Their love.

This is the chapter where we really see a romance blooming between Edward and Bella. What was the most romantic moment for you?
I liked when he laid his head on her chest to listen to her heart beat.. it was romantic b/c he wanted to be close to her.

1.i think that bella's confession is that she doesn't care that he's a monster.ithink that edwards is that even though he knows that they shouldn't be together,he does it anyway.

2.the way they listen to each other's confession,which makes them fall in love more.

3.my favorite parts are: 1.where he says that she is his whole world.
2.where he swears that he won't hurt her.
3.when he put her wrist up to his nose to show her that he can control himself.
4.where he FINALLY kisses her.

The chapter is entitled "confessions". What do you think the most meaningful confession on Bella's part, and what is the most meaningful confession on Edward's part? -- I think the most meaningful confession on Bella's part would have to be when she said "Stupid lamb," in response to the "And so the lion fell in love with the lamb." It may be a short quote but she admitted that it was really stupid of her to be spending time with someone as dangerous as Edward and yet there she was, because she really liked him. She was aware of the perils their newfound relationship might bring, but she's still there.
-- On Edward's part, I believe it was the "I have human instincts—they may be buried deep, but they're there." part. That really got me. Up until that point, I saw Edward as this perfect god-like creature that Stephenie wanted us to see. But when he said it, he became more human to me. He was capable of feeling that way, of liking and falling for someone, despite his being a vampire for a hundred years. It was meaningful for me because it meant he was ready to explore a new territory.. that he was aware of another side of him and that he was ready to accept it.


The subject of humanity and what is means to be truly human constantly comes up. How is the humanity of Bella and Edward best displayed in this chapter?
-- I think their humanity is best displayed in their touching, and the way they wanted to hold each other. Edward is a vampire so this makes it really dangerous for Bella, but you can feel his ardent desire to hold her. And Bella felt that same way too. I think as humans the physical connection is very important, it says a lot about how we feel for the person. The way they touch is other is very gently and carefully, like how they are acting on their current relationship, and yet you can feel that they wanted and had something more.



This is the chapter where we really see a romance blooming between Edward and Bella. What was the most romantic moment for you?-- When Edward kissed Bella. Enough said. :oops: :)

The chapter is entitled "confessions". What do you think the most meaningful confession on Bella's part, and what is the most meaningful confession on Edward's part?

The most meaningful confession on Bella's part is that she is afraid of him at times. She has always put up a front, saying it doesn't matter and she's not scared, but she really is. She has finally come to realize that he is a dangerous creature, but she loves him anyway. Edward's most meaningful confession is how he truly feels about Bella. He's played hot and cold throughout the story so far, but now everyone knows how he feels.

The subject of humanity and what is means to be truly human constantly comes up. How do is the humanity of Bella and Edward best displayed in this chapter?

Their humanity is displayed after the talk, while they are sitting together, touching each other. As Bella said, she's wanted to touch him for so long and hasn't been able to. Even though she can't feel his heart, he's more real and alive to her right now than he has ever been. They are trying to work through their feelings together because they are both new at this love thing. For once, Bella doesn't feel like Edward is superior to her.

The whole chapter was very romantic. When they sat motionless, exploring each other's skin, I thought it was really sweet. This is my favorite chapter, as I'm sure it's everyone else's too. :oops:

I think on Bella's part, it's her telling Edward she'd rather die than stay away from him. On Edward's, I think his is that for the first time, he's kind of sharing his whole self with her, the side she hasn't really seen before.

I think the humanity of their relationship is best displayed by the fact that they both crave to be physically close to the other.

Probably when Edward is listening to Bella's heartbeat. That lucky girl.

Edward's was definitely the he craved her blood above all others.
Bella's was that she was never in a relationship before. That says a lot about her.

-Edward's is when he loses it for a second and has to run away and Bella's is at the end when he kisses her and she freaks out.

When he was listening to her heart. It was such a simple, quiet, sweet moment.

I think Bella's most meaningful Confession is when she tells him how she feels, she makes herself vulnerable in that moment. She know how dangerous he is but she loves him regardless. She doesn't say the word out loud but they both know what she means.
I think Edward's most meaningful confession is that of his blood lust, that is particularly strong with her. It must have been hard for him to tell her how his instincts had been driving him to the temptation of killing her. His brutal honesty is what made him vulnerable, especially seeing as he knew there could be a chance she could run away from him.

For Bella I would definitely say when she got carried away with the kiss, she gave over to her senses forgetting about the fact that he craved her blood.
For Edward, I think it was kissing Bella, he had been single for such a long time that even though it was difficult for him he wanted it, for that moment, more than he wanted her blood.

This is the chapter where we really see a romance blooming between Edward and Bella. What was the most romantic moment for you?
It has to been the lion and the lamb moment, I think this was the pinnacle moment because they gave over to their emotions, they knew that against all the odds they wanted each other, even though it was unconventional. The tenderness and self discovery is touching and as the reader you realize that this unlikely couple have more love for one another than you can possible imagine, and you know that they'll make it.
**Wow I sound like a Romantic, sorry if you gagged a little lol**

Edward: when he tells Bella about how he could have killed everyone in the room just to taste her blood.
Bella: When Bella says she's afraid and she wishes that Edward was real.

When Edwardtells Bella not to be afraid after he showed off his strength and speed, I don't know why but it's the comforting way he appears to say it.

I think the most meaningful confession on Bella's part was how she had never been in a relationship before. Now, she's suddenly tangled up irrevocably in one that she is just overwhelemed by all her feelings and even tells Edward how she feels. I think the most meaningful confession on Edward's part about how much he craved for her blood, yet how much he really hated that part of him and really truly loved her still. It's all so very complicated for them.

I think the humanity of Bella and Edward is best displayedin this chapter when they just simply spill out all their secrets to each other and feelings. It's so human to see them want to get everything out and talk about their problems yet how frustrated they could be, like Edward and his lust for her blood. Also, the part where they kissed was also very human. All the feelings and adrenaline just overwhelmed them at the moment and so the kiss happened even though Edward didn't know he could be that strong to resist her. It's really human to see him realizing things about himself and watching them grow in terms of their relationship and even getting to know their own selves.

The most romantic moment for me was when they simply were just motionless, not moving, and feeling each other. No words were need to be said, and just the sense of touch was enough to set the sparks. She outlined his arms and he listened to her heartbeat. It was beautiful how much emotion could be said through no words at all. It truly was a moment when I held my breath and just had to let out a sigh.
