Chapitre quatre

Post by The_Rush »

Why do you think Bella doesn't want to go to the spring dance? She could easily just have said to anyone, "let's just go as friends". Why is it that from day one, none of the boys appealed to her?

I think one of the reasons is that Bella is an introvert. She doesn't like to be the center of attention. I think she probably has a lot of insecurities. I mean, she is constantly wondering why Edward would ever fall for her, despite his CONSTANT admiration and assurance to her. So all these boys are asking her, and she's like' "What? Me? Why?" Also I think obviously, she's got Edward on the brain, so of course somewhere in the back of her head she is thinking "I want Edward to ask me" or "I can't go with any of these other boys, because then what if Edward wanted to be with me, and then I wouldn't be free." I personally don't think it has anything to do with her clumsiness, and she just uses that as a defense mechanism.


Bella asks Edward if he has multiple personality disorder because he either seems to be overly friendly or sarcastic moments apart. To what did you attribute Edward's odd behavior?

Seriously, I had no clue what was going on. I mean, I knew Edward was a vampire, so I assumed it had something to do with that. But I really did not have any idea how the schizo behavior related to his vampirey-ness at all. I think I figured when he was nice, it was really him trying to be nice, because he wanted to talk to her, and be with her. But when he was mean, I think maybe he was trying to make her hate him, that way leaving her alone would be easier.

I thought the reason she didn't want to go to the dance was because of she can't dance. Not because of the boys.

She is introverted. The guys at the school are a lot too interested in her, and she doesn't want to lead them on in any possible way.

I think the dance thing was that she really couldn't dance.. and I don't know that it was that no one appealed to her it was probably just that she wasn't used to all the attention and that she was a little uncomfortable.

Well I knew he was a vampire already(i have my friend Raquel to thank for that) so I thought it had sumthing to do w/ that.

Bella is self conscious. She knows she has no balance or grace and doesn't want to embarrass herself, or hurt her partner. I think none of the boys appealed to her because she is more mature than they are. She doesn't think like a 17 year old should, so they do not hold her interest. Also, she's met Edward and she can't get him out of her head, no matter what his reactions are to her.

Edward's odd behavior has to do with his feelings towards Bella. He is suffering from a huge internal conflict, with what is right and wrong in his mind. He feels an attraction towards her, a strange desire to protect her, but he also wants to kill her. That must wreak havoc on a person's state of mind.

I think she has really low self-confidence and doesn't think she can dance, and doesn't want to make a fool of herself. She is obviously hung up on Edward already even if she hasn't realized it yet.

I just thought he was strange, I know a lot of guys who change their mind about how they feel all the time, I thought he carried anger with him and most likely took it out on other people. So if he was having a bad day he wouldn't be as nice to bella, seeing as shes the only non cullen or hale that talks to him at school.

I don't think that Bella is used to having a bunch of guys fawning over her, and doesn't know what to do with that attention. She's not a boy-crazy kind of girl, so she doesn't mind missing the dance, even though she could go with someone.

I laughed really hard when she said that, because I was thinking the exact same thing. Not seriously, but still. I need to reread the chapter, but I was just chalking Edward's behavior up to a combination of being a normal guy with hard-to-understand behavior, and the fact that he was trying to figure out his own feelings for Bella.

-She's like me, not a dance kind of gal. Too much fuss, too much drama, more into seclusion, peace and quiet.
Umm hello she saw Edward. I would rather sit next to him for an hour everyday than settle for any of the guys that asked her out.

-he's obviously torn about something, but you can't blame Bella for not knowing that. We're reading a book we know there's going to be a conflict and a plot will ensue. She's just living her life.

I think the reason she doesn't want to go to the dance is because she has two left feet, she has a hard enough time walking without trying to fall over.
As to why she never had interest in the "normal" boys... I think that there could have been a chance for one of them but her sighting of Edward blinded her, she had eyes for no-one but him from the moment she saw him. I think that's whats so fascinating about the two of them, they are drawn to one another.

I think he's nervous and he's being cautious. I think he develops feelings for Bella pretty much when he gets back, I think she fascinates him and that has him venturing into the core of her being. I think he's very insightful and he knows how extraordinary Bella really is.

bella, is.... different. When you really look at her, you start to see, she doesnt exactly have the most average teenage state of mind. Even without the excuse of not being able to dance... i cant really see her at a school dance. I think the reason no boys appealed to her, is because the cullens intrigued her right away, and after she had seen them, edward especially, nothing else had seemed quite as good.

I just kept thinking it had something to with him being a vampire, and maybe times when he was just in a mood, i didnt know much about vamps. i figured at this point that they were moody :P haha
