1. Bella called and called Jacob to try to find out what was wrong. Do you think it was the right thing for him to try to just ignore her and move on? Or do you think Jacob should have tried to get a message to her sooner?

I think Jacob shouldn't have just ignored her. He should have sealed the deal earlier, or figured out a way around the rules, so Bella would stop worrying and calling.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

It scared me at first, and I was worried that Sam's cult had caused him to become crazy. However, I did think he had BElla's best interests at heart, he just didn't go about it the right way.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

I think Bella made it clear that she didn't like Jake as more than a friend, but she definitely could have tried to define the lines better.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

When I read that part, I didn't think, I just turned the page. I didn't even want to consider what could possibly be at the window.

1) I don't think Jacob should have ignored her like he did. He should have tried to tell her sooner so she wouldn't be too worried.

2) Jacob would always have Bella's best interests in mind. But his new apperance frightened me a little. He could have done things differently in order not to hurt her so much.

3) Bella made it very clear what her relationship with Jacob was. Jacob refused to believe that she wouldn't move on.

4) I knew it wasn't Edward. But I was worried that it was Victoria. But it being Jacob was not far from my mind.

Jacob should have tried to tell her SOMETHING at least, just call and tell her that he was okay...he knew that she already had no clue about Edward's whereabouts, and that he had simply left her, and then Jacob goes and basically does the same thing? He should've known she couldn't exactly handle that.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Did you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?
I didn't exactly think he was frightening, because by then I think I pretty much knew what was going on...but the way he acted towards Bella was uncalled for, after taking out of HER time to come and see if he was okay, he does that.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?
I don't think either. I think she competely liked Jacob as a friend, and honestly, she only may have acted as more because of Edward being gone, and she wasn't used to it going back to how it was before she met Edward. Bella didn't lead him on, and the term "breaking up" was probably just a reference to her state of mind then, because it all went really fast, but I don't think they ever really were "together" so the "breaking up" term I think was used in sort of a different context.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?
Let's see...I hoped it was Edward, I knew it was probably Jacob, and I absolutely did not want it to be Victoria, at all.

I think jake did the right thing by not contacting her .

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

I didn't like the "new" Jacob at first , I was mad at him for not calling Bella and when he was described as bigger and his happy sunny self was no longer there , I just got really mad. :lol: I always thought he had Bella's best interest's in mind even when he appereared frightening and dangerous.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

She does use him in a way , but she does make it clear that its not the same thing for her as it is for him , he needed to take that into account. She really needed jacob to survive when Edward was gone.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

I thought it was Victoria. Coming to get her revenge. :shock:

Or do you think Jacob should have tried to get a message to her sooner? I think even if he tried he wouldn't have been able to ignore Bella for long. I think he should've just told her because she wouldn't stop until she found out what was wrong anyway.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind? I thought Jacob was a lot different, and a lot more intimidating than before. I think Jacob was trying to do what he thought was best. But I don't think Bella saw it that way.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?
I think Bella was always sincere with how much she cared for Jacob. I think Jacob knew that she couldn't love him how he wanted her to. He was giving her time to get over Edward, so she could be with Jacob. He knew exactly what Bella was doing all along.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together? I thought it was Victoria. I was soo freaked. Once I found out it was Jacob, I was relieved.

I was ashamed of him for not at least telling her sooner. I know because of the whole "secrecy" bit that it was important for him to stay tight-lipped about it, but really, if he's so comfortable divulging the Cullen's secret to her, what makes him any different?

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Did you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

He scared me. I thought maybe perhaps he was on drugs or something, or that he'd quite literally just transformed into a cold-hearted...monster.
I most certainly did not think he had Bella's best interest at heart! (excuse me, mind.) He seemed like he was brainwashed at first...or something weird. I was just as mad at him as Bella was, only I doubt I would have had the courage to yell at someone who looked like...that.



3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?


I know she was sincere. Bella would have no reason to lead Jacob on, except for maybe her little attempt in the beginning of Twilight when she flirted a bit to get information from him. (She really was diabolical, even back then!!) lol!
But she made her boundaries clear to him and she never acted inappropriately when she was around Jacob. I see no reason for Billy's accusation other than to just tear Bella down more. (Which makes me angry.)
The only reason I can think of on why Bella used the term "breaking up" referring to the end of her friendship with Jacob was to put it in a deep, personal way that Jacob could understand. Bella saw their friendship as a connection that ran almost as deep as, well, dating I suppose. But I don't think she meant anything more by it.


4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

My heart froze and stopped beating for a few seconds. I honestly thought that it was Victoria, because she'd woken up from a nightmare about her. Who else could it have been? (Besides Jacob, I know. lol!)
The very last person I would have expected it to be was Edward. I mean, the guy practically told her that he didn't love her anymore! What reason would he have for spontaneously showing up in the middle of the night, tapping on her window instead of just opening it and coming inside like he normally did?
No.
I knew it was someone else, and my greatest fear was laid to rest as Bella opened her window to see Jacob.
Instead of Victoria.

I think he should have tried to get a message to her.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Did you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

Honestly, I didn't care. I just wanted Edward back.


3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

Yes and no. Even though she did not mean to, Bella used Jacob.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

I thought..or I hoped it was Edward.

i think that jacob wouldnt have done it anyother way. he was scared and confused. he just exploded into a warewolf...so i guess he was just afraid to tell her.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

i was pretty freaked out. it wasnt him. i felt as if he had changed of somthing.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

I dont think that she was trying to play him. i just think that she was really desprate. Jacob was the only one she could talk to && they were bestfriends. at the moment she the wrond word but what she ment was clear.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

the first thing that went through my mind was Victoria. i was freaking out at that part so i just fliped to the next page && i was relieved to see it was only jake.
I will love you forever- everyday forever. Will you marry me?

Or do you think Jacob should have tried to get a message to her sooner? i think he should have tried to talk to her, i mean honestly, i know what it feels like to suddenly have someone block you out of there life. *literally in some senses* it's not a great feeling.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind? it was kind of weird at first. i mean, suddenly he just changes into something like the complete opposite of what we'd seen him as before. i'm not sure if he had bella's best interest in mind. it seemed kind of selfish if you ask me, to just keep everything to himself. well, selfish isn't the right word...

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings? no, i don't think bella was playing jacob. i mean, she told him that she didn't want to be like that *i think, correct me if i'm wrong*

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?oh! i really thought it was going to be victoria. that part scared me sooo badly!

1. I think he could have been a bit more gentle with the whole ordeal. I easily forgive him because he was obviously trying to keep her safe. Not only that, but he's young, in love (or strong 'like') with someone who's in love with someone else, and now his future is completely destroyed 'cause now he's a werewolf. I think that he has every right to want some alone time.

2. I didn't think he was frightening. After all, it's Jacob. I also always believe that he had Bella's best interest in his mind, even if he doesn't always make the best decisions. Mostly, I was sad when his appearance changed. Between the new look and his open hostility, I wasn't sure their friendship would remain intact.

3. Well...I think Billy was just defending his son. He's trying to be a good father, but it's a rather volatile situation at the moment. As for Bella, well, she's never really been in a situation like this before. She's never even really CARED about guys before. Then, she falls in love with Edward, and then he leaves her. She's finally at least a little happy again with Jacob, but she's also confused. She wants to be with him somehow, but she's not sure how. I know for sure that she was trying to be sincere.

4. Definitely thought it was Victoria. We hadn't seen her yet, so I was like...yeah, she'll come when Jacob might be too distracted to protect her. That would be just Bella's luck.
