Personal Correspondance #2
The last paragraph of the second sentance.
Stephenie Meyer wrote:Several girls wanted to know if Edward would have a more difficult time being around Bella when she?s having her period. Answer: Yes, a little bit, but he would never say anything about it?much too much of a gentleman. And Bella would be way to embarrassed to ask. (It?s not the same as a cut, though. It?s sort of "dead" blood, if you get my meaning).
