When I first started BD, I really hated Leah. Really really
hated her. After finishing Eclipse, I was distraught, what with Jacob being so depressed and running away (
). Her being so mean to him just pushed me over the edge
But after a while, I started to like her and sympathize her. I never really thought that Jacob and Leah would end up together, but I'll admit I was getting really scared towards the end of Jacobs book
I do like the fact that they can be friends though. Leah really needed one, and Jacob is perfect. She's still grieving over Sam, and is just generally really mucked up. Jacob was there for Bella when she was at her worst, and helped her. I think he could do the same for Leah.
