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 had a feeling something was going to happen. Edward showing up made the part a million times better.

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 worried about Bella yes. I didn't think that he would hurt her but I think that if he didn't stop she would have seen a side of him that would scare her away.

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 because he knew too many things about what everyone else was thinking.

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 read New Moon 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?

I thought it was in a way sweet because he was looking after her with every waking moment of his life. But in a way I thought that he was trying to save her for himself to one day be bitten by him.

--I was very worried right before the silver Volvo and it's fine owner showed 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 was never afraid of him or for Bella i was too busy swooning in my seat.

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 surprised that he opened up that much actually. I kind of guessed since the whole first day at the cafeteria.

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.
--Bella is Bella and maybe it was fated to be like that.

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 actually love it! It's the sweetest thing i personally think.

Um, basically right away, I knew that there probably wouldn't be any point to including the thugs if nothing was going to happen.

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 that based on the situation he handled himself very well, if this had happened further along in there relationship I think that his reaction would be way different. He was a little scary, but overall not that bad.

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?
Honestly, I had no idea that he even had a power like that so when he started talking about it, at first I thought he was refering to being a vampire. Then I had to go back and re read because none of it made any sense. Haha.

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.
........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 was a little concerened, if it was just some regular guy it probably would of been way more creepy, but come on! It's Edward!

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: i was never worried, i just had this hunch that he would show up, i dont know why but i sort of guessed that one.

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, not at all, i was never afraid of him and i was never worried about Bella. I thought the way he reacted was rasional.

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: Of course i was suprised, i figured it would take a little time for him to actually open up to her. I never guessed his secret, but with the Tyler thing i guessed that he was able to do something, but i never thought of mind reading.

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: Well, im not completley sure. I mean, maybe there is something wrong with her head. I cant really answer this because im honestly not sure, i have no theory and it still seems ironic to me, of all people, he cant read her mind.

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: No, no, no. I was never one bit concered...the first time. The first time i read through Eclipse, i thought, oh he is just protective because he loves her. Well the 2nd, 3rd, so on, times that i re read it, i started thinking differently. I mean, sometimes he acts like a father figure, and its sort of strange to me. Although i dont think he seems like a stalker.

i was worried about her since the dudes came out. i was hopeing that he would show up and thankfully he did in the last second pheww

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 think he was reacting the right way for someone who knew what the guys were planing to do to Bella. no i wasn't afraid of him i thought that his whole behavior was really cute. nah i kew Bella wasn't in any danger with Edward there with 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?
no i wasn't, he really didn't have to lie to her since she already kind of knew what was going on. no i didn't know that was his secret

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 think it's because he wants to hear her thougths so bad that he just can't (that happens)

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 thought it was really cute for him to look after her in such a passionate way

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: I certainly hoped something would happen involving Edward but I don't know that I expected it quite like that. I grew concerned about the moment she first mentioned them. I've felt that before though my situation wasn't so obviously dangerous.

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: I was excited that he'd shown up and seemed very concerned for her. I was a little afraid of him and for Bella but it passed very 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?

A: I hadn't guessed it and I was a little surprised but given the evidence Bella provided he could hardly deny it any more.

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: I didn't have one that was any good or could really be put into words.

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 seemed stalker-ish but not in a bad way at all.

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?

When she first walked past them. You could tell that they were thinking something and that they were too drunk to not. I figured Edward would show up, though, because she had seen a "shiny silver volvo" in Port Angeles. It just looked empty. The connection was easy, though.

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

Not at all afraid. I was ecstatic and excited. I did get a little worried for Bella, though, but he was fine. I couldn't see him hurting her at all.

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 little. I figured he would hold that back, but I was happy to know. Finding out anything about Edward is exciting.

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 and I know the real reason, but I still have my initial theory and I still like to believe it's because of this. I think that it has something to do with their relationship. Their connection is so strong, he doesn't need any help from anything else, including his power.

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?

Nooo. I found it cute.

<b>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?</b>
I started to worry when she realized that she had been herded and was now approaching the other two men. Up until that point I had believed that she would simply escape the situation, possibly with the loss of her purse. It didn't really enter my mind that Edward would follow her to Port Angeles.

<b>2. How did you feel about Edward's emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?</b>
It shocked me how angry he was. It was the first time that I think I realized just how connected he felt to her. I wasn't so much afraid of him as afraid of what he might do. I wanted him to stay with Bella, not run off and do something I knew he would regret. Plus, I like that Bella (and I ) was able to look at him as a good being and didn't want anything to happen to change that. I never once thought Bella was in danger once he picked her up. He was trying so hard to keep himself in check, to not hurt the men that I couldn't imagine he would willingly keep her in the car with him if he was worried about causing her harm.

<b>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?</b>
I was somewhat surprised that it came out so quickly but not surprised that he did tell her. He seems resolved to tell her the truth -- provided she guesses it first. As if he desperately wants to share with her but can't bring himself to break the silence unless she has figured out enough to render his silence unnecessary.
I actually hadn't guessed this secret. I was attributing his remarkable ability to read people to amazing vampire observation. Our lack of interaction with other vampires did do anything to prove me wrong.

<b>4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can't hear Bella's mind?</b>
Um'.I plead the fifth.

<b>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?</b>
This didn't concern me at all. If he really is a vampire and extremely old (as suggested by Jacob) then he has seen the dangers that await humans -- especially accident prone ones like Bella. He has already opened himself up to her so much and seemingly invested so much himself in her that for him to protect her like that made sense to me. The fact that it didn't bother her in the slightest made it far easier to accept too.

1 I knew something would happen when she left Jess and Ange, but I didn't think anything bad would happen to her (even though I wasn't positive it would be Edward who helped her)
2 No I was like "Aw, how sweet!" He really cared that much about her that he would freak out like that. And he was stalking her. Yet it didn't creep me out! Hehheh, stalker is such a great word for it.
3 Psht, no, Bella already knew. Yeah, I had guessed it.
4 *twitch* I've already read the series.
5Ha! I did think of him a a stalker (as I said above) but it was just so sweet and funny, I didn't think of it as a creepy perverted stalker. So I guess I did kind of brush 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 was actually never really worried for her safety in this chapter, okay so maybe I was slightly, but I always had the feeling that, yes, Edward was going to come to her rescue.

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

Not afraid of him, or worried for Bella, I felt that his reaction was showing how much he cares about her and how worried he was that he wouldn't find Bella in time, but that he was expressing it through anger towards those men.

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 that he gave in that fast about his ability, after denying for so long and so hard, but at the same time it wasn't a huge shocker because he knew that Bella would or already had figured it out for herself.

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 honestly, wasn't sure.

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 actually found it sweet that he kept such a close watch over her, being the Edward fan and hopeless romantic that I am, i found it really sweet that he watched over her that closely, not stalker like at all.
