1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?
I thought he was sick, but when he was acting strange I had no idea what was going on.
2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?
Nope, I knew It wasn't him. If Edward did come back at that point, I didn't picture him wandering around out there. I thought it might've been one of the other Cullens.. Lol xD
3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?
I knew it was probably Jacobs friends. When one looked at Bella, I thought it may have been Jacob.. or Sam. :S
4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?
Yeah, him in the woods, the wolf story he told bella, vampires vs werewolves, looking at bella in the woods , his funny behaviour, the Sam thing, kinda clicked then.
5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullens would come back?
Nope. Since Edward didn't seem to be around anywhere... I thought that he probably wouldn't know about Victoria. I expected the wolves to handle it.

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?
Not sure, and yes--I would be.

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?
No, I didn't think it was him. Was kinda expecting the bear build-up to lead to Emmett. Though when Laurent got scared and the bear came out, I was again expecting Emmett.

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?
Yes, I did suspect it to be Jacob.

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?
Yes.

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullens would come back?
I believe Alice would've forseen Victoria and would try convincing them to return.
I'll be your Edward if you'll be my Bellas

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?
At first, I thought that he really was sick. But when they started acting all strange and not allowing Bella to see him, I was sure there was something more going on.

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?
No, I wanted it to be Edward, but I was sure that it wasn't him. I had no idea who it would be actually.

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?
I wasn't scared, since somehow I knew that they were there to protect her. Since it seemed like the wolf knew her, I suspected that it might be Jacob.

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?
Yes I did.

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullens would come back?
I really wanted them to. But I wasn't sure that they would. I didn't know how much Alice would be watching out for Bella's future. I think she did, but I also think that she was very careful not to think about Bella when she was around Edward. But I hoped that Alice would see Bella in trouble, and that they would come back to help her.

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?
Not nearly as concerned. I figured that if Jake wanted to let her know what was going on then he would have told her.

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?
Hell no! I knew Edward wasn’t coming back.

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?
God damn wolves. I knew it was the pack from La Push as soon as I read it. All of the legends came back to haunt me.

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?
See above.

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullens would come back?
No. They didn’t know Victoria was hunting her. If she had a way to let the Cullens know that Victoria was after her, then yes I think they would have come back. Well most of them anyway. Maybe Jazz would have stayed away. Maybe no though.

I have a question regarding this chapter. Why wouldn't Alice have seen Laurent preparing to attack Bella? She saw Bella cliff-jump, so Alice was watching Bella. And while it would have been too late for Alice to have prevented Laurent from killing Bella, she could have called Edward, let him know that Bella was in danger from at least one vampire. Instead, she is truly surprised later in the book to learn that there have been any vampires in Forks during the Cullens' absence.

This chapter also completely confuses me regarding the Denali coven, and their refusal to assist the Cullens in "Eclipse." Laurent wasn't just thirsty when he attempted to attack Bella; he was in Forks in the first place because he had agreed to go on Victoria's behalf to help plot Bella's murder. There was nothing accidental in his intentions towards Bella; he intended her to die one way or another, and if Edward had been there at the time, Edward would have killed Laurent himself. How can the Denali sisters blame the werewolves for an act that a Cullen, possibly any Cullen but Rosalie or Jasper, would have also committed?

How can the Denali sisters blame the werewolves for an act that a Cullen, possibly any Cullen but Rosalie or Jasper, would have also committed?

For your first question: I always figured that Alice looked out for Bella from time to time. But I think she had also promised Edward that they really would leave Bella alone, so she probably wasn't on the look out very often. So I just assumed that she had missed it since she wasn't paying attention that much.

With the Denali, I agree with you. I believe that when they learned that not only was Laurent attempting to kill Bella, he was also there to help Victoria and he cheated on his diet, they should have understood that taking him out was necessary. And they should not even ask Carlisle for permission to attack the pack, knowing how much trouble that would coause for the Cullens. On the other hand, we also have to look at Irina. She loved Laurent, and she wanted to avenge his killers. She probably wasn't seeing straight enough to consider the circumstances. And also, Bella meant nothing to her at all, while Laurent did. Not fair or anything, but love can do that to you.
So, that's just the way I see it.

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?
I had no clue. I assumed he had the 24 hour bug.

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?
Of course... And then my hope shattered. :(

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?
We're not in Kansas anymore... I really thought WTF? She lives in a town with large hairy wolves and vampires? It was too crazy.

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?
I didn't put it together until the meadow.

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullens would come back?
The part in the book where Edwards leaves her left me in emotional shambles. hahaha. I flipped to the back just to see if I could see a sentence that would show he would come back around. I saw his name and then flipped back without reading anything. So I knew he was coming back, I just didn't realize that drama that would unfold to bring them all back together.
My life was like a moonless night. And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. There was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, everything went black. My eyes were blinded by the light. And there was no more reason for anything.

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?
At first I thought it may have been the stomach flu that everyone was having but after the suspicious not answering of phone and the number of days that passed I thought he was suffering from something worse, like the illness he mentioned his friend had gone through. The odd way Billy spoke to Bella on phone etc. fuelled this even more.

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?
I was hoping it would be! Wasnt expecting Laurent though

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?
I thought it was Sam and crew and then I pieced together that Jacob must be one of them now. I wondered about the one who looked at Bella and would have assuemed out of all 5 of them this one would be Jacob.

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?
Not up until I read the chapter I hadnt!

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullens would come back?
I hadnt thought about this, other than it must be scary for poor Bella knowing she is being hunted and with no one to help her. I made the assumption then that no, the Cullens and Edward wouldnt be back to help her.
