Quote #10

[Bella to Edward:] "[Alice] was willing to die herself rather than put [Jasper] in danger. Willing for me to die, too. Willing for you to die." (29.104)

Bella seems to accuse Alice of sacrificing anyone's life, including hers, for Jasper. If the roles were reversed between Bella and Alice, do you think Bella would fight for Alice or try to save Edward instead?
