True.. bella probably was very worried. Now that I remember, Bell askes Edward if when he was in Denali if any of them liked him.

i think he can understand to a point... there might be a little that he could not completly comprehend (sp), but i think he understands it mostly...

(if that answer makes any sence)

I think he has a pretty good idea from reading jacobs mind
But bella probably tries to cover alot of it up as she doesn't want to upset him

Because he went through a very similar thing.
And when he came back he thought Bella had moved on - mega pain.

i think edward does understand otherwise he wouldnt want to leave her. bella talked about how edward would not leave her side for weeks after he came back. she said she watched his eyes grow darker until she finally made him go when emmett and jasper wanted to go. edward also has seen bella through jake's eyes and maybe even sam's eyes. he just does a very good job at covering it up. he has many years of practice but sometimes he lets his guard down in eclipse when jacob comes to the school.


Ashley:We will totally kick arse!
Jackson:I dont know....they've got brooms. rotf!

Jasper chuckled, shaking his head. "You truly are one frightening little monster."

I think he understands completely. When he came back, he was truely scared that she wouldn't love him anymore. He asks her if he hurt her too much to even forgive. Even if he did get it then, when he saw the pictures in Jacob's mind, he realized.

He also knows how much pain he will cause her in the future. He doesn't want her to have to give everything up for him. When he stays with her while she's crying in Eclipse, he wondered if Jacob would be better.

*so_jealous_of_bella* wrote:so my personal oppinion is that edward does not understand. at least not fully.

i think he gets that he hurt her, but he doesn't know the extent of that. i think the first wave of recognition hit him when bella and him were walking to his house. when she said that he leaving her was worse than being killed, i think it hit him. i think he got "oh, i really hurt her."

but still, i don't know if he really understands how much pain he caused when he left. i think it is partly bella's fault, though. she didn't get angry when he came back, so i think he didn't see exactly how bad he hurt her.

but i would be letting him know, soon, if i were bella. because if it ever crossed edwards mind to leave again, that might stop him knowing that it would hurt bella more than him being there.

so basically, i think edward needs to understand the extent of damage bella now has, so he doesn't take it for granted. but bella needs to help.
I totally agree.....I think that Jacob may be able to help Edward understand just how much pain Bella was in because Bella didnt try to hide anything from Jacob and Jacob saw how much damage was done :)

I think that Edward would understand if Bella let him know the full extent of what she was feeling. Edward tells her some of his pain, but Bella doesn't really say much because she knows it hurts him. Why purposely hurt someone who loves you when it isn't necessary?

I also think that the two of them were feeling equal pains.
Bella, on one hand, thinks Edward doesn't love her and stuff like that.
Edward, on the other hand, knows that he loves her, but cannot be with her for his reasons. He also has the fear of Bella falling in love with someone else, or even something happening to Bella. The pain really went both ways.

I think Edward understands Bella's pain. I think they both felt the same hurt, but Bella delt with the pain better. Edward knows he hurt her badly and sees what she went through through Jacob's memories and probably other's memories like... Charlie, Mike, anyone at school... but we know that Jacob showed Edward from Eclipse when they meet at school. We also know that Edward feels horrible about doing it to Bella.

I think Edward understands Bella's pain to an extent. He was going through the same misery at being separated, but Bella was the one who thought Edward had moved on, that he didn't love her anymore and was never coming back. Just my opinion.
