Chapter Ten: Scent

Post by Alphie »

Thanks to AmberEyes for the questions!

1. Jacob says "C'mon you think someone is going to get past all -- all six of us?" Do you think his pause has to do with using the word werewolves as Bella suspects or do you think it has to do with the fact that Jacob has already been forbidden to reveal that the number of werewolves have been growing?

2. What did you think of Edward's new found acceptance of Bella's judgment when it comes to her friendship with Jacob?

3. What was it that Bella caught a fleeting glimpse of in Edward's eyes as he left on page 237?

4. What do you think of Edward and Jacob taking turns provoking each other by marking Bella with their scents and accentuating their relationships with her in front of each other?

well at first I assumed it was because of the word werewolves but later when I finished the book and hit this scene again, I felt it was more the latter. Either way I didn't give it that much thoguht.

2. What did you think of Edward's new found acceptance of Bella's judgment when it comes to her friendship with Jacob?

I was glad he finally saw that he wasn't going to get his way with this one. I can totally understand him being jealous, Bella was very unfair in her need to keep Jacob close, but he was so unreasonable about the danger werewolves posed for her. I mean she hangs out with a handful of vampires who kill humans for food, and he's upset that she hangs out with monsters meant for protecting humans? Come on, Edward. Be reasonable.

3. What was it that Bella caught a fleeting glimpse of in Edward's eyes as he left on page 237?

I think she was right that it was worry. I think it was also jealousy, of course. This is tricky for him. He knows what's going on in Jacob's mind and I think knowing that would make any boyfriend uncomfortable. I felt bad for him here, that whole motorcycle thing.

4. What do you think of Edward and Jacob taking turns provoking each other by marking Bella with their scents and accentuating their relationships with her in front of each other?

Childish of course! lol But boys are going to be boys and they're both in love with her, what else would you expect?! They're fighting over a woman and they stated clearly that they wouldn't be fighting fair.

*Probably the numbers...I think they want to keep the numbers a secret so that they have the element of surprise.

2. What did you think of Edward's new found acceptance of Bella's judgment when it comes to her friendship with Jacob?

*Edward is always too right or left. He needs to learn how to stand on middle ground. He shouldn't give in too much or too little.

3. What was it that Bella caught a fleeting glimpse of in Edward's eyes as he left on page 237?

*Sarcasm for kissing Bella like that in front of Jacob. Worry, because he always worries about Bella. Jealousy, because..who wouldn't be. Sadness, because Bella's feelings for Jacob makes him feel sad...DUH

4. What do you think of Edward and Jacob taking turns
provoking each other by marking Bella with their scents and accentuating their relationships with her in front of each other?

*Very funny and typical guy stuff.

I actually believed he had a hard time saying werewolf the first time I read the book, but as soon as they all appeared at the council I figured that at least the Clearwater kids were already part of the pack.

2. What did you think of Edward's new found acceptance of Bella's judgment when it comes to her friendship with Jacob?
I think he came to the realization that if he kept being so objective to their friendship, she would end up hurting herself sneaking out to see him. He also knew that being so against the friendship began pushing them closer together again.

3. What was it that Bella caught a fleeting glimpse of in Edward's eyes as he left on page 237?
I would say pain, rejection and Jealousy. He loves her with every ounce of his existence but he knows that him leaving is what brought about this situation. Which is why I think it's so painful for him to accept the friendship between them. I also think this is when he realizes that Bella loves Jake, even though she doesn't know it.

4. What do you think of Edward and Jacob taking turns provoking each other by marking Bella with their scents and accentuating their relationships with her in front of each other?
They are men fighting for the same woman, it's the only way they can taunt each other because of the treaty. I really don't think it's fair how they use Bella as a go between though. It sometimes felt like they were marking their territory. (I'm sure glad Jake did this as a human, especially when you think of how dogs mark their territory. . . Yuk!)

i just thought it was using the word werewolf. i couldn't explain it at first.

<b>2. What did you think of Edward's new found acceptance of Bella's judgment when it comes to her friendship with Jacob? </b>
he saw that trying to keep bella away from jacob was making her resent him and bringing bella and jacob closer together. he probably didn't want to upset her anymore too..

<b>3. What was it that Bella caught a fleeting glimpse of in Edward's eyes as he left on page 237? </b>
i think it was pain and jelousy. he knows that bella and jacob do love each other, and hes having trouble dealing with it.

<b>4. What do you think of Edward and Jacob taking turns provoking each other by marking Bella with their scents and accentuating their relationships with her in front of each other?</b>

very typical guy behavior. its actually kind of amusing.

