1. What were your feelings while reading this chapter? Was Bella’s transformation what you expected, how so?
I thought it was really intense and I was really impatient for her to wake up. I was upset with Alice and Edward for not giving any time refference. It was as I expected it to be, painfull and intense.
2. It seems the pain of the transition cannot be lessened. Knowing this, would you be willing to undergo this transition? If Bella had known what the morphine would do, would she have still undergone the transition using the morphine?
Of course Bella would have done it with the morphine, just for Edward's sake. And also, she couldn't grasp how painfull it would be so she wouldn't think twice about it.
If I was in Bella shoes I would have done it. To be with my immortal boyfriend and daughter forever. I think that is worth the pain. And also, I don't think I can even imagine the pain. I would still underestimate it, and once I would feel it, it would be to late.
3. Once this is over, do you think Bella will ever tell Edward about the morphine, her transition? How do you think Edward would have reacted if Bella had cried out?
No way, she won't tell him. Knowing Edward, he probably would be apologizing for the rest of his existence.She would want him to have some peace of mind. He already blames himself for so many things, If he would know, it would take him 2000 years of so to be really happy again.
4. Why do you feel Edward kept the baby from the room when Bella awakes?
For the safety of course. He didn't know at first about Bella's super self-control, he wouldn't risk the life of his daughter.It was better to wait.
