1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen? I thought there would be a showdown with Victoria, I knew she went to Italy, so I thought it was going to happen there!

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?
He sounds like he was ashamed, which is sad, but being a werewolf is probably really frustrating!

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time? I think he thought Bella was a vampire now, and I think it worried him...a LOT!

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information? Yeah, that was helping the enemy, but at the same time, she thought Edward was gone forever, and I think even though she still had loyalties to the Cullens, she forgot too quickly and let the info slip!

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die? This may get long! This was my absolute favorite chapter of the book, I cried the entire time. Through these books, I've been able to feel Bella's pain as if I were her, and whenever she would talk about the gaping hole in her chest, I knew what she meant. When it came to the cliff, I just sobbed. She wanted to hear Edwards voice so badly that she didn't care, her fear was gone. She was desperate, and it was beautifully written. When she heard the voice of Edward in her mind, she was calm. I didn't think she was going to die, I hoped with all my might that Edward was going to save her, but then Jacob did. When she knew she was dying, she said "Goodbye, I love you" and that made me sob even harder!!! GREAT CHAPTER!

"I could feel my heart racing in my chest, the blood pumping hot and fast through my veins again. My lungs filled deep with the sweet scent that came off his skin. It was like there had never been any hole in my chest. I was perfect-not healed, but as if there had never been a wound in the first place"

1) I figured that Victoria would come after Bella and there would be some serious fighting between the werewolves and her.

2) It was like Edward calling himself a monster. I felt really bad for him.

3) Jacob must have thought that Bella was a vampire. For him, that is a terrible thought.

4) She probably shouldn't have given him that much information, but it was helpful here and helpful later on, I'm kind of waiting for it to come back and bite her. Yes, pun intended.

5) For a moment, I thought Edward was there. But then I told myself that he wasn't there, it was just her subconscious. I knew she couldn't die. She just couldn't.

[quote="Alphie"]These questions were created by BHG - (that's bronzehairdgirl for those of you who haven't figured that out yet!)

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?

VICTORIA MIGHT DIE AS JAMES DID...

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?

HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND AND HE THINKS IT IS A BURDEN. HE WANTS TO BE COMPLETELY HUMAN TO BELLA AS EDWARD WASN'T

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?

HE WAS SCARED THAT THE SAME THING COULD HACE HAPPENED WITH EDWARD. "WHY THE HELL ISN'T SHE AN VAMPIRE." THEN AFTER BELLA SAYS THAT EDWARD SAVED HER: "THANKS TO FOR EDWARD AT THAT POINT"

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?

IT FELT THAT IT WAS KIND OF A PRIVATE THOUGHT. NOT REALLY, THE WEREWOLFS COULD USE IT AANIST THE CULLENS.

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?[/quote]

WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING BELLA? NO I HAD READ AHEAD WHEN EDWARD LEFT SO SHE WAS DTILL ALIVE.

For some reason I loved this chapter. Perhaps it was the whole bittersweet thing, I'm not sure. Still, on with the questions.


1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?

I was wondering what Bella would do. She didn't have the Cullens to protect her and she couldn't exactly spend all her life with Jacob. He has to sleep too and I doubt Charlie would like it if he was found in her bed.

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?
Repetition? :P I kind of worked out that he was a werewolf from the stories. Hey, if he's a monster, he can be a monster. At least Bella isn't dead (yet...)


3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?
He was probably beating himself up and wondering how Bella attracts so much danger to herself. I mean, it's not normal for a 18 year old to have vampires and werewolves following her around.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?

I don't think she should have but that's only because my loyalties lie with the Cullens. She would have told him eventually but I don't think she should have said quite so much.

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?

Bittersweet. I was thinking "Nooooo!!! You have so much to live for!" and I did not think she saw Edward, because it wasn't. I didn't think she was about to die because there was a fair amount of the book left. :P

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?
I remember thinking that Victoria was going to come and try to kill her, but be thwarted by the werewolves.

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?
I was thinking, "Psh, you try and copy Edward, but you fail miserably, Jacob."

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?
I thought he was overracting and though he was going to like... morph into were-jacob. I think he was thinking of the horror of being bitten by a vampire or seeing Bella bitten by a vampire, that he was angry that someone could do such a thing.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldnt have given him so much information?
SHOULD NOT HAVE. Well, at the time I believed it. I thought that Edward and Company were going to come back and the werewolves would try to use this information as an aid in war against them or something. I was like, "NOO! SHUT UP."

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?
I was thinking that she had gone mad. And at first I thought she was really committing suicide, but after rereading I could see he rpoint. And I actually thought Edward was there, you know, saving her... and pounding water out of her. So I was extremely depressed when it was Jacob. Mere, Jacob. I didn't for one second think that she was going to die, obviously there are more chapters in the book and it would be weird for Meyer to randomly change perspectives, unless she was planning to write from dead Bella's POV

[color=#AB6298][size=84]Sweet young man,
Goes walking down the street wiping blood
Off his hands.
It doesn't look good but he does
What he can
To erase the signs
Of a nightmare he faced at the scene of the crime.
She snuck up behind him
As he knelt by her victim
Whispered I knew you'd come and there's nothing to be done
If I was you, I'd run.

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen? I thought it wouldn't be too long before another incident like James occurred.

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster? I could see why he'd call himself that, he hadn't quite accepted it at this point.

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time? I think before he found out who had done it I was thinking he assumed it was Edward, then he was probably angry that she was even put in that position to begin with.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information? I didn't want her to give up all that information but when she didn't think Edward was coming back and it didn't matter, I see why she did.

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die? I jumped ahead in the book because I wanted to see when Edward came back. I happened to jump to this spot and I did think that Bella was trying to kill herself. Then I read the chapter and it made sense...
"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!

That she would end up in somewhat of the same situation

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?
i felt bad for him.

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?
I am pretty sure he wanted to kill James again.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?
well either way, he finds out in Eclipse.

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?
I really thought Victoria was what was going to bring the Cullens back to Forks.


2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?
Of course he is a monster. Why else would Bella have some kind of attraction to him.

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?
I wasn't surprised. I knew he would be extremely upset. I think he was mad a Edward for letting James get that close to her and I'm sure he was wondering why she wasn't a vamp.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?
I was upset with Bella. I know Jacob is her friend, but he is the natural enemy of the Cullens - her family - and that was wrong to do that to them.

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?
I didn't think she was about to die. I think she had such an adrenaline rush that it made her delusions that more vivid. I knew Jacob would never let her die like that.
