BD Chapter 15. Tick Tock Tick Tock Tick Tock

Key Plot Points from The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide
  • Bella and Charlie talk on the phone; neither Edward nor Jacob condones this
  • Bella asks for Jacob; her face lights up again when she sees him
    Jacob sits next to Bella to keep her warm; Rosalie brings Jacob food in a dog dish
  • Bella says Carlisle thinks the baby will be born within four days
    Jacob feels his ties to Bella get even stronger; Bella thinks that Jacob is supposed to be in her life, but not like this -- like they got off track somehow
  • Edward tells Jacob about old myths that say vampire babies chew their way out of the womb
This chapter has the absolute best scene between Rosalie and Jacob of the entire series...the dog bowl. And of course when he "returns" it, he gets food in her hair. (Unfortunately it doesn't sound like this scene made the final cut of the film...consider me officially bummed.)

Bella's conversation with Jacob about them getting off track is really interesting. It's one of those things. In a world that didn't include Edward, Bella and Jacob would have been meant for each other. They've talked about it before. The interesting thing here is Bella saying that she did something wrong and got them off track.

Interesting that this is the first time they've really talked about how the baby is going to get out. Maybe it's just the first time they considered Bella living long enough to get to that point. And of course, you can't help but wonder if Rosalie is giving any concern to Bella or if it is all about the baby.
