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?
i have mixed feelings about this also but i truly think that even though Bella doesnt realize that she has the ability to see or sence what is going to happen
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 he saw what losing him did to her the first time when she went into shock in the woods and he just couldnt bring himself to do that to her again
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 think they knew that they could handle things and that they may have been just a wee bit over confident the true threat was Victoria
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?
because he cant open his mouth and ruin it lol lets all admit that men can sometimes spoil the mood just by speaking
