Chapter Discussions: Twilight, Chapter Four – Invitations

 

Oh so conflicted...

Oh so conflicted...

It’s time for another Chapter Discussions post over Twilight. This time it’s Chapter Four, Invitations. These questions come from the hilarious blog Lauren’s Bite and the Twilight Lexicon forums.

1. Why do you think Bella doesn’t want to go to the spring dance? She could easily just have said to anyone, “Let’s just go as friends”. Why is it that from day one, none of the boys appealed to her?

I know none of the boys appealed to her because she had seen Edward the first day of school. After that, who could compare to him? I don’t think she could even have gone with anyone else even as friends because she was so attached to Edward even at the beginning.

2. Bella asks Edward if he has multiple personality disorder because he either seems to be overly friendly or sarcastic moments apart. To what did you attribute Edward’s odd behavior?

I knew Edward was treating Bella that way because he was having conflicting feelings about her. He wanted to be around her, she was all he could think of, but he also knows for sure that to give in to what he wants and be with her would mean bad things for Bella. He’s trying to decide to keep her close or push her away.

This is almost a two part analysis.  Bella was way more mature than any of the children at her school.  Edward and she were on similar maturity levels, and it only makes since to like him, and not the other boys.

Being a boy, I know why guys play like they hate y0u, then also a few minutes later, they like you.  It was pretty simple to me why he was acting like that, even though i thought it was pretty childish… like something i would do. He didn’t want to admit he liked her.

    I don’t think she wants to go for the same reason I never wanted to go: it’s too embarrassing. If you can’t dance, the last place you want to be is a school dance. All those kids trying to get you to dance. If you do you’ll be humiliated, if you don’t you’ll be humiliated just standing there. Besides, she’d be the New Girl at the dance and it would be her first day all over again as they saw Bella dressed up for the first time. Nightmare. Even if Edward hadn’t been there, none of the boys would have appealed because they were paying attention to her and she doesn’t like that kind of attention.

    I assumed he was of two minds. He wanted to be with her so would try to be friends in weaker moments. He also knew he was a danger to her so tried to push her away. Little facial expressions Bella caught but didn’t know what to make of told me that he was very confused, and angry about it.
