When Bella made it pretty clear that she'd rather die than be away from Edward. For Edward, the sunlight thing and telling her about his first week while Bella was in Forks.

The constant need to by physically close to each other reminded me of the human part of their relationship.

I was moved by Bella's tracing of Edward's skin. It was a tender moment.

The most meaningful? Probably the fact that they love eachother. It's something they both wondered about the other person, and they finally got to hear the other person admit to it!

The subject of humanity and what is means to be truly human constantly comes up. How do is the humanity of Bella and Edward best displayed in this chapter?

Edward and Bella's Humanity is displayed in how close they are to eachother. And how they interact with eachother. Even though he is a vampire and she is a human, they are still able to control themselves and have a relationship. It is harder for him to do this, because he isnt human. (obviously)

That's a hard one. Either right before they kiss (the actually kiss was unexpected...or her reaction was atleast) or when he put his head on her cheast listening to her heart. Both of those moments are really sweet and imensly cute! This is definatley one of my favorite chapters because of these little romantic parts.

EDWARD CONFESSES HOW HARD IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING, THATS WHY HE LOOKED SO MAD AT BELLA WHEN THEY MET. BELLA ADMITS SHE HAS NEVER FALLEN IN LOVE LIKE SHE HAS FALLEN IN LOVE WITH EDWARD. I GUESS.

EDWARD IS REACTING TO BELLA LIKE HE DOES WHEN HE IS ALONE, THE INHUMAN POWERS AND SPEED AND STUFF. BELLA IS STARTLED AS SHE SHOULD BE, A BIT FRIGHTENED.

UM, NOT SURE. WHEN HE SAYS SHE IS HEROIN I GUESS. :)

i think the most meaningful confession in bella's part is when she says how much she cares about edward and i think the most meaningful confession in edward's part is the fact that dispite how dangerous he can be to bella he will defy his craving because he cares about bella so much and wants to be with her.

The subject of humanity and what is means to be truly human constantly comes up. How do is the humanity of Bella and Edward best displayed in this chapter?

edward and bella's humanity is displayed when they express their love for each other (in so many words) and how they are willing to risk everything to be together. they are each other's first love and their feelings are strong. they will do anything to be together. so many relationships like this are very human (romeo and juliet). all relationships have difficulties only for bella and edward it is a little more difficult than usual but they are still willing to try because they're in love.

i think the most romantic part was when edward tells bella that she is the most important thing to him ever and how bella answers that she would rather die than stay away from him.
"So much for being good at everything," he sighed.
"That's the problem." I was still dizzy. "You're too good. Far, far too good."

Bella told him how much she cared for him, and he admited the same to her.

Their love for eachother, and their discussions on jealousy.

I believe the most romantic is when he tells her not to move and he rests his cheek on her neck and her chest and listens to her heart and they sit together like that for hours. that part makes me smile.

I think that the most meaningful confession on Bella's part is that she is willing to risk her own life to be with Edward.
I concur with those of you who say that Edward's most meaningful confession is that he would hurt himself rather than succumb to his desire for Bella's blood, because he cares about her too much.

umm wow, this is really hard to put into words.
just the fact that what they think of eachother, and the need to be together are chiefly human emotions.

the whole atmosphere of there being no walls between them, and they're being completely open about their love for eachother for the whole time. and as Edward tells her, "it's too easy for me to be myself around you"

This was, by far, my favorite chapter in the entire book.

His hunger for her bloob and revelation of his ture nature as a vampire.Most of her lines are maeningfull in this chapter I can't pick one.

Having emotions is key to being human.Edward and Bella are in love such deep emotions aren't expressed by animals nor "monster" the way Edward says he is.

When after scaring Bella Edward says "Don't be afraid" Is such a romantic moment that brings out all his feelings.I think this is one of the most reavealing parts in twilight regarding Edward.And then when he hugs her for the first time and presseds his ear agains't her heart.*sighs*So romantic.Needles to say I cried my fair share this chapter.

For Edward, recounting his struggle in resisting the lure of Bella's blood, and how he has come to value her above all else. For Bella, it's admitting that she'd rather die than be away from him--very significant, I think.

The careful, yet tender touches are what reminded of Bella's humanity most. And despite everything he said and did to the contrary, Edward also seemed a lot more human in this chapter, but that's probably because he was giddy in love, and that's a distinctly human emotion.

The most romantic moment for me is just when they sat together, holding one another, Edward listening to her heartbeat. I don't think I have to add this was my favorite chapter, but I will. Swoon!

The chapter is entitled "confessions". What do you think the most meaningful confession on Bella's part, and what is the most meaningful confession on Edward's part? Well... On Edward's part... i think there are 3. the first is how he felt on that 1st day... thats meaningful because hes confessing how dangerous he is. the 2nd is how he felt when Bella was almost hit by Tyler's van. When he says "At the time, all I could think was, 'Not her'." Thats important because its shows how much he cared about her even before they became 'friends'. and then of course when he says, "I'd have fared better if i had exposed us all that first moment, then if now, here - with no witnesses and nothing to stop me - I were to hurt you." thats important because hes saying how much he cares for her now. Bella's most meaningful... I think is when Edward asks is being human is always like 'this' (being in love) and she says "No, never. Never before this." Its more simple, but shes confessing that she has never felt as strongly for anyone as she does Edward. WOW, that was a lot of typing.

The subject of humanity and what is means to be truly human. constantly comes up. How do is the humanity of Bella and Edward best displayed in this chapter? Bella's humanity... how shes so scared, but she stays with him, and how shes risking her life to be with him. I think thats human becuase shes being so brave, and confronting her fears. Edward...how even through all those years of vampirisim he can still hold Bella and have human instincts.



This is the chapter where we really see a romance blooming between Edward and Bella. What was the most romantic moment for you? when Edward confesses how he feels, and when theyre like stroking each other's faces, and holding each other. *sigh*
"Hmmm...," He mused as he quickly finished. "It seems I'm going to have to tamper with your memory."
