Edward's a supernatural being. Unlike normal people, he'd have no reason to worry about the presence of bears.

Get enough people together and there's bound to be someone there who doesn't like you. People like Lauren are just a part of life.
Alphie wrote:3. What was your first impression of Jacob Black? Did you like him? Did you get the sense that he was interested in Bella as more than a friend?
He seemed friendly, but not pushy like some of Bella's other friends. His interest in Bella was obvious, but he wasn't aggressive in pursuing it the way the others were. Maybe this was due to his age or inexperience around girls. Definitely a good guy though.
Alphie wrote:4. Why do you suppose Jacob didn't believe the legends of his people as readily as Bella did?
Jacob didn't believe them because he didn't witness anything supernatural firsthand the way that Bella did.

I think it makes it kind of obvious. Although, I would've expected them sooner (in future chapters).
