When I first read it I automatically swooned and thought "Edward and he's going to change her!" then I looked at it and read it a hundred or so more times and now I'm honestly worried. I mean I was so happy in Eclipse when she finally realized she loved Jake and realized she wasn't just hurting Jake she was hurting Edward too in the process and with this realization she knew she had to pick. When she picked Edward I was so happy and I thought, "This is it then. She is 100% certain on Edward and the next book is going to be about them together facing conflicts TOGETHER. And she better get changed." Now I'm second guessing myself and worrying that Jacob will be back and that maybe Bella's decision isn't 100%. That would kill me. This is the last book from Bella's POV and the last one revolving around her and Edward....I NEED this book to be mostly about them and I NEED them to be together. haha This series can't have a bad ending for me. She doesn't belong with Jake (in fact Jake deserves better...not saying I hate Bella because I really don't at all...but he deserves to imprint and find HIS soul mate) she 100% belongs with Edward. Their love started this series and I want it to be their ETERNAL love that ends their story.

After going through each post and finding several new ideas, and reading the quote about a hundred times since I got home from the book store, I guess I'll just go through opinion by opinion. As to who Bella is talking to, I am pretty much 100% certain that it's Edward, or at least I was when I first read it. Now that I have scrutinized the thing, probably far too much, I see the absolute minuscule possiblity of it being Jacob. I REALLY hope it's Edward, though.... I've always been one to run with the vampires :) Anywho, I am still kind of specualting as to when it's said. My guess is before she is biten, as I hope that she'll be biten fairly early on in the book. But Stephanie has made us wait this long, and I could see her waiting for the end of Breaking Dawn to do it, too. Some cruel person mentioned that this quote could actually be the end... And they're right! How awful would that be!!!! Something tells me that Stpehanie wants to live, though, so I think it won't be. As to the whole Jacob or Edward business, Edward is Bella's only true love. Jacob is a sweet heart, but I hope he finds someone that can give him her heart. He deserves that. I am sure that in Breaking Dawn Bella will have some kind of thing with Jacob, not sure how or why, but this series started with Bella and Edward, and I think it'll end with them, too. Anyways, after all of this thought and meditation, I have only found one truth: August 2 is WAY too far away!!!!

I think that the words refer to Bella & Edward...I think Bella has made her choice of Edward & I hope/assume that we have moved past any wavering.
Because of Bella's certainty here & the lack of fear I think this passage refers to their first night on their honeymoon. With every nerve a live wire she is anticipating something! I think if it was the bite, no matter how much she wants to be with Edward forever she would still be more afraid...of the pain, of the unknowable, of being irrevokably changed. She has long wanted to "bake" with Edward & is convinced that he would never hurt her, so I hope these words are about that scene.

These words also reminded me of how much I love these books & their romance & tenderness.

Be My Escape wrote:"Don't be afraid," I murmered.
"We belong together."
I was abruptly overwhelmed by the truth of my own words.
This moment was so perfect, so right.
There was no way to doubt it.
His arms were wrapped around me,
Holding me against him....
It felt like every nerve ending in my body was a live wire.
"Forever, " he agreed.

So what do they mean and who is she peaking them too??
At first I thought that the we belong together part was the guy talking but now I realize that it's Bella. Also I thought that she was talking to Jacob. But the way she is thinking is just so set for Edward not Jacob. I mean think about it. Live wires? With Jacob she is at least very coherent in his presence but with Edward she is pretty much out of it. All she concentrates on is him and breathing. Not with Jacob. And it is possible to be overwhelmed by knowing that they belong together. She always thought of how much they loved each other and how she can't live without him. She never really grasped the fact that they BELONGED together.

So summary: Talking to Edward about immortality and possible changing.

I'm confused... Did she say "we belong together" or did "he" say it???
I read it thinking Edward. Then I htought "Oh poo!!! What if it's Jacob?!?!?" Then realized that couldn't be possible... Then I thought... "Maybe since she said that she was REALIZING that it was the truth.. which means that she didn't know before... which means It could possibly be Alec with some sort of seduction power! that's how they have the most power in the Volturi, because Alec is manipulating????"
then i was like... "nah!!! it could be them "trying" and Edward being really afraid becuase he thinks he could hurt her. "

so i think it's Edward but still a possibility of being someone else!
"Not to bring on the ire prematurely," he whispered, "but do you mind telling me what it is about this bed that you object to?"......."That's debateable," he disagreed. "This would be difficult on a couch."

"Don't be afraid," I murmered.
"We belong together."

I'm guessing she's reassuring Edward before their intimate moment, since Edward is worried that he'll do something wrong in the middle of intimacy.

"His arms were wrapped around me,
Holding me against him.... "
It felt like every nerve ending in my body was a live wire."
....yah, think about it 8)

and the "Forever" part is Edward giving in

She committed to Edward.

I think you said it... She choose Edward. The first chapter reiterates the fact that once she decides her mind is made up and she has decided on Edward.

I think you are right about the honeymoon too. But wouldnt it be shocking if he did hurt her while baking and was forced to change her right then. :shock:
