1. At what point were you worried for Bella?s safety with the thugs? Or did you have some idea that Edward would show up just in the nick of time?
A: Only with the thugs... but I had hoped (and was happy) that Edward appeared.

2. How did you feel about Edward?s emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?
A: No, I was'nt worried...for Bella. I actually wished he would have killed those guys... Its very easy to discern what they were thinking :evil:

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?
A: Yes, I was surprised, but only that he shared it so soon. To me it seemed soon anyways... I kind of figured thats what he was doing, speacially after the tyler incident in the parkiing lot (Tyler asking bella to the dance...)

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can?t hear Bella?s mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.
A: Ummm, My thoughts were that maybe she was 'destined' to be his girl, so she was destined to be unique, therefore he can't hear only her mind? if that makes sense lol...

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?
A: It did'nt concern me... it made me swoon and wish that I was her lol...((*thinks for a moment* Wait, I dooo have that in my real boyfriend...*smiles*))

I was worried about the thugs when she first mentioned seeing the group. But I knew Edward would show up because she mentioned seeing his Volvo.

2. How did you feel about Edward?s emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?

I thought it was interesting that he was worried about going off to go after the men. I wasn't afraid of him, and I wasn't afraid for Bella. I was intrigued that he was so protective over someone he kept going back and forth between being friendly and indifferent with.

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?

Yes I was. I thought he could do something like it, but I didn't know exactly what it was.

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can?t hear Bella?s mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?

No, I just brushed it off.

As soon as the boys said anything to her i knew something was up, i was thinking that edward would show up because he saved her last time.

2. How did you feel about Edward's emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?
I was glad he reacted the way that he did. i didnt want him to go off and kill them or anything but i knew his reaction was obviouslt because he cared for her.

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?
I was surpirsed! he went from a locked chest to an open book in two days. perhaps his time with emmett made him realize exactly what and how much he felt for her.


4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can't hear Bella's mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.
I have read new moon....

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?
I thought it was protective. it didn't bother me at all, to me it just showed that he cared for her and he didnt want her to get hurt.

*******Like right off the bat. I mean seriously Stephenie wouldn't have just brought thugs just to have them 'tease' Bella.

2. How did you feel about Edward?s emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?

********Very surprised. I wasnt really worrying about guessing...i was just to into finding out what happened next.

A chapter that really made me feel nervous but also excited.

1. At what point were you worried for Bella?s safety with the thugs? Or did you have some idea that Edward would show up just in the nick of time?
Well, when she turned around and saw that 2 of the men were following her. At that time I didn't think Edward would show up.

2. How did you feel about Edward?s emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?
I wasn't worry for Bella. I thought that the reaction of Edward was something that Bella liked and she didn't feel uncomfortable with him.

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?
Yes, I was surprised. :shock: I never thought that Edward would revealed so quickly his ability to Bella, but I liked it. :)

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can?t hear Bella?s mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.
I've read New Moon.

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?
I think it was kind of cute that Edward watched Bella. I just brushed it off.

1. At what point were you worried for Bella?s safety with the thugs? Or did you have some idea that Edward would show up just in the nick of time?

I wasn't really worried about her safety but more like wondering what she was doing. I didn't think that Edward was some miraculous character (yet) so I didn't assume that he would show up.

2. How did you feel about Edward's emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?

It made me think that Edward was genuinely concerned for her and it did frighten me a bit because he did have that sort of outlook that he was going to actually kill him. By this point I wasn't doubting what he was capable of doing as a vampire at this point.

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?

I was a bit surprised that he just let his gaurd down all of a sudden instead of just easing it in as I thought he would initially. I didn't think that he could read minds but something like read emotions (kind of like Jasper's trait) but either way I thought it was cool that he could.

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can't hear Bella's mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.

I've read it but I remeber my theory before I read NM. I thought that she may have had vampire traits or something that she was unaware of until then. But I was a bit off. :P

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?

I thought it was a bit creepy because if someone told me that I would try to get them to stop. I realize that everyone is obsessed with Edward and would be happy that'd he'd keep a watch but at this point in the book we didn't really get that feeling from Edward yet and such. Afterwards, I thought it was sweet and protective but at first I thought it was stalker-like behavior.
Here, there, and everywhere...that's where you'll find me.

1. At what point were you worried for Bella?s safety with the thugs? Or did you have some idea that Edward would show up just in the nick of time?

I realized that Bella was in trouble when she saw the other guys at the end of the alley. I had no clue that Edward would come and save her until Bella looked up and saw him. :P Ahhh! Edward!

2. How did you feel about Edward?s emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?

I was shocked that he was the one to save her, so I was taken off guard period. I don't remember being afraid of him. I remember thinking how wonderful he was for saving her. :) I'm a sap! I wasn't worried that Edward would hurt Bella at all. I knew that there was going to be something come of them...

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?

I didn't know it was his secret, but I was amazed at how quickly he told Bella that he could read minds. Maybe he felt safe with her as well, like she felt safe with him.

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can?t hear Bella?s mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.

My personal theory?? hmmm... Um, I guess because she isn't like most people. She protects her mind, I think.

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?

Yeah, I guess it was a little strange that Edward was keeping a close watch on her. However, he did explain it quite well for his reasoning behind it. I brushed it off because I knew that they were getting closer to a relationship. I guess because we could see into Bella's mind and we knew that she didn't see him as a stalker.

1. At what point were you worried for Bella?s safety with the thugs? Or did you have some idea that Edward would show up just in the nick of time?
The moment the thugs appeared I had a bad feeling, but it was confirmed when the one guy said hello to Bella. This scene was pretty tense and is one of my favorites in the book.
I didn't know for certain Edward would show up, but a part of me was hoping he would. When he screeched in my mouth nearly dropped open as relief washed over me. I tell you I get way into the story when I'm reading...lol.

2. How did you feel about Edward?s emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?
I was a little freaked out by his anger, but it was also understandable. I wasn't afraid of him and I never thought Bella was in any danger. I was more curious about how protective he appeared to be so quickly.

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?
I was a little surprised by how easily he decided to let his guard down a little and answer Bella's questions truthfully. I hadn't guessed that he could read minds, but at the same time I wasn't surprised he possessed an super power, he is a vampire after all.

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can?t hear Bella?s mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.
Leaving this blank....

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?
It didn't overly concern me because I could see and understand the reasons behind Edward's behavior. However, if you were looking from the outside in with no knowledge it would very much look like a stalker/possessive boyfriend situation.
