1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?
I think its a huge combination of both...which makes it that much more frustrating lol.

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?
Well most of it is guilt, but there is a bit of confusion that I think she wants to figure out... but deep down, she knows that Edward is her destiny.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?
She expected it, plus she agrees with edward.

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?
If I was her, with my loyalty to Edward first, yes. But I would also have tried to cool the situation down so that hostage takeing would'nt be nessesary.

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?
No, if I was her I would be touched, despite the fact that it makes the whole prisoner thing even more obviously a set up...

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous? honestly I really think that he is jealous and he is concerned I mean look at Emily Young's face yah I would be concerned to and I also think that he could be jealous because Jacob was there when he left and so Bella cares for Jacob because of that.. It is almost a guilt thing too with Edward even thought Bella forgave him or in her words nothing to forgive..

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more? I think it is guilt because after Jacob was there for her she feels obligated to him even though she made it very clear to him that she is not in love with him..

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage? In a way I think that Bella likes it and she is not going to admit it because she loves the cullens and she doesn't want to be away from them

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car? heck yah

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?
No I would be like wow comfy bed...

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?
I think he may be a bit jealous because of what is going on in Jacob's head. Because it is foreshadwoed in Twilight that there is something there for Jacob at prom that makes Edward mad. If he were truly concerned about Bella's safety, he would have said something.

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?
I think it's more guilt then anything. If there is something there, it could be like the sticky stuff left after a band-aid is taken off. Edward leaving was the cut, Jacob was the band-aid, and now that the cut is gone and the band-aid is also ripped off, all that is left is the sticky goop. And I think she's trying to get it off, and she thinks to get it off properly is to see Jacob.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?
Because she knows that it is for the common good of Bella's safety and health.

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?
I would probably do it anyways without the car (expecting that the reasons that Edward told me to capture her in the first place were good ones) but if I got a car-hey-I'm not complaining!

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?
No. I personally would have rather slept on a very comfy and soft bed then a leather couch. Plus, I would think that he might be saying something, or suggesting that he's ready.

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?


It could be both, but knowing Edward, he is a rational thinker, so he just might be really concerned that they're dangerous, especially that they're pretty much archenemies.

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?

During this part of the book, I tried so hard to think of it as guilt, but it was undeniable that she was having feelings for him. Jacob did fill in the hole that Edward left open, so we couldn't blame Bella for feeling that way.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?

She probably thought it was funny, knowing that it was Edward doing it anyway, and if she had known better, Edward was just definitely doing this for her own good, and that he'd know his limits, even if he had to push it a little. And for her own selfish reasons, at least she'd be alone with Bella.


4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?


I would have, knowing Alice. It would have probably been pretty normal, and Alice wouldn't really ask anything out of Edward's abilities.

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?

Being Bella of course, I would. But in the end, I wouldn't really mind after all, haha. ;) I'd be too tired, and plus, the bed seemed really comfortable to sleep in.
Speaking of Italy and sports cars that I stole there, you still owe me a Yellow Porsche.

I think its a bit of both, I mean I wouldn't want my boyfriend to hang out with a pack of wolves lol

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?

I think she feels guilty because Jake was always there for her

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?

Because she knows its the right thing

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?

Yeah , because I would be really close to Edward and I would do what he wanted.. Besides! Its a Porsche?!

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?

No, I would think that it was really sweet of him.

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?

Edward is jealous. It's already been said (somewhere) that he has underestimated her love for him. He can read Jacob's mind, he knows exactly how he feels for her.

I don't know about you, but if my husband were able to read another man's mind and that man was in love with me...he'd be a little uncomfortable leaving me alone around him. Particularly if he were a little ... unconvinced of how I felt for him.

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?

I believe she loves him like she would a brother. She has good instincts and if she feels like she needs to be with him at a particular moment, she probably does.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?

Because she's mean like that :wink:

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?

Yes, there is very little I wouldn't do for a Porsche.

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?

I'd be angry about the bed because it's being wasted. They could kiss on the couch, for crying out loud.

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?
i think that edward is jealous..because he did leave bella and has to deal with her friendship with jacob..also jacob is in love with bella..


2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?
i think it is because she is in love with him..even though she doesn't know it yet..and they are best friends..

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?
i think alice expected bella to be a little mad..

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?
yes..not for the car though..just to help out
5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why? maybe..it is kind of a bribe and it is him caring for her because he doesn't want her to sleep on the couch

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?
I think he's concerned, but mostly jealous. He knows right away there is a special connection between Bella and Jacob.

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?
She says it herself. She's happy when he's happy and she also feels his pain. Obviously there is something more to their relationship, but she was too hung up on Edward during his absence to recognize the connection.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?
lol. I'm sure she knows Edwards anger is by far worse than Bella's.

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?
Alice means well, I agree that the car is merely a perk. She would have done all she could to keep Bella safe anyway.

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?
I would be angry at first, but Edward really does mean well in his own way. I think I would be mad at the fact that the bed meant that he completely thought out the kidnapping and meant for it to last.

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?
Both. This is Edward we're talking about and he's always worrying about Bella and his 'danger magnet' theory. Which was proven to be true more than once. On the other hand, he said it himself once 'I may not be human, but I am a man'. So yeah, concerned and jealous

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?
I think SHE thought it was guilt and 'just a friend' worrying about another friend but she didn't know that she loved Jacob at that time and she does really believe that she's just worrying about him as a friend. But I know it's really she loved (ugh! i cringed when I typed it) Jacob in that way too.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?
simply cause she's Alice :P
and she knows Bella won't stay mad at her for long



4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?
well, it is a porsche?! so definitely yeah! oh, and also cause it'll keep Bella safe :P

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?
I want to say yes cause I'm not into big spending but let's be realistic,who could stay mad at Edward? :wink:
"Would you please stop trying to take you clothes off?"Edward
"Why, do you want to do that?", asked Bella, CONFUSED

oh, Bella. You're too innocent to be seductive.
which is why this quote gets me every time