-They can't say how many they are. Remember when they were in the clearing for the "killing-newborn vampire" classes, there were a lot more of them than they expected; I believe it mentions they can't reveal how many there are in a pack.

2. What did you think of Edward's new found acceptance of Bella's judgment when it comes to her friendship with Jacob?

-It's not really acceptance per say, it's just that he wants to be the good guy, you know not make her suffer anymore. He sees what it is doing to her to be away from Jacob, and he loves her enough to give her that.

3. What was it that Bella caught a fleeting glimpse of in Edward's eyes as he left on page 237?

-In apart it is worry, but not "danger worry" more like "I am going to loose her worry". On the other hand there's also hurt. Edward does not want Bella to know what this is doing to him. He doesn't feel betrayed, he just wishes he could be more for her.

4. What do you think of Edward and Jacob taking turns provoking each other by marking Bella with their scents and accentuating their relationships with her in front of each other?

-:D I think it's funny, they are marking their territory. They do it to let the other know that he -Jacob or Edward- is not going to back down. But at the same time its taring Bella; having to choose.

1. I think that it was Jacob not wanting to reveal the numbers that made him hesitate. I think that he has gotten over saying werewolf, and if you look at the sentence, it doesn't look like he was going to say werewolf. He would have had to say "C'mon, you think someone is going to get past all of us werewolves", that just doesn't seem to be a very Jacob thing to say. it doesn't sound like him. Another reason I think he hesitated was that he is used to telling Bella everything. He told her he was a werewolf, and everything that came with it. It probably feels weird for him to keep it from her.

2. I think that Edward's total exceptance was another of his black and white decisions. Edward can't seem to come to a middle ground on anything. He seems to pick a solution, and then agonize over the negatives about his solution, until he decides it was totally wrong, and goes the other direction. (ex. deciding not to ignore Bella, deciding to leave Bella, ect.)

3. I think it was a mixture of worry and jealousy that she saw in his eyes. Even though he decided that he would let her decide the danger of it, he still is terrified of what could happen to her when Alice can't see. He's also jealous, because I think Edward does know that Bella loves Jacob, and he is insanely jealous and afraid that she will realize that she loves Jacob and leave him.

4. I think that Edward and Jacob were both being silly and jealous when they attempted to "mark" Bella. This was just one of the many examples through the rest of the book when they try to "one up" each other through Bella. [/i]

1. Jacob says "C'mon you think someone is going to get past all -- all six of us?" Do you think his pause has to do with using the word werewolves as Bella suspects or do you think it has to do with the fact that Jacob has already been forbidden to reveal that the number of werewolves have been growing? Proably both he wants to keep thier numbers secert and has always had trouble with what he is.


2. What did you think of Edward's new found acceptance of Bella's judgment when it comes to her friendship with Jacob?
I think it shows that he has grown and realized that his judgement is not always right.

3. What was it that Bella caught a fleeting glimpse of in Edward's eyes as he left on page 237? worry, jelousy or anger.

4. What do you think of Edward and Jacob taking turns provoking each other by marking Bella with their scents and accentuating their relationships with her in front of
each other? It is inmature but they are fighing and usign all the ttools they have at their disposal.

It's definately because he cant tell her how many werewolves there actually are. Or perhaps he is in fact just uncomfortable and still not used to using the term 'werewolf' at all...hmm i can't decide..

2. What did you think of Edward's new found acceptance of Bella's judgment when it comes to her friendship with Jacob?

It seems all nice and sweet now, but it will definately come back to haunt him... :cry:

3. What was it that Bella caught a fleeting glimpse of in Edward's eyes as he left on page 237?

I'm guessing the hidden anger that he keeps from her. The fact that she is with Jacob must agitate him at least a little, and he definately didn't just get all of his acceptance out of nowhere.. he has to be hiding the rest somewhere.

4. What do you think of Edward and Jacob taking turns provoking each other by marking Bella with their scents and accentuating their relationships with her in front of each other?

I think it's funny :) , sort of like tug of war. ahah

I thought, and still do think, that the pause was because there are now more wolves than Bella was aware of at the time.

2. What did you think of Edward's new found acceptance of Bella's judgment when it comes to her friendship with Jacob?

Edward realized that Jacob is important to Bella and that seeing him makes her happy, which is what he wants.

3. What was it that Bella caught a fleeting glimpse of in Edward's eyes as he left on page 237?

Probably worry. I haven't read Eclipse for a while, so I'm not entirely sure what part that was. ^^;

4. What do you think of Edward and Jacob taking turns provoking each other by marking Bella with their scents and accentuating their relationships with her in front of each other?

That part always makes the saying "boys will be boys" pop in my head. It's immature, but funny.
