sorry that was more like a bunch of questions than an answer.
Well, I don't think it's ever answered why her mind is so private. There's been some answers from SM and I don't understand any of them. And also if the question I think is correct, if she didn't move to Forks she wouldn't have met Edward or Jacob.
