Wouldnt people start to be suspicious of the Cullens?

Post by xiLOVEtheCullensx »

In Twilight, Charlie talks about how the Cullens go camping often. And that is supposed to explain why they are absent all the time. But wouldnt people begin to get suspicous? I mean, you can't exactly go camping in the middle of winter when there is 3 feet of snow. And speaking of the winter, how do they hunt during the winter? All the animals would be in hibernation... hmmm...

There are lots of people who go camping and hunting during the winter. There are also many animals who do not hibernate during the winter.

They wouldn't have to tell anyone they were going, particularly if they simply went away for the weekend or cut classes - students tend to do that for any number of reasons. It's not like they have any close friends who'd check up on them or want to hang out.

I don't think Forks is under snow the entire winter (being in the PNW, I suspect is rains more than it snows) - but if it were, I'd think "snow days" (i.e., when everything shuts down due to the city being incapacitated due to too much snow) would make it even easier for the Cullens to disappear to go hunting.

Or perhaps they'd hunt racoons - keep down their population. :wink:

People are suspicious...
*fetches book*
"Just because they're newcomers, people have to talk." TW37 - I assume that the talk has evolved into that subject.

"The hospital welcomed Carlisle back with eaer arms, not even bothering to conceal their delight that Esme had found life in LA so little to her liking." NM 548
"Dr. Cullen is a brilliant surgeon..we're lucky to have him...he's an asset to the community." TW36
I think people love Carlisle so much they just don't care about the family. And they're sure to make their trips believeable- I don't think Charlie is stupid, he's cheif of police and he falls for the camping stories.
Thou shalt think for yourselves.

I'm sure the community turns a blind eye towards them since Carlisle is such an important person to the community. Not to mention, three feet of snow? Then all Carlisle would have to say is that he couldn't get his car started, or he couldn't drive to work and such.

Pleanty of people go camping when it's snowing out. And most of the time when it's snowing, it's going to be cloudy, so that's not much of a problem either. And food? Pleanty of animals don't hybernate during the winter.
This is what I'm listening to...

i truly don't think anyone would get suspicious(sp) b/c well if they went camping in the winter couldn't they just go some place warm like florida or texas. also i think people do love the cullens so much that it really wouldn't be weird if they were gone for a week. couldn;t they hae to leave possibly also b/c of esme or carlisles job. that could be another opition. :D
bye.

Um I think that I read somewhere that
people think that it is sweet that they have a tradition of going camping every week.

And many kids skip school. Lots of them tried in my school on the 15th last month. they were going to have a party. but the school system calls home to notify if the kid isnt in school in my area. Im glad i wasnt invited!

Err off topic! Sorry lolz

yes. and i believe that people are a little suspicious. but then theres this beautiful young doctor that adopted all these teenagers... so i suppose that they give Carlisle a little break because he's such a good "person"
