1) Regarding the “honeymoon”, did you expect the outcome to be different, that Bella would have been hurt much worse? Or less?
2) In terms of Edward’s reaction to hurting Bella during the night. . . Do you think he was justified in expressing his anxiety by “souring Bella’s mood?”
3) Apparently Edward’s extreme generosity is a learned behaviour. Do you think it is? And what is your opinion on that?
4) Edward confirmed that he will not make love to Bella until she is changed, did you expect he would falter in his promise to himself?
1)I did not think about the outcome of their night together until the day after. But, after reading it, I think Edward showed a lot of restraint with Bella - hats off to the man.
2)No. He ruined it for her and for me.
He should have listened to her when she said she felt so happy. Instead, he sulked and pouted and that 'killed her buzz'.I can understand his distaste in hurting her accidentally, but he went to extremes in his reaction - so Edward.
3)I think Carlise led by example and in turn this brought out a generous spirit in Edward. We learn things from our parents. This was a wonderful trait to have been given, so to speak.
4)Oh yea!! He could not resist his wife - period. He is only a healthly man..er vampire after all. They were perfect for each other and they both knew that. I thought that was cool.
