This chapter was really exciting! I liked it a lot! :D

Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood?
No, but I feel really bad when is me whom they're testing the blood. With the enormous needle I become quite nervous.

Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endager her?
Yes, I was a bit worry about that, but when I read that Edward was going to the nursery my fears disappeared.

Edward says that Bella doesn't seem liek a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment.
It's quite difficult, I think I agree with him. The difference between Bella and others girls is that she is really mature.

What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?
I loved to read that he was worried for Bella. It was kind of different because now he is a near person for Bella, but she knows that he is dangerous for her. That's why the chapter is like the beginning of their "friendship".

Not in small amounts.If I'm around gushing blood I can get a bit queasy though.

I was in a way,but at the same time I wasn't because I knew that even then Edward wouldn't hurt her because he already loved her.


Edward says that Bella doesn't seem liek a junior in high school.
I agree because I think always looking after Renee and making sure she didn't do anything she shouldn't,she is more independent/self sufficient than most.

What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?
I thought it was a bit more.....standoffish than in later chapters because he was still trying to stay away from Bella

Ha, yeah, that's how I finally convinced my dad that I couldn't be a nurse. I went to the blood drive with him and passed out :D. No more forced schooling for me!

I didn't think either one of those things.


Edward says that Bella doesn't seem liek a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment.

Agreed. She has an old soul. She's not caught up in the high school drama, she takes care of her parents, she is responsible. Not to mention her favorite books are the old classics, not the modern day YA stuff. Old Soul.


What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?

He allows himself to have close physical contact with Bella. He also gets closer to her mentally and emotionally. It just seems like he is freeing himself up with her.

Do you remember when Bella was still a bit quesy and she wanted to go home to her car, but Edward insisted that Alice would bring it home for her? How did Alice bring her car back? Did Edward somehow get Bella's keys and gave it to Alice to use or something?

No, i dont feel queasy around blood but i dont have many experinces with it either.


Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endager her?

No, of course not! Edward would never do anything to hurt Bella! No, Edward wouldnt have been able to stand being around Bella's blood but since it was just Mike's it was ok.

Edward says that Bella doesn't seem liek a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment.

Yes, i agree. Bella has practically taken care of her mother forever which would make her more mature than the average high school junior.

What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?

In this chapter Edward is more lighthearted because he has kept Bella alive for this long and now he is more confident that he can do it. Also, before, he hadnt hunted for a while so he was hungry and (as Bella observed) guys are usually cranky when they are hungry.

No, I'm okay with it. That's a good thing too, because I'm clumsy, so i've seen my own blood a lot. It would stink to be as clumsy as Bella and not be able to handle blood.

Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endanger her?
No. I knew that he would use all of his willpower to keep her safe.


Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment.
I agree. She seems to be more mature than the other people her age. I know a lot of people like that, and I don't feel like a junior in high school. There's something about an understated maturity in certain people.


What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter?
I think it is great that he is trying to be closer to Bella. I love how concerned he is for her, and it's one of the first chapters with a little bit of comedy.

Not one single bit. I am hoping to be a doctor eventually so I actaully run to the site of blood in hopes that I'll see something awesome.

Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that there was blood around might endager her?

I thought about it for a moment. I thought to myself "wait isn't he a vampire?" and it definitely clicked why he was skipping biology by that point.

Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment.

I agree because she doesn't so typical tennage things of wanting to "fit in" and be popular, she just wants to get a feel for things and doesn't need that feeling of acceptance that most teenagers want.

What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?

He seemed much more protective of her (besides the fact of stopping a van from crushing her) and concerned that she was hurt. He also seemed a bit more open to her than before and willing to be friends especially since he motioned to her to sit with him at lunch. That really caught me off gaurd more than anything else in this chapter.
Here, there, and everywhere...that's where you'll find me.

Not really. If it is a little cut with a bit of blood it doesn't bother me, but when there is alot i have to look away. I know this because my sister was in a snowmobile accident and there was quite a lot of blood and there was just way to much, and i did feel a but queasy.

Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endager her?

I wasn't afraid. I think i figured he wouldn't do anything to her around school, because of was still unsure of the whole situation.

Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment.

I sort of am in the middle. Bella is very mature and therefore i see his point. But she is also clumsy so i can see as a junior, and plus she is still new to the school. ..Just me opinion.

-i really love blood!!!! not to sound weird but i deal with it a lot in my line of work so im very okay with it. but i think i understand how bella feels because i know people who are scared of blood, even just tiny pricks of it.

Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endager her?
-not really. even in the beginning i never thought that edward would ever hurt her. i have unwavering faith in him that he's really a good guy. :D

Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment.
-i agree. she's more mature than the normal junior in a way. she thinks about her parents more, she worries about stuff that "normal" teens don't and she can face death more readily than most people older than her.

What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?
-edward seems to be more comfortable about opening up to bella. its a really really nice chapter. :D i like the way that he drove her home and worried about her being hurt. :D

Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood?

A: Not to that extreme but if there were enough of it I'd definitely have issues.

Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endager her?

A: I did not. I got all happy because their little romance seemed to be moving forward, however slowly.

Edward says that Bella doesn't seem liek a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment.

A: Totally agree. She's much more mature than any junior I've ever met.

What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?

A: It seemed a tidge more balanced. He wasn't going to as much extremes as he had before.
