You're probably right.. I have a silly tendency to believe everyone's merciful lol
I have another question since I haven't been able to read thread #1 and I'm not close to reading the entire Thread #2... I'm sure it has been discussed but I just wanna check if I got it right by myself from reading the book: she gives whoever she touches the ability to read into her mind? I mean it couldn't be an active/aggresive power that forces things into people's minds or it wouldn't have worked on Bella.
I imagined it as a passive power, some sort of a welcoming or an invitation rather than an imposition. Edward's power in reverse because she doesn't read minds but allows minds to read hers. And Bella's power in reverse because she doesn't shield her mind from others but un-shields it to others?
She inherited her parents abilities and 'flipped them over' ... if that's the case, Stephenie Meyer IS
(just had an epiphany) lol!!
