So ladies welcome back, we're now onto week 6. How did we all survive? I only needed about half a box of tissues this time around. Before we get to the heavy, let's start with...
Bella gets sick.
Edward brings Jessica over, has sex with her in his room which Bella overhears and passes out.
Then Edward admits his feelings to her, okay okay so he said it in Italian and she didn't understand but in chapter 16 we find out what he said and now Jasper and Alice know.
Bella admits that it might be nice having a real friend, in Alice, for the first time but is unsure if it's a true friendship or not. What do you think?
This chapter is basically Edward making some bad decisions.
#1 inviting Jessica over
#2 leaving and getting trashed
We also get a little bit more about Edward's mom; directly from Edward himself. To Bella it is small but more than she knew before. It's like pulling teeth when it comes to the Cullen men talking about their mother.
What do you think of Bella quoting Schweitzer?
We also got to know more about her home life. What did you think of that?
One thing that I got from this chapter, besides a heart attack the first time I read it, was that for Bella the subject of their mother is not just a memory they avoid but is a subject to fear and run away from.. well when it comes to Carlisle anyway.
What do you think of Carlisle's "punishment"?
My first time through it I felt it. I was literally shaking and crying on the verge of a panic attack, it is probably the biggest reaction I have ever had to a story before. Did you make it through?
Well Bella endured it and was brought back to a place in her mind that she had started to escape from, being a slave.
What do you think of Edwards visit?
What did you think of him taking care of her afterwards?
What are the ramifications of the "punishment" on Bella? On Edward?
Let loose in the comments
We are going to try for reading 4 chapter this week, since so many of you are reading ahead anyway so for next week - Chapter 19-22. :)
