1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
I think that Jake is so much more accepting of Bella. He doesn’t care about Edward Cullen. All he cares about is the Volvo. Billy is concerned for Bella and Charlie. He knows and believes what the Cullens are, and he is worried about what would happen if for some reason, one of the Cullens lost control.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
Yes, I saw this in the book, but once she makes up her mind, she commits. The hardest part about making a decision is sticking to it. They also can sit there and not feel the need to have a conversation. They are very quiet and gentle people.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
I think it comes from the questions he asked before. He wanted to know about books and music to get into her personality. Now that he knew about her personality, he wanted to know how these things showed in her relationships with friends, family, and significant others if there had been some of them.

4. Why do you think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
He knows that Bella has the ability to get into some sort of trouble. He wants to remind her to not intentionally put herself in danger. The last thing he needs is to find out she did something and have to come rushing home. I mean seriously, how do you think he would react if Carlisle called him saying “yea, Bella’s in the hospital because she tripped over a root in the woods by the house.” He’d freak.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
*brain blank* Duurr, omg I don't remember what I thought! >w<
probably too many things at once!


2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
They are both introverts. Funny this was asked, because I accidentaly answered this question on an chapter I did just before this one XD.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
He was probably trying not to be so pushy. Asking her about her personal life on the first round would have come off wrong, and its impolite =P. He needed a little bit of trust to build up between them.

4. Why do you think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
At the time I thought he was worried about other vampires or the werewolves. Once again senseing danger all around -_-; I did that a lot in this book.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella? Jacob likes her. He's a little disappointed that's she's dating but I don;t think he cares that it is Edward. Billy is scared to death for her. He doesn't realize she knows what she's getting into at this point

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind being alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike? Don't like to share there feelings but love very deeply. Loyal and very protective of the people they love. Likes to be quite doesn't need constant chatter, doesn't mind being alone.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning? He wanted to know about her first

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe". Because he's genuinely scared a black hole is going to come swallow her up. I think he knows at this point that he couldn't live without her.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?I think that Jacob really likes Bella. As for Billy, I think he is just worried about her hanging out with Edward.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike? They both are uncomfortable sharing their feelings, they truly care about their loved ones, and like to be alone.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?He wanted to know the easier questions first. They might have helped him understand the deeper ones later. And I think he wanted to know as much about her as possible, the other questions would have told him about other people.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe". He will be away not watching her, and if something happened while he was away, I don't think he would forgive himself. BTW this is one of my favorite parts of this book, the simple note, "Be Safe" It just says so much with so little.

they both dont say a lot unless asked... i dont know, they just seem like the perfect daughter and dad!

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
maybe he wanted to start out with something easy and ease into the other ones about relationships.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
if i remember right..(because i've only read the book twice. new moon and eclipse and a different story though :lol:) this is after he tells he to stay out of the woods, so maybe a reminder of her promise.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
Billy's feelings towards her are like a niece or something like it. Jacob obviously has a crush on her.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
The being alone thing. Being quiet, and a little shy.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
Because he first wanted to know things about her, her likes, dislikes, etc. Easier questions.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
Because he was anxious about not being close to her. And we all know Bella is a magnet for trouble, so I understand his nervousness.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
I think they do care a lot for Bella. Jacob in more of a i really really like you way, and Billy in a protective/family friend way.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
They are similar because they both are happy with silence.. not feeling a need to say everything. They also can handle being by themselves.. they're not very big people persons. I also think they both are people who once they make their minds up, that's what they stick to.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
I think the first day he wanted to know all the basic, simple questions about her. Make it easier for her to open up right away.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
Because he really wants her to BE SAFE! lol He's always worried about her getting hurt, so when he's away he's afaid something might happen to her. by the way I think this was sooooooooo sweet.

What.. no questions about the hike or entering the forest? lol

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
I think Jacob is already in love here. And Billy is worried, because he knows the Cullens are vampires.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind beign alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
Being awkward, feeling a bit 'off' in the world.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
First he wanted to get to know her thoughts, now he wants to know about her past.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
Because he won't be there to take care of her and he knows she could get into danger.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
Jacob really likes her and Billy is concerned for her because she has started to hang out with the Vampys.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind being alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
They both know how to take care of themselves when alone. They both seem pretty well reserved and think of others over themselves first. They are comfortable without the need for a conversation.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
To get all the easy to answer questions out of the way and make her more comfortable with answering them. If he started these questions off right off the bat, Bella would've been less responsive with them because they were still in the 'getting to know each other better' stage and everything was still needing to sink in.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
The fact that she is a danger magnet makes the note all more hilarious to me. I'm sure Edward figured that since he won't be around to stop a van from crushing her, maybe making her more aware and cautious of what she does while he is gone will help them both in the end.

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella?
Billy is totally concerned for her 'choices in friends' being the vampires/Cullen's. Jacob I think fell 'in love at first site' with her, or what he thought was love at first site.

2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she doesn't mind begin alone. She further adds that she's a lot like Charlie. In what ways do you see them as being alike?
They are quiet, confident in themselves and like being alone as it affords them time to think & contemplate things.

3. Edward's questions continue and today he asks Bella about people: family and boyfriends. Why did he save those questions for the second day of questioning?
To help Bella feel more at ease with him and maybe because he didn't want to know these first as the other questions might have meant more to him than these. After all, he's over 100, maybe he could tell she was inexperienced with boys and even devoted to family by her previous actions.

4. Why do yo think Edward wrote the words "Be Safe".
To make her more aware of her vulnerability and his not being close by.
