Fear Quotes in Twilight
How we cite our quotes: (Chapter. Paragraph)
[Edward to Bella:] "And you're worried, not because you're headed to meet a houseful of vampires, but because you think those vampires won't approve of you, correct?" (15.110)
Bella is afraid to meet Edward's family – but not because they might eat her. Again, Edward feels that Bella doesn't have a strong enough self-preservation instinct.
[Bella to Edward:] "I hate to burst your bubble, but you're really not as scary as you think you are. I don't find you scary at all, actually." I lied casually. (16.100)
Bella pretends she has no fear of Edward at all. Sometimes we get the feeling that Bella likes being a little frightened by Edward, that it thrills her. What do you think? Would she prefer that he weren't at all dangerous?
