1. Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood?
With regards to my own blood, yes....I feel faint if i cut my finger, and usually have to sit down..with the color of my face more like the vampires
. But I'm usually OK around the blood of others, I manage to help people when they are bleeding.2. Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endanger her?
Not at all. I just thought that it was sweet that he cared so much for her. I thought that since the Cullens have chosen to live around humans, going to high school and Carlisle even working as a doctor, that they must have a very strong control of their instincts.3. Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment?
I agree, like I have said elsewhere in this forum. Bella is more mature than her age.4. What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?
I think it all started in ch 4 with him asking her to go to Seattle with him. He seemed to have given up trying to do what he saw as the right thing, and just take some chances. He seemed to be in a bit better mood in this chapter (at least trying to be), talked and asked questions showing that he was clearly curious about Bella. He also showed that he cared for her, by carrying her to the nurses office, and insisting on driving her home.
