TWILIGHT - chapter 9 - THEORY


"Can I ask just one more?" I pleaded as Edward accelerated much too quickly down the quiet street. He didn't seem to be paying any attention to the road.
He sighed.
"One," he agreed. His lips pressed together into a cautious line.
"Well... anda berkata anda knew I hadn't gone into the bookstore, and that I had gone south. I was just wondering how anda knew that."
He looked away, deliberating.
"I thought we were past all the evasiveness," I grumbled.
He almost smiled.
"Fine, then. I followed your scent." He looked at the road, giving me time to karang my face. I couldn't think of an acceptable response to that, but I filed it carefully away for future study. I tried to refocus. I wasn't ready to let him be finished, now that he was finally explaining things.
"And then anda didn't answer one of my first questions..." I stalled.
He looked at me with disapproval "Which one?"
"How does it work - the mind-reading thing? Can anda read anybody's mind, anywhere? How do anda so it? Can the rest of your family...?" I felt silly, asking for clarification on make-believe.
"That's lebih than one," he pointed out. I simply intertwinded my fingers and gazed at him, waiting.
"No, it's just me. And I can't hear anyone, anywhere. I have to be fairly close. The lebih familiar someone's... 'voice' is, the farther away I can hear them. But still, no lebih than a few miles." He paused thoughtfully. "It's a little like being in a huge hall filled with people, everyone talking at once. It's just a hum - a buzzing of voices in the background. Until I focus on one voice, and then what they're thinking is clear.
"Most of the time I tune it all out - it can be very distracting. And then it's easier to seem normal" - he frowned as he berkata the word - "when I'm not accidentally answering someone's thoughts rather than their words."
"Why do anda think anda can't hear me?" I asked curiously.
He looked at me, his eyes enigmatic.
"I don't know," he murmured. "The only guess I have is that maybe your mind doesn't work the same way the rest of theirs do. Like your thoughts are on the AM frequency and I'm only getting FM." He grinned at me, suddenly amused.
"My mind doesn't work right? I'm a freak?" The words bothered me lebih than they should - probably because his speculation hit home. I'd always suspected as much, and it embarrassed me to have it confirmed.
"I hear voices in my head and you're worried that you're the freak," he laughed. "Don't worry, it's just a theory...." His face tightened. "Which brings us back to you."
I sighed. How to begin?
"Aren't we past all the evasions now?" he reminded me softly.
I looked away from his face for the first time, trying to find words. I happened to notice the speedometer.
"Holy crow!" I shouted. "Slow down!"
"What's wrong?" He was startled. But the car didn't decelerate.
"You're going a hundred miles and hour!" I was still shouting. I shot a panicky glance out the window, but it was too dark to see much. The road was only visible in the long patch of bluish brightness from the headlights. The forest along both sides of the road was like a black dinding - as hard as a dinding of steel if we veered off the road at this speed.
"Relax, Bella." He rolld his eyes still not slowing.
"Are anda trying to kill us?" I demanded.
"We're not going to crash."
I tried to modulate my voice. "Why are anda in such a hurry?"
"I always drive like this." He turned to smile crookedly at me.
"Keep your eyes on the road!"
"I've never been in an accident, Bella - I've never even gotten a ticket." He grinned and tapped his forehead. "Built-in radar detector."
"Very funny." I fumed. "Charlie's a cop, remember? I was raised to abide the traffic laws. Besides, if anda turn us into a Volvo pretzel around a pokok trunk, anda can probably just walk away."
"Probably," he agreed with a short, hard laugh. "But anda can't." He sighed, and I watched with relief as the needle gradually drifted toward eighty. "Happy?"
"Almost."
"I hate driving slow," he murmured.
"This is slow?"
"Enough commentary on my driving," he snapped. "I'm still waiting for your latest theory."
I bit my lip. He looked down at me, his honey eyes unexpectedly gentle.
"I won't laugh," he promised.
"I'm lebih afraid that you'll be angry with me."
"Is it that bad?"
"Pretty much, yeah."
He waited. I was looking down at my hands, so I couldn't see his expression.
"Go ahead." His voice was calm.
"I don't know how to start," I admitted.
"Why don't anda start at the beginning... anda berkata anda didn't come up with this on your own."
"No."
"What got anda started - a book? A movie?" he probed.
"No - it was Saturday, at the beach." I risked a glance up at his face. He looked puzzled.
"I ran into an old family friend - Jacob Black," I continued. "His dad and Charlie have been Friends since I was a baby."
He still looked confused.
"His dad is one of the Quileute elders." I watched him carefully. His confused expression froze in place. "We went for a walk - " I edited all my scheming out of the story " - and he was telling me some old legends - trying to scare me, I think. He told me one..." I hesitated.
"Go on," he said.
"About vampires." I realized I was whispering. I couldn't look at his face now. But I saw his knuckles tighten convulsively on the wheel.
"And anda immediately thought of me?" Still calm.
"No. He... mentioned your family."
He was silent, staring at the road.
I was worried suddenly, worried about protecting Jacob.
"He just thought it was a silly superstition," I berkata quickly. "He didn't expect me to think anything of it." It didn't seem like enough; I had to confess. "It was my fault, I forced him to tell me."
"Why?"
"Lauren berkata something about anda - she was trying to provoke me. And an older boy from the tribe berkata anda family didn't come to the reservation, only it sounded like he meant something different. So I got Jacob alone and I tricked it out of him," I admitted, hanging my head.
He startled me sejak laughing. I glared up at him. He was laughing, but his eyes were fierce, staring ahead.
"Tricked him how?" he asked.
"I tried ti flirt - it worked better than I thought it would." Disbelief colored my tone as I remembered.
"I'd like to have seen that." He chuckled darkly. "And anda accused me of dazzling people - poor Jacob Black."
I blushed and looked out my window into the night.
"What did anda do then?" he asked after a minute.
"I did some research on the Internet."
"And did that convince you?" His voice sounded barely interested. But his hands were clamped hard onto the steering wheel.
"No. Nothing fit. Most of it was kind of silly. And then..." I stopped.
"What?"
"I decided it didn't matter," I whispered.
"It doesn't matter?" His tone made me look up - I had finally broken through his carefully composed mask. His face was incredulous, with just a hint of the anger I'd feared.
"No," I berkata softly. "It doesn't matter to me what anda are."
A hard, mocking edge entered his voice. "You don't care if I'm a monster? If I'm not human?"
"No."
 EDWARD & BELLA AT THE PROM
EDWARD & BELLA AT THE PROM
What I think makes Edward & Bella soul mates is Bella's unwavering faith she puts in Edward's restraint to not kill her while she is still a human.

