preoccupied with her safety.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

Billy cares for her in a fatherly manner. he tries to warn her about "Edwards type." Jacob loves her. but back off dude, she's Edward's.

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?

dont share feelings readily. look alike. like to be alone. etc.

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 needed Bella's trust before he asked personal questions. those two questions are personal. he just needed to give her some time to get used to him.

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

he loves her so much and doesnt want anything to happen to her. he wouldnt be able to keep her safe while he was away.
"Tell me what you want, and you can have it."
"You," I mumbled almost incoherently.
"I'm yours."

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
Jacob is probably a bit interested in Bella...no, he IS a bit interested in Bella and he likes the fact that he grew up with her and how, er, "nice", she has been to him.

Billy doesn't dislike her but he's concerned about her hanging out with the Cullens, or a Cullen, and fears that she doesn't understand what she's getting into. He dislikes her lack of judgment, in his eyes.



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 seems to enjoy his time by himself, watching TV or out fishing, he tends to just keep to him self. He isn't anti-social, just quiet and a bit reserved. Bella tends to keep to herself, interact with people but not more than she can handle, and she is reserved herself. Also, they both know how to care for someone on every level possible, Charlie with Renee and Bella with both Renee and Edward.


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?
They may be the answers he was most afraid of hearing, or answers he was hoping wouldn't draw him to Bella anymore, he may have been holding out for her to say she wasn't interested. (Silly Edward!)
With her family, he probably waited because he already knew a lot about her Dad, and figured she was missing her Mom, so he didn't want to upset her.



4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
He is convinced that if he isn't there, she will somehow manage to hurt herself, in some shape or form. There's been enough evidence so far that shows she tends to get hurt easily, so he's just..extending more warning. :p

And because he knows a simple two worded note will send any girl, and Bella, into a fit of swooning. :D

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
Billy wants bella to be safe. He knows the cullens are dangerous and thinks Bella shouldn't be with them. Jacob just likes her and he knows Bella likes Edward. And Edward is the better rival.

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 both very independent. They both seem to keep to thierself and aren't as social as you wuold think. Charlie has always had his fishing.

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 was a little worried, saving those questions for last. He's worried that she did meet someone in Phoneix she liked.


4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
He knows Bella could get hurt in the most simple situations. I mean its Bella. He wanted her to know he cared for her in everyway possible, to Bella it was just like a love note.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

You can already tell that Jacob is interested in Bella especially since she flirted with him at the beach. With Billy, I'm not really sure yet just that he seems to not like the fact that Bella was 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?

It seems that they are pretty content with doing their own thing. He doesn't hover over Bella and she doesn't really worry about him. He also stays, for the most part, out of her business.

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 don't think he particulary saved them for the second day as much as he just has a lot of things he wants to know about her.

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

I think some of it had to do with the fact that he wanted Bella to know that he was thinking of her and also for her not to do anything foolish which might upset their plans for the next day.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

Billy believes in the legends of his people and thinks a Cullen is dangerous to a human. Also, Bella is the daughter of one of his best friends. He wants her to be safe and Charlie too. Jacob might have a crush on Bella because he thinks she likes him (due to the flirting).

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 and Bella seem to me to be very private people. They don't share much when it comes to how they really feel and are not talkitive people.

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 don't really think Edward saved these questions for the second day for any real reason except that it was the natural progress when you are getting to know someone.

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

Edward now feels responsible for Bella and her safety. Bella gets into a lot of trouble. He wrote what he feels.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

i think they are just concerned for her and want her to not hang out with dangerous people

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 can each be self sufficient people and dont have to have other people there to entertain 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?

well, those questions are a little less superficial than 'fav colors' and also i think he didnt want to overwhelm her with tough questions right off.

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

i think he didnt want to come off sounding overprotective, but still concerned for her safety and he also waned to let her know he was thinking of her

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?

She dosen't mind being alone, and their personalities.

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 she could have a day to think about how she feels about him.

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

Because he dosen't want Bella dying, cause he dosen't plane to out live her by long. [and no one want Bella or Edward dead okay well maybe James and Victoria.]
