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?
I think it had more to do with the fact that Jake isn't supposed to say how many there are, as opposed to not using the word werewolf. I think since he knows Bella accepts him, he doesn't have a problem using the word.
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 in some cases, Edward is either too left or too right. You know? If he does something, he does it all the way or not all at. At first, he would go to any length to keep Bella from Jake, but not he's allowing her to go see him. I do think its good that he let Bella go visit Jake though, because he his her best friend.
3. What was it that Bella caught a fleeting glimpse of in Edward's eyes as he left on page 237?
I think it was part worry and part jealously. Edward knows what is going on in Jacob's head, and most guys wouldn't feel comfortable sending their girlfriend off with guy who thinks about them in that way.
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, they don't like each other, so I think they're both trying to subtly annoy the other one, but not in an outright way.

I think it more has to do with the number of werewolves than the actual word werewolf itself. In Twilight, Bella gets to a point where the word "vampire" isn't so much of a shock to her anymore, so I think it's probably the same way for "werewolf." We've know about the species for a book and a half now, so she should probably be used to it by now.

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's sweet. This whole Edward vs. Jacob thing was going a little far for me, I just wanted Edward to get over his jealousy and protective-ness, and I wanted Jacob to accept that Bella's going to be with Edward.

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

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 makes me laugh, but I bet it's really annoying to Bella. Sorry Jack, I think Edward's got this one in the bag.

1.I think that Jacob has accepted what he is. The word werewolf doesn't bother him. I think it was just because he couldn't tell Bella their true numbers.

2. First of all, Edward did go to far when he essentially kidnapped Bella. But that doesn't mean that he should just let Bella go. He needs to respect it is her choice, and he needs to tell her how he feels about her being with Jacob. He needs to find a middle ground. He needs to tell her how he feels and ask her to choose him.

3. Pain. Concern. Resentment. Rejection. Second thoughts. Fear.

4. It is childish, but understandable. It's also something Bella needs to put an end to, with Jacob at least.

I think it has a little to do with both, but mostly the number of werewolves. Bella already knows too much about the werewolves, so I think Jacob is trying to hide that there are more of them.

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's learning how to trust her. Edward knows that Bella is aware of Jacob's feelings for her, and it's her decision. He is also still grateful to Jacob for taking care of her when he left. Edward has also realized that he isn't the only one able to protect Bella from herself and whatever enemies they encounter. But....I also think Edward's acceptance of Jacob is a little fake, he's trying to make himself look good to Bella, pretending like it's ok, but he's still jealous.

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

Jealously, nervousness. Edward trusts Bella, but he doesn't totally trust Jacob.

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's funny to me, but Bella must be upset by it. They are both trying to be the alpha male and "win" the female. They are both acting like cavemen.

I think that because Jacob is so comfortable with what he says around Bella, he may have gotten in trouble for telling Bella all about he pack. So I think the pause had to do with the fact that Jacob has been forbidden to talk anymore about 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 that he is doing it just to please Bella. Even though i LOVE Edward, I think a lot of what he does in this book, he does to try and minipulate Bella to burn all bridges with the pack. Edward wants Bella on his side, and at this point, he is finally done with trying to get Bella to leave Jake. Now, he let's her have the friendship just so she is happy, and so she is happy with him.

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

Total jealousy! Edward is a man and another guy is taking his property away from him! haha! I think its worry too. Edward doesnt trust Jacob as far as he can throw him (wait, that metaphor doesnt work with vampires....darn). Edward is always going to worry about Bella, no matter how safe she may be.

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?

hahahaha! they are like animals...claiming their territory! Let the dominate male win over the female!

after reading the book i am sure it was because he can't reveal the real number of werewolves. But when i first read, i didn't think about it.


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

He trusts her

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

Jealousy, Nervous, Second Thoughts ect.

i think it's more to do with the fact that the werewolves have been growing and he wasn't supposed to tell anyone about it.

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

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

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 thought it was hilarious how they tried to piss each other off by using bella and at the same time claiming her as his.
"It's the safest time of day for us," he said, answering the unspoken question in my eyes. "The easiest time. But also the saddest, in a way...the end of another day, the return of the night. Darkness is so predictable, don't you think?" He smiled wistfully. " I like the night. Without the dark, we'd never see the stars."

I definitely think it because he knows the number is growing. He has already broken parts of the pact, so he really has to be careful not to do it again.

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

To me this is when Edward walks away and decides not to split Bella in half by making her choose himself or Jacob. Even though in the end Jacob makes a speech about the story of Solomon and walking away instead of splitting the child in half and says that is why he is letting Bella go, I think that Edward has already done that.

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

Jealousy - he is human after all.

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?

See it kind of bothers me a bit. It makes me think they think of her as a piece of property. I think she deserves better than that.
You gave me two alternatives that you could live with, and I chose the one that I could live with. That's how compromise is supposed to work. - Edward

It never entered my thoughts that he was trying to hide the number of werewolves growing. I thought he was just holding back actually saying the word werewolf to her.


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

about darn time!!!!!!!!!!!! If you love someone, you trust them.

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

That Edward doesn't trust Jacob and the love of his life being released to werewolves, his worst enemy and he can't cross the line to protect her. Also jealous, I think this is when it really hits him that he opened the door to allow Jacob in when he left and it hurts.

I loved it. I was laughing so hard. Boys will be boys :)

1. I think it's a mix of both. It must take a while to get comfortable saying that in conversation, and he hasn't been a werewolf for long.
Also he can't reveal how many there are of them. But that's the part I didn't get-if he couldn't reveal how their numbers, so why would he say 6? Why didn't he just say werewolves? That way he doesn't say a number, but he's not lying and giving a false number.
2. I think that it was not really good, but unavoidable. Bella had to see Jacob, with or without permission. But his willingness just made things more complicated.
3. It was probably just panic, anger, and worry. He no used to Bella being with Jacob
4. I think it's kind of like their way of reminding the other that they're there. Like when they give Bella a hug and they smell the other guy, reminding them that there's someone fighting for Bella.
Also they do it just to annoy each other.
I think it's really funny :D
