Anyway, we had quite a bit of talk about Alice and how exactly her powers work. We discussed Edward and his inability to read Bella’s mind and the itsy bitsy problemo of Edward and Bella having sex (uh-mm), and whether Edward is still a virgin or not. (I wonder how long it will take him to get a bed since, as we’ve been told, he only has a couch in his room—not that you can’t do it on the couch... Tee hee. ;P) At any rate, to continue our wonderful discussion, here’s our last batch of questions:
- Edward tells Bella very little about the process of becoming a vampire. Why do you think he chose to keep this from her when he is very open about everything else? He also didn’t mention that vampires are venomous. Did it make you think twice since Edward kisses Bella?
- Vampires are drawn to special humans; when those humans become vampires, their special qualities are enhanced. If that is the case, if Bella were to become a vampire, what would her trait be?
- How did you feel about Edward’s confession that he drank from humans for a short period of time? Were you surprised, or were you more like Bella in thinking that it seemed reasonable?
- Edward admits that Alice has seen Bella as a vampire. Why do you suppose, since he of all people knows it’s crazy to deny Alice’s visions, that he is so resistant to giving in and changing Bella? Do you think Bella should be changed right away and leave her life behind, or do you think Edward is being sensible to tell her that her mortality is important and more natural than anything he could give her?
P.P.S. Any suggestions as to what book we should have for February? ;)
