1. The chapter is entitled "confessions". What do you think the most meaningful confession on Bella's part, and what is the most meaningful confession on Edward's part?
"Isabella." He pronounced my full name carefully, then playfully ruffled my hair with his free hand. A
shock ran through my body at his casual touch. "Bella, I couldn't live with myself if I ever hurt you. You
don't know how it's tortured me." He looked down, ashamed again. "The thought of you, still, white,
cold… to never see you blush scarlet again, to never see that flash of intuition in your eyes when you see
through my pretenses… it would be unendurable." He lifted his glorious, agonized eyes to mine. "You are
the most important thing to me now. The most important thing to me ever."
Does it GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT?
"This is enough," I sighed, closing my eyes. That's it for Bella - whatever it is as long as they are together, she is at peace.
2. Edward tells Bella everything that he has been doing "off page" up until now. Most of these moments will be shown in "Midnight Sun." Which moment are you most looking forward to reading?
Oh I read them - and they were fantastic. Better than "Twilight". Since it's only 264 pages and not complete thus far my favorite (and it's a hard choice) is the car accident from Edward's perspective.
3. The subject of humanity and what it means to be truly human constantly comes up. How is the humanity of Bella and Edward best displayed in this chapter?
I think their humanity is best displayed in the wonder and discovery of each other. It's all so new to them both, to be able to experience the discovery of new emotions, new reactions, new depths of their feelings at the same time - that's an unbelievable experience that few ever can even imagine.
4. This is the chapter where we really see a romance blooming between Edward and Bella. What was the most romantic moment for you?
I love the humor in the romance between them. Their attraction and their emotion for each other is filled with such intensity that I so enjoyed the moments where they could laugh with each other. After Edward takes her running for the first time and he's so gentle with her when they reach the truck, their easy banter makes it easy to see that these two are perfect for each other.
