1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?

That Bella could do anything when it came to Edward...but her clumsiness would definatly stand in the way.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?

I thought that Edward brought her there, and I thought they were in Paris...mainly because I looked at the chapter titles adn one of them was Paris...but I didn't link it to romeo and juliet until i read the chapter.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?

Victoria was waiting to get her if she didn't reach Edward in time.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?

Save...no. Get to...yes.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?

No...she would focus hard enough not to.
"Before you, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars - points of light and reason...and then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything."

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?

I thought that it was weird, but very intriguing. What was she running to save? Or, more importantly, WHERE WAS EDWARD?!?!?! If only I knew...

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?

I was so out of it when I started this, that I had no idea. I was incredibly curious about what the scene was, and since I knew it would probably be at the end of the book, I just wanted to hurry and get it read.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?

I thought that it was vampire, and I was wondering why the vampires weren't eating her already.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?

No. I thought that it might be something along those lines, but I had no idea that it really was along the lines it was.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?

He he he. Yes. Maybe not sprawling all over the ground, but at least a tumble. I mean, it is Bella we're talking about here!

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?

i don't remember... i just wanted to know what was going to happen that i didn't think about it too much.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?

well it wasn't in forks or anywhere too nearby but i didn't think italy. i figured she was in danger - hence the change of scenes.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?

a vampire was waiting to kill them both but i didn't know why or even think there would be more than one...

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?

yes. who else would have her so reckless to not care if she lived if she failed?

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?

i thought there was too much of a chance and i didn't want her to fail by falling. the whole time i was just hoping she would get to where she was running in time!

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?
Really, I had no idea where they were, because it seemed like a weird place, with the clock tower and whatnot. I figured that Bella was running to save Edward, since he's the only thing I know of that is more precious than life to her. I also figured that much like Twilight, the actual scene where this happened was going to be close to the end.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I had no idea where she was, but I assumed that saving Edward was what brought her there, as Alice seems to have brought her, with no one else.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?
Obviously vampires, but beyond that, I had no idea. I wondered briefly if it was maybe Victoria and Laurent back again, but I wasn't entirely sure.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
I knew that it was Edward very quickly, as he is the only thing that is "infinately more precious" than life to Bella.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
I thought it was a possibility, knowing her, but not if it prevented her from saving Edward.

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?

I was confused, because I really didn't know what was going on, but something was obvious: a bad thing was happening.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?

I didn't know where she was, but I knew that the place wasn't Forks or neither place we met before.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?

To some enemies, some other vampires.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?

No, I didn't. I just knew that, after reading the third chapter, the Cullens were going to appear again.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?

No, no in such a situation.

1) I can't excactly remember, I guess thrill on what was happening...

2) Edward was definetely in trouble, she was coming to the rescue... as to where they were... I didn't really care :D

3) Vampires, though I couldn't figure out why...

4) Certainly! Who else would be more important than her own life?

5) No, she was far too determined to reach him to allow herself to fall. She was too preocupied with her lack of speed...

----------------------------------

if this is where edward was trying to kill himself by walking into the sun and letting the 2 watchfull eyes kill him then read the following..

I dont like saying this but this part of the story actuallty had me swelling up inside. When she finally saw him, then ran to him as fast as she could, and to say what he said when she slammed into the brick wall we know as edward. A view tears found there way to the surface. I quickly Dispossed of them because I dont like to cry about things because of the man hood thing i guess and because i dont like emotions... But i really got carried away with that part.

I thought Bella was running away from something Bloodthirsty, which answers most of the questions.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?

It mentioned that the Cullens had "moved to L.A." and I thought Bella went to find them.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?

Another vampire wanting to kill her.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?

Nope. I thought she was running away from the vampire that wanted to kill her.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?

No, that didn't actually occur to me...
