1. Is it selfish of Bella to ask Edward to sit out the battle, knowing that it will increase the danger to the rest of his family?yes, i think. to put everyone else at risk just to know that edward would be safe, is really unfair to me.
2. When Bella asks Edward to sit out the battle for her, he looks into her eyes for a long time. She sees his eyes "tighten with some emotion I couldn't read" before he picks up the phone to call Alice and make the necessary arrangements. What do you think was going through his mind?i think that he was probably saying that bella is the only thing that matters and if thats whats going to keep her safe/make her happy then thats what her has to do. not that i approve.
3. Do Edward and Alice really believe the danger from the newborns is as trivial as they say, or are they trying to make Bella feel better?i definetly think that they were trying to make her feel better. if it was all over nothing, whats the big fuss?
4. Why do you think Bella feels it’s more like being with the old Jake -- “easy, effortless, as natural as breathing in and out” -- when he is in wolf form?im not sure. i guess there's some connection, deep down in both of them that makes it so free.
