Okay, I haven't read New Moon in a little while, but I'll try my best!
1. When Bella thinks that she has died she states, 'If I was in hell, you wouldn't be with me.' What do you think she means by that?
Bella has said that for her hell is being without Edward, so if she was with him, she couldn't be in hell. Also, Bella has called Edward an angel many times, and angels don't exist in hell (at least there not supposed to...)

2. In the part where Edward is telling Bella that he should have been more careful before he went to Italy, he says, 'What was I supposed to think when the boy said Charlie was at the funeral? What are the odds?' Edward contemplates 'the odds' what do you think he is thinking about then?
Edward has said many times that Bella attracts trouble. There were many times when she would have died if he hadn't been there to save her. It makes sense that something would happen to her while he was gone, so it makes sense for him to have thought that.

3. Edward has a plan for if and when the Volturi come to check on Bella. Do you think the Cullen's would actually have a chance against them?
I don't know if the Cullens have a chance against the Volturi. Alice would see them coming, so that would give them a chance to be prepared, but if there was some sort of fight, I don't know how it would turn out.

4. At the end of the chapter Bella decides to put her mortality to a vote. What do you think made her come to this decision? What is Edward thinking when he hears why she wants to go to his house?
Bella knew that while Edward didn't want her to be a vampire and wouldn't changer her, his family might feel differently, and since she would become a part of that family, they should have a say. I'm sure Edward was shocked by her decision, but I also think he understood why she was doing it.

The odds that Bella died around the same time as someone else in Forks??

3. Edward has a plan for if and when the Volturi come to check on Bella. Do you think the Cullen's would actually have a chance against them?


Umm, I kind of doubt it, but who knows!



4. At the end of the chapter Bella decides to put her mortality to a vote. What do you think made her come to this decision?


I don't really know, but I loved it! I was so proud of her for finally deciding to do something about it! :D

1. When Bella thinks that she has died she states, 'If I was in hell, you wouldn't be with me.' What do you think she means by that?
That Edward is heaven to her..and in hell you don't get what you want.

2. In the part where Edward is telling Bella that he should have been more careful before he went to Italy, he says, 'What was I supposed to think when the boy said Charlie was at the funeral? What are the odds?' Edward contemplates 'the odds' what do you think he is thinking about then?
That he is this creature who shouldn't be living and shouldn't have something so good like bella that the odds are always stacked against his favor.

3. Edward has a plan for if and when the Volturi come to check on Bella. Do you think the Cullen's would actually have a chance against them?

No.. I don't think they could of...and that is so hard to say.

4. At the end of the chapter Bella decides to put her mortality to a vote. What do you think made her come to this decision? What is Edward thinking when he hears why she wants to go to his house?

She came to that decision because she knows his family feels kind of like her..that she shouldn't have to sit around and get old with someone who can't..and she was also probally thinking that if eveyone votes no..then she can go die and not worry about hurting them because they don't care. Edward is probalay freaking out..cause he knows the truth..he knows what his family will say..so the only thing to go on for him is praying they change their mind.

1. When Bella thinks that she has died she states, 'If I was in hell, you wouldn't be with me.' What do you think she means by that?

A) Because someone like Edward would never go to hell; they would go to heaven. If he was with him, then she is either in heaven or not dead.

2. In the part where Edward is telling Bella that he should have been more careful before he went to Italy, he says, 'What was I supposed to think when the boy said Charlie was at the funeral? What are the odds?' Edward contemplates 'the odds' what do you think he is thinking about then?

A) I think he was talking about what are the odds that someone close to Charlie would die on the same day as the day Bella decides to jump off a cliff.

3. Edward has a plan for if and when the Volturi come to check on Bella. Do you think the Cullen's would actually have a chance against them?

A) I think the Cullens would have some what of a chance. They are very strong and love eachother as a family, which is very powerful.

4. At the end of the chapter Bella decides to put her mortality to a vote. What do you think made her come to this decision? What is Edward thinking when he hears why she wants to go to his house?[/quote]

A) Edward always wins arguments against Bella, so i think she thought it would be nice to have someone on her side. I have no idea on what Edward was thinking when Bella tells him she's going to his house.

1. When Bella thinks that she has died she states, 'If I was in hell, you wouldn't be with me.' What do you think she means by that? Heaven is being with Edward, hell is being without.

2. In the part where Edward is telling Bella that he should have been more careful before he went to Italy, he says, 'What was I supposed to think when the boy said Charlie was at the funeral? What are the odds?' Edward contemplates 'the odds' what do you think he is thinking about then? What are the odds that he would think she's dead and he would call just to have someone tell him that Charlie's' at a funeral?

3. Edward has a plan for if and when the Volturi come to check on Bella. Do you think the Cullen's would actually have a chance against them? No, there are so many of them and their guard that I think it wouldn't be too hard for them to take down the Cullen's.

4. At the end of the chapter Bella decides to put her mortality to a vote. What do you think made her come to this decision? What is Edward thinking when he hears why she wants to go to his house? I think he was thinking that it was all a joke because his family wouldn't side against him. But Bella finally decided to put her foot down and say that it's her decision and it's her life so she should have a say in it - esp. now that the Volturi are waiting for her to turn
"Because right now, physically, there's nothing I want more than you. More than food or water or oxygen."

Team Edward - Cause only a vampire can love you forever!
Team Bella - I want to be a monster too!

1) Bella means that if she had died, and gone to hell, then he would either be alive, or would have gone to heaven for being so good.

2) I think he means what are the odds of someone dying the same day as bella. i'm not really sure, since i dont' really get that part.

3) Yes. But if Alec was with the Volturi, no.

4) She made this decision because she thinks that Edward's family should have a say in what se becomes. I also think that she knew they would except her....

That Edward's not going to hell.

That he should of checked more and not been so rash.

3. Edward has a plan for if and when the Volturi come to check on Bella. Do you think the Cullen's would actually have a chance against them?

Yeah I do.

4. At the end of the chapter Bella decides to put her mortality to a vote. What do you think made her come to this decision? What is Edward thinking when he hears why she wants to go to his house?

To show Edward it's not just her who thinks she sould be a vampire, and that her decision is made and his family should have a say in it. Think he was thinking something along the lines of "Err, what? Oh...crap."

Edward wasn't going to change her so might as go right to the source. He is probably trying to figure out what is going inside of her head.

1. She loves Edward, and though he believes he should b a monster in her eyes, he could never be father from the truth. She dreams of him constantly (even if she tries not to think of him, she cheats) and only heaven could hold such an angel.

2. What are the odds that it WASN'T Bella who had died?.. he was just checking to make sure what rosalie had said was true, and he was quick to judge. Poor him.

3. i think he's planning on running away.
But no, I dont think they have any chance against the Volturi. I mean, Edward was POWERLESS against them.

4. Edward obviously has his doubts but he's the kind of person who usually gets his way. not in a spoiled manner, but like.. charmingly.
Bella.. Is also VERY stubborn. So she wants her way, but cares about what the family shes forcing herslef into thinks.
