Bella and Jasper

Post by Firewind »

This thought occured to me just a little while ago...Jasper never talked to Bella for the rest of New Moon after he nearly attacked her. Did he ever apologize for what he did? I know it wasn't his fault, but I would think he'd feel obligated to at least say sorry.

I absolutely agree! I like Jasper okay, but I am a bit upset at him. I know it's hard for him to control himself, but the least he could have done is apologize to Bella. He didn't even look at her at the airport in the end of New Moon. Sure Alice was there and they love each other. That should not stop him from acknowleding what happened.
It was a crippling thing, this sensation that a huge hole had been punched through my chest, excising my most vital organs and leaving ragged, unhealed gashes around the edges that continued to throb and bleed despite the passage of time.

I think he's really embarassed by the whole episode. I mean, it was enough for the whole Cullen clan to get up and move. The vampire thing is still relatively new to him compared with the others. But I'm sure we'll find out more about his character in Eclipse and maybe he'll have apologized then.

I think he's more the strong, silent type .. didn't Alice or Edward or Carlisle or SOMEONE apologise for him anyway?

Maybe he was trying to control himself? Remember how Edward felt in that first Biology lesson, and that was after 75 years of abstinence. He could have been tired, hungry, whatever. Maybe Stephanie meant to come back to it and forgot about it. Hopefully Eclipse will reveal all - I really think Bella & Jasper would get on very well if it wasn't for the whole blood lust thing.

I have trouble with coherence. Please bear with me.

I think it's kind of . . . understood. In "Stitches" Carlise uses Jasper as a lure to get tortured Edward out of the room, telling him that Jasper must be feeling bad. And Bella asks Edward to tell Jasper that she's not upset with him; that she understands. I think Bella just understands that he doesn't mean her any (malicious) harm. He just has his control issues. Too bad he can't use his talent on himself.

Thats what I think. Bella knew what she was getting into at some extent when she entered a house full of vampires.

We do know that in Eclipse he does talk to Bella because we know that we're going to find out more about him.

Yeah, he couldn't apologize right away because she was still bleeding. And then Alice drags him away the day after or something like that, so he really couldn't apologize then. As for the airport, he probably figured that Bella just wanted to be with Edward.

Wel after the party, directly after any ways, he couldn't have apologized because he was still trying to control himself. But he didn't apologize when they got back, even at the little roundt able (as I like to call it) when they voted. I never really realized it. Jasper... you should apologize...

We don't know that Jasper didn't apologize. From the time of the vote and Jacob's returning the motorcycle there was at least a couple of weeks. The book is vague on exactly how much time passed. At any rate, Bella and Jasper could have easily have spoken during this time. The conversation was just not recorded. The conversation would not be critical to the story because Bella has clearly forgiven Jasper.
