This may not count as nerve-wracking...but I vividly remember my heart skipping a few beats in painful, dragging, dire anticipation....

In BD, at the beginning of the honeymoon, when Bella is psyching herself out and finally gets the guts to go outside and meet Edward in the water...and she sees the remainder of his clothes fluttering in the trees.... :shock:

I was thinking/freaking.....OMG...THIS IS IT. FINALLY! :o

So true! It was nerve-wracking, because I felt the same nerves as Bella did on my wedding night, and it was heart-stopping because I was thinking "here it is!!" It was kind of like the morning after Christmas, a let-down... but, I liked the "looking back on it" aspect. I'm sure Bella's thoughts would have been way tooooo incoherent if it were written "in the moment." I mean, goodness, he takes her breath away just during a passionate kiss! :oops:

The first one I thought of was the fight scene between Victoria and Edward at the end of Eclipse. Even though I knew Bella and Edward would live (if one died, the other would follow, hence no 4th book), I was worried Seth would get hurt, or Victoria would get away, or a Cullen or wolf would die. That was the one time I cursed Stephenie's amazing attention to detail...
These volent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume.

For me it was probably in New Moon when Bella realised why Edward had gone to Volterra.

It always hurts to think that you aren't good enough for someone and then for them to actually vocalize the thought can crush a person. I think Edward leaving is one of the most heart stopping moments in the series...

I'm sure I'll post more later!


It´s like you read my mind. I literally died when I read this part. To me it´s definitly one of the most nerve-wracking moments in the whole Twilight Saga.

I seriously cried when Edward left.I never cry,not even when family members die or anything like that,so when a fictional vampire leaving his fictional sweetheart makes you break down you know theres something wrong with you!Seriously,Edward broke my heart too when I read that.

I have experienced a moment like this in every book! In Twilight, it would be the ballet studio. Wow. I'm really looking forward to seeing that in the movie, because Bella just passes out and we miss a lot of it; it should be interesting to see what happened. The whole time I was mentally screaming "Edward! Where are you! Swoop in and save her already!" In Eclipse it would be the final battle between Victoria and Edward. I was on the edge of my seat. Breaking Dawn would be the birth scene. That was intense. Words cannot describe it. I was so anxious. New Moon had two for me. First was the Edward in Volterra scene. I was so worried and my heart stopped a few times I think. It was so suspenseful and intense: would Bella make it in time? I love moments like these, because I completely forgot about Eclipse and that Edward would HAVE to be there. I was just so freaked out. And then relieved when I found out they were ok. Phew. ;)
But I think the biggest one would be the dreaded Chapter 3 of New Moon. I don't need to state what happened there. And it wasn't heart stopping because it was extremely suspenseful, actually it was more heart breaking. I did NOT see that coming and was literally crying. :cry: I think my heart stopped mainly because I couldn't believe this was actually happening. But I'm sure I'm not the only who felt absolutely crushed. But then Edward came back and I was very happy! :D
