Some say the world will end in fire,
Somw say in ice.
From what i've tasted of desire,
I hold with those who favour fire.
But it had to perish twice,
I think i know enough of hate,
To say that for destruction ice,
Is also great,
And would suffice.
I love it! It basically means that between Bella and Edward there is fire; Love. Between Edward and Jacob there is ice; Hate. And between Bella and Jacob there it a pool of hot water; a bit of both!
Interesting - I thought it was refering to the fact that Edward is col, like Ice and Jacob is Fire, not their realationships. Something along the lines of fvouring fire and perishing twice to do with the fact that Bella and Jacobs realationship never really got started and that their friendship nearly perished (maybe more than twice actually)1. What do you think about the honesty the boys show each other?
Absolutly LOVED it! Really really beautiful, touching and downright funny!2. Are you surprised to see Edward admitting his jealousy and showing less patience?
umm I dont think I was surprised. Imagine how that must be for him - watching another man, a man who is in love with his soulmate non the less so physically close to her, enjoying it and Edward knowing he cant be too upset because he is practically saving her life. Also he knows how much Bella cares for Jacob...it makes sense for him to be jealous and it was good for him to let it out too I think.3. How did you feel about Edward's four options regarding Bella?
Why (well we know why but still) but given two of the other options (leaving her and hurting her or staying with her till shes old and dies) did he not want to turn her into a vampire earlier??? 4. What surprised you most about the conversation they had?
The complete honesty they shared, but most of all the fact that they were then prepared to fight SO dirty the next day and forget how close to being close they had become. Although it did lay the foundations for their future realationship I think.PS This was one of my favourite chapters of the entire series!
