First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was a part of him--and I didn't know how dominant that part might be--that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him
I finish the book on Friday, by night probably-lost track of time. I'm struggling a lot with my revision, but still manage to get time to read the book. It was good, so much better than the movie I think. It fills the gap that the movies left-those unexplained questions that I had after watching the movie. Although some part of the story is just about exactly like how the movie shows it. And that's just one of the reasons I don't like to read a book after I watched the movie. Nonetheless, I still enjoyed it very very much. And the characters are easy to imagine in my mind, thanks to the movie of course-which is good, as my english aren't really perfect, especially on words that describe things-which I suck big time. No dictionary can help me on those.
My favourite character? It's Edward of course. I feel like seeing myself in him, some part of him, yea. The way he thinks, the way he keep out from others,... But he surely have one damn great ability, being able to read minds. But it must be damn boring to be able to do it all the time for a hundred plus years, so it must be a great thing for him to meet Bella.
The vampire family-great! I wouldn't mind joining them if they ever exist, that's IF! Although I'm not in favour of an immortal life. 300+yrs for Carlisle! I wonder how he survived that. Carlisle, Esme, Emmett, Rosalie, Jasper, Alice and Edward-that makes up the Cullens. I really admire Carlisle-his hardship and loneliness during his early days, the personality, his...in short, his humanity more than his 'vampire-ness' (if there's such word). He's just great-so much more 'human' than others.
Right now, I just wish I have more time, more time for my books. I'm currently at Chapter 5 of New Moon. Can't wait to continue. And I'm seriously not feeling good at the moment. I have no idea how I'm feeling now-maybe a mixed of every feeling that exist in this world?! I guess I just need some peaceful time alone I guess, with the exams out of my mind. But no, seriously can't afford to do that-gotta just survived through this and hopefully come out good. Off for now!
"It's twilight," Edward murmured, looking at the western horizon, obscured as it was with clouds. His voice was thoughtful, as if his mind were somewhere far away. I stared at him as he gazed unseeingly out the windshield.
I was still staring when his eyes suddenly shifted back to mine.
"It's the safest time of day for us," he said, answering the unspoken question in my eyes. "The easiest time, but also the saddest, in a way...the end of another day, the return of the night. Darkness is so predictable, don't you think?" He smiled wistfully.
