Well I think it's both becasue well Carlile had to take care of other wounds but also had the intetion of making Edward realize how strong he was. I was really pround of Edward on that moment :P

Hmm. I never thought of it that way. It's an interesting point though. I hope that Edward is the one to change her... and he sees that too.

I never thought of that before, but now that you mention it, it does make sense. I don't think Carlisle was actually thinking of changing Bella in the future though, just proving to Edward that he is strong enough to resist temptation and that Bella is safe with him.

Testing Edward definitly seems like a Carlisle thing to do. But I'm not sure if Carlisle was thinking about something like that at that particular moment because the situation was so desparate. I think that Carlisle wsa just busy with the stitches, but he needed someone to suck out the venom and Edward loves Bella too much to harm her so he would be able to control himself.

I was thinking about kind of the same thing the other day, when I had just read Twilight and it was the exact same scene. I was wondering why didn't Carlisle and Edward just switch but then I thought that Carlisle didn't want to suck human blood because he never had and that it could ruin his great "record" on never drinking. Now that I think about it, it seems pretty stupid because Carlisle is a very selfless person and probably knew that Edward could do it and maybe it was practice, I like that theory!

In a way...I believe Carlisle was testing Edward but it a different sense...it wasn't a test. Carlisle knew Edward could do it. If he didn't he wouldn't have taken the risk with Bella's life. But because I believe that Carlisle had no doubt that Edward could do it that it wasn't a test.
He was giving Edward a choice. He wanted Edward to do it because it was his decision... his decision on Bella's morality. That's what Carlisle was doing...he was letting Edward choose...and he decided that he wanted her to stay human.

This makes total sense. I like that it's Edward's choice. And Carlisle knew he could do it all along. He just had to show Edward that he could do it.
