1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
Jacob is still crushing hard. Billy on the other hand worries about her safety. I honestly believe he has the best intentions but he really needs to mind his own business.

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 easy going and don't mind the solitude. They don't need to be the center of attention; they're happy being in the background.

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?
As eveyone else said, I don't think he thought it would be appropriate jumping into the personal ones right away. However, I think he was dying to know the answers.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
Because he knows she's a clutz! He worries about her so much that if he could, he'd give himself gray hair.

They both don't need to be with people all the time. Easy going...etc.

He want to know more about her, not about her family and past? thats my best guess.

He wanted her to be safe.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
I think Billy's in a tough spot, because he's worried about Bella, but it's not like he can really say anything to Charlie about it. I think Jacob likes Bella, and wants to see her again.
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 both shy people who have a little trouble putting their emotions into words. And they're both bad dancers.
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 save the "more personal" questions for last, so that she would have a little more time to get used to him and to start trusting him.
4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
Bella=danger magnent. Edward knows that if something happens, he won't be there to look out for her, and he wants her to take care of herself.

Billy cares about her and is worried for her, Jacob has a crush.


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?
-Independance, quiet demeanor, relaxed state of being.

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's peeling layers, it's kind of like saying What do you like? Why do you like it? Why is the deeper question, so you have to peel the first to get to it. The process creates a better understanding.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
-to reminde her how much she means to him. That she's effecting him greatly by how well she takes care of her self.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?
I think Billy is protective of her, he knows whats up and he is worried, Charlie is his best friend. I also think he know Jacob pretty well. I'm certain he's aware that Jacob has a crush on Bella, and due to the situation I'm sure he would be more inclined for Bella to spend time with Jacob than 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?
I think that they are kindred spirits, they are independent, Clumsy and would have no problem being reclusive if it came down to that. I think they are also both very loyal, Charlie seems to have friends that he has known for a large majority of his life, and Bella, when committed to a friendship is the same way, or so I see it.

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 get a little closer before he got personal, he wanted to know her choices on the first day, because he wanted to know more about her, I think he wanted to know about people on the second day because the relationships she had formed have made her the person she is. He wants to know know everything about her and asking questions is the only way he will ever get the answers he needs.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
I think Edward had a pretty good idea of who Bella was and she made it pretty clear how clumsy she was. In my personal opinion, reading between the lines, i think that Alice may have seen something and had let Edward know.

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

Billy is concerned about Bella's safety. He is trying to protect her not only for her sake, but Charlie's too. Charlie would be devastated if anything happened to Bella. I think Billy feels Bella is too young and immature to realize what she's getting into, involving herself with the Cullens. Jacob doesn't understand why Billy is so bothered by Bella's love life, but he's happy to have a chance to see her. He has a huge 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?

They are both independent people, thanks to Renee. They have learned to take care of themselves and not to rely on others. I think they are also both easygoing and sensitive.

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 is trying not to scare her off. She is a mystery to him, he can't read her like other people. He waited so she might feel more comfortable to answer personal questions from him. Also, you can tell a lot about someone by their relationships with other friends and family.

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

He's a smart man! He has seen the trouble she is capable of attracting and wants her to be safe. I think his feelings towards her are getting stronger, so his protective instinct in kicking in more.

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?

1. What are Billy and Jacobs feelings towards Bella?

Since Billy believes the legends, he obviously is worried and upset that she is hanging around with Edward. Jacob on the otherhand is cruched by the fact that Bella isn't really that into him like he thought from the visit to La Push.

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 are independent and strong willed but easy going at the same time. I also think that they fall hard (in love) since Bella is thoroughly in love with Edward and that Charlie fell in love with Renee and married her almost immediately afterwards and hasn't seemed to have gotten over it.

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?

It gets more into Bella's personality and feelings than the day before where it was just her hobbies and interests, it moves on to her influences and personality.

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

He knows by now how much danger she seems to attract and he feels much more emotionally attached to her and wouldn't want anything to happen to her now especially now.
