[Edward:] "Listen to me, Alice. I saw his mind. Tracking is his passion, his obsession – and he wants her, Alice – her specifically. He begins the hunt tonight." (18.69)

Everyone is horrified of James. It's not that Edward is frightened for himself, though. He's worried about what James might do to Bella.

Quote #17

[Jasper to Bella:] "Bella, Bella, stop," he interrupted me, his words pouring out so quickly they were hard to understand. "You're worrying about all the wrong things, Bella. Trust me on this – none of us are in jeopardy. You are under too much strain as it is; don't add to it with wholly unnecessary worries. Listen to me!" he ordered, for I had looked away. "Our family is strong. Our only fear is losing you." (20.49)

Jasper tries to soothe Bella's worries. He claims his family's biggest fear is losing her. Do believe Jasper when he says that the Cullens aren't in danger?

Quote #18

I held up the phone to my ear. My joints were frozen with terror – I couldn't unbend my fingers to drop it. (21.72)

Bella has just gotten off the phone with James. This is real terror. Bella's fear is heightened when she's worried for her mother's safety.
