How would the story have progressed differently had Jacob assumed his role as Alpha right from the start?
I have to agree with Jazz Girl.
ButI think Jacob would have had to be in the clearing and with the pack the whole time, so the Fire & Ice chapter may have been a void.
He certainly would have told Bella about his new 'life style' because he does not want to lose her for any reason.
I am saying that because he gave the 'okay' to allow Edward to turn Bella without repercussions of a voided treaty and I think Jacob sometimes looks at the situation more deeply than just following what the original treaty dictates.
But on another note, there could have been a stronger possibility that he may have attacked the Cullens quicker because of his anger and jealousy of Edward's relationship with Bella and his immense hatred of the vampires. Remember I'm saying there could be NOT that it would be.
Hope I made sense.