Edward as well as incredible Cinta for Bella which in turn makes him perfect for her and she perfect for him. In every sense of the old saying: They cannot live without each other. This is is made plain in New Moon when Edward leaves Bella in order to protect her form him.

Bella becomes a literal zombie.Devastated sejak Edward's decision to leave her. One of my kegemaran Petikan form New Moon is when Bella says to Edward: "I'd rather die than be with...

 Can't anda see the resemblance? (look at pic of Nessie)
Can't you see the resemblance? (look at pic of Nessie)
1) Ask Victoria if she really wants to kill Bella because she and Edward were together but had a hectic relationship and she was just jealous that he moved on
2) Ask if James really died sejak looking at her
3) Call her Raggedy Ann
4) Tell her that when Charlie found her footprint in the mud, he thought Bigfoot was on the loose in Forks, Washington!
5) Sit seterusnya to her and keep whispering, "James is dead, James is dead, Edward killed him, James is dead, Edward killed him because of Bella...."
6) Advise her to go change only redheaded people so it'll be the 'attack of the Redheads'
7) Tell Victoria that...

I watched her come out of the room where she spent the last week getting better. She walked over to where I stood, waiting to take her to her apartment. I thought about how much Bella had meant to me, how much she had changed me. I thought about how easy it was to forget her now that my existence finally had a true meaning. I remember how I used to think that Bella was the whole point of my existence, how she was what kept me alive, but I now knew that she was just to help me control myself for the only true Cinta I could have. I saw through Sam's mind how Emily was his whole world. I knew...

"WHAT!!!" Renesmee batted her hands in the air wildly .I laughed well at least she took it btter than me i thought. " We berkata happy birthday for being 13 phisically," Edward implied simply. " Akward" Jacob coughed out.
Nessie bit Jacob's " Shut up Dad can have my lempeng, penkek now?" Without looking Edward...

Here is an excerpt from an artikel written sejak A. De Witt, a professional counselor, discussing infatuation and true love. I read several other artikel-artikel on this topic (written sejak psychologists, medical professionals, and theological experts)and many say much of the same thing (except those who are lebih medical in their approach and tend to talk about dopamine, adrenaline, and brain activities as related to infatuation and love). I found it fascinating as it related to the relationships found in the Twilight series:

"Infatuation is like a drug, atau a form of madness. anda are taken over sejak a whirlwind,...
