| Quote #9
[Bella to Jacob:] "Could you… well, try to not be a… werewolf?" I suggested in a whisper. (13.58)
Bella seems to fear that Jacob being a werewolf will change their relationship. Bella wishes that she could have had a normal relationship for once. Part of what she liked about Jake was how innocent, uncomplicated, and human he was. But being a werewolf isn't a choice for Jacob, just like being a vampire isn't a choice for Edward.
