1. Bella called and called Jacob to try to find out what was wrong. Do you think it was the right thing for him to try to just ignore her and move on? Or do you think Jacob should have tried to get a message to her sooner?
I think he probably thought it was a good idea, and Billy was probably encouraging him to keep everything a secret. However, Jake and Bella were pretty good friends, so I would think a phone call saying he was better and that he was swamped with school or something would have been a good idea. He could have give her any reason in the world that he couldn't hang out instead of just ignoring her.
2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Did you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?
I liked the shorter hair better, I'm not a fan of long hair on guys. No, I didn't think he was frightening. More intense definetly, but not frightening. As I said, I do think he had her best interest at heart, he was just going about it wrong.
3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?
She didn't mean to lead him on, that was never her intension. But, yes I think she was giving him false hope lol. Billy was just using that as an excuse to keep Bella away when he talked to Charlie though.
4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?
Definetly thought it was Victoria or someone "working" for her.
