"Carlisle wanted to lead the tracker as far north as possible, wait for him to get close, and then turn and ambush him. Esme and Rosalie were supposed to head west as long as they could keep the female behind them. If she turned around, they were to head back to Forks and keep an eye on your dad. ...
I was not as familiar with the treaty line as the rest of them, but I could smell the hint of wolf in the breeze blowing from the east. Edward and Carlisle slowed a little out of habit, and I could see their heads sweep from side to side, waiting for the trail to turn.
The taxi continued theough the swarming crowds until they thinned somewhat, and we appeared to be nearing the extreme western edge of the city, heading into the ocean.

After all, a pawn only moves one space at a time (two spaces from the starting position, yes), can only capture diagonally, and are quite vulnerable being up front. Queens on the other hand can move in any straight line, any number of spaces, can capture in any straight line, and are usually heavily protected by other pieces. Not to mention the fact that a pawn, assuming it survives long enough to make it to the other side of the board, can be "promoted" to another piece- and a queen usually gives you the most options.
It is this aspect of the pieces that Stephenie Meyer referred to when describing the cover of BD.
First I cleaned the already tidy rooms, and then when Charlie was up I made him pancakes...He scowled into his cereal bowl and muttered the words "monkey suit" under his breath.
I'll more fully sketch out the internal workings of Billy, Quil Sr., and Samuel Sr. and see whose character supports this backstory best.
