1. We learn quite a bit about the physiology of vampires in this chapter as Edward tells Carlisle's story. Which the most surprising thing you discovered - that they didn't need to breathe, that Carlisle tried to starve himself, or that they are very difficult to kill? That Carlisle tried to starve himself.
2. How did you feel about Edward's confession that he drank from humans for a short period of time? Were you surprised? Or were you more like Bella in thinking that it seemed reasonable? What do you think of his choice to kill only "bad" humans? I was not surprised by Edward's confession that he drank from humans for a short period of time. I think it is fairly reasonable to believe that not all vampires had the willpower that Carlisle had.
I think that his choice to only kill bad humans was a good one really, if it had to be a human, why not feed off criminals and murderers.
3. We get our first peek into Edward's room, which isn't really a bed room since it has no bed. Given the interest most fans have in all things romantic where these vampires are concerned, how long do you think it will take Edward to actually get a bed...if he ever gets one at all? Snigger...you know I had to ask! I don't think it will take Edward very long at all to get a bed, I mean eventually Bella will probably stay over and he would probably want her to be comfortable.
4. Throughout the chapter, Edward is much MUCH more himself. He is very open with Bella and seems very comfortable around her. I understand that this is the day after their time in the meadow, but what do you think specfially changed between them that allows Edward to be so free all of a sudden? I think when he showed Bella what he looked like in the sun, and she didn't shy away from him, I think that is what allowed Edward to feel like he could be free with her. She didn't pass judgement and she wasn't afraid.
