They both keep to themselves and do not feel the need to have small talk.

He probably didn't want to ask the personal questions first.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
Billy is concerned for the amount of time Bella spends with Edward, and Jacob is trying to get over his feelings about her.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
Bella and Charlie are alike in a lot of ways, they are both very solitary people and very shy, they like to spend time by themselves and are happy to be alone when they get the chance. they both dont like beign the center of attention and are happy without any attention.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
he saved them for the next day because they are the more personal intrusive questions and he wanted to get her warmed up for them, so as the days progressed the questions got more intense.
4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
Edward wrote the words "Be Safe" because he didnt want anything to happen to Bella and he was scared that she woudl hurt herself while he was away and he wanted Bella to be careful.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
They like her. They've known her for a while and they want her to be ok. They also think of Charlie.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
They don't like attention. They're used to take care of themselves.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
Because Bella could've been more open the next day now that she has answered questions about her different likes.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
To remind her that she's a magnet for accidents and he doesn't want to be worried about her and see her hurt.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
I think Billy is concerned and Jacob is sad that she has a boyfriend.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
They are alike in the fact that they don't mind spending time by themselves. They are both mature, and I feel like that alone time is how you really get to think about life and everything.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
Those are more intimate questions and also they are more private so he probably wanted to work his way to them.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
Because he knows that she is a danger magnet and that she should be reminded.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
-i think billy's nervous for bella, because he believes in the ledgends of the vampires and he doesnt want her to get hurt. jacobs just jacob, theres not much else to say about him.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind being alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
-charlie and bella are alike in many ways, theyre both shy and quiet and dont mind comfortable silences. theyre both bad dancers too haha.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
-probably because those types of question are more personal and are sometimes harder to answer for some people. edward was probably trying to let bella feel more comfortable around him by asking those questions another day.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
-because he was looking out for bella (: he doesnt want something bad to her.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?

Billy is very concerned about Bella's safety and wishes her to stay away from Edward and the rest of the Cullens. Jake still has a soft spot for her, though he's upset that she is dating someone.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?

Well, Bella certainitly isn't like Renee. But she and Charlie ar eboth quiet and don't mind being alone.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?

Those questions are more personal than just asking her about her favorite color and books and stuff. Thats more small talk. Now, they are much more comfotable together and he doesn't feel like he's being rude asking more personal things.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".

Well, this is bella we're talking about. She needs to be as safe as she can get, though she'll still be able to find something to trip on even if its a piece of dust. And its just another small thing to show how much her cared about her.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
Jacob so obviously has a "crush" on her at this time. And Billy seems to be concerned for her because she as been spending time with Edward.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
In every way that the book states, they both are clumsy, not good at expressing their feelings (Bella seems to overcome this one pretty quickly though), and in both of their abilities to be content with solitude.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
They are much more personal and I think that he was almost to scared to ask her or to even know the answers to them.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
This is one of my favorite lines from the entire series! He wrote it because he worries about her so much and he really wants her to "Be Safe."

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
Billy wants her to be cautious. I mean, she is hanging out with his mortal enemy. Jacob is a little jealous, I think. :)

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
They both like to be alone. Plus, they feel that they don't have to talk every second so there isn't any dead noise. Also, they both can't really express their feelings towards each other.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
I really don't know. Maybe he was just afraid to hear the answers. And maybe he just forgot or didn't have enough time to ask it the day before.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
Bella is accident prone. He doesn't want her to be hurt, ever, but especially for tomorrow.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?I think Billy sees Bella as family. He has been friends with Charlie for a very long time and he cares for Bella the way an uncle would I think. Jacob clearly likes Bella, and would love to be more than a friend but for the time being he knows his chances are slim.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?Oh well they are both introverts to begin with. They are quiet, honest and caring people. They dont need to tell each other I love you to know that they do.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
The first day of questions he wanted to know her personality, likes and dislikes. Once that was out of the way he could ask about other people. The priority was to get to know her.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
*sigh* well..Bella is a magnet for danger LOL.
