1. What was your reaction when you realized that Alice had sketched Bella's house in Phoenix?I can't say I was entirely shocked, because I knew that he'd be heading for Bella in some way, that he was bound to find her, and so for that I was relieved that he went to her house, because she wasn't there. I did feel a sense of dread though, because there was bound to be a reason for him going there that tied Bella to going there.
2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.
Because she knows that they'd stop her. She doesn't believe that they could have found a way to outsmart James, and if they knew, he'd know, and that wouldn't be good news for Renee.
3. Bella is able to resist Jasper's calming power. Do you think she actually successfully resisted, or that he gave up when she broke contact?
I think he gave up when she broke contact. He has a conscience over his gift, and he wouldn't want to force it on Bella when she doesn't want it. Not to that degree.
'Out of nowhere, she was perched on Jasper's back, her lips at his neck.
Jasper chuckled, shaking his head. "You truly are one frightening little monster."' ~APPC~
