1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?

She had to go, and it seemed like it was the only thing that would make Charlie let go of her. Bella didn't want to do it, but it was necessary at the time.

2. There is a lot of interraction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?

I think it says a lot about their relationship. That they're close because they trust, respect and understand each other very much, and therefore listen to one another.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?

It could be because he admired the Cullens' style of living and respected them. But it could also be because he was scared of being a part of the hunt because he saw it as a losing battle because the Cullens' was obviously a strong family, not to mention that the Cullens' outnumbered them too.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?

No, I wasn't really surprised. He had lived with Edward for such a long time and he had seen how lonely Edward was. Jasper, who knows what it's like to be in love because he has Alice, must've understood how it felt for Edward. After being alone for decades and suddenly Edward finds somebody who he can share his entire life with, because he doesn't have to pretend to be something else, and he's actually really happy - how could Bella not be worth it then? Edward's family loves him very much, so naturally they wouldn't want anything but happiness for him.
"I love you," he said. "It's a poor excuse for what I'm doing, but it's still true." - Edward Cullen, Twilight.

I totally agree. Jasper wants Edward to be happy and I thought it was so moving that he would even tell Bella that she was worth it!

1. What did you think about the tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?

I thought it was great, but maybe a bit to far cause she hurt her dad in a bad way.

2. There is a lot of interraction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?

That if he really loves her he'll listen to her and do what will please her.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?

He probably thought they were nuts [I did :D] and why make so much trouble over one human

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could feel that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?

Maybe that's his talent, I really don't know.

I think it was means to an end. It was harsh but she had to be convincing.

2. There is a lot of interraction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
It just shows how close they really are. There's an unbreakable bond there.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
I think he was interested in the Cullens and their lifestyle. I also think he just didn't want to get in the middle.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could feel that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
I think he was thinking the same thing Alice was. They love Edward and for the first time they've seen him happy. They know it must be a special person to have that effect on their brother.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?

It was a great tactic however it opened up old wounds for her father.

2. There is a lot of interraction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?

They listen to each other a lot. If he loves her then she will do what she thinks is best

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?

He doesn't want any part of the Hunt because he knows it is crazy only for one human.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?

He felt that Bella was worth it because of the way Edward acted towards his family after he met her. I wasn't surprised.

A bit
2. There is a lot of interraction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
They are very close to each other, they both have "super powers" so they help one another cope with it.
3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali? He is scared of James I think.
4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
Because he and Edward are like brothers, so he knows what Bella means to him. And wouldn't want him to be unhappy - no, distraught. I wasn't that surprised.

1. What did you think of the tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?

Bella used a low blow to get out. She went a little too far, but she knew it was the only way for her to get out. She knew Charlie would be too shocked to stop her from leaving. If she could've explain the situation, Charlie would know that she was just trying to protect him.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?

Edward and Alice are very close. All of the Cullens share a special bond because they are different from the rest of society, but Edward and Alice relate more to one another. They both have a special gift, but it's not the superiority they share, but the torture.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?

Laurent chose to leave the others because he is curious of how the Cullens live. He seems a little more civilized and cultured than James and Victoria, which may be why he wants to try a different approach to the way he lives.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?

I was a little surprised, given how hard he works to follow his new way of life. Bella means the world to Edward, so Jasper is willing to try anything to keep him happy. He knows Edward would do the same if it were Alice in Bella's place. Alice may have helped a little too!

I felt bad for Charlie, but really she had no other choice.

They are very close to each other.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
I am really not sure.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
No i wasn't surprised. I think that all the Culens came to the conclusion that bella was important. Edward needs her.

1.i think it was perfect,just the right amount of emotion.

2.i think that edward and alice's relationship is very close.and,her visions aren't perfectly clear,so that could be another factor.

3.i think that the cullen's lifestyle appealed to him,the idea of being like a family.

4.not at all.every one of the cullens said that bella made the change in edward.that if she died they wouldn't ever be able to look at him again,because he was so out-of-place before her.
